It still can be started independently. This quest teaches you to speak the Avian, Vultak and Blacktalon languages. It opens up a number of other quests, as a result. It is initiated by speaking to Turk, who is near the Teleporter in The Barren Sky at -592, -47.65, -439 . After dazzling you with linguistics he will ask you to speak to Polly in the Barren Sky at -655, 8, -517 , at the end of Windgazer's Hideout. This is up a series of climbable walls.
You will start to converse with her until she sends you home because of bad behavior. Your first task after this will be to head to near the cloud landing pad for whisper wind island which is at -459, -70, -436 and toss the note over the side of the island. This can take a second or two to update so you may want to move around the edge of the island near the cloud platform till it updates.
Your next task will be to return to Turk to get a forged note. However Turk will inform you that you will need to butter up the teacher by giving her a rare fruit called Cactusarii Zephryi. This fruit grows on the northern side of the island and comes from plants or bushels of the same name (around -603, 70, -629 ). You can only get 1 harvest from each plant and you will need 5 of them.
After finding the fruit return to Polly to continue your lesson. Pay close attention because Turk will give you an exam at the end. After a bit more chatting she will send you back to Turk. Turk will ask two simple questions pertaining to the languages you learned and studied. The final question is a bit humorous and I won't spoil it for you. After completion you will learn the basics of the blacktalon, avian, and vultak languages.
Turk Whooyip, an aviak instructor, offered to teach me the basics of volant, the aviak language.
I must learn to recognize the words, phrases and meanings of basic volant in order to learn the aviak language.
Turk will show me how to listen for words in volant dialects.
I've listened to three different dialects of volant.
Turk referred me to another instructor, Polly, who will teach me to differentiate phrases in volant. She is with the other Windgazer refugees.
I've spoken with Polly.
Since I'm not likely to run into my parents here in the Barren Sky, I need to get rid of this note Polly's written to them about my bad behavior. I mean, about Jerome's bad behavior. I'll toss this note over the side of the island near the transport platform.
I've disposed of the note.
I'm sure Polly will expect me to return with a signed note. I'll just forge one and take it to her. Perhaps Turk would be willing to assist me.
Turk has given me a forged note.
Turk recommended I butter Polly up by bringing her some of her favorite fruit from a rare plant known as cactusarii zephryi.
I've located some fruitius cactusarii zephryi for Polly.
With my forged note and these cactus fruit in hand, I will return to Polly and be a model student so that "Jerome" can learn to speak volant.
I've appeased Polly.
I've learned the basics of volant. Now to take my final exam.
In order to feel confident with the language of the aviaks, I need to take my final exam with Turk Whooyip.
The final exam will hopefully cover things I've already learned about volant.
I passed the test.
I've successfully learned volant.
After learning to recognize the words, phrases and meanings of volant, I have gained a basic understanding of the aviaks' language.
