Hratli As I told you before, I placed an enchantment upon the dockside in order to keep the demons at bay. But lately, the enchantment seems to be weakening. If memory serves me correctly, there is a holy Skatsimi blade that could revitalize the enchantment. The blade is called the Gidbinn. Find it, and our sanctuary here will remain safe. As far as I know, the Gidbinn is in the possession of the Children of Light. They do not wish it to fall into the hands of those who can restore its powers. GOSSIP You may not believe it, but Ormus is the one who can use the Gidbinn to protect us. I trust you already know Meshif. But did you know that he was born and raised here? I suspect that like many of us his spirit is near broken at the sight of Kurast’s decline. Only our brand of gallows humor saves us from utter despair.
Look for the Gidbinn in the Flayer Jungle.
Don’t let the Gidbinn’s size fool you. Though it is only a small dagger, it holds tremendous power when in the hands of a true Skatsimi mage.
The Gidbinn is one of the few remaining relics of Skatsim, the Old Religion. It is reputed to have great powers.
You’d best get back out there and find that blade. The jungle creeps further into this camp by the hour.
Ormus is familiar with the Gidbinn. But how would a powerful Skatsimi artifact aid an unbeliever like you?
Once the gidbinn is found, Ormus will use it to strengthen the protective barrier around the dockside.
If we are to have peace from the shadow, you must find the weapon which will destroy the Light.
I’ve done some research on the Taan mage-clan, and it seems that most of their magical studies were focused on Skatsimi rites. If anyone is qualified to use the powers of the Gidbinn, it would be Ormus.
Have you not heard of the Gidbinn? Well, allow me to reduce your ignorance on the subject.
The Gidbinn is an enchanted dagger - a religious artifact greatly valued by the Old Religion, Skatsim.
Legend has it that the Skatsimi priests placed great power within the small blade. Power enough to repel this terrible jungle-curse which encroaches on our sanctuary.
The Gidbinn will reinforce the enchantments that protect the dockside from the evil that infest Kurast.
I’m certain that the Gidbinn is very closely guarded.
The jungle is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Imagine Paradise festering like a wound . . . then bursting!
Hratli seems to be the only one left here with any common sense. Yet how sensible is it to remain here?
NOTE: Deep in the Flayer Jungle you find the Gidbinn among the ruins. Quest log is updated.
Return the Gidbinn to Ormus.
You have done well, noble hero. Ormus congratulates you. The old spirits of Skatsim will watch over you for returning their sacred blade.
Now, after all these years, Ormus will once again use his powers to protect the innocent from the shadow. The spell that protects the dockside shall now be reinforced.
Have you met Natalya? She appears to be a member of the Khral-Harzhek, a secret order that has been around for centuries . . . almost as long as the Horadrim, itself.
Her presence here makes me uneasy, for they are traditionally sworn to hunt down Magi who have betrayed the trust of their order.
I wonder why she is here.
Who could have foreseen that the Old Religion would play such an effective role in our war against the Three? Again, your efforts amaze me, my friend.
Hah! You have stolen the fabled blade from right under Zakarum’s nose! This is a great day, indeed!
I hope you don’t object to my badgering the witless.
Now that fewer of the Iron Wolves are needed to guard the dockside, some of them have volunteered to accompany you free of charge.
The jungle can take you down fast. Try to avoid getting trapped out there if you can.
This magic ring does me no good. Here . . . Wear it proudly!
Asheara is both proud and self-conscrious of her womanhood.
With any luck, the spirits of Skatsim will grant us revenge upon the powers that ravaged this land.
That woman, Natalya, seems to be waiting for something important to happen. She’s a strange one, I think.
You are truly amazing, stranger. There are precious few items in the world that would tempt me to go up against the Children of Zakarum and their midget minions.
My Order has been keeping watch over Ormus for many years, now. He seems to champion the cause of good, but who knows what shadow lurks within his soul?
