Alexsa Whyte may be found at -125, -40, 145.

You say, 'Hail, Alexsa Whyte.'

Alexsa Whyte says 'Greetings traveler, my name is Alexsa and I am currently looking in to collecting samples from the strange beings that make up the Legion of Mata Muram ranks. Our initial encounters with them revealed that each one is innately resistant to certain types of weapons and weak against others. So, by order of Morden, we must gather skin samples from each race and examine it. Thanks to our tinkering sister, Vaifan, I now have a device which can readily examine samples. However, with news of our scouts missing and our resources being spread so thin, retrieving these samples are impossible for us. Since you have taken the time to listen, I am wondering if you would be willing to help?'

You say, 'Yes.'

Alexsa Whyte says 'Oh wonderful! You don't know how helpful this will be. Take this device. It is what we use to examine samples. When you defeat the Muramite, remove his tongue, place it inside of here and combine it with some distilling salts. Distilling slats can be found along the shores of Natimbi. Once you have combined the ingredients, it will give you a final sample which I will need you to return to me when you get the chance. Each time you hand a sample, I will be able to reveal to you the innate strengths and weeknesses for that race. If you are successful at recovering a sample from every different race that has come through the portal, then I will talk to Morden about giving you a reward.'

You receive Vaifan's Pocket Sampling Device. At this point, anything else said is replied to with:

Alexsa Whyte says 'There is nothing more I can tell you, please take the item you received and get some samples for me.'

The item you're looking for is actually called Distilled Salts, and is a ground spawn on the beaches of Natimbi. Some known locations are:
-660, -545
+1300, -625
+1475, -900
+957, +918 (Northern shore)
-1017, -1519 (Western shore)
+625, -1305 (Eastern Shore)
-909, -1474 (Northern shore)
+533, +665 (Eastern shore)

Map File locations:
P -662.0898, -544.1769, 215.0457, 0, 0, 240, 1, GS:_Salt
P 1298.1725, -627.1100, 208.9470, 0, 0, 240, 1, GS:_Salt
P 1473.3293, 900.2025, 204.2386, 0, 0, 240, 1, GS:_Salt

P -1399.7537, -281.1713, 307.6973, 0, 0, 240, 2, GS_Salt


You have to gather tongues from several different types of monsters from the Gates of Discord and combine them in the device with the salts to craft "A XXXX Sample," where "XXXX" is replaced by the type of creature the tongue came from. Handing these samples in to Alexsa gives you information about the strengths and weaknesses of that type of creature.

A Kyv Sample

Alexsa Whyte says 'Ah yes, the kyv. These stealthy beings are quite elusive. The fact that you were able to recover a sample from one of them is quite an accomplishment. Now, let's see . . . it appears that the kyv have no noticeable weapon weaknesses or resistances, but we do know they have the ability to deflect incoming arrows and thrown objects. It would seem that they are also resistant to poison based incantations, and quite weak to magic based spells. You're doing great, but there are more samples left to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can.'

A Mastruq Sample

Alexsa Whyte says 'Great sample! It looks like this was taken from a being with a thickened hide. This particular being is called a mastruq and seems to be quite resistant to blunt objects, but an arrow or slashing weapon would get through that hide quite easily. Because of their thick hides cold based elemental magic would be quite ineffective while the opposite would hold true for fire magic. You're doing great, but there are more samples left to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can.'

A Noc Sample

Alexsa Whyte says 'Looks like this came from the body of the race of beings called the noc. While their bony frames make them quite weak against crushing damage, their plated chests protect any major organs, reducing the effectiveness of arrows or slashing weapons. It would appear that their flesh is diseased which makes them resistant to disease based spells but their thin skin means that cold might be quite affective against them. You're doing great, but there are more samples left to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can.'

A Ratuk Sample

Alexsa Whyte says 'This looks like a sample from the brutish ra'tuk. These large beasts wield their axes adeptly and seem to have no major weaknesses save magical based spells. Because of their strange body makeup magic tends to affect them more then other spell types. You're doing great, but there are more samples left to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can.'

An Aneuk Sample

Alexsa Whyte says 'These odd-looking floating beings interest me the most. They seem to be quite adept with magic making them strong against magical incantations. You're doing great, but there are more samples left to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can.'

An Ikaav Sample

Alexsa Whyte says 'These snakelike beings are very deadly. The scales on their lower body are all but impervious to slashing weapons, but a well-placed arrow could do some serious damage. They are masters of magical energy making their defenses against such spells very good. However they do seem to be weak against elemental magic like cold. You're doing great, but there are more samples left to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can.'

An Ixt Sample

Alexsa Whyte says 'These centaur-like beings are quite bloodthirsty. They appear to be bred for fighting. Their fur covered lower half makes them very resistant to the element of cold but while that fur can protect them from one element it also makes them very vulnerable to fire. You're doing great, but there are more samples left to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can.'

An Ukun Sample

Alexsa Whyte says 'An excellent find here! It appears that this was retrieved from one of the beings called an ukun. They have frail bodies but their blood is a deadly poison. This would imply that they are probably very resistant to poison. You're doing great, but there are more samples left to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can.'

Once you've collected the eight samples:

Alexsa Whyte says 'Now that I have all of the basic samples I can add all of my research into this tome and give it to you.'

Alexsa Whyte says 'While we still need samples from both the force commander and his lieutenant, what you have given me so far warrants a reward of some kind. When you have recovered samples from both of the additional races I mentioned I will be able to reward you with something much better.'

At this point you receive Alexsa's Research Notes, a book containing the information given to you thus far.

Zun'muram Sample

Alexsa asks for the Tongue of the Zun'muram, which drops off various Zun`Murams in Ferubi, Txevu, and Tacvi.

Alexsa Whyte says 'A two-headed beast built for destruction. This creature is quite powerful, as I am sure you found out when you met it. While it does not appear to have any resistances or weaknesses, this sample should reveal some more information about its particular race. You're doing great, but there are more samples left to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can.'

Tunat'Muram Sample

You also need a Tongue of the Tunat'muram, which drops off the boss of Tacvi and all of Discord: Tunat`Muram Cuu Vauax.

Alexsa White says 'This is unbelievable, you retrieved a sample from the army's leader and you still live? You are truly a great adventurer. I must get this sample to our mages quickly. We must do some extended testing as we have not had any information on him till now. You're doing great, but there are more samples to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can.'

After you have handed in all the samples:

Alexsa Whyte says 'This is unbelievable, you retrieved a sample from the army's leader and you still live? You are truly a great adventurer. I must get this sample to our mages quickly. We must do some extended testing as we have not had any information on him till now. You have collected all the samples we need and I thank you for the assistance. I am indebted to you and with approval given by Morden himself I want you to take this, hopefully it will help you in your future adventures. Good day and good luck.'

You receive an Assistant Researcher's Symbol.

Turned in a Mastruq sample and she told me the following:

Great sample! It looks like this was taken from a being with a thickened hide. This particular being is called a mastruq and seems to be quite resistant to blunt objects, but an arrow or slashing weapon would get through that hide quite easily. Because of their thick hides cold based elemental magic would be quite ineffective while the opposite would hold true for fire magic.

Combined Kyv tongue + salts & got

"Ah,yes the Kyv. These stealthy beings are quite elusive. The fact that you were able to recover a sample from one of them is quite an accomplishment. Now, let's see...it appears that the Kyv have no noticeable weapon weaknesses or resistances, but we do know that they have the ability to deflect incoming arrows and thrown objects. It would seem that they are also resistant to poison based incantations, and quite weak to magic based spells. You're doing great, but there are more samples left to be found. Please get them to me as soon as you can"

I have an Ixt tongue (stackable) and a aneuk tongue(stackable) but salts appear to be non-existant atm? Combed the beach for several hours and see nothing. =(

Tongue seems very rare & dropped in KT from archer ~(no drop, non-stackable)
It's working

Sucessfully combined today
Ukun tongue
Ikaav tongue

with distilling salts found in Natimbi on the white beaches.

The results were - an Ukun sample, and an Ikaav sample

When I turned in the 2 samples she replied with a text indicating some of the strengths and weaknesses of the related race, and asked for more samples. I have a Noc tongue also, I'll look for more salts next patch!

Also for tongue drop info .... I gathered the 3 tongues I had from expeditions in Tipt and Vxed.
Tongues

Rumor has it the Mermaids in Natimbi also drop a tongue, its used for a quest turn in for a regen shield. Might also be a tongue for this quest. I have yet to attain one after killing about 30 of the potamed type mermaids.
Still bugged.

I've been working on this one since before it got posted.

The tongues are extremely rare drop off of any member of the race in question. Meaning any aneuk can drop an aneuk tongue, but only one in several thousand actually will.

Constantly killing in GoD has netted me one Noc tongue and one Ikaav tongue. The *known* Muramite races are Aneuk (one-eyed skull bearers), Noc (tusked catlike black guys), Ra`tuk (huge dog-men with halberds), Mastruq (big red guys), Ukun (manlike dogs), Ikaav (snake-women), Ixt (large goat-centaurs), Kyv (blind archers). I have seen a boss who did not fit any of those creatures' appearance, but it might not count as a race.

Salt spawns after patches on the beaches in Natimbi, but only in the areas where the sand is white. It does not respawn currently.

Edit: Container combine currently does not work at all. DNC on salt + Ikaav tongue.

Tried this quest today, seeing as I had a Ratuk Tongue laying around that I have been saving till i found these salts.

I have found the distilled salts in two locations in natimbi, however they only seem to show up after a patch and never seem to show up again

I grabbed one today after the patch and went to Alexsa whyte to start the quest again. Hailed her said yes and she gave me the Vaifan's pocket sampling device

I put the salt and the tongue in the box and hit combine and all three items vanished with no text to go with it at all. So I bugged it and petitioned, still waiting to hear so who knows
