DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

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

This is the preliminary to the Reawakening Quest:

This quest starts in Tir na Nog with the Blademaster Trainer Luighseach. She will tell you to Seek out Torrance the Druid Trainer who lives in Ardee, in front of one of the buildings.loc 54642, 49959

He will ask you if you have heard the tale of Cad Goddeau. Just say yes and save yourself a ton of aggravation. He will tell you about learning from the past and eventually hand you a Druid Plant. Then he tells you to seek out Chief Neasan living in a tree just outside of Ardagh.

Behind the Tower you can see Connla, swim across the water to Connla and hop a horse to Druim Ligen. Jump off of the Horse at Ardagh, and head west, you will see a HUGE tree with a door, this is the home of Chief Neasan.

Give the Druid Plant to Chief Neasan and he will tell you that you must seek out the Old Hermit. And that you must complete a task before the Old Hermit will talk to you. You must defeat The Blademaster.

Hop a horse to The Valley of Bri Leith you will find the Blademaster and Old Hermit near loc=25787,54683 in a tent. If you try to enter and talk to the old hermit he will ignore you until you have killed The Blademaster. The Blademaster wanders around here. I saw a few other creatures but nothing that wasn't neutral to me.

The Blademaster conned yellow to me at 16, and hits in the high 30's to mid 40's. I was able to defeat him barely (I got lucky and dodged a few of his attacks). He drops Coin, Boots of the Deft Strider, and a key.

Upon nearing the home of the Old Hermit he will tell you to give him the key, and then he will talk to you. He will tell you a story about a "dark thing" that a Druid once did and then will ask you if you have anything to give him. Hand him the Druid Plant.

You will gain EXP and obtain a new quest called the quest of the Reawakening, of which you cannot even start until you are Level 20. The new quest will take you to the Cliffs of Moher to rescue a Druid imprisoned by the Moherian Distorters.

Follow the road south to Innis Carthaig and hop another horse to Tie na Mbeo. Ardagh is the town just before there and again speak with Chief Neasan. If you are Level 16 like me he will ask you what you are doing back here. Get Lvl 20 and come back for more adventure.

    My group mate just started to attack the Blademaster and I killed him and it worked out fine, I kept saying "Wait I have to challenge him!!! " but it turns out it worked without me doing that.

    Im a mentalist and I got a nice necklace from him.

    Now I have to wait til 20th I guess.

    what is the bas jewel and how do you get it?

    I completed the all the steps above, but I also got this:
    "Step #4 Seek out the Moheran camp where a Druid is imprisoned. Tell him the Old Hermit has awakened. First, speak with Chief Neasan about the Old Hermit's reawakening and learn the story he speaks of."
    Where is this camp, does anyone know?

    Thanks for your help.

    I just finished with my valewalker and all you have to do is kill the blademaster, he drops a class specific item, xp and the key.

    I went back to the hermit and he spoke to me without giving him the key.

    When the Chief sent me back to the hermit I had to say "fulfill the vows" to get him to continue.

    Well i started my quests reaaaaally late as i lvl'd fast.. so

    I did all this quest right up to giving the Old Hermit the "strange plant" and then NOTHING.. my journal still says speak to the old hermit.

    Maybe i'll try this reawakeing thing cos i don't remember it telling me i'd finished the 1st part.

    I just finished this quest, started at just 15-no blue line-finished at one bubble (or grape to some of you). You have to have your jewel, at least in the vault as I didn't have mine on me but knew a vault keeper was in Innis Carthaig if I needed to get it. It can't be stressed enough to keep your jewel. Blademaster was yellow to me, set pet on it as I cast and stacked dot. He wasn't hard to kill. You do have to watch were you go as Parth farm isn't far away and there were a couple of mobs that were aggressive and red to me in the forest. I have adolesent pet and have been told not to use bush/tree pets. Hope this helps others.

    My Animist just finished this step of the Quest. Needed to use my controllable pet turret, at lvl 15. I just kept running back through the turret until the pet got Aggro, then started Nuking with steal HP spell. Lost about 3/4 of my HP.

    You need to approach the Blademaster so he calls out to you. Take the key to the Old Hermit. Then do the Reawakening Quest. Forget about this one for a while.

    Then I followed the journal to the letter and did the Reawakening Quest.

    Now on next step of Cad Goddeau and will need to get bigger to work on it. Still only lvl 15 :-)
    Level 28 - Hermit won't talk to me
    # Jul 01 2002 at 1:48 AM Rating: Default

    I am at the part where you challenge the Blademaster by the old hermit. I challenged him, and defeated him easily (being level 28). Nothing dropped though (as he was grey) and the hermit won't talk to me. What am I missing? My quest log still says challenge and kill the blademaster then talk to the hermit? Is there a line I need to say? I offered him the plant and he wouldn't take it either. Please help.
    RE: Hermit won't talk to me
    # Aug 14 2002 at 4:31 AM Rating: Default
    same thing here, 15 druid, and i can't challenge him the way the game wants me to. i've killed him a few times (good money), but never can talk to the hermit.
    anyone know how to do this correctly?
    # Jun 28 2002 at 8:46 AM Rating: Default
    I'm lvl 15 Ment and have just spoken with the Harper in Innis Carthaig. He sent me back to the Hermit and from there to the "Siabras" in Mohar to release a Druid. I also have to release a Druid from the Distorters at a higher lvl. Are these the same? I know not of Siabras in Mohar. Can someone clearify please?
    RE: Athrene
    # Jul 07 2002 at 3:43 PM Rating: Default
    yes, the 2 quests join.
    Siabras have differents names according the region:
    Moher: Moheran
    Lough Derg: Dergan
    Silver Mines: Sheevra
    Shannon: Eriu
    Lough Gur: Gurite
    to be neutral with siabras (except Spectral Siabras), you must kill LOT of Curmudgeons, thats raise your faction with Sabrias :)

    I just did this as level 15 Druid, He droped the Ring of Nature Affinity (lvl 16 Magic Item) give +2 Nature Aff and +3 empathy, he also dropped 8.5s'ish

    Though i'd leave that info for Druids,

    He Conned yellow to me (15) sent pet but it died, i was buffed up with eveything in my list (Nuture is at 10, Regrowth is 10 and Nature Aff is 4) blocked a few of his attack and beat him with about 1/3 health left, didn't notice if he had 2 weapons though, remebered he attacked with sword, but i think he hasa mace hanging around his belt too.

    Any way hope extra info helped

    Cad Goddeou quest
    # Feb 27 2002 at 1:47 PM Rating: Default
    I tried to speak to Terrance, but the only what he said was i am not able to learn about druids (or similar). About the quest he said nothing to me. But in my journal its written that i have to talk with him.
    I tried with my warden char who is now 16. Does anybody know what i have to do?
    RE: Cad Goddeou quest
    # Feb 28 2002 at 8:57 AM Rating: Default
    go to terrance and say "tale of cad goddeau", this should start him talking. hope this helps :)

    Path of Balance
    # Feb 06 2002 at 2:42 AM Rating: Default
    it seems that this quest is available to all the classes from the Path of Balance (BM, Druid & Mentalist, if im not mistaken). i did it with my ment and the BM dropped an Amulet of Energy (lvl 16 item for ments, forgot the stats).

    btw, the BM was armed wit a 2handed weapon, which i think is pretty stupid... on the other hand, i did the quest during the european beta...
    The Reawakening
    # Jan 31 2002 at 12:25 PM Rating: Default
    The obtained quest "The Reawakening" may be done immedeately. Just say "Old Hermits reawakening" (maybe it's sufficient to say "reawakening") to Neasan. He then sends you to his Son, the Harper in Innis Carthaig) to let him tell the background of Old Hermit's reawakening.
    The Harpen wil say something about another story, but that it seems you're interested in a different story. say to him, which story you would like to hear and he will tell. At the end, he sends you back to Old Hermit for that you report him what is to be done. Do so and the quest is done, Hermit sends you to end the first Quest (Cad Goddeau) and come back later to help again.

    Nonetheless, no chance to finish Cad Goddeau before you're approx Level 20 - at 15/16 the Bard in the Siabra-camp refuses to even speak to you (if you make it to him, the siabras conn orange, red and magenta ;-) )

    where is that druid (u said bard, quest log says Druid)? i was told cliffs by Hermit and i can not find him?
    RE: The Reawakening
    # Feb 01 2002 at 10:26 AM Rating: Default
    only saying "reawakening" is not enough, i tried, i think you must say the whole sentence mentioned above.
    RE: The Reawakening
    # Mar 15 2002 at 1:24 AM Rating: Default
    i typed just "reawakening" and it worked...
