Oracle of K`Arnon  

Quest NPC

Uploaded April 26th, 2020 by Drewinette

This fellow is the source of those hideous looking baby blue robes that so many casters insist on wearing for the stats on it. He is guarded by the Guardian, a level 40 paladin. While he is not particularily difficult, he spawns very very slowly (at about 6 hour intervals).

He is also the bearer of the (unfinished) Quest for the Tome of Ages.

  • This mob spawns at -20, -6731, -200 up a hill on the southeast island.
  • Respawn Timer: 2 hours

You say, 'Hail, Oracle of K`Arnon'

Oracle of K`Arnon says 'Greetings, _____, I am the Oracle of K'Arnon. Do you quest for [knowledge] yourself, or do you offer that which I [seek]?

You say, 'What knowledge?'

Oracle of K`Arnon says 'I have lived long and have insight into many matters, yet I despise charity. To learn from me, you must first bring me that which I [seek].

You say, 'What do you seek?'

Oracle of K`Arnon says 'I seek knowledge, which is superior to all things. And no knowledge is greater than that which is contained within the [Tome of Ages].

Besides his robe drop, the Oracle had upon him a Raw Fine Runic Hide.

The Oracle is now located on the island just east of the undead/gargoyle island, nearish to the center of it near the top of a hill. More accurately, if you go to the center and look around at the hills, you'll see him and his buddies.

His location is -18, -6734.

Good luck. :)

I just hailed the Oracle at level 52, Froglok Paladin with indifferent faction. He talked to me, I went through the key words he gave me and he responded. He said nothing about Book of Scale, but I asked him about it anyway. He said he'd give me an artifact of his if I brought it to him. So, I tried turn-in. He gave the phylactery right away. So, being indiff faction works :)

just killed him for my rogues epic

Your faction with Oracle of Karnon got worse
Your faction with Oracle of Marud got better
# Jun 06 2005 at 1:20 AM Rating: Decent
To clear up any confusion, you need to have indifferent or better faction with the oracle to turnin the Book of Scale to get Miragul's Phylactery.

Raise Factop?

If you have a chanter charm him, hail him first. He was indifferent to me after the charm and when charmed, he was giving me the quest text. I gave him the book and got the phalactory (sp) back. Best way to do this. Illusions dont work.

Dark Elf necro, KoS by default?

Never killed the guy, don't plan on it. I have read the quests to bump up faction, but I am not sure how much it will take to get me high enough.

Any insight?
Don't Kill Him
# Feb 08 2004 at 2:31 AM Rating: Decent
I can't believe anyone kills him anymore for the robe since there are so many better ones! Leave him up for the Paladins and the people doing the Robe or Tunic of the Grand Oracle FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!!

Don't forget rogues. Robe of the Oracle is part of the Ragebringer quest too.

eh.. This robe looks pretty good now with the newer graphics.. well on a high elf female with blueish hair it does anyway...
Raising faction with the Oracle of K'Arnon
# Apr 07 2003 at 5:47 AM Rating: Decent
Anybody know how to raise faction with this dood, I have read stories about doing the Red Wine Quest, and the Book or Turmoil quest, both in Neriak, I this true?
I also head that if you kill Lokar To'Biath (Library 3rd gate, Neriak) may also raise faction too, is this true?

if you know how to do this can you email me at

I'm wondering the same thing as the other pally here about raising faction with the oracle. I'm in the process of doing my epic and need him for a turn in. Site says I should be indiff. to him unless i've killed him several times. I'm not KoS to him but not indiff. either, therefore worried about weather or not I should risk turn in or try to raise faction first back up to indiff. I'm at a loss, can't find any info on how to raise faction with this guy. Any info. anyone has would be greatly appreaciated.

Thank You,

You defnitly need more faction than Indiff. Tried a hand in with Dubiously and he took the book glady but returned nothing. Well, now I have to do that Scale part all over again but at least we know that part for sure now. Better raise your faction mate :)
funny stuff

On Feb 25th was not able to harmony the Guardian of the Oracle. I received the message "Your target looks unaffected". This is the first time harmony did not work on this guy. 57 druid, scratching head when they nerfed him lol
Not so ugly if...

The robe really is better looking on Luclin models than what the Pre-Luclin look is. Still, I plan on making mine a different color a soon as LoY goes live =).
oracle of Marud
# Nov 25 2002 at 11:53 PM Rating: Default
I don't care what he is for or how much the robe is worth. I kill him all the time and have 5 robes on 5 separate characters. As soon as my mule sells one in the bazaar I cycle the robes and go get another one so I always have 5. They sell FAST at 300 a pop. Ugly as they are they are now more effective with the damage enhancing effect. Better than Blackened Crystalline or Advisor's Robe.
Anyhow, who the heck is this Oracle of Marud? there is no listing in Illia's Bestiary under faction or by zone.
KK this guy IS for a quest
# Nov 23 2002 at 9:54 PM Rating: Excellent
This NPC is indeed for a quest, the Paladin epic to be exact. So before you kill him for that ugly robe, remember you may be causing some poor pally to sit there for 6 hours just to do a turn in. :(

Rogues need the robes for their 1.0 epic! He is for a quest, but in the rogue version there is no turn in.
# Sep 19 2002 at 10:12 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, I'm a chante and I've been easily soloing him since 45th. Buff up MR, shielding all that good stuff. Charm the guardian, since he seems to be higher than the wiz. Wizzy gets pummeled, either I absorb his nukes (which are resisted) and he gets to be OOM (all the while I'm draining him with Mana Sieve) or the pally takes a beating. Anyway, Oracle dies, I snag his robes, he whines about Dark Bargainers or something, and that's that. Now the pally to deal with... depending on how bad the wizzy hurt him I either kill him with a couple of nukes or I just mem blur him or gate. Easy as pie...

He is located at -500, -8850
# Aug 15 2007 at 5:41 PM Rating: Decent
Must have changed the zone from the time this post was made. Nothing at -500, -8850 but open ocean. I'll post the current location as soon as I can find him.
Spawn time ?
# Jul 02 2002 at 3:01 AM Rating: Default

I want one of these robes for my Wiz.. Took the cleric there and started waiting.

I read somewhere that the spawn on this guy is 6 hours. Well, he wasn't there between 18:00 and midnight last night, and he was'nt there this morning either so, anyone got any ideas ?

Is it worth staying here another day or shall I wait for a patch.
