Full Walkthrough

Power of the Orb

Rykas is a gnome in a yellow robe in Lake Rathetear, who may be found at approximately +950, -650.

You say, 'Hail, Rykas'

Rykas says 'Greetings ______, I am Rykas, chronicler of knowledge. I have journeyed all throughout the lands of Norrath, and I have learned many tales of adventure from people I have encountered during my travels. I have learned of legends known and unknown to most mortals. Are you in search of knowledge?'

You say, 'I am in search of knowledge.'

Rykas says 'A small task is needed if you wish to learn more. Do you wish to learn the tale of Magi'kot?'

You say, 'I wish to learn the tale of Magi'kot.'

Rykas says, 'If you seek to learn the tale of Trilith Magi'kot, your journey shall begin in the Commonlands. Search for Jahsohn Ak'sot and give him this token. He will share some of the knowledge I have bestowed upon him, and point you further down your path to Mastery. Bring me the Words of Mastery, Power of the Elements, and the Words of Magi'kot....Then you shall learn more about the power of the orb.'

You receive a Token of Mastery.

Words of Magi`kot

Now find Jahsohn Ak`sot (note slightly different spelling) in the western Commonlands, who wanders in the general vicinity of +60, +3640.

You say, 'Hail, Jahsohn Ak`sot'

Jahsohn Ak`sot says 'Greetings, ______.'

Give him the token.

Jahsohn Ak`sot says 'What is this? I cannot believe you found it! Where did you get this?'
You gain experience!!

You say, 'Rykas sent me.'

Jahsohn Ak`sot says 'I have not heard of anyone speaking that name out loud in years. Rykas once shared a tale with me, though I have lived with fear in my mind ever since. He told me afterwards that I did not have the balance I thought I had. Have you come for the Words of Magi'kot?'

You say, 'I have come for the Words of Magi'kot.'

Jahsohn Ak`sot says 'The Words of Magi'kot can only be shared with those elementalists whose minds are of balance. The Words were separated into three pieces by a high council of Magi who feared that the story would bring an end to elementalists throughout Norrath. If you feel you wish to read from the sacred Power of the Orb then an elementalist of such power should easily accomplish this task.'

You say, 'What task?'

Jahsohn Ak`sot says 'Bring me the torn pages of Magi'kot. The first section can be found in the depths of a tainted forest, warded by an angry lupine. It is also rumored that one section is found in the haunted estate of a murderer, on a many armed creature. The last may be found in the belly of an amphibian who thirsts for blood.'

You now need Torn Page(s) of Magi`kot pg. 1-3. Page 1 drops in Kithicor Forest from the level 40 Enraged Dread Wolf or dread wolf that spawns at night. Page 2 drops in the Estate of Unrest from the tentacle terrors and dark terrors found in the basement. Page 3 drops in Lower Guk from bloodthirsty ghouls and the frenzied ghoul. Give all three words to Jahsohn.

Jahsohn Ak`sot says 'Have you forgotten something, ______?'

Jahsohn Ak`sot says 'Have you forgotten something, ______?'

Jahsohn Ak`sot says 'Rykas may have been right about you, ______. Now, go find Walnan. Walnan was apprenticed to a very powerful Mage. After her apprenticeship was complete, she wished to begin teaching other beings of Norrath. Even those who knew nothing of the art! I do not believe she was successful, though. Seek her out to further your tale. Good luck in your journeys, ______!'

You receive the Words of Magi`kot.

Power of the Elements

Now find Walnan, a female high elf in purple in the Butcherblock Mountains. She wanders the path from the docks to Kaladim.

You say, 'Hail, Walnan'

Walnan says 'Hallo ______! I am Walnan, elementalist, summoner, wanderer, and sometimes teacher. Might you be a elementalist in search of the truth?'

You say, 'I am in search of the truth.'

Walnan says 'The truth is something not all people can handle or understand. If the truth of the elements is what you seek then the Power of the Elements shall reveal all. Have you come to learn of Magi'kot?'

You say, 'I have come to learn of Magi'kot.'

Walnan says 'Magi'kot was the most powerful elementalist of his age. He may have been the most powerful mortal mage of all time, such was his mastery. He wished to obtain infinite knowledge and wisdom in order to further expand the arcane art of Summoning. Do you know what became of Magi'kot?'

You say, 'No.'

Walnan says 'Only a few elementalists and followers outside our circle know what truly happened to Magi'kot. Even now, many are fearful to speak of his name. If you truly wish to continue, here is what you must do. Gather the Power of the Earth, warded by a fae creature. Then seek the Power of Fire, held by an elemental. Next you will need the Power of Wind, held by a twirling and prancing wanderer who has been corrupted. Finally, the Power of Water, held by a ravenous beast who is the minion of a fallen Sarnak. Bring them all to me, and I shall give you the Power of the Elements.'

The Power of Earth drops from A Fairy Guard in Lesser Faydark. The Power of Fire drops from blazing elementals and lava elementals in Solusek A, aka Solusek's Eye. The Power of Wind drops from A Gypsy Dancer in Mistmoore Castle, found in the ballroom of the castle. The Power of Water drops from various raveners in Kaesora. Give all four to Walnan.

Walnan says 'Wait, ______, are you not forgetting something?'

Walnan says 'Wait, ______, are you not forgetting something?'

Walnan says 'Wait, ______, are you not forgetting something?'

Walnan says 'The arcane art of Summoning is derived from the power of the elements which surround us. Continue your journey across the Ocean of Tears. In a dark fortress, you should find Akksstaf lurking about. Be wary, but tell him that you seek Magi'kot. Hurry now ______, you do not wish to miss the ship!'
You gain experience!!

You receive Power of the Elements.

Words of Mastery

The dark fortress Walnan spoke of is Najena, whose entrance is found in the Lavastorm Mountains. Akksstaff is a male dark elf in a green-brown robe who wanders Najena. He has a relatively long spawn time of anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days.

You say, 'Hail, Akksstaff'

Akksstaff says 'What do you want?! Foolish Human, I am in no mood to treat with beggars. I have half a mind to turn Jobober here loose on you! Well, don't keep me waiting, state your business or be off with you!'

You say, 'Tell me about Magi'kot.'

Akksstaff says 'Ah, that I can help you with. Magi'kot was a powerful elementalist, able to control the power of the elements which surrounded him. He was not able to fully master the elements when I was learning from him, but soon after my departure I heard rumors that he was going after the Orb of Mastery. At the time, I did not feel he was ready to harness all the elements, but Magi'kot listened to no one. He was in search of power beyond any held by a mortal. Do you wish to hear more?'

You say, 'I wish to hear more.'

Akksstaff says 'Then bring me the torn pages of Mastery, there are four pages that can be found upon the women In this keep, though have a care, Najena's followers guard her treasures carefully, and delight in punishing trespassers.'

The four pages drop randomly off various magicians, goblin magicians, Rathyl, Rathyl Incarnate (spawned after Rathyl is killed), etc., and may be found throughout Najena. Gather all four and give them to Akksstaff.

Akksstaff says 'Very well. Take these words back to that shriveled old gnome, Rykas, if you wish to complete this quest. Now leave me, ______, it sickens me to be this cordial for so long. And Jobober needs exercise. Go!'

You receive Words of Mastery.

Power of the Orb

Return to Rykas in Lake Rathetear, and give him Words of Magi`kot, Power of the Elements, and Words of Mastery.

Rykas says 'I see that you have completed the quest I laid before you. That speaks well of your dedication, yet you do not realize your journey has just begun. Study this tome.'
You gain experience!!

You receive Power of the Orb, which reads as follows:

"An elementalist's power comes from the Orb of Mastery. The Elements of Earth, Fire, Wind and Water are contained within the orb. The Master of Elements holds the Orb.

"He can be found within the Plane of Sky. No mortal has been able to contain the true power of the Orb.

"Trilith Magi'kot presented himself to the Master of Elements and the Orb of Mastery. The power of elements brought agony to his mind and body. Magi'kot was not of Balance.

"Fire burned his eyes unto blindness, Wind put his mind into a spin, Earth entered his body and aged him like the mountains, and finally, Water washed his memories of mortal life away.

"Failing his test, the Orb exacted its terrible price, and now Magi'kot is part of the Orb.

"The bearer of this tome should seek out the Master of Fire and present it to him, for there is much left to be revealed."

Element of Fire

The Master of Fire is Jennus Lyklobar, who may be found in Skyfire Mountains.

You say, 'Hail, Jennus Lyklobar'

Jennus Lyklobar says 'Hello and well met! Humans like you don't often come here.. Do you come seeking what I possess? Fire, fire, fire and fire is mine! I surround myself with fire, I bathe in fire, I consume fire, I am the Master of Fire! Hahahaha, but I digress. Have you come for the element of Fire, seeking to fall to the same fate as Trilith Magi'kot?'

You say, 'I have come for the element of Fire.'

Jennus Lyklobar says 'The Element of Fire I can provide you, but you must prove you are able to contain its power. Bring me the Torch of the Elements now kept by a doomed lord of merchants, the burning embers from a notable member of wurmkind who can be found a short journey from here and a blazing wand, which you should be familiar with. And you must surrender the tome Rykas gave you. But I think you would be happier if you stayed with me and learned more of the beauty of the one true element, FIRE! FIRE! Hahahahahahah!'

Obtain the following items: Torch of the Elements (dropped by Neh`Ashirr in City of Mist), Burning Embers (dropped by Phurzikon, Nezekezena, or Gylton, named wurms in Burning Woods), and Blazing Wand (dropped by Undertow in Kedge Keep). Give these three items along with Power of the Orb to Jennus.

Jennus Lyklobar says 'I see that you are well versed in the ways of Fire. Indeed, if you are as adept in the other, lesser elements, you may just seize the Orb of Mastery after all, and avoid Magi'kot's fate. Take this element, and guard it well, for more trials are to come, I assure you. Succeed and you shall be remembered always! Oh, and ______? Watch out for the puddles! HAHAHAHAHAHA!'
You gain experience!!

You receive Element of Fire.

Element of Earth

Seek out Tiblner Milnik in Firiona Vie. He's a male high elf in a brown robe wandering near the cliff.

You say, 'Hail, Tiblner Milnik'

Tiblner Milnik says 'Huh? What? Oh, you speak so fast, it took me a moment. I have become used to the slow and stately conversation the Earth holds, where a thought can span aeons. I am the Master of Earth, you know. Though I'm usually too humble to say this, that makes me the most powerful mortal in Norrath, as everyone knows that Earth is the only REAL Element, all else must give way before its power. Water is absorbed by it, Air is ignored by it, and Fire is contained in it. But you know all these things, I am sure. Are you interested in obtaining the Element of Earth? I know Magi'kot was, but we know what happened to him, don't we?'

You say, 'I have come for the element of earth.'

Tiblner Milnik says 'Combining the following items can bring the Element of Earth together. Obtain the Staff of Elemental Mastery: Earth, held by the minions of the Prince of Hate, The Dirt of Underfoot found on Slix something or the other, and of course, I shall need the Broom of Trilon and the Shovel of Ponz. Bring all these things, and I shall show you what a true Master of Earth can do, and gift you with the Element of Earth.'

The Staff of Elemental Mastery: Earth is an uncommon drop from one of the mini-bosses in the Plane of Hate, Magi P`Tasa. Dirt of Underfoot is a rare drop from Slixin Klex in the Burning Woods. The Broom of Trilon and Shovel of Ponz are the results of quests available through the Temple of Solusek Ro. Give all four items to Tiblner.

Tiblner Milnik says 'Take this Element and keep it with you. I wish you the best in your journey, but I must ask you to leave me now, this frantic pace you set makes me nervous.'
You gain experience!!

You receive Element of Earth.

Element of Water

Find Jinalis Andir, an erudite female in blue robes at approximately -600, -2000 in Dagnor's Cauldron.

You say, 'Hail, Jinalis Andir'

Jinalis Andir says 'Let us dispense with pleasantries, ______. I am Jinalis, as you know. I imagine you want to control the Elements. The Element of Water, which I possess, is the most powerful of the Elements. With it you can control the water which falls from the Air, erodes the Earth, and extinguishes Fire. It is a pity you do not focus on the Prime Element, but if you wish to follow that fool Magi'kot to your doom, I will not stop you. Bring me the Staff of Elemental Mastery: Water held by the last of the Kedge, the Tears of Erollisi held by a dirty and rotten officer across the Blessed Deep, and finally, the Rain of Karana, found on a mighty Giant in, where else, the Karanas.'

The Staff of Elemental Mastery: Water is a rare drop from Phinigel Autropos in Kedge Keep. Rain of Karana drops every time from Tarbul Earthstrider in Eastern Karana. He has a placeholder of "a rogue lion." Tears of Erollisi drop from Captain Rottgrime at the outpost in The Overthere. Give the three items to Jinalis.

Jinalis Andir says 'You have the control needed in order to manipulate the water which surrounds us. Take this Element and guard it well, you will need it in the times to come.'
You gain experience!!

You receive Element of Water.

Element of Wind

Find Kihun Solstin, a human male in white in the quest room below the first island in the Plane of Sky.

You say, 'Hail, Kihun Solstin'

Kihun Solstin says 'So, you have made it this far. I am Kihun Solstin, the Master of Wind. I control the unfettered Element like none other. As you should have learned, Air is the most potent of Elements. It fuels Fire, Water is comprised of it, and Earth cannot restrain it. Knowing this, do you seek the Element of Wind?'

You say, 'I seek the element of Wind.'

Kihun Solstin says 'I will test you then. In this wondrous plane of Air [editor's note: now Sky], find the Crown of Elemental Mastery, and search the world below for an Elemental Binder, and a cloak fashioned from the feathers of a Pegusus. Return them to me and I shall give you the Element of Wind.'

The Crown of Elemental Mastery is a rare drop from any mob on the seventh island in the Plane of Sky. Elemental Binders drop from Elemental Warriors in The Hole. The Pegasus Feather Cloak is a very rare drop from a rare spawn, Quillmane, found in Southern Karana. By all accounts this is the most difficult piece to get. Give the three items to Kihun.

Kihun Solstin says 'If you have obtained the other, lesser Elements, go speak with The Master of Elements, who is now waiting for you. I wish you luck. If you have not completed all the tasks set for you, let me know, and I shall let you see the Master.'
You gain experience!!

You receive Element of Wind.

Orb of Mastery

After receiving the Element of Wind, Master of Elements will spawn in the Plane of Sky. If for some reason he has despawned, you can always get him to respawn by talking to Kihun Solstin and saying, "I want to see the master."

You say, 'Hail, Master of Elements'

Master of Elements says 'I... am... the... Master... of... Elements.. Elements... Forgive... me. I am... unaccustomed.. to.. speaking.. this.. mortal... tongue. Might.. you... be... the... One?'

You say, 'I am the One'

Master of Elements says 'Trilith... Magi'kot.. knelt.. before.. the.. orb.. in.. his.. his.. last.. few.. moments... of.. mortal.. life. He... too... believed.. that.. he.. had.. the.. power.. and.. balance.. needed.. to.. grasp... control.. of.. the.. elements. He.. was.... flawed. Coming.. to... me... is.. a.. matter.. of.. no.. small.. import. Only.. only... one.. who.. is.. of.. balance.. and.. power... power.. may.. control.. the.. Orb.. of... Mastery. Give.... give.. me.. the.. Elements.. you.. have... gathered.. and.. I.. shall.. see.. if.. you.. are.. ready.. ready.. to control.. the... Elements.. of... life.. life.. life.'

Give it the Element of Fire, the Element of Earth, the Element of Water, and the Element of Wind.

Master of Elements says 'You... are.. balanced... and.. powerful.. for.. a.. mortal... ______ ..... ______ . More.. so.. than.... Magi'kot. But.... you.. are.. not.. yet.. ready.. to.. transcend.. transcend... this.. mortal.. coil. Take.. take.. seize.. this..

Everything i know so far...
# Sep 22 2000 at 2:58 PM Rating: Default
I've looked into alot of this quest so far and this is everything i know about each quest.

Earth- Earth mastery staff, shovel of ponz, broom if trilon and dirt of underfoot, the first 3 are easy but the dirt is still a mystery to me, he says it comes from "Slix something or another" so i go wandering and run into a Slixen klex...first thing i think is it must be him, tried talkin to him every which way i could think and got nothin outa him, then i killed him and he was empty, hits for 140sh and is level 50.

Water- Water mastery staff from Phin, rain of karana from a named giant in EK that hangs around the ramp i've been told, and tears of erolisi from Captain Rottgrime in overthere, all pretty easy as long as you have a few friends.

Air- Well....this one is gonna be awhile, i havn't spent much time in sky to get the crown of air from the 7th island, but ya also need a pegasus cloak which is a rather uhh fun camp, and an elemental binder which as far as i know is unfound.

Fire- Blazing wand is the only one i know here, comes from Undertow(e?) in kedge, 50 50 drop in my experience, as for the torch i heard dalnir is a good place to try that, and i dont remember what else ya need for this one.

Now for the words, They came from Enraged dread wolfs, TTs in unrest and then a bloodthirsty ghoul in guk. Turn them in in WC and go to butcherblock and talk to the mage there...

Earth Power- Faeries or Pixies from faydark, cant remember which it was as i killed both.

Fire Power- Lava elemental in SolA.

Water Power- Was told hungry Raveners, but not sure which zone.

Air Power- Someone suggested a named spawn in beholders gorge, so i'll check that out sometime tonight, i do remember seing that guy once tho when i used to hunt there.

If anyone has any more info as to where the dirt is or confirmation on names and such post it, sorry that i don't give too many names, don't keep up with the names so much as the items =). They all have big earth pets cept the earth guy, as far as i've seen...Ironicly enough the earth one walks around without a pet heh, at least both times i found 'em. Also someone suggested to try soil of the underfoot, verant has stated that the guys wont be in towns for this stuff as it would be kinda hard for a DE mage to walk into kaladim, cleric guild no less where ya need amiable faction.

You will need to complete each elemental quest to receive an Orb of Water, Orb of Earth, Orb of Air, and Orb of Fire. There is a sub quest for the tome that can be completed mostly by a solo lvl 50+ mage.

a. Staff of elemental mastery: Water from Phinigel Autropos in Kedge
b. Rain of Karana from Tarbul Earthstrider in EK
c. Tears of Erolisi from Captain Rottgrime in the Overthere outpost


2. Earth

Tiblner Milnik near FV asks for:

a. Staff of elemental mastery: Earth from something in hate.

Slizik the Mighty in the hole possibly drops Holy Dirt of Brell....
Slixin Klex In burning wood....

d. Shovel of ponz from focus quests.

4. Air

Kihun Solstin in the plane of air asks for:

a. Crown of Elemental Mastery from (Greater Sphinx on isle 7)
b. Elemental Binder from (the world below)
c. Cloak fashioned from the feathers of a Pegasus (Quillmane in SK)

3. Fire

Jennus Lyklobar in skyfire mnts asks for:

a. Torch of the elements from Neh'Ashiir in CoM
b. Burning Embers (rumored to be on a named wurm in Burning wood)
c. Blazing wand from undertow in kedge
d. Tome Rykas gave you (see below*)


* - Find Rykas in Rathe mountains

Rykas wants the 3 items:

1. Words of Magi'kot
2. Power of Elements
3. Words of Mastery

Rykas asks for 3 pages of magi'kot to be taken to Jahsohn Aksot in WC.

1. Jahsohn Aksot (in WC) asks for:

a. Enraged dreaded wolf in kith
b. Blood thirsty ghoul in Lguk
c. Tenticle terror in Unrest

Once you give Jahsohn the pages he gives you the Words of Magi'kot and says, “Rykas may have been right about you, Frizdag. Now, go find Walnan. Walnan was apprenticed to a very powerful Mage. After her apprenticeship was complete, she wished to begin teaching other beings of Norrath. Even those who knew nothing of the art! I do not believe she was successful, though. Seek her out to further your tale. Good luck in your journeys, Frizdag!)

2. Walnan (in Butcherblock) asks for:

a. Power of fire from the lava ele in sol a
b. Power of earth from fairy guards
c. Power of wind from gypsy in mistmoore
d. Power of water from raveners in kaesora

Once you give Walnan the powers she gives you the Power of Elements and says, ”The Arcane art of Summoning is derived from the power of the elements, which surround us. Continue your journey across the Ocean of Tears. In a dark fortress, you should find Akksstaf lurking about. Be wary, but tell him that you seek Magi'kot. Hurry now Xiff, you do not wish to miss the ship!"

3. Akksstaf (in Najena) asks for:

a. Torn page of master water (mobs in najena)
b. Torn page of master fire
c. Torn page of master air
d. Torn page of master earth

It is speculated that once you give Akksstaf the torn pages he gives you the Words of Mastery. You will then turn these into Rykas to get the tome you need for the Fire quest

How about a type of gypsy? A twirling and prancing wanderer... and for the corrupted part, how about the one's in MM? Aren't they cursed and turn into Werewolves at night? Sounds corrupted to me :) I'll check it out if someone doesn't find out first. Just an idea.

Rykas asks for 3 pages of magi'kot to be taken to Jahsohn Aksot in WC.

Enraged dreaded wolf in kith
Bloodthirsty ghoul in Lguk
Dark terror in Unrest

Jahsohn Aksot then asks you to find Walnan (in butcherblock)
(Jahsohn Aksot says 'Rykas may have been right about you, Radek . Now, go find Walnan. Walnan was apprenticed to a very powerful Mage. After her apprenticeship was complete, she wished to begin teaching other beings of Norrath. Even those who knew nothing of the art! I do not believe she was successful, though. Seek her out to further your tale. Good luck in your journeys, Radek !)

Walnan (in Butcherblock) asks for:
Powder of fire from the lava ele in sol a
Powder of earth from fairy guards
Powder of wind from (held by a twirling and prancing wanderer who has been corrupted)
Powder of water from (ravenous beast who is the minion of a fallen Sarnak)

Water.
Jinalis Andir in Dagnors Cauldron asks for:
Staff of elemental mastery:Water from phingiel in kedge
Rain of Karana from Tarbul Earthstrider in EK
Tears of erolisi from captain rotgrime in the overthere outpost

Earth
Tiblner Milnik near FV asks for:
Staff of elemental mastery:Earth from _____ in hate.
Dirt of the Underfoot from _____(Slix something or the other)
Slizik the Mighty in the hole possibly drops Holy Dirt of Brell....
Slixin Klex In burning wood....
Broom of trilon and shovel of ponz from focus quests.

Fire
Jennus Lyklobar in skyfire mnts asks for:
Torch of the elements (now kept by a doomed lord of merchants)
Burning embers (rumored to be on a named wurm in Burning wood)
Blazing wand from undertow in kedge
Tome Rykas gave you ..... guess rykas will give ya something

Air
Kihun Solstin in the plane of air asks for:
Crown of Elemental Mastery from (Greater Sphinx on isle 7 i hear)
Elemental Binder from (the world below)
Cloak fashioned from the feathers of a Pegusus....





Elemental Binder

Just a thought, may not be nothin, but anybody ever thought about The Elemental Grimore, it seems like a mage only Notebook or Binder to stuff stuff in, like components, or perhaps a tome of some sort kinda like the ones we had to decipher to learn new research recipies...Could be nothin, but everybody has access to these these and they do seem to become obsolete after lev. 49 pet scrolls are researched, just a thought from a humble Mage seein how Verant would probably think we had one of the most perplexing components of the quest in our possesion since lev. 16 and probably destroy it after lev. 49 when lev 50 is sometimes the trigger in quests like these...Or maybe just these ;), seein how i believe some NPC now only talk to 50+ PC for their Particle weapons

Addendum To Day 3
# Sep 22 2000 at 1:04 AM Rating: Decent
I post day 3 an hour or two early and everyone repays me by finding stuff :) So I stayed up late to compile (I sacrifice, I really do :P )

Thanks to Ignitz and Ryeed for their all important posts here :)

The Element of Earth is found off of Faerie Guards.
Important possible clue to Element of Air-"A wandering spirit" which looks like a willowisp spotted in West Karana. Willowisp definatly qualifies to the description, if someone could check and post, thanks please :)

A dark elf mage is found in Najena. Wasn't hailed by a 50+ so nothing to say about it. Possibly our third keeper of knowledge. Why? Bescause it seems that each Mage in Najena not only drops focus items but half of a word of mastery. Water is confirmed there. The other half of water is confirmed to drop off alligators in Cazic Thule. Air, Fire, Earth are not confirmed in Najena but since I'm in the area I'll check it out tomrrow.

If each Mastery word comes in two parts that leaves eight items to aquire for Mastery words before someone can complete the Rykas portion of the quest and we can be assured of the result.

If half drop in Najena, any have any ideas for Earth, Air, and Fire?

Tomorrow I'm going to post a breakdown of the quest into it's component parts for easy reference.

Kill them Faery guards... Location of the camp is 1063, 3493 Me and another Magi got them off the regular guards, not the royal ones. Only problem is too many maidens spawn, and we had to kill 20+ guards to get the 2 Powers of earth. They look like Jacinth and the GBS...Small round rocks.

I just got my Power of Earth last night. Just to clear up a question. YOu don't have to kill Royal Guards for the Power of Earth, regular Faery Guards will do. Also, a friend and I camped the item and it took us about 2 hours each before we got ours so it is a fairly rare drop.

Decided to pop into the Plane of Sky and take a look around with the leaders of my new Alliance. None of us had been there so it was just a research trip for the first island. Well we went to the Efreeti area and I found a Human male with a white robe off to the side. Here's the log:

Logging to 'eqlog.txt' is now *ON*.
You say, 'hail Kihun Solstin'
Kihun Solstin says 'So, you have made it this far. I am Kihun Solstin, the Master of Wind. I control the unfettered Element like none other. As you should have learned, Air is the most potent of Elements. It fuels Fire, Water is comprised of it, and Earth cannot restrain it. Knowing this, do you seek the Element of Wind?
You say, 'I seek the Element of Wind'
Kihun Solstin says 'I will test you then. In this wondrous plane of Air, find the Crown of Elemental Mastery, and search the world below for an Elemental Binder, and a cloak fashioned from the feathers of a Pegusus. Return them to me and I shall give you the Element of Wind.

Someone has posted below the speculation or confirmation of the above items. We're doing good folks. Let's keep chugging!

Day 3 Recap
# Sep 21 2000 at 8:22 PM Rating: Default
As I said we're on the home stretch, there are only one or two more npcs to find. Since any total recap would be terribly long, I refer you to Day 2's recap, and these are the updates:

Walnan-

Found in Butcherblock, she wants the four powers of the elements for her word of power:

Power Of Earth, warded by a fae creature.
Power Of Fire, held by an elemental.
Power Of Wind, held by a twirling and prancing wanderer who has been corrupted.
Power Of Water, held by a ravenous beast who is the minion of a fallen Sarnak.

The Power of Water drops off reveners. Got 0/8 drops off of normal reveners and 5/5 drops off of reveners with adjectives (hungry revener etc) in front of their name.
The Power of Earth comes from a Fae creature, and since the rest of this quest is far too high for a greater fay creature, I would suggest lesser fay.

The Mage of Air has also been found in (surprise surprise) the Plane of Air.

She wants-
A crown of elemental mastery from air.
and from the world below-
an Elemental Binder
and a "cloak fashioned from the feathers of a pegasus"

We all know too well the Pegasus Cloak of South Karana. Where to get an elemental binder?

This is very disheartening to most of us, as we know the rarity of the cloak and the difficulty of obtaining anything from air, let alone the crown of mastery.

Finally, a named Sand Giant named Cel-something (it was a fifteen minute long fight too, can't believe I don't remember) spawns in Oasis. I can confirm that this giant has his own spawn table and is not a rare on others. He is 50+ (I was told 51) he DOES summon. He maxes for 220 damage per hit. He regens amazingly fast. How fast? I attemped the backstabbing pet trick (snare, sow mage and pet, /pet no taunt, and dd). Ran him around for five minutes before I realized pet wasn't doing enough backstab damage to overcome the regen. So I starting flinging dds, and I ran out of mana before I could kill (I don't even think it was close). He regened back to full while killing some hapless warrior. Took down 11 40-50+ before reinforcements arrived and about 25 of us took him down. Dropped a spoon which is for a mage quest, or so I have been told. Clearly for the third keeper of knowledge quest.

So we've found all of our Mages and know what each one wants. As for the "keepers of knowledge" we know that this is perhaps a lesser included quest to the Fire one, as she asks for Rykas' tome.

What's left?

The third keeper of knowledge member (The owner of the words of mastery) is unknown?
The following items do not have (in my humble opinion) clear locales where they can be dropped...Elemental Binder (?), Torch of the elements (Dalnir or CoM), burning embers (Skyfire, Burning Woods), Powers Of Earth (somewhere in Faydwer), Wind (?), and Fire (Although this is almost certainly lava or blazing elementals).
Also, we're missing a final NPC with which to turn in all of our elemental mastery orbs.

If we consider Rykas and the three mages for the words the "Prologue" to the main quest and the Four Elemental Masters as the "actual" quest, one can notice the disparity in levels between one and the other, the fire and air items must all come from 40+ zones (The lowest level items in the "actual" quests are the sol ro quest items themselves).

Good luck all.

Also keep in mind the single word differences, all of the other powers are "held" but earth is "warded" thus I would think earth comes from some sort of guardian or protector

I'm not sure if this guy is new or not, but I hadn't seen him before... in the Erudin Library is now an NPC named "Tomekeeper Danl" (or similar). He says he's looking for various tomes/scripts/etc. Does anyone know what he;s looking for? (sorry, may be completely unrelated).
RE: Day 3 Recap
# Sep 21 2000 at 8:33 PM Rating: Default
While reading over it something I forgot to add. I mentioned the disparity of levels between the prologue and the actual quest. All of the "Keepers of Knowledge" (I love making up names) require things which can easily be accomplished solo at 50 (I have even fought in lower guk and killed bloodthirsties as only on in zone). All of the "Elemental Masters" require things that take high level groups or multiple high level groups to aquire (Hole raid, Hate raid, Kedge raid, Rottgore is probably a full party kill, etc...)

That means that the Powers all drop from 30-low 40ish which limits the zones where wind could appear, we should have all the powers down to one or two zones.

I should point out, however, that if the giant in Oasis does drop something for the Words of Mastery quest, that would NOT be something soloable by a level 50 mage :)

Power Of Water is off of reveners in Kaesora. I got a 0/8 drop off of simple reveners and a 5/5 drop out of reveners with adjectives in front of their names. I own it so it's confirmed.

On an unrelated topic, a named SG in Oasis (Who was VERY difficult to bring down) is said to drop a mage item for the quest.

I managed to find her, and yes, it was a she, in a dark purple robe..

after you say you've come to learn the truth, she says sumthing about magi'kot (which i forgot, ofcuz)... instead of using his whole name in the sentence just use magi (think i used /say tell me about magi)
after that she asks, if you know what became of magi'kot, just /say no
and THEN the "fun" begins :(

Only a few Elementalists and followers outside our circle know what truly happend to magi'kot. Even now, many are fearful to speek of his name. If you truly wish to continue, here is what you must do.
gather the Power of Earth, warded by a fae creature. Then seek the Power of Fire, held by an elemental. Next you will need the Power of the Wind, held by a twirling and prancing wanderer who has been corrupted. Finally, the Power of Water, held by a ravenous beast who is the minion of a fallen sarnak. Bring them to me, and i shall give you the Power of the Elements.

well, im pretty lost now... but i think that she i the final NPC we turn all our final quest items into.... any thoughts ? ALL are welcome......

Power of Water was confirmed above in Kaesora off reveners with adjectives in front of their names.

For Power of Fire think of the places that elementals are (perferably high-level ones) and try there.

For Power of Earth, they said Fae creature and that can mean a few things becuase in Fantasy Literature the Fae is anything assocaited with elves typically. Think Brownies (though I think a druid quest is assocaited with these), Faeries, Pixies, the Fae drakes, etc... I think I good place to start would be Faydark but you might also want to try Firiona Vie since that zone is named after an elven princess.

For Power of Air, the only thing Twirling I can think of is dervishes in Lavastorm (similar creatures are in Plane of Sky but that's not relavent I think since we are talking about new NPCs). Look for something with the Corrupt label (a few of these out there now) with the twirling and prancing type of animation.

Remember, unlike with the Original FA we have about 250,000+ people seeing new things everyday. Something will turn up soon enough.

There's a new 'tainted brownie' in lessor fay, when killed, spawns a corrupted brownie, who drops a 'Green Heartwood Branch' (druid only)... could this item contain/represent the Power of the Wind? (someone needs to start casting Identify on these items).

I don't think she's the final npc.. Says she will give you the Power of the Elements, which, as I recall, is one of the three things that Rykas asks for. Power of the Elements, Words of Magi'kot, and Words of Mastery... Rykas then, I assume will hand you a tome, which is the final thing that Jallus in Skyfire asks for. Perhaps you collect the item from the lady in Dagnors cauldron (Water), guy in FV (earth), Jallus in Skyfire (Fire), and then get the final one (Air) from someone in the PoA... Anyone checked for new npc's there yet? Hard to say...

Dirt of Underfoot
# Sep 21 2000 at 9:55 AM Rating: Decent
Has anyone tried handing Tiblner Soil of Underfoot? Soil of Underfoot is a component in making Ronium, which is then used to craft Armor of Ro. You get Soil of Underfoot by giving 4 faerie dusts to the Cleric guildmaster in Kaladim (need amiable faction).

This is probably not the correct item, but just an idea since soil and dirt are essentially the same thing.

I would have to say no to this one, simply because it doesn't follow the current pattern of things:

a) Everything is gotten off of new NPCs
or
b) Even if it is gotten off an old NPC you still have to kill it to get the item, which was not in it's loot table until the patch

And remember who we are dealing with here. Soil and Dirt may be essentially the same thing, but Verant plays the game of symantics (words that mean the same while still being different words) very well. Best bet is to stick with trying to kill the Guy in the Hole, which by coincidence used to be called The Plane of Underfoot.

OK, got a suggestion for you guys. Earlier on, someone posted that Slix dropped the dirt of underfoot. Recently I've spent alot of time in Burning Woods, and there is a named skelly in the crater named Slix (forgot the surname). This could possibly be where it drops. I didn't kill him at all last night cause before the recent patch, he hadn't dropped anything. I'll go back today and check it out though.

General Idea of the Quest
# Sep 21 2000 at 7:41 AM Rating: Default
What all summaries lag is the epic idea of the Quest, so here some thoughts about that.
Well to me it seems that Magì'kot is kind of historical source to the desired item.
What do we know: He did not accepted any Element to be the best (told by 2 of the guessed 4 Masters). And this decision was his doom. So most probably he isn't himself involved in the Quest.
Following this logic we need something more than Magi'kot had. Well Rykas promised to give something to learn more about the power of the orb. This wisdom (held in a tome ?) requires Magi'kots word, Word of Mastery (something Magi'kot possible lagged and that lead to his doom) and Power of Elements. What is the last one ? In my guess another book or scroll.
This part should be able to be solved by following the trail currently stuck at Walnan, a female Teacher which most probably know about the Word of Mastery.
How do the Masters of each Element fit into this ?
Sorry no clue, the point that the Master of Fire wants Rykas tome really screwed me up by now.
I think we have found only small parts of the whole Epic story to be revealed, but lets go on....

Anybody know where in BB she is? The zone is huge and irregular and running around for an hour without track would be moderatley pointless.

Jennus Lykobar IS NOT OUR NPC!

Jennus Lykobar is not for the magician quest, he has been int the game since kunark came out, as anyone who has ever hunted in skyfire can tell you! I asked around and he has to do with the veeshan's peak key quest aparently.

Recap Of Day 2

Has anyone else noticed that we're by far and away the class most done with their quest?

For those of you joining our program mid-broadcast here's what we have so far (compiled from various sites and personal experience):

Prologue-

Find Rykas in Lake Rathe, he is on an island with a single aviak spawn. He wants you to deliver a coin. Jahsohn Aksot in West Commons accepts the coin and will tell you of the words of magi'kot, and where they are located.

Magi'kot words-

Short walk to Kithikor, dread wolves drop page 1. About one in four seemed to have it for us (During our run of the zone we killed 16 and got 5, so that's pretty on). Easily soloable post 50 (what you need to begin quest anyway)

Port to unrest, go to basement, dark terrors and tentacle terrors hold page 2. We got 2 in 2 kills.

Port to South Ro and head to lower guk. Bloodthirsty goblins are soloable but difficult if you are low 50s. This should be done in groups of two or three, it is signifigantly easier to get in and you have a chance for multiple bloodthirsties each spawn. They drop page 3. Also got 2 in 2 kills.

Return all the pages to Aksot. He gives you a single word of magi'kot.

Earth-

Go to Firiona Vie. Wandering Mage called Tiblner. He gives the Earth quest, you need.

Earth Mastery Staff- Innoruuk
Shovel Of Ponz and Broom Of Trilon- Sol Ro Quests
Dirt of Underfoot- A very reasonable suggest is slizek the mighty in the hole. It has confirmed to drop in the hole, as a guild got some during a raid.

Water-

Dagnor's Cauldron. Jinalis Andir gives the water quest.

Water Mastery Staff- Phinigel Atropos, Kedge
Rain of Karana- Named Hill Giant in East Karana, confirmed this myself too. Two mages and a Necro got him to spawn twice in 15 mins by clearing the hill with our pets. Easy win for us, he hits for 100 and has a TON of life, so this is another situation when it is beneficial to bring many mages and just stay there till you have it. He spawns on the large hill by the farmhouses. Kill hill giants, hill denizens, and once killed a rogue lion (never saw it before) to make him spawn. Rogue could possibly be another rare he shares the table with.
Tears of Erollisi- Confirmed (but not by me) to drop off Captain Rottgrime in The Overthere. You're gonna need some firepower here because multiple mobs tend to come and he's no cakewalk by himself. Consider a full high level group if no enchanter.

Fire-

Skyfire Mountains. Jennus Lykobar is a rare wandering NPC. Likes to hang out by blue orb (near burning woods). After killing many things in the zone he still didn't spawn for us, which leads me to believe this is a timed spawn rather than a rare on a spawn table. The fire objects are still undiscovered so I'll proffer some hints.

"Bring me the Torch of the Elements now kept by a doomed lord of merchants..."

My guess would be something in City of Mist? I have heard of new spawns there and no other place seems to fit.

"...the burning embers of a notable member of wyrmkind who can be found a short journey from here..."

Named wyrm in Burning Woods. Pretty sure of this.

"...and a blazing wand, which you should be familiar with..."

Common drop off of Undertow of Kedge keep.

"... And you must surrender the tome rykas gave you..."

This one is rough. If Rykas wants the words of magi'kot and mastery and proof of your elemental mastery, doesn't that mean his quest would require this to be solved?

So our unknowns are slowly dwindling:

Where is Walnan?
Where is the Air Master?
Where is the Torch Of The Elements?
and Who holds the Words of Mastery?

It's only Day 2, but I think we're on the home stretch.

You sure the torch isn't the Torch of Alna we get to summon a fire elemental? Just a thought

No the poster of the source site specifically said Underfoot, because he (a monk sadly) still had it in his possession. Holy Dirt of Brell is one of four pieces of a Hole only quest.

If you are indeed correct that the Lord of CoM drops the Torch, this will be a very easy part of the quest. After it wiped my entire guild's raid we sent in two buffed 49 fire pets (yes we all know how bad the 52 is) and backed them with two clerics. Nobody had to cast except the clerics, the fire pets finished the mob themselves. Also keep in mind there are 3 different lords and they do not fight the same (to my knowledge)

quick corrections for the guy who posted this.

"Dirt of Underfoot- A very reasonable suggest is slizek the mighty in the hole. It has confirmed to drop in the hole, as a guild got some during a raid. "

This is not confirmed. Holy Dirt of Brell drops in the Hole off random mobs, but it does not work for the quest, as the guy did not reply when i handed it to him. If a guild has killed Slizek and got some, then i could be wrong, but you said they got some, so i am willing to say they got Dirt of Brell, not Dirt of Underfoot.

I am thinking the torch drops off of the Lord in CoM, cast an AE 850 damage Fire based DD every 12 secs.

""...the burning embers of a notable member of wyrmkind who can be found a short journey from here..."
Named wyrm in Burning Woods. Pretty sure of this."

I think that this piece actually comes off of either the Ancient wurm, near VP. Or one of the New level 55 Dragons, there is a red fire one in Skyfire. The reason i dont think it is a normal named wurm is because they are too dam easy and the guy says "notable member of wyrmkind"
