Protect Prospector Remtravel as he searches for the mysterious fossil, then return to Archaeologist Hollee in Auberdine.

  • Escort Prospector Remtravel
  • Suggested Players [2]

Description Edit

So then, Hollee... oh that's right, you are not Hollee. Where's Hollee? Bah, that's beside the point. We must find that stone brush... I mean the mysterious fossil! We must find that fossil. The Explorers' League in Darnassus will want some indication as to what I've been doing. Let me know when you are ready and we will hunt down that brush.... I mean fossil! We shall find something in writing to satisfy the League. So are you ready yet?

Completion Edit

Thank the stars Prospector Remtravel is safe! I told you he was absent minded. I can't believe he insisted on staying there with all of those horrible creatures lurking about.

Notes: Escorting the professor Edit

The professor will lead you through the entirety of the dig before he recalls just where the fossil is.

Prospector Remtravel says: Ok, <name>, let's go find where I left that mysterious fossil. Follow me!
The prospector leads the way down into the dig. At the scaffolding opposite the path east, he pauses again.
Prospector Remtravel says: Now where did I put that mysterious fossil? Ah, maybe up there...
The prospector climbs up the scaffolding. Meanwhile, a pair of Troggs attack.
Prospector Remtravel says: Hrm, nothing up here.
The prospector climbs down, and goes over to the tent area.
Prospector Remtravel says: No mysterious fossil here... Ah, but my copy of Green Hills of Stranglethorn. What a good book!
Prospector Remtravel says: I bet you I left it in the tent!
The prospector goes to the tent. Another pair of troggs attack.
Prospector Remtravel says: Oh wait, that's Hollee's tent... and it's empty.
The prospector heads east, deeper into the dig. He heads around the corner to the deepest section of the dig.
Prospector Remtravel says: Interesting... I hadn't noticed this earlier...
Prospecor Remtravel inspects the ancient, mossy stone.
Prospector Remtravel says: Oh wait! I'm supposed to be looking for that mysterious fossil!
The professor walks to the south side of the dig. A final trio of troggs ambush the two of you.
Prospector Remtravel says: Nope. didn't leave the fossil back here!
The professor leads you back to where you first found him.
Prospector Remtravel says: Ah. I remember now! I gave the mysterious fossil to Hollee! Check with her.
Prospector Remtravel goes back to work, oblivious to everything around him.
