All professions


First journey to the Grove and talk to Caithe. She tells you to go to Anwen beach and talk to Carys. There may be an event in this area where angry hyleks take over Anwen village, and some hang around close to the mission marker. Care might be required.

You find Carys on the beach, she has just planted three seed mortars. You may want to stay close to the mortars, because you are about to be attacked by several waves of Risen undead. Carys has a big hammer and is a pretty good fighter too. She will revive herself should she die between waves.

After some waves of undead, Carys will warn you that undead are trying to flank you, and lead you over a hill to another part of the beach. There are some mine seeds on the ground here which you could pick up and plant if you are fast. To plant one, pick it up, then choose the type of mine plant you want, from 1 to 3, and point the targeting marker where you want the plant to grow.

Several waves of Risen will attack. The final boss undead is a veteran brute with a big hammer. He can hit pretty hard.

After you beat him, talk to Carys. The Valiant will decide that the krait must have kidnapped Carys's friend Tegwen. The next mission involves going to rescue her. This requires underwater combat, so make sure you get a good underwater weapon and practice with it to unlock the skills before starting the next mission.

Dreamer's Terrace[edit]

When approaching Caithe and Trahearne:

Caithe: At last you return from Orr, brother. What news?
Trahearne: Zhaitan's power is growing, and the Risen carry its corruption throughout Tyria.
Caithe: As I feared. We must be ready...ah, here comes the Valiant.

Cinematic with Caithe and Trahearne:

Caithe: Greetings, Valiant. I want you to meet Trahearne, another of the sylvari firstborn.
Caithe: Only a few of the firstborn have Wyld Hunts. I am one. Trahearne is another. I believe he carries the heaviest burden of us all.
<Character name>: More difficult than fighting an Elder Dragon?
Caithe: Our task is tangible, if dangerous, young Valiant. His is ephemeral...there may be no solution.
Trahearne: I'm glad to meet you, Valiant, but I'm afraid we have no time for proper welcomes. There is a more immediate matter at hand.
Trahearne: Warden Tegwen patrols the beach at Annwen, destroying the Risen that wash in from Orr. We exchange many letters on the subject.
Trahearne: Her last missive was written during a recent storm, and mentioned an Orrian artifact she'd seen wash up on the beach.
Trahearne: Tegwen said she intended to retrieve it—but since then, I've heard nothing. I fear for her safety.
<Character name>: I'd be happy to go and look for her, Trahearne. If she's in trouble, I'll lend her a hand.
Caithe: Good. It will be useful for you to see what we are fighting, Valiant. Orr is growing stronger, day by day.
<Character name>: I'm ready to witness the dragon's corruption. I'm not afraid.
<Character name>: As soon as I know more about what's happened to Tegwen, I'll contact you.

Speaking with your two allies:

Caithe: Thank you for aiding us, Valiant. Tegwen is an excellent warden. Her disappearance puts lives at risk.

What can you tell me about Tegwen?
She's a clever strategist, an exemplary member of the Cycle of Dusk. A fighter and a scholar.
Talk more option tango.png
Where was she seen last?
She guards the beach by the Hamlet of Annwen. Her partner, Carys, is still in the area.
Talk end option tango.png
Don't worry. I'll find her.
Talk end option tango.png
Don't worry. I'll find her.
Talk end option tango.png
I won't let you down. Farewell!
Trahearne: Thank you, <Character name>. I appreciate your help. If there's anything you need to know, you have but to ask.
Talk more option tango.png
I'm curious. Can you tell me more about your Wyld Hunt?
I am challenged with cleansing the land of Orr. In my dream, I saw it green and growing again.
Talk more option tango.png
Wow. That will be very difficult. Can dragon corruption be reversed?
I don't know...but I must try. Every day it feels more overwhelming, but I refuse to give up hope.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask you something else?
Ask. I'll do my best to answer.
Talk more option tango.png
I'm curious. Can you tell me more about your Wyld Hunt?
Talk more option tango.png
What can you tell me about Tegwen?
Talk more option tango.png
Did Tegwen tell you anything about the artifact?
Talk end option tango.png
Actually, I'll head out now. Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
I understand. I'll do my best to find Tegwen.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask you something else? (Leads to same lines as above)
Talk end option tango.png
I'll think about that. Thank you, Trahearne.
Talk more option tango.png
What can you tell me about Tegwen?
She is so insightful. When Orrian artifacts wash onto our beach, we have many discussions.
Talk more option tango.png
Was she just curious about them?
Indeed. I've become something of a mentor to her, and we share our information.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
You speak very highly of her. I'll do my best to find out what happened.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
I'll do my best to find her. Thank you.
Talk more option tango.png
Did Tegwen tell you anything else about the artifact she found?
Sadly, no. Only that she'd seen something unusual on the beach, and when the storm was over, she'd seek it out.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
I'll find her, I promise.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for your help. I'll do my best to try and find Tegwen.

Quetzal Bay[edit]

When approaching Carys:

Carys: One more seed plant—there we go. Perfect.

Cinematic before the battle:

Carys: Teg—oh! You're not Tegwen. Thorns and brambles, where is she?
<Character name>: I'm looking for Tegwen, too. A firstborn sent me to check on her. Who are you?
Carys: My name is Carys. Tegwen and I are both Wardens here in Annwen. We're supposed to protect the beach, but I can't—oh, no! The Risen are coming!
Carys: Please, stranger. Help me keep those monsters off the beach! We'll talk after!

Talking with Carys:

Carys: Hurry! Plant as many seeds as you can!
Talk end option tango.png
I'm on it.

During the battle with the undead:

Carys: Hold your ground. The undead are approaching!

When the marker on the map moves:

Carys: They're trying to flank us! Over here!
Carys beckons to <Character name>.

Further battle lines:

Carys: Stay strong! We almost have them!
Carys: Yes! They're all dead! Well...really dead this time!
Carys cheers for <Character name>.

Cinematic after the battle:

<Character name>: Very well, Warden Carys. The beach is safe again. Now, what can you tell me about Tegwen?
Carys: She's my very good friend and my mentor. She was teaching me how to be a good Warden, but now she's missing, and I'm all alone.
<Character name>: Calm down. When did you last see her?
Carys: Five nights ago, when a storm hit the village. We were at the watchpost. Tegwen spotted something flashing like bright starlight, down on the beach.
Carys: She went to investigate the next morning, as soon as the storm ended. Tegwen was gone before I woke up. She never returned.
Carys: I searched and searched, but there was no sign of her. I know she's not dead! If she'd been killed, I would have found her remains.
<Character name>: That's true if she was attacked by undead, but what about krait? They occasionally take captives.
Carys: Krait? Oh, pollen powder, I hadn't thought of that. I was concentrating on the Risen!
<Character name>: There are krait to the south, on Kraitbane Island. I bet those cold-hearted snakes kidnapped her.
<Character name>: Leave behind a wall of seed-plants to guard the village and meet me at Kraitbane Island. We'll find Tegwen.

Talking to Carys after the cinematic:

Carys: You're wonderful! I'm so glad we worked together.
You can call me <Character name>. You did very well, yourself.
You're so brave! Tegwen's always telling me not to be so brave. Tells me to look before I leap, even when I'm standing still.
Talk more option tango.png
Speaking of Tegwen, can I ask you something?
Absolutely. Ask me anything, <Character name>! I'm an open leaf.
Talk more option tango.png
You said you know Tegwen. Was she your partner?
Mentor, more like. She's very kind to me, and teaches me all sorts of things. We defend this beach together.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask you something else?
Talk more option tango.png
Can you tell me more about Tegwen?
She's my best friend. When I woke from the Dream, the undead were attacking. Tegwen threw me a sword so I could defend the Grove.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
That's one way to wake up.
Talk more option tango.png
Have you seen many krait in this area?
Talk more option tango.png
What's it like to be a warden in Annwen?
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for your time, Carys.
Talk end option tango.png
She sounds like a good partner, watching out for you.
I enjoy killing undead. Krait'll be a nice challenge, too.
You're so fierce! We're going to get along just fine. Just point me at those krait, and we'll tear them apart!
Talk more option tango.png
Right! Can I ask you something?
Talk end option tango.png
You got it.
My name is Valiant <Character name>, pretty flower. I'm at your service.
Oh my, a Valiant! And you're so nice. So...uh...want to go kill things together? Is that how this goes?
Talk more option tango.png
Plenty of time for that later. Can I ask you something?
Talk end option tango.png
Something like that.
Talk end option tango.png
Me too. Take care.

My story[edit]

After the Storm.jpg

Trahearne's friend, Tegwen, has gone missing while looking for an Orrian artifact. She was last seen with a sylvari named Carys, near the hamlet of Annwen.

I helped Carys defend the beach. Tegwen was searching for the artifact in dangerous territory. She may have been captured by krait.
