What does this information mean?


  1. Slay 10 bears in Butcherblock Mountains
  2. Return to Trapper Coalbear

This quest is an obvious cultural reference to Comedy Central's, Stephen Colbert. He has a segment on his show called, "Threat Down", where he counts down the top 5 threats to America, the world, etc. There is / was a long running joke about bears being the number one threat to America (and Stephen Colbert hating bears).

He is also alluded to in a Lord of the Rings Online quest having to do with bears as well.
