Prerequisites and NotesEdit

  • You must speak Krombral (Giant language) in order to receive this quest.
  • You must have completed Little Tarby Lost to receive this quest.
  • Crafting ability to successfully complete a level 9 tradeskill combine. (Can be completed via the Commission system of crafting)
  • You might want to do The Dusty Blue Stone, a prerequisite for Restoring Ghoulbane while on this quest. It requires you to get 40 rock samples from wind swept stones, which can be done at the same time as one of the steps on this quest.
  • You also might want to do Journeyman Service it requires 50 harvest in this zone as well which can be done while doing the others.
  • If you have completed the Sundered Splitpaw questline and gotten your "a glowing azure shard" you can use this to get back to Thundering Steppes very easily once you finish with the forge.

Steps Edit

  1. Examine the Cracked Stone Hand Axe that Obsid gives you for finding his pet bear, Tarby Boulderboom.
  2. Mine 10 granite pieces, an uncommon harvest from wind swept stones in The Thundering Steppes. This may take some time to complete. One nearby mining area is the region around the Ruins of Karana ( -392, -3, 459 ) /waypoint -392.34, -2.98, 459.01. Also run the full length of Dead River Basin where you will find nodes. There are also generally a few nodes around The Shrine of Decay ( 343, 1, 1155 ) /waypoint 343.21, 1.48, 1155.05. This update is uncommon to rare.
  3. At a forge in any tradeskill center, combine the pristine granite with a piece of severed ash, a sparkling material, a glimmering coal, and the Cracked Stone Hand Axe from Obsid, creating a dull tomahawk.
    • Note: You have to be at least Artisan Level 9 to scribe the recipe. (recipe can be completed using the commission system)
  4. Return to Obsid to show him the axe.
  5. Sharpen the axe by killing 100 skeletons in the The Thundering Steppes. Try ( 126, -22, 756 ) /waypoint 126.46, -22.24, 756.47 for 6 skeletons with fast respawn.
  6. Return to Obsid to show him the axe.
    • Note: a timer for the next step starts as soon as you finish speaking to him.
  7. Within a one hour time limit, kill 25 Skindancer gnolls. (Various locations; ( 543, -24, 1130 ) /waypoint 543, -24, 1130Skindancer Sentry, Skindancer Seer, Skindancer Legionnaire, Skindancer Knight or Skindancer Defiler all give updates for this step)
  8. Return to Obsid.
  9. Enter the Cove of Decay and slay the The Octagorgon for its ink. Note that this giant octopus cannot be pulled out of the water, and shortly after engaging it, a group of heroic skeletons will spawn.
