you will get to know evenitas well, at least if you are smart. almost everything a dragon can make requires the use of metal in some form - certainly most armour and techs. the trainer, of course, offers level appropriate quests - in my case, gathering cobalt ore.
in order to get the quest, you speak to the trainer, as with all trainers. keep in mind that dralk has a lot of resources in relatively safe areas close together, and that you can take more than one quest at a time. also remember that non crafting quests sometimes have a timer on completion, which i will explain more when we get to umbelroth.......
anyway, head to the cob field outside of dralk, collect the ore (ore only, do not convert it to bars in the craft cave next to the field, haul it back to dralk, and have evenitas laugh at your mistake before sending you back out to get just the ore.....), and return to the floating island to get your reward.
next time we meet, i will take you into the more dangerous area where a couple trainers are waiting to meet you. it's easy to die getting to these trainers, so keep that in mind!
