Ogden Stonehealer

Jump to: navigation, search

Magister Ogden Stonehealer is the last dwarf interacting with the surface races of Tyria. Like all who underwent the Rite of the Great Dwarf, he was transformed into a creature with a single-minded dedication to the defeat of Primordus and its Elder Dragon kin, but rather than follow his brothers into battle in the Depths of Tyria, Ogden has stayed on the surface to aid the Durmand Priory and act as a compendium of lore on the Elder Dragons. As the last dwarf, he is a constant target of the vengeful dredge.

In his former life, Ogden was a priest of the Great Dwarf, and an expert on the prophecies of the end times of the dwarves. When those prophecies came to pass, in 1078 AE, Ogden helped facilitate the Transformation of the Dwarves and was instrumental in the defeat of the Great Destroyer. Ogden did not initially undergo the Rite, although eventually all dwarves were made to—by force, if necessary.

Living World Season 2[edit]


When not a member of the Durmand Priory,
You're blocking my light. What? You'll be dead long before me, so let's not form an attachment, okay?

Sure thing.
As a member of the Durmand Priory, before The Battle of Claw Island
Your legend grows bigger than your head. Take care that you're not crushed beneath its weight.

Will do.
As a member of the Durmand Priory, after The Battle of Claw Island
About Sieran. Friends come and go. That's life. The Mists are full of those who gave their lives to save others. The best we can hope for is one day be one of them.

As a member of the Durmand Priory, after finishing the Personal Story
What are you doing back here? Don't you have a dragon to kill or something?

When The Dreamer I: The Experimental Short Bow or The Moot III: The Energizer is unlocked
Is there a reason you're bothering me?
Talk more option tango.png
I need to do some research in Special Collections.
Very well, but be quick about it.

Thank you.

Never mind.
When Nevermore IV: The Raven Spirit is unlocked and the Ancient Dwarven Texts are in your inventory
Is there a reason you're bothering me?
Talk more option tango.png
I recovered these ancient texts from the dredge.
Thank you. I will ensure that they are enshrined properly.
Talk end option tango.png
Kind of you. Farewell.
Talk end option tango.png
Never mind.
When Burden of Choice is unlocked
You look concerned. What did you do?
Talk more option tango.png
Ogden, I need help. I'm seeing visions of a Ley-Line Anomaly.
Just because I'm old doesn't mean I know how to solve all of your problems, child.
Talk more option tango.png
Ogden, please. You must know something.
I know that you encountered an incredibly high concentration of magic and it's incredibly likely that there are unforeseen consequences.
Talk more option tango.png
Do you think this has ever happened in the past?
Perhaps. Do you remember the seers?
Talk more option tango.png
They fought the Elder Dragons when the dragons previously awoke.
Exactly. They also created the bloodstone to protect the remaining magic from being consumed by the dragons. That was a key component to how they survived.
Talk more option tango.png
So they must have dealt with high concentrations of magic.
It's possible, but I am hardly an expert on the seers. Luckily for you, Tranton Hainsworth is. He was trained as a novice by Randall Greyston. He's in the library across the hall.

Thanks, Ogden.
