Talk to Magus Agyfen in Camelot.

Magus Agyfen says, "Hail! I trust you are well? I have a mission for you should you be [interested]."

Magus Agyfen says, "Many in our order have begun to speak at length if your missions for Sir Bors. It seems you have succeeded where many of them have failed. I would watch my back when around the likes of them. It is because of this that I hesitate to deliver this message from Captain Rhodri. I do not know that it contains, but I was informed it would be very profitable! May whatever god you worship watch over you. I shall only wish thee luck! Safe travels!"

Travel to Snowdonia Fortress and talk to Captain Rhodri.

[Step 1] Seek out Captain Rhodri at the Snowdonia Border Keep in Snowdonia

Captain Rhodri says, "I had not expected you to arrive so soon. Give me a moment to gather my thoughts."

Captain Rhodri says, "It is good to see you in excellent health. Sir Bors will be most pleased it is you who answered his call for help. We are in need of your skill and the insight you have into the locals of Barfog. As I indicated in your message, you will be rewarded well for your efforts. Are you still willing to [assist us]?"

Captain Rhodri says, "This is good! I am relieved this matter will be resolved quickly in your hands. I shall not waste any more of your time than is necessary. As you are aware, the Twp ap Alsig believe it is the dwarves who have been assisting Tepok with funds and supplies. I truly doubt that dwarves would stomach working with such creatures. Yet, we cannot turn a blind eye to our newest of allies and the mine has proven a burden for too long. Therefore Sir Bors has decided that you must descend into Tepok mines, locate and slay Tepok himself. I am sure this deed should pose no problems for one of your skill. It is said Tepok carries with him a sack containing all this precious items. Return this to us as it may contain clues to location these dwarves. Best of luck to thee."

Rhodri sends you to kill the Overseer Tepok goblin (Yellow at 43,
bring a partner to assist) deep in Tepok's Mine to retrieve the bag and return them to him.

Captain Rhodri says, "Ah! Were you able to retrieve Tepok's precious bag?

Give him the bag.

Captain Rhodri says, "This is what we have been looking for! [Twr ap Alsig] has been deceived. I knew the dwarves have nothing to do with this plot. This dispatch proves as much! The person who write this speaks of supplies. Supplies that originated within Pennine and from a group that makes their home there. While I do not fully rule out the dwarves, we would be wise to turn our attention north and into the mountains."

Deliver dispatch to Twr ap Alsig.

Return to Captain Rhodri.

Captain Rhodri says, "Were you able to deliver the dispatch to Twr ap Alsig?"

Tell him that your "work is done".

Captain Rhodri says, "Very well then! We can now move forward with our plans. While you were away Sir Bors instructed his scouts to scour the borderlands. What they found was quite alarming. It seems the goblins had tunnelled under the pass wall and were using this passage as a means to receive supplies from the north. Before we were able to follow the goblins to the source of their supplies our [scouts were spotted] and the tunnel destroyed."

Captain Rhodri says, "Aye! We are unsure if there are other such passages but if there are, we shall find them. We still need to search Pennine and locate the source of these supplies! Unfortunately we cannot afford to use any of our own scouts. I have been asked to task you with this delicate mission. We can no longer limit our source of information to observation alone. Someone must [venture into the camps] of each race within the Pennine and return solid reports."

Captain Rhodri says, "Not to worry Cabalist! We will not send you into these camps blindly. We have been observing the inhabitants of Pennine for quite some time. Are you still [willing to assist] us in this matter?"

Captain Rhodri says, "Then let us begin! Your first task will be to infiltrate a camp of Tylwyth Teg elves. There is one among them named Delfina. She carries the reports of their people to and from the Tylwyth Teg homelands. Our time is short Cabalist. Do not toy with the targets! Simply locate this Delfina, slay her, and return her reports. I await your return. May your blade be swift and quite!"

Rhodri sends you into Pennine Mountains to hunt the named Twylyth Teg Delfina to retrieve information and return this to him; this named mob can be found at NF loc= 46943, 5291) (also has been found at loc=7.5k 58k and loc=7263,58467)(New Frontiers : found Delfina at loc 47269, 5402 and 48k, 35k, in Pennine mtn. just a little west Bold tower 4). She was a red con protected by two red/oranges at level 43. You will more than likely need help. Once the job is done, return to Captain Rhodri

Rhodri will then send you to Twr ap Alsig in the Llyn Barfog outpost to
translate the document gathered from Delfina and then return to him with the

Captain Rhodri says, "Once again your swiftness is most impressive! Do you have Delfina's reports?"

Hand him the report.

Captain Rhodri says, "This done not bode well. I didn't review the documents in depth, but I don't see any mention of goblins here. Our scribes will have to go over them more closely. You have done well Cabalist! We will require your assistance once we have had more time to review Delfina's reports. Return to me later and perhaps I will have news. Good day to you!"

    Captain Rhodri has been moved at some point, and I have no location on his new station. The border keep is under the control of the Picts, but he is not in the refugee camp area at Swanton Keep, and nobody online appears to know where he is.

    I just completed this quest last night and she was right where the description said she would be.
    My toon is a 43 1/2 Heretic; Delfina and her guards were oj to me and I had no problems. I was able to pull each one individually, so if you can solo oj's then you should have no problems with the quest if you are alone.

    Soloed this when my Cabby hit 43. (Some excellent maps, now, at www.morningstar.info. Click on "Frontiers Maps.") I bound at Castle Sauvage, which is about 10-minute run from Delfina I stood by the river bank around 46943, 5291 and used nearsight to pull. Got killed twice, but "3 was the charm."

    Another good vantage point might be the large field just to the East of Delfina. From that field you can head straight back home after your mission using a SE bee line. (Just avoid the fellwoods to the left and the wolves to the right).

    Received 1,083,932,608 xp and the Construct Ring.

    Interesting note is that the mobs stayed neutral even after I killed several of them. When Delfina repopped she was neutral again.

    Captain Rhodri is still located upstairs in the Snowdonia border keep, but on the opposite side of the courtyard from where he was before.

    Since there are no new maps available for the new frontiers, I used the Keep Status maps on the Camelot Herald to locate Caer Boldiam. Facing the NW bridge (LOC 57029, 12986), follow the shore line to your right to LOC 47268, 4976. Be mindful of the cockatrices & knotted fellwoods when following the shoreline.

    Delfina is with a group of Tylwyth Teg Rangers. I pulled two times, and both times only one extra Ranger came. Both were orange at 45, but fairly easy to kill.

    Well, that was easy. I did it at level 43 with a 41 spirit spec. Guards were red and orange to me and delfina was orange. I rooted the red con and sent the pet in after delfina the lifetapped her to death, picked up what she dropped and ran.

    Hi. I have done this quest as a Spirit Cabalist at level 44 solo. Delfina was orange to me. The two guys which were guarding here were orange and red to me. I sent my pet onto Delfina. She and her two bodyguard directly agro'ed onto the pet. I waited for a couple seconds until pet was at 50% and Delfina at 90 and then nuked away at her for a couple seconds. She was down to 25% health when my pet died. So I started running a bit. After a few paces I turned around and nuked her again and killed her. Then I continued running away from the two bodyguards. Was easy. I actually had to do it twice because on the first attempt pet got finishing blow which didn't count towards my quest record. So make sure YOU get the finishing blow :)

    Hope it helps.


    BTW, I was rewarded 1,245,111,645 experience at level 44 which translated to 1.17 bubbles of experience.

    At level 43 (as a Necromancer) I received 1,083,932,608 exp. It did not make me do the last step either. I returned Delfina's report to Rhodri, got the exp and the ring. Tells me to return at level 45.
