Slay 5 Stonard Peons.


I want victory to be totally assured here. Having more resources isn't enough; we need to make sure the enemy has nothing.

Stonard's forces depend on the lumber gathered from the surrounding woods. The orcish peons that chop the lumber may not be warriors, but they still know nothing but hate for humans.

Show no mercy. I want those peons killed and the supply of lumber to Stonard cut off completely.


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
Inv helmet 180v1.png [Helm of the Gatherer] Inv chest mail 17v3.png [Merciless Breastplate]
Inv shoulder 137.png [Balanced Pauldrons]

You will also receive: 80s


Have you taken care of those peons?


We've had strikes on our own lumber line while you've been gone. This should at least put us on equal footing for gathering rates.

Good work, <name>.


Pick up B [15-30] Orcs and Humans before heading out. The two quests offered by Holaaru, The Lost Ones and A [15-30] Draenethyst Crystals, are not directly connected to these, and lead to another storyline. Come back later to pick them up.

Exit town to the southwest and start killing. Pretty much anything that moves. The peons are southwest of the Bloodmire proper, closer to Stonard.
