The Absent Minded Prospector

This quest was marked obsolete by Blizzard and cannot be obtained or completed.
Archaeologist Flagongut in Menethil Harbor wants you to bring him the Stone of Relu and Flagongut's Fossil.
Stone of Relu
Flagongut's Fossil


Prospector Whelgar now holds the original fossil at his site in the Wetlands. When I discovered the Stone of Relu, I believed it to be the key to unlocking the mystery of the fossil.

While I traveled on the road to meet Whelgar, I was attacked by raptors and the relic was lost. I don't know which one of the mottled beasts swallowed the relic but if you can retrieve it, I can unleash the power of these artifacts.

Bring me both the Stone of Relu, and the original fossil he holds.
