The Hungry River Side Quest
Recommended Level: 14
Region: Kanopos Nome
- Bring the dead back to the cart
- Find and rescue Meketre in the canyon bandits’ camp
- Defend Meketre
- Speak to Meketre
- Kill all bandits at Meketre’s village
- Speak to Meketre
Objective: Bring the dead back to the cart
After speaking to the farmer you will get yellow waypoints to 3 dead bodies in the fields. You must pick them up and drop them off at the cart near the farmer. The tricky part is that there are hippos in the fields. You can either kill them or just rush to the bodies and back to the cart, completely ignoring the hippos. If you’re quick enough they won’t hurt you. It’s important that you put the bodies right by the cart. It’s okay to put them on the ground there, they just have to be within 1-2 yards / meters of the cart. Now talk to the farmer.
Objective: Find and rescue Meketre in the canyon bandits’ camp
The next waypoint leads to a bandit camp in the mountains. Use Senu to scout the area, mark the enemies and find your main objective. Kill all the bandits in the camp and feel free to loot the camp’s chest. After all bandits are dead, open the cage where Meketre is trapped. The reason you should kill everyone first is because otherwise you’ll have to defend Meketre as he exits the camp and that only complicates things.
Objective: Defend Meketre + Speak to Meketre
Assuming you killed all bandits beforehand this step will be very easy. Just watch Meketre as he exits the camp and then talk to him. If you didn’t kill all bandits and they notice him escaping you’ll have to put up a fight and keep Meketre from getting killed.
Objective: Kill all bandits at Meketre’s village
The next waypoint is a bit further away. There’s a small village with nearly a dozen bandits roaming the streets and murdering the villagers. Kill all bandits. This part is tricky to do in stealth so you’ll most likely have to engage in open combat. I shot most enemies with the bow from a rooftop. Don’t let the bandits gang up on you, take out as many as possible with arrows and kill the last few in melee combat.
Objective: Speak to Meketre
Speak to Meketre one last time after defeating the bandits to finish the quest.
This concludes “The Hungry River” Side Quest.
