Investigate the Alchemist Shop is part of the Ghostbusting in the Undercity quest chain Mage-only quest chain.


Obtain a Cantation of Manifestation and a Chest of Containment Coffers from behind Anastasia Hartwell. Bring 3 Filled Containment Coffers, the Chest of Containment Coffers and the Cantation of Manifestation to Anastasia in the Undercity.


Algernon's alchemist shop in the Apothecarium is the locus of a strange disturbance. Invisible creatures, made solely of magic, wander the shop—there must be a reason, and we must find it!

Investigate the disturbance and capture those creatures. Take a chest of coffers and a scroll from behind me. Use the scroll at the shop to make the creatures visible, subdue them with your spells, then throw down a coffer to capture them. Return with the filled coffers, the empty coffers and the cantation.


Containing a rift spawn

Have you investigated the disturbance, <name>? Have you captured the creatures?


Very good, <name>. The creatures within these containment coffers will be studied by our finest minds, and the reason behind their presence in the Undercity will be determined.

If their appearance is caused by a rift in the natural flow of magic, then we must determine if the rift was random. If it was not random, but instead an attack by some magical force, then we must prepare for future, more serious disturbances.
