I can answer the first question. You can get the lorebooks from Dragonkin Lab before getting the lorebooks from Temple of Aminishi, but you do have to complete Temple of Aminishi once before doing Dragonkin Lab. I know this because of recently doing and obtaining a Dragonkin Lab lorebook before getting the Temple of Aminishi lorebooks. I am unsure on you're second question unfortunately tho I would expect it to help.
Owlninesaid: I've also been going for these books, without any luck. Add me, and we can form up a group sometime, and try to run them a little faster, ya? You're doing in story mode right?░l||l░ Modest Skillers T7 Citadel | Skilling clan recruiting players. ░l||l░

Got all of them and reclaimed my MQC!! Got both Dragonkin books with my 1st trip Friday. Took me 4 trips to get both of the TOA books. This is the weekend to try for them as the chance to get them is doubled.
