You say, 'what second escaped gladiator?'
Grahan Rothkar says 'It appears our prize gladiator has escaped. He is a minotaur hero!! Trained by our best. He took down five of our greatest warriors during his escape. Rumor has it he fled to his homeland in the Steamfont Mountains. They say he is an outcast and does not live with his people. He appears during times of great need to champion the minotaurs. Return his shackles to me and glory is yours!!
The Minotaur Hero is in Steamfont Mountains. I found him at about 1500, -1200 running north. He spawns across the valley directly ahead of the Minotaur cave entrance and then immediately appears to start running. The means to get him to spawn appears to be to kill Minotaurs in the Minotaur caves, and keep checking tracking for his appearance. For non-tracking types doing this quest, but the time that I was at the cave entrance, the Hero was on the far side of the valley ahead and right of the entrance concealed behind the ruined tower, so if you have a helping partner I would camp them there looking south. Contrary to what I have read elsewhere, I can categorically say that killing any Minotaur can cause the Hero to spawn, not just the Slaver immediately inside the entrance. I can also say that the Heros spawn mechanism would appear to be a certain percentage chance every time that you kill a Minotaur. First time that I did this quest, it took me 4 hours to get him to spawn. Then I went back with some friends and he spawned in about an hour. Whats more, after he spawned the once, we had time spawn two more times within 10 minutes! When you kill the Minotaur Hero, he drops some Minotaur Hero Shackles . Give these Minotaur Hero Shackles to Grahan Rothkar for the following response:
Grahan Rothkar says 'You are a true Steel Warrior!! Now you shall wear my hero bracers. I designed them for my greatest gladiators and you have shown yourself mighty enough to wear them.
Your faction standing with Steel Warriors got better.
Your faction standing with Guards of Qeynos could not possibly get any better.
Your faction standing with Corrupt Qeynos Guards got worse.
Your faction standing with The Freeport Militia got worse.
Your faction standing with Knights of Truth got better.
You gain experience!!
You receive 2 platinum from Grahan Rothkar.
