This is one of several new tradeskill quests originating in Abysmal Sea. For general information on these quests, please see the Gates of Discord Progressive Quests description.
The completion of this quest allows you to progress to a baking skill as high as 54 without spending any money. Each step requires that you hand in enough completed items to progress to the next step. When you complete step four, you will be taught how to process taelosian wheat and taelosian mountain wheat. However, at this time there are no recipes that use the processed results, so this ability is not yet useful.
This version of the GoD baking conversion quest requires you to provide taelosian wheat and/or taelosian mountain wheat. If you would rather not have to provide anything, try the Baking Freebie quest.
You start with Tylida Eraldi, a baking vendor. As you begin the first step, she will also give you a book containing instructions on making some other Gates of Discord recipes.

You say, 'Hail, Tylida Eraldi'
Tylida Eraldi squints and looks at you with a slight grin on her face. 'Hello. I don't suppose you're a baker by profession, or perhaps you're [interested] in learning? I have several jobs that I need done, but I just don't have time to do them myself. Are you interested in helping out?'
You say, 'interested?'
Tylida Eraldi says 'This crew needs a lot of food. My specialty is long-lasting food items that can be taken on long journeys. Obviously a lot of Wayfarers are taking a lot of long trips these days. I was wondering if you would mind [helping me] out? I really want to spend more time working with the newly discovered strain of local wheat. There's a wild variety of wheat that only grows in the mountainous areas, which is a very odd place for any wheat to grow, But this stuff grows there, if sparsely. The thing is, there are some very odd properties to this wheat, and with the proper technique it can be made into a very [unique flour]. So if you have a chance, I would be pleased if you could [help out]. Unfortunately, the recipes I'm working on require the use of Taelosian Wheat Flour. If you can find some Taelosian Wheat, Ordin can make flour from it. Bring that to me, and I'll have plenty of tasks for you to do.'
You say, 'unique flour?'
Tylida Eraldi says 'I'm still a bit shocked that wheat is growing on the side of mountains. They even say that some of the creatures up there eat it by the handful like a snack. Obviously we'd prefer to make baked items from it. If you can get me some of that Taelosian Mountain Wheat, I'll make flour out of it. I'll only keep a little of it for myself.'
You say, 'I can help out'
Tylida Eraldi says 'I can definitely use your help. I need some Taelosian Wheat Flour for the tasks I want you to do. Ordin can make flour from the raw wheat if you have any. If you bring me some flour, we can get started. You'll have to sweat a bit before we're done, but if you're up to the task I can reward you with the secret of milling the local wheat. Because I'll be asking you to find your own supplies, I can reward you a bit sooner than Ordin will.'
Ordin Wheasly is right next to Tylida. Give him a taelosian wheat and he will convert it into two taelosian wheat flour. You will need to do this every time you run out of taelosian wheat flour and need more for this quest. Ordin also mentions taelosian mountain wheat. This is a more valuable version of taelosian wheat, and conversion of it provides you with taelosian mountain what flour. Unless you really have a lot of mountain wheat or don't care to use or sell it, you should stick to using taelosian wheat since it works just as well and is less valuable. If you do want to use the taelosian mountain wheat, however, that works just the same wherever taelosian wheat is mentioned here.
STEP ONE: Wayfarer Wheat Crackers
Hand Tylida a Taelosian Wheat Flour.
Tylida Eraldi says 'Thanks for helping me. The first thing I need you to do is bake some Wayfarer Wheat Crackers. These are one of the staples of our scouts, and I don't like letting them leave without as many as they can carry. So take a Small Sack of Taelosian Wheat Flour and Wayfarer Spice and put them in the oven. Don't be tempted by their wonderful smell. Eating them isn't really part of the task.' Tylida smiles. 'Bring them right back to me when you're done.'
She then gives you enough materials to make 10 Wayfarer Wheat Crackers. Combine them in an oven and turn in your successes unstacked. Repeat this process until you have handed in 30 Wayfarer Wheat Crackers. When you give her the next Taelosian Wheat Flour, she will move on to step two.
STEP TWO: Wayfarer Loaf
Tylida Eraldi says 'Hello! Great, thanks for helping. We need to stock up on Wayfarer loaves. They keep a good long time, so I hope to get ahead today and stay that way. Take a Small Sack of Taelosian Wheat Flour, a Wayfarer Spice, and Crushed Nuts and bake them in the oven. A Wayfarer Loaf won't rise much, so don't worry about that. Just bring them back here to me and I'll store them.'
Tylida then gives you enough materials to make 10 Wayfarer Loaf. Combine them in an oven and turn in your successes unstacked. Repeat this process until you have handed in 30 Wayfarer Loaf. When you give her the next Taelosian Wheat Flour, she will move on to step three.
STEP THREE: Wayfarer Cookie
Tylida Eraldi says 'You've been a big help, thank you. This time I need some Wayfarer cookies. These are sort of tough, but very flavorful and tasty. They travel real well, so they're a big hit with Wayfarers, hence their name. Just take a Small Sack of Taelosian Wheat Flour, Wayfarer Spice, and two Pinches of Sugar and bake them up. Please don't try to eat them hot. They really hold onto heat and you'll probably burn yourself. Just bring them to me and I'll get them to those that need them.'
Tylida then gives you enough materials to make 10 Wayfarer Cookies. Combine them in an oven and turn in your successes unstacked. Repeat this process until you have handed in 30 Wayfarer Cookies. When you give her the next Taelosian Wheat Flour, she will move on to step four.
STEP FOUR: Wayfarer Fruitcake
Tylida Eraldi says 'May Brell bless you! I could really use some Wayfarer Fruitcake right now. I know, you've heard that fruitcake is more like wood than food. Well, ours are a little better than wood, but just as durable. I'm not going to make you eat them, that's for the others to accomplish. All I need you to do is put a Small Sack of Taelosian Wheat Flour, Wayfarer Spice, and Heavy Fruit into the oven and bake up some fruitcakes. Bring them back here, use a cart if you must, and I'll see that they find homes.'
Tylida then gives you enough materials to make 10 Wayfarer Fruitcakes. Combine them in an oven and turn in your successes unstacked. Repeat this process until you have handed in 30 Wayfarer Fruitcakes. Give her one more Taelosian Wheat Flour.
Tylida Eraldi says 'You've been of great assistance. I owe you my thanks. I'll find others to do these tasks now. Go over and talk to Ordin and he'll give you your reward. Make sure to tell him that you were of great [assistance].'
Follow her instructions.
You say, 'I was of great assistance'
Ordin Wheasly says 'You have been a big help around the kitchen! I wouldn't feel right continuing to abuse your kindness.' Ordin glances around. 'Take a quick peek into my recipe book. This is the way you grind the Taelosian Wheat into flour.' He quickly shows you the last page of his coveted recipe book. It only takes you a moment to see what the trick is. From now on, all you have to do is put the Taelosian Wheat or Taelosian Mountain Wheat into your mixing bowl and combine it to get the flour. In fact, you are certain that if you work at it long enough, you can produce more usable wheat with practice.'
You now have the ability to turn Taelosian Wheat into Taelosian Wheat Flour in a mixing bowl, as well as Taelosian Mountain Wheat into Taelosian Mountain Wheat Flour. For more information on the conversion process see the Gates of Discord Progressive Quests description.
