This quest becomes available once you’ve constructed Tarben’s bakery in Ravensthorpe. You can choose to do the quest immediately after construction, or you can leave it for later. The quest should take you no more than 10 minutes to complete and you will earn a considerable amount of XP from it, so we recommend that you complete it immediately.
Once you accept the quest, you’ll need to travel with Tarben to the market at Wayfarer’s Wharf, roughly 600 metres southeast of Ravensthorpe. Use the small boat at the docks to row there. Tarben and Eivor will engage in some dialogue along the way.
When you reach the docks of the market at Wayfarer’s Wharf, a brief cutscene will play during which the merchant seems somewhat familiar with Tarben, and more than a little uneased by his presence. After the scene, get back in the boat and row to Ravensthorpe. When you arrive at the docks, the quest will complete.
Note: If you want to learn a little more about Tarben’s backstory, be sure to read the two letters that can be found within the bakery at Ravensthorpe. Both should give you an indication of why the merchant was surprised to see Tarben.
