DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Prerequisite for this quest is the Goblin Incursion quest.

Talk to Maggie at the tavern in Ludlow. She will tell you of the troubles of young Trini Piper, whose parents were killed by Goblins at an early age. (She was raised by Jezzy Piper.) Talk to Trini, then Jezzy, and the latter will ask you to kill the three goblin servants of Grilk: a ratmaker, a footscratcher, and a bonescraper. (They con to about lvl 10, while Grilk himself is a 13.)

They can all be found just south of Tepok's Mine. It is a goblin convention there (up to a dozen conning up to lvl 13), so bring help. As you slay each of the three servants, a Goblin Head will appear in your knapsack.

Take the three heads to Commander Jusen in the tower due east of the mine. He will give you a King's Token. Take the token to Trini, who accepts it as a legacy from her parents. Talk to Jezzy Piper, who will thank you and give you 15k experience. Then talk to Maggie, who will give you your choice of one of four magic bracers.

You may have to do Goblin Incursion first.

There is no /may/ about this. Do Goblin Incursion first or Maggie will say nothing to you.

I highly recommend this quest! I did it last night as an 11 Armswoman, with my partner, an 11 Armsman, and we both had a blast. It's a dangerous area, so be very careful. The first time, we made the mistake of heading straight back from Commander Jusen's tower (away from the road). We popped our heads up at the top of the hill to see what we could see... and after we made our corpse run and prayed at our gravestones, took a different angle. The second time, we angled much farther to the left from the tower. Once you're on top of the hill, you have a nice, clear view of the goblin infestation. There's gobbies to the right, gobbies down and to the left, and lots of gobbies far down in the valley. Once you've taken that all in, loose your sword in it's sheathe, cause you're going in. See the cabin way down deep in the valley? That's your target. It looks a bit scary to get there, but there's actually a pretty clear path if you look around a moment before you go. When you get near the cabin, stop. There's lots and lots of goblins there, as well as scouts who will go back and tell their friends that there's some foolish party-crashers come to play. We based ourselves out of the trees and did a lot of watching, darting in to pull, and pulling back to kill. The goblins wander a lot, but eventually the goblins footscratcher, bonescraper, and ratmaker will be on your side and you'll be able to grab them. The fights themselves were quite easy, as they were all blue. Then all you have to do is give their heads to Jusen and return to the tavern for an ale and a nice reward of your choosing.

I think he's right

Yeah man, I've got a level 9 Cabalist I'm working on right now and he's got the quest (I did complete the goblin incursion quest). So I think that's all you're lacking to get the quest from the sisters. However, I'd level up a bit since they are ALL aggro as hell and most are at least yellow or tougher at the time. They just *****-slapped my Ruby Sim. and then all came after me, and I haven't been able to get to my gravestone since, Lol.

I have a 13 paladin and would really like the heart of the determined and the heart of the zealot; can this be done twice?

That may mean the low end cap on the quest isn't correct.. also may need to complete the Goblin Incursion quest first...
