DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Per Patch 1.59:
- The quest "Silent Death" has been opened to Savages and Bonedancers. Also, ALL rewards for this quest have been changed to "No Sell".

This is the second in a series of quests. Hunting Party is required (3 times).

Speaking to Bork in Huginfell begins a quest involving a large lizard named Njessi in the lake between Gna Faste and Galplen. If you've never spoken to Bork before he may ask you to go kill some random thing approx. your level. After which he will tell you of a fearsome beast rumored to live in the lake at Gna Faste. He wants you to travel there and kill the beast and bring back its head as proof.

The best place I have found to camp this creature is straight towards the lake from the Gna Faste Hut in which the healer trainer stands outside of. Njessi will travel right past you staying in the water as she does. She conned blue, orange, and yellow to me at level 25 and is a very tough kill for her level. She has a searing heat blast which she uses frequently in the battle. Upon killing her you will rip her head off in a feat of strength. Return to Bork in Huginfel. Bork will ask to see the head but when you give it to him he hands it right back to you along with the 70sp reward. He then offers to buy the head from you. It is very important that if you want a good weapon you say NO to his offer. Saying yes will earn you a lousey 25sp more. If you say no he will then direct you to the Enchanter in town. Speaking to the enchanter she will tell you to head off to some other NPC in the game. Your class determines what NPC you will need to see.

Bork says, "You seem to be string enough to take on a real monster. A bounty issued for a [creature] that is terrorizing the lake near Galplen. Perhaps you have heard of it?"

Bork says, "Well here is all I know. It seems to many of the more adventurous sort of the land have called this creature, [Njessi]."

Bork says, "I agree that's a very strange name for a monster but I did not choose it. The [reward] for slaying thjis foul beast is quite large. That is good for [many have perished] trying to collect it."

Bork says, "Would you be interested in the [bounty]?"

Bork says, "I sent some after the creature just a few hours ago. Would you be interested in the [bounty]?"

Bork says, "The bounty is 70 silver for the head of the creature. What do you think?"

Dialog box: Find Njessi and end her reign of terror.

You have been given the Silent Death quest.

Bork says, "Well you are a brave soul. The creature can be found in the darkest depths of the Myrkwood lake. Good fortune on your jouirney and I really hope to see you again, my friend."

[Step #1] Travel to the lake in Myrkwood and slay Njessi.
(Note: as of patch 1.83 Njessi can be found roaming the bottom of the lake in the same area as before. May need a water breathing potion pot to get her.)

You receive Njessi's head from Njessi!
You get 250,000 experience points.

You pull the creature's head from the corpse in a display of strength.

[Step #2] Return to Bork in Huginfell and speak with him.

Bork looks up with a very surprised look on his face.

Bork says, "You have returned. Amazing! Did you bring anything of Njessi back?"

You give Bork Njessi's head.

Bork says, "The god themselves must be watching you! You have brought back the creatures head. Here is your reward. I know of something you can do with [this head]."

You are awarded 70 silver and some copper!

You receive Njessi's head from Bork!

Bork says, "I have heard that Raker, the town enchanter, has been looking for one. Perhaps he can do something with it. You should do talk with him."

[Step #4] Find Raker in Huginfell and see if the head can be crafted into anything.

Raker says, "Greetings. Bork said you miught be coming by. I have heard tales of your travels as word spreads quickly around these parts. Please give me the skull so I can take a look at it."

You give Njessi's head to Raker.

Raker turns the skull over in his hands, looking closely at it, before returning it to you.

You receive Njessi's head from Raker!

Raker says, "I have an interesting idea. I believe that a magic staff can be crafted by driving slivers of skull bone deep into hardened wood. Only Gord in Galplen could make one of those. You must journey there and meet with him. He will be able to help you."

[Step #5] Journey to Galplen and speak with Gord the smith. He will be able to craft you the staff you desire.

Gord says, "I can make a staff that you will be able to use. The head is starting to rot though so I must start now. Would you like me to [make one] or [not]?"

Do not click not, you will only get some silver and will not get a weapon made for you.

[Step #6] Continue talking to the crafter to get your weapon.

Gord says, "Now these are very powerful staffs. You will be expected to uphold the traditions of all the Spiritmasters that have come before you. I will give you one of the staffs that I have already prepared. That way you din't have to wait."

You receive a Njessi Staff of Pure Thought from Gord!

Gord says, "Here is your staff. Now I expect you to spread the word and tell others that I can create these staffs. Just be sure and tell your friends to bring one of the Njessi heads so I can craft a new staff for the next person. May Hel guide your hand in battle."

You have finished the Silent Death quest.

Location of Njessie

For all the newbies, the monster is in the lake between Galplen and Gna Fauste. You actually have to be underwater to find the rotten thing (it looks like a big lizard). Check /keyboard to find what keys to use for down and up. Mine were what came standard "Z" for down, and "Spacebar" for up. You may also need to adjust the camera angle, because Njessie roams the lake instead of staying in one place. You have to look, but patrol the waters East of Gna Fauste to the north and south.

If you want to skip the lvl 12 kill tasks, just say "Njessie" to Bork and he will give you the quest.

Update for Step #4+

As a -Skald-, Spec'd in Axes, Raker sent me to Ft Atla with the skull to Eindridi to have him craft my weapon. He had options for Sword, Axe and Hammer.

I recieved the 2 Handed Axe as listed above in the quest list.

It is possible it's different 'Smith' for all the classes?
Quest is available to Savages

Savage Confirmed

This quest CAN NOT be completed by the Savage class!

I have tried from levels 20-24 to talk to Bork for this quest but after the Hunting Quest. He will not tell me anymore or even talk to me.

Sucks to be us Savages...
Savage Do-able?

I'm a 24 Savage, but Bork hasn't mentioned the quest. Any other Savage done this, and if so, was it a H2H weapon you got as a reward?
Min level 22

I got this quest as a 22 shaman. So the minimum level is not actually 23.
Pretty easy

I am a lvl 23 hunter. I tried twice. The first time I ran after blowing my critical shot. The second time I had 3/4 of my life after killing her. I did about 480 and I had a blue dark hound for a pet, so prob another 70 or so from him, I only got 1 shot after my CS because I was afraid she'd swim out of range and so didnt wait for max range. Njessi was yellow to me.
choosing yes or no

note to self: DO NOT PICK [NOT]. You will only receive something like 15 silver. MEAGER!! i accidently clicked on [NOT] and totally regret it! always ask to [make one]. the items you get from these quests are hella rare to come by. again, i regret clicking on [not].
