The Balance of Nature

This quest begins with Brother Dhar of the Whistling Fists Clan. You'll find him on the 1st floor of the Tower of the Four Winds (27, 36, -164).

However, before you may enter the Tower in the first place, you must have completed Improving Relations with the Locals and The Stolen Tome quests. After you're done with them, you can try to answer a series of questions from Brother Lika. You'll find him just outside the tower door (16, 34, -154).

You will learn the answers to these questions by listening to Master Long Shan's speech. Talk to Brother Lika and then wait for Master Long Shan in the courtyard at 6:30am game time. When you're ready, go back and answer Brother Lika's questions, which will be given to you randomly from the list below. If you answer one incorrectly, you must wait five minutes before you can try again.

After you have correctly answered the questions, head to Brother Dhar (27, 36, -164). He wants you to go to Mystic Lake to aid the dryads in their defense against the Pirates of Gunthak.


1) After zoning to Mystic Lake, speak with Brother Fritzen (229, -47, 319). He wants you to kill 4 Gunthak Ransakers, 4 Gunthak Poachers and 4 Gunthak Plunderers. You'll find these in the woods close to Brother Fritzen.

2) When you're finished your Gunthak slaughtering, return to Brother Fritzen. You'll be sent in search of a cure for Fritzen's illness.

3) Talk to the old treant Eddrelon in the woods (128, -38, 86). This is an attackable mob, so you may need to wait for respawn.

4) Head back to Brother Fritzen. Fritzen will want to confuse the pirates with news of a rare book.

5) Return to the Village of Shin to seek out Brother Miles in the Tower of Four Winds (24, 36, -169).

6) After talking with Miles, speak with Chief Ko-Ma Nurwin in the Courtyard of Hope (45, 15, -119).

7) Go back to Brother Miles to complete assembly of the book.

8) Now go back to Brother Fritzen in Mystic Lake.

9) Fritzen will send you to speak to Glurglek the Blade in the Gunthak Pirate Camp (58, -38, 291). You will need to convince him to leave the island. To ensure success, choose these responses:

Response 1: Why would I want to drive you away?
Response 2: Actually, I could care less about the treasure you're looking for.
Response 3: Let's just say it isn't worth the effort for a pirate like me.
Response 4: Yes, I'm a pirate and I love treasure. I admit I came here looking for the same loot you did. But let's just say I found something that changed my mind.
Response 5: Ha, you're funny! That book you stole was outdated. I have new information that... Oh, nevermind. Guess I'm a better pirate that you. I'm (your name) the pirate. YARRRR!
Response 6: No, I don't think so. I need to be going. I don't want anyone to beat me to the... Umm, forget I said anything.
Response 7: I stole a different book from the monks. It was the journal of the village chief.
Response 8: It says the village has already found the treasure and moved it.
Response 9: No way! The treasure is mine.
Response 10: That's hardly worth my while. You'll have to do better.
Response 11: Hmmm. How much gold are we talking?
Response 12: I suppose it's a deal. Here, come and take a look at this book. You better have my gold ready!
Response 13: Hey, give me back my book!
Response 14: Where is my 500 gold! I demand you give me my book!

10) Return to Brother Fritzen, who will send you back to the Village of Shin.

11) Finally, talk with Brother Dhar to complete the quest and select your reward.
