    This is one of five tasks leading up to "The Staff Retreat" and the group progression mission for Morell's Castle, "Hippity Hoppity Kill".

    It's a solo task that begins with Zairia who is found at approximate location 860, 1200, 60 (inside the house in the candyland area).

    There are no pre-requisites for requesting this task.

    You say, 'Hail, Zairia'

    Zairia says 'What a young and vibrant _____ you are. Tell me, do you like [sweets]?'

    You say, 'I like sweets!'

    Zairia says 'My sisters and I are masters of confections. Children flock from distant lands just to get a tiny taste of some of the sweet treats we conjure. Of course, there is a small [price] to pay for delighting in our delectables.'

    You say, 'What price?'

    Zairia says 'A bite of hedgeberry pie comes at the cost of a smidgen of life, which will help this aging witch bask in the grace and beauty of youth once more! Don't give me that look. It's not like the pudgy little candy hoarders around here will miss it much. All they care about is filling their rolling bellies with sweets and [treats]!'

    You say, 'Treats?'

    Zairia says 'The halfling youngsters can't resist a hedgeberry pie. Unfortunately, they've learned not to trust taking treats from a haggard old witch like myself. I need someone with a fresh face to [help] me lure the little candy hoarders into my house.'

    You say, 'I'll help'

    Zairia grins mischievously while tapping her fingers together with obvious delight. 'Splendid! Together, you and I will create a positively delicious hedgeberry pie, but first, I'll need help collecting some [ingredients].

    You say, 'What ingredients?'

    Zairia says 'Hedgeberries dangle from the branches of hedgewalkers, but those fickle treants always grumble, 'Over my dead trunk!' when I ask to pluck a few. You can arrange that, I'm sure.' Zairia licks her withered lips with a sly grin and adds, 'Don't forget the speckled rabbit meat. You'd really be surprised at its sweetness! And of course, no pie could be complete without a dash of hopes and dreams, snatched easily enough from the few daydreams that float in the area.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Suspiciously Sweet Treats'.

    Zairia is a master when it comes to curiously sweet treats, but she needs your help gathering a few ingredients to make a special pie, one that is sure to send anyone who eats it into a sugar craze!

  • 1. Loot 4 Hedgeberries 0/4 (Morell's Castle)

  • 2. Loot 2 Speckled Rabbit Meat 0/2 (Morell's Castle)

  • 3. Loot 1 Dream Fragment 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

    The above items are common drops from treants, speckled rabbits, and daydreams (respectively).

  • 4. Give the Hedgeberries to Zairia 0/4 (Morell's Castle)

  • 5. Give the Speckled Rabbit Meat to Zairia 0/2 (Morell's Castle)

  • 6. Give the Dream Fragment to Zairia 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

  • 7. Speak to Zairia 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

    You say, 'Hail, Zairia'

    Zairia says 'You've done a fine job, _____. Now I'll need a full jug of enchanted water, which only spills from the falls on the castle wall. You can't miss the cascade, as it flows from a magical mural that hangs on the wall at the northern edge of the stream. The jug is rather large, and may take a while to fill. Be patient and you will be rewarded.'

  • 8. Collect a jug of water from the castle wall falls 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

  • 9. Wait near the wall falls while the jug fills with water 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

    The above-two steps update at the north end of the forest's river, under the waterfall.

    WARNING: A shellscale guard spawns on you as you get these two updates. Its difficulty is on par with regular trash mobs in the zone. It's mezzable, stunnable, hits for a max ~9,000. (You don't actually have to kill it as long as you can lose its aggro.)

  • 10. Give the Jug of Enchanted Water to Zairia 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

    Zairia says 'Many thanks. I'll whip up a pie in the blink of an eye!'

  • 11. Speak to Zairia 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

    You say, 'Hail, Zairia'

    Zairia says 'Be cautious. The candy hoarders around here are hostile little things who protect their sweets at all costs. Find a hungry halfling and lure them with the hedgeberry pie. Once you have, the rest should be a piece of cake!'

  • 12. Use the Hedgeberry Pie on a hungry halfling 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

    A hungry halfling is located in the area out front of the house. Target him and right-click the pie.

  • 13. Lead the candy-crazed halfling to the oven 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

    He will lead himself there.

  • 14. Collect the Charred Halfling Remains 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

    The charred remains spawn inside the oven after the halfling toasts himself.

  • 15. Give the Charred Halfling Remains to Zairia 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

  • 16. Speak to Zairia 0/1 (Morell's Castle)

    You say, 'Hail, Zairia'

    Zairia sighs and looks at her hands, which are once again withered. 'It looks like a little halfling doesn't go a long way. I'd better get back to baking. Thanks for your generous help.

    Thanks to your culinary prowess and sneaky ways, Zairia has been able to temporarily reclaim her youthful appearance.

    Don't need to lead the suicidal hungry halfling into the furnace. He goes on his own.

    I had three people getting updates on this task - the first person popped the Scaleguard, the others got their jug without additional Scaleguard's popping.

    Got just over 2 AAs for this task (Level 90 on 100% AA). Went from 0 AA at 86%, to 2 AA at 91%. No Lesson or other exp. effects at time of reward. Also gave 158p and 20 Dream Motes.

    Additional note: Upon handing Zaria the charred halfling remains, she changes form to a female elf (don't recall if wood or high). After hailing her, she reverts to the witch form and says the final dialogue with a sigh.
