Walkthrough[edit]

This quest will first lead you to the new area of Dry Top, Challenger Cliffs. Follow the path to the area—you can't use waypoints, or you'll miss some of the checks in the quest.

The instance starts near Crash Site 3. After a brief cutscene of Taimi running away from the Inquest and Scruffy getting disabled, defeat all the Inquest attacking her. You'll first face a group of regular Inquest enemies, then a Light-Infused Golem, which you may have already faced in the event

Defeat the light-infused Inquest golem blocking passage to the ley line hub (80). At this point Scruffy can be revived and ordered to defend you.

After you defeat the golem you can talk to Taimi to convince her to give up her device, which will convince Councillor Phlunt to attend the summit.

Dialogue[edit]

When entering the instance (cutscene)
Taimi: (scream)
Taimi: No! Get away from me! (scream)
Inquest Technician: Stop that golem!
Approaching the Inquest
Braham Eirsson: Hang on, Taimi! We're coming!
Approaching Taimi
Taimi: Braham! Help, Braham! I'm cornered!
Braham Eirsson: Taimi!
Checking on Taimi
Braham Eirsson: Taimi! You kay, kid?
Taimi: Braham! Braham, they were all around me. I thought...
Taimi: (sob)
Braham Eirsson: Hey. Hey now. You're okay. You're fine. They're all gone. We've got your back. You're safe now.
Taimi: (sniffle)
Taimi: What are they doing here? (sniff)
Talking to your allies
Braham: Can you talk to Taimi, please? I don't feel like chasing her again.
Talk end option tango.png
Me neither. One moment.
Phlunt: You will make sure that progeny doesn't run again. I'm wasting valuable time.
Talk end option tango.png
Working on it.
Talking to Taimi
It's too soon! I need more time. If they want my device, they can wait. I'll give it up, later.
Talk quest option tango.png
Remember, Taimi. This is for the greater good.
Explain to me how rewarding evil, not to mention theft from promising students, is for the greater good. They're stealing my genius.
Talk quest option tango.png
You're sacrificing it to get them to the summit.
Why do I have to be the one to sacrifice something? Especially something this important!
Talk quest option tango.png
Okay. If you really don't want to give it up...
No, it's okay. I understand. It just makes me so mad. It's just that they don't deserve it. It's MY work. But, the summit is important.
Talk quest option tango.png
Thanks, Taimi.
Follow-up conversation
Taimi: Oh, all right. I'll do anything if it helps us get rid of Mordremoth.
Councillor Phlunt: That's a good decision, progeny. You're lucky to be alive.
Taimi: "That's a good decision, progeny. You're lucky to be alive."
Braham Eirsson: Taimi. Remember what we talked about.
Taimi: Fine. Take it. But if you break it, you pay for it.
Talking to your allies
Taimi: Hmph.
Talk more option tango.png
Are you okay?
I'll be fine. I just need some time.
Talk end option tango.png
Okay. Maybe the summit will cheer you up.
Talk end option tango.png
Hang in there.
Phlunt: Perhaps you're not such a bad influence. You did get her to see reason after all.
Talk more option tango.png
Yes, I suppose I did. As long as you're coming to the summit, yes?
Yes. I'll be there. I can't promise I'll agree to anything you propose, but I'll be there. I gave my word.
Talk end option tango.png
And we all know how reliable your word is.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll see you at the summit.
Talking to Braham
I'm glad you were here. Kid's stubborn, but...well, I can relate.
Talk quest option tango.png
Me too. You got this? I need to get to the Grove to prepare for the summit.
I'll take Taimi to the Grove once she's calmed down. Losing her invention and getting cornered by the Inquest really scared her. Seeing all those leaders in one place should cheer her up, though.
Talk quest option tango.png
It's going to be quite the event. See you there.
Talking to Braham again
I'll get Taimi to the summit. Meet you at the Grove?
Talk end option tango.png
Yeah.

My story[edit]

Dry Top loading screen.jpg

Braham and I tracked Taimi from the ley line hub into Dry Top. We caught up with her in the upper cliffs, where we found her surrounded by Inquest who were trying to steal her invention. They had incapacitated Scruffy and cornered her at the edge of a cliff. Braham and I gave them a sound beating before Phlunt and his associates arrived. Taimi handed over the W.R.D., since Phlunt's attendance at the summit hinged on it.

Taimi got a good scare today. Seeing her exposed and without the aid of her golem reminded me that, while she's a strong and brilliant kid, she still needs support and guidance from us—especially Braham.
