Step 23

The Symbol of Preservation, governed by Lady Lorminstra, is obtained upon completion of the 23rd step of the Order of Voln. This symbol acts to strengthen the bonds of spirit to body in a target (or oneself), similar to the Cleric Base spell Preservation (305), or the contents of a white flask. Preservation, regardless of the source, is also commonly referred to as 'life keep'.

Using the Symbol of Preservation

Syntax

  • The target is optional - use of the symbol without a target will default to oneself.
  • This symbol can even be used when dead, to preserve the souls of the Volner and any group members.
  • This symbol preserves the corpse for 30 seconds per member's rank with a thirteen-minute maximum at mastery.

Monk's Teaching and Instruction Highlights

  • Explains the importance of having studied all previous lessons.

Wehnimer's Landing Task

To gain Lorminstra's blessing, one must help one that has not found the favor of the Gods to do so.

  • Take the above-mentioned character to the altar in Lorminstra's Temple: (Lich ID 7523)
    • From TSC: E, E, E, S, S, E, Go temple, Go altar
  • At the altar, type say Lorminstra, give (other character) my deed.
  • One deed will be removed from you and transferred to the other player, and your task will be completed.
  • Return to monk to receive symbol

Ta'Vaalor Task

Likewise, we must help out the less-blessed.

  • First, find a player with no deeds. Usually, this is easiest to accomplish by seeking out low-level hunting grounds.
  • Take this character to the Temple:
  • From Victory Court: E, E, E, N, E, E, E, N, N, Go structure, W to the altar (Lich ID: 10370)
  • At the altar, type say Lorminstra, give (other character) my deed.
  • One deed will be removed from you and transferred to the other player, and your task will be completed.
