Description

Zurtermor has dropped his precious pickaxe into a crevasse...

There is a hidden target at (L-7) along the edge of one of the round steam vents, when you put your cursor on it... it shows blank in your target box, not the usual ??? you usually see. Click it for a cutscene. After you get the first cutscene, trade a pickaxe to it for another one. Zurtermor will say he needs something bigger.

Next, rezone to the south in Halvung. Then rezone back to trade a Mythril Pick for the final cutscene and map of Mount Zhayolm.

Took me all of 10 minutes to complete tonight, and that counts a trip to the Whitegate AH ^^ The description here is good but it may not be the most clear, so here are my observations on the quest. Note: you do NOT need to talk to any NPCs in Whitegate to start this quest ^^

1) This quest is INSANELY easy to accomplish if you have access to the Halvung (Lebros Cave) runic portal. Part with 200 IS in Whitegate, pop into the Chamber of Passage and off you go to K-6 on the Mount Zhaylom Map.

2) From there, sneak + invis (clusters, leeches, and Phasma will all ruin your day) an follow the path ahead to K-7 when you'll hug the left wall. This leads you into a narrow path and eventually a tunnel with will empty out at L-6.

3) The steam vent that has the targetable blank spot is to the right if you're coming from the Runic Portal. You'll have to drop invisible to trigger the cutscene, but you may want to keep sneak on as there's a Volcanic Leech that spawns around the vent.

4) Click the blank target first to trigger the cutscene. At the end, trade your pickaxe to the target for second CS when the troll will complain about the size of your pick. Don't take it personally, head south, and zone into Halvung (if you can target the Goblin Footprint, you're on the right track!)

5) Zone back into Mount Zhaylom and trade the Mythril Pick to the target to trigger the final cutscene. You'll be prompted to either give the sad troll your Pick or Keep it. I choose to be nice and give the troll the pick which set off some happy music and completed the quest. I'm not sure what happens if you select the second choice (it's mine!), but I don't think it'll change much except the music for the final piece of the CS.

6) You do not lose the pickaxe that you trade to the target, but you DO lose the Mythril Pick.

...and that's pretty much it!

When I first clicked it, I got a "There is nothing out of the ordinary here." as well.
But after that I traded the pickaxe, and then rezoned, and traded the axe, got the map.

Easy as ****. (I used escape so, I would zone right infront of the point you need to trade to.)
Getting lost kinda sucks

How do I get to L-7 without my map? Isn't this the quest for the map? I think i'll wander a bit. ^^
need fame or rank or something?

Just tried this. Despite the fact that I forgot quest specifics and brought a rusty pick instead of a pickaxe, I clicked the target and got "There is nothing out of the ordinary here."

Does this need ToAU fame, or do you need to have pickaxe in inventory to be able to trigger it?

i tried just clicking the blank spot, nothing happened, and i'd never been to that particular position before. However, it turns out I was able to at least force the quest by just trading the pickax to the point anyways. Much like the back alley quests in all the cities.
