Bjorn Thunderfist challenges you to a brawling match.

Quest information[edit]


  • Speak to Kilroy when you are ready to fight Bjorn Thunderfist.
  • Defeat Bjorn Thunderfist in the championship brawling match.
  • See Kilroy Stonekin for your reward.


Slashing Dmg: 7-17 (Requires 9 Dagger Mastery)
Inscription: None
Both hands


Once you enter a Norn style ring, the gates will open and Bjorn Thunderfist will turn hostile to start the single round. You only need to Knock him out once to win.

The easiest way to win is by only auto-attacking without using any skills to build up adrenaline. Keep the Block up whenever possible and interrupt when you can. Use the uppercut, knockdown and combination punch to do damage. You may get knocked out numerous times while slowly wearing him down. Or simply use the skills as in a real boxing fight. Brawling Jab to break his Brawling Block defense and then a powerful skill.


Initial dialogue[edit]

Kilroy Stonekin
"I've got good news, <Character name>. Word of our Fronis-stomping got out. You've earned yourself quite a bit of respect! So much that Bjorn Thunderfist, the brawling champion, has challenged you to a match. Will ye face the brute in unarmed combat?"
Yes Accept: "I have the heart of a champion!"
No Decline: "I'm still sore from the last fight."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Bjorn Thunderfist
"The last thing you'll hear is my "thunder fists" crushing you into a pulpy mass!"

Reward dialogue[edit]

Kilroy Stonekin
"Har! Bjorn'll be feelin' that one for weeks! Perhaps you should change your name from <Character name> to Thunderfist, eh? I'll be laughin' 'bout this at the tavern tonight."
