Level 90 Mythical Conversion

Your Mythical Weapon has unique effects which will not work on level 81-90 spells, combat arts, or pets. By completing two quests, you may convert your Fabled or Mythical Epic Weapon into an Enervated Weapon and add persistent Mythical Effect spells to your knowledge book. This allows you to acquire other weapons without losing class-defining Mythical effects.

The quest requires that your class and your Epic weapon match. You will only receive the mythical spell gem of your current class.

You can start this series as long as you have the fabled version of your epic. But if you have completed "Epic Repercussions" then you will not be rewarded the mythical weapon if you go back and complete your class specific Kunark mythical quest.

The quests which make your Epic Weapon effect into a spell is the same for all classes.

  1. Fiery Jewel of the Underfoot
  2. Epic Repercussions


The guardian epic weapon itself is mentioned in the Tome of Destiny. Here are the passages mentioning the sword:

"Striding towards the Avatar, Urduuk swore a blood oath to carry out his bidding, extinguishing opposition and building a city worthy of Rallos. Drawing Soulfire, the being touched the flaming blade to Urduuk's shoulder and appointed him as General. He then gave to Urduuk the unholy blade Vel'Arek, forged in Drunder and blessed by Vallon Zek. The sword would drink the blood of the weak to give strength to its wielder.

Urduuk turned back to the Chief and drove the sword through his heart, then watched as Vel'Arek seemed to absorb the blood. The Avatar of War voiced his approval and announced that the Avatar of Flame was taking the same message to the Orcs, who would work with the Ogres to remove men and elves from Norrath. General Urduuk agreed to abide by that command but stated that he would first eliminate Gukta and the Frogloks."

"When Ignara seemed confused by the General's reference to his father, Urduuk turned on her, drawing the sword Vel'Arek, which he said had been bestowed on him to symbolize his birthright. Not wanting her head to adorn a post, which was the usual fate of anyone who differed with the General, Ignara hastily agreed that he was the son of Zek, holding her breath as he sheathed his sword.[1]"
