Arc of Ages
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.
