|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the fifth task in a series of six. The tasks must be completed in order, and may be repeated after completion. |
Upon completing the previous task:
Once again, Akins carefully examines the plant remnants you brought him, sniffing and evening chewing on them for a bit. Spitting out some pieces he explains that indeed, the treants are animated by the very same magic as were the shambling mounds but seem to contain much more of the same magic, as if they were closer to the source. He goes on to explain that it is not necromantic magic but something even darker, angrier. . . as if someone was exacting a deep seated thirst for [revenge].
You say, 'Revenge?'
Akins says 'It seems that the treants were normal trees that just happened to be closer to the center of the blast than the shrubs. I don't know who or what. . .or even more importantly why this occurred but I am sure with your help you and I can surely get to the [bottom] of this.'
You say, 'The bottom?'
Akins says 'Now that we've discovered that the source of the shambling mounds and treants aren't the spirits of the dead, we need to figure out just what may have caused this awfully strange occurrence. Head back to the Marsh and investigate even deeper. Look for anything that seems out of the ordinary. Surely if the magic that affected these plants is still powerful enough to animate them today, there will be some other sign of it elsewhere. Once you think you have discovered this location, begin to collect various samples of whatever you can.'
You have been assigned the task 'Spooky!'.
Head out to the marsh in Blightfire Moors and search for the source of the magic around loc 950.90, -1048.27, -86.00. (It is the big crater in the middle of the marsh you can't miss it.) Once you get the emote indicating you've found it, you can start killing the zombie giants. You'll need to kill 6 of them and loot a total of 4 Glowing Glass Shards. Once you have them, head back to Akins to do the hand-in.
You tell Akin's about the mysterious fire surrounded by a ring of black, charred glass which seems to captivate him. Then you hand over the various samples of items you recovered from around that area and he immediately turns his attention to them. After briefing fiddling with the samples, he goes on to explain that he believes the crater was the center of some sort of blast and that the shambling mounds and treants were merely caught in the blast that was meant for the giants.
You receive 12 platinum.
You gain experience!!
This opens the final task in the series, available from Akins.
