This is a group task (3-6 players). It is the third task (the first two being solo) in a series of three and begins with Scholar Kintorom at the zone-in of The Library.

You must have completed his prior two tasks before being able to request this one.

Note: Your group's average level may need to be higher than 87. If that's the case, please let us know.

You say, 'Hail Scholar Kintorom'

Scholar Kintorom says 'These books you brought seem to chronicle the entire history of Norrath through the ages! Given that these volumes are numbered, there must be a first volume. If I am correct, this book would have the answers to the [origins] of Norrath and the Gods!'

You say, 'Norrath's origins?'

Scholar Kintorom says 'Can you imagine it? My life's work will finally be complete once I get that book. We must find out where it is. Will you help me fulfill my [dream]?'

You say, 'I'll help you fulfill the dream...'

Scholar Kintorom says 'I knew I could count on you! Perhaps Assistant Librarian Vesrad can help.'

You have been assigned the task 'Book of Secrets'.

Now that Scholar Kintorom has proven this to be a set of books, he wants to get his hands on 'Volume 1'. He believes this book will contain the answers he is looking for.



Inquire with Assistant Librarian Vesrad regarding Volume 1 0/1 (The Library)

The Assistant is found towards the top of the library (he's the drakkin in a red robe below the spiral staircase).

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

Question Assistant Librarian Vesrad about the authenticity of Volume 1 0/1 (The Library)

On hailing the Assistant, 2x "a library watcher" spawn and attack.

Destroy the library watchers 0/2 (The Library)

They hit for a max ~6,500.

NOTE: The task locks after you kill the second watcher.

Demand an explanation from Assistant Librarian Vesrad 0/1 (The Library)

You say, 'Hail, Assistant Librarian Vesrad'

Assistant Librarian Vesrad says 'The Encyclopedia Norrathica is forbidden to mortals! You cannot be allowed to read it!'

Kill Assistant Librarian Vesrad 0/1 (The Library)

He hits for a max ~7,000.

Tell Scholar Kintorom about the Encyclopedia Norrathica 0/1 (The Library)

You say, 'Hail, Scholar Kintorom'

Scholar Kintorom says 'The Encyclopedia Norrathica? So that's what we've been searching for. We must confront the head librarian!'

You learned of the existence of the Encyclopedia Norrathica. This book has the knowledge Scholar Kintorom seeks.
Your faction standing with Dream Delvers got better.

Anyone know if the watchers are rootable? Trying to figure out how to duo this with a friend, without any croud control. No way we can tank both mobs at once.

I have boxed this task with 3 lvl 90 characters and 3 90 T5 mercs. Tried it today with ONE level 86 in group (rest all lvl 90). and He said you do not seem ready to proceed. I have done this dozens of times... so thinking you HAVE to be at least 87 to do this task.
easy task

I am not sure what makes a solo task . But i tried to get this task with a level 90 cleric and merc. But could not get the task. I received the message - " You can not be assigned this shared task because your party does not contain the minimum required number of players."

Hailing Vesrad and spawning the two watchers agro'ed the entire room on our attempt. It is advisable to clear the room first.

Had an issue with this task. Our chanter was using beguilers directed banishment to CC one of the golems and ended up pushing him... well we're not really sure where. He just went poof. Maybe it had something to do with despawning after a certain amount of time if it doesn't have aggro (since BDB memblurs too). The task above is slightly off in that it should be "Destroy the library watchers 0/2 (The Library)". Anyway we got one updated but then had to hail again to spawn 2 more watchers so we could get the second update.

See invis mobs can make getting up to the assistant a pain. Once you get up there however there is only one roamer that goes into the small room before the staircase room, so you can clear that mob and then pull the rest of the staircase room to there.

Tried to get this task with my group all 86 except one, states Party's average level is to low. I'll level them to 87 and see if that helps.
