After you have found the acorns for the Dryads in Irenicus' Dungeon, they ask you to bring the Acorns to the fairy queen in the Windspear Hills.

Note: This quest ties in with the Journey to the Windspear Hills quest, so there is a number of steps that aren't really connected with freeing the Dryads; however you can't avoid them.

  1. After you escape Irenicus' Dungeon, go to the Slums District and speak to Gaelan Bayle to set off Chapter 2. If you are a Paladin, Gaelan suggests that you seek out Lord Jierdan Firkraag in the Copper Coronet. If you're not a Paladin, do it anyway:

  2. Go to the Copper Coronet and find Lord Jierdan at 3. Accept his quest to Journey to the Windspear Hills. This is necessary to make the Windspear Hills available on your world map.

  3. Go to the City Gate district in Athkatla and leave through the city gate at 2. On the world map, click the Windspear Hills area at the far right side of the map.

  4. When you arrive in the Windspear Hills, you are ambushed by a group of monsters. You have no choice, so kill them.

  5. When you have killed the monsters, the illusion is lifted and the monsters turn out to be knights. Garren Windspear appears on the scene and warns you that you will be seen as killers of knights and persecuted by knights of the Order of the Most Radiant Heart if you travel outside the Windspear Hills. Garren offers you to rest in his cabin while he goes to speak with the order.

  6. Your party finds itself outside Garren's Cabin at 2 on the Windspear Hills map.

  7. Go inside and speak to Garren Windspear and his child. The party rests.

  8. You wake up to find yourself under attack from bandits who abduct Garren's child. When you have killed the remaining bandits, Garren returns and asks you to free his child. By all means accept.

  9. Which means you have to do the Windspear Hills dungeon, but that is part of the Journey to the Windspear Hills quest. Leave Garren's cabin.

  10. Before proceeding with the main Windspear Hills quest, go to 4 on the Windspear Hills map where you will find the Fairy Queen, Vaelasa.

  11. Give her the Acorns you brought all the way from Irenicus' Dungeon to complete the quest. Vaelasa summons the Dryads, and the party receives 9,750 XP for completing the quest.
