Marton Sayer may be found in a cottage in Qeynos Hills at around /loc 1400, 300, 9.

You say, 'Hail, Marton Sayer'

Marton Sayer says 'Welcome. Please stock up on provisions, especially if you are headed toward the lair of the vile gnolls. If so, I wish you much luck and many gnoll pelts!! I also have knowledge of a [powerful dog]. I pray you do not encounter him.'

You say, 'What powerful dog?'

Marton Sayer says, 'I have encountered a gnoll who spoke the common tongue. He dared to call himself Lord Elgnub. He swore that some day we would cross paths and he would snatch my infant son Joseph from our home. He would stand no chance against me and the mighty [Gnoll Slayer].'

You say, 'What is Gnoll Slayer?'

Marton Sayer says, 'Gnoll Slayer is the mighty longsword which was passed down unto me through generations of Sayers. My days of battle are over, but I can still wield her with ferocity. The only thing more precious would be my son, Joseph Sayer. I would trade Gnoll Slayer only for him to be safe and sound at home.'

Marton's initial dialogue is slightly different if you speak to him while carrying the baby, after asking about the gnoll slayer you get:

Marton Sayer says, 'Gnoll Slayer is the mighty longsword which was passed down unto me through generations of Sayers. My days of battle are over, but I can still wield her with ferocity. The only thing more precious would be my son, [Joseph Sayer]. I would trade Gnoll Slayer only for him to be safe and sound at home.'

You say, 'Joseph Sayer'

Marton Sayer says, 'You speak of my son, Joseph Sayer. He is but an infant and is safe here with Mira and me... At least, I believe he is.'

Lord Elgnub can occasionally be found wandering around BlackBurrow. Kill him and loot Baby Joseph Sayer, which you should bring back to Joseph.

Marton Sayer says 'Baby Joseph!! Look, Momma!! Baby Joseph has been rescued by this good adventurer!! That evil Lord Elgnub made good on his word and snatched my son from under our noses. You saved the day!! For this shall wield 'Gnoll Slayer'!! Be aware of its [true potential].'

You receive Gnoll Slayer (the intermediate version).

You say, 'What true potential?'

Marton Sayer says 'The true potential of Gnoll Slayer is an enchantment which was once imbedded into a gnoll's eye which was placed into the hilt of the blade. The spell would help you fight off disease and call forth a wolf to fight beside you. Alas, the gnoll eye was stolen from the blade by a great, one-eyed, white gnoll. Alone with the eye, the only book which explained how to return the enchantment was also stolen. I know not where this gnoll might be. If you can find the journal and the eye, return them with the Gnoll Slayer to me for I have been searching for decades.'

Head to South Karana. Kill a one eyed gnoll (located in the northern part of the zone (/loc?) to loot a Gnoll's Eye. Kill a Lteth Val Scribe (/loc?) to loot a Journal of Greater Enchantment. Give the eye, journal, and intermediate Gnoll Slayer to Marton.

Marton Sayer says 'The eye and the journal! What a great day! The Gnoll Slayer shall be returned to full strength because of you. Your service to Qeynos will not soon be forgotten.'

The quest isn't broken, I talked to a gm and she said it was up and running. Though I still think it's funny that the listed time says 2 hours, I've been in bb 4 days and havn't seen him. Unless I'm doing something very wrong 2 hours is bs.

And Bliix if you ask Sayer "Where is baby Joseph Sayer" he'll say something much like "You speak of my son Joseph Sayer, he is but an infant. He is safe here with Me and (insert his wifes name)....at least I believe he is"

I have talked with him many times and he says his child is safe and fine,he does tell you about the sword.I have seen split paw looking gnolls once outside of BB on the prexus server but they seemed to be GM controlled and only dropped fine steel.I would say this quest is either broken or that there is some key to get the baby abducted?
Really ?

Are you sure. People come by that location a lot, but the Lord hasn't been seen on Vallon for months. Does he have a placeholder ? What lvl is he ? Does he indeed look like a Paw gnoll ?

Lord Elgnub spawns in the Snake (or Spike) Pit; I found him there immediately after he spawned.

As for the rest of the quest, there are a lot of rumors, but nothing definite. It's entirely possible Splintered Claw plays a part in this, since he is a "one-eyed white gnoll", but as I've only seen him once and was too low to take him on, I can't say.

Ok...here's my gig...I know that Lord Elgnub does infact spawn in the snake pit. I am also aware that (preserved split paw eye)Lord Elgnubs lost eye drops off the split paws in South Karana. All I wanna know is where i can find the "tome" and the he and/or she that re-enchants the sword. Thats all nothing more...I must have this sword!!!
Come on people throw me a frickin bone....lol!!!
