Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

You can find a letter addressed to you from Walks-Softly.

[PlayerName],
"I must once again ask you for your help and advice. I have a solution to the situation with my old friend, but it's hard to explain. I'd prefer to show you in person instead of writing the details here."
<Continue reading.>
"Meet me near the docks. You can find me in one of the warehouses overlooking the waterfront. I'll see you there and explain everything.
—Walks-Softly"
I should meet Walks-Softly by the docks.

missing walkthrough between these two points

Inside the Shark's Teeth Grotto Walks-Softly is located on a bridge over the river; to reach him, fight your way down the right passage until it opens up to the sky, where a skyshard can be seen to the left, but instead go to the right to the end of the bridge, then cross the bridge. Note that the quest pointer will be confusing at best as you work your way through the regions of the grotto until you reach the right level.
