A Library Assignment is a set of research tasks that Lords/Ladies (and above) with access to the Crystal Library can do to help recover Zugzwang's hunting research, before they get destroyed by Zurreal's army of inorganic magical-tech mice.

To start an assignment, hunter's must travel to the Crystal Library and click on the brown "Get Assignment" button on the heads-up display (HUD). Opening an assignment envelope requires a minimum number of library points, and each envelope contains between one and three related assignments, where only one will be randomly selected. Each hunter can only have at most one assignment at any point of time, which will show up on their Special tab.

Research tasks may be completed in any order, with the exception of Mystic/Technic King Assignments, Mystic/Technic Amplifier Assignments, M400 Hunting Research Assignment, and Acrostic Research Assignment. It is possible to complete multiple research tasks in a hunt if the requirements are fulfilled. Completing assignments will earn hunters rewards based on the assignment carried out, along with Library Points which are required to start more advanced assignments. These rewards include a Tome of Wisdom which can be opened for further points towards rank advancement, if the hunter does not already have too many in their inventory. Additionally, a completed assignment is logged in the Hunter's Journal, and provides the hunter an opportunity to share a Luck Charm with friends.

Hunters can choose to terminate an assignment prematurely by smashing it with their Hunter's Hammer. However, they will be only be able to start a new assignment one hour after smashing.

This envelope contains an assignment to research a trap capable of capturing Zurreal the Eternal. The Trap's concept is simple: Tempt Zurreal close by displaying a collection of rare knowledge then drain all magical and electrical energy from the area to disable his walking throne.

Good luck brave hunter, the safety of the Crystal Library relies on your success!

Requirement: 900 Library Points

Zurreal Trap Research Assignment

Travel across the Kingdom in search of supplies to build a trap capable of disabling Zurreal the Eternal's walking throne long enough to capture him. Such a trap will need some very unique materials to draw all magical and electrical energy away from Zurreal while remaining powered itself.

Tasks: All ten of the following tasks

Note: Assignment progress will not be reset if it is smashed by the Hunter's Hammer, allowing hunters to complete another short assignment while waiting for the last Warp Nail from the Realm Ripper mouse.
