You say, 'Hail, Triblix Tikbok'

Triblix Tikbok says 'Pleasure to meet ya! Have you come to the Illuminarium Industria to gaggle about or have you come looking for [some work]?'

You say, 'I have come looking for some work.'

Triblix Tikbok says 'Well in that case I sure could use the assistance of a powerful Barbarian such as yourself. You see my job here is to construct the lighting for Katta Castellum and I'm always in need of more supplies. I need a fresh supply of [zelniak oil] for the standard city street lanterns and a fresh supply of [acrylia phosphate] to construct more phosphorous lanterns and torches.'

You say, 'What zelniak oil?'

Triblix Tikbok says 'Zelniaks are a strange creature that live on the light side of Luclin. Their fat can be boiled in a brew barrel with a flask of water and poured into an empty bottle to produce an oil that is an excellent fuel for lanterns. I will trade for every four bottles of zelniak oil you produce for me.'

Reward Vials

Confirmed the reward is called "Combine Fire Flask" - has 4 charges of "Rain of Fire" - An AOE spell. The flasks are NOT - No Drop - so I've done the quest to get 4 of them to give to a low level alt. May not be too powerful at my level but for a lowbie should be good enough to make a difference.

Fought for the first time in Dawnshroud today... for about 1 hour and 6 of these dropped... either we got really lucky or they made it drop more often... always was on zelniaks.

When i killed for EXP in DSP, I noticed that the Lump of Zelniak Fat drops MUCH more commonly off of Large Zelniaks. Also, the Large Zelniaks in the "crater", the center of zone, seem to drop them more and there are more Large Zelniaks that spawn there.

Your faction standing with Katta Castellum Citizens got better.
Your faction standing with Validus Custodus got better.
Your faction standing with Magus Conlegium got better.
Your faction standing with Citizens of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Shoulders of Seru got worse.

Handed in 4 bottles of Zelniak Oil and got a Vial with 4 charges of Rain of Fire, minor coinage and faction. Not a really good reward if you ask me.

What he said. Rain of Fire is an AoE wave type spell for 57 damage

An AoE wave type for 57?! A Shammy gets better wave type AoE's than that, doesnt sound worth it to me either. Guess for someone that doesnt have that luxury it prob isnt too bad I suppose.)

I've gotten a few of these pretty quick in one day. I've been camping lightcrawlers and zelniaks by Sanctus Seru zone. Mayhaps it was a good day? Wish I had known what it was for, so I wouldn't have eaten them all. =^) You can also check venders since I've seen them there also.

For some reason, I see plenty of these...
What's Required?
# Dec 19 2001 at 9:31 AM Rating: Default
Well, as he said, a lump of zelniak fat (very rare in Dawnshroud, maybe others) a water, and an empty bottle.
Requirements to brew?

What is required to brew the oil?

Have foraged a lot of silt eggs and owlbear eggs in Hollowshade Moor - was hoping either would be tailoring related (along the lines of drake egg oil) ... but if for a quest, that works too. :)

Finishing up this quest atm, but servers came down for a patch. Don't know the reward yet, but can verify that brewing Zelniak Oil wasn't trivial at 101 skill. Just a little FYI.
