(Before initiating conversation, she'll state one of the following)
Bian: You do realize you're staring at me.
Bian: So you're the mainlander everyone's talking about?
Bian: I would kill for some sunfish nigiri. Do you know how hard that is to find?
Bian: Hey, if you run into my minister, make sure you tell her that you love the railingwork in the temple.
Bian: So, what's your favorite part of Cantha so far? The elegant, organized districts? You don't need to say it. I know.
Bian: Shing Jea's a bit rough these days with those sky bandits out there. They're a real safety hazard.
Bian: You mainlanders sure make some interesting fashion choices. Pull them off, though. Mostly.
Uh, hi. I'm a little busy. Ministry of Urban Planning business. Do you need something...?
Talk more option tango.png What kind of business?
Bian: You're looking at the top zoning inspector in all of Shing Jea.
Bian: We do important work at the MUP. Without us, you'd have fish markets in the residential zones and jade factories in the commercial zones.
Bian: Complete. Chaos. So yeah, I know Shing Jea like the back of my hand.
Talk more option tango.png A Ministry agent, huh? Do you work with Li?
Bian: Oh, gods no.
Bian: I work for an entirely different ministry.
Bian: If you need to know one thing about Cantha, it's that we have a lot of ministries. Urban Planning, Culture, Archives, Security...
(If the Bian's World Tour achievement hasn't been started yet)
Talk more option tango.png Have you ever seen Tyrian architecture?
Bian: Central Tyrian architecture? I mean I've read about it...but...
Bian: Oh. Oh, wow. Now that the borders are open, I could actually see it.
Bian: Gods, there's a whole universe of urban planning out there. Thousands of permutations and regulations I don't know yet!
Bian: I guess I'll finally use my vacation time. Or maybe I can get it written off as an educational expense...
Bian: All right. It's settled. MUP can go without me for a few days. What's the worst that can happen?
Bian: They better not let Nguyen force through that water park.
(After completion of the Bian's World Tour achievement)
Talk more option tango.png So, how was your trip?
Bian: It was fascinating. Turns out people have vastly different ideas of what "planning" looks like.
(If asura)
Bian: I can tell you all are very proud of your technology — if not especially practical with it.
(If charr)
Bian: I mean, hey, if throwing a bunch of scrap metal in a pile and calling it a city works for you, it works for you.
(If human)
Bian: Divinity's Reach has some nice gardens. Of all the places I got lost in that city, they were the most pleasant.
(If norn)
Bian: I take it you norn are resistant to cold or something? Changes a few variables. Also explains the rampant bare midriff.
(If sylvari)
Bian: I'm all for "green" architecture, but I still don't get the logistics. Do you have to water your houses?
Bian: I'm glad I went. A lot of it took me by surprise, but that means I learned a lot, too.
Bian: Less glad about the water park that was approved in my absence. But that's why I do what I do.
Talk end option tango.png Right. I'll let you keep at it.
In Shing Jea Monastery courtyard
Bian: Look at that! MUP at work.
Outside the monastery
Bian: This is an unauthorized balcony extension.
Above the training grounds
Bian: A tripletail temaki sounds really good right now.
Within the training grounds
Bian: That fence is not regulation height. I'll have to write it up…
At the obstacle course
Bian: What in the... The safety violations here are innumerable! Who approved this obstacle course?

Black Citadel[edit]

Bian: I can't even count the hazards here. This place is tetanus central.

Divinity's Reach[edit]

Bian: Who approved this? This layout makes no sense.


Bian: Nice use of open space. But not exactly an efficient heating system.

Lion's Arch[edit]

Bian: Nice use of concrete, I guess. Nothing on Kaineng, though.

Rata Sum[edit]

Bian: So this whole place is floating. What happens if the power gives out?

The Grove[edit]

Bian: Did they really just… grow their city?
