I don't actually believe that the Elven chainmail is a mistake. When all the other artifacts are discovered, there is no text as to how they work as the quest notes refer you to the artifact card. The quest notes for the Elven chainmail detail how it works, just as it does in quest 9 for the Elven potions of speed and vision, for which there are also no corresponding artifact cards.

I do believe however that the Elven Bracers are a mistake. I place them in the chest in quest 7, in the top right corner, for which there are no notes. I also believe this is where it was intended that they should be found. There are no notes for the chest which is unusual. Not even a "This chest is empty". If you look at the letter placing on the quest map, the letter H would be appropriate here, and there is even space on the quest notes page for a note H in respect of the chest.

I follow and agree with your logic. |_P

Also, in the Barbarian quest pack, the Amulet of the North, which has the same effects as the Elven Bracers, is found in quest 7, which further makes quest 7 in the Elf Quest pack as the appropriate location for the Bracers.

Awesome! Thank you. I was looking at Phoenix's rendition of the EQP where the Elven Bracers are mentioned instead. So i looked up the old scan on the hasbro site. It seems a very Significant item to be just casually mentioned in the quest pack. More evidence that this has not been play tested.

I'm surprised the Avenger Sword doesnt have any stats. It would be cool if it was a broadsword or a longsword that had a special power such as 1 extra attack die verses orcs or something like that. The elf could use it temporarily in quest 1 before it is returned to the queen at the end of the quest (just like the Elven Bow of Vindication).
