As some of you might have done this, mine bugged up for some reason. I killed 10 apes, got the mats. I put the mats on the rock, get the 2 snakes on me.. But I couldn't kill em, so I had to run. So the timer showed 5 mins, thought it was untill respawn, but then the quest expired, and I cannot seem to find the quest anymore in egophythian mountains..
Yeah thats the thing, I don't have a clue where its from. Apart from that, dunno if the npc won't give it again or something, but thats 20 k xp I lost! That I need for leveling, due to lack of quests.
Its from the female npc standing just in front of the road leading up to the hunting lodge. She is the one who also had you killing 4 of each of the snaketypes. Abandon what remains of your quest. I asume you have it still. If not, check your completed log for the mountains, and if its there, youre fecked. if its not, then try to go speak to the npc, make sure you have abandoned it before talking to her.
yeh when i did this i managed to kill the 1st one but 2nd one killed me, so i quickly ran back with 2mins on timer left and saw someone else had tagged and killed it and got quest failed when timer ran out.
