This is the quest to obtain the Langseax or the Langseax of the Wolves. You need a very good faction to complete this quest (amiable at least).

Go to Renth McLanis in the tavern across from Mac's Kilts. Ask him "What dangerous matter?". He tells you of a crime. Agree to hunt the murderer. Renth then sends you to see Dok in Dok's Cigars. Find out all you can about the crime.

He tells you to go see the leader of Clan McMannus. This is the fishing village located in West Karanas. Speak to the leader. Then speak to Ulrich McMannus and he tells you Frostbite can track prey if he has a piece of sweaty clothing.

Return to Dok and ask him "Where is the sweaty shirt?". He then tells you he sold it to Tundra Jack. Find Tundra Jack on the tundra of Everfrost. He will tell you that Iceberg is using it for a collar and that you can distract Iceberg with his favorite meal, Lion Delight.

Go back to Halas and speak to Teria O`Danos. Do the Lion Meat Shipment Quest (you get coin and faction as well as the Lion Delight).

Once you have Lion Delight, be sure to bury it lower in your container then your normal food to prevent it being eaten by you. Take the Lion Delight to Iceberg and receive the shirt (NO DROP, LORE ITEM) and faction adjustment.

Now run to the village and give the shirt to Frostbite. (NOTE: Frostbite will wait for the murderer to spawn before he takes off. He walks pretty fast so I would strongly suggest that you have Spirit of Wolf on you. It also helps to have a party member along that can track because I lost sight of Frostbite many times and have had to start over. Also, Frostbite likes to fight things along the way. Help him out. Be very careful not to target Frostbite by accident!) Frostbite will lead you right to the criminal.

The murderer will be either Paglan or Basil. Paglan is tougher to kill and probably in his low to mid 20's, Basil is around level 20. Kill whomever the dog leads you to, hope he drops a Barbarian head and then return to Halas with the head.

Give the head to Renth for faction, coin, and of course, the Langseax (if you have Basil's head) or the Langseax of the Wolves (if it is Paglan's head). I am not sure what triggers which criminal you get or even if you can just kill both and get both heads, but it seems that you wil normally get Basil.

Short version: Complete the Lion Meat Shipment quest to get Lion Delight. Run to Iceberg, give Lion Delight, receive shirt, faction, and experience. Run to Frostbite, give shirt, and gain experience. Kill the criminal. Return criminal's head for faction, coin, exp and Langseax. One thing to keep in mind is that your faction will decrease a good deal with the thieves' guild by completing this quest. Please note that the banker in Halas is a thief, making it possible that completing this quest may cause you to become kill on sight to him, when you try to use the bank. Also, you will need high enough faction with the Wolves of the North to finish the quest.

The faction changes are as follows:

When you complete the lion meat quest:

  • Shaman of Justice (+1)
  • Wolves of the North (+1)
  • Merchants of Halas (+1)
  • Rogues of the White Rose (-1)

When you trick Iceberg and get the Sweaty Shirt:

  • Shaman of Justice (+1)
  • Wolves of the North (+1)
  • Merchants of Halas (+1)
  • Steel Warriors (+1)
  • Rogues of the White Rose (-1)

When you kill Paglan or Basil:

  • Rogues of the White Rose (-1)

When you turn in Paglan's or Basil's head for your reward:

  • Shaman of Justice (-1)
  • Wolves of the North (+1)
  • Merchants of Halas (-1)
  • Rogues of the White Rose (+1

Faction adjustments overall:

  • Shaman of Justice (+1)
  • Wolves of the North (+3)
  • Merchants of Halas (+1)
  • Steel Warriors (+1)
  • Rogues of the White Rose (-2)

Be warned that the Halas Banker is part of the Rogues of the White Rose, so you may lose banking privileges if you lose too much of that faction.

Need all dialogues, current faction hits, /loc of quest mobs, additional quest items, quest mobs, details to get both Langseax and Langseax of the Wolves.
