|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the first in a series of five tasks.
Find Scout Madu in Goru'kar Mesa at loc -1850, -700. This is a short distance to the west of the zoneline to Blightfire Moors.
You say, 'Hail, Scout Madu'
Scout Madu says 'Well met traveler. I have been asked to keep an eye on this area and to attempt to reduce any threats to Crescent Reach that might arise. I can always use someone that has the will to attempt dangerous scouting missions, if you're able to deal with the [unusual folk] that live in these parts.'
You say, 'Unusual folk?'
Scout Madu says 'It was the oddest thing. This fellow that I don't know, one with the legs of a deer and the face of a human, stumbled into me the other day. And I mean stumbled literally. It seems that he had been very deep in his cups. He kept rambling on about his brother betraying him, but I never could get more out of him before he wandered off. How odd of him. Sorry. I do not know why you made me think of him, you obviously have your [wits] about you.'
You say, 'My wits?'
Scout Madu says 'Yes. Yes you do. If you would like to explore the area, I'm certain that Vulu over there has some work for you. But if you're looking for something more interesting than just wandering around, I might have some [tasks] that are a bit more dangerous that you could undertake for me.'
You say, 'What tasks?'
Scout Madu says 'I have many tasks available, but most of them require that you have much experience. When you think you are ready, come back to me and ask me about my more [difficult] tasks. In the meantime I have some tasks for ones with less experience, and I will even reward ones who help me with some [extra armor].'
You say, 'Difficult?'
Scout Madu says 'There are two types of creatures in this area that concern me as much as the gryphons and harpies. This is the [dromrek] and the [centaur].'
You say, 'Who are the Dromrek?'
Scout Madu says 'The Dromrek are a type of giant that can be found in the northwest of this area. They are massive in size, and fearsome of demeanor, but at the same time they seem to be rather unintelligent. If you would be [willing] to go explore the area where they live, it might give me more information to work with.'
You say, 'I am willing'
Scout Madu says 'Good. Be careful as they seem to dislike outsiders.'
You have been assigned the task 'Research the Dromrek'.
Find the southern extent of the Dromrek stomping grounds. Madu has been told that this is near a fork in the road to the north and west.
This is the clearly-marked fork south of the zone into The Steppes. Location: +290, +760.
You think you see a cave to the west. Take a look inside.
These are labeled "Giant Caves" on maps.
This is certainly a living space for them. Explore further and see if you can find any tools or other items that might give some information about the Dromrek.
The update location in the cave is at /loc +122, +1666.
It is the first open area in the cave, with several tunnels leading off from there.
Far enough! Get out of the cave, you've seen enough cave for Madu's needs. Head north and find the extent of the Dromrek hunting grounds.
Trigger is near the northern passage into the Griffin Valley. Follow the road that goes far north into the giant area (not the one to the caves). When you are parallel to the giant named Bigone just run northwest to the wall and when you hit the wall about 20 feet to the NE of the entry to the canyon on your left, you get the update.
You say, 'Hail, Scout Madu'
Your task 'Research the Dromrek' has been updated.
You have gathered enough information to give Madu an idea about the extent of the Dromrek hunting grounds and what sort of beings they might be.
You gain experience!!
Scout Madu says 'Hrm. Maybe they are more intelligent than I thought. Why don't you go and [talk] to some of the more intelligent looking ones?'
This is the lead-in to the task "Parlay with the Dromrek".
