    This is a sub-task to be completed in conjunction with its grand task, "The Grand Illusion". It begins with Phara Dar in the Field of Scale.

    Upon receiving task "The Grand Illusion":

    Phara Dar says 'We shall see ______. We shall see. In order to make a convincing illusion, I will need a [ribcage], a [foot], a [hand], and finally a [skull]. Once I have all 4 pieces of this skeletal puzzle, not even Ganak himself will be able to see through your disguise.'

    You say, 'What about the ribcage?'

    Phara Dar says 'You must bring me the rib cage of an iksar. Any rib cage will do, but I would prefer something sturdy. The stronger the better!'

    You have been assigned the task 'Purify The Body'.

    Find an Iksar ribcage 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    These are frequently dropped by skeletons.

    Deliver the Iksar ribcage to Phara Dar. 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Your task 'Purify The Body' has been updated.

    Phara Dar says 'What a mess. Is this the best you could find? This is an Iksar rib cage for certain, but it's covered in flesh and sinew. It must be cleansed and purified if the illusion is to last more than a few moments. Speak with Talendor. His knowledge of fire should prove useful in cleaning the rib cage.'

    Speak to Talendor about the impure ribcage. 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Talendor is just west of Phara Dar at loc -1725, 1200.

    You say, 'Hail, Talendor'

    Talendor says 'Hello Snackmeat! What brings you to my dinner table?'

    You say, 'I am here about an impure ribcage.'

    Your task 'Purify The Body' has been updated.

    Talendor says 'My apoligies to you then, _____, for my most rude greeting. She made mention of a visitor who might need my help. Now, what is it you need help with, small one?'

    Deliver the Iksar ribcage to Talendor for purification. 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Talendor says 'Quite the mess you have here. I can't clean them well enough myself though. Only the hottest flame can purify these bones, and no mortal could ever hope to generate such fire quickly enough to not damage the underlying bones! You need planar fire to cleanse these bones! Severilous mentioned seeing Iksar alchemists experimenting with a new flame while flying near the tower to the north. Perhaps if you were to 'acquire' some of their work for me to test, I could learn more.'

    Acquire a sample of the burning liquid from the iksar alchemists. 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Sebilisian Fire is dropped by "an iksar alchemist."

    Deliver the Sebilisian Fire to Talendor. 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Talendor pours a drop of the strange liquid onto the ground and ignites it with a quick snort of flame. "Interesting concoction those lizards have come up with. It burns quite hot, though still not hot enough. Perhaps if we blended it with something... but what to [mix]?

    You say, 'Mix it with what?'

    Talendor says 'I know! Necromancers often use a rather disgusting tar to help bind their dark magic into the
    reanimated bones. I won't bore you with the makeup of this tar, but suffice to say it's gruesome stuff. Mixing the tar with sebilisian fire might just do it. Find me some of this necromantic goo.'

    Find some Viscid Tar from the undead in area. 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    This drops from various "a Sebilisian boneXXXX."

    Bring the Viscid Tar to Talendor so he may continue his work. 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Talendor combines the necromantic tar with the sebilisian fire and slops it onto the ribcage, and then attempts to ignite it with a snort of flame. Though the bones glow, they do not burn, "Not even Dragon fire can ignite the tar. Only a being of living flame can ignite the mixture and cleanse the bones, ______, but I can offer no help on where to find such a creature. They do not generally seek out the company of mortals.

    Find a fire elemental Talendor calls The Living Flame. 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Task updates at 2845, -415. This is the middle of temple found on the
    island in the north east part of the Field of Scale zone.

    Burn the ribcage in The Living Flame 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    The flame is named Calethos, The Living Flame, which spawns at 10 PM game time. It does not respond to hails and cannot be attacked. Give it the Coated Iksar Ribcage you got back from Talendor.

    As you hold out the ribcage, the Living Flame's burning hands ingite the coating in a brilliant flash of light and heat, though strangely, you are unharmed. You are left holding a pristine ribcage, purified by elemental fire.

    Give the Purified Iksar Ribcage to Phara Dar 0/1 (Field of Scale)

    Phara Dar looks over the purified ribcage and nods. From her demeanor, you get the feeling she is rather pleased with your progress.

    Phara Dar says 'This will do nicely, ______. I must say I'm rather impressed. We dragonkind hold little regard for the capabilities of other races, but you have shown this thinking may need revision.'

    I keep trying to send a correction but it doesnt seem to work. the button that is. so skeletons DO NOT DROP the ribcage. spent about 2 hrs today doing nothing but killing skels. no ribs. i gave up deciding to come back to if when rest of the mask line was done. surprisingly i immediately got a drop off iksars. then 2 more for my alts. sure enough when i looked the ribcage is not marked on alla as dropping from skels

    We actually found that the live mobs dropped the ribcage more frequently than the skellies when we did the quest.

    I confirm the same on Prexus (2009-May-31). Calethos was not up at 9p game time. He spawned at 10p game time.

    Can confirm (April 11th 2009) on Antonius Bayle that "Calethos, The Living Flame" does indeed spawns at 10PM game time, not 9PM. Note that he also despawns at 2AM game time

    Can also add that "Viscid Tar" also drops from "a Sebilisian Archer" (as also is listed if you go to the Viscid Tar item link. Just pointing out it does not only drop off "a Sebilisian bonexxxx" just to be awefully picky.

    Was able to solo this with an 85 Wizzie on Stromm. kited for ribcage, kited Alchemists for Fire. Tar was more difficult as the Bonesxxxxx are all grouped and tough to find a good place to kite except if you went to the Tharoff's Shades castle and ran back in the trees there.
    Archers outside the City Gates had the Tar also. Was able to cast snare and slow one or two, ran along the wall and was able to root all but one that I let follow me along the EAST ridge line. Finally turned and snared him and was able to kite him til he died. Medded while the rest lost the fetters and snares and returned to their respective positions. Rinse and Repeat until I found tar on the 5th one.
    The Flame Mob showed up at 2100 GAME TIME.. /time, not your time zone..found that it was easier to wait until that time and then to run through the ruins below the ridge where the Emerald Dragon's corpse lies which prompted the update and ...there he was.. no agro, no adds..hand in / get back and then run back to Phara'Dar for final hand in.

    Copied from Quest Journal:
    Find an Iksar ribcage.
    Deliver the Iksar ribcage to Phara Dar.
    Speak to Talendor about the impure ribcage.
    Deliver the Iksar ribcage to Talendor for purification.
    Acquire a sample of the burning liquid from the Iksar alchemesist.


    That's pretty much all I have so far.

    Both the Ribcage and the Viscid Tar drop off the skeletons.

    After obtaining ribcage, you must hail Talendor and say “ribcage” to get task update, then hand in the ribcage for another update. This must be done before obtaining the Sebilisian Fire.

    "an iksar alchemist" is actually located around Kurn's Tower. Not Kurn's Stronghold as stated here. They spawn in pairs next to trees surrounding the tower.
