Reassembling the Hand[]

  1. Return to Master Makoto Shoda with the five blades. He will send you to find information on how to reassemble the hand. The information is in scattered pages of the collection The Forbidden Pages, that can be found in Charasis: Maiden's Chamber and Charasis: Vault of Eternal Sleep. Some are ground spawns and some drop from named mobs in the zones. The body drops will only update one monk at a time so don't group with other monks expecting updates. Good idea to Chrono down to 80 while running through this zone to make sure the pieces drop.
    1. Charasis: Maiden's Chamber:
      1. Page 5 - the Impaler Tzilug (chest) ( 155, -18, 62 ) Copy
      2. Page 3 - the Hallowed Hall (ground) ( 110, -18, 243 ) Copy
      3. Page 4 - bottom of retractable bridge chamber (ground) ( 49, -42, 153 ) Copy
      4. Page 7 - Drusella Sathir (chest) ( 39, 5, 179 ) Copy
    2. Charasis: Vault of Eternal Sleep:
      1. Page 2 - bottom of the pit outside the Praetor of the Phylactery's chamber (ground) ( 5, -18, 193 ) Copy
      2. Page 1 - Golem's mini event room (ground) ( 37, -5, -290 ) Copy
      3. Page 6 - the Praetor of the Phylactery (body loot) ( 27, -3, -132 ) Copy
  2. Turn in the collection then scribe the recipe given, "Diagram: Claw of Instruction". Recipe requires:
    1. 3 tynnonium clusters (T8 rare)
    2. 1 rough fire emerald (T8 rare)
    3. 20 ferrite clusters (T8 common)
    4. 20 deklium clusters (T8 common)
    5. 10 smoldering coal (vendor)
  3. Craft the diagram at a Work Bench. FYI it is wise to be at least a level 10 crafter for this to go well for you.
  4. Return to Master Makoto Shoda to show him what you had created and to get the completed Hand of Serenity. Also given the next quest: The Mended Hand.

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.
