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.

    Sir Verin quest

    I can't get Sir Verin to give quest. I chose him from Nimue and he shows up in my journal, but no dice. I'm level 20, am I too high for him to give me a quest?

    does any one know the correct loc of vagdush? i cant seem to find him.
    Vagdush LOC
    # Jul 09 2004 at 10:29 AM Rating: Good
    The co-ordinates listed for Vagdush have been incorrect, he can actually be found on the opposite side of the road NE of that location at 3940, 35580 amongst a group of wood ogre seers.

    Also, Lady Nimue appears at two locations, one during day and the other night; no point sitting around waiting for her to reappear at one spot as it is quicker to go to the second. She can be found in Campa Forest during the day at 8380, 47321, and Avalon Marsh during night at 27631, 45026.

    I have got the three scrolls from the draconians that I had to but when I try and get the "watery spirit from a sodden corpse" that my journal says or the MOB this web site says, I do not get the spirit I need to complete the quest. I have killed several of every "dead" soaked thing around the town. I am stumped. I was given this quest to do while trying to get the shards for the Lady of the Lake

    First, I suggest that you do this quest at lvl 17. Or, if you do it at lvl 15, breing a friend.
    I did this quest with my lvl 19 Theurgist.

    First part of the quest:
    1) talk to your trainer in Camelot city.

    2) talk to Lady Nimue at loc 8365, 47290 in Campacorentin Forest.
    She is on the shore of the river, across from the island. Note: your journal tells you that Lady Nimue only appears at night but for me it was the opposite, she was there during the day.

    She will give you 4 possible sub-quest and you must choose 2. I chose the 'Locate the Shard of Sequence' quest because it gives you an extra magical item (a ring) for my first quest. Second, I chose the 'Assist Sir Verin' quest because it is not too long too acconmplish.

    Locate the Shard of Sequence quest:
    3) (Be sure you chose this quest from Lady Nimue)talk to Erstal Furlan at loc 37300, 18240 in Avalon Marsh (he is inside the Outland Wharf).

    4) kill the mud golem named Dooben at loc 15800, 48650 in Avalon Marsh. He does roam along the shore of a lake. He was green to me (at lvl 19). You will receive a shard of sequence.

    5) return to Erstal Furlan.

    6) kill the ogre named Vagdush at loc 3200, 44200 in Avalon Marsh. It was green to me. You will receive a medaillon.

    7) go to the forge at Cornwall Station, loc 55650, 4940 and right click (with your mouse) on the forge to combine the shard of sequence with the ogre's medaillon. You will receive a new magical item. For me (Theurgist) it was:

    Sequence ring: +3 DEX, 4% body resist, 4% thrust resist.

    8) Return to Lady Nimue at loc 8375, 47290 in Campacorentin Forest. (at Cornwall station, take the horse to Caer Ulwych then head SW from there).

    Assist Sir Verin quest:
    9) (Be sure you chose this quest from Lady Nimue) talk to Sir Verin at loc 28435, 13265 in Black mtns North (he is at the entrance to Swanton Keep.

    10) kill the goblin Ulfwag at loc 18500, 26725 in Black mtns North. He is in the middle of the goblin camp. All monsters were gray to me at lvl 19. You will receive his tome. If you don't, wait and kill him again.

    11) kill the goblin Grilk at loc 4500, 5550 in Black mtns South. He is inside the house near Tepok's mine. All monsters were gray to me at lvl 19. You will receive his tome. If you don't, wait and kill him again.

    12) return to Sir Verin and give him both tomes.

    13) Return to Lady Nimue.
    The Sir Verin Subqest
    # Jun 24 2003 at 2:25 AM Rating: Decent
    Concerning the Sir Verin subquest:

    Sir Verin is in Swanton Keep, North Black Mountaints. (continue north from Snowdonia station)

    Ulfwyg is in the Goblin Camp North Black Mountains, loc 18,28
    Grilk is in the house near Tepok's Mine in South Black Mountaints, loc 5,5.
    Loc of Nimue
    # Jun 10 2003 at 9:07 AM Rating: Default
    She can be hard to find when its dark and raining. The actual loc of her is 8380 by 47321.

    The Haert of Albion quest seems to be a new one. Its does not count toward the 2 sidequest total.

    Has anyone done this quest? I chose it by accident at first and now I am stuck in it. That stupid poem to speak to someone in west downs has got me. Does someone know the name of the person I talk to? any help is appreciated
    RE: heart of albion
    # Nov 01 2004 at 7:36 AM Rating: Decent
    The person to give the chimes note is Marlin Thuler, the instrument merchant up the ladder, he tells you to kill the slave master Cottrel and bring his sword back. Cottrel can be found at slave camp behind charriot.

    Where can i find Lady Nimues dagger? it says a slave camp on plains but i only know of 1 and its not there
    RE: Lisreen's Plight
    # Nov 01 2004 at 9:44 AM Rating: Decent
    Travel to the camporentin station and speak with Archibald Oakheart. He claims to have knowledge of Lisreen's location. I have sent others his way over the past year but none have yet returned. If there is truth to his claim., then you must not tarry! Remember xxx, you will need assistance of other to face the slavers.

    1. Say Lisreen to Archibald Oakheart at Campacorentin station near the guard tower he is the weapon merchant.
    2. Locate and destroy an ebony fellwood for its dark heart of wood loc 43 17. You receive a ebony fellwood heart.
    3. Go to the slave camp in SP and search the crates in the center of the camp. Loc 57 15. Stand next to crates ... XXX searches a set of crates. You fail to find Nimue's dagger in this set of crates! XXX searches a set of crates. XXX pulls something from a crate! Searched twice same pile and got dagger. Stand long enough against the crates to get the end message. Of course it was easy at lvl 40 :)
    4. Speak with Archibald Oakheart. Give ebony fellwood heart.
    5. Locate Lady Nimue and deliver the dagger Lisreen to her. Give dagger. You receive 15 copper and gauntlets of archery. AF 34 qua 100%.

    you must always complete your lvl 7 and 11 class specific quests (i.e. travelers way) quest before recieving this quest. I HEARTLY recommended the SI versions of these because they are more enjoyable and rewarding.....well i liked recieving a crown anyhow.

    I also recomend if you intend to get your charcter to lvl 40-50. Do these quests as they become avialble. It is more rewarding then then later. You would have to do them eventually anyways if you want your epic stuff.

    The Lady Nimue in Camp Forest is at 8361, 47344 on the western shore of the Lake there. It's right beside the road between Caer Ulfwich and Avalon Marsh, but she is also only up during the nighttime.

    Easier run for some quests than to go to the others.

    Edited, Tue Apr 8 18:15:22 2003
    You can do all 4

    You actually can do all 4 subquests. You only have to do 2 of them through Nimue. 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.
    Sir Verin
    # Feb 09 2003 at 9:11 PM Rating: Decent
    To clear up and confusion, Sir Verin guards the entrance to Swanton Keep, which is on a hill on the road to Snowdania, can't miss it. I have just completed this quest so I know firsthand this to be true. Good Luck :)

    My advice dont do the wizard lost sub quest. Do the leanas dagger and shards of sequence it may seem u wont get the main item of the lady of the lake quest but u do, I did, but didnt notice I got it tell the next day. those two quests are much quicker and u get two lvl 15 rings.
    shards of sequence
    # Oct 09 2002 at 6:39 PM Rating: Default
    there was a question where is the dooben dude. I sat for an hour killing mud golems waiting for him to spawn. He does not spawn there, I looked around and saw some of those water willow trees to the southwest i said aye must be water over there. he is at a different pond to the southwest of caer witren. green to me at lvl 19 and hes solo, good hunting to you
    Shard of Sequence
    # Oct 06 2002 at 12:16 AM Rating: Default
    Anybody now where I find the Dooben dude for the new quest?
    RE: Shard of Sequence
    # Oct 08 2002 at 2:40 AM Rating: Default
    I cant find him either
    Grilk's in bed
    # Sep 29 2002 at 6:04 PM Rating: Decent
    I found Grilk upstairs in the ruined house near the mine, 4 earth elementals later he was no more. You have to get pretty close to the house for clear line of sight, so have a healer and some mates handy for when the goblins swarm you.
    #Anonymous, Posted: Sep 24 2002 at 1:29 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This quest is easily the WORST QUEST you can do in the whole game! The riding you have to do is INSANE and is a complete waste of time, it takes hours of riding back and forth through the whole damned realm. The SECOND best thing, though, is that after I arrived a second time to Lady Nimue, after HOURS of riding back and forth, she gives you ANOTHER step, and there you go riding all back to Camelot for the billionst time, and BEYOND.. to Black Mountains to find a damnable Sir Verin, may he rot in hell.
    Im stuck......
