It's a musical instrument I don't know how to play.

A lyre is crafted by a player during the Fremennik Trials quest. The lyre is needed in the quest to perform in the longhall to get Olaf the Bard's vote to become a Fremennik.

The lyre can then be enchanted by Fossegrimen to make an enchanted lyre and progress with the quest.

Creating the lyre

Lyre teleport

A player teleporting using the enchanted lyre.

The lyre can be made by using an axe to cut a branch from the swaying tree east of Rellekka, and then using a knife on the branch to obtain an unstrung lyre, then attaching golden wool. Doing so requires 25 Fletching.

Golden wool can be obtained from buying golden fleece from Lalli (1,000gp), then spinning it on a spinning wheel (nearest spinning wheel is in Seers' Village).
