The Staff of the Observers  

This quest starts when you loot an Old Telescopic Lens (buyable item - Check Broker) from one of the Kobolds found in the Steamfont Mountains, I looted mine around -375.42, 110.80, 514.67 After examining the Item, I should see if I could find a gnome that would know something about the old lens I found.

You can find the gnome to talk to in Steamfont Mountains at the Frugrin Observatory, The gnome you need to talk to is Vhizz Frugrin -955.86, 156.56, 739.75 I spoke to Vhizz Frugin and he told me the lens used to go to an old hand-held telescope. He then told me about the legendary Staff of the Observers.

I told Vhizz Frugrin that I would get him a new lens for "Blinkie" so that he could continue his search for the Staff of the Observers. He said I should try and find one by destroying a large and powerful evil eye. I need to find a large lens for "Blinkie". Where can I find a large and powerful evil eye? Head to Enchanted Lands, Then goto Runnyeye, and then goto the bottom to The Chamber of Rulgax, then fight your way all the way down to the last mob Lord Rulgax, kill him to get your Lens update.

Once you get the Lens of Rulgax head back to Vhizz Frugrin at the Frugrin Observatory in Steamfont Mountains. I gave the Lens of Rulgax to Vhizz Frugrin. He'll Install it in "Blinkie" while I work on gathering the catalysts. I need to collect three catalyst elements to power the M.A.S.S. device to make X-rays that see through rock and stone. This will let Vhizz Frugrin use "Blinkie" to find where the kobolds are hiding the Staff of the Observers.

  • I need to find the coldest mana infused crystals available. Where am I going to find those?
    • Go to Everfrost and then head to Icespire Summit, zone in and go to the last room kill everything in the room until Karg Icebear spawns then harvest the coldest mana infused crystals from the middle crystal.
  • I need to collect heavy oxidized mineral water from one of the geysers in Steamfont Mountains.
    • The Heavy Oxidized Mineral Water is located in the Steamfont Wetlands -588.28, 70.84, 1589.89 you need to harvest the point inside the geyser to get the update. The correct geyser will be named "Mineral Geyser". (NOTE: If you do this quest at a higher level where the mobs are greyed out, you will need to kill the three mobs around the geyser in order to be able the harvest the mineral and get the update).
  • I need to find molten mana infused stone. Where on Norrath am I going to find that?
    • The Molten Mana Infused Stone -411.68, -30.91, -580.68 is located in Lavastorm on the Mage Spire. If you can, take any of the spires to Lavastorm or if you are lucky you can get a Wizard or Warlock to open a portal for you, the update is right there.

Now that you have all the catalyst elements, You should return to Vhizz Frugrin in the Steamfont Mountains at the Frugrin Observatory so that he can use the M.A.S.S. device to create X-rays. Once you give Vhizz Frugrin the catalysts he goes to work, but something goes terribly wrong. Although Vhizz Frugrin blew himself up, he discovered that the Kobold King Grikbar currently holds the Staff of the Observers. Vhizz Frugrin mentioned he saw a Grikbar outcast being chased out of the kobold territory while wearing a key around his neck. That kobold might still have the key if I could find it.

You can find a grikbar outcast at -1200, 96, 1306 . You need to speak Serilian to be able to talk to a Grikbar outcast. Talk to him and he will not give you the key unless you do something for him, He wants revenge for being made an outcast.

  • You need to collect the tongue of the Grikbar kobold Pechpooka
    • Digmaster Pechpooka is located in the Grikbar Crater -174,44.21,1181.83
  • You need to collect the tongue of the Grikbar kobold Pechmooka
    • Slave Pechmooka is located in the Mines of Meldrath, not the instance but the caves/mines in the Steamfont Mountains -1394.36, 85.41, 1058.40
  • You need to collect the tongue of the Grikbar kobold Pechyooka
    • Scout Pechyooka is located around the Dragonscale Hills he roams the area so you will probably need a scout to track him down for you.

Then return to a Grikbar outcast with the tongues, you give the tongues to a Grikbar outcast and he gives you the key to the cavern. Now that you have the key you can enter King Grikbar's Cavern, (King Grikbar's Cavern is located in the Grikbar Crater on the south side you will see a cave called The Lair of the Rex it is in the back behind a Banner -69.72, 80.10, 1294.77 King Grikbar and recover the Staff of the Observers. Make certain that you kill everything leading up to the King, as he will call all remaining adds to his aid.

Once you are in King Grikbar's Cavern fight your way to the back right were you will find King Grikbar, the Scourge of Steamfont, to activate him touch his food bucket. Be sure you are ready when you do this because he will auto attack you after a few lines of dialogue. NOTE: Clear out the entire zone first, even if it is greyed out--otherwise King Grikbar will summon every living kobold in the zone to him! After the king dies, the quest will auto-complete.
