|1||This scabbard is a rare treasure, it's inscription reads, "Talic the Defender," in archaic letting. He was one of the ancients who guarded Mount Arreat until the shattering of the Worldstone, a true warrior who gave his life to spare the world from the dark fate it has fallen to now.||The Scavenged Scabbard|
 Farming for the Watch Tower
- Take quest No. 8 Trailing the Coven > Khazra Barricade and take the waypoint to Highlands Crossing.
- Make your way directly across the Southern Highlands.
- If the Watch Tower has spawned it's almost directly opposite this entrance into the Southern Highlands so try to keep going dead straight. See it on the Southern Highlands map marked (A).
- Head to the very west of the Southern Highlands.
- If you see Karyna's Lost Wagon approach it as you'll get a Checkpoint as you do so which means if you need to leave and 'Resume Game' you'll resume here and it'll save a little time.
- Although the Watch Tower may spawn it does not mean that Vendel the Armorsmith and his Scabbard event will.
