Retrieve the Orrian tome from the Am Fah's guild hall located in the Undercity so that Minister Jaisan can create Signets of Capture.

Quest information[edit]



  • Infiltrate the Am Fah and eavesdrop upon the Am Fah, without being noticed, to learn the location of the Orrian Tomes.
  • Capture the Orrian Tome from the Am Fah.
  • See Minister Jaisan for your reward.



For the quickest route, enter Wajjun Bazaar from Nahpui Quarter, then head to the entrance of the Undercity. Soon after entering, at point 1, you'll come across 2 bandits standing on a bridge. Wait until they finish talking before you attack, that way the quest will update. After the quest updates, kill the bandits and follow the path to 2, where the Am Fah Leader is. Kill him and the Orrian Tome will drop. Return the Tome to Minister Jaisan to complete the quest.





Initial dialogue[edit]

Minister Jaisan
"Always thinking of the people it serves, the Celestial Ministry has been creating Signets of Capture to help assist our citizens and make the capturing of skills effortless. Most unfortunately, however, the Orrian tome we used in the creation of these Signets was stolen in a raid organized by the Am Fah. I do not think I need to tell you how imperative it is that we get the tome back from them immediately. My sources tell me that the Am Fah are holding the tome deep inside their guild hall; no doubt their leader recognizes the power it holds, and is keeping it close at hand. If you wish to serve Cantha, I suggest you capture the Orrian tome and return it to me that I may continue to produce Signets of Capture for all Canthan citizens. Well, at least for those who can afford to pay for them.
You will, of course, accept this task?
Yes Accept: "Of course! I will track down and return the tome."
No Decline: "I'm sure the Am Fah will use the tome to do good works."
Ask Ask: "Retrieve the Orrian tome from the Am Fah's guild hall, which is located in the Undercity. And be quick about it!"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Am Fah Bandit: Did you see the look on the face of the Ministry of Earth when he found out that the Orrian tome [sic] was gone?
Am Fah Bandit: It was priceless!
Am Fah Bandit: I only wish I could have captured that look and shown it to all our guildmates.
Am Fah Bandit: Those ministry fools never saw it comming, and even if they did, they could not have stopped the Am Fah!
Am Fah Bandit: I am with you on that one. I mean...why does the boss have to keep it at his side, anyway?
Am Fah Bandit: Shhhh! Keep that quiet. The officers don't want us talking about its location.
Am Fah Bandit: Yeah, yeah, whatever. It's not like anyone could take the tome back from us.
Am Fah Bandit: Sure, but keep it down just in case someone is looking for it. You never know....
Am Fah Bandit: Alright, alright. I get you. I'm off to guard duty. See you around.
(Both leave for the guildhall.)
Bug Bug.Although this is supposed to be a conversation between two bandits, only one of them does any talking. Because of this, it is possible to kill the non-speaking one and continue the quest. However, the quest log will state that the quest fails.

Reward dialogue[edit]

Minister Jaisan
The Orrian Tome! You found it! You have no idea how dangerous this tome could be in the wrong hands.... You know, I had my doubts about you, but it appears you aren't completely useless as some of my fellow ministers would have me believe. Now, I must get back to work creating more Signets of Capture.
