What does this information mean?


  • You will need to speak Uruvanian for the step with the Djinn. Most players recommend that you complete the quest Words of Air before going in the Palace to avoid running out of Djinn monsters and having to wait for their very slow repop.
  • You must speak Di'Zokian, related quest A Mysterious Red Tome


  1. Visit Smendrik2604, 87, 1296 ) Copy in the city of Gorowyn in Timorous Deep, he will send you out to find some items:
    • Writhing Eye Stalk (in Chelsith - kill abyss lurkers in the water for rare update) *Head in, Jump in the water on the left* ( 38, 0, 380 ) Copy
    • Black Coral (in Chelsith - found under water near abyss lurkers)
    • Soul sharpened teeth - Kill bottomless devourers in Charasis: Maiden's Chamber or Charasis: Vault of Eternal Sleep for 2 updates. There's more devourers in Maiden's Chambers, so it might be a good idea to start there.
    • Drake Eggs: Kill 50 of any drake in Jarsath Wastes (near Skyfire Mountains) for common update.(Burning Familiars from A Dracorion keepers work for this as well. There's about 20 of them starting at ( -2392, 296, 404 ) Copy.
    • Pan Pipes from a powerful satyr: The Powerful Satyr - New Tunaria; turn left at the Temple of Growth and go up the hill and around the back past the Sentry Creation Chamber to the Satyr Camp. Hail Ephacles Tilikatos-998, 54, -1174 ) Copy, after speaking to him he will attack you (83 ^^). Defeat him to get the Pan Pipes. (He's easily solo kiteable, only problem is he casts stun which will mean your death if it lands)
    • A djinn willing to give me a mandolin: The Djinn you are looking for is Arash Abbas in The Poets Palace 4th floor of palace, approx ( 17, 305, -85 ) Copy)(NOTE: Djinn language needed
  2. After you have all the updates, talk to Smendrik in the city of Gorowyn
  3. Talk to Ashe on the Enchanted Lands dock.
  4. Then back to Smendrik once more. Smendrik sends you out once again to get more updates:
    • A Folly worthy of pleasing Bristlebane - Throw pies at people in Rivervale. Gather 10 pies off the table in front of The Fools Gold-52, -23, 38 ) Copy, and throw them at the friendly halflings in front of The Fools Gold. You must hit a different halfling with each pie. Once all 10 pies are thrown, proceed inside The Fools Gold to tell a sad tale.
    • A Sad Tale - Speak to Liddy Bobick-78, -17, -15 ) Copy in The Fools Gold. You will need to tell her a tale of two young lovers in order to make her and the others in the area cry and update the quest. (**See Discussion Page for correct order of responses)
    • A Tuning Fork - Hail Otzal Di'Zok, in Chardok within The Library of Divination at ( 920, -44, 437 ) Copy. Di'Zokian language is required for this step (A Mysterious Red Tome)'. Hail the Tuner, he will attack you (Level 84 ^^^). Defeat him and loot the legendary no-trade tuning fork for the update. The chest from Otzal now drops tuning forks for each Dirge in your group on this stage of the quest. See the main article Chardok for more information on how to access the Library of Divination.
  5. Return to Smendrik2604, 86, 1296 ) Copy in the city of Gorowyn to collect your reward

STOP! If your goal is to have the Item for the Epic Conversion Timeline, you do NOT need to do the RAID version. You can begin that timeline now.
