Veronica is very worried. Her fiance went into the big spooky manor house to ask for directions. An hour later and he's still not out yet.

Learning about Ernest

After speaking to Veronica about her husband not coming back, you will proudly accept the quest.

Enter Draynor Manor and climb up the stairs, then climb up the nearby ladder to reach the top of the Manor. Talk to Professor Oddenstein; you will be informed of Ernest's mishap. He's a chicken! Not a cowardly one either!

To turn him back to a human Professor Oddenstein needs the stolen parts to his machine. He needs to find a pressure gauge, a rubber tube, and an oil can.

On the second floor you'll find some fish food in the room behind the staircase. Pick it up. Head over to the kitchen on the main floor. Pick up the poison on the floor, and head out the back way. Before you go, pick up the spade if you don't already have one.

Head outside and locate the compost area just the the west of the Manor. Use your spade on the compost and retrieve the key. Once this is completed, head south to the fountain. Now use your poison on the fish food and use it on the fountain. Congratulations, you just owned some piranhas! Now you can safely get a pressure gauge from the foutain.
