Objectives Edit

Get the Keg of Gunpowder from Budd's Dig[55.2, 38.7]

Description Edit

Mack's still out of it, and I fear we may lose him if I can't get this fire started. With the wood being soaked, we'll need something special to get it going.

There's an abandoned camp nearby with a barrel of explosives in it. There's no way I can recover it on my own.

Would you mind hauling it back for us? For Mack?

Progress Edit

Did you get the explosives from the camp, <class>?

Completion Edit


Let's see if this does the trick....

Stand back, <name>!

You will receive:

  • 7Gold 80Silver

Notes Edit

Exit the cave and turn left. Budd's Dig is 30 yards away. At the dig, the Keg of Gunpowder is situated next to the tent[55.5, 38.8]

On complete:

Captain Samir says: Woohooo!
Samir throws the keg on the pile of wood, lighting it!

Mack and Adarrah offer quests, Ophidophobia and Nerve Tonic, respectively, upon completion of this quest. Additionally Budd shows up outside the cave at his camp with Oh, the Insanity!
