NOTE: A patch on March 25, 2015, added a work-around to obtain items from Cazic Thule, Dread, Fright, and Terror:

- In the Plane of Fear, a harbinger of Fear can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Cazic-Thule or the golems. These pieces cannot be multi-quested or traded. In addition, a harbinger of Fear can advance the Whistling Fists quest in the same way as Cazic-Thule. A harbinger of Fear will not be available on progression servers until they have opened up the TDS expansion? (need confirmation on this)

Furthermore, a patch on April 22, 2015, added a work-around to obtain bottleneck items from Phinigel Autropos (Kedge Keep), Gorenaire (Dreadlands), and Talendor (Skyfire Mountains). (not on progression servers)

Full Walkthrough

Head to the the Temple of Solusek Ro and talk to a human wizard named Solomen. He is located on the left side of the temple between the two undead knights (one room from Lord Searfire at +425, +80, +29).
You say, 'Hail, Solomen'

Solomen says 'Ah, I see you have found my study. This is where I study and scribe the history of magic in Norrath.'

You say, 'What history?'

Solomen says 'I have worked to chronicle everything from the beginnings of magic to what we consider the modern day of magic. Solusek Ro has been very generous to those who wield magic in Norrath. But throughout history there is one thing I have noticed - too much power corrupts the soul. I have seen and documented that the strongest wizards and those closest to Solusek Ro become corrupted by their power.'

You say, 'What Wizards?'

Solomen says 'Unfortunately, I don't have time to speak of such things right now. But I could use your help since you are here. I have here an envelope that I need delivered to one Camin Rah. You can find Camin in the wizard tower in the city of Erudin. He is a sage like myself whose knowledge rivals my own. Do you [agree] to undertake my task?'

You say, 'I agree.'

Solomen says 'Here you are, then. Good luck on your journey.'

  • You receive a Note to Camin.

  • The note identifies as "I've found what we've been searching for!")

    You must hand this note to Camin, the next NPC involved in the epic. It reads:

    "Hello, old friend, I have made an updated list and locations of the items required for my research. Dragon bones- Plane of Fear Jet Black egg- Unknown Mistletoe powder- Old Sebilis Rune of Lost Thought- Unknown Contact me when you find them Solomen"



    Now head to the City of Erudin and find Camin. He can be found inside the Vasty Deep Inn on the 2nd floor. To find him, simply open the front door and go up the stairs to your right. Go down the hall and open the first door on your left. Camin will be behind the door at -1166, -11, 84. He is on Truespirit faction (similar to Beta Neutral - no faction for killing him and starts non-KOS to all).

  • Hand him the note that Solomen gave to you to get this response:

  • Camin says 'So you have met Solomen, eh? He is a man with a wealth of knowledge. It is good to hear he is well.'

    You say, 'Hail, Camin'

    Camin says 'Go away! I have no time for you!'

    You say, 'What are you searching for?'

    Camin says 'Ah! A smart one, I see! If you really wish to know about such a thing, you will have to help me finance my studies. The knowledge I have acquired and researched did not come cheaply.'

    You will need to give Camin 1000pp at this point.
    Camin says 'Good, good, you show a willingness to learn of this with your offer. What I can tell you is that Solusek Ro had four followers who had shown exceptional aptitude in the arts of wizardry. Solusek Ro himself tutored them. He considered them to be like his own children. I know of one who still exists. He goes by the name of Arantir Karondor. He used to specialize in the storing of magic into physical objects. Arantir has been hiding for many, many years and will most assuredly be going by another name, so keep your eyes open. Anyway, be off, I need to continue my research. Return to me if you ever find Arantir Karondor.'

    Your faction standing with Truespirit has been adjusted by 10.
    You gain experience!



    Now you must head to Halas. Once there, head toward the shaman guild and find a vendor named Dargon (location 350, 357) that sells a potion called Ro's Breath (identifies as "Powerful magic radiates from this object."). Buy this potion for around 1000pp and make your way back to Erudin.

  • Hand Ro's Breath over to Camin and get this response:


  • Camin says 'Very interesting... I've seen this work before. Yes, yes! It's the work of Arantir Karondor! Give this back to the person you got it from. Maybe he will have a clue to Arantir's location.'

    Your faction standing with Truespirit has been adjusted by 10.
    You gain experience!

  • Camin gives you back the potion.


  • It now identifies as "I know who you are."). The only difference is that it no longer has a charge of Shield of Lava. You must now take this potion back to Dargon in Halas. Once it's handed in, she will turn into Arantir Karondor and reply with:
    Dargon says 'So, I've been discovered! You must know Camin - he is one of the only people who could have recognized my work. I have worked very hard to mask my presence here.'

    You say, 'Hail, Arantir Karondor'

    Arantir Karondor says 'Before I tell you anything, I require you to help me. Seek a woman named Challice. Give her this ring and then return to me.'

  • You receive Arantir's Ring (identifies as "My love has no bounds").




  • You now need to seek Challice out inside the Felwithe Paladin guild at location -13, -263.

  • Give her the ring.

  • Challice says 'Oh yes? Arantir? What a fool he was! The man gave me everything, but for all his intelligence, he could never understand why I was truly with him. It was for his power; he could do anything. But when he mysteriously lost it, he became just another toy. I never loved him. Return this ring to him. He will understand that I have no desire to see him again.'

    Your faction standing with Truespirit has been adjusted by 10.
    You gain experience!

  • You get a different version of the ring back (identifies as "I never could love a man like you.").



  • Now you must head back to Halas.

  • You can hand the ring to either version of Arantir. Handing it into Dargon will spawn the real version.

  • Arantir Karondor says 'Ah, but it pains my heart to see this. How I could love a woman like that is beyond me. And yet, I still do love her. It was on the day I was to ask her to marry me that I lost my powers. When I was about to cast my greatest spell to prove my love to her, my magic failed. She ran out on me that day. But enough of me, do you wish to hear my story?'

    You say, 'I wish to hear your story.'

    Arantir Karondor says 'I once was one of four true followers of Solusek Ro. So great were the four of us that Solusek Ro himself made us each a special item. We did not know what the others' items were, but we realized that was for our own safety. Each one of us, after receiving the item, began to plot against Solusek Ro. Each of us believed we had enough power to dominate Norrath. Solusek Ro saw this and at the time we needed our powers most, he stripped us of them. Now I know two of the other wizards by name. One was called Sylen Tyrn, the other's name was Demunir Scry. The last wizard was a gnome, but I can't think of his name.'

    You say, 'What about Sylen Tyrn?'

    Arantir Karondor says 'Sylen was a high elf wizard, and like many high elves, he believed himself to be better than others. Because of his birth, he thought he was more noble and more intelligent than anyone else. I heard how met his demise - while flying over a vast area of water, his powers were stripped from him in midflight. He fell and was captured by a rival wizard who specialized in magics of the water. Search for that wizard and you could find a trace of Sylen.'

    The "trace of Sylen" he speaks of can be found on Phinigel Autropos in Kedge Keep, just make sure you keep going on with the rest of the dialog below before you go there. A Blue Crystal Staff is what you need. It's one of Phinigel's rare drops so you're in for a "fun" camp. He can be taken out easily by two or three organized groups. He has a number of magic immune guardians surrounding him so you may want a monk to do the pulling.
    You say, 'What about Demunir Scry?'

    Arantir Karondor says 'Demunir was a human in a rush for power. He was extremely intelligent and resourceful but, unfortunately, was more interested in destructive magic. Hearing of an ancient land, he immediately traveled to it, believing there to be powerful relics left undiscovered there. While exploring, he came upon a dwelling that housed a powerful warrior. Believing himself to be more powerful, he attempted to take this dwelling for himself. While in battle with this warrior, Solusek Ro stole his powers and left him helpless. It is said that Demunir's item is the warrior's most prized trophy.'

    After you go through the rest of the below dialog and get the note, you're in for another not-so-enjoyable camp. The item you need now is the Gnarled Staff which can be found on Venril Sathir in Karnor's Castle (/loc?). It's his uncommon drop.

    Although only 55th level, Venril will take three or four groups to put down. He procs a 1500 point lifetap so your raid will need to manage aggro very carefully.
    You say, 'Who is the gnome?'

    Arantir Karondor says 'Ah, the gnome I know very little about. I know he was small and crafty, and that he had a brother. His brother's craft was that of making fireworks, and he was the unfortunate victim of one of his own experiments. His firework exploded, leaving his mind diminished in capacity, even for a gnome. I remember others calling him 'Old Stewpot' in jest. I do not know if this is his birth name, but it may help you to locate him. I hear he also stays close to water because of the explosion. You never know when another gnomish invention will go awry. Give him this letter to help motivate him to remember.'

  • You receive a Note from Arantir (identifies as "What is lost must be found").


  • It reads:

    "Greetings Sir Gnome, I hope this letter reaches you in good health."



    The gnome Arantir is referring to is Kandin Firepot. He has a 2.5-3 day respawn timer and is found at about -1490, 2845 (in a gnome vendor camp along the coastline far south of the dock area). When you give Kandin the Note from Arantir he will say:

    Kandin Firepot says 'Brother! I have one of those. He's great, but he's dead. His name was Gabstik and he was a really powerful wizard. I still have one of his greatest possessions! You look like you could use it. I've added another item to my shopping list. I require a dry brittle skin that I can mold or a rare oil found in the planes that I must soak the fuse in. Get me one of these things and I'll trade it for my brother's stick.'

    Your faction standing with Truespirit has been adjusted by 10.

    You say, 'Hail, Kandin Firepot'
    Kandin Firepot says 'Hello, there! Don't have time to talk. I'm workin', workin', workin'! Careful! Don't slip in the oil!

    You say, 'What oil?'

    Kandin Firepot says 'Ah the oil! I recently sent a specially crafted golem to explore through a huge portal to another plane. Its instructions were to collect special oil that I suspect existed in the plane. What I think is the golem broke down. This looks like a good task for one like you. Go see what's wrong with the golem. Here are spare gears of mine in case it's broken. Be careful though, if you put it in wrong it could explode, or worse!'

  • You receive a Golem Sprocket.




  • Head to the Plane of Fear with a raid intact. Hand the sprocket to a broken golem. You now have a 65th level Enraged Golem to deal with. This will be a LONG fight, as he has well over 150k hps.
    An enraged golem says 'Error! Malfunction! Destroy!
    An enraged golem says 'Wizards like you always bring out the worst in me.'

  • Once he is dead, loot Green Oil.




  • Head back to Butcherblock and hand in the Green Oil to Kandin in Butcherblock.

  • Kandin Firepot says 'Oh wow! You found the oil! Where is the golem? You didn't hurt him did you? I am very fond of him. Anyways, here is your reward a note and staff to give to that guy you were asking me about.'

    Your faction standing with Truespirit has been adjusted by 30.
    You gain experience!

  • You receive a Staff of Gabstik and a Note to Arantir (identifies as "Give him a fish!"), which reads:


  • "The fish thank you for the people you sent me! Oh also if you ever come across my lantern please let me know."



  • Now take the note from Kandin and give it to Dargon in Halas. Arantir will once again appear in her place.

  • You say, 'Hail, Arantir Karondor'
    Arantir Karondor says 'Ah yes, you again. Do you have the items? Give me the three you possess and I'll combine them with my own.

  • At this point, hand Arantir the Blue Crystal Staff, the Gnarled Staff, and the Staff of Gabstik.

  • Arantir Karondor says 'Here, this pack contains all of our items. You will never be able to open it again, so you must deliver the pack, intact, to Solomen. He will then reward you. Now that I have helped you, leave me in peace.'

    Your faction standing with Truespirit has been adjusted by 30.
    You gain experience!

  • You receive a Magically Sealed Bag (identifies as "Godlike magic radiates from this bag").




  • Now you must go back to Solomen in Temple of Solusek Ro and hand him the bag.

  • Solomen says 'You actually did it! I never would have thought that anyone could have truly followed this path. This is a tribute to your intelligence and patience. Here, take this staff and know that you have made Solusek Ro and all the wizards of the world proud this day.'

    Your faction standing with Truespirit has been adjusted by -100.

    The final faction hit is in fact negative.

  • You receive The Staff of the Four.

    Wizard epic 1.0 possible changes, broken spawns

    I've been working on the 1.0 epic on Test and there are a couple speed bumps I've run into during the quest. For one, Kandin Firepot did not spawn after 72 hours. I petitioned and a few hours after submitting the petition he spawned. This was around 4 and a half days since server had come up.

    Also, a harbringer of fear will not assist the Wizard when trying to summon a broken golem or an enraged golem. It will return the standard message when hailed. I think a broken golem spawn is broken to be honest. He is supposed to be on a 24-72 hour spawn time and I've been watching Fear for quite a while and have not seen him. On a side note, a harbringer of the seas WILL spawn Phinny for the staff.

    The harbinger not spawning golem is a known bug since broken golem isn't a instant spawn on zone up like other mobs are, however I'm not sure a ticket has been created about it on dgcissuetracker.com.

    I have a wizard on Phinigel and got his epic the old fashion way of camping the broken golem a few weeks ago. His spawn is anywhere from 24 to 72 hours.

    The Test Server seems to be low population these days, and I've seen CT and the golems up for a while. Yet, a broken golem does not spawn. I've had a ranger parked at the port in and I have not seen him at all. Not sure if the spawn is just broken on Test, or on some servers and not all. The Test Server is going down in a minute and as soon as it comes back up, I'll start a 72 hour timer. Will report back if he shows up between now and then.

    Unforunately, I was distracted by the newly launched Quarm server to follow up on a broken golem until today. I logged in my ranger, hit track, and with track set to normal, a broken golem was either 1st or 2nd on the list. So I can confirm, it still spawns. I'm wondering if the spawn time has been increased from 3 days to 5. Not sure, although I am proud to say I am now a proud owner of the Wizard Epic 1.0.

    I hope this helps any other Wizards looking to complete their 1.0.

    Some thoughts on the harbinger of fear workaround:
    I've had the same issue that others have had.
    1) I tried to form a raid in PoFear. Didn't work.
    2) Tried hailing Solomen, Camin and Arantir Karondor. Didn't work.
    3) Tried asking Kandin Firepot 'What skin?' and, 'What dry brittle skin?' Didn't work.
    My conclusion is that this workaround may be broken. This makes me sad.

    Ultimately I ended up waiting for the broken golem to spawn.

Get me one of these things and I'll trade it for my brother's stick.'

    Some thoughts on the harbinger of fear workaround:
    I've had the same issue that others have had.
    1) I tried to form a raid in PoFear. Didn't work.
    2) Tried hailing Solomen, Camin and Arantir Karondor. Didn't work.
    3) Tried asking Kandin Firepot 'What skin?' and, 'What dry brittle skin?' Didn't work.
    My conclusion is that this workaround may be broken. This makes me sad.

    Ultimately I ended up waiting for the broken golem to spawn.

    Quote:
    Kandin Firepot says 'Oh wow! You found the oil! Where is the golem? You didn't hurt him did you? I am very fond of him. Anyways, here is your reward a note and staff to give to that guy you were asking me about.'

    And later upon turning in the Blue Crystal Staff, the Gnarled Staff, and the Staff of Gabstik
    Quote:
    Arantir Karondor says 'Here, this pack contains all of our items. You will never be able to open it again, so you must deliver the pack, intact, to Solomen. He will then reward you. Now that I have helped you, leave me in peace.'


    Your faction standing with Truespirit has been adjusted by 30.
    You gain experience!

    And later:
    Quote:
    Solomen says 'You actually did it! I never would have thought that anyone could have truly followed this path. This is a tribute to your intelligence and patience. Here, take this staff and know that you have made Solusek Ro and all the wizards of the world proud this day.'


    Your faction standing with Truespirit has been adjusted by -100.

    Camin in Erudin is in the Vasty Deep Inn. When you zone in from Toxx and take the teleport to the main part of the city, it's the stairs up to the first building on the left. Inside you hang a right and go upstairs, follow the corridor around and he's in the first door on the left at loc -1166, -11, 84.
    Note: You can buy Ro's Breath in Halas before heading here, it's 892p4g9s9c with max cha.

    Ok, so VSR is on a 24 + or - an 1hr respawn timer. and VS is on a 5 day + or - 12hr respawn timer. if it's time for VS to spawn and VSR is up, VSR will despawn and VS will take his place.

    As part of the druid and ranger 1.0 you can spawn a version of VS from VSR by handing him a summon globe of the firefly (no-drop,lv 1 druid ranger spell, or get a Split Paw from S.Karana) then he spawns a Spirit of Venril Sathir which you give a level 47 cleric resurrection spell scroll (buy from PoK for like 31plat). This will cause a version of VS to spawn. but so far all I've gotten this version of VS to drop is the pulsing green stones for the druid and ranger 1.0.

    My Question is this: has anyone gotten the Gnarled Staff for the wiz 1.0 to drop of the spawned version of VS?

    The staff only drops from the real VS not the spawned one.

    It only drops off the real VS, not the spawned version. I've only seen the spawned version drop the Ranger and Druid items.

    I just got the wizard epic on my heroic wizard alt. I MQ'd the Phinny piece with a magician and the VS piece with a shaman. The invis while turning in items trick appears to be have been nerfed, and I had to raise Truespirit faction on my magician in order to do the turn in. This was easy enough to fix with the first step of the shaman epic. Regarding that, note that while a charmed lesser spirit still gives out the gem, turning in the gem to a charmed Bondl gives NO faction increase. However, shrouding to a goblin, sneaking and getting the gem from the lesser spirit, then sneaking and turning the gem into Bondl does raise Truespirit faction. I got to amiable Truespirit faction just to make sure, but I think indifferent Truespirit faction would suffice.

    Unfortunately, the Gnarled Staff, Blue Crystal Staff, and the Staff of Gabstik must be turned into the version of Arantir spawned by handing in the note from Kandin. The version spawned by turning in either the Ro's Breath or the ring did not accept the items. After learning this, I had to spawn a second enraged golem in fear to acquire another Note from Kandin.

    shrouds are on shroudkeeper in pok. I did two gem turn ins to be sure (each turn in gives 100 faction) also note, you want to be sneaking as a goblin, don't hail, and be behind the lesser spirit and say "i wish to know more" to get the gem

    Oh well, I ended up buying the Ro's Breath and re-doing the quest from there again, and by the time I got to Kandin my faction was high enough to continue without handing him the letter XD hah hah, oh well, I have my epic now :D

    Looks like I may have screwed up. I didn't get the letter to Kandin at first so Kandin tells me to ***** off when I try to continue the quest and Dargon doesn't respond to anything. Is there a way to transform Dargon back into Arantir so I can get the letter?

    Did this recently on a box toon. My wizard is a dark elf and I did not have to do any fancy faction work to get the npcs to respond or update. All the turn ins worked with my starting faction. I can't remember what choices there were/are for deity but my wizard worships Solusek Ro.

    Also for the Halas part you can do all the turn ins and hails by standing behind the tree by the npc. Just use 3rd person cam or whatever. Whole thing was very straightforward other than finding Venril Sathir up, and getting Phinny to drop the staff.

    Ok, to save you 2k plat and to have to fight only one monster, just go straight to the gnome in Butcherbolck and say "what oil". You get the cog, head to PoF with a group, kill the golem and finish handing things in from there.

    # Aug 21 2014 at 8:32 AM Rating: Default
    Your method only works if you're MQing the whole thing. You would still have to get your hands on the Blue staff and the Gnarled staff. So unless you have someone else who already has those items, it won't work. Nice idea, but SOMEONE still has to fight Venril and Phinny for the Staffs they drop. It may not be you, but it will be someone.

    Hehe-- i can see that you never edited this epic walk-through. The location in Butcherblock is not a docks-- it is by the water at the gnome camp. Can you please correct this so the next fool who follows your directions won't run to the docks looking for an non-existant gnome there? Unfortunately he isn't up anywhere in the zone at this time.

    If you are talking about Kandin Firepot, the walk-through clearly gives his location in both plain text and /loc. He's difficult to find up. Good luck with your quest!

    It may clearly give his location, but it does NOT list the zone. The write-up definitely needs to be corrected. Unless you read the posts down below the write up, you have no idea what zone they are talking about. Just that it's near water, south of a dock, and the coordinates. The only possible clue you get is the list of zones that are included in the quest. So, for anyone else who would like to know, the zone is Butcherblock.

    1. get into a rogue shroud and say "what oil" to Kandin Firepot while sneaking.unshroud, go to fear and hand the sproket to broken golem

    2. loot oil from golem, go back to Kandin and open trade window with oil. use invis pot or perfected invis AA (AAs can be cast with trade window open). click trade. receive staff of gabstik and a note.

    3. get the gnarled staff from VS and the blue crystal staff from phinny, or someone who will multiquest either or both with you.

    4. go to halas and hand the note you got from kandin to Dargon at the alchemy merchants. Arantir spawns. open trade window with staff of gabstik, blue crystal staff, and gnarled staff. invis yourself and click trade. (if you are MQing, have your helper hand in their staves first before you hand in yours. make sure they are invis right before they hit trade or arantir will not accept their staff). receive magically sealed bag.

    5. go to temple of sol ro and put magically sealed bag in trade window with Solomen. invis again and hit trade. receive epic 1.0.


    that's ALL you need to do. skip everything else and do something more productive with the time you save.

    Epic 1.0 in less than 2 hours!! I am on progression server, Fippy. I did this epic today this a.m. following exactly these steps with no faction. I used the shroud as a rogue, and invisibility for each turn in and even squeezed in a MQ of phinny staff, just make sure you are quick with invis in Halas, they hates the Dark Elves. This was a ton faster than pre-quest, done by level 75 necro for a newb wizard. The main point is this was a cinch following these steps only!!

    I completed my Epic 1.0 today @1010 EST. This method works and saves TONS of time. It took forever to get the staff from Phinny, over 22 consecutive kills at a 11hr 15 min spawn time on the Seventh Hammer Server. I killed her at about 7AM EST BTW. Also, if you are KoS to the people in Halas it is a good idea to bring someone along to pull the NPCs that add off of you long enough to invis and do the turn in. At level 80, the adds are all grey and green but they still kept knocking off my invis so the turn in wasn't sucessful until I pulled out my merc.

    As of August 11 2010, MQ works.

    Got lucky with phiny and had the staff drop first kill, went to golem and killed fairly easily with myself (51 wizard)and an 85 Mag as well as an 85 Pally..

    As for VS -- He was down, he finally spawned as remains and so I found someone with the Gnarled Staff to MQ (he was a rogue).. He used Sneak, went behind and did the trade in.. i turned my 2 staffs in and got the satchel...

    Proud owner of the Wizard 1.0 Epic Staff now.
