Third in the ToV TS earring quest series.

You must have completed all Mercenary achievements for ToV and TS earring Quest #2 Orcs on Ice (including evolving your earring to the second evolving level) to request this task.

Prerequisites: Orcs on Ice, Completed Blooded Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek, Mercenary of Crystal Caverns, Mercenary of Kael Drakkel, Mercenary of The Eastern Wastes, Mercenary of The Great Divide, Mercenary of The Ry`Gorr Mines, Mercenary of The Tower of Frozen Shadow, Mercenary of Velketor's Labyrinth.

You say, 'Hail, Crusader Vraket'

Crusader Vraket Stares at you.

You say, 'All Hail Rallos Zek'

Crusader Vraket says, 'All Hail Rallos Zek. It looks like you have blooded the earring. Good. As part of the next step you learn about the elements of the symbol of Rallos Zek We start with [the foundation].'

You say, 'the foundation'

You have been assigned the task 'The Foundation'.

Crusader Vraket says, 'Within the holy symbol of Rallos Zek, there is a foundation. The foundation represents fortresses and fortifications. The strength and protections they offer in war. Go out into these frozen wastes and the Great Divide and explore the fortifications there.'




(The first nine (9) steps are immediately visible and can be done in any order.)

  • 1. Explore and intact corner of the giant fort. 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Task Window Says: ?
    Updates in the southeast corner inside the giant fort, at about 843.11, 1256.72, -35.84.


  • 2. Explore the fallen wall in the giant fort 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Task Window Says: ?
    Updates inside the giant fort in the northwest corner at the broken wall, at about 1373.68, 1537.81, -32.21.


  • 3. Explore an intact entrance of the orc fort 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Task Window Says: ?
    Updates on the north side of the orc fort at the doorway, at about 357.45, -8.53, -63.41.


  • 4. Explore a fallen wall in the orc fort 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Task Window Says: ?
    Updates in the southwest corner inside the fort, at about 109.65, 114.61, -19.44.


  • 5. Explore the outer entrance to Kael 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Task Window Says: ?
    Updates at the outer large gate before the zone-in to Kael, at about -1058.80, 2072.14, -258.84.


  • 6. Explore the weaknesses of the giant fort. 0/1 (The Great Divide)

    Task Window Says: ?
    This is a 5-part step. The updates are all around the fort:

    -1651.27, -1855.46, 76.91 (top of wall in NE Corner);
    -1659.92, -1619.10, 51.45 (north side door to fort);
    -2077.49, -1384.61, -12.61 (middle west door to fort);
    -2393.56, -1405.56, -22.15 (southwestern door to fort);
    -2389.17, -1712.63, 1.12 (top of wall in SE corner of fort).

    Upon the 5th update you see an emote:

    This fortification has too many opening, and the mountain to the back is traversable. The defense will be difficult and consume significant giant resources.

    (Yes, this is exactly how it is spelled / worded in game.)


  • 7. Explore the dragon circle. 0/1 (The Great Divide)

    Task Window Says: ?
    As you start to enter the doorway into the Dragon Circle, in the area -2333.21, 2191.93, -319.95, you will see:

    Enraged Wyvern says, 'The Claws of Veeshan reject your presence. We know you bring war in the name of Rallos Zek. Begone from our lands!'

    The Enraged Wyvern is Level 118 and you have to kill it for the update. I cannot say if you will get multiple spawns if multiple players, who are at this same point, approach the trigger spot. This is because I had the other player with me stay away from the trigger spot while the first one was killed. I can verify however, that killing the one Enraged Wyvern also updated the other player who hung back... so credit appears to be group wide for anyone at the same point.

    Kill Enraged Wyvern who spawns at the dragon circle (druid ring) when you get close.


  • 8. Explore the entrance to Thurgadin. 0/1 (The Great Divide)

    Task Window Says: ?


  • 9. Explore one of the forts near Thurgadin. 0/1 (The Great Divide)

    Task Window Says: ?


  • 10. Speak with Crusader Vraket about [fortification strengths and weaknesses]. 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    Task Window Says: ?
    You say, 'Hail, Crusader Vraket'

    Crusader Vraket says, 'Tell me what you learned about [fortifications].'

    You say, ' Fortifications offer support to troops, but are not foolproof. Walls need a certain thickness to be effective, but going overboard costs time and money. Placement and access is important. Choose your location wisely and don't allow too much access.'

    Your task 'The Foundation' has been updated.

    Crusader Vraket says, 'Though brief that is a concise explanation, and I believe you learned the intended lesson. Fortifications are a foundation, and thus they will be a foundation in your earring. Go out and prove your prowess. While you're out, collect velium infused logs.'


  • 11. Kill 10 Tizmak. 0/10 (The Great Divide)

    Task Window Says: ?


  • 12. Kill 10 Kodiak. 0/10 (The Great Divide)

    Task Window Says: ?


  • 13. Kill 7 Wurm. 0/7 (The Great Divide)

    Task Window Says: ?


  • 14. Kill 30 Restless Dead. 0/30 (The Great Divide)

    Task Window Says: ?
    Pull and kill Wurms, Kodiak, Tizmak and / or any MOB with "restless" in their name. As a side note, Wurms and some of the Tizmak do have "restless" in their name. However, they will not count towards the "restless" step until after you have completed the Wurm and / or Tizmak step(s).


  • 15. Collect 8 Velium infused Log(s). 0/8 (All)

    Task Window Says: ?
    These can be pre-looted, but do not auto-update. Since the zone is listed as The Great Divide, while in that zone do a trade / cancel with another player / pet / merc for the update... or just loot them.


  • 16. Create 1 Velium Wood Chisel using tradeskills. 0/1 (All)

    Task Window Says: Create a velium wood chisel. using a fletching table, chose among eight velium infused lumber, shape it with a round chisel from a Chisel Set, and harden it with fire from a gnomish heat source.


    Turn your eight (8) Velium Infused Logs into eight (8) Velium Infused Planks. - (Recipe)

    8x Velium Infused Plank, 1x Gnomish Heat Source, 1x Chisel Set in a Fletching Table, Trivial 300 to make Velium Wood Chisel. - (Recipe)


  • 17. Collect 7 Glowing Crystallized Velium(s) 0/7 (The Great Divide)

    Task Window Says: Collect 7 glowing velium from the deepest mining cave taken over by the restless dead. You'll need to use your Velium Wood Chisel to break off a chunk with the correct fracture line and you'll only be able to get one from each crystal or cluster of crystals.


    Go to the very last room in the cave in the southeast part of the zone. It has been taken over by the restless dead so you'll need invis vs undead there. You'll need to equip your Velium Wood Chisel as well to break off a chunk with the correct fracture line and you'll only be able to get one from each crystal or cluster of crystals. Once you get near a crystal where you can break a chunk off that's not near a Coldain, you'll see the emote "You break off a piece of glowing crystallized velium." If coldains are near the crystals you'll see an emote that it's not safe to get a crystal due to nearby enemies. Once you get the right emote you will have 1 Glowing Crystallized Velium on your cursor. Each cluster can only be used once.


  • 18. Create 2 Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium(s) using tradeskills 0/2 (All)

    Task Window Says: Crush all the glowing crystallized velium until you have four measures of crushed crystallized glowing velium. Crush those again until you have two measures of powdered crystallized glowing velium. You'll need to do this in a forge with a smithy hammer. Use superb leather padding to help be sure you don't leave sharp edges. If you fail any of these steps, you might have remaining parts. Crush them as well using the same method until you have two powders. Do what you wish with the extras, especially if you salvage some of the velium.


    Crushed Glowing Crystallized Velium - (1x Velium Smithy Hammer, 1x Superb leather Padding, 7x Glowing Crystallized Velium), yield 4 in a Forge, trivial 200 - (Recipe)
    (important : don't use the alternate recipe using 4x Glowing that yields only 2 Crushed, or you will have to start the task again, since you can't have more than7 Glowing at the same time !)

    then either

    Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium - 1x Velium Smithy Hammer, 1x Superb Leather Padding, 4x Crushed Glowing Crystalized Velium , yield 2 in a forge, trivial 350- (Recipe)
    -or-
    Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium- 1x Velium Smithy Hammer, 1x Superb Leather Padding, 2x Crushed Glowing Crystalized Velium , yield 1 in a forge, trivial 350 - (Recipe)


  • 19. Create 1 Resilient Combatant's Earring of Rallos Zek or Resilient Supplicant's Earring of Rallos Zek using tradeskills 0/1 (All)

    Task Window Says:It's time to create the next step of your earring. remember the strength that fortifications add to an army. Improve your forceful earring of Rallos Zek with two powdered glowing crystallized velium, a vial of purified mana, and either an emblem of the combatant or emblem of the supplicant, depending on your class. When you go out to bloody it, complete all quests within Velious.


    First off, remove the augs from your current earring.

    Secondly, be wary of which earring you make!

    The required Emblems are vendor sold in Crystal Caverns.

    Resilient Combatant's Earring of Rallos Zek - 1x Blooded Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek, 1x Emblem of the Combatant, 2 x Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium, 1x Vial of Purified Mana in a jewelry table, trivial 482 - (Recipe)

    -or-

    Resilient Supplicant's Earring of Rallos Zek - 1x Blooded Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek, 1x Emblem of the Supplicant, 2 x Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium, 1x Vial of Purified Mana in a jewelry table, trivial 482 - (Recipe)

    If you attempt to make the wrong earring for your class you will get the message "This seems correct but something is wrong. Perhaps you need to know something more in order to combine this."

    Upon a successful combine, the quest ends and you see: "Show your strength and drench your earring in the blood of your enemies."



    Reward(s):
    425 platinum!

    -1659.92, -1619.10, 51.45 (north side door to fort);

    -2389.17, -1712.63, 1.12 (top of wall in SE corner of fort).

    This fortification has too many opening, and the mountain to the back is traversable. The defense will be difficult and consume significant giant resources.

    (Yes, this is exactly how it is spelled / worded in game.)

    >>Kill 10 Tizmak 0/10 The Great Divide
    >>Kill 10 Kodiak 0/10 The Great Divide
    >>Kill 7 Wurm 0/10 The Great Divide
    >>Kill 30 Restless Dead 0/30 The Great Divide

    Pull and kill Wurms, Kodiak, Tizmak and / or any MOB with "restless" in their name. As a side note, Wurms and some of the Tizmak do have "restless" in their name. However, they will not count towards the "restless" step until after you have completed the Wurm and / or Tizmak step(s).

    >>Collect 8 Velium Infused Log(s) 0/8 The Great Divide

    These can be pre-looted, but do not auto-update. Since the zone is listed as The Great Divide, while in that zone do a trade / cancel with another player / pet / merc for the update... or just loot them.

    >>Create 1 Velium Wood Chisel using tradeskills 0/1 ALL

    The quest window reads: "Create a velium wood chisel. using a fletching table, chose among eight velium infused lumber, shape it with a round chisel from a Chisel Set, and harden it with fire from a gnomish heat source."

    First, turn your eight (8) Velium Infused Logs into eight (8) Velium Infused Plank. The recipe is a Planing Tool (returned), Basic Sandpaper and a Velium Infused Log inside a Fletching kit / table (Fletching 423), which produces one (1) Velium Infused Plank. This will take eight successful combines.

    The Chisel Set is sold in Crystal Caverns by Sandrice Gemheart, so you will have to go buy one.

    Next up, inside a Fletching Kit / Table (Fletching 300), combine: Chisel Set (returned), 8x Velium Infused Plank (7 are returned) and a Gnomish Heat Source, to make a Velium Wood Chisel.

    >>Collect 7 Glowing Crystalized Velium(s) 0/7 ALL

    The Quest window reads: "Collect 7 glowing velium from the deepest mining cave taken over by the restless dead. You'll need to use your Velium Wood Chisel to break off a chunk with the correct fracture line and you'll only be able to get one from each crystal or cluster of crystals."

    It is curious that this step says "ALL" zones, as there appears to be only one place to do this, and that is in The Great Divide at the mine/caves on the southeast wall of the zone (populated by undead Coldain). Go to the very last room in the mine (this is the only area you can get what you are after) and equip your Velium Wood Chisel. Invis Vs. the Undead works here, but be wary of any named.

    Once done, simply walk over a crystal and you will likely see an emote that says it is not safe to try and get a crystal due to enemies nearby (sorry, I didn't note the exact emote). You may notice all but one crystal has a Coldain standing by it.

    If you walk over that one free crystal, you will see:

    "You break off a piece of glowing crystallized velium."

    Upon which, a "Glowing Crystalized Velium" will appear on your cursor.

    If you have help, you can clear MOB's around the crystals until you have collected seven (7) of them. Or, if you don't have the help, camp on the free crystal (with IVU). Upon logging back in you will get another crystal and an update. Keep doing this until you have seven (7) of them.

    >>Create 2 Powdered Glowing Crystalized Velium using tradeskills 0/2 ALL

    The Quest window reads: "Crush all the glowing crystallized velium until you have four measures of crushed crystallized glowing velium. Crush those again until you have two measures of powdered crystallized glowing velium. You'll need to do this in a forge with a smithy hammer. Use superb leather padding to help be sure you don't leave sharp edges. If you fail any of these steps, you might have remaining parts. Crush them as well using the same method until you have two powders. Do what you wish with the extras, especially if you salvage some of the velium."

    The first combine is:

    Velium Smithy Hammer (returned), 7x Glowing Crystallized Velium, Superb Leather Padding (returned) (Smithing 200). You should get four (4) Crushed Glowing Crystallized Velium, if successful. I can't speak to what you get if you fail.

    The second combine is:

    Velium Smith Hammer (returned), 4x Crushed Glowing Crystallized Velium, Superb Leather Padding (Smithing 300). If successful you should get two (2) Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium. I can't speak to what you get if you fail.

    >>Create 1 Resilient Combatant's Earring of Rallos Zek or Resilient Supplicant's Earring of Rallos Zek using tradeskills 0/1 ALL

    The Quest window reads: "It's time to create the next step of your earring. remember the strength that fortifications add to an army. Improve your forceful earring of Rallos Zek with two powdered glowing crystallized velium, a vial of purified mana, and either an emblem of the combatant or emblem of the supplicant, depending on your class. When you go out to bloody it, complete all quests within Velious."

    First off, remove the augs from your current earring.

    Secondly, be wary of which earring you make!

    The required Emblems are vendor sold in Crystal Caverns.

    In a Jewelry Kit (Jewelry 482), combine your Blooded Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek, a Vial of Purified Mana, 2x Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium and the correct Emblem for your class (Emblem of the Combatant or Emblem of the Supplicant).

    On fail, you get back your Blooded Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek and 2x Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium.

    Upon a successful combine, the quest ends and you see: "Show your strength and drench your earring in the blood of your enemies."

    Reward: 425 Platinum and experience. I got 13 AA's with AA's set to 53%.

    Now, time to wear your earring and get it to 100% once more.

    -2389.17, -1712.63, 1.12 (top of wall in SE corner of fort).

    Upon the 5th update you see an emote:

    This fortification has too many opening, and the mountain to the back is traversable. The defense will be difficult and consume significant giant resources.

    (Yes, this is exactly how it is spelled / worded in game.)

    >>Explore the dragon circle 0/1 The Great Divide

    As you start to enter the doorway into the Dragon Circle, in the area -2333.21, 2191.93, -319.95, you will see:

    Enraged Wyvern says, 'The Claws of Veeshan reject your presence. We know you bring war in the name of Rallos Zek. Begone from our lands!'

    The Enraged Wyvern is Level 118 and you have to kill it for the update. I cannot say if you will get multiple spawns if multiple players, who are at this same point, approach the trigger spot. This is because I had the other player with me stay away from the trigger spot while the first one was killed. I can verify however, that killing the one Enraged Wyvern also updated the other player who hung back... so credit appears to be group wide for anyone at the same point.

    >>Speak with Crusader Vraket about {fortification strengths and weaknesses} 0/1 The Eastern Wastes

    You say, 'Hail, Crusader Vraket'
    Crusader Vraket says, 'Tell me what you learned about [fortifications].'
    You say, ' Fortifications offer support to troops, but are not foolproof. Walls need a certain thickness to be effective, but going overboard costs time and money. Placement and access is important. Choose your location wisely and don't allow too much access.'

    Your task 'The Foundation' has been updated.

    Crusader Vraket says, 'Though brief that is a concise explanation, and I believe you learned the intended lesson. Fortifications are a foundation, and thus they will be a foundation in your earring. Go out and prove your prowess. While you're out, collect velium infused logs.'

    >>Kill 10 Tizmak 0/10 The Great Divide
    >>Kill 10 Kodiak 0/10 The Great Divide
    >>Kill 7 Wurm 0/10 The Great Divide
    >>Kill 30 Restless Dead 0/30 The Great Divide

    Pull and kill Wurms, Kodiak, Tizmak and / or any MOB with "restless" in their name. As a side note, Wurms and some of the Tizmak do have "restless" in their name. However, they will not count towards the "restless" step until after you have completed the Wurm and / or Tizmak step(s).

    >>Collect 8 Velium Infused Log(s) 0/8 The Great Divide

    These can be pre-looted, but do not auto-update. Since the zone is listed as The Great Divide, while in that zone do a trade / cancel with another player / pet / merc for the update... or just loot them.

    >>Create 1 Velium Wood Chisel using tradeskills 0/1 ALL

    The quest window reads: "Create a velium wood chisel. using a fletching table, chose among eight velium infused lumber, shape it with a round chisel from a Chisel Set, and harden it with fire from a gnomish heat source."

    First, turn your eight (8) Velium Infused Logs into eight (8) Velium Infused Plank. The recipe is a Planing Tool (returned), Basic Sandpaper and a Velium Infused Log inside a Fletching kit / table (Fletching 423), which produces one (1) Velium Infused Plank. This will take eight successful combines.

    The Chisel Set is sold in Crystal Caverns by Sandrice Gemheart, so you will have to go buy one.

    Next up, inside a Fletching Kit / Table (Fletching 300), combine: Chisel Set (returned), 8x Velium Infused Plank (7 are returned) and a Gnomish Heat Source, to make a Velium Wood Chisel.

    >>Collect 7 Glowing Crystalized Velium(s) 0/7 ALL

    The Quest window reads: "Collect 7 glowing velium from the deepest mining cave taken over by the restless dead. You'll need to use your Velium Wood Chisel to break off a chunk with the correct fracture line and you'll only be able to get one from each crystal or cluster of crystals."

    It is curious that this step says "ALL" zones, as there appears to be only one place to do this, and that is in The Great Divide at the mine/caves on the southeast wall of the zone (populated by undead Coldain). Go to the very last room in the mine (this is the only area you can get what you are after) and equip your Velium Wood Chisel. Invis Vs. the Undead works here, but be wary of any named.

    Once done, simply walk over a crystal and you will likely see an emote that says it is not safe to try and get a crystal due to enemies nearby (sorry, I didn't note the exact emote). You may notice all but one crystal has a Coldain standing by it.

    If you walk over that one free crystal, you will see:

    "You break off a piece of glowing crystallized velium."

    Upon which, a "Glowing Crystalized Velium" will appear on your cursor.

    If you have help, you can clear MOB's around the crystals until you have collected seven (7) of them. Or, if you don't have the help, camp on the free crystal (with IVU). Upon logging back in you will get another crystal and an update. Keep doing this until you have seven (7) of them.

    >>Create 2 Powdered Glowing Crystalized Velium using tradeskills 0/2 ALL

    The Quest window reads: "Crush all the glowing crystallized velium until you have four measures of crushed crystallized glowing velium. Crush those again until you have two measures of powdered crystallized glowing velium. You'll need to do this in a forge with a smithy hammer. Use superb leather padding to help be sure you don't leave sharp edges. If you fail any of these steps, you might have remaining parts. Crush them as well using the same method until you have two powders. Do what you wish with the extras, especially if you salvage some of the velium."

    The first combine is:

    Velium Smithy Hammer (returned), 7x Glowing Crystallized Velium, Superb Leather Padding (returned) (Smithing 200). You should get four (4) Crushed Glowing Crystallized Velium, if successful. I can't speak to what you get if you fail.

    The second combine is:

    Velium Smith Hammer (returned), 4x Crushed Glowing Crystallized Velium, Superb Leather Padding (Smithing 300). If successful you should get two (2) Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium. I can't speak to what you get if you fail.

    >>Create 1 Resilient Combatant's Earring of Rallos Zek or Resilient Supplicant's Earring of Rallos Zek using tradeskills 0/1 ALL

    The Quest window reads: "It's time to create the next step of your earring. remember the strength that fortifications add to an army. Improve your forceful earring of Rallos Zek with two powdered glowing crystallized velium, a vial of purified mana, and either an emblem of the combatant or emblem of the supplicant, depending on your class. When you go out to bloody it, complete all quests within Velious."

    First off, remove the augs from your current earring.

    Secondly, be wary of which earring you make!

    The required Emblems are vendor sold in Crystal Caverns.

    In a Jewelry Kit (Jewelry 482), combine your Blooded Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek, a Vial of Purified Mana, 2x Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium and the correct Emblem for your class (Emblem of the Combatant or Emblem of the Supplicant).

    On fail, you get back your Blooded Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek and 2x Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium.

    Upon a successful combine, the quest ends and you see: "Show your strength and drench your earring in the blood of your enemies."

    Reward: 425 Platinum and experience. I got 13 AA's with AA's set to 53%.

    Now, time to wear your earring and get it to 100% once more.
