Once you obtain the quest and talk to Devona, follow her across the bridge. Once there, kill the Grawl that will start to attack. Watch out for Grawl Shamans who use Infuse Health and Heal Area. Since there are quite a few Grawl here, consider taking a healing spell to heal yourself and Devona, if needed.
Upon spawning, Vatlaaw will immediately begin to cast Favorable Winds, then turn and run away, fleeing through the portal to Regent Valley. Usually you will not be able to reach him before he escapes.
- Town Crier
- "Grim news from Devona in Ashford: A clan of Grawl has swept north from the woods and into Lakeside County. If they are not stopped, the village will surely be destroyed! Someone must fight these creatures and protect the people of Ashford.
- Coordinate your efforts with Devona."
- "The Grawl have been mustering south of the bridge. Let's see if we can turn back their attack. Follow me!"
Upon encountering Vatlaaw Doomtooth:
- Devona: "What is that Charr doing south of the wall?"
- "Aye. I think the village is safe for now. The Grawl are not very intelligent, but even they understand a show of force. What really troubles me is the presence of that Charr Ranger. Could he be inciting the Grawl to attack for some reason? I will warn Rurik of this threat. Thank you for your aid."
- With some preparation it is actually possible kill Vatlaaw. To do so you will usually want high firepower, Imagined Burden to slow him down, and/or the use of minions or gwen to bodyblock him. When blocked, he will not fight back and can be easily killed. You will have to follow a method to stand in his path before he spawns :
