You say, 'hail Ancient Totem'

Ancient Totem says 'Greetings, my friend it is not often that we see strangers coming to this plane. I fear that our growing infestation problem has kept us busy as of late. The time for battle grows near yet we still do not have the offensive magics necessary to fend off our enemies.

You say, 'what magics'

Ancient Totem says 'There are legends describing scrolls of ultimate power and enlightenment from fallen channelers that preserver the knowledge necessary for us to overcome our plight. Since these are just legends I cannot assure you that these scrolls exist, but at this point they are our only hope.

You say, 'what scrolls'

Ancient Totem says 'The ancient scrolls needed to complete the Tome that will aid us are found in Dragon Necropolis if the legends are true. The tome itself was made up of the incantations and the teachings of the great Lel`Farthok who was a mighty channeler for his time.

There are 4 scrolls in DN which drop from the named lvl 60 rats:

The scrolls are:

scroll of power
scroll of enlightentment
scroll of insight
scroll of knowledge

Turn in all four for your reward.

lvl 55?

It says the minimum level to do this quest is 55...is that true? That would suck, since I already am promised two of the scroll (I'm the only Tunare worshipping Wizard in my guild). I don't wanna have to wait to get this. :(

There is a simple solution to your problem, get 55.

Most , if not all, PoG quests you can not start till 55 as the quest givers will not reply to you when hailed if your under 55
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 10 2001 at 8:51 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) WTF's up with that? High Elves only, that worship Tunare?! What about the awesome gnomes??

Hmm, it's a PoG quest. You know, the Plane that Tunare governs...hence, High Elf Tunare-worshipping wizards. Not many around, but I am one.
The Scrolls equipable?
# Jun 14 2001 at 6:33 PM Rating: Decent
I mean, if they list as giving +8 Wisdom, why aren't they equipable?

I think they'd make awesome range-slot items... but then this dumb quest wouldn't get finished nearly as often. (Which means never... not many Tunarian Wizards out there, after all.)

When is Verant going to make it so that quest-givers only give quests for No Drop items to the classes that can USE those items?

Heck, given that the scrolls all list as having +8 Wis, you'd be led to believe that this was a Cleric and/or Druid's Quest!

Scroll of enlightment - Seeker Bulava
Scroll of insight - Warmaster Utvara
Scroll of power - Vaniki
power and enlightenment

I just realized that in the quest text he says hes looking for scrolls of ultimate power and enlightenment. There are two scrolls called scroll of power and scroll of enlightenment. It could be those are the only ones hes asking for.

Which would mean i'm stuck trying to find out what my scroll of Insight is for :)
Scroll of Insight

Just got this one tonight, anyone know how many scrolls there are to turn in? Or can you just turn in one scroll for a reward? I'll assume you need them all, but it doesn't look like the Ancient Totem gives a number.
Scroll of Knowledge

Found on the 60 Named Rats in DN

The named rats in "rat central" (this is the area that has the big open area with ladders and hoards of rats) drop these scrolls. There are 3 named and they are not are always up. You have to kill rats to make them spawn it seems, although one will usually be up when you arrive. I have seen them spawn in the offshoot caves and then one also popped out in the open they dropped these scrolls. We never did see the third although speculation that Vaniki (named rat that spawns near Zlandicar it seems) may drop the third.

They are level 60 Vaniki is nasty hard to take down and has perhaps 250K.

They have a TON of hps and require a full guild raid to do rat central area, make sure your enchanters are good you'll be fighting often times 3-5 rats at a time many over level 56.



Scrolls

The scrolls are found in the Necropolis, off some lvl 60ish ratmen (reportedly). Turn left at the first T intersection, and they're supposedly on a cave off to the left. I saw the descriptions of them on eq.gameznet.com earlier today. Hope this is enough info to get you going!

Scrolls in Necropolis?

Has anyone obtained the scrolls needed to complete this quest? If so, what are they called?
Thanks.

I was awarded two scrolls this evening from Dragon necropolis off of two level 60 named rats. One is the scroll of knowledge and the other is the scroll of enlightenment, Wonder how many you need for the quest
