This is a seasonal Frostfell group mission (3-6 players) that begins with Kilna Odenburgh in the Plane of Knowledge (located outside the Bazaar zone).

There are no known pre-requisites for requesting the task, and the mobs inside scale according to your group's average level.

You say, 'Hail, Kilna Odenburgh'

Kilna Odenburgh smiles at you hopefully, "Can you feel that? It's the winds of change a blowin'! A New Year always brings with it many changes, and many [promises] made to change."

You say, 'Promises?'

Kilna Odenburgh motions toward her husband Garuf with a heavy sigh, "I can't get this old lug to help out with anything! I promised myself I'd get our farm in tip-top shape this year, but I can't convince Garuf to do anything unless it involves [ale]."

You say, 'Ale?'

Kilna Odenburgh throws her arms up in the air dramatically, "All he does is sleep, drink, and belch! I keep telling him, 'The New Year is a perfect time to make some much needed [changes] in your daily habits', but he just keeps his face buried in the ale."

You say, 'What changes?'

Kilna Odenburgh brightens up as an idea pops into her head. "I don't suppose you'd like to stop by our little farm and [help] Garuf make some much needed changes? He's become an expert when it comes to ignoring me, but I'm sure he'll listen to an outsider's perspective. Come to think of it, there are plenty of people in our village who could use a little aid with their New Year's resolutions."

You say, 'I'll help'

Kilna Odenburgh grins wryly, "With your help, we'll have Garuf sober and the farm cleaned up in no time! Let me know when you're [ready] to go, and I'll give you directions to our quaint village."

You have been assigned the task 'Time for a Change'.

Kilna Odenburgh has asked you to come to her village and help its residents make some changes in the New Year!

You say, 'Ready!'

Kilna Odenburgh says 'Safe travels!'

You have entered A Quaint Village.

Speak to Kilna Odenburgh 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Find Kilna at location 2780, -100, 15 (at a house near the farm).

You say, 'Hail, Kilna Odenburgh'

Kilna Odenburgh smiles warmly, "Welcome to our home! The Odenburgh family farm usually feeds the entire village, but lately that wonky Pizmip Nobbletod has been demanding more food than we can produce. Farm work is no simple task, mind you, and with Garuf spending all his time drunk by the lake, there's little time to give the fields the proper care they deserve. As you can see, our latest crop has become infested with beetles! I promised myself that in the New Year I'd take better care of our farm, but I could certainly use a hand since I clearly won't be getting any help from Garuf."

Rid the Farm of its pests 0/6 (Dragonscale Hills)

Task Window Says: Kill the beetles that are eating Kilna's crops.

The beetles spawn in the farm area. At their highest level (Level 90+), they hit for a max ~6,000 (mezzable; stunnable; rootable).

Return to Kilna Odenburgh 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

You say, 'Hail, Kilna Odenburgh'

Kilna Odenburgh draws in a sharp breath as she scans her crops with disbelief, "Well I'll be... you managed to clear those fields of beetles in the blink of an eye. If only Garuf showed such efficiency. Speaking of my lazy husband, would you mind fetching him from the lake southwest of here? He's been fishing all day."

Speak to Garuf Odenburgh 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Task Window Says: Garuf is likely fishing at the lake to the southwest end of the farm.

Garuf is near the minotaur fort at the lake.

You say, 'Hail, Garuf Odenburgh'

Garuf Odenburgh plants his feet firmly on the ground, shaking his head at you while he speaks, "Oh no, no, I'm not going anywhere! That old wretch Kilna sent you, am I right? She goes on an on about changin' this and changin' that, "Drink less Garuf, work more Garuf". My wife thinks she can force me to change by hiding my last stein of beer in the spider-infested windmill. What kind of woman keeps a dwarf from his ale?! That Kilna knows I'd drink a mug of milk before I'd be alone in a room with creepy-crawlers. Help an old dwarf enjoy his last stein of ale, would ya?"

Clear out the spiders in the windmill 0/6 (Dragonscale Hills)

Find Garuf's last stein of ale 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Task Window Says: Defeat all the spiders in the windmill by the farm, and recover Garuf's last stein of ale which is hidden somewhere inside.

The ale is a groundspawn on the top level inside the windmill at 2985, 345, 39.

Spiders, at their highest level (Level 90+), hit for a max ~6,000 (mezzable; stunnable; rootable).

There's also a locked chest at this location. You can use a "Lucky Charm" from the Frostfell solo task "All You Need is Luck" to open it. You may find a Cured Bacon inside...

Return the ale to Garuf 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Speak to Garuf Odenburgh 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

You say, 'Hail, Garuf Odenburgh'

Garuf Odenburgh raises the stein of ale to his lips with a comforted grin, "Ah, my dear old Kilna was right. A sip of this delicious brew has me feeling like making a change. Startin' today, I plan on drinking three steins of ale for breakfast, three for lunch, and three for dinner! Ha! I guess that means more ale for me, and none for Pizmip Nobbletod. He's just going to have to go without. It's seems a bit strange to me that he's stockpiling so much food and drink, but then again, gnome's are never really known for their sanity. Would you mind dropping by his house northeast of the farm, and letting him know that the Odenburgh's have no ale or crops to spare?"

Speak to Pizmip Nobbletod 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Pizmip is found at a three-room house near the Steamfont zoneout area.

NOTE: The task locks at this point.

You say, 'Hail, Pizmip Nobbletod'

Pizmip Nobbletod tugs on his little tufts of hair in frustration, "What do you mean nothing to spare?! Don't those imbeciles know that they'll be demolished in a matter of days, anyway? Dead dwarves can't drink ale!" The frazzled gnome pauses for a breath, while a hint of recognition flashes upon his face. "I know you! Yes, yes I do! You're my lucky _____ friend who's going to be with me until the [end] of time!"

You say, 'End of time?'

Pizmip Nobbletod nods feverishly, "Oh yes, the ancient Akhevan calendar says it'll be any day now. I've been making preparations for a life underground. I've stored food, and mapped out where I'll build my bunker, but not all is going according to plan. I still require quite a few chunks of meat, and someone needs to convince the bats living in the cave east of here to clear out!" Pizmip glances up at you with sad eyes, "You'll help, won't you? After all, you don't want to spend an eternity in a bat-filled bunker!"

Clear the cave of bats 0/4 (Dragonscale Hills)

Loot chunks of meat from scaled wolves 0/6 Dragonscale Hills)

This cave is found at the zone-in to Steamfont, and wolves are found in the northwest part of the zone around /location 3400, 800. These mobs hit for a max ~6,000 (at their highest level, in the Level 90+ task), and are mezzable; stunnable; rootable.

Give the chunks of meat to Pizmip 0/6 (Dragonscale Hills)

Speak to Pizmip Nobbletod 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

You say, 'Hail, Pizmip Nobbletod'

Pizmip Nobbletod stashes the chunks of meat away in a storage chest and smiles, "I've perfected a delicious recipe to cure these meats. You and I shall eat like kings once the world ends! As for the greedy Mr. & Mrs. Odenburgh? Well, you can let them know that there will be no space in my bunker for them!"

Return to Kilna Odenburgh 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

You say, 'Hail, Kilna Odenburgh'

Kilna Odenburgh rolls her eyes, "That Pizmip is simply out of his mind, though he'll be doing us all a favor if he decides to spend an eternity underground, so I guess I should thank you for that."

Thanks to your efforts, the people in Kilna's quaint village will be able to make some changes in the New Year!

Kilna Odenburgh says 'I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate your help in our little village, but I understand if you need to [leave] and tend to other matters.'

Option 1: Experience, 112pp

The chunks of meat are food, do not eat them accidentally. Same with the cured bacon.

Also the xp in this instance is really really poor (at level 88), despite the even-con mobs.

Yep, I ate 3 of the meat chunks and only could get 2 more, so screwed unless I can get some from another zone and turn it in
update, bought more meat chunks from vendor in south Ro and finished with no problems.

Six locked chests in the instance, each player can only open one chest per mission using their lucky charm. Three chests behind the houses on the farm, one behind Pizmip's house, one by the metal platform near the windmill, and one in the windmill.

Some chests may have more than one cured bacon inside.
Bacon soda

Speak to pizmap step...

Also, at the top of the windmill where the Stein is, you will also see "a locked chest."

Use the Lucky Charm from the solo task to /open it.

Cured bacon inside.

Some say a possible recipe inside as well (for the Cured bacon.... chocolate bacon and bacon soda)
