Veil of Alaris pre-launch quests will run from Saturday, October 1 through Monday, November 14, 2011. Some of the quests will only be for a few days, others will run for the entire six weeks.

All of these quests begin in Steamfont, in the south east corner of the zone. The reward for the quests is 1 Work Voucher per completed quest. You can use the Work Vouchers to purchase items.

Each task currently has a six hour completion timer and a six hour lockout. Supposedly, the completion timer will be changed to unlimited in the next patch.



Note: Several tasks require you to "Collect" an item. If you already have the item in your bag, the task will not update. To get it to update, just hand the item to a random NPC. They will tell you they have no use for it, hand it back, and you will get your update.

Head to The Steam Factory or Fortress Mechanotus and kill clockwork mobs. They drop random Oil Cans, such as Warm Oil Can, Dirty Oil Can, etc. Any of these seem to work. Once you have four, head back to the build site in the Steamfont Mountains. Locate the barrels of oil, and simply click on them four times for the updates. Those oil cans that don't stack (e.g. Warm and Dirty) do not disappear when you click the oil barrel, but a stackable Oil Can will vanish upon each click if it's in your inventory.

Group mission Edit

The group mission Engine Trouble (EQ Resource, Allakhazam) should be available from November 2 to November 14, 2011. The mission is very long, taking most groups three to four hours to complete. The reward for a level 90 average group is five Work Voucher per toon and one An Ancient Text in the chest. The chest reward for a average lower level group is unknown. The mission has a six hour lockout timer beginning from when the mission starts.

An Ancient Text Edit

The pre-launch quests Baga's Stand (no longer in game) and Engine Trouble (Group Mission) have An Ancient Text as the reward. Engine Trouble only gives out one in the chest upon completion.

If you right click An Ancient Text, it gives you An Ancient Text (a different item, even though it has the same name). Reading An Ancient Text supposedly gives you a head start in learning the progression language for Veil of Alaris.

The Ancient Text from the Veil of Alaris launch event can now be read. Be sure to read it before the expansion launches!
