Gruok Head


Ssathe in Sslanis has told you of the ritual of the first hunt. Claw-Guard Ssathe cannot instruct you on the ritual itself. Instead, Ssathe has told you to obtain the head of a Brownsnout Sow, and bring it to Ssthar the Elder in Sslanis. This will prove you are worthy of instruction.


Quest text[edit]

Talk to Ssathe.

The first hunt, yes Gifted One, Ssathe will tell you of this. It is tradition that all Sslik must perform the ritual before being fully accepted into the tribe.

It is no simple matter Gifted One, and many who attempt it do not survive. In recent years, this tradition has been ignored by many young Sslik, Ssathe blames the influence of the other races.

The Sslik pride themselves on prowess and abilities in combat. The ritual of the first hunt is but the start of the path one must walk to become a true Sslik hunter. Ssathe has walked this path, does <player> walk it as well?

It brings Ssathe great joy to hear this. Still, Ssathe has not the wisdom to guide one on this path. <player> must speak to Ssthar the Elder here in Sslanis. Ssthar is wise, Ssthar knows the old ways and traditions the young Sslik must learn. However, Ssthar does not give this guidance to just anyone.

<player> must prove to Ssthar that <player> has the potential to succeed in the ritual. Before Ssthar the Elder will teach <player>, <player> must bring Ssthar the head of a Brownsnout Sow. If <player> has the skill to bring down a wild beast, perhaps <player> will be able to perform the ritual after all. These Gruok are often found in the hills to the east of town.

<player> learns slowly. Go kill a Brownsnout Sow and bring the beast's head to Ssthar the Elder in Sslanis. The Brownsnouts are often seen east of town.


Kill a Brownsnout Sow found east of Sslanis in the hills.
