Detailed WalkthroughEdit

The HatchlingEdit

Speak to the Quester, who says:

"Shhh! Don't let anyone else hear this, (player's guild title). I just got word that a dragon has been spotted! Well, not a full grown dragon, just a little dragonling. There is no quest more heroic for a member of (faction) than to slay a dragon. I know where it is, you go kill it. We can both lay claim to the glory. Is it a bargain?"

or

"Tis time for you to prove that you are truly of (faction), (player's guild title). It is time for you to slay a dragon."

AcceptEdit

The Quester goes on:

"The dragon egg just hatched in (dungeon). I don't know if there are any other dragonlings there or not. I can keep it all a secret for (time limit) days."

DeclineEdit

The Quester answers:

"You tell anyone else about this and I'll see you drummed out of (faction)."

Dragonling RisingEdit

Head to the dungeon where the dragonling was spotted. Find the dragonling and kill it. Depending on your level, there may be more than the one you are looking for. However, when you have found and slain the quest target, you will get a notification:

The dragonling is dead. They'll talk about this in (faction) for years!

RewardEdit

Upon your return, the Quester heralds:

"All hail (player's name), known from this point onward as a dragonslayer! All hail (Quester's name), strong right arm and valued confidant!"
