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 Part I of an epic quest, and it includes nesting quests: (The nested quests included in this one are Wizard Lost and Barbaric Tales.)

Per Patch 1.53:
Legend of the Lake: We have made some changes to the 15th level portion of this quest in an attempt to bring it up to the level of other quests within the realm. The main change is the addition of two sub-quests to complement the existing "Barbaric Tales" and "Wizard Lost". Players who encounter this step of the quest will be given the option to perform two of the possible four sub-quests. Please note that these changes will not affect players that have already performed this section of the quest.
One of these new quests is Lisreen's Plight.

1. Talk to your trainer. He will tell you that they need to find Excaliber.

2.The first step is to locate the Lady of the Lake. Your journal notes will tell you she can be found at night, either in Snowdonia, Camp. Forest, or the Avalon Marsh.

Through a little research you will find out her name is Lady Nimue. I found her in the lake southeast of Caer Witrin. To get there from Caer Witrin, follow the path leading towards Adribard's Retreat (To the east) and you shall come to a dark grey stone bridge. Do not cross the bridge, instead, turn right along the shoreline and follow it. You shall see a large playground-looking fort, which is actually full of bogmen. She is in between two islands, one with the playground, the other with a bridge connected to the playground island. Swim towards the point where the bridge meets the right-hand island. loc=27631,45026 You will see Lady Nimue standing in the water after you have swam out a little way, she cannot be seen from the shore. She pops from 7pm-5am. (Lady Nimue can be found in Campa Forest during the day at 8380, 47321, and Avalon Marsh during night at 27631, 45026.)

She will then give you a quest called Wizard Lost, something about the wizard Merlin and the Wisdom of Legends, complete it then continue with Legend of the Lake.

3. She will tell you something about the Tome of Legends, and Sir Verin. This is the beginning of a mini-quest called Barbaric Tales.

You can ONLY DO TWO of the four sub-quests, be careful which ones you choose. But it has been said that you actually can do all 4 subquests. You only have to do 2 of them through Nimue.

4. After you complete the two subquests, go visit the mobs that give out the other two quests and you'll be able to do them.

  • Soft Leather Travelers Leggings -- Friar

  • Sleeves of the Stoic -- Armsman

  • Necklace of Elemental Influence -- Theurgist

  • Gauntlets of Archery -- Scout

  • Rewards:
      Sleeves of the Stoic
      Soft Leather Traveler's Leggings
      Gauntlets of Archery
      Necklace of Elemental Influence

    bullsh*t quest

    Dear hecaxap

    A quick question for you how do you know the quest is bullsh*t if you cannot even be bothered to go and try it? perhap's your judgement's would be better served if you actualley did the quest then passed on what knowledge you had rather than just assuming.

    enjoy the quest's and the game :-)

    Ulfwag is not southwest of snowdonia....that leads to the same place Grilk is!!! where is ulfwag?!?!?!?

    Mystic Ulfwag is in the goblin ring fort west of Snowdonia Station. Best way to yank him out without having to slaugter the whole camp is to appraoch from the hill behind the fort. He'll aggro through the wall. I took him out quite easily with my lv 14 friar.

    I got the armsman epic quest at 15 but havent done it yet. I am now 20th level, and my question is can I still do the first part of the quest? Or did I just really mess myself up and now i cant do it?

    on my wizard lost part I am send to snowdonia fortress, to ask Cynwik the Wizard about Merlin.
    After a brief conversation he SHOULD send me to Magess Islia. Well - he DOESNT! I am stuck.
    I have already completed the Barbaric tale-part

    any help or idea?

    # Mar 28 2002 at 11:24 PM Rating: Decent
    for me I was sent to Avalon Marsh (Scribe Eril or something like that, he's in Adribard's Retreat), Camp Forest (Orlostrus in Lethantis), THEN to Islia in Merlins Tower (for those that don't know...that is in Camelot).
    For Islia you actually have to say something else other then just 'Merlin' to continue. I said something along the lines of 'Orlostrus (or however you spell his name...) said Merlin is in a different plane of existance'. Hope that helps!

    This is the beginning of the "epic" quest for Armsmen. You automatically get it when you go to train when you hit 15. Not sure how others get it though.

    Theurg reward
    # Feb 07 2002 at 10:48 AM Rating: Default
    For all the running around you have to do for this quest, it's not worth it to get a necklace that adds +1 to all yer magickes, i.e. earth, refrig, and wind.

    It took me about 4-5 hours to complete it, what with running to swanton keep back to marsh, to snow, to marsh...I think I had to visit nimue three times, and Verin two or three. In between that, getting killed trying to get that goblin at the outpost on the way to Barfog..Ulafgrat the Mystic...He is deep inside the outpost, and everyone comes to his aid, thus killin' off all the pets you threw at him, then they all come after YOU *grins*

    The other one was easy by Tepok's...Grillk fell fast, and I didn't stay around to loot, just took off with the tome.

    I had already had a necklace of brilliance which gave me BETTER stats than the one rewarded.

    I would say do it, so you can go on to your next epic at 20, but it's really not worth all the effort.
    RE: Theurg reward
    # Mar 28 2002 at 11:32 AM Rating: Default
    In order not to run into the middle of the camp, you can ambush Ulfgrat from the back wall of the camp.
    There are some rocks forming a stair like structure.

    Wizards Lost isn't the second quest. You have to do Wizards lost to be able to do the Barbarian quest, and finish LoLI.
    Something wrong
    # Feb 03 2002 at 9:37 PM Rating: Default
    My journal says "Step #3 Find out all you can about Merlin. Throgh his knowledge fate will blah blah Wisdom. What is wrong with this. Nimue doesn't say more and when I say barabians or barbaric to SirVerin nothing happens?
    # Feb 03 2002 at 4:29 PM Rating: Default
    Say "barbarians" to him

    Level 15 Friar Reward
    # Jan 27 2002 at 8:33 PM Rating: Default
    I completed the level 15 part of the quest and received the Friar's reward, soft leather traveller's leggins. However, when I wear the leggins, I receive a message that says the magic of the leggins does not work on me. Is this normal? This quest was worth alot of experience but, I'm disappointed in the item I received.
    Can anyone elaborate on this?

    How does a paladin start this quest?
    Theurgist Reward
    # Jan 23 2002 at 10:44 PM Rating: Default
    I just completed the first part of the epic as a 15th theurgist. While the order was different, all the steps were the same as listed here. The only part that I had a problem with was killing Grilk. He is a caster and brings EVERYTHING with him when you attack. The reward I got was a necklace that adds +1 to all spell skill levels. A lot of traveling but not a bad reward.

    Level 25 portion of the Epic Quest
    # Jan 23 2002 at 5:27 AM Rating: Default
    At lvl 25 you are asked to find those who have helped you

    Return to Sir Verin at Swanton Keep to receive a tome

    Return to Magess Isla at Merlin's Tower in Camelot to receive scrolls

    Return to Lady Neume to receive a GREAT Breastplate

    Do NOT Miss this one!! so easy and the reward is great!

    Put the 3 quest pieces (collar of the dead, tome and scrolls) in your vault until you reach level 30 and do the next segment of this epic quest ;)

    Good luck !

    At level 20 you are given instructions by the Lady to find a shaman residing in the black mountains

    Bring a group or at the least a healer

    1) go to the Twin Bridges and cross them

    2) turn right and begin running (water will be on your right)

    3) there is a hill on your left which you will see immediately as you begin running - angle over to it and climb it slowly

    4) on the first ledge of that hill will be a group of dwarves with a shaman standing beside the center circle of stones

    5) go up and talk to her -- she's not friendly and will tell you so

    6) as soon as you complete reading her text she will attack and magically produce Giant Skeletons (2) A centurion and a couple of other things that I can't remember -- it was a real shock ;) they were green and blue to me (lvl 25)

    7) Kill the Shaman and her cronnies and pick up the bag of dropped goodies. A collar of the dead dropped -- still can't figure out what it does for me - it's a 27 level magic item but doesn't tell you what it does when you click shift-i

    8 return to lady Nemue for your reward - i received plate leggings.

    Good luck ;)

    Lady Nimue
    # Jan 16 2002 at 2:01 AM Rating: Default
    There are several places that Lady Nimue can spawn but once you find her in a place you will always be able to find her there (assuming the time is right for her to be awake). One of her spawn locations is on the west side of the small lake that is at the south end of the river from Camp station. She spawns between the island and the western shore of the lake right around 7pm or so.
