Untitled[edit source]

I like how it say's Runescape using the British method for floors, e.g. Ground Floor then 1st floor etc, when the quest start states the Duke is on the 2nd floor, which is incorrect by British standards as that is indeed the 1st floor! I don't know how to edit this so please someone do that. 20:46, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Air strike[edit source]

Hey, I suspect it is possible to use any combat spell on the wortex. The air stirke is simply a level 1 spell that requires no othe runes than air, so it is the likely thing a new player would use and have accsess to, but I was on ancient spellbook yesterday, so I tried air spells on it and seeing no result and not knowing what I am supposed to do I went and swiched spellbooks, however after you cast air strike, Ariane simply goes on to say "cast combat spells" and you also use the same trick later on in old tower, where she doesn't say anything about air strike being needed. Might be convienient for more expierienced players, if somebody who hasn't done the quest confirmed this 15:02, November 29, 2012 (UTC)

           Yes any combat spell can in fact be used I can confirm this (at least for the standar spellbook i cant confirm the other spellbooks. 15:59, December 3, 2012 (UTC)

Possible reference to Alembert[edit source]

The idea of "music and magic" may be a reference to Alembert's fusion of scientific precepts and musical theory. I also got the impression that the quest author was positing a defence of elitism, with poor beleaguered Ariane being set upon by her mundane classmates due to her innate abilities! Oh well, I suppose I could do with having my own biases challenged now and then. Gamerunknown (talk) 22:14, November 29, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I thought the same thing! (About the music part.) Not about elitism, though, I thought it was more something about people's genetic predispositions (like musical/athletic talent). About your second point, however, I don’t know if I should post it here, or on your personal-talk page.
I’ll do it here, nonetheless. I don't so nothing wrong with conceding that some people are more in-luck than others... Ariane says this too (and Ellaron hyphenated this), she said that she wanted to be good (a good mage) on the basis of her input not on basis of her birth. Though, I used to share this point of view completely, after reading some of Rawls’s ‘A theory of Justice’ (from 1971), I have changed my mind. Rawls is even more radical. To him… even merit is an illusion that we try to ‘credit ourselves with’, un justly, because it’s not really our doing. He says it wonderful and poetically, on page 104: “It seems to be one of the fixed points of our considered judgments that no one deserves his place in the distribution of native endowments, any more than one deserves one's initial starting place in society. The assertion that a man deserves the superior character that enables him to make the effort to cultivate his abilities is equally problematic; for his character depends in large part upon fortunate family and social circumstances for which he can claim no credit.” Love the discussion (already! ;-P)

Wizards you ACTUALLY need to talk to[edit source]

The way the article is written right now, makes it seem as if you need to talk to every single wizard. However, I'm fairly sure you just need to talk to EllaronTraiborn and Sedridor. Well, perhaps Valina as well, not sure. But could someone confirm this? Then perhaps improve the article? I only talked to these 4 and 1-2 wizards on the bottom floor, not everyone on the list.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 10:12, October 22, 2014 (UTC).
