Esta quest es en forma de task y se mostrará en tu quest log dentro de ‘Tibia Tales’ bajo el nombre de ´Research and Development’.
Lo primero que debes hacer es buscar al NPC Spectulus, en el último piso de la Academia de Magias de Edron (en la torre marcada con el cursor)
Al encontrarlo dile lo siguiente:
Jugador: hi Jugador: research Spectulus: I fine-tuned another set of devices. You are the lucky candidate to first lay eyes on some revolutionary new concepts. ... Spectulus: Are you ready to help science once again? Jugador: yes Spectulus: Of course you are. And here we go. I have to ask some questions first. One: You ain't afraid of no ghost, right? Jugador: yes Spectulus: Good. Two: You know that ghosts exist and/or have found and/or defeated one or more of them? Jugador: yes Spectulus: Alright. Let's see - yes. ... Spectulus: Three: You can explain at least three of the following terms, infestations, collective apparitions, ectoplasmic segregations, ecto-magical field phenomena, neuro-speculative sub-conscious awareness of spirits, ghosts and/or ghasts? Jugador: yes Spectulus: Excellent! You do? Most interesting! We should definitely controvert the actual soul reincarnation of super-luminescent spores I recently witnessed under laboratory conditions. ... Spectulus: I'm sure you'll be pleased to hear that magical sources influence the psy- oh, oh sorry, got carried away a bit there. Phew! Let's just say I can't wait! ... Spectulus: Ready to go on with your task? Jugador: yes Spectulus: I recently teamed up with a fellow scientist and friend Sinclair, who is also more of an explorer than me, to combine our discoveries in the field of complex phenomena not that easily to describe just by today's state of magic. ... Spectulus: Of course I am talking about ghosts. I know, I know. Hard to believe in those times of highly advanced magic we live in. Yet there are some things, we fail to explain. ... Spectulus: And that is exactly where we come in! Oh, and you of course. We will not only explain them - we will 'remove' them. Just tell me whenever you are ready to help us with our research. Jugador: research Spectulus: Alright. Let's go. At first we need to find out more about ghosts in general. ... Spectulus: I still need more information and values to properly calibrate the magical orientation of orange and turquoise sparkle attractors which we will need to actually contain ghost-emissions. ... Spectulus: So are you in? Jugador: yes Spectulus: Good. Take this wand - we call it a spirit meter - and go to the graveyard I have marked on your map and take a few measurements on the graves.
Jugador: hi Jugador: research Spectulus: You are back, how did the measurements go? Did you recognise anything of interest? Jugador: yes Spectulus: Let me see the spirit meter. Hmmm... those are grave news you bring - uhm, you know what I mean. But this is awesome! Now I know for sure that the calibration is only some short bursts of magically enhanced energy away.

Jugador: hi Jugador: research Spectulus: Alright, now that we have enough results, the analysing can start. While I do this, I will need you to test the magically enhanced cage Sinclair developed to contain spirits effectively. ... Spectulus: Take the spirit cage from him and use it on the essence of a common ghost. Its essence will then be sucked into the cage and we can study him right here in the safety of the academy walls.
Baja la escalera y habla con el NPC Sinclair, de la siguiente forma:
Jugador: hi Jugador: mission Sinclair: So you have passed Spectulus' acceptance test. Well, I'm sure you will live up to that. ... Sinclair: We are trying to get this business up and running and need any help we can get. Did he tell you about the spirit cage? Jugador: yes Sinclair: Excellent. Now we need to concentrate on testing that thing. The spirit cage has been calibrated based on some tests we made - as well as your recent findings over at the graveyard. ... Sinclair: Using the device on the remains of a ghost right after its defeat should capture it inside this trap. We could then transfer it into our spirit chamber which is in fact a magical barrier. ... Sinclair: At first, however, we need you to find a specimen and bring it here for us to test the capacity of the device. Are you ready for this? Jugador: yes Sinclair: Good, now all you need to do is find a ghost, defeat it and catch its very essence with the cage. Once you have it, return to me and Spectulus and I will move it into our chamber device. Good luck, return to me as soon as you are prepared.
Te dará un Spirit Cage, tu misión será almacenar los restos de un Ghost, dando ‘use’ con la caja al cuerpo muerto.
Cuando hayas terminado regresa al NPC a reportar tu misión, te dará 500 puntos de experiencia y recibirás el Achievement “Guinea Pig”
Jugador: hi Jugador: mission Sinclair: So, did you find anything worth examining? Did you actually catch a ghost? Jugador: yes Sinclair: Fascinating, let me see. ... Sinclair: Amazing! I will transfer this to our spirit chamber right about - now! ... Sinclair: Alright, the device is holding it. The magical barrier should be able to contain nearly 20 times the current load. That's a complete success! Spectulus, are you seeing this? We did it! ... Sinclair: Well, you did! You really helped us pulling this off. Thank you ! ... Sinclair: I doubt we will have much time to hunt for new specimens ourselves in the near future. If you like, you can continue helping us by finding and capturing more and different ghosts. Just talk to me to receive a new task.
Jugador: hi Sinclair: Greetings Mandolina Magica. I have - very - little time, please make it as short as possible. I may be able to help you if you are here to help us with any of our tasks or missions. Jugador: research Sinclair: We are still in need of more research concerning environmental as well as psychic ecto-magical influences. Besides more common ghosts we also need some of the harder to come by nightstalkers and - if you're really hardboiled - souleaters. ... Sinclair: We will of course pay for every ghost you catch. You will receive more if you hunt for some of the tougher fellows - but don't overdo it. What do you say?
Jugador: yes Sinclair: Magnificent! Alright, we will at least need 5 caught ghosts. We will pay some more if you can catch 5 nightstalkers. Of course you will earn some more if you bring us 5 souleaters. ... Sinclair: I heard they dwell somewhere in that new continent - Zao? Well anyway, if you feel you've got enough, just return with what you've got and we will see. Good luck! ... Sinclair: Keep in mind that the specimens are only of any worth to us if the exact amount of 5 per specimen is reached. ... Sinclair: Furthermore, to successfully bind Nightstalkers to the cage, you will need to have caught at least 5 Ghosts. To bind Souleaters, you will need at least 5 Ghosts and 5 Nightstalkers. ... Sinclair: The higher the amount of spirit energy in the cage, the higher its effective capacity. Oh and always come back and tell me if you lose your spirit cage.
Esta vez Sinclair pide más muestras, los cuales deberás recolectar en este orden: 5 Ghost, 5 Nightstalker y 5 Souleater, y al igual que la misión anterior, después de matarlos, usa el Spirit Cage en el cuerpo muerto. Al hacer esto saldrá el siguiente mensaje en letras rojas:
“As you open the device a bright light pours out of its interior and drags all remaining energy of the ghost into it.”
Recuerda que puedes checar en el quest log (Tibia Tales) para saber cuántos llevas.
Regresa al npc para entregar:
Jugador: hi Jugador: research Sinclair: Alright you found something! Are you really finished hunting out there? Jugador: yes Sinclair: Good, of course you will also receive an additional monetary reward for your troubles. Are you fine with that? Jugador: yes Sinclair: Alright, let us see how many ghosts you caught!
