Find Gillamina Garstobidokis near the zone-in in Splitpaw.

You say, 'Hail, Gillamina Garstobidokis'

Gillamina Garstobidokis says 'Greetings to you, fellow adventurer. Gillamina Garstobidokis, master mage at your service!' Gillamina bows. 'Beware, should you wish to venture here. In case you didn't know, the lair of Splitpaw has been overrun by fierce elemental creatures.' Gillamina looks down at the dead gnoll near her feet. 'Poor creatures. I am not a fan of the gnolls by any means, but it is still sad to see them all [slaughtered] in this manner.'

you say, 'Slaughtered?'

Gillamina Garstobidokis says 'Yes, the gnolls that once laired here have been destroyed by the elementals it seems. I am not quite sure what happened. These elementals intrigue me so. But I suppose you would like to know what I am [doing here]?'

You say, 'What are you doing here?'

Gillamina Garstobidokis says 'Good question! I have come here looking for a set of unique orbs that contain the essence of the various elementals that have invaded the lair. If you can find four of these orbs, one from a fire elemental, one from an air elemental, one from an earth elemental, and one from a water elemental, I will gladly repay you for your time. I wish to study these orbs and have not had much luck finding any unfortunately.'

The orbs in question drop from named mobs:

Earthmaster Grundag - loc +874,-131 (some roamers path to his spawn and face him before pathing back to their main route)

Blazemaster Arnab - loc +1220, +183 (spawns in same room opposite of Rockbeast Kloorg)

Windlord Brizoris - loc +1075,-48 (spawns out in front in heavy roamer pathing by Breeze Master spawn hallway)

Tidemaster Aquinius - +735, +206 (spawns on ledge up out of the water)

Upon turn in of all four elemental orbs:

Gillamina Garstobidokis says 'Remarkable! I cannot wait to study these! Here is your reward as promised! Safe Travels.'

A fun little quest, in a zone that is fun to learn the ins and outs of(also often good exp in the right level range).
The aug. was introduced in what I would call the term a transition period. Where augs were getting scattered all over slots and slot numbers were proliferating and changing in new expansions. 8's were eventually to become what many would call today standard/regular raid augs (and 7's group augs).
heh - Type 8

Yup - it's a Type 8 aug reward for a soloable / groupable obtained aug in a non-raid zone.

Someone check the dev's skull casings for grey matter plz.

Just for posterity, when this zone was revamped to infected paw this was pretty much a raid level zone as it was on par with the Elemental Planes.

I wish I had known you didn't have the turn in dialogue I would have copied it down =( You're not missing much. It's just something like: you made her happy, she never thought she would see them all, she will study them, here's your promised reward. Very short, nothing that looks like it leads further.
In addition to the Aug. you get exp., but it seemed to be tiny.
The Orbs dropped everytime for me and that's just what each annouced named droped - 1 orb of their own kind. I suspect it's that way everytime.

The modern adventurer. Give me the easy way out and I won't get off my lazy butt, and then the nerve to whine about it. You're an embarassment.
The zone is small and the named emote to annouce themsleves when they are up. They spawn a relatively short distance from each other within the zone. So it might become obvious now why there isn't much else needed and those who did it knew it, but the poor ignorant lazy little Ferdinands instead of showing a little curiosity and enjoyment in the hunt need it spoon feed to their fat gullets.
We have: dialogues in brackets, on screen maps with labels, compasses, stalking probes, tracking, aa, spell and clickie eyes. Why did anyone think this game was great the first year or two. And not expect to have "bunny rabbits on their bib" now now now! Broadcasting expletives in their shear agony of being slighted by others.

Mob locations: check each name individually for location data. I double checked and they are accurate. I hope this helps.
Orbs are not the same as globes

The named listed above drop single orbs that are used for this quest (4 in all). The globes dropped by trash mobs are not used for this quest. They are merchant fodder. The main difference: the orbs are No-Drop, the globes are tradable. Hope this clears up some confusion.
# Mar 25 2007 at 8:35 AM Rating: Decent
You cannot do this quest at 59, I'm assuming Gillamina will not accept the orbs until 65.
Group mission or single person?

Do you have to collect a set of orbs for each person in the group or does the whole group get the reward upon turnin?
Named Spawns
# Jan 09 2007 at 3:14 AM Rating: Decent
The named mobs will spawn on what is about a 1 hour rotation, 1 every 15ish minutes. They spawn after killing a non-named elemental of the same sort.
Ex. Your group kills A fire elemental raider... upon its death Blazemaster Arnab shouts, "Who dares to destroy tje denizens of flame? You shall feel my fiery wrath!" This process is the same with all 4 types of elementals. Proceed to turn in all 4 globes for a pretty nice aug thats fairly easy to get with a good group.

Having just done this quest I can say the named's are **not** on a 1hr timer. It is at least 10hr and possibly up to 24hr. I killed Earthmaster Grundag over 8hrs ago and he has yet to re-pop. Also the Tidemaster was not up then (I had a tracker in zone as well as visiting his spawn loc). I was the only player in the zone.

No Drop orbs, not fodder globes is what's required.
Orb Droppers

The nameds that drop these each seem to be at a set place, with a set timer, with no placeholder. I did not time spawns, seemed to be an hourish.
Air Elemental Orb
# Dec 09 2006 at 10:42 PM Rating: Decent
Air Elemental Orb is dropped from Windlord Brizoris.

Feyr the lost, Bristlebane.
Did the quest..
# Aug 16 2006 at 4:50 PM Rating: Decent
the 4 mobs Blazemaster Arnab, Earthmaster Grundag, Windlord _____(forgot name) and Tidemaster ______(forgot mob also)

they each spawn in 4 diff locations that are very hard to get will need a full grp. to spawn them you simply kill random mobs(what i did) and i guess each mob has a chance to spawn the name...(a fire ele, water ele, air ele, and earth ele can spawn the respective name)

My suggestion is....get a full will need it, unless u have a shaman and a 15khp tank...but will need some dps.

how spawn Elemental guards
# Nov 06 2005 at 3:08 AM Rating: Decent
keep clear zone mobs till see meeeage then.

Elemental guards will depop so need fast find where's the spawn spot, better with tracker.

Fiery Elemental Orb:drop from "Blazemaster Arnab"

Earthen Elemental Orb:drop from "Earthmaster Grundag"

collect 4 orb then gave "Gillamina Garstobidokis"for turn <Elemental Stone>

this's all i memory

Named Mob

Dropps off named mobs. They announce themelses zonewide when they pop.

Blazemaster Arnab shouts, "Who dares to destroy tje denizens of flame? You shall feel my fiery wrath!"
Globes or Orbs
# Feb 08 2005 at 2:51 PM Rating: Decent
You need to find four elemental orbs -- one of: Air, Water, Earth, and Fire.

Drop information needed.
Turn-in dialogue needed.

Turning in these four globes results in an Elemental Stone.

Is it Globes or Orbs i found a bunch of Globes at the front. If it Orbs off names this quest sucks.
