Skill requirement: None!**
Flag requirement: None (but you NEED access to Elemental Planes in order to do this step)
**No additional requirements needed (of course, you must have met the requirements for steps 1-7 in order to be given this last task)
Following Grimel's advice, hailing the councilman gives a quest similar to Secrets of the Planes: Go fetch a Hope Stone! This step has been verified to NOT be MQable. The councilman will reject items that are turned in to him one at a time. Turn in the signet and the Hope Stone, and you will receive a disgustingly droolworthy earring.
You say, 'Hail, Councilman Taldarius'
Councilman Taldarius regards you, and grins. 'Greetings, ____. I am Councilman Taldarius, mighty Paladin of Mithaniel Marr and Guardian of the City of Tanaan! If you cannot find what you are looking for here in the Myrist library, I most certainly can add it to my list of things to look for in the Planes. Unfortunately, I am quite busy at the moment, planning my next trip to the Elemental Planes. I believe my aid may have some tasks he could use help with. That is, if you are skilled enough.' man about the signet.'
You say, 'What about the Marked Runed Signet'
Councilman Taldarius says 'I see you have helped Grimel immensely. He would not have given up his signet very easily. I cannot let him deprive himself of such a valuable tool. If you were to do a task for me I would grant you something I picked up in the Planes. Are you interested in the task?'
You say, 'i am interested in the task'
Councilman Taldarius says 'Very well ____. I warn you I will not grant this without proof that you possess a valiant spirit. You may have the trust of my aid but I still require a noble deed. Through research done by the council they have discovered something called a Hope Stone that exists in the Elemental Planes. Bring me one of these stones and the signet of Grimel. Fear not I shall reward you well.'
Turn in the Marked Runed Signet and The Hope Stone to get:
Turn in text:
Councilman Taldarius says 'Wonderful! You have proven yourself as both a Master of the Trade as well as a valiant spirit. Take this and may it serve you well! If this signet does not suffice, bring it back to me and i will exchange it for one more attuned to your needs.'
You gain experience!!
If you have a mana bar (other than bards), you will recieve this:Signet of the Arcane
If you are a pure melee or bard, you will receive this:Signet of Might
It has been reported by various folks, the trade-in does indeed work to swap earrings. However, it has also been thoroughly tested to be sure that you CANNOT get BOTH the Signet Of The Arcane and Signet Of Might via turnins. The test included leaving the signet on a corpse in a different zone, and when the you try to turn in the Marked Runed Signet and The Hope Stone, they are returned to you. If you are actually wearing either Signet Of The Arcane or Signet Of Might when you attempt the turnin, he will NOT return the items (this has been reported to Sony as a bug, if you make this mistake, petition), and say:
Councilman Taldarius says 'You have proven yourself as both a Master of the Trade, as a valiant spirit, and an ally to the cause, but I fear I have nothing else to give to an adventurer of your caliber.'
