Crane Mastery: Needlebeak
86 (Requires 86)
Acquire the Needlebeak.
So, now that you've got a vibe for how cranes fight, I've got a doozy for you.
Or at least, that's what I'm calling him. Biggest crane I ever saw. And its beak is so sharp it's like a sword.
Northwest of here you'll find the big water fall that kicks off the Dojani River. Needlebeak likes to hang out by the waterfall.
You bring me its beak as a trophy and I will talk you up a good game to Nesingwary.
("Needlebeak: Lord of the Flock.")
I watched that bird stab a tiger through the face. What kind of place is this where birds are the predators for tigers?
Now THAT is a trophy. Looks intimidating. Wait... is this your blood on it?
