Starting the Quest[]

Speak to one of the following:


  • For the evil aligned version of the quest see Against the Elements for Freeport
  • For best results and the top reward DO NOT turn the quest in until you are at least level 101.
  • For the quest update, you MUST go after "challenging" (green con or better) mobs. It will involve killing several mobs that spawn out of a special tempest (many of them scattered throughout Norrath, then eventually killing the tempest itself. Once you have finished the quest and handed it in, you can then go after any of the other tempests in the land for the currency and the collectibles. (For the farming, you can go after grey ones if you want, be mentored, etc. You may also group for the currency updates, and everyone in the group will get it.) The tempests have about a 5-minute respawn timer on them, and are in several specific locations in 33 zones.


  1. Go to Qeynos mage Tower (Red Portal) and deliver the Adept's report to Librarian Elol at ( 721, 41, 102 ) Copy
  2. The librarian now requires you to bring back a sample Elemental Storm Shred.
  3. Find an elemental tempest and kill the elementals it spawns: each time you kill one, another one is spawned. This happens 5 times. After the 5th elemental is slayed, the tempest itself becomes aggressive. Kill that to receive an elemental shred.
    • Note: trackable by scouts and scout merc.
    • Note: for possible spawn locations see the talk page
  4. Return to Qeynos mage Tower (Red Portal) and hand an Elemental Storm Shred sample to Librarian Elol in return for your reward.
