Speak with McGavan in Booty Bay.


Listen, kid, you're not gonna learn anything hanging around here.

I know a guy who knows a guy. He hangs around the smithy in Booty Bay. If you show him this insignia, he'll tell you all about mithril.

So whadd'ya say? Leave this kid stuff to the babies in diapers, <name> -- it's time to move on.

If you're interested, his name's McGavan. Show him this trinket and he'll recognize your commitment.


A rare breed your kind be, matey. Let me see that insignia.


By Blackhoof's back hair—finally, one worthy of the Mithril Order!
