En del av problemet är att det är en tidsresa involverad. I Tiden för tvillingarna är det som Fistandantilus , Förr i tiden lär Raistlin Lorac att använda den orb som Lorac hade stulit:
"I have walked these halls as Fistandantilus for months now. These last few weeks I have traveled to all the Towers of High Sorcery - those still standing, that is - to study and learn. I have been with Lorac, in the elven kingdom, and taught him to use the dragon orb - a deadly gift, for one as weak and as vain as he. It will snare him, later on."
-Raistlin Majere, Time of the Twins, chapter 9
Comes to the Tower Lorac Caladon, King of the Silvanesti,
To take his Test in magic before the closing of the Tower.
In his Test, one of the dragon orbs,
fearful of falling into the hands
of the Kingpriest and his minions,
speaks to Lorac.
“You must not leave me here in Istar.
If you do, I will be lost and the world will perish.”
Lorac obeys the voice of the dragon orb,
hides the orb away.
carries it with him from the Tower,
carries the orb back to Silvanesti,
holds the orb in secret, hugging his secret to him,
never telling anyone.
I Dragons of Winter Night , reacquires Raistlin orb från en galen Lorac.
