Troubles to Come

Epic - Prologue Hobbit Quest

Halros wants you to warn Bounder Primstone that the goblins have two camps are a definite threat.


1) Talk to Bounder Primstone, inside the Brockenborings Watch Office on the west side of Brockenborings (27.5s, 68.1w). Primstone tells you to go to Scary and find out what is happening at the quarry.

2) Talk to Wilcome Tunnelly in Scary, east of Brockenborings. He is in the center of town (27.9s, 66.3w). He tells you about an evil-looking skull in the quarry that has possibly attracted many spiders.

3) After you speak with him and select "Finish Now", you get XP, and you will now be able to take the next quest, The Quarry in Scary.
