[edit] Walkthrough

First you have a drinking contest. There are three rounds. The goal is to reduce your enemy's HP to zero before you die.

Skills

  1. Drink: Take a swig of ale
  2. Fakeout: Fake out your opponent. Your next drink won't reduce health.
  3. Drink water: Drink a glass of water to restore some health
  4. Boast: Boast of your drinking prowess to rally the crowd. This is only effective as a display of showmanship.
  5. Belch: Let loose a belch to damage your opponent. The lower your health, the more powerful it is.
  • Skill 1 reduces both of your HP.
  • Skill 2 causes your next drink to not reduce your HP, but might cause the enemy to release poison.
  • Skill 3 heals both you and the enemy.
  • Skill 4 is channeled and damages your opponent, but only works some of the time.
  • Skill 5 allows you to poison the enemy, and it's stronger when your HP is low.

Exact conditions to make skill 4 work are unclear but seem to be related to how much more HP you have over your enemy, and/or how many drinks you have had without drinking water, and/or if the enemy is poisoned from Skill 5.

General strategy is to alternate between 1 and 2, then release 5 when your HP is low, then boast with skill 4, then recover using 3. Sometimes the poison released from 2 hurts more than drinking, in that case just don't use 2.

For the final pirate, use 1 until you're around 200-300 health, and then belch. Sometimes, the belch will knock the opponent to the ground and you can drink water (3) and they will not drink water after you. Use this method to get kill them off. If they do not fall down after you belch, boast, take one drink of water, and then repeat (drink until you're around 200-300 health) until they fall down and you can drink water and they can't. When they stand up, finish them off.

however, the final enemy gets less benefit from healing (he has more health than you, but heals the same amount or less when he drinks water, so healing is less useful for him) a good alternate strategy is to use 1 until your low on health, then use 5, and then 3. you will gain more benefit (relatively) so you can repeat until they fall.

After the contest is over, you will swim to the next island over, where Demmi Beetlestone is being held. Defeat the prison guard; afterwards, a number of other pirates will approach and engage. When they are all defeated, Tybalt will tell you to meet him and Demmi at Whispers HQ in Lion's Arch. Leave the mission instance and travel to Lion's Arch.

The HQ is in the Crow's Nest pub. Talk to the Bouncer Kinna, then enter the pub instance and go downstairs. Talk to Lady Wii, Tybalt, etc. You must choose which mission you will do next, They Went Thataway or Thrown Off Guard. Then the mission is over, and you can choose a backbrace.

[edit] Dialogues

[edit] The Pirate Camp

When talking to Tybalt:

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Avast! That pirate outfit is excellent. Went me to go over the plan again? You're going to love this-or keelhaul me. Possibly both.
Talk quest option tango.png
I'm fine. I understand everything, and I'm ready to go.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Ready when you are. Wahoo-I mean, yar!
Talk quest option tango.png
Here we go.
Talk more option tango.png
Yeah, go over the plan again. I want to make sure I understand it.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Pirates are vicious, but not so smart. While you distract them, I'll search the camp for any sign of the Minister's daughter.
Talk more option tango.png
Hang on-I'm the distraction? Why not you?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: This one's all you, friend-don't worry! You'll be great. Just trust me, and play along.
Talk quest option tango.png
You worry me, Tybalt...
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Ready when you are. Wahoo-I mean, yar!
Talk quest option tango.png
Here we go.
Talk more option tango.png
I'm looking forward to being the distraction! They won't know what hit 'em.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: That's the spirit! I knew you'd be excited to stick some pirates out of their grog. Trust me, and play along.
Talk quest option tango.png
Should we go in now?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Ready when you are. Wahoo-I mean, yar!
Talk quest option tango.png
Here we go.
Talk more option tango.png
Hey, Tybalt? How exactly did you manage to get these pirate get-ups?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: The Order of Whispers is ready to handle anything-even pirates. Anyhow, on to our task.
Talk quest option tango.png
What's the plan again? I got distracted by the fancy clothes.
(Same response as to: "Yeah, go over the plan again.")

Cinematic with Second Mate Khebril:

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Yarr, me hearties! I'll wager my buddy here can drink you foul-smelling lot under the table! Now, who's got the guts to challenge us?
<Character name>: A drinking competition? What are you doing?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Ssh, just go with it. Trust me.
Second Mate Khebril: Who are you scoundrels, and what's you wager?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: I'm...I'm Two-Tibs A'whisker, and this is...uh...Bloodcovered Backstabbin' Blackjack the Blade. Yeah...and our wager's two fistfuls of gold. Are you in?
Second Mate Khebril: Aye, I'm in. Jackdaws, belly up to the bar! Fill your mugs and lay your money down!

Dialogue with Second Mate Khebril:

Second Mate Khebril: Blackjack, eh? I like it! Let's test your skill, shall we?
Talk quest option tango.png
Ready and able. Bring it on.
Talk more option tango.png
Are the rules still the same in these waters?
Second Mate Khebril: The rules are: you drink, then your opponent drinks. Water will even yer keel, but if you drink any, your opponent gets some, too.
Talk more option tango.png
Any house rules for you Jackdaws?
Second Mate Khebril: Well, cheatin's allowed, so long as yer not caught. The crowd'll murder you! Remember, belchin's yer best weapon against a tough foe.
Talk quest option tango.png
Okay, I'm ready. Let's get this party started!
Talk end option tango.png
Hang on. Let me size up the opposition.

[edit] The drinking competition

Starting the drinking competition (non-cinematic):

Second Mate Khebril: Listen up, you seadogs. Come witness a bout to be remembered! The bold newcomer versus your favorite cheap date, One-Drink Drake!
One-Drink Drake: I hate you guys.
Second Mate Khebril: A titanic match of fortitude and resilience! Let the drinking begin!
One-Drink Drake: I'll drink you under the table, lubber.

When you beat One-Drink Drake (non-cinematic):

One-Drink Drake: Here we go again. One more for the road?
One-Drink Drake: No fair! I can't drink two drinks. I only have four hands.
One-Drink Drake: Room...spinning...
Second Mate Khebril: Hey, One-Drink Drake has lived up to his name. No surprise there.

Starting round two (non-cinematic):

Second Mate Khebril: Our second contender: small but fierce, watch out for Kiplr the Tippler!
Kiplr the Tippler: Prepare to be inebriated into inebri-livion, stranger.
Second Mate Khebril: Round two...go!
Kiplr the Tippler: Brains, brawn, and brigandry-I'll drink until you're pretty, and that'll be a while.

When you beat Kiplr the Tippler (non-cinematic):

Kiplr the Tippler: Slow down, slow down! What do you think this is, a competition?
Kiplr the Tippler: Most forti-forti-forty-fluid-us. Fortuidous. Yeah. That. Whoo!
Kiplr the Tippler: Head goes down, ears go up, that floor looks... mighty soft.
Second Mate Khebril: Ho! The Tippler has toppled!

Starting round three (non-cinematic):

Second Mate Khebril: Our contest isn't over. Welcome that hollow-legged hellion, Grana Gruzzlemaw!
Grana Gruzzlemaw: No time for talking. Must drink!
Second Mate Khebril: This is for the win! No excuses, and no prisoners. Drink up till you're falling down!
Grana Gruzzlemaw: Keep your eyes on the booze and your head in the game, fool.

When you beat Grana Gruzzlemaw (non-cinematic):

Grana Gruzzlemaw: Not bad. I'm in for the long haul, though. Can you keep up?
Grana Gruzzlemaw: Titan's teeth... what kind of filthy shenanigan-liver do you have?
Grana Gruzzlemaw: You must be made of sponges! Oh, wise one...teach me...teach me your ways.

Cinematic after winning the competition:

Second Mate Khebril: Unbelievable! The newcomer, Blackjack, is the last drinker standing! We got ourselves a new Potentate of Potables!
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Surprise, surprise, eh, Khebril? I mean... Yarr! Flotsam and jetsam. Now, how 'bout that wager?
Second Mate Khebril: Fine, fine. I'll go fetch your gold, you thievin' sea-whisker.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Okay, listen up. While you were guzzling away, I found Demmi. She's under heavy guard on the other side of the water.
<Character name>: So there was a plan after all-beyond getting me sloshed, I mean.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Of course there was. What did I tell you? You just have to trust me.

[edit] Rescuing Demmi

At the door to the prison cell (non-cinematic):

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Yarr and rarr and blimey, matey! How's about you let us fellow pirates through? Avast, and bosun the prow-cap, sailor!
Jackdaw Jailer: Who did you say you were again, fella?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: I'm Two-Tibs A'whisker, and this is Bloodcovered Backstabbin' Blackjack the Blade. Yarr. Raise the crow's foot and rope down the jib-jabber-gabber...thingy...
Jackdaw Jailer: You're kidding. Mates! We've got trespassers! Shank 'em!
Demmi Beetlestone: Is there someone out there? Help! Get me a sword, I'll help you kill 'em!

Cinematic after defeating the jailers:

Demmi Beetlestone: Aren't you a little sober to be a pirate?
<Character name>: Look, we're with the Order of Whispers. We've been sent to get you out of here.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: We're here to abscond with you...and with the beer. The beer's already vanished into thin air, so now it's your turn.
Demmi Beetlestone: Thank the goddess Lyssa! I was starting to think the order had forgotten me. Do you have a plan to get us out of this place alive?
<Character name>: Sort of. The idea starts with "run for it" and generally goes downhill from there. Come on!

During the escape (non-cinematic):

Demmi Beetlestone: Tell me there's more to this rescue than staggering and burping.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Well, see, when one part of a plan works, I like to stick with it.
Demmi Beetlestone: Some rescue. No wonder you're called the Order of Whispers-nobody would brag about this.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Watch it, princess.

After all pirates are defeated:

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: I'll escort Demmi to the Lion's Arch safehouse. Meet us there!

[edit] Order of Whispers' safehouse

Dialogue with the bouncer:

Bouncer Kinna: Welcome to the Crow's Nest. You smash anything, Captain Smash here will smash you.
Talk quest option tango.png
Do you know where I can buy some apples?
Bouncer Kinna: You know, for a charr, that Tybalt really seems to have a thing for fruit, doesn't he? Anyhow, go on in—they're waiting for you downstairs.
Talk quest option tango.png
Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll be careful.

Cinematic upon approaching Tybalt:

Lady Wi: Tybalt! Thank the Lady of the Mirror. I thought something terrible had happened. Your first field mission, and you go out of contact!
<Character name>: Hang on—first mission? I thought I was the newcomer.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Uh, well, yeah...I might have overstated that. I've been in the Order for years, but this is my first time in the field.
Lady Wi: Initiate, my name is Lady Wi. I'm the Order's agent within the Krytan ministry. This rough-looking gentleman is Benn Tenstrikes, my protector.
Benn Tenstrikes: I was supposed to get Demmi safely out of Divinity's Reach, but I got sacked by Ministry Guards.
Lady Wi: You're lucky to be alive, Benn. Caudecus wields great power in Kryta, and he's none too pleased about his daughter's desertion.
Demmi Beetlestone: How did Landon find me? There's no way the Ministry Guard could have tracked me this far from Divinity's Reach.
Lady Wi: Your father probably purchased a tracking enchantment. Do you have anything you never remove? Something he knew you'd keep with you?
Demmi Beetlestone: My mother's necklace! He's using it to follow me? My father is a coldhearted snake!
Lady Wi: This safehouse will block such divining, but when you leave here, you will be found. Lion's Arch is no longer safe for you.
Lady Wi: Tybalt, Initiate. You must take Demmi to the Chantry of Secrets right away. She'll be safe there.
<Character name>: Your father's treachery could be useful to us, Demmi. If Commander Landon is following the enchantment, we can use it to lead him awry.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Clever. Now, let's work out the details so we can get Demmi out of here, safe and sound.

After the cutscene (non-cinematic):

Lady Wi: Take your time, Initiate. Confer with Tybalt and notify me when you decide.
Benn Tenstrikes: Poor Demmi. Her father has done some terrible things.
Lady Wi: Agreed. But, at the risk of being callous, that's precisely why her information is so valuable.
Benn Tenstrikes: I feel terrible. I shoulda been there to protect Demmi!
Lady Wi: That's laudable, Tenstrikes, but Caudecus is dangerous. I'm not surprised he got the better of you.
Benn Tenstrikes: That scum's already hurt a lot of people. Why can't he just call it quits?
Lady Wi: He wants the Krytan throne. That's why we must get Demmi to safety, and find out what she knows.


If you talk to Tybalt before Demmi (non-cinematic):

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: You should talk to Demmi first. I—I kinda snapped at her, and I know she's feeling low right now. Maybe cheer her up a bit?
Talk end option tango.png
I'll talk to her.

If you talk to Demmi:

Demmi Beetlestone: Thanks for saving me from those pirates. They were horrible brutes! I guess... I guess I've been a little sheltered.
Ferocity
If those pirates had touched you, they wouldn't have survived. I swear it.
Demmi Beetlestone: Oh, thank you! I wish I was that brave while Commander Landon was keeping me locked up in Divinity's Reach.
Talk more option tango.png
Locked up, huh?
Talk end option tango.png
Well, you're free now.
Charisma
Be at peace, my lady. Tybalt and I are capable agents. We'll ensure your safety.
Demmi Beetlestone: I've never been around charr before. Why protect me? I'm a human-my father's a Minister.
Talk more option tango.png
The Order of Whispers crosses all borders, and Tybalt is a gentle and loyal person. You'll see.
Demmi Beetlestone: Very well. I'll trust you both. Thank you.
Talk back option tango.png
Do you mind if I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
I'm glad to hear that.
Dignity
The Order of Whispers has arranged a safe-house for you. We'll take you there right away.
Demmi Beetlestone: I had no idea what to expect from the order, but now I'm glad I contacted them. You've been a godsend.
Talk more option tango.png
Do you mind if I ask you something else?
Demmi Beetlestone: I owe you my life! Ask anything.
Talk more option tango.png
I'm sorry to hear about your mother's necklace. That must be a shock.
Demmi Beetlestone: My mother meant the world to me. I can't believe he'd take advantage of that.
Talk back option tango.png
Do you mind if I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
Some people have no feelings. I'm sorry.
Talk more option tango.png
What is it that you're going to tell the order? It must be pretty important.
Demmi Beetlestone: No offense, but I'm not talking until I'm safe. As long as I know something you don't, I'm safer.
Talk back option tango.png
Do you mind if I ask you something else?
Talk more option tango.png
I understand... but it's sad that you have to think that way.
Demmi Beetlestone: My father raised me. Even if I dislike him, I still learned from the best political mind in Kryta.
Talk back option tango.png
Makes sense. Do you mind if I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
All right, then. I won't ask any more about it.
Talk end option tango.png
I get that.
Talk more option tango.png
Why are you informing on your father? Are you betraying Kryta?
Demmi Beetlestone: I'm not betraying Kryta! He is! Oh... you wouldn't understand. Just get me to safety, and I'll tell the order everything.
Talk back option tango.png
Do you mind if I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
If you're helping Kryta, then you're doing the right thing. I'll trust you.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm glad to hear that.
Talk end option tango.png
That's kind of you to say. Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png
You'll do fine.

If you talk to Benn:

Benn Tenstrikes: So they let Tybalt out of his cave! You must be special, <Character Name>. I've even heard your name, here and there.
Talk more option tango.png
(Norn) Ha! Who hasn't heard of me? I'm the Slayer of Issormir!
Benn Tenstrikes: The things you did to those Sons of Svanir made me wish I was born a norn, to hunt beside you!
Talk end option tango.png
You'll have your chance, human. I expect plenty such deeds in our future.
Talk more option tango.png
(Asura) Undoubtedly because of my incredible invention. Let me tell you more about it...
Benn Tenstrikes: Invention? No, I was talking about the way you took out Researcher... what's her name... Teyo? Nasty little thing, she was.
Talk end option tango.png
Well, it's good to know my efforts are recognized. Good day, Benn.
Talk more option tango.png
(Human) Do they still talk about me in Divinity's Reach?
Benn Tenstrikes: They can't stop talking about the Hero of Shaemoor! The way you took out Kellach...nice. Makes me proud to be Krytan.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks, Benn. That means a lot to me.
Talk more option tango.png
(Charr) Heard of my battle-prowess, you mean. Like the time I saved the legions...
Benn Tenstrikes: When Smodur the Unflinching takes an interest in someone, the Order of Whispers does, too. Well done, Centurion.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks, mouse. I appreciate it.
Talk more option tango.png
(Sylvari) So far from the Grove? Tell me, Benn, what tale has been spun?
Benn Tenstrikes: They say you fought nightmare before you were even born, and that you're fated to take down Zhaitan. That's my kind of destiny!
Talk end option tango.png
It's not quite a "destiny" as you understand it...but thank you for the kind words.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm glad to be here, Benn.

If you talk to Lady Wi as a non-human noble or human non-noble:

Lady Wi: I admit I had my reservations about such a new initiate handling this, but you and Tybalt are doing splendidly.
Talk more option tango.png
Isn't your husband a Minister of Kryta, like Demmi's father?
Lady Wi: A minister, yes! But nothing like Caudecus. My husband is a kind and generous man. Caudecus is a serpent.
Talk back option tango.png
Do you mind if I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for everything.
Talk more option tango.png
Do you have any advice on my course of action?
Lady Wi: It's a difficult decision, but I believe either method could be successful. It all comes down to your courage.
Talk back option tango.png
Do you mind if I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for your help.
Talk more option tango.png
How long have you known Demmi?
Lady Wi: Her mother was my dear cousin. I never approved of her match to Caudecus, and when she died, I stepped in as godmother...as best I could.
Talk back option tango.png
Do you mind if I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for your help.
Talk end option tango.png
Thank you for everything, Lady Wi. I appreciate it.

Talking to her as a human noble: (different initial dialogue and first response)

Lady Wi: Pleased to see you in the Order of Whispers, <Character name>. I always knew you would do well, or at least better than poor, hedonistic Faren.
Talk more option tango.png
I had no idea you were a member of the ORder of Whispers! You always seemed so...
Lady Wi: Flighty? It's all right, I take no offense. I spy in the highest halls of the Ministry. Even my husband doesn't know.
Talk back option tango.png
Amazing. Can I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for your help. We'll talk more later.

Discussing the plan with Tybalt (non-cinematic):

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Those pirates were interesting, but tricking those Ministry Guards sound like it could be fun, too.
Talk quest option tango.png
So, what's the plan?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Either Lady Wi puts a spell on the necklace and we try to sneak Demmi out, or Benn Tenstrikes watches over Demmi while we escort a fake through the city as bait.
Talk quest choice tango.png
I say we take the damper spell and sneak her out.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Okay, then. Let's tell Lady Wi we've made up our minds.
Talk end option tango.png
Sounds good.
Talk quest choice tango.png
Let's use a decoy and lay a false trail.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Okay...dunno where we'll get a decoy, but I'm sure Lady Wi can help us think of something.
Talk end option tango.png
Sounds good.
Talk end option tango.png
I need a moment to mull it over.

Cinematic if you choose to use the spell and sneak out:

<Character name>: We've decided to sneak Demmi out under cover of darkness. We'll lose the necklace, mislead Landon, and slip out under his nose.
Lady Wi: Very wise. There's no reason for confrontation if you can simply avoid pursuit altogether.
Lady Wi: Demmi, I want you to stay close to our operatives. Tybalt might be a short-sighted nincompoop, but you can trust him.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Thanks, I...think?
Demmi Beetlestone: I will, Lady Wi. Thank you for everything. The Order of Whispers has been a godsend.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Everyone get supplies, and get some rest. We'll head out once it's dark enough to leave the city unnoticed.

Cinematic if you choose to use a decoy and lay the false trail:

<Character name>: We've decided to leave a false trail, and trick the Ministry Guard into an ambush. Once they're out of the way, it'll be easier to get Demmi to safety.
<Character name>: Tybalt and I will lay an ambush, while Benn gets Demmi out of the city. After we've handled Landon, we'll meet up with you again.
Lady Wi: If you're determined to do this, at least let me make the ruse a good one. With a little magical assistance, Tybalt will make an excellent Demmi Beetlestone.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait...wait. Making a charr like me-look like her? I hope you have some mighty strong magic up your sleeve.
Lady Wi: Don't worry. You'll make a beautiful decoy, Tybalt.
Demmi Beetlestone: You're putting your life in danger for my safety. I won't forget this. Thank you. Thank you all.

If you talk to Tybalt after making your decision:

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: On to step two. I'll hang out with the other agents. You go get started.
Talk end option tango.png
Take care, Tybalt.

[edit] My Story

Down the Hatch.jpg

We rescued Demmi and got her safely back to Lion's Arch. She'll be waiting for me at the safehouse there.

I talked with the bouncer inside the tavern in Lion's Arch. With the proper passwords, I was allowed into the secret Order of Whispers hideout.

Tybalt and Demmi arrived safely in Lion's Arch, but they were tracked via her enchanted necklace and she had to be snuck out of the city again.
