first on our adventurer trainer tour, we go back the the cave next to the cauldron, under the crystal island. we first visited it to make the acquintance of the craft trainer, miemonus.
today, however, we will meet the spiked scales trainer, rykhar. spiked scales is the dragon's version of the druid buff, cloak of thorns (vel actually took up druid just to get this buff). and it is very handy!!! def a go-to part of any good battle plan...
anyhoo - a refresher on getting to the cave, it has been a while! from the port pad, head down the cliff and head for the cave entrance. approach rykhar and listen to the trainer's speech outlining the quest. check your quest journal for details, of course! now, i just need to head up north near the lairshaper cave and the ravine and hunt down some fire ogres!
adventurer training quests, appropriately enough, require killing rather than crafting. you will eventually explore most of istaria doing these sorts of quests, as the critters you are set against are rarely tidily grouped together in one convenient place. also, they will be appropriately difficult to do solo. i have one quest i can show from start to finish, because it was the only one i could do without assistance. i hope to show you that quest next time!! come back soon for more!
