How to complete The Scent of Blood Quest

To start The Scent of Blood Quest, head to the Shadespire tower on the island and talk to the NPC named Rakil.

After you talk to Rakil and accept the quest, head to the second floor of the tower to look for the NPC named Mercenary Ganecron. You will find Mercenary Ganecron lying on the floor. Talk to him to move on to the next objective of the quest.

There will be numerous enemies on each floor but you don’t have to kill them all to complete the quest. Make your way to floors 2 and 4 while ignoring all the monsters to complete the quest faster.

After you talk to Ganecron, head for the fourth floor of the tower and look for Mercenary Kangal. Unfortunately, Mercenary Kangal will already be dead by the time you find him, and there’s nothing you can do about it. After you spot Kangal, just make your way down from the tower and talk to Quest Giver Rakil to complete the quest.
