Quest guide

Each vocation is needed for this quest. There are four different spheres, one for each vocation.
Paladins need to enter the ice sphere and for that they need 20 Small Enchanted Sapphires.
Sorcerers need to enter the fire sphere and for that they need 20 Small Enchanted Rubies.
Druids need to enter the earth sphere and for that they need 20 Small Enchanted Emeralds.
Knights need to enter the energy sphere and for that they need 20 Small Enchanted Amethysts.

After you got all the items you need and lots of supplies you start by going to Edron Magic Academy, here:



Now walk this way to get to Arkulius:



Talk with him like this to start the quest (paladin transcripts):

Chatlog
You: Hi

You: Alverus
Arkulius: It happened while he carried out an experiment concerning the creation of the elemental shrines. I still get goose bumps just by thinking of it. ...
Arkulius: You need to know about the process of creating an elemental shrine to understand it completely, but I don't want to go into detail now. ...
Arkulius: Anyway, his spell had a different outcome than he had planned. He accidentally created an Ice Overlord, pure living elemental ice, who froze him in a blink of an eye.
You: Shrines
Arkulius: The creation of the elemental shrines is a really complex matter. They are actually nodes, locations where the matching elemental sphere is very close. ...
Arkulius: The shrine itself is like a portal between our world and the elemental sphere and enables us to use the elemental energy emerging from it.
You: Sphere
Arkulius: There are four spheres we know of: ice, fire, earth and energy. .... Hmmm, should I ask or not?....The heck with it! Now that you know about the spheres ...
Arkulius: I found a way to visit them. It's VERY dangerous and there is a decent chance that you won't come back BUT if you succeed you'll write history!!! Ask me about that mission if you're interested.
You: Mission
Arkulius: Okay, listen closely: First of all, you need to gather 20 enchanted sapphires in order to go to the ice sphere. Deep under the academy, one floor below the elemental shrines, there is a machine. Put the gems in there and activate it. ...
Arkulius: Once you got there, find a way to gather elemental ice in any form. You will face ice elementals, that's for sure, but I don't know how the ice is stored. ...
Arkulius: Anyway, there should be a way to use that elemental ice and strengthen one of the elementals. If my calculations are right, you will create an Ice Overlord who hopefully will consist of some sort of 'concentrated' ice or something similar. ...
Arkulius: THAT'S what we need!! Are you in on it?
You: Yes
Arkulius: Good, don't waste time! Come back here when you have the elemental object!
You: Bye
Arkulius: At last! Good things come to those who wait.

Make sure you get all the supplies you need before you enter your sphere. Now get to the building in the middle of the Edron Magic Academy, it's also the biggest tower. Go down to floor -3. You will find a machine here, use 20 of the right gems on it.




Now turn it on. You will get to your sphere.

In here you will need to get 8 soils, for example 8 iced soils in the ice sphere. It's quite hard to get the soils. It's easier to get them when the spawn is fast. Sometimes it might take 1 hour to get 2 soils while other times you can get the soils very fast. In both cases it's usually waste because the elementals do high dmg, are strong to physical, have much hitpoints and heal. For mages the main problem is their damage while for knights and pallies it's the fact that they are strong to physical worst.
It's risky for all vocations. The best is to avoid groups and avoid the harder elementals. For pallies it's best to use enchanted spears or assassin stars and exori san. Both are waste but it's safer to have assassin stars. The roaring water elementals are very fast and waste, try to avoid them.
If you need to get more supplies you need to have 20 Enchanted Gems to enter again which means a cost of at least 10k of costs more. If you got all 8 soils you need to get to the place where the boss spawns. In the case of sorcerers there are 8 lavaholes while for pallies there are 8 ice cubes.
In the case of pallies the 8 ice cubes are located in north part of the ice sphere. Just go north from the teleporter and you will find it. If you find the circle with 8 objects, in this case ice cubes you will need to drag a fresh body of an elemental there. Use each soil on each object.

After you used all soils you will have 2 minutes to summon as many Overlords as you can by moving the elemental body.

The Overlord is not as dangerous as he sounds, for example the Roaring Water Elementals are more waste than Ice Overlord but if you summon more than 1 it can be dangerous. Also, always remember to stay diagonal from him, his most(and only) lethal attack is his ice beam:

Apart from that he also paralyzes you with an Ice Storm:

(note: the other overlords do the same attacks, just in their own elemental damage)

The overlord always drops the boss item. When you get it, you need to go to Alverus and report your mission like this:


Now you can relax until you find 3 players of the 3 other vocs that got the boss items needed.
