Tabure Ahendle may be found in the Qeynos Steel Warriors guild in the arena. Requires amiable faction with the Steel Warriors.

You say, 'Hail, Tabure Ahendle.'

Tabure Ahendle says 'What have we here? Perhaps a future Ebon Strongbear? A [member of the Steel Warriors]? If the way of the warrior is not to your liking, might I suggest joining the League of Antonican Bards? The only damage you might take there is a sore throat! HAHAHA!'

You say, 'I am a member of the Steel Warriors.'

Tabure Ahendle says 'A warrior you say? I have never met you. You must be from the [bunker] or perhaps just a new recruit. You should test your skills with Brin Stolunger. When you have done that, then, maybe you could [assist] me.'

You say, 'I will assist you.'

Tabure Ahendle says 'So, you think you be of assistance to me? Let me test your skill. Travel to Erudin and seek out the beasts which are called Kobolds. I have never seen one and would very much like to have four Kobold Hides with which to make a rug. To do so would earn you some barely used rawhide armor - maybe even a shield.'

Hand her the four Kobold Hides or you can hand in stacks as well.

Tabure Ahendle says 'Incredible!! Such grand tones. It shall make a fine rug. You have shown me that you cannot always judge a book by its cover. You are quite skilled. Would you like to perform a [dangerous task] for me?'

The reward for me has always been between 1 and 2 gold, and it is almost always either a 'Raw-Hide Leggings' or a 'Raw-Hide Tunic', but occasionally it's a 'Round Shield' instead. And he does accept stacks.

I toohave a stack of useless hides. BUT, the point is we would not know about these quest in game if we did not have the ability to look up all this information outside the game. Yes it is bad that we can't do them but then again if our faction is bad we are not supposed to know what we are missing in the first place. Still i hate destroying 16 hides to keep room in the bank.

I have heared that the further you have to travel and the higher the MOBs you have to kill the more faction you get. I am wrong. I am not then this is a much better quest than the gnoll fangs.
waste of time
# Apr 15 2002 at 1:34 AM Rating: Default
i wasted about 4hrs of gnoll killing to raise faction with steel warriors. my wood elf ranger, even after about 250 fangs, was still indifferent to steel warriors. If ya ask me, this quest is made for warriors and could be based on your race since a fellow ranger who is a human got steel warr faction w/ only 120 fangs.

Which gnoll fang quest did you do? The one where you turn in gnoll fangs to Capt. Tillian in Qeynos *does not* raise faction. Instead, turn them in 3 at a time to the Steel Warrior trainer (Lysbith Mcnaff) in Halas. I turned in 60 fangs (20 faction hits) and went from dubious to amaible and was able to then do the Hero Bracer quest.

This version of the gnoll fang quest *used to* lower your faction with Halas rogues, but not anymore.

Ok, check this one out. To do this quest you have to be REALLY liked by the Steel Warriors. However after 90 Gnoll Fangs I am LOVED in Halas and still Apprehensive to the Steel Warriors, I have dont the silly mail quests and the ice goblin necklaces. After 5 days of trying to boost my faction with the Steel Warriors I have come to one conclusion. ITS NOT WORTH IT! I mean really! Why Bother with them unless you are a Warrior (in which case you start amible to them anyway so faction quests are STILL a waste of time). By the time your high enough lvl to get the Hero Bracer from them you can already be in Velious doing your Ice Forged Shackle quest... MUCH better than the Hero Bracer. This game is full of quest for armor and faction that by the time you are high enough lvl to complete them you can already do quests for much better gear. This quest is a complete waste of time.. unless your a warrior whom accidently lost your faction with your own people. For eveyone else... there is better things to worry about than the silly Steel Warrriors.

How do you raise faction with Steel Warriors without hurting
# Sep 13 2001 at 5:03 PM Rating: Default
How do you raise faction with Steel Warriors without hurting your faction with Rogues in Halas, since the banker is a rogue coincidently? I'm not high enough faction (apprehensive) for these warriors to even give me the quest. I have done gnoll teeth with the captain until I realized my faction with guards were increasing but not the warriors. :( Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how to do this. I'm already kos in FP, so that's out of the question. :( Thank you.

Notes on Faction for this quest
# Aug 06 2001 at 4:39 PM Rating: Default
To whoever posted that first rant there, you just have to have high enough faction to GET the quest.

I haven't done it enough to check the xp gain, but the cash and item are worth more than the kobold hides, and you get a LOT of those adventuring in Toxx and the Warrens.

The best way to get the faction to do this one is to do the gnoll fang quest in Halas a LOT. That will raise your Steel Warrior faction until you can do THIS quest.

p.s. don't even bother trying this one until you are at least amiable to her though.

I'm an erudite necromancer, I have quite a few kobold hides, but I was wondering if there is any faction I need other than what I can get killing gnolls.

Note that Tabure will not give this quest if you are indifferent, you need to be higher.

I found this a fairly good way to get some extra xp and some armor, since I'm not a tailor.
