DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Nob (Loc: 24100, 21300) is worried about Sil and wants you to find him for him. Head out to the tower nearby and ask Sir Dorian if he has seen Sil. (located in Camelot Hills at loc=11947 28358, by the bindstone in Cotswold. )

Sir Dorian will then tell you that he saw him headed towards the statute on the nearby hill which has a statue of a head poking out of the top of it.

Alas, Sil met his maker at the hands of a Spriggarn named Ygwrch Gyrg. If you kill things on the hill, eventually Ygwrch will spawn and you can get revenge for poor Sil and a nifty cloak as well (Gyrg's Cloak, plus to quickness). Now return to Nob and tell him the bad news for some extra experience. (Note: When facing Ygwrch be sure to pull him from opposite Master Dunwyn (previously stationed at SI portal near Adribard's Retreat). I tried this quest and Dunwyn took out Ygwrych before I could get him.)

Ygwrch is a level 7 Monster, so this quest is most easily done either grouped at level 7 or at level 8. When I killed him, he was linked to two Spriggarns.

For clarification, say "Have you seen Sil?" to Dorian. He'll chat for a minute with you.

The Buried Statue is Due East of Sir Dorian. Loc is about 31k, 25k.

I found the named Spriggan closer to 34k 27k, beyond the hill just a ways.

And yes, this is a very pretty cloak.

I've done this three times with three characters. Each time, Gyrg was wandering the buried statue. No extra aggro, no wait.

A very pretty cloak, for a newbie quest. Can't get cloaks like that for a long time.

Go due east from the tower where Sir Dorian is and you'll run right into the buried statue.

Did this one last night with a Level 9 Paladin solo. No sweat. Had one spriggarn join in, but he was no problem. Sir Dorian didn't want to talk about Sil either, had to /whisper sil to him to get him to open up. Gyrg seems to spawn in the woods near the statue, not right at the statue himself. He seems to spawn about every 5 minutes.

i think that recently sometimes he hasnt been there. ive done the quest before, i do know where he is. yet yesterday i wanted to do this with my infiltrator and he was _not_ there. that's on the guinevere server. its not that they dont know where to look.. he hasnt been there a few times it looks like. hope this helps
Two Stables ...
# May 10 2002 at 7:40 AM Rating: Default
A big problem is sitting in the wrong stable ...
They look exactly the same :(

Nob is at the stables where Haruld is the Merchant. If you're at the stables near the pigs in the feild at the back of it then that's the wrong one. (been there - done that hehe)

With the pig field in front of you and the stable behind run forward and off to the left slightly, you'll find another stables and Nob is inside there.

Nob is also central to the Lady Leana quest.

Do NOT lie to nob. He won't give you the exp if you tell him sil is alive, & it seems to be irrepriable. Solo'd quest at lvl 8. Friggin died when a 4th sprigan flunkie joined in. One more slash would've done it, & I friggin missed. Overall, lost half a bar of exp.

RE: Nob
# Dec 17 2001 at 9:07 AM Rating: Default
I have the same problem. I got the quest from Nob, killed Thing-a-ma-Bob, got the cloak, and have been waiting for Nob back in the stable for 8 hours. 8 hours of not doing anything. Sitting. Waiting. No Nob.

And yes it is the right stable. Remember, he was there for me to get the quest, but the little ****** ain't there for me to finish the quest.
# Dec 05 2001 at 6:35 PM Rating: Default
I hope this help the ones who can't find Nob.

Fullname : "Nob the Stableboy"
LOC : "24100,21300" in Camelot Hills inside a stable.

Statue of a head

Nob is AWOL
# Nov 23 2001 at 12:40 PM Rating: Default
I did this quest a couple of weeks ago with my Minstrel. Now all Thanksgivine Weekend i've been trying to do the quest with my new lev 8 Friar and Nob is not there..I think the quest is broke. Yes I know where Nob is supposed to be, Inside the stable. Does he move around?
RE: Nob is AWOL
# Nov 23 2001 at 1:13 PM Rating: Default
Nob is not broken, I just now started this quest 20 minutes ago, and waiting for Gyrg to spawn.

I've looked for hours trying to find Nob the Stable Boy. I can't find him and the guards tell me they haven't heard of him. Can someone please enlighten me of his location.
RE: Nob?
# Nov 21 2001 at 5:08 PM Rating: Default
He is actually inside the stable you see on the right handside of the path when going to Ludlow. Remember he is INSIDE the stable not outside with the stable master. This is the same Nob for the silver chain quest, were you have to kill the Faries around the lake behind the stable.
RE: Nob?
# Nov 19 2001 at 1:53 AM Rating: Default
He is at loc 25000 by 21000 in the Hills.

Hey, they've got Brother Maynard in Prythwyn, so why not Nob?

They need Noober in here, though...

cloak colors
# Nov 04 2001 at 10:00 PM Rating: Decent
you can use bleach on this and it turns grey with yellow trim and still orange on the inside. Still has the patterns to it.
Cloak colours
# Oct 27 2001 at 8:53 PM Rating: Default
The main body of the cloak can be dyed, but the edge is still a bit fluorescent and the lining is still a dark blood-red.
My infiltrator has dyed hers green, leaving a yellow-green edge. Using blue dyd turns the edge green: using purple turns it orange, brown or yellow seems to make it more yellow. I haven't seen people running around having tried the other colours yet :)
# Oct 27 2001 at 7:41 PM Rating: Default
As an infiltrator I have one very important question:
Can this beautiful, shimmering, make-you-stick-out-like-a-sore-thumb, red cloak be dyed?
RE: Floran
# May 10 2002 at 7:49 AM Rating: Default
The cloak can be dyed but it will always look a bit 'hey-here-I am' :)

I had a play with the colours:

My Guild recently promoted me so have the Guild Emblem on it now - it looks pretty cool with the border and triangle pattern or the cloak. Maybe get this for 'ceremonial' use :)

# Oct 20 2001 at 9:50 AM Rating: Default
you don't need to /whisper you can just say Sil and it will trigger the response
Sir Dorian
# Oct 18 2001 at 8:34 AM Rating: Default
Dorian doesn't talk about it just by right clicking on him.

If you notice in your journal for quests that it has [sil], which means sil is the trigger to make sir dorian talk about it.

Target Dorian and /whisper do you know sil?

He will talk to you about it then.
Sir Dorian
# Oct 17 2001 at 7:40 AM Rating: Default
The guy is getting old, say 'Sil' to bring his menory back ;-)


Sir Dorian won't spill the beans
# Oct 16 2001 at 5:53 PM Rating: Default
Anyone else hae a problem with Sir Dorian talking to them about Sil? I have the quest and I was level 9 when I got it (10 now, so should work still) but when I talked to Sir Dorian no "prompt" was given and he didn't say anything about sil... my journal didn't update either, still says I need to talk to Sir Dorian. Anyone care to explain or help? Thanks in advance.

where is nob
# Oct 12 2001 at 9:08 AM Rating: Default
I can't find nob. None of the guards have heard of him. Arrr i really want this quest. :(
RE: where is nob
# Oct 12 2001 at 10:40 AM Rating: Excellent
Nob the Stableboy (his full name) is found like this.

From Cotswald, head stright out on the road away form camelot. Turn left at the intersection, Nob will be at a little building (a stable) on the right.

Talk to him, then cross the road and head a bit to the left to find Sir Doria at the nearby guard tower.

Talk to Sir Dorian, and head back behind nobs's stable, where you'll be able to see a hill with a statue on it.

Quest takes about 10 Mins to complete
