There are random public quests all over Norrath spawning.
The public quest will be gone, as soon as the mobs have been killed!
You may have to chrono mentor to an appropriate level to be able to hit the mobs.
The public quests will will show up as a blue areas on the map. You can also right click on the mini map, and deselect all but the "other" check boxes. This will allow the PQ icon to stand out.
