DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Per Patch 1.76:
- The Creatures of Myrkwood - All three versions of this quest will now fit in with the updated monster levels. Several kills needed for these quests have been relocated or changed to more appropriate level monsters.
(New information is unknown at the moment, if you know this information and wish to share it, post below or send it in and I'll add it to the quest write up.)

1. I received this quest as a 20th level Thane when I spoke to Atzar in Gna Faste. He told me to go talk to Dunfjall in Nalliten.

Atzar says, "Well, hello there. How are you enjoying Myrkwood? It's a nice place, if you can get along with the creatures that live here. Unfortunately, I can only get one group [to leave me alone] and that's the werewolves."

Atzar says, "I have a friend, Dunfjall, who is an expert at getting people to like him. He used to be a skald and he knows how to charm people. Well, he's spent some time studyingf the arachites, werewolves, and svartalfs and knows all their little secrets. He helped me with my werewolf problem. You know , he could probably [give you a hand] with one of those groups, if you're interested. The thing is, you can only improve your status with one group."

Atzar says, "It would take a little work on your part, but if you're [up to the challenge], I'm sure that Dunfjall would help you. What do you say?"

Dialog box: Would you like to improve your relations with a group of Myrkwood?

You have been given the The Creatures of Myrkwood quest.

Atzar says, "Excellent! I think it will really be worth your time to do what Dunfjall tell you. Now, I guess you need to know where to find him. He's been hiding out in Nalliten because he's kind of on the outs with the blodfelags right now. He's in Nalliten, hiding under the boats. When you see him, tell him that Atzar sent you and he'll be very helpful! Good luck!"

[Step #1] Seek out Dunfjall in Nalliten. He is hiding under the boats. When he asks, tell him [Atzar] sent you.

2. Dunfjall is under the boats. Loc 51k, 34k on the beach. Dunfjall talked about the three factions of Werewolves, Arachites, and Svartalfs, and how you could work them against each other. He asked which faction of those three I would like to improve.

Dunfjall says, "Yeah? What do you want?"

You say, "Atzar sent me."

Dunfjall says, "Oh, you know Atzar? He's a nice gu. He was having a problem with the werewolves and I helped him out. Is that why he sent you here? You have [a problem] with some of the creatures of the forest?"

Dunfjall says, "That happens a lot around here. People get into trouble with the svartalfs and they can't get out of it without some help. I'm that help. I know all their secrets, plus those of the arachites and werewolves. Unfortunately, if I'm popular with one group, the other two groups usually hate me until I do something for them. Then the first group hates me again. It's a never-ending cycle. One day I'll figure out how to get in good with all three groups, but until then, I'll take them one at a time. Now, it's [decision time] for you."

Dunfjall says, "Like I said, I don't know how to become friendly with all three groups. What you do may not make you friendly, but it will help you get close to that goal. I will also warn you now, sometimes you may need a partner to help you do the things I ask. So now, you must choose which group you want to improve your standings with. Will it be the [werewolves], the [svartalfs], or the [arachites]? Choose wisely for you may not change your mind, nor may you work with me again. I cannot reveal all my secrets to you or I would lose my place with all three groups! Now, choose."

After choosing, go to your respective quest link.

This is not a cross realm quest for Mordred and Gaharis servers. Midgard classes only.

For some reason, this site has nothing on the "Helping the Arachites" quest. That one gives a bracer suitable for Runemaster, Bonedancer, Spiritmaster.

Silk Cuff
Power 2
Piety 3
Thrust 2%
Slash 4%

Aye, I also chose to help the arachites. As a 22 troll Thane I was tasked to kill a shrieking willow for an axe handle, followed by a dark hound for its tooth. Both are found in Myrkwood, along the SE shore of the lake, which is south of the werewolf fortress of Askheim. Stand in location 25k,57k and you will have both in sight (trees to you W, hounds to your E). Both conned blue.
Upon returning these items to Dunfjall, he tasked me with killing the svartalf sorceress Te'Delna. I found her in position 61k,60k-just south of the svartalf camp in the SE corner of Myrkwood. She conned yellow and brought along a green svartalf sorcerer.
I returned her blood to Dunfjall and was told to meet with the arachite Thraxia by the skull post just across the bone bridge near Nallitan. Thraxia appears from 8am-4pm (game time) every day, right next to the post. In return for the axe Dunfjall made for her, she gave me :
Silver Web Bracer, lvl 21 item, +1 Parry, +1 Axe, +3 Strength, 4% slash resist.
bug in arachite faction
# Mar 10 2003 at 9:06 AM Rating: Decent
In the german version seems to be a bug.
Dunfjall don't talk to me anymore. He says:
(translation) "So, do we wanna start with [this adventure]?"

But here it ends and there seems to be no way, that he goes on talking.

Could anybody help me please.

u dont get any problems during the Coplin's Spirit quest

"Tradande says, "I give unto you the crest, but you must... NO! Run! Evil has descended upon us! I shall hold them off as long as I can!"

Run your butt off, for several werewolf types that conned purple to me attacked me. They cast root, so once you are rooted, you are a goner. "

Are any of the bracer versions useful for a Runemaster (Svartalf - melee, Arachite - healer)
Priestess Araxia
# Jun 02 2002 at 2:03 AM Rating: Default
I am a 23rd level Skald, and have almost completed this quest. Unfortunately, I cannot find this Priestess Araxia, who supposedly spawns near the shore if the lake NW of the ww fort (Askheim). Also, I believe the 'reward' for this is a hammer, which will be completely useless to me. Just an FYI if any skalds choose to help the svartlovs out.

I just completed this quest as a Skald. I went with werewolf faction and received a bracer equivalent to the Svartsolv Bracer.

Priestess Araxia IS by the lake, NW of the Askheim. Follow the lake from Askheim until you enter a narrow pass between the hillside and the lake. She is at the base of the hillside on your left along with a friend.
Where is Atzar?

He isn't anywhere in Gna Faste - I went to the top of the guard tower and there was a guy but with a different name and he wouldn't speak to me.

Fire Ants and Rabid Sveawolf

Hello all.

I completed this quest earlier today. I went with the Svartalf version of this quest (I wanted that bracer bad). Found the NPCs easily and followed the directions well. However when it came time to gather the components for the quest Dunfjall asked me to bring him the antenae of a Fire Ant Scavenger from Muspelheim and the Skull of a Rabid Sveawolf from West Svealand. The part about killing the werewolf Fasolt to get his blood was the same though. I can only guess that Dunfjall sends people out to find "spider" and "wolf" type parts for his formula, so don't be surprised if you are asked to get something other than what was listed here. If you are going to take on this quest be prepared to go just about anywhere.

Good hunting...

Great as I read this you all took helping the Svartalfs, woop's i took helping the werewolves and I can't find anything on here about it. Not sure now this was right choice. I don't even know Skona Ravine at all. Every time I go alone to try to look some kind of flower the mountians get me so truned around I get so lost that I just get into fight with Purple to die and go back to Galplen. If anyone knows there way around and wants to help me with this I say "Thank You very Much" I know the northren end better and maybe I can help you.

I just did the quest on werewolf faction. I never had to enter Skona Ravine.
# May 17 2002 at 10:47 PM Rating: Default
NO u have to climb those stone steps and they have holes in them so becareful. I died on the steps falling through the crack. Talk about feeling stupid. They were really hard to climb but as many times as u have to go up and down there u will get good at it.
RE: jbwebejammin
# Jun 04 2002 at 11:59 AM Rating: Default
Those steps...I even went very slowly coming back down them. I fell right THROUGH the steps nearly all the way to the bottom, but only sustained 56% damage.

Helping the Svartalfs
# May 10 2002 at 8:15 AM Rating: Default
I'm currently on this quest, struggling with the helping the svartalfs sub-quest. I'm trying to fing Pristess Araxia who is meant to be on the lakeshore south west of askheim. I've circled the whole lake in day and sightings. I haven't been able to find any info on priestess araxia on any camelot sites either. Has anyone spotted this arachite on any of their journeys???

Priestess Araxia??
# May 12 2002 at 1:27 AM Rating: Default
Funny, I just ran across her not 3 minutes before reading your post...:-)

Anyway, to get to where I saw her, go north of the Werewolf fortress and south of the lake. That is, go between the lake and the fort. Keep on the shore of the lake. Then, about 15 seconds or so before you cross into Skona Ravine, you'll be where I saw her. She was orange to me at 18, and she had a green escort with her.
RE: Helping the Svartalfs
# May 10 2002 at 1:26 PM Rating: Default
She is usually near the water but sometimes wanders a bit, and usually has a guard with her, but he is lower level than she. Also the Great Mother Tingler spawns near there too.
# May 09 2002 at 3:31 PM Rating: Default
Where in Gna Faste can I find Atznar? I've looked everywhere he is nowhere to be found. I play on a European Server, maybe he is named differently here...
RE: Atzar
# May 10 2002 at 5:00 PM Rating: Default
Having problem as well to find Atzar. He's NOT in the tower as far as I can see. Playing on a European server as well so maybe there is a local bug?
