Chapter 1 - Mage Only: After joining the Order as either a Mage or Warrior, and after completing basic training, the masters will each set you to a different test. Talk to Ignatius and take the test of knowledge to start off as this will also help you along the road for the other master's tests. Ignatius' test involves reading all the books in the library, and seems simple enough. There are only 3 books you can read in the small library on the upper portions of the keep, and if you tell Ignatius you read them all, he will call you a liar. There is a catch of course - pulling the right ring by the awning in the small library to unlock a hidden door and access to the large underground library.

Going through all the bookstands here can be tricky but do get them all for the Wisdom bonuses. Some require a bit of problem solving by way of spells. Make sure you have read all the accessible ones then move on to the tricky ones. First, find the hidden room with a skeleton at the far end, on the lowest floor, by pulling a ring to your right. In here are two bookstands. In a room off to the right side is a hole in the floor (and a Crystal Ball of Levitation we'll use in a bit). Drop down to find more bookstands and a Crystal Ball of Open Lock. Using this will enable you to open all chests and doors in the library. Ready the spell by the Crystal Ball and open the door out, and then again the first locked door you came across. This door leads into an empty dark storeroom. With that door open, head back to the Crystal Ball of Levitation. The key with Levitation is that it doesn't consume much mana as long as you float along the floor. Use it to float over to a bookshelf on the lowest floor and then hit [X] to rise up to the top of the bookshelf. From here, jump to the upper room opposite where you activated Levitation. Here you will find another bookstand and the Crystal Ball of Polymorph you will need for access to the last area. Transform into a Nautilus and head through the crack in the wall, then over to the dark empty storeroom you opened earlier. There is another crack here you can slither through, to find the last bookstand and master Abrax for another test.

Return to Ignatius and tell him about your newfound reading skills for this achievement.
