This is the second in a series of three; a solo task that begins with Chancellor Corcelia in the Resplendent Temple, located at 1700, -15, -22 (inside the front door if coming in from Sarith).

Pre-requisites for requesting the task:
- Completion of "The Light Within"
- 73 Skill Level in Alaran

You say, 'Hail, Chancellor Corcelia'

Without pre-requisites:

Chancellor Corcelia completely ignores your presence.

With pre-requisites:

Chancellor Corcelia gestures to alir spotless surroundings, 'As you can see, we like to keep the temple in pristine shape. It's what Ladrys aleself would want, and what we should all strive to attain. It's an initiate's duty to [help] keep the temple clean and free from... undesirables.'

You say, 'How can I help?'

Chancellor Corcelia says, in Alaran, 'It would do you a world of good to familiarize yourself with the temple, making a note of areas that are off limits to initiates and recruits.' The Nitore's grin grows wider, 'Our temple is a rather large place, and you wouldn't want to end up lost and alone, now would you? There are a few other Nitore [leaders] you should speak with. They may have some tasks for you. In exchange for your help, they should offer some history on our magnificent temple.''

You say, 'I'll speak with the leaders'

Chancellor Corcelia smiles warmly as al jots something down, 'Lest you forget, I've noted in your journal the names of those you should speak with.'

You have been assigned the task 'An Initiate's Task'.

Chancellor Corcelia has asked you to seek out a few key people within the temple who may have tasks for you to complete in exchange for history surrounding the temple.

Seek out Blademaster Morje 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)

Blademaster Morje spawns in the large circular room (ground level) northeast of the Cancellor (location approximately 1900, -310, -16).

You say, 'Hail, Blademaster Morje'

Blademaster Morje peers at you suspiciously, 'Another initiate I see. It seems Corcelia's greed has caused her to let just about anyone into the temple now, but never mind that. As long as you're able to kill swinetor, you won't hear me complain. The filthy creatures that burrow beneath this temple are constantly stealing our weapon supplies. None of the Nitore seem to want to get their hands dirty, so I count on initiate's like yoyrself to recover the weapons.'

Recover stolen temple weapons from swinetor 0/4 (Resplendent Temple)

Task Window Says: The Swinetor burrowed below the temple have been stealing weapons from their neighbors above.

This step updates as you kill Swinetor in the "In Between" (the undergrounds caves of the zone -- accessed from a cave entrance on either side of the temple, or by letting yourself fall into the gorge that surrounds the temple).

There is no actual item. This updates upon random kills. Upon an update, you see the emote:

You retrieve a dirty weapon from the dead swinetor.

Seek out Sentry Loesk 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)

Sentry Loesk spawns in the top of the western tower. On your map, you'll see a large, circular room northwest of Chancellor Corcelia's location. To access the top level, you need to use the ramp/stairwell that's in the room to the north of that one. Go all the way up the spiral ramp to get to Sentry Loesk's level (1830, 215, 410).

You say, 'Hail, Sentry Loesk'

Sentry Loesk bows deeply in your presence. 'Have you come to pray at the [sentry stone]?'

You say, 'I'm here to pray at the sentry stone...'

Sentry Loesk takes alir time recalling the history surrounding the powerful relics, 'While many travel here in search of beauty, those that dwell in the temple know its true treasures are the sentry stones. On display in various areas throughout the temple, the stones offer cleansing to those who pray at their base, and wisdom to those who are pure enough to hear their [words].'

You say, 'Their words?'

Sentry Loesk smiles at your eagerness, 'Everyone wishes to hear the words of the sentry stones, but only the truly ascended will be spoken to. For now, it's best that you stay near and pray.'

Pray at the sentry stone 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)

Sit at the sentry stone nearby until you get an update.

Faint murmurs escape the sentry stone and fill the air with words of decay and beauty.

Your task 'An Initiate's Task' has been updated.

Seek out Surmo, the temple attendant 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)

Task Window Says: Find Surmo, the Halfling temple attendant who works in the grand hall.

Surmo is on the base level of the temple; just head due north of the zone-in to the circular room furthest north (2500, 25, -21).

You say, 'Hail, Surmo'

Surmo nearly trips over himself to greet you, 'Hello there, friend! My name's Surmo, originally from Rivervale and now a dutiful servant of the temple, charged with waste [disposal]. I came here on one of the first few airships, and I have to say, I've been having some awfully strange dreams since I arrived!'

You say, 'Disposal?'

Surmo shrugs his shoulders with indifference, 'As you know, the temple's surroundings are occasionally infested with filth, and sometimes that filth sneaks into the temple. It's my job to get rid of it and toss whatever junk is left down these [chutes].'

You say, 'What chutes?'

Surmo scratches his head with obvious confusion, 'I don't really know much about the chutes, except that's where I'm told to put the [waste]. I've also been told not to travel down below the chutes under any circumstances, which is fine by me. I'm a stickler for the rules!' The clumsy halfling puts on a proud smile.

You say, 'Waste?'

Surmo says 'I know, I know! This temple's so pretty, it's hard to imagine any kind of waste within its walls. I blame the pig-people down below. I'm sure they're responsible for the strange swirls of filth I've seen in the eastern sentry tower. They appear faster than I can dispose of them lately, but luckily Corcelia sent you to help me!''

Collect waste from soiled essences 0/4 (Resplendent Temple)

Task Window Says: Eradicate soiled essences from the temple and clean up their waste.

Soiled essences spawn in the top of the east tower (the opposite side tower from Sentry Loesk -- around 1800, -330, 406) and in the bottom at the dead sump. As with the swinetor, these are kill updates. There are no actual items involved.

These mobs don't summon and are snareable/rootable.

Return to Chancellor Corcelia 0/1 (Resplendent Temple)

You say, 'Hail, Chancellor Corcelia'

Chancellor Corcelia welcomes you back with a guarded smile. 'So you've completed your tasks, _____. I trust that you know your way around the temple quite well by now.'

Through a set of initiate tasks, you have met many key people within the Resplendent Temple.

The soiled essences are snarable, stunnable, and do not summon. I.E. they can be kited, but it is a VERY tight area.
