    Banty Bourdizzle may be found at 335, -580.

    You say, 'Hail, Banty Bourdizzle'

    Banty Bourdizzle says 'I was hoping you would come over here. Was I staring too much? Oh, I'm sorry, I can be so rude. I assure you it's unintentional. It's just that I am working on some very [important enterprises] that need the help from outsiders in order to come to fruition.'

    You say, 'What important enterprises?'

    Banty Bourdizzle says 'Oh I just knew you'd be interested! This is wonderful. . . wonderful indeed. The research I'm doing here is paramount. The others can't [comprehend its importance], but you seem like someone who can [appreciate the gravity] of the situation.'

    You say, 'I comprehend its importance.'

    Banty Bourdizzle says 'Its importance is of the utmost. Let me ask you this. What do you think of when I say the word [omelette]?'

    You say, 'An omelette?'

    Banty Bourdizzle says 'I just blew your mind didn't I? There are few who can have the cognitive capacity to fully appreciate the simplicity, and yet, the complexity of the perfect omelette. Many have tried, many have failed, and many have died. Well. . . maybe not died, but seriously, is life worth living if you haven't experienced the utter bliss of such a perfectly prepared pabulum? I would say "No, sir. It isn't". I digress. So, whaddya say? Will you help me forage, find, or ferret out the most [essential elements] of eating?'

    You say, 'What essential elements?'

    Banty Bourdizzle says 'Superb! Now then, the list of ingredients I require is as follows. First I need some eggs. Those pesky bird thieves probably have them all over the place. Next thing is some plump, juicy maggots! Oh, I just love the way they pop in your mouth! Jorun gets mad when I raid his supply so he keeps a close eye on me. Perhaps you can get them straight from the source, zombies. Finally, to complete the aromatics, I will need a few sprigs of rotweed. Rotweed usually grows in compost piles, which gives it that sweet ammonia smell! Now, be off!'

    You have been assigned the task 'The Perfect Omelette'.

    Banty is a gnome with an appetite. Tucked away in the Undertaker's Refuge, he is trying to perfect his omelette recipe. However, in ordrr to get the fires cookin', he's going to need a few ingredients. Eggs from the Borrower Aviaks are said to be quite tasty, although a little inconsistent. A few choice plump maggots should be easy to find in the Risen Ancestors. After all, you are what (or who) you eat. Finally, a few sprigs of rotweed. It's probably easiest to find those on a Thorned Mulch, nature's animated spice cabinet that bites back.



    Loot 8 Borrower Egg 0/8 (Hills of Shade)

    Loot 4 Plump Maggot 0/4 (Hills of Shade)

    Loot 12 Sprig of Rotweed 0/12 (Hills of Shade)

    Borrower Eggs drop from various borrowers, plump maggots from the undead in the graveyard abd crypt of shade, and the sprigs of rotweed from the mulches around the zone.

    Deliver 8 Borrower Egg to Banty Bourdizzle 0/8 (Hills of Shade)

    Deliver 4 Plump Maggot to Banty Bourdizzle 0/4 (Hills of Shade)

    Deliver 12 Spring of Rotweed to Banty Bourdizzle 0/12 (Hills of Shade)

    Banty closes his eyes and smiles, imagining the omelette he's about to prepare.

    Because the drop rates on every item required for this quest are really bad. Really, really, bad. And, if you're in a group where multiple people are working on the quest, expect days of time invested in it.

    It is definitely not worth doing *just* for the 100+ Bertox Chosen faction. You can kill the green wisps in HOS for this faction at +2 a pop.

    Can't pre-loot.. as you get credit when u loot them.. If your bank slots are full from collecting stuff.. at least these will let you parcel to another toon after you've looted them, until you're ready to turn in.

    Have you tried trading them to someone and then back? Or drop them and pick them up again.

    The droprate on the sprig of rotweed is horrible. It varies hugely from day to day...from 1 in 3 to 1 in 15...
