    Soren the Sorcerer may be found north of the Academy of Arcane Sciences at 280, -1060, -112.

    You say, 'Hail, Soren the Sorcerer'

    Soren the Sorcerer says 'Greetings adventurer. You look like you're [interested in helping] out the Academy.'

    You say, 'I am interested in helping.'

    Soren the Sorcerer says 'The Academy of Arcane Science is a very volatile place due to the coalescence of all the schools magic as well as all the experimentation that we do. Recently we increased our knowledge of magic and we opened a portal to the Plane of Magic. When we opened the portal a vortex of magic created a [volatile chaotic spirit] that has formed inside the halls of the Academy.'

    You say, 'What volatile chaotic spirit?'

    Soren the Sorcerer says 'The chaotic spirit is very powerful and we need to stop him. If you are [willing to stop him] we will evacuate the Academy while you are inside.'

    You say, 'I am willing to stop him.'

    Soren the Sorcerer says 'You must be swift and be careful while you're inside. There are other forces that may wish to lay claim to the spirit in order to abuse its powers. Recover the spirits essence to return the power to the city of Freeport.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Spirited Spirit'.

    Click the door to teleport into the instanced zone Academy of Arcane Sciences.



    Confront the Chaotic Spirit 0/1 (Academy of Arcane Sciences)

    The Chaotic Spirit is KoS and dark blue at 70. He's perma-rooted in the first room inside the zone, so you must go to him to fight. It hits for a max ~557 and seems to be straight melee. At around 20%-30% health he vanishes, leaving no body.

    A vortex of magic engulfs the chaotic spirit as it splits into images of itself.

    Many more Chaotic Spirits spawn throughout the zone (some roam). They see invis, use Enchanter spells, and have a proc called Elemental Gust.

    Elemental Gust: Single Target, Magic (-500)
    1: Stun (6.00 sec/6000)
    2: Decrease Hitpoints by 800

    They also seem to have a low aggro range.

    Find the real Chaotic Spirit 0/1 (Academy of Arcane Sciences)

    The real Chaotic Spirit is located at the top of the Academy. Take the teleporter on the east side of the pool up, then follow the ramp up.

    You would do well to fight your way to the tower, as pulls over any significant distance draw several adds.


    Defeat the dervishes before they gain power 0/3 (Academy of Arcane Sciences)

    The dervishes spawn at the top with the real Chaotic Spirit, and are very difficult to split. Two are "A greater windstorm" and white cons at 70, and one is a white-con "Furious Windstorm."

    Defeat the Chaotic Spirit 0/1 (Academy of Arcane Sciences)

    Kill the yellow-to-70 Chaotic Spirit at the top. It has the same abilities as the others in the zone.

    Retrieve the essence from the spirit 0/1 (Academy of Arcane Sciences)

    Anyone can loot the Chaotic Essence (does not need to be turned in). Upon doing so:

    You have stopped the chaotic spirit inside the Academy before the dervishes could reach it. You have done a great deed for the city of Freeport.

    Your faction standing with Citizens of Freeport has been adjusted by 75.
    Your faction standing with The Freeport Militia has been adjusted by 75.
    Your faction standing with Coalition of Tradefolk has been adjusted by 75.
    Your faction standing with Knights of Truth has been adjusted by 75.
    Your faction standing with Priests of Marr has been adjusted by 75.
    Your faction standing with Dismal Rage has been adjusted by 75.
    Your faction standing with Steel Warriors has been adjusted by 75.

    Faction amounts vary based on your level.

    "A magical chest" spawns with one piece of loot:

    Entrepreneur's Chain Tunic
    Leather Entrepreneur's Tunic
    Leather Fortune Hunter Tunic
    Plate Greaves of the Avaricious
    Robe of the Avaricious
    Spirited Bo Staff of the Avaricious
    Spirited Dagger of the Avaricious

    This quest is a single mess. It bugs out 10 of 1 times. We tried to get this quest with 4 groups alternating to get the faction for the other quests/zones for the Efreeti Boots (Explorer/Evolving TBL). Too much DPS - bugged. Zoning in at once - bugged. Only a single time did this quest really work.

    You are teleported into the instanced zone Academy of Arcane Sciences.

    This is incorrect. I had to c;ick one of the doors of the academy and click it to zone.

    The essence looted in the final step -- is the final step.

    You don't have to turn it in.

    RE:

    "(Is this called "Academy of Arcane Sciences" or "Academy" in-game?)"

    When you zone in the text says "Academy of Arcane Sciences." It reads this same way on the guild roster.

    When you do a zone list of who is there, it says "freeportacademy."


    RE:

    "The Chaotic Spirit is KoS and dark blue at 70. He's perma-rooted in the first room inside the zone (/loc?), so you must go to him to fight. At around 20%-30% health he vanishes, leaving no body. (Fight info?)"

    He is right there as you zone in. n329.10 p3.88, p2.55. Light Blue con at 85.

    Never hit me over 557 and seemed to be straight melee.

    When he dies you see, "A vortex of magic engulfs the chaotic spirit as it splits into images of itself."

    Out in the zone, many many Chaotic Spirits are now all over. These are Green cons at 85. They see invis. They use greater Fetter, Elemental Gust, Madness of Ikkibi and Boltran's Agacerie. I resisted them all. Seem to have a low aggro range.


    RE:

    "Defeat the Chaotic Spirit (0/1) - Academy of Arcane Sciences

    Kill the yellow-to-70 Chaotic Spirit at the top (fight info?)."


    Straight up fight, as first one was.


    RE:

    "Retrieve the essence from the spirit (0/1) - Academy of Arcane Sciences

    Anyone can loot the essence (called what?)."


    Chaotic Essence (Magic, Lore, no Trade, Weight 0.1)

    he dosen't actually 'port' you into the instance , the zone into this task is actually the door to the arcane science building, even though it dosen't mark your compass

    if there is a respawn timer here, it is over 2 hours, there may not be any repops here

    Placate is your friend here
    Pathing is awful, clear everything 1 by 1, taking out the closest things first and leaving nothing behind.

    once you start moving up the spiral/tower , Make SURE you clear the bottom mobs out before you start moving up, theres also lots of wanderers in this zone.

    If you pull mobs downwards they are likely to fall to the bottom and train more mobs on you

    the mobs here are fully slowable by enchanter though, and they hit fairly weak. But they also when around 20% life sometimes cast an AE grav-flux which can send you flying into even more adds.
    The AE they sometimes cast at low life is called
    elemental energy blast. It will cause you to Fly in the direction which the mob is facing


    The chest at the end is called 'a magical chest' - it dropped the same Plate legs for me.

    Now if i can just figure out how to get neas levati to give me a mission, maybe i need to work on faction for citizens of freeport..
