Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Note: You can only receive this quest if you are not a member of the Mages Guild. Members receive a similar but unrelated quest, namely Retrieve an Ingredient.

Menial Tasks[edit]

The Guildmagister says:

"I am (Guildmagister's name). As a rule, only guild members are paid for work. However, I do have a small task that needs to be done. If you were to do it for free, I would put in a good word for you with the guild. Are you willing?"

or

"I am (Guildmagister's name). Guild work for guild members only. However, I do have a small job that nobody else is willing to do. One of our more eccentric masters is absolutely insistent we get her a sample of (ingredient), which we are fresh out of. If you got some for me, I would be very grateful. You [sic] standing with the guild would surely improve."

Accept[edit]

The Guildmagister responds:

"An excellent attitude (player's first name). I need some (ingredient). The only specimen I know of at the moment is to be found in (dungeon). You have (time limit) days to bring it back."

Decline[edit]

The Guildmagister answers:

Should have known. I am tired of this conversation (player's name). Good day.

Finding the Ingredient[edit]

This quest is one of many dungeon crawls in the game. Head to the dungeon the Guildmagister named and find the ingredient within. Once you have found it, pick it up and you will get a notification:

This must be the (ingredient) (Guildmagister's name) asked you to find.

Reward[edit]

Bring the ingredient back to the Guildmagister in time and he will say:

"I've seen better samples. Did you sit on it the whole way back? In any event, it will do. I'll make sure that you are spoken of with favor in the guild halls."

Although you won't get any material reward for your work, there is a 1/3 chance that the Guildmagister will give you a map to a random dungeon, in which case he will add:

"As a special thanks from the Mages Guild, allow me to present you with this map to (dungeon name). I understand that people like you salivate over such things."
