DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

04.06.05 Per Patch 1.75:
- The Red Dagger - Joseph Domr can now be found in Gotar, near Fort Atla. Korban now resides somewhere in Gotar as well.

Characters that were created after Patch Version 1.79 do not receive this Epic quest.

Given to you by your guild trainer in Jordheim. He tells you that there has been some bandit activity that has people concerned in the area. He tells you to seek out Gordon Tuhan in Mularn(loc=52320,51144 Vale of Mularn, inside the building behind the Viking Trainer.), for he has discovered a red dagger in his house after driving off one of the thieves. You speak to Gordin Tuhan and he tells you a small amount of the tale, and then asks that you seek out Karl Gat in Vasudheim. This guard, he says, is very concerned that this might be part of a larger plot.

You speak to Karl Gat and he tells you some more history about what's been going on, and asks that you seek out a rogue for him named Joseph Damr, who is at loc=26000, 1200 near tomte hill in Gotar. This rogue had fled town when Karl Gat had gone to question him about the red daggers.

You can find Joseph Damr is located around 26000, 1200 in Gotar, north of Ft. Atla. He knows why you're there, and doesn't waste time talking. After you kill him, you receive a red dagger, which you then take back to Karl Gat. Karl Gat accepts the red dagger and gives you experience and an item. He then tells you to seek out Lynnleigh on an island near Vasudheim (Lynnleigh spawns 17h 00m to 8h 00m).

Lynnleigh tells a tale of her brother, Joseph, and how he ran off with the bad band of the Red Daggers. She mourns his death, and blames the Red Daggers for leading him down that path, and wants revenge. She has discovered what the Red Daggers are looking for, items forged by a specific smith who has learned how to empower his items with magic. She tells you to seek Genlu in Haggerfel and warn him of his danger.

Genlu is shocked to find that the Red Daggers seek the knowledge he carries, because they cannot use it without the knowledge of the Seithkona. However, he warns that if they were to obtain that knowledge there could be trouble. He asks that you gain strength, wisdom and experience and return to him when you have so that you can continue on the quest.

    Red Dagger mob spawned after killing Joe

    Has anyone else experienced this? Its something unexpected and not in the walkthrough. After killing Joesph Domr, a man called Red Dagger popped up next to me and started attacking. He conned red++ to my level 17 thane. Luckily, while waiting for Joesph to spawn and solo him, a thane doing the same quest and his healer friend asked me to join them to do the quest together. I think I drained the healer completely :) but managed to kill Red Dagger (got 65K exp as well).

    Red Daggers are quite common mobs round that area, I think. =)

    I've hunted worgs around the hill that Joesph Damr spawns at (hill right next to the trainer and vault keeper hut) and I've never seen a Red Dagger around (probably too high level to be in that area), where do they come from then?

    You don't need to kill them. You kill Joseph and GET a Red Dagger.

    After killing Korban, Talking to the Githja with the scroll in hand, and then talking again to Lynnleigh I received a Pair of War Ravager's Sleeves (Str 9, Dex 2, and AC Factor of 40 Chain) which are pretty nice I must say. I still have the Scroll of Seithkona, so I am assuming it is still relevant as part of quest. At 20th level Lynnleigh told me to come back when I was stronger for the next step of the quest.

    This quest is easy. I went down twice and he was waiting for me on the hill. Maybe I was lucky. However, the gauntlets are +2 to stormcalling, not 1. No, you don't get extra spells when your stormcalling spell goes up but I assume the effectiveness of your current spells goes up. *shrug*

    Anyway, good luck, Thanes,

    Oops, I meant to say that I went down to Gna Faste twice and he was waiting for me on the hill both times. Whatever you do, buff yourself as soon as you get off the horse, because he had a fairly decent aggro range and it was close, without buffs. After I killed him, a lady spawned almost on top of me and attacked, so be careful

    OK, apparently some people forget that things are different for different classes...

    Step 1
    Talk to Karl Gat at the bridge in vasudheim.
    He tells you to kill Joseph Domr out in WW, short ways away from Gna Faste on a lil hill...

    Step 2
    Go back to Karl and give him the dagger you got from joseph and you get a nice strengthened hauberk.

    Step 3
    Go talk to Lynnleigh... Night time spawn only on the little island between vasudheim and audliten in the water... She is next to a big stone..
    She tells you you go talk to Genlu, a smith in haggerfell, you need to go to him and say something about the red daggers needing his wisdom...

    from there i don't know yet, as he wouldn't respond when i told him that...

    more when i get it..

    I get to Lynnleigh but she won't talk to me. She just keeps saying "Why are you here" or something like that.
    Do I have to say something in particular to her to get her to respond?

    I'm a berserker. Step #6 says, "Seek out Morlin Caan in Jordheim." Well, I found him but he won't speak to me. He just cleans his blade. I can see my face in the thing. Is there a certain phrase I need to say?
    RE: Morlin Caan
    # Dec 18 2001 at 11:52 PM Rating: Default
    Ok, for anybody else having this problem, I went back and talked to Genlu again and he gave me the next step. Annoying no? Anyway, happy questing.

    Gods bless to you guy,

    i'am on the red dagger quest and it stops in Haggerfell at Genlu. I told him the text: "Roten Dolche suchen nach Weisheit" (german), but nothing happens. Can you help me to go on with this quest. What is the right text, even in german language?

    The gloves..while nice many Thanes out there can use +1 to Stormcalling? By my guess, about 85% of the Thanes I've met kept it maxxed all the time, and there's no real benifit adding a point if you've got it maxed..

    Added 1 to one of these skills (like Battlesongs for Skalds) increases the power of the songs you already have, making mezzes more effective, for instance, or direct damage spells do more damage.

    # Dec 07 2001 at 9:48 AM Rating: Default
    Seems to be a lot of confusion for this quest.

    Let me sum up.

    Lvl 15:

    -Talk to Gordon Tuhan in Mularn.
    -Talk to Karl Gat in Vasudheim.
    -Go to Gna Faste and kill Joseph Damr on the hill just north of the building.
    -Go back to Karl Gat in Vasudheim.
    -Go to the island west of Vasudheim that has a stone in the center. Talk to Lynnleigh, whom only pops at night. /say Joseph.
    She gives you an item, depening on your class, so the quest items for this quest on this site are not accurate for all.

    Lvl 20:

    -Talk to Genlu in Haggerfel. He's in the building just to the left of the entrance. The guards will not point you to him.
    -Go to the circle of stones in Skona Ravine. This circle is on your map, in the northern section of the ravine. You can just go from Gna west to that mob infested fort, follow west and you'll see the stones. She's in the center. Was yellow for me at 20.
    -Talk to 'Gythja of Bragi' in Jordheim. You have to say 'scroll of seithkona', then give her the scroll.
    -Seek out Lynnleigh again. /say Thane's Blood, then /say Korban.

    I'd love to offer more, but she disappeared as I was talking to her, and saying these things doesn't do anything for me. I did get a set of (skald) gloves though.

    I went to my guild trainer in Jordheim at after i became 15th lvl and I wasn't given this (or any) quest. I am a warrior, is there something I need to say or something I'm doing wrong?

    # Dec 09 2001 at 4:59 AM Rating: Default
    You may not have done the quests leading up to this one. The series will have been a level 7 quest (A Deed of Old, if I remember correctly) followed by a level 11 quest (it's Rasczel's Bane for Berserkers, different for Warriors). They all originate from your guildmaster in Jordheim. So, basically, if you've done all the quests your advanced class guildmaster in Jordheim has given you and you are level 15, you should be getting this one.

    Strength and Wisdom
    # Dec 04 2001 at 11:51 AM Rating: Default
    You have enough 'strength and wisdom' at your 20th season to satisfy Genlu. You can find the next NPC on the 'stonehenge' hill just up from the Willows and just this side of the WW gorge in Skona Ravine. She was blue to me at my 22nd season. The others on the hill do not aggro when you attack her. Now I'm off to Jord to find the one that stands in the temple there. I am just sure they are anxiously awaiting my arrival.

    I'm at the stage where Lynnleigh wants me to ask the various smiths in the realm about [Thane's Blood]. Anyone know which smith responds to this phrase?

    its the smith in audliten
    RE: Thane's Blood?
    # Jan 01 2002 at 8:53 AM Rating: Default
    Yep. And the hint for this is at level 15 (and only before you give Joseph Domr's dagger to Karl Gat) one of the npcs in the Vasudheim bar well tell you to take any items to the smith in Audliten. Not sure if there's a parallel quest line where you join the Red Daggers instead of opposing them or not.

    Does anyone know where to find Lynnleigh? I have looked around each island to the south/southeast of Vasudheim and had no luck :(

    RE: Lynnleigh
    # Dec 09 2001 at 5:09 AM Rating: Default
    The island is the strider-infested one with the stone standing on it. If you did the level 1 Copious Striders quest (which, BTW, I think I still got at level 10) it's the same island. It's the island just off the west bank of the coast toward Vasudheim by the first Tomte camp you come to on the left side of the road from Audliten, if you choose to approach it from the other side. I think it's the only island in this body of water (if you swim around until the water texture changes and you can see a shipwreck, you're past it). If you can't find the island with these directions...well, maybe you still lack the strength and WISDOM for the items you have yet to receive. :)

    I'd be interested to know what you need to do to get hte next part ofthe quest from Genlu as well, I'm level 33 and he gives me the strength and wisdon bit.
