Dialogue[edit]

At Balthazar's Reliquary
Ah, here's someone I can ask. I've been wondering why there are so many Abaddon statues around when my history text says they were purged.
Talk more option tango.png
A very good question. What do you think?
It is my belief that here, they are integral to the system and could not be purged without breaking down the magical network. What do you think?
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
Evidence indicates that this whole are
[sic]
was a sort of storage facility for the gods' history, relics, and mementos, not to mention their secrets.
Talk more option tango.png
You're making sense to me.
Although they hated Abaddon, they would not have cut off their own noses to spite their faces. They'd have wanted their valuables protected. Even by an Abaddon statue.
Talk end option tango.png
We may never know the gods' minds, but that's as good a guess as any.
Talk end option tango.png
I need to go. Good day to you.
At Grenth's Reliquary
What are these reliquaries?
Talk more option tango.png
The better question is what were they?
They're all destroyed except for Abaddon's. You should see if you can get into it. You never know what treasure you'll find.
Talk end option tango.png
That is my goal. Wish me luck.
Talk end option tango.png
I need to go. Good day to you.
At Lyssa's Reliquary
With an Oakheart near Balthazar's Vein:
Will we ever find out why the great beings that ruled here left Tyria? Or where they went? So many questions!
Talk more option tango.png
Part of me hopes so, but then I think of Balthazar...
He's back, isn't he? Word about that came to us when your ship arrived. I hear he may be causing trouble.
Talk end option tango.png
He hasn't been answering questions, that's for sure.
Talk end option tango.png
I need to go. Good day to you.
With a lone female Botanist at Secret Garden:
I'm going to name you Daffodil. You'll find good company here next to Blossom and Lily.
Talk more option tango.png
Keep listening in.
And don't you worry. One day you will all bloom into beautiful flora. Just make sure not to fight over the sunlight–there's plenty enough for everyone here.
Talk end option tango.png
Smile and leave.
Talk more option tango.png
Walk away.
With a male Botanist at Secret Garden:
It's hard to believe that this whole continent used to be submerged.
Talk more option tango.png
Well, it's not as hard when you've been to every part of it.
Yeah, but imagine what it could have been if the humans hadn't destroyed it. It must have been so beautiful back then.
Talk end option tango.png
Don't worry, we'll make it beautiful again. We just have to be patient.
Talk end option tango.png
Yep.
With a female Botanist at Secret Garden:
These plants are beautiful. It's amazing that they've been able to grow so rapidly under such harsh conditions.
Talk more option tango.png
They really are. I'm surprised they're here.
Right? My theory is that they're a crossbreed of hydrophytes and calcifuge plants.
Talk more option tango.png
Hydrophytes?
Oh, sorry. Hydrophytes are plants that grow primarily in water. Calcifuge plants grow in acidic soil.
Talk end option tango.png
Ahh, okay. Thanks for the quick lesson!
Talk end option tango.png
Uh, yeah. Hydrophytes. Makes sense...
Talk end option tango.png
Wish I had more time to stop and smell them. Bye now.
At Melandru's Reliquary
Male sylvari south of Watchman's Roost:
Why am I here? I don't know. Every day, I regret it.
Talk more option tango.png
Why did you come?
I was sold the idea of being a hero, of saving Orr. But no one told me it would smell this bad, that we'd have bad food and water, or that we wouldn't be able to get a good night's rest.
Talk end option tango.png
Welcome to heroism.
Talk end option tango.png
I need to go. Good day to you.
At Risen Lowlands
Male sylvari near Camp Reclamation Waypoint:
Oh, hi. Now that you're here, our project will garner attention from investors. We're cutting corners to make this expedition work.
Talk more option tango.png
Your sacrifices will be worth it.
The only investors we've found are asura who want to research here. We suspect they're planning a land grab. Once the undead are cleared out.
Talk more option tango.png
Whatever gives you that idea?
Their geographical surveys, maps of the landscape, and interest in relics and artifacts.
Talk end option tango.png
I see. Well, good day to you.
Talk end option tango.png
I see. Well, good day to you.
Female sylvari near Camp Reclamation Waypoint:
Commander, we've been trying to disintegrate the undead. When the dragon magic remains concentrated, the land doesn't heal.
Talk more option tango.png
Ley-line magic?
An interesting theory. Ley-line magic is Tyria's blood. It may have healing properties.
Talk end option tango.png
I need to go. Good day to you.
Talk end option tango.png
I need to go. Good day to you.
