DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Characters that were created after Patch Version 1.79 do not receive this Epic quest.

This is the level 40 Academy Epic Quest.

It starts off at your trainer, who tells you that Master Vismer is in need of you again.

When you go to talk to Master Vismer he gives you a scroll and asks you to find a tower in Camp Forest. The tower is that of the Lethanis Association and when you step onto the East Platform (North Platform has been mentioned as well.), you are teleported to Snowdonia, a few paces from where Lady Nimue spawns.

Give the scroll you received from Vismer and Lady Nimue tells you that your next step is to retrieve the Staff of Enlightenment from Cornwall where is resides in the hands of a long lost emperor.

Travel to Cornwall and the Catacombs and work your way down to the Forgotten Emperor (near /loc 25069, 27129.) When you kill him you receive the Staff of Enlightenment.

In order to proceed you must wield the Staff, whereupon it tells you to go to Lethanis to find out what comes next. When you get to Lethanis, stand on the North Platform and the Staff tells you to travel to the Teleport Platform in Forest Sauvage.

Traveling there gets the Staff to tell you that the Arc of Ages you are looking for is in Hadrian�s Wall guarded by undead Roman Centurions. Or you stand on the north platform with the scroll and the east with the staff. We have gotten reports of both ways. Could be different for each class.

Travel to Hadrian�s Wall and along the road is the fallen aqueduct (NEW FRONTIERS loc=32k,13k). One of the fallen pieces looks like a perfect Arc. Around it will be 5 undead Centurions. There is no need to fight them. If you can survive for 5 seconds, standing underneath the Arc will kill the Cents. After they are dead the Staff will be replaced by a Tome of Summoning. Take the Tome to Master Vismer and he rewards you with a Weapon of your choosing.

For Minstrels, we had a choice between a Thrusting or a Slashing weapon. The Slashing weapon is known as Deathtale.

Rewards:
Mistrel-- Deathtale
Sorceror -- Staff of Body Manipulation, Staff of Matter Manipulation, Staff of Mind Manipulation
Wizard -- Staff of Earthen Delight, Staff of Frozen Tears, Lusterous Staff of the Leaping Flame

Rewards:
  Deathtale
  Staff of the Leaping Flame
  Staff of Frozen Tears
  Staff of Earthen Delight
  Staff of Mind Manipulation
  Staff of Matter Manipulation
  Staff of Body Manipulation
  Songsworn

Where Forgotten Emperor Is
# Jun 25 2005 at 1:12 PM Rating: Decent
Found the forgotten emperor in Catacombs close to /loc 25069, 27129. Supposedly he is in the Catacombs until your toon reaches level 46. From level 46 and up he may be found supposedly west of the Catacombs. However, I haven't tried looking for him at level 46 and above. I did find him at this location at level 45.

Wow, I tried this and almost made it but encountered creatures way beyong what a lvl 40 wizzie should have to see! :-)

I may have gone a route that is just not realistic- Castle Sauvage, North through the Forest and the Pennine Mountains.

Is there a route that is safer, like East from Snowdonia? It seems like walking is the only option and I have yet to find a route that I can survive.

Thanks!

I did this quest with a few short cuts.....After I got the scroll from the master I went straight to the lady of the lake in Avalon Marsh and give it to her, she spawns at night. Then straight to the catacombs. If you are a wizard stay on the ramp that leads into his area and pick them off one at a time, i shoot his 2 guards then him. They didnt BAF on me from there. Take out the forgotten emperior and you will have his staff. If you enter the room they will attack you in a group. You shouldnt have to. Take the staff to the east wing of Lethantis Tower hold it and then off to the port pad at Savauge hold it again, then off to the wall.
go find Lady Nimue instead

go to the bestiary and find the /loc for Lady Nimue. I just did that instead of trying to get the teleport msg to work from the Lethantis Tower.

-Notes from 1.63 Patch-
- Lady Nimue will now spawn in the following locations for the times listed below.

Avalon Marsh - NIGHT ONLY spawn.
Camp Forest - DAY ONLY spawn.
Snowdonia - DAY ONLY spawn.


I have only used the Camp Forest Lady Nimue for quests, she tends to spawn a little after midnight in game. YOu can find her along the banks of the lake, she has a pulsating torch spell around her that shoots into the sky. A pretty good beacon.

I stood on the North platform and waited until about midnight and the message pops up. Lady Nimue only pops at night so I guess you will just have to wait until night to be teleported.

You have to go on the North platform of Lethantis DURING THE NIGHT! It's near midnight that you will have the pop up box appearing!

Good luck for the rest.

their was an invisible barrier to the north steps for me but walking round the base of the tower (on the ground) worked for me. I chose mind staff, basically its a crappy focus staff with 33 hits. Not as good as the sorcerers slender ebony staff from the Barrows, so i doubt if ill even use it :/, dissapointed

O.k according to the instructions that I got from this particular website..I walked onto the East Platform..but it didn't teleport me anywhere...Am I suppose to go get the amulet of the planes or is there a certain time that I should be ported???
RE: Lethantis
# Jul 15 2002 at 12:26 PM Rating: Default
I copied this from below.... =\


You need to slowly walk up the steps of the platform (for wizards it says north) so that a dialogue box appears telling you that you are about to be teleported, then just click accept. If you walk the steps and it doesn't appear try again, just do it slow enough for it to activate.

Same here I had to walk S-L-O-W-L-Y up the steps several times. Finally I took the steps 1 at a time walking diagonally and the message box "You are about to be teleported...Accept/Decline" Naturally hitting accept sent me to Snowdonia and the Lady Nimue. Needless to say being alone trying to make my way back I died. Now on to the Catacombs!

It is also the north for Sorcerers. I had to go up the steps slowly four times before it worked.
