/loc of Evreth?

You say, 'Hail, Evreth Menesez'

Evreth Menesez says 'Greetings ally of the Claws of Veeshan! Allow me to introduce myself. I am Evreth Menesez of the Draconic Loyalist Fellowship, scholar and researcher of draconic arcane knowledge and practitioner of magery. I am currently researching the whereabouts of an [ancient dragon tome] that my contain lost arcane knowledge that could prove useful to the Claws of Veeshan, particularly the dragons and dragon-kin of Skyshrine.'

You say, 'What ancient dragon tome?'

Evreth Menesez says 'The dragon sorcerer, Xervolithax, according to dragon lore had penned a tome of arcane knowledge that he guarded with his life. It is told that when Xervolithax fell to the Kromzek centuries ago in the Great Divide in a great battle. The only surviving apprentice of Xervolithax that survived the fateful incident recovered the tome from the fallen dragon sorcerer and divided it into [sections], which he then hid for fear of the tome falling into the hands of the Kromzek magic-users.'

You say, 'What sections?'

Evreth Menesez says 'It is my belief from the information I have gathered thus far, that sections of the tome have been scattered into four sections that were hidden across Velious. The pages of the tome are a thick durable parchment, possibly magically preserved, and the ancient dragon script was penned in the blood of the author. Here is a binding that can be used to store the sections of the tome should you come across them in your explorations. If you find all the sections of the tome return the complete tome to me and I will reward you for your assistance with treasures from the Skyshrine coffers.'

The Tome sections drop off of:

1. A Kromzek Sorcerer (Kael Drakkal)
2. Fergul Frostsky or Gralk Dwarfkiller (Great Divide)
3. A Shadow Bone Necromancer or VhalSera (Tower of Frozen Shadow)
4. A Haunted Seachest (Cobalt Scar)


Hand-in dialogue and faction hits needed.

30 kills each of Fergul and Gralk before it dropped. I even did the harness quest in between hoping it was dropping off the spawned version from the broodmother attack but that was a negative. Dropped on my 30th Fergul kill.

Oddly enough, I got the Tome section from the named giant in GD today too, after killing him and his buddy dozens and dozens of times.

Is this quest broke? I keep killing Fergul Frostsky and Gralk Dwarfkiller and neither one of them drop the Tome. Figures if it is, this is the last one that I need to finish the quest.

I'm in the same position - killing both the named Giants and no drops. I got the other three fairly easily.

Second turn in?

Has anyone tried to turn in the Orb to see if any other item is given? The text of the script implies that there might be multiple rewards to choose from -- plus many Skyshrine quests function like that.

if doesnt stop working at 44, it works on all spells up to lvl 44, so therefor makes it usefull untill well after 44
[:confused:]
# Jan 08 2003 at 5:48 PM Rating: Default
ok this quest is doable at 45 but is a lvl 2 item (so it stops working at 44) so what is the point in doing it???

It works on all spells up to 44. It does not stop working. With +15 to AC, +10 FR, +10 CR, and +50 mana it is better then most shields for me, considering I use: Complete Heal, Celestial Healing, Greater Healing during battle; Resist Fire, Resist Magic, Resist Disease, Resist Poison, Symbol of Pinzarn, Armor of Faith, Resolution, and Blessing of Faith for pre-battle buffing (all 44th or lower). Saving the extra mana on spells like this would drastically reduce the amount of medding I would have to do. This pleases those battle hungry melee types.

I hope this helps the confusion. It is a very useful item (better get me one).

PoJ Upgrade?

Has anyone that has this tried giving it to the drake in PoJ that Awea mentioned? Perhaps this will result in an upgrade more suitable to the level this is attainable.
Are the pages No Drop?
# Dec 21 2002 at 1:12 PM Rating: Decent
I am just curious if the pages are No Drop, or if this can be MQ'd? Anyone have any info?

They are nodrop.
Yes
# Dec 21 2002 at 4:22 PM Rating: Decent
And you must combine them in the Empty tome, so yes, you have to loot them yourself.

Page drops clarified
# Dec 18 2002 at 2:26 PM Rating: Excellent
Okay, I'm compiling information reported here and from other sources. There are conflicting reports about which page drops where, but this looks like the consensus. Please post a follow-up if you have definite information that contradicts this list.

Section of a Draconic Tome (IDs as First Dragon Tome Section) - A Kromzek Sorceror, Kael Drakkel
Section of a Draconic Tome (IDs as Second Dragon Tome Section) - Gralk Dwarfkiller, Great Divide
Section of a Draconic Tome (IDs as Third Dragon Tome Section) - A Shadowbone Necromancer, floor 6b of Tower of Frozen Shadow
Section of a Draconic Tome (IDs as Fourth Dragon Tome Section) - A Haunted Seachest, Cobalt Scar

I'm hoping to pick these all up tonight. If I do, I'll post the reward.

i know for a FACT that the Third Section of the tome drops off of VhalSera the same person who drops the key to the 7th floor of ToFS.

I aquired one about 2 months ago, glad i got to loot it and glad i havent destroyed it yet =)

We got ours off of the Shadowbone Necromancer, like the other folks posting here.

I'm not saying that it doesn't drop off Vhal'Sera, but I am saying that it's much more commonly found off of the Necro, not Vhal.

Can someone please give me an idea of where evreth menesez is in skyshrine?

RE: where oh where...

From Wakening Land, go through the front gate and hang a left at the t-junction. Go upstairs and keep going up the winding staircases up, avoiding the side passage on the right that leads deeper into Skyshrine. Once at the top, hug the left wall 'til you see a door on your right. This opens into the room where you'll find Evreth and several drakes.

There's a drake in PoJ in the cells, that if you speak to him in Elder Dragon, he asks for you to retrieve his Grimoirre. Could this be it?

I have found page 4, I think, in Cobalt Scar several times. Dropped of the Wyverns and Haunted Seachest.

It appears that with these posts the question of to where to find these items is at an end:

Great Divide
Kael
Cobalt Scar
Tower of Frozen Shadow

I hope to see the reward here soon, as I am not powerful enough to seek it myself as of yet.

Good Hunting!

So far I have come across two pieces, Parts I and III. One section is found in Tower of Frozen Shadow behind Vhal`Sera. I do not remember the monster's name, but we pulled him after Vhal`Sera in order to advance up a floor. The second one came off a sorceror in Kael. I have been searching for the last two for quite awhile, but as of yet have no leads. If you do, your information would be greatly appreciated.

I found a piece in the orc fort in EW. I think it was off the oracle, but I'm not 100% sure.
RE: Section of a Draconic Tome
# Dec 17 2002 at 5:24 PM Rating: Decent
Likely, and depending on the reward, the last two sections are in single group places as well. I would think SG, Icewell, and Velketor's are the most reachable single group places after Kael and ToFS. However, for simplicity, somewhere in CC or on a wurm in GD would also be a likely source.

If the treasure is great, the extra pages could be on big uglies in WW/ToV/DN or in Kerafym's Lair requiring a raid force and great effort to obtain. Seems to me that the new quests / items in SS justify the means to getting them.

RE: Section of a Draconic Tome
# Dec 17 2002 at 5:15 PM Rating: Decent
There's another section that drops off Fergul Frostsky in the Great Divide at the Giant Fort. I've only found 2 of the pieces, the one off Fergul, and the one off the sorcerer in Kael. No idea where the 4th one drops though.
