Pristine Ore Samples(Normal):
This quest starts in Steamfont at -1935, +1395, +105 with Metallurgist Mirakzin, a gnome who wanders from the entrance to Ak'Anon out around the kobold camps north of the druid rings.
You say 'Hail, Metallurgist Mirakzin'
Metallurgist Mirakzin says 'Quickly! I need your [help]!'
You say, 'What help?'
Metallurgist Mirakzin says 'I just received a sample of a new ore mined by the pirates of Broken Skull Rock. Unfortunately, it is not pure enough to conduct the needed experiments. I need several Pristine Ore Samples from within the mines. Are you willing to help me in return for a [favor]?'
You say, 'I will do you a favor.'
Metallurgist Mirakzin says 'Bah! Don't worry. You'll be rewarded well. Take this Sealed Sack and get three samples. Make sure to combine them. I wouldn't want the samples to oxidize like the last ones.'
At this point he hands you a 4-slot sack. You must go to the Torgiran Mines, obtain three Pristine Ore Samples, and combine them in this sack. The result is a Sealed Ore Sack that you return to Mirakzin.
Metallurgist Mirakzin says 'Hmm. It LOOKS like the samples survived. I will, however, have to test them. But you've done well I suppose. Here. Take this as payment.'
Returning the samples will get you the reward of a 5-charge Mana Shield potion, called Encased Mnemonic Vapor. There are no faction hits or experience associated with the quest.
Reward: Encased Mnemonic Vapor The Telescope(Normal):
At the observatory past the windmills in the Steamfonts a female gnome name Brona Frugrin is a telescope lens crafter and she believes that if you can get the retina of the beholder named Borxx, who may be found in either Runnyeye or Beholder at certain times, and return it to her, she can create a telescope unlike any other.
Borxx is a L30 Evil Eye-type monster. Bringing back his loot, the evil eye lens, will yield a 2h blunt weapon called the Staff of the Observers that has Attack 12, Attack Delay 39, +5 INT, +5 WIS, +30 Mana. It also casts the L8 Enchanter spell "Sentinel" which will warn you of approaching hostiles, which is very useful while meditating.
Need current dialogues, quest item droppers, /loc of quest-giver, faction hits if any.
Reward: Staff of the Observers
