What Dreams May Come  

To get certain components of this quest you will need to have done or be working on the tradeskill Flying Mount series and have completed Ship Out in Moors of Ykesha. You will also need 40k faction with Forgemasters of Thurgadin.
The recipes require a level 90 crafter.
See the bottom of this page for the shopping list.

Speak to Tora in the Vision of the Past to begin this quest. She asks you to do what you can to release the spirits of the Coldain.

    • To exit the instance, turn around. There's a standard round portal behind you. You can fly to the docks via the Griffon near Tora.
  2. Speak to Fenwick at 1293, -540, 474 . Ask him about Brell.
  3. Search the library in Brell's temple in Thurgadin for information about the shawl. It's a scroll at 475, -211, 237 , on the second shelf from the bottom. Pick it up to receive Personal Notes of Lorekeeper Solstrin. If you're an Armorer or Tailor, be sure to grab the extra recipe scroll at 475, -211, 237 next to it!

Shopping List

Special Items Not Obtained During the Quest


  • 1 brellium (T9 rare ore)
  • 2 sumac lumber
  • 2 titanium ore
  • 1 ethereal material
  • 1 iceclad swordfish (fished only in Velious)
  • 3 iceclad cutlassfish (fished only in Velious)
  • 1 Molkor Hide (trapped only in Velious)
  • 2 manticore mane (rare, trapped only in Velious)



Some items can be pre-combined for you for the step in which you need an item from every tradeskill class. However, it is very important that you do not get too ahead of your quest's progression, as these steps update one-by-one, unlike the tradeskill epic quest!

  • You can have the Carpenter, Weaponsmith, Alchemist, Provisioner and Tailor items pre-made at any time.
  • DO NOT get the Armorer update before getting the Carpenter update. The Armorer update consumes the item in the process.
  • DO NOT get the Woodworker update before getting the Armorer and Weaponsmith updates. The Woodworker update consumes both of their items in the process.
  • DO NOT get the Sage update before getting the Alchemist and Provisioner updates. The Sage update consumes both of their items in the process.
  • DO NOT get the Jeweler update before getting the Woodworker and Sage updates. The Jeweler update consumes both of their items in the process.

After the class combines you will be left with the Tailor and Jeweler combines. If you are having items made for other crafter alts, ensure that you log them in and pull the items out of shared bank to update their quests before those items are consumed.

If you do mess up and get ahead of yourself, you will need one more of each class's item that you skipped over. For instance, if you get the Sage combine done before having the Alchemist and Provisioner updates, you will need those two class items again.

To play this part completely safe, you'll want to not have any pre-combines done aside from Carpenter and Tailor! As long as you keep yourself in check, though, it is feasible to make some progress while waiting for other class combines.
