The outside of this golden locket has been scortched by
some kind of powerful
attack. On the inside, two tiny bone arms with hands
have been fastened to
a pin in the center of the locket. It appears they are
designed to rotate
around the pin, however both arms are currently stuck in
an upright position.
The initials XG have been carved into the inside lid of
the locket...It has a soft glowing aura!

From an outdoors room in Plane of Salt.

There are certainly other spells that may need to be up. Also it's not clear whether you need to planar from plane of salt, or a specific room in plane of salt.

I read the notes again, and maybe I am overseeing things but there is a slightly odd reference to Xicilia in regards to the plague which makes me think something resistant/healing spell could be worth trying.

I've popped a lot of notes now, to the point where I doubt there are new ones, unless new ones have been added in the reboot. I suspect the clue about the spells, we potentially already have, but can't see.

It's also not clear whether these two spells are fine with other spells being up, or perhaps they don't work well with others.

I'm focusing most of my effort on forging the staff, but admit this may take longer than jagging the conditions to planar in first.

Ok, so things are coming together, but we still could be ages out from establishing access.

It seems we have 3 of the 5 conditions...

1) Plane of Salt - Any outdoor room
2) Weather must be stormy
3) Must be midnight
4) Some spell
5) Some spell

Regarding the staff... I have loaded the following components...

*** 1x a cube of elemental salt (0), SALT PLANE
*** 1x a smoldering eyestalk (0), MAGMA PLANE
*** 1x a cloud of floating embers (0), LIGHTNING PLANE
*** 1x an orb of positive energy (0), POSITIVE PLANE
*** 1x a pair of devil's horns (0), CAINA
*** 1x a bundle of uncut rubies (0), FIRE PLANE
*** 1x an ancient clay tablet (0), EARTH PLANE
*** 1x a clutch of salmon roe (0), WATER PLANE
*** 1x a balloon (0), AIR PLANE
*** 1x a tome of evil scriptures (0), GEHENNA
*** 1x a jagged sliver of bone (0), PLANE OF ICE
*** 1x a vial of aether (0), ETHER PLANE
*** 1x a mirror of shadows (0), NEG PLANE

I have these to go... in these zones...

1x a flask of elemental flame (0), FIRE PLANE EXT
1x a clockwork puzzle box (0), PLANAR NEXUS

The following are proc loaders which neptune has told me...
Neptune (tell): they dont load normally is why
Neptune (tell): and they are assigned to the areas, not the mobs in particular'

1x a single drop of water (0), (WATER PLANE EXT???)
1x an oblong pebble (0), (EARTH PLANE EXT???)
1x a tiny vortex (0), (AIR PLANE EXT????)
1x a puff of smoke (0), (SMOKE PLANE????)
1x a reborn particle (0) ???

I need people to run Neptunes original planes and kill the small mobs so the proc loaders can be found. Tomorrow is an EU day so I'd appreciate the help. Help has been a bit thin besides from Waza and Driven this far.

I followed the story line and started poking around the BH Asylum. Critter has been running the area for a couple days and has popped a couple of confidential files off the aged gnome. So far 2 have popped but don't have anything to do with Xicilia... my guess is there are other mons that pop the files as well.

Bless, and possibly bard songs, but I'm leaning toward Hermetic Resonance being required.

Hermetic Resonance fits the story with bad things happening when there are 2 hermetic resonances active, including being bad for the fabric of existence. I once used it against Lord Morrigan in Castle Black and and up being blasted into another zone, drained of all my mana.

I'm currently trying to planar shift from Plane of Salt rooms with multiple spells up, including Hermetic Resonance, which spell to protect against is a question. Leaning towards lightning bolt or thunder clap.

If someone wants to do better than Driven - which shouldn't be hard given this list, then be my guest.

There are two things I would suggest...

1) Favour necro spells - include the ones Driven missed. (O X)
2) Don't discount what the notes say about Xicilia's health or condition. It might be possible that one of the spells that needs to be up might be a disease or negative affect.

I have taken a gander at the loading of the staff components
and it appears as if some of them mysteriously unloaded
themselves from consideration and selection. That should
be resolved now.

Let us know if you run into any more issues.

Thanks, hope that helps.

Took almost 2 days of cycling Asylum, but I finally popped the final clue off the analyst.

There is something written upon it:

Patient File: XAPF-00734673023
We have not been able to locate Xicilia for several
days, which leads me
to believe she has escaped the facility. I have asked
our guests if any
of them have seen her. One of the madmen upstairs
reported that she entered his room through the crack below the door, as a cloud of
mist, and threatened
to kill him and then reanimate his corpse if he told
anyone. One of the
orderlies also saw her in the courtyard that same
morning. When he went to
apprehend her, she uttered some strange words and a
thick fog surrounded her.
Xicilia has not been seen since.
A confidential file crumbles in your hands.

Kudos to Teker (and Neptune) for a great quest line and method of getting to the rebirth shop. It took us quite a while to figure all of this out. I will not post the full condition on the forum so that others have the pleasure of having the excitement of reading the clues appropriately and seeing their knowledge pay off. I will not spoil the surprise of what the area is actually like, either, but I strongly advise against being in the room when a 9x40 rebirth planar shifts under the proper conditions. Strongly.

Happy hunting!

That's correct, plant consumed by humans or other animals as food.

However the exponential modifier will kick in fairly quickly I would imagine, so I wouldn't get too excited. I'm really pleased to see it. I'm hoping shop might be expanded at some point, ie, perm spells? For example you probably just lost 3 dam on your warcry for solo in the changes recently, so net effect of buying damage in the shop is already 0. Considering the eq and proc weapon changes recently, +6 weapon damage is closer to 5% of the improvement we've had recently. The mage gauntlets are the most insane increase ever, next to the already insane Sphairai and Winterblade. To some degree the shop improvements are really quite constrained compared to almost anything that's gone in the past year. Having already purchased most of the working damages in the shop and being a player who measures numbers, although I am definitely more powerful, I am not getting xp much faster, because literally half the game++ is spent actually moving between targets... and +6 dam on typical xp mobs won't even kill a mob a whole round faster... what we will notice though is groups kill group mobs far quicker.

One might assume that a players power constrains his own ability to gain xp... and it does... but game mechanics such as regen, moving between mobs, the time each round takes, xp caps actually control the speed of the game more than we imagine. I think we will sense grouping is more powerful before we see powerful players... The way the game works at the moment solo, even +10 dam hardly would kill a typical xp mob 1 round faster... but add +10dam to everyone in the group... Already groups can run half the epics back to back without a regen, and the xp/time is fairly poor. I think any problems that arise are more likely to be seen in grouping first rather than solo. Already groups eat through 40m mobs in 2-3 rounds, that your typical epic just isn't worth the xp... this is a sign that typical group mobs are immensely weaker, as a proportional of group power, than they have ever been. Solo player power has always mostly been about technique not damage, you fight one round and then retreat. As demonstrated by the recent change to warcry, removing that hp shield now means you have to heal for most mobs, that's caused me to run far slower... even though my damage has been numerically increasing. XP caps effectively strangle all improvements anyway because they limit the xp reward no matter the player power. You might notice that with all this extra power the xp caps haven't moved in years, so the real effect of more power is only really run speed, which I mentioned is limited more than half by regen and movement.

I see I have waffled on, far to long... the point I am making is that rebirth shop for a solo player is actually pretty conservative... But it's effect on grouping in time will be quite noticeable I think. If a solo player has a power level of 100 and gains 10% not a lot happens. But if a group has a power level of 1000 and gains 10% it gains far more.
