This is a 18th anniversary quest. (WARNING group with a lvl 105 so they can kill the adds - reward is only usable once you level to 105)

You say, 'Hail, High Magister Zueria'

High Magister Zueria says, 'There's no need for formalities between us, Jeffroex. I come on [unofficial business:What sort of unofficial business?], a personal errand for [Tsaph Katta:Who is Tsaph Katta?]. Do you have time to [help:I will help you, High Magister.] us?'

You say, 'What sort of unofficial business?'

High Magister Zueria says, 'The glorious leader of the Combine, [Tsaph Katta:Who is Tsaph Katta?] is prone to wanderlust, and he's been cooped up in [Lceanium:What is Lceanium?] for awhile now. He's asked me to escort him on a tour of some of the many ancient [spires and dragon circles:What spires and dragon circles?] that once made up our cross-continental teleportation network.'

You say, 'Who is Tsaph Katta?'

High Magister Zueria raises her shoulders and lifts her chin up before saying, 'Tsaph Katta is the Combine's timeless leader. The greatest speaker, diplomat, and unifier that Norrath has ever seen. If you haven't met him already, you're in for a privilege today. He rarely leaves [Lceanium:What is Lceanium?].'

You say, 'What is Lceanium?'

High Magister Zueria says, 'Lceanium is the heart of the new Combine. From its fortified position in the hills of Kunark, we will strike at its heart. I was under the impression that you'd already visited, but I must've been misinformed. My apologies.'

You say, 'What spires and dragon circles?'

High Magister Zueria says, 'I'm surprised you haven't heard of them, Jeffroex. I believe your wizards still use many of them today. We're in the process of compiling a report on the operating status of all of the Spires and Dragon Circles used at the height of the former empire. That's what we'll be working on today.'

You say, 'I will help you, High Magister.'

High Magister Zueria says, 'Excellent! I'll inform Tsaph that we should be ready to leave soon. Please stay close and check back with me when you're [ready:I'm ready.] to leave.'

You have been assigned the task 'Tsaph's Day Off'.

You say, 'I'm ready.'

High Magister Zueria says, 'Stay close to me, friends. Tsaph is ready for us. I'll teleport us to him now!'

Your task 'Tsaph's Day Off' has been updated.

High Magister Zueria whisks you away with her as she teleports to meet Tsaph Katta.

High Magister Zueria floods the area with power as she teleports away with her allies. She will return shortly.

You have entered Dreadlands.

Note: Basically your are following two NPCs. Tsaph Katta and High Magister Zueria. (Stay with them as they will port to the next zone in the task)

* At some zones there is a kill task of 5 mobs but these are old zones .

* You can have a merc and you might be with others at that stage in the normal zone.

* There were two groups, I know one of the kill quests I did not get all 5 but I was ported to the next zone
and the task updated as done.

* The task doesn't lock at any point. Added members do not need to be in group or in the final zone to get the reward.

    DS on Tsaph & High Mage

    I ran an 85 heroic mage through. First fight at GD I just stayed invis... and got left behind.

    Gated to PoK, re-entered back to GD stage and used DS and short term DS on High Mage. This worked.

    At Skyfire I was foolish and sent in pet too. Ended at 12% health from rampage since I had dismissed the original merc and not done the quest yet. So, can't say for sure it worked at Skyfire too but probably...

    I'm level 105 but I cannot equip the reward, nor does anything happen when I click it. (The item window says "Can equip", not "must equip".) I am able to convert it through the cycle of destinations.

    Can't equip? The charm is ALL/ALL.
    If you mean the "Can Equip" statement for the teleport spell effect... Charms don't have stats or effects until they have been equipped to check what percentage of those stats and effects they should apply, therefor the charm doesn't have the clicky yet when it's just sitting in a bag. So, put it into your charm slot, then back into your bag, and now the charm's spell can be clicked from inventory until you zone. Once you have zoned, you'll have to re-equip it to gain access to the spell again. This is true for any other Charm with a clicky effect, like the Polished Diamond Prism.

    What an odd little quest... with an overly generous reward, especially for EQ which has historically been very parsimonious with quest rewards.

    First time I did this, solo with my 105 druid, I noticed I wasn't getting any kill credits as the two NPC's killed mobs. This seemed to contradict comments here that you don't have to do anything. So then I started attacking the mobs but since I wasn't grouped with the two NPCs I figured I needed to do 51%+ damage to get the kill credit. These mobs are DB so my mistake as they're quite capable of killing a 105 player without a merc. So I died.

    That didn't seem to be a big problem since I went back to PoK, hailed the quest-giver and got ported back to the spot where I died. The instance and quest continued. Now I noticed you just have to do a little damage to the mob and your kill count is incremented, as if you are indeed grouped with the two NPCs.

    However I noticed I only got 4/5 kills before the mobs stopped spawning. Initially this didn't appear to be a problem since the animations continued and when we ported to the next spire the kill step was checked off as if I had 5/5 credited.

    BUT... that must be a bug. Because the quest continued to the end, I was credited with all steps, but no closing dialogue and no reward. I could even hail the quest-giver and get ported to the starting spire but the two NPCs were not there.

    So I'm bugged. Dropped the quest and will try again in 5 hours.

    Moral of the story: be sure to do some damage to each of 5 mobs so you get 5/5 credit.

    Ok did it again. Must have been dying that broke the quest for me. Did it again, and on one of the pack of mobs only got credit for 4/5. But completed the quest and got the charm.

    Stats are 184AC 4345 HP 4115 mana in a Kunark zone and 174AC 4127 HP and 3909 mana outside of Kunark. Still a very nice charm for the minimal effort. You do just have to be 105 to use it. Crazy generous reward all things considered. Plus it's tradeable on FV. /boggle

    This was nerfed today with the patch they applied this morning. You only get two commemorative coins now and at lvl 90 I received approximately 2% regular xp.

    Unless your pets are disposable.

    I just saw my air 80 pet get killed during those 'defend' steps.

    DO NOT engage, unless you're 105. You'll be safe. Otherwise the mobs WILL attack you and they con RED to me.
    thankfully my merc healer kept me from dying.

    So just sit tight. Enjoy the read of dialogue.

    Once the quest completes you get your level 105 charm. Sadly, it's NOT usable until you're 105. Teleport functions don't activate and if you try, it will tell you that you're not sufficient level.

    Good game. Makers...sigh...

    Btw. Level 84 Mage. I was at 25% exp before I did the quest.

    I got to 53% after! Holy exp batman!!

    You may be safe, but you CAN'T advance the task!

    If your kill count is ZERO, you will be LEFT BEHIND when the High Magister teleports away.
