    Has anyone been able to get a quest from this new NPC at the zoo, either in Fel or in Tram?

    The quest giver is Lyla - no clue where she is - and you need to fullfill the quest and bring the item to Iakas.

    She's at the north docks of Jhelom, inside the wooden... uh... thingy before the docks.
    (at least on Drachenfels)

    Now only to find slimes on our homeshards... :/

    In Napa, Iakas says that he has nothing for me at this time. Also, I went to Jhelom to see if Lyla was there, she wasn't. I'm guessing she's either elsewhere or we'll just have to wait for the next fix?

    Lyla is there. I saw you in Jhelom looking at the same time I was. :) Look at the northwest docks on the main island. (Not the southern docks.)

    I Found Lyla and she gave me a quest. I have 3 basins in my pack I have to dye with the slimes. Now to even try and find the slimes.. blahhh!

    I talked to Lyla again and she referred me to other "adventurers" around me to assist me.

    This was the original thread for the asian slime event:

    Do the slimes have to be a certain type? Or will the ones in Fire dungeon work ok?

    Not sure what all I'm getting into here, but for the benefit of anyone else that hasn't started it yet, here's what Lyla the Researcher has to say:

    Pursuit

    Oh, I beg your pardon! I am Lyla, assistant to the Zoologist Iakas. I'm searching for samples from the gelatinous family of slimes -- such an amazing species! -- for him. They have some monetary value as well, as they excrete a pigment that can be used as a dye. Yet I can't even seem to catch one! They're moving so...well, I've never seen anything like it. If you think you can do better, would you collect three samples and deliver them to Iakas as [sic] the Royal Britannian Zoo? Use these basins -- they can hold the slime safely.

    If you accept the quest, the objective is to "use the slimes to dye three specimen basins" and the reward is "a Token of the Zoologists' Gratitude." You receive three white blessed "Specimen Basins."

    If you go back to Lyla and click on her without doing something with the basins, she says, "If you have any trouble finding it, ask other adventurers around you and I am sure someone will aid you."

    If you click on Iakas without completing the quest, he says, "Oh, you're collecting the samples for Lyla? Do you have three?" If you press Continue at that point, you get a message that you do not have everything you need and have x number of items but require 3.
