The Root of the Problem
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."
- "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?"
