Kilag Gorefang and a few Orc Scouts were sent west in search of "previous cargo". They got stuck fighting plants, which Kilag believes they've only angered them. Some orcs can be seen being strangled by vines.
- Had the orcs taken the path north of their camp rather than west, they could have avoided the whole vicious vale and avoid losing what few survivors they already had.
- Completing the quest will phase the area, killing off all the plants and allowing Kilag to move onward to the Wild Overlook.
