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 off.

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 silver augmentation 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 silver augmentation. If you have another weapon with silver augmentation, like The Sentinus, 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.
