You say, 'Hail, Gelidalin Stormsinger'
Gelidalin Stormsinger says, 'Ah, wonderful. I have need of a hero. You are one of Norrath's heroes, [correct]?'

You say, 'correct'

Gelidalin Stormsinger says, 'Great! You are, I am sure, aware that there is likely to be a conflagration soon. The Combine are very angry with Talendor and his sarnak. I am certain that they will use their power, and heroes such as you, to deal a devastating blow against the Ring of Scale. Before that happens there are a few things that could be done to [help] everyone.'

You say, 'help'

Gelidalin Stormsinger says, 'Well I have discovered several routes that I can see to ensuring that not all things are [lost] after the conflict. There is at least one ancient [mystery] in that grand temple that I would hate to leave unexplored before the battles begin in earnest. I may even have discovered a way to gain a [leg up] in the coming battle. Of course I cannot do this myself, I am but a humble musician and story teller. I need the [assistance] of a hero.'

You say, 'assistance'

Gelidalin Stormsinger says, 'I don't have anything in mind for you to do at the moment.'

You have been assigned the task 'Singing Stone'.



  • 1. Find the singing stone in Veeshan's Peak and give it to Gelidalin. 0/1 Skyfire Mountians

    Lava-hardened Stone is a ground spawn in the lava that looks like a rock. At zone-in room look NE between the two exits,it moves so it may not be in the same spot. Keep in mind the lava does do damage, and be invis to not aggro the basilisk. Also try Jump in the lava with no lev - while floating at the top layer of lava, scroll in to 1st person view - you can now see the ground underneath the lava without the lava interfering. Scan for stone,

    Return to and Turn it in to Gelidalin.


  • 2. Find the singing stone in Veeshan's Peak. 0/1 (Veeshan's Peak)

    Grey Crystal will be put on your cursor after killing basilisk or wyvern mobs and (a primeval chromatic skywing) in a specific area. (north Island surrounded by Lava room).


  • 3. Give the Singing Stone to Gelidalin. 0/1 (Skyfire Mountains)

    Return to and Turn it in to Gelidalin.


  • 4. Find the Singing Stone in Veeshan's Peak and give it to Gelidalin. 0/1 (Veeshan's Peak)

    This phase can take over an hour to update.. Confirmed ways to update it in less than a minute: A) Swim around SLOWLY in the lava in the NW part of bridge room, NOT Kluzen's room. When you get emotes " You hear a faint hissing sound carrying through the lava." and "The hissing seems very close now. ", stop immediately, wait and look around the lava for a rock (Hardened Stone), this is a ground spawn in the lava around where you were emoted. Keep in mind the lava does do damage. B) Cast invisibility, jump down to lava from the eastern side of the bridge. C) Jump down to lava from /loc 1890, 880.
    Rogues can do this part fast solo, no killing required.

    I got the two emotes and then my group got involved in combat. When I went back, I could never find the stone. After an hour, I had the entire group camp. When I came back, I got the emotes a second time and found the stone right away.

    Just a possible help if you're convinced the stone isn't there after the two emotes. It may only be up for a certain period (seems to have been true in my case). In any event, I got emotes a second time and found stone after camping out and camping back in.

    This step was a total pain. After wading in the lava just at the ramp, we finally got the first emote. Got the second emote in the east side of the pool right near the pillar after waiting 15 minutes.
    "easy" way to find 1st stone

    Jump in the lava with no lev - while floating at the top layer of lava, scroll in to 1st person view - you can now see the ground underneath the lava without the lava interfering. Scan for stone, if you do not see, back to 3rd person, swim down and through lava (or i guess you could lev and just run a few steps) until at a new vantage point, repeat. Eventually, you will see stone clear as day. Point yourself toward it and swim down to it slowly until it comes into view. It took me about 3 or 4 minutes to find and get the stone in this way.

    I struggled with this task for 2 hours, until I found a post from someone that said to swim slowly (which is unnerving to do when you are being cooked by lava) and got it within the first pass under the bridge in the far NW corner of the zone. Got the emote (finally) and within a few seconds the rock appeared. (Which also is called a Hardened Stone, by the way) Its a large grey rock (bigger than a bowling ball) and is easy to see.

    If you're having trouble getting the final step emotes, click off levitate(s) spells. We were swimming around the lava for damn near an hour and nothing. I clicked off levitate and I'd estimate about 2 minutes and got the updates and found the stone. Might just be a coincidence though.

    tried twice to get this mission done. can not get the last emote and ground spawn to work. another group had similar problem. petitioned and got a response sounding like "nothing I can do about it and will forward the issue to tec crew" Thought they could update things ..they could look at the log and see we did it?

    Uploaded it tonight. Yes it does look like a red crystal in the lava. I found it SW, so basically zone in, turn around and it's right below the railing in the lava.

    The 2nd "singing stone" is Grey Crystal https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=132259

    The 3rd "singing stone" is https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=132556

    There was 4 steps

    1. Find and turn in
    2. Find
    3. Turn in
    4. Find and turn in

    It doesn't make sense, but that's how it was listed.

    Step 1 requires a Lava-hardened Stone. The icon looks like a red crystal. It's in the lava near the zone-in.
