I've been trying for a while now but I can't figure out the quest named "Bounty: Slith Spy" where you're supposed to find a horde spy northeast of Fort Dranlon...

When I first got to Fort Dranlon there were three "Horde Spy" guys at the hill SW in the square east of Fort Dranlon, and I killed them before I got the quest from the job board and now I can't claim the bounty... is this a bug? (I don't want to reload to a save before getting there because I've covered too much ground since.)

There's another fellow called Veress'yss just to the north but he seems unkillable in that fight since he always escapes no matter how hard you pummel him. Unrelated?

Veress'yss is the one you are looking for.  When he escapes, you're supposed to chase him.  You can't jump down the hole like he did, I guess you don't have the ninja skills, but there are other ways to get down there.

Oh darn, why didn't I think of that... I just figured he crawled back up right away because he kept coming back to that spot! I know just where to look, too! Thanks smile

I've been having trouble with this quest too. Specifically where should I look after he's dived down the hole? It seems like I've searched everywhere between Cotra, Silvar, and Fort Dranlon (both in the tunnels and above ground) and I can't find him.

Go east from where he dives in and find a route below.  Then head back west towards where you fought him to find a portal.  Buff and jump in because you are almost there.

Had trouble with this quest at my buddies... may be a bug.

We fought this guy on the surface until he jumped down the hole, but before getting the quest. So I decided it would be a better idea to get the quest to kill him before chasing him below. Did so, came back to the caves underneath, went through the portal.

The room is empty and Veress'yss and his alleged lizards never spawn. Anyone else see this before?

If you chase him below but then leave the area without finishing him off, you'll have to do the first fight over again. He should be waiting on the surface where you originally met him.

I'm having lots of trouble with this quest too.  I get Veress'Yss to jump down the hole, and then when I follow below to try and finish him off, cannot get into the room where he has holed up with his beasts.  There is a portcullis closing off access to the room, and the wheel is on the inside.  I cannot figure out how to open this room.  I presume the room access is on the inside, (other than the wheel?) but cannot find the entry, and, Lord knows, I've traipsed up and down this particular stretch of countryside, both on the surface and below.  I'm almost to the point of throwing the laptop out the window, but it cost me too much!  Is this a bug, of just being far to clever?  Heeeellllllppppp!

There is another tunnel just south of where Veress'Yss is hiding. At the end of the tunnel is a portal. Enter it, and it'll transport you to the correct side of the gate.

Thank you sooooooooooooooo much!  You have just saved my sanity.  I don't know if I ever would have found that portal without help.  It is hiding in plain sight, but then I should have realised.  This is one tricky game, guess that is why I play into the wee, small hours.  Talk about addiction.  Daise

Incidentally, I found this area prior to getting the quest and defeated the undead henchmen. Then, when I got the quest and found him again, it was just him to beat. So sad for Veress'yss! laugh
