This is a sub-task whose purpose is to update a step in a grand task, 'The Invasion of the Defilers'. It begins automatically with Valthun Woodswatcher in the Kirathas village of the Hills of Shade.

You say, 'Hail, Valthun Woodswatcher'

Valthun Woodswatcher says 'Yes what is it? Can't you see I'm busy? My daughter [Amber] has gone missing again. Curse that girl and her wanderlust! Doesn't she know that strange things have been seen wandering the woods!'

You say, 'Amber?'

You have been assigned the task 'The Invasion of the Defilers'.

You have been assigned the task 'Seeking Amber'.

Valthun Woodswatcher says 'No doubt she's gone off to wander in the forest again. If you see her tell her to return to Kirathas at once!'


Valthun's only child is named Amber. She is young and apparently free-spirited. Her father has asked you to discover why she has ben spending so little time in the village, especially with the apparent encroachment of some sort of dangerous invaders.


Seek Amber by the large Neglum tree to the east and a bit north of the village. (0/1) - Hills of Shade

Valthun told you that Amber has been known to stand near the old Neglum and stare out across the hills. He suggested that you leave town by the eastern road that leaves from the north side of the village to find her.

Amber is located at +620, +321, +80. Upon approach, Amber spawns.

Your task 'Seeking Amber' has been updated.

Speak to Amber (0/1) - Hills of Shade

You say, 'Hail, Amber'

Amber says 'Oh, it's you! You startled me, like wolf startles the crow. At least you're not one of . . . nevermind. I suppose father is worried about me. Why else would he send you out here? Did he bid you to ask me to [return]?'

You say, 'Yes, he bade me ask you to return.'

Your task 'Seeking Amber' has been updated.

Amber says 'Father can be so over protective. Tell him that I shall return soon.'

Speak with Valthun to tell him what you have learned. (0/1) - Hills of Shade

You say, 'Hail, Valthun Woodswatcher'

Your task 'Seeking Amber' has been updated.

Valthun Woodswatcher says 'She was where? I knew it, out in the woods again. She must have some reason for spending so much time out there. I'll have to get to the bottom of this. Perhaps one of her friends in town can tell us what she's been up to.'

Speak with Amber's friends' to see where she might have gone. (0/1) - Hills of Shade

There are a few low level 'named' Kirathas NPCs in the village. Among them, Aimilia and Della. Which "friend" gives the update seems to be random. A response similar to this should update this step:

You say, 'What has Amber been up to?'

Aimilia says 'Yes I know Amber. I don't know what she's been up to lately but she seems so happy! I suspect she's been sneaking off into the woods with one of those handsome young scouts!'

Della says 'I'm worried about Amber. I know she's capable and all that, but I don't think she should be spending so much time away from the village. It seems to please her well enough, but the hills have grown dangerous lately. Go make sure she's safe, will you? You'll probably be able to find her near the great tree. It is north and east of here.'

Loaris says 'No, I'm afraid I don't know where she's been.'

Snowflower says 'I saw her preparing to head out of the village, but don't know where she was going.'

Belreg says 'I'm worried about Amber. I know she's capable and all that, but I don't think she should be spending so much time away from the village. It seems to please her well enough, but the hills have grown dangerous lately. Go make sure she's safe, will you? You'll probably be able to find her near the great tree. It is north and east of here.'

Your task 'Seeking Amber' has been updated.

Speak with Valthun to tell him what you have learned. (0/1) - Hills of Shade

You say, 'Hail, Valthun Woodswatcher'

Your task 'Seeking Amber' has been updated.

Your task 'The Invasion of the Defilers' has been updated.

You have assuaged Valthun's curiosity for now. He has more pressing matters to worry about.

You have been assigned the task 'Testing the Invaders'.

Valthun Woodswatcher says 'I am pleased that she is happy, and very angry with her for risking her life with such foolishness. There is little point to being happy if doing so gets you killed. If she is indeed headed home as she said, then it is not too soon. We have sent scouts to investigate the strangers to the north east. They would certainly welcome your assistance. See if you can catch up to them and lend them aid. Be warned, our scouts will not be easy to locate. Head out of Kirathas by the eastern path and see the scouts that guard that path, they will send you onward.'

This completes this sub-task and updates a step in the grand task, 'The Invasion of the Defilers'. The next task in the series, 'Testing the Invaders', begins automatically.

You just need to 'amber' to any of Ambers' friends. I did it on 4 characters at once, and it seems random per character which NPC will give you an update for that character's quest. It's not that each friend has one "charge" of updating the quest either, it seems your character is just assigned one friend that will give you the update. Felwin also works.

After doing this on 2 different toons, I can confirm that you get the update after speaking to *any* three of the named mobs around the village. Don't forget your Eyes of Kirathis, 52pp from the Mysterious Stranger. Makes you con warmly to all villagers.

This is one stupid quest. You have to run around hailing (once you can find them) five PCs. have done it in every order possible, still no update. Done it with 5 chars, can't get update on sixth in over hour...then BAM updates on one of the mobs. Another fine job by SoE

BRING a TRACKER! Two of the mobs roam

The information here is basically correct, with one exception to get the update for speak to her friend's: you need to speak with Loaris, who is in the the far south east building and yes "Then invasion of the defilers" is an auto given task.
