Slay the Springtail Warren-Mother.
- Springtail Warren-Mother slain
Like any farming community, we have the occasional virmen troubles.
The most powerful Springtail virmen live high up in the cliffs to the north, and only come down when they run out of veggies to nibble on.
Frankly, I've dealt with virmen before. They're nothing but a pest that must be kept in check, and there's no better way to do that than by killing their warren-mother. Easy as that.
("Springtail Warren-Mother: Till and kill, neighbor. Till and kill.")
I've had plenty of experience with virmen in the past. Just show them you're stronger than they are, and they'll back off.
There, that's done with. Now we shift our focus back to farming, for a change.

Fly up to the Springtail Crag and enter the westernmost virmen din. In the back of the den is the Springtail Warren-Mother, pathing a circle in front of some stolen sugar beets, watermlons, and hot peppers.
