"Seems there's a special sort of ale crafted just for the duke by a witch, from the rarest of herbs. Us common folk do work that's a damn sight harder than sitting a throne all day. We deserve a taste of the good stuff, too!"
In order to complete this quest, the quests Lost and Found and Witch Hunt must first be completed - otherwise the route to the plant will not be accessible.
The King Bay Leaf can only be found in the far regions of the Witchwood near Guardian's Grave. However it does not grow abundantly there and several trips may be required, with time between allowing some more of the plant to regrow.
