- No Protection
- Without a Scratch
Knothole Glade is having a problem with Balverines. When you arrive in the area, you'll find that the
village's front gate (#1) is locked, and that the village has been besieged by a handful of the
werewolf-like creatures. After you've dispatched them, you'll be allowed inside, and the village
chief will tell you that the Balverines follow a powerful White Balverine.
Just then you'll learn that the White Balverine is inside the village, and while the chief will claim
that it's attacking the warehouses (#2), it'll probably make a beeline straight for you. You'll have
to battle it, but you won't be able to kill it yet. You'll just have to hit it ten times to drive it
After the battle, the chief will come back over and tell you that the creature's skin "is too tough
even for you." He'll then suggest that you talk to the wife (#3) of the last man who tried to hunt
the White Balverine. However, when you approach the wife's house, the White Balverine will attack
you again, and you'll have to hit it ten times again to drive it off.
After the battle, the wife will admit that the White Balverine is actually her husband -- or, rather,
what's left of him -- and she'll give you a
so that you can defeat it. Conveniently, the White Balverine will take
that opporunity to attack again, and this time you'll only have to hit it five times (with a silver
augmented weapon) to drive it off.
Note: You don't actually have to use the wife's
. If you have another weapon with
, then that will work as well.
After the battle, the chief will tell you that the White Balverine has its lair in Witchwood Lake,
which means that you'll have to travel to that area and fight it one last time. However, with a silver
augmented weapon, the White Balverine shouldn't be too tough, even when it calls for Balverine
reinforcements. When the White Balverine dies, it will drop the
White Balverine Head
, your trophy for the quest.
When you return to Knothole Glade, the chief will be very pleased to see you, and he'll tell you that
you're now famous enough to enter the Arena. He'll also give you Theresa's Letter
and a book
entitled The Bloodline
. They'll describe how you're a descendent of Archon and how there's a
link between you and the
Sword of Aeons
That will end the quest, which should net you at least 800 renown and 6200 gold.
