Dragons of Norrath Cultural High Elf Quests

This is the quest for high elves to acquire the books necessary to make the cultural armor that is available with the Dragons of Norrath expansion. For more information on the general details, see the Dragons of Norrath Cultural Armor Quest Overview.

You start in North Felwithe, with Elistar Vorann at -64, -388, inside Emerald Armor. (When you enter go upstairs and through the first door on the right.) The books do not need to be acquired in any particular order, as Elistar will give you all of the quests at once if you ask.

Ancestral Book Quest:

You say, 'Hail, Elistar Vorann'

Elistar Vorann says 'Hello, Gilthanos. Welcome back to the fair city of [Felwithe]. You must tell me of your travels! '

You say, 'Felwithe'

Elistar Vorann says 'While you were away, we have made much advancement. Our trade alliance with Kaladim has secured us fresh mithril from their mines. In the meantime, our artisans have been refining our armor [designs] in preparation for the new alloys. '

You say, 'what designs'

Elistar Vorann says 'Yes, our old designs relied too heavily on the stopping power of the materials used in the armor. The new designs promote lighter, more flexible armor suits while providing the same amount of protection. It's difficult to explain until you have worn a new suit yourself. Would you be [interested] in these new armor patterns, or have you heard about the beneficial [symbols] I have discovered?'

You say, 'I am interested'

Elistar Vorann says 'Very well. To make you a pattern book, I'll need some zombie skin and darkbone marrow from the Estate of Unrest. I can use those to create the cover and ink for the book. I'll also need some of the battle beads from Crushbone to help bind the book and a rotting orc tooth to complete the ink. Bring me these things and the pattern book shall be yours.'

Quest Details: Collect and hand in Zombie Skin, Darkbone Marrow, Crushbone Battle Beads, and Rotting Orc Tooth.

Elistar Vorann says 'Well done, Gilthanos. Here, take this pattern book. It may require some time to master the technique of making armor, but these new patterns should set you out in the right direction. Best of luck!'

Receive: Ancestral High Elven Armor

You say, 'what symbols'

Elistar Vorann says 'I have found a great many symbols that can be created and added to our new armor designs. Once you placed these symbols on the armor the effect is nothing short of amazing. The capabilities of the armor are improved beyond the sum of its parts. If you wish I would be willing to part with instructions for these symbols in exchange for some [favors].'

You say, 'what favors'

Elistar Vorann says 'I have several sets of research components I have been after for some time now. Unfortunately I have not had the time to be able to gather them myself. If you would be willing to retrieve them for me they can be found in several areas, the [Ocean of Tears], [Lower Guk], [Fungus Grove], or [Lavaspinner's Lair].'

The following chart shows what drops are needed to make each tier of armor (made with the Ancestral book). More information about making the various tiers of symbols (with the Books of Culture) is on the Dragons of Norrath Cultural Armor Quest Overview, because the books are the only ingredient that differs between races.

Note that "swatches" are used for making silk armor and "elements" for making plate armor.
