    At the end of the previous quest, you were told to find Taruun Joharr and give him your Hardened Buckler of the Beetle. Taruun Joharr is hard to find. Head for the north gate, but just as you pass under the arch, but before you go across the bridge you can go right along the outer city wall but also along the big fall into the pit. Taruun Joharr is not far along the right wall. Since he keeps the buckler and replaces it with two daggers, you may not wish to do this step until you're ready to dual wield.

    Taruun Joharr takes the buckler and spins it in his hand for a moment. Eventually he says, 'I suppose assumin' you were sent here by Harbin isn't too far from the reality of things. I'll try to think of a few things for you to do, but in the meantime, take these daggers and practice until you can use both of them. You need to get out of the habit of toting this shield around. If your enemy is gettin' close enough to hit you on it, you ain't doin' your job right anyway. I'll do what I can to train you from here, but I'm going to need to eat first. It's been a while since my last meal. Take this meal voucher to Cook Yalkiin. Once they fill the order bring it back and we'll start your lesson. Now scoot.'

    You receive two Black Handled Daggers (4/24), one for PRIMARY and one for SECONDARY. You also receive a Meal Voucher.

    Cook Yalkiin can be found in the Throne room area on the first door on the left. Give him the voucher.

    Cook Yalkiin says 'I'd love to fill this order, but we're out of the meat that he likes. We've been very busy today, so I doubt that any of us will be able to get out to gather more of it. If you could go out and grab us a few slabs, we could not only fill the order, I could put some away for anyone else that may come through today. This sounds like a perfect task for a young Taruun recruit. Fill this bag with the fatty meat from a young Owlbear and bring it back to me right away. I'll get Joharr's sandwiches as soon as you return with the meat.'

    You receive a 6-slot sack. Go to Hollowshade Moor and kill Owlbear Cubs until you have 6 Fatty Owlbear Meat. Combine and return the Sack of Owlbear Meat to Cook Yalkiin.

    Cook Yalkiin opens the bag and immediately begins to slice the meat into thin sheets. He throws the meat on a few slices of bread and wraps the whole thing up with a hand full of vegetables. 'Here you go, friend!' He says as he hands you what appears to be a lunch bag. 'Joharr should love these sandwiches! The meat that you brought us was great. If you ever need a job as a butcher, just let us know. Take care and tell Joharr I said hello.'

    Your faction standing with Guardians of Shar Vahl got better.
    You gain experience!!

    You receive a Bag of Food. Take the Bag of Food back to Taruun Joharr. As usual, make sure that you have a container slot free.

    Taruun Joharr takes the bag and takes a huge bite of the sandwich. 'This sandwich is almost worth the wait.' He says as he rubs the crumbs from his mouth. 'I hope that you've been practicin' with those daggers. Elder Ternq came by while you were away. He stated that I, well... you... need to go scout the caves around the thicket. Gather the skulls of any Shak Dratha that you may... um... run into while you scout. Once you've filled this backpack, return it to me and I'll fill out a report for Ternq.'

    Your faction standing with Taruun got better.
    You gain experience!!

    You receive a Worn Scoutpack, a 6-slot LORE size SMALL container. Head to Shadeweaver's Thicket and kill Shak Dratha, particularly Shak Dratha Senthiens in the upper to middle caverns, or the Shak Dratha Assassins and Raiders outside the caves. Collect 6 Shak Dratha Skulls. Combine them in the bag to craft a Pack of Skulls, which you should return to Taruun Joharr.

    Taruun Joharr says 'Very good, ______! Elder Ternq will be very pleased with the results of your patrol. Take this regional status report to him and see if he has anything else for you to do. Your skill as a hunter is really starting to show. You can keep the daggers that I gave you. Make good use of them. I'm sure that you're going to be too busy to come back this way for a bit. Take care.'

    Your faction standing with Taruun got better.
    You gain experience!!

    You receive a Regional Status Report, which you should give to Elder Taruun Ternq, who can be found on top of the 3-story building by the south gate.

    Elder Taruun Ternq says 'I see that Joharr introduced you to our cavern dwelling friends. This report shows that you were very successful on your last patrol. Your progress as a Taruun is most pleasing. You have shown us that you are ready to advance to the level of apprentice. I will send someone for your new cloak in a moment. While I am doing that, please use this bowl to prepare some spicy fish stew and take it to Kerr Tiparr in the Hollowshade outpost. It's not often that they get good food out there. If you don't remember the recipe, just ask cook Mylis. When you are done, please return with your old cloak and the empty pot. Always remember... Service to the community should always precede any thoughts of personal advancement.'

    Your faction standing with Taruun got better.
    You gain experience!!

    You receive a LORE, NO DROP Large Stewing Pot.

    You say, 'What spicy fish stew?'

    Cook Mylis says 'Ohhh, I love fish stew and it's fairly simple to make. If you're looking to make a large pot of it, you'll want to be sure that you have enough ingredients ready from the start. Gather up a flask of water, a jug of sauce, some spices and two wetfang steaks. Cook them in an oven in a large stewing pot. For being so foul, those wetfangs sure taste good. Throw all of that in to simmer for a bit and you're ready to go!'

    Kill Large Wetfangs at the big lake in the Paludal Caverns for the steaks.

    The recipe is trivial at <= 79 Baking. Hand the Pot of Spicy Fish Stew (LORE, NO DROP) in to Kerr Tiparr who returns to you an Empty Stew Bowl (LORE, NO DROP) which you then give with your Cloak of the Taruun Recruit to Ternq.

    Elder Taruun Ternq says 'Very well done, ______. Take this cloak and wear it with pride. May it keep your silhouette hidden from our enemies and keep you safe from those things that may walk in shadows darker than ours. Your work is being noticed, young Taruun. Please keep a clear eye on the path that lies before you. Speak to Elam Arruk when you are ready to continue your training. You will need only to show him the cloak that I just gave you. He will know how to instruct you from there. Be well.'

    Elder Taruun Ternq shouts 'Hear me fellow Vah Shir! The Taruun have seen fit to escalate citizen ______ to the rank of apprentice. He grows in strength and wisdom daily. We are proud as should you all be. May this student of our ways continue to progress and live worthy of our noble heritage.'

    Your faction standing with Taruun got better.
    You gain experience!

    You receive a Cloak of the Taruun Apprentice.

    I finally got all the fatty owlbear meat to fill the Bloody Cloth bag. For some reason it won't combine. Has anyone experienced this? I did a bug report in the game. Reading ahead at Yatima's site is the Journeyman cloak really possible if you don't have the other four characters of your own?
