Quest-Related EventsEdit

When you first encounter him, the door to the inside of the arena will be locked. You must speak to Grunt.

"You not allowed in. Go 'way."
Why not?
"Too crowded. Only gots room for one group. Too many groups out here. You beat them, maybe you go in."
Simple enough.

You will then have to have to kill every other gladiator in the courtyard. Once you've done so, you can talk to him again.

"You tough. Maybe tough enough for Crucible. Maybe not."
How can I prove I'm tough enough?
"Maybe you fight me!"
If you insist.

He will then enter combat and shout:

Grunt the Clever: "I smash you to bits!"
