|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|Anyone at least 68th level is automatically granted the flag for the Theater of Blood (and the AA port that comes with it). The information here regards the ACTUAL flag, as it was prior to the minimum level requirement introduced. On progression servers, you will need to complete the chime in order to access the AoC instance.
Arch Mage Galsin may be found in a tent near the zone-in from West Freeport, at Loc: -180, +1465.
You say, 'Hail, Arch Mage Galsin'
Arch Mage Galsin says 'Ah another visitor to this place. It's always good to see a fresh face, particularly if that person has news of use to me. Tell me ______, have you heard of the [Plane of Music]?'
You say, 'What is the Plane of Music?'
Arch Mage Galsin says 'When I arrived in this place I discovered an ancient book which contained an amazing amount of knowledge lost to Norrath over the ages. One of the more interesting sections spoke of the Plane of Music. The wonders described within that plane are almost beyond belief. I must see them for myself. The problem I'm confronted with is how exactly to enter the plane. The book has a small amount of [information] in that regard, but it's not the most heartening news.'
You say, 'What information?'
Arch Mage Galsin says 'According to the book entry to the plane could only be accomplished by sounding a certain pure tone. This tone is normally impossible for mere mortals to generate, but there were chimes created that, when struck, would sound this tone and transport the bearer to the plane. Unfortunately the book also mentions that all of the known chimes were destroyed by Sullon Zek in a fit of rage. Apparently she took offense to a light hearted song of some sort written by Ayonae Ro. After reading that I began focusing my search on in a new [direction].'
You say, 'What new direction?'
Arch Mage Galsin says 'I have spoken with others on this subject prior to your arrival. Many of them agreed to pass on any news or rumors they heard to me. Recently one of these people told me of a scrykin named Ao the Fourth Born. From what I've been told he is seeking a book written by Druzzil Ro herself. It is my hope that this book has information that might provide an alternate route into the plane. If you wish to help in my research seek out Ao and see what you can discover.'
Seek out the Spirit of Ao the Fourth Born at Loc: + 196, - 962. Follow the dialogues with him and complete the three tasks in the Skylance story arc:
...to receive a Tarnished Chime.
Give the Tarnished Chime to Spirit of Ao the Fourth Born to receive Harmonic Chime, which needs to be given to Arch Mage Galsin.
Head back to Arch Mage Galsin.
You say, 'Hail, Arch Mage Galsin'
Arch Mage Galsin says 'Is that. . . ? You found a Chime?!? Let me see it!'
Hand in the Harmonic Chime.
Arch Mage Galsin says 'Unbelievable, I was sure none of the chimes had survived Sullon's wrath. This is a fascinating artifact, I've never seen anything like it.' Galsin taps the chime with a small hammer and stares in amazement when no sound is created. 'But the chime. . . This must be the one. It can only mean there is some truth to the [whispers] I have been hearing.'
You say, 'What whispers?'
Arch Mage Galsin says 'There have been rumors amongst the residents of this plane of a terrible disaster in the Plane of Music. Some unknown force has closed the plane off from all outside influences and by all implications begun to corrupt its very nature. The failure of this chime must mean that this corruption has reached a point where the purity of this note will no longer transport you. If this is true then there must be a way of modifying the chime to account for the corruption. The idea of modifying the chime does have [complications] associated with it though.'
You say, 'What complications?'
Arch Mage Galsin says 'The material of this chime is, as far as I can tell, of divine origins. There are few forces that would be able to modify or harm it in any way. There is a possibility though. . . yes. . . the opening of the Plane of Rage must have been a message. Sullon Zek was able to destroy the chimes, so her magic must be able to affect this material. If you were able to find someone on her plane to help they may be able to modify the chime as needed. Go there and inquire about the chime with any that would speak with you. Perhaps the chime will prove to be our key to the Plane of Music after all.'
You get a Silent Harmonic Chime. Talk to Oathmir the Outcast in The Devastation.
You say, 'Can you tell me about the chime?'
Oathmir the Outcast says 'Give me this chime of yours and I shall see if I can understand what you seek.'
Give him the Silent Harmonic Charm.
Oathmir the Outcast says, 'Our people know some earth magic, and I might be able to work on this chime for you, but I must ask for your help first. I am lost, but I feel that I have a purpose here. It is difficult to explain to someone that has never been part of the cycle what it is like to be taken from it. I have lost all rage and have been left with emptiness. I no longer feel the desire to be with Her in the tower. I felt the rage leaving me slowly from the moment I was chosen as Vessel. She touched me then, instilling me with her rage, but it did not feel right to me. It was somehow tainted, impure. I could not accept it and the moment I rejected her rage all of my rage started to flow away from me. Something is very wrong with our goddess. Her rage is no longer pure, though it may be my own heart that is corrupt. Perhaps you can find out what has happened. Perhaps you can get into the tower and find out what has gone wrong.'
You get the chime back. In order to get into the tower, you need to complete the keying quests with Maelin:
Preparing Your New Skins
Become the Vessel
Now that you can enter Razorthorn, you are in a position to help Oathmir. He wishes you to complete:
Samples of Corruption.
Really, only the person who is assigned the Samples of Corruption needs to have done the Maelin tasks.
Once Samples of Corruption is complete you may hand and Oathmir your Silent Harmonic Chime.
Oathmir the Outcast takes the tiny charm in his huge hands. He spins it slightly as it dangles from his thick fingers, staring at it intently.
Oathmir the Outcast says 'Yes, I think I understand. This is tuned to a place, but that place is not as I expected, much like my experience with Her. I think I can change this, make it more receptive to unexpected versions of the original place.'
He takes the pieces of the chime individually and rolls them between thumb and forefinger. Each time he does there is a loud and visible explosion and a creaking sound. These explosions are contained within the thick calluses of the giant's finger pads. Oathmir hums throughout, a deep sound like distant earthquakes. Once he has done this with each he hands the chime back to you.
Oathmir the Outcast says 'That might work for you, though I'm afraid I had to crush the magic that was there before to make the adjustment.'
You receive a Twisted Chime (first). Head back to Galsin.
You say, 'Hail, Arch Mage Galsin'
Arch Mage Galsin says 'The chime. . . What has been done to it? Were you able to find someone to modify it for you? Let me inspect it.'
Turn in this Twisted Chime to Arch Mage Galsin
Arch Mage Galsin says 'This has indeed been modified, but what happened to the enchantment that was on it? Who did you find to do this for you? Nevermind. . . We must find a way of restoring the enchantment to this chime before it can be tested. According to my book Ayonae bestowed the knowledge of these chimes upon the royal family in the Elddar Forest. Perhaps this is the [solution] we're looking for.'
Receive: Twisted Chime (second)
You say, 'What solution?'
Arch Mage Galsin says, 'With the opening of the portal back to the time of the Takish-Hiz empire we may have access to the powers needed to enchant the chime again. If you can find one of the royal bloodline they may be able to assist us in restoring the enchantment to the chime.'
You now need to seek Tak`Valnakor in Northern Desert of Ro and perform three tasks:
The Key to the Past
The Burning Prince
Message from the Past
Return to Queen Tak`Yaliz
You say, 'What Twisted Chime?'
Queen Tak`Yaliz says 'Your assistance to my people has been of great value to me. Let me see this chime you speak of and I will see what may be done.'
Turn in Twisted Chime (second):
Queen Tak`Yaliz says 'These magics are ancient and almost beyond my memory. I have done what I could for you in this. Perhaps it will prove enough.'
Receive Twisted Harmonic Chime (no effect).
Hand this no effect item to Arch Mage Galsin back in Arcstone, and receive Twisted Harmonic Chime and an AA called "Harmonic Dissonance" that lets you teleport to the Theater of Blood (15 minute cooldown).
