This is a solo task that begins with Gimthra (map) in Evantil, the Vile Oak. She is found at -185, 345, 20. This is at the very base of the tree (southwest corner, on the inside of the "gorge" that surrounds the tree's south side)
- Level 85
- No tasks
You say, 'Hail, Gimthra'
Gimthra tips her mug to the sky and chugs. After a few seconds, she carelessly tosses the metal tankard to the ground and wipes the dripping foam from her lips with her arm. She reeks of beer as she looks up at you and grins. 'You here for the [dragons]?'
You say, 'Dragons...'
Gimthra doesn't wait for your response. She cuts you off and starts walking around you in a wide, wobbly circle, waving her arms while she rants, 'Yeah, they told me there'd be dragons here too!' Gimthra starts pantomiming her descriptions as she continues, 'Giant, scaly beasts with big wings, twenty rows of teeth, and at least fifty-foot torch radius on the flames it can shoot from its mouth. I came here for dragons, I came here for [treasure], I came here for glory! Instead I get a bunch of [weird bugs]. No thanks.
You say, 'What treasure?'
Gimthra's eyes darken and she tears off her bracer and throws it as far as she can, 'Dragon treasure! I was told there would be mountains of treasure the size of...' Gimthra's voice trails off as she loses focus and struggles to think, '...well, mountains, I guess. Lots of mountains of treasure!' Gimthra's eyes light up and she stumbles towards you. 'Can you imagine if there were mountains of treasure here? Those [wimpy druids] told me there was never any treasure here. You think they're hiding it?'
You say, 'What about the weird bugs?'
Gimthra laughs and puts her arm around your shoulder, 'Well, all bugs are kind of weird, you know? But these bugs are, uh, extra weird. There's like all-white snakes and some wolves made out of trees or something and, oh, there's these little floating eyeballs that are super weird!' Gimthra holds you at arm's distance, steadying herself by holding onto you, and looks you in the eyes, 'How have you not seen these, Gnome? They're like everywhere. You've seen those [wimpy druids] at least, right? I hope I'm not hallucinating all this.'
You say, 'Wimpy druids?'
Gimthra picks up her tankard and fills it with beer at the nearest keg while she talks, 'They're just to the east near the base of this big tree. But there's not much use talking to them. All they care about is that stupid tree. They think it's such a big deal.' Gimthra takes on a mocking tone as she mimics the druids, 'Stop hassling us about dragons and treasure, Gimthra. Go away so we can hug our tree, Gimthra.' She spits out some beer on the ground and takes another swig before looking back at you, 'I mean, come on! The tree isn't even that big! I could totally [cut that tree down] in like two chops of an axe.'
You say, 'Cut that tree down?'
Gimthra jumps at you and puts her finger in your chest while shouting at you with her beer-heavy breath, 'What? You don't think I can't do it? You don't think I can cut down this little wimpy tree? I've cut down trees twice its size without breaking a sweat. I'll do it right now, I'll prove it to you. Go get me an [axe]!'
You say, 'An axe?'
Gimthra says 'Yeah, an axe, dummy. Does it look like I'm carrying an axe big enough to chop down this tree? Go get me some piles of scrap metal and wood. I'll make the axe myself and then chop this tree down, dwarf-style.'
You have been assigned the task 'A Feat of Drunken Strength'.
You met a drunk dwarf who insists she can cut down the massive tree that sits in the middle of the region. You don't see any way that she could possibly succeed, but it might be entertaining to watch her try.
She challenged you to bring her wood from the treants that wander around the outskirts of the area so she can build an axe. She'll also need some metal scraps. You can find them suspended inside saps and oozelings around outcroppings close to the tree.
Collect pieces of wood from treants 0/5 (Evantil, the Vile Oak)
Collect metal scraps from saps 0/3 (Evantil, the Vile Oak)
Treants are all over the outer area of the zone. Oozes are in the chasm and top-side as well.
Give the materials to Gimthra 0/1 (Evantil, the Vile Oak)
Hail her and follow through dialogue, then say "a pet snake" for the update.
Find a pretty flower 0/1 (Evantil, the Vile Oak)
These are the flower mobs that are found wandering about the same area. There is no item involved here. It's a random update on kills.
Steal an animal trap from the wretched living in the tree 0/1 (Evantil, the Vile Oak)
Go up the ramp that leads into the tree entrance (the ramp is southeast of Gimthra's camp, nearby the main cluster of quest NPCs). The animal trap is a ground spawn next to the Alaran at the top of this ramp (in the first room). It's along the wall and is bright orange in appearance. (-225, -95, 241)
Fight a snake until it passes out, then throw the trap on it while it's unconscious 0/1 (Evantil, the Vile Oak)
Fight snakes until you get a proper update message.
Give the snake and the flower to Gimthra 0/1 (Evantil, the Vile Oak)
Ask the gnome nearby for help 0/1 (Evantil, the Vile Oak)
Hail Anorak (map), who stands nearby.
