|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the third task in a series of six. The tasks must be completed in order, and may be repeated after completion.
Upon completing the previous task, speak with Akins again:
You say, 'Hail, Akins'
Akins says 'Vasha, _____. Since you seem just as eager as me to explore all things that go bump in the night! Goodie! Well I have a new area that might interest you. It seems that in Blightfire Moors is an area that appears to be quite scary that just thinking about it gives me the [shivers]!'
You say, 'Shivers?'
Akins says 'Within the moors is a true marsh, draped in tendrils of swirling fog and crawling with all manner of creepy creatures including some sort of walking shrub. Now I have a [theory] that might explain this.'
You say, 'What theory?'
Akins says 'By my diligence and gift of nosiness, I have learned that the marsh emanates some sort of powerful magic. I believe that these walking bushes might be the restless spirits of the living who are somehow bound to this location. Go there and find these walking bushes. Then bring me back some samples of wood from them. I will be able to deduce just what may be responsible for this condition. Hurry! I can hardly contain my excitement at figuring this out!'
You have been assigned the task 'Dead Wood: The Shambling Mounds'.
Head out to Blightfire Moors and kill 12 shambling mounds. You also need to loot 4 Shambling Mound Branches. The "shambling mounds" can be any of:
a hedge devil
a baleful briar
a howling briar
a briar thorn
a hedge devil and a baleful briar are confirmed to drop the Shambling Mound Branch. The others likely do as well. Once you have everything turn over the 4 Shambling Mound Branch to Akins.
You pile the branches you retrieved upon Akin's desk. He examines each one by holding it up to the light and even chewing on them a bit. Shaking his head he turns to you with a puzzled look and explains that the branches emanate an ancient and powerful magic but that he's not certain it is related to spirits of the deceased.
You receive 7 platinum.
You gain experience!!
This opens the next task in the series, available from Akins.
