―Varus Vantinius[src]

InteractionsEdit

Lord's MailEdit

Once the Nerevarine reaches the rank of Knight Protector in the Legion, Varus will tell them that two missing artifacts must be retrieved in order to become Knight of the Garland. The first one is the Lord's Mail, which was stolen by Furius Acilius, a former member of the Legion who is now hiding in an underground cave beneath the castle in Ebonheart. The second one is the blade Chrysamere, which Legion spies believe to be wielded by Draramu Hloran in the town of Sadrith Mora. The residents of Sadrith Mora, however, will tell the Nerevarine that the sorceress is in Abanabi, once their disposition towards the Nerevarine is high enough. Varus will give the Duke's Guard Silver Cuirass as a reward for retrieving both artifacts.

Grandmaster DuelEdit

In order to achieve the highest rank in the Legion, the Nerevarine must defeat Varus in a battle at the Arena in Vivec City.

Our spies have heard rumors that it is now in the possession of Draramu Hloran, a powerful sorceress near Sadrith Mora, and no friend of the Legion. Kill her and return Chrysamere to me."

Chrysamere "Have you not found it yet? It must be returned!"
Draramu Hloran "Our spies say she is near Sadrith Mora."

After finding Chrysamere:

Chrysamere "So you have found Chrysamere, and a fine blade it is! Return it to me and I will make you a Knight of the Garland."
