Kill the Melodic Gaki and to deliver the dropped horn to Vasili Lutgardis.

Quest information[edit]


  • Hunt down and kill the melodic gaki. Retrieve its melodic horn and return to Vasili Lutgardis.
  • See Vasili Lutgardis for your reward.



Starting from House zu Heltzer, travel south from the portal to Ferndale. You should meet some Mantis and Dredge before seeing the Gaki just south of the resurrection shrine. You should be able to kill the Melodic Gaki and take its horn without aggroing the surrounding wardens. Take the horn back to House zu Heltzer to claim your reward.





Initial dialogue[edit]

Vasili Lutgardis
"Can I help you? Better yet, can you help me? Business has never been better, and my waiting list isn't getting shorter! But being a legendary instrument crafter is harder than it looks. I'm so busy, I do not have the time to craft any truly unique masterpieces. If I am to become a true legend beyond this rather provincial market, I need help collecting the most rare and expensive components for my new creations.
Take this, for example, my secret design for a new musical instrument neither seen nor heard ever before! Yes, I speak of the one and only melodic gaki flute! I have all the parts I need, expensive and polished and ready to piece together. All that remains is the piece that really puts the melodic gaki in the melodic gaki flute, by which I mean the melodic gaki horn. Now, some say the melodic gaki is a myth, but I say, nonsense! Why, I saw it myself, only a few...decades ago. Surrounded by dangerous....
That is, look, friend, I've got orders to fill. Just bring me a melodic gaki horn, and you'll be rewarded. Or my name isn't Vasili Lutgardis!"
Yes Accept: "Sounds like the mythical melodic gaki needs to die."
No Decline: "Are you crazy? Gaki are a myth."
Ask Ask: "The melodic gaki may be a myth, but I can't become a wealthy, grateful legend unless I get a melodic gaki horn. Did I mention grateful?"

Reward dialogue[edit]

Vasili Lutgardis
"So the Melodic Gaki really does exist! I never doubted it for a moment, of course not! Why, I even let word slip that I'm working on a new instrument, and my waiting list has gone through the roof! And once I can learn how to replicate the shape and tenor of the melodic gaki horn using less expensive short-nosed gakilids...but I digress. Please take this reward. I think this is going to be a profitable partnership!"


  • You may wish to also have the quest The Experimental Weaponsmith active while performing this quest since both quests take you to the same general area in Ferndale.
