Obtaining the Notes
(Note: the Jeb's Seal portion of the quest is not required at this point on Project 1999. You can safely begin at the Enchanter Master One section.)
The first thing you should do is find Stofo Olan. He is on the second floor of the Vasty Deep Inn near the Erudin City Library (Loc: -1100, -60).
Hail him and the conversation is as follows:
- 'Good day, I have discovered something truly wonderful! If I only had the materials required so I can copy my notes and send them to my teacher'.
Ask him 'What materials'
- 'The materials I need are a mechanical pen, ink of the dark, and white paper. Bring me those and I will give you a copy of this information'.
Ask him 'Who is your teacher'
- 'My teacher is Jeb Lumsed. He was last seen in the regions of the newly discovered lands. If you wish to find him that is where you must seek him out'
You then need to gather the three items and bring them back to Stofo Olan: a Mechanical Pen, Ink of the Dark, and the White Paper.The Mechanical Pen can be obtained in Ak'Anon. Rilgor Plegnog (in the Mines of Malfunction) in is the one to ask about the
LORE ITEM NO DROP
WT: 0.1 Size: TINY
Ask him 'What Mechanical Pen'
- 'Why do you want one of those contraptions. You will spend more time repairing it then you will writing with it. But if you insist on getting one, you are going to have to do a small favor.'
Rilgor Plegnog tugs at your robe and grins evilly.
- 'Mighty nice outfit you have there. Sure beats these drab robes us three are wearing. Hmm...my favorite color is purple, in fact a shiny metallic purple would do nicely. How bad did you want that pen?'.
You guessed it, he wants a Shining Metallic Robe (SMR). These are obtained off the Arch Ghoul Magi in the Dead Side of Lower Guk. Rare Spawn and Rare Drop. Once you hand him the SMR he will give you the Mechanical Pen.
To obtain the Ink of the Dark, head on over to Qeynos. Reania Jukle is in the Temple under Qeynos (Loc: 2030, -580).
Ask Reania 'Where Can I find the Ink of the Dark?'
- 'The ink is the blood of a dark scribe. Tempt him and give him this vial. He should cooperate'.
She will then give you an Empty Ink Vial.
From there head to Lower Guk. A ghoul scribe spawns in the Ghoul Sage room (near the Executioner room). Whilst a rare spawn, this shouldn't be too long a camp. Charm the Scribe and hand him the Empty Ink Vial. You will get the Ink of the Dark returned to you.
Then you need to get the White Paper. This part is completed in Western Karana. You will need to bring a paper and a quill and these can be obtained from almost all Enchanter guilds. You need to speak with Chrislin Baker (Loc: 1050, -1990).
Hail her and then give her the paper and quill.
- Chrislin Baker gives you a hug. 'Thank you so much. I did some cleaning after you left and found this behind a barrel. It may have been left behind by the person who took my materials. You can have it'.
You will then get a Bandit Sash.
A Human Monk named Thrackin Griften will then spawn at Loc 880, -11570. Kill him and you and loot the White Paper. This mob is almost totally magic immune and a tough battle. Take a group with some tanks and a cleric.
Head back to Erudin City and return to Stofo (Loc: -1100, -60). Give him the three items and he will say the following:
- 'Yes, that is what I wanted.'
- 'Here, take these notes.'
- 'My teacher will be very interested if he knows what I have found'.
LORE ITEM NO DROP
WT: 1.0 Size: TINY
Now it is time to head over to the Burning Woods and speak with Jeb Lumsed (Loc: -1200, -4000).
Give him the Copy of Notes and he will then talk to you:
- 'I see that you have what I was waiting for. Stofo does do excellent work. It seems that you are to start on a long journey. Take this seal and it will guide you on your next step. Seek out the masters of enchantment. In time we will craft the Serpent for you. When you have collected the four parts of the staff, you must combine them in a bundle for me. If you need a sack, just let me know'.
He will also give you the coin Jeb's Seal.
Tell him 'I need a sack'
- 'Take this sack and combine the items I requested in it. Then return it to me'.
He will then give you an Enchanter's Bag.
Ask him 'Who are the four other masters'
- 'The masters are enchanters who have reached the plateau of understanding. Their names are Modani Qu'Loni, Mizzle Gepple, Nadia Starfeast, and Polzin Mrid. All are master crafters in their own right'.
Ask him 'Who is Modani'
- 'Modani is a master of illusions. You should seek him out first. Keep a careful eye out for him - he is never in his true form. The last time I spoke to him, he seemed very excited about his voyage to the elven outpost. You may or may not find more clues about his location there'.
Ask him 'Who is Mizzle'
- 'Mizzle is a gnome who has mastered the use of enlightened magic. Go to him once you have spoken to Modani. Mizzle is not one to travel, so you should not have to look far from his home to find him'.
Ask him 'Who is Nadia'
- 'The mistress of charm, Nadia is very beautiful. She, too, traveled with her relatives to the new land. I just recently received a letter from her. She says more and more pilgrims and explorers are arriving every day, and that the outpost is well defended now'.
Ask him 'Who is Polzin'
- 'Master of the Phantasms - he is the last one you will seek out. Hmm...Polzin is native to Erudin, however, after the incident near Paineel, no one has heard from him. I hope that he is well'.
Now the fun begins. You have to find the four masters and complete sub-quests for all of them.
Enchanter Master One
First go and locate Modani Qu'Loni in The Overthere (Loc: +540 -940). Modani is in the form of a Scorpikis. Actually getting to Modani can be tricky sometimes as there are other Scorpikis nearby that can make it a challenge. Either kill them, or have someone lure them away so you can speak to Modani.
'Hail Modani Qu`Loni'
- 'The hidden self inside a myriad of magic is one that walks quite softly. Yes, that is what you must seek.'
Give Modani Jeb's Seal.
- 'Ah yes, Jeb's seal. The time to craft a Serpent must have come. I will need components collected to craft the first of the pieces. I will also provide you with a sack in which you must combine the items. Are you ready to collect them?'
'I am ready to collect them.'
- 'Scattered throughout the world are various items. To prove your worth, go collect these and return them to me. The Xolion Rod, Innoruuk's Word, Chalice of Kings, and snow blossoms.'
'I need a sack.'
- 'Take this sack and combine the items I requested in it. Then return it to me. '
You will receive an Enchanter's Bag
'What is the Chalice of Kings?'
- 'The Chalice of Kings is the chalice of elven kings. Recently thought to be lost to the ages, it was recently discovered. I need its magical powers to create a magical liquid.'
'What is the Xolion Rod?'
- 'This is the rod of an ancient civilization found on this continent. Nothing is known of it other than that the scaled ones discovered it years ago.'
'What are Snow Blossoms?'
- 'These are flowers that are also used in the creation process. They were once widespread, but now I am told they only grow in select places.'
'What is Innoruuks Word?'
- 'The strict doctrine of the priests of Innoruuk is used as a material component in the crafting. The power of their hate must not be underestimated.'
Head to Oggok and look for Bozlum Blossom (Loc 540, 1150). Hail her and she will start talking: <Note: This seems to be broken. Just get the sandals and do the hand-in.>
- Bozlum Blossom heaves a great sigh.
Ask her 'What is wrong Bozlum?'
- 'Boz like to grow perty flowers in her garden. But garden no more.'
'What happened to your flower garden?'
- 'Boz not know what happen. Only see der biggins footprints in it. Me perty sure my puppy not smash garden. He has tiny feets. Right, puppy?'
- Bozlum Blossom pet wags his tail.
Go and find Brokk Boxtripper in a hut outside her caves (Loc: 230, 380).
Once you find him, look for a pair of sandals right next to him. Get it and you will see they are called Large Muddy Sandals. Take the sandals back to Bozlum and give it to her. She will give you a Scribbled Parchment and ask that you take it to Brokk.
Go to Brokk and give him the Parchment. He will give you a Gift to Bozlum to make up for messing her garden. Give her the Gift.
- 'Oh, dat silly Brokk. He sent me too many of these perty flowers. Me not know where put them all. Here, you take some cause you help Bozlum. Me like you. Flowers make you smell perty, too'.
She will then give you the Snow Blossoms.
Then get a good group together and head over to Neriak. Inside the Cleric Guild in the Third Gate region you will find Verina Tomb. Verina has a long spawn window of 2-7 days after she dies, and often is not up (some other Enchanter has killed her normally). She is considered one of the few bottlenecks of this epic. You may have to just wait, or pop back now and then to check on her. She is a level 60 Dark Elf Cleric and you can kill her without aggroing the guards (provided you aren't Kill on Sight to the guards) as she is not on any faction and the guards won't assist her.
You will loot Innoruuk's Word off her once she is dead.
The Xolion Rod can be obtained by killing Vessel Drozlin in the Cabilis Shaman guild (Loc: 591, -826.) You will need to swim through the large pool and go through the tunnels. Becareful as this monster is also immune to most magic, and will run through a one way door as the fight progresses. He also has some guards. Take a good high level group (or more if worried). Vessel has an identical spawn window to Verina's and is therefore also somewhat of a bottleneck.
Kill Drozlin and then loot the Xolion Rod.
Now its time to head over to Chardok and head deep inside the dungeon. You have to kill Prince Selrach Di'zok (Loc: -560 +1360). The Prince is a level 61 Warrior and to fight him and clear the path to his room you will need some heavy fighting power. Kill the Prince and loot his head. Then go to Felwithe and look for Joren Nobleheart in the Magician guild.
Hail him and then give him the princes head.
- 'Vengeance has been fufilled! However, the King still has a heavy heart. Not until Firiona has been return can this sadness be lifted. But in appreciation of your efforts, I am honored to present to you the King's Chalice'.
He will then give you the Chalice of Kings.
You will create a new item called a Sack for Modani.
Go back to the Overthere and see Modani once again (Loc: +540 -940). Give him the Sack for Modani.
- 'Excellent, you have done well. Here is the first piece of the staff. Now you must go seek out the second master; he will clear the path for you'.
You will get the 1st Piece of Staff.
Enchanter Master Two
Next you need to find Mizzle Gepple in Ak'Anon (Loc: 2020, -520). Mizzle is hiding as a Clockwork Gnome. You will see him as Clockwork VIIX. Check by asking him if he is Mizzle and he should say he is.
Ask for a sack. Mizzle will then give you another Enchanter's Bag and ask you to collect four different items, a Spoon, the One Key, the Lost Scroll, and the book Charm and Sacrifice. This is a much easier quest than Modani's.
The Spoon is on a named sand giant called Cazel, you can find him in the Oasis of Maar. Whilst he is only level 50 he has ridiculous regen and hits very hard. 2 groups are recommended to kill Cazel, or one very high level group. Kill him and grab the Spoon.
Head on over to to the Overthere on the boat which leaves from the Oasis dock. On the top of a little ledge at Loc: -190, -380 you should find the key. The key spawns once every 24 hours.
The Lost Scroll is at the bottom of Dalnir's Crypt. Go to Loc -20, 50. You will see a bed next to a wall. The scroll will spawn between the bed and the wall every 24 hours.
The Book of Charm and Sacrifice is in the Plane of Sky on a table in the quest room at Loc: 1300, 560. The book spawns once every 24 hours. Buy Veeshan's Key from the Key Master on island 1 to click down to the quest room.
Put the Spoon, the One Key, the Lost Scroll, and the Book of Charm and Sacrifice in the Enchanter's Bag Mizzle previously gave you and combine them. You will get a Sack for Mizzle.
Give this back to Mizzle Gepple in Ak'Anon (Loc: 2020, -520).
- 'Oh excellent, you have done what is required. Here take this part, and seek the third master, you are well on your way'.
He will then give you the 2nd Piece of Staff.
Enchanter Master Three
Nadia Starfeast has your next sub-quest. Head over to Firiona Vie to Loc: -3870, 2525 (be careful of your faction here, you may need to raise it if you are kill on sight by killing goblins in Warslik Woods).
Hail her and ask for a sack. She will give you another Enchanter's Bag and ask that you obtain the essence of four different stones: a Dull Diamond, a Dull Sapphire, a Dull Ruby, and a Dull Emerald.
To obtain these you will need to transform them into enchanted versions of the gems. To do so, you will need to charm a few different creatures.
- 'I have prepared some gems that you will need to trap the essence. You will need to force a diamond, sapphire, ruby and emerald onto special creatures to obtain their essence.
- 'Here is the diamond that I have prepared for you. Its only purpose is to trap the essence of a particular book worm. If you should fail in your first attempt. Do not worry, I will provide you with another.
- 'Here is the sapphire that I have prepared for you. Take it and give it to the one referred to as the Golden Faerie.
- 'Blood red is the ruby that I have given you. The city that you must travel to has no sun, but still a day and night. And at night, the mist could suffocate one. Tis the fate of poor Jaxion.
- Nadia Starfeast jumps. 'Eeekk... a scorpian. I thought they rid this area of these critters. Those things give me the creepers. Take this emerald and be on your way.'
To obtain the Enchanted Diamond go to Kaesora. You need to get to Loc: 85, -415. It is quite easy to get there. Once you enter Kaesora, cast levitate and invis, and go straight forwards and drop down the hole. Don't go all the way down - just keep heading straight ahead onto the ledge in front of you. Turn left at the first tunnel and enter the room with the two to three spiders and turn right and go through that door. Directly behind that door there is a secret wall which you go through then just before you hit the corner, cast invis vs. undead. Keep moving forward down the ramp and enter the building you see when you go round the corner.
Here you will find either a Spectral Librarian or a Tortured Librarian (placeholder). Other undead are placeholders as well. This part may take a while. Also, be careful because the frenzied gnawler down there is live, and will see thru your IVU. Kill the Tortured Librarian (and other undead PHs) until the Spectral Librarian spawns. Then charm him and give him the Dull Diamond. He will then give you the Enchanted Diamond and turn into a Enraged Spectral Librarian. If you kill this spawn it will turn into two to six Freed Souls which cast some nasty area Area Effect spells (Freed Souls AOE's are 500dmg each if not resisted). They have almost no hitpoints though but take them out quick. They are an optional extra you can gate out once you have the Enchanted Diamond if you like.
Then head to the City of Mist and look for the Wraith of Jaxion. It spawns right up the back in Neh'Ashiir's building near the Reaver. It is a rare spawn. If it is not there, keep killing everything near there until it does. Then charm it and hand the Dull Ruby. You will get the Enchanted Ruby.
Head to The Overthere. Look for a scorpikis called Impaler Tzilug at Loc: -27, 1359. He is inside the temple which leads to Charasis (Howling Stones) but go left instead and down to the bottom. He is in a room with 4 Defenders plus a roaming defender on the ramp. Charm the Impaler (like Modani this might mean killing some other NPC's first or getting someone to train them away) and give him the Dull Emerald. In return, he will give you the Enchanted Emerald.
Now head to Skyfire and look for the a tiny Chromodac called Felia Goldenwing near the Burning Woods zone. Felia is another rare spawn and you might have to kill a bunch of other placehoder spawns to trigger her. Once she does spawn, quickly charm her and avoid taking her anywhere near other Skyfire spawns. Other mobs will kill her on sight. After you charm Felia, hand her the Dull Sapphire and she will give you an Enchanted Sapphire.
Combine the Enchanted Diamond, Enchanted Sapphire, Enchanted Ruby, and Enchanted Emerald in the Enchanter's Bag Nadia gave you. You will create a new item called a Sack for Nadia.
Give Nadia back her new sack.
- 'Excellent, you have done what is required. Here take this part, and seek the fourth master, to complete your quest'.
She will then give you the 3rd Piece of Staff.
Enchanter Master Four
Next head to The Hole and find Polzin Mrid (Loc: 210, -50).
'Hail Polzin Mrid!'
- 'Yes, young one?
Give Polzin Mrid Jeb's Seal.
- 'Jeb has spoken with you already, excellent. Tell me are you ready for the test of the phantasm?
You receive Jeb's Seal back.
- 'I am ready for the test of the phantasm'
- 'It will be simple, go collect these items and return them to me. Head of a serpent, essence of a ghost, essence of a vampire, and sands of the mystics. Do so and you will receive the last of the pieces. Be sure to combine them in a sack first. Just ask and I will provide you with one.
'What is the head of a serpent?'
- 'Serpent is probably not an accurate term form what you must return to me. It is actually the remnants of a spirit. The spirit is one which was eradicated long long ago by the Iksar. I believe they were called the Shissar. You may need to travel to the Iksar city to learn more about these creatures.
'What is the essence of a ghost?'
- 'You don't have to look for to find roaming spirits. One in particular though has more meaning then the other sorry souls trapped here. You see, Kindle was a dear friend of mine. I came in search of him when he stopped writing. Wel....look at me now. I fear that I have succumbed to the same fate as poor Kindle.
'What is the essence of a vampire?'
- 'The essence of a vampire is just that. Only the most powerful of these creatures will possess what you need.
'What sands of the mystics?'
- 'They are sands that were imbued with the magical might of the mystics. Mystics use a ritual involving their own blood to create a powerful bond with the sand. One will need to search the shores.
You should get the Essence of a Ghost first since it is found in The Hole as well. You must look for the Ghost of Kindle, a spawn in between the city and Master Yael's lair (take a couple of groups). Kill her get the Essence of a Ghost.
The Head of a Serpent is found in the Plane of Fear. The Spirit of Shissar can be found in the Amygdalan Temple. It's on a 5-7 day timer. The Shissar itself is actually extremely easy, the hard part is breaking fear and getting to it. Kill it and loot the Head of the Serpent.
The Essence of a Vampire is found in the Plane of Hate. They are a rare drop by Forsaken Revenants (mainly in the north east corner of the zone).
Then head to the Field of Bone and look for The Tangrin (Loc: 3300, 2530). A rare spawn Gorilla Warrior - this is a fun fight for a couple of high level groups. Kill The Tangrin and loot the Sands of the Mystics.
Put the four items in the Enchanter's Bag Polzin gave you and when combined you will get a Sack for Polzin.
Give Polzin the sack.
- 'Excellent, you have done what is required. Here take this part, and return to Master Jeb Lumsed'.
He will then give you the 4th Piece of Staff.
Completing the Quest
Return to Burning Woods and look for Jeb Lumsed (Loc: -1200, -4000). Find him and make sure you have an Enchanter's Bag. If you don't have it you will need to get another Seal and give it to a master again to get another bag. Now put all four Pieces of Staff in your Enchanter's Bag and hit the combine button. You will create a new item called Bundle of Staves.
Give the Bundle of Staves to Jeb Lumsed.
- 'The path you trod was long and hard. Now you are worthy to bear the Serpent. Use it well'.
Congratulations on your Staff of the Serpent!
