Dorset Oakes has asked for your help in locating the book "On the Hardiness of Animals in the Wilderness", and has told you to speak with him when you are ready. He mentioned that the three pages of his father's catalogue would make finding the book much easier.
    DescriptionTIP: Best way is to go straight to the far right corner of books, count to the 9th shelf, it is in the corner

    TIP: The seven bokshelves against the wall opposite the entrance form section A numbered 1-7, from left to right. Sections B and C are along the right wall of the library, and sections D and E are against the left. the twelve bookshelves of section B are organized in a cresent shape with B1 being the nearest to A7, then moving in that way around the cresecent until it ends with B12.

    TIP: Summon pet once you get past the doors, kill the first goblin, stun the other.. search 2 shelves, stun again, 2 more, stun.. found it on B9... then run back and talk to him, out we go.

    Book <2007-04-01 19:02:51>
    Anarkhan <Guest>Where is the damn book ?I can't find it.Got the three page but they do not speak about :"On the Hardiness of Animals in the Wilderness".


    <2007-04-05 06:42:45>
    <Guest>dude.....no way.....goblins will spawn every second after both killed, can't get enough times to check shelfs, the clue only points out dozens of possiblities, almost impossoble to pass this quest


    <2007-04-07 00:27:06>
    Krusheer <Guest>Kill 1 goblin and keep 1 stunned... The other wave of goblins only comes when the last goblin of the duo is dead... so stun/ look at 2 bookshelf/ restun.. until you find the book (got mine in the B-8 section)


    <2007-04-08 22:50:49>
    vrykyl <Guest>That worked great, but it was in B-9 for me


    Book <2007-04-12 03:30:07>
    Arctic <Guest>Stun works awesome, B-9 for me


    very good advice <2007-04-14 18:46:57>
    Faile <Guest>just stun one with blinding flash and set your pet on the other and search B9 (that's the 9th bookcase in the far right shelf formation counting from the farthest edge)


    <2007-04-15 23:25:06>
    deboscp <Guest>My bear wont even follow me inside the library, too many bugs to finish this quest


    MAP <2007-04-20 13:01:03>
    Meickel <Guest>try summon your bear out of the first room, summon the bear in the room of briefcase, but this is lost of time, run to the right briefcade and and find the book. i find him in the B9, follow the map down. B - breifcase * - the right brifcase good luck. -goblins------------------------- B B B B | | B B B B B B B B | B B| B B| B B| B B| B B B B B B B * | | B B B B B B B B | B B| B B| B B| B B | B B B B B B B B | | | B B B B B B B B | ------------- ------------- DOOR

    emerelle <Guest>Summon pet once you get past the doors, kill the first goblin, stun the other.. search 2 shelves, stun again, 2 more, stun.. found it on B9... then run back and talk to him, out we go. VERY easy!


    <2007-04-28 16:56:22>
    Isohad <Guest>Went straight to B9, got it before goblins spawned. Back to door, exit talk to NPC. Too easy when u know where to look.


    <2007-05-08 04:03:44>
    Sean <Guest>Best way is to go straight to the far right corner of books, count to the 9th shelf, it is in the corner...get in and out, quick and easy.


    Why B-9? <2007-05-11 03:48:00>
    Aaron <Guest>By the way, for anyone who does not know how the pages provide the clue to look to bookcase B-9 for the book, here is how to find the clue: In the second and third pages of text collected before starting the instance, a number of books are mentioned and the corresponding shelf numbers on which they can be located. One book is conspicuously missing, which happens to be the very book you are looking for. At the end of the text, the author wonders if there were any shelves he forgot about. Therein lies the solution. He did forget a shelf: the one with "On the Hardiness of Animals in the Wilderness" and along with it the shelf number it is on. Therefore it is simply a matter of elimination. If you write down all the shelf numbers listed in the text that have books assigned and compare it to the complete list of shelves mentioned during the description of the layout of the library, only one is missing: B-9.


    Staying too long = bad <2007-05-16 04:56:27>
    Sam <Guest>If you stay long enough to kill several waves of Goblins, a couple of purple Goblin Champions spawn that will pretty much kill you. You have to have a plan of where you're looking.


    library <2007-05-29 02:43:01>
    bleys <Guest>what bloody library ? if yer all talking about the one in bree then im not following could stay there forever with out any goblins apearing then again cant do anything with the bookshelfs either


    <2007-05-29 10:09:24>
    Justin <Guest>Bleys, it's the Lore-Master solo quest so i geuss u ain't 1?


    Hard way to do it. <2007-06-05 05:30:47>
    Matrix <Guest>Yeah stunning the second goblin seems very nice way to do this quest.. just that i didnt know there will come lots of more goblins before I started the quest. After 3-4 pairs of goblins there will come lvl 16, 29 and 30 goblins, which makes searching pretty impossible. I hope I can reset the quest :)


    B-9 <2007-06-24 04:02:59>
    Gandelle <Guest>It wasn't clear to me which one b9 is. The easiest way is to summon pet, kill first goblin, stun the other, dismiss pet so that he doesnt accidentally kill the goblin, then go to the far right corner where the set of bookshelves is in a horse-shoe shape. Looking towards the bookcases against the wall, its in the row on the right, the book case closest to the wall. Hope that clears things up


    Second Page <2007-06-30 05:10:30>
    Nate <Guest>I get the third page from Dorset Oaks. I usually find the first page on the goblin that I kill before I stun the other. I am missing where to find the second page. Anybody seen it? (I know I don't need it, I was just curious)


    Second Page <2007-07-22 06:12:21>
    Aland <Guest>I found the second page while killing Goblins in the east of the swamp near the hills and the lone-lands. If you have finished the quest of course you don't need the 2nd page but it is helpful to unravel the clues found on 1st & 3rd pages.


    Second Page <2007-07-22 06:12:21>
    Aland <Guest>After a careful study of the notes above I ran in an put my pet in the back near the A shelves then ran quickly to bookself B9 and extracted the book and then RAN AWAY without any combat. My pet suffered only a few bruises before we escaped.


    <2007-07-25 06:09:45>
    Dish <Guest>I didn't even get any goblins. Just ran in, nabbed the book, ran out.


    <2007-08-11 06:16:26>
    ~Mr-Freeze~looking on the map there is no shelf letters if only i used stund the 1st time


    <2007-08-11 06:16:26>
    <Guest>if you're at the 20+ goblins just restart the quest, cancel it and go back, no need to die trying lol. But you have to cancel the quest cuz it didn't reset when i died...


    <2007-08-29 08:10:54>
    Umrath <Guest>great info, thnx guys and galls :-)


    Found IT <2007-12-09 03:39:19>
    Adolin <Guest>TY for all the tips. The stun method worked best after putting up my bear...Stun, 2 shelfs, stun 2 shelfs...and so on. Where MY book was...Ok, there are two Horseshoe book case areas on each side of the room. It is on the right side, the further one from the door. Once there, it was the last one on the right, before the wall. Good luck, and it is practically impossible to do without the stun methode, thanks all....good luck to the rest of you....


    ty <2007-12-09 03:39:19>
    a guy <Guest>guys thanks for the info, i found it easy with this


    <2008-02-28 03:59:43>
    some guy..... <Guest>This shit is hella stupid.. you cant even stun until lvl 18. makes no sence.


    <2008-03-12 05:05:53>
    phenoum <Guest>lol cant stun until lvl 18? what pipe you smoking? or have you not learned the "blinding flash" skill from your trainer yet? (lvl 10ish?)


    <2008-03-23 01:49:17>
    RipperJack <Guest>its to the right the one with logs in front of it for me... if you cant understand the B9 or whatever


    <2008-04-06 14:14:37>
    . <Guest>Ridiculous quest. Way too difficult for a level 15. Turbine should be ashamed of imbalancing the game like this.


    easy <2008-04-26 23:01:14>
    another lm <Guest>I found the quest to be a bit easy actually. By the time you get this quest you've had mez for 5 levels. Plenty of time to get good at using it. Mobs coming at you 2 at a time are like an exp griners dream come true. I killed a few extra rounds just for fun. Just mez one, kill the other, then kill the first one. Rinse and repeat.


    One More Tip <2008-04-30 03:39:01>
    Naralanna <Guest>Got this on 3rd try after just hitting level 16, thanks to the other tips. As you walk into the library, you should approach the second U-shaped bank of bookshelves on your right. You will see that the last shelf in the right side of the U, where it meets the base of the U, has a small wooden step or bench in front of it. That's the shelf that contains the book! On my 3rd try there was a goblin scout patrolling the room as I entered, so I put my bear on him, grabbed the book, and then helped my bear finish him off. We ran back to the questgiver and completed it without another goblin spawning. Good luck!


    Stuff Sitting by the bottom of the shelf. <2008-05-02 21:15:13>
    McChan Rawson <Guest>The shelf you need seems to have a broken pillar or box at the bottom of it. Starting from the right section and the last one facing into the lib. you count 9 back down the right wall.


    This Quest is really really easy. <2008-05-05 04:39:09>
    Findell <Guest>Now finding the right bookshelf isn't easy but playing with the goblins is you simply kill 1 of the first pair and chain cast blinding flash on the other one you get about 2 or 3 bookcase opens between the Blinding Flash casts.


    <2008-05-06 02:49:08>
    <Guest>I wish I had read this first, it was the first time I'd died with this character. So much for working towards my Undying title. Never did find page 2 either.


    Benton's Catalogue Page One <2008-07-05 03:17:32>
    Gil <Guest>The seven bokshelves against the wall opposite the entrance form section A numbered 1-7, from left to right. Sections B and C are along the right wall of the library, and sections D and E are against the left. the twelve bookshelves of section B are organized in a cresent shape with B1 being the nearest to A7, then moving in that way around the cresecent until it ends with B12.


    <2008-08-03 02:18:04>
    Camel <Guest>------The shelf you need seems to have a broken pillar or box at the bottom of it. Starting from the right section and the last one facing into the lib. you count 9 back down the right wall.------ This was all I needed to find it!


    Location <2008-10-06 08:09:16>
    Rudiger <Guest>I went in and fought Goblins, searching shelves in between waves, until the quest failed due to time out. I read this here and, although all the info you need is here, it seemed a bit confusing. It is as simple as they say. Enter room, bookcases on right wall to rear, the bookcase you want has a rectangle timber in front of it. Ran in, grabbed it and got out before Goblins hit me.


    <2008-10-22 05:30:23>
    Oakthaw <Guest>Just go straight in and go to the top right corner, its the case next to the wall on the side nearest to you in that section of bookcases


    <2009-03-18 03:10:10>
    Bluedrake <Guest>B9 for me 2 thanks alot a real big help.


    THANK YOU <2009-04-16 04:44:02>
    Applecake <Guest>Thanks Sean.. your tip: "Best way is to go straight to the far right corner of books, count to the 9th shelf, it is in the corner..." was PERFECT. Had the book before the gobs even came out.


    screenshot <2009-05-26 03:26:37>
    Vaupell alll those explanations are crazy, why not just attach a screenshot much better.. nothing more need to be said. enjoy.


    <2009-10-14 05:17:45>
    Agirobo <Guest>What your suppose to do is look at all the books and what shelves they are on, then whichever shelf doesnt have a book specified for it, that is the shelf (B9)
