    This task is the first in a series of three that begins with Rupkerr (click for map image) is found in the safe area in the north-central part of Feerrott, the Dream at approximate location 1175, 1340.

    You say, 'Hail, Rupkerr'

    Rupkerr says 'It's such a relief to come across a friendly traveler. I was sent here to determine the whereabouts of a missing [expedition crew], and found myself quite lost in this jungle, exposed to all its dangers. My own search has been halted, due to [rumors] of wandering undead.'

    You say, 'A missing expedition crew?'

    Rupkerr says 'A group of my fellow frogloks ventured out this way ages ago, with the intention of exploring the Feerrott and collecting [information] on how the jungle has changed since our time in Innothule.'

    You say, 'What information?'

    Rupkerr says 'We haven't had a report back since they first ventured this way; many fear the worst. I'm afraid I can't navigate this terrain well on my own. A helping hand won't go unrewarded. What do you say; will you [help] me find my missing kin?'

    You say, 'I will help'

    Rupkerr says 'According to my findings, the expedition crew was traveling northeast through the Feerrott. See if you can locate the crew, or recover any information on their whereabouts.'

    You have been assigned the task 'An Expedition Gone Awry'.

    Find the missing froglok expeditionary force 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    In the far northeast part of the zone are the undead ruins. Note: This area is patrolled by numerous restless spirits, so you may need to do some clearing before you're able to proceed.

    Search the froglok corpses for proof that you have found the missing expeditionary force 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Loot a Tattered Expedition Journal from a froglok corpse (has a five minute respawn timer). If you have difficulty targetting it, use "/target a_froglok" and then "/open" their corpse.

    Defend yourself from the Lizardman Patroller 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    A lizardman patroller spawns here, but any patroller in the zone will update this step.

    Deliver the expedition journal to Rukperr 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    On turn-in:

    You have located the missing froglok expedition crew, only to find that they have perished for reasons unknown.

    Rupkerr says 'This journal you brought me belonged to Krupp, the expedition leader. You say you found it on his corpse? It's a shame so many of the pages are missing. I'm sure they hold clues as to what caused the expedition crew to perish.'

    Your faction standing with Dream Delvers got better.

    Did this tonight with my 3 box crew, and saw something interesting.... I went through about 20-22 corpses with no book, was starting to wonder if the mission was broken. Then I finally got a book from the next corpse. And then, the next two corpses also had books!!! So, is there code to say, make you wait for the books, but once they do come, spawn them for all the group on the next x corpses? Or was it just really strange, streaky luck?

    Rogue Level 90 - 60K Hit Points - 2225 AA's & Journeyman T5 Healer Merc.
    Killed a couple of Restless Spirits near a dead Froglok. Tried to loot. No good. Tried ?open.
    Clicked corpse several times. Finally looted the book. Then the Lizardman Patroller edged me out.
    Dark blue and nasty. I still have the book and quest updated. Bottom line is;
    1. Get the quest
    2. Get the book
    3. Kill a Lizardman Patroller (some are light blue)
    4. Return the book to Rupkerr

    Realize the patroller spawns on top of you the moment you loot the journal.
    You will have to fight, or otherwise circumvent, the restless spirits in order to access the froggy corpses.
    The first few corpses I /opened just poofed, the last one I opened then had to loot as usual.
    Lastly, I don't know if they are especially resistant or not but I attempted to root/rott one of the restless spirits and found it difficult to keep them rooted.

    Hi All,

    My Pally was just granted this mission at Level 80, refused at 79, thought I'd share.

    As to XP I at 20% to AA I went from AA - 96% / Main - 9% to you have gained 3 AA / 50% and Main 16%

    Not at all shabby!

    Question. Do you have to kill the lizardman to get the update to finish the task, or will simply aggroing him do it? Would like to start doing the solo tasks and flags but I'm only lvl 80 right now, and pretty sure I can't kill the Lizardman without a group to help me.

    To get the quest speak to Rupkerr he is on the west wall of the zone right by the Rathe Mountains zone line.
    The next step is to find the Froglog expedition, head to the far north east corner of the zone (I recemmend hitting the east wall then going north along the wall until you get the update spot.
    For the stage search the froglok corpses you will need clear out any mobs in aggro range and go to the different corpses target them and type /open then loot them, most will have nothing but one of them will have the journal your looking for.
    As soon as the looter grabs the journal a live mob a lizardman patroller will aggro the looter.
    After that mob is dead bring the journal back to Rupkerr and done.

    Rupkerr says 'A group of my fellow frogloks ventured out this way ages ago, with the intention of exploring the Feerrott and collecting [information] on how the jungle has changed since our time in Innothule.'

    You say, 'information'

    You have been assigned the task 'An Expedition Gone Awry'.

    Rupkerr says 'According to my findings, the expedition crew was traveling northeast through the Feerrott. See if you can locate the crew, or recover any information on their whereabouts.'

    You explore the undead ruins in the northeast part of the zone and loot a Tattered Expedition Journal from a froglok corpse which seem has about a 5 minute respawn rate. They are hard to target so you have to /target a_froglok to target them and then /open on thier corpse and then you have to target them again via the /target a_froglok and loot the Tattered Expedition Journal which sometimes the corpse won't have one on it. At this point the quest is done, all you have to do is turn in the journal to Rupkerr.

    Your task 'An Expedition Gone Awry' has been updated.

    You have located the missing froglok expedition crew, only to find that they have perished for reasons unknown.

    Rupkerr says 'This journal you brought me belonged to Krupp, the expedition leader. You say you found it on his corpse? It's a shame so many of the pages are missing. I'm sure they hold clues as to what caused the expedition crew to perish.'

    Your faction standing with Dream Delvers got better.

    You have successfully been granted your reward for: An Expedition Gone Awry

    The experience you get from the reward is about 6% regular experience into level 86

    There is a step you missed

    Defend yourself from the Lizardman patroller and then you can deliver the book to Rupkerr

    The camp where the froglok corpses are is surrounded by " a restless spirit" mobs that wander the entire area

    The spirits con dark blue to level 87
