Bestowal dialogue

'This is getting absurd. Tanathron over there, that weaver -- yes, the one glaring my way -- simply will not give me fibres for the linen I need for the special boots.

'My supplies are running low, and he is a key supplier, but he refuses to help me! It is because his own supply of flax is running low, and he hoards his ingredients so that his stock never depletes.

'I am afraid I've gone and made him angry with my demands. Perhaps you can reason with him; please try, <name>.'


The shoe-maker of Duillond is having some trouble wresting supplies for linens from the hoarding weaver.

NOTE: This quest will be removed from your quest log when the current festival ends.

Objective 1

Tanathron is in Duillond, near the ovens and the Boot-maker.

You should speak with Tanathron about procuring flax fibre for linen shrew-stomping boots.

Deluraw: 'He is an absurd Elf if I've ever met one, that Tanathron. So greedy with his ingredients! See how he glares at me?'
Tanathron: 'What? So I like having a balanced supply of ingredient and product. What of it? If I have no ingredients, tomorrow I shall have no product. I do not think it is unreasonable for me to demand ingredients if I am going to generously give of my finite supply.
'If you want your own ingredients for you own endeavours, you will have to collect ingredients for me first. Flax plants grow along the road to Celondim. You'll be able to see the place blue flowers amongst the grasses.'

Objective 2

Flax grows in the grasses along the road to Celondim that leads south from Duillong.

You should collect stalks of flax so that Tanathron's precarious supply can remain perfectly balanced.

Objective 3

  • Bring the flax plants to Tanathron and collect the fibres

Tanathron, the weaver, is in Duillond near the ovens.

You should bring the flax plants to Tanathron to refurbish his dwindling supply.

Tanathron: 'Good. Now we can proceed with our arrangement. At least someone around here can be resonable, AHEM!
'Here are some flax fibres.'

Objective 4

Deluraw stands near the ovens in Duillond.

You should bring the desired flax fibres to Deluraw, for they are apparently very difficult to come by.

Deluraw: 'Splendid <name>! Your patience and politeness did wonders here, I see.
'Tanathron is a stubborn fool who has no business in this trade, but it is what it is, and I should learn to make due.
'Unfortunately, I have a sad feeling that I will go through the same thing all over again tomorrow, when my supplies run low again.'
