The Astrologer’s Request
I’m a bit late writing this since 2x exp and prod day happened. I’d just like to document the New Year’s event and the prizes and notes that I got.
When you log on, an owl will deliver you a quest “The Astrologer’s Request”. Head to Dunbarton library and talk with the astrologer on the right side. She will give you a collection book for which you have to collect the 7 pieces of a shredded letter. Note that the pieces are tradeable, so you can buy them from other players if you want. You can also collect extra pieces so you can do it on your alts too.
She mentions that if you need hints as to where the next piece is located, she will help you by looking at the crystal ball. However, it seems the hints aren’t in the correct order or sometimes are not available. Hence, it’d be better just to ignore her. The pieces themselves also give hints as to where you can find subsequent pieces.
Piece 1: Mine the ore pile in Bangor, outside of Barri dungeon. You can buy pickaxes from Elen.
Piece 2: Equip a fishing rod and bait tin and fish in any body of water. You can get the piece in Tir, Emain, Ceann, Ceo or housing areas.
Piece 3: Hold an empty bottle in your hand and click on the well next to the easternmost house outside of Dunbarton. You can buy empty bottles from Walter.
Piece 4: Check the history bookshelf behind the astrologer.
Piece 5: Head to Ulaid Forest in Dugald Aisle, west of Tracy. You will find two wooden men in the northwest by the cliff face. Hit them for the piece.
Piece 6: Go see Ferghus in Tir Chonaill and find a tree behind his shop. The piece can be obtained by hitting the tree.
Piece 7: Run Ciar normal dungeon and obtain this piece from the end chest. You may obtain the piece in a party.
Now that you have collected all 7 pages, head back to Dunbarton library. Open the now-completed collection book and receive the reward, the Astrologer’s Letter. Talk to the astrologer again and complete the quest. You will receive the Astrologer’s Note and the Astrologer’s Gift.
By using the Astrologer’s Note, a message à la fortune cookie will appear. It doesn’t do or mean anything or does it???
From the Astrologer’s Gift, you will receive a random item. It could be something worthless like food or something useful like finest leathers.
I got the following notes and gifts. I didn’t get a rare colour kite shield or LLB, but it was good nevertheless.
Arietta: “Keep smiling. Times may be tough right now, but it won’t stay like this forever.” 10 silver ores.
Clariee: “Enjoy yourself! Food, music, and the company of loved ones are good for you.” Purple-handle mace.
Filia: “Take time to thank those who have helped you! That is unless you want to be called a noob yourself.” Fish and chips.
Fiorella: “Fishing is a good way to AFK (Always Find Knick Knacks).” 100 handmade arrows.
Marisela: “Many noobs will ask you for help. Seek them out, and in turn you will receive lots of happiness.” 10 gold ingots.
Milena: “Take time to thank those who have helped you! That is unless you want to be called a noob yourself.” 5 finest leathers.
Arienne: “I see luck in your future. You will soon receive huge lucky finishes.” 10 gold ingots.
