This quest is no longer active after the Grimling Forest revamp during the summer of 2003. The mini-wars in the various Grimling camps are still active and still result in the Copper Medal of War for the Beastlord epic.

This is one of 4 or 5 quests which result in a key for entry into the Castle area of Acrylia Caverns.

You say, 'Hail, Scout Husman'

Scout Husman says 'Greetings, ______. Are you [here to help]? You've no doubt heard of the issues with the Grimlings throughout the forest. I fear we may not be able to push them back enough this time to keep our people safe from the dastardly deeds of those vile things. Reports have come in that they may be trying to come at us from the North. While it wouldn't be unheard of, such a move might prove to be a decoy for other attacks coming from the West.'

You say, 'I am here to help.'

Scout Husman says 'I'm glad to hear it. From our reports, they have a rather small group of soldiers North of here, comprising of two encampments not far from each other. We must begin pushing the Grimlings back to their mines so they cannot continue to have a stronghold in this area. For now, you must gather together a group of soldiers to venture with you to help us clear one of the camps out. When you are [ready to go], inform me of such and I will lead you to the camp where you can make preparations for battle.'

You say, 'I am ready to go.'

Scout Husman says 'Right, then. We'll be making our way to, what we believe, is their number one camp, leading the way for the other camp northward down to us. Make sure you have everyone with you, we'll be making our way to the camp in just a minute.'

After a minute he runs to the site.

Scout Husman says 'Here we are, at their primary camp to the direct North of our outpost. It is up to you to clear the camp of these worrisome Grimlings so we can help to push them back into those wretched mines. They'll likely use the hills behind those huts as cover for their casters, but be sure to clear out those in the huts first, as they will no doubt be more trouble than you are expecting. Also, watch out for any officers, as they can cause more problems still if you're not careful. When you are [ready to start], let me know and I will let you loose to wreak havoc on the Grimlings of that camp.'

In yellow:

Your primary objective is to eliminate the main force of the camp and then assault the casters on the hills afterward. Good luck!

Once you're ready:

You say, 'I am ready to start.'

Scout Husman says 'Now is the time, my friends, to prove yourselves in the thick of battle! Charge to the enemy and leave no Grimling standing!'

Kill all the mobs in the camp and the spellcasters on the hill come active. Kill those until the boss spawns at the campfire. Kill him and collect your loots. Make sure you keep Scout Husman alive in order to collect.

You have slain Arcanist Ukigit!

Other mobs encountered:

grimling gruntling
grimling corpsecaller
grimling painsoother
grimling spiritchanter


All of the gruntlings drop Captured Grimling Document I.

Arcanist Ukigit dropped:

[Wed Jan 11 09:03:17 2012] --You have looted a Thick Silk.--
[Wed Jan 11 09:03:18 2012] --You have looted a Crude Animal Pelt.--

Do you still need a Polished Acrylia Sphere (or the other spheres) at some point? If so, when?

After the scout chgarged the camp we all destroyed the grimlings, then another wave , then another. maybe 4 or 5 waves in all. at that point the camp started to repop. then we waited until it repopped again. no further waves showed up and the officer never showed. We then killed the scout, not appreciating his joke at our expense and took his shield (whick bites but looks very cool).
what does is the reward?and stats

Well i just did this and well it was a 56 rogue 53 cleric and 31 Druid just to get agro off the Scout. The first time the scout died right after the officer spawned, but I found out you just restart it run in with your scalp and as soon as the fight starts hand the scalp to the scout and away he runs. Than just head to the fort and let the guards finish em off for ya. It took me about 3 repops for the officer to spawn. So as long as you get the officer the scout can die.

I just completed this quest and was not very difficult. 49war/40war/43rang/44cleric/42dru
Hand him the sphere and your off. He leads you to a camp @-1100,+340,+18 and that is where you stand and fight. Seems you would be better off clearing the camp before you start. I havent tested this so not sure they wont respawn upon starting the quest. Be worth looking into.

The officer spawn, droped scalp, and handed it to him, and he ran back to town.

Good Luck hope this helps

I tried this about 2 weeks ago. We were a 40 WARR, 39 ENC, 40 DRU, and 39 DRU. We all lived, but the scout died quickly due to endless repops. Kind of tough, this one--go in with a good, full group, or be high level.
Spawn time on Officer?

Been sitting here for a couple hours and no officer. Anyone have any comments?

The officer is a rare spawn (amongst the waves) I've had him come the second wave and I've had him never show

No need to think everyone's an idiot just because you are.

I'm a cleric, I sit, it's my job. I had a 60 Mage and 49 Ranger doing the killing.

Officer never showed, so we let the scout die, maybe I'll go back and try again sometime soon. I wrote up a /bug report about it though, just in case.

When I did it, it took about 10 Mins for the Officer to show up.

I handed the Sphere to Scout Husman, he respawned with weapons and pathed out of the fort, across the bridge and upto a small hill. He then paused a moment, said something along the lines of "with my next word, we are to charge the camp and slay every grimling".

He said go, I ran in with the pet, started tashing everything in sight to get them off him. There were 3 Grimlings outside the tents, two more in each tent. Killed them all, and then the Scout said "Good, we have taken the camp, they are sure to send re-enforcements, we must hold them off".

Took about 2 Mins for another 4 or 5 grimlings to come running at the camp, killed them off as well. About 2 minutes after that, another wave of grimlings attacked, this time with the Officer.

Unfortunately, at this time, my pet was killed by the officer (whom I couldn't stun, mes or anything) and I lost the battle, since I couldn't cast with the officer beating on me. I presume that with the officer drops a NODROP head or token of some sort which you then hand to Scout Husman to recieve your Medal.

All in all, took me all of 10 Mins. (not counting the 20 Min respawn on the Scout from the first time I royally fooked up and got him aggro'd on me) This quest would be doable if I had even one 55+ Melee with me at the time.

If the scout hasn't died, and is just standing there and you're not receiving waves of attackers, I would assume that something broke in the script.

I'd think the proper order would be

/debase self
/em says "I'm not worthy"
/grovel some more

Nice to see one of our Icons gets out there and bleeds like the rest of us.

Well, maybe not bleed ;)
