This quest starts in Western Wastes and is given out by Makil Rargon. When Makil is hailed he will talk about the fusibility of elements and ask you to bring him 4 items to combine in a box he gives you. After you combine the 4 items and hand the combined box back to him he will give you the Strength of the Elements. The 4 items that are needed are:

-- Fusible Coral Ore - Off Phinigel Autropos in Kedge Keep
-- Fusible Earthen Ore - From An Animated Construct in the Hole

Receive Fusibility Study: Part 3

You say, 'Fusibility test?'

This must have been a bug of some sort as I camped this mob and he actually floated right past the Efreeti and both ignored eachother

Basically, there is no more Master Yael... In the revamp of the Hole, they moved a lot of mobs around and got rid of that particular one, at least. The ore now drops off of the constructs at the very bottom of the Hole, I believe, near where the Guardian of the Seal is. This is the area where Nortlav (now Echo of Nortlav) used to be.

Since the revamp these drop off "an Animated Construct". They are guards to The Guardian of the Seal. Guardian is a level 70 mob. Constructs were dark blue at level 65 I believe. All 3 spawn where Master Yael used to spawn.

I have confirmed that Markil Rargon is in fact on Temple of Sol Ro faction. You can increase your Temple of Sol Ro faction the fastest by doing the quest below:
https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=305

I went from KoS to Amiably with 4000 gold pieces. The named orc, Ortallis, is on ToSR faction, so you may have to root him away from the camp and then do the turn in. The turn in mob will not talk to you if you are kos to ToSR but will give you faction anyway if you do the 30 gp turn in.

Regarding Guarding Kozzarym, he is not as rare as is indicated in the previous post. However, there are alot of folks that do this quest so he is killed often. He can be found out near zone in to Dragon Necropolis, which is where I pulled him to to kill him. He likes to path along the edge of the canyon down there. Track comes in handy for this but DN is a good starting point. One other thing, he is not snarable, he is immune to changes in run speed. I solo'd him with my 62 Shaman and my 59 Druid, and the druid didn't do much during the fight. He slows easy and all dots landed pretty easy.

Aye he is very easy but i found him in the northern part of the zone in the water. He was fighting a dragon so i killed him both. Cake.

Okay I have had all drops except the one from Guardian Kozzalym in WW for some time now.

Master Yael was not a problem at all, you just need to track him which is very easy. Ok he is rare spawn but so what at least you know how to track him.

Phinny is more than gimp and easy, you track him and kill. He is 12 hour spawn so no problemo.

Skyfire ground spawn is a laff hehe

GUARDIAN KOZZALYM?? Who the (#/U/ is that? You claim "he is always up" but he is not. Try to track him and see. I have got help from LOTS of ranger lvl 60+ they have ran around in the zone many times. He is DEFININTELY not up "all the time" hehehe, he must be as rare as Master Yael.

Some people claim Master Yael is the bottle-neck but thats not true, talk to ANY high level who is doing this quest, they usually end up with having all items EXCEPT the one from Guardian Kozzalym...

So please could anyone give any good, effective and reliable information about this Guardian Kozzalym? How rare is he? How do you track him? I heard you need see invis in order to track him but still that is not enough. We know exactly how to track all other mobs in this quest, but not this one.

Please if someone can help here, i would really appreciate it.

I've found Guardian Kozzalym several times off the map or below the world in the southwest corner of zone. Swim around in the water there and eventually he will come smack you. Confirmed this a couple times with my druid. If he's not up in a normal path through the zone, try checking there.

I just finished the quest today.

I got my piece from KK off of phinny while helping a wizzy friend work his epic(I was 52 at the time). Phinny is about a group mob and soloable by many. Not too tough just a matter of setting up a ranger to track him and move there fast if he is up.

Next I got Guardian kozzalym in WW. For me (57 now 55 at the time ranger) he was very easy to track and kill with a couple friends... Basically I just started killing mastodons, hounds and brontotheriums until I found kozz on track. I spent maybe 10 hours in the zone gettign pretty good exp off the animals and looting high priced pelts i later sold for a ton of money... When I found Kozz on track he was wandering in the southwest part of the zone then i called up a few buds and took him without any trouble.

Master yael is the most difficult fight in the quest and easy to check on using a halfling rogue i snuck down to the ledge that looks over his spawn point. I would check occasionally for him to be up and found that when he was he generally didnt live long... Just be sure to have friends lined up ahead of time and move fast to him... a mage on the ledge to coth the group down most of the way is a nice bonus.

After then going to skyfire to get the last piece (ground spawn) I headed to WW for the turn in... Ironically i saw kozzalym on track and made the turn in to makil rargon. Happily now i wear the stregth of elements. Good quest... Took the span of like 4 months but was worth the maybe 20 hours of total time placed into getting it.

Your coordinates need pos and neg indicators. The correct location is positive 900, negative 1500. They are on the ground at the edge of the lava there, they look like bags.

Not sure if there's one out there, but I got mine just south of the volcano, out of the lava. There was a small pedestal there, and a bunch of groundspawns around it, maybe 10 or so, all the same. Looks the same as the groundspawn items in EW or GD, a black and orange speckled-looking thing.

So do you have to be better than indifferent to do the quest? I am pretty sure I am not liked at all by Sol Ro faction minded peeps as I am an Iksar. I don't want to waste my time chasing after this if it can't be done with sneak to do the turn in. Thanks in advance for any info :)

It seems highly unlikely that he's on Sol Ro faction -- very few people kill any mobs that would make them KoS to the Temple of Solusek Ro - the only ones I can think of would be Ortallius in South Ro and the renegade shadowed man in Mistmoore (Enyti?). That, or 'hail' the named Efreeti in the Temple of Sol Ro till they got to KoS.

Its not hard to get KOS to SolRo faction if your bored. There is a guy in the basement that gives you negitive faction from hailing him. I remember sitting there spam hailing him for fun watching my faction drop like a stone, then training the whole place to the zone. (whoops) Of couse then I had to fix my faction to do the quest hehe
RE: Markil Rargons faction???
# Apr 19 2003 at 6:40 AM Rating: Default
It may well be that Markil Rargon is just racist (or species-ist). :)

As of last night, Markil Rargon was KoS to an Iksar Monk, and Amiable to a Wood-Elf druid; using Wolf Form moved the Monk to Amiable also, which was quite enough to obtain the quest, and complete it.
shoulders
# Mar 09 2002 at 1:40 PM Rating: Default
this quest sounds not mq'able...is that true? Also how hard is yael to take down..phinny is not that hard

None of these mobs are "hard" to take down. The difficulty comes in catching them up and beating the contending people to it. Phinny is fairly easy because he spawns roughly twice a day. The ground spawn you of course just pickup, and the air elemental in WW is almost always up. The ***** of the quest is Yael.

Now, Yael isn't a complete wimp. He has 32k hp, hits for 167's, and nukes so easy there, but he also DT's every 30 seconds. So make sure you drop him and drop him fast.

His difficulty is his spawn time. Which is completely fuX0red. It's like a 2 week spawn or more, and he does NOT spawn with a patch. Then you topple the fact that this shoulder piece really is killer so there is tons of competition on this one bottleneck in the quest.

Best advice is either camp an assling rogue there or make a lowbie Erudite to jump from the top and check for him every day you sign on.

Got him last night just outta chance. Wish you the same kind of luck.

You are correct, because the quest requires you to combine no drop items in a no drop container.

You have to be the one to combine the items in the Box.

Any quest that requires only 1 item turned in cannot be MQ'd

The quest for the shoulders went live after the server-wide GM event happened. During the GM event Al Kabor needed help to kill an air elemental in the wurm caves in GD to complete the fusible ore collection. He then gave a scepter to the wiz that helped him.

Now you gather the ores and combine them in the box from Markil and give back the combined box to get the shoulders.

From everything I've been told, he spawns with patch and is down for 5 days if killed. He's usualy up, though, so it shouldn't be some huge camp like Yael.

He is on temple of Sol ro faction. I have done the quest and have shoulders now.. i am reading this page to find out information about the sceptor he talks about .. if anyone has any information concerning this it would be appreciated.

I dont know if this somehow has to do with the staff of alkabor which is an artifact (or maybe relic).. which means only one per server.. a wiz on VZ has this staff (it is amazing btw .. has a 10 pt mana regen built into it and c2 stacks with it and similar/better stats as epic). The wiz (nayfear) won this staff in a gm event so i assume that there is no relation between them .. only asking about this because i caught the end of a conversation in guildchat when someone was talking about both the staff and the quest from makil. Also makil is supposedly alkabors most trusted assistant so it would make sense that he would reward a staff of alkabor or something similar.

#Reegor, Posted: May 12 2002 at 3:56 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) A guildie of mine actually has this staff. It's an artifact (one per server) and I believe she actually got it in GD. Not 100% sure on the location though. I am sure I could direct you to her if you have further questions. Pretty sure she'd know better than I would. :)
Scepter

on would assume that the scepter can more than likely be obtained by a caster character by turning in the shoulders, however, if you REALLY dont wanna do the quest again, dont try this, i havent yet

Yes, he definatly is on a faction, and i suppose the last poster was right, becuase i also got nuked by him...and am kos in sol temple.
