You say, 'Hail, Aid Eino'

Aid Eino says 'Greetings Gnormy! I am Eino, Monk of Quellious and Aid to Councilwoman Kerasha! I spend my time as protector to the councilwoman as well as taking small jaunts to the planes to obtain items for her magic research. If you be a hearty individual with some allies you may be able to help me.'

You say, 'I will help you'

Aid Eino says 'Then meet me this night in the Plane of Nightmares. Near the waterfall of the upper plateau is a large tree. Should you see a soft glow, know that I am about. Signal to me by saying 'Quellious be my guide'. I shall emerge from my concealment.'

Wait until 10 PM game time and then zone into Plane of Nightmare. Make your way to -512, 1682. The location is south from zone in and it's on the other side of the river, slightly south of the tree that looks like it's glowing. You must be at this exact location.

Once you're at the exact location, /say Quellious be my guide.

Aid Eino steps from the shadows 'I am glad you were able to come help me, this is quite a dangerous realm! We must tread carefully if we are to find the item Kerasha desires from this vile place. Sometimes I worry her research with the magic of the land puts her in much danger. Let us be off and find that which she desires.'

You'll have to deal with any adds that roam, and at three different points, waves of mobs will spawn. The waves themselves aren't too bad. First wave was 4 Tortured Banshees. Second wave was 2 Nightstalkers. Third wave was 4 Hobgoblins. Fourth wave was about 3 Tortured Banshees and 3 Tenacious Bats. Finally, he gives you a rest for about 5-10 minutes. Then The Dreamkeeper spawns, looks like a banshee, wasn't very difficult at all.

Aid Eino says, 'The fiend shows itself! Spew your vile dreams no longer! Dispatch it!'

She drops a Strand of Nightmare. The person who the quest is for needs to loot this.

Aid Eino holds his bleeding side 'That beast was quite vicious, quickly let us make our way to the portal, I must seek the healers of tranquility to staunch this wound. Give me a moment to gather my strength.'

Escort him back to the Plane of Nightmare graveyard and hand him the strand for the earring reward, as well as the essential pre-flag of the Essences of Power quest.

Aid Eino says, 'Hand me the strand from the beast. Quellious knows what Kerasha wants with such a thing.'
Aid Eino says, 'Excellent! You and your companions have served me well, take my mark as a symbol of trust. The Council may smile more favorably upon you now. May Quellious watch over you!'
You gain party experience!

Note: be careful with detrimental AE spells or you may accidentally aggro and kill Aid Eino.

This event can be started as early as 8pm game time, but not exactly at 8pm, I had to wait a minute or so after /time showed 8pm before he would spawn.

You only get one attempt per in game day. If he dies (or presumably after success) you have to wait until the next night to trigger him again.

This does work in DZs (and respawns after each in-game day). I recommend using DZs and pre-clearing the field if you can, as he walks right through as many roamers as he can and they will slowly whittle him down.

1st wave: 4 banshees roughly level 54-55, charmable, mezzable, summon.
2nd wave: 2 nightstalkers both level 60. I was not able to get Eino to engage. When I engaged them, he walked right past me and died while I was killing them. On my next attempt, I stayed far away, they did not aggro when they spawned and I was able to harmony them... then Eino just walked right past them. They are mezzable if you decide to kill them.
3rd wave: 5 hobgoblins roughly level 55-56, charmable, mezzable, don't summon
4th wave: 4 banshees, 3 bats roughly level 55-56. Bats are charmable, banshees are not. Banshees summon.

I was able to solo to this point (level 65 bard) but the 4th wave simply overwhelmed Eino too quickly for me to get them under control. Eino cannot be mezzed, I'm not sure if you can aggro him, maybe I'll try with AE slows and see if that can keep him alive long enough

Edit: using bard trickery, I was able to pull the 4th wave away and keep them from aggro'ing on Eino, at that point I could fade them off and they corpse camped... Eino doesn't care if they're up, he'll take his 5 minute break and proceed to the next spot.

Final boss (level? conned dark blue to 65): Difficult solo, but not impossible, especially if you can charm a spider/raven/tree to use as DPS. Much easier than the shenanigans required for the 4th wave.

Unlike other escort quests you cannot buff or heal him. Memblur did not seem to work and he has next to no HP or regen. We basically mezzed all the mobs off him or taunted them off him and tried to preclear the path.

This can also be done in a DZ, where you can clear all of the mobs ahead of time, so you have just the adds that spawn with him.
Has anyone done this of late?

Quest write-up

Did this quest last night, I'll try to write it up on facts, seems to be a lot of speculation on it. :)

My group was all 65 Elemental/Time geared. Paladin, Shaman, Rogue, Magician, Druid, and Enchanter (me).

Once in Nightmare, it must be 11pm game time or later, you must be at that *exact* location, -512, 1682. It's Go south from zone in and it's on the other side of the river, slightly south of the tree that looks like it's glowing. Say 'Quellious be my guide.' (no quotes) and he'll spawn and start walking.

You'll have to deal with any adds that roam, and at three different points, waves of mobs will spawn. The waves themselves aren't too bad. First wave was 4 Tortured Banshees. Second wave was 2 Nightstalkers. Third wave was 4 Hobgoblins. Fourth wave was about 3 Tortured Banshees and 3 Tenacious Bats (don't think name is right, but they were bats). Finally, he gives you a rest for about 5-10 minutes and The Dreamkeeper spawns, looks like a banshee, wasn't very difficult at all. She drops a Strand of Nightmare. The person who the quest is for needs to loot this, then you escort him back to the Plane of Nightmare graveyard and hand him the strand for the earring reward, as well as the essential pre-flag of the Essences of Power quest.

When I say the waves weren't's not entirely true. The 3 or 4 mobs themselves would be easy, but these fight locations are near where roamers spawn. The first, third, and fourth waves were a nightmare (no pun intended). I don't know if any mobs nearby are attracted to this fight with greater aggro range, or if these were wave spawn adds and we were too busy fighting to notice or what, but we had up to 8 mobs in camp at once, usually about 6. I've got about 6k mana, and I went oom and had to Gather Mana on the first encounter, later encounters I used trans rods as often as possible.

Note - These mobs summon.

On the bright side, Aid Eino in a fight himself is no pushover. He's a monk, has insane regeneration, and during our encounter he actually tanked a spider on his own because we weren't paying attention. I have to give them credit, he's a fairly powerful npc and well balanced for this quest. After a fight he's almost instantly at 100% health. He hits for 157 or so. Another note, he can *not* be mesmerized to give your group(s) recovery time, he's immune to mezzing.

Was told it couldn't be done with 1 group, but it can, it was just difficult, though a very fun challenge. If you aren't Time geared, I'd suggest 2 groups or more, treat it as a hedge maze run with the possibility of even more adds, but with a much weaker boss.

Now I just need Coirnav to drop his Essence of Water so I can complete my quest. :)

Followed this and it was accurate for phinigel. Except Eino has little hp/regen and you can not buff him.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 05 2004 at 5:58 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Gah, nothing is ever easy is it? Why must everything require a damn group and not just hour upon hour of solo killing for rare mobs. I just got the Fire, Water, and Wind essences recently and waiting on my guild to kill rathe to hopefully get the last. I was really looking forward to plunking them all in a bowl and finally getting something good with little group work involved. Ah well, maybe I can pay a few people to help me with the ****** aid quest...
can it be solo'd?

Compare ?

Anyone Know how this event compares to the difficulty lvl of the PoNB hedge event?

Thanks ...
RE: Compare ?
# Mar 21 2004 at 11:26 AM Rating: Decent
It's of similar level to the hedge quest. Definately takes some crowd control.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 20 2003 at 10:38 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) well since this is kind of a mid-level earing i am guessing you can duo this with a good friend. Since hedge is a Flagging event its made a bit harder because of course a whole group of people are trying for planar progression...not only that but it allows you to kill terris thulle after completing i dunno i am guessing this isn't hard at all. Prolly more time consuming then anything.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 24 2003 at 10:28 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Could this possibly be the quest for the plane of time key? I seem to recall someone linking something with a name along the lines of a Globe of Dancing Flame, or something something Dancing Flame. Could there be 1 of these "thingies" from each of the elemental planes? A 4 slot container, combine the 4 "thingies", perhaps this yields the key, or part of the key for the Plane of Time.

This is required to do the Essence quest. All 4 Elemental Gods drop an Essence of _____ (fill in the Element here :) ) they are rare drops from each god. When you get all 4 if you have done this quest Enio will give you a container to combine them in then you hand that back to get one of five or six items.
RE: Time Key?
# Jul 31 2003 at 2:02 PM Rating: Default
Somehow, I don't think PoNightmare is an elemental plane, so I'd have to say this prolly isn't one of the items for that quest.

Thanks to 13 other folks on Terris Thule, I was able to finish this last night.

After getting the Tiny Gold Fist, go back and talk with Eino again. He will tell you to talk with Kerasha. Hail Councilwoman Kerasha and say, 'I will aid the Taanan', she responds, blah, blah, blah. You then say, 'What essences of power?' she responds,

"The powers that watch over the four elemental planes all gaurd their respective essence of power. You must defeat each of them in turn and place them all in this sacred bowl. Once I have the combined power of the planes I can begin the ceremony and set the foundation of the city to rights."

She gives you 'A Sacred Bowl', a four slot container.

Will post more info as I progress.

Thanks again to everyone that helped out.

Does everyone helping get the earring?
RE: loc?
# Sep 13 2004 at 7:18 PM Rating: Default
Nope, only 1 earring for one person. This is nothing but an annoyance quest to ***** over people who took the time to get the essences from the EP gods by making them do more work when they can get better loot very soon in Plane of Time having killed all the EP gods enough times to actually have gotten all 4 essences...

According to the Safehouse ( the result of this quest is:

Tiny gold fist

No drop I believe. Pretty nice trinket

do you know if it is lore also?

these are a nice all around earing and probably would be a great guild event to get people to do.

# Nov 01 2002 at 2:37 AM Rating: Decent
Go a little south of the big tree just on the other side of the top waterfall in PoN, when you head south from zone in. At night say 'Quellious be my guide', Eino will spawn and start pathing off Southward, follow him with a group (with a snarer) and keep him alive. Havn't got past that part yet since it was just me and a 61 shaman :)

I don't remember where but somone posted some info on this quest on another website. From what I remember they said once you get this guy to spawn you follow him around the PoN and kill waves of mobs the guy who posted made it though like 4 waves with one group and said that with two groups he thought he could complete the quest hope that helps
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 31 2002 at 1:34 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) How can someone rate this quest a 1 from what is here and no postings from people that have done it to go by? As for others rating the quests, where?
