Objectives Edit

Collect 8 Magmolias from the Magma Springs[45, 45]
to the north.

Description Edit

We've discovered a new species of flower growing in the Magma Springs to the north. Amazingly, they sustain themselves in pure molten lava!

Please go and retrieve some specimens for me. I'm sure that further study of these plants will shed some light on your little friend here.

Speaking of which, he seems quite eager to go with you. Let's hope he behaves himself.


Fascinating! The more time I spend in the Firelands, the more I see there is an ecosystem at work here.


Thank you, <name>. I will start analyzing these samples at once.

Rewards Edit

You will receive:


  • Gathering the magmolias sometimes will spawn a Combat 15 Lava Burster. When killed, the Burster will drop a Magmolia.
  • Gathering also can award the player with a non-stackable buff:
    • Spell fire sealoffire  [Magmolia Pollen]ω ϖ—Surrounds the caster with a shield that lasts 2 min. and can absorb a fixed amount of Fire damage.
  • The quest name is an obvious reference to the movie Steel Magnolias.
