Type Description
Side Quest

On a forbidden foray into the forest, Ayrik met with a fearsome beast capable of felling trees and upending the earth with blasts of water. There's only one way of telling whether this fiend really exists, or is merely the product of the boy's overactive imagination...

Lost in the Woods: Walkthrough

Lost in the Woods begins when you speak to Ayrik. He'll tell you about a monster he saw in the woods and wants you to deal with it.

Fast travel to Riversmeet. Head to the left to the marked area and you'll find a wounded hunter. Talk to them, then prepare to fight an archelon.

Once that's done, you'll learn this wasn't the beast you're after; follow the marker to a new location. Inspect the crab corpses. Next, head forward and you'll find the real baddie, a mini boss named Thalaos.

With that taken care of, return to Ayrik in Haven to end the quest.
