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.'
Crusader Vraket expects you to show the strength of Rallos Zek. This time you will explore fortifications.
In Eastern Wastes explore the giant fort, orc fort, and entrance to Kael. In the great divide [sic], make a detailed exploration of the giant fort and take a look at the entrance to Thurgadin and one of the small dwarven fortifications near there.
(The first nine (9) steps are immediately visible and can be done in any order.)
- Explore and intact corner of the giant fort. 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)
Updates in the southeast corner inside the giant fort, at about 843.11, 1256.72, -35.84.
- Explore the fallen wall in the giant fort 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)
Updates inside the giant fort in the northwest corner at the broken wall, at about 1373.68, 1537.81, -32.21.
- Explore an intact entrance of the orc fort 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)
Updates on the north side of the orc fort at the doorway, at about 357.45, -8.53, -63.41.
- Explore a fallen wall in the orc fort 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)
Updates in the southwest corner inside the fort, at about 109.65, 114.61, -19.44.
- Explore the outer entrance to Kael 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)
Updates at the outer large gate before the zone-in to Kael, at about -1058.80, 2072.14, -258.84.
- Explore the weaknesses of the giant fort. 0/1 (The Great Divide)
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. [sic]
- 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.
Kill Enraged Wyvern who spawns at the dragon circle (druid ring) when you get close.
- Explore the entrance to Thurgadin. 0/1 (The Great Divide)
Head to where the waterfall would be for Thurgadin for this update.
- Explore one of the forts near Thurgadin. 0/1 (The Great Divide)
Updates at approximately: -646, -157, -153
- 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)
Found in the NW part of the zone.
- Kill 10 Kodiak. 0/10 (The Great Divide)
Found in the southern part of the zone.
- Kill 7 Wurm. 0/7 (The Great Divide)
Found in the caves in the central part of the zone.
- Kill 30 Restless Dead. 0/30 (The Great Divide)
Any NPC in zone that has the word "restless" in its 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 (All)
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)
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)
- Collect 7 Glowing Crystallized Velium(s) 0/7 (The Great Divide)
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.
- Create 2 Powdered Glowing Crystallized Velium(s) using tradeskills 0/2 (All)
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 than 7 Glowing at the same time. If you fail the combine you are left with 5 crystals and 2 crushed. Re combine the 4 crystals with the hammer and the leather padding and the hammer and you'll get 2 more crystals to get a total of 4 with one remaining.)
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)
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)
- Create 1 Resilient Combatant's Earring of Rallos Zek or Resilient Supplicant's Earring of Rallos Zek using tradeskills 0/1 (All)
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.
