At the end of the Kobold Shaman Artifacts quest, Breya sends you to Gans Paust.

You say, 'What of your brother?'

Gans Paust says, 'What? How do you know fo my brother? Ahh I assume Breya told you. He's been gone for quite some time with no word sent on his progress or his wellbeing. I need to find someone to [check on him].'

You say, 'I will check on him for you.'

Gans Paust says, 'Thank you, adventurer. He's one of our people's most knowledgeable geologists and has left to survey an island out in Erud's Crossing. He was sending monthly reports until two weeks ago when his report never showed up. I'm worried something may have happened to him. Take this note to Yelesom and bring back something to assure me of his safety. A reward fitting a Deepwater Knight shall be yours upon your success.'

Receive Note from Gans to Yelesom, which reads:

Brother, Your report is two weeks late. I fear something has harmed you and have sent this courier to inquire about your well being. Please send the courier backwith message of your health and progress. Regards, Gans.

In Erud's Crossing, locate Yelesom and give him the note. You get typical courier experience (that is, not much), and possibly a couple of faction adjustments.

Yelesom Paust says, 'Gans sent you to check on me did he? Well you can tell my dear brother that the surveying has been halted. One of those furballs has stolen my tools, making my job impossible. Kerrans, kobolds, gnolls, we're constantly under siege by these primitives. Anyway, perhaps you could [help me]?'

You say, 'I will help you.'

Gans Paust says, 'Wonderful. The beast took my tool kit whilst I slept at camp. I awoke only to see him paddling frantically out into the ocean in a small boat. He couldn't have gone very far. If you stand at my [camp] and look towards the next closest head stone, you will be facing the direction in which the Kerran thief fled. Swim straight out from there and you should see his cunning little boat.'

You say, 'Where is your camp?'

Gans Paust says, 'My camp is next to the head stone on the eastern most portion of this island. The Kerran may have dropped some of my tools inot the ocean as it fled. Please return the complete tool kit and I'll make sure my brother rewards you.'

When you swim out to the water to collect the stolen tool kit, the magnifying glass is sitting on the ground not to far from the shore. The loc to it is neg 600, pos 2000.

The hammer looks like a hammer and is on the ocean floor right by the wall. You will have to swim down the deep drop off here to find it. The loc is neg 526, pos 2287.

The 'frantic kerran' is on a boat at loc pos 33, pos 3158. Kill him and get the tool kit off him. Combine the maginifiying glass and the hammer in the tool kit, then take it back to Yelesom. Give it to him, and he will give you a return letter to take back to his brother. (it looks like a book and you can't read it.)

Go back to Erudin and give the letter to Gans Paust for your reward.

Gans Paust says 'Ahhh, thank you for your effort, ______. I'm glad he's doing ok despite the theft. I now award you the Sleeves of Midnight Sea. May they protect you until the time of our glorious redemption.'
Your faction standing with Deepwater Knights has been adjusted by 25.
Your faction standing with High Council of Erudin has been adjusted by 3.
Your faction standing with Heretics has been adjusted by -3.

Yes, follow his directions exactly and you will get the 2 missing tool components, and the tool box. Your reward after you finish the quest is some nice midnight sea vambraces for eru pal or cler only.
