|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the sixth of nine tasks in a quest arc for a +25 Purity augmentation. It begins with Dwinn Axeheaver who can be found in the Loping Plains in the Fang Breakers camp near the zone-in from the Steamfont Mountains at -1407, -3264. At the end of the previous task:
Dwerin Axeheaver says 'An Ambush? Ye managed to fight yer way free of it I see. Good Work! But the orcs mentioning those Shadowmane has me concerned. What significance does the Shadowmane attack on the orcs have? Are these orcs infected with the curse of lycanthropy? It would surely explain much that we've been investigating. If that is true though, it brings up a new [question].'
You say, 'A new question?'
Dwinn Axeheaver says 'If the orcs have gained their power from lycanthropy, what use do they have for the crystals we have been researching. We must have one of those crystals to examine. In the cliffs below us are several crystal mines. There are minotaurs in the mines, but they must trade with the orcs to provide them with these crystals. I need you to go into these mines and recover one of the black crystals for me.'
You have been assigned the task 'The Black Crystal'.
Bring Dwinn a black crystal from the mines.
Loot a Black Crystal, a drop from minotaurs in the mines. The item is pre-lootable.
Dwinn Axeheaver examines the crystal closely, squinting at it and tapping on it with his finger. 'Well Bozacks, this doesn't look like anything special. How do the orcs actually get any benefit from these rocks. Might be they just use them to bash things and we've been getting a head of ourselves. We need more '[information] about these.'
You say, 'Information?'
Dwinn Axeheaver says 'Take that crystal with you and go back to the ambush spot. See if you can turn the tables and force those orcs to tell you how to use the crystal. Might even be a good idea to beat them over the head with it, see if it wakes the rock up.'
Search out the orcs who ambushed you
See if you can get any information out of the orcs
Kill all four orcs this time.
Return to Dwinn and tell him what you found from the orcs
You say, 'Hail, Dwinn Axeheaver'
Dwinn Axeheaver says 'Did you find anything [new]? Yer back and still have the rock so things couldn't have gone too badly.'
Completion of this task leads into a seventh task in the series.
