Type Secondary quest

Help hedge wizard Mabai with some chores in the Garden of Serborhin, before you all go off and try out his new magic.

Quest information[edit]


  • Exterminate the Seborhin Pests.
  • Kneel to water the garden plants. You have [6...0] more plants to water.
  • Pick up all fallen leaves. [10...0] leaf piles left.
  • Carry the leaf bags up the stairs. [3...0] leaf bags left.
  • See Hedge Wizard Mabai for your reward.


Environmental changes[edit]

  • Once this quest is completed, the Seborhin Pests will no longer spawn in the Garden of Seborhin.


All the tasks here are pretty easy to perform and take place in the paved garden area in front of Mabai.

The groups of Seborhin Pests are all located near to Mabai. To water the plants, walk over and stand by each one indicated on the map, and use the /kneel emote to water them. The leaf piles can be picked up by clicking on them like loot items. Likewise, each of the leaf bags must be picked up and carried to the top of the stairs to the left of where Mabai is waiting: you will automatically drop each bag once it has been carried far enough to satisfy the quest.

Note that the tasks do not have to be done in order: the plants can be watered as soon as the quest is accepted from Mabai as long as you know where you need to kneel, without needing to kill the pests first (the quest log does not reflect this). The leaf piles will appear as soon as all six plants are watered, and the quest log will simultaneously display the objectives for both killing the pests and picking up the leaf piles. The leaf bags appear once all the other objectives are completed.


Initial dialogue[edit]

Hedge Wizard Mabai

"I need to finish some chores before we depart on our grand adventure! The caretaker won't let me leave until work is done. It'll go quite a bit faster if you'd lend a hand. What do you say? Are you ready to get your hands dirty?"
Yes Accept: "Check out my green thumb!"
No Decline: "achoo!* My allergies are kicking in. Maybe next season...."
Ask Ask: "My chores aren't finished yet. Help me with them and we can leave this place!"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Hedge Wizard Mabai: "We've had a bit of an insect problem lately. Help me clear out these pests."

After killing all pests

Hedge Wizard Mabai: "Great job! Now let's do a little watering. These plants look thirsty."

After plant watering

Hedge Wizard Mabai: "Excellent! Now let's clean up those leaves. They're everywhere."

After picking up the leaves

Hedge Wizard Mabai: "You're a natural! You want my job? Just one thing: help me move these heavy leaf bags upstairs."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Hedge Wizard Mabai

"Phew, you smell that? That's the scent of an honest day's gardening. Thanks for your help. Now let's focus our attention on these cryptic scriptures, shall we?"
