A City in Danger

To begin, make your way to Yanille. The quickest way is to use a Ring of Duelling to teleport to Castle Wars, considering you can not teleport straight to Yanille if you have not finished this quest yet. Once in Yanille, make your way to the outer side of the city's northern wall. Follow that wall west to arrive at the watchtower.

You have to make your way up to the third floor. You can't climb the stairs the normal way or the guards will not allow you in. However, on the north side of the tower you should find a trellis you can climb up. Do so and you will be on the second floor of the tower. Climb up the stairs to get to the third floor.

Talk to the Watchtower Wizard. Ask him what the matter is. It seems the watchtower is not working, and the tower protected the city from ogres. He will request your assistance in finding the 4 crystals that powered the watchtower, in order to keep Yanille away from harm. Accept to help him and he will send you off to look for clues in the surrounding area.

Watchtower - Watchtower WizardClimb down to the first floor and grab the lit candle on the center table, as you will need it as you progress further into the quest. Now search all the bushes around the watchtower until you find some fingernails, a damaged dagger, a tattered eyepatch, an old robe, and some unusual armor. Once you have found all those items you can head back to the wizard. You can climb the tower using the stairs this time. After you made it back up, show him the items. By seeing the fingernails, he will be able to determine that the crystals were taken by a servant to the ogres, known as Skavid. Once you finish conversation with him, you may drop the items you found in the bushes, they are not needed anymore.

The First Crystal and the Ogre Relic

Make sure you have 2 ropes, a weapon, and maybe some food. You must now find a way to Gu'tanoth. Talking to the nearby ogre tribes is your best bet. Go back inside Yanille walls and exit them again using the western entrance. From there, travel northwest towards a settlement with several ogres. One of the ogres there is named Og. Speak with him about entrance to the city of ogres. Og will want you to get a gold bar from a chieftain ogre named Toban who can be found to the southeast. He will also give you a key to Toban's chest.

Run just south of Og and there will be an island surrounded by a small amount of water. To the west of the island you will find a long branched tree on your side of the water. Use a rope on the branch and you will swing across, but lose the rope. Talk to Grew, one of the ogres on the island and tell him you are an adventurer. He wants you to fight his enemy, Gorad, and show him one of Gorad's teeth as proof you beat him. Before you leave the island, pick up one of the several Jangerberries scattered around the area. To leave, use the ropeswing to the north.
