Examining the Twilight Rune of Earth, you can almost feel its power extending further into the Elementium Depths.

It's probably connected to other runes. Initiate Goldmine thinks that you should destroy all of them.


You will receive: 9g 40s (or 16g 54s at max level)


We still have some runes to destroy, <name>.


That'll teach 'em to move in on our territory!

What's that over across the way?


On accept, the Earth Rune is destroyed automatically:

Initiate Goldmine says: You destroyed their Earth rune! I bet there are three others. And, I bet they're all linked to the fire portal in the back.
Initiate Goldmine says: We better destroy them all. But first, I need to get the shrapnel out of my backside.

Keep heading back to the northwest. Next is the water rune:

Initiate Goldmine says: Did you get wet? I'm soaked! Okay, what do you want to bet the next rune is attuned to air?

Further along is the air rune:

Initiate Goldmine says: The blast of air totally dried my hair. That gives me a great idea for a spare flying machine engine!

Finally, at the exit of the tunnel leading to a natural cave is the rune of fire:

Initiate Goldmine says: Ahahahaha, that's the last of their runes! Twilight Suckers, no more elemental power for you!

On complete:

Initiate Goldtooth yells: Wait! What's that over there?
