The DDO Compendium is going away, and like much of the other DDO-related web presence, will not be replaced. I am rewriting and transferring some of the references that I created from the Compendium to this site while I can. These articles refer to older quests, but I still use the information, sporadically, while re-leveling my TR characters.
SOS Item Collectors
Even though the quest Stealer of Souls is not a raid, it requires a complicated unlocking process:
- Present any three of the six dragon gems to Thear in Reavers Refuge
- Present the complete set of three dragon essences to Toriavic in Reavers Refuge
Note that step (1) is only necessary once, while step (2) is necessary each time you wish to restart the quest.
Six regional dragon gems exist but only three are needed to unlock the quest. It does not matter which three gems you provide, any will work.
Each of the dragon gems drops in a different explorer zone.
|Gem||Color||Drops In Zone|
|Sventusk’s||White||Ruins of Gianthold|
|Thadargix’s||Black||Sands of Menechtarun|
|Vuthesjing’s||Black||Orchard of the Macabre|
One may avoid having to re-acquire and re-submit all three
gems essences each time the quest is completed by avoiding the end reward. Don’t talk to Vorace (the end reward item giver and Essence vendor) at all if you are attempting this technique.
Alternately, Vorace will sell you essences, obviating the need to re-run one or more quests, for Draconic Runes. Note that Vorace will not vend anything until you have completed Stealer of Souls once.
|Essence||Gem Color||Drops in Quest|
|Eberron||White||Prey on the Hunter|
|Khyber||Black||Enter the Kobold|
|Siberys||Yellow||Monastery of the Scorpion|
