Find Entomologist Hissili (Haegra Malath at -470, -1265, 23).

You say, 'Hail, Entomologist Hissili'
Entomologist Hissili says, 'You are a bold one stranger, to make your way to me when my brethren would eat you in a single gulp.'
You say, 'Times are desperate and I go where I am bidden.'
Entomologist Hissili says, 'Bidden, you say? On whose orders do you travel to the land of the Ysthar?'
You say, 'Lady Shaina sent me because you are most knowledgeable about the boundary between life and death.'
Entomologist Hissili sighs.
Entomologist Hissili says, 'Ahhhh yes, this is such a fascinating time of the year. The veil is at its thinnest between the two. The living and the dead are near close enough to touch, parted by a mere sliver.'
Entomologist Hissili's tongue flickers and you get the impression that, if he had proper eyelids, they would be closed.
You say, 'Yes, that is exactly the problem, the barrier is thin and there are some who attempt to dissolve it altogether.'
Entomologist Hissili starts visibly.
Entomologist Hissili says, 'What? Nobody knows what would happen if the boundary did not exist. Maybe the living and dead would swap places, and maybe everything would be simply undead, neither one nor the other.'
Entomologist Hissili stops speaking and looks thoughtful for a moment.
Entomologist Hissili says, 'Well it is not a thing I would do myself and I have some concerns, but as a student of such things part of me really wants to know what would happen.'
You say, 'But Lady Shaina said you would help us!'
Entomologist Hissili says, 'I may, and I may not. It is a difficult decision and I haven't made up my mind yet.'
You say, 'Is there any task I could do for you or something I could bring back to convince you to help us?'
Entomologist Hissili says, 'I have everything I need here except for company when I am bored. So few of my kin tolerate outsiders that nobody comes simply to visit.'
You say, 'Please, your wisdom is known across the whole of Dalaya, surely you know how to help. I would hate for anyone to think you did nothing because you were afraid.'
Entomologist Hissili's fangs suddenly seem larger as he thunders, 'Fool! You must be freshly hatched to think I would fall for the pride trick. I am irritated, but also reluctantly just the tiniest bit impressed. I'll tell you what, since you believe yourself so clever, we will play a game of riddles. If you answer them correctly, you will have my help. If you do not, then you fail.'
You say, 'It seems I have no other choice, I will do it.'
Entomologist Hissili says, 'Good!'
Entomologist Hissili says, 'Let's try this one.'
Note: At this point you will be asked five riddles. You will have to type the correct answer. Most riddles are about classes or the gods of Dalaya.
This portion of quest dialog has been censored.
Posting answers to Main Quest quizzes or riddle quests is prohibited.
Entomologist Hissili looks slightly disappointed.
Entomologist Hissili says, 'I suppose it is just as well, the boundary is there for a reason, and curiosity is not a good enough excuse to stand by while it falls. I will aid the Lady Shaina.'

You have completed a quest. [Riddle Me This]

I have successfully answered Hissili's riddles and secured his assistance
