The Root of the Problem[edit]

He is one of the possible questgivers for this quest, found crouching among the debris near the shore. Nearing him, he'll cry out: "I can't believe this is happening!" Talking to him, he'll say:

"This is horrible. The spirit wasn't any help. The Great Tree can't last much longer against the vapor!"
What are you talking about?
"I came here from Windcatcher Plantation to see if the storm caused any damage. Then I noticed the Great Tree, covered in some sort of fetid vapor!
I rushed back and told Spinner Benieth. She summoned a spirit to help, but I don't think it worked."
Spirit? What kind of spirit?
"Some sort of nature spirit. It entered the cave where the Great Tree's roots emerge, but something's wrong.
I heard horrible noises inside the cave. The spirit cried out, as if in pain. The Great Tree will die if the spirit can't do its work!"
I'll enter the cave and help the spirit.

After agreeing to help, you can ask Edheldor further questions.

"I want to heal the Great Tree, but I'm just a farmer. If something is keeping that spirit from mending the roots, there's nothing I could do to help."
How can I help the spirit?
"The spirit is old and powerful. It seeks to move from root to root, aiding the Great Tree as it's able.
But it's a healing spirit, of singular purpose. It doesn't know how to defend itself."
Is the spirit in danger?
"I'm uncertain. If so, the spirit must be protected from harm while it heals the Great Tree's roots. It knows what it must do."
What's so important about the Great Tree?
"The Great Tree shields Windcatcher Plantation from the winter winds and keeps our settlement shaded from the heat of the summer. Its story entwines with ours."
But how is it different from any other tree?
"When the wind goddess Khenarthi first traveled across the heavens, legends say she grew tired and rested in the branches of a small sapling before resuming her journey.
That sapling became the Great Tree, and gave Windcatcher Plantation its name."

After dealing with the Kwama beneath the tree, Edheldor can be found outside the cave alongside Spinner Benieth and Naarwe. If you talk to him before the Spinner he will say:

"Look, the vapor is clearing up! I don't know what you did, but it worked!
I'll let you tell Spinner Benieth the good news."

Once the quest is completed he will instead say:

"I don't know how I feel about these strange bugs. But if Spinner Benieth doesn't mind, who am I to disagree?"
