Vurgo is standing at /loc 356, 87 in the Temple of Solusek Ro.

You say, 'Hail, Vurgo'

Vurgo says 'Welcome! I am Vurgo, follower of Solusek Ro and holder of the [harvester] and the [Words of Darkness].'

You say, 'What Words of Darkness?'

Vurgo says 'I can scribe for you the Words of Darkness, but you will need to bring me the correct [word components].'

You say, 'what word components?'

Vurgo says 'The first thing that I need is a shadowed book from our mortal enemies, the shadowed men.'

A Shadowed Book is a very rare drop from Shadowed Men in several old world zones.

After handing Vurgo A Shadowed Book:


Vurgo says 'A shadowed book! Well done! The more banished shadowed men the better. As the items of the shadowed men tend to disappear, I have given you a note to remind me that you have indeed supplied me with a book. Give me the note with the following items, and I will scribe for you Words of Darkness: a book of darkness from the Erudites in the tower by Lake Rathe, a book of frost from the icy goblin in Permafrost Keep and 300 golden coins. Bring me these items, and I will scribe for you the Words of Darkness.'

Your faction standing with Temple Of Sol Ro has been adjusted by 1.
Your faction standing with Shadowed Men has been adjusted by -1.

You receive a Note (identifies as "A Note"). Go hunt erudites near the tower in Lake Rathetear until you find a Book of Frost. Note that killing them has the following faction hits:

-Guards of Qeynos
-Order of Three
+Bloodsabers
+Opal Darkbriar

After handing Vurgo a Book of Darkness (from Cyanelle in Lake Rathetear), a Book of Frost, 300 gold piece, and his Note:


Vurgo says 'Solusek Ro does not believe in half measures.'
Vurgo says 'Solusek Ro does not believe in half measures.'
Vurgo says 'Solusek Ro does not believe in half measures.'
Vurgo says 'All of the necessary components for me to scribe the Words of Darkness! Very good, adventurer. Take your tome, you have earned it.'

Your faction standing with Temple Of Sol Ro has been adjusted by 1.
Your faction standing with Shadowed Men has been adjusted by -1.
You gain experience!!

Then levant to perma zone line and run to magus, port to commonlands and one of the shadowmen there had the book in hand. Very lucky i am indeed. Nice little quest. Good luck to others who my try.

If anyone has had this item drop in the past month please post. I have killed around 200 shadowed men and haven't seen one yet. If it still drops, it is definitely rare. In all those kills I have only seen the shadowed vial twice so that seems to be rare also. It seems like SK or WC are the places to camp this since most people have gotten the item there. I have been in SK for hours today and nothing. Going to try WC tomorrow /sigh

Edit: Camped WC/Kithcor for about 3 hours...would kill all spawns in WC then run to kith kill all spawns...repeat...was timed where I would get back to each spawn right about when mobs were popping. Sadly, no book. I am done for today...maybe will try somemore tomorrow.

Edit: Book still drops I have had very bad luck though. Got the Book today, thinking it could be MQed to my necro. I turned in shadowed book to vurgo he gave me note...I ran my necro to vurgo...he was indiffernt faction and talked to vurgo without problem. I logged on main turned in frost darkness books and note...then logged on necro turned in 300 gold and Vurgo says "Solesuk Ro doesn't reward half deeds." or something similar. Logged back on main...had words on darkness in my inventory. /sigh back to camping

Ok for all you NUMB NUTZ out there who don't look up EACH ITEM..

The Shadow book is NO RENT.

This means if you go for that book FIRST you are crazy. Get the other 2 books. Once you have those then camp the shadowmen for the last book (no rent) and do turn in.

Incase you dont know,... No Rent means if you log off and are gone more then 30 min the item goes POOF!
RE: Numb Nutz
# Apr 10 2005 at 3:41 PM Rating: Good
I'm sorry, you're dumb - and obviously never done this quest.

Vurgo gives you a note in exchange for the book, because the book is No Rent. The hand-in itself is NOT done with the book, but with the note along with the other items.

Camp the book every chance you get, just be ready to run on over and turn in the book if you get it.

Do the quest, then come comment.

Its easy to keep a no rent item. Just duel someone before you log off, die, and loot everything except the no rent item.

Used to be that would only work for a week, but now, with shadowrest, you can save items basically as long as needed this way.

I did this quest last night with my lvl 27 Necromancer. Between the 2 turnins (Shadowbook first and then the rest of the items) I got 2.5 blue bubbles of xp at lvl 27. Very nice.

The book is also an instant clicky and can be cast while on the run. Very nice. Now it's time to camp Jboots!

The Quest took me about 2 hours total. I had to wait for 3 spawns of the Icy Goblin. The Eurdite in Lake Rathetear dropped that book on the 1st try and the shadowmen dropped the book after the 3rd spawn cycle in South Karana.

You have to hand a weapons to a charmed shadow man who is visibly holding a book. The books still seem kinda rare but I didn't get any books when I didnt force them to de-equip the book.

Definitely a myth. You get a book by killing lots of shadow men, its that simple. I seriously seriously doubt that giving anything to shadow men effects the drop rate of any item. I've killed probably a couple thousand now while farming essence and have seen the book drop many times. Its probably a very rare drop (1 in 100), because I definitely don't see it as commonly as the other loot. Rapiers are a dime a dozen in comparison.
RE: omg
# Oct 04 2003 at 8:27 PM Rating: Decent
Handing a weapon to a charmed shadowed man is an old wives' tale, probably from beta when nothing was certain. I got two books from the shadowed men in WC in under an hour, maybe 40min max, without charming or handing anything to them. I had also gotten 2 hands and saw 3 eyes drop.

On the other hand, I didn't get book, eye or hand from the shadowed men in Nektulos in the hour and a half that I was there.

You don't have to do anything to get a book to drop. Reportedly you can increase the chances that a book will drop by force-feeding a shadow man weapons, but it isn't required.

I got my book just by killing them. Nothing special.

Can anyone confirm this quest as working? Noone I know ever looted a shadowed book off the shadowed men, and I cannot find any information about it here on allakhazam either.

*EDIT* --> Book found.

On Wednesday, Oct 28, some friends looted 2 of the shadowed books while waiting for their rapier.

Now I'm off to see if I can get the one from permafrost.

Just MQ'd this for my necro last night (ranger got all the books, necro just had the 300gold) It does work from the inventory, and is instant-casting. I killed a LOT of shadowmen before the book dropped, if you need the book, i would HAVE to recommend WC. I killed the innothule and lesser fay Shadowmen about 3 hours each, with no luck. I was about to give up on the book in WC and camped for a bit. Came back about 30 minutes later and a druid was camping them for the rapier, and said one had just rotted =/ So i decided to hang around and test my luck. Miraculously, about 15 minutes later another dropped, at the same time as the druids rapier, so i call her my lucky druid now ;)

All in all, great item, especially on a lower level necro, if you can take camping those shadowedmen for a while.

When you turn in the Shadowed book you recieve a note back. Then you turn in the note + book of darkness + book of frost, and then have your alt hand in the 30p. Worked for me doing it that way.

HP on Cyanelle? (mage)
# Apr 13 2002 at 12:45 AM Rating: Decent

Ok, so I know she melee's for 117, nukes like a normal 30 mage, her friend (Eldreth, a wiz) nukes like a 49wiz (w/ Ice Comet?) and melee's for 90.

My question is, does Cyanelle have the HIT POINTS of a level 30 mage? Which would be 500-600?

Basically I ask this because I have a level 60 wiz and 55 dru friend who are willing to help me - provided I can get all the info needed for this kill (seems to be the toughest - druid and I invised to Icy Goblin in Permafrost...but he didnt have the book that time we killed him)

So, if 60wiz pulls with a big nuke, closely followed by a 55druid nuke and then followed by a 43war melee (prolly will open with Oggok Cleaver for MASS opening dmg...hopefully enough to kill) - can we take her down easy?
After she dies, i plan on logging my war and gettin on necro to loot book from corpse...

Can it be done? Me thinks so...but I just need some more input.

Last night, myself (53 warrior), a 44 monk, and 42 wizzard killed her. She WAS assisted by the wizzard, which is the only reason it was at all tricky. We had her dead in 16 seconds, In a total of 35 seconds we were gated out with the book in hand, with both her and her pet dead, but the wizzard allive and unharmed.

From this and that she maybe landed one hit on me, that she really is as easy as people post here. The 1k hp loss was pretty much the wizzards doing.
RE: HP on Cyanelle? (mage)
# Apr 15 2002 at 11:37 AM Rating: Default
She was so easy it was funny I soloed her (wiz didnt assist me) at lvl 50 or so (as a necro). Take yer wiz walk in and Blast her. she'll either be dead or running of by then. Her wuzzard friend shouldnt assist as you are to high a lvl.

Shouldnt need the druid or the war there at al

begins to work at 20 - which is the same level necro the spell


**For those who are complaining about the level 20 limit - this item is not for twinking...it is most useful when used to SAVE A SPELL SLOT!
In my set-up, Fear and AoD share the same slot (#6) so it's hard for me to fear-kite and have AoD up - with this book I can have fear memmed AND have AoD up with no troubles!!

For the record, I've had 2 books drop off the WC shadow men without using the weapon trick. If you buy into the theory that some shadow men drop some items more than others, this might be the place to go.

If the WC guys drop it more often then the others, then I shutter to think what the drop rate on the others are. I've been killing WC shadowed men for 6 hours a night for 6 nights now and I've never seen one

8 days and counting. No books. This is rediculous

By the way, I believe Eldreth is for the Cleric epic, so I would guess that if you kill him, you might **** off some Clerics.

I did that portion of the quest at 32 and was 31 by the time i finished with Cyanelle. Here is how i did it:

Went invis into room... drop invis for aggro of both Eldreth and Cyanelle (make sure someone gave you Sow). Ran like **** toward zone and died. However, this pulled Eldreth out of tower to edge of island. Accidentally aggroed Eldreth on CR, but that just ended up pulling him over to the dock and i didnt die so was actually good. Now to take down Cyanell: I tried to darkness fear dot pet her, but she resisted too much and pet was a pain and i died first time. Changed tactic to send pet in on her (pet will die), fear her pet, then dot her with all dots, med a sec, my pet died and she came in melee range... 2 spirit taps and she was dead and i was at less than 1/2 health so i FD with my last mana. I think pet poofed after FD cause i never saw it again. Buffs i had on: shielding and leatherskin without leatherskin i would not have been able to keep up with her damage output. If you can wait to 34 to get this, do so, and u will have steelskin + better pet + root. I would highly recommend 34 and a couple bubs exp into it to do this quest. You say why would I want at 34 with Call of Bones... so I dont have to mem a slot for it particularly in zones with multiple types of mobs like LGuk (dead/live frogs).

Do not listen to what the description says about the Erudite mage/wizard part of this quest. I just went there last night (34 DE Necro) expecting it to be fairly easy. The mage (her name is Cyanelle) melee punches for 117 and she is lvl 30 not lower 20's, and she has a pet. She almost killed me. So i brought a 52 Druid over to help me out. He killed the mage. The wizard killed him 3 times. Turns out the Wizard (name is Eldreth) melee punches for 130's and one nuke does about 504 damage. He has ice comet. He is really level 49! he conned dark blue to the druid. Finally, a 55 cleric and the 52 druid killed the wizard, but they both went OOM and it took a while, this guy was TOUGH, they had to ensnare and fear, and he has a ton of HP. I dont even know if this guy drops the book of darkness cause i got mine from the mage, but i hear he is actually for someone's Epic quest. I kinda doubt he does drop it cause it would take a high 50's necro to solo him, and quest is meant for 30's or 40's necro.

It IS multi questable. I did quest with 50 druid, handed in pieces to Vurgo. Logged out and logged in baby Necro. Gave npc the coin, bam, got words.

Every necromancer should own this. 45 Mana is ALOT of juice at lower levels, and it saves a spot in the icons for another spell. Great item.

The goblin camp in perma is *** though. You'll either get lucky and get the book within a few kills, or you'll be there for hours :(

There is no doubt this is a cool item and looks good when equiped. You can't really balk at the Mana +45 that you get with this. Additionally, Allure is a nice safe spell for those of us who do not know how to handle the major regen of CoB.

I write this however,after reading many posts from so many necros saying that CoB is dangerous to use and they almost kill themsleves using it, etc. I'm at a loss as to the source of the problems unless it simply stems from failure to understand how to manage this much more powerful mana regeneration spell. Personally, by the time I got to 34 I was so ready to get CoB it hurt. Allure provided almost no real mana regen capability worth mentioning and did not cut downtime very much at all. When I got CoB, it was a godsend.

Im sure everyone has their own style. So far mine has never gotten me even closed to killed. Only time I had a problem was when I was playing gems while medding and did not look at the hp bar until I was at one bubb. But hey, that was my fault not the spell. Personally, I always have it mem'd as a spell and I always have it on during the whole fight. That way I am getting extra mana even when standing up. Only time I take it off is when I get to two bubbs hp. Otherwise, its skell city. I solo Uthorks in EW in 36 and 37 this way. I usually end the fight with about 3 bubbs of mana using the root-dot method with my pet standing by for back up fear kite if need be or mana is low. YOu lead with Vamp Curse to offset the effect of CoB and then proceed to root DoT (with Dooming as my pull spell). Have spirit tap up incase you want to augment VC. Simply root, DoT and med while the mob dies. I usually cast about 2 VC's during the fight and end with a VC when almost dead to offset CoB hp effect during downtime. This works wonders. I use the same tactic in Overthere and almost all situations. It never fails me. Only had the CoB bug one time so far and I use it alot. Simply recasted and ducked. No problem.

Good luck all you CoB'ers. Say Hi sometime if your near by I will be the dude that looks like a skelly 90% of the time.

There was once a time when Call of Bones was bugged. The reason a majority of the people who complain about it getting them killed is even after clicking it off, you life would continue to plummet. Of course if you aren't being attacked, you know you have clicked the spell off, and you are busy chasing down a feared mob you aren't really looking at your health at the time. (After all, nothing is hitting you so everything should be safe.) Next thing ya know, you are unconscious and have no clue why.

Just so you know, Vurgo *WILL* accept 30PP, in place of the 300GP.

I finished this today. Handed in the note and books. (Forgot about the coins. Once I finished cursing that the quest was broken, I check here...) Opened my wallet to find lots of PP and very little GP. Handed over 30PP. (hoping...) And got the book.

Hope that saves ya luging a small mountain of GP.

AlAaraaf.

Because its part of the rogue EPIC.
You give the male eruidit some PP some milk and a note and he gives back a translated note for rogues epic.
