* This quest is given
by Shinwiki the Toad Savage shaman. In exchange for riding their
"Toadem Place" of the evil, they will give you a Magic spear
and some powder.
This quest is actually quite simple and straight forward. The only
misstep I had was the start. I didn't realize how to get to the Toadem
place. Right next to the shaman is a trapdoor with ladder leading
down. Take this. (Rather than searching the entire lake area...)
Basically this trapdoor leads to a tunnel under the water and over to
an isolated Toad hut.
outside of the hut, and wade ashore. Once ashore, follow the path to
your right (it's really the only way to go.) Shortly you come to the
Toadem Place. and once you step inside the boundaries Four Scabban
Evils pop out of the ground, and start spewing swamp gas at you. It
has the same effect as nausea, so you have a fairly decent chance of
gagging instead of striking a
3. The four Scabban evils sit one to a corner of the clearing, so you
will have to move to each one in turn. They were as tough as Scabban
was from the Crypt, although it's worse because there are four of
them. However a party of 2 warriors, level 5, one Paladin level 2, one
Rogue, level 6, one Warlock level 2 and one Priest, level 6 were able
to handle the evils. BTW, all four will be attacking you at the same
time with their ranged gas attack. It
doesn't really hurt you much, just impairs you. It's when you are
standing toe to toe with one of them. I am not trying to say however
that no damage will occur, because I noticed my priest got knocked
around a little bit.
4. At the far end of the Toadem is a chest filled with some nice goodies,
cash, and some items. All you have to do now is retrace your steps to
the shaman, and receive your reward. The spear is very nice, +1 hit +1
enchant. The powder is fairly common stuff, so If you use it, keep it,
else sell it for some cash. And that is all.
In your conversation with Scabban in the Crypt he mentions that
several apprentices fled the compound and succumbed to the
"Evil" so this quest nicely finishes off that story branch.
One side note, you may want to pick up the Smith quest of finding out what's
going on in the toad village, and kill two birds with one stone.
