Look at the maximul level need to attain the quest. Its 5, and you are 6 so it wont work. If you are really desperate start over.
Level for quest
# Jan 10 2002 at 2:24 PM Rating: Default
I believe that you can get this quest only at level 3. May still be an option at level 4, but I'm fairly sure level 5+ can not get it. When I got it at level 3 I had already bought a bronze **** sword which did far more damage. I used this sword anyway for a couple of levels, now it sits in the vault collecting dust.

I am a level 6 dwarf healer. When I try to buy the bronze sword it tells me that I cannot use this item, do I want to buy it anyway. I accept and it then tells me that that item number wasn't on the list. I've gone to a couple of blade sellers and they all say the same thing. Help.

Don't do it, you can't use a swords as a healer...

Besides, the sword isn't really that good anyway, you'll level up to 7-8 in no time and then the sword is useless.
RE: Can't buy Sword
# Jan 22 2002 at 1:15 PM Rating: Default
Thanks for replying :) Actually, I had to do it because I had the quest. I did it by draging the weapon down to "buy" instead of highlighting the weapon and pressing "buy." I am now looking for a newbie to give the sword to. :)

Level limit?

I am a level 5 shadowblade, and after traveling all the way to Vasudheim to do the quest, Gridash just sits there and stares at me. Is there a level limit to the quest, or does Gridash just have a thing for sitting there silently?
Is the quest removed?

I had my level 7 bezerker try to do this last night (been trying since level 5) and have yet to receive the quest. Is it busted or do bezerkers not get it?

The quest wasn't nerfed. Damage was displayed properly in the last patch.
The DPS is wrong
# Nov 14 2001 at 11:41 PM Rating: Decent
I just did this quest tonight, the guy stand near the stable master. But the reward was a DPS2.1 Spd2.4 sword labeled as above, Sveabone hilt sword. Unless there is more than one reward, this quest got nerfed.

Also, I could not do this quest with my level 9 Thane, nor my friend with his Level 8 warrior. I created a new Norse Viking and did it. So the level range is reduced a bit now too.

The description above lists the damage, not the DPS. It wasn't untill the recent patch that items show DPS. If you do the math, you will see that it is still the same.

I did this quest at lvl 6. The pup and young variety of sveawolf did not drop the tooth. I had to kill a sveawolf (just plain, no pup, young, or mother prefix). Don't know if drop is random or level controlled, because my wife's character got the drop off a pup with a lvl 3 character.
RE: Sword Quest
# Dec 29 2001 at 2:33 AM Rating: Default
I believe items don't drop of creatures if they are gray....that is why you needed to kill a higher level wolf to get it. I killed a pup at lv 1 to get it...

I'm not sure if anyone noticed but when i did this quest with my troll shaman I lost 1 constitution. Got the message with the quest completion messages in text window. Am I the only unlucky one?
Young Sveawolf
# Oct 24 2001 at 11:43 PM Rating: Default
I killed a Sveawolf Cub and did not get the drop, so I killed a Young Sveawolf next to it and did get it. Must be random.

Its becuase the Sveawolf Cubs don't drop it, and the young sveawolfs do :)

Yes they do.

I've done this quest many times and I've always just gone and killed the first Svewolf CUB I saw and got the tooth immediatly. It's an automatic drop into your backpack.

Please believe me. 4 times on this quest for me now.

To all those people that are trying to say that there is a specific Sveawolf that you need to kill...YOUR NUTS!! All you have to do is GET THE QUEST, GET THE SWORD FROM ARMORER, GIVE THE SWORD TO GRIDASH, GET THE NEXT STEP OF THE QUEST FROM GRIDASH, GO KILL THE FIRST SVEAWOLF YOU SEE (it will automatically give you the tooth needed) GIVE THE TOOTH TO GRIDASH, and then say thank you!

I have done this quest 3 seperate times and twice for friends and newbies. as long as you follow the STEPS, you should not have a problem getting the tooth from any Sveawolf (cub to mother and beyond).

Thanks for listening and sorry I yelled. :-)
RE: Sveawolf Sword Quest
# Nov 19 2001 at 1:37 AM Rating: Default
I also got the tooth the first time. My steps were exactly the same as the post above (the guy who yelled at everyone) :-)

I agreed with him that if you get the quest in the right order, you should get the required item on the first kill. Just my experience so far.

RE: Sveawolf Sword Quest
# Nov 09 2001 at 8:24 PM Rating: Default
you need to kill... YOUR NUTS!

RE: Sveawolf Sword Quest
# Oct 24 2001 at 11:47 PM Rating: Default
The first Sveawolf you see DOES NOT automatically give you the tooth. If it did for you then you got lucky. Sometimes it is the second or third, and I have gotten it from a Sveawolf cub and a young sveawolf.
Did it too
# Oct 22 2001 at 11:38 PM Rating: Decent
I did this quest and although I simply enjoy completing quest this sword really didn't do me any good. Its a fine weapon for lower level characters which by the way I gave it to a lower level guy just walking in the woods. He was so happy I thought he was going to hump my leg.

Do all the quests. If you don't like the item, give it to a newbie. Support them anyway you can. The faster they level up, the better it is for our realm. The realm raids are going to start happening, everyone needs to do their part...
Tooth
# Oct 21 2001 at 10:11 AM Rating: Default
Did this quest at level 11. Was pretty much a waste of time since the sword is useless to me. I got the tooth from a grey cub (way grey). It dropped no problem. Not sure what you others are doing wrong, but I have never had a problem with greys dropping quest items automatically. As long as the quest it listed in my journal, I get the items.
correct lvl range
# Oct 20 2001 at 2:28 PM Rating: Decent
Just before restarting my character, since I messed up my trade skills, I was lvl 10 and I got the quest and walked just out side the city of Vas and killed a cub and got tooth right off the bat and I got the sword, although it was grey to me.

After restarting my character I did it again but this time I killed a young sveawolf(cubs woudn't drop it for me) and got it... so just try them all is my suggestion. Might be random if it comes from Cub, Young or mother... but do to lvl of this sword I think it's logicaly limited to cubs and young. Just keep trying.

Cheers,

I think the level range is too large.
# Oct 20 2001 at 1:17 PM Rating: Decent
I think the level range on this quest is too large. My level 7 skald did this quest last night and when she acquired the sword, it was green. Since she is already using an iron longsword, the only thing she got from this quest was finding out that, if you kill a gray mob for a quest item, the item isn't dropped. All the sveawolves around Vasudheim were gray and after killing 3 of them without acquiring the requisite tooth, she went to the sveawolf mothers area where the mothers conned green. Those gave, not only the tooth for this quest, but also the sveawolf mother pelts for the level 7 equipment quest.
Sveabone Hilt Sword not for everyone!
# Oct 19 2001 at 3:34 PM Rating: Decent
I did this quest as a mystic and i don't recommend it to anyone without the skill to use it.. I spent my money and time and in the end I can't use it nor is it worth selling..I believe this quest should be class specific.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 19 2001 at 4:52 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I did this quest at level 3. I got my tooth from a grey cub. go figure. I cant get the blasted spiders to drop parts for a rogue quest to galu.
clarification
# Oct 18 2001 at 6:45 PM Rating: Decent
Location of the tooth:
Just outside of Vasudheim, headed west, on the right side of the road, there is a small island with a bunch of newbie sveabone wolves. There is a large sveabone wolf that spawns on the island from time to time. This is the one to kill for the tooth.
I did this at level 3 or 4 (cant remember which). The regular wolves were green or blue. The large one was yellow.
Hope this helps.
Cubs Definitely Drop The Tooth
# Oct 18 2001 at 1:23 AM Rating: Decent
I agree. Killed a sveawolf, killed a sveawolf mother. On a whim I killed a pup and sure enough that was what gave me the tooth. The quest dialog is slightly misleading there.

# Oct 17 2001 at 12:24 PM Rating: Default
Interesting. I picked up this quest at level 9, and have killed several Sveawolf mothers (they are grey to me) without receiving the quest tooth. This is unusual, since, usually, killing a mob for a quest gives you the quest item, even if you get no XP or other loot from the mob.

I haven't had a chance to tackle any of the other Sveawolves which might give me loot and XP, nor have I tried a tooth looted by a character who got XP and loot for the kill.

I killed a pup which was grey and did not get the quest item message. When I checked my bag to sell later that night I did have the tooth.

Gridash is actually just outside Vasudheim. He's effectively in the city, just outside the zone. That's probably why they put East Svealand as the starting spot.

If you start near Vasudheim, make a point to do this quest. Even if you don't spec in sword this is a great weapon for the first couple levels.

The sword you get from this quest is a magic weapon which adds +1 sword skill. Very nice for the level you get it.

It's like spreading out your skill points in the game where you suck at everything instead of excelling in one.. gah
