temporarily free from crafting, you head to avariatus' cave to find out what the dragon adventurer wants you to hunt down.
ooooo, sahweet! just in time for the holiday, you get to mess with some skellies!! checking your journal gives you directions that sound kinda familiar! you already know where the fallen log is, as you had to pass it to get to the higher level gruoks from an earlier quest. take the monster road out of town and head past the spiders. you will see the dead tree that has fallen overhead on the path, and your quest journal will update. conntinue under the fallen log and almost immediately on your left, you will see a path heading up an incline. at the top of the incline (just fyi - you can run thru the fallen log and explore on the other side of the cliff when you get a moment. istaria is full of little wonders, you just have to go find them!) you will see the camp, surrounded by saris skellies. kill the 5 you need and return to avariatus.
the dragon trainer will praise you and send you back to kerian for more crafting! i believe i have said before that crafting never ends...... (sorry for the quality of the last pic, i obviously messed up. i will attempt to find and replace it later today!)
see you soon with more fun stuff!
addendum: here is the original edited screenie for avariatus' speech at quest end. i was unable to manipulate it enough to show the speech itself and i was only able to decypher a couple sentences. the following is what i could read:
Avariatus tells you, "you found the camp? Excellent. And the new scale and claw helped? I hope you found an opportunity to (use) you new abilities and spells. If not, I assure you that there will be plenty opportunities to do so in the future. You have done well, soknot.......
unfortunately, the rest of the speech i am unable to make out. i promise to be more careful in future!
but speaking of new abilities, i have a great idea for my next post! check back in a day or two for something of important interest to all characters, not just dragons!
