'It looks as though you have strayed a little ways from home, Elf, and you want to learn about scholarship?

'It seems, then, that you have come to the right place.

'You want to speak with Thavroniel in the crafting area. She will be able to set you upon the path of scholarship.'


Scholars study the ancient and not-so-ancient past to divine the secrets that were kept there. They can craft many wondrous treasures by learning of the past that can result in potions, oils, and scrolls which can enhance you and your fellows.

Be careful! You will need to complete the correct recipes and deliver the correct items outlined in this quest.

You will need to execute the minor scholar lore recipes and deliver the minor scholar lore scroll. Failing to do so will force you to obtain new raw materials or to restart the quest after a 24-hour delay.


Objective 1

  • Speak with Thavroniel in the crafting area.
  • You should speak with Thavroniel at the Crafting Terrace in Celondim to learn more about scholarship.

    Objective 2

  • Open the crate given to you by Thavroniel to collect two aged scraps of text and early Third Age relic
  • Thavroniel provided you with a crate full of ingredients that you can use to execute the scroll of minor scholar lore recipe. Open the crate to get the ingredients.

    Ingredients for Scholars are normally purchased from vendors or found near ruins, inside chests, and rarely upon sentient enemies. You can also find ingredients on the Auction Hall.

    Objective 3

  • Using the ingredients you received, craft a scroll of minor scholar lore
  • Thavroniel provided you with the ingredients necessary to create a scroll of minor scholar lore.

    Objective 4

  • Bring the scroll of minor scholar lore to Thavroniel
