 Location   Gylia Plains   X   -35  Y   68  Z   -5413  Wynncraft Map 


  • Cikal: Oh, ho ho. What is this? A Human? What brings you to Gylia Watch?
  • Cikal: Of course you know who we are! The Gylia Watch was founded over 200 years ago in wake of the Villager victory in the war.
  • Cikal: The war, m'boy! It's only the most famous war in Gavel! Well.. Maybe except for what happened in Molten Heights.
  • Cikal: But that's by the by. The Gerten War was a bloody, long war brought on by starvation.
  • Cikal: The Gerts are a brutish race. They are motivated only by hunger. They hunt whatever they can find.
  • Cikal: Our victory over those orange skinned brutes brought about the creation of the Gylia Watch.
  • Cikal: Where we now observe them day and night! Well, maybe not on poker night.
  • Cikal: The Gerts have since been subdued, left in their primary territory. They are so full of gluttony they say they are starving!
  • Cikal: We taught them how to farm animals now, so hunting is not necessary for them. Although it took years to do. They eat EVERYTHING.
  • Cikal: The Gerts… Stupid as they are seem to be behind some attacks recently.. But we haven't seen them move a bit!
  • Cikal: Still, can't hurt to check it out. I must stay here, if you want a job, go down to the two neighbouring farms and see what you can find out about the attack. Only come back to me if you find out how the Gert's are getting out of their camp.

Stage 2[]

» Search around the farms for clues.

 Location   Anof   X   -92  Y   34  Z   -5455  Wynncraft Map 


  • Anof: Another one! That's the third one this week. My poor livestock.
  • Anof: I'll lose my entire herd if this continues! What are the Gylia Watch doing up in that tower? Drinking Thanos brew all day?
  • Anof: Who are you? The Gylia watch are so lazy they are sending Humans now?!
  • Anof: What has this province become? Oh, look at this too, blood everywhere! That Gert clearly dragged the poor thing away…

 Location   Jitak   X   -185  Y   32  Z   -5473  Wynncraft Map 
  • Jitak: If you are looking for a suit or something, I can't help you. Now is a very bad time.
  • Jitak: Oh, you're here on behalf of the Watch? Ha, even sending Humans to do their work is not beneath them.
  • Jitak: All they do is sit up in that tower playing drinking games and act like they own this region!
  • Jitak: I reported the fact there is clearly a Gert camp right in front of my house and they just ignored me! Now look, my sheep are all gone!
  • Jitak: I even bought a golem to watch over! Got it for a good price because of some incident down at the Olux factory.
  • Jitak: You have to sort this out! Go to the Gert camp west of here and find out how they are doing all of this!
  • Jitak: Any information on how the Gerts are getting past the tower is invaluable!

Stage 7[]

» Tell farmer Jitak about the tunnel.


  • Jitak: Good to see you again. Gerts, for all their stupidity are incredibly powerful, you clearly know what you are doing.
  • Jitak: So, what did you find?
  • Jitak: A what? A tunnel?! How is this possible? I didn't think Gerts even knew there was an underground!
  • Jitak: Well if that's true, they must be tunnelling right under the Watch's nose! How did you guys not know about this?!
  • Jitak: Leave it up to the Watch to get outsmarted by a Gert. Right, well if this is true, you need to find the main tunnel.
  • Jitak: It won't be easy, but you could avoid fighting them all together with a simple disguise. If you get me [6 Gert Skin] I can make you a mask.
  • Jitak: It's the only thing I can do for helping me out. You can use it to get into the main Gert camp.
  • Jitak: You can get Gert skin from the Gerts at the camp west of here.

Stage 8[]

» Bring Jitak 6 Gert Skin.


  • Jitak: That didn't take you long. Here, let me make the mask.
  • Jitak:
  • Jitak: There. Try not to throw up because of the smell. What? Did you think wearing old Gert skin would smell like roses?
  • Jitak: Remember to play your part. Don't eat any fruit or vegetables in front of them. They only eat raw meat.
  • Jitak: Oh, and be a little more stupid. Gerts can't even count to 20. There is another camp just on the other side of the watch tower.
  • Jitak: I can't believe they don't know about it. It's like they aren't even looking in the right direction! Now off you go, the last thing we need is another Gert war.

  • Comor: But now I can’t see or hear him. I’m worried that something bad has happened to him.
  • Comor: He said that he managed to steal a key from a Gert that kept smelling him. We were just waiting for a good opportunity.
  • Comor: Would you go and check his cell out? I would do it myself, but if you haven’t noticed, I cannot get out of my cell.

  • Cikal: How could they possibly have done that literally right under our noses! Who could have thought the Gerts were so smart! That is very uncommon.
