Quest information[edit]

Requirements[edit]

Objectives[edit]

  • Meet Dajwa on the Cliffs of Dohjok to help him recover his ring.
  • Help Dajwa find and slay the skree harpy that stole his pie.
  • Search the harpy nests for the missing ring. You have searched n of 5 nests.
  • See Dajwa for your reward.

Reward[edit]

Walkthrough[edit]

Foes in this quest will be of level 8, if you and your heroes/henchmen are lower, you can leave it for later until you level up a bit. An alternative approach is to start from Jokanur Diggings which provides level 9 henchmen.

Enter the Cliffs of Dohjok and speak to Dajwa. Follow the first quest marker location to a corpse, and subsequently to all of the harpy nests. Due to the close proximity of the nests with each other, it is easy to get overwhelming aggro if you charge right in. Pull harpies to isolate each group and dispatch them with ease. Try to take out the Skree Hatchling early, to remove their healer. Eventually you will find the ring. Return to Champion's Dawn and see Dajwa for your reward.

Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Dajwa
"I'm done for. She'll never have me now. I won't even get to ask the question. Can't propose without a ring, can I? I had it all planned. It was going to be a big surprise. See, I baked the ring into a pie for my love. When she took a bite, she would find it and we'd live happily ever after. But some stupid skree harpy ate my pie and ran off to the Cliffs of Dohjok. I know. I will find the harpy and slay it! It's a quest; a quest for love's shiny token. You wouldn't happen to know how to kill a harpy would you? Or have a spear I could borrow?"
Yes Accept: "I like pie."
No Decline: "What kind of idiot bakes a ring into a pie?"
Ask Ask: "Meet me on the Cliffs of Dohjok and we will hunt down the harpy that stole my ring!"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Dajwa
"Wow, you came! So, I guess we should get moving. That skree harpy is around here somewhere."
"Look there! I guess my pie did the work for us. Heh. Maybe it was a good thing I didn't get the chance to feed it to my love."
"Blast! It's not here. Maybe the harpy found it and stashed it before finishing my pie. We should search the harpy nests nearby."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Dajwa
"Oh, happy day! You think if I wash it off, she'll notice the harpy smell? I guess now the only beast left to face is my love."

Notes[edit]

  • The quest Queen of the Quarry spawns three sunspears allies which can strengthen your fire power to complete this quest.
