You say, 'Hail, Brother Dilgen'
Brother Dilgen yells at you, his voice sounding muffled beneath his large helmet. 'What?! Sorry, I can't hear you that well. My chastity helmet is one of the more padded ones Quigley has made. I keep the Brothers well [stocked], so Quigley thought I would be useful on this [rescue] mission.
You say, 'Stocked?'
Brother Dilgen says 'Chastity helmets, light daggers for close combat, harpoons and rope -- everything you would need for fighting sirens! I've been with the Brothers for two years now, and I've proven I can craft and fight. I can handle myself. You'll never find ME in a compromising embrace!'
You say, 'Rescue mission?'
Brother Dilgen says 'I slept in my chastity helmet the night of the attack, just like Brother Saldar is always saying we should do. I'm glad I did! Who else would be left to save our brothers? Quigley sent me down here, saying I should find Brother Horace the Resolved. But the first person I saw was that barbarian woman, [Dagda].'
You say, 'Dagda?'
Brother Dilgen says 'She asked if I had seen a gnome dressed in a robe, with graying hair. Then she dove into the water and swam through the northern tunnel. You should probably [find] her before she gets herself killed.'
You say, 'I'll find her'
Brother Dilgen says 'Good luck! Keep your ears closed and eyes downcast!'
You have been assigned the task 'Loyal is the Heart'.
Dagda hastened Dabner. Find her and see if she could use your assistance in rescuing her friend.
Find and speak with Dagda 0/9 (Caverns of Endless Song)
Dagda is found in the caverns east of the zone-in area (in between the spineback and crocolisk clearings).
Dagda Icefury smiles ruefully. 'So you followed me, _____. Not the smartest thing you've done... though maybe waiting until rested and fed was smarter than the course I took...' Dagda shifts her body. A gash in her leg separates and pours out thick blood. She grabs the wound, grunts, and applies pressure.
Dagda Icefury says 'Like I said, the first thing to go isn't your skill, it's your speed. There was a time when four sirens at once wouldn't have stood a chance.'
Dagda Icefury is silent for a moment, looking at the cave floor. Seawater drips from her hair. 'I keep seeing his head disappear beneath the waves. Foolish as it might be, I thought he would always cling to me no matter what songs might tempt him. You think you know a man after so many years...'
Dagda Icefury says 'Blood seeps around Dagda's fingers. 'In darkness I descended, ears and lungs bursting. The first air I tasted was in this dank lair. I could not see Dabner in the pitch black. I wandered unsleeping, searching.'
Dagda Icefury says 'I found the lair: sirens awaiting my blade. One fell, then two, and then two more. When you're surrounded, you move fast, you kill fast. But I wasn't fast enough. A temptress's claws are sharp, sharper than steel... and they cut deeper.'
Dagda Icefury says 'I stumbled. One grabbed my sword. Another ripped away my shield and tossed it in the water.' Dagda bows her head. 'If I didn't owe my friend my life, I would have thrown it away rather than retreat.'
Dagda Icefury laughs. 'So this is my return to battle and adventure: wounded in a dingy cavern after my first real fight. Now isn't the time to sit and moan, not when your friends are in danger.
Dagda Icefury says 'Just my sword and shield... skin will mend, but I need steel to fight. You're here now, so I know you care at least that much, whatever your intentions. Look for them in the lair of the sirens, near the towering coral.'
Dagda Icefury grimaces. 'And sea turtle fat... for the pain.'
Defeat the siren that stole Dagda's sword in the coral formation 0/1 (Caverns of Endless Song)
Find Dagda's shield beneath the coral formation 0/1 (Caverns of Endless Song)
Find sea turtle fat to dull Dagda's pain 0/5 (Caverns of Endless Song)
For the sword: Head into the siren caverns east of Dagda's location where you'll find a giant purple coral inside which is "a sword thief" which is leashed to the room in which it's found. Its damage output is standard for the zone, but it has a lot of hitpoints. DPS it to 10% for the sword update:
a sword thief runs her finger down Dagda's sword. 'This is such a lovely blade, a regal gift for Queen Silisia! Your filthy presence in her cavern has made her so cross! But maybe this will soothe her. Though I can't sing, I can be useful in many ways!'
For the shield: On the cavern floor far below this giant coral at about is a clickable shield that sticks out of the ground (location is random, but will be somewhere on the floor in the large underwater cavern beneath the coral). When you click this, a mob spawns (doesn't see invis). It summons from 100% health; is stunnable but immune to mez; and is leashed to the cavern in which it's found. Kill it and loot it for the shield update:
As you reach for Dagda's shield, a gigantic tentacle wraps around it.
a giant octopus has been slain by _____!
"Sea Turtle Fat" is a common (maybe 100%) drop from "a sea turtle" mobs in this same area. They don't appear to be social with other sealife and are of regular difficulty for the zone (mezzable but immune to stuns).
Tell Dagda what happened to her sword 0/1 (Caverns of Endless Song)
You say, 'Hail, Dagda Icefury'
Dagda Icefury curses at the name of Silisia. 'A siren queen? Either Dabner rests at the bottom of these watery tunnels or she has him. She takes my friend and now my weapon... I swear I'll bring her a fitting gift!
Give Dagda her shield 0/1 (Caverns of Endless Song)
Dagda Icefury receives the cracked shield and looks upon it with sadness. 'It was a gift from Ognit and Dabner, forged after Firiona was lost to us.' Upon the steel a maiden stands, sword upraised. On either side of her, two small figures, hands outstretched, emit strands of magic that enwreathe the maiden and her blade. Cracks now rive the shield, separating the figures.
Give Dagda the sea turtle fat 0/5 (Caverns of Endless Song)
Dagda Icefury rubs the viscous fat over the gash in her leg and binds it with cloth. 'I can stand. I still feel the pain, but that is good. Pain never lets you forget, never lets you rest.'
Speak with Dagda 0/1 (Caverns of Endless Song)
You say, 'Hail, Dagda Icefury'
Dagda Icefury says 'Quigley wants you to save his brothers? I don't care. They deserve nothing from me. Quigley speaks of debt. The only debt I owe is to my friends. Firiona will understand. Go back to Dilgen if you are so eager to fill the pockets of pirates. I'm going to save Dabner.'
This task is repeatable with a 6-hour lockout from the time of request.
