Hail Ernax the Scholar on the first floor of the library in Paineel. He will say leave him be because he his reading about mana storage devices.
Say to him 'I wish to speak to you on a matter of the soul',
and he then says he hasn't heard anyone say that in a while and is surprised that you want to follow the legacy of azraxs.
He then gives you a letter and tells you to follow and write down the instructions on it and then give the letter back to him. Give the letter back to Ernax and you get a Soul Trap Box, a 4 slot container with a combine button. The letter explains how to make a Soul Trap. The needed components are:
- a Bloody Mantle, from a Dark Assassin, which is a level 50 mob that randomly spawns from Faydwer to the Karanas, to Everfrost.
- the Heart of the Pure Druid, from Alania Peaceheart in Gfaydark (loc +1042, +1175), who drops a heart when killed.
- and a Crystal of Capturing, made by Jalen Goldsinger the Tox forest. (Mini quest, see below)
Ernax the Scholar in the Paineel Library asks not to be bothered as he is studying mana storage devices. When asked about a crystal of capturing, he responds that Jalen Goldsinger in the Tox forest can make them. When hailed, Jalen Goldsinger only comments about the murkyness of Tox forest. But when asked about the Heretics or about a Crystal of Capturing, Jalen says that he will make you one if you will bring him some of the components. He requires a Potion of Sorrow and 1000 gold.
The potion of sorrow is obtained from Gorth Bearsoul in Halas. He is the new barbarian in the torch shop who, when hailed, always responds with something about "not bothering a man when he is making potions" or some such.
Ask him about the potion of sorrow and you get:
- "Ach! What ye be needin that fer? Only those of dark magic require such a thing and by my mother, never could i sell to such a soul. If yer soul be clean then put yer (money) in this enchanted pouch and i will know your intent. If yer soul be rotten i'll be known and you'll be dead. Indifferent I better be to your actions."
Following up on the money hint gets you:
- "Suren ye didnae think I'd give ye a potion fer free? I'm needn 500 gold coins to make such an item. Hard to make and few are the uses fer such a potion."
First, give Gorth 500gp and you get the Potion of Sorrow (magic item, lore, no drop). NEXT give the potion and 1000gp to JALEN GOLDSINGER in TOX FOREST for the Crystal.
