When entering Hall of Ascension
Champion Branded Josso Essher: Thieves. I knew your kind would come again.
Champion Branded Josso Essher: You do not know the power you face. And now, it is too late!
Follower Kaidenna: Those crystal guardians must be the power source for the Forgotten's shield. We'll need to take them down fast!
Champion Branded Josso Essher: Your insolence is beyond measure! How dare you raise your hand against this holy place.
After killing all guardians
Champion Branded Josso Essher: Enough! I'll have to deal with you myself.
Event in progress
Champion Branded Josso Essher: You cannot begin to understand the power of this place. You will fall, and you will fail.
After killing Champion Branded Josso Essher
Champion Branded Josso Essher: Not...possible... I will return!
Event success
Follower Kaidenna: This is phenomenal! Not only do we have access to the Ascension Chamber, but the lower catacombs have been opened as well.
Follower Kaidenna: Seize the opportunity! Prepare for the Ascension. Keep up if you can!
