|Talk to Taminoa Bialu |
Taminoa Bialu may be found near Fezbin Fizzles at -35, +60, with whom you must have already completed the preflagging to accomplish this step of the quest.
You say, 'Hail, Taminoa Bialu'
Taminoa Bialu says 'Greetings. You must be one of the adventurers that Fezbin told me about. It is a pleasure to meet such a brave individual. Where are my manners? My name is Taminoa Bialu and I compile all the information from our scouts in the [city] area of Taelosia.'
You say, 'What city?'
Taminoa Bialu says 'Well, it appears the native inhabitants of Taelosia lived in a grand city once. This city is made up of four different areas named in their language. They are [Qinimi], [Riwwi], [Barindu], and [Ferubi]. Based off of early information, we believe each area had a specific purpose. I am still trying to decipher the native language to figure out what the names mean, but going off of visual information I can assume that Qinimi served as their court, Riwwi is where they held games, Barindu was a lush garden, and Ferubi was a central place of worship once. That is about the extent of my information as far as the intended purpose of each area. What they are now used for I can explain in further detail. Which area would you like to hear more about?'
You say, 'What is Ferubi?'
Taminoa Bialu says 'The area called Ferubi was once a Taelosian temple. Now it is a place that reeks of pain and suffering. The invading army has desecrated the temple and the slaves within endure unimaginable torture. Based on the information our scout Smith Rondo sent to me before his disappearance, the invaders use this area to craft weaponry and conduct strange experiments. Smith's ability to sneak in and out of places quickly made him the ideal choice for this job, but like most of our other scouts he eventually got caught trying to reveal a vital piece of information. We have confirmed that he is still alive and I need you to go find him and give him this. It is a special farstone attuned to his aura so only he can use it. Please make haste in your mission, but be careful. You are entering the lion's den and if you are caught, I cringe to think what will happen.'
You receive a Tuned Farstone. You are to attempt to give the stone to Smith Rondo as a means to get him home.
The Corruption of Smith Rondo
Smith Rondo may be found in Ferubi. Give him the farstone.
Smith Rondo says 'While I applaud your effort, I must decline. You see, since I was captured I have been altered by the beings known as ikaav. As a result, my aura has changed, making this farstone useless. I do not know what it is I am becoming, but I will not place the lives of the brotherhood in danger. I have decided to give in to the inevitable and serve these beings. Please tell Taminoa I am sorry, but this is for the best. And please give him this. As I slip deeper and deeper into insanity, I have lost my ability to articulate my thoughts on paper. This is one of my last written reports and I think Taminoa will find it quite interesting.'
You receive a Sealed Report. Head back to Taminoa and give him the report.
Taminoa Bialu says 'Ah. Glad to see you return and report that you found Smith. Let me see, what does it say here . . . oh my, I can't believe this. These beings are truly insane. This is a detailed account of the experiments the Muramites have been conducting on the natives and on Smith. If what is listed here is true, we must find out more about this. It says that this is one of two reports he wrote, so we must assume he still has the other one on him. It also says here that the weapon master has access to the mountain area that leads to a secret way into the temples where they conduct these experiments. Oh, poor Smith. As soon as he figured out what was going on he documented it, hoping that he could somehow get it back to us without them finding out. Hm . . . here at the bottom he gives details about the weapon master. Seems he only enters the Ferubi area to fix the weapons that his four elite guards use. Knowing this, I am sure we can trick him into appearing. You must return to Ferubi and find his elite guards and collect a different weapon from each of them, but remember the weapon has to be damaged. Sounds like this is pretty durable stuff they use, so it may take some time to accomplish this. Either way, once it is done I would suggest giving the pieces to Smith and asking him to help.'
Free Smith Rondo
You have to get four NO DROP weapons parts: Broken Sword Blade from Pxet Elite Blademaster, Jagged Spear Tip from Pxet Elite Spearmaster, Tarnished Knuckles from Pxet Elite Brawler, and Chipped Hammer Head from Pxet Elite Hammermaster.
Gather a raid force and give the four parts to Smith Rondo. This will attract the attention of Weapon Master Vtiink Vzaan himself. Kill him and his apprentices.
The Weapon Master can drop the following loot:
After defeating him, his ghost spawns and is up for a very short period, make sure to hail right after Weapon Master's death. Hail the ghost to receive a flag to bypass the first four trials in the Sewers for zone progression. If you have completed the quest up to this point (including previous subquests), you will receive Rondo's Report. Any number of reports may be received, provided the ghost is still up and the people hailing are fully flagged thus far. You can also trigger the raid if no one is currently doing the quest. If you were not in the raid when the Weapon Master was triggered, the ghost will ignore you.
You say, 'Hail, Smith`s Spectral Memory'
You feel a chill surround your body as a voice enters your mind. 'Thank you for releasing me from an eternity of suffering. Now you must help the others on this continent whose fate I fear is much worse than mine. You must seek out Apprentice Udranda in Barindu. She can help you gain access to the temples beyond the mountain passes.'
Turn in Rondo's Report to Taminoa Bialu. You have now finished the city scouting. You receive A Green Colored Gem Shard, which may be combined with A Glowing Socketed Crystal and Vaifan's Clockwork Gemcutter Tools in Vaifan's Experimental Sealer to craft one of four versions of A Green Hued Gemstone (melee, hybrid, caster, priest).
