You say, 'I am Interested'

A dwarven smith says, 'Okay, then! The first item you can get back for me is my brass shield. Up on that hill, over where the trainees practice, there is usually an instructor. Last time I saw my shield, it was in the hands of one of those blasted lackeys. Bring it back to me!'

Hand a dwarven smith a Shiny Brass Shield, dropped by an orc trainer.

a dwarven smith says 'AHA!! My ringmail!! My, you ARE a resourceful one! Here is your reward as promised. It is exquisite, if I do say so myself.

It's time for me to make my escape!'

You gain experience!!

Hand an elven priest the Bracers of Battle, dropped by the orc warlord.

an elven priest says 'Erollisi be praised! You slew the orc lord! Well, here is a token of my appreciation! Should you wish to have that mace enchanted, just hand me the mace and my token and I shall uphold my end of the bargain!'

You gain experience!!

The Screaming Mace was an important item back in the early days. Getting your hands on ANY weapon that was MAGIC was a necessity because it allowed you to hunt wisps and the lightstones and greater lightstones they dropped helped a lot of lowbies to gear up. MAGIC weapons didn't just drop off most low level mobs, you usually had to have a group or raid to take on anything that dropped one and then you had to roll for it against everyone else in the group or raid so it usually took you a while to get one. Anyone who had a spare one in the bank usually wanted a fortune for it. Don't just dismiss these low level quests out of hand without considering the times players lived in back then.

As of today the quest still works. They seem to not talk but if you say the stuff in the right order they do speak.

I gave the shield to the dwarf and he said, "MY SHIELD!! Excellent, laddie! Next item on my list is my ringmail. Once I have my ringmail I am out of here for good. I will finally be able to leave."

Then I said, "What about the ringmail?"

dwarf smith says, "The king was the last person I heard who was wearing my ringmail. Return it to me and I will reward you with a fine weapon I forged."

I gave it to him, he gave more dialog. Then I spoke to the priest, thats who you say.. "The king is dead" Then he responds.

Its not at least to this point level restricted as I did it with my rogue at lvl 70 while just messing around in the zone. (Fixing merchant faction in Kelethin. Yea, I was bored) :)

FINALLY!! I got the BoB to drop today. I have been trying off and on with various characters to do the Screaming Mace and finally got the BoB to drop and I wasn't even intending to do the quest today, since I had given up hope that I would ever get a BoB. I'll probably just turn it in for the prayer cloth since the Screaming Mace is only 10PP on my server and I have better weps already anyway.

Broken quest?

The quest isnt broken, I just handed the Dwarven Ringmail Tunic to the Dwaven smith, he gave me the mace. Handed the Bracers of Battle to the Elven priest, he gave me the Prayer Cloth. Handed the cloth and the mace back to him and (trumpet sounds) got the Screaming Mace. No need to talk to them.

Nope the quest isn't broken - you have to say "What about the ringmail" to the Dwarven Smith to start the chat - then hand him the ringmail you looted from Emperor Crush.
He then gives you the Dwarven Mace.
Now talk to the Elven Priest, say "The King is dead", then he asks if you killed the warlord too - hand the elven priest the Bracers of Battle you looted from the Orc Warlord. You now have the Prayer Cloth & the Dwarven Mace.
Hand both these back to the Priest for the Screaming Mace.

Useless quest nowadays

Anybody that can use the Screaming Mace, can also use all the items you have to turn in to get it a lot more. Do the math and add up all the stat buffs from all the items you turn in. It just isn't worth giving up all that gear for a 8/35 yaulping mace, which sells for 20PP or less in bazaar if you really must have it.

Of course, you can do the quest multiple times until you have the screaming mace and all the other items.
The Old Days

Do you remember,
When magic was very rare?
When differences were set aside,
So that power all could share?

Do you remember,
Making friends from far and wide?
Teaching others languages,
When you HAD to take the long boat ride?

Do you remember,
When legends of the mace were first told?
The wonder and amazement,
That by QUESTING; its power YOU could hold?

Do you remember,
Finding more than you bargained for?
When through long QUESTING,
You found items that could help you even more?

If to one question,
You answered no;
Rant not upon the old.
Realize its legacy,
And by all let the truth be told.

I need to know if anyone has done this recently, with the condtion that the NPCs simply did not speak to you.

I am amiable to the smiths and priest, but hails, saying "the king is dead" etc. doesn't get a response. I've gotten all of the items, but it took forever and I don't want to loose this stuff if the NPC eats it.

Anyone know if it's broken or will this work now that the NPCs are mute.

As far as I know, these NPCs have never responded to hails. Certainly not for at least a year. The elf has always responded to [the king is dead], however. If he won't respond to that, turning in Bracers might be a bit risky. Should work at amiable though. The smiths don't respond to much of anything. Just make sure you give the Dwarven Ringmail tunic to the smith in the *middle* alcove and you should be fine. I did this quest with no problems about two weeks ago, so unless it got broken very recently you should be alright.
Prayer Cloth of Tunare

If the Screaming Mace does not interest you, or if you do not want to give up your SBS or Dwarven Ringmail Tunic, you can simply give the Bracers of Battle to the Elven Priest in the slaver cabin and receive the Prayer Cloth. You do not have to do anything with the dwarves beforehand. For a High Elf Cleric, adding the 3 WIS from the prayer cloth is just sugar on the newbie armour cake. ;)

Hey Folks,
I have the SBS and DRT already, just need the BoB. What I was wondering was-- if I don't need the screaming mace or any of the items, would I be better off selling the items individually or getting the screaming mace and selling it? I can look at average price and kind of figure it out, but I was hoping to get opinions from people out there in the trenches who really know the market. Let me know. Thanks-

The only item I have ever been able to sell for more than a few plat is the prayer shawl of tunare. It is +3wis on shoulders. great for lowby druids. BoB is worthless. SBS is worth like 20pp on my server, and is a good shield. But you do not need to turn it in to do the screaming mace quest. DRT has nice resists, but nobody cares about resists at low levels (I do, but nobody else seems to). It has less ac than banded, so you won't sell for much.

Screaming mace is nearly worthless these days. Ratio stinks, and the effect is basically yaulp. You MIGHT be able to sucker a complete newby into buying it, but a club like a sarnak enforcer would be better, and you could buy that for 10pp if you can find someone who bothers to sell it, rather than just vendoring it.

Is it really safe to gruop in cb @ lvl 8? i really need that prayer cloth to boost my WIS. the screaming mace is magic, and certain mobs can only be hit by a magic weapon, so i need that too. is grouping in cb at 8 a good idea?

#Anonymous, Posted: May 30 2002 at 9:08 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) 8/35 is not such a good damage ratio. As far as the dwarven mace goes, most merchants sell non magic weps that are better than this and a whole lot cheaper and there a lot of cheap magic weps out there that hit harder and have better procs or stat buffs than the screaming. To show how useless it is, I had two seperate people give my ranger a Dwarven Ringmail tunic and a Shiny Brass shield. I later bought a Foremans Tunic so I keep the Dwarven in the bank. My advice? If you have all the parts, /auction them and spend the loot on something better.

I just did this quest, got the BracerOfBattle on
the first Warlord I killed, the tunic was a freebee from a guy camping the tower....someone
said that the Dwarven Mace is better as it has the
same stats and less weight....but the Dwarven Mace
isn't magic and the Screaming Mace is...I like it.
The surge of strenth proc lasts less long than a

Screaming Mace - Time after time
# Apr 17 2002 at 9:37 PM Rating: Good
*sigh* I miss the good ole' days. For everyone who thinks this weapon sucks... pre-Kunark this was a 200pp weapon. That's right, 200pp. Clerics in their 20's and 30's used it. Why? Because there wasn't much better. Somewhat like my paladin who now wields Soulfire, which has been jokingly termed Slowfire now. 23/45, forget the extras it adds, this is an OLD weapon. Screaming mace is an OLD weapon, too. This is one of THE best original weapons you can still find in the game. Okay, granted, you don't wield items for nostalgia, but just remember, without weapons like the screaming mace, there wouldn't be the awesome ones there are now.

/agree/agree/agree/agree I can't agree more with you. Just because your warrior isn't dual wielding a Centi LS and Wurmy doesn't mean he sucks. Sometimes it's just fun to watch your character progress and gain items as he levels.
