This is a series of quests towards a decent earring (at least it was at the time).

This quest is a reward for those who have advanced their skills to high levels and acquired access to certain planes. These quests are individually known as the "Aid Grimel Quests" and numbered in sequence (re: Aid Grimel Quest No. 1 - Blacksmithing). The series of quests ends with an 8th quest commonly called, "Signets of the Councilman."

Note that "Aid" is Grimel's title, not what you are doing for him (re: assisting him).

These quests are combined into one large quest below. The hardest part of these quests is getting your skill levels up and the costs/time involved, as you need to be Level 60 and have a skill of at least 220 in each skill.

Of course, faction can often be an issue as well… especially if you are "kill on sight" in some of the places that I suggest that you go. If that is the case, all I can say is that if you are a Paladin and are KoS in such places, then you have most certainly not been true to your calling. You will just have to faction up or find alternate locations.

Lastly, if you need to re-obtain the quest items from Grimel, you should be able to do so just by repeating the proper key phrase to him. Most of the combines must be done in a "New Tanaan" device. So if it doesn't work for you, head to the Plane of Knowledge and try it there.

NOTE: Many of the needs, ingredients and even the crafted items can often be found in Bazaar... saving a lot of time and trouble, but not expense.

!!!UPDATE!!! The new tradeskill devices added to the Plane of Knowledge near the "small bank" building are not New Tanaan devices. Be sure you use the older tradeskill devices in other areas / buildings of the zone (otherwise you will get a message you can't do the combine in the device you are using).

THE QUEST(S)

.

0) PRE-REQUISITES

1) You will need to expend AA on "New Tanaan Crafting Mastery" in order to advance all skills beyond 200 (buy them all).

.

2) You will need to get all skills up to at least 220, in order to undertake these quests (the NPC will not deal with you, otherwise).

.

3) You will need to be at least level 60 to get these quests (the NPC will not deal with you, otherwise). 

.

4) You will need access to a number of the Planar zones (PoP Progression), as you cannot get some quests without the proper flagging!

NOTE: I am unclear if the new “merit” access (by merit of level) is sufficient for this requirement. I suspect that it is not (as the quest has flagging pre-requisite checks, as opposed to "merit access" checks).

BACK TO TOP

.

3) JEWELRY MAKING

1) FACTION: Faction with the Coldain Dwarves may now become an issue, as you need "high" faction with them.

This is because of some of the items that you need to acquire are in Thurgadin.

However, it is reportedly possible to get around this.

I cannot confirm the side-steps, as I had ally faction with the Coldain, but the side-steps to get around faction are (try them where appropriate):

·         Use an invisible buff to get to the NPC that gives you the item.

·         Try a shroud.

.

2)  PLANE OF KNOWLEDGE: Go back to Grimel.

NOTE: You must have completed the second (Brewing) quest, above, in order to obtain this quest.

This item is obtained during the quest for the 4th Coldain Ring (Platinum Coldain Insignia Ring) (but it is also turned in during the same quest).

You can "re-quest" the item and simply not turn it in and keep it (you will not be able to get the ring by keeping it, but you can always take the quest back up after using the hammer for this quest).

The quest is outlined here.

.

6) ENCHANTMENT: You will need the services of a Level 44-plus Enchanter to enchant three (3) of the Velium Bar (previously noted).

·         Make a Purified Water (previously noted).

·         Make a Pure Enchanted Velium Bar (Magic, No Drop, Weight 0.3) in a forge (Blacksmithing, the Trivial is over 300... the actual trivial is not known as the recipe is not "learned" when you suceed with the combine) --- combine 3 (three) Enchanted Velium Bar, Purified Water, Coldain Velium Temper and a Coldain Smithing Hammer. If you fail, you may have to obtain the noted ingredients again.

.

8) Make a Velium Blue Diamond Ring (Magic, Lore, No Trade, AC 10, HP 65, Mana 65, Endurance 65, Fore 5, Disease 5, Cold 5, Magic 5, Poison 5, Weight 0.1, All/All, Enduring Breath, a Type 7 Slot).

.

8) You need to make the Fire Undergarment Tunic (Lore, Magic, No Trade, Weight 10.0, Chest, a Type 7 Slot; PAL CLR, SHD, BRD, WAR).

This one you will have to craft yourself, as it is No Trade.

It has a Tailoring Trivial of 250. However, most players who have done this, will tell you that this is the hardest combine of the entire quest. It appears that most players fail at this combine at least once (I failed three times).

In that the components are very hard to come by and/or very expensive, I strongly suggest that you work up your Tailoring to 250+, before you attempt this one!

It is made in a New Tanaan (PoK) loom with:

  • (3) Firesilk Swatch (previously noted)
  • Vial of Purified Mana (previously noted)

NOTE: You must have completed the fifth (Tailoring) quest, above, in order to obtain this quest.
