  • You will be using the ingredients you gather from this quest in the next quest.
  • Also, consider bringing at least 5 Smoldering Candles with you when you work on this quest so you can do the next step of this questline immediately after turning this one in.
  • It is not necessary to speak to Wyneta, James and Neela for quest updates. Just gather the required ingredients.
  • It is not necessary to harvest these in order, as Zek, Greater Faydark and Kylong Plains all have either Druid Rings and/or Wizard Spires, you'll be close to a portal that will quickly get you back to the Moors.
