Magician Epic 1.5 Pre-Quest

The Magician Epic 1.5: Staff of Elemental Essence quest is for magicians who have completed the Magician Epic 1.0: Orb of Mastery quest. For those that have not completed the 1.0 quest there is this pre-quest which will flag you appropriately and allow you to start the 1.5 quest.

Find Bantil Io`Tuv on the fourth floor of the library in the Plane of Knowledge (loc +115, +995, +96).

You say, 'Hail, Bantil Io`Tuv'

Bantil Io`Tuv says 'Greetings. I am looking for someone who has followed in the footsteps of Magi'Kot, but you do not seem to have progressed that far. There is [another way] for you to prove your control of the elements to me.'

You say, 'Another way?'

Bantil Io`Tuv says 'Well, there are 4 Elementals that have gone rogue. They escaped from their elemental planes, and I fear they may be planning some mischief. They have assumed new names, so look for a Wildfire Elemental, an Earthquake Elemental, a Tsunami Elemental, and a Monsoon Elemental. Hand them this vial when you find them, it will allow you to fight them, and also capture them once they are beaten. Return them to me so they can be handled correctly.'

Bantil hands you a Vial of Elemental Binding.

The four elementals you must kill are all level 65 and are located in the

  1. Plane of Storms (Swirling Monsoon Elemental: found at +2060, +240; quads for 1000; procs Bellowing Winds)
  2. The Grey (Trembling Earthquake Elemental: found at +1545, -960; rampages; flurries; enrages; procs Sand Quake; hits for 950)
  3. Shadeweaver's Thicket (Raging Wildfire Elemental: found at +3625, +110; procs FlameSongOfRo; hits for 780)
  4. Siren's Grotto (Ravaging Tsunami Elemental: found at +255, -25; quads; rampages; hits for 750).

You may need a group for them, depending on your gear and level. As it says, hand the vial to the non-aggro form to get the aggro one, which you must kill and loot the essence. Return all four essences to Bantil in order to complete the pre-quest.
