A Small Favor

Wayfinder, hello.

I am sorry to ask more of you, but if you've some time one of my reports from the Bastion of the Natural has passed along troubling news of missing Astral Ward. She could use your knowledge of the battlefield to locate them. If there's any chance of returning them to safety alive, we should move quickly.

Her name is Hortensia, and she is likely working out of the refugee clinic in the Wizard's Tower.

Warden Assistant Hortensia

I... Apologies, I'm at a bit of a loss. Some of our wards are missing, or...worse. I've been able to find a few of their dog tags, but... Are you able to help? Is that too much to ask? My soldiers...

Talking to Vaulz Baelwalker

Talk end option tango.png Maybe later.
Warden Assistant Hortensia: Astral Ward. My friends...
Warden Assistant Hortensia: We all came to this place for a reason. Whether to escape the cruelty of the world or to find a purpose. To explore. Learn.
Warden Assistant Hortensia: Isgarren and...Mabon curated the best. We are family, and Amnytas is our home.
Warden Assistant Hortensia: Wayfinder, will you place the dog tags at the base of the memorial for me...?
Talk collection option.png Place Dog Tags (interact)
Warden Assistant Hortensia: We are all empathetic beings with similar goals: to understand what we don't already, and to protect Tyria.
Warden Assistant Hortensia: While this war against the Kryptis has yet to conclude, we gather to mourn. We gather to celebrate...
Warden Assistant Hortensia: Embla and Basil. Mabon, who guided us on our darkest days. So many have left us to be embraced by the swirling cosmos beyond.
Warden Assistant Hortensia: Let us be together for a few quiet moments, before we lift our swords again.
Warden Assistant Hortensia: Mabon would always tell us, "Think of your fondest memory," on especially dark days. Take a moment and do just that.
