Dialogue[edit]

This is a dangerous land you've come to. We face everything from devourers to the Flame Legion—daily.
Talk more option tango.png Sounds dangerous all right.
Oh, it is! I've got my inventions to keep me busy, but I still take my life into my hands out there.
Talk more option tango.png What inventions?
My most recent is the metal detector. You can use it to find scrap metal beneath the ground! Amazing, no?
Talk end option tango.png That's pretty amazing. Hope to see it in action. Bye.
Talk end option tango.png I bet. Good-bye.
Talk more option tango.png Have you any inventions to combat them?
Actually, I do! I've got a great thumper turret that I can sell you, if you are interested.
Talk merchant tango.png Let's have a look.
Talk end option tango.png Good to know. Bye.
During Gather scrap metal for Balint using his metal detector
I'm in need of scrap metal from the canyons ahead so I can build a devourer attractor to rescue the captain from her fiery prison.
Talk give option tango.png Is this what you are looking for?
It is! Go get more, if you dare! I haven't got all day!
Talk end option tango.png You're welcome.
Talk more option tango.png And how does one get this scrap metal?
Take one of my metal detectors and examine the ground in the canyon. Watch out for devourers, though!
Talk more option tango.png Devourers?
They'll eat anything and hide anywhere. Once we've gathered enough, I can try and rescue the captain from the Flame Legion.
Talk more option tango.png Captain? same as "Captain?" below
Talk end option tango.png I'll do what I can.
Talk end option tango.png Can do.
Talk more option tango.png Captain?
Yeah, the Flame Legion got their hands on her and now she's trapped in a cage. If we can just take down their defenses we can save her.
Talk more option tango.png What was that about scrap metal? same as "And how does one get this scrap metal?"
Talk more option tango.png What defenses?
They've got a pair of effigies patrolling. If we can summon a giant devourer to take them down, the path will be clear.
Talk end option tango.png I'll see what I can do.
Talk end option tango.png Bye.
Talk end option tango.png Bye.
