in the process of aquiring the Skyscale we're supposeed to talk to Almorra to receive a buff that counts kills, Almorra's Directive. I received the buf on two characters and did the kills I had to do. On one character the buff vanished, on the other character I still have it even after fully unlocking the Skyscale in the mean time.
If you want X, and Y is needed to get get X, you also have to want Y if you really want X. If you don't want Y, you don't want X. It's easy.
