Quest Release Date: 02 June 2004
Hundreds of years ago, a mineral was found that had the ability to change the property of Magic.
The magicians, fearing the effect this may have on their profession, sealed this Workshop forever; or so they had hoped. See if you can rediscover the lost knowledge of elemental ore.
Begin by searching the bookcase just southwest of the Seers' Village bank.

First off, head to the Seer's Village and search the bookcase in the house just southwest of the bank to find a Battered Book. Read it to find out that an ore with magic properties was found and a workshop was built to create new inventions, but it was closed down because the new inventions were becoming too powerful. Also note the last statement: "...you may still find a way to enter the workshop within this leather bound volume." You should keep this book with you until you finish the quest.
Use a Knife with the book to find a Battered Key and head north to the smithing building. Use the key with the odd looking wall and head down the stairs to the workshop. From the stairs, head north to a small room with a water wheel; turn the right valve first, and then turn the left one. Pull the lever in front of the wheel to get it started, and head back to the stairs.
Now go to the east room to find a large Bellows that appears to have a hole in it. You'll need some soft Leather as well as a needle and thread to fix it (all 3 items can be found by searching the boxes and crates in the various rooms), and when you have those items just click "Fix Bellows." Now pull the lever in front and search the boxes and crates in the various rooms for a Stone Bowl.
Head to the west-most room and try to mine from the rocks. You'll be attacked by a level 35 Earth Elemental, so kill it and take the Elemental Ore. Now go to the south room and use the bowl with the Lava Trough to fill it with lava, and then use it with the furnace to the east. Smelt the ore, as well as 4 Coal in the furnace to get a bar of Elemental Metal. Smith this on one of the Workbenches to make an Elemental Shield (gives 8 Smithing xp). Congratulations, quest complete!
