Gorrik

The perfect spot!


I've found an excellent site for our skyscale hatchery in Jahai Bluffs. The heavy lifting has all been managed—the equipment is deployed, and the eggs are safe—but there's still more to do. Come to Sun's Refuge, and I'll give you a more thorough briefing.
This content requires all the episodes of Living World Season 4.

Approaching Gorrik in Sun's refuge
Gorrik: And you're certain of this?
Taimi: Heck no! But i'm pretty sure it's the right track. Good luck!
Talking to Gorrik
Gorrik: Ah, perfect. Taimi and I have put our heads together to determine how to hatch these eggs.

That means what, exactly?
There's nothing exact about it. Skyscales are unprecedented, their incubation process unknowable. We believe it would be prudent to expose the eggs to a variety of latent magic energies.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
But we won't know for sure without a test. To do that, you'll need to select an egg and expose it to several types of magic throughout the world.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
Once we confirm the theory, we can automate the process for the other eggs. I'll be working on the means to do so. Go on—pick an egg and get moving!
