The Maiden of Masks  

This quest is for the Fabled version of the Illusionist-only Epic Weapon, Mirage Star.

  1. Kill Rilissian slavers near the Western Pens in Fens of Nathsar until you get a pens cell door key as a body drop.
  2. Free the Tofus Jepner at -693, -127, 684 from his cell using the key. Follow him around the corner and hail him.
  3. Perform the Illusions he asks of you in order and chat to him again to receive the quest.

  1. Find Tabbin Juniper in Kylong Plains. He wanders the road to Ryjesium Peaks near The Brute Gathering and Brakthyr's Post. Reported locations: 250, 157, -1240 and 356, 286, -1523 . The guards in Teren's Grasp can direct you to him.
  2. Tabbin sends you to Karnor's Castle to find three items: a drum, a mandolin, and a performance mask.
    • The Mask is a small chest drop from trash mobs; sentries and elites hav eboth been known to drop it.
    • The Mandolin drops from an iksar entertainer in the mess hall, which is at -143, -55, 180 . the entertainer has a five minute respawn.
    • The Drum can be found in Commander's Quarters inside of a chest. Make sure you have show illusions ON in your Persona window, and be prepared for a fight when you click the chest.
      • Click the chest at -189, -41, 53 . As soon as you click it, a group of three advisors will spawn and attack you.
      • Click on the painting at -189, -41, 89 , across the room from the chest.
      • Click the chest again once you have killed the advisors in order to get the update.
      • If you have chosen to hide illusions, this step will bug and you will not get the drum from the chest when you click on it the second time. If you get bugged you need to camp and relog to fix it.
  3. Return to Tabbin Juniper. He'll give you The Maiden of Masks, Incomplete. Unfortunately, he has torn out all the pages and used them as IOU's to pay his tabs at different bars across Norrath. Go find all the pages. Examine them like a collection to assemble the book.
  4. Speak to Goldie Sams at Omen's Call in Fens of Nathsar. It turns out Tabbin owes her 185 platinum and 2 copper. Thankfully she lets you pay off the debt by bringing her more fish meat.
    • Kill 100 Yha-lei for auto-updates. There are plenty of fishmen in the ruins south of Omen's Call.
    • Return to Goldie Sams. She gives you The Maiden of Masks - Page 2 and a clue as to where you can find the next page.
  5. The Maiden of Masks - Page 3 is a body drop off the The Sadistic Bartender in The Estate of Unrest in Butcherblock Mountains.
    • Note that only one illusionist can get the update from the The Sadistic Bartender at a time.
    • Due to the rapid elemental effects cast by the bartender, a DPS and healer are strongly recommended.
  6. The Maiden of Masks - Page 4 is found in Kaladim. Click the page in the tavern room before the Queen at -144, 45, -77 . This will spawn a level 83^^^ Golem. Kill it, and click the page again to get the update.
    • The mob is root/stun/mezzable so is possible to defeat solo.
  7. For the next step, fetch a Cask of Blood Wine from Neriak. The cask is located in the D'Morte Inn in the very back of the New Foreign Quarters at 173, 30, 200 .
    • Invisibility works against all the guards, but only if you don't have any pets up (including deity and cosmetic pets).
    • Go to Kelethin in Greater Faydark. Speak to Jysolin Nerala in the tavern near the Granite Hills Acorn lift at 203, 108, 342 . He sends you off to get a cask of Blood Wine, which you have already gathered. Give it to him and receive The Maiden of Masks - Page 5.
  8. The Maiden of Masks - Page 6 is obtained by visiting Rumdum at -235, -55, 13 in the bar in East Freeport and giving away your Stein of Moggok.
    • The stein must be unmounted, or else Rumdum won't accept it.
    • After completing this step, you may buy the stein back from the Shady Swashbuckler, so you do not have to permanently lose it.
  9. To obtain The Maiden of Masks - Page 7, hail the bartender at -450, 2, -135 in the Laughing Trout in Rivervale and offer to rescue a damsel in distress and save the world. He settles for a couple of gold though, so collect your page and be on your way. (Note: you must speak Stout to receive this update.)
  10. The Maiden of Masks - Page 8 can be found in The Golden Scepter in Maj'Dul. Be prepared to fight as you hail Ahzeem The Bartermaster at 64, 147, -145 on the bottom floor. After the second dialog choice, 2 groups of 4 83^^ guards spawn and auto-aggro you. After killing the groups speak to the bartender again to receive the page.
    • You probably won't be able to solo them fast enough, so bring a tank and DPS. You can let the mobs wipe you and then revive inside the Golden Scepter. This way you can take on the mobs one group at a time. If the bartender dies and you finish both encounters fast enough before his corpse despawns, you can still right-click and hail his corpse and get your update.
  11. To obtain The Maiden of Masks - Page 9 speak with Lanice at -1897.82, -36.02, -612.31 in Windstalker Village in Antonica. She asks you to bring her a number of T8 carpenter crafted items, stating the subquest Paying Off a Tab: Redecoration. You cannot have the items in inventory when you first receive the quest, or you will lose the items and not get the updates.
    • You can get the items any way you like: crafting them, purchasing them on the broker, or having them commissioned by a carpenter.
      • 4 redwood stools
      • 6 ornate ferrite chairs (the quest calls them ferrite ornate chairs)
      • 10 leather stitched cushions
      • 3 round redwood gaming tables (the quest calls them redwood gaming round tables)
      • 5 redwood tables
    • Return to Lanice, hand in the furniture, and receive page 9 in return.
  12. For The Maiden of Masks - Page 10 talk to Angelia Clayton at the Mermaid's Lure in Qeynos Province District. Go and speak to Molly Daysun. (Post-GU64 location:Elddar Grove at 529, -17, -388 )
    • You'll get a new illusion: Human Youth, which is auto-scribed and will be found in your Knowledge book under Spells.
    • Head over to Qeynos Province District and talk to Nathan Ironforge, a pesky brat who runs rampant around the zone. It's probably easiest to ask a guard where to find him. Make sure you have your new illusion active. You'll receive a doll from Nathan. Take the doll back to Molly who will give you Page 10 in return.
  13. The Maiden of Masks - Page 11 - Speak to Turluk Qukila, the Bartender in Teren's Grasp at 2200, 525, -980 . He'll tell you he no longer has it. However Tibby Joopin, who's standing right next to him, calls for your attention. Speak to her to receive the last page.
    • Make sure you've examined all the pages and cover to add them to the collection. Go to the collector down by the Sokokar post ( 1931, 480, -771 ) , to turn in the collected pages and receive The Maiden Of Masks. (Any collector will do, but this one is most convenient.)
    • Return to Tibby. She gives you a challenge to find six different rare masks. In return she will reward you with a powerful wand.
  14. Obtain the six masks in any order. Obtaining these masks will not grant any updates until you have turned them in to Tibby.

      3. After doing some walking around with the illusion on she gives you a performer's pass.

      2. The guards will drop a key, and the Captured Drogan Witchdoctor will attack you (84^^^ heroic that can charm). This mob hits like a truck; bringing help is a good idea.

        • You must be in illusion form or he will fly away and despawn (don't worry, he will respawn 2 minutes later).
      3. After some chat, Twocan will become attackable. You need to engage him for 2 minutes, but not kill him. Just keep him mezzed, and after the 2 minutes he should give you the mask.
