PAINEEL

Find Korzan Virimove in Paineel in the courtyard at the bottom of building that the elevator is in, across the way from the LDoN NPC.

You say, 'Hail, Korzan Virimove'

Korzan Virimove says 'Hello, _____. If you'll excuse me, I'm trying to study these [inscriptions] and you are blocking my light."

You say, 'What inscriptions?'

Korzan Virimove says 'These inscriptions are from a stone tablet that was found in the bottom of the Hole. They detail a forgotten methodology for making Erudite armor. These patterns were created by our ancestors before our race was divided. It staggers my mind to think what we Erudites could have lost such a legacy. These armor [designs] are unlike anything I've ever seen before."

You say, 'What designs?'

Korzan Virimove says 'Yes, it's very difficult to explain without the actual armor patterns to look at. Would you like a copy of these ancestral armor patterns? I can create a pattern [book] for you, provided you can bring me the necessary ingredients. I may also have some additional armor [patterns] provided you are willing to help me with my research."

You say, 'What book?'

Korzan Virimove says 'Very well. I will need a belt pouch for the cover, a bamboo wakizashi bo for the spine, a kobold finger bone for the clasp, and a bathide wristband to grind down and make a salve which will protect and preserve the finished product. I have heard these items can be found in the Warrens. Return with them and the pattern book shall be yours.'

Quest Items to get your Ancestral Book:
Belt Pouch (bought and dropped off random low level mobs)
Bathide Wristband (dropped in The Warrens)
Bamboo Wakizashi Bo (dropped in The Warrens)
Kobold Finger Bones (dropped in The Warrens)

In Erudin:

Gorion Telld`Mare says 'Excellent work ______. Here are the armor patterns worn by our ancestors. May they serve you well. It will take me some time to decipher the entirety of these patterns. Return to me later and we'll talk of what more can be gleaned from these artifacts.'

You receive Ancestral Erudite Armor.

You say, 'What patterns?'

Korzan Virimove says 'The meanings of the more advanced inscriptions continue to elude me. I've long ago exhausted this city's vast libraries. Now, I require a field agent to seek out new information and artifacts. Would you be interested in leading expeditions to [Kerra Isle], the [Stonebrunt], [Siren's Grotto], or the newly discovered [valley] beyond lavastorm mountains? If you are able to revover more information for me, I can further my studies and reward you with more armor patterns drafted by our anscestors. What say you?'

When I try to get the task for the first book I am asked to kill 20 adult elephants in SK and 10 Ton Warriors, problem is that in 2 hours in SK with a tracker I found ZERO elephants of any kind. Is this quest broken or did they move the elephants somewhere else?

The new Master Book is called Sacred Book of Erudite Culture hopefully it can get changed sooner or later in the listing above

Just did mine today and it also said only 1 medium quality cat pelt maybe this is getting confused with the 4 catman pelts you need?

Bamboo Wakizashi Bo
# Apr 30 2005 at 3:27 PM Rating: Decent
Bamboo Wakizashi Bo how rare is this thing? I have killed over 1000 greater shaman and the named for it and can not believe that it has not dropped yet. I don't think that it is a "common" drop as stated.

I have been unable to find this "good" erud city trade skill quest npc.. Every day for the last week ive went there, I can not find the little prick. I cant even use ctrl-f to find the Soul Binder "a mysterious force prevents you from finding your destination." any help?

Fyi...if you have a mysterious force preventing you from finding something, it is thru a zone port...i.e. in paineel, you try to find the soulbinder from the bank...nothing. but if you go toward the shadowknights guild hall, (arena) you can find him.

Erudin has same type things. from the castle area to the docks area. Hope this helps.

Do we (see subject) have to work on goody-goody faction to do this, or is there an NPC in Paineel for the "bad boys/girls" of Odus? >:)

To answer my own question, Yes: Korzon Virimove is the Paineel Trade Quest NPC, and is in the courtyard at the bottom of building that the elevator is in, across the way from the LDoN NPC.

The armor vendor Faratain sells armor combine pieces, and the Tailor vendor, Winnla Crestus, sells the cloth stuff, as well as the Vellum for Symbols.

The Cleric spell vendor, Erelis Verisue, sells the Blessed Water of Cazic-Thule.
