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.. Orb... for.. you.. are.. worthy.. of.. reward.. and.. with... the.. aid.. of... the... balance.. balance.. contained.. within.. the.. Orb.. you.. may.. yet.. reach.. the... ultimate... Mastery.'

You receive Spell: Summon Orb. Scribe it immediately and cast it to summon your new epic weapon, the Orb of Mastery.

Jahsohn Aksot Broken?

I gave Jahsohn Aksot the token from Rykas in lake rathe, he gives me exp and says '...where did you get this?' I say Rykas gave it to me, he says Greetings. Everything else I say to him he says 'greetings'. Is this NPC broken? How do I start my epic if he will not respond properly?

Make sure you don't have him targetted when talking

Well, that's the first time I've heard that advice.

Anyway, don't worry about the dialog, you really just need to hand in the appropriate items.

There seems to be a bug if you have a NPC targetted and try to talk to him. Make sure you don't have him targetted when talking, and see if that helps.

If oyu are searching for Wanlan I can tell you where we ran into each other. Hard to explain so be patient with me(too dumb to get a /loc) OK when facing in from the docks, if you follow the trail it will make a bend to the left. At that bend, when I turned left about 110 degrees, wanlan was about 50 yards off the path.
Walnan MIA?

over 20 hours spent wandering between Kaladim and the docks in BB.. still no Walnan. I know... she is supposed to be a rare spawn, but that's a tad insane. Is there any 'triggers' or placeholders to get her to show up?

Walnan is not a rare spawn at all. She is almost always up, unless some one has decided to take target practice on her. She wanders the path in BBM from about where the crazed gobbies are, to the docks. Most of the time you will find her about half way between those points on the side of the hill, stationary. If shes walking around, it usally means some one attacked her and they lost. :)

Now that I look back, I've learned that a great deal of patience is required when hunting Quillmane. I've hunted for (her?) since I was level 28 (I'm 39 now.) First, knowing I would be challanged with the "trackers" hunting down the flying horse, I spent my time researching what others had to say about their experiences. After getting a good idea about what I needed to do, I set out to find her on my own. To tell you how lucky I was... I was looking at the stone mountains north of the Bird villiage and she popped right before my eyes. Woot!.. summoned Fire pet, casted on her 3 times.. brought her down and with excitement... looted the cloak(and I'll have to admitt, I was lucky to loot the cloak the first time also.) Hang in there my fellow Magicians. Don't give up!

Can't find Rykas
# Feb 23 2002 at 2:07 PM Rating: Decent
OK, I decide to start this quest so I run to Lake Rath, go out to loc 967, -665 and I can't find this Rykas guy anywhere. Am I looking in the wrong place? Does he wander? Do I have to do something to get him to spawn? Has this part of the quest been changed? Thank you for any helpfull answers in advance. Please no posts about how dumb I am cause I can't find this guy. I can't help it that my character's INT is higher than my own.

# Mar 03 2002 at 1:33 PM Rating: Default
I found him on the island at around 1000 -650, you have to look over the entire island. I think he is also not a consistent spawn. I found him on the flat level area on the island twice. This quest while it has great return is a pain in the @#$ to get. I started it at 27th and find it very challanging.

27th lvl mage

yes it has been changed, he is no longer on that island... he is now up against the wall behind a tree, so get a tracker or just keep wall to right when u zone and keep checking at all the camps, he is there, i just had that same problem myself

After spending hours camping quillmane, to no avail being lvl 56 and really only needing the cloak, i realized something. My understanding is we turn in the cloak to get a spawn in a different zone, if this is true (the walkthrough i have been using was posted along time ago), then why not make that druid/ranger get to lvl 20 then join a spire group...

Then you can track to your hearts content, sure sure got my druid from 20-41 camping a spire (soloing 1 after lvl 30). Killed quillmane everytime it poped (that i saw), and finally 21 lvl's later i got the cloak, camped my mage where he needs to be for the pop (after the druid hands it in, again hoping the walkthrough i am using is correct) so it's now just a matter of getting my druid to be able to turn it in, log and load mage, no biggie.

If your going to be there anyway ya might as well make the character to do it easier, i mean hey i got sick of druids/rangers getting it, so i played their game, had a TON of warrior/rangers try to KS me, but they never did and i got my cloak. Heard awhile back that ya could multiquest the cloak anyway so here's hoping :0)

BTW, quillmane poped, i got cloak zone went down for 2 and quillmane was there when i got back in, another cloak, /who all magician 3 in zone /tell highest lvl mage ya need pegasus cloak right? hehe 2 happy mages.

If ya can't beat them, join them-or play their game better than they play it :0)

# May 16 2003 at 11:14 PM Rating: Decent
You make perfect sense. Verant screwed mages by giving them the hardest epic when it comes to a zillion mobs to be killed, tons of rare drops, and a whole lot of running around endlessly. I am lucky for one thing- on Bertoxxulous server, there arent that many mages with their epic. South Karana is filled with 20-30 in level players at Aviaks and Splitpaw and none of them could care about quillmane...I got the joy of killing it once to get some leggings. I was dissappointed, but it WAS a better item than what I had in my original slot so it turned out okay. (My heart continued pumping adrenaline for 20 mins afterward...needed to go outside and take a walk!!) Most everyone in SK is familiar with me and glad to say if theyve seen quilly up, mainly because I summon stuff and DS them.

Now to get that damn cloak...and race every other ranger and druid to it, even though they don't deserve it! <stupid high level ppl on their PL trips, always ******** the mage over!>

P.S. Quilly spawned at the Bard Well, southeast of Undead Ruins for me. Almost mistook bard npc for another person, was ready to KS then anyways!=P lol

#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 25 2001 at 4:36 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You know I really do feel for those of you that are mages and "need" Quillmanes cloak, but I must say your attitude sucks about it. It is not any ones fault that Verant made a nice item that is useful to other races necesary for your epic (well maybe Verants fault). But they did... so maybe all you jerks should try a totally different tactice MAKE FRIENDS!!!!! Mr why don't you shove your head up your ***... sheesh no wonder no Ranger or Druid wants to help you track him. If what is posted here is any indication of how you are in game I feel absolutely no sympathy for you, you deserve every bit of what you get (or in this case don't get).

You have to be atleast 46 to get this 1)You have to be plane capable 2) Level listed for the spell is 46 not because I have it because I parsed the spdat file.

i like many mage's keep getting screwed out of my cloak by greedy rangers and druids, luckily i know not all are that way. I am on the morrell thule server and am continually tring to get quillmane, once i do i will be the happiest mage around. Once i get mine i think ill hunt quillmane for other mages =)I wish verant would pull there head out of there rear and make it mage only but i guess they just like to ***** casters.
well thats my 2 cp. if any young mages need help in najena for their focus or getting the pages look me up

#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 26 2001 at 10:24 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Maybe mages should pull their heads out of their asses. The cloak was in the game before epics were, and the item continues to be the only thing in the game with unlimited charges of levitate that doesn't require batwings. So yeah I think I'll keep the two cloaks I have on my two chars that AREN'T mages....thx.
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 01 2001 at 4:43 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It's idiots like you that people don't want to play with and can make questing really suck. Better idea for your cloaks... stick em up your *** boy! Nobody cares what you think!
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 05 2001 at 1:27 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I have read several post arguing about the ability to hand no drop/ lore items to pets. I have done experiments with no drop weapons (whip from OT off sarnak beserkers). My pet can use and those no drop weapons. The mod rod is a lore item however my pet can duel weild it. Therefor, although i do not have mag epic yet, unless it is a special circumstance, i/you should be able to make the orb, bust out uber pet, give epic to pet, make another and give second epic to pet. Thus having for 1000 mana an uber pet duel weilding 2 epics. lol
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 02 2002 at 9:36 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) duh - as soon as you hand your uber epic quest item to your pet YOU NEED TO RE DO THE WHOLE FRICKING QEST to get another - the first time you zone your pet dies and bye bye first epic

I ran into Walnan about two nights ago, she was in the Butcherblock mountains on the side of the road. She's a female High Elf wearing a purple robe. My location was 1700, -250. Apparently she spawns in different places, because a guide elsewhere gave a different location. One question: Do I have to give her each item separately, or can I give her all four items at once?
RE: Just a confirmation.

you can give her all 4 at once...

At 36, I have 14 of the 30 pieces required for this quest.

To be sure, I have picked up a couple of them from guild raids for others' epics - but still. And I am far too young to be ready for the rest of the pieces.

But there are 2 or 3 more I can get before I am level 40, so I figure to finish what I can now, then work on it again when I really am of proper level.

Can I start this at lvl 46 or do I have to wait til I get into 50's ? Also if I did do it at lvl 46 and cast the pet is it limited by my lvl? or is it the same strenght etc no matter whether a lvl 46 cast the spell or lvl 56 ?

Thanks for the info if ya can help

My mage on Prexus is currently 46, I was just wondering if you need to be over 50(like most epics) to complete this quest???
