Book QuestsEdit

Removed QuestsEdit

These quests used to be regular book quests, but were removed. The books are now obtained through new collection quests.

Quests With Steps in CommonEdit

Removed QuestsEdit

Alchemist's ComponentsEdit

These are all started by finding one of Stalvo's Notes. Each note mentions a different component that is needed. There may be more of these quests than are listed, as the notes are somewhat rare.

All of the notes can drop on ANY mob in Zek. There is SOME evidence that each note's drop rate is higher on the mobs targeted by the quest. This is not confirmed.

Due to the rarity of the notes, it would be nearly impossible to get all the quests and get the master quest while still low enough level to complete them all for credit, unless you are farm here and disable combat XP.

Leelee Brewbubble
Master quests offered only after completing all or most of the others at least once

Object-Triggered QuestsEdit

These are quests in Zek that are no longer in the game. It would seem that SOE rolled many of the old one-off item-triggered quests into the Alchemist's Components series.
