|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the final task in a series of five. It begins with the Spirit of Erud in Erudin Burning. He is located at about -340, 310 (in the area south of the dock area, along with several other quest NPCs).
You must have completed the previous four tasks, "Heretics Among Us", "The Fallen Citadel", "Erudin's Apocalypse", and "The Destroyers' Den" prior to being able to request this one.
You say, 'Hail, Spirit of Erud'
Spirit of Erud says 'Hail, traveler. Perhaps you have come to gawk at the fallen demi-god, the man who thought he could persuade mortals to embrace a better existence? I am nothing, I have failed. The Heretics, always so certain of themselves and their answers for everything, have utterly destroyed my city and all that I sought to establish for the betterment of not just the Erudites but all the people of Norrath. All is lost. Given that the city is being destroyed there is but one thing that would set my soul at ease in this dark hour: knowing that the five foundational tomes of Erudite civilization are intact and in safekeeping. Will you [undertake] the task of locating and returning these sacred tomes of my city, before the Heretics destroy them?'
You say, 'I'll undertake this task'
Spirit of Erud says 'I am most pleased. Seek them out in the Library of Erudin, and bring them to Arbin Derrex. He will see to their safekeeping and restoration.'
You have been assigned the task 'Raiders of the Sacred Tomes'.
Kill 5 of the Heretic pillagers 0/5 (Erudin Burning)
Loot the Tome of Eternal Love 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
Loot the Tome of Martial Necessity 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
Loot the Tome of Intellectual Grace 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
Loot the Tome of Spiritual Improvement 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
Loot the Catechism of Erud 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
Heretic pillagers spawn in and around the perimeter of the library (the building in the center area of the southern part of the zone). The tomes may only be dropped by certain spawns.
There are two pillagers just west of the library entrance, two on the first floor, and one on the second floor.
Tome of Eternal Love (can also drop from a Heretic ravager)
Tome of Martial Necessity (from the second floor pillager)
Tome of Intellectual Grace (one of the pillagers outside the west entrance of the library)
Tome of Spiritual Improvement (bottom floor of the library, single spawn on southeast side)
Catechism of Erud (from the pillager in the southwestern corner of the library's bottom floor)
Deliver the Tome of Eternal Love to General Arbin Derrex 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
General Arbin Derrex says 'Excellent, you've found the Tome of Eternal Love. It is the ancient guide given by Erud to his people, for the betterment of one's most intimate relationships. I shall see that this tome is secured at once.'
Deliver the Tome of Martial Necessity to General Arbin Derrex 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
General Arbin Derrex says 'The Tome of Martial Necessity, my favorite of the ancient Tomes. Erud was wise enough to recognize that any society, no matter how advanced or liberal in its intellectual posture, must still take care to defend itself with force as the situation warrants. It is good that we have retrieved this Tome.'
Deliver the Tome of Intellectual Grace to General Arbin Derrex 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
General Arbin Derrex says 'Yes, it is very good to see that the Tome of Intellectual Grace has not been rendered to ashes. Erud had much to say about the proper way to order one's mind in this sacred volume. This tome shall be placed under guard with the Deepwater Knights.'
Deliver the Tome of Spiritual Improvement to General Arbin Derrex 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
General Arbin Derrex says 'You have found the Tome of Spiritual Improvement. Certainly, a controversial work, but one that seems to explain the relationship between mortals and magic to a degree. We are lucky it survives.'
Deliver the Catechism of Erud to General Arbin Derrex 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
General Arbin Derrex says 'How fortunate that the Catechism of Erud is now back in our possession. Within these pages, Erud describes how to behave in order to live up to his idea of a true Erudite citizen. Had this original Tome been lost, Erudite civilization might have become easily fragmented and vulnerable to cultural schisms.'
Speak with General Arbin Derrex 0/1 (Erudin Burning)
You say, 'Hail, to General Arbin Derrex'
General Arbin Derrex says 'The survivors of Erudin are lucky indeed that you took it upon yourself to rescue these five tomes from the marauding Heretics. If Erud's spirit were watching over us, I'd say he would be very pleased. You have brought back the essence of our civilization. There is no appropriate way to thank you for saving these precious works, but perhaps these coins and items will suffice.'
