DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Gwaell, in Audliten, can make you a Tomte Jerkin if you bring her 3 tomte bracers, which are dropped by tomtes in the camp in East Svealand.

Gwaell says, "Do you have [a moment]?"

Gwaell says, I've notived you do not have one of my [tomte jerkins] on you."

Gwaell says, "I have learned how to craft them from a few [tomte bracers]."

Gwaell says, "Yes, the jerkin requires a total of three tomte bracers in order to have enough material to create. You show interest in this object. Would you like me to [craft one] for you?"

Gwaell says, "Very well then, find three of these bracers and return them to me."

Bracers only drop from Tomte thugs and you can still do this quest if the thugs are gray.

Your reward is a Tomte Jerkin

I got this quest like everyone else at level 5. I then became a berserker and went to the camp at level 7. The camps are still hard at 7 never mind 5 but i eventually got three bracers and headed back to Gwaell. She wont accept the bracers and doesnt talk to me because I have chosen my path (berserker). If your going to do this quest, dont choose a path first cause it doesn't work. What a waste of time.

Unfortunately, when you choose a career path, your new trainer deletes all quests you have not completed yet. So either start this after you choose your path, or finish it before you do.

I just got my Tomte Jerkin last night. Soloed as a Level 5 Kobold Shaman, (yes, I had already chosen my career path, and also my craft) before starting this quest. I did speak to Gwael first before going to the Tomte camp, and she offered to make the Jerkin for me at that time, so this may be part of the secret. I waited untill I had all 3 bracers (only the Thugs drop them) before going back to her, and had no problem geting the Jerkin.
Today, I find out that there have been new items added (as of 22Mar) ... Tomte leggings, sleeves, etc that are monster drops .. quess they were added after my kills as later on in this morning I joined a group and went back after more Tomtes .. but none dropped any armor!

Tomte Jerkin is made by Gwaell. Tomte armor drops in Nisse's Lair, not that Tomte camp. AND it does say in the description..."Bracers only drop from Tomte thugs and you can still do this quest if the thugs are gray."
got the jerkin

...just finished the jerkin quest. Had to kill about 10 thugs to get 3 bracers . HAd a few deaths as a lvl 5 thane , also i went back to gwaell after each death to "reup" the mission (just in case ). Tomte camp is found by turning left (while facing gwaell) and head down road , cross bridge and you'll see tent camps down on the left side of road (seen no thugs there ), but the tower and building on the rightside is where the thugs spawned. Took about 2 hours of hanging around to complete this , nice item though , good luck
Some info...

If a monster cons gray to you, they will not drop loot when you kill them. So, if you're that high in level, no bracers for you.

This is NOT a quest that appears in your journal. It's like the bandit ears quest in gets the info, you does the tasks.
RE: Some info...
# Feb 23 2002 at 6:43 PM Rating: Default
Not true for Quest monsters. If you have the quest, the needed item WILL drop from grey monsters. You won't get any NORMAL loot, or xp, but the quest item will be in your inventory after the kill. I believe for many quests, the upper level you can GET the quest is after those monsters have gone grey to you, so I can see where this came from. FYI, I have only gotten bracers from tomte thugs, which makes sense for a lvl 5 quest. Has anyone gotten bracers from the higher tomtes?
RE: Some info...
# Feb 24 2002 at 8:30 AM Rating: Default
That's true for normal quests, but Tomte Bracers drop like normal loot, not quest loot. And not every time. I had to kill 6 or 7 thugs to get the three bracers, and I was chased off once by a pillager and had to sneak back to get the dropped bracer before it disapperaed.

Wrong zone
# Jan 27 2002 at 12:15 AM Rating: Decent
Gwaell is in Audliten, which is in East Svealand, not West.
Poss reason
# Jan 22 2002 at 7:12 PM Rating: Default
I also cannot get Gwaell to give me the jerkin in exchange for the bracers
I think possibly the reason is this:
Its not a proper quest--no accept/decline its more like a task
If u get killed getting the bracers (as i did) the task is cancelled--hence she wont accept the bracers

The jerkin also adds to your hits, +9 I believe.

Unless this has been fixed in the recent patches, it appears to be bugged now. The first time I spoke to her, she gave me the dialogue about me not having the jerkin and bringing her the bracers, etc... I went and killed Thugs till I got the bracers and returned to her, but she would no longer talk to me, and wouldnt take the bracers :( btw, I was a lvl 6 Thane at the time
RE: Bugged?
# Dec 24 2001 at 1:40 PM Rating: Default
I don't get this as an actual quest -- she just tells me to get three bracers and bring them back, I don't have the accept/decline option. And none of the thugs I've killed so far have had any bracers (they con green to me). I'm I too high a level (7) to do this?
# Dec 14 2001 at 3:06 AM Rating: Default
could any1 plz tell me how can i convert the jerkin to a cloth armour???
ill be thankful.
Drops off Thugs

The bracers that you are looking for are dropped off of the thugs only, which are the lesser con of all tomte's. I did this quest with my Kobold Spiritmaster of level 7 and had no trouble at all getting the quest or killing most tomte's. The Tomte Jerkin, that Gweall gives you in return for the bracers, if right clicked then shift+d releases its magical component which increases your hit points.

***edit: At the time of this post this is what I was told. That WAS my first char and my first week in DAoC. I was trying to be helpful from the information I was given, obviously someone was trying to play me. So disreguard the information about the shift+d, as I was not aware at that time. Thanks.

Just so any other new players know, if you right click an item, type Shift-I to see the properties of it.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 04 2002 at 8:35 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Rather pathetic that an ADMIN would post crap like that.

This guy is an idiot. If you are a newbie, you need to know that Shift-D will DELETE the item. Darkflame forgot that a confirmation text window will appear and will ask you if you want to drop the item (yes or no)
# Dec 04 2001 at 12:20 PM Rating: Default
I am lvl 8 spent 3 hours killing skirm and plunderers and didnt get one dropped bracer. Thugs are grey to me, are they the only ones that drop the bracers?

New patch gives a Tunic with same stats for those that can only wear cloth. Havent tried it yet but am going to do quest when i get in game. Suposidly you can also exchange the previous item for a cloth item with originating npc.

So you can't get the quest until level 5 but if you choose your career when you hit 5 like your supposed to, you can't get the reward. Not to mention how hard the Tomte camps are for level 5 characters who haven't chosen a profession yet.

Conclusion: This quest is dumb.
I talked to a CSR
# Nov 20 2001 at 3:43 PM Rating: Default
I put in an appeal about this quest when I was level 5 and couldnt turn in the bracers. By the time they answered my appeal I was level 13 so the info was useless to me, but hopefully this help other people get their armor. The CSR said that you have to do this quest before you choose your profession. Apparently its a feature not a bug because the CSR did say they were working on fixing it, but not that you should be able to do it after you have chosen a profession. In fact, they are "fixing" it so that Gwaell will not even talk to you or give you the quest once you have chosen a profession.

I am now a 7th level dwarf healer and i got 3 bracers of thugs (green to me) and same problem she won't speak to me now nor give me the jerkin.

There are 2 locations of Tomte-Go over the bridge east of the traders and continue along the road-on the right you will see a watchtower and further down on the left is a camp.

I basically drew the thugs away a safe distance to kill so they didnt call for help.

Maybe this is a bugged quest-is a bit frustrating to do the hard yards with no reward.
Same Problem
# Nov 17 2001 at 12:26 PM Rating: Default
Any ideas? I got the quest/task from Gwaell as a lvl 5 hunter. Went and killed the thugs and got my 3 bracers. Now she won't talk to me or take the bracers. I dropped the bracers on the ground and she would then talk to me and give me the quest until I picked them up again. Then nothing. Bug? They'll probably fix it as soon as I outlevel the tunic. sigh
She refuses to talk now...

When I hit 6th level with my Troll Skald, I spoke to Gwaell, and she told me to get the three bracers. I went and picked off about 12 thugs, got my three bracers and went back to her. Now she won't speak to me at all, and if I try to give her the bracers, she refuses them. What the...? Any suggestions?
Does'nt want those...
# Nov 13 2001 at 9:53 PM Rating: Default
I can get Gwaell to tell me to return 3 bracers to her, but when I give them to her, she says she does'nt want them. Is it because I'm a troll shaman?
Did it just now...
# Nov 10 2001 at 1:55 AM Rating: Default
...and I'm a level 6 Thane. Best way to get bracers is to pick off solo thugs (blue to me) and drag them a long way away so they cant call for help (they can if nearer). The bracers drop about 1 in 8. Just give them to Gweall and she hands over the jerkin (check for her positive response to the first one though). It does indeed give + to hp. One other thing, out of the dozens I killed 2 other drops occurred - a +2dex belt and +2dex boots...

Working up a newbie Skald and new to Midgard and was wondering about where the Tomte camp is. Haven't explored all of the zone yet but haven't run across them yet and am at about the level to get the jerkin.
# Oct 29 2001 at 5:00 PM Rating: Good
ask her about the tomtes once, leave the chat box, click her again and ask about tomtes again. she will have a different script, urging you to get the bracers and offering the tunic for them.

This quest does not register as a quest in your journal.
