This quest begins with Chamberlain Krystorf in Icewell Keep.

You say, 'Hail, Chamberlain Krystorf'

Chamberlain Krystorf says 'Greetings and welcome to Thurgadin, ______. I am Chamberlain Krystorf and it is my duty to assist the Dain in the management of Icewell Keep and the Royal Court. One could say that Seneschal Aldikar is the Sword of the Dain while I am the Shield, protecting all of his interests and those of the kingdom.'

Dialogues? How do you know he's looking for helms?

Chamberlain Krystorf wants you to bring him four giant warrior helmets. These are dropped by various Giants in Kael Drakkal. Hand in four:

Chamberlain Krystorf says 'For storage reasons I'm afraid I can only accept four of these at once for the bounty.'
Chamberlain Krystorf says 'For storage reasons I'm afraid I can only accept four of these at once for the bounty.'
Chamberlain Krystorf says 'For storage reasons I'm afraid I can only accept four of these at once for the bounty.'
Chamberlain Krystorf says 'Well done, ______, the Dain is pleased with your efforts. With a few more brave allies like you, we'll soon be tearing down the halls of Kael Drakkel.'
Your faction standing with Dain Frostreaver IV got better. (+50)
Your faction standing with Coldain got better. (+50)
Your faction standing with King Tormax got worse. (-25)
You gain experience!!
You receive 20 platinum from Chamberlain Krystorf.

loc is POS 869 POS 11 POS 69. to the right hand side of the dain, in the chamber room.

When hailed:

"Greetings and welcome to Thurgadin, xxx. I am Charmberlain Krystof and it is my duty to assist the Dain in the management of Icewell Keep and the Royal Court. Once could say that Seneschal Aldikar is the Sword of the Dain while I am the Shield, protecting of his interests and those in the kingdom"

Give then 4 helmets:
"Well done, xxx, the Dain is pleased with your efforts. With a few more braves like you, we'll soon be tearing down the halls of Kael Drakkel"

Then...

"For storage reasons I'm afraid I can only accept four of these at once for the bounty"

Get 20pp of "bounty"
After 2 handins I was aprehensive (shawl quest on the siren's heair part)
After 3 handins I am now Indif.

It'd be most useful if you could post the actual logs of the dialogues. Thanks in advance!

Also, what are the current faction hits (again, post logs)?

You can also do the first two prayer shawl quests over and over (frost giant heads and toes are reletively easy to get) to raise dain faction.

The guy you have to hand the helms into is on Dain faction anyway. So this quest won't help you fix it.

How much plat does he give? Just wondering if you could get more plat by just selling the helms to a vendor.

This quest does give items, or at least it did about 6 months ago when I was more active. I did this quest about 10 times. The cash rewards seem to get better with faction, and on the last turn-in I received something like a "Royal Coldain Velium War Pick".

It was LORE, and NO DROP, and being a cleric with no use for a slashing weapon I destroyed it. At the time I thought this would be a common drop from the dirfs in the zone, but through a quick search of the equipment listing I have found this to be not the case. The statistics of the weapon were not all that impressive, though quite a bit better than standard velium weapons.. and had some stat enhancements.

So, just letting you guys know that there are rewards other than platinum for this quest. I'll try and turn in some more to see what I get. In the meantime, if you get an item from the quest, please post it.. pretty interested to see if there are some decent items available.

I did this quest with my Necro and also recieved one of these picks. The stats on it were on par with a Centi SS if I remember correctly. Since it was no drop and I couldn't use it I destroyed it.
Common as heck
# Mar 15 2002 at 10:53 PM Rating: Default
These are incredbily easy to find, I used to destroy tons of them due to their obscene weight and my equally obscenely low strength before I found out they were for faction use :/

Just hunt on the Wakening Lands zone inside Kael. As a mage at 51, you can pull anything from far away single with a Lava Bolt. Keep HP buffs up, chain cast on berserkers or higher. You'll always get weapons, helms, toes, etc. Quite easy, and if you can't do it solo grab a partner or a group.

This is a good quest for raising Dain faction, just killing giants wont do that. You need to be ally i think to get the Dain to give you the quest now,
dont waste helms
# Aug 23 2001 at 5:33 AM Rating: Excellent
dont waste the helms on this quest you need 4 to get the faction hit hand them in in skyshrine instead you get a faction hit for every one handed in. For dainfaction just do the sharpened pick quest that starts the caster crystal quest in thurg

I think the reason people want to buy them is for the quest in Skyfire to raise dragon faction, not this one.

Someone was auctioning to buy Helms in GD the other day...perhaps the quest is worth it.

I have collected three of them and every one came off a Frost Giant Berserker in GD.

The reward says platinum...anyone know how much? Can anyone say if the faction reward for this is worthwhile?

Hello Everyone,

I looted one of these after killing about 10 giants in Great Divide. It was green to a 51 druid. Took 3 bubs of mana to kill. It was a scout.

Good luck

Helmets drop in EW too!
# Feb 16 2001 at 3:22 AM Rating: Good
Been doin the Coldain Prayer Shawl quest. For the needed Giant Toes and Heads i have been killing tons of them. Anyway, never seen those helmets drop, that is untill last night. Had 2 of em drop in 3 kills. Both from Frost Giants Savages.

Im killing them in the South West corner of EW, thats quite near Kael. Dont know if thats anything to do with it. However i have killed the Kromrif Guards that are at the entrance to Kael many times too, though they never dropped em.

Does turning the helmets in trigger another quest? Like the Prayer Shawl quest? Any info would be great. Only got 2 of those helmets now but it seems another 2 shouldnt be too hard to obtain.
RE: Helmets drop in EW too!
# Jun 30 2001 at 10:42 AM Rating: Default
the Krom guards in ew do drop em, bout one to every 3 giant woven vests (fatso rygor) killed a hundred or so, while colecting meat and eggs for 3rd shawl, and while waiting on Tanik thru 9 deathsquad spawns for 4th
only 1 helm dropped, 20 some heads, 10 or 12 toes, if you want the helms go to kael and get em in mass
Yep, got one in EW too!
# Feb 23 2001 at 5:50 PM Rating: Default
I think they upped the drop rate for these and expanded the areas where they can drop. I thought I got mine off a frost giant scout, but it could have also been a savage. Sorry about not remembering exactly.
