Secondary quest Trophy hook 2.png

The Monster of the Lake is one of nine optional trophy quests. It is obtained by killing Nadir, a drowned dead for whom the Royal huntsman is offering a reward. Only one trophy quest, The Beast of the Sewers, is not optional, making a total of ten.


Trophy Nadir.png

Nadir, a drowned dead can be found just east of the mill near the Miller's Gate, but remember that these drowners only come out at night. "The Monster of the Lake" first sends his minions, his drowner buddies, after you so group style is advised. After getting rid of his friends, you can then concentrate on the drowned dead himself. He will not really put up a fight. Equipping the Red ribbon talisman will prevent the other drowners from attacking you, if you need a little extra help. Bring his head to the Royal huntsman and the 200 oren(s) are all yours.



The Monster of the Lake[]

I killed a monster which was feeding at the lakeside. I should extract proof from its body and go to see a lawman, who will pay me for completing this assignment. I should talk to the Royal Huntsman. I should take the trophy to the Royal Huntsman and collect my reward.

I collected my reward for killing the drowned dead. I can probably negotiate a higher reward if I kill more monsters and bring back trophies. I should deliver any trophies I collect off dead monsters to the Royal Huntsman. (200 oren(s) + 1000 XP)
