You say, 'Hail, Jimlok Keylifter'

Jimlok Keylifter says 'Well met, traveler. Can I be of assistance to you? Can't say as I got much to do at the moment. I'm just attending to a little fishing while I wait on my friend to get back to me. Hopefully he doesn't keep me waiting for too much longer. I can only stand so much of this place.'

You say, 'What friend?'

Jimlok Keylifter says 'This is the situation. My friend Gilor Swiftfoot and I were going to try our hand at breaking into the Plane of Justice. Yeah, yeah, I'm sure you're thinking that's silly and all, but how many people do you know of that can say they've broken out of the Eternal Prison, let alone in? 'None', right? So, we were all ready to go in when I got word that something else needed re-appropriating all quick like. I told Gilor to wait until I got back, but no. He had to run off, eager as always and as patient as a gust of wind. Now, I think he's in trouble.'

You say, 'What trouble?'

Jimlok Keylifter says 'People here seem to think that he tried to make the prison break by himself. They've found another way in, so maybe he took that route. I'd like to check on him, but if he isn't in there, I'm liable to get myself in trouble. I think I'd be much better off staying here and waiting for him. If you want to go look for him, I'd be quite grateful. I doubt you have the skills to get far in there. You don't look like the burglarizing type, but I'd even be willing to give you the document that I picked up on my last job if you look for him.'

You say, 'What document?'

Jimlok Keylifter says 'Don't you worry about that unless you bring me some word of Gilor's condition. Trust me, it's a strange and mysterious document. Just the sort of thing you adventuring types love. Find Gilor and it's all yours, I give you my word.'

You say, 'I will look for him.'

Jimlok Keylifter says 'Alright, friend, you need to be on the lookout for a gnome about my height, with one bad leg. He's got a bit of a limp, but he's still a hard one to chase down. If you can't find him, be on the lookout for anything that resembles a small bottle. He's got a way with rodents; so if you see some little pest carrying a bottle of some sort, grab him! It will most likely be a message for me. Bring it back immediately. It won't be of any use to you anyway, since you can't read our code. Be quick and good luck!'

Kill A Festering Rat in the Plane of Justice to obtain a Tiny Bottle with Note. Give this to Jimlok Keylifter.

Jimlok Keylifter sighs deeply as he hands you an intricate schematic of some device. The notation on the document is written in a strange language that is completely foreign to you. 'This doesn't bode well for Gilor. He says he's found a secret tunnel and he's going to go in deeper. I guess I'll go in and find him if he doesn't return soon. Well, a deal is a deal. Here is the document that I mentioned.'

Jimlok Keylifter says 'The person that I was supposed to lift it for was a jeweler of sorts, but he mainly dealt in mechanical devices. I wasn't able to track him down to get my coin, so I don't know what you'll do with it. Maybe my cousin Tabben will give you something for it. He's got himself a little tinker's shop in the Jeral section of New Tanaan. Show him the map thingy and see what he says.'

You receive a Strange Jeweler's Schematic. Go to Tabben Bromal in the Plane of Knowledge.

You say, 'Hail, Tabben Bromal'

Tabben Bromal says 'What is it? What do you wan. . . Oh bloody underfoot, do forgive me, traveler. I'm not used to all this bickering and flittering about -- you know, the bustle of the 'living' city. The racket, the noise, and the wails of the children. Bah! I came here to escape it, not to relive it. But if I survived it once, I sure as Brell's holy bottom will do it again! In hopes of getting you all out of here as soon as possible and the peace and quiet being resurrected out of your blessed absence, I've agreed to lend some of my knowledge of the more inferior levels of tinkering to those who have an interest in this art. If you don't intend on purchasing any materials, then be off with you and leave me in peace. However, if you have coin in your pocket and you plan on spending, then do so quickly. I have more pressing things to do with my time than wait while you leisurely browse my wares.'

Give him the schematic.

Tabben Bromal takes the document from you and looks at it for a moment. 'Well, this is a beautiful looking schematic. I wonder what they are trying to make with it? Where did you get this? No wait; don't tell me. I'd rather not know. I can make some of this writing out but just barely. What I can read leads me to believe that I'd be better off not knowing.'

Tabben Bromal falls victim to his curiosity and grabs a small kit from the table behind him. 'Take this kit and look for the following parts,' he says as he scrunches his nose at the schematic again. 'We'll need a Tri-coated Metal Casing, one Size C spring, some Creeping silk strands -- whatever those are -- and some Congealed Bile-based Ooze. I'm not sure if this thing is wanting us to make a device or some sort of nasty cocktail, but that's what it's asking for... ewww!'

You receive a Small Parts Kit.

Tabben Bromal says 'Seal those things up in the container that I just gave you and bring it straight back to me. I'll wait here for you and see if I can decipher anymore of this schematic.'

Tri-Coated Metal Casing - random from spiders in PoI,
Size C Spring - random from models in PoI,
Creeping Silk Strands - from a virulent arachnid in PoN
Congealed Bile-Based Ooze - from a pile of bile in PoD
[The loot tables for the bile and arachnids used to be switched, but should now be fixed.]

Combine the four parts in the Small Parts Kit to craft a Sealed Parts Box. Give this to Tabben.

Tabben Bromal says 'Oh, you've returned! Very good, ______! Saria and I have made some real progress on the document that you brought us. Watch this and you'll see what I mean!'

Tabben Bromal quickly opens the small case and removes the parts. He takes a tiny spanner, several small bolts, and a long wire and quickly pieces together what appears to be a small clockwork talisman. He pulls a leather string through the top of it and offers it to you.

You receive a Small Clockwork Talisman.
You receive a Small Parts Container.

Tabben Bromal says 'That should work for you, but from what we gathered, there's another layer of mechanics that works to shield and envelope the existing talisman. It's going to require more parts. So take this container and let me know when you're ready to write down the names of the next set of parts.'

Has anyone tried or know if this item is rechargable? and if so, how do you recharge it?


Edited, Tue Nov 5 16:12:03 2002
RE: rechargable
# Nov 11 2002 at 9:48 AM Rating: Decent
IF it's rechargeable. You would do so by putting it in a toolbox with the porpper mana battery and hit combine.

Is Quintessence of Knowledge used each time you gate ? Or do you just need it on your person when you gate ?

you need an erudition Vine and a Taanan Ginkgo both sold in PoK from the shammy vendor , these 2 items are combined by a shammy (alchemy <trivial at 35> to create a quintessence of knowledge. that is the component needed the pieces cost about 100 pp for both :)

Ok figure out where the the gate takes you.. Made up some Quintessence of KNowledge with my shaman and handed to My beastlord who has the Necklace. Its Simple gate right to the Middle of The Plane of Knowledge.

As for the next step of quest. Stil have yet to Find 1 peice, Have a feeling pretty deep into zones. The Dense Hammered Casing I am guessing comes from Plane of Innovation. The rest I have no clue.

The 2 QoK Components are Found in the New Tannaan area of PoK (the tradeskill area). There are 3 Herb vendors in one of the buildings. Cant remeber the one that sells them but they are the 2 at the bottom of his list.

Ok I have another update on this quest. This is turning out to be well worth my time.

After collecting all items and hitting combine on box you get a Seal Box. Take that back to tabben. He will give you

Small Clockwork Tailsman
+5Str +5Stam +5Wis +5Int +25hps +25mana +5sv all
5 Charges of Tailsman Gate (20.0sec casting time)

Im not sure where the gate take you as you need a component to use it. Quintessence of Knowledge I believe any info on that item would be appreciated.

Also He then send you on another quest to make the Tailsman better. I have no Idea where to start on these, info would be appreciated on these as well.

Dense Hammerd Casing
Crystalline Carapace
Fiery Power Source

Combine those items in the box he gives you back with the tailsman and return to him.

Hope this helps you all. Will update with more info If i can find more out.

The Quintessence of Knowledge is an alchemy recipe, saw it on eq traders. http://www.eqtraders.com/secrets/recipes_PoP.htm

Hope that helps, would love to know if that's simply a normal gate as I'm working on getting my monk capable of tping wherever he wants to go on his own. Binding with that item from the Magic Pool quest in PoK and gating there with this in emergency situations would be nice.

Now all I have to do is get more RAM so I can install PoP...

The Pool of Magic quest item that you get near the end of the quest before the final turn in has an effect of Bind Sight, that lets you change your perspective to your targets one.

so you actually just see out of your targets eyes

Ah well, gotta learn more about spells somehow, or at least read more carefully... Guess it's a good thing I'm just a monk, thanks for the info =).

At least the Talisman Gate spell going to PoK will help me with that problem, not to mention soulbinders... Need to wake up before I post I guess.

Next Steps

I am currently working on this one.

Head to Plane of Justice and start killing rats. I found it easiest to pull them to the hallway just before zoneout. Eventuall you should find a Note in a Bottle.. ( somthing like like dont remember exact name). Take the bottle back to Jimlok Keylifter.

*** insert his text here from handing in bottle and say some stuff back to him ***

He gives you a Map or a Insctruction Set on Some sort of Jewlery Receipe supposidly. Which you take to his Cousin Tabben in Plane of Knowledge (he is located in the trade section of PoK up a flight of stairs on one of the buildings)

After handing this to to Tabben he says some things to the fact that its interesting and hes not sure what the recipe is for, he give you a box to fill with some items of which he can figure out from receipe. Combine then in the box and return to him.

Items are..
Tri-Coated Metal Casing (random PoI)
Size C Spring (random PoI)
Creeping Silk Strands - Cant Find this Yet think in PoD
Congealed Bile-Based Ooze (spiders PoN)

Thats all I have now hopefully can finish up this part today.
Another line

Say I will look for him

Jimlok Keylifter says 'Alright, friend, you need to be on the lookout for a gnome about my height, with one bad leg. He's got a bit of a limp, but he's still a hard one to chase down.
