If you are a good race the quest starts in West Freeport at the Paladin guild where you seek out Sir Artanis in the Halls of Truth at +820, -520, -125. If you are an evil race it starts in Neriak Third Gate cleric guild with Qrixat Du'voy in the cleric guild at +425, -810. The key trigger phrase for the quest-givers can be found within the EQ RPG GM Guide book.

Note that you must turn in the books in the proper order or you will get a message saying you should be careful with your valuable property.


Beginning of Quest (Good Version)

You say, 'I have received your summons.'

Sir Artanis says 'Yes ______, thank you for responding with such haste. The Knights of Marr recently captured a Teir'Dal wizard who under intense questioning revealed a variety of disturbing matters. First, he worships Solusek Ro, which is no crime, but considering the nearby temple's past associations with the Burning Dead, specifically Marnek about whom you recently delivered revelations, then his other information seems even more dire. Secondly, he has admitted that he was in Freeport attempting to contact the leaders of the Dismal Rage for he understood that they have nearly completed a phylactery, a device that holds the mortal soul of a lich. In light of this, we ask that you visit the Oracle of K'Arnon in the Ocean of Tears to learn whatever you can about the nature of these phylacteries, including the means to create one so that we better know how to destroy them. This letter will serve as proof that you come in the name of the Knights of Marr.'

Beginning of Quest (Evil Version)

You say, 'I have received your summons.'

Qrixat Du'voy says 'You have performed admirably in the past, so I shall overlook your tardiness responding to my call. One of our own has heeded the call of Solusek Ro over that of Innoruuk and is conspiring with that other traitorous cur, Opal Dark Briar. The wizard Salarz is a Teir'Dal now in the hands of the Knights of Marr in Freeport, but we have good information connecting him with the Dismal Rage and the Temple of Solusek Ro in a plot to create a phylactery. Somehow, this is connected to the news you brought from Befallen about the resurrection of Marnek. One who might know the answer is the oracle in the Ocean of Tears. Seek him out and learn what is required to create a phylactery so that we will remain one step ahead of any others. Go now and take this letter for the oracle with you!'

Meet the Oracle

At this point you receive a Letter for the Oracle. Take the letter to Oracle of K`Arnon at -20, -6730, -200 (updated revamp) in the Ocean of Tears. If you are KOS to the Oracle, you may charm him to turn in the letter. You may also raise your faction with him by completing the Book of Turmoil quest.

Oracle of K`Arnon says 'You walk a dangerous path if you seek to construct a phylactery. I can indeed assist you, but you must both pay my price of knowledge for knowledge and prove to me that you are capable of controlling the forces you might unleash. I seek six volumes of magical power and knowledge that are spread across the commonly known lands of Norrath and even beyond, in the planes. For each you bring me I shall instruct you on the next step in the process and provide you with one of the required pieces. Completing each step will require acquiring even more items. The process is time-consuming, but the power of a phylactery is such that it will benefit even a bearer who does not aspire to lichdom. When you are certain you are ready to begin, talk to my assistant, Jeyular and hand him. . . hmmm, where shall we start? I think it would be fitting to begin with a tome by the great lich himself, Miragul.'

You need to obtain a Tome of Miragul from An Ancient Construct in the Ruins of Old Paineel, a.k.a. The Hole. Give it to Assistant Jeyular, who stands next to the Oracle.

After the Tome of Miragul (Book 1)

Assistant Jeyular says 'An auspicious beginning. To reward your start, I will enlighten you with the secret of palatable mana, which is required to create a phylactery, but also has independent uses as well. Brew it like wine, but include a vial of mana as created by the ablest enchanters plus a pinch of this special sugar as well as grapes that can be grown only by the halflings of Rivervale. When you are ready to continue with the next step, return with the history of the Di'Zok and give it to me.'

You receive Sea-Foam Sugar. Now you need to obtain the History of the Di`zok from Loremaster Piza`tak in Chardok. Give the book to Jeyular.

After the History of the Di`zok (Book 2)

Assistant Jeyular says 'Excellent work. This book is not easily come by. This next step is the first of creating components for the phylactery itself, the silk insert. This is the base inside of the box and it must be made of durable stone silk to withstand the energies within a phylactery. When you are ready to continue with the next step, return the long-lost Journal of Aataltaal to me. His tomb is rumored to be in the Hills of Shade, and while I doubt this is true, rumor depends on some truths so somewhere nearby is where to discover this book.'

You receive an Insert Pattern. The Journal of Aataltaal is found in Kedge Keep off of Estrella of Gloomwater. Give the journal to Jeyular.

After the Journal of Aataltaal (Book 3)

Assistant Jeyular says 'Impressive, young one. I truly did not believe you would locate this volume. My instructions for constructing a phylactery shall continue. The third step requires the construction of the soul net -- the silken binding for inside the lid of the phylactery. This requires delicate and balanced threading that only the ablest fletchers can perform. To create this mystic mesh, you'll need the silk of a spider that itself deals with the immaterial as well as shadewood clips to attach the soul net to the lid of the phylactery. You must also use the glue I have given to you. When you are ready to continue, bring the book guarded by yet another spider, this one found in the Planes of Power.'

You receive Incorporeal Bond. The book is the Firebone Notebook off of Aramin the Spider Guardian. Give the book to Jeyular.

After the Firebone Notebook (Book 4)

Assistant Jeyular says 'My, my, you are serious about this effort, aren't you? This book is a excellent find from the Planes of Power and has earned you instructions for the fourth step in the process of creating a phylactery. A spellcaster may willingly give his soul to a phylactery to become a lich, but the process will not hold unless the phylactery can keep hold of the soul. The net snatches it, but a crucible of containment secures it. This sketch will help you get started, then you need merely follow similar, well-documented methods such as are used for a Crucible of Escape. The modifications should be obvious to one as talented as yourself. Also, the penultimate book I require is a bloody tome from Antonica.'

You receive a Crucible Sketch. The tome is the Sanguine Tome found in Cazic Thule. Give the tome to Jeyular.

After the Sanguine Tome (Book 5)

Assistant Jeyular says 'Thank you for this addition to my library. You're drawing close to the end of your quest. Only two more steps to complete and you will be glad to hear they are no more complicated than the first ones. The lids of the phylactery must be hinged and as no portion of the item can be of ordinary manufacture. You must fashion clasps of sealing. This mold will help you, but the Velium bits used must be enchanted and combined with a seemingly mundane object that yet holds great powers over the soul of an undead and weighs it down, anchoring it to this world. Undead elves especially are held here in this way. The results are then carefully filed smooth. Finally, the volume I require from you in exchange for the last information you require is the spellbook of the greatest living wizard on Velious.'

You receive a Clasp Mold. The final book is Velketor's Spellbook from Velketor himself in his eponymous Labyrinth. Give the book to Jeyular.

After Velketor's Spellbook (Book 6)

Assistant Jeyular says 'I am impressed by your efforts. The deeds are truly no less outstanding than my own when I stole into Miragul's Menagerie and stole a most unique tome and learned much of what I am passing along to you. The last step required of you will demand as much attention as all the prior travels and efforts to this point. Here is a decorated box I found in Miragul's laboratory that will form the substance of your phylactery. Once you have acquired and lacquered a precious garnet with the blood of a vampire, then apply the garnet and the five other pieces you've created to the decorated box and you'll have your prize. But remember, a precious garnet can be gained only from a god. As I find it unlikely you shall succeed in crafting a phylactery, and despite my payment in advice, allow me to thank you for your services in another [way].'

You receive a Decorated Box and a Token of Service. At this point you have all the recipes for the Phylactery which requires high tradeskills. If you don't have high tradeskills and are an int/wis caster you can continue on as follows to receive the robe or the tunic.

The Other Way

You say, 'What way?'

Assistant Jeyular says 'Look for Raotin Teawel, I believe he can be found on an island somewhere nearby where you would acquire a robe or tunic of Kael, Skyshrine or Thurgadin manufacture. Take one of those items and my token of service when you are ready and he shall share with you his newest creation, a robe or tunic of great power. If you are not satisfied with your robe or tunic, hand it to the Guardian of K'Arnon and he will exchange it for you.'

Raotin Teawel is on Aviak Island in Ocean of Tears at +1550, +4100 post-revamp. He didn't respond to hails or any sort of trigger phrase that I could think of, so I bit the bullet and handed him my Beguiler's Robe and the Token of Service from the assistant.

Raotin Teawel says 'Your promised reward.'

Int casters receive the Grand Robe of the Oracle and Wis casters receive the Grand Tunic of the Oracle. If you receive the incorrect reward (if someone has only partially completed the quest before you), you may hand in your reward for the alternate reward. The Plane of Growth Robe would not work for the quest.

Details on the tradeskills portion of the quest will be added as they become available. Assistant-given quest items appear to be returned if you fail the recipe.

Palatable Mana (Tradeskills Step 1: Brewing)

Quest item from assistant: Sea-Foam Sugar
Additional quest item: Moon-Harvested Grapes

The halfling mentioned by Assistant Jeyular after you hand in the Tome of Miragul is the "epicurean halfling," which may be found in Misty Thicket outside the wall at +885, +85. You must hail him during the daytime.

You say, 'Hail, epicurean halfling'

epicurean halfling says 'Hmmm. . . What? Oh sorry, I was snoozing. I was up throughout last night harvesting my [grapes] by the light of the moon.'

You say, 'What about your grapes?'

epicurean halfling says 'Why, my magic moon-harvested grapes, of course. I will give you some to sample if you would [help] me.'

You say, 'What help do you need?'

epicurean halfling says 'The specially-prepared soil that grows the vines for my grapes is becoming muddy again. I need more of the magical sand from the deserts of Ro to mix with my soil. Bring me that and I will give you some grapes.'

Give him Sand of Ro.

epicurean halfling says 'Thank you so much. Here are the grapes I promised you. They may not look like much, but master brewers tell me they are required for many magical wines, including some sought by the most powerful magic-workers.'

You receive Moon-Harvested Grapes. Note: you can still give him Sand of Ro at night to receive the grapes.

Experimentation has produced the following brewing recipes. Note that the sugar and grapes are NOT returned on combine.

If you give your Dark Phylactery to Assistant Jeyular:

Assistant Jeyular says 'Ah, you wish to perform your own alterations? Very well.'

You receive the original Phylactery back.

any chest?
# Jan 30 2004 at 10:58 AM Rating: Decent
I know its listed as only using the caster chest piece as a turn but has anyone tried another class chest piece? As in a Druid turning in a Rogue BP with the token?

Would be a great help if anyone knew for sure
Chest Item

I'm not clear on if you turn in the token and the chest drop from KD or where ever or if you actually have to take the kd chest item and get it made in SS or thurg or where ever and then turn it in. Anybody?

You have to have the actual armor piece from Thurgadin, KD, or Skyshrine. For example, if you farm Kael for Thurg armor drops, you can't use the "Corroded" or "Torn" or whatever drops you get in Kael. You have to take them to Thurgadin and exchange them (with the appropriate gems) for the actual armor, as linked in the main quest description. You then use that chest item for this quest.

Is it possible to give only the velketor's spellbook to obtain the token of service and then do the part of the quest with Raotin Teawel for the robe ?
RE: velketor's spellbook only

Nope. This quest uses flags, like for PoP progression. If you turn in the books out of order (such as turning in Velketor's Spellbook without first turning in the other five books), Assistant Jeyular will return the book to you, saying he hasn't asked for it yet.

Once you have turned in all six books, you can do additional turn-ins of Velketor's Spellbook to get additional Tokens of Service; the problem is that Raotin (the halfling who hands out the Robe or Tunic) apparently doesn't accept the Token without a Velious chest item in the same trade. If either is given to him alone, he'll just eat it. This means you can't MQ the quest.

If anyone has found a way to MQ this, please let us know.

Phylactery Turn-in?
# Dec 19 2003 at 4:55 PM Rating: Decent
Has anyone with the Phylactery tried to turn it in to Sir Artanis? Or the Dark Phylactery to the dark-elf quest giver, Qrixat Du`voy, in Neriak?

It would make sense to me to take the item back to the original quest giver when they ask you to make the item...

I tried to turn in my Phylactery to Sir Artanis today. He handed it back with the message "I have no need for this item Ashwith, you can have it back." The same thing happened when I tried to hand him the Token of Service and the Mana Crystals.

I did not try to give any items (either version of the phylactery, token, or mana crystals) to Qrixat Du`voy. (I'm not even certain I could dredge up enough faction to have a reasonable chance at it.)

Give up after 3 days lol. Give me a break 3 days of working on something is nothing. Take a look at the 8 prayer shawl quest this quest here is cake compaired to it. Yes some of these books could be little hard to come by but every one is buyable and with a good group of 65s you could get every single one.

Thus far, four of the five quest pieces handed to you by Assistant Jayular and used in tradeskills have been confirmed as returned on a fail. I'm still awaiting confirmation that the Sea-Foam Sugar for the brewing step is returned if you fail the combine, but I'm 90% sure this will be the case.

The other quest items you need to collect (like the precious garnet or the stone silk) are NOT returned on a fail; you have to farm them again.

Unfortunately, the items that the assistant give you are no drop, so not only do you have to turn in the books to get the items, you can't pass them off for a tradeskiller to do the combines for you. You need to do your own combines.

As of this writing, no one has found a way to get the tradeskill items from the Assistant without handing in the books first. It seems you must get all the books, both for the Robe/Tunic and for the tradeskilled Phylactery.

Thus far, Purified mana has been confirmed in making the Phylactery. None of the others have been tried to my knowledge.

Update Nov. 19, 2003: The Phylactery has also been made using Palatable Clear Mana and Palatable Distilled Mana. This suggests that you can make any of the palatable mana vials and use them. To my knowledge, this has not yet been tested with the Viscous or Cloudy mana vials.

Gnomish Greetings!

If you use the charge on the palatable mana, can you still do the final combine? It does not say expendable...but I went to too much trouble to get the Tome to try and get a second =)

Yes, you can use the charge on the mana vial, then use the zero-charge vial in the Phylactery combine. Since the mana vial is not expendable, it doesn't "poof" when you use the charge. This has been tested and confirmed working. The number of charges does not affect the combine.

The Other Way

You say, 'What way?'

Assistant Jeyular says 'Look for Raotin Teawel, I believe he can be found on an island somewhere nearby where you would acquire a robe or tunic of Kael, Skyshrine or Thurgadin manufacture. Take one of those items and my token of service when you are ready and he shall share with you his newest creation, a robe or tunic of great power. If you are not satisfied with your robe or tunic, hand it to the Guardian of K'Arnon and he will exchange it for you.'

You receive a Token of Service. Raotin Teawel is on Aviak Island in Ocean of Tears at +2190, +4240. He didn’t respond to hails or any sort of trigger phrase that I could think of, so I bit the bullet and handed him my Beguiler’s Robe and the Token of Service from the assistant.

Raotin Teawel says 'Your promised reward.'


the way im reading it, is you dont need the books for the robe... is the correct or not? there seems to be so much confusion around this quest on the servers ( im on bristlebane ) about how you need the books for the quest.... or am i just misreading it?

from what i can tell you use the books to get the recipe for some other reward... and since people keep beliving that the books are used for the robe the books have taken a 35k jump roght of the bat..

could someone clear this up for me

btw don6t mind the spelling mistakes i cant spell to save my life =))

Thanks

RE: a little clarification
# Nov 12 2003 at 3:55 PM Rating: Decent
you do have to do the book part of the quest in order to get the token of service. You then hand in the token of service AND the thurg/ss/kael tunic/BP in order to get the FT4 one. You do not have to do any tradeskills, however to get the tunic.

You do need to do the book part of the quest. IF you ask him what way without doing the quests he responds as he should, but doesn't give out a token of service.

I can confirm that you do not get the token of service, i saw the first post, and headed over to see if indeed this shortcut was possible. You need to do the books.

I did the turn in today for the druid tunic. A thurg plate BP was all that I could find being MQed, so I bought the thurg cleric BP MQ with my druid and did the turn in. When I did the turn in I got the FT4 tunic for Dru/Clr/Shm. So you do not have to turn in a chest from your own class. I would however suggest not turning in a warrior BP or a wizzy robe if you are a wisdom caster. Don't know if that would work or not, I wasn't gonna risk it.

Kindoluri did you do all the other turnins as listed before you turned in your Thurg BP? If so, how did you obtain the drop from Dartain?

Btw, thanks for the info about cross class turnins!

yes, you have to do all 6 book turn ins in order to get the token of service....I did try to say "what way?" before the turn in, but he didn't give the token till after the turn ins.

The Tome of Miragul drops from Ancient Constructs in the old city area of the Hole. I set up in the dock area where I could get around 4 PH'ers (ruined constructs) and no wandering adds. It's not a super rare drop, but it's not THAT common (took me over 6 hours to get my tome). I believe others set up in the library where there are more ruined spawns. 20 minute spawn timer on them.

At least part of this has been address in the 2003-11-05 patch. Teawel has been fixed so that he gives out the "correct robe". I suspect, however, that there will be some sort of fix for the book drop in The Hole. It would be dissapointing if it was a very rare drop in the Hole. The last thing Velios armor needs is a new time-sink :-/

So that folks know the best info is still at the pages linked by KyiriRavenwing:

and

http://mboards.eqtraders.com/upload/showthread.php?s=&threadid=11297

The big problem right now on the book side is getting the Dartain mob to spawn in The Hole. Possible bug there. Some report the tome dropping off of named mobs very rarely, but that's as yet unconfirmed by anyone posting to that board (and they've been clearing a lot of named trying).

The Enchanted Velium Bits are confirmed trivial at 222.

Edit: Follow-up:
This is a skill-restricted combine: Minimum skill to attempt is 165 (including geerlok; 158 + 5% can attempt).

I was just wonderin if this quest is MQable

The Robe or Tunic is indeed MQ'able, and has been MQ'ed at least once. The Phylactery does not appear MQ'able, as all the sub-combines require a no-drop component, and it appears that the final combine is to place all the subcombines in a box and combine them. As we have yet to complete the Phylactery, though, this remains uncertain.

UPDATE Nov. 19, 2003: With the patch at the start of the month, it appears this quest is no longer MQ'able. The few reports we have gotten of people trying to MQ say that it failed; Raotin either ate both turn-ins or gave his "Your promised reward" line without handing anything back.

The Phylactery is definitely not MQ'able, since it's a combine in a box, and all the subcombines (not to mention the box itself) are no-drop.
