This solo task begins with Tolvias the Keeper in the Convorteum. He is located in the port-in room of the fortress.

You say, 'Hail, Tolvias the Keeper'

Tolvias the Keeper says 'All hail the First Creation! I will turn a blind eye to your activities here if you promise to [help] me with something.'

You say, 'Help?'

Tolvias the Keeper says 'The statue of the First Creation below us is in dire need of repair. We cannot let it crumble away. It is an important religious artifact. [Assist] me, and I will not interfere with your business here.'

You say, 'I'll assist you'

Tolvias the Keeper says 'You have made a wise decision, stranger. Scattered throughout the halls of this fortress you should be able to find some rocks that have crumbled off of the walls. Collect some of these rocks and return them to me.'

You have been assigned the task 'Of Utmost Importance'.

Assist Tolvias the Keeper so that the statue of the First Creation can be repaired.



Deliver 6 Crumbling Stones to Tolvias the Keeper 0/6 (The Convorteum)

These are found as groundspawns throughout the fortress.

Your task 'Of Utmost Importance' has been updated.

Tolvias the Keeper says 'Now that we have some stone, we will need additional materials to create the mortar. Below us, in the lava pits greken are being bred. Defeat the grekens and return to me with their saliva. Their saliva will make an excellent mortar for the stones. The grekens' keepers won't be too happy with you destroying their pets, but the maintenance of our holy statue is my main concern at the moment.'

Deliver 1 Sample of Greken Saliva to Tolvias the Keeper 0/1 (The Convorteum)

Immature grekens are found in the lava around the base of the fortress. These drop the saliva samples.

Your task 'Of Utmost Importance' has been updated.

Tolvias the Keeper says 'Take care not to get that saliva on you. It can eat through rock. I have bundled up the materials you have gathered. Your next task is to take the supplies to Stonemason Broav, here in the Convorteum. Make haste.'

You receive Statue Repair Materials.

Deliver 1 Statue Repair Materials to Stonemason Broav 0/1 (The Convorteum)

Location: -840, 1200, 375

Location for Map File: P -1203.9199, 838.2675, 373.2673, 0, 0, 0, 1, Stonemason_Broav

Your task 'Of Utmost Importance' has been updated.

Stonemason Broav says 'You have gathered the materials needed to repair the statue? Thank you. There is just one little problem. I haven't paid my respects to the First Creation in quite some time. If I go to repair the statue without paying my respects, Elder Viklov will be none too pleased. If you could obtain a censer of purest gold, that would do. I believe you can get such a censer from Elder Viklov. He should be holding prayers down near the statue.'

Speak with Elder Viklov 0/1 (The Convorteum)

Elder Viklov roams a little bit outside the fortress area where all the autarchian mobs are, near -611, 703, -75.

Location for Map File: P -685.5522, 571.7578, -78.5045, 0, 0, 0, 1, Elder_Viklov

You say, 'Hail, Elder Viklov'

Your task 'Of Utmost Importance' has been updated.

Elder Viklov says 'Greetings. You have come regarding Broav not paying his respects to the First Creation? Yes, it has been quite some time, and quite frankly I am ready to sacrifice him to the greken. He has asked you for a censer of purest gold? Well that poses a little problem. You see, there is a thief in our midst and he has taken my censer of purest gold used for religious ceremonies. If you can track him down and kill him perhaps you can return the censer so that Broav can do what is necessary, and we get rid of a pesky thief. Do you think you can handle that? The thief's name is Donald Darkbrow and he is hiding somewhere in the fortress above. Destroy him and return my censer.'

Deliver 1 Censer of Purest Gold to Elder Viklov 0/1 (The Convorteum)

Censer of Purest Gold is dropped by Donald Darkbrow (known to spawn on the first level of the pyramid in a side room).

Location for Map File: P -919.7394, 923.2383, 250.2303, 0, 0, 0, 1, Donald_Darkbrow

Your task 'Of Utmost Importance' has been updated.

You have done well. I will take the censer to Broav so that he can pay his respects to the First Creation and then proceed with his statue repairs. Your assistance is appreciated. Please take this as payment for your help.

So far out of 14 immature greken i have only seen the sample of greken saliva twice. EDIT: I was 3 boxing this. I wanted a saliva for each character. Finally saw the third drop off of the 17th immature greken. What a pain. All fights were in the lava. Was only getting hit for a 100 dmg a tick though so it wasn't a big deal.

Access to portal Ring #2

Completion of this quest gave me access to use portal Ring #2 (the "ring finger") on The First's statue's hand. This ring ports to the hallway/ramp running between the entrance-hall room at the bottom of the pyramid, and the "creation" room floor that includes Stonemason Broav and Belsa. You land at /loc coordinates -738.00, 946.00, 316.65 (not map-file values).

(I am counting the rings from 1 to 5, starting at the left when facing the palm of the statue's hand from its arm.)

For access to rings 3,4 , 5, please see the comments under Delth's solo tasks.

Note that there is a post by Tridar, under the "Convorteum Coercion" quest, suggesting that Operation: Whizzlebang! may be needed for ring #2 access. It's possible that both that quest and this one (Of Utmost Importance) are needed.

Something strange:

I was previously unable to use ring #2 on any of the 3 characters I had flagged to be able to zone in to Convorteum. Only one of the characters had just completed "Of Utmost Importance". I was unable to use the ring just before the quest (I tested), and then was able to use it after completing the quest.

Now suddenly my two other characters are able to use ring #2, without having done Of Utmost Importance. One character was in the group at the time of the completion of Of Utmost Importance, and the other was offline on the same account as the one doing the quest. This is not a group task, but a solo task. Something fishy is going on... Perhaps the flag is not directly related to this quest after all?

If someone has experienced otherwise, please post.
