What does this information mean?


  • You must be at least level 25 to receive this quest.
  • NOTE: Scholar Al'Quylar is slain at the end of this quest, so you may have to wait for him to respawn to speak with him, if someone else defeated him recently.


  1. Harvest underwater power sources in:
  2. Return to Scholar Al'Quylar.
  3. Obtain the following items from The Ruins of Varsoon in the Thundering Steppes:
    • Brown Research Tome on Binding: ( 18, 4, 69 ) Copy
    • Black Research Tome on Immortality: ( 237, -7, 54 ) Copy
    • Note: Be forewarned that the Tome of Life and Tome of Death spawn in the same rooms where these research tomes are found. They are needed for a later step in the questline so it is best to try and avoid killing them.
      • Tip: If you are having difficulty with the Named Tomes, the research tomes can be picked up from the corner of the hall that precedes the rooms where the Named Tomes are in.
  4. Return to Scholar Al'Quylar.
  5. Obtain one of the following items from Stormhold:
    • Palladium torque: Dropped by Lord Androus at ( 68, 5, -79 ) Copy.
    • Palladium bangle: Dropped by The Char Fiend at ( 81, 5, -133 ) Copy.
    • The required item is not auto-updated, but rather looted from the chest dropped from the above named monsters. As such, if your character is too high-level then you must chrono down to a level where the chest will drop (level 25 should suffice).
    • Possibly dropped from some named mobs in Edgewater Drains. (confirmation needed)
    • As an alternative to obtaining the bangle or torque from the above named monsters, the crafted Fashioned Palladium Bangle or Pristine Fashioned Palladium Bangle also work.
    • You can also purchase either item directly from the broker. Note: When you purchase from the broker, the quest will not update until you hand the item in to Scholar Al'Quylar.
  6. Return to Scholar Al'Quylar.
    • Note: There is a known bug where the quest appears to have failed to update after you've obtained the items, and Al'Quylar will NOT have a quest marker over him. Regardless, if you talk to him with the items in your inventory you will successfully complete this step.
  7. Return to The Ruins of Varsoon and slay:
    • Tome of Life: ( 12, 7, 71 ) Copy
      • 10 minute respawn timer.
    • Tome of Death: ( 228, 0, 55 ) Copy
      • 25 minute respawn timer.
    • You need to kill the entire encounter for the update to be recorded in your journal; killing just the named will not work. Grey mobs do work.
  8. Return to Scholar Al'Quylar.
  9. Kill Varsoon the Undying in the Chamber of Immortality234, -4, 98 ) Copy within The Ruins of Varsoon.
  10. Return to Scholar Al'Quylar. He will become aggressive and attack as a named monster, a level 35^^^ heroic with a pet and a knockback ability. Kill him for your reward.
    • Everyone in the group does NOT need to hail Scholar Al'Quylar at the same time to get the update. See discussion page for views on this issue.
