'Scholarship, is it? A fine choice for any self-respecting dwarf!.

'Studying the past and learning its secrets can be a very rewarding profession. Of course, there are some dangers involved with finding those secrets in the first place, but with a healthy sense of adventure, anything is possible.

'Go and see Makan, here in the Craft Hall. He will set you on the path to becoming another in a long litany of fine scholars.'


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.

  • You should speak with Makan in the Frerin's Court Craft Hall to learn more about scholarship.

  • Makan 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.
