This is one of several tradeskill quests originating in Abysmal Sea. For general information on these quests, please see the main Gates of Discord Quests writeup.
The completion of this quest allows you to progress to an alchemy skill as high as 54 without spending any money. (Remember that you must be a level 25 or higher shaman to do alchemy. Shaman who attempt this before level 25 either won't be able to do it or just won't get the skillups. Cheap skillups are precious in alchemy; don't waste this opportunity.) Each step requires that you hand in enough completed items to progress to the next step. When you complete step four, you will be taught how to process samples of taelosian sludge and samples of highland sludge. However, at this time there are no recipes that use the processed results, so this ability is not yet useful.
This version of the GoD alchemy conversion quest requires you to provide samples of taelosian sludge and/or samples of highland sludge. If you would rather not have to provide anything, try the Alchemy Freebie quest.
You start with Jorlan Hegeway, an alchemy vendor. As you begin the first step, he will also give you a book containing instructions on making some other Gates of Discord recipes.
NPC: Jorlan Hegeway in Abysmal Sea @ 134, -49, 98, in the hold
Uses: any standard medicine bag for doing alchemy (Jorlan offers the vendor-bought Medicine Bag)
Book: The Delicate Art of Throwing Things
Step 1: Abysmal Sea Breathing Potion (trivial 31)
Step 2: Simple Taelosian Disease Cure Potion (trivial 38)
Step 3: Jorlan's Amazing Cleaner (trivial 46)
Step 4: Wayfarer Special Waterproofer (trivial 54)
You say, 'Hail, Jorlan Hegeway'
Jorlan Hegeway looks at you appraisingly. 'Have you any skill at alchemy? I certainly could use some [assistance] providing the unusual items that the Wayfarers are always in need of.'
You say, 'What assistance?'
Jorlan Hegeway says 'As the master alchemist on board, it is my duty to provide some of the more [unique chemicals] used on the ship. Unfortunately, this has prevented me from furthering my research on the unusual sludge that comes from the continent. My partner Lita also has some tasks that she may need help with and she can filter samples of Taelosian sludge for you. Me, I am trying to study the sludge that comes from the highland regions of the continent, particularly the mountainous areas. Something about those areas has imbued the [highland sludge] with unusual properties.'
You say, 'what unique chemicals?'
Jorlan Hegeway says 'I believe you can be of assistance to me, but I need some Sample of Filtered Taelosian Sludge that we can work with. Lita can filter a Sample of Taelosian Sludge for you. If you bring some filtered sludge to me, I can get you started helping out. If you help me I could teach you the secret of filtering the sludge. You'll have to work hard, but because the tasks I will be asking of you require you to bring your own materials, I can reward you sooner than Lita will.'
Lita Hegeway is right next to Jorlan Hegeway. Give her a sample of taelosian sludge and she will convert it into two sample of filtered taelosian sludge. You will need to do this every time you run out of samples of filtered taelosian sludge and need more for this quest. Lita also mentions sample of highland sludge. This is a more valuable version of the sample of taelosian sludge, and conversion of it provides you with sample of filtered highland sludge. Unless you really have a lot of highland sludge or don't care to use or sell it, you should stick to using taelosian sludge since it works just as well and is less valuable. If you do want to use the highland sludge, however, that works just the same wherever taelosian sludge is mentioned here.
STEP ONE: Abysmal Sea Breathing Potion
Hand Jorlan A Sample of Filtered Taelosian Sludge.
Jorlan Hegeway says 'Thank you for helping out. Your first task will be to help me with some water breathing potions. These are special, easier to make than most because they will be very limited in nature. They will only work here in the Abysmal Sea. Take a Sea Turtle Lung, a Flask of Abysmal Sea Water and a Small Sample of Filtered Taelosian Sludge and combine them in your medicine bag to produce the potion. Bring them back to me when you are done.'
He then gives you enough materials to make 10 Abysmal Sea Breathing Potions. Combine them in a medicine bag and turn in your successes unstacked. Repeat this process until you have handed in 40 Abysmal Sea Breathing Potions. When you give Jorlan the next filtered sludge, he will move on to step two.
STEP TWO: Simple Taelosian Disease Cure Potion
Jorlan Hegeway says 'Ah, good. I need a good volume of disease curing potions. We are not yet certain what sort of plagues may exist here. These are not too hard to make. Just take one of these Taelosian Insects and combine it in your medicine bag with a Small Sample of Filtered Taelosian Sludge. The insects should have samples of any illnesses we should have to worry about, and the sludge, used properly, will tame them. When you have the potions, please bring them back to me.'
He then gives you enough materials to make 10 Simple Taelosian Disease Cure Potions. Combine them in a medicine bag and turn in your successes unstacked. Repeat this process until you have handed in 30 Simple Taelosian Disease Cure Potions. When you give Jorlan the next filtered sludge, he will move to step three.
STEP THREE: Jorlan's Amazing Cleaner
Jorlan Hegeway says 'Your efforts are appreciated. I need more of a substance that I call Jorlan's Amazing Cleaner. I use it for many things lately. Primarily it's a fantastic cleaner. But it can be used in a few potions and such that I'm going to keep to myself. If you could take a Small Sample of Filtered Taelosian Sludge, a Orange Rind and two Chunk of Sandstone, combine them in your medicine bag and bring them back to me, I'd be grateful.'
He then gives you enough materials to make 10 Jorlan's Amazing Cleaner. Combine them in a medicine bag and turn in your successes unstacked. Repeat this process until you have handed in 40 Jorlan's Amazing Cleaner. When you give Jorlan the next filtered sludge, he will move to step four.
STEP FOUR: Wayfarer Special Waterproofer
Jorlan Hegeway says 'Bless your ancestors! I could certainly use some Wayfarers Special Waterproofer. It's not that hard to make. You just take this Sticky Tree Sap and combine it with a Sample of Filtered Taelosian Sludge in your medicine bag and you have it. Bring it back to me as soon as you can, I have a lot of potters waiting on that stuff.'
He then gives you enough materials to make 10 Wayfarer Special Waterproofer. (While he says he wants you to combine the Sticky Tree Sap with a Sample of Filtered Taelosian Sludge, the sludge he means is actually A Small Sample of Filtered Taelosian Sludge, not the same item that you have been giving him. Use what he gives you.) Combine them in a medicine bag and turn in your successes unstacked. Repeat this process until you have handed in 30 Wayfarer Special Waterproofer. Give him one last A Sample of Filtered Taelosian Sludge.
Jorlan Hegeway says 'You've been of great assistance. I owe you my thanks. I'll find others to do these tasks now. Go over and talk to Lita and she'll give you your reward. Make sure to tell her that you were here to [help out].'
Follow his instructions.
You say, 'help out?'
Lita Hegeway says 'You've been a great help already. I sense that you have greater tasks to attend to and there are fledglings about that can continue your work. As a reward for you assistance, please allow me to teach you the secret of filtering the Taelosian sludge. ' Lita leans forward and whispers directly in you ear. What she tells you makes sense and you believe that you can now filter the sludge. All you need to do is put the Sample of Taelosian Sludge into your medicine bag and combine. This will return a Sample of Filtered Taelosian Sludge. You believe that with continued work on filtering the sludge you may be able to improve your results.'
You now have the ability to turn Samples of Taelosian Sludge into Samples of Filtered Taelosian Sludge in a medicine bag, as well as Samples of Highland Sludge into Samples of Filtered Highland Sludge. For more information on the conversion process see the Gates of Discord Progressive Quests description.
