Notes[edit]

  • Picking the rune that accurately describes the NPC's profession will grant the player progress towards the heart and one minute of Protection.
  • Choosing the wrong rune will grant slightly less progress and cause one of the following:
    • Spawn two imps that you must defeat.
    • Afflict the player with 35 seconds of poisoned.
  • The Priory Scholar standing next to the headstone will cheer for the player if choosing the correct rune, or laugh at the player if choosing the wrong one.
