Obtain a Inv misc bone 10 [Large Femur] from a Skeletal Woodcutter and use it to incapacitate Maloric. Search Maloric for evidence, then report back to Crusader Rhydalla at the Argent Tournament Grounds.


Every day, the Black Knight's squire, Maloric, makes a big show of heading to Crystalsong Forest with his axe over his shoulder. He wants us to believe he's chopping wood, but he never returns with more than a few twigs.

He usually goes towards the ruins southwest of the Mirror of Twilight. He spends a lot of time out there, even for a squire with responsibilities to his knight.

Find a way to distract or incapacitate him and search him. If he's up to something, we'll know it.


Did the squire's behavior yield any clues?


<Crusader Rhydalla examines the bag's contents with a look of disgust on her face.>

It's all here, <name>: the poison that killed Lorien, a collection of knives, torches, and oil. No man has cause to possess these things here and no squire would do so without orders from his knightly master. We've found our murderer, <name>, but who is he working for?


Southwest of the Mirror of Twilight and the Forlorn Woods in south-central Crystalsong Forest is an unnamed set of elven ruins which is marked on the map. Outside of the ruins are a number of Skeletal Woodcutters. Kill them to come up with a Inv misc bone 10 [Large Femur]. Use the femur while behind Combat 15 Maloric <The Black Knight's Squire>, then loot the Inv misc bag felclothbag [Murderer's Toolkit] from him. If you attack Maloric then you won't be able to loot him.

Coord's are [38, 59]
