This task was available in August 2011 in the lead-up to the Veil of Alaris expansion release.

It will be available in September 2014 (Sept. 3-24) as part of "Stone Cold Summer" tasks and a mission.



NOTE: There are multiple versions of this task. Which one you get depends on your level.

This is a shared task (1-6 players) that begins with Arima Fae (click for map image), located near 890, -230 (far north-central boundary of the zone -- due north of the northernmost curve in the path).

Note: You can use Meeka Gharn in the Plane of Knowledge (next to the Main Bank at approximately 410, 465, -124) to port directly to Arima Fae.

You say, 'Hail, Meeka Gharn'

Meeka Gharn says 'Greetings adventurer! I am wondering if you could [help].'

You say, 'Help?'

Meeka Gharn says 'My associate Arima Fae is in danger. He is being sought by the leader of a guild of thieves who calls himself Ven Baga. Arima received a book from Baga thought to lead to many treasures, if it could be deciphered. This was months ago, and now Baga grows impatient and believes Arima is trying to take the treasure for himself. Arima has sent me here to find someone who can help him. He has hired mercenaries for his personal protection, but he needs someone who is capable enough to do some outside work. If you are interested, you will find him in Misty Thicket.'

You have entered The Misty Thicket.

You say, 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says 'You must have been sent by Meeka! Excellent! I have been having trouble finding the clues necessary to decipher this blasted Tome. It doesn't help that Ven Baga and his men are searching for me and making it difficult to travel. Will you [help] me?'

You say, 'I will help.'

Arima Fae says 'Excellent! I'll make sure you are handsomely rewarded for your efforts. Should we find anything, I will gladly cut you in on whatever we find. Now, to the [business] at hand.'

You say, 'Business?'

Arima Fae says 'I am certain that this Tome is related to the [statues] that have been appearing in Norrath. I will need you to track down and find these statues and see what clues you can get from them. I would go myself, but I suspect that Baga will no doubt think the same thing and be waiting for me. But you? I am sure you can handle a couple of low-rent thugs. Will you [do this] for me?'

You say, 'I will do this.'

Arima Fae says 'Your help is much appreciated! '

You have been assigned the task 'Only The Blind Will See [35]'.

Arima is looking for information about unusual statues that have been appearing throughout Norrath. He has asked for your help in investigating them.



Speak with Flightfire 0/1 (Erud's Crossing)

You are sent to speak with Flightfire in Erud's Crossing, located off the dock at -1655, 950, 35.

You say, 'Hail, Flightfire'

Flightfire says 'I heard there were some folks looking for for odd statues. I did see one while crossing through the mountains to the High Keep. I suppose it might be what you are looking for. I started a camp near it, but decided to move on another hour rather than try to sleep in its shadow.'



Find the statue that Flightfire was talking about 0/1 (East Karana)

Head to East Karana, near the first tower coming down the ramp from High Keep (about -1735, -6035, 395).



Speak with Arima Fae 0/1 (Misty Thicket)

You say, 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says 'Well, that's unfortunate, but expected. I've been following hundreds of false leads. I've got another one for you. I've heard that one of the Irontoe brothers, or cousins, or whatever, has been talking about strange statues to one of the many barkeeps that they visit. I need you to go and talk to one of those barkeeps and see if you can find out which Irontoe it was and what they might have said.'



Speak with Dray Cuves 0/1 (Abysmal Sea)

You are sent to the Abysmal Sea to speak with Dray Cuves, who may be found on the the deck below the magus to the west at -155, 180, 115.

You say, 'Hail, Dray Cuves'

Dray Cuves says 'I am familiar with the Irontoes. They come in frequently enough. They never talk about statues, though. If you're asking about folks that talk about statues, I did have a few fellows come in recently asking about statues. I had no idea what they were talking about. They looked like a rough lot, but if you are interested in talking to them, all I can say is that they headed below decks after talking to me.'

Find the thugs that were interested in statues 0/1 (Abysmal Sea)

Head to an update location in the third room across the hall from the jewelry vendors.

Defeat Ambushing Thieves 0/3 (Abysmal Sea)

These spawn three at a time until you've killed three.

Give Arima the note you found 0/1 (Misty Thicket)

Arima Fae says 'Oh, I see you found some of Ven's bunch. I guess I may as well tell you what I can. You see, those thugs had an invaluable text because I think I can figure out how to read it. But to get it from them I had to tell them a small lie. I told them that the text would lead me to great treasure once I deciphered the language. Unfortunately it has taken longer than I expected to decipher the language. Not that there is any real treasure to be found, at least not for thugs like them. I wonder if we can use this to our [advantage]...'

You say 'Advantage?'

Arima Fae says 'Yes. Yes! It sounds like they've been looking for me by seeking the statues that I've been looking for. I suspect that they have people all over waiting near possible statues. If they have found one of the statues I seek then maybe we can find out where it is from them! Go find my contact in Kithicor Forest. He'll know where they think they can ambush me. Get that information from him and then go there and find the statue! I am quite brilliant, I must admit.'



Question Thimble, Arima's contact in the rogue thieves guild 0/1 (Kithicor Forest)

Thimble can be found in the merchant cabin with Darvon & Grace near the Commonlands zone line:

You say 'Hail, Thimble Thrasher'

Thimble Thrasher says 'I can't take it anymore! Everyone pressuring me to find Arima, find some stupid statues, do everything or we'll kill you! Enough already! I give up. I'll tell you where Ven thinks the statue is. Anything to get you away from me!'

Search for a mysterious statue 0/1 (North Ro)

The statue in North Ro is at 7247, -2628, 60. Far east side of zone, top of the beach. As soon as you step next to the statue and it updates the three thugs will pop and attack, no warning, no searching around.

Defeat Ambushing Thieves 0/3 (North Ro)

Location needed.

Fight is same as above.



Talk to Arima Fae 0/1 (Misty Thicket)

You say, 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says 'You are back! And found a dragon scale? Hmm... Take the scale to Loneq Vardrin in West Karana. He is a... dragonologist. He might be able to help us.'



Speak with Loneq Vardrin 0/1 (West Karana)

Loneq Vardrin is in West Karana at /loc 1325, -9625 (due north of Chief Goonda and the Ogre's).

You say, 'Hail, Loneq Vardrin'

Loneq Vardrin says 'Arima sent ya did he? What does dat man want now?'

Give the scale to Loneq 0/1 (West Karana)

Upon turn-in:

Loneq Vardrin says 'Ah... He constantly ridicules Loneq's work an' yet he sands ya ta Loneq for help? (Sigh) I am only helpin' ye 'cause dis is easy. I am quite familiar wit dis scale. It belongs to a dragon named Mianoanoc. But I am not seein' how dat will help ya much. Mianoanoc does nae like people much. But dat is Arima's problem. Now git! And I will be keepin' dis scale too!'



Talk to Arima Fae 0/1 (Misty Thicket)

You say, 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says, 'Mianoanoc? I've heard the name. He is not a very sociable dragon, from what I hear. But he must know something if he has been messing around with that statue. Last I heard he was seen around Innothule Swamp. You must find him and find out what he knows. In fact, I have a spell that can send you straight to the swamp when you are [ready]. Oh, and you can offer him a cut of the treasure if that will help get the information from him.'

You say, 'Ready!'

Arima Fae says 'Best of luck to you! Remember, offer him anything you must, but get me that information.'

You enter an instanced version of Innothule Swamp where you'll find a dragon named Mianoanoc.

Convince Mianoanoc to tell you about the statue 0/1 (Innothule Swamp)

A full group is recommended here. You'll need to DPS the dragon to 20% health to update the task.

Mianoanoc shouts 'I have watched you bumble about searching for something among the statues around Norrath. Arima is a fool! Yes, I know of Arima and his search. He believes the book he carries has something to do with the statues, and about that he is correct. It is not treasure to which it leads. That book is the history of the statues called the Blind Dreamers, why they are statues, and where they are from. Arima is unable to decipher it not because it is some code, but because it is a long forgotten language, the language of Alaris.'

Mianoanoc shouts 'I am sworn not to talk about those creatures, and I will never break that oath. I will tell you this, however. If the Blind Dreamers are here, that can only mean trouble. They seek that which they once had and no doubt they will go to any lengths to get. Count yourself warned, mortals. I faced these foes long ago. Their power was great even then. To repay you for your treatment of me I will tell you that those statues are sometimes referred to as observer stones in the book Arima holds. Knowledge is power, and if you unravel that book, the power you find will most certainly kill you.'

Talk to Arima Fae 0/1 (Misty Thicket)

You say 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says 'I am surprised that dragon told you anything! Between us, I knew the book did not lead to any treasure, but I had to tell Ven Baga something in order for him to give it to me. But after what that dragon told you, I am confident I am on the right trail. Thank you. Talk to Helagan if you are up to something a little more dangerous!'

Loneq Vardrin's location would better be described as due north of Chief Goonda and the Ogre's. The current description makes it sound like he's all the way near the North Karana zone line.

I parsed the fight with Mianoanoc and it took my level 38 paladin 1048 seconds (almost 18 mins). His lowly Blade of Disruption only got him about 24 dps, according to GamParse. Mia had about 25k-26k hp, and he did about 61k dmg to my paladin. Thankfully, my healer merc was up to the challenge.
