The Fremennik Trials is a quest about the Fremennik people of Rellekka. Since they are not very friendly to outerlanders, you will have to pass their trials for them to accept you as one of their own.
|Council workmen have at last found time to make repairs to the footbridge that connects Kandarin with the barbarian town of Rellekka.
Do you have what it takes to impress the barbarians who live there and perhaps be welcomed as an honorary member of their clan?
|Speak to Brundt the Chieftain (located in the longhall) in Rellekka.|
|Long (around 1-2 hours, depending on how long it takes to find The Draugen)|
Obtainable during quest:
REMINDER: If you complete the quest, you will not be able to use Peer the Seer to bank your items, such as snape grass, until you complete the easy Fremennik Tasks, after which you can use the sea boots to bank through Peer again.
To start the quest, travel to Rellekka, which is located north of the Seers' Village. Walk into the longhall, in the heart of the city, and talk to Brundt the Chieftain. Brundt tells you that the locals are inherently unfriendly towards foreigners. To have a conversation with them, a person has to be a Fremennik - either be born one or be voted in by the council.
The only way to be voted as a Fremennik by the council, is by impressing seven of the twelve members of the council of elders, enough that they give you their vote. Each of the seven that accept outlanders have a trial for you to complete.
After you have spoken to him, tell him that you are interested in the Fremennik Trials, and he will tell you that you need 7 of 12 votes from the council members.
You can do the trials in any order.
Click on either the green circle or the name of the Fremennik below to follow the guide for that particular part of the quest.
Manni the RevellerItems needed: Beer, 250 coins
You can find Manni the Reveller in the longhall, right next to the chieftain. He says that to become a Fremennik, you need to show cunning, stamina, fortitude and an iron constitution and he knows only one to do it - a drinking challenge. If you beat him, he promises to give you his vote.
To beat Manni, you need to make a devious plan. Travel to Seers Village and buy a Low alcohol keg from the Poison Salesman in the bar. Also, grab a glass of beer for the Council workman.
The Council workman's location.
On your way back to Rellekka, at the bridge just south of it, you will see a Council workman. Offer the beer to him and he'll gladly accept. (Remember, the default action is to drink the beer, so don't left-click it or you'll have to get another one!). He will give you a cherry bomb, something he picked up from his outings, as a gift.
Go back to the longhall and take another keg first. If you try mixing the normal beer keg with the low alcohol one, Manni will get angry and stop you. You will need a distraction. Look to the outside of the longhall, on the eastern wall, for a pipe. Light the cherry bomb and place it inside.
WARNING, if you leave a lit "strange object" in your inventory for long enough, it will eventually explode, dealing 25 damage.
Enter the longhall and mix the low alcohol keg with the longhall keg. The bomb bursts with a loud noise, stunning everyone. Finally, challenge Manni for a rematch and you will win this time, gaining his vote.
Olaf the BardItems needed: Raw potato, onion, cabbage, (All 3 can be obtained during the quest), raw shark/raw manta ray/raw sea turtle (sharks are the cheapest)
You may choose to obtain the Enchanted lyre as a very rare drop from Lanzig, Freidir, or Borrokar, in which case you can skip most of the steps below. However, this method can take a while and is only recommended for players who do not meet the requirements.
