This task is the last in a series of six. It begins with Dorina in Goru'kar Mesa atop the Windwillow plateau with the other dryads. Upon completion of the previous task...

Dorina says 'What? He did not follow you? That spell he is under must be really strong. That alchemist must be a [charlatan]! I will have to take matters into my own hands then. That is, unless you want to [continue to help] me.'

You say, 'I will continue to help you'

Dorina says 'Go find Ethaniel and tell him you want the list of Items I asked from him before. He owes me.'

Find Scout Ethaniel in the Drakkin camp in the south area of Blightfire Moors.

You say, 'Hail, Scout Ethaniel'

Your task 'Dorina's Lament' has been updated.

Scout Ethaniel says 'Ah well yes. I guess I do owe her that much. You will need to go collect four honey samples from within Stone Hive. Only the ones in the room where they make magical honey will do. You will also need to collect some pollen from the jum-jum in their fields.'

Go to the Stone Hive.

Loot 4 Cultivated Jum-Jum Pollen (dropped randomly from any mob inside the building)

Loot 4 Honeycomb (dropped also from any mob)

Give Cultivated Jum-Jum Pollen to Dorina

Your task 'Dorina's Lament' has been updated.

Give Honeycombs to Dorina

Your task 'Dorina's Lament' has been updated.

Dorina mixes the pollen into the honey and blows lightly into the jar. Her breath sparkles as it mixes with the honey. 'Yes, I think this will do. Take this and give it to Simu with my apologies to him for the bad taste of the previous. Please protect him as he comes to me.'

Your task 'Dorina's Lament' has been updated.

Deliver 1 Soporific Honey to Simu

Simu says 'Well this certainly looks much better, and smells like honey. I'm willing to give it a try.' Simu sips the liquid. 'Wow, this is delectable, you say Dorina made this?' Simu gulps down the rest of the drink.'

Your task 'Dorina's Lament' has been updated.

Simu speaks in a monotone voice, 'Dorina wants me, must go to Dorina.'

Follow Simu to the top of the Mesa. He passed through bear territory, but wasn't attacked. Halfway on the path to the top a tuffein raider (approx. level 50-52) attacks.

a Tuffein raider says 'Die invader, die!'

Simu says 'Will these battles never end?'

Kill the raider. Pet classes should make sure that they call back their pet immediately after the fight, in case Simu used his AeE stun spell, to avoid that the pet attacks Simu.

Simu walks on, following the path to Dorina.

Dorina says 'Simu you have come to me! Thank you for bringing him back to me, here is your reward.'

Your task 'Dorina's Lament' has been updated.

You have succeeded in bringing Simu and Dorina together, but somehow your success feels a bit hollow.
You gain experience!!

Dorina says 'Ah Simu, I have broken the spell! You really do love me!'

Simu says 'Yes Dorina.'

Dorina says 'I knew that that nasty Naeema was wrong! You really do love me!'

Simu says 'Yes Dorina.'

Dorina's fist bursts into flame.
Dorina is surrounded by a thorny barrier.
Dorina's skin turns hard as diamond.

If your boxing this a huge time saver that worked for me. Have one toon hand Simu the potion and have only that toon follow him (I assume the others could follow but don't have them hand the potion in as I have heard this can cause task to bug). Once that toon has completed the task Simu will stay up top near Dorina for several minutes. Have your box toons hand simu the potion and they will complete the task without all having to follow him.

Ok, I did this task, with 2 others, and we all handed him the potion that she makes, all at once, which was a mistake! You have to do this task, as an individual, as in, if in a group, each potion has to be given to him, individually, when the others hold onto their potion, and run him over, and wait until Simu comes back to the Minohten camp, and restart it, by handing him the potion, again! 1-by-1! Basically, they need to set this up, so, if it does not show, that you have done the task, you should not be able to hand him the potion, no matter what, as in, from the start, if someone else has handed him the potion, he should reject the others, so you do not have to restart the task, completely over, which seems to be a waste of time, to me!

Does anyone know what to do if you accidentally killed Simu? Can you go get the honey comb and Cultivated Jum-Jum Pollen and re-turn it in, or would I have to re-do the whole quest or even whole line of quests again? If someone could inform me of this, that'd be wonderful, thank you.

I checked and I removed the quest to re-do it. It re gave me the quest, thankfully.

Was just wondering if anyone has done this quest, what is "Dorina's Lament"? I noticed in the scripting that at the end:

"Dorina's fist bursts into flame.
Dorina is surrounded by a thorny barrier.
Dorina's skin turns hard as diamond."

Is that the buff the item gives?

one other thing....

It's been awhile but I remember the lumber jack skit....laughed my **** off.

I sent in this quest's description and I somehow found it funny that immediately after she confessed her love to him, she buffed herself up for battle. So I kept those lines in the text, too.

She's in love with a person that does not love her back, and when she finally manages to get him, it's only because the potion has stripped him of any will of his own.

Those effects are spells that she is casting on herself, not anything that the quest reward gives; she's a druid and, well, casts druid spells =)

I have tried and the quest appears to be unrepeatable, also there are 6 steps total in the quest after the third where Dorina has you gather the items for the silkfang pouch (the one she makes) quest 4 is you make the silk fang pouch with 32 spider silks, recluse spider fang, 4 wolf canines, supple wolf skin and 5 large snake fangs (all are tradeable and believe the recipe has already been posted) Each step is a part of the quest so you must do each (trivs are 50) and turn in to Dorina who has you run the bag to Simu. You get the silkfang pouch as a reward for this quest not quest 3 though.
Repeatable?

Did anyone try if the Dorina's task series is repeatable? Would be great to get more than one aug...

would be nice if it were repeatable to get all 4 augments but Dorina might wonder what you're up to the second time around since you've already hooked her up with Simu, she has no need of your help.
