Alchemist Finklestein at Heb'Valok wants you to find a Muddy Mire Maggot, a Withered Batwing, an Amberseed, and some Chilled Serpent Mucus from within his laboratory.


I assume by your interruption that you wish to be numbered among those I am considering for apprenticeship.

A worthy aspiration...

Should I someday choose to accept your petition, I must be confident that you can find your way around my laboratory. I have many ingredients here; some plentiful, and others in short supply.

Take your time, <class>. Find a muddy mire maggot, a withered batwing, an amberseed, and some chilled serpent mucus.

Succeed, and I'll know to take your request seriously.


You will receive: 6Gold 20Silver


Have you become accustomed to my laboratory, <class>?


Yes, yes, that's a good start.

Should I call upon you to help me with an actual recipe, you'll need to locate ingredients in a timely manner.

Keep that in mind, <class>.

The following table lists the four bookcases in each of the two rooms and what shelf each item is on in its respective bookcase. The bookcases are ordered going counterclockwise from the southeast, an illustration of which can be found in the image to the right.

For example, a Blight Crystal can be found in the left room in the western bookcase on the second shelf from the bottom.

Don't worry about the time limit on the items, as long as they were looted, they count.

The daily quest version does care about the time, so move quickly. The last component for the daily quest is a "single" item, one that is only present one time. All other components required for the daily quests are present multiple times.
