Skimmer Trainer Ardra

Save our skimmers!


Commander,

A disgruntled ex-employee, Sibaha, recently made off with several of our ranch's prized creatures.

I've never agreed with her methods—she takes too many risks, and frankly, the shrinking demand has resulted in rising costs and dwindling skimmer populations. We just can't breed them like we used to. And I certainly can't afford to let her take a chunk of my remaining stock.

Please help us find our skimmers. Our livelihoods depend on it!

Find me at Skimmer Ranch here in Elon Riverlands.

—Trainer Ardra

Dialogue[edit]

In Elon Riverlands
Skimmer Trainer Ardra: You here to work? The ranch is running pretty well, but we can always use another strong set of hands.
Talk more option tango.png I’m here about the stolen skimmers. What can you tell me?
Thank you, Commander. Please, I need those skimmer back. Sibaha’s selfish act of thievery is unconscionable!
Talk more option tango.png Why would she steal from the ranch?
She was always experimenting without my permission, risking the lives of a species that’s nearly endangered already. Strange diets, unproven methods, odd training techniques...
Talk more option tango.png So you fired her. Any idea where she went?
Yes. I had to protect my investment. And this was her retaliation. I don’t know where she went, but to get far, she’d have to go to Amnoon Harbor for supplies first. Can you track her down?
Talk end option tango.png I’ll do my best.
In Crystal Oasis
Dockmaster Jonnick: I’m a bit busy right now.
Talk more option tango.png I’m tracking a thief. Seen a woman with a pack of skimmers, goes by Sibaha?
Hard to miss! Haggled over supplies like a used-sloop trader, but handled those skimmers as if they were family. Seemed determined to reach Lion’s Arch on skimmerback, storms and currents be damned!
Talk more option tango.png Really?
Yep. Grilled me for all I know about reading winds, predicting currents, tracking tides. Lost me with dynamics-this and bio-that. Wanted to talk to experts everywhere about skimmers and...everything.
Talk more option tango.png Huh. So, she went to Lion’s Arch...
Well... Told her I met a charr near the Highland coast, all wild about skimmers like she is. Could see the gears turning behind her eyeballs. Maybe she went there first? Seen storms more predictable.
Talk end option tango.png Interesting. Thanks for the info.
In Desert Highlands
(If A Bug in the System is complete)
Kall: Commander? Good to see you. The Olmakhan heard there was an Inquest outpost here, figured I'd keep an eye on it. Can't seem to find it, though.
Talk more option tango.png There was. I dealt with it.
Oh, is that the one you blasted through to get to us? Good to hear. The fewer of them around, the safer we'll be.
Talk more option tango.png I'm tracking a thief. Seen a woman with a pack of skimmers? (same as below)
Talk end option tango.png Agreed.
Talk end option tango.png Good to see you, too.
(If A Bug in the System is not complete)
Make it quick. Not out here to chitchat. Just giving my skimmers a break.
Talk more option tango.png I don't see many charr out here... (if not charr)
And you won't be seeing me much longer, either. We'll be on our way soon enough.
Talk more option tango.png Where did you come from?
You don't appear to be working for the Inquest, so I'll tell you this much—I'm searching for some friends. That's all you're getting.
Talk end option tango.png Interesting.
Talk more option tango.png I don't see many other charr out here... (if charr, same as "I don't see many charr out here...")
Talk end option tango.png I leave you to it.
(If Finding Sibaha is active)
Talk more option tango.png I'm tracking a thief. Seen a woman with a pack of skimmers?
Sure, I remember her. Jonnick sent her my way. Knew her skimmers, that's for sure. At least, they sure acted like they were her skimmers.
Talk more option tango.png You're an expert, then. What did you talk about?
My people grow up with skimmers. She wanted to know my experiences. Tips on training, handling, breeding. Observations on how they float, how they breathe, how they interact with riders in situations.
Talk more option tango.png Hmm. Any idea where she is now?
Gotta admit I enjoyed talking to her. But I needed to focus. She asked me so many questions about air and water, I said, "You want to know about the elements, why don't you ask a djinn?"
Talk more option tango.png Really.
Yeah. It was a joke, but this Sibaha...seems she takes everything seriously. Said there's a famous djinn she could get some answers from. Set out west. Across the sea.
Talk end option tango.png A famous djinn out west? That could only mean...
In Lion's Arch
Miyani: Ah, you're the one Zommoros invited to tour the Mystic Forge. Or are you here to see what I've got for sale?
Talk more option tango.png I'm tracking a skimmer thief named Sibaha. Did she come here?
Oh, yes. Pretty bold. Walked right into the Mystic Forge, no appointment. Zommoros was taken aback, of course. She questioned him on a range of topics that he deemed "tedious scientific nonsense."
Talk more option tango.png How did he answer?
He told me he directed the "presumptuous, condescending human with an unhealthy skimmer obsession" to subject matter experts in Moshpoipoi in Frostgorge Sound. Quaggans.
Talk more option tango.png But... there are quaggans in Lion's Arch.
I pointed that out after Sibaha left. He said, "Yes, but Frostgorge is much farther away."
Talk end option tango.png Ah, I see. Well, thanks for the info.
Talk end option tango.png All right. Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png Maybe another time.
Alternatively, in the Mythwright Gambit
Zommoros: I promise, I'll explain, but not with that giant whatever-it-is threatening my forge!
Talk more option tango.pngCan we take a quick break to talk about Sibaha?
The presumptuous, condescending human with an unhealthy skimmer obsession whom I never want to see again? No.
Talk more option tango.png What?
She had the gall to just...show up! No appointment. No manners. Like I'm going to spend my valuable time discussing flying fish and tedious scientific nonsense.
Talk more option tango.pngOkay...
As though being able to control water makes me an expert in hydrodynamics or aerodynamics or geo, cryo, pyro... I don't know! So I sent her on a small journey to Moshpoipoi, to talk to quaggans instead.
Talk more option tango.png In Frostgorge Sound? But...there are quaggans in Lion's Arch.
Yes, but Frostgorge is much farther away.
Talk end option tango.pngI can't argue with that.
Talk end option tango.png All right. Good to know.
In Frostgorge Sound
Caretaker Laamaa: Hoo, welcome. So long as you don’t bother the hatchlings, you can stay.
Talk more option tango.png I’m tracking a skimmer thief. Sibaha. Seen her?
Thief? Hmm. Quaggan met woman by this name. But before quaggan will share, quaggan asks your help. Risen are coming. Soon. Keep them from hatchlings!
Talk end option tango.png I’ll defend Moshpoipoi.
Talk more option tango.png So about that skimmer thief...
Thank yoOOouUu. Skimmer woman came by here, yes. Woman did not seem thief. Quaggan spoke to her. Woman smart. Bold. Very interested in little ones, how quaggan teaches and trains. But...
Talk more option tango.png But?
Skimmer woman see largos. Largos not friendly like skimmer, quaggan warn. Largos scariest thing. But woman... excited by largos, and want to see.
Talk more option tango.png Did the largos... Is she...?
NooOOoo. Woman safe. Quaggan shares whispers of less scary largos in Whisper Bay. Largos that helps quaggan escape. Quaggan send skimmer woman there.
Talk end option tango.png Whisper Bay. In Orr. Not exactly “safe”...
In Malchor's Leap
Aaminah: Nothing exhilharates[sic] like tracking a worthy target.
Talk more option tango.png Have you seen a woman with a bunch of skimmers?
Help me on this hunt. Then, perhaps, I will share what I know of her.
Talk end option tango.png Got it.
Talk more option tango.png Maybe you could tell me about the woman? (Same as above until an event has been completed)
It's clear you're as singled-minded in your hunt as Sibaha was in hers. Before heading to Mount Maelstrom, she asked to observe my every movement. Intensely. Her notes were...intriguingly thorough.
Talk more option tango.png Mount Maelstrom! Why there?
She believed she learned all she needed. Pity the krait here are mad—she could've learned from them as well. So I mentioned that some of my fellows were hunting uncorrupted krait near Mount Maelstrom.
Talk end option tango.png And off she went. Of course. Well, Mount Maelstrom it is.
In Mount Maelstrom
Master Sdias: Don't worry, landwalker—you aren't my prey. Say what you will.
(If unlocked the eighth step in Finding Sibaha)
Talk more option tango.png Aaminah sent a human with some skimmers this way.
Ah, yes. We saw them swimming toward the krait fortress a day or so ago. Never saw her leave, however. Probably dead.
Talk end option tango.png Damn. Okay, thanks.
Sibaha: Hey! You. Let me out of here!
Talk more option tango.png Sibaha?
Um. Have we met?
Talk more option tango.png So, it's actually you?
Yes. I'm actually me. And I'd ask who you are, but I'm a lot more interested in whether you're here to get me out of this cage. One of the nearby krait should have a key. Can you help?
Talk end option tango.png On it.
Find a key yet?
Talk more option tango.png Yes. Here.
Talk end option tango.png Hold on a moment.
Thank you. Impressive work, dealing with those krait. Turns out they were a waste of my time. Nowhere near as informative as observing Aaminah.
Talk more option tango.png You have no idea how hard I had to look for you. Ardra wants her skimmers.
I suppose she told you I stole them. And, well, that's technically accurate. But it's not what it looks like. And I'll prove it.
Talk more option tango.png Good idea. Because it looks like you're a thief.
It's not about me. I want the skimmers to THRIVE. The knowledge I've gained, the experts I've consulted, the training techniques I've implemented... Meet me in Lion's Arch at my new camp. You'll see.
Talk more option tango.png If I don't, I'm taking those skimmers with me.
I promise you, it'll all make sense when you see the skimmers in Lion's Arch.
Talk end option tango.png Sure. In Lion's Arch then.
Talk end option tango.png It better, or there'll be consequences.
In Lion's Arch
Sibaha: Ah. Glad to see you made it.
Talk more option tango.png All right, what's this all about?
Lionguard let me set up on th beach here...it's not much...yet. Once people see what the skimmers can do, I've no doubt we'll be able to upgrade the facilities and ensure skimmers are never endangered.
Talk more option tango.png Enough hinting. What CAN they do?
You may ask too many questions. Hop on one. Find out. See if you can earn silver on the course. Then you'll understand.
Talk end option tango.png I don't have time for this.
Earn at least silver on my little training course here, and I'll believe you have learned what you need to.
Talk ready option.png All right, let's go.
Talk more option tango.png So you put this all together from the people you met?
I had seveal theories on helping the skimmers. Ardra never listened. Jonnick, Kall, Laamaa... even Zommoros... their information nudged me in the right direction. And once I saw Aaminah in the water...
Talk more option tango.png She seemed...intrigued by your attention.
She was incredible. Scientifically speaking. Even now I continue to refer to my notes on her. They're extensive. I should visit her again. She...
Talk more option tango.png Fascinating. For you. But what about Ardra's skimmers?
It's always about the bottom line with her. Not only will I compensate her, but she stands to gain quite a bit given that the demand for skimmers is about to skyrocket.
Talk more option tango.png You did steal from her...
I'll pay, but I won't apologize! If I hadn't "stolen" them, Ardra would be hoarding the last of a dying species, all for fear of "risking her investment." I wasn't going to let that happen!
Talk end option tango.png I hope it works out.
Talk end option tango.png I'll leave you to your notes.
Talk end option tango.png I see.
Talk end option tango.png Fair enough.
Hey, impressive. You're a quick study. And now that you've seen how my skimmers move, you should be able to teach your own with a bit of effort.
Talk end option tango.png Nice.
In Elon Riverlands after completing the collection
Skimmer Trainer Ardra: Thanks for helping out at the camp. There's always more than enough work to do, so come back whenever you feel like spending some time with skimmers. Which should be always!
Talk more option tango.png I found the skimmers. And Sibaha.
So where are they?
Talk more option tango.png She's training them to swim at her own camp in Lion's Arch.
Swim? With a rider? Those are my... She had no right...! Hmm...but it WOULD increase their value and help pay for ranching expenses. I'll have to remind her where she got those skimmers!
Talk end option tango.png I'm sure you can work something out.
Talk end option tango.png Glad I could be of help.

Notes[edit]

  • Only a character that has completed the Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire story will receive Ardra's letter. If the letter wasn't sent, the player can talk to Ardra to receive the achievement (works only on a character who has completed Path of Fire story).
  • If you have changed your keybinds (specifically 'C'), the instructions for diving with your skimmer may be inaccurate. You can map the key to dive with your skimmer by going to Options > Controls and looking for Mount Ability 2.
The event chain of Aaminah can stall after completing Event shield (tango icon).png Help the Kahloipoi guards rescue Aaminah (79). The quaggans and Aaminah will not return to Kahloipoi. Additionally, once returned, Aaminah will be unable to be interacted with.
