You say, 'Hail, Gibi Bilgum'

Gibi Bilgum says 'Get a load of my sister over yonder. She doesn't know when to give up the swashbuckling. Idiocy is more like it. She's not the only one around here with some [tasks] that need... well, tasking. You might say I'm a taskmaster, only without the whip. I'm not sure how to even use a whip though, so maybe it's for the best.'

You say, 'What tasks?'

A task window pops up offering various tasks.

You have been assigned the task 'They're a Bit Short'.

They might as well call you a scout, because you'll be going out and doing some scouting on some very high-profile sites. These sites are rumored to be burial grounds for priests of an ancient civilization, but there is not much information on them than that. Enough delay, get going and explore the single dwarven hut along the path in the north.

[This task begins in Butcherblock Mountains.]

Follow the path north until you see "Task Stage Complete," around where Guard Sornn and Guard Norin are guarding the hut at +2075, +405.

If your findings are correct, there's nothing around there that even remotely suggests an ancient burial ground. It's unfortunate, but there's one more spot you need to check before we give up all hope. Go ahead and explore the large rock tower on goblin isle. Be careful, if there is a burial ground, there's no telling what kind of creatures lurk nearby.

Head to the goblin island in the Ocean of Tears and find the area with all the goblin shaman around it (/loc?).

It's unfortunate that you weren't able to find any remnants at all. Perhaps there will be more to find next time. In the meantime, you need to report your findings, so speak with Tarerd Gahar. That is all.

Head to the Plane of Knowledge.

The direction to someone related to your current Task has been marked on your compass.

Tarerd Gahar is at one of the reflection pools in the "good" part of town (/loc?).

You say, 'Hail, Tarerd Gahar'

The ideal of burial grounds nearby is one that can not be easily overlooked. That's exactly why you were sent to check these areas out. Sadly none of them turned out to be the rumored burial grounds, but there's plenty more land to cover, so you maybe called upon again. You'll be recieving some payment, mostly for your time investment, but partially for the danger involved. Good job.

You receive 3 copper .
You receive 3 silver .
You receive 4 gold .
You receive 1 platinum .
You gain experience!!

Tarerd Gahar says 'Thanks for contacting me, ______. Your information on this matter has been most useful.'

Need /loc of Gibi, other missing /locs, names for each task stage, minimum level required to get quest, and any other missing information.

Gibi no longer issues this task. It is given by Alun Bilgum. I've been all over the OoT and have yet to trigger "Task Stage Complete." It could be that this task is broken, but I have not received any response from my petition. Perhaps it is fixed and I just haven't found the right "spot."

I get told "I don't have any tasks suitable to one of your experience" as a 10th Cleric.
Hack and slash is fine for trolls and ogres but the rest of us should use the best weapon we were given...our BRAIN.
