'The spiders and Orcs corrupted by the infesting fungus seem to change behaviour once turned. One would expect them to act chaotic and attack anything around them, even turn on each other in their confusion. However, once infested they seem to simply change allegiance, as if they immediately begin following new orders. Is something controlling them once they turn?

'Please explore the affected area and see if you can find a leader among newly infected spiders and Orcs.'

Background

The newly infected spiders and Orcs seem to follow a new master once they're turned into their mutated forms. Chaos can be frightening, but when one sees order when they expect chaos, it can be even more terrifying.

Objective 1

  • Find a leader among the infected Orcs
  • Find a leader among the infected spiders

The leader of the infected Orcs should be among his minions to the southeast of Knakk's camp, as well as the Queen lurking among her brood to the east.

You found what is controlling the infected Orcs, and it is defeated
You found what is controlling the infected spiders, and it is defeated

Objective 2

Knakk is camped on the elevated walkway in the northeast corner of Redhorn Lodes.

Knakk: 'It didn't take long for the organizers of this corruption to convert enough creatures for a small army. The fungus seems symbiotic in nature. It somehow allowed the leaders you killed to control them. This infecting fungus is extremely dangerous.
'I hope that's the last time we see those horrors come out of the Foundations of Stone!'
