Black Book is filled with a lot of little side quests and battle puzzles, which give you a break from the normal setup of the game to try something different.
However, some of them can be tough to crack with multi-turn battles to deal with. If you are not sure how to find or solve, the Dog Creek task here is how:
How to Solve the Dog Creek Task in Black Book
Before you can start this battle puzzle, you first need to find it. It should pop up while you are helping with Nikolay’s quest. It should show up as “Dog Creek” on the map.
Once you go to the marked location, you will get a dialogue screen with two prompts:
- Inspect the Creek
- Leave the location
Choose to inspect the creek and then take the figure, a Golden Goddess artifact that will give you +2 Prayer on battle start. Right after that, you will be forced to battle it out in a 3-turn battle puzzle.
Here’s how to beat it:
For the 1st turn, you want to take out the middle demon first. The one with 14hp. If you don’t, it’ll buff the other demons and give them an extra 10 hp. You want to use Ognevitsa for 9 damage, and Nikolay for 5 damage. It should do the trick.
After that, you’ll need to take out the demon with 30HP on the right. He is gearing up to disable your black words, which is why you want to use well-versed and all the black words you can on your 1st turn. Use Korkusha on him, and then Bloon-burn to give enemies that attack your waste.
For the 2nd turn, there’s not much to do since your black words are blocked. So, you’ll use the white words you have. First Audelai, then Altar, and finally Lazarus.
Finally, for the 3rd turn, you’ll want to use Skorchen to deal 12 damage to the right demon. Prepolah to deal 3 damage to all, and Ruda to deal 2 damage to the left demon. The waste you applied should finish them off at this point.
That’s it. The puzzle is done and you get the artifact.

World of Warcraft: Voices From the Dust Quest Guide
The Voices from the Dust quest is one of the many quests that were part of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion for World of Warcraft.
With the classic Wrath of the Lich King expansion for World of Warcraft released just a few days ago, veteran players who played in the expansion back then were eager to test it out. Of course, this also brought forth a resurgence of new ones who want to see what the classic WoW experience has to offer.
Needless to say, WoW has a ton of quests that players can do. In WotLK, one of the many quests you can do is Voices from the Dust.
In this guide, I’ll show you what you need to do in order to complete this quest.
Voices From the Dust Quest Guide in World of Warcraft
First off, you want to start the quest by talking to the Image of Drakuru who you can find on Grizzly Hills. You can refer to this image for his exact location on the map:
After accepting the quest, Drakuru will ask you to collect a bunch of stuff namely the Drakkari Tablets and 5 pieces of Secret Mojo. Then, you want to go to the Drakil’jin Ruins and head inside the dungeon. Go toward the quest marker to find the Drakkari Tablets on the ground. Simply interact with them to loot them.
Next, exit the dungeon and head outside to the ruins. Defeat the Drakkari Oracles and Drakkari Protectors that you can find in the area for a chance to drop Sacred Mojo. Each of these monsters has around a 50% chance to drop the item, so farming it shouldn’t take that long.
Once you have both items, head over to the quest marker which is just within the ruins. Here, you’ll find Drakuru’s Braziers. All you need to do is use Drakuru’s Elixir which you obtained from the Cleansing Drak’Tharon quest.
It will consume all of your Sacred Mojo and cause the Image of Drakuru to appear right in front of you. Simply turn in the quest afterward to complete it and receive the rewards.
