Start by locating and hailing Iilivina in Dranik's Scar under one of the bridges in the middle of the zone (loc -570, -260).

You say, 'Hail, Iilivina'

Iilivina says 'The magic here is quite unique. I am thrilled I've had the opportunity to study it.'

Hand Iilivina your Staff of Elemental Essence. She'll return it (put in your inventory), and continue:

Iilivina says 'My goodness, I did not realize you were the one [Bantil] sent to me! This is truly amazing! I was shocked when Magi'Kot's dream had been realized. I never thought it would be surpassed. My, so much focused elemental energy. This is truly amazing. You have accomplished quite a feat.'

You say, 'Bantil?'

Iilivina says 'Yes, Bantil told me you would be coming. Perhaps we can help each other. There are two tribes of elemental beings here. They have an unprecedented ability to channel elemental energy. I have yet to see one with my own eyes, but they may just contain [power] that will help you unleash the staff's true power.'

You say, 'What power?'

Iilivina says 'They use the elements in a way we have yet to understand. I suspect something in their essence that allows them to tap into the elements in a different manner than we understand. If my suspicions are true, these creatures should leave behind a small portion of their essence, when their spirits leave their bodies. If you find anything like that, bring it to me. They may be rather small, so bring me two from each type for good measure.'

Go to Riftseekers' Sanctum. Kill Pyrilen and Gelidran mobs until you have collected two Pyrilen Essences and two Gelidran Essences. Return to Iilivina and hand her the essences.

Iilivina grinds the small crystals into a fine powder, 'This is like nothing I have ever seen. It will take some time for me to analyze this, but thank you. I have more here than I will need. Take this pouch to Bantil, along with this note. If he doesn't know how this will help you, he may know someone who does.'

Receive Pouch of Powdered Riftseeker Essence and Note from Iilivina.

Find Bantil Io`Tuv in the fourth floor of the library in the Plane of Knowledge (loc +115, +995, +95, up two flights of stairs from entrance on north side). Hand him the note and pouch.

Bantil Io`Tuv unrolls the note and reads it to himself, 'Interesting. Well, I'm not sure I can do anything with this, but if you take this to Transon in Twilight sea, he may be able to understand it a little better.'

Recieve Small Pouch of Riftseeker Essence. Take this to Vornol Transon in the Twilight Sea. He is located on the top floor of the northwest tower of the keep (loc -1108, 480, 133).

Vornol Transon furrows his brow for a little bit as he mixes the powder in a small flask. 'This is most intriguing. There is nothing here that represents elemental magic as we understand it. These beings seem to use different means to channel their power. Let's see. . . Chaos represents fire, Order corresponds to Water, Air is channeled by Spirit, and. . . hmmm. . . Yes! There it is! Earth ties with Body. There you are, Chaos, Order, Spirit, and Body, those are the primal elements, and I suspect they are the key to unlocking the full potential of your new staff there. Which is quite nice if I do say so myself. If you find essences of the Primal elements you may want to speak with Bantil again. He should have some insight on how to complete your journey. Iilivina has been in Discord long enough, she may have some insight as to where these essences can be located.

Return to Iilivina in Dranik's Scar and hail her.

Iilivina says, 'Hello again. So, you are looking for the Primal Elemental essences? That has a nice ring to it. Transon has always had a penchant for the dramatic. I do not believe that you will find these beings in Discord however, if they exist at all. I do believe that your staff will resonate when you approach the creatures, so travel the world you know. Elementals tend to gravitate to areas that reflect their element best, I don't see why the [Primals] would behave any differently.'

You say, 'What primals?'

Iilivina says, 'Were I to venture a guess, I'd say look for Chaos near the ruins of a fallen empire, as order would tend to oppose chaos, I would look for the Order elemental near the ranks of a well regimented army, probably an ancient army, it is a creature of prestige. The Spirit elemental would find someplace where death and decay have a strong foothold. The Body Elemental may be the most elusive, as there is life everywhere. I would assume that its strong ties with this realm would pull it to a place where there are Muramites. When you find them, bring their remains to me and I'll see what else needs to be done.'

Take a few groups to the southern section of Ferubi. Take the path you would use to get to Packmaster Skoziat, but instead of heading to him, go west to the square feeding room. The Body Elemental will spawn once you get into a certain range. It hits for ~1000, flurries, and casts the spells Visions of Pain (a rather ugly DoT) and Searing Pain. Kill it, and loot the Element of Body off its corpse.

Take a raid to the pyramids near the wizard spires and druid ring in the Dreadlands, where the Chaos Elemental will spawn on top of one. It hits for ~2800 and procs the charm spell Chaos Epidemic. It also AEs Chaos Affliction. Kill it and loot the Element of Chaos. A chest spawns following its death.

Take a few groups to the northwestern-most room of Carprin's area in the Crypt of Decay. Here, the Spirit Elemental will spawn. It hits for about 1000 and procs the spell Spiritual Possession, a single-target charm. Kill it and loot the Element of Spirit.

Take a raid to the southwestern-most corner of the Halls of Honor (loc -2000, -1000 - head straight in towards Halls of Honor B portal, turn left and continue straight to the end - may not be on map), where the Order Elemental will spawn. It hits for ~3000, flurries, rampages, and casts the spell Cursed Keeper's Drain. Kill it and loot the Element of Order.

Return to Iilivina in Dranik's Scar and turn in the four elements.

Iilivina says, 'You work so fast! Amazing work you have done.' She looks at the 4 essences for a moment, 'Yes, these can probably be used to bind to your staff, but we'll need some sort of binding. Something that can be used to keep large amounts of energy bound together. I have no idea where you'd find such a thing, but if you do bring it to Bantil with your staff, and he'll be able to finish your journey.'

The 'something' she speaks of is a Globe of Discordant Energy from the Asylum of Anguish.

Bring the globe and Staff of Elemental Essence to Bantil Io`Tuv in the Plane of Knowledge to receive your Epic 2.0: Focus of Primal Elements. You also receive 10 AAs.

This checklist may be useful to track your progress on your Epic 2.0 quest.
