DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

04.06.05 Per Patch 1.75:
- Scura tragedia - The summoning circle has been moved to the Salisbury Plains. It is west southwest of Stonehenge Barrows.

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

Must do the Wisdom quest first.

Master Vismer gives you a signet ring and ask that you talk with the scribe Eril, a vassal of Lord Adribard. You will be talking to Eril regarding the lost knowledge of Necromancy.

Eril is found in Adribard's retreat. He stands on top of the tower gazing over the swamp. Target him and ask regarding the undead. He tells you of the list of wizards who have studied necromancy.

Scribe Veral is in Camelot. He informs us that we must find the one who knows the location and incantations for the ritus a potential. We must find Brother Darren in the Vetusta Abbey. Scribe Veral can be found west of the main castle in Camelot.

For the abbey leave Camelot through the north gate and head west. Not to far distant is the compound. Ask Brother Darren of the ritual, but first give him Vismer's ring. This will influence him to tell you of what he knows. He indicates that you must summon a spirit from a circle of stones. This spirit will ask a single question that must be answered. Darren does not know the question or the answer. However, he doesn't know which stone ring must be used. He directs you to Olorustos at the Lethantis Association.

Olorustos indicates to look in a lost tower in Cornwall. Undead speak of necromancers in their mist. There is a summoning circle within a lost tower. The Summoning Circle in Salisbury Plains, loc=11959, 44762. During the night speak "proximare spiritus nonorare". Then ask the spirit of her "list". She will ask a riddle of you before she continues.

The Spirit of the unspoken says, "You seek the unspoken list! We have seen your venture into the darkness, and kow that which keeps my brethren from peace. I shall read the list only should you speak unto me the answer to a [riddle]."

The Spirit of the unspoken says, "The shadow of life passes us, as does the passage of time. When day turns to darkness, time fades into eternity. What then becomes of life?"

The answer to the riddle is "life becomes death."

The Spirit of the unspoken says, "Your words echo within the ears of my brethren, Wizard! Remember what you have learned and do not speak unto others what you hear this day."

The Spirit of the unspoken says, "Vislun, Bernor, Ignuixs, Ablivmu, Arnor, Blaise, Merlin, Ganieda, Viviane, Nimue, Morgana, Elaine, Garlon, Annowre, Byanne"

Once you answer the riddle you must return to Camelot and speak with Master Vismer. He asks for this ring and list to be given back to him. However, he does not require the actual list of wizards given to you by the spirit.

Bracelet of Matter Manipulation -- Sorceror
Band of Earth -- Wizard
Flute of Displacement -- Minstrel

Next is the subquest is La Morti Parla

  Band of Earth
  Bracelet of Matter Manipulation
  Flute of Displacement

I swear it wasn't listed in the body when I posted asking, honest :)

Anyone know what the Minstrel reward for this quest is?
RE: Minstrels?
# May 24 2002 at 7:34 AM Rating: Default
It's the Flute of Displacement: +2 Instruments, +2 Evade. Considering all I use the flute for is mezzing, the evade is a nice side bonus. It's not great, but I'm not complaining. Besides, you need this part to get the next one at level 20.

I will say that dodging the purple beasties that hang around the tower is tricky. As a minstrel, I can only sympathize with those of you without a speed song. :)

I've got to question the sanity of Mythic on this one. Sending a level 15 character into Cornwall is little more than suicide, as everything you have to make it past is at least Yellow to you and most is stone cold purple. I mean- Rooters? Giant Skeletons? OK- maybe you can sneak past them, but then again you are trying to sneak past stuff that is 10+ levels above you. In my case, I waited until level 20 to do it and STILl got obliterated by a rooter/Skellie combo (doesn't take many 150 point hits). Bad concept-bad reward.

I thought the same thing, until I discovered I was trying to get to the wrong tower. Getting to the right tower is considerably easier. I did this quest at 16th lvl, so I think anyone can.

Location of the lost tower is : 39.657, 54.606

Did you take the ring to Brother Darren in the Abbey? He instructs you to go to Lethantis (take a horse from west camelot gates to Camp Forest)and speak to Olorustos. You should receive a "list" in your backpack along with the ring. Remember, you have to actually /say list, etc to the NPC, to get a response. Clicking on them doesn't work. It tells you to "ask".
Lost Tower

Best way to get there at level 15 is by way of Catacombs. Follow the road until you can see catacombs on your left. Head up the hill towards the dungeon and pass by it. U will see the tower in the valley past the dungeon. If you try to go up the road where the skellies are, wolves, pigs, boogies, boars, skellies all camp the way to the tower. I didn't have to even hesitate when running past Catacombs and down to the tower but died twice trying to get there past the villa.

Making It A Little Easier

When you find that path leading south from the main road in Cornwall, don't follow it; there are paired Skeletal Centurions at regular intervals along the road. Instead, follow the ridge wall all the way south until you come to the southernmost zone wall. Watch out for Moor Boogeys & such! Follow the zone wall to the right, you will see a small tower off to your left. That's the proper tower. When you walk into it, you get a <Region> change, & are told "You have entered a summoning tower." Say the words, talk to the ghost & say "List", then wait a bit. Once it's all done, & you'll know when it is, just head back to Camelot & get your reward from Vismer.

If you're looking at a tower that's surrounded by Giant Skeletons & other purple aggros, just west of the villa, you're at the wrong one. Keep going south, & you will see another tower; it's much easier to get to, as there are only a few mobs in the area. The ring that Wizards get is very very nice, & I'm happy I've finally got this quest behind me!

Step 1 of the next part of the quest at L20 says, for me, to find some dust off skeletal legionnaires. I have killed skeletal legionnarius (outside Catacombs) but get no dust. Are they different?

step 7
# Feb 23 2002 at 6:37 AM Rating: Default
Had that problem myself for 2 weeks now, finally got an answer.
Step #7 of "Scura tragedia" is relatet to "La morti parla" Quest. Once you got to step #6 of "La morta" then "scura" will be at step #8.

Good Luck

He wants a druids eye that you obtain from the corpse of a druid in the salisbary plains . . I haven't been able to get the eye after killing quite a few druids though
# Feb 18 2002 at 12:35 PM Rating: Default
Silly question: How do you start the level 20 quest...I have finished the lvl 15 Quest and got my flute, but Vismer doesn't say anything else..

Life Becomes Death
# Feb 07 2002 at 11:24 AM Rating: Default
Does anyone remember the question the spirit asked? My answer was, "Life becomes death," and that seemed to work. But just for curiosity's sake, I was hoping someone had the question.
