Someone or something has stirred inside the tiniest mouth of the tiniest cave in the Emerald Graves. Now it demands crystal grace.
There is a small rock formation east of Direstone Camp in the Emerald Graves (see gallery). The quest is obtained by jumping on top of the rocks approximately 50 times (sometimes more, sometimes less), until a voice is heard.
After the first time you hear the voice, if you back away from the cave and then run up to it again it will say something else. Doing this and jumping on the cave while the voice is talking may help activate the quest. Once the voice says, "Need more! More, have to be ready." the quest will appear in the Journal.

at the cave and the voice will say:
The stairs, the stairs that go down, way down, way way down. I'll be there, you'll be there.
As soon as the crystal grace is placed on the cave the quest will complete.
However, the strange raving is in fact a clue to a hidden area in Emprise du Lion—a secret entrance to a staircase found at the end of a tunnel beneath Suledin Keep. Approach the tunnel from the south side of the keep and the entrance is found to the left of the veilfire torch, at the end of the tunnel, behind an illusionary section of rock (see image/video in gallery).
At the bottom of the staircase is a single chest. Loot the chest to complete the hidden part of the quest.
Completing the quest (Emerald Graves) yields:
- 242 XP
- 80 Influence
The secret chest always contains:
- Gold (~250)
"So I said to the fellow, 'You want a what?' And it turns out I heard him right the first time. A helmet of flowers, he said, with a vein of lyrium running through it to keep them flowers alive. I thought for sure this had to be some elven thing, something for frolicking in the woods, but no. It's for a duel, he said. Bloody Orlesians. Dwarven pride demanded I make the damned thing effective, at least."
