Bristle does wanter SouthWest of mBeo. He wanders around the small hills just past the short cirle of rocks with the wolves, I found him just in the South woods completly over the first, tallest hill beyond the rocks.
I too also tried the 'right-click'on NPC's when prompted to give the head and then the bag to their respective NPC's. Worked for me as well, so now I still have the head, the remains, and the bag. It must be a bug in the quest, though I have never tried that with any other quest before.

I did this quest on mordred ( yes, hte pvp server )... i haven't tested this little find on Merlin yet, but when i did it, i spent a long time looking for bristle, found him, then went to reidie.... I talked to her, and when she prompted me for the head, i merely right clicked on here again... Voila, the quest continued without me giving her the item, and i still had the head... Intrigued, i did the same thing with the bag ( still had it in my invo ) I had to log shortly after that, and such a thing hasn't happened since... like i said, i am still trying this again, if anyone has had this happen, i'd like to know if it was just a bug i had for a log.

to make bristle pop simply kill wug. worked for me several times now. wug dead, immediate pop of bristle.
works the other way round too btw. bristle dies, wug pops.

? Eruven wont talk to me
# Feb 23 2002 at 9:01 AM Rating: Default
I have done Little Wind and wear the Grass Bracelet. The only quest I have hanging is Mild Deception and I am a 14th Season Ranger. Why won't Eruven talk to me? I even tried "assitant."

Thanks for any help.

Just like to point out that Bristle is SOUTHwest of Tir na mBeo.
RE: Bristle
# Jan 12 2002 at 2:44 AM Rating: Default
Yep, and much more south than west. if you look south from mBeo you will see a hill, which is where Bistle spawns. I think Mythic may need to watch some Sesame Street in order to master the concepts of near, far and direction.

A druid doing Lambent quests in EQ? Only bards can wear Lambent! He was probably twinking an alt.

heh think your talking about the wrong game

I completed this quest and got Bristle's Fang, and I'm a Druid. Now, someone please explain to me: what good is a piercing weapon to a Druid? Can't even use the damn thing, and nobody wants to buy it off me.

# Dec 11 2001 at 3:26 AM Rating: Default
As a Blademaster I would love to have 2 or 3 of these. I am sure there is a some empathy item quest I could do and trade you for your bristle.
RE: Stupid
# Dec 11 2001 at 2:22 AM Rating: Default
I did the full lambent armor with my druid in EQ and you know what ? My druid was not able to wear lambent plate ...

Give this fang to a young ranger/nightshade of your realm and enjoy the questing engine.
eruven's talk
# Dec 02 2001 at 3:04 AM Rating: Default
What you have to do is type the word he's trying to say (can't remember what it was -- assistant i think -- but the correct word is obvious) and it runs along.

Got this and finished it on 1 Dec as a 13 ranger; don't think it's broken. You may have to have helped Reidie before, because as soon as i did eruvan started saying "i see you've helped reidie, come back when your bigger"
# Dec 01 2001 at 7:19 PM Rating: Default
The quest is not working, its been broke for two weeks.. maybe someday it will get fixed...Eruven does not complete his talk gets stuck in middle.
RE: eruven
# Dec 02 2001 at 2:51 AM Rating: Default
Actually, you can still get the quest from him.
Simply type "an assistant" (without the quotes). Since clicking on the words in the brackets of a quest is the same as typing it out, if clicking doesn't work, try saying what's the brackets or /whisper it.

Ive talked to eruven he talks to me for a while then stops he wont give me quest i did lil wind quest then i went to reidie all the way down in tirnmBeo but she wont even talk to me ! know what i missed?

RE: kweef
# Dec 13 2001 at 9:38 AM Rating: Default
You have to talk to Eruven, Reidie does not start the quest.
RE: kweef
# Dec 12 2001 at 10:51 AM Rating: Default
I am having the same problem. I will try later while I have the bracelet although that would be strabge.
# Nov 23 2001 at 2:34 PM Rating: Default

I've just finished it. This weapon is yellow at 15 and +2 piercing is nice when I usually put every skill points in Stealth and Critical.

Something is nice also, if you equiped it in the 2Hand slot (on your back) it still gives +2 Piercing. I know a dagger in the back is not that nice but +2 piercing is :)

As Talus said, you need to complete lil'wind quest first, thanks a lot for that.
Nice item but...
# Nov 23 2001 at 8:04 AM Rating: Default
Step #4 Give Head to Reidie

No way!

Connacht is not a town but area, right? So where in the Connacht area is Eruven?

Eruven can be found just over the bridge in Connacht - Follow the road N - NE out of Ardee - right after the bidge is a small town with merchants - he is outside the first building.

I killed bristle for fun yesterday. I found him right behind mBeo. There is a field of rocks in between mBeo and the Sibra stone circle. I found him by the rock field.

I could not locate Bristle for the life of me. Any better description on where to find him? Is there a certain time to look?
