Cad Goddeau C (level 25)
DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different
Go to Howth, Cathbad is in the main hut next to the firepot. Tell him, "I walk the path of cad goddeau", then "I need bas' jewel". He will give you a gem called Bas' Jewel and instruct you to hand it over to the Old Hermit.
Return to the Old hermit's hut and(located south of Brynach in the Valley of Bri Leith loc=25787,54683 in a tent.) hand him the gem. He will give u a long paragraph to read about the 4 evils then suddenly disappear and a lvl 30 Druid Spirit will appear in his place. I've only done this part once and i tried to quickcast mez the druid spirit but she resisted and i died shortly after.
Whether you kill this druid spirit or not is not important here, the quest goes on so dont worry if you die. Although with a bit of preparation it is possible to kill the spirit with some help. Ive heard that killing her may give you another interim reward, but again this isnt necessary. You will receive Bas' Jewel once again.
Step 8 requires you to travel east of the Boulder Bridge around Howth and kill a mob called a Druid to obtain the armband. The druid camp can be found by taking the stones that let you cross the river
to the east. Once you cross, just head into the open area to the east. They are easy to kill but run fast. Kill a Druid and he will yell "Mentalist, walking the path of Cad Goddeau? Did not the Old Hermit tell you it is the walk of death?" while he fights. You will automatically receive an armband. Now remember this camp because you will come back here.
