Dreadhorn is a quest given by Lorekeeper Calendor the Keeper of Tradition who can be found in Heartwood. This quest will make you gain entrance to Twisted Weald. This quest can only be completed once, but you can still enter the Twisted Weald after the quest has been completed.
Defeating Dreadhorn is also an assigned task from Hawkwind for those wanting to gain the Mastery of Chivalry.
Can you comprehend it? I cannot, I confess. The most pristine and perfect Lord of Sosaria has fallen prey to the blight. From the depths of my heart I mourn his corruption; my thoughts are filled with pity for this glorious creature now tainted. And my blood boils with fury at those responsible for the innocent creature's undoing. Will you find Dread Horn, as he is now called, and free him from this misery?
- Slay 1 Dread Horn
After accepting the quest, you need to go to Twisted Weald. You can get there by going through the Spirituality shrine into Ilshenar and head west to the cave opening. Enter the cave and head north to the sparkling gate.
The following six items are required to be gathered to finish the quest:
Now it is time to obtain a Thorny Briar . These spawn randomly on the ground in the desert area to the northeast area of the map. Be careful while traveling this area, is appears you travel slowly throughout the desert terrain! Here is a map showing the six locations you will be traveling.
After obtaining a Gnaw's Fang, head south into the swamp area. The remaining four items will come from this area.
Pick up Blighted Cotton from the ground; it spawns frequently.
Enchanted Mushroom Fairy Circle
After collecting all six quest items, head south to the statue of the faire, and drop the items onto the altar. Three Essence of the Wind will drop into your backpack which can be used to teleport all members of the party to the island. The Dread Horn can be found on this island. It will take a group of five about thirty minutes of casting earth elementals and energy vortexes to kill the Dread Horn.
