Petoffen,
You are thinking of the wrong lord in CoM. We do not need Rak'Ashiir. He can be bypassed entirely. One good group around level 55 can do the lord we need, Neh'Ashiir. Heck when I got my torch our tanks were a 51 rogue, shaman pet, enchanter's various pets and my pet. We were lucky as the reaver only spawned one more reaver before Neh'Ashiir herself. The rogue is a must as you wll run into 3 locked doors on your way.

As for the SF mob, I dunno. Haven't done it and don't know anyone on my server that has.

We won't get the new weapon right after finding those three steps, we'll just be sure how to complete what we know about so far

Something I found while looking through the EQCaster thingy.. Four spells that I haven't seen before that seem to relate to the "Manifest Elements" that will likely be the proc/effect on our FA-Style weapon (it's grouped with them at the bottom of the spell list with the other known and unknown but likely spells) These four new spells are:

1. Fist of Mastery:
Stuns Target for 15 seconds
Decreases current hitpoints by 500 (direct damage)
No resistance check according to the info, awesome proc on the pet if it's included

2. Aura of Elemental Mastery
Damage shield from 2 (L1) to 61 (L60)
Increase Fire Resistance by 5
Self only, so the pet would cast it upon itself

3. Elemental Mastery Strike
Stuns target between 3.1 (L1) to 5.9 (L42) seconds
Decrease Hit Points (HP) from 36 (L1) to 95 (L60)

4. Elemental Mastery Blast
Decrease Hit Points (HP) from 47 (L1) to 165 (L60)
This would be very formidable, even if not included with the first one listed.

I am almost certain that the last three listed are the spells our FA-Style pet will cast. I think the proc on our weapon will be like the Mystwalker, bringing an awesome four-element pet with the damage shield, nukes and stun of the original pets. I don't see a root, however, so it would likely be for group situations only. Even then, looks like a damn good deal considering the others only get 2-4 minute buffs or Ykesha-style dd's =)

Another thing to come to mind.. If the Orb we summoned was the FA-Style item, we could probably hand it to our pet and give him uber-ness. I'm starting to think that they A. changed the quest before it was complete
B. Summon Orb is a part of the quest itself, later on or
C. Summon Orb was added to the spell files to throw us off, since we were cheating and looking at the spell files..

If you guys bothered to read any of Gordon's posts, he stated that the spells that everyone is stating as the effects for the weapons are not actually the effects. They are dumby files to keep the spell hackers and gossipers busy.

Thats BS. Dance of the blade was an effect that was known beforehand and it was actually on the bard weapon.

When has anyone done a quest where they asked for a (just an example) yellow boot and it turned out to be Efreeti boots? Verant has never done that in any of the quests I've done / read about... if they say a yellow boot, turn in "a Yellow boot".

Elemental Binder is just that... and Elemental Binder. Dirt of the Underfoot...is not Holy, or unholy, or anything else. Verants rude but they don't make you turn in 2 ultra rare items and a 3rd guessed item just to find out it was the wrong one.

Akkstaff was up when i walked into nejena to do that part of the quest... by nejena, he despawned in front of me... then he was up at the zone about 3 hours later after I got all the torn pages. Most likely just a random spawn.

Unless someone is lying... black scar drops the ember, it's just rare... 1 in 20 or 30 isn't that bad compared to some other drops.

Also, the hacked spell files could be real or could be fake, most likely they are real. The scepter we get looks just like the screenshots that have been posted. Gold with 4 colors flowing out the end (vague description) the bard and rogue items looked just like the pictures, why wouldn't the mage? Now for my guess... It has an effect that summons an orb (or just has an effect like the other focus items) only this is used for all 4 types of pets.

One last thing, please read all the post (I know it's a lot) before responding saying maybe the book of obulus is the elemental binder or something like that.

Just to confirm here, for the Earth Orb, we need "Dirt of Underfoot." This can be found randomly on any mob in the Hole, not just Slizik the Mighty? I've heard of this Holy Dirt of Underfoot and such, and just dirt of underfoot. Which one is it? Anyone actually turned in everything and gotten the Earth Orb?

I have a question: Does the Power of Fire drop from the Blazing Elementals or from the Lava Elemental? Please don't answer unless YOU have actually looted Power of Fire from a dead mob. Not trying to be rude, it's just that different message boards say blazing and some say Lava.

Thanks

On the topic of whether the Elemental Binder will be called an Elemental Binder or something else, let's try to think like the designer of the quest.

All the epic quests have been designed by different people, and by now, we can tell that each designer has a different style of their own.

The Druid quest designer loves the respawning of dead mobs design (killing a tainted mob will spawn a corrupted mob which is the mob you need).

The ranger quest designer loves puzzles. They have a crossword puzzle type thingy to figure out haha.

The enchanter quest designer is obssessed with the power to Charm and enchanters have to charm a lot of mobs to advance in their quest.

The wizard quest designer uses a sequence of notes where the REAL msg is revealed when you identify them.

Personally, I think the mage quest design has been very straight forward so far. It is basically just a shopping list similar to the Bard quest.

So my guess is the Elemental Binder will be called the Elemental Binder that is dropped by a mob somewhere.

But after seeing how the wizard quest has been designed, I am not gonna take any chances and am gonna check all old vendors in mage guilds and libraries for new items sold and gonna cast identify on everything I own that looks remotely like a Binder to see if they will be identified as an "Elemental Binder".

I also think the elemental binder is either an item called 'Elemental Binder', or wich idenntifies a such.
But other possibilities are not to be neglected.. So far the mage quest requires items who have the same exact name as what the quest NPCs ask for. But one of the NPCs of the bard quest, for example, asks for 'the backbones of an ancient fisherman' and you have to figure out that it's Phinigel's spines..

Just a quick thought on the SUmmon Orb spell...
IT, without a doubt in my opinion is used in our quest. Think about it. It's a 46 lvl spell and we dont get spells at that lvl. Its the minimum lvl for the quest, since you have o go to the planes. AND, the existance of the spell was known after the FA quests started. So regardless if it is the final thing, an intermidiate thing...something you have to hand to an NPC...doesnt matter.
For me its perfectly logical that at some part of the quest it is used.

*hoping to get to a higher lvl to start doing some of this stuff* )

Heh to be honest with you I think what we get at the end is a scroll, a spell called Summon Orb.

You know how we're always complaining that we have no good summons, that our summons suck? well Verant is gonna have us summon our own FA, now we can't say our summon suck cause our best summon will be the mage FA.

Oh and it case you're wondering what the "orb" is, its that thing you see on the screen while you're playing in window mode, you know the 2 animated hands with the orb in the middle, that's the orb, if you look carefully at the picture of our FA weapon, you can see inside the FA case is the Orb, you'll have to loot at it carefully. Here's a link to the picture

Ok, this is the 3rd day since the patch and Akksstaff still has not spawned on the Nameless. What is more disturbing is when I petitioned, a gm told me that the quest may have been altered and npcs moved. Can anyone confirm on a different server that Akksstaff has spawned since the patch?

Ok it seems everyone is looking for a book - while on the other hand I think the "Elemental Binder" is a jar or container like the "Soul Binder" that is dropped in KC.

Anywho just my 2cp

Adiilea, can you tell me what server this is on? If it's another server, then there is still the possibility that the spawn may be broken on the Nameless. But this is good news since it means that at least this part of the quest has not been changed.

dont worry I dont think they changed this part of the quest, they wont at least until someone gets the damn thing, then they'll nerf.

As for Akksstaff he hasn't spawned on Xegony since the last patch either. Camp for the pages then camp for the guy to give em to. This is rediculous.
