The guards in Terens Grasp will give you a location wisp if you ask them to search for him.
- Tabbin sends you into Karnor's Castle to find his instruments, which you can in any order:
- The Mask is a small chest drop from any trash mobs in zone, and mobs can be grey.(Tested 4/3/2010) Tested 1/20/2013, killed about 20 grey mobs before chest dropped.

- Make sure you have show illusions turned on in your Persona window and click on the Painting ( -189, -41, 89 ) /waypoint -189, -41, 89, across the room from the chest. Then click the chest ( -189, -41, 53 ) /waypoint -189, -41, 53 in order to get the update.
- Return to Tabbin Juniper. He now gives you a book with information about the Maiden of Masks.
- Unfortunately, he has torn out all the pages except for the first page, as he used the other pages as IOU's to pay his tabs at different bars across Norrath. You must find all 10 pages in order:
- Page 2: Go to Omen's Call in the Fens of Nathsar and speak to Goldie Sams ( 209, -60, -274 ) /waypoint 209, -60, -274. It turns out Tabbin owes her 185 platinum and 2 copper. Thankfully she lets you pay off the debt by bringing her fish meat. Complete the subquest Paying Off a Tab: Fish Fry by killing 100 fishmen for auto-updates. There are plenty of fishmen in the ruins south of Omen's Call. She gives you page number 2 (a collection item) and a clue as to where you can find the next page.
- Page 3: Head to The Estate of Unrest in Butcherblock Mountains. Page number 3 is a body drop off the The Sadistic Bartender.
- Note: Only one page drops per instance. If more than one illusionist working on epic together, this step must be done separately !
- Page 4: Found in Kaladim. Click the page in the tavern room before the Queen ( -144, 45, -77 ) /waypoint -144, 45, -77. This will spawn a level 83^^^ Golem. Kill it, and click the page again to get the update.

If you've sold it, lost it, or want it back after the trade you can buy it from the Shady Swashbuckler on Nektulos Forest docks. The Shady Swashbuckler replacement will only work if you have completed the HQ yourself; the item from the HQ merchants in Freeport and Qeynos is not acceptable to Rumdum.
- Page 7: Hail the bartender ( -450, 2, -135 ) /waypoint -450, 2, -135 in the Laughing Trout in Rivervale and pay the tab of 1 gold to receive the page. You must speak Stout for this step.
