Make the trek into Mamnoon Lagoon from either Druid's Overlook or The Wilds. Once there, you will find groups of Jungle Skale and patrols of 5 Wind Riders circling the lagoon that can be quite challenging for mid-level characters; however, it is possible to avoid the Wind Rider patrols.
Put the message in the log (simply click on the Hollow Log, it's an interactive object) and circle the lake to get to the next zone, Silverwood. From there head west and talk to Alari Doubleblade. Alternatively, if you have been to either Quarrel Falls or Bloodstone Fen, you can map travel and start from there.
When you will have noticed Alari, the Wind Riders nearby may start to attack her. Try to reach her quickly and defeat the foes, otherwise she may be killed and you will need to re-enter the zone.
Note: Although Alari is close to the Bloodstone Fen entrance to Silverwood, the path to her is actually a lot shorter from the Quarrel Falls entrance which you'll pass right by if you use the Bloodstone Fen entrance. Save yourself some time and take the right-hand fork immediately outside Quarrel Falls.
- Envoy Ero
- "Are you with the Shining Blade? I come in peace bearing a message for them. I am supposed to have dropped the message in a hollow log located in someplace called Mamnoon Lagoon, but quite frankly, this forest makes me nervous. If you would be so good as to deliver the message for me, I'm certain your friends in the Shining Blade would be most appreciative. After you drop off the message, seek out Alari Doubleblade in Silverwood and tell her that the message has been delivered.
- Will you do this for me?"
- Alari Doubleblade
- "Ero gave the message to you to deliver? I'd kill that cowardly son [sic] of a skale if he [sic] wasn't so useful. I know it might look bad that I'm speaking to the White Mantle, but I have been blackmailing Ero for information on their troop movements. Tell nobody about this arrangement; if it gets back to the wrong people, our information will literally be cut off at the source."
- This quest may confuse players playing through the Prophecies storyline for the first time, because when you get to Druid's Overlook in the storyline, you are chasing the Shining Blade to save the Chosen they've kidnapped. Events in The Wilds and Bloodstone Fen explain what happens prior to this quest.
- Alari further compounds the confusion by giving you The Price of Steel, which sends you to Quarrel Falls and can cause you to skip those missions and break the storyline.
- Alari refers to Envoy Ero as a male while the NPC is shown as a female.
