When approaching Adiel, she will tell her husband was dragged away by the dreugh and she asks the Vestige for help. Her husband had tried to fight back but the dreugh wounded him and dragged him off to their spawning pools. He might still be alive.

When the Vestige leave Dreughside on the south-west side, they'll find some large cocoons on several places. Inside are trapped citizens of Dreughside. They must free several of these in order to get some more news from one villager. When enough citizens are freed, the last one will tell the Vestige to look near the Ancient Statues.

Following the stream nearby they will eventually come across the Ancient Statues and near is another cocoon. Smash it and inside is Arcady, happy to be freed and being able to breathe again. When talking to him, he will tell them the dreugh were keeping them for food and feeding them to their young ones. He rewards the Vestige with a small sum of GoldIcon.
