Vendel the Armorsmith is a random spawn merchant that gives the player the quest The Scavenged Scabbard. He is also one of the few vendors that will sell a "Spirit Stone" (Vendel only randomly carries a Spirit Stone).
Vendel has approximately a 1:9 chance of appearing. Which given that the Watch Tower itself has a 1:2 chance of appearing can cause a person to have a difficult time finding him and his quest which is the only way to get his journal entry.
- "Greetings, friend. One of those dirty scavengers stole an ancient, extremely rare scabbard from me. I followed him in here, but then I lost him. Perhaps you could find it for me."
- "Many thanks to you. I would never have seen this again without your help. You'd like to buy something from me, yes?"
- He wrote the Journal Entry: Scabbard of Talic the Defender.
- He will not help you fight and will not take damage (can suffer damage from environment, for example by breaking walls).
