This task was available in August 2011 in the lead-up to the Veil of Alaris expansion release.

It will be available in September 2014 (from Sept. 3-24) as part of "Stone Cold Summer" tasks and a mission.



NOTE: There are multiple versions of this task. Which one you get depends on your level.

This is a shared task (1-6 players) that begins with Arima Fae (click for map image), located near 890, -230 (far north-central boundary of the zone -- due north of the northernmost curve in the path).

Note: You can use Meeka Gharn in the Plane of Knowledge (next to the Main Bank at approximately 410, 465, -124) to port directly to Arima Fae.

You say, 'Hail, Meeka Gharn'

Meeka Gharn says 'Greetings adventurer! I am wondering if you could [help].'

You say, 'Help?'

Meeka Gharn says 'My associate Arima Fae is in danger. He is being sought by the leader of a guild of thieves who calls himself Ven Baga. Arima received a book from Baga thought to lead to many treasures, if it could be deciphered. This was months ago, and now Baga grows impatient and believes Arima is trying to take the treasure for himself. Arima has sent me here to find someone who can help him. He has hired mercenaries for his personal protection, but he needs someone who is capable enough to do some outside work. If you are interested, you will find him in Misty Thicket.'

You have entered The Misty Thicket.

You say, 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says 'You must have been sent by Meeka! Excellent! I have been having trouble finding the clues necessary to decipher this blasted Tome. It doesn't help that Ven Baga and his men are searching for me and making it difficult to travel. Will you [help] me?'

You say, 'I will help.'

Arima Fae says 'Excellent! I'll make sure you are handsomely rewarded for your efforts. Should we find anything, I will gladly cut you in on whatever we find. Now, to the [business] at hand.'

You say, 'Business?'

Arima Fae says 'I am certain that this Tome is related to the [statues] that have been appearing in Norrath. I will need you to track down and find these statues and see what clues you can get from them. I would go myself, but I suspect that Baga will no doubt think the same thing and be waiting for me. But you? I am sure you can handle a couple of low-rent thugs. Will you [do this] for me?'

You say, 'I will do this.'

Arima Fae says 'Your help is much appreciated! '

You have been assigned the task 'Only The Blind Will See [80+]'.

Arima is looking for information about unusual statues that have been appearing throughout Norrath. He has asked for your help in investigating them.



Speak with Graglon 0/1 (Abysmal Sea)

Arima Fae sends you to talk to Graglon in Abysmal Sea, who may be found on the the deck below the Magus to the west at -125, 260, 115.

You say, 'Hail, Graglon'

Graglon says 'Shuuure, I saw a shtatue. Real scary thing. I don't remember exshactly where, but it was in Butcherblock shhomeplace. Near the shtupid entry to their shtupid dorf city. You'll be able to find it if you look hard enough Heh, I threw a moldy mushroom I found at the shtupid thing!'



Find the statue that Graglon was talking about 0/1 (Butcherblock Mountains)

This updates in front of the Kaladim zone line.

You look up at the statue of the dwarven king over the entry to Kaladim. On it's left knee you see a green and yellow stain with a few bits of moldy mushroom sticking to it. Obviously this is the statue that Graglon was talking about, and just as obviously it is not the one you seek.



Speak with Arima Fae 0/1 (Misty Thicket)

You say 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says 'Well, that's unfortunate, but expected. I've been following hundreds of false leads. I've got another one for you. I've heard that one of the Irontoe brothers, or cousins, or whatever, has been talking about strange statues to one of the many barkeeps that they visit. I need you to go and talk to one of those barkeeps and see if you can find out which Irontoe it was and what they might have said.'



Speak with Romi 0/1 (North Karana)

This is the barkeep at the Gypsy camp in the middle of the zone.

You say 'Hail, Romi'

Romi says 'No, Irontoes don't come here. They are not comfortable in the open spaces. But there was a bandit here a while back asking about statues. He headed off to the east with his friends. That was not a group that you would want to encounter, but they did seem to have a good description of the statue they were looking for.'

Head to around /loc -645, -1030 in North Karana (this location is about due east from the gypsy camp) where you'll have an ambush of mobs.

Defeat Ambushing Thieves 0/3 (North Karana)

Ambushing thieves spawn three at a time until you've killed three of them. If you die, go back to Romi and say 'Trouble' to reset the spawning process. Upon their three deaths, you get the message:

You find a note on one of the thugs you defeated.

Give Arima the note you found 0/1 (Misty Thicket)

Arima Fae says 'Oh, I see you found some of Ven's bunch. I guess I may as well tell you what I can. You see, those thugs had an invaluable text because I think I can figure out how to read it. But to get it from them I had to tell them a small lie. I told them that the text would lead me to great treasure once I deciphered the language. Unfortunately it has taken longer than I expected to decipher the language. Not that there is any real treasure to be found, at least not for thugs like them. I wonder if we can use this to our [advantage]...'

You say 'Advantage?'

Arima Fae says 'Yes. Yes! It sounds like they've been looking for me by seeking the statues that I've been looking for. I suspect that they have people all over waiting near possible statues. If they have found one of the statues I seek then maybe we can find out where it is from them! Go find my contact in Kithicor Forest. He'll know where they think they can ambush me. Get that information from him and then go there and find the statue! I am quite brilliant, I must admit.'



Question Thimble, Arima's contact in the rogue thieves guild 0/1 (Kithicor Forest)

Thimble can be found in the merchant cabin with Darvon & Grace near the Commonlands zone line:

You say 'Hail, Thimble Thrasher'

Thimble Thrasher says 'I can't take it anymore! Everyone pressuring me to find Arima, find some stupid statues, do everything or we'll kill you! Enough already! I give up. I'll tell you where Ven thinks the statue is. Anything to get you away from me!'

Search for the mysterious statue 0/1 (Kithicor Forest)

Is this actually in Kithicor Forest? If not, where is it?... See update below, raising the new question is there two versions of this part?

On 9.24.2016 I did this quest, and the quest update said commonlands.
I found the statue at -317 2362.
Just south of Bealya Tanilsuia and the lake in commonlands.

The statue is found near -320, 2380 (be ready for another ambush). If looking at your map, this is in the south-central part of the zone in the middle of nowhere. It's about due south of the Dark Elf camp with War Priestess T`zan and Tasi V`ghera.

Defeat Ambushing Thieves 0/3 (Kithicor Forest)

Ambushing thieves spawn three at a time until you've killed three. You receive a Fractured Dragon Scale.



Talk to Arima Fae 0/1 (Misty Thicket)

You say 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says 'You are back! And found a dragon scale? Hmm... Take the scale to Loneq Vardrin in West Karana. He is a... dragonologist. He might be able to help us.



Speak with Loneq Vardrin 0/1 (West Karana)

Loneq Vardrin is in West Karana at /loc 1325, -9625 (extreme northern boundary, a touch northeast of the wizard spires).

You say, 'Hail, Loneq Vardrin'

Loneq Vardrin says 'Arima sent ya did he? What does dat man want now?'

Give the scale to Loneq 0/1 (West Karana)

Upon turn-in:

Loneq Vardrin says 'Ah... He constantly ridicules Loneq's work an' yet he sands ya ta Loneq for help? (Sigh) I am only helpin' ye 'cause dis is easy. I am quite familiar wit dis scale. It belongs to a dragon named Mianoanoc. But I am not seein' how dat will help ya much. Mianoanoc does nae like people much. But dat is Arima's problem. Now git! And I will be keepin' dis scale too!'



Talk to Arima Fae 0/1 (Misty Thicket)

You say, 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says, 'Mianoanoc? I've heard the name. He is not a very sociable dragon, from what I hear. But he must know something if he has been messing around with that statue. Last I heard he was seen around Innothule Swamp. You must find him and find out what he knows. In fact, I have a spell that can send you straight to the swamp when you are [ready]. Oh, and you can offer him a cut of the treasure if that will help get the information from him.'

You say, 'Ready!'

Arima Fae says 'Best of luck to you! Remember, offer him anything you must, but get me that information.'

You enter an instanced version of Innothule Swamp where you'll find a dragon named Mianoanoc.

Convince Mianoanoc to tell you about the statue 0/1 (Innothule Swamp)

A full group is recommended here. You'll need to DPS the dragon to 20% health to update the task.

Mianoanoc shouts 'I have watched you bumble about searching for something among the statues around Norrath. Arima is a fool! Yes, I know of Arima and his search. He believes the book he carries has something to do with the statues, and about that he is correct. It is not treasure to which it leads. That book is the history of the statues called the Blind Dreamers, why they are statues, and where they are from. Arima is unable to decipher it not because it is some code, but because it is a long forgotten language, the language of Alaris.'

Mianoanoc shouts 'I am sworn not to talk about those creatures, and I will never break that oath. I will tell you this, however. If the Blind Dreamers are here, that can only mean trouble. They seek that which they once had and no doubt they will go to any lengths to get. Count yourself warned, mortals. I faced these foes long ago. Their power was great even then. To repay you for your treatment of me I will tell you that those statues are sometimes referred to as observer stones in the book Arima holds. Knowledge is power, and if you unravel that book, the power you find will most certainly kill you.'

Talk to Arima Fae 0/1 (Misty Thicket)

You say 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says 'I am surprised that dragon told you anything! Between us, I knew the book did not lead to any treasure, but I had to tell Ven Baga something in order for him to give it to me. But after what that dragon told you, I am confident I am on the right trail. Thank you. Talk to Helagan if you are up to something a little more dangerous!'

so far this is what I have after the Hail to Graglon:

Find the statue that Graglon was talking about:
updates in front of the Kaladim zone line
"You look up at the statue of the dwarven king over the entry to Kaladim. On it's left knee you see a green and yellow stain with a few bits of moldy mushroom sticking to it. Obviously this is the statue that Graglon was talking about, and just as obviously it is not the one you seek."

Speak with Arima Fae
You say 'Hail, Arima Fae'

Arima Fae says 'Well, that's unfortunate, but expected. I've been following hundreds of false leads. I've got another one for you.

I need you to go and talk to one of those barkeeps and see if you can find out which Irontoe it was and what they might have said.'

Speak with Romi

Task updates around -645.74, -1032.51 in North Karana
Defeat Ambushing Thieves
Ambushing thieves spawn 3 at a time until you've killed 3 (if you should die just go back to Romi and say 'Trouble' to reset the spawning process). Upon the 3 thief's death you'll get the message 'You find a note on one of the thugs you defeated.'

Give Arima the note you found
Arima Fae says 'Oh, I see you found some of Ven's bunch. I guess I may as well tell you what I can. You see, those thugs had an invaluable text because I think I can figure out how to read it. But to get it from them I had to tell them a small lie. I told them that the text would lead me to great treasure once I deciphered the language.

You say 'advantage'

Arima Fae says 'Yes. Yes! It sounds like they've been looking for me by seeking the statues that I've been looking for. I suspect that they have people all over waiting near possible statues. If they have found one of the statues I seek then maybe we can find out where it is from them! Go find my contact in Kithicor Forest. He'll know where they think they can ambush me.

Question Thimble, Arima's contact in the rogue thieves guild
Thimble can be found in the merchant cabin with Darvon & Grace near the Commonlands zone line

Thimble Thrasher says 'I can't take it anymore! Everyone pressuring me to find Arima, find some stupid statues, do everything or we'll kill you! Enough already! I give up. I'll tell you where Ven thinks the statue is. Anything to get you away from me!'

Search for the mysterious statue

Defeat Ambushing Thieves
Ambushing thieves spawn 3 at a time until you've killed 3, you'll receive a Fractured Dragon Scale

You say, 'Hail, Loneq Vardrin'

You say, 'Ready'
Arima Fae says 'Best of luck to you! Remember, offer him anything you must, but get me that information.'


Convince Mianoanoc to tell you about the statue
(i HIGHLY recommend carrying a full group unless you have great weapons & armor lol) at 20% the dragon fight is over
Mianoanoc shouts 'I have watched you bumble about searching for something among the statues around Norrath. Arima is a fool! Yes, I know of Arima and his search.

Reward is Ancient Artifact, exp, and not much coinage...
