Giltekh the Alchemist organized an expedition to this remote island on Aradoth because of a rare plant that grows here. You helped him honor her memory by creating a potion he called Niesa's Rub. Now, he may be ready to teach you how to make the potion yourself.

Quest text[edit]

Giltekh tells you, <player>, I wish to thank you for helping me make possible. Without you I could not have gathered either the Vilitis Bulb, the Frozen Carapaces or even the Frozen Essence. Niesa herself would have been proud of me for following through on this and of you for providing help when someone asked.

Giltekh tells you, Only someone who practiced alchemy itself could understand the complexities and subtle nuances of potion-making and in particular of recipes such as this. It is because of this and our shared interest that I have decided to make this potion available to others, such as yourself.

Giltekh tells you, What I would have you do is collect and process both ingredients as well as the catalyst and then return here to me. I will review them and we will see what further steps you might take.

Giltekh tells you, Ah, good, there you are. Let me take a look at what you've brought me. *he scrutinizes each ingredient in turn* These will be sufficient.

Giltekh tells you, There is but one more step on your path, <player>. Take this letter to Grandmaster Barrakhen in Kirasanct and register this new potion with the Guild of Alchemists. Only then will it be placed for review and considered an official Imperial potion and only then will Niesa and I be given credit for its creation.

You have received 1 Letter for Grandmaster Barrakhen.

Barrakhen tells you, <player>, speak or leave. I am quite busy and have little time to talk of the weather or the war. A new potion you say? From whom? Giltekh! Now that is a name I have not heard in some time.

Barrakhen tells you, A new recipe... Interesting. Ah, Niesa, yes I should have known. A brilliant alchemist, that one. Her loss was incalculable to the Empire. She would have been Grandmaster one day, you know?

Barrakhen tells you, Giltekh wishes to register this new recipe, does he? His application seems to be in order and this recipe, while unorthodox, meets all of the Imperial requirements. We will assess a fee of him, but that can be taken care of at a later date. For now, I see no reason to delay approval.

Barrakhen tells you, *he stamps the paper and places it into a satchel at his side.* Yes, no reason to delay. *he writes furiously on a piece of parchment and then hands it to you* Here is the formula, <player>, use it well.
