pratt quests - picking on the little guy

the next town marshall quest from the good steward of new trimus we shall explore is 'picking on the little guy'.  choose it from the list after greeting pratt in the usual way.

i know i keep remarking on it, but the training island has changed a lot over the last couple years.  so these quests will be as new to me as they are to you - my new trismus is gone, and i have to relearn where things are.  please bare with me during the learning process!!  i tell you this because i forgot to take some early screenies and had to redo them, so observant readers might notice some slight differences in continuity in some places, but it will not affect the overall accuracy of the post.  one of the screenies i wasn't able to redo, however, was pratt's opening quest speech.  and the wiki does not give it, unfortunately.  for this, i apologise.

anyhoo, i did manage to get a screenie of the quest journal, which has all the needed info.  you need to head west, to the beach in the middle of the island's coast, and take out 20 aug'kuk gatherers, including their leader, grit.   back in the day, all the 'kuk critters were known as pygmies and ogres.  these are tough creatures who like to aggro - and they don't care what level you are.  for me, they were as flies - for low levels, this is a very challenging quest.  my advice is to do it with others or have a babysitter.

to get to the beach, take the portal road that leads to the resource fields.  be careful as you pass thru the cedar trees, as the wolves there like to feast on newb flesh.  follow the fork in the road that leads to the ore field and the metal workstation (wave hi to guran as you pass!), continuing around the cliffs until you see the camp ahead.  be careful all thru this area, as the grass beets also like to aggro on low level alts.  there is no road to the beach, instead you have to run thru the valley before the camp.  you can run all the way thru the valley, but i just jump off the cliff in front of the turning.  you end up right in the middle of the pygmy camp.

you should see at lest one pyg as soon as you hit the beach, it is infested with them.  you will have no problems getting your 20 and not having to wait for respawn - but remember, one of the requirement pygs must be grit the warrior, the leader of this tribe.  you can find him at the southern end of the beach, patrolling the area near the skeleton.  your journal and chat will let you know when you can return to pratt.

to get back, you have to take the long way, running the pyg gauntlet.  head down the beach until you reach the entrance to the valley.   run up the valley until you reach the camp area, and take the road back east, just the way you came, until you reach pratt again.  speak to the steward to get your reward, then speak to him again to see that both the town marshalls and the picking on the little guy quests are no longer available.

 

well, that was fun, wasn't it?  join me again soon for another fun and exciting quest!

pratt quests - the town marshalls of istaria

the first town marshall quest we will do isn't even really a town marshall quest, altho it does explain about town marshalls and is given by a town marshall - specifically, steward pratt mcgrubben of new trismus town.  we have spoken and taken quests to the good steward before, altho that was before the destruction of the town and the invasion of the withered aegis.  also, this quest is not yet covered on the wiki, so, at the moment, this is the only tutorial i can find for the quest.

you can find pratt on patrol near the ruins of the shrine, center of town.  approach and greet him as usual - he has a very longwinded but important speech to give, so feel free to listen to the whole tale.  i will not be doing that, as it is very long and not relevant to the current purpose.  you will notice, however, the list of quests the steward has to offer.  today, we are choosing 'the town marshalls of istaria' quest.  click that link and listen to him talk about town marshalls in general.

pratt will talk a bit more at you as your quest journal advises to respeak to him.  this is the part where you get the actual quest, so your quest journal and game chat will reflect that.

hop on the southern road out of town, head past rancher elden and his ranch until you reach the flax fields.  here you will also find the grulets you seek (in the old days, the grulets were not here.  now that they are, there is a purpose for the hide workstation located in the middle of the flax fields.....).  this quest is meant to be doable but challenging for alts of level 6 - 10, as befits training island quests.  

lay waste to the grulets until you have the required 10 written in the ded book.  your quest journal advises returning to the steward, so head back to town.  greet pratt and get his thanx and reward.  when you speak to him again, you will get his standard speech, but notice that the quest list no longer shows the 'town marshalls' quest as available.

 

that's the first town marshall quest down.  join me again soon for another steward pratt adventure!

and finally, after all the delays

i do eventually keep my word.  with that in mind, we shall begin exploration of a subset of adventure quests - the town marshal quests.  

every racial city (not the settlements or guild towns) has a town marshal.  we have even met one or two, in the course of our other adventures.  starting in new trismus (even with the changes), you can get these repeatable quests every 5 adventure levels.  as with most adventure type quests, the marshal quests involve killing or otherwise defeating a certain number of level appropriate critters.  

the rewards are also level appropriate, and consist of emblems (icons that bestow a title, a pre- or suffix to your alt's name), tokens of gratitude, units of currency (worth 10cp of game coin) used to purchase items from the town marshals, and technique kits (used to alter weapons, armor, and tools in some small way).

 

when next we meet, we will start at the beginning, with the quests to be found in new trismus.  hope to see you again soon!

still getting the next series ready, but in the meantime
