Dalea Gronholm says, "Silica, it is good to see you again. I have recovered a bit from the last time we spoke. Remember the vessel you got for me? I was able to get it to Meregrota and she has enchanted it properly. It will be perfect for holding the essences that [Elizabeth so wants]."

Dalea Gronholm says, "Elizabeth has grown a little impatient with me, although she knows I've been sick and I'm still recovering. The situation over on the mainland grows worse, and she is desperate to learn some new enchantments to aid in the fight againsta Hibernia and Albion. Her one enchantment needs the essences of different undead spirits. she's asked a few others to help her over around Mularn, but [I am to gather] the essences here."

Dalea Gronholm says, "Since I am not well enough to handle this, it falls upon you. You must take this vessel with you and obtain the essences of three psylings. Elizabeth believes there is something in their essence that will help our brave forces defeat the armies of Albion and Hibernia. Go now and defeat three Pyslings. As you defeat each one its essence will fill the vessel. Do not lose the vessel for then all our hard work will be for naught! If it should become lost, return to me and we will work out a solution."

[Kill psyling x2]
The essence of the pysling flows into the enchanted vessel.

[Kill 3rd psyling]
As the spirit of the pysling enters the vessel, Pyserlian appears out of nowhere and steals the vessel from you!(Pyserlian can be found at loc=30920, 38009)

[Return empty-handed to Dalea]
Dalea Gronholm says, "So, you have lost the vessel, after I warned you not to! Do not fret, Silica, I knew that Pyserlian might cause trouble. While he may not be the strongest pyslings, he is cunning and fearless, and the other pyslings fear him. I am afraid that [without a special charm] to weaken Pyserlian, you will not be able to get the vessel back and trap his essence."

Dalea Gronholm says, "When I went to Meregrota, she and I spoke of th

[ -- Missing quest text -- Dalea tells you to go kill a Morvalt Ungdom and collect a finger bone, then take it to Meregrota Solvor who can place an enchantment on it that will help defeat Pyserlian.]]

Meregrota Solvor says, "Dalea Gronholm said that you may be coming to me for a way to weaken Pyserlian. Give me the morvalt finger bone and I shall enchant it."

Meregrota Solvor says, "There, the bone is enchanted. Do not look surprised that it took so little time. The spell is quick and fairly simple, but it will cancel the spell that Pyserlian has cast around the vessel. You must wear the bone around your neck to cancel Pyserlian's spell. If you do not wear the bone, Pyserlian will not give you back the vessel and Dalea and Elizabeth will both be disappointed. Go now and seek out Pyserlian and obtain the vessel for Dalea! When you have defeated Pyserlian, the charm will disappear for its magic will be used up."
You receive morvalt finger bone charm from Meregrota Solvor!

[Wearing the necklace, find Pyserlian SW of the stone bridge, near the dangerous Tendrils. Yellow to me at level 11]
Pyserlian says, "No! How did you break my spell! I shall seek my revenge upon you one day! Just wait and see if I don't!"
You receive enchanted vessel from Pyserlian!

[Return with the vessel to Dalea]
Dalea Gronholm says, "Silica, I am glad to see you have returned. Time grows short. Do you have the vessel of essences?"

Dalea Gronholm says, "Elizabeth will be most pleased to finally receive this. There is a Berserker going over to Mularn soon and I shall send this with her. I sent word to Elizabeth that a Berserker was helping me and she sent this over in thanks. Please take it, knowing that you have helped to protect Midgard!"

You are awarded 15,928 experience!

Hello all: Hope someone can help me. I am now a level 7, but way back on an earlier level I finished the Askefeur quest and returned the grifflet. Dalikor says,"I see you have returned successfully. . ." I answer yes, but he won't respond to me, so it still shows up in my journal to report to him. (I had trouble getting Viking Hylnda to respond to me too in the beginning of this quest, but after a few tries she finally responded. Dalikor never has and I have tried at least 50 times). If I was supposed to give him something, the griffin handler didn't give me anything. What do I do? Thanks.

I recieve the folling at lvl 15:
11 silver and some copper
Strength of the Storm Amulet
-7 Str
-4 Dex
-12 Hits
-1 Odin's Will



Also Pyserlian is a night spawn, when you wait near the tendrils (not to close!!) once night hits psyling pop, you have to kill a few (green/grey to a lvl 15) till he pops.

Where is Pyserlian?

Can anyone give more exact coordinates for Pyserlian?

It's really close to the stone bridge. Not where the psylings are all day. but where the night time only spawns are.

Head over to that guard tower in Aegir's Landing, and then go down the hill a little (from guards, go a little to the right) you will see a large group of Psylings, look for the biggest of them, that is Psylerian, he is very easy to take down, one person can do it, as long as you can range pull, if you are a pure melee, you might need to wait for him to get out in the open. Good luck!

cant get started

I'm a lvl 13 savage.......but for some odd reason my trainer in aegir wont give me the quest! I tried seeing dalhea directly..no dice though. I did her last quest and got the emerald jerkin but I cant get this one.

Any ideas...i want that blood red tooth.
# Aug 20 2003 at 3:35 PM Rating: Decent
Is there a reward for warriors doing this quest? I have a soon-to-be level 11 Trollie warrior, and it seems that this is the logical conclusion of my previous task, but, if I get a Berzerker-only item...pfft.
Blood Red Tooth

i just completed this with my 11 savage and received a Blood Red Tooth:
Con, Dur, Qua 100%
Bon 5%

Qui 3
Hits 3

Hope this helps future savages =)!
