      You say, 'Hail, Diplomat Dirtlick'

      Diplomat Dirtlick looks frightened by your presence and says hurriedly, 'Don't kill me! Please, I need to convince these stubborn goblins that they should form a military alliance with my people. Can you [help:I will help the Legion.] me in a very... unconventional way?'

      You say, 'I will help the Legion.'

      You have been assigned the task 'By Smile or By Guile'.

      Diplomat Dirtlick casts an illusion on you so you appear to be a Legion soldier and says, 'I need you to pretend to be a Legion soldier and fight alongside the Drogan below. It's the fastest way to convince them the Legion would be a strong military ally!'

      Make sure to keep this illusion until you are done with the task or else you will fail.

    • Aid Drogan Eradicators in battle as a Burnai. 0/5 Frontier Mountains

      Kill pairs of the Syldon Vanguards that are attacking the Drogan Eradicators around Droga.

      After you kill a pair of them you'll see an emote "a Drogan eradicator looks at you during the break in fighting, clearly impressed." That counts for 1 task update. You need to kill 5 pairs total.

    • Return to Diplomat Dirtlick 0/1 Frontier Mountains

      You say, 'Hail, Diplomat Dirtlick'

      Oops! Diplomat Dirtlick tries to transform you back into your original form, but he's not very good at magic yet. He got a few things wrong.

      Your task 'By Smile or By Guile' has been updated.

      You helped Diplomat Dirtlick convince some of the Drogan goblins that the burynai could be useful in combat against the sarnak. Which may or may not be actually true, since it was you who helped them. Diplomacy is confusing.

      You receive 5 gold .
      You receive 106 platinum .
      You gain experience!!

      Diplomat Dirtlick removes your illusion and says quietly, 'I've already heard the Drogan talking about you, Dwarf. Hopefully the news continues to spread. Thank you for your aid. You may leave now.'

      If the illusion drops from dying or casting another illusion, you no longer get credit for the kills. You have to return and hail the diplomat to get the illusion back.
      I pulled a pair of Slydons to the end of the north side zone. Once they died the Drogan stayed there and the Slydons repoped one at a time ran at the Drogans, I picked them off as I needed no mob control required.
      Illusion fun
