This is the second task in a series of three, and you must have completed "The Talking Plant" prior to this. It begins with Moldren the Wise in The Steppes at location -645, 910, 93 (west-central part of the zone).

You say, 'Hail, Moldren the Wise'

Moldren the Wise says 'Finding that charm was a great discovery _____. Unfortunately it will take many more years of studying to learn how to use it unless I can find some brave adventurers to travel into Harfange to search the [great library].'

You say, 'Great library?'

Moldren the Wise says 'Those who knew the prophet have said that he used to spend months inside the library at a time. I would suspect that you would be able to find some writings about how to communicate with Wilped there. If you [accept this task] you could help uncover answers to a lot of questions about the history of these lands.'

You say, 'I accept this task.'

You have been assigned the task 'The Library'.

Moldren the Wise says 'Thank you. I wish you the best of luck.'

The mysteries surrounding the charm are preventing it from being used. The lore and knowledge of the giants who interacted more closely with Wilped may help reveal it's [sic] secrets.



Explore Valdeholm until you find two homes with bookcases 0/1 (Valdeholm)

Task updates at /loc -385, -1110 (in the area just southeast of the Lorekeeper's pit in the middle part of the zone).

Grab the Ancient Giant Book One 0/1 (Valdeholm)

It may be found at -700, -1230 (in one of the rooms south of the previous update at Left hand shelf. At the bottom.)

Grab the Ancient Giant Book Two 0/1 (Valdeholm)

It may be found at -435, -1610 (in the building just northeast of the previous book ground spawn).

Deliver the book 0/1 (The Steppes)

Deliver the book 0/1 (The Steppes)

NOTE: Make sure to turn the books in at the same time, as it may be bugged if you don't.

Upon turn-in:

With the knowledge found in the books, Moldren was able to use the power of the charm you gave him earlier. By expending the power in the charm, he believes that he has given you the ability to speak the long-dead language that the ancient plant uses.

You have been given: Portal Fragment

The task "The Destroyed Portal" follows this one.

Level 60 quest? Level 80 KOS See invis mobs!

I wish to mention some details clearly.

in short - after grabbing this quest and trying as high 60s, I'm going to be leaving it for a good while, and not progressing for many levels. Unless I get high level assistance.

Read on, for why....

1) This quest starts in the Steppes, travel north into Icefall Glacier (mobs high 60s), and then into Valdeholm (mobs low mid 70s). In the main, that journey can be done invis, I've done it.


2) I encountered level 80, KOS, see invis Animal Tender Bealon.
This was shortly after the first update, 'Explore Valdeholm...', as moved eastward in search of the books.


3) There appear to be four factions at work in Valdeholm (perhaps more?).



I would be recommending, approach with extreme caution.
If Animal Tender Bealon is up, don't progress on your own in 60s come 70s. Get help.
If he isn't up, then perhaps you will get to the books ok and hope by the time you find them, he doesn't spawn.

As this is older content, I'm not sure current (June 2020) players will be farming there and killing often.


Rooms bugged?

If you are thinking of doing this for the level 60 Hero's Journey achievements, you will need to wait a while unless you are lucky or have help. The Wraithguards in Valdeholm default to Dubious, which is ok, but the inside Citizens faction will kill you on sight unless you have done some quests to bring it up. I was able to get one book via invis and a lot of trouble(falling through the world seems common in Valdeholm) but there was a see invis named camped outside the second house.

What Vomitous has said, is very important information.

It was possible to pick up the quest in the Steppes.

It was also possible to go invisible, and head north through the Steppes, into Icefall Glacier, and then into Valdeholm.

Once inside Valdehom, the giants are broadly level 70+, lots of them, and red con to anyone in later 60s doing this quest chain.

It was possible to navigate around Valdeholm northward from the zone in (from Icefall Glacier) by a lot of giant guards and citizens, invisible without trouble so far.
That is to say, from the zone in, you can go north and over a large bridge.
Continue heading northwards a bit, and you'll be in somewhat of an open space, now go east and start to hug the wall.
Hugging it northward, then as it goes eastward a little, and turns southeast.

You will then find a door you can go through and get the first task update.
"Explore Valdeholm until you find homes with bookcases"

So far so good.

There are comments in the threads on this page, that talk of the books being in the houses near the wolf den.
Ok, that is a little bit east of where you are now, after receiving the update.

Important information.

If you continue eastward, you will likely see Animal Tender Bealon.
He is Level 80
He does see invisible

He hit me for 1.2k- 2k dmg per hit, and I was dead very quick.
There was also some wolf adds that came, and think is part of his script.
"Animal Tender Bealon whistles and a wolf comes to him"
"A warwolf sniffs the air and advances"
..in couple seconds i dead..
"Animal Tender Bealon says 'You may go to your pen now, friends, I am safe.'"

end of Important information.


You have been duely warned.

Go into the SE house by the wolf pen. The bookcase will be all the way at the back. Both books will be in this bookcase. One book is red in color, the other is kind of a tannish color. Assuming these have a spawn time so if not there, keep checking

When I did this quest I found:

One book in the house SE of the pen on the bottom shelf of the right hand bookshelf (if you face the 2 bookshleves).

The other book was in the house immeditely to the south west of the first house. It was on the bottom shelf of the LEFT hand bookshelf.

My cursor didnt light up or anything (like it does in *other games*. I just randomly clicked books till i got a response.
