    This task is the second in a series of three that begins with Scholar Kintorom at the zone-in of The Library.

    You must have completed his prior task, "Interview with a Scholar" before being able to get this one.

    You say, 'Hail, Scholar Kintorom'

    Scholar Kintorom says 'The book you brought me is amazing! It describes ancient events that I have never seen recorded previously. Unfortunately, the book only covers a small time period. I would theorize this book is part of a larger [set].'

    You say, 'A set?'

    Scholar Kintorom says 'There must be more of these books in the library. The binding appears to be unique so they should be easy to find. Would you be willing to venture inside once again and [locate] more books from this set?'

    You say, 'I'll locate them'

    Scholar Kintorom says 'Excellent! I eagerly await your return.'

    You have been assigned the task 'History of the World, Part 2'.

    Scholar Kintorom is fascinated by the book you brought him and theorizes it to be part of a larger set. He has asked you to enter the library any books which match the appearance of 'Volume 791'.



    Find Volume 763 somewhere in the Library 0/1 (The Library)

    Find Volume 732 somewhere in the Library 0/1 (The Library)

    Find Volume 689 somewhere in the Library 0/1 (The Library)

    Find Volume 655 somewhere in the Library 0/1 (The Library)

    Find Volume 612 somewhere in the Library 0/1 (The Library)

    Find Volume 588 somewhere in the Library 0/1 (The Library)

    Bring Volume 763 back to Scholar Kintorom 0/1 (The Library)

    Bring Volume 732 back to Scholar Kintorom 0/1 (The Library)

    Bring Volume 689 back to Scholar Kintorom 0/1 (The Library)

    Bring Volume 655 back to Scholar Kintorom 0/1 (The Library)

    Bring Volume 612 back to Scholar Kintorom 0/1 (The Library)

    Bring Volume 588 back to Scholar Kintorom 0/1 (The Library)

    NOTE: While you're doing this task, "an enraged historian" will occasionally spawn in the hall to the west of the scholars room and aggro the person with the task. You'll see a red emote when it becomes aggro on you. (He can spawn even if you haven't picked up any books.)

    The enraged historian isn't social with other mobs, so you can be in a safe corner or hall and only deal with the one mob. It hits for a max ~6,000 and drops "Volume 588".

    Groundspawn locations for "thulelibrary" map file:

    P -138.1200, 45.4044, -26.3481, 0, 0, 0, 3, 763

    P -36.9275, -75.1099, 35.4108, 0, 0, 0, 3, 612

    In-game /locations:

    -45, 140, -25
    -45, 175, -25
    95, 195, -3
    100, 235, 2
    75, 35, 35

    Speak to Scholar Kintorom 0/1 (The Library)

    You say, 'Hail, Scholar Kintorom'

    Scholar Kintorom says 'I was correct! These are all part of a lengthy set of books chronicling the history of Norrath. I will need some time to look these over. Check back with me shortly.'

    You successfully located several books matching 'Volume 791', proving this was a set of books.

    second half of quest quick guide

    this will make things easier. rather than using /loc or reading all the comments, here is a quick follow list for the books (volumes)
    5 books are on other books or tables. 1 book is looted after killing an npc which only aggros when someone has done this quest (or is currently doing this quest).
    the books on the ground you left click to pick up are on a 1 minute respawn timer.

    from the beginning of the zone (starting from the quest giver, count the rooms not counting the area the quest giver is standing (which isn't really a room))
    --a book is in the second room near the bottom of the steps on a table
    --a book is also in that second room in the second half of the room near the stairs going up on stacks of books.
    --a book is in the third room almost exactly where Varesa K`Zen is looking on a stack of books pretty high up
    --a book is in that same third room in the middle of the room on a knee high square table
    --a book is looted from the npc which spawns in side hallways off of that third room. you have to kill this mob over and over to get the books for multiple characters. this mob is on a 1 or 5 minute repop timer
    --the last book is in the next room after you go up another flight of stairs (3rd to last room) on the southern side of the room on a table. there is a rotdog right next to the book

    i hope this helps! this quest i've done multiple times and it keeps taking longer than it should because i didn't have a list of this part before now. there are kos see invis npcs which are sometimes there and sometimes not there (not only nameds see invis), so having a way to teleport away after aggroing or get out of combat and invis is very helpful. i don't think there are any undead in this zone so normal invis is all which is needed. the fastest way to do this quest is to invis and do this entire quest stopping and killing anything which sees invis, then reinvising and finishing the quest. the third room is a bad room to fight in, so if you get aggro in the 3rd room, pull the mobs to a side room to kill them. the mobs in 3rd room yell or something, and you end up fighting the entire room even if you only aggroed a few. this is a very easy quest to do the higher lvl you are given that not many people visit this zone nowadays.

    park group at safe location - get quest with one member of group only
    Move to safe location
    wait for enranged historian to pop and run to the person who has the quest - (While he does not pass agro on to any mob Most mobs are KOS and so if the enranged historian drops your invis all mobs within agro range will attack. For this reason best to wait for him in safe location - NOT ZONE IN - as he dosent pop untill u move deep into the zone) When he is dead and loot, invis, pick up all other books and then hand them in to questgiver.

    This works perfectly, no problems at all as an 86/1200 Wizard and 85/450 Mage, plus mercs.

    Only thing I'd add is that the time between the emote and the mob showing up was, at least in our case, very brief. So make sure you know where you want to fight him, and can get there quickly. We had the Mage pre-positioned where we wanted to fight. I grabbed quest, he CoH'd, and the mob was there within a few seconds.

    When it comes to the "an enraged historian" know also that if you get the drop from him, and turn it in to questgiver that it will again become active. The check to spawn him is apparently only blocked if the person in range does not have the page he drops. So make sure you turn in his page at the end, the ground spawns can be turned in at any point along the quest without any negative effects.

    After you pick up "Volume 689", "an enraged historian" will spawn in the most western hall near quest npc: Tarlyn Caelith. The mob will eventually agro the person who picked up Volume 689. It does not agro any surrounding mobs, so you can be in a safe corner/hall and only deal with the one mob.
