Note: you can bug this quest if you accept it before you finish the entire "talk to sword" dialogue.
If you do not have 2 swords in your inventory, 1 being the quest starter "Sword of Thunder" and the other "Berik, Sword of Thunder" then you cannot continue the quest after killing the 100 skeletons. You need the "Berik, Sword of Thunder" item to speak to during the quest and advance it.
If you are bugged:
1. Delete the Quest. 2. Talk to the 'Sword of Thunder' again. DO NOT ACCEPT THE QUEST YET! Finish Talking to the sword until you get the item 'Berik,Sword of Thunder'. 3. Accept the Quest. 4. Kill the undead, again. 5. Talk to 'Berik, Sword of Thunder' 6. Kill the makers of Berik's, now in skeleton form.
Grey mobs won't drop starter Edit
It seems like the Grey mobs don't drop. Will mentor down to green and see how long it takes.

- Gray mobs should drop the starter, but one thing to keep in mind is it's quite rare to start, so the absence of it dropping while gray doesn't necessarily mean that it can't drop, it could be that it just didn't drop due to the low rate. It's easy to prove that it can drop gray (all it takes is for one to drop), it's almost impossible to prove the opposite. With that said, killing while green is still probably a good idea just in case. --lordebon 15:40, January 23, 2011 (UTC)
Mentored to lvl 30, and have killed about 675/1000 grey and green, still no drop. Will keep going till the 800 mark or so then mentor down to 25, which would be in the range of the quest and all mobs will be green. --Kding 18:28, January 24, 2011 (UTC)
Grey mobs do drop the starter. Just got it while i was mentored to 25. A level 16 defiled sentry dropped it. If you already have the quest running you won't be able to see or pick it up. --220.127.116.11 22:29, October 18, 2012 (UTC)Berserker Thukme
I was mentored down to 25, but ended up finding the sword on one of the lower level grey mobs, so it can drop from a grey con. It did take about 300 kills before getting the sword, however. 2/13/17
Able to complete quest with just "sword of thunder" Edit
I did the quest today (May 8 2013) only having the quest starter "sword of thunder" in my inventory and was able to complete it. 18.104.22.168 15:09, May 8, 2013 (UTC)Chiska
