Wood Ogre Menace
DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different
This is the first of the Wood Ogre quests. This one is just a series of delivery tasks; the others will require thinning out specific wood ogre types. If binding for this quest, consider binding at the dock just over the border into the Avalon Marsh; loc = 45 , 19. It's not a lot further away from the action than Caer Ulfwych in the CF is, and you have the SI portal guy on the dock which lets you get many places a lot faster than horses.
0) Start out by talking to Langston Fall, the weapon (flail) merchant in the shed west of the tower. He explains how the wood ogres have recently started raiding the merchants' wagon trains to the South. Lord Ulfwych has assigned a Hunter to fix the problem, but it seems to be getting nowhere and the trade is shutting down. He asks you to check with Lord Ulfwych to see what progress there is.
1) Click on Lord Ulfwych, who is the pally trainer just inside the tower, and say "Langston" to him. He tells you he only has the one hunter, Hunter Valdis, to work the problem, and that Hunter Valdis "has shortcomings." He tells you to go ask the Hunter directly to see what's going on.
2) Hunter Valdis is in the tower just East of the foot of the lake, East of the border with Avalon Marsh; loc = 20.5 , 53.7. The easiest way to get there is to follow the road down and around; cutting diagonally through the woods will walk you through a couple groups of mobs and ultimately the wood ogre camp. Hunter Valdis asks you why you are bothering him when he has such an important mission, whines about being micromanaged, and finally gives you a report on the status of the wood ogre incursion.
3) Take the report back to Langston Fall and give it to him. He says that things are worse than he thought, gives you the reward, and if you are still 20 tells you to come back when you're older.
