Inventory quest scroll taskwoodsTerror1

The Blaze in the Taskwoods is the first part of the Terror in the Taskwoods equipment quest line. It is a gold-purchasable boss quest and can be purchased from the Quest Shop for 200 gold

Fire Skull Swarm's HP (500) makes this a medium length quest, and its strength multiplier (1) and rage bar (50) make this a trivial(+) quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in about two weeks, but if the rage bar fills (especially repeatedly) it may take considerably longer. This quest is recommended for lower level (less than level 25) characters and smaller parties.


You have never seen the Joyful Reaper so agitated. The ruler of the Flourishing Fields lands her skeleton gryphon mount right in the middle of Productivity Plaza and shouts without dismounting. "Lovely Habiticans, we need your help! Something is starting fires in the Taskwoods, and we still haven't fully recovered from our battle against Burnout. If it's not halted, the flames could engulf all of our wild orchards and berry bushes!"

You quickly volunteer, and hasten to the Taskwoods. As you creep into Habitica’s biggest fruit-bearing forest, you suddenly hear clanking and cracking voices from far ahead, and catch the faint smell of smoke. Soon enough, a horde of cackling, flaming skull-creatures flies by you, biting off branches and setting the treetops on fire!


Defeat the Fire Skull Swarm.
