Bestowal dialogue

It looks as though you have strayed a little ways from home, Elf, and you want to learn about scholarship?

'It seems, then, that you have come to the right place.

'You want to speak with Makan here in the Craft Hall. He will be able to set you upon the path of scholarship.'


Scholars study the ancient and not-so-ancient past to divine the secrets that were kept there. They can craft many wondrous treasures by learning of the past that can result in potions, oils, and scrolls which can enhance you and your fellows.

Be careful! You will need to complete the correct recipes and deliver the correct items outlined in this quest.

You will need to execute the minor scholar lore recipe and deliver the minor scholar lore scroll. Failing to do so will force you to obtain new raw materials or to restart the quest after a 24-hour delay.

Objective 1

  • Speak with <NPC> in the crafting area.

You should speak with <NPC> in <location> to learn more about scholarship.

Master of Apprentices: 'You should speak with the scholar trainer at once!'
Novice Scholar: 'Hello, there. I hear that you are interested in learning the ways of a scholar. If so, you have come to the right place.
'I will try to not move too quickly for you, but if I do, speak with me again to ask more pointed questions.
'I almost forgot the most important thing for every new scholar -- ingredients. Everything you need to make a scroll of minor scholar lore is inside this crate.'
Hildibras Took: 'Well, look here...another would-be scholar. I am please to meet you and looking forward to helping you get started.
'If I go too fast or you need help at any point, you can ask me questions about scholarship, and I will do my best to provide you with clear directions. The first and most important step is having the proper ingredients.
'I set aside a few for new scholars like yourself. Take this crate and let us begin.'
Scholar vendors sell ingredients and recipes that are a vital part of any Scholar's training and continued work.
You have been provided with ingredients

Objective 2

<NPC> provided you with a crate full of ingredients that you can use to execute the scroll of minor scholar lore recipe. Open the crate to get the ingredients.

Ingredients for Scholars are normally purchased from vendors found near ruins, inside chests, or rarely upon sentient enemies. You can also find ingredients on the Auction Hall.

You now have all the ingredients to make a scroll of minor scholar lore

Objective 3

<NPC> provided you with the ingredients necessary to create a scroll of minor scholar lore.

Novice Scholar: 'Scribing the scroll of minor scholar lore should be easy. Study the items that I gave you and scribe the knowledge that you glean onto a scroll.'
You have made a scroll of minor scholar lore

Objective 4

The recipe is complete. Do not sell the scroll of minor scholar lore! It is time to show your handiwork to your mentor, <NPC>.

Novice Scholar: 'Let me see what you have done.'
She looks over the scroll.
'I can find no fault with the information that you have scribed on this page.
'I think that this is a very good effort and proves that you are prepared to continue your work towards becoming a master scholar.'
Hildibras Took: 'Let me see what you were able to do...'
He inspects the scroll with a discerning eye.
'No misspellings, and it seems that this will provide you with a fair amount of focused insight.
'I think that you have done very, very well, <name>. I approve and declare you a novice scholar.'
