In Crystal Cottages, you meet a Seraphim name Gamekeeper Mara. She warns you of the dangerous ice phoenix named Narmul in the vicinity. Apparently Narmul recently attacked another Seraphim. Then Mara gets the idea to ask you to attempt to kill Narmul.
My name is Seraphim Mara, head gamekeeper of this region! One of my most important tasks is to warn travelers of the dangers in the area. Only a few days ago, Seraphim Iseult was found at the entrance of the cave. She was badly injured. What had attacked her? Well, that's the strange thing. She insists that she didn't notice anything... until the rocks started raining down on her head. There is no doubt that it was the work of the ice phoenix Narmul!
An extraordinarily tough best, this Narmul. No one has seen him for years, and those who hunted him never returned or were in as bad a state as Seraphim Iseult. In any case, I must warn you about goign hunting here. Unless... Let's see... hmmm...
Maybe you are strong enough to kill the beast after all. Seraphim Sophia promised a reward to the one who brings here the ice phoenix's head. And I'm sure she wasn't talking about honor and glory. If you want to accept the challenge, I don't want to keep you.
Kill the ice phoenix and bring me its head!
I am confident that you can win the challenge! Yes, you really have a chance. Well then! Go to the ice region and try your luck. If you are successful, bring me the head of that creature.
You will find Narmul to the west, in The Phoenix' Nest. There is a boat portal near Narmul, so make sure and activate the one in Crystal Cottages before you leave to speed your return (you will be coming back, right?).
Narmul is not going to part with his head without a tough fight.
What do you want, mortal?!? I will destroy you! Like all the others who came here hoping to kill me!
After defeating Narmul, collect the head and return to Crystal Cottages.
Once there, you will meet Sister Prustila near the Monotlith. Show her the head, she will be quite impressed and will send you to see Sophia.
Narmul's head? By the Mistress of Light and the Creator! I never thought I would live to see the day! I will examine it right away. A really interesting object. Thank you! And now return to Mara. Sophia will be waiting or you.
You will find Sophia on the other side of the village, near Gamekeeper Mara.
I congratulate you on this success, child! The hunt seems to run in your blood. You succeeded where others had failed. For that reason, I am happy to gie you the reward you earned!
- You have to destroy the Phoenix Statue before you can damage Narmul, starting with the one in the northwest corner, then going clockwise.
