Mission Debriefing[edit]

Hell hath no fury like an apathetic tree scorned.


Aubrey the Teenage Treant needs you to go deal with a group of Orcs that have been harassing the forest and cutting down trees. She will give you a Sapling to plant in the middle of their camp. You need to head to the Orc Village and plant the Sapling where shown.

Once the Sapling is planted you need to protect it while it grows as a Treant Sapling. When it matures into a Treant, Mosstache then you need to protect it while it smashes up the camp.


Accept the quest:

Aubrey: "Hey man. The forest needs your help. Or whatever. Some nearby orcs chopped down a bunch of trees for a lumber yard. Plant this sapling in the middle of their camp, alright?"

Take the Sapling:

Aubrey: "Once you plant that sapling. protect it until it can gropw into its full size. And then it'll (yawn) wreak its vengeance on the orcs for defying mother nature."

As you plant the Sapling:

Aubrey: "You're near the camp. Just plant that sapling and show them nature's true power and blah blahblah trees. Now protect the sapling until it can grow to its full size. I'm gonna take a nap."

If the Sapling loses 1/4 of its health:

Aubrey: "Looks like the sapling's getting hurt. FYI."

Aubrey: "They're beatin' up the sapling. Kay."

When the Treant is nearly grown:

Aubrey: "You're almost done guard that stupid thing."

When it finishes growing:

Aubrey: "Hey, the sapling's all grown up. Neato. Now help it take out the rest of the camp."

After destroying the last hut:

Aubrey: "Hey, you did it. Now you can truly (singing half-heartedly) 'paint with the wind's colorrrs.' ... They make us sing that. Like once a week. Come back whenev."

Mission Turn in: Aubrey: "Trees are so stupid."
