|Start point||Speak to the squire in the courtyard of the White Knights' Castle in Falador.|
|Description||Sir Vyvin's squire is in trouble. He has accidentally lost Sir Vyvin's ceremonial sword. Help him find a replacement without Sir Vyvin finding out.|
|Enemies to defeat||None|
You start this quest by talking to the Squire in the White Knights' Castle in Falador. The squire will tell you he lost Sir Vyvin's sword, and would like you to help him replace it. He will tell you to talk to Reldo, Varrock's librarian.
Go to Varrock Palace, and go to the far north room on the ground floor of the palace to find Reldo. Ask Reldo about Imcando dwarves. He will tell you that one is located south of Port Sarim. If you haven't already made or bought a redberry pie, do it now. Members can buy one from Romily Weaklax in the Cooks' Guild just west of Varrock (entry requires level 32 in Cooking and a chef's hat). When you have one, continue to Port Sarim and then head south.
Note: You have to talk to Reldo before you talk to Thurgo.
Thurgo the Imcando dwarfEdit
You should see a small house on the side of a hill with a red exclamation mark. Look for Thurgo, who is an Imcando dwarf. Ask him if he would like some redberry pie. He'll take the one you have and eat it. Talk to him again to ask him about the sword. He says he'll need a picture of it. So, go back to Falador and talk to the squire again.
Acquiring the pictureEdit
Items required: none
You MUST go talk to the squire again who will tell you that Sir Vyvin has a portrait in his room. From the courtyard, go east through three doors, and then up the ladder. Go west through the door and then through another doorway and up the stairs. Sir Vyvin's room will be directly south of you. Open and search the cupboard inside his room. You will obtain a portrait that shows the sword. However, Sir Vyvin will stop you if he is in the room. There are four ways to avoid this:
- Have a friend talk to Sir Vyvin while you open and search the cupboard. You can also wait for Sir Vyvin to be out of the cupboard room if you don't have friend near.
- Open the door to his room and wait for him to walk out.
- Have the door open, and wait next to the cupboard. When Sir Vyvin walks behind the door, quickly search the cupboard.
- The cupboard is searched while Sir Vyvin is not looking towards the player.
Once you have the portrait, go back to Thurgo.
Note: You have to talk to the Squire first before searching for the portrait.
Enter the dungeonEdit
Don't forget to bring your pickaxe for this next step, and if you are at a low combat level, make sure that you take food with you as well! If needed there is an altar just north of the dungeon to restore prayer points.
Talk to Thurgo, and give him the portrait. He now knows what kind of a sword he is making, a blurite sword, and he will need the materials to make the sword. You will have to enter the Asgarnia Ice Dungeon on the hill nearby to obtain the blurite ores. All enemies in the cave are aggressive, so bringing food could save your life. It is also recommended that you only bring a good pickaxe if you want two blurite ores so that you can get your own sword (you also need a Blurite ore for the Falador Easy Achievement Diary - to smith Blurite limbs on Doric's anvil). So, go down the ladder and walk through. When you see snow/ice ahead of you, be prepared to run. Run along the southern walls to find blurite ores. The rocks are bright blue. Mine one ore or two if you want your own sword. When you have the amount of blurite you want, run out. If you want to do the Falador Achievement Diaries, mine an extra blurite ore as it is necessary for a one of the easy tasks.
It may be helpful to have a bodyguard to protect you from the aggressive monsters; however, if done correctly, a level 3 player can get the ore. If you die you will retain the ore, however, this obviously doesn't apply to Hardcore Ironman Characters.
Note that there is a spot where the monsters cannot attack you. It is right next to the entrance to the members-only area of this dungeon. It is recommended that you mine at the blurite ore rock right next to this area, so you can easily retreat to safety if necessary.
Creating the swordEdit
Now, get your iron bars. If you are an ironman, a single iron bar can be found west of the Graveyard of Shadows next to the bears in some trees in level 18 Wilderness (hop to another world for more). If you don't want to buy or smith your own iron bars or go into the wilderness, the pirates in the cave have a rare iron bar drop. Talk to Thurgo with your blurite ores and your iron bars. He will make you a sword. If you want a sword for yourself, drop the sword Thurgo just made and talk to him again with the materials. He will make a second sword. Then, pick up the sword you dropped. You now have two swords.
Go back to the squire and he will take one of your blurite swords. After handing over the sword you will be done with the quest.
