DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Characters that were created after Patch Version 1.79 do not receive this Epic quest.

You must complete the Travler's Way quest first. This is the level 11 epic quest for Skalds.

Your trainer in Jordheim tells you he wants the hobyah named Rasczel's nose. He is said to be located in the deep forest near Jordheim.

Go to Fort Veldon, the hobyah's only spawn at night and can be seen from one of the Fort Veldon buildings, just West (loc=41549, 4816 Vale of Mularn).

There are many hobyahs. Rasczel is a named hobyah and Rasczel spawns there but he doesn't always drop his nose. Make sure you get the one named "Rasczel's nose", as there are lots of hobyah noses. (It's been mentioned that you can obtain Rasczel's nose from any hobyahs.)

Bring it back to your trainer for a magic item.

Maybe try grouping with some people, you should still be able to complete the quest in a group.
This quest Zerker style
# May 03 2002 at 6:15 AM Rating: Default
Went on the zerker quest. Yep. its right next to the fort. It appears they show about 8 or 9 and leave at EXACTLY 6 am. But there is lotsa killing to be done between then. Got about 3 bubs outta that nite. Anyway you get a lvl 12 zerker necklace +6 hits +4 str. Pretty nice item. Easy quest.

FYI, hobya noses can be sold now, i noticed. only wortha few silver though.
Quest for skald
# Feb 28 2002 at 8:16 PM Rating: Decent
I got this quest as a skald from my skald trainer Leif in Jordheim.

The quest was refered to as "Rasczel's Nose" though, not Bane.

1) Go to Fort Veldon north of Jordheim
2) Wait until dark
3) Go west of the merchants/smith in town
4) Watch out for the big angry Vendos.
5) Hang in the periphery (there's a good hill side to use as a lookout post to the south)
6) Wait for Rasczel to spawn
7) Attack him, he will say something like "I have given my nose away to a hobya" Kill Rasczel.
8) Kill any three Hobyas around. The third will drop the nose
9) Go back to Leif in Jordheim and get yur necklace.

Oh... Rasczel is one of the Hobyas
RE: Quest for skald
# Feb 28 2002 at 9:37 PM Rating: Default

" Rasczel is a named hobyah "
exact local?
# Feb 10 2002 at 6:13 AM Rating: Default
wandered around the camps and fort veldon looking for hobya at night. didn't see a single one. lots of rabid wolves, hill cats and other assorted agro, but no hobya. i was there from 10pm night to 5am, but no sign of them. is there an exact local that I should be looking at?

I killed Rasczel about 20 times no drop then I started to kill any hobya that moved and got the nose in about 3 kills.Why would someone else have your nose??????
RE: kill'em all
# Jan 31 2002 at 3:27 PM Rating: Default
If you read the message that Rasczel says, he tells you that he switched noses with another hobyah so you can't find it. He basically taunts you with this info. And to your comment about why would someone else have his nose, keep in mind they are a form of undead. Switching noses, or any body part for that matter, is as simply as you and me exchanging car keys, or (to be more game related) putting stuff in a trade window and switching items that way. (I did this quest with an alt zerker.)

A level 12 spiritmaster can't get this quest so I don't think it's for all classes.

Rasczel's nose
# Dec 14 2001 at 1:14 AM Rating: Default
Kill hobya's.. until you get "rasczel's nose"..
NOT "hobya's nose".. they are worthless..
LOC: due west of Veldon (north of Haggerfel,
which is north of Mularn) (about 43k x 11k'ish)

I had to kill about 30 Hobya's before I got the
real nose. They only spawn at night. I'm a level
14 Berserker..

Received "Berserker Strength Necklace"..
Level 12 Item. Strength Increase and Hits Increase. Got 6 silver and some copper.

Still waiting for it to drop.=)

Haaken Didn't Accept Nose!
# Dec 06 2001 at 12:40 AM Rating: Default
The quest told me to bring Raczcal's nose to Haaken. I killed Racscal, and he dropped a "hobyah nose" which I brought to Haaken and he told me "I can sniff out a real nose ... this is not Raczcal's nose ..." and my nose disappeared. What gives?? Strangely also, the Berserker trainer who gave me the quest was the troll upstairs in Jordheim. It asked me to bring the nose to Haaken. Anyone else have this experience? I kind of feel ripped off!
RE: Haaken Didn't Accept Nose!
# Dec 06 2001 at 4:36 AM Rating: Default
The nose you need is called "Raczcals Nose" and is dropped in the area where you found him. The trick is that he does not have his own nose (smile), it is dropped by one of the other hobya. Just kill them till you get the right nose.
RE: Haaken Didn't Accept Nose!
# Dec 07 2001 at 10:04 AM Rating: Default
That Raczcal is a tricky devil -- easily dispatched -- and I am a wicked, but lazy troll! Time to go feed a whole tribe of hobya some serious axeblades ...

Hobyas are west of Fort Veldon? All I've seen are a crapload of vendo camps.
# Nov 25 2001 at 1:38 PM Rating: Default
Did this quest today. Hobya's are night spawn ghost looking things. I found 'em just south of the merchants at Fort Veldon. Watch for the Bone collectors. They conned orange to me at Lvl 11 and can Paralyze you. Cheers!

I believe if a quest starts with a class trainer NPC, then it's probably a class specific quest since my shaman has never been able to talk with a non-Shaman trainer.

My hunter hit 11 yesterday, got the dorga hunter epic quest. Hit 12 this morning, didn't get any quest when I trained. Think this is a class specific.
