|Walkthrough & Notes|
'I have a fear, <name>. We have been using some of the mushrooms around here for cooking with our meals, but I do not think all of them are safe.
'There are some mushrooms down near the water's edge, growing in that tepid pool of fungus. I believe the Orcs have eaten those, and that is what caused them to become infected.
'To deal with this threat -- at least to slow its spread -- I would ask you to go and destroy those mushrooms. While an Orc is still an enemy, it is an easier enemy to kill than one of these fungus-infested creatures.'
Thrand believes the fungus forms into mushrooms growing on the lake. In his opinion, the Orcs must have eaten the mushrooms, and that is what caused them to become infected.
Mushrooms can be found around the water's edge to the west of the Rotting Cellar.
Thrand thinks destroying the mushrooms will slow the spread of the fungus into the Orc-population.
Thrand is in Hulwul-nefekh in central Water-works.
You have destroyed many mushrooms and should now return to Thrand.
