General Quest

Humfrey agrees to give you another riddle.

NOTE: While this is a solo quest, I would recommend that you bring along a friend or two, which will make the continual burning of your pants from the salamanders more bearable. Brasse, a level 37 Guardian, and myself, a level 39 Hunter, conquered this quest. Also, thank you to Brasse for helping me with the wordage on this quest!


1) Solve Humfrey Rumming's riddle. Humfrey says to you:

"Foul great beasts with sharpened claws; Black-furred pelts and fanged maws; Coursing the woods, they take their prey; Torment their victim, at last to slay."

This one sounds like a Warg, so let's try that chest. From Humfrey, head south, and follow the curve of the mountain slightly around to the west, and you'll find it partway up the hill (12.4s, 72w).

(Brasse'note: I did not take a screenie of the Warg Chest, but have marked it on the map below, as it is just north of and visible from the Bat Chest you already obtained)

2) Bring token of the Warg to Humfrey Rumming.

3) After you speak with them and select "Finish Now", you get your coin reward, XP, and you will now be able to take the next quest, Rumming's Remaining Riddle.
