04.06.05 Per patch 1.75:
- Forged Excellence - Dooben and Vandush have been relocated to Salisbury Plains. They can be found along the shoreline near the slave camp.
Characters that were created after Patch Version 1.79 do not receive this Epic quest.
At Lady Nimue when she asks you to choose one of the sub quests, choose
[shard of Sequence] and you will be given the Forged Excellence quest.
Lady Nimue sends you off to speak to Erstal Furlan, the smith at West Downs about the shards of Sequence.
At West Downs, ask Erstal about the [shards of Sequence]. He will tell you the story of Arthur's sword named Sequence and how it was broken by Lancelot while completing an epic quest.
At the end of the story he tells you to go get the shard from inside a mud golem named Dooben. . Go kill Dooben at loc=57585, 11352 and receive a Shard of Sequence (level 50 item with no properties).
Return to Erstal with the jewel and give it to him. He tells you it can be combined with another item, gives it back to you and sends you off to slay the wood ogre seer, Vagdush.
Vagdush is at loc=58604,21724 in the Salisbury Plains
When you slay Vagdush (yellow to me at level 15), you receive Vagdush's Seer Amulet (level 40 item with no properties).
A check of your journal tells you that you need to combine these jewels at the forge in Ludlow, Black Mtns. South, (forge is at loc=49292,46291) Run on over to the forge and right-click on it to combine the items. You receive a Sequence Ring from the Forge.
You have finished the Forged Excellence quest!
