Scribe Choone may be found by the Ak'anon Strike Force vendors and bankers at +3664, -2553, 30.

You say, 'Hail, Scribe Choone'

Scribe Choone says 'Hello there, friend. Would you happen to have a moment to speak with me about a [matter] of some importance?'

You say, 'What matter?'

Scribe Choone says 'First, allow me to introduce myself. I am Scribe Choone, one of Gimblefixx's gatherers of information. We left the caravan to investigate the rumors of a minotaur fortress in this region. Six of us went out, but only I made it back, for we were soon ambushed by angry minotaurs. The one they called Higoren was especially [brutal], seeming to take a fair amount of pleasure as he struck us down one at a time.'

You say, 'Brutal?'

Scribe Choone says 'We were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and were ill-equipped to fight. I barely escaped. Five good gnomes died to gain access to the minotaur lands, and by rights those deaths shall not have been for naught. What advance money Gimblefixx gave me to finish my reporting, I'll grant to you if you'll thin out the minotaur herd and bring me the tail of Higoren. Is that a [deal]?'

You say, 'It's a deal.'

You have been assigned the task 'Kicking Tail'.

Killing ten minotaurs should make it easier for Choone to do his work 0/10 (Dragonscale Hills)

Killing the minotaur Higoren will put Choone more at ease. 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Take Higoren's tail for proof of his demise. 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Deliver the tail to Choone. 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

You receive a Mask of the Mighty Minotaur.

The Tail, CANNOT be preloted, you must take task before, or item will be useless.

Quest time with nice level tank is 15 mins. (Runing to zone, and back to NPC included)

I got the tail at level 70 with a couple of friends but could not get the task. The minotaurs are blue and white with one or two yellow warriors to me and Higoren is yellow. Was blue to a 73rd level, which makes him 71 or 72.
I think requiring this for a 75th level player is a little high.
Pathing here is off so be right up on him when you engage. Didnt notice any resists.
The quest NPC is in the NE corner of the zone near the zone in from AK' Anon, on your left as you zone in. He is near Derek Wolfblood.
Location: 3666.63, -2547.69, 29.07

Soloed with my 83 Wiz and Merc Cleric. Backed way up on rock wall behind him and blasted with my best nukes. No adds aggroed from back there. Merc did one heal on me was all. 5 nukes took him down in about 1 minute. Looted and gated - was easy.
Level requirement!?!

WHY would they make this quest with a level requirement of 75, when the mask requires only a level 65? Just wondering...

New quest NPC by the Ak'anon strike force vendors +banker at Location 3665.39, -2552.93, 28.71

[Sat Nov 29 18:34:41 2008] You say, 'Hail, Scribe Choone'
[Sat Nov 29 18:34:41 2008] Scribe Choone says 'Hello there, friend. Would you happen to have a moment to speak with me about a [matter] of some importance?'
[Sat Nov 29 18:34:46 2008] You say, 'matter'
[Sat Nov 29 18:34:47 2008] Scribe Choone says 'First, allow me to introduce myself. I am Scribe Choone, one of Gimblefixx's gatherers of information.

[Sat Nov 29 18:34:57 2008] You say, 'brutal'
[Sat Nov 29 18:34:57 2008] Scribe Choone says 'We were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and were ill-equipped to fight. I barely escaped.

[Sat Nov 29 18:35:03 2008] You say, 'deal'
[Sat Nov 29 18:35:03 2008] You are not at the right level for this task. Note: Here is with a level 66 character

At level 85 saying Deal i received the quest: "Kicking Tail" Objective:
Killing ten minotaurs should make it easier for Choone to do his work -0/10 - Dragonscale hills
Killing the minotaur Higoren will put Choone more at ease. -0/1-Dragonscale hills
Take Higoren's tail for proof of his demise.-0/1-Dragonscale Hills
Deliver the tail to Choone -0/1-Dragonscale hills

Handing in the tail:
[Sat Nov 29 20:25:12 2008] Your task 'Kicking Tail' has been updated.
[Sat Nov 29 20:25:12 2008] Scribe Choone says 'Scribe Choone looks at you and smiles. 'You killed Higoren! The souls of my companions can now rest in peace. Thanks to your efforts, I'll be able to get around in the minotaur-held area a little easier now. Thank you so much. Here is your reward.''

Some more information
Found Higoren in the minotaur mines (NOT the fort as mentioned in the quest dialogue) at location -998.08, 3263.91, -242.46 He does NOT see invis.
Fight is straight forward, tries to run at low health. Drops 1 Higoren's Tail when killed. respawn time about 5 minutes

When agroed:
[Sat Nov 29 20:05:06 2008] You begin casting Sha's Legacy.
[Sat Nov 29 20:05:08 2008] Higoren says 'Higoren charges toward you, eager to spil your blood.'
When killed:
[Sat Nov 29 20:06:07 2008] Your faction standing with Minions of Meldrath could not possibly get any worse.
[Sat Nov 29 20:06:07 2008] Your faction standing with Brownie Rebels got better.
[Sat Nov 29 20:06:07 2008] You gain group leadership experience!
[Sat Nov 29 20:06:07 2008] You gain party experience!!
[Sat Nov 29 20:06:07 2008] Higoren's corpse says 'Higoren roars his last, and settles to the ground, dead.'


Does not have a reward yet, handing in the tail did not give me anything at this point. This quest is availble on the Test Server
