This quest is for good aligned casters.

Xalirilan Zarinokosalio says 'Oi there! It's nice to meet you ______, you must excuse me for I am currently working on a special spell for my studies. I would love to talk but I have to teach a class very soon to the new [initiates] and I don't have my lesson prepared yet. Are you also a [young initiate of the Eldritch Collective]? If you are then I hope you will be ready for the lesson.'

You say, 'I am a young Initiate of the Eldritch Collective.'

Xalirilan Zarinokosalio says 'Excellent. You must understand that I am very pressed for time but if you are a young initiate of the Collective then I always have time to share my knowledge with you. If you are interested I have some [training] for you to begin. These tasks will help you prepare for the upcoming lesson as well!'

You say, 'What training?'

Xalirilan Zarinokosalio says 'I have a number of tasks that I ask new recruits of the Eldritch Collective to complete. These task will test both your ability to fight as well as your navigational skills, 2 very important factors on your road to infinite knowledge. When you are ready to begin your journeys I will present you with a Tinkered Sewing Kit that you will use to gather numerous [important components].'

You say, 'What are the important components?'

Xalirilan Zarinokosalio says 'All right then ______, here is your Tinkered Sewing Kit. In this sewing kit you will combine a number of recipes that will be used for creating your Eldritch Collective Initiate Armor. When you are ready to craft a certain armor piece all you must to is tell me which piece you [want] to craft. I will then present you with the component recipe along with the applicable pattern for [Caps], [Bracers], [Sleeves], [Sandals], [Trousers], [Gloves] and [Robes]. When you have completed the material for whatever piece you asked for you will combine it in a sewing kit with the appropriate pattern to fashion your armor piece. I do suggest though that you attempt your robe last as the components are more difficult then any other piece to collect.'

You say, 'I want to craft a robe.'

Xalirilan Zarinokosalio says 'I am very pleased to see that you have progressed through your training in such a timely manner, you should be very proud! To create your robe material you will need to combine 5 Grikbar Kobold Scalps, 1 Young Ebon Drake Bile, 1 Brownie Brain, 1 Diseased Bone Marrow, 1 Cloth Shirt and the evil Faeronoliop`s Staff in your assembly kit. Once you have created the proper material take it to a sewing kit along with this pattern to fashion your very own Robe of the Collective Initiate. Please return to me once you have fashioned your robe for I might have a few [final tasks] for you to complete.'

You say, 'What final tasks?'

Xalirilan Zarinokosalio says 'Well I have been studying some new annals that were presented to me by some high councilmen in Rivervale. They had found them will excavating some ruins in the Gorge of King Xorbb and were unable to decipher what they meant. I had them bound in a special tome but unfortunately some pickpockets stole them from me in hopes that they would bring them great power I suppose. If you can find these 4 pages for me I would be very grateful for I would be able to finish my studies of them. Will you [seek out the stolen tome pages]?'

You say, 'I will seek out the stolen tome pages.'

Xalirilan Zarinokosalio says 'I am very pleased to hear that you are willing to help and from your track record I have no doubt in my mind that you will be able to retrieve these pages. I would guess that they were given to the Dark Reflection casters for study after they were stolen from me so that would be where I would look. These casters do not understand our cause and serve dark gods so lethal force may be necessary. Just please be careful and make sure you have worthy adventuring partners with you because the battle may not be easy.'

The stolen Tome Pages are dropped by various dark-aligned gnomes in the Steamfont Mountains. Bring them back to Xalirilan:

Xalirilan Zarinokosalio says 'I knew you could do it _____. You have proven yourself worthy of your god and of your Guild! All the highest ranking officials of the Collective will surely hear of your good deeds. Upon studying these pages a bit further it seems it forms a book of incantations that will aid you in furthering your studies. Please take this magical book for I have learned all I can from it. Good luck!'

Your faction standing with Gem Choppers got better.
Your faction standing with King AkAnon got better.

I Want my Spellbook Back
# May 26 2005 at 6:18 PM Rating: Decent

Just logged my 24th Level Gnome Enchanter on for the first time in a while to find my marvellous

Spellbook of the Eldritch Initiate has gone from being:

+5Int +5Cha +10HP +20Cha +5vs Poison +5vs Disease

To a:

1 Hand Blunt Weapon

7 Damage 31 Delay and NO STATS

It is now a useless piece of junk Smiley: mad

I fact I was so upset I forgot to take a screenshot
RE: I Want my Spellbook Back
# Oct 23 2005 at 12:14 PM Rating: Excellent
Nearly Good News

The Spellbook of the Eldritch Initiate has been modified again!

It is now:

Slot:Primary Secondary
+3Dex +3Int +3HP +10Mana +5vs Magic +5vs Poison +5vs Disease
Recommend Level of 10
Wt: 1.0 Size: Medium
Race: GNM

Not as good as it use to be. But at least I don't have to hit things with it!
Item Change??

Galorin FUBAR ?
# Nov 16 2004 at 2:14 AM Rating: Default
Hi Folks > My guy on Firiona Vie server is a ( now 23 ) Gnome Enchanter. He has done all the Eldritch noob armor except the final task. He got pages 2, 3 and 4 the first time he killed their holders no prob. He has been killing Galorin regularly since level 14 trying to get Page 1. He has killed Galorin over 20 times now and no page 1, just a rusty 2HS every time.

Did they change this quest ? Is it different on FV than on the other servers ? Why have I killed this little fart 20 times with no drop ? Am I doing something wrong ? Do I have to talk to him first ? Any info appreciated :-)

>> Have also been killing Berinsan since reading Personality Disorder post, no help :-( <<

Personality Disorder?

Re-pop finally happened... But... There seems to be a mix-up of personalities here. Berinsan is popping in Galorin's spot, with Galorin's face but no Page 1. Huh?! When I look up Berinsan on this web site, the picture looks like an old-man Gnome. BUT... the Berinsan I've been killing has the face of Galorin pictured above. Anyone know what's going on?
Slow Re-pop!

Goodness! Been camping these guys all night. Fearonoliop and 4 of his buddies were up when I cam to kill 'em. Killed all 5 with ease (19th Mage) but was missing Galorin. Some Gnome with a "B" name was in his place. Been waiting for the repop ever since and it's been close to an hour. Anyone know when the respawn is?
Great Item

MY chanter still using this at lvl 50 the 5 charisma make me keeping this with the +5int and 20mana
The Book
# Nov 13 2002 at 1:33 PM Rating: Default
This is an Awesome help to a new caster. Its as good as the book my 40 mage is using and totaly worth doing the quest.
If you dont have a higher char or know a higher char then just yell to the zone if you see high levels on, you'd be surprised how much help you can get from them. The quicker you get this item the better. These akanon newb armor quests are a lot easier than the elf ones but not as easy as the dorf quests, mainly because 99% of the items can be bought for them. I made a full set of armor for my dorf cleric in 4 hours with the help of my 40 druid, awesome.

Getting your robe and book
# Jun 21 2002 at 5:34 PM Rating: Default
I just finished getting both. Didn't take long. A note to another post as to rooting one and pulling back, if they do not con green or light blue to you this will not work - trust me a died a horrible death a few times. Once they are green/light blue cons go for it !!! The robe and the book are great stat boosters, especially for those that can't or won't tweak.

Just got this today, very easy, if you have a higher level alt, I suggest this be the first thing to do, just kill the mobs that drop the pieces, log on gnome and loot em. Got this book at level 1, and I must say, very nice for a newb quest.
Help where are these!
# Jun 04 2002 at 2:59 PM Rating: Default
Im preparing to do the quests and im not sure where some items are brownie leg, brownie brain, diseased bone marrow, harpy wings, and russet oxide! Please Help! 6th level wizzy E'ci
RE: Help where are these!
# Jul 02 2002 at 6:55 AM Rating: Default
The stuff you need can be found over by the minotaur mines in steamfont. The brownies wander through there and there are earth elementals and steam elementals that drop the russet every now and them.
RE: Help where are these!
# Jul 24 2002 at 4:20 PM Rating: Default
You might want to hold onto some Iron Oxide as well. Had a high-level PC pay 500pp for ONE Iron Oxide. They couldn't meet me at the bank, but it was worth the run to the Minos Caves!
I have found the Young Ebon Drakes wndering from the LFay entrance to back by the windmills. The Diseased Bone Marrow drops from the Brittle Skeletons. Nasty buggers they are!

Good Luck on your hunts!

Eldritch Initiate Final task Book
# May 30 2002 at 7:08 PM Rating: Default
Do this first!! The book is the best thing of all the caster quests.
Just go to the very Southeast Corner.All the guys are there and take a higher level friend to help. They dont agro so you can kill them one at a time and they all drop the pages and the staff for the robe quest everytime.
You can leave with all the stuff for the book . After you get the book you can look cool while you do the other Quests.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 27 2002 at 3:46 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) When are the High elves going to get a quest like this? i do not want to make a gnome, they are short and ugly. I wish at least High Elves could use this item, but then i guess it wouldnt be unique. Verant, i am glad you are doing this, but please give High Elves newbie armor and a newbie book & weapon quest, it would help out alot =) my newbie wizard would like some nice newbie stuff =)...and do not leave out the clerics! a few cleric newb quests would be excelent

The last part of the quest is easy. You give the 4 pages to Xalirilan Zarinokosalio. He gives you the book, some experience, and the following faction hits...
+ Eldritch Collective
+ Gem Choppers
+ King Akanon
- Dark Reflection
- The Dead

Log on with the gnome you want to get the pages..
Camp near the building by the area...

Bring on your higher character (27 druid had no problem wiping there bums) Slaughter the crowd. (Or as many as you want)

Sign on your gnome and loot the corpses..

wala you now have a nice book to use
no drop?
# May 17 2002 at 7:44 PM Rating: Default
Does any1 know if the pages and items are no drop. I got a low lvl gnome and i want to do this quest but i cant. I really want to get my lvl31 druid here to nuke them all.
RE: no drop?
# May 19 2002 at 1:59 AM Rating: Good
All of the pages are no-drop.
Very easy quest
# May 16 2002 at 6:58 PM Rating: Default
This quest is a very easy one, Although I did it as a 17 Mage with no probs, I could totally see a grp of 10-12s taking this no prob, and everyone would benefit from it. As for the book, it is awesome, I was totally shocked when I got it. Shewt, I remember when people drooled over Black Tomes w/ silver runes! (3int, 20mana) I can see myself keepin this on my lil nome till I get an orante runed sheild to replace my ubah stein o death (not a twinkied char). Good job Verant, kudos.
