For this quest it is best to bring some kind of interrupt, because of the Hydra that you will encounter on your path. You will encounter Storm Kin patrols on your way to Yxthoshth. Once Yxthoshth comes in to visual range, the Storm Kin near him will head right for you. Either kill the Storm Kin first then Yxthoshth or go straight for Yxthoshth.
- "As a follower of Melandru, I have a deep love and respect for nature. Indeed, all Rangers, even those who do not view our craft in a spiritual light, rely on the rule of nature to exercise their talents. That is why we have to abhor all that is unnatural and corrupt.
- Ages ago, a power-mad mage named Sybitha unleashed the monstrous storm riders upon this land. One of her first and most powerful roams the Salt Flats to this very day, an ancient and corrupt creature the Centaurs call Yxthoshth. Do not be enticed by the path Sybitha followed. Destroy this foul beast and let us call you an ally and friend of nature."
- Accept: "I will hunt down this creature."
- Decline: "I'm not interested."
- Ask: "These ancient lands have witnessed the misdeeds of many who came here seeking power. All my life, I strove to undo the wickedness they unleashed, but one monster escaped me. Help me, and will I [sic] share with you Melandru's secrets. Go to the Salt Flats and destroy Yxthoshth!"
- "The destruction of Yxthosnth has been long in coming. I tell you, <character name>, I feel as though a great burden has been lifted from my shoulders, and even through the veil of death, I feel that I may once again appreciate the natural beauty of the world around me.
- You have my gratitude, and I will gladly repay you if I can. Should you ever wish to learn what it is to be a Ranger, all you need to do is ask. I have no greater gift to give than that."
