Taking up the Gauntlet is a daily quest during the Protector's Jubilee event.

Objective[edit | edit source]

  • Assist the Order of the Gauntlet priest Loban Nightshield in Ebon Downs

Summary[edit | edit source]

Elminster Aumar
The Order of the Gauntlet is a new organization composed of paladins and clerics of Tyr, Helm, Torm and Hoar. They have banded together to make common cause against the evils besetting the world.

The Order would be a powerful ally in the struggle ahead, so it would be wise to foster good relations with them. I understand that a member of the Order, Loban Nightshield, is currently striving against dark forces in the Ebon Downs. Travel there and offer Loban your aid. Complete any task he might have for you and then return to me here.

Steps[edit | edit source]

  • Speak to Loban Nightshield
  • Kill 9 Shadar-Kai in Silverwisp Swamp
  • Return to Loban Nightshield

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • Elminster sent me to aid you
Loban Nightshield
Elminster? So he has an interest in more than just the Harpers does he? Well I am not too proud to accept your aid.

A host of undead infest these downs, but the greatest threat comes from a contingent of shadar-kai that are involved in unspeakable rituals in the Silverwisp Swamp. I am well equipped to face the undead, but I would be grateful if you could deal with some of the shadar-kai.

Return to me here once you the deed is done.

  • I will

After killing the Shadar-Kai:

  • I've defeated several Shadar-Kai
Loban Nightshield
That was well done. I am grateful for the brief respite your aid has provided me. And too I am grateful to Elminster for sending you here. My superiors in the Order of the Gauntlet will be informed of this.

May Torm favor you, my friend.

  • Farewell, Loban.

Completion[edit | edit source]

Elminster Aumar
Well done, indeed! By aiding the Order of the Gauntlet you have helped lay the foundation for future cooperation between all the benevolent factions of the Sword Coast.
