DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Kyba, in Vasudheim next to the Healer, will give you a pair of boots if you bring her the hide of the bear Svartmoln. He spawns near the bridge. Kill him and bring back his fur and he will give you a reward, class specific of course.

Kyba says, "You help [Kyba and village]?"

Dialog box: Kill Svartmoln, bring back hide?

You have been given the Svartmoln's Appetite quest.

Kyba says, "You waste much time. Svartmoln eat many crabs, many more fishermen. Leave. No come back until have Svartmoln's hide."

[Step #1] Kill Svatmoln. Svartmoln roams near the bridge.

Svartmoln spawns in the water near the wall, he walks towards the bridge and past it and eventually goes to kill crabs on other side of beach. He conned yellow and orange at level 6.

Svartmoln growls in pain.

[Step #2] Bring hide back to Kyba.

Kyba says, "Where Svartmoln hide?"

Kyba says, "You kill Svartmoln. Village honor you. Kyba honor you. Here, take this gift that Kristen, the Norse woman, fashion for you."

You receive Light Bear-hide Boots from Kyba!

You are awarded 1 silver and some copper!
You have finished the Svartmoln's Appetite quest.

I found the bear at loc 59241,20752. He was heading my surprise, I was expecting him to go the other way according the all the instructions. The second time he spawned he was heading a SES direction and was coming from a completely opposit direction(???) Somewhere I read that the bear only spawn during the daytime and I caught him just when the sky was darkening. It was 18h when I found him strolling towards me the first time and 23h the second time.

So in brief:
-he spawn on Jordheim side of the river.
-he can spawn at night
-he wasn't in the water but on land
-it appears that he might have 2 spawn points or he walks SES direction first then heads back. So basically he passes the bridge twice.
-first time I saw the bear, he walked right up to the guards at the Binding Stone and died, and the second time he was swimming on the Vaseudheim side of the bridge and was about to take the same route to the bind stone

lvl 8 Mauler received 15,300 experience, 74 silver and no boots.
lvl 10 received 15,300 experience and 74 silver

  Light Bear-hide Boots

The NPC's proper name is Kyba.
higher max

I don't believe 9 is the max level, since my dwarf healer did it last night at level 10. I would have done it earlier, but Kyba wouldn't give me the quest - not at 5, 6, 7, or 8. Then I went off and leveled to 10 and came back, and _then_ she gave it to me. Svartmoln was green to me at that time, so I guess it's just as well.

OK i am sure of this---i did this quest. To the left of the jord side of the bridge is a ditch. Near the hill where all the low lvl stuff is. If you sit in the ditch and look out across the little bit of water to the right of the wolf island you will see him spawn on the side of the hill. NO worries he swims across the water right after he spawns and comes out into the ditch. He then proceeds to the bridge and across it to his awaiting fate with the guards. I saw this happen 4 times in only 20 (fast spawn rate) and 3 times i got him stolen from me. So the last time i went into the water and took him out there. He was blue to me at 7 so you should have no problem. I am now the proud owner of bear hide boots
Min lvl is wrong

Min level for this quest is 6, not 5.

At least as a Hunter, tried at lvl 5 got some useless gossip but not the quest, came back at lvl6, and got it.

I am SO confused...
Ok I talked to a chick named May in a town south of Val and she told me that the Troll chick was after some bear
Is this the same Troll that gives you the quest to go after Moora?

I dont think Kemor exists?

Yes it is. May just doesn't tell you where to find Kyba but I assure you she is the same troll.

Trivia info : Blackmoln is swedish and means blackcloud

For amusement get a map of Sweden and compare some names to Midgardian...quite funny.

Ok, I've done this quest twice. (Two Chars)
First Kyba is the starting NPC. She is a troll in a building to the south of town. Next to the Smith's building. The bear you need to kill spawns on the east side of the bridge (jord side). If you follow the water line there will be a ditch right before the big hill. She spawns in the ditch. You need to get to her fast. Because she will walk along the water's edge and when she gets to the bridge she will cross and start walking south near the guards. One of the guards will kill her.

Hope this helps.

I just saw him spawn on the other side of the city in newbie area (near wolf island). He was just meandering around... The only other times i've seen him is right after the bloody guard has killed him at the end of the bridge... so keep your eyes open.

The quest starts from Kyba in Vasud. If you are standing on the bridge facing Jord, the bear will be found to your LEFT. He spawns every 10 minutes, walks down the mountain, along the water, on the Jord side. He will pass near the bridge and will be killed by the guards. He will spawn again 10 minutes later.

Hope this helps.

Also, with all quests in DAOC, if the quest has not been given to you (and the step for killing whatever you have to kill is active) you will not recieve the dropped item. Quest and task items are always placed in your inventory upon the death of the mob. If your inventory is full, the quest item will drop to the ground.

If you talk to a NPC and he does not give you the quest he's known to have, it's because you are not of sufficient level yet. I got this one at level 6, I think. Kyba just spewd forth information about the town every level before that. Get the level, get the quest.

You will not get quest from some if you do not have the faction for the town. In the town south of Vasudheim, i could not get quests or tasks, until i did a quest from Jord that sent me to an NPC at the guard tower outside of town.

aye, that's the big one you gotta watch. Some of the "newbie" quests are required to do the higher level ones.. can be a real pain to go back and do them later, so finish ever quest you get, and look for new ones at every level.

I dont think that is correct about faction. I have done several quests and I have not received any faction for towns. I think your faction with all Midgard towns are the same. You probably just didnt have the level or the previous required quest for the quests that were not given to you.

I cant remember the name of the NPC, but she is in the house next to the healer. Its an Troll Female, and shes the only one in the house. The Bear spawns right at the end of the bridge in Vasudheim, on the far side (nearest to Jordheim). He often runs under the bridge to eat crabs, so watch out. I stood there for about 10 mins and he popped up. Easy kill for lvl 10.
spawn time
# Oct 15 2001 at 9:22 PM Rating: Default
I think he spawns at night only. Also, seems to be a long wait for respawn. I'm beginning to wonder if it isn't once per night. Anyone able to verify? First spawn is around 1600 hours.
kyba being lazy
# Oct 14 2001 at 5:05 PM Rating: Default
she doesn't give out this quest to me, do you need to receive the quest before the bear will spawn or do you just wait for the bear then hand in the material to her?
Kyba, not Kemor
# Oct 13 2001 at 10:00 PM Rating: Default
It's actually Kyba, not Kemor. She's in one of the huts in Vasudheim by the water (the one on the right). The bear spawns right near the bridge to Jordheim. If he's not killed, he'll follow the shore under the bridge and the Vasudheim guards will kill him.
not right
# Oct 13 2001 at 6:33 PM Rating: Default
The quest is written wrong. You can get it from Kyla in Vasud heim, not from Kemor, whoever that is. She's a troll in one of the huts closest to the water.
where's kemor
# Oct 12 2001 at 9:49 PM Rating: Default
Where can you find Kemor?
