This quest starts the The Tower of Althalaxx quest chain.
To this end, I sent Balthule Shadowstrike to observe the strange happenings around the Tower of Althalaxx to the northeast.
It is past time that he should have returned. I worry that he has encountered some unforeseen danger in the forest. I would be most appreciative if you would find him and see that he is doing well.
Elissa sent you? Then it is good tidings you bring. I have troubling news to report to her, and had no means with which to deliver it.
Upon completion of this quest you will gain:
To reach the Tower: Get out of Auberdine itself by heading east-ish. Then just follow the path north all the way - you'll go past Bashal'Aran and over Cliffspring River. Stay on the path the whole way, cause there are a lot of enemies around. A short while after the river, you'll come to the tower. It's big, you can't miss it. Plus it's an area in itself so you'll 'discover' it.
Note that the mobs within the tower are significantly higher level than those outside the tower.
