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 NWN...to 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

Rewards:
  Bear-hide Boots
  Light Bear-hide Boots

as a level 10 doing this in the new mini-quest format (there isn't a physical hide now), I received 15,300 xp and 74 silver and some change (this might be for lvl 11 -- the quest dinged me)
did not receive a choice of boots -- these drop in another quest now

Kyba is the NPC who gives the quest. She is a troll. To find Svartmoln, go to the Jord side of the bridge. Follow the coastline southeast. Just as you begin to climb the hill a bit, stop and wait. He will wander by. Very easy kill.

This is a fool proof way to find him. You can't miss.

From bindstone at Vasudheim, type /faceloc 55000, 15000. You will be faced toward that direction and will have a clear view directly between two buildings. Run straight between the two buildings until you reach the shoreline. Now, type /faceloc 55704, 13850. Svartmoln will come ashore at that location. His spawn rate seemed to vary only slightly. About 5 minutes, average. I stood there and killed him 6 times. It's fool proof. He will always come. =)

I have always found the bear to spawn on the north end on the village and walking towards bind stone. I noticed talking to kyba if you cannot find him seems to speed up the respawn.

Good Luck

Starting NPC is named Troll called Kyba, non merchant, just ask bind stone guard /where Kyba. To find Named Bear to wait by the bind stone, he will trot along soon enough, just intercept him before he gets to the guards

Don't know where he spawn, but saw him twice around 55k, 15k and walking towards the bind stone. I believe the first time was in the morning and the second time was around 7 in the evening. Hopes this help :)

I hate that bear! He doesnt ever spawn when you need him. I ran into town, and he was fighting the gaurd! That is so annoying!

There's so many confusion on where to look for this bear, and all the locs and directions are rather vague so I've decided to post my own findings.

I found the bear at loc 59241,20752. He was heading NWN...to 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.

(These were all the details I wasn't clear on from reading all the previous posts)

Have they updated this quest and changed the bears path?

Looks like it. I found him on the OTHER side of the bridge, on the side of the mountains on the east. The location I found him at was 62205,25631,15008

No that is the same...he never crosses over towards the town, he's always in the Jord side of the bridge.
sorry for those that can't ask around
# Feb 01 2002 at 2:03 PM Rating: Default
I can't say I feel sorry for those that got bad directions because I got the same directions and had the sense to ask others. I mean come on have some adventure about it. Even though I used it too the hunting was just as fun. I do feel sorry that you don't like to adventure and you like to have everything placed out in front of you. You also need to switch to decaf because that b**ch streak may cause you some trouble later in the game.

Light bear skin boots
# Jan 30 2002 at 6:00 PM Rating: Default
I did this quest last night with my lvl 9 runemaster and turned the hide in. I got " Light Bear skin boots". If your familiar with casters (rune & spirit) they can only wear cloth armor, so this quest offers reward for every type.
Q screwed or sumptin?
# Jan 02 2002 at 7:19 PM Rating: Default
I am a level 6 Kobold Hunter... I got the Q fine from Kyba. I waited for the bear on the jord side of the brdige and sure enuf he stroled across in broad day lite. I saw another person waiting for the bear so I send him and invite and we alied then I shot the bear. He was yellow to me. He died pretty ez between the two of us. But when I killed him he didnt drop anything and there was nothing in my inventory but my arrows. He totaly jipped me... Do you have to solo him or something? Someone gimme some advise about this.. Ive seen plenty of posts of ppl grouping him.

Well I am relatively new to DAoC, but i noticed that there is an "auto loot" system that determines who gets what. That person who u grouped with probably got the loot.
Not Kemor or Kyla...

Her name is Kyba (Big female troll) next to the "Healer's" hut and she's in Vasudheim.
Worst directions ever
# Dec 14 2001 at 12:46 AM Rating: Default
did I mention the NPC's name is KYBA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
if you are facing the smith from the front, she is a female troll in the second building to the right. KYBA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Worst directions ever
# Dec 14 2001 at 12:41 AM Rating: Default
Ok this is how you do the quest. I wasted an hour reading these terrible directions. Talk to Kyba in Vas. KYBA! Next go out into the water BEHIND the smith. Get about in the middle of the bay and look towards the smith building. The bear will become visible every 5-10 min day or night. He goes AWAY from Vas/Jord and when he gets to the beach again he will fight crabs that will kill him. You have to reach him before he fights the crabs or you will not get the pelt, and some of the crabs are orange at 8 so they might kill you. I had to do this twice because I was using to comps (healer and thane) and had a little too much beer and forgot to ally. Both chars got the leather boots and they are yellow at lvl 8.

Ok i read these directions and wasted like 45 minutes swimming. If you want to find the bear he spawns near the bridge to the LEFT in the water going to Jordheim. He spawned twice while i tried this quest. (I died the first time...damn phone call)

Ok, one more try at directions *8-).

From the Smith in Vasudheim go onto the bridge, JUST on the Jordheim side, then turn DIRECTLY south. Swim/walk to the OPPOSITE shore spot you can now see. There should be some rock crabs there. One small one conned green to me as level 9 spiritmaster, there's a yellow around too. This is EXACTLY where Svartmoln came ashore. Luckily I'd killed a green crab near him and got to kill hmi first go *8-).

-Ath, currently Dalen the Spiritmaster, level 9
Interesting reward system

My level 6 bezerker and a level 6 huinter did this last night. We both got the quest loot from one kill and turned them in. I got studded boots, she got leather. The reward must vary on what you can wear but the stats were the same, nice touch by Mythic.
