  1. At night, after 8pm go to McQuibble's Farmhouse ( -1835, 22, -197 ) /waypoint -1835, 22, -197 Eq2map you will see several burning scarecrows surrounded by four animated scarecrows jump up as the scarecrows leave to get the automatic update.
  2. Return to speak with Professor Heribert.
    • NOTE: During the following 2 steps, every time you approach the point on the road by the fence just Northwest of the farmhouse ( -1759, -25, -281 ) /waypoint -1759, -25, -281 you will be attacked by a group of four crazed scarecrows. You will see Shanty's corpse on the ground where they spawned. You cannot examine the corpse and it will vanish the moment you kill the scarecrows.
  3. Speak to Shanty Gaggleshorn ( -2068, 25, -124 ) /waypoint -2068, 25, -124 Eq2map. He only appears when you get close to his spawning point, which is to the East of the farm, and on top the South end of the butte ontop of the rock.

Approaching the corpse spawns 4 crazed scarecrows of your level, one v heroic and three vv heroics. Killing them updates the quest.

You may now safely destroy a gleaming medallion.
