What does this information mean?


  • To reach the book,climb up the wall at ( -648, 8, 109 ) /waypoint -648, 8, 109 or ( -621, 8, 109 ) /waypoint -621, 8, 109, then jump off the ledge into the Pool of Immortality. From there you can climb up to the cobra statue.


  1. Harvest an ancient urn in the Priestess' Court. ( -332, 22, 112 ) /waypoint -332.42, 22.48, 111.83
    • Note: Only one person can harvest the urn at a time. Respawn is ~2 minutes, and you can no longer see the urn once you have harvested it.
  2. Read the Tome of the Vessel.
  3. Fill the vessel by using the urn near the pools at these locations:
  4. Read the Tome of the Vessel.
  5. Find the pieces:
  6. Read the Tome of the Vessel.
  7. Go to the Priestess' Court and stand at ( -117, 33, 109 ) /waypoint -116.99, 33.00, 108.71. Read the Writ of Akh Na'ba, received after completing the previous step, at exactly this location. A sparkly platform will materialize and lift you up.
    • If you're standing in the right place, you'll be lifted up on an elevator. If not, it says that "you must try another location", so you'll have to re-position and read the writ again. You will know that you are close to the correct spot if you try and camp. It will tell you that "you may not camp on a transporter". This can be frustrating as it is very particular as to the exact spot in which you need to stand. The lift is a small rectangle and you should appear to be standing on thin air just above the ground when on top of it.
    • If you are having difficulty with this step, try summoning Rin Priestess of the Fyr'Un, stand at the given location ( -115, 13, 109 ) /waypoint -115, 13, 109, kill the Priestess, THEN examine the Writ of Akh Na'ba - in that order.
    • Another suggestion: go to ( -108, 13, 109 ) /waypoint -108, 13, 109 first and then inspect the item you will be told that the lift is ascending. Something does get activated in that area. Then go to ( -115, 13, 109 ) /waypoint -115, 13, 109 and inspect the item again for the final effect.
  8. The quest will complete when the elevator lifts you up high enough.
