'Welcome to The Floating Log! I'm sure you'll be wanting a draught of my Toad's Tongue brew, won't you? Say, you're that one what's been helping folks around here, aren't you? Maybe you can help me out some too.

'You see, the Four Farthings Brewing-moot is coming up, and I want to win this year! So I'm going to need some of our famous hops from the fens here, Frog Hops we call 'em.

'Well, anyways, these hops grow around the Frog Marsh just north of here. I'm not sure what it is, but them old toads get mean when you pick the hops. Now I'm not one for warts you know, so I wonder if you'd be so kind as to pick a peck of Frog Hops for me? I'd be much obliged....'


Ponto Hopsbloom, innkeeper of The Floating Log in Frogmorton, is entering the Four Farthings Brewing-moot.


Objective 1

Collect Frog Hops (12)

Frog Hops grow in the marsh north of Frogmorton. The Floating Log Inn is in Frogmorton, south of the Frogmoors.

Ponto Hopsbloom has asked you to pick some Frog Hops for his famous beer.


The Frog Hops grow just north of the Floating Log Inn, on the little islands in the river. They are small white flowers (ground spawns). Gathering them will agro any angry frogs nearby.

You can also complete another quest at the same time called "Many Happy Returns", which starts from Milo Hornblower just outside the Inn. You have to kill 8 frogs and then subdue an elite frog spawn named Lobelia (level 10 elite, 431 morale). If you can reduce Lobelia to half morale, it stops fighting and runs back to its cage.
