From Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn Wiki
Drest is suffering from extreme duress.
— In-game description
- Slay dung midge swarms. 0/5
- Speak with Drest.
- Drest cannot sleep due to the incessant buzzing of midge swarms. Seek out the noisy vilekin and exterminate them for the distressed hermit.
- The jungle is noticeably quieter now that you have slain several swarms of dung midges. Return to the Severed String and speak with Drest.
- In the midst of thanking you for your assistance, Drest abruptly cries out to an unseen presence and begins pleading for mercy. It seems that slaying a few midge swarms did little to bring him peace.
