The Heritage Quest - from human to elf; by Siobhan Minos of Legends

Mondain's Legacy introduced a new culture... a new race - the elves. With this expansion players have the option to create an elven being in addition to a human character. But what of the current characters that would better serve role play as an elf? Players are not left to transferring one skill per day using a soulstone or soulstone fragment - they can simply complete what is known as the Heritage Quest. This is a relatively simple quest - one in which tasks must be fulfilled. This guide will help you complete the Heritage Quest.

Before we start the quest - let's gather some simple items: 20 raw fish steaks and a pitcher of water. These are two items you will need for a portion of a quest and it is easier to gather them before hand than to wait until you need them.

Our first step towards becoming an elf, and ironically, the last is to visit Darius the Wise. If you do not have a rune direct to Darius, he is located in the Lycaeum in Moonglow, which is the far Northwest building. Simply step up to him and allow him to finish his speech about the different steps of the Heritage Quest.

The next sub-quests can be done in any order.

Arielle - The Joys of Life
Arielle is a wee lil pixie found just North of the Spirituality Shrine near a pond (shown on map above). She is lighthearted and airy and all she wishes is for you to bring her 3 baubles. The baubles are located just west of her near a blue flowstone. All you need to do is pick up 3 of these magical little stones, mark them as a quest item and return them to Arielle.

This quest is only dangerous for those with negative karma as there are pixies and unicorns flitting about. To save you some time, it might be wise to take another character to gather the baubles for you. It will save on deaths and frustration.


Bravehorn - Defending the Herd
Bravehorn, a great hart, is located in a forest area in Trammel, just South by Southeast of the Hedge Maze near the mountain range.

The quest is to lead him to a nearby drinking pond. The pond is located Northeast of his start location and slightly east of the Hedge Maze.

As a quick note, if you are a paladin, do not use Holy Light to attack any spawn as it will affect Bravehorn and he will attack you.

There is only one Bravehorn so if more than one person is questing, it is possible you will need to wait at the start area a couple minutes until Bravehorn returns for the next questor.


Strongroot - Caretaker of the Land
Strongroot is a Quest Giving Treefellow located East by Southeast of Shame down by the new Blighted Grove. There is no spawn around Strongroot but if you should wander, you might find yourself face to face with something to battle.

Strongroot is asking for Sap of Sosaria. This is a small green bottle of sap that spawns on the ground near two Yew Trees. These trees are located just North of the Yew Graveyard.

To complete this quest you will need to accept the quest from Strongroot, find the Sap of Sosaria and then return to Strongroot.

Do not forget to mark the Sap of Sosaria as a quest item.

When you have completed this part of the quest, you are ready to move on to the next quest.




Maul the Bear - Seasons
Maul the Bear is located on the peninsula that is located South by Southwest of the dungeon entrace to Ice. Just leave the dungeon entrance and follow the mountains south until you see the peninsula.

Mauls quest requires you to bring him 20 raw fish steaks, which is why we purchased these ahead of time, before starting any of the quests.

Mark your fish steaks as a quest item and receive the Boon of Maul.



Huntsman - The Balance of Nature
The Huntsman is a Centaur located North of the Chaos Shrine in Trammel. The spawn around the area could include an occasional gargoyle or reaper, but most generally is safe.

This will be the hardest part for a crafting character to complete as it involves slaying 15 timber wolves. If you are a crafter, you will need to use your tamed beetle or perhaps buy a weaponry skill up enough to slay the wolves.

Remember that when you slay the wolves, you will need to keep the Huntsman on screen so the kill will count towards your quest. If you venture too far away from him, he will not see the kill and therefore, it will not count towards your quest.


Enigma - Wisdom of the Sphynx
Enigma is a Sphynx located just South of the Compassion Shrine in Trammel. For non-combatant characters, this will be the hardest to complete because of the surrounding spawn.

If the crafter is quick on his/her feet, the spawn is relatively easy to avoid and if you take your pitcher of water with you (remember, the pitcher of water?) You can accept the quest, toggle the pitcher of water to a quest item and complete the quest all while avoiding the spawn.

Enigma's quest is a riddle and the answer to the riddle is your quest item - the pitcher of water.

The riddle, in case you do it so fast so not to die is:

Three lives have I,
Gentle enough to soothe the skin,
Light enough to caress the sky,
Hard enough to crack rocks
What Am I?


And now we come full circle in our quest for Elven Heritage.

We return to Darius in Moonglow. Before entering the building, dismount yourself and strip yourself of all clothing, weapons and jewelry. Darius will complete the quest dialogue and you will then be offered to complete the quest and become an elf.

And so, it is done.
