There are six islands in Blackfeather Roost, each with its own requirements for access (you can port from island to island after completing a short task for each):

- The Base (entered from Goru'kar Mesa)
- The First Ledge (see this task)
- The Harpy Grove (complete this task)
- The Harpy Cliffs (see this task)
- The Harpy Mesa (see this task)
- The Royal Throne (see this task)

At the end of "Blackfeather Roost, The Ledge":

Fenith says 'So you managed to feed the griffon and keep all your fingers?! Huh! Well, don't try feeding that same stale treat to the next griffon you encounter -- it won't work. Each griffon likes a different treat and it's up to you to find it. If you like, I can give you a [hint] of what the next griffon has a taste for.'

You say, 'Give me a hint'

Fenith says 'If you want to try your luck a second time you can feed the griffon on the next ledge over. Like I said each griffon likes a different type of treat so for him you'll need to combine bear meat and snake meat along with some spider eggs and snake sheddings in this Griffon Treat Kit if you want to win his friendship. Good luck to you, ____, but I still think you're crazy as a loon.'

You receive Fenith's Griffon Treat Kit, a 4 slot container.

Give the treat to the Griffon on the first ledge 0/1 (Blackfeather Roost)

The treat is made by combining the 4 items in the Treat Kit...

Snake Meat
Bear Meat
Spider Eggs
Snake Sheddings

All can be hunted/foraged in the area close to Fenith (spiders spawn inside the bear caves - they are aggro with the bears, so you may have to clear the area of bears first). Give it to "a tame griffon" on the 1st ledge. You reach this ledge by clicking on the nest of the griffon close to Fenith.

The reward is experience and the ability to use the 2nd griffon nest in order to reach the harpy grove.

Some one really needs to go through the ratings on all of these quests, this one is rated excellent and yet the only thing you get out of it is advancement to the next level, no XP, plat or other reward....

While given by a different NPC, the related quests should at least show the 3rd task in the series (Blackfeather Roost -- Travel to the Harpy Cliffs).

Snake shedding is droped by snakes, its not just a forage.

Spiders are in the cave system on the side. Lots of bears in the cave and they are non agro but they love to kill those spiders. It's tough to kill them before the bears do. At least for my 67 necro.

I was also bugged on this quest--I got the treat but the griffon would just give it back to me. I tried leaving the zone and coming back, camping out and back in, etc. What solved it eventually for me was just go back to Fenith and get the first treat quest from him again. Then handing in the treat worked. Don't ask why, but it did. Again, I didn't redo the first quest, I just got it assigned to me by Fenith. Hope this works for others.

I can confirm this, thanks! If you've created the second treat and the griffin won't take it, go back to Fanith and request the first task again. After accepting it, return to the second griffin. He should take the treat now.

You DON'T have to do the first quest over, just have it your quest tool.

A strange way to fix it, but it works. /shrug. Thanks for the tip, Docalla!

This fix does not work with the second level griffon, only the first. My hubby tried it repeatedly since he too ran into this bug today. Either that, or it worked, Sony patched, and the previous work-around was history. =( We've petitioned.

I have also tried to give this to the second griff and got it back.

I also tried hailing, or not hailing the Fenith between combine and hand in with no luck.

But not for very long because the bears attack them.

From Goru'kar Mesa take your first right into the area that has the 5 rooms coming off of it. Download maps man. You shouldn't need help with something this easy. I found them within a couple minutes of getting the quest by simple exploration. You took more effort to come here and post than you did running around looking, or you would have found them with ease all on your own.

This quest is fairly easy to complete..all you really need to get in Blackfeather roost is the snake sheddings..the Meats and the spider egg can be gotten anywhere making this quest very easy.
