-- Hands you Lisera Lute --

Head over to the Southern Plains of Karana, to the little well where Vhalen Nostrolo is. Hand the lute to him.

Vhalen Nostrolo says 'Oh, dear! I forgot to repair Cassius' lute. I shall fix and return it to him myself. Thank you for bringing this to me. Here, please return this note to Cassius. He shall be most happy. Thank you again, good citizen!'

Your faction standing with League of Antonican Bards could not possibly get any better.

Your faction standing with Ring of Scale got worse.

Hand the note back to Cassius in South Qeynos.

Seems judging by the initial dialogue, the reward is always Hymn of Restoration.

All I had to do on my bard was take the lute to Vhalen in SK -47, -124 and hand him the lute and he gave me a note to take back and said he would return the lute to the other guy.

lute quest
# Apr 13 2004 at 7:26 PM Rating: Decent
I am interested in completing the quest for the lute, which is not this quest. Even though some entries refer to it, it isn't listed in Alla. Sure wish someone could tell me who drops unfinished parts or where the best place is to buy them.
Lute in three parts
# Nov 08 2002 at 11:53 PM Rating: Decent
The three parts that go together for a lute is the really hard part of the Bard epic. Only 3 part lute quest i can think of anyhoo.
RE: Lute in three parts
# Nov 12 2002 at 8:14 PM Rating: Decent
I have a 12 Bard in Qey and a 9 Bard in Kel. I have often seen "partial instruments" ( unfinished lute body, tuning keys, etc ) at various vendors but I don't know how to do the quest or combine these parts. If someone would post instructions on how to do these "instrument assembly" quests I would really appreciate it. Also : are the finished instruments better than the ones you buy ?

RE: Lute in three parts
# Nov 24 2002 at 6:03 PM Rating: Decent
I just started a bard too and came across the quest that requires the Partial instruments. It's given by a bard in the guild hall. On the right as you go through the door. There are 2 or 3 bards there. He's the one to the back on the left as you look at them. A trainer from memory. I was actually trying to work out where to find the pieces from the quest as the result is a lute. I figured it would have to be cheaper than buying one. I know you need, unfinished lute body, unfinished lute neck, fine tuning keys and lute strings. Can't actually find mention of the quest on Ally's though. Any help in where these items are dropped would be great:)
Another quest?
# Sep 27 2002 at 6:49 AM Rating: Decent
I spoke to my guild leader, and he hinter at a quest for a lute in 3 parts. I am unable to find any futher info on this quest, any ideas??

Also, is there a quest for a drum in quenos?
Thanks for any input.

I just started a Bard (lvll 3) and my first body was killed on an adventure; before I could get back to it, it evaporated, and I never got my scroll turned into the guild, so never registered with or enrolled in the guild. I assumed at first that all that cost me was the tunic. However, in reading a message board about how to play my first songs, it said something about how important that was. Is it important? Why? Should I start my character over, I already have three songs, three levels, and have spent several hours in the Qeynos newbie zone. :(

Actually When you turn in the scroll it does 2 things first you ge a reward second it sets factions so if you are still a low lvl i would restart and do over
just my 2 cents
RE: enrolling in guild
# Jan 04 2002 at 4:14 PM Rating: Excellent
No, dont start over. Its just to introduce the principle of "quests" to a newby and give him a start item. Goahead and adventure! You'll make it up in no time (probably already...).
Traveling quest
# Jul 27 2001 at 9:42 PM Rating: Decent
I've found this is a good traveling quest. One to do on your way to get exp in SK, then return to Qeynos to sell, train, etc. Kind of like Going Postal. Good to do if you happen to be going the right way at the time.
Wow
# Jul 11 2001 at 6:18 PM Rating: Decent
This is a pretty good quest. I just got to lvl 5 and im going to leave the computer on while using my drum to get alot of skill in percussion so i can do this quest faster. i might do it twice before trying to ge tto lvl 6 and using the scroll. pretty good money for a newbie
what do u say?

what do you say to get him to give you the lute?

Hail him as you would to get anyother NPC to talk to you and he will mention Lisero.

And think about Qeynos-sonyeq Sony Eq. I just can't stop thinking of Vhalen as the nostril guy, though..
Location of the Well

The funny thing is the LOC of this well is 0,0

Very easy to find that way :)
Location of the Well

its actually -47, -124

happy hunting
What loc?
# May 15 2001 at 8:34 PM Rating: Default
Can someone help me? I can't find the pyramid and I don't want to run around SK at lv 5. What is the loc of the bard?
RE: What loc?

The location isn't really a pyramid but instead is a well that is stepped. The way I found the well was (after way too much wandering around) to go to the Haunted Ruins (with all the Skels) and head ESE for a little while. If you run into the Centaur Village then turn around and go directly west. This quest is also a good time to develop your Sense Direction skill and be sure to use you songs to make the journey quicker (get a drum to devlop that skill also). I had to run quickly to avoid the train I was pulling and zone.
CONFUSED

what does the scrool thing do any ways if some one could answer plz do
what if you are twinking
# Apr 20 2001 at 7:36 PM Rating: Default
i tend to not be so good with newbies and i sorta like this quest my monk can do it even and he can give my bard least 100 PP so i dont like the money part i do like the exporing though
Level
# Apr 19 2001 at 8:25 AM Rating: Default
I would say that level 1 is a bit low to expect to get away with this quest, as the journey to SK is fairly dangerous. However level 5 seems to be a good level, judging from the responses here.
Wait a sec...

The Bard Guild in South Qeynos, not North Qeyneos.

And the name of the Bard who gives the quest is Cassius Messus, usually standing to the right of the stage as you walk in.
Who?
# Mar 08 2001 at 10:43 PM Rating: Default
Who in the guild starts this quest? i have been searching for quite some time... no luck here. Mebbie i am just clue less but i donot see the quest starter here. thanks in advance

Not just bards
# Feb 01 2001 at 3:48 AM Rating: Default
I had my friend, who is a 29 wizard, bind himself in the Qeynos bards guild ad then TP to North Karana, run south a few loc and zone to SK, pretty much do the quest. he got to keep the pp and my newbie bard got the spell scrolls, and faction. Its a nice little quest, especially because its only a bit of a run for some PP and a bard song! Even at level 11, i do this quest for the pp and help out low level bards with their song.
Broken Lute
# Jul 24 2000 at 4:31 AM Rating: Good
made 1.5-3pp a time with this at lvl 5 bard. Ran it several times with mail quest in wk. Got a full ste of leather armour with it at l5. Only downside is run takes 30-40min round trip and is a little dangerous in Sk. Highly recommended
