I'm playing through the earliest content of a Sylvari ranger and there's this quest from Mender Aviala. It feels like it's a no-brainer; a go-do-this-simple-thing quest but I'm lost and my local peers aren't being helpful. I go to the what was the SE of the map at the time I got the quest and there's this circle of jungle trolls and there are a couple of events (rescuing puppies and killing the troll king) and I've done those each several times while wandering around just killing trolls. The one person in-game who answered my questions said the salve is just lying around but I haven't seen any such thing.
So, am I in the right place? Is it a drop or some terrain feature or what? What am I doing wrong?
