You say, 'Hail, Realla Segoan'

Realla Segoan says 'Greetings, Deedee . I am Realla Segoan from the city of Erudin. I cannot spend time chatting with you now. I have [official tasks] to perform.

You say, 'what official tasks'

Realla Segoan says 'I have been sent to this continent by the High Council of Erudin to find information about the disappearance of [Al'Kabor].

You say, 'what al'kabor'

Realla Segoan says 'Al'Kabor is believed to be the most powerful living wizard on Norrath. In addition, he is also one of Erudin's oldest citizens. The High Council is very interested in receiving information about his disappearance. So far, from the [reports] that I have collected, there appears to have been a [troublemaking gnome] involved.

You say, 'what reports'

Realla Segoan says 'I have received many reports regarding the disappearance. Adventurers upon this continent have reported sightings of some of Al'Kabor's [missing research notes].

You say, 'what Missing research notes'

Realla Segoan says 'It appears that through his travels, the great wizard has misplaced some of his research notes. Perhaps if I can find someone to [help collect the research notes], the High Council may be able to determine what caused Al'Kabor's disappearance. However, only those who truly know the path the great wizard's research has taken him will know where to find the missing research notes.

You say, 'i will help collect the research notes'

Realla Segoan says 'Excellent! Take this Research Binder and fill it with the research notes when you find them. Once it is filled, seal it and take it to Noilgin Mindtune here at the outpost, so that he may deliver it to Erudin. Be forewarned though, it will be a dangerous path to follow. Most likely, the research notes have fallen into possession of some very dangerous beings.

You say, 'What troublemaking gnome?'

Realla Segoan says 'Yes, a gnome. I have received reports that the gnomish wizard, Ognit Eznertob, was near Al'Kabor when he disappeared. I have attempted to contact him about it, however, he seems to be avoiding me and the city of Erudin. This is not the first time that this gnome has caused trouble for the Erudites. He was arrested a while back for tampering with hatch in the Hole, releasing evil denizens from the Underfoot. If he is responsible for the disappearance, great lengths will be taken to assure the citizens of Erudin that the gnome will no longer be trouble for them.

Collect Six notes. Check the item pages for each one to see what they drop off of.

Research Notes - Part 1 in Crypt of Dalnir
Research Notes - Part 2 rare in Kaesora Library area
Research Notes - Part 3 much more common Kaesora Library area
Research Notes - Part 4 in City of Mist in the front area
Research Notes - Part 5 in City of Mist in the front area
Research Notes - Part 6 in Dreadlands

Combine them in the Research Binder and give the result to Noilgin Mindtune. He gives you Packaged Research Notes to give to Lanivon Baxer, who gives you the ring.

OK, just got 2 and 3. So:

Research Notes - Part 1 dropped in Dalnir off one of the kly sarnaks in the second to last room on level 3.
Research Notes - Part 2 and Part 3 dropped in Kaesora Church off "guardian of Xalgoz" or "minion of Xalgoz. I was just killing all the undead repeatedly until I got my drops. Xalgoz spawned for me too during that time :-) Loc is -60, 650, -300.
Research Notes - Part 4 and Part 5 dropped in City of Mist. I forget just where, but it was near the front gate.
Research Notes - Part 6 dropped in Dreadlands off one of the "a plaguebone theif" skellies that hang out at 1045, 9317

Now, I'm off to see Realla, lol.

Just looted Part 6 in Dreadlands off a plaguebone thief. Several of them spawn in a building at 1045, 9317. So someone just got these two backwards in the quest info

Has anyone come across Resarch Page 4 for this quest recently?

I came across Page 4 with page 5 together TWICE at different intervals. Both had dropped for me in City of Mist. Hope that helps

I was camping in City of Mist for my Shaman Epic, and I came across Research notes 5 and 6.
ring could be better...
# Jun 10 2002 at 8:32 PM Rating: Default
This ring isn't the greatest, but for a bard who wants to increase his/her charisma, this would help. although i'll admit you can get better rings (for charisma) made buy jewelcrafters.

Just a thought

As usual, yet another useless quest for the Wizzie class. What the heck does Verant have aginst Wizards? We get all the crappy gear, it gets nerfed if its any good to begin with and then I have to spend my life running from twinked out,E-bay meele classes that just look to take advantage of this obvious unevenness in the game. Getting pretty sick of this. My only hope is one day I can have an Ice comet or manaburn. yeah gee the other 50+ levels of torture are really worth it getting to that point? I suppose they are for most the candyland servers out there but folks...take a walk on Rallos Zek for awhile. you'll get my point.ok enough complaining, im off to get SOW potions now at 100pp a pop, and then a C3 for another 100pp a pop, just so I can barely survive in a Norrath owned by fat ogers and trolls that don't even blink at a 400+DD spell. Hmmmmm bitter barrie today. :(

#Anonymous, Posted: May 23 2002 at 10:56 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Why is it that a quest involving Al'Kabor, a wiz, has a reward that is Crappy for other wiz. Dosnt make sence to me.
Yes /rude

Perhaps verant thinks we wizards have enough items or quests to do, well it´s false, we´re probably the class with less of them.Anyway like always Al´Kabor is no more than a pain in the *** to us Wizards.
Different List

I've been looking for the pages, and have each one but 4. I play on The Rathe, and got them in a different order than listed here.

Research Notes - Part 1 dropped in Dalnir
Research Notes - Part 2 and Part 3 dropped in Kaesora Library
Research Notes - Part 5 and Part 6 dropped in City of Mist Stables

I'm now off to Dreadlands to get the last note.

Additional info... 2 and 3 drop off any of the undead in Keasora. I got mine while camping Xalgoz.

Basically, you combine the pages and hand them in to Noilgin Mindtune (and bard on the FV dock... near where the boat stops). He then give you an item to give to Lanivon Baxer (about 30 yards west of the Wiz Spire in Toxx). Lanivon gives you cash and the ring

Ring of the Messenger
2dex, 6sta, 5cha, 2agi, all/all

All in all, a crap quest. The ring doesnt even have any ac or int. The only class I could see benefitting from this is a chanter.

/rude verant for giving us an Al'Kabor quest that doesnt even help Wizzies (unless this is a start of something larger... which I doubt)

Yes we found this just before luclin release and hoped it would be a right click ring with gate to somewhere in luclin....

Page 1 from theives in Dread lands
Page 2 rare in Kaesora Library area
Page 3 much more common Kaesora Library area
Page 4 City of mist front
Page 5 City of Mist Front
Page 6 Crypt of Dalnir found on 2nd and 3rd floor

All pages are no drop and you are given a book to combined them in which means no multiquesting this one.

I left the stats at home :( it's like 3 cha and a couple other stats not great but I keep it as a token for the work.

I had several drops in dalnir a couple nights ago, off caster Kly, and I think they were Research Notes page 1.

Anyone know the stats on the Quest Result, and it's exact name, and/or a site with additional details? I am unable to find any info on this quest.

I was fighting down in Kaesora at the church and note 2 dropped
# Jan 15 2002 at 4:58 PM Rating: Decent
I was killing time in Dalnir the other night and I recall a research note dropping from one of the mobs. I don't recall the number or which specific mob, I am almost positive it was one of the Kly though.

Edit: my sig was out of date :P
