- "Caxton seeks an idol that will facilitate commerce with an able weaponsmith. Help him, that he might repay the favor."
Deliver an Idol to Caxton.
This quest becomes immediately available from Caxton in Gran Soren after meeting the Duke in the quest Come to Court. Caxton seeks a prized idol as a status symbol to get better supplies for his store.
Gift a real or forged idol to complete the quest.
- A Bronze Idol can be found in the lair of The Dragonforged at Hillfigure Knoll, as well as the Witch's House in the Witchwood.
Depending on the Idol given, Caxton will start selling equipment of varying levels as listed below. Forged idols complete the quest but do not give any subsequent benefits to the shopkeeper's inventory.
