Ah, jussst the ssstrider I wanted to sssee. We have sssoldiers out on a joint training exercise, and they've sssent a requessst for aid.


As matters ssstand, you'll be needing a griffin to render the necessary assistance. Giff will explain the sssituation.
Quest Accepted

Here to lend a hand, are you, lad? I don't know what Eshana's told you, but it seems our fighters are being swarmed by tiny flying vilekin. Actual swarms of them.


I don't know what our folk did to annoy them, but once those pests get riled up, there's no shooing them away.


My plan is for you to fly a griffin over to Virdjala, and have it disperse those biting buggers with a good buffet from its wings.


Once you're done, you can hop off wherever you please─the griffin's trained to return to me after the rider dismounts. Might be easiest if you report directly to Eshana, of course.

A swarm of vilekin is attacking this soldier. Speak with Giff in Castellum Velodyna and borrow a griffin for its Buffet ability.
Oof! Why did you─ Oh, they're gone! Thank Rhalgr!
...And thank you. If you hadn't come, my comrade here would have been bitten and stung to death.
Aye, not exactly the kind of training I signed up for. We'd best find a new place to spar.

Phew... Thank you so much. I thought those little bastards would eat me alive...
Those pesssts ignored me and flew ssstraight at him. Curious. We'll head back for now, and have this ssstrider's wounds ssseen to.
Lost your griffin, did you? Here, try to stay in the saddle this time.
I've ssslapped and ssswiped a hundred times but they won't leave him be!
Hells-spawned fiends! There's a dozen more for every one I swat!

Go on! Shoo! ...Ugh, it'sss hopeless!
Godsdamn these winged demons! Get away from me!

Was Giff's plan a sssuccess?


That is a relief. Being blasssted by a griffin's wings was likely unpleasant, but better that than sssuffer a ssslow death from a ssswarm.


I am told by my sssisters that it was only those of certain ssstock who were targeted by the vilekin─they've a tassste for Highlander blood, it would ssseem. It is a wonder that you did not fall victim to the sssame fate.

Ssspeaking of which, Giff is apparently terrified of those insssects. He mussst have been glad indeed that you arrived to perform the ressscue in his ssstead...
Quest Completed
You've blown away those little buggers then, have you? Head over to Eshana and tell her the good news.
