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.

RE: still no burning embers
# Dec 18 2000 at 8:28 AM Rating: Decent
12 times? Holy smokes.. could you give us some info on how you got him to spawn, how long the spawn time is, how many people it takes, etc.. Please people, when you post info (even if its old or pathetically easy) give full details if possible, some of us have never seen these mobs. I'd like to try my hand at this guy as well, maybe one of us will get lucky. Rumor has it its a rare drop *sighs*. Someone post up a cheap webpage with a screenshot of you about to loot the embers if you already have one, thanks. *does his Bush impression* We need closure!

yes 12 times in 4 weeks !! you have to kill wurms and hope ....
Don t fŪnd him at time and my guild only wait for me to go to POA to get the crown and 4 other epikitems (ranger warrior and one FA) but we cannot go while I don t have my last Item for the quest I only need the crown and the burning ember .... so sad.
For all those who think the pet costs a lot of mana
# Dec 16 2000 at 9:25 AM Rating: Default
The pet only costs 500 mana not 620 not 800 not 1000 or even 1100 its ONLY 500. When you right click the orb that you SUMMON you get a pet. you do NOT use the effect ON a pet. the effect PRODUCES a pet. Get it? Got it? Good!!!
RE: For all those who think the pet costs a lot of mana
# Dec 16 2000 at 7:34 PM Rating: Default
ok 500 to cast the orb that's right !
But now the problem : the orb has nice stats and 20 int and 100 mana !! so ok if you don t use the 20 int and be able to stay at 200 without orb np.
but why an Item with 20 int don t use the int ?
so now you have 180 int + orb =200 int and when you start casting the orb you have 180 int so after equip the orb you have to med up over 800 mana GOT IT ???

And each LD the same ...

# Apr 13 2001 at 10:13 AM Rating: Default
I don't think the orb is no rent, LD isn't an issue. Also, if you have the gear available get your int as close to 220 as you can before you remove the orb. Then summon your new orb and replace the useless +int gear with AC or saves or mana.

Hi. My friend and me are starting a website dedicated to our player-runned shop on Bertoxx in the treetops of Kelethin. Well my friend went on E'ci and interviewed the guy who got it. He was in North Freeport at the bank. Though I couldn't make it on in time to see, my friend got a log. He said the pet was huge. Yes, the weapon only has one charge, so you destroy it and summon a new one. If you'd like to get the interview, it will be at http://www.geocities.com/legacyoftunare

What type of pet is this? do any of the focus items work on it?
Ahh! Got my pegasus cloak!!!
# Dec 10 2000 at 9:00 PM Rating: Default
In a previous message I said that I cancelled my account to protest against the fact that cloak is needed and turns the quest in a nightmare (addiction for fun ok, addiction for pain no!). Since my subscription is still finishing (but account cancelled) and since velious cdrom is really cheap, I connected again a bit after several months of no EQ play (after 8 days of sitting in SK I was FED UP with the entire game). My velious cd will arrive in a few days (from european retailer).

The method told in this old email works fine, but you really need luck since you will all the time be far from the point where Quillmane will be sighted by other players... (method is to kill as fast as possible roaming centaurs in north, then named rare mobs in south, then redo again and again ... to give server enough free points to be able to roll the rare quillmane which in fact is rare because it costs many points)

But this time, on second day (sunday), after a usual command "/ooc desesperately looking for pegasus cloak for mage epic quest" and chating with players that are very sad for mages... a very generous soul named WildWulf sighted it and gave me a private tell, and even brought the winged horse to my location !!!

Thousand thanks to WildWulf and all other generous souls that may help mages in SK against this terrific epic quest part.

(other good news, I learned that a member of a guild on my server almost completed the epic quest -he got aggroed at last moment and lost items, bug GM may give him the epic weapon-. Thus I have a guild good enough to reach 7th island! Cool! I was afraid about that. Guild is Avatars of Discord on Rodcet Nife. Once I get all soloable components I will seriously serve them and try to join them for raid-only items)

How Do You Get/Find Nezekezena
# Dec 08 2000 at 10:45 AM Rating: Default
I've hunted BW for a long time now yet have only ever once seen Nez shout the zone whilst trying to turn someone into mush.

Iv'e heard that the Sarn Avenger is a PH for Nez, but a bard said it was a Tatterback(seems odd), either way can someone who has hunted Nez multiple times please say how they got to find the spawn. Obviously need a tracker and fear caster but thats not a problem, can get the people just cant find the damn Wurm.

As far as i know, Nezekeneza used to drop nothing, and the guts for the bard quest were found on a mob with the wurm graphic but named 'a sarnak extremist' (some mix up in the tables).
This has not been fixed i think. So shall we kill Nezekeneza itself, or the 'sarnak extremist' wurm? Norseh or any one else that got embers, please let us know for sure, thx =).

It is NOT used ON a pet. The effect IS a pet. So for the 500 mana cost to create your weapon, you get a pet too.
RE: I dont beleive it
# Dec 05 2000 at 11:55 PM Rating: Decent
Lemme put it very very slowly for you.

You do the quest, you get a spell scroll.

Cast the spell, it summons the Orb for 500 Mana. (appropriate for Mages, don't you think?)

Use the Orb, and you summon an Elemental the size of a house.

Re-cast it as many times as you wish. It's only 500 mana, right???

I think it's a damn good ending to the quest, and I wish all the Magicians out there luck with it. All I got out of mine, was a hilt ;)
RE: I dont beleive it
# Dec 06 2000 at 4:06 AM Rating: Default
Size of a house?! Use it to block any dungeon entrance. It cast invisibity? That would be fun. ;)

Summon one at lavastorm to solb zone is fun too.

Just wonder how to use it inside dungeon.
RE: I dont beleive it
# Dec 08 2000 at 11:56 AM Rating: Default
The size of a house is exagerated hehe. It s still about as huge as a golem from the pics i've seen).
For the fact the orb has no NO RENT mention, it's pretty simple : it is NOT no rent hehe).
So the first time you'll summon an orb, use its charge to make the Big Bad Megapet, destroy it, wait 5 mins for spell to be usable again and summon another one with a charge so that you have a free megapet ready in case yours die.
Later on when you'll log on you sill still have an orb ready with its charge, so you ll use only 500 mana to make your pet and get a new orb (more or less, if u count the mana loss by unequiping the orb, and if u made a few mod rods in case you're mana full to lessen that mana loss).
The only really bad thing about our epic quest item is that the Big bad pet has been reported to cast cancel magic. Absor denied though.. So, either it's an unintended feature that will hopefully be removed some day..., either it's wrong info.

P.S : your post was pretty stupid... =).

RE: Mage Epic Solved
# Dec 05 2000 at 3:15 PM Rating: Decent
I have seen the pics on casters and believe them. A few things concern me....

1 - The pic does not say NO RENT, but if it is I will be pissed. I do not want to have to loose my epic weapon every time I go LD or quit the game. Lets assume you have 200 INT while holding the weapon. Now, since the weapon gives you 100 mana and +20 INT, this means that when the weapon is destroyed, you loose approximate 300 mana (again assuming you have 200 int). With 220 int you would only loose about 120 mana.

2 - Caster's shows the weapon as having 1 charge. Please let this be false. This means that everytime we want to summon pet in game, we have to summon another orb. Now, assuming that the orb is NOT NO RENT and you used the charge the last time you summoned the orb, you will have to destroy the orb you have, loosing 120-300 mana (see #1). You then resummon the orb ( 500 mana? ), summon pet (300+ mana), then use the charge on pet. Total mana in worse case is about 1100 mana for your wonderful new pet....ouch.

I think having the orb be summoned, while a novel idea, really sucks. Having to destroy the orb and resummon (thus losing the mana it gives you) every time you summon a pet is going to be a pain in the ***** I hope that castersrealm is wrong about the 500 mana to summon the orb (should cost no mana).

Personally, I would prefer to receive the weapon itself (with unlimited charges) instead of the spell to summon it. The only advantage to it being a spell is that you cannot ever accidently destroy your epic weapon, and you never have to worry about it rotting should you ever have a corpse in a position where it can't be retrieved. Then again, I think all epic weapons should be soulbound.

I like your math on the mana thing, any Int points post 20 count as only 1 mana, so its 20 mana from that 20 extra int bub. :)

And you are missing the point entirely, level 60 pet is below this super pet in power, strength, abilities, hp and ac, which means you are paying only 100 mana more for this super pet then you would a level 60. Darn that is such a waste of 100 extra mana, oh I could have spent that on ice cream or something. Summoning a second orb allows you to chain cast probably instantly as it appears indications show that your summoning of a pet is instant.

So spending 1000 mana gets you 3 things, 1) a current weapon that cant be surpassed by anything in game, 2) a pet alive and well that is more powerful then any tank or pet in game, and 3) a ready in waiting re-summon of another super pet (I think they need a cape in their graphics) a soon as you were to lose, if they can be killed somehow, your current pet.

I thought it pretty clear that with NO RENT NOT BEING THERE means you log, go LD whatever and you have your summoned NO DROP LORE weapon still when you come back online. Why would verant bother to make it NO RENT if you already had the NO DROP restrictions along with LORE, so there was no way to ABUSE this spell? Verant made restrictions because this is way more powerful then people are even giving it credit. All the complaints I have seen are DANG I WANT TO BE ABLE TO ABUSE THIS SPELL TO THE HILT cries. Personally I have never looked for a way to cheat in the game, but complaining about not being able to seems hollow to me.

You are partially wrong. You don't use the effect on an already existing pet. The effect is a pet in itself, so if you want a new pet, just destroy the old orb, summon a new one, and use its effect. BTW, the word is that the effect is an insta-cast.
RE: Mage Epic Solved

The only thing is if you saw the pic I did of the stats its lore no drop, so you cant give one to pets. but who cares, if you can keep from LD ing then this is well worth the manna it takes to use it as the pet can solo a lot of crap for you while your meddin back that 500 manna

Well, that is good news. :) The new pet will still cost around 620-800 mana to get, but probably is well worth it. I suspect that what most mages will do is always keep an orb with a charge, that way they always have an instant-cast backup pet.

Good day, My name is Deamer, im a 52 mage and have a couple quick questions for some who have some of the elemental mastery items.
1) im guessing these are the upgrades to the focus items, can anyone confirm this?:)

2)When i trade in the items for an element of earth, for example, is this element of earth a focus item or just a quest peice?

I am going to find the undertow tonight and with any luck the burning embers will drop off the wurm, ill reply to this to let you know if i got both.

thanks to anyone that can help:)

Sorry to disappoint you but the staff of elem mastery earth won't move from Inny, as they gave up the idea of making Inny and CT lvl60+ gods with new loot.
At least the staff seems to have become a much more common drop since the patch that fixed the Elemental Binder drop (reports of inny drops afteer that patch were showing something close to a 50% drop for the staff). So don't worry if u have what it takes to get the crown from PoA, the staff should be attainable now.
Several mages have already all the items but the burning embers, whose location is still unknown/uncomfirmed and that is probably not in game yet (I wish my guild was able to go to PoA island 7th..).

Over several days fighting in BW (since last patch), we've killed Entalon about a dozen times. No embers. I'm sure Entalon has been killed hundreds of times over all servers since last patch, and this is the first time I've heard of him dropping the embers. If Hypersonic is telling the truth, then the embers must be an ultra rare drop, which is discouraging.

Hopefully VI will up the drop rate in todays patch.

Bring me the Torch of the Elements now kept by a doomed lord of merchants, the burning embers from a notable member of wurm-kind 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!'

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 Erolisi 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.'

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?'

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 Pegasus. Return them to me and I shall give you the Element of Wind.'

Crown of Elemental Mastery - (Greater Sphinx - Plane of Sky 7th Island - assume No Drop item)

Elemental Binder - (Elemental Warriors and Crusaders from the hole)

Pegasus Feather Cloak - (Quillmane - South Karana - rare spawn/rare drop - Magic No Drop Item)

Give Kihun Solstin these items and you are given the Element of Air, a Magic, Lore and No Drop item.


Note: ONCE YOU HAND IN YOUR QUEST ITEMS FOR THE ELEMENT OF AIR THE MASTER OF ELEMENTS WILL SPAWN!!!!!. you would be wise to save this step till last as it is assumed that you need to hand in all for elements at this point to receive your epic weapon.

This is it so far. Burning Ember still unaccounted for. The assumtion is that once the Elemental Master spawns you just hand in all the Elements and go from there. This is unconfirmed though and only an assumtion.

Magician Epic Quest (First Half)Ė Information that is known so far - 10/25/2000

Your quest begins in Lake Rathe. Seek ĎRykasí at approximately 1000, -700.

You say, 'hail Rykas'

Rykas says 'Greetings [Your Name] , 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.

(Rykas hands you a gold token coin)

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.

Next, travel to West Commons. You are in search of Jahsohn Aksot for the Words of MagiíKot. I assume you can use the locate summoned spell to find him faster..

Giving the Token of Mastery (the token you receive from Rykas) to Jahsohn produces the following response:

Jahsohn Aksot says 'What is this? I cannot believe you found it! Where did you get this?'

You gain experience!!

You say, 'Rykas'

Jahsohn Aksot 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 Aksot 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 Aksot 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.

All of the torn pages are NODROP and LORE.

The Torn Page of Magi'Kot 1 can be found off Raged Dreads and Dread Wolves in Kithicor Forest,

The Torn Page of Magi'Kot 2 is found off Dark/Tentacle Terrors in Unrest,

The Torn Page of Magi'Kot 3 is found on Bloodthirsty Frogloks in Lower Guk at the Frenzy spawn.

Hand in all three of these Torn Pages to Jahsohn and you receive the first item Rykas requested, the "Word of MagiíKot." This item is nodrop/lore.

Jahsohn Aksot says 'Rykas may have been right about you, [Your Name] . 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, [Your Name]!

Next stop is Butcherblock. Look for Walnan, rumored to be rare because she despawns when her quest is completed. She will give you the quest for the Power of the Elements, which is described below.

Next quest Step begins is in Butcherblock. Seek ĎWalnaní at approximately LOC - 1177,926 (she wanders the path, use sense summon and follow her pet to her she is fast)

You say, 'hail Walnan'

Walnan says 'Hello [Your Name]! I am Walnan, elementalist, summoner, wanderer, and sometimes teacher. Might you be a elementalist in search of the truth?

You say, 'I am an elementalist 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, '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.

Notes :

To receive :

The Power of Earth you must slay a Faerie Guards in Lesser Faydark.

The power of Fire can be found as a common drop on the Lava Elemental in SolA and Blazing elements near efetti spawn. (expect to camp for 8+ hours)

The Power of Water is found off Enraged, Famished and Hungered Raveners in Kaesora.

The Power of Wind, is found off a Gypsy Dancer in Mistmoore.

Return these to Walnan to receive the nodrop/lore "Power of Elements" and the following speech:

Walnan '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 [Your Name], you do not wish to miss the ship!'

(Walnan despawns now and her pet attacks you. This may be a bug or a test to make sure you are high enough level. *shrug*)

You must now travel to Najena, in search of Akksstaff. He was once easy to locate, in the second room and always up. Now there are reports (and Iíve confirmed them for myself) that he wanders around and is not always spawned. This was changed after they made all four pages drop as they were supposed to.. He can still be found though, just keep looking and if you take more people you have a higher chance of finding him

TORN Word of Elements - Akksstaff - Nejena (spawn location is different on every server)

You say "Hail Akksstaff"

Akksstaff says 'What do you want?! Foolish Gnome, I am in no mood to treat with beggars. I have half a mind to turn Jobober here loose on you! Well, donít keep me waiting, state your business or be off with you!

You say "Akksstaff I seek Magi Kot" (no ' in the name, must be a space instead)

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 hear 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 treasure carefully, and delight in punishing trespassers.'

All four torn pages (Torn Page of fire/Air/Water/Earth mastery) can be found off the Dark Elf Magicians in the zone. They are semi-rare, but it shouldnít take as long as the next parts of the quest Return the four torn pages of mastery to Akksstaff and he will say the following: 'Very well. Take these words back to that shriveled old gnome, Rykas, if you wish to complete this quest. Now leave me, Jaalen , it sickens me to be this cordial for so long. And Jobober needs exercise. Go!'

You will receive a nodrop(lore also?) "Words of Mastery" which looks like a book. I think they got this and the tome Rykas gives us mixed up,

Return to Rykas and return the Words of Mastery, Power of the Elements, and the Words of Magi'kot. He will say the following:

'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.'

Rykas despawns at this point.

(NOTE : Rykas does despawn and his pet will attack you..pet is green at 56th, but may have faction)

You receive a tome from Rykas,

Which can be read. It 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 hold the Orb.

He can be found in the Plane of Air. 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."

There is is, the first half of the quest. This is all confirmed by ever friggin mage on the planet. Once the second half of the quest gets completed we'll see where that leads us.

What is the rest? If he popped the NPC, then i'm hoping he can provide some information on what else you need after recieving the element of Air considering the NPC won't pop unless you turn in the pieces for Air.

Burning Embers Idea...
# Nov 28 2000 at 12:17 AM Rating: Default
How about the King or Queen of chardok? Sarnaks are considered "wurm kind" as the text says, and a king or queen is certainly notable ;). Plus it is also just a short distance from the quest NPC, like he says it should be.
RE: Burning Embers Idea...
# Nov 28 2000 at 11:21 PM Rating: Default
There is allso the prince lets not forget. A "notable" sure can be a member of royalty, a title of some kind at least, Ive have this thought myself for a while. Slix wasnt dropping anything prior to last patch either remember.
RE: Burning Embers Idea...
# Nov 28 2000 at 5:12 PM Rating: Default
If the burning embers came off these 2 we would have seen them by now since verant has continually said the embers are in the game and these 2 mobs have been killed. Good idea though, keep the ideas coming.

Well, just because another class' epic involves the king/queen as well, does not necessarily mean our's does not. Take for example Neh'Ashirr in the City Of Mist for our element of fire. Shamans, or so i'm told, need an item from him as well.
RE: Burning Embers Idea...
# Nov 28 2000 at 4:01 AM Rating: Decent
Warrior FA quest blade comes from Queen already, Clerics from King and Enchanters from Prince. So it's not likely that the Chardok Royalty will be carrying our quest pieces. nice idea though. might be a named Sarnak that has it.
Burning Embers Theory
# Nov 27 2000 at 12:11 AM Rating: Default
The text says a "notable member of wurmkind" has the embers, and that they are a short journey away.

The obvious choices first: We've all killed Entalon dozens of times over and nothing = it would stand to reason that if he had it, someone on some server would have gotten it now. And Talendor has been killed, and doesn't have it.

Let's assume the text is right, but that these 2 obvious mobs aren't the right ones. And let's factor in that it was reported that Abashi or the GM who designed the quest said something to the effect that maybe we are all looking in the wrong place, that it is hard, and it is worth it in the end. Based on the wurmslayer quest, there is a wurm in BW which is missing - Xyfl. Instead, you have to go to Sol Temple to get that particular scale off Xyfl's alternate form. The quest text could be correct in saying "a short journey" to BW to get Xyfl, but then the real mob is up in Sol Temple (or maybe somehow you trigger Xyfl to spawn by getting the alternate form to despawn or kill it). Just an idea...but it might fit...there already are other quest mobs in the mage quest you need to kill for a part (rottgrime who does the war braids, slixin who does one of the medallions in the vp key quest, etc)... Maybe an uber guild can test the idea and see...

Svenalo lol !! Good theory bro, I've been pondering the same thing, well not about Xyfl, but about them being on something that doesn't "appear" to be a wurm.. Hmmm good thinking, what level is this Xyfl in Sol temple ? Maybe we should check it out.

Presently I have the 4 pages needed to hand to Akksstaff one catch is he hasnt poped. I have totaly wiped all mobs from Najena many times over incase of a place holder, yet no Akksstaff any one have any idea on spawn time I spent close to 18 hours in that zone looking for that NPC. Any info that you may have would be greatly help my self and other mages in this Epic quest.

I do not know what the prob is with Akksstaff, I see him at the entrance to Najena everytime I go in. If not there then my the spiders and goblin mages. He is always there.
He Depops after you..
# Nov 26 2000 at 8:06 PM Rating: Default
He depops after someone turns in the words. I heard he can take up to three and four days to respawn. Also check in the lake where the frogs are...Ive found him twice swimming in the water. People are also leveling off him. I know this cause when I was looking for him last there was two people camping him and they wouldnt stop so that I could do what I needed, Which sucks, but it was true.

Good Luck

I now put close to 30 hours camp time in Akksstaff still not a single pop seams every person I talked to said oh yah I killed him the other day but he didnt drop anything good.. seams thats all I have to go by People kill him soon as he pops because he is a "named Mob" guess I will try again tommorow.

Actually he doesnt Depop, ever, its just that people have a very hard time trying NOT to kill him. I suggest going in at an odd time of day to get him, somewhere arround the early morning am's (3 eastern 4 central 5 mountian 6 pacific) in order to turn in the objects he requires. Getting them to drop is effortless its just handing them in that people have a problem with. I had no problem finding him (hes in the tentacle room before the broken gate usually, use sense summoned to lead you to him if hes not there)

otherwise im already finished with collection of the book and im working on collecting the elements of fire. ODD thing is that somehow nobody seems to mention whos after him specificly, i beleive that he does give you an item but he has no mentioning of it on many web pages ive searched thru.

until then i just follow that which i know and pray that i can get it before i enter the levels above 50
