- "Tis said a mighty cockatrice makes its kip in the depths of Soulflayer Canyon. Should it arise and descend upon the capital, the damage would be immeasurable. We must see that it never awakens."
Before leaving to face the Cockatrice, bring Secret Softeners, Cockatrice Liquor and other defenses against Petrification. In addition to the bird found in Soulflayer Canyon, cockatrices found elsewhere, such as the Chamber of Apprehension, Chamber of Resolution, or Eradication Site will also complete the quest, as will any killed in Bitterblack Isle.
