Start Location: Tima Drokh (14.3N, 3.3E), near Molwirth


Tima Drokh tells you,
"Greetings, friend. I have been researching the history of the ruins that were exposed by the lakes receding waters. I have come to believe they were once the magnificent city of Artefon, whose vast necropolis housed the final remains of the greatest of the golden age. I have a particular interest in knowing the location and condition of the Tombs of the Knights from that era. Discover them for me and I will reward you with the knowledge to create a set of armor of great knowledge."

You will now have to find the 6 tombs of each Knight along the western shore of the Lake Artefon basin.

Tomb of the Knight Dragon at 16.6N, 4.7E
Tomb of the Knight Flame at 17.8N, 6.4E
Tomb of the Knight Shield at 19.3N, 4.9E
Tomb of the Zharalim at 20.5N, 6.9E
Tomb of a Knight of the Unicorn at 20.5N, 5.3E
Tomb of the Prophet of Blades at 19.6N, 6.4E

After double clicking on each of the tombs, the quest info should update each time. Return and speak to Tima Drokh (14.3N, 3.3E) near Molwirth.

Tima Drokh tells you,
"It is as I feared--the tombs have been desecrated and thier contents have been removed, Who could have done such a thing, and why? The Warders of Osteth must be notified. Thank you for your diligence. In my research of the city I uncovered the ancient means to create the armor of the Ancients Knights, which I will now grant to you. I've Heard that Ilia Grayten recently announced her discovery of the lost Ruby Mines once owned by the great Master Smith Ulkas. Word of her discovery came from the west, at the base of the Cobalt Mountians. She might be able to help you find the jewels you need to complete your armor. Another acquaintance, Orlen Jarlns, has found Shoyanen's lost method of imbuing rubies. He is now living near her old tower."

Now you will need to obtain 13 Ferrous Pyreals and 8 rubies To obtain Ferrous Pyreals the easiest way to do this is head to the Fetter Mounds north of Southern Prosper Outpost the Ferrous Pyreal spawn randomly within the circular looking area on your map, another way is to kill Inferno Drudges within the Firey Crypt which is much harder at lower levels.For Rubies You can do this one of two ways. You can locate and kill the Undead Knights that hang around near the tomb areas, who drop 1 ruby each, or you can go to the Ruby Mines.

To get to the Ruby Mines you will need one Ferrous Pyreal to give to Ilia Grayton (16.6N, 4.6W) near Molwirth. Give her the Ferrous Pyreal and enter the mines. There are 3 mines that you can mine from. Remember you need 8 Rubies which is all you will be allowed to mine anyway from the quest Ilia Grayten gives you. In most cases you may need a group or a high level player to join you to help clear the mine in this case you will need a Ferrous Pyreal for each of those members to enter the Mine.

A note: If you open your Skills window, Crafting tab, scroll down to Quest Recipes you will see a section called Mines of Ulkas, inside you once you have given the pyreal, Click the Mine Emerald recipe. Select the mine and use the recipe to do the mining for you. This will allow multiple fellowship members to mine at the same time. Mining by just clicking on the mine will prevent you from mining if someone else is already in the process of doing so

Ferrous Pyreal 1 to enter mine, 12 needed to make the armor, + one for each person to help in the mines not doing the quest
Ruby 8 needed to make the armor.

You will need a Shadow Totem and Aconite for the next part of the quest, Shadow Totems are found from random drops or you can possibly find one in the Curiosities Shop in Cragstone or other major city. Aconite can be found in the Kydi Delta Region on the ground or purchased from a Curiosities Shop in one of the major cities.

Shadow Totem 1 needed to give to Orlen Jarlns for Shoyanen's Solution Quest
Aconite You will need a minimum of 5 maximum of 7 of these plants for the Shoyanen's Solution Quest,

Once you have the Rubies and the Shadow Totem you will need to make your way to Mayoi in Omishan there is a portal to Omishan in Cavendo located at (16.2N, 29.1E) once in Omishan head west you will see the ringway icon on your map, follow the ringway until you reach Mayoi. Once you are in Mayoi travel southeast to Orlen Jarlns (5.7S 49.2E).

Orlen Jarln tells you,
"Greetings stranger. My former research led me here to the famed tower of Shoyanen Kenchu. Through my excavation near this tower I discovered her lost recipes for the infusions which allowed Master Smith Ulkas to imbue the gems of his Armor of the Ancients with magic beyond compare. As my scholarly focus includes many subjects, I also believe the objects within the Hoard of Chaos deserve further research. I am now willing to make an exchange - bring me a Shadow Totem, and I will give you my Alembic, instruct you in its use, and show you how to imbue the jewles from the Ulkas mines with power."

You will need to hand him a Shadow Totem key to start the Shoyanen's Solutions quest.

Orlen Jarln tells you,
"Thank you! There has been a small amount of geothermal activity in the lesser isles of western Ariaki, eastern Lumari, and the Mist Curl Vale of Oriad. Fill up this Alembic with Mineral Water from one of the Geysers that have sprung up in each of these areas. Combine the Aconite flowers that grow here in the Kydi Delta and the Ariaki River Delta with this Mineral Water into an infusion and give it to me for inspection. I will then show you how to imbue jewels from the Ulkas mines with magic. Keep in mind that the water flowing from each of these regions is subtly different, and when combined with Aconite will yeild a different type of infusion."

Orlen Jarln gives you a Glass Alembic which will be used to collect the waters for the solution

Glass Alembic

Travel to the Atolu Geyser(22.6N, 48.4E) in the Ariaki region to get Waters of Atolu. You can reach this area from Orlen Jarln's location by travelling back to Mayoi and taking the Gateway to Ikeras(4.5S, 44.5E), once you have traveled through the gateway travel east towards the city of Ikeras. you will see the Ariaki Ringway(9.5N, 61.2E) just past the Lifestone. Travel the Ringway to Northwest Ariaki Outpost(17.1N, 48.5E) once here travel north, you will see an island off the coast that will be your destination. Once on the island make your way to the Atolu Geyser (22.6N, 48.4E). Hand the Alembic in your inventory to the Atolu Geyser to get Waters of Atolu.

Waters of Atolu

Use the quest recipe to create a Decoction of Aconite. You can find the recipe in your Skills window, Craft tab, Quest Recipes. You will need to repeat this process until you have 9 Decoction of Aconite.

Decoction of Aconite 9 Decoction of Aconite are needed(8 for the rubies, and 1 to complete the Shoyanen's Solution quest).

Once you have all 9 return to Orlen Jarlns(5.7S 49.2E) southeast of Mayoi. Hand him one Decoction of Aconite to complete the Shoyanen's Solution quest. He will then give you the recipe needed to imbue the Rubies. Each Ruby will need to be imbued with one Decoction of Aconite. You can find the recipe in your Skills window, Craft tab, Quest Recipes. Use the recipe to create 8 Imbued Rubies

Orlen Jarlns tells you,
"Good job! I shall reserve this infusion for my future research, but take this recipe. I hear the fabled ruby mines of Ulkas have been discovered by a woman named Ilia Grayten in the Cobalt Mountains. This recipe will help you imbue the rubies from these mines with magical properties that have been lost to the world until now. Good luck in your travels, adventurer."

Imbued Ruby

You will now be able to create your armor with the combination of the 8 Imbued Rubies and the 12 Ferrous Pyreals by using the recipes given to you.
