Archmage Berinand in the Transitus Shield wants you to collect 3 Glacial Splinters and 3 Magic-Bound Splinters from the Ancients in Coldarra.
It's become clear that the instability in the region has had an effect on its indigenous creatures.
I've taken a particular interest in the Glacial Ancients and their recent adaptations. I suspect that their transformation into these 'Magic-bound' Ancients may hold clues to our predicament here.
For my studies, I'll need samples from both. Do hurry....
Have you collected the samples I requested?
Yes, yes. These shall do nicely.
Thank you, <race>.
