This task is the sixth in a series. It is automatically assigned at the end of the task "Funeral of the Damned".

You have been assigned the task 'Lumber Run'.

Captain Jensen says 'Thank you so much, _____. The spirits of our dead will rest a little easier now. Now we must focus our efforts on our current predicament. If we're to have any hope of leaving this accursed land, we'll have to repair the boats. Speak with Stefani if you are willing and able to help further.'

Speak with Stefani

You say, 'Hail, Stefani'

Stefani says 'Now that our ships have been destroyed, we're stranded in these hills. And it may as well be the edge of the world. The captain deliberately kept this place a secret, so we can't expect anyone to come looking for us, even if they knew we were in trouble. The supplies can only last so long. Our sole option is to [repair] the boats.'

You say, 'Repair?'

Your task 'Lumber Run' has been updated.

Stefani says 'Thank you for volunteering. Someone needs to assess the damage done to the ships, and we also need able-bodied folk to head down to the grove to harvest lumber for the repairs. You'll find Paul along with several woodcutters already there with the work underway.'

Speak with Paul

You say, 'Hail, Paul'

Paul glances behind you, fearfully, 'Did you see anyone on your way here? I could swear we were being watched. There's rustling in the leaves, eyes in the darkness, and shadows darting between the trees. Listen, as the new guy you can keep an eye out while we work and warn us if there's trouble. Let me know when you're [ready].'

Your task 'Lumber Run' has been updated.

You say, 'I am ready'

Paul says 'Hold them off for us while we finish preparing the lumber. Keep your eyes peeled, they could be anywhere!'

Paul says 'Look there! Behind that tree!'

Protect the woodcutters

Three Kirathas attack them. Once they are dead, three more come. You have to be careful, because the woodcutters and Paul will easily attack group members. You may need to mez or mem blur. You may wind up with a swarm of 6-8 mobs, including a Kirathas Captain. The death of the Captain yields this task update.

Speak with Stefani

You say, 'Hail, Stefani'

Stefani says 'Another ambush?! During the lumber harvesting? It's just like these savages to come at us when we're unprepared and defenseless. Who do these [cowards] think we are?'

You say, 'Cowards!'

Stefani says 'We're not going to lie down passively and be slaughtered like farm animals. It's time we stood up for ourselves. It's time we launched a [counter-attack].'

Your task 'Lumber Run' has been updated.

You helped Paul harvest lumber, and in the process unwittingly stumbled upon the outskirts of the Elddar encampment.

This leads into the seventh task in the series, 'Counter Attack'.

Please add these as related mobs
a Kirathas warrior

The warriors and druids are attackers along with the captain.
The woodcutters are defenders along with Paul.
Is this broken?

Very strange this one. I killed the first and the second sets of three, then all of the woodcutters attacked me. I was wearing eyes of Darkwater, so I didn't think this was going to happen. I feigned death and so did pet, but they ran around trying to kill my merc. After about 5 minutes of her healing herself and them getting nowhere (she's J5) and no captain spawning, I gave up and throned out. I'll try again tomorrow, but if anyone is aware that this quest is broken on Povar, please post here?

Before hailing paul locate the mysterious stranger on map near by , you can buy a Eyes of Blackwater mask that changes your faction, cost is 52P . Equip the mask then hail Paul (this will prevent him and the woodcutters from attacking you) then the kirathas and captain will spawn and attack. We learned this after several attampts on this part of the lumber run task.
need to be grouped

You need to be in a group, not necessary for all members to be in zone, in order for the mobs to actually appear and rush you.
Protect the Woodcutters

Note. Unlike most solo tasks this expansion, completing the Protect the Woodcutters step of this task WILL update the task for anyone in group that gets the xp off the captain.
