well, that brief interlude was fun, but now it's back to work time!
if you remember, the dragon adventure trainer has sent you back to kerian for your next quest. this is a long one, so i will be breaking it up into at least 2 parts.
when you greet the dragon craft trainer, you are instructed to first find and then harvest some dim essence. by now, if you haven't found it already, you should be familiar enough with the area to locate them easily. however, this quest requires trigger points - you will need to take the proper 'long' way, per instructions.
first step is to head to the sandstone field and pratt's pond. approach the pond and run around the shore until the trigger tells you that you found the pond (the pond is located at the bottom of the screenie, if you aren't familiar with it already). run toward the edge of the waterfall and head down. if you have the gliding option enabled, you can jump off and glide to the clearing below, or you can just fall down and end up in the stream between the essence work station and the field with the dim wisps. harvesting the wisps is basically the same as gathering any other resource. choose a wisp (they move, so you have to stay with them until you start harvesting), activate your essence harvesting ability, harvest the wisps and use the convenient ews to make the needed orbs. your quest journal and chat log will update when you have enough. return to kerian for your next step in the quest.
see, you get to beat up on some beets while crafting something!! see you soon to show you how to get a beet carapace!
