Skyscale Reflexes
Primary article: Skyscale Reflexes

You will play several rounds of catch. The higher the difficulty the faster the ball will return to you.

Skyscale Stealth
Primary article: Skyscale Stealth

There is no time limit. The skyscale will stay in the area on the map around the words "Old Command Post". It will make a sound periodically to help you locate it. On harder difficulties it can hide on upper ledges, which may occasionally require jumping, gliding or the springer to reach. Calling target on the skyscale or turning on the "Show all NPC names" option makes this trivial.

After completing this collection you will gain Challenge of the Ancients.png Waiting for Gorrik which will count down until Gorrik sends you the next mail.
