    This is one of 10 tasks to be completed in order to attain the Blessed Celestine Faycite augmentation.

    This is the third task in a series of five and starts with Grom of Camp Valor in the Hills of Shade. It follows the previous task, 'A Mysterious Bond'.

    You say, 'Hail, Grom'

    Grom seems to be in an upbeat mood, 'It is as I suspected, _____. These buggers are dining on the dead! Something in that spore filled belly of theirs must be disintegratin' the very [essence of undeath]'.

    You say, 'Essence of undeath?'

    Grom says 'That's right, essence of undeath. The very thing that keeps those wretched fly baits moving. Here at the camp we've been working on a way to extract the essence, but we are missing a few [key ingredients].'

    You say, 'What key ingredients?'

    Grom says 'The first ingredient is a piece of Cursed Bark. The cursed treants that reside in Erollisi's Grove have strange and powerful characteristics that will aid in the extraction process. The second ingredient is a Vial of Glowing Ichor. The necromancers use this blend to both supplement the golem's undead characteristics as well as make them more controllable.'

    You have been assigned the task 'An Extract Science'.

    Loot 4 Glowing Ichor 0/4 (Hills of Shade)

    These drop from rampaging boneguards north of the Loping Plains zone-in.

    Loot 4 Cursed Bark 0/4 (Hills of Shade)
