You volunteered to destroy the Netherese convoys bearing these weapons as they make their way through Tumblerock Pass. To reach the pass, you must head to the Western edge of the foothills of the Storm Horns. The Harper scout Kyra Armond waits for you there.

Tips and Misc

  • The basic objectives are very simple: stop several waves of enemies carrying supplies who are trying to get past you. The carriers will not attack, but there are escorts who will.
  • All of these spawn from a cave mouth at the south-western end of the trail on the valley floor (dotted line on the map).
  • The "convoys" starts after a visible 5-minute countdown, but that timer doesn't start until after you speak to the Harper at the quest entrance, Kyra Armond.
  • The Supply Carriers/convoys come in waves of:
  • First: Orcs, walking at normal speed
  • Then: Gnolls, walking fast
  • Last: Hill Giants, walking slowly
  • All are guarded by a variety of melee, ranged and caster enemies.
  • If you miss any carrier from the group that forms a convoy and they reach the camp at the northern end, you will get extra waves of Hill Giants to complete the quest. You will just miss the optional and an extra chest.
  • (Optional) You can get some help from some Harpies, who have their nests in the west side of the map. But you have to convince them.
  • There are two paths to the harpies' next. The first is from the upper path, a natural stone bridge leading north (visible on map) to the left just after you leave the quest entrance area. The second is a steep slope up from the valley floor, where the trail splits around a tree just east of that same stone bridge.
  • Once there, you have 3 choices: Perform, Diplomacy, or fight. If you fail at either of the first two, you have to fight them all, and if you succeed, you have to fight to "as a test of strength", so you can just choose to attack.
  • (Optional) You can get some help from a Harper Trap-maker, who has his camp in the south-east side. He can supply you with bunches of 6 large net-traps. If you have skill in (Trapmaking?) he will supply you with twice as many.
  • (Optional) There are boulders in the high grounds that can be pushed down to smash anything in the road (requires a Strength value of  ♥20-21Hard ♠23-24Elite ♦?-36Epic Normal). It takes some timing to not miss, but anything hit by the rock will be instantly slain.
  • After killing the last Hill Giants, Grablandurr (the boss) will spawn. You will get an announcement to this effect - the camp is at the northern end of the valley trail.
  • If you've done the Harpie optional, you can take this time to get Ransack (barrels are by the Druid) and perform the Archers optional. By the time you've finished those, Grablandurr will be close to finished by the Harpies.
  • After looting the chest in that camp, remember to go back to the start for the actual end chest(s). Dimension Door is perfect for this, or take the Harpy slope up, near the bridge.
