Spawns in library room. Info in other posts is great on how to get there.

Respawn timer for PH is ~15-20minutes. Appears to change every time. PH's include tortured librarian, guardian ghosts, and skeletons. Took 14 PH's until Spectral popped. Turned into enraged librarian once I handed in the diamond while charmed.

Kaesora is a pain. And reading the in game maps of the zone doesn't help a whole lot, with its overlapping halls, pits, different levels and other confusing aspects. So, I will do the best I can to keep this explanation simple, yet thorough. You'll encounter a couple of pits that you'll need to drop down. These falls, however, are very short; you shouldn't need levitation.) You might wish to look at this EQ Atlas map to find the way.

When you enter Kaesora, you'll be facing south. Follow the hallway south (it will open to small room almost immediately from the entrance; just go through it and keep going south). You'll come to a pit. Drop down it, and continue south until you come to a room with most of the floor missing. Drop down to the space below. (This will be room number 7, on EQ Atlas, if you're looking at it.)

From this space, you'll see two tunnels leading out of it; one in the northwest corner and the other in the southeast. Take the southeast tunnel. The tunnel will then turn west. Keep following it -- it will bend south, then west again -- until it opens to another room. On the EQ map, you'll see a tunnel leading out it heading north. To get to this exit, take the ramp that begins on the west wall of this room that spirals upward. On the EQ Atlas, the room is drawn roughly as a circular hallway that spirals up.

Follow the tunnel north -- it will curve northeast, then north again -- and it will lead to a opening, a three way intersection. Take the EAST tunnel (not the north). The hallway will lead to another pit. Drop down. You'll see a door on the east wall. Open it and follow the tunnel that leads east. (Strangely, this tunnel doesn't show up on the in-game map, but does appear in EQ Atlas.) It will lead to a larger room with a door on the south wall (this room will be room 3 on EQ Atlas).

Take the door on the south, and immediately face east. It will appear to be a solid wall, but this is an illusion. Just go right through it. From there (on both the EQ Atlas and the in-game maps), You should easily see the path to the Library (room 5 on EQ Atlas). Just follow the path east and continue following as it turns north, then east, then south, southeast, southwest, then runs east again. Continue following the tunnel east until you come to the south end of a large opening. The library is a beige marbled-looking building with dark green marbled pillars it the middle. Just go inside and wait in the room with the book cases.

Another post I read said that the tortured librarian mobs will despawn after three minutes. I can confirm that this is true. The first tortured librarian disappeared after three minutes (I mezzed it when it aggroed rather than killing it) and was replaced by another tortured librarian, which also disappeared after three minutes, then was replaced by the spectral librarian. I charmed and gave it my dull diamond and got the enchanted diamond in its place.

So...to give the brief version of these directions.

You'll be facing south when you zone in. Go south, drop down the pit, go south. When you come to the room with most of the floor missing (Room 7 on EQ Atlas). Drop down to the space below, take the south east tunnel, follow it due west to a room with a spiral ramp leading to an exit on the north wall. Follow the tunnel, which goes due north. Take the first right (east) and drop down the pit. Take the door on the east wall to a larger room (Room 3 on EQ Atlas, and there should be spiders in it) and take the door on the south wall.

Turn east as soon as you take the exit, and go right through the wall (which is an illusion). The tunnel will turn north, east, southeast, south, southwest, then run directly east, which will end in a large opening, to the north. The library is the beige marbled building with the green marbled pillars. Go inside and you'll get your spectral librarian to spawn in the room with the bookcases.

When I arrived in the room, the Tortured Librarian was up. Killed him and got two more Tortured Librarians. Respawn time on each, one hour. Twenty minutes after the third Tortured Librarian died, the Spectral Librarian spawned. After I charmed him and did the turn in, he changed into "Enraged Spectral Librarian" and spawned four "a freed soul". Enraged Spectral Librarian dropped the Spectral Shroud.

I can confirm this. Today, I killed the Tortured Librarian when I got there, but when it spawned again, I left it as per this post and within minutes, it despawned and the Spectral Librarian spawned.

Got there and nothing was up. Killed room and Tortured Librarian spawned. Maybe 3 minutes later he poofed and spectral librarian spawned. Charmed and handed him the diamond. He poofs and enraged spectral librarian spawns. When you kill him about 5 freed souls spawn. Hope that helps a bit!

Ok after killing the PH 4 times and the does spawn every 20mins after the 4th kill on the PH a hour later he finally pops so that means after you kill the ph and he doesn't pop again in 20mins that means the Spectral is going to pop i sat there for 2 hours

I did this three days ago. I'm currently level 57 and did this no sweat.

When I went down there, it took me maybe 2 mins to get to the library. I brought my level 56 pet with me and was tearing through them even with an add beating on my pet. I just threw a rune on him and let him go to town.

I went into the library and turned the corner and who was looking me right in the face? None other than the see through nerd himself. I charmed him and he immediately got attacked by the floating thing with teeth which he ate through quickly.

I look in my inventory and I FORGOT THE STUPID DIAMOND. So I gate back to the PoK and get my gem and run back to Kaesora and head back down to the library and there he is. Charmed him, handed him the gem, he broke charm, i mezzed him, and gated out with my gem, leaving him up for anyone else who wants to do the hand in.

here is what I used to find the library. It's quite simple when you think about it.

Diku's Kaesora Explanation:
It is quite easy to get into the Library. Basically you enter Kaesora, cast invis, go straight forwards, drop down the hole with levitate, don't go all the way down, just head forwards onto the ledge in front that you can see. Face directly away from the door, enter the room with the 3 spiders and turn right and go thru that door. Directly behind the door there is a secret wall, go through that and then *just* before you hit the corner, cast invis undead. Follow the passage going down until you come to a large area with a building. Inside that building is the Spectral Librarian, or the Tortured Librarian. Not sure on which one is the place holder, as the Tortured Librarian dropped a Kunzar Cloak, so perhaps he is the rare and the spectral librarian is the place holder.

# Jan 05 2005 at 10:01 PM Rating: Decent
Well this is very easy, I am 70, down there killing things left and right no problem, wasnt having luck with spectral librarian spawning, but the tortured librarian did, so i figured well lets see what happens if i give the dull diamond to him, he eats lol. so now i have go get a new one... Right before this i did the scorpion in OT, its pretty easy too, hes lb at 70, but he aggroes from afar, but i charmed him and used him to kill the 4 guards, and the 5th wanderer, then gave him emerald, it was easy too.

Good luck enchanters

How to get there
# Mar 21 2004 at 7:07 PM Rating: Decent
Acutally, the easiest way to get to him is to cast illusion Air elemental for lev and then IVU and drop down the two holes, go straight and come up from the back courtyard.

What he means is...

Once in Kaesora, take the first left, with Levitation, drop down to the next floor. Directly ahead of you should be a door, open it. There is usually a spider inside that see invis. Kill at your leisure, then go drop down the next hole on the other side of the door. At the bottom of this whole there is 1 at most 2 undead, once killed, IVU and follow the map on around to the back of the Library.
Dont go down invis
# Jan 15 2004 at 5:07 PM Rating: Decent
Older posts mention using invis to get to undead then IVU past that to walk right down to the library. I would rec against it I went in invis and got jumped by the room of spiders. I thought at first that invis might have just dropped but on second trip in I used improved invis on Chanter an he was in the lead of the three. the spider in the second room (the one with the secret door) agroed on him and alerted the first two to his presence. So some of the spiders clearly see through. I'd just summon the pet and let him wade through them. They are easily pacified and Mr Ginsu can easily take them one on one using the animation you get in mid-50's.

Also if you ge bored and decide to kill the tome keeper between spawns. He runs fast at low hp. I assumed he was undead like the rest and let him get around the corner and lost Line-Of-Sight to root him. The train that resulted was why I got to come back in the second time. Hehe.

I have my diamond enchanted now and will be heading in again tonight to get the drop for HS key before saying goodbye to Kaseora.

Enchanter Epic info
# Oct 13 2003 at 9:04 AM Rating: Decent
For my fellow Enchanters looking to do this part of the quest, I hope to post some relevant info here for you. I used the directions from the following link to get myself to the library, with no problems:


Once I got to the library, I cast my pet and got haste on him. Then since the librarian was not up I cleared the room. I kept Rune 5 on myself and berserker spirit on my pet...I also threw in a few nukes...really wasn't a problem at all.

Then I sat around for awhile, still keeping my pet up. The librarian popped, I mezzed it, invised myself to get rid of my animation, charmed the librarian did the trade and gated out. The librarian did turn into an enraged but I was able to gate out with it beating on me no problem.

At lvl 62 these guys are just way to easy. I killed this guy in less than 30secs, after he died 3 a freed soul's didn't pop... it was 6 but they never landed a spell on me and all I had with me was my lvl 62 pet spell. Used my self rune and had 177 MR so they didn't do any damage to me. This guy is extremely easy at 62. But I thought it was 3 a freed soul's were supposed to pop but 6 did on me. I haven't read anything about 6 but still they never did any damage to me. Thought someone should know =).

Hope This Post Helps All Of You Fellow Enchanters Out There Smiley: grin

I've been trying to do enchanter epic mostly by myself as i have the time. I managed to do most of it and found this part to be reasonably easy to do. First invis yourself to undead and make it to the library. Find a safe spot where you can go and not get agro (on side of library between spons). From here, invis yourself to undead and walk into the library. Pacify the mobs one by one by targeting them, going out of range, cast, then invising and repeat. Luckily for me the librarian was up when I went there so once everything was pacified a charmed the librarian and handed the diamond over. I had no agros except for the enraged librarian that pops once you hand in. At this point I just gated.

If you are afraid he will beat you up after hand in, I suggest using a rune on yourself so you can gate out without too much of a chance of being interrupted.

PS: Also did this strategy with the Impaler Tzilug

Did this guy at level 58 with a 60 monk and a 54 cleric. Monk was kicking everythings *** so it was easy. Charmed this guy no problem did turn in. After turn in, corrupted librarian spawned in place of spectral librarian and proceeded to beat the tar outta me, but monk jumped in and whooped em for me (dropped tomb btw). Then 3 mobs spawned that had a nasty AoE and we all almost died. But we managed to survive ... just barely. Would suck for other people tho if ya just port out and leave these bad boys in there.

Sounds like a coincidence. Did he de-spawn, or do you mean that when he died, you got some room pops?
RE: enchanter epic
# Feb 02 2003 at 4:38 PM Rating: Decent
When the enraged librarian gets killed, 3 "Freed Souls" spawn, they have 1hp each, but have a nasty AE, my strategy would be just to leave the enraged there so he'll just despawn instead of having to deal with the Freed Souls.

You cannot get the gem required to turn into this friendly character (dull diamond) until you have completed the first part of the epic (notes for Stofo Olan) and you cannot do that part until 50. So no, you cannot charm him to do the quest at your level.

You CAN get the gems from Nadia without completing any other part of the epic, but you must be 50+ and non kos. You shouldn't need to cast Collaboration unless you have done something to really mess up True Spirit faction.

Correction: if you Collaborate Nadia, she will give you gems. I dont know about lesser faction spells.

You need Jeb's Seal before she can give you the gems, so no matter how high your faction is, she wont give them to you before lvl 50, which is when you can do the Notes quest that gets you Jeb's Seal so you can do the other parts. They dont want any old enchanter twink be running around with the epic ya know. ^_^
RE: Vinrea
# Aug 11 2003 at 9:40 AM Rating: Decent
I don't have Jeb's Seal with my chanter and I still got all of the gems. My chanter is 51 though so I think as long as you are over 50 you can get the gems.

I switched servers recently and started a new enchanter from scratch after having a lvl 65 Time enc on the old server. I am level 46 right now and have almost half of the epic done. No one will speak with me yet, including Nadia when I ask for bags. However I asked "What ruby" "What sapphire" "What diamond" and "waht emerald" and she gave me each gem. I do not have Jeb's Seal or anything else yet. But at level 46 she will at least give you the gems. I just charmed Felia today and am currently working on the Librarian. So it's possible to get the gems even though if you hail her she says you're too inexperienced.

# Sep 11 2001 at 11:59 AM Rating: Good
Spawn timer on most mobs is approx 18 minutes. Any of the 3 sites in the Library may pop a librarian.
Spirit tome appears to be the common Drop
Kunzar mantle and SPectral shroud appear to be uncommons
Sage's Battle Staff appears to be rare.

Anyone know what the spectral pestle is for? Lore and No Drop...

Good post Thayn. We need more posts with meaningful information.
I've camped this guy for 9 hours spread over 4 different days now. I have yet to see him. Maybe VI changed his spawn rate or I'm just unlucky.
Library could be solo'd by a 55ish enchanter. (Though most of my time in there I've had a 55 necro partner.) Problem is you have to break the spawn with your pet before you'd be able to root/nuke without pet. Reason being you have to be ready to charm if he spawns and can't do that with a pet unless you invis and then charm.
I recommend you keep AE mezz loaded just in case. It's easy to get agro from wandering mobs outside the front and back door and they can sometimes bring friends.
I used iksar form for regen and buffed Berserker Spirit for the damage shield. Seemed to handle most damage. Toughest battle in there is the Tome Keeper; cons lite blue at 55.
Hopefully I get my enchanted diamond soon. Happy hunting!
