Spicket, Spackit and Spykit
DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different
Mannix is an firbolg merchant in Mag Mell.
Mannix says, "Aye, friend. Have you traveled much yet? If so, you may have encountered those strange spraggon roaming around here as of late. They are very foul tempered, not to mention they have been destroying crops and fields all around the area. Typical spraggon behavior. Right alongside assaulting travelers and stealing their goods. These three, though, they've got some [magical stuff] on them, I'd bet anything on it."
Mannix says, "Well see, these three, they aren't like the others. One's super strong, the other is said to be as quick as anything and the third is said to be quick witted. So, it's got to be magic. I bet that one of your skill could overcome these creatures. I bet you could overcome one of them in their lair, if you're interested. So, I'm telling you, you kill one of these spraggon, there's bound to be praise, and a prize."
Mannix continues: "But I don't think you would want to take them all on just yet. Tell me, what would you rather have? You kill one of these three, and you can keep their little magical charm. Just bring proof of their death to Tethra, in Ardee. He's a great hatred of spraggon, you know. So which would you prefer? The spraggon with [strength], the [dexterous] one, or the one that seems a bit [smarter]?"
Select one of the three, and Mannix gives you directions to them.
Select strength, and you get directions to find Spicket. He appears at night in the woods to the west of the bridge on the road north from Ardee. Kill him and he drops Spicket's Head, and Spicket's Belt. Was right at the small hill behind MagMell at night. Had to kill 3 Spraggons before he spawned. Ran right toward me.
Select dexterous, and you get directions to find Spackit. He appears at night in the east-west valley to the northeast of Mag Mell. Kill him, and he drops Spacket's Head (sic) and Spackit's Bracer.
Select smarter and you get directions to find Spykit. He's the easiest to find, appearing at night on the other side of a small hill just northeast of Mag Mell. Kill him, and he drops Spykit's Head, and Spykit's Ring.
The three quests appear to be mutually exclusive. You can only get the magical item off the named spraggon you originally chose.
Tethra is in Ardee, loc=54782, 54651, 5201 inside the house in the middle on the first floor. Look for the little Lurikeen.
Bring any of the spraggons' heads to Tethra, a Lurikeen in Ardee. He says, "Ah! A spraggon head! I've not enough of these. It seems they multiply faster than we can rid the land of them. Tell me, I've heard strange things. I wonder, is there any truth to the [rumor] I've been hearing?"
Tethra says, "Yes then, there are some that seem to posess (sic) this strange ability to grow in size, though I'm told not many can. I suppose it matters not. You're a brave (character class), to have defeated this infamous spraggon. Have you defeated [many more]?"
Tethra says, "Have you their heads then? I will pay you for each head, friend, if you give them to me. Or have you [no more heads]? You have done a great thing in killing these spraggon. They are horrible. They run through the land, tearing up good fields, destroying."
Tethra says, "There is said to be an item of magical enchantment on the spraggon you killed, the large one. You didn't mention it. Perhaps you didn't find it? He may have hidden it somewhere. That's what they normally do. Could you please search for this enchanted item? I have a personal interest in it. I believe it would be hidden by the bridge on the road to Druim Ligen."
Go to the bridge north of Ardee and step on it. (OR-- It's UNDER the bridge. You have to swim under the bridge. Search awhile and you'll get a message that says some thing like "something catches your eye" and it will automatically be placed in your inventory.) You see the text, "You see a reflection from something shiny out of the corner of your eye. You find a partially opened bag hidden under the bridge. In the bag you see the cracked mirror that first caught your attention. You close the bag and place it in one of your larger packs. You have received a Spraggon Bag.
Go back to Tethra in Ardee, and hand him the bag.
Tethra says, "Thank you, Warden. The spraggon have been unusually villianous (sic), and I mean to find out why. This may help us. Good day to you, Warden, and please, consider spraggon hunting a sport. You're quite good at it."
