Epic Weapons

Simultaneous with the discovery of Kunark, several adventurers began to speak of fabled weapons of unfathomable power.  They told tales of marathon quests that yeilded these weapons to members of each class from Bards to Warriors.  These quests would each span the world and often into the planes of the gods.  Some tasks could be completed alone, but many would require a small army of commrades to complete.  Each class' weapon is easy to spot, not just for their unique design, but because of the particle effects eminating from the weapon.  Through the hard work of many pioneers, each class' epic weapon was discovered, some easier than others.  

 

The Celestial Fists 

The Celestial Fists are unique in the fact that they can be equipped as either a weapon or as gloves.  The wraps grant their wearer with boosts to strength, dexterity, stamina, agility, defense, and health.  They are infused with Celestial Tranquility, which grants a monk with 40% haste and increased attack and defense.  Their physical appearance is nothing special, but they magically emit tranquil bubbles, making the most skilled monks of Norrath easy to recognize.   
  

The Epic Quest 

Erudin
The monk epic begins with an Erudite man named Tomekeeper Danl in the city's great library.  He is in search of a high profile book that is likely to be found on what he calls powerful and influential beings.  The book he speaks of is called "Immortals" and is carried by various wurms and drakes in Skyfire Mountains.  Danl refers the book's finder to the man who ran the library before him, Lheao, who now resides on the paradise island in the Timorous Deep.  Advising Lheao of the discovery of the Immortals shocks him, causing him to reference a second book that further explains these individuals.  Lheao will only entrust the task of protecting these tomes to a member of the Whistling Fists Order.  To become a member, one must first complete a few other quests.  The first of which is obtaining the Red Sash of Order, which is rewarded through a series of tests provided by the Ashen Order of Freeport.  One will also need to obtain the Robe of the Lost Circle through either honorable or nefarious ways from Brother Zephyl in the Rathe Mountains.  Lastly, after obtaining the robe, Brother Balatin, a skeletal monk in the Dreadlands wishes to to rebuild the Lost Circle.  He requests the robe and his master's stolen flute in return for what he refers to as the true drape.  The flute has been broken into two pieces, one of which can be found carried by an Iksar betrayer in Chardok, and the other is obtainable from a Drolvarg pawduster in Karnor's Castle.  The three items together given to Brother Balatin will earn the Robe of the Whistling Fists, which is infused with a bard song that amplifies haste, defense, and strength.  Giving this beautiful robe to Lheao is enough to earn his trust.  The book he offers is known as The Celestial Fists, but it is mostly illegible.

Eejag's Challenge
The man who can translate it has long since gone mad and currently roams with the undead creatures in Trakanon's Teeth.  His name is Kaiaren and upon hearing of the ancient book, he will attack wildly.  Quickly feigning death will cause him to reveal that the he is not Kaiaren's true form.  The true Kaiaren can be found in a nearby hut on the edge of the lake.  He is actually not insane, and is surprised at the discovery of a copy of the fabled book.  Kaiaren says he's never heard of Lheao, but agrees with what Lheao said, which is that the unknown author of the book never should have written it, for it is dangerous.  Unlike Lheao though, Kaiaren knows the author's name is Aradiel, and recommends that if one should ever find him again, that they switfly kick him in the shins.  He knows of the Fists and reveals that he would reward one greatly for the death of their leader.  Kaiaren knows though that the members are quite reclusive, so one would have to draw them out of hiding in order to challenge them.  He suggests beginning with the weakest member of the Celestial Fists, the Disciple of Fire, Eejag, who can be found in the massive lava pit in the northern reaches of Lavastorm Mountains.  Eejag is an Iksar impervious to fire and will not leave the pool of lava, so he must be fought within the searing lava itself.  A charred scale from his corpse will be enough to prove his defeat to the next member of the clan.   
 
That would be Gwan, a Human man who hides behind the illusion of a shadowman in the Plane of Sky.  He has the ability to force anyone off his island into the abyss, so positioning in this fight is crucial.  Once defeated, he leaves behind the breath of Gwan, which should be delivered to the next ranking Celestial Fist.   
 
Lake of Ill Omen
The third member is a ridiculously rare Ogre monk that strangely resides with the Mountain Death goblins in the Mines of Nurga.  Trunt is immune to most magic, so warrior and rogue friends will certainly be helpful in this challenge.  Trunt's head should then be taken to the fourth member, a Dark Elf woman known simply as Deep.  She lives among the aqua goblins beneath Lake Rathetear.  She acknowledges the defeat of her master's three students and reveals that she and her master will now grant an audience in The Overthere before deciding how to kill the one responsbile for this.  An Astral Projection can be found in the canyon in The Overthere, and issues a challenge to meet him in the Lake of Ill Omen for a showdown.  He rewards your efforts with one of Kaiaren's eyes, citing it as a token of the last fool who challenged him.  Upon arriving in the Lake of Ill Omen, the Astral Projection may be found on a platform in the middle of the lake.  Handing him Kaiaren's eye causes him to reveal his true name, Vorash, and he will attack with Deep at his side.  This fight will require significant help from allies in order to manage the two of them at once.  Upon their defeat, Vorash will unleash the power of Rallos Zek in the form of Xenevorash, a demon in the form of an undead Sarnak with a wicked direct damage spell.  Those skillful enough to defeat him should take a fang from his skull and the Book of Celestial Fists back to Kaiaren in Trakanon's Teeth.  He will admit that he did not have much faith in anyone ever defeating Vorash, but as a reward, he sews the demon fangs into magical fist wraps that he calls Celestial Fists.
