Start NPC: Karsonak
It pains me to say this, but I must ask a terrible thing of you.
I require the hearts of vinesplicer arachnens. Normally, I seek not to kill, but if there's an external cause to their behavior, it's likely to be carried in the blood.
Be merciful and quick, but please bring me their hearts.
A necessary evil, I assure you. While this research will take some time, it's not likely to require more samples.
The expansion of the Valkyon Federation carries consequences. We carve out hillsides, cut down forests, infuse the world with magic and power. There are always consequences.
The death of the arachnens is balanced by the preservation of other lives. The request is not idle. Bring me the hearts, I entreat you.
Slay the vinesplicer arachnens and collect their hearts.
Return the heart to Karsonak.
