This quest starts out at the Greatwood Entrance. There you'll learn that a bandit gang has taken two
people hostage, and that they've decided to split up, with one hostage going to Fisher Creek and the
other going to Greatwood Lake.
You'll (potentially) have to kill a lot of bandits in the quest, since you'll have to kill bandits at
Fisher Creek and Greatwood Lake, and move through the Greatwood Entrance twice, but the "perform
quickly" boast is still easy to achieve. If you've maxed out the "lightning" spell, then you can
just move through the quest normally and still beat it in time. If you're a pure melee character,
then you can simply run through the Greatwood Entrance if you need to, and only fight the bandits at
Fisher Creek and Greatwood Lake.
The first hostage to rescue is at Fisher Creek. You'll find him on the dock with a single bandit.
However, when you approach the pair, several more bandits will run in behind you. The starting bandit
will always target you, but the other bandits will attack whoever is convenient, and so you'll have to
get in their way and get them attacking you. The hostage can only take a couple hits, so if he gets
targeted he'll probably get killed, and you'll have to start over.
You'll find the second hostage at Greatwood Lake, next to the broken bridge. Three bandits will charge
at you when you enter the area, but they should be easy to dispatch. Then when you approach the final
bandit and the hostage, the bandit will say, "Last chance, or the broad gets it." Stop where you are
and hit the bandit with a ranged attack (it doesn't matter if it's a bow attack or a spell attack).
Once hit, the bandit will charge at you, and two other bandits will appear on the path behind you,
and defeating the trio will end the quest. If you had instead
continued moving forward, then the bandit would have killed the hostage in one hit, and you would
have had to start the quest over.
For completing the quest, you'll receive at least 400 renown and 5400 gold, and the second hostage will
give you Treasure Clue 1
"Hero, you're the best!"
