Important NPCs



  1. Kill the Broodmother
  2. Or help the Broodmother free the captured lagufaeth



  • Speak to Himuihi at Tikawara to unlock the quest, you'll learn that she wants you to free the lagufaeth hatchlings at Tikawara. There are three ways to complete this quest:
  • First Option:
    • Agree to Himuihi in exchange for the tribe calling off its campaign of aggression against the village.
    • In order to free the laguafeth, you'll be required Diplomacy, Inisght (4), an Orlan race, and/or Intimidate (4). You can also tell her to leave the village as it is and if she disagrees with the idea, you can point out to her its nature with a skill check of Survival or Ranger (4). If you pass, she will hand over the Lagufaeth Cage Key, upon releasing them, they will run away and head towards the beach where they'll meet the broodmother, they will also thank you and leave behind the Baubles of the Fin for you to take later on.
  • Second Option:
    • Do not talk to Himuihi yet.
    • You can also avoid fighting the laguafeth at the Hohina Ravine if you want to. You'll have to free the hatchlings first before leaving the village. To unlock the door, you'll need sneak your way to the door to avoid loss of reputation and a skill check of Mechanics (3).
    • Upon freeing the hatchlings, speak to Himuihi, take the quest, and travel to Hohina Ravine. You'll notice that the Lagaufeth in the area will not attack you and one of the hatchlings will even greet you. Head towards the location of the Broodmother, tell her about freeing the hatchlings, and she will agree on leaving the village and she'll reward you with the Baubles of the Fin.
  • Third Option:
    • Accept the quest and head to Hohina Ravine, kill the broodmother, loot the Baubles of the Fin from its body, acquire its head and report back to Himuihi to complete the quest
