Swift as an Arrow
Increase Archery to 50
Well met, friend. Imagine yourself in a distant grove of trees. You raise your bow, take slow, careful aim, and with the twitch of a finger, you impale your prey with a deadly arrow. You look like you would make an excellent archer, but you will need practice. There is no better way to practice Archery than when your life is on the line.
I have a challenge for you. Head East out of town and go to Old Haven. While wielding your bow or crossbow, battle the undead that reside there.
Make sure you bring a healthy supply of arrows (or bolts if you prefer a crossbow). If you wish to purchase a bow, crossbow, arrows, or bolts, you can purchase them from me or the Archery shop in town. You can also make your own arrows with the Bowcraft/Fletching skill. You will need fletcher's tools, wood to turn into shafts, and feathers to make arrows or bolts.
Come back to me after you have achieved the rank of Apprentice Archer, and I will reward you with a fine Archery weapon.
Congratulations! I want to reward you for your accomplishment. Take this composite bow. It is called "Heartseeker". With it, you will shoot with swiftness, precision, and power. I hope "Heartseeker" serves you well.
Stay within Old Haven to take advantage of the accelerated skill gain buff which speeds up skill gain by about 0.2 - 0.5 per gain.
