As I mentioned earlier, I attempted to scout the temple on my own from the air. Well, I wasn't exactly alone.
I traveled to the renowned gryphon aviary at Aerie Peak in The Hinterlands. There I enlisted the aid of one of their finest pilots. The pilot fell off his mount, down into the swamp...
In my old age the poor fellow's name eludes me. The master of the aviary would remember, no doubt.
Journey there and seek out Falstad Wildhammer.
We need to find out what happened to that pilot.
What do you want, laddy? Can't you see I've got problems to take care of here? Who has time to stand around yapping with some <race> chatterbox?
There are trolls coming out of the woodwork! Make it snappy.
To get to the Hinterlands, start at the Wetlands and cross Thandol's Span in the Arathi Highlands. Follow the road west and pass through Thoridan's Wall in the Hillsbrad Foothills. Durnholde Keep will be on the right hand side of the road. North of the keep is a path through the hills into the Hinterlands. There will probably be a pair of gryphons patrolling the entrance. Follow the path until it turns into a road. The road leads to Aerie Peak. Falstad can be found below the gryphon master's platform.
