Search For The Missing Smith
DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different
You get this quest from Odlran or Ewen outside of Guildhall (Palace) in TnN, he's in the court yard outside of entrance on the the right (oh btw if your a Ranger with goofy Quest bow, that always needs repairs, Morna in same area will repair it).
step 1, talk to Sian in Mag Mell about Ewen, tell him Ceard is missing. You find the Missing Smith in the Cliffs of Moher, in the area past the Fogs where u can walk down to the beach on a long downward slope. Kill tasks are on the beach.
After finding Ceard (loc=20014,29078, he does wander though) on the beach he seems confused and feels he had been robbed by a cliff dweller hunter (another path in this quest is that you may be told to kill a Cliff Dweller Spearman loc=8508,34948,1568), it will drop a nose ring which you must than take to ceard who claims it is not the right ring and gets more of his memory back. Ceard than mentions being hypnotized by Scaird a named tidal sheerie (/loc 4200, 42500 at the Cliffs of Moher). Killing Scaird gives you a cursed ring that has negative stats on it.
Take the cursed ring back to Ceard again who tries the ring on breaking the hypnotization from Scaird but dieing from the curse on the ring. Take the ring back to Cleary the enchanter in Tir Uphost who removes the curse and returns to you the Otherworldly ring. Cleary than tells you to go and see Aideen in Ardee who was Ceard's girlfriend to tell her he is dead. Returning to Aideen completes the quest and she runs off crying over her loss.

Seems best place to find him in the in the center of the depression behind the fog wriaths, he crosses that spot several times on his journeys.
Reward is a Ring.
