With the Shadowlands Expansion, most professions will find that they have Nano Programs that require a certain specialization to be completed before they are able to upload the nano programs. Specializations also enable a special item for Nano technicians.

There are 4 Specializations in total, each comes in 4 parts that you need to collect. You will need to start at Specialization 1, and progress through them in order.

There are level requirements for the Second Specialization upwards, so make sure you are the right level in order to get your data updated!

So what to do, where to go..

Although you do not need to pick up a quest to get started on collecting your specialization pages or books, when you do have a complete set you will eventually need to head from Jobe Platform. You are headed into The Harbor and to the
Independent Professionals Society
Jobe Harbor - 177x409
. The building is located at 177 x 409, which is right towards the far end of the playfield.

Inside this building, you will almost immediately come face to face with Professor Dedlock.

When you open dialog with him, you will get he opportunity to talk with him, and also to trade with him the chapters or parts of specializations you have collected.

Collecting the Specializations:

The specializations can be collected either by hunting specific faction sided mobs, or by completing Shadowlands Quests. Obviously it is entirely up to you what method you adopt - maybe you will go for a bit of both! Hopefully the information below will help you to get your hands on what you need though!

Specialization 1: The Mariner's Father

For this Specialization Book, written by Gator Ocra, your task is to find chapters 1 through to 4 and combine them to make the book complete.

These chapters are potentially the easiest to get your hands on. You will find that the chapters drop in Nascense.. all the way up to Inferno (although we would strongly advise getting this before you are the level to be in Inferno!!)

Depending on your alignment, you can hunt for the chapters on mobs of the opposing sides and the small birds you will find in the playfield.

Alternatively you can embark on the Nascence Start Up Quests, in which the entire set of chapters are given as a reward.

When you have all 4 chapters, combine them in order to end up with:



Take it along to the Professor, and your character data will be updated to show you have now completed your first specialization!


Specialization 2: The Girl That Saw it All

Again, for this Specialization Book, written by Wibutee Shuzar, your task is to find chapters 1 through to 4 and combine them to make the book complete.

If you want to go hunting for the chapters of this book, then you are most likely to find chapters of this book starting in Elysium and working upwards throughout the Shadowlands on sided mobs.

Alternatively, you will manage to get your hands on chapters 1, 2 and 3 by completing the following quest lines:

Chapter 1 : One Who Wins Over Mind
Chapter 2 : Guard - Ulf Reinhart
Chapter 3 : One With a Graceful Neck
Chapter 4 : Cannot be gained via a quest. You will need to hunt for this one!

So, once you have all 4 chapters of this specialization in your inventory, combine them in order to land yourself with:



There is a level requirement of 91+ required to be able to hand this book in, but assuming that you are - take the book along to the Professor, and your character data will be updated to show you have now completed your second specialization!


Specialization 3: Kanel's Story

For this Specialization, you are hunting for Editions 1 through to 4 of the book, written by Izus Gamadroch.

Perhaps the easiest place, although by no means the fastest in our experience, to find copies of the book are in missions, as missions tend to be full of sided mobs. Alternatively, you can get your hands on all four editions by completeing the Adonis Quests: The rise and fall of Xan Super Civilization.



Once you have all 4 Editions, and you are level 141+, take it along to the Professor and your character data will be updated to show you have now completed your third specialization!


Specialization 4: Afirce's World Catalogue of Books

For this Specialization, you are hunting for Volume 1 through to 4 of the book, written by Afirce Chi. There is also a volume 5 - however this is not used for the specialization questline.

As with the third specialization, perhaps the easiest place - although perhaps not the fastest - to find copies of the book are in missions, as missions tend to be full of sided mobs. However, you can also get your hands on it by completeing the Penumbra - Xan Civilization Quest.



Once you have all 4 volumes and you meet the level requirement of 191, take it along to the Professor and your character data will be updated to show you have now completed your forth specialization!
