Quest Description

Lorekeeper Calendor the Keeper of Tradition

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?
