|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This quest was a one-time-per-server event. It is still available for progression servers when OoW is unlocked. Upon completion of the Galeth Veredeth escort to the Plane of Growth, Galeth seems to have taken up residence in Iceclad. |
This quest was a lead in to the Save Firiona Vie quest, another one-time-per-server event.
Find Fergus Stonetosser in the Butcherblock Mountains (location?).
Fergus Stonetosser says 'It was her, I swear it! I know I saw fair Firiona herself, here at the docks! I can hardly believe it!'
You say, 'Hail, Fergus Stonetosser'
Fergus Stonetosser says 'Greetings. How can I be of service?'
You say, 'You saw Firiona Vie?'
Fergus Stonetosser says 'Ah! I did see her but a few days ago. In fact, I think I may have annoyed her. You see, I think she was trying to go unseen but I recognized her at once. Hers is the most famous visage in the land, after all. She gave me her [crest] and told me that she was merely heading to the Ocean of Tears for some kiola nut. What royalty does is no business of mine!'
You say, 'What crest?'
Fergus Stonetosser says 'I was going to keep the crest for the memory you see, but it seems your business is rather important. Perhaps you should have it, might loosen folks' tongues. Hey, maybe you should speak to the merchant there. I believe only one person sells that nut out there, perhaps they may have picked up on something.'
Head to the Ocean of Tears to Sister Island. See Cleaonae Kalen:
You say, 'Hail, Cleaonae Kalen'
Cleonae Kalen says 'Welcome to the island of the Sisterhood of Erollisi.'
You say, 'You saw Fironia Vie?'
Cleonae Kalen says 'Well met. The princess did stop by here, but I believe she was in a hurry. She kept looking over her shoulder, but she was alone. She only took one nut and got right back on the boat to Freeport. A bit rare, that. Most people who come out here stock up if you get my drift. I'm not sure how useful that information is to you. She did seem rather tired and sad. Perhaps you should check some inns.'
Travel to East Freeport and see Innkeep Hunter:
You say, 'Hail, Innkeep Hunter'
Innkeep Hunter says, 'Hail _____. Business is going well these days. I have a full stock of baked goods and other items for sale. Have a look around!'
You say, 'You saw Firiona Vie?'
Innkeep Hunter says 'Ah, I see. I don't normally make a business of talking of my clients coming and goings, do you understand? Would be bad for business! Perhaps if you [stay] for the night . . ?'
You say, 'I will stay for the night'
Innkeep Hunter says 'Ah, wonderful. My rates are very affordable. For one such as yourself, i could give a room for say, 5 platinum pieces.'
Innkeep Hunter says 'I'll give you her room. Maybe she left something useful. I believe the room is unlocked, have a looksee." He winks and smiles at you.'
Receive Delicate Diary Page in the room (location?) and a Scrawled Room Receipt from Innkeep Hunter.
Head to North Felwithe and see High Guard Ivyleaf (location 0, -60):
High Guard Ivyleaf says 'If you hold any loyalty to Felwithe in your heart, please come to me on the bridge. Your assistance is needed!'
You say, 'Hail, High Guard Ivyleaf'
High Guard Ivyleaf says 'I beg your pardon, but I am extremely [preoccupied] young one.'
You say, 'Preoccupied with what?'
High Guard Ivyleaf says 'It seems the king's daughter has been kidnapped. Just last night she was safely in her room. No one saw anyone enter or leave, yet this morning, she is gone! Our very own Firiona is gone! I have been organizing our guards around the city, yet no one has yet found any clues to where she might be. The king has posted a [reward] for any who find information leading to her safe return to Felwithe.'
You say, 'What reward?'
High Guard Ivyleaf says 'Now that, my friend, depends on how useful the information is. I believe a princely gem is in store for whomever leads directly to her rescue. She took her cloak with her, and it is quite distinctive. I cannot believe that we have heard nothing from her. Please, let me know as soon as you find something.'
Hand him the Delicate Diary Page.
High Guard Ivyleaf says 'Just think, royalty staying in a mere inn. We must find the princess! Please accept this reward and keep looking!'
Receive the Ring of the Koadaï¿½Dal.
You must now go out and collect four pieces of torn fabric. Two are located in Greater Faydark (ground spawn locations -1870, -2100 and -1860, +970) and two are located in Butcherblock (ground spawn locations -890, +55 and +2230, +300). Turn them into High Guard Ivyleaf.
High Guard Ivyleaf says 'Why . . . this looks like her cloak. It appears to have been completely tattered. Please, take this to Tailor Charlene and see if she can repair it. It could be that she may even be able to tell what caused the tears to begin with.'
Receive Bundle of Fabric Pieces. Take this bundle to Charlene, found in Felwithe South (location +405, -900).
Tailor Charlene says 'Firiona's cloak! What a mess it is. It is such a terrible thing for her to have gone missing. You must be after the [reward].'
You say, 'I am after the reward'
Tailor Charlene says 'Everyone has been talking about it. I do hope that such an incentive will help in her rescue. Why, just last night I was talking to the baker about it. She even . . Oh dear! She [mentioned] something to me and I didn't even think about it until just now!'
You say, 'What had she mentioned?'
Tailor Charlene says 'I believe she said that she heard someone in her room! I can't believe we didn't realize how important that might be. Here, take this note to her and see what she can remember. I am sure she will talk if she knows that you are trying to find Firiona.'
Receive Note From Charlene.
See Serenica Greenfinger in North Felwithe (location +140, -450).
Serenica Greenfinger says 'I feel so ashamed of myself. I wish I would have said something to the guards, but it didn't even cross my mind. I was taking a bit of pastry to Guard Mystan.' The young girl blushes and then continues. 'While we were talking I thought I heard something from the princess' room. Now that I think about it, the light was already gone from the sky and I can't think of anyone who would be in her room at that hour. I could be wrong, but I thought I heard her crying. Oh, I am terrible!' She begins to cry softly and waves you away.
Receive Confidential Information. Turn this note in to High Guard Ivyleaf.
High Guard Ivyleaf says 'Well, now. This could prove very helpful indeed. Unfortunately, it doesn't exactly tell me where she is. I am grateful for you digging this up, so please take this reward. Don't give up now! If you find anything else that pertains to the princess, let me know immediately!'
Receive Drape of Firiona.
Head to the Northern Desert of Ro and see Ticket Collector Beppi at the dock to Iceclad Ocean.
Ticket Collector Beppi says 'I can't believe it's gone! That was more money than I have seen in my life. Woe is me.'
You say, 'Hail, Ticket Collector Beppi'
Ticket Collector Beppi says 'Hello there friend! Are you interested in a ticket to Iceclad? Oh, I hope so. I really don't get much business out this way anymore. It would seem the world has moved beyond such things. Or are you perhaps on a [quest]?'
You say, 'I am on a quest'
Ticket Collector Beppi says 'What sort of quest would that be? Are you a gallant knight? A lowly apprentice? Or are you perhaps trying to rescue a [princess]?'
You say, 'I am trying to resuce a princes'
Ticket Collector Beppi says 'Now that is a noble quest indeed. I used to see all sorts come through this way, high and low alike. Now business has slowed to a crawl I'm afraid. Everyone has alternate means of transportation it would seem. Although, just a few days ago I did have a strange [passenger].'
You say, 'What strange passenger?'
Ticket Collector Beppi says 'Aye, it was a woman I believe, but she was very secretive. Wouldn't tell me her name and paid in platinum coins she did! Worse for me, that was. Overpaid by half and that very night I was [robbed]!'
You say, 'Robbed?'
Ticket Collector Beppi says 'A [scoundrel] it was; these sands are full of them! She must have seen the lady paying me, or mayhaps just that it was paid in a fine silk purse. High quality it was, and not like any I have ever seen.'
You say, 'What scoundrel?'
Ticket Collector Beppi says 'Indeed, she heads a band of brigands over yonder. Never messed with me before, as I said I don't get much business nowadays. I sure could use the money. Say, you wouldn't be able to [get it back] would you?'
You say, 'I can get it back'
Ticket Collector Beppi says 'Great! Bring it by here if you do.'
Vervain spawns near the Dorn B`Dynn camp. He hits between 200 and 400. Slowable, does not summon. Approximately level 50. Loot the Purse of Platinum Pieces from the corpse and return it to Beppi.
Ticket Collector Beppi says 'Quite impressive if I do say so! Gee, would you look at that. I didn't even notice before. Isn't that the Thex crest? I'll keep my money but perhaps you should take that with you.'
Beppi will give you a Torn Silk Purse with which you need to head back to North Felwithe. Give it to High Guard Ivyleaf.
High Guard Ivyleaf says 'Indeed, that is the princess' purse. She has several, but they are all in the same style. At the port to Iceclad did you say? I will inform the king at once. We need to start sending some scouts to Iceclad at once!'
Receive Pristine Mask of Truth.
Travel to Iceclad Ocean and see Adisson Stubblechin (location?).
Adisson Stubblechin says 'Yarrr. Shiver me timbers, it's as cold as sin out here today! That fine lady could've offered me a pint, that she could.'
You say, 'Hail, Adisson Stubblechin'
Adisson Stubblechin says 'Shiver me buckles and swash me timbers. What are ye wantin? Talkin ta you is cuttin valuable minutes outta me [yellin] time. What do ye think, yer [royalty] or somethin'?'
You say, 'What yellin time?'
Adisson Stubblechin says 'I be the first mate so me job is yellin and pointin. That's what I'm good at so that's what I do.'
You say, 'Royalty?'
Adisson Stubblechin says 'The other night, I thought I saw one, a princess that is. Well, I'm not sure twas. Me pirate bones could have sworn I saw fair [Firiona] traipsing across the snow just over there! Of course, I blame the rum.'
You say, 'You saw Firiona?'
Adisson Stubblechin says 'Ah, well now the details are a bit fuzzy you see. Don't get much to eat out here outside of fish and the rare trade with passerby like you. What we don't outright steal, of course. What I wouldn't give for some of me mum's [hot oatmeal] here and there.'
You say, 'Hot oatmeal?'
Adisson Stubblechin says 'Me mum makes the best honey oatmeal you ever had, by gods! Course I haven't seen her in many a moon now. Say, if you [bring] me some I just might be able to remember a bit more.'
You say, 'I will bring you some'
Adisson Stubblechin says 'Ah bless ye child! I don't quite think she will believe ye saw me. Take this with you to help her rememberin'. Her name be Celine, of Ak'Anon.'
Receive a doll, Adisson's Baby Trinket.
Head to the Steamfont Mountains and see Celine (location?), and give her the doll.
Celine says, 'Talked to Adisson did you? I can hardly believe it. That good for nothing hasn't been home in years! I bought this for him when he was just a wee tyke. Why did he send you?'
You say, 'He wanted some hot oatmeal'
Celine grins. "I haven't made that in ages! I would be happy to make some for him, but I am afraid I am out of honey oats. Would you be a dear and [pick some up] for me?
You say, 'I will pick some up'
Celine says 'Here is my order then. Talk to Bartle in Rivervale and he should be able to fill it right up.'
Receive Order for Honey Oats.
Travel to Rivervale and see Bartle Barnick.
You say, 'Hail, Bartle Barnick'
Bartle Barnick says 'Good day _____! If you are a new Druid of the Storm Reapers I have promised Hibbs that I would assist in getting you outfitted for ventures beyond Rivervale but you must bring me a note from Reebo as proof that he sent you. There are many dangers outside of the shire so often leather clothing and a weapon become necessities for a traveling druid.'
Hand him the letter from Celine.
Bartle Barnick says 'An order from Miss Celine? I haven't seen her lovely face in quite awhile now. Do send her my best.'
Receive Honey Oats with which you need to return to Celine in Steamfont.
Celine says 'Ahhh, so fresh! Bartle always did have the best. Here is your oatmeal dear, best hurry back to Adisson.'
Receive Hot Oatmeal. Return to Iceclad Ocean and give Adisson the oatmeal.
Adisson Stubblechin says 'Ahh, that's the stuff. I should make a point to head inland more often.' Adisson belches before continuing. 'Now now, what was it I be promisin' ya? Oh yes . . the other night. Well, I had a wee bit too much rum and was doing my necessary over there behind that tree. Then I saw her. As I live and breathe it could have been no other but fair Firiona herself. She looked a bit rough, as though she'd traveled quite aways. I saw her heading over towards the tower there.' Hanging his head, he says 'I saw [something else], too . .'
You say, 'You saw something else?'
Adisson Stubblechin says 'Well, she seemed alone you see. Then I saw these . . . things outside the tower. They struggled and she went inside. I ran. I didn't tell anyone either, just holed up with some rum and went to sleep. I reckon Thex would have my head for that. Don't be tellin' him, ya hear? I can buy a bit of [loyalty].'
You say, 'What loyalty?'
Adisson Stubblechin says 'Arr, I'm not entirely without my spoils. Take this and tell not a soul!'
Receive an Adissonï¿½s Gem of Cowardice. Take this and head back to Felwithe.
High Guard Ivyleaf says 'Cowardly pirates! If we had this information at once, things might not be so far behind. Thank you for your help, here maybe you should keep this. Guards! To me!'
Receive the same gem back, only this time it has some nice stats.
Head to the The Iceclad Ocean and see a Tunarean Scout (location?.
A Tunarean scout says 'Be quiet, blast it! Don't let those in the tower hear you!'
You say, 'Hail, a Tunarean scout'
a Tunarean scout says 'Quiet, you! I heard you a mile away, and there are [ears] about you'd best not alert.'
You say, 'What ears?'
a Tunarean scout says 'Something very important is going to happen here soon. Shh! Sir [Galeth] himself has gone to seek a blessing.'
You say, 'Galeth?'
a Tunarean scout says 'Why, Sir Galeth! He is the bodyguard of fair Firiona. He set out this morning to restock at Thurgadin before completing his religious rites in preparation for [battle].'
You say, 'What battle?'
a Tunarean scout says 'Yes, I believe we will be sieging the tower soon. I am afraid I can give no more information than that seeing as how you are not in our regiment, the king would have my head. Are you loyal to the [king]?'
You say, 'I am loyal to the king'
a Tunarean scout says 'Good for you. In these tumultuous times one never knows who deserves to be trusted. Why don't you prove your [loyalty] to our king here and now?'
You say, 'I will prove my loyalty'
a Tunarean scout says 'There have been some scouts lurking about from within the tower. If you take care of one of them and bring me their teeth as evidence, I may be able to send you on a mission of honor, so to speak.'
This will spawn a Tower Scout near the Tower of Frozen Shadow (level?). Kill him, loot his tooth, and return it to the Tunarean Scout, who will then despawn and respawn. You can repeat this step as many times as your raid needs.
a Tunarean scout says 'Well done. Perhaps your loyalty lies with Felwithe after all. You see, I am a bit [worried] about Sir Galeth personally.'
You say, 'Why are you worried?'
a Tunarean scout says 'Well, shortly after he departed one of our lookouts thought they saw something strange following him. Unfortunately, we had our hands full with these scouts. Sir Galeth is well able to take care of himself, but I fear should we lose him before the battle the tides may be turned against us. I wish I could go [protect] him myself.'
You say, 'Protect him?'
a Tunarean scout says 'Honestly, I could have gone with him. The problem is not my duties here but the king, and do not repeat that. He does not think too highly of Sir Galeth as of late, and I fear to be grouped with him may diminish my standing in his eyes. He is a good man however, and I worry for him. Would you be up for the [task]?'
You say, 'I am up to the task'
a Tunarean scout says 'Wonderful. Seek him in Thurgadin and lend him your protection. I would suggest that you make haste, for he shall not be there long. I am sure that fair Firiona herself would appreciate the gesture.'
Head to the Thurgadin Exchange and see Galeth Veredeth.
You say, 'Hail, Galeth Veredeth'
Galeth Veredeth says 'I am afraid that I have not much time to chat, young one. There are important matters that weigh heavy upon my heart. I must hurry to the Plane of Growth in search of forgiveness, for I fear that I have gravely wronged those that I hold most dear, my beloved Firiona and Tunare herself. I fear that I cannot enter battle with this guilt spread through my soul, without this forgiveness this blade may as well pierce my heart where I stand. Come if you wish, but please give me silence within the plane.'
From this point, do not use /say to speak. Group, guild, and raid chat is OK, but Galeth wants SILENCE. He will now start walking towards the Thurgadin entrance. You'll need to escort him from the city to the Great Divide, through the Eastern Wastes, Kael Drakkel, the Wakening Land, and finally to the Plane of Growth. Various mobs will spawn in his path and attack. Be sure to loot the shadowed ambushers. Various items drop from the spawned mobs.
Raid members must zone into the Plane of Growth regardless of faction status. If not in the zone, they will not receive any reward. Once in the Plane of Growth, Galeth will lead the raid to Tunare's tree where he will meet the Avatar of Growth. It is not advisable to bring KOS people here. Have them hide out in a safer part of the zone.
Avatar of Growth says 'I see you have returned to our fair plane, Galeth, wayward child of Growth. What brings you back to this grove after so many seasons?'
Galeth Veredeth says 'I seek the Mother's aid to find my way to Firiona and other matters. I wish to speak to her alone and without prying minds and ears. I have much to say before I begin my quest.'
Avatar of Growth says 'Indeed, I do believe I know what you seek. Tunare may not hear you. I am urged to tell you that she cannot. It has been forbidden among the gods. While you are special to us, I do not expect that it will make a whit of difference.'
Galeth Veredeth says 'Then I will search my heart and spirit to find the voice to reach her. There are things I must tell her that cannot wait. I must confess and beg her forgiveness. I must do this.'
Avatar of Growth says 'You may speak to her through me, Galeth. I am Growth itself and entwined fully with the Mother, Tunare. I shall hear you should you wish to speak.'
Avatar of Growth says 'Very well, child of Growth. Speak.'
Galeth Veredeth says 'Blessed Mother, I have caused so much heartache. I lost the woman I loved because I did not have the will and honor strong enough to see past my heart. She died because of the strain of bringing a child of immortal and mortal essence into the world -- my child.'
Galeth Veredeth says 'Now, I have lost my daughter a second time. I feel I can endure no more and my work is not done. I still strive to aid my child in striking a balance in this world -- a task you charged her with.'
Galeth Veredeth says 'I beg you, merciful Tunare, help me. Give me your blessing to aid me in finding your chosen and my child.'
Galeth feels a warm rush of air blow the hair off of his face. He turns his head and a smile begins to lighten his tortured heart.
The Avatar of Growth whinnies as the sign that Galeth has been forgiven and heard by Tunare rushes on the wind, though she could not speak it herself.
Galeth Veredeth says 'Thank you, oh Mother. You have my love and allegiance both. I shall never forget my life here as one of the very children of Growth. I shall not rest until I bring Firiona to safety.'
Galeth mounts the steed, Tunare's gift to him, and sets off to find his daughter.
Galeth Veredeth says 'I greatly appreciate your help. My heart grows light with hope for her safety. Please accept this with my utmost gratitude.'
Each person in the raid will receive a class-specific reward:
Pendant of the Fearless Guardian (Priests)
Girdle of the Fearless Guardian (Hybrids)
Cloak of the Fearless Guardian (Melee)
Staff of the Fearless Guardian (Casters)
Take your raid to the Tower of Frozen Shadow. Raid members will receive various tells from Firiona Vie:
Firiona Vie tells you, 'Is someone there? I could sense your presence, faintly, when you breached the door of the Tower. Take extra care in this cursed place. Tserrina and her minions draw upon my strength and grow ever more bold.'
Firiona Vie tells you, 'Has Tunare turned her back on me? It is . . . so cold. Please, help me. Don't let this be my end.'
Firiona Vie tells you, 'Tarry no longer, adventurer. The more you delay, the more we are all placed in great peril.'
Firiona Vie tells you, 'Please listen, the inhabitants of this tower have grown progressively stronger, as I have grown weaker. They have managed to seal off the portals which connect the various floors. Destroy them to unseal the portals and open the way ahead.'
