Follow Hanbahd the Anchorite to the resting place of the Lost Scriptures and defend him from the attacking Margonites. Return the scriptures to the library of Chokhin.

Quest information[edit]


  • Follow Hanbahd the Anchorite to the place where he hid the Lost Scriptures.
  • Eliminate the Margonites trying to steal the Lost Scriptures. Hanbahd must survive.
  • Bring the Lost Scriptures to Kachok.



Before accepting this quest it may be helpful to kill some of the wandering mobs nearby, since Hanbahd will move off very quickly when the quest is accepted and will not stand around waiting for the party.

Hanbahd will run off to an enclosed area a little to the west of his starting point, where the Lost Scriptures bundle item will appear when he arrives. This is also the trigger for several waves of Margonites to launch an attack on the party and Hanbahd.

When all the Margonites have been killed, pickup the Lost Scriptures and carry them back to Kachok, who is waiting in the library in the Halls of Chokhin, to collect your reward.


Initial dialogue[edit]

Hanbahd the Anchorite
"I did indeed find those most holy scriptures. But that is not the question. The question is, are you ready to gain the knowledge of truth? The glory of His wisdom is more than any human can understand, but I am His chosen and have been granted these secrets to keep. Follow me and we shall journey together to the holy place where the scriptures have been hidden. By speaking to me, you are blessed. Or cursed. Or both. Shall we depart?"
Yes Accept: "Yes, I am ready."
No Decline: "Book reading? Boooring."
Ask Ask: "Come, I shall be your guide on the path to enlightenment. To the scriptures!"

Reward dialogue[edit]

"Ha! I knew he was bloody mad. He's been babbling about his forgotten god ever since he got back. You should have left him where you found him if you ask me. But enough of that raving loony...the scriptures! This is the find of the century! Such exciting times we live in. Odd, though, how those creatures have taken an interest in this artifact, isn't it? I can't wait to tell the others. They will be quite eager to get to work!"


  • Hanbahd is easy to protect, since he stands back in a corner away from the Margonites, the party simply has to ensure they stand forward of him to intercept the attacking creatures.
