What does this information mean?

Spawning RotweedEdit

  • Step onto the island in the middle of Teardrop Cave and three Rotweed Thistles appear, linked.
  • If you remain on the island and kill them AND are lower than level 16, Rotweed will spawn immediately. If you're level 16 or higher Rotweed may not spawn.

Bug FixesEdit

  • To avoid the potential bug, it is recommended that after stepping on to the island (regardless of your level, and especially if you are completing the quest grayed out) that you back up to the cave mouth once again, and kill the Rotweed Thistles one at a time. Standing back with the third and final Thistle defeated should spawn Rotweed on the island. This technique was confirmed 2 January 2009 using an 80 Bruiser.
  • Alternatively, or if the above method doesn't work, delete the quest and return to Empress Anassa, who will re-issue you the quest.
