Objectives Edit

Obtain 6 small piles of Houndbone Ash.

Description Edit

On the Firelands' largest island, our troops have been having trouble against Shannox, the flamewaker hunter. Not only does he have impeccable aim, but he keeps trained hounds that give our troops no end of trouble.

Tholo, in all his wisdom, thinks it would be a good idea to study the biology of these hounds. I, of course, agree with Tholo.

You will find several hounds in the Molten Flow, beneath the Furnace. We will need their ashes to study.


Any information we can get will be instrumental in helping our men defeat Shannox.


This ash may seem indistinguishable from any other type of ash you find on this forsaken island, but trust me... you have found the right stuff.

We will have it analyzed immediately.

Return again soon. While I do enjoy spending time with Anren, we also appreciate your company, <name>.
