Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Sif Shadowhunter

"Are you ready to tackle a worthy quest, <character name>? In the highest icy reaches live the glacial griffons. They are deadly and prey mostly on wolves, bears, and other large game. I have spread wolf carcasses around the village to attract one of these beasts. Your task is simple: single-handedly slay a glacial griffon. Only then will your deeds be worthy of song; only then will your fame rise to the level of a true Norn."
Yes Accept: "I'll put that beast on ice."
No Decline: "Do I get a song for NOT killing things?"
Ask Ask: "You will be removed from your party to face the glacial griffon alone. Are you ready?"
Yes I am ready.
No I am not ready.

Reward dialogue[edit]

Sif Shadowhunter

"What a welcome sight! I didn't expect you to return, <character name>. At least, not in one piece. Slaying the glacial griffon is a deed worthy of many songs, starting with this one.
Hail! Hail! Witness the skill!
Body parts stewn, fresh from the kill
<character name>, you are second to none
May your legend ring true from dusk 'til sun
Catchy, eh? Well... it's a work in progress."

Notes[edit]

  • During the quest, there are six exploitable White Wolf corpses.
  • You get credit for completing this quest if you kill the Griffon, even if you die.

Good Skill-Bar for Warrior to deal with the Griffon: OQgjEhUqIT2kGG+F1iAG4kXTMTA You need to rupt the shadow-song and try to avoid getting into range of the spirits. Just let the Griffin bleed down with your attack-skills. If you are about to die, leave aggro to your spirits and recover.
