[Group Event] Destroy the champion Risen lich (57)


We don't live in our parents' world anymore. With the rise of Orr, our futures became shaky. I wish I could promise an end to this war, but I don't know that it will happen in my lifetime.

You're Vigil, right? Tell me about that.
The Vigil is a powerful fellowship of individuals dedicated to defending the defenseless, freeing the oppressed, and raising the standards of goodness and charity.

How did the Vigil come to be?
Almorra Soulkeeper, our leader, created the order after she realized the charr legions couldn't or wouldn't serve a greater purpose. She wanted to cast her protective net wider. Her dedication to saving the world goes beyond a normal heroic quest. She's a true inspiration.

So, you think she's kinda okay, do you?
(laugh) You could say so. I saw her once, but have never spoken with her. She has a strategic mind greater than the most illustrious leaders throughout history. If we beat the dragons, it'll be because of her efforts.

What's your mission here?
We're spreading along the coast to keep Orrians at bay and halt their progress inland. This particular Vigil camp guards the western shore of the Ocean's Gullet. We patrol and attack any Orrians we encounter. Sometimes, they attack us too.

Keep up the good work.

I'm impressed. Good-bye.

A stirring description. Thanks.

I couldn't agree more. See you.
During Escort the Vigil to the Tower of Modius
We're taking explosives to the Tower of Modius. That lich is going up in smoke.
Talk end option tango.png
You've got your work cut out for you.
During Escort a Vigil bomb to the tower's weak point
That lich is halting our progress. We need to subdue it so we can get our offensive in place.

What can I do?
Cover this crusader. She's going to run a bomb up to the tower. Keep her safe. If her fingers get sweaty, she might drop the bomb, and that wouldn't be healthy for anyone.
Talk more option tango.png
We need a way to distract the lich and slow him down.
Try engaging him in direct combat. There's a ledge to the west that might lead up to the tower roof.
Talk end option tango.png
If there's a way, I'll get up there.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm on it.
(If first crusader failed)
Back up that Vigil crusader with the bomb. Keep him safe. I don't want a repeat of what happened to the first. We lose no more!
Talk more option tango.png
There must be a way to slow down the lich. (same as "We need a way to distract the lich and slow him down.")
Talk end option tango.png
I'll stick with the crusader like grit on a skritt.

We cannot afford fear in time's like these.
May Balthazar strengthen you.
Vigilance. Honor. Duty, Above all.
During Defend the Vigil camp
Everyone to arms! The enemy does not get inside!
Let's focus, people! This camp is ours, and we're not leaving!
Without their heads, undead are just dead! Aim for the neck!
Don't look 'em in the eyes! They feel no pain and think no thoughts!
What an ordeal. I tell myself that these poor Orrian souls can rest now.
But, it's small consolation for all the living souls we've lost while fighting them.
During Escort the Vigil to the Tower of Modius
So far so good. The pack bull is loaded. We're ready to go. Let's take this fight to the source.
Be careful with that cargo. One unlucky bounce, and we'll be a smoldering crater before we even get to the lich.
Don't let the undead near our cargo. If they jar it, it'll blow and kill us all!
If those undead bump the bull, we're done for! The explosives are too unstable.
For Dwayna's sake! Don't these undead ever give up?
I can't believe how much trouble one lich can stir up. If we can take him down, it'll be a real coup.
Hey! Nice and easy. Don't get that bull riled. I'm not ready to be a constellation just yet.
Put them all down! We need to get these explosives to the tower!
Buck up! We've got a wave of Orrians about to crash into us.
Before Escort a Vigil bomb to the tower's weak point
Commander Gresham: Let's take a moment and thank the gods that we made it in one piece.
Commander Gresham: All right. Now for the hard part. Get those bombs ready to go to the tower.
Commander Gresham: All right, you're up. Grab a bomb and head out to the tower. Try to set it at a weak spot!
Vigil Crusader: The undead cannot stand against the Vigil's forces. They're going down.
Commander Gresham: Right. Just don't drop that bomb, okay? That new recruit isn't ready to take your place.
During Destroy the champion Risen lich
Wait. Did you hear that?
Great gods! The lich isn't dead! Oh, this is bad.
Get ready, everyone! We're not done yet!
Upon success of Destroy the champion Risen lich
Next time, let's not cut it so close, okay? We should all be thankful we're alive.
Let's get back to camp. Vigil, follow me. We'll take an alternate route.
