Slashed book detail.png

The Slashed book is a quest item that is used in Elemental Workshop I. It is a modified form of the battered book, which becomes a slashed book when a knife is used on it in order to retrieve the battered key from its spine. Players must have either this or the battered book in their inventory when they make an Elemental shield or Mind shield.

This book is available from the same house south-west of the bank in Seers' Village. It is not in the bookcase of a player-owned house, but players can take a battered book from the bookcase (titled 'Book of the Elemental Shield'), and use a knife on it to turn it into a slashed book. If players wish to get a battered key, all you do is click on the bookcase and click continue in your chat box to find the battered key.

Transcript[edit | edit source]

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Battered book.

Within the pages of this book you will find the secret to working the very elements themselves. Early in the fifth age, a new ore was discovered. This ore has a unique property of absorbing, transforming or focusing elemental energy. A workshop was erected close by to work this new material. The workshop was set up for artisans and inventors to be able to come and create devices made from the unique ore, found only in the village of the Seer's.

After some time of successful industry the true power of this ore became apparent as greater and more powerful weapons were created. Realising the threat this posed, the magi of the time closed down the workshop and bound it under lock and key, also trying to destroy all knowledge of manufacturing processes. Yet this book remains and you may still find a way to enter the workshop within this leather bound volume.
