You can obtain this quest from Colwell Emtray in The Western Wastes at /loc -1479, -2196, 31 or you can look at his npc page to see the map of where he is.
You say, 'Hail, Colwell Emtray'
Colwell Emtray's expression raises to hope after he sees you approach, 'It, it's you!' Colwell says with a relieved look, 'I'm so happy to see you! We need some help. My cohorts and I have been hunting dragons here for some time and one day, everything started to change to what you see now. Which, I admit, doesn't drastically change the landscape, but it does drastically alter how we [hunt] dragons.'
You say, 'hunt'
Colwell Emtray says, 'Yes, this wretched ice has seeped into nooks and crannies here in the Western Wastes and has crept into the dragon caves to the north. I sent Thach to gather information about this, but he hasn't returned. I'm sure he's fine, he's just new and needs to learn somehow! I was thrown to the dragons when I was a kid and I'm totally fine, well with the exception of having a [death wish] and fighting monsters who can eat me in two bites, and the only reason it takes two bites is because I have good armor!'
You say, 'death wish'
Colwell Emtray says, 'Ok so not really a death wish, but this job is not for the weak! Many hunters who joined our ranks quit after their first spotting of a dragon, but not us! We know what we need to do and it may be [thankless], but it is honest work, which brings me to why I'm elated to see you.'
You say, 'thankless'
Colwell Emtray says, 'Well, while you adventurers are out kicking the teeth in of every gnoll you find, someone has to keep the dragons here in check or at least keep an [eye] on their plans.'
You say, 'eye'
Colwell Emtray rolls with the joke without missing a beat, 'Hardy har! I didn't realize the greatest comedian of Norrath was going to visit me today. Let me see if I can get you a crowd', Colwell puts two fingers in his mouth and whistles so loudly, you almost had to cover your ears by reflex, 'Oh look, all of your fans showed up! Anyways, my crew needs to get paid and in order to do that, I need to get a message to my [employer] in the Plane of Knowledge to let them know what we have found so far.'
You say, 'employer'
You have been assigned the task 'One For You, Two For Me'.
Colwell Emtray says, 'I guess knowing who to look for would be important to you, should you actually want to help. Their name is Ms Hegla and they are also a part of the Oresco Hunters. You may need to look around a bit for them, but they will be there. Bring them this report and hopefully we can get some much needed resources like food or...', Colwell pauses for a moment, 'Well I guess that's all we really need, it isn't much but I have no doubt that they will supply us with what we need in order to protect the whole of Norrath from being destroyed.''
You have been given: Sealed Hunter's Report
Task Window Text: The Oresco Hunters are a newer group of dragon hunters who are learning the ropes on dragon hunting. Though it appears they may be a bit in the weeds with their current mission.
Deliver the report to Ms. Hegla in the Plane of Knowledge and let them know what is happening in the Western Wastes.
- Deliver the Report to Ms. Hegla 0/1 The Plane of Knowledge
Ms. Hegla is in Plane of Knowledge outside of the smithing building not far from the Shroudkeeper Learu.
You say, 'Hail, Ms. Hegla'
Ms. Hegla appears to be checking a lot of notes while frantically trying to sort something out, 'I'm a very important and busy person, go away!'
Upon hand in to her of Sealed Hunter's Report (153923):
You have been given: Hegla's Response
Your task 'One For You, Two For Me' has been updated.
Ms. Hegla says, 'Ah yes, the Western Wastes Branch. I sent them there because I knew they could handle the weight of what is happening in that area with little to no resources. Which is great because the less resources they use, the more money I make! With that aside, please return this envelope to Colwell, inside are further instructions on his next task as well as his crew's compensation.'
- Report Back to Colwell 0/1 Western Wastes
Task Window Text: Return to Colwell with the response from Ms Hegla
Upon hand in of Hegla's Reponse:
Your task 'One For You, Two For Me' has been updated.
Colwell Emtray happily takes the report from you and immediately tears it open, two platinum coins drop from the envelope into Colwell's hand, 'Well, it isn't much, but I know the company is strapped for cash so this will do.' After he finishes reading the report, he takes out a small item and clicks it a few times. In a flash, the report catches fire and disappears in a puff of smoke and ash. Colwell turns to you with a tired smile. 'I hope you don't mind helping us again, friend. This may seem like a simple task for one such as yourself, but I need you to kill a few giants. We aren't sure why they are here, but we need to take care of them too now,' he pauses for a moment, '...apparently'
- Dispatch Giants 0/5 The Western Wastes
Task Window Text: There are giants in the Wastes that are not meant to be there and you are asked to clear them out.
This step updates by killing a restless kromzek. They are found northeast of the ToV valley.
- Return to Ms. Hegla 0/1 The Plane of Knowledge
Ms. Hegla is found burning several reports at once, completely oblivious to you watching them do this, 'You again? Oh, right, the Western Wastes branch. Thanks for taking care of that for them? I guess? I'm going to be honest with you and I'm not sure why you came and told me, I'm too busy to care. Go back to,' her voice becomes heavy with disdain, 'them.'
- Update Colwell about the Situation 0/1 The Western Wastes
Colwell Emtray looks a little defeated and embarrassed when they see you approach, 'I'm very sorry about my reaction to the report. I took it out on you and didn't mean to. Thank you so much for helping us. Well it is clear that my employer isn't going to give us much more in the way of resources. Which I totally understand! We're all just flying by the seat of our pantaloons here. If you could do us one big favor, we need supplies for rations. Can you please bring me some meat? I just need a small pile of it for proper meal prep. We can continue to work hard out here so long as food is in our belly and a passion is in our heart!' Colwell seems to have cheered up since the start of this conversation.
- Collect Rations for The Hunters 0/5 The Western Wastes
Task Window Text:The Oresco Hunters are a new group of dragon hunters who are learning the ropes on dragon hunting. Though it appears they may be a bit in the weeds with their current mission.
The Oresco Hunters are in need of rations, collect Restless Meat Slurry from Velious (ToV zones).
HINT: The quest does not update if you have Restless Meat Slurry on your toon you need to Trade them to another Toon and back for the Update. Or you can also start trading them to Colwell and immediately cancel the trade for a task update.
- Return to Colwell with the Restless Meat 0/5 The Western Wastes
Colwell Emtray is very happy to see your delivery, 'Well my friend, you blessed us with more sustenance than any god ever has, we should build a temple for you! I'm kidding you're still not funny enough for that kind of attention.' Colwell chuckles. 'We have all we need here to continue our important work. Thank you again. If you happen to be in these parts again, just find me and we may have more work for you. I certainly can use the help.'
You gain experience!
