The Red Dagger (level 25)
DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different
Characters that were created after Patch Version 1.79 do not receive this Epic quest.
This quest is the 3rd installment of the Red Dagger quest.
It starts by speaking to Lynnleigh on the island near Vasudheim.
She speaks to you about the [Thane's blood]. Get used to that name, you'll be typing it a lot. She then asks you to go and speak to ALL the smiths of Midgard to learn about the Thane's Blood.
Of course, you want to start at the smith in Haggerfel, Genlu Edrill. Since you've spoken with him earlier, he remembers you when you asking about [Thane's Blood], and tells you to try Kol Smithir, the smith in Huginfell.
Kol is tired of talking about the legend, and tells you to go talk to the smith in Audliten. His name is Dahn, and he believes in the Thane's Blood.
He says he will help you, and then says he cannot tell you where the axe you seek is, but he can help you fashion a container to hold the Thane's Blood. He says he requires three items, all from Yggdra Forest:
(They all con blue to a level 26 Skald.) Kill these things, then return to Dahn in Audliten.
When you give the items to him, he tells you to go to the Gythja of Bragi and "curtsey all nice like" and tell her that "the Thane's Blood flows from many hands".
After you do this, she gives you a reward and will tell you to return to her when you have gotten stronger (level 30 or so).
Official hint (From Camelot Herald): Players stuck on step 9 that can't get the NPC to respond to [Thane's blood] need to make sure they're using the correct punctuation and try simply right clicking on her. You must be level 25.
