The purpose of this quest is to aid the Wailing Lord in presenting a gift of three Forest Griffons to Balthazar.
*Escort all three Forest Griffons safely to the Tower of Courage.
*See Rastigan the Eternal for your reward.
* 10,000 Experience
The best way to fulfill this quest, is to not go near the griffons, and clear the way back to Rastigan first. Keep in mind that even if you've cleared the way before taking the quest, new creatures will spawn that need to be removed before getting the griffons.
Be clear with your teammates to not approach them, otherwise they'll follow you and easily get killed. The death of only one of them will result in a wipe.
:"Please...perhaps you can help me. I wish to express to Balthazar my sincere respect and admiration. I offer three forest Griffons that have served me since their acceptance into this eternal realm as hounds for the God of War. You shall find them scattered throughout the forest. If you would be so kind as to gather all three and lead them to the Tower of Courage, I would be in your debt."
- Accept: "I'll see to it at once."
:Decline: "Do it yourself!"
