DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

If you have trouble getting this quest, you can always try the Crier in Ludlow to possibly activate it.

I got at lvl 12 as a paladin, I heard about it from a barkeep in Camelot. Although I think you can get it at a lower lvl. It starts with that you seek up Guard Reed in Humberton which will talk about a goblin problem they are having and they are awaiting news from a scout which have been sent out to investigate. He tells you to run to Commander Jusen past the 2nd marker past the bridge towards Snowdonia Station. Loc: 21166,1276.

He gives you a note which you hand back to Guard Reed which confirms the problem, and you are now asked to go to the goblin camp north of Humberton and kill the leaders there, Grilo and Fusnup, which were green and grey at lvl 12 and quite easily dispatched. They are either inside the house or walking along the shore I think, I found them in the house and undeads roam the shore at night, which can be dangerous i suppose if you are lower lvl, were grey at 12.

After you kill Grilo and Fusnup, Guard Reed says that the goblins are gonna attack Ludlow and you need to deliver a message to his son in Ludlow, Guy Reed and warn them. When you deliver the report to reed he says that you should talk to Maggie McClellan, which also is in the tavern which is a gossiper to get her to spread it around and here the quest ends.

As reward for the quest you get to choose between 4 kinds of bracelet which increases either strength, intelligence, piety or dexterity. And 5 silver and some copper.

  Bracelet of Denied Bloodshed
  Bracelet of Mercifulness
  Bracelet of Wound Knitting
  Bracelet of Preservation

I am playing a druid on Gaheris server and have been running around doing quests in Albion for a few levels now. I have tried getting this quest at levels 7, 8, and now 9. Are people from other realms not able to do this quest?
Key Info

Here's the key info for this quest:
1. Get quest from Guard Reed in Humberton, Black Mountains South(BMS).
2. Commander Jusen is at tower at BMS 21238, 1309. Say "goblins" to him.
3. Goblin house is near BMS 18600, 29300. Stay on road near bridge between 1800-0600 hours or you will have problems.
4. Shortly after 0600 there are several, three I saw, waves of goblins which run from vicinity of house toward vicinity of bridge. Best to wait for them to pass.
5. Grilo wanders along waterline between the goblin group on the shoreline and nearest the house and the one nearer the bridge. Conned yellow to me at lvl 7. Kill him first.
6. Next kill the goblin outside door to house. He conned blue.
7. Then enter house to kill Fusnup. He conned green and respawned immediately.
8. Get away now to collect your reward via a few steps left.

Guard Reed is in Humberton VILLAGE for those of you who try to find him. Otherwise, great guide!

Just wish I didn't have to search the castle so many times to find that out...
Jursen won't talk!

OK, my level 7 cleric and 7 paladin got the quest, but Jursen won't talk to us. What gives? I sure would like to finish this quest before the bracelet is blue!

THanks for you assistance!

I believe you have to say [goblins] to get him talking. Check your journal. It should have the word in brackets.
when and how to kill Grilo
# Oct 01 2002 at 11:50 PM Rating: Decent
Grilo is inside the hut at night, there is goblin fishermen guarding the door. If you hit him (guard) all other will come at you. Your best bet to get Grilo is to wait until 0600. Grilo will walk back from the hut ALONE to the shore. However, you'll still want to wait until he is far from the rest before you hit him or others will come at you again.

R the ones who cant get this quest from the European Servers, cus they dotn have the right patch yet. im not sure which patch we get it in, but we've just got up to 1.50.
Not Jursen, Jusen
# Jul 27 2002 at 8:42 AM Rating: Default
You have to go see Jusen (or Juesen) at the tower on the road to Snowdonia, not Jursen. Jursen is the one in the tower by the church (behind Humperton?), and he gives you the throatripper quest. It works much better if you go to the right guy.

When you do go speak to Jusen (Juesen?), you have to say "goblin" to him to get the goblin report. If you go to Jursen with this you get no reaction.
Unable to get quest.....

I am now a level 9 Infiltrator.
I tried to get this quest at levels 7 & 8 and was unable to.
I will try again later at level 9 and post if I can.
It says it starts with Guard Reed but I will also try Maggie in the bar as I haven't done that yet.
RE: Unable to get quest.....
# Jul 30 2002 at 1:35 AM Rating: Default
Ok I am now a Level 16 Infiltrator and still unable to get this quest.
Guard Reed ignores me. Who is the starting point for this quest or is it unavailable to my class?
RE: Unable to get quest.....
# Jul 19 2002 at 6:16 AM Rating: Default
OK this is really starting to bug me......
I am now level 10 and will try again, but is it Guard Reed who starts this or someone else?
Guard Reed just looks at me blankly as he has done since level 7.
RE: Unable to get quest.....
# Jul 23 2002 at 11:16 AM Rating: Default
I tryed also this at level 7-8-10-13.

I am a Armsman, so I dont understand it, do I have to make or talk to somebody before talking to reed ?

# Jun 17 2002 at 4:25 AM Rating: Default
I'm a level 12 ice wiz and I want it mainly for the follow-up quests. In Europe we're still on 1.45 but I have looked at the patch notes for higher versions and these are not mentioned as being added later.

Do you reckon there is yet another quest you have to do before this one?

Ok. I did this quest at Lvl 11. After completing it I Talked with Maggie again. She gives you yet another quest to help rid the goblins. Cant remember all the Details for it though. Ill try to post them when I get a chance.
Nice Quest
# Jun 05 2002 at 8:56 AM Rating: Default
I completed this quest at lvl 7 with an Armsman also lvl 7, myself being a Theurgist. The running around was easy, one comment I would make is to watch out for a named mob that spawns along the path between the the two towers and where you talk to Jursen, mob was named Bordric or something similar was aggressive and dark purple at lvl 7.

At the camp wait until daylight for your attack on the two named goblins, both of whom we found inside the house. During the night the camp is swarming with fisherman. Fusnup was a green con at lvl 7, Grilo was a yellow con. I died during one pull for fusnup when we had 3 adds, the armsman didn’t have taunt yet.

The reward is very good, as a new and untwinked I chose the intelligence braclet which is a level 9 item and is +4 to int. There was also a decent cash reward, possibly around 2 or 3 silver I believe. Quest was fun and well worth it if you can find someone to group with at lower level to do the camp.

You get the quest from Guard Reed. He can be found by the binding stones in Humberton. He will send you to see Commander Jursen.

To get to Commander Jursen, you can take a horse from Humberton to Snowdonia Fortress. (for those of you that don't want to walk)

When you get to the north side of the river your horse starts to turn NW.... you will come upon a tower that is where you dismount your horse and and speak with Commander Jursen. The exact location of Commander Jursen is Black Mountains South 21.166,1276,2423 (say Goblins to commander jursen) He gives you a report to take back to Guard Reed in Humberton.

When you get to Guard Reed you give him the report at which point he asks you to go take out the goblins named Grillo and Fusnup. They can be found by going north from Humberton. You will run into the Goblin fisherman hut at about 18.253,21.042

I found Fusnup so easy. He spawns like every time you kill him. I had to wait a little while for Grillo to spawn.

I hope that helps. :)

as far as i can see with the 2 chars i ahve been trying to get that quest, it seems as you have to be a highlander to get the quest. i've tried with my level 12 sarracen scout, and he coul'nt get the quest, but my level 7 highlander cleric got it very easily, and she spoke with the crier in humberton then guard reed.

I am an Avalonian and I managed to get the quest ok. Only one problem ... Commander Jusen it NOT at the tower .. ever :-( I've been popping back everyday for the last 3 or 4 days ...

Does he wander about or disappear sometimes ?
