This task is the fifth in a series of 12. At the end of the previous task, Ciodaru says:

Ciodaru says 'Thank Tunare you were in time. You have been a great help. If you are ready, we can work on the [food] for her gift.'

You say, 'Food!'

Ciodaru says 'Thank you. Go to Cook Kosey in Crescent Reach. I hear that he is the best cook around.'

A task selection window appears with this task and his previous tasks.

You have been assigned the task 'Ciodaru's Third Gift'.



Speak with Cook Kosey in Crescent Reach 0/1 (Crescent Reach)

Take this note and get some fresh windwillow acorns and some earthen ooze. Only the freshes will do, so get it directly from the trees. After you have seen how they look, you can use some that have fallen from the trees, but for your first time, get them fresh. If you feel that you do not have the skills to make the acorns yourself, you can give the parts to me, pay me ten platinum, and I will make it for you.'

Ciodaru and Kathryn #5: Ciodaru's Third Gift
This task is the fifth in a series of twelve. It begins with Ciodaru in Goru`kar Mesa (located in the Minohten camp near spider cave at the northern edge of the camp: -580, +1140).

This is a "solo" task involving tradeskills. OPTIONALLY, the combine may be made by an NPC.


After completing previous task for protecting Kathryn;
[Sat Jan 28 21:58:25 2012] Ciodaru says 'Thank Tunare you were in time. You have been a great help. If you are ready, we can work on the [food] for her gift.'

You say, 'I am ready to make the food gift for Kathryn'

Ciodaru says 'Thank you. Go to Cook Kosey in Crescent Reach. I hear that he is the best cook around.'

You have been assigned the task 'Ciodaru's Third Gift'.

________________________________________

Speak with Cook Kosey in Crescent Reach

Head to the second floor of the City of Crescent Reach and see Cook Kosey [ Baking Supplies ]. (located in the Redloe Bakery. Take elevator to second floor then up stairs to raised area with tradeskill vendors and NPCs -1450, -1550).

Targeted (Merchant): Cook Kosey

You say, 'Hail, Cook Kosey'

Your task 'Ciodaru's Third Gift' has been updated.

Cook Kosey says 'Ciodaru is an odd fellow is he not? But he is definitely nice enough, nice enough for sure. I will be glad to help him with some spiced windwillow acorns. Take this note and get some fresh windwillow acorns and some earthen ooze. Only the freshes will do, so get it directly from the trees. After you have seen how they look, you can use some that have fallen from the trees, but for your first time, get them fresh. If you feel that you do not have the skills to make the acorns yourself, you can give the parts to me, pay me ten platinum, and I will make it for you.'

You receive Spiced Wind Willow Acorn Recipe. (looks like a scroll) This is the recipe for the item that you need to make.
Item: Spiced Wind Willow Acorn Recipe
Description
No Trade
Race: None Size: TINY

Scroll Contents
Spiced Windwillow Acorn
4 Windwillow Acorns
1 cup of Earthen Ooze Slime
1 pinch of Spices
1 pinch of garlic
1 stick of butter
In your oven, start with the wind willow acorns, then add some slime from and earthan ooze. While this may sound unpalatable, it actually brings out the flavor in the Acorns. Once the liquid in the ooze has cooked off, add butter, spices and garlic. Cook until most of the butter is cooked away.

________________________________________

Loot 4 Windwillow Acorn
Loot 1 Earthen Ooze Slime

OBJECTIVE: Obtain windwillow acorns and some earthen ooze slime from beings in Goru’Kar Mesa. Also you will need to acquire spices, butter and garlic, but you can acquire these in any method you prefer.

Loot 4 Windwillow Acorn

Loot from a protector of the windwillow or a tender of the windwillow in Goru`kar Mesa. (located around the outside of Windwillow which is in the center of Goru`kar Mesa. entrance is located -1180, -140)

These acorns can be foraged but those foraged prior to start of task do not update this task. Do acorns foraged during this task update the requirement? Acorns foraged and those looted will stack together. Technically, foraged acorns can be used in the combine or given to Posey. Extra acorns can be sold to Posey for around 5 copper pieces. Essentially, there is no reason to stockpile these acorns because the quest will only update when acquiring acorns after the task has been assigned.

Your faction standing with Nymphs of the Windwillow got worse.
Your faction standing with Minohten got worse.
Your faction standing with Nymphs of the Darkwater got better.
You gain party experience!!
a protector of the windwillow's corpse stops moving.
You have slain a protector of the windwillow!

Loot 1 Earthen Ooze Slime

Loot from an earthen ooze in Goru`kar Mesa. (located in the Earthen Ooze caves at the northwest end of the Minohten camp. -550,1500)

As a Half Elven Paladin of Tunare, I started off as Indifferently with both of the factions. I killed one Willowisp and dropped to Apprehensively. After killing 5-7 more Treants I stayed at the Apprehensively faction level. So if youre really worried about being KoS to either one, dont be. If anything you may kill Tuffiens to get back your faction.

[Mon Nov 19 00:28:36 2007] You say, 'food'
You have been assigned the task "Ciodaru's Third Gift"
Ciodaru says "Thank you. Go to Cook Kosey in Cresent Reach. I hear that

he is the best cook around."

Cook Kosey is at -1440, -1540, 34 in Cresent Reach

You say "Hail, Cook Kosey"

Cook Kosey says "Ciodaru is an odd fellow is he not? But he is

definitely nice enough, nice enough for sure. I will be glad to help him

with some spiced windwillow acorns. Take this note and get some fresh

windwillow acorns and some earthen ooze. Only the freshes <note

mispelling> will do, so get it directly from the trees. After you have

seen how they look, you can use some that have fallen from the trees,

but for your first time, get them fresh. If you feel that you do not

have the skills to make the acorns yourself, you can give the parts to

me, pay me ten platinum, and I will make it for you."

Receive: Spiced Wind Willow Acorn Recipe (Item 97750)

Spiced Windwillow Acorn
4 Windwillow Acorns
1 cup of Earthen Ooze Slime
1 pinch of Spices
1 pinch of garlic
1 stick of butter
(more text that can be paraphrased as: combine all in Oven)

Results in: Spiced Wind Willow Acorns (Item 97744)
Trivial: 190


Windwillow Acorns drop from "a protector of the windwillow" and "a

tender of the windwillow" (both treants) in center of Goru'kar Mesa.

Evidently the acorns are also groundspawn, but to have the task update

they must be looted. There are faction hits, but I didn't capture them.

The faction losses seem to be very minor as everyone remains "kindly" no

matter what you do.

Earthen Earth Slime drop from "an earthen ooze" which can be found in

caves nearest Ciodaru in the Mesa. Cave entrance LOC: -540, 1500, 90.

Spices, Garlic and Butter can all be purchased from the Baking Supplies

vendor standing next to Kosey (or maybe it was Cook Kosey himself?), and

there's an oven right there too.

Speak with Kosey Crescent Reach
Loot 4 Windwillow Acorn Goru'kar Mesa
Loot 1 Earthen Ooze Slime Goru'kar Mesa
Create 1 Spiced Wind Willow Acorns using Tradeskills Goru'kar Mesa
Deliver 1 Spiced Wind Willow Acorns to Ciodaru Goru'kar Mesa

(Opt) Deliver 4 Windwillow Acorns to Kosey Crescent Reach
(Opt) Deliver 1 Earthen Ooze Slime to Kosey Crescent Reach
(Opt) Deliver 1 Spices to Kosey Crescent Reach
(Opt) Deliver 1 Butter to Kosey Crescent Reach
(Opt) Deliver 1 Garlic to Kosey Crescent Reach
<Note: Deliver 10 plat omitted, but presumably required>
(opt)??? <Presumably the Deliver to Ciodaru step ?>


At hand in:
Ciodaru says: "These smell devine. Thank you. Keep it for now as I will

have you make a box of gifts to give to her. The next item to get for

her is a [dress]. A forest green would be devine on her.

Ciodaru like the gift that you made.
You gain experience!!


"Dress" triggers the next set of tasks.

Note that *per the initial text* you should be able to use groundspawn

acorns for the recipe. The loot requirement is stricly for the task

update while doing the quest.

The final optional step is "(Opt) Deliver 10 Platinum Pieces to Kosey" (it's available after handing him all the combine items)

Give him 10pp and the "Create 1 Spiced Wind Willow Acorns using tradeskill" step is marked as complete and the normal deliver option becomes available. I had the skill to do this combine, but thought I'd see what happened ;)

Speak to Kosey- Head the the 2nd floor of Crescent Reach and hail Cook Kosey
Loot 4 Windwillow Acorns- Back in the Mesa, kill the treant models ("a protector of the windwillow" and "a a tender of the windwillow") until you loot 4 Windwillow Acorns. Note that the foraged or ground spawned acorns will NOT count towards your loot count.
Loot 1 Earthen Ooze Slime- These drop from the "an earthen ooze" mobs behind the minohten camp in the caves.
Create 1 Spiced Windwillow Acorns- First make a "butter" (a diary spoon, a rennet, and a bottle of milk in a mixing bowl). then combine the butter with store bought "garlic" and "spices" and the looted acorns and slime in an oven to create the final product. The trivial for the final combine is 190 baking.
Deliver 1 Spiced Windwillow Acorns to Ciodaruu- Hand the creation to the quest giver to finish the task.

The following steps are the optional alternative to creating the items on your own. You still need to hail the cook and loot the 4 acorns and the 1 slime to unlock these.
(Opt) Deliver 4 Windwillow Acorns to Kosey
(Opt) Deliver 1 Earthen Ooze Slime to Kosey
(Opt) Deliver 1 Spices to Kosey
(Opt) Deliver 1 Butter to Kosey
(Opt) Deliver 1 Garlic to Kosey
(Opt) ???
- I'm assuming this one is paying Kosey the 10pp to combine them as the other npc's charged in the previous steps.

I will post the stats on the earring from this step as soon as I do the turn in to Ciodaruu.

The exact name of the quest is Ciodaru's Third Gift.

But there's something I don't understand. This is supposed to give you positive Minohten faction, but this, like the 2nd, requires you to kill and loot the corpses of mobs that give you bad Minohten and Windwillow faction. First wisps, now tender and protectors of the windwillow for the acorns.

This is a little twisted... not only does it make no sense for the faction hits and misses, as it were... but it makes no sense in regard to the storyline of the quest. The satyr is supposed to be trying to win the love of a nymph, so he makes her gifts out of the body parts of her slain companions-in-nature??

Wasn't there a horror movie like that?

Unfortunately the ground spawns don't advance the quest.
