|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group mission is the first in a series of five. It begins with Researcher Higgins (click for map image), a gnome found in Barren Coast at /location 230, -90 (sitting inside a wagon). He will not talk to you at dubious faction. He will give the task at indifferent+ (you can use sneak, illusions, or faction spells to talk to him).
You say, 'Hail, Researcher Higgins'
Researcher Higgins says 'Oh, hello there, _____, I didn't see you standing there. I've been quite preoccupied with my studies of the inhabitants of Monkey Rock and what has happened to them. Would you care to help me [investigate the inhabitants] of Monkey Rock?'
You say, 'I will investigate the inhabitants'
You have been assigned the task 'The Wild Island'.
Researcher Higgins has heard of an island that is completely devoid of human life, and has been taken over by wild creatures. He is interested in studying the creatures of this island that have evolved without human contact and wishes to discover why the island has been abandoned for so long. Travel to Monkey Rock and bring back creature samples and any clues that you can find.
Purchase tickets to Monkey Rock and catch the boat 0/1 (Barren Coast)
You can buy a ticket from any of the Dockmasters, or from Harbormaster Blumble:
Harbormaster Blumble says 'Well hail! You look well. In case you don't know me or my job, I am the one in charge of all of the ticket masters on the Barren Coast. It is from me, or any of my agents, that you can purchase a ticket to ride on any of the fine boats in the Freetide Cartel fleet, and even the not-so-fine ships of the others that sail out of this area. You see, we have a good deal going with the, um, unseemly folks that run a ship out of the northern coast. They get part of the money and in return they rarely kill any of their passengers. As for the undead, they are so used to doing things a certain way that even now they still do what I ask them to. It's a wonderful thing!'
Dockmaster Weatherby says 'You look like you've been at sea on a dangerous mission for a while? Perhaps you plan to head back out, in which case you're going to need to purchase another ticket before boarding the Isabeau.'
Buy a "Seafarer's Ticket: Monkey Rock" from any of the Dockmasters along the coastline and keep it in your inventory. When the ship docks, step onto it and wait for it to sail out to the Buried Sea. Upon zoning, you'll find yourself in an instanced version of the island. (Next to you is a rowboat that serves as your zone-out.)
Locate 5 Gorilla Remains 0/5 (Monkey Rock)
Locate 5 Jaguar Remains 0/5 (Monkey Rock)
Locate 5 Raptor Remains 0/5 (Monkey Rock)
Locate 5 Python Remains 0/5 (Monkey Rock)
Investigate the Island inhabitants 0/40 (Monkey Rock)
You don't have to loot anything here; just kill mobs until you've updated all of the above task steps ("remains" steps are random upon kills).
Report back to Researcher Higgins 0/1 (Barren Coast)
Near the zone-in area is a rowboat that you can click to port you back to the Buried Sea:
You get into the longboat and row out. You are quickly picked up by one of the many merchant ships sailing the waters of the Buried Sea and delivered safely to the dock on Jardel's Hook...
Head back to Researcher Higgins in Barren Coast, and hail him:
Researcher Higgins accepts the remains from you and places them in the cart, stating that he will need some more time to study them, but in the meantime, he needs you to [investigate] a few other things on the island.
- Doubloons (varies)
- Faction with Blacksail Smugglers (+15)
