Find Baltron Werters in the Plane of Valor, in the second castle near the gate, at +630, +150.
You say, 'Hail, Baltron Werters'
Baltron Werters says 'Hello, ______, I do believe we've spoken before and I told you I was very [tired].'
You say, 'You were tired?'
Baltron Werters says 'Yes, I've been very tired lately. I've been busy creating weaponry for the [Soldiers of Marr] and the many [other followers] of Marr.'
You say, 'What Soldiers of Marr?'
Baltron Werters says 'The various soldiers of this Plane, as well as the soldiers of the Halls of Honor, come to me for weaponry. Previous to my ascension here, I was gifted by our Lord Mithaniel with the power to craft exceptional swords. These swords that I create are imbued with courage.'
You say, 'What other followers?'
Baltron Werters says 'Recently, I was tasked by Sir Rathalzor to assist the Guktans with their invasion of Grobb. I made many [exceptional swords] for that battle.'
You say, 'What exceptional swords?'
Baltron Werters says 'One such sword I created was made for one of the most powerful knights I have ever met. His strength and courage were only surpassed by his swordsmanship. He [led] many battles against the trolls of Grobb.'
You say, 'He led battles?'
Baltron Werters says 'Indeed, with the holy blade I created, this knight, Gilfal, helped lead the Guktans to victory. However, the victories did not come without [casualties].'
You say, 'What casualties?'
Baltron Werters says 'Yes, many Guktans perished during this battle. [Couragebringer], the sword I created that was blessed by Sir Rathalzor himself, was shattered by a powerful troll shaman named Broog. The battle did not come without casualties indeed.'
You say, 'Couragebringer, you say?'
Baltron Werters says 'Perhaps you can assist Gilfal with recovering his sword. Take this solvent, which was blessed by the priests in the Halls of Honor, as it will bond with the sword and allow you to rebuild the great blade. Find Gilfal and give him the solvent and tell him you are [willing to help him rebuild Couragebringer]. Go now and find this knight.'
You receive Baltron's Solvent.
Next head to South Ro and find Gilfal at -360, -2445.
You say, 'Hail, Gilfal'
Gilfal says 'Hello ______, I have been stationed here by the elders of Gukta to patrol and protect our mighty city.'
You say, 'I am willing to help you rebuild Couragebringer.'
Gilfal says 'Yes? You know of my sword? Show me proof that you are capable of rebuilding my holy blade.'
Hand him the solvent, and he returns it with the following text:
Gilfal says 'Amazing, High Elf, you must have visited the Plane of Valor and spoke to Master Baltron. You will need to gather the four pieces of the sword to be able to reconstruct it. I only have the whereabouts of one of the four pieces, but I imagine that piece can lead you to the others. Go to the Plane of Storms and investigate there, I have a feeling you may find the first piece there. Here is the sword's scabbard to place the solvent and the four sword pieces in.'
You receive Gilfal's Scabbard, a 6-slot LARGE container.
Now head to the Plane of Storms with a raid and kill Neffiken, Lord of Kelek`Vor. He drops a Broken Sword Piece, which identifies as "Appears to be the left part of the handle."

Follow the line on your compass until you find Rombus (in the LDoN adventure camp).
You say, 'Hail, Rombus'
Rombus says 'Hail to you, ______. Odd, this sword piece of mine is humming and I feel it tugging towards you. Do you happen to know why? Maybe you have [other pieces of this broken sword]?'
You say, 'I have other pieces of this broken sword.'
Rombus says 'Aha! That must explain it. I knew this sword must have magical powers. . .I have felt its strength. You being here proved me that. [Would you like the piece] of the sword that I own?'
You say, 'I would like the piece.'
Rombus says 'Well, I won't be giving this to you for free. This surely must be a valuable sword. It is no doubt an extraordinary blade. I'll tell you what, I've been trying to create this new teleportation spell for a while now. Unfortunately, I have tried to create the spell multiple times but I keep failing it. I think I have very bad luck. Go acquire the [four runes] for me and return to me with them. Hopefully I can borrow some of your luck to create this spell.'
You say, 'What four runes?'
Rombus says 'Yes, the four runes were scattered by the winds to four different areas: Plane of Tranquility, Mistmoore Castle, Scarlet Desert, and the Gulf of Gunthak. Please find all four of them and bring them to me.'
All four are ground spawns. Rune of Xor may be found at -565, +220 in the Plane of Tranquility, underwater on the right side of the bridge as you head to the Plane of Storms portal. Rune of Yirno may be found at +10, +410, in the Mistmoore Castle graveyard (although not when the zone is temporarily replaced by the high-level revamp). Rune Wilun [sic] may be found at -850, -950 in the Gulf of Gunthak. Rune of Zota may be found at +625, -1000 in the Scarlet Desert, in the ruined building on the ledge near the shard camp. Bring all four runes back to Rombus.
Rombus says 'Okay, let's give this one more try. Hopefully your luck will rub off on me and I'll be able to successfully create this spell. Well here goes...'
Rombus's eyes glow with a bright yellow color. He looks at you for a second, searching for something. He then looks down his lexicon and whispers a chant.
Rombus says 'Excellent! I knew with your help I could create this spell. Thank you ______, here is your reward. Now, to try out this new teleport.'
You receive the fourth Broken Sword Piece, which identifies as "Appears to be the right part of the blade."

Combine the four pieces and the solvent in the scabbard to craft a Fractured Couragebringer, which identifies as "A broken sword." Bring the sword to Girfal:
Gilfal says 'Thank you for returning my sword _____, however this sword is incomplete. While it appears whole, the blessing of Rathalzor is missing. Please go back to Master Baltron in Plane of Valor and give him this fractured blade. Perhaps he can restore it to its original power. Go now and return this sword back to its true strength, friend!'
You now receive a Fractured Couragebringer, which identifies as "A broken sword that Gilfal has seen." Bring this back to Baltron Werters, who will keep it for a few minutes, then spawn the Avatar of Rathalzor, who will bless and remake the sword in its entirety.
Baltron Werters says 'Ah, I see you have returned to me with the blade Helmetthane. It is indeed fractured...perhaps Sir Rathalzor can guide us.'
Baltron begins to chant in a foreign, yet beautiful language.
The Avatar of Rathalzor appears.
Avatar of Rathalzor whispers, "So, I see Couragebringer is fractured. I will give this sword my blessing once more." A flash of blue light occurs as the sword appears in your hand.
Avatar of Rathalzor says 'The Champion of Valor shall wield this weapon, return it to him.'
You now receive the Couragebringer, which identifies as "Fills you with the courage of Valor."
