Vira may be found behind two fire elementals on the balcony to the left, at +410, +85.

You say, 'Hail, Vira'

Vira says 'I am Vira, elementalist of Solusek Ro. I guard the secrets of the tools of [elemental summoning]. If you are a magician, you might be interested.'

You say, 'What is elemental summoning?'

Vira says 'I hold the secrets to the construction of four tools which assist magicians with the summoning of elementals. I know about the [broom of Trilon], the [shovel of Ponz], the [torch of Alna] and the [stein of Ulissa].'

You say, 'What of the torch of Alna?'

Vira says 'The torch of Alna was constructed and held by the fire mistress of the same name. Are you [interested] in the [torch]?'

You say, 'I am interested in the torch.'

Vira says 'I will make a replica of the torch of Alna for you, but I will need the following items to make it: a fire emerald, a scale from a fire drake, a torch from a magician in Najena and the toes of a fire giant. Bring me these four components, and I will build for you an object of elemental power.'

A Fire Emerald may be purchased from a jewelry merchant. A Fire Drake Scale drops from various fire drakes in the Lavastorm Mountains and Solusek's Eye (Sol A). A Torch (identifies as "Torch of Fire") drops from various mobs in Najena. Fire Giant Toes drop from various fire giants around the world. Hand in the four items.

Vira says 'All of the pieces of the famous Torch of Alna! I never thought you would find them all! As you have displayed courage, I grant you this torch.'

All of the items needed for these focus quests are found in Najena off of Magicians. ANY Magicians. I have verified this as of 07/10/2003. They were dropped off of Goblin Magicians more often than Dark elfs. All of these items also drop off of the Alligators in FEERROTT. Not any other zone where alligators are, Just the Feerrott. Also, these mobs will drop other items you are going to need for your Epic. The other items are all called Page of Elemental Mastery:Water, or Earth, or Fire or Wind. You might as well loot them while doing these quests rather than come back later for them.

What to do:
Talk to Vira (Gnome p415,p90) in Temple of Solusek Ro. She will give info on 4 items she needs for the each quest you are doing for each of the 4 Mage pet focus items.

Hints:
None of the items are no-drop, so the best thing to do is hit the vendors in the surrounding areas first or auction in the zone. Go to OOT and check vendors for toes, if none there try Everfrost, and then try Nejena (go to the floor where you get the 3rd key and kill those mages) then buy needed gem and go to back to Vira.

The main items broom, torch, stien & shovel drop from mobs called 'An Alligator' the Swamp Alligators do not drop them to my knowledge.
------------------------------------------------
Shovel of Ponz (increases size and power of Earth Elementals above level 34) requires:

A Shovel-from a Magician (9-24) in Najena or "An Alligator" (18-34) in Cazic Thule or Feerrott.
Eye of Gargoyle-Mistmoore (level 22-36) or Gargoyles in OOT (level 18-20).
Toes of a Hill Giant--from EK, NK, or WK, Rathe Mountains, WC (level 33-37), or Gornit in OOT.
A Ruby-from vendors.
------------------------------------------------
Torch of Alna (increases size and power of Fire Elementals above level 34) requires:

Fire Drake Scale-Fire drake (level 9-11) in Lavastorm Mountains.
Fire Giant Toes-Fire Giants are in SolB (level 47-51) or Gornit in OOT.
Torch-Magicians (level 9-24) in Najena and Alligators (level 18-34) in Feerrott.
Fire Emerald-from vendor.
------------------------------------------------
Broom of Trilon (increases size and power of a summoned Air Elementals above level 34) requires:

Griffen Feather-most any griffens near Karanas or vendors in Rathe, NK, and probably Jaggedpine.
Cyclops Toes-SeaFuries in OOT (level 39-42) and Cyclops in SK, RM, WK (level 28 - 42) or Gornit in OOT.
Broom-Magicians (level 9-24) in Najena and Alligators (level 18-34) in Feerrott.
Star Ruby-from vendor.
------------------------------------------------
Stien of Ulissa (increases size and power of a summoned Water Elementals above level 34) requires:

Mermaid scale-Sirens on the spires in OOT (Sirens at the spires the Boat passes when you go from FP to BB are excelent solo exp for level 16 - 20).
Ice Giant Toes-Ice Giants in Everfrost Peaks or from Gornit.
Stien-Magicians in Najena and Alligators in Feerrott, Magicians (level 9 -24) and Alligators (level 18-34).
Sapphire-from vendor.

I want to call attention back to a post I made waaaaay back when I first finished my set of Focus items. I have gone through it and altered it to fit the current changes in the game and I want to point out that if you are a 45+ Mage it is absolutely essential that you get the Torch (for the Rak'Ashiir raids in CoM), Broom (used to get Epic), and Shovel (used to get Epic).

-== Warning ==-
This is a total spoiler of the quest. If you dont like spoilers dont look.
-== Warning ==-

Note: Level ranges are approx from personal knowledge and from Illia's Bestiary.

Shovel of Ponz:

Gargoyle Eye - can be found in Mistmoore (level 22 - 36 depending on type) or in OOT (level 18 - 20) off the Gargoyles. I bought mine from a vender on sister island.

Hill Giant Toes: Hill giants the world over drop these... (level 33 - 37) Got mine from Gornit*

Shovel: Magicians in Najena and Alligators in Feerrott drop these. The Magicians are level 9 -24 and the Alligators are 18 - 34. *Note* the ones that drop the items are called 'An Alligator' the Swamp Alligators do not drop them to my knowledge.

Ruby: Bought mine from the vender in High Keep - any ruby will do

Torch of Alna:

Fire Drake Scale - got mine off Fire drake in Lavastorm Mountains. If I remember correctly they are a level 9 - 11 mob. Could probably buy them from the gypsies camped there.

Fire Giant Toes - Fire Giants are in SolB and are level 47 - 51. The are killed every time a Naggy raid happens however, so either auction at ZI or just get them from Gornit*

Torch - Magicians in Najena and Alligators in Feerrott drop these. The Magicians are level 9 -24 and the Alligators are 18 - 34. *Note* the ones that drop the items are called 'An Alligator' the Swamp Alligators do not drop them to my knowledge.

Fire Emerald - bought mine a merchant in North Freeport. Any Fire Emerald will do.

Broom of Trilon:

Griffen Feather - most griffens drop them. Bought mine in the commonlands but they will be more common on the venders in Rathe, NK, and probably Jaggedpine.

Cyclopse Toes - Any Cyclopse can drop them, SeaFuries in OOT (level 39 - 42) and Cyclopse in SK RM WK ect (level 28 - 42). Got mine from Gornit*

Broom - Magicians in Najena and Alligators in Feerrott drop these. The Magicians are level 9 -24 and the Alligators are 18 - 34. *Note* the ones that drop the items are called 'An Alligator' the Swamp Alligators do not drop them to my knowledge.

Star Ruby - Bought mine in North Freeport. Any Star Ruby will do

Stien of Ulissa:

Mermaid scale - Killed sirens on the spires in OOT to get these. Just a quick note, the Sirens at the spires the Boat passes when you go from EFP to BB are excelent solo exp for level 16 - 20 Mages. Can also buy them from Sister Island merchants.

Ice Giant Toes - Ice Giants in Everfrost Peaks drop them. They are very hard to kill. Get them from Gornit*.

Stien - Magicians in Najena and Alligators in Feerrott drop these. The Magicians are level 9 -24 and the Alligators are 18 - 34. *Note* the ones that drop the items are called 'An Alligator' the Swamp Alligators do not drop them to my knowledge.

Sapphire - Got mine in North Freeport in an auction... Any Sapphire will do.

When you goto the Temple of Solusek Ro you will need to talk to Vira, she is a short Gnome on the left side of the balcony in the main room. Hail her and follow the prompts till she tells you the four items she needs for the quest you are doing. Give her the four items all at once in the order she asks for them. YOU MUST BE AT LEAST INDIFFRENT TO HER. She will give you faction, Experience, and the item you were questing for. Good Luck !!!

* Gornit is a Giant on an island in OOT near Sister Island. Just go to sister island and do a shout asking if anyone is camping Gornit, if someone is, ask them if you can get one of each toe from them. Gornit is almost always camped and the people camping him will usually give you the toes for free.

How do I get my faction back up again? I went and hunted in Sol A and B and came back and Vira wont talk to me. I didnt know I would get bad faction. How do I get my faction back up so I can do my quests?

Hunting in Sol A and B won't lower your faction there. Chances are you hailed the efreeti in the hidden room of the temple which is a huge faction hit (yes, just for a 'Hail').
The two easiest ways to raise Temple faction is: a) kill shadowed men b) go to the graveyard in Mistmoore, get the flower off of the top of the casket in the mausoleum and give it to the renegade shadow man behind the mausolem. The flower will respawn in a few minutes, but that's no biggie if you can still get xp from the GY mobs ;)

According the the www.magecompdium.com site under the focus items section, all the the focus items will work from lvl 4 to 49. I have a 4 mage with all the items on him and it seems to make the pet bigger also. So it seems you can get the items as low as you can get the pet spells. Got my 49 druid to get all the items since they are not no drop.

Yes, the size and relative strength of my pets goes up... HOWEVER, I have noticed that while I use the focus my pets have a MUCH higher chance of conning green to me.

Sasarella, yes these WILL work before level 34. They do not affect pet level, they affect stats (HP, agi, dex, etc) The level 4, 8, and 16 spell levels can summon a yellow pet, reguardless whether you focus it or not!
Btw, this is my bro's sig here, I don't know how to log out :)

a lvl 6 qnd a lvl 5 doing this quest? Hellooo...? Were talking over 400 pp for stones and areas that are dangerous for an invisible 25 to go beg, much less hunt (except in groups). Granted i got 1 stein from the gators and 1 torch from the magicians but they were blue and green at 25. Can you say "majorly twinked"? Any mage whos just starting wouldnt have the capacity. I also cannot believe anyone is going to hand you one of these gems f.o.c. - PUHLEASE! Anyway i just got all the components after about 5 real days- good luck to all!!

# Jul 22 2001 at 4:28 PM Rating: Default
These items will NOT work until level 34. IF you are getting a yellow pet before them you are lucky. The only part that will work is the reclaim energy proc. You can find the Fire Emerald in Firiona Vie at the Gem merchant. You can also find it in Felwithe. I actually bought all of my gems off the same merchant in FV. Also bought all of my toes in FV. I spent about 700pp with this quest but all in all it is well worth it. Good luck to you all

Just a quick note... I just did this quest with my level 6 mage.. I am not sure if there is a level cap or if it is because I did not have a General slot open (or just a bug) but, I recieved xp and faction and she said she would give me the torch but I did not actually recieve it. I believe you must need an open General slot and because it is no drop it just poofed....Argh!

The Focus Items
# Apr 22 2001 at 10:41 PM Rating: Good
I have just finished doing all the focus Item quests. They are as follows:

Shovel of Ponz:

Gargoyle Eye - can be found in Mistmoore or in OOT. I bought mine from a vender on sister island.

Hill Giant Toes: Hill giants the world over drop these... Got mine from Gornit*

Shovel: Magicians in Najena and Alligators in Cazic drop these.

Ruby: Bought mine from the vender in High Keep - any ruby will do

Torch of Alna:

Fire Drake Scale - got mine off Fire drake in Lavastorm Mountains. Could probably buy them form the gypsies camped there.

Fire Giant Toes - Just get them from Gornit*

Torch - Magicians in Najena and Alligators in Cazic drop these.

Fire Emerald - bought mine a merchant in North Freeport. Any Fire Emerald will do.

Broom of Trilon:

Griffen Feather - most griffens drop them. Bought mine in the commonlands.

Cyclopse Toes - Got mine from Gornit*

Broom - Magicians in Najena and Alligators in Cazic drop them

Star Ruby - Bought mine in North Freeport. Any Star Ruby will do

Stien of Ulissa:

Mermaid scale - Killed sirens on the spires in OOT to get these. Can also buy them from Sister Island merchants.

Frost Giant Toes - Even though Vira says you need Frost giant toes you ACTUALLY need Ice Giant toes. Get them from Gornit*.

Stien - Megicians in Najena and Alligators in Cazic drop them.

Sapphire - Got mine in North Freeport in an auction... Any Sapphire will do.

When you goto the Temple of Solusek Ro you will need to talk to Vira, she is a short Gnome on the left side of the balcony in the main room. Hail her and follow the prompts till she tells you the four items she needs for the quest you are doing. Give her the four items all at once in the order she asks for them.

RE: Minimun Level
# May 10 2001 at 10:36 PM Rating: Default
I did all of these quests at Lvl 23. It is not hard to do if you try. I bought the gems and got people to let me loot the rest, most of them are concitered trash items, as for the torch, broom, shovel, and stein from Najena, just wait till a high lvl mage is in there trying to get his Epic and ask him if you can have them. They will almost always say yes
RE: Minimun Level
# May 17 2001 at 5:18 AM Rating: Default
Its not a matter of questing, a lvl 1 can do this quest, none of the components are no drop, allowing you to buy them or whatever. The 34 means the lvl these items dont take effect till. Focus doesnt work till 34 but you can quest them anytime. My lvl 5 mage had all the focus.
getting toes

getting most of the items but the broom is easy. getting the toes isn't. but i found where you might find all the toes needed for the focous item quest, its in the oot at the High elf that sells the lv 16-20 mage spells. Hope this helps.

FIRE emerald?
# Jan 16 2001 at 7:13 PM Rating: Default
Is anyone positive this needs to be a FIRE emerald and not a regular emerald for the torch of alna. I have looked every where for a fire emerald and can not find one. only regular emeralds. I know all the venders that sell gem from internet sites. The only place i have not checked is Erudin. please help on exact locations if you know.

RE: FIRE emerald?
# Apr 29 2001 at 3:13 AM Rating: Default
Cant buy fire emerald at gem merchant in Felwithe, but can buy it from the jewelry merchant. Not sure if this is who sells the fire emerald everywhere, or just in Felwithe. Jewelery merchant is located near fisherman building on the way to south Felwithe prior to zoning.
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 02 2001 at 10:07 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i have 75 cha and i'm indifferent to the vendor upstairs in the blue building in north freeport, she sold me an emerald for 96pp.

Found them. They are in every basic place that sells good gems. N Freeport and Qeynos Palace for sure. They look like summoned wisp stones however. The time i have waisted thinking they look like normal gems. In FP where i'm seen indif it cost about 98pp
Things I learned...
# Dec 20 2000 at 1:05 AM Rating: Default
I did this quest several times before I got it right, and I wanted to post some ways to avoid the mistakes I made.
First DON"T HAIL THE EFREETI! By simply hailing the efreeti in in the temple, you will damage your faction, and your faction must be at least indifferent to succeed.
Second, give all the items to Vira at once. I read not to do this before trying the second time, and for seom reason after giving here the fourth item... nothing happened.
Now a few things I did just to be safe ( I wasn't about to take chances the third go round). I indentified all the items (broom, stein, shovel, torch) before giving them to Vira. I hailed Vira, and talked to her about the quest each time too (I did all 4 focus items at the same time). I didn't just hand her the items. I also made sure to hand the items to her in the same order in which she asked for them.

Good Luck All... Praise Innoruk!!
Aaluuin... Quellious
Focus Items and Pets
# Dec 07 2000 at 10:39 PM Rating: Default
I am a 28 mage. I got my focus items and did not notice any size difference in my pets. Nor were they more aggressive. However, every pet I summoned was blue to me when I had my focus item and green when I didnt.
Conclusion: The focus items affect even lvl 26 mage pets.
RE: Focus Items and Pets
# Jul 06 2001 at 5:43 PM Rating: Default
it affects all pets, i'm lvl 4 and bought the torch of alna, my pets are now yellow to me instead of being even or lower than me
