Event pre
Historian Vermoth: The statue's over by the altar, right over there.
Event start
Risen Priestess of Dwayna: Do you think you can defeat the power of a god and an Elder Dragon combined? (laugh)
Historian Vermoth: I don't think that priestess is going to let us near Dwayna's altar without a fight.
At full health
Risen Priestess of Dwayna: The power of the goddess flows through me. You shall die!
At 75% health
Risen Priestess of Dwayna: Pray for your life, fool!
At 50% health
Risen Priestess of Dwayna: Dwayna will show you mercy—by ending your wretched life.
At 25% health
Risen Priestess of Dwayna: Dwayna and Zhaitan chose me! I cannot die...
Event success
Historian Vermoth: The way to the altar is clear!
When Historian Vermoth approaches the altar
Historian Vermoth: There's some kind of energy field surrounding the altar. I can't get through.
A misty figure arises from the altar
Historian Vermoth: A ghost! Stand back!


The event chain will stop progressing indefinitely if Historian Vermoth's health depletes from the remaining Risen attacks after defeating the Risen Priestess of Dwayna. Although Historian Vermoth's health slowly recovers, players must ensure any Risen on Historian Vermoth is killed before taking down the Risen Priestess of Dwayna.
During the fight with the Risen Priestess of Dwayna, Historian Vermoth's health may never drop below a certain point and regenerate very quickly, effectively making him immortal. This does not seem to have any effect on event progression.
  • There's no need to kill all of the Veteran Risen because the Risen Priestess of Dwayna will just periodically resurrect them.
  • If you're having difficulty with this event it's recommended to continuously kill Veteran Risen Acolytes as the minions they summon can quickly overwhelm smaller groups of players.
  • You can lure the veterans away from the Risen Priestess of Dwayna to prevent resurrection.
