Tips and Misc

  • This is a standalone side-quest, not part of the main storyline. The questgiver is by the entrance.
  • This is an extremely short quest. Dame Alonsa will fight alongside you, but you don't need to worry about defending her or keeping her alive; she's well capable of taking care of herself.
  • The Windmill's primary attack involves a squat, crushing anything beneath it. This is telegraphed by a white circle on the ground beneath it, giving you plenty of time to get out from under.
  • You can damage neither the Windmill nor the Topiary Lions sporting a gemstone. However, the Windmill damages everything it sits on...
  • After defeating the Windmill (which ends the quest), you can earn some bonus XP by heading further down the path. A secret, locked door hides the creator of the windmill.
    • You can head down the path before defeating the windmill; however, the doors are unsearchable.
  • Topiary Lions with gemstones can be body-blocked from moving with a bit of wiggling. Simply stand in front of them.
  • This quest can be solo farmed on Elite Reaper difficulty by characters with decent Sneak skill. Windmill will follow a stealthed character (hit it once to aggro it in the beginning just to make sure), and the Dame Alonsa NPC will tank all spawns including reapers. Stay away from reapers just in case, and simply lead the windmill around to the Topiary Lions with the gemstones while stealthed.

Bonus XP

  • Aggression bonus: 21 or more monsters killed +10% Bonus.( ♣73 ♦130 ♥138 ♠146 )
  • Onslaught bonus: 28 or more monsters killed +15% Bonus.( ♣110 ♦195 ♥207 ♠219 )
  • Conquest bonus: 35 or more monsters killed +25% Bonus.( ♣183 ♦325 ♥345 ♠365 )

  • Chests: Two
    • One for defeating the Windmill; may contain named loot
    • One for defeating the Gnome Wizard
  • Collectables: 4-7
    • Two Adventurer's Packs in the camp west of where you meet Dame Alonsa (Note: May not always appear)
    • Fungus on the path up the hill (Note: May not always appear)
    • Two Fungi in the field past/below the Windmill
    • Fungus in the Gnome Wizard's room
