This solo task begins with Wayfarers Mercenary Jeryx (click for map image) in the Lavastorm Mountains, located at the Wayfarers camp at /loc 2250, -50, 70.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Level 45
- Maximum "apprehensive" faction with Dark Reign

You say, 'Hail, Wayfarers Mercenary Jeryx'

Wayfarers Mercenary Jeryx says 'So, you want to get in good with them dark crusaders, eh? I might be able to help you. If you run a few errands for me, I can probably put in a good word.'

You have been assigned the task 'Meat Stew'.

You can certainly help us gather some goblin flesh from the Stillmoon Temple. Turns out it makes a pretty hearty stew for the Dark Reign. If you would, go loot 7 Mottled Goblin Meat.



Loot 7 Mottled Goblin Meat 0/7 (ALL)

Loot 7x "Mottled Goblin Meat" from Stillmoon goblins in Stillmoon Temple.

Upon looting the seventh item, you see:

You've done it. You've earned Jeryx a bit of coin and yourself a bit of a reputation with the Dark Reign!

Your faction standing with Dark Reign got better. (+20)
Your faction standing with Lanys T'Vyl got better. (+20)
Your faction standing with Firona Vie got worse. (-20)
Your faction standing with Norrath's Keepers got worse. (-20)

The rewards for this quest (faction, plat, and experience) are given to you as soon as you loot the seventh piece of meat. No need to go back to the quest giver to do a hand-in. Quest givers reject the meat if you do try to hand them in. No other uses that I've found for the meat outside of the quest.

Did this solo with a cleric merc as a level 56 SK. Used a bow with long range to pull to alcove to the right of zone-in as you face the temple. The left side has the possibility of two roaming drakes as adds when the mobs start to flee. As mentioned by others, these mobs are all pretty fast. None gated on me (tried 2 novices), so I was lucky there.

The majority of the goblins are fairly easy (dark blue at level 56), with the exception of the Stillmoon dirt tenders. They are clerics and cast Retribution like mad. They eventually run out of mana after 2-3 cycles of healing themselves back to near full.

Hard to tell how much faction this quest now grants. I was apprehensive to the Dark Reign going into the quest (was my first quest for faction) and remained at apprehensive upon completion.
Still Repeatable?

Just completed this task. Tried to get it again (level 60 SHD) but it was not presented as an option, only the level 65 task "Taunting the Brood" was offered.
Is there a time limited imposed as with Hot Zone tasks?

The level on this quest must be wrong because none of these npcs will even speak with a level 51 toon. I've done some asking around and you can't even start doing anything for these npcs until around level 55. That seems to be the concensus anyway since no one has been able to do anything before 55.
