Here follows the step-by-step run through on the quest, as per patch 1.76. Write up by: Rojer of Igraine
Speak to Brother Lensar, who can be found inside the main cathedral of Camelot City, by the exit to the cemetary.
Brother Lensar says, "Greetings, my brother. Are you [well this day]?"
Brother Lensar says, "I am glad to hear that. I myself am well too, but not everyone in this world is. I am thinking of one soul in particular. His name is [Bishop Burhoff]."
Brother Lensar says, "Bishop Burhoff was the most trusted advisor of Lord Aryon. Lord Aryon ruled a castle in Avalon Marsh. During Mordred's Rebellion, the castle was attacked, and Lord Aryon rallied his men to defeat Morgana's armies. Lord Aryon and his men were just about to win when they were betreyed by Bishop Burhoff. He had kept his loyalty to Morgana a secret. He arranged for Lord Aryon to be stabbed and poisoned, then he opened the gates to Morgana's evil creatures. As Lord Aryon lay dying, his men being massacred, he cursed Bishop Burhoff for his treachery. A knight heard the curse, and sacrificed himself to make sure Bishop Burhoff died and [the curse was fulfilled]."
Brother Lensar says, "The curse insured that Bishop Burhoff would haunt the Vetusta Abeey in the night. But we of the Church believe that Bishop Burhoff has come to feel regret for his actions and we wish to know more. All we are lacking at this point is a brave soul to assist us. Do you happen to [know of one]."
Will you help the Church find out more about Bishop Burhoff? [Level 19]
You have been given the Bishop Burhoff's Curse quest.
Brother Lensar says, "Your help is most appreciated, (your name). I have prepared a ritual prayer that will help us [determine Burhoff's will]."
Brother Lensar says, "Lately we have seen Burhoff's spirit roaming the halls of this Church late at night. We believe that he wants to talk to us, but cannot yet. I believe he needs something from his former life to [link him to this world]."
Brother Lensar says, "I believe his remains will work as the link. You will have to defeat him to get access to his remains, for he guards them closely. If you could get his skull, that will be enough. Venture to Vetusta Abbey now, and return when you have it!"
[Step #1] Get Bishop Burhoff's skull from him in Black Mountains South. You may find him behind Vetusta Abbey when the day is gone.
Visit the back of Vetusta Abbey,22k,63k, during the hours of darkness (beginning at midnight) and you will find the Dark Bishop Burhoff behind the back of it.
You receive the Burhoff's skull from Dark Bishop Burhoff.
[Step #2] Return to Brother Lensar in Camelot City.
Brother Lensar says, "Wonderful, you have survived that encounter. Search the graveyard for Bishop Burhoff. I have seen him wandering there at night. Give him the skull and he will speak with you."
[Step #3] Find Bishop Burhoff in the graveyard inside Camelot at night and give him the skull.
Visit the graveyard behind the Church during the hours of darkness and give Burhoff's skull to the ghost of Bishop Burhoff.

Bishop Burhoff says, "You wish to speak to me? Am I in [a church]?"
[Step #4] Talk to Bishop Burhoff and find out about his curse.
Bishop Burhoff says, "If I am in a church, then perhaps the time has come to lift the curse that is upon me. If I only I could rid myself of this curse. I could seek out Lord Aryon in the otherworld and [beg his forgiveness]. But as long as I am cursed, I cannot seek him out to beg his forgiveness."
Bishop Burhoff says, "Aye, I would beg his forgiveness. I was entranced by Morgana's beauty and spells, and didn't see the error of my ways until I lay dying. I only wish now to make it right. But I need help to [break the curse]."
Bishop Burhoff says, "To break the curse, I need a adder fang. I will use it to slice my [ties to this earth], breaking the curse. When I was alive, you could find them in Forest Sauvage. I'd start there."
[Step #5] Get an adder fang from a forest adder in Forest Sauvage. Search Petitcrieu's Run South, which is southeast of the mile gate, Porth Excalibur South.
Bishop Burhoff says, "Once you have it, return to me here. Take this skull with you, so that you may speak to me again when you return. The blessing of the Church upon you, my child."
The item you may be requested to retrieve may be different. I have also been asked to retrieve the eyes from a large bear in Llyn Barfog. Also you may be asked to get an eye from a gwr-drwigiad in Llyn Barfog. Go to where Bishop Burhoff has sent you and kill the creature he indicated for the necessary item.
[Step #6] Return to Bishop Burhoff in the graveyard in Camelot at night and give him the skull.
Bishop Burhoff says, "You have returned. Do you have the adder fang for me? I wish to leave this world and seek out Lord Aryon in the beyond. Please give it to me now."
[Step #7] Turn in the adder fang to Bishop Burhoff.
Bishop Burhoff says, "Thank you! I have a reward for you for helping me. It is something I will no longer need now, but I think you will like it and it will serve you well. I thank you again for helping me, and I know the Church thanks you too. Now to seek out Lord Aryon's forgiveness."
