The Mage's Apprentice
Increase Magery to 50
Greetings. You seek to unlock the secrets of the arcane art of Magery. The New Haven Mage Council has an assignment for you. Undead have plagued the town of Old Haven. We need your assistance in cleansing the town of this evil influence. Old Haven is located east of here. I suggest using your offensive Magery spells such as Fireball and Lightning Bolt against the Undead that inhabit there.
Make sure you have plenty of reagents before embarking on your journey. Reagents are required to cast Magery spells. You can purchase extra reagents at the nearby Reagent shop, or you can find reagents growing in the nearby wooded areas. You can see which reagents are required for each spell by looking in your spellbook.
Come back to me once you feel that you are worthy of the rank of Apprentice Mage and I will reward you with an arcane prize.
Well done! On behalf of the New Haven Mage Council I wish to present you with this staff. Normally a mage must unequip weapons before spell casting. While wielding your new Ember Staff, however, you will be able to invoke your Magery spells.
Even if you do not currently possess skill in Mace Fighting, the Ember Staff will allow you to fight as if you do. However, your Magery skill will be temporarily reduced while doing so.
Finally, the Ember Staff occasionally smites a foe with a Fireball while wielding it in melee combat. I hope the Ember Staff serves you well.
Stay within Old Haven to take advantage of the accelerated skill gain buff which speeds up skill gain by about 0.2 - 0.5 per gain.
