Tablet of Draconic Runes

You must have prior knowledge of the Krombral language to be able to complete this quest.

This lengthy quest allows you to speak Draconic. This language is necessary to receive the Fire and Ice and Deception quests from Lord Nagafen. You must also know this language to complete the Epic Repercussions quest. It is listed as a Hallmark quest in your journal. You must be at least level 50 to be given this quest.

  1. Before starting, you will need to speak to Sebir the Historian ( -167, -9, -546 ) in the Solusek Valley in Lavastorm. You will then need to take part in a small event inside Maiden's Gulch: Rescue of the Sage, and after defeating a named drakota, Vyr'drais the Vicious, you will be able to speak to The Sage of Ages, who then offers you this quest.
  2. Our next goal is to venture deep in Solusek's Eye and into Nagafen's Lair. If this is your first time in Nagafen's Lair, you will be zoned into a single group instance of the zone named The Oratorium of Thyr, where you will have to fight your way through. There are ~15 level 50^^ mobs to be defeated, culminating with Flamelord Thyr. Whoever hails the Flamelord will be banished to a cage, so you should probably have a healer or a caster do this. You will then have to kill his minions and then the Flamelord himself. He is a ^^^ heroic mob. After defeating him you can use the door behind him to re-enter Solusek's Eye. After this you should head up the steps and into Nagafen's Lair. Follow the path and use The Gong of Ro to enter the lair.
  3. Once inside Nagafen's Lair, you try to hail Lord Nagafen, yet he will not respond to you because you do not speak draconic! However, there is a giant in front of Nagafen, named Majordomo Inferinus, who will speak to you as long as you have mastered the giant language, Krombral. Speak to him to advance the quest and he will tell you to look for another sage somewhere in Antonica.
  4. Head to the Oracle Tower in Antonica and speak to to the sage at the top of the tower. He'll explain how complicated the language is, and that it would take you forever to collect all the runes; however, you will convince him that you'll be able to do it. He then sends you to collect 26 runes scattered all over Norrath.
    • NOTE With GU56, if you have completed this quest on one character, that character may go to Shady Swashbuckler XVIII and purchase a copy of Tablet of Draconic Runes. Place it in your shared bank and characters on this step of the quest may read it to learn the runes instead of running all over Norrath.
