Ilscent Tagglefoot by the druids guild is in a bind.

You say, 'Hail, Ilscent Tagglefoot'

Ilscent Tagglefoot says, 'Oh hello, Saildi. My name is Ilscent. I am glad to see you, but I am in a bit of a [bind] right now.'

You say, 'what bind'

Ilscent Tagglefoot says, 'Well, I promised an ally of ours that I would send him a case of Jumjum juice for all the help he has given us. I had planned on taking it to him myself, but I have too many chores to do here on the farm. Will you take the [jumjum juice] to him?'

You say, 'yes I will take the jumjum juice to him'

Ilscent Tagglefoot says, 'Oh, thank you so much! His name is Xanuusus and he lives in the Plains of Karana, in the foothills along their northern edge, actually. We are most grateful for your help. Xanuusus normally rewards messengers well.'

Go to North Karana and follow the water to the right. When you hit the mountains follow them and you will run right into him.

You say, 'Hail, Xanuusus'

Xanuusus says, 'Greetings, small one! I am Xanuusus of the Stormreapers. You are welcome to rest beneath my mighty branches.'

Although he responds the same to hails from apprehensive thru dubious, if you try to give him the jumjum case, he declines the trade. You must be amiable to get the jumjum and to turn it in.

Xanuusus says, 'Heh heh! Excellent, small one! My roots have been longing for some fresh jumjum juice! Thank you! Take this for your trouble. Be sure to thank the Tagglefoots for me.'

Your faction standing with Storm Reapers has been adjusted by 10.
Your faction standing with Mayor Gubbin has been adjusted by 1.
Your faction standing with Merchants of Rivervale has been adjusted by 1.
Your faction standing with Unkempt Druids has been adjusted by -1.
You gain experience!

You receive 8 silver from Xanuusus.
You say, 'Carrot'

Received some silver and a carrot for my delivery.

I've been doing this quest on and off for the last few years (whenever I feel bored really), and I've never once had to levitate to give him the jumjum juice. Obviously some people did, but I can't explain why some do and some don't.
Pretty weak

I just completed this about 2 min ago. Yes you still have to lev to give him the case of juice. Kept telling me I cancelled the trade til I levitated. Got a whole 2 silver and 2 pine needles for my trouble.
My take on this

A bit disappointing...a tough run (3 times) through Kithicore, High Pass Hold, E. Karanas and W. Karanas for a level 6-9 Ranger..don't fight, don't stop, swing wide and keep in the zones. My take: 2 silvers, 2 coppers, and 3 carrots..but Xanuusus is an interesting sight! Might do it again if I'm heading that special trip though.

Unkempt Druids

The Unkempt Druids have nothing to do with the Epic Quests, they are "evil" Druids.

Actually they're more like religous fanatics. They fight for nature and all that, but their methods have made them the enemies of other druids.
Fishing Pole

I received a fishing pole as a reward when I did this quest. It worked out good because I was just about to buy one.

I was a lev 1 and did the quest and got the fishing pole and some carrots,,no coin. Too bad a lion ate me (and the carrots no doubt) on the bridge just inside of EK. Got almost a full bubble of exp,,quite shabby ..

I just did this quest and recieved "Pine Needles" I can't forage and don't know if this is merely a foraged item. But, if not, I wonder what it's for? I think I'll take it back to the halfling.
The Wandering Bard

While searching almost fruitlessly for reasonable quary I came across a VERY large, moving tree! He said is name was Xanuusus and while quite polite and friendly, would speak no further with me. I plotted his location for further research into this enigmatic living arbol at P1185, P607. I wouldn't imagine a living tree gets around all that much so he very well can be found there on any occasion. The region in question, of course, is N Karana.

#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 24 2001 at 6:24 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It was probably an enchanter or druid using the tree form spell.

Ummm...saying that Xanuusus is probably an enchanter or druid using the tree form spell? Kinda every druid worth his SoW knows that Xanuusus is the treant who gives you your epic weapon once you've gotten all the items to give to him.
A long trip for little reward

This is a HEAVY case and its a long trip. I did a lot of quests repeatedly when I was a low level druid but I only did this one once.
#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 25 2000 at 12:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) DO not get bad faction from this quest or no partical weapon you need the uncempt druids to like you too keep clear of all druid bad faction things if you are a druid / ranger
RE: bad druid no weapon

You must be a moron.Or very inept at the very least.There are many Druid/ranger quests that invole you killing Unkempt Druids.Next time know what your talking about BEFORE opening your mouth.Druid of 18 seasons.

It is a nice quest to do if you are heading that direction for some reason or another.
