The Collector Quest is started by talking to Elwood McCarrin the Well-known Collector, who can be found on a raised deck just north of the town square in New Haven. Elwood is a slightly confused man who apparently spends most of his time hanging at the bar, sending anyone who talks to him out to fetch strange items that he consider to be rare.

The first thing Elwood wants you to find is six Rainbow Pearls, which luckily can be found in Haven Lake a few paces to the south. To get the pearls from the lake you will need a fishing pole, which, if you don’t have one, can be bought from one of the many fishermen on the dock. With a fishing pole in your hand you just go to the lake and start fishing, eventually you will have caught six shellfish that contained rainbow pearls.


Return to Elwood with the pearls and he will send you out for the next item, a portrait painted by the respected painter Alberta Giacco. Alberta can be found at the Colored Canvas in Vesper and will gladly paint your portrait if you ask her. All you will have to do is to sit still on a stool in front of her for a few minutes. Once she is done she will send you back to Elwood with word that the portrait will follow when it is done.

The third thing Elwood sends you to get is a sheet of music autographed by the renowned minstrel Gabriel Piete, who when he isn’t on tour can be found in theConservatory of Music in Britain. Gabriel isn’t too happy about all those fans who keep pestering him about autographs, but he agrees to give you one just to get rid of you. There is however a small problem, he doesn’t have any of his sheet music around, but lets you know that you might find some in one of the theaters he visited on his last tour. Those theaters are The King’s Men Theater in Britain, The Performing Arts Center in Jhelom and Nujel’m Theater in Nujel’m.

Only one of the theaters he mentions will have the required sheet music, which can be bought from the theatres local impresario for 10 gold pieces With the sheet music in hand you can return to Gabriel and get him to sign it.

The final item Elwood sends you to get is a set of four toy figurines made by the famed toymaker Tomas O’Neerlan, who can be found in the Trinsic Tinkers Guild. Tomas will be happy to make the figurines,but only if you can provide him with the images to make them from. He will give you a list of the creatures he needs and a magical set of paints to capture their images with, then he will send you on your way.

The four creatures he will send you to get images of can be any combination of the following:


  • Betrayer
  • Bog Thing
  • Bogling
  • Gazer
  • Giant Beetle
  • Giant Black Widow
  • Juggernaut
  • Juka Mage
  • Juka Warrior
  • Lich
  • Meer Mage
  • Meer Warrior
  • Mongbat
  • Mummy
  • Pixie
  • Plague Beast
  • Sand Vortex
  • Scorpion
  • Stone Gargoyle
  • Swamp Dragon
  • Wisp

The images will automatically be created when you use the magical paints
and target the proper creature.

Once you have all four images you can return to Tomas in Trinsic and
get him to start making the figurines. He will then return the images
to you and send you back to Elwood to tell him that the figurines will
be done soon. Upon hearing this Elwood will reward you with a small bag
of things he doesn’t need in his collection, a random magic item, a Section
of an Obsidian Statue and a small pile of gold.
