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

    Talk to the guy you're supposed to (Loremaster Alain?), show him each of the three items then walk up to stonehenge entrance wearing the collar. There's a better writeup on this site now under Hands of Fate quest.

    RE: Sir Verin??
    # Jan 08 2002 at 4:49 PM Rating: Decent
    Paragraph 2 says: Sir Verin is outside the gates to Swanton Keep in Snowdonia.
    He is really there. Use a map if you dont know where is Swanton Keep.

    This is the first part of the Scout (and also the Theurgist, I believe) Epic quest. Every 5 levels you will return to Lady Nimue. At 25, you will be done with her.

    Scout reward for lv 20 is a neck piece with dex and str stats (I cant remember exactly)

    Scout reward for lv 25 is s sweet new Bow with +dex, +str and +longbow stats. 8.9 DPS I believe.

    The lv 25 part is a bit vague - Nimue tells you to seek out those you have helped before. For those of you who have forgotten, they are the chick (who you killed the Green Witch for) in the tower near the Round Table room (the one guarded by the Sentinels) and the Guard outside Swanton Keep (who you killed the Goblins for at lv 15).

    After 25, you have to visit Loremaster Alain at the Academy in Camelot - he tells you to come back when you are lv 30.

    After you cross the bridge going north, you come to two towers. Head straight East from there. She is up on the side of the hill that will be in front and to the left of you. She summons VERY large skellies, so kill her quick!

    Red Skeleton
    # Jan 04 2002 at 8:43 AM Rating: Decent
    I went to the shaman at 23, easy kill. And when I killed the shaman the red skeleton just disappeared. Not sure if it's always this way, but once you are done reading text, whup the shaman, and may save you some trouble.

    Say Barbarians. It is in your Journal Notes.
    # Dec 28 2001 at 10:34 PM Rating: Default
    I'm a Theurg and I think I finished the Lost Wizards part of this, at least I got mass exp when I talked to Lady Nimue after talking to Olorustos, Eril, Cynwich, and Islia. The problem is I didn't receive any items, nor given any instructions to kill the Green Witch. Also my journal still says the Wizard Lost quest (learn all I can about Lost Wizards etc...).

    Anyone else have this happen, or is it supposed to be this way for Theurgs?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    # Dec 24 2001 at 4:12 AM Rating: Default
    I just sat through an entire 24 hour period in the spot explained in the paragraph labelled 1, and she just wouldn't pop... Am I doing something wrong? Could someone give me a more exact location, someplace to watch from, some reason I'm not having the Lady pop?
    RE: GAH!!
    # Dec 27 2001 at 5:08 AM Rating: Default
    The best way to find the lady is...
    From Adribard's head to the Stone bridge to the west (towards Caer Witrin). When you hit the bridge, don't cross, turn left and follow the water until you see the two islands ahead of you with a bridge connecting them. There are mud golems and water leapers around here (yellow at 15). Kill stuff until it's past 7pm game time and then swim towards the point where the bridge meets the right-hand island. You will see Lady Nimue standing in the water after you have swam out a little way, she cannot be seen from the shore.
    Level 25 Epic
    # Dec 21 2001 at 4:34 PM Rating: Default
    Ok, i have done both 15 epic (riding all over the place) and 20 epic (the shaman), but now im on the 25 epic, and it says "seek those you have helped". Anyone have any idea what this means?
    RE: Level 25 Epic
    # Dec 29 2001 at 10:20 PM Rating: Default
    Can you advise where to find the shaman?
    RE: Level 25 Epic
    # Dec 21 2001 at 10:53 PM Rating: Default
    well in lvl 15 U helped the mageess in camelot with the green witch and the guy in swanton with the tomb. I would seek them out first..(just a thought)
    # Dec 17 2001 at 10:38 AM Rating: Default
    Yay nice quest with great background but why so much travel ?? I ruined myself in horse tickets heh =)
    And also I wished a hally ;) (got full vind set so... :) )
    Bah it's for epic quest anyways :)

    anyone know what the reward for the infiltrator epic quest is ?
    # Dec 13 2001 at 1:52 PM Rating: Default
    By the way, whoever wrote up the walkthrough for this quest was pretty bad with directions. The Lady of the Lake that they described is the one in the Marsh. Also, they said head east from Ulfwych to get to her, but she is way southwest. Talk about messed up! Just thought I'd clarify that for anybody wondering why they keep getting lost by following these directions.
    # Dec 10 2001 at 4:53 PM Rating: Default
    Im now a lvl 21 armsman and i have had the wizard lost, tomes from the goblins and now the shaman sub quests. Travelled??, i know this land backwards now. Still cant complain as the xp has been reasonable along the way. Just wish that i didnt have to sit on a horse for so long but the alternative is run and thats a lot worse.
    # Dec 10 2001 at 10:31 AM Rating: Default
    the reward maybe not, but its the 1st part of who knows how many.

    Quick +2
    Earth resist +8%

    and the note that the lady want to see me if I managed to make Zealot level (20)

    Szunn lvl 18 friar

    P.S. I got 4 bubble xp in 17 from that quest alone (incl. the kills)

    I got the quest at i5, first part talk to hunters si i went to camp first. They mentioned to head south till i get to the lake, i found the lady but she didnt tell me about talking to sir whatshisface, she said to go see the wizard at snow fort yet a guild buddy which was 20, and was with me at the time was told to see sir whatshisface instead.......strange how this quest is so random.
    Crazy Hunt
    # Dec 09 2001 at 12:30 PM Rating: Default
    I just received this quest for the Excalibur, etc... this is a crazy hunt... is the reward worth going all over Albion? I am not sure i would have even come close to completing this quest had I not stopped here at this site for some help... I think I will try it, but I sure hope its worth the time.... I'd like to level rather than run all over...=)
    Shaman Aslis
    # Dec 09 2001 at 11:47 AM Rating: Default
    My level 20 Theurgist solo'd this phase of the quest easily. After reading here about a level 20 giant skeleton being summoned, I was reluctant but decided to see what happened anyway. Here's what happened:

    Shaman Aslis is blue, the named dwarves next to her are grey at 20. I talked to her, went through the dialog and she immediately summoned 2 grey spirits. They and the named dwarves then attacked me (possibly because I cast an AOE stun), so I sprinted back toward the guards by the bridge. Rested up, came back and then sent in pets from extreme range to take out the spirits -- I never saw any giant skeleton. After the greys were cleaned out, Shaman Aslis was a piece of cake. I got the Ebony Collar of the Dead (+3 Strength, Int and Piety, +4% slash resist) plus 83k XP and about 8 silver in loot.

    I went back to Lady Nimue, got more experience (all total over 2 bubbles for the quest) PLUS a duplicate of the necklace of elemental influence you get in the first phase of the quest AND an Elemental Staff of Wonders (+18 to Earth, Cold, and Wind, +6 to Power).

    Don't do like I did, and buy a theurgist staff upgrade before 20. I spent 4g on an ironwood staff, and now I need to find a buyer as the Staff of Wonders is much better.
