What does this information mean?

To start

Various zones will have groups of 'shadowy' monsters. The monsters initially appear as NPCs, but will become aggro and attack when players get close. They scale to one level below the player's level v, and attack in a group of three. On defeating them, they will drop a treasure chest with a strangely marked hide inside. Examine it to start the quest.
