Since some spawns have seemingly been removed, it may no longer be possible to complete this.

You say, 'Hail, Lady Gelistial'

Lady Gelistial nods towards Pharos and a soft gentle voice whispers in your mind as if carried by the breeze passing through the gentle grove. You tread upon the sacred ground of Tunare. I am the Lady Gelistial, baroness of the Tunarean Unicorns. Are you a friend of the Tunarean Court?

You say, 'I am a friend'

Lady Gelistial says 'Be wary of the black unicorns then my friend. All unicorns once inspired dreams and fascination in mortals but the lineage of Lithiniath has been twisted and now inspire delusions and madness. If my duties here were not so pressing I would seek the wisdom of Prince Thirneg in finding a cure for the cursed bloodline of Lithiniath.

You say, 'Who is Lithiniath?'

Lady Gelistial says 'Lithiniath was once a proud and noble Unicorn until he stumbled upon the realm of Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane. The lord of mischief twisted the magical nature of Lithiniath. The once noble unicorns fur grew blacker as delusions clouded his mind and madness follows where he treads.

You say, 'Who is prince thirneg?'

Lady Gelistial says 'Prince Thirneg is the ruler of the Tunarean Court. He resides in the Plane of Growth where he is constant contact with the all mother herself.

Go find the prince. He is located in the bottom of Tunare's Tree.

You say, 'Hail, Prince Thirneg'

Prince Thirneg says 'Salutations! I am the Prince of the Tunarean Court! What brings you to this most sacred of all Tunares blessed creations?'

You say, 'Lady Gelistial sent me'

Prince Thirneg says 'Gelistial is a very wise Lady. She does well in her duties to the court as well as the duties to her people. Unfortunately the weight of her responsibility prevents us from meeting as often as I would like.'

You say, 'I seek a cure for the line of Lithiniath'

Prince Thirneg says 'Ahh..Lithiniath, the first of the black unicorns, cursed by Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane to spread madness and delusions. Lithiniath is not evil, but his lawful magical nature has been replaced with a chaotic reflection of it that has twisted his mind. Lithiniaths physical form can not survive the removal of the chaotic magical nature. The only cure for Lithiniath is death and rebirth into a lawful vessel.'

Lithiniath is found in the Plane of Mischief along the moat outside the castle. Kill him and loot his horn. Nearby is A White Stallion. Give the white horse the horn and you'll receive a Crest of the Unicorn in exchange.

You gain experience!!

Lithiniath shouts 'The madness has fled my mind and I am once again whole! Give Gelistial my regards, I must leave this place and try to quell the madness I have inflicted.'

Midnight April 1, 2015. Received a system message that zone was repopping and all modern POM mobs despawned. Portions of POM 1.0 did then respawn including Lithiniath and a white stallion. After looking the quest up, I was able to kill Lithiniath and hand the horn to the white stallion, receiving the crest of the unicorn.

Other mobs also spawned, and many were dropping cards, but many of the other quest mobs were not on track. I was also able to get a Blam Stick to drop from the halflings in the entry hall.

I assume the zone will return to normal at midnight April 2.
No Longer Obtainable

The quest is confirmed broken by GMs. I've been at it for about 3.5 plus years now, the Crest of the Unicorn is not obtainable any more. The problem is Lithiniath and the white stallion. Neither pop. GMs have confirmed that these two mobs have not popped in the last 28 days and therefore they state:

"As for Lithiniath, after checking our logs, I see this mob has not been looted across any server for at least 28 days. This is a sign that the mob, most likely, was removed for some reason."

I will say that I did get to complete the quest line, only because I've had the other 5 crests for years now and the GMs involved were gracious enough and nice enough to give me the Crest of the Unicorn to complete it. Thanks Vorkera and Maaku!

It is a pity, the line and the story behind it are both wonderful and remind us what the game was originally about. Not AC, not HP, but for the quest, the real part of Everquest.

Do you get any Tunare faction for completing this quest? Curious as my wood elf druid is KOS to Tunare for pulling PoG a bit too often, now can't find a way that I can fix it at all. /bonk

Quest level

Why do they list this as a level 50 quest when the mob to kill is level ~64?
Both stallions up on MT yesterday

Had my 63 Druid in PoM and cleared the left wall all the way back and saw both horses up. Both conned indifferent to my Druid in wolf form.

He also Tashes. Tash is his only AoE.

Took Lith dow with a group average 59. He fears, blinds and summons.
Spawn location is zone in turn west and follow the wall around, you will come accross the white stallion first, Lith is very close and if you have a tracker (Ranger) Lith is on track from ZI.

None off the mobs in the forest can see through invis, so if you want to invis and take Lith out.

If not the mobs in the Forest are on the Level of Plane of Nightmare Treants, Root-rotable, by 59 Druid, but can hit hard with-out a healer.

Also require a Porter as ZI is Not ZO

The White Stallion despawns when you turn the horn in. I would guess it's on the same spawn timer as Lith is. This would mean if someone's killed it for fun, their spawns will be out of wack until the servers go down.

White Stallion's absence won't have any affect on the quest. You'll just have to turn the horn in later.

I did my turn-in today, a month or so after getting Lilinath's horn.

Within 5 minutes, Lilinath then shouted her farewell speech and dissappeared. Perhaps this is something to try and keep the spawns from being out of whack?

i think it should still work, otherwise why would Lithiniath be there, and have same loot?

its still there

I saw the black horse up yesterday Thursday, Oct 16th. The difficulty I am not sure of, I did not attempt to kill it.

Does anyone have any updated information on Lithiniath since the PoM update?

Has any tried this quest since the revamp of PoM? Is the unicorn still in the same spot and of the same level of difficulty?

My druid looted the horn after a shaman and necro duo'd Lith. Didn't see any sign of the white stallion though. So, need to figure out when and where it spawns.

Killed Unicorn today with a 65 druid and 65 necro. Druid's best nuke did 4% damage each time and was never resisted. We basically let the Necro's pet tank and just kept it up.

One bad thing though, White Stalltion didn't spawn after Unicorn died. Sent in petition about it, guess we will have to wait and see (

Gelistial's Horn
# Aug 10 2002 at 9:30 AM Rating: Decent

Well, being a shadowknight in an evil guild, when we found Gelistial, the first thing we did was kill her. Now, I have a quest item called Gelistial's Horn. I was told it might be a druid quest item, but haven't found anything, though i must say since we had to kill a GOOD unicorn, its probably an evil quest.
Anyone know what the heck to do with this horn? Any input would be appreciated.

Just killed him tonight with a couple of groups of friends.
2 - 60 warriors
1 - 60 cleric
1 - 57 SK
1 - 55 necro , 1 - 60 necro
1 - 56 mage
1 - 60 druid
1 - 60 paladin
1 - 55 monk

Good thing that we were tank heavy - Lithiniath was pretty much MR to everything that I tried to cast on him and he even resisted the SK's lifetaps.
He's a caster, I believe a lvl 63+ enchanter if I'm correct. He casts blind and an AE "chaotic" flight spell.

Hope this helps.
Good luck.
how hard is this unicorn?
# Oct 19 2001 at 7:19 PM Rating: Default
can anyone tell me how hard the unicorn is? seems some peeps finished the quest but they did not say how many they brought to kill it... 1 guy says he failed with 1 60 warrior 2 60 clerics 1 60 wizzie and a 60 chanter.. dunno how well these peeps were equiped though... just trying to get a sounding board for how many peeps to bring and try to kill this guy...
RE: how hard is this unicorn?

Killed the unicorn tonight with 11 people easy easy - even after the patch that upped most mobs hp in PoM.

Classes I can remeber being there were:
bard 1
druid 1
warrior 1
shamana 2
wizard 2
cleric 2
enchanter 1

can't remember what else - after you turn in the horn to the white unicorn it walks off.

Was first or second kill on lanys I think?

the horn that Eques drops is for the Bard epic. it will not work for this quest.
RE: equestrial
# Nov 17 2001 at 1:09 PM Rating: Default
Theres little to no chance it would work, and the reason why acid will work as well as the queen drop is becuase these 2 types of that quest 1) for the leggins 2) With almost all the same items but the harness from a gaint you get a braclet

I was really into this quest till I realized i had to go to the freakin plane of mischief...jeez
No idea how the heck im going to get past all that junk in NTov to get in there....For a sec thought i might actually be able to do this
almost done
# Aug 23 2001 at 10:33 PM Rating: Decent
i have 5 of the 6 crest done as well. the giants where easy just took hours of killing laborers. as for the named that roam around i took my 51 sk out and started killing what i thought may be place holders and they spawned. if you are looking for countess silveana get a evil race to kill the knight place holder in the sifae village at pos 1800 0 it is the middle spawn she will spawn after awhile. for lord prisimwing you need to just check near the druid ring every once in awhile he does spawn. for Lord gossimerwing i killed fairae dragons for ever to get him to spawn. now remeber thsi is bad faction so get a evil to do it thanks verant for that BTW. now for PoM i doubt i will get this part done since my server seems to fear that place /shrug. good luck to you all hope my info helps you out will be looking for more info on PoM.

Lvl 58 druid on MT server
