    NOTE: 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), including the Torn Books required in this quest.

    - In Kedge Keep, a harbinger of the seas can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Phinigel Autropos.
    - In Dreadlands, a harbinger of frost can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Gorenaire.
    - In Skyfire Mountains, a harbinger of flame can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Talendor.

    Find someone to port you to the Plane of Sky. Remember that all buffs are wiped when zoning in. Hand a friend at least 500 pp 1 cp. Have your friend buy a Veeshan's Key from the Keymaster on the first island. Your friend must then head to the northern teleportation dish on that island, hold the key on his cursor, and click the dish to enter the quest room. Have your friend chat with Dason Goldblade:

    You say, 'Hail, Dason Goldblade'

    Dason Goldblade says 'Greetings, ______. Are you pure of heart and soul?'

    You say, 'I am pure of heart and soul.'

    Dason Goldblade says 'Then choose. Do you wish your purity to be tested by Gregori or Dirkog?'

    You say, 'I wish to be tested by Dirkog.'

    Dason Goldblade says 'Dirkog is a gruff one, but his faith is what all paladins should strive to equal. Read this book and return it to me. After you have done so, I shall summon Dirkog to test you.'

    You receive a book called Walk with Evil, which reads:
    The Fall From Grace

    I be tellin' ye that I know the way me mate fell from the grace of his god there. He be fightin' and bashin' out in front of Butcher. The gobbies were movin' in makin' their presence known, and the King 'imself was there fightin. We got 'em back, pushin' and pushin' till they ain't fightin' any more but he went on a fightin'.

    They were screamin' and hollerin', beggin' fer their measly little lives and he warn't listenin'. Ye see, he was caught up in the ol' battle rage and was a fightin' like there was no tomorrow. The gods don't be lookin' kindly on this and he be a warrior now, plain and simple.

    I guess he likes it that way, but he be whinin' all the time how he doesn't hear Brell singin' in his ear no more. Aye, 'twas a sad day, one that I be takin' to me grave.

    When you're done, have your friend hand it back to Dason. Dason despawns and Dirkog Steelhand spawns.

    Dason Goldblade says 'Farewell.'

    Dirkog Steelhand says 'May faith guide you always.'

    Dason Goldblade says 'Farewell.'

    You say, 'Hail, Dirkog Steelhand'

    Dirkog Steelhand says 'Leave me be, ye orc kissin' son o' Innoruuk!'

    You say, 'I am not a son of Innoruuk.'

    Dirkog Steelhand says 'Eh? Ye say that ye ain't one o' the cursed dark elf dogs? Well then, laddie, are ye ready to get started or are ye here fer somethin' else??'

    You say, 'I am here for the holy swords.'

    What is the in-game text or lore that leads you to say this?

    Dirkog Steelhand says 'Eh, lad? What was that? Ye wish to hear o' holy swords? Well, lad, I ain't the one ye be needin' t' talk to!'

    You say, 'Who do I need to talk to?'

    Dirkog Steelhand says 'A follower o' the water god he be, an' one o' the most powerful holy knights e'er to walk Norrath. His name be Inte Akera, an' he kin tell ye what ye be wantin' t' know.'

    You say, 'Where is Inte Akera?'

    Before you continue you will need to have better than apprehensive faction to Deepwater Knights in order for Inte Akera to not just hand items back to you.

    Dirkog Steelhand says 'Ah, I see ye wish t' speak with him! Why didn't ye say that earlier, laddie? It would've saved ye some trouble! If ye wish to speak with him, ye must donate some spare change t' me ale.. er, t' me holy crusade fund! Well, lad, what d' ye say?'

    You say, 'How much should I donate?'

    Dirkog Steelhand says 'Eh? Oh, 500 platinum will be plenty, laddie!'

    Have your friend hand him 500 pp.

    Dirkog Steelhand says 'Thank ye, laddie! He's awaitin ya up top!'

    Inte Akera immediately spawns in the windmill on the fourth island (/loc?), commonly known as the Horse Island, Griffon Island, or Pegasus Island. He will stay up for about five minutes before despawning if no one has hailed him, so it's best for you to get yourself there while your friend does the hand-ins and dialogues.

    You say, 'Hail, Inte Akera'

    Inte Akera says 'Greetings, ______. I am Inte Akera. I have retired to the Plane of Sky after a long life toiling on Norrath's soil. Have you retreated here as well, or are you merely visiting?'

    You say, 'What toil?'

    Inte Akera says 'Long ago, before I came to this plane, I fought in the name of Prexus against all the evils that plagued Norrath. In that time, I have done everything one can do. I have fought for the causes of good. I gained the esteem of kings and lords. The sword I hold is but one example of the treasures I have sought and won. I have accomplished all that I can, have all that I desire. My toil is done and now I sit among the clouds in peace, occasionally blessing those who seek it and are found worthy.'

    You say, 'I seek your blessing.'

    Inte Akera says 'Many come seeking my blessings. No matter how minor the blessing they ask, all must prove that they embody the qualities of a paladin before I bless them.'

    You say, 'How can I prove myself?'

    Inte Akera says 'I believe the two most important qualities of a paladin are nobility and sacrifice. Hand me an item of yours that proves you understand what nobility and sacrifice are. Be warned however, if I do not think as you do, I will simply accept the item as a gift, and give you no blessing.'

    Need dialogues.

    Inte Akera says 'No.. I was unable to kill my most hated foe, Miragul. The head of this wretched, foul necromancer is forever out of the reach of justice. It would be worth restoring him to his former state for the chance to take his head as a trophy.'

    You say, 'Why were you unable to kill Miragul?'

    Inte Akera says 'You think you can succeed where I cannot? Perhaps you can noble one.. Bring me the head of Miragul, his robe and hand me back the two blessings I gave you, and in return I shall bequeath to you this sword I carry. Good luck my friend.'

    Need dialogues or game lore used to determine what quest items are required. We'll skip ahead here for convenience.


    Old text is below.

    Based upon the log with Inte Akera, these are the items you need for the fiery avenger. Given the difficulty of traveling within the Plane of Sky, it is recommended that you get the head and robe of Miragul, Ghoulbane and Soulfire beforehand.

    Note: To get the blessings, you need to talk to Inte Akera. He is located on the Fourth Island in the Plane of Sky. You first need to talk to Dason Goldblade. Tell him, "I wish to be tested by Dirkog." Dason will hand you a book; read it if you wish. Return the book to him and he will despawn; Dirkog Steelhand will spawn in his place. Give Dirkog 500pp to cause Inte Akera to spawn. Inte Akera can despawn quickly, so you should be at the island and have a friend hand Dirkog the money so that you don't lose the spawn.

    1) The Blessing of Nobility: You need a high faction with Akera, who is a Deepwater Knight. Give him Soulfire to receive Inte's First Blessing, the blessing of nobility. The details on getting Soulfire are here.

    2) The Blessing of Sacrifice: You need a high faction with Akera, who is a Deepwater. Give him Ghoulbane to receive Inte's Second Blessing, the blessing of sacrifice.

    3) and 4) The Head and Robe of Miragul: First, you want a Burnt Book and a Frost Book. You can get the Burnt Book off Lord Nagafen, Severilous, Talendor, or Melalafen. The Frost Book can be looted off Lady Vox, Gorenaire, or Faydedar.

    Take the Frost Book and Burnt Book to Rysva To`Biath, the bartender in the Blind Fish Tavern in Neriak Commons at +10, -850, along with 1000pp. She will combine them into the Book of Scale.

    Alternatively, you can take the 1000pp, Frost Book, and Burnt Book to Rineval Talyas, a Human Enchantress near a small supply camp outside the walls of Northern Qeynos and get the same result.

    You say, 'Hail, Rineval Talyas'

    Rineval Talyas says 'Hello, _____.'

    You say, 'I seek a scribe.'

    Rineval Talyas looks at you strangely. 'Who told you this?'

    You say, 'Karn told me.'

    (Karn who? Dialogues and full name needed.)

    Rineval Talyas says 'I see. If a scribe is what you seek, then bring me the torn books of fire and ice. A donation of 1000 platinum is needed as well. The donation will be offered as a blessing to the gods.''

    Find Oracle of K`Arnon in the Ocean of Tears at -28.99, -6737.39, -197.58 post-revamp.

    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].

    You say, 'What is the Tome of Ages?'

    Oracle of K`Arnon says 'The Tome of Ages has been compiled over the millennia by the Scribes of [Dal]. It was divided into seven distinct books by the scribes to keep the knowledge from one such as me. That said, with aid, I shall unite these books and the Tome of Ages shall be mine.

    You say, 'Who are the Dal?'

    Oracle of K`Arnon says 'They were elves once, but now are Teir'Dal, and as evil as they are wise. Many tomes have they written, but none greater than the Tome of Ages.

    You say, 'What are the books?'

    Oracle of K`Arnon says 'The seven Books that make up the Tome of Ages are those of Enlightenment, Scale, Turmoil, Monuments, Elders, Blood, and the Lost Book. Each of these great books is an important chapter in the history of Norrath. If ever you find one of these books, bring it to me.

    You say, 'What about the Book of Scale?'

    Oracle of K`Arnon says 'Ah, the Book of Scale.. It would be wondrous indeed if you could recover the Book of Scale for me. If you do manage to procure the Book of Scale, I will gladly part with an artifact of my own that may be of interest to you.'

    Hand in the Book of Scale.

    Oracle of K`Arnon says 'Unbelievable! The legendary Book of Scale is mine! Please, take this as a small token of my thanks. I warn you however, if you ever manage to join the corporeal body to the evil that resides within, you will rue the day.'

    He will give you back an artifact called Miragul's Philactery (dialogues needed). You must then head to the Everfrost caves, which you get to by going through a hole in the ice at the river (enduring breath is very useful for this trip). Get an enchanter to charm the Lich and then hand him the Phylactery (charming may not be required - lich will be KoS but you can still do the hand-in). This will spawn the true Miragul, a 53+ necromancer who is as hard to kill as a dragon, so make sure you have lots of friends with you. When you kill him, he drops the robe and his head.

    Turn in these four items for the Fiery Avenger.*

    *at this point we'll let Gbaji's summation of this quest roll:

    Ultimately, you need four items to start: The burnt book, the frost book, ghoulbane, and soulfire. Assuming you have them all, the rest is just turn in's (more or less). But each is transformed in the following ways:

    1. Take the burnt and frost books plus 1000 pp to Rineval Talyas and receive the Book of Scale.

    2. Turn the Book of Scale in to the Oracle in Ocean of Tears to get Miragul's Phylactery.

    3. Turn the Phylactery in to Miragul's Lich to spawn the real Miragul. Kill him and get his head and robe.

    So at this point, you've taken two items and turned them into two other items.

    4. Go to the PoSky and spawn Inte Akera (have some one else spawn him while you wait in the windmill on pegasus island).

    5. Hand him SoulFire (and only SoulFire). Receive Inte's First Blessing.

    6. Hand him Ghoulbane (and only Ghoulbane). Receive Inte's Second Blessing.

    So at this point, you've turned those two items into yet two other items.

    7. You should now have 4 items again: 2 blessings from Inte Akera, Miragul's Head and Miragul's Robe. Hand him those four items (all at once) and receive your Fiery Avenger.

    Need all dialogs, faction hits if any, /loc of quest mobs, missing quest items, any other relevant quest information.

    Yes, for the 53 Plus people, and They SHOULD, go attack Faydedar, Servilious, or Talendor for the burnt book, and Faydedar, Goreinaire for the frost book.
    I agree with the above poster that level 52+ paladins should NOT reserve something that they can't participate in regardless of the "guildies" they brought to buff, if your a 52-46 Paladin leading the raid on Nag/Vox to reserve the book then THAT is ok, it just makes the raid run a bit more smoothly if you bring higher-end people for buffs.

    # Dec 04 2001 at 3:24 PM Rating: Decent
    The above quest description says that you can be indifferent to the Lich to give him the items. Invis vs Undead makes you indifferent up until u actually click trade, would this work?

    mmmm, no, as soon as you initiate a trade your invis breaks
    RE: Invis. vs Undead?
    # Apr 10 2002 at 8:03 PM Rating: Decent
    Actually, to the best of my knowledge (3 attempts) any invis will stay up until you hit the Give key in the trade box, which should mean that the lich would not see you and the necro would pop before the lich could attack you. But this is actually untested on the lich to the best of my knowledge :)

    How to do the quest...
    # Oct 16 2001 at 3:42 PM Rating: Good
    Ok folks I have browsed through the boards of everlore and this website to find tons of questions and false information given to my fellow Paladin's so I'll help everyone out.


    This quest begins in the plane of air when you talk to Inte Akera, who is an Erudite Paladin of the Deepwater Knights. Don't venture to the plane of air until you have all the items, but it's a great idea to start working on your Deepwater Knight faction by camping a lvl 5 necromancer in Tox by the docks.


    -The Ghoulbane
    You find this off the Froglok Shin Lord in Upper Guk. It's his rare drop, but plenty of people sell it now for cheap.

    -The Soulfire
    A miniquest for the fiery avenger. Don't feel like explaing this whole quest to you but you can email me at if you have any questions.

    -The head and robe of Miragul himself
    These are obtained by killing both the old world dragons, Nagafen and Vox who are both lvl 55, and getting both halves of the book of fire and frost (called torn burnt book and torn frost book).
    You then take these two books and 1000 platnum pieces to an npc in North Qeynos named Talys Rineval (something like that). She's in the fields and if you're facing the gate, she's to the left in the back of the field by some boxes. You hand her both books and 1000 plat at the same time and you are awarded with the book of scale itself. It's fine to have indifferent faction with her. And the book of scale itself isn't nodrop =). You then venture to the Ocean of Tears and seek out the Oracle of K'Anarn. If you haven't killed him in the past and he's indifferent, just hand him the book of scale and you will recieve Miragul's Soul. If you have killed him however, get a high lvl enchanter to just charm him and then hand in the book, you'll be ok. Once this is completed you head to Everfrost and start killing roaming Ice Bone skeletons in order to spawn the Lich of Miragul. He's KOS to every paladin out there, so get 3+ groups of lvl 50+ people with you and an enchanter, pull him, charm him, then hand him his Soul. This will spawn the orginal Miragul himself, the first necromancer on the face of Norrath. He's lvl 53 with an AE lifetap, but he's not too hard with 3+ groups. Kill em and loot his head and robe.

    Now you just hit a plane of air raid and have someone go to the questhall for you and stay there during the raid. Once you hit the fourth isle and clear most of it, have the person in the questhall hand the quest npc 500pp (I believe his name is Dirkog Steelhand...not totally sure) and this will spawn Inte Akera on the fourth isle of PoA. Hand him the ghoulbane to recieve your 1st blessing, then hand in your soulfire to recieve your second blessing (make sure you have GREAT faction with deepwater knights). Then hand him your two blessings, and the head and robe of Miragul and WALAH!!!!!! You now have completed the Fiery Avenger quest.

    MQ'ing the piece from Felewith
    # Sep 20 2001 at 1:44 PM Rating: Default
    I was told by a guildmate that hunting in PoG had no effect on my being able to complete my epic. I had my doubts, but he was level 60 so I thought he knew better. Turns out, I'm deeply KOS in felewith, which makes getting the blessing from there very tough. Is that piece of the epic multiquestable?

    Pure water in WFP

    I just got the water last night .. it wasn't all that hard .. only need about 4-6 invis potions ..then you take the aquaducts to the monk guild and use an invis potion .. go past the peasant woman in the aquaduct to the back of it and wait for the roaming guard to leave. When he does run up and cast anything to drop invis. And say "I will take it" .. the woman will give you the water. Invis up again so that the roaming guard won't agro .. then head into the building right behind the peasant woman and go in the back to find her brother "Joshua" .. give him the water and it'll be given back to you changed into pure water .. invis up with another potion and get the heck out of dodge ... congrats .. you are now completely done with Freeport.

    New NPC to combine the book
    # Aug 14 2001 at 8:07 PM Rating: Default
    Rineval Talyas in Qeynos will combine the Book of Scale. Neriak isn't needed anymore.
    RE: New NPC to combine the book
    # Aug 28 2001 at 2:31 PM Rating: Default
    Still trying figure out why Neriak would have been included in this quest in the 1st place... since it wasn't to kill something???

    But then again EQ's storyline and quests for Paladins are totally screwed up anyway, so guess it would have been par for the course. Good to see they corrected getting the Ghoulbane ( too bad for me I have live with the fact I slaughtered and ally Paladin for it... as like Paladins...the Frogloks in Upper Guk hate evil races and the Undead and now me included. ) and made it a quest for those who chose not to kill the Shin Lord.
    Maybe one day they'll get around to fixing Dru Razbind's faction so Paladins can complete the Chalice of Conquest quest ( not just dwarves )... not a good quest but was to lead to another quest( that they've obiviously abandoned at the moment ).
    Oh well not like this a roleplaying game or anything.

    Wonders when Paladins will get the ability to Mount Animal or Flying Dragon to use those fancy lances... otherwise WTF is the point of having one??? Too bad horses are extinct but at least the Snow Bunnies made it!

    Does anyone know if the breastplate from hate part can be multi-quested? I left a hate raid, and not one minute later the BP dropped. A guild member looted it, but I don't know if it's useless or not.

    # Aug 24 2001 at 10:41 PM Rating: Default

    The Breastplate from Hate can be MQ'd. I had the BP and someone brought the gem. That's for the Fiery Defender part of the quest but to answer you're question, yes it is.

    Help with FA
    # Jul 20 2001 at 7:42 AM Rating: Default
    The oracle cons 'threatening' to me due to the fact that I killed him once.

    Can I still hand in the Book of Scale to him with this con?

    If not, can I invis myself and hand it to him? Or do I have to get an enchanter to charm him like as with Miragul.

    Those that had completed FA quest and was in the same situation as me please help me...

    Any help is most appreciated! :)

    Thanks in advance,
