|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the fourth 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 'Well those Shambling Mound Branches you brought back earlier really has my interest captured. There is certainly more afoot here than I [initially thought].'
You say, 'Initially thought?'
Akins says 'I made the assumption that the shambling mounds were animated by the spirits of the restless dead. Now that this doesn't appear to be the case, I am left with even more questions than before. Head back deeper into the marsh and see if there are other walking plants. These might contain even more powerful traces of the magic that created the shambling mounds.'
You have been assigned the task 'Dead Wood: Treants'.
Head to Blightfire Moors to hunt treants at +750, +700. You need to kill 6 of either Rotwood Saplings or Rotwood Treants and loot four Treant Wood Hearts. Once you have everything head back to Akins and hand them in to complete the task.
Once again, Akins carefully examines the plant remnants you brought him, sniffing and evening chewing on them for a bit. Spitting out some pieces he explains that indeed, the treants are animated by the very same magic as were the shambling mounds but seem to contain much more of the same magic, as if they were closer to the source. He goes on to explain that it is not necromantic magic but something even darker, angrier. . . as if someone was exacting a deep seated thirst for [revenge].
You receive 12 platinum.
You gain experience!!
This opens the next task in the series, available from Akins.
