Dialogue[edit]

Scholar Keenwit: I'm searching for the Font of Maguuma. Who's with me?
Arcanist Mariette: Whoa, hold it! You're going into the jungle alone? I didn't think so.
Scholar Keenwit: This is important, Mariette. I have to do this. I know how to find the Font of Maguuma!
Arcanist Mariette: And accomplish what? Your devotion to the druid myth is impressive, if impractical. We're surrounded by Mordrem.
Sage Zende: Allow me to accompany you. We can help each other.
Scholar Keenwit: I...uh...well, finally someone who understands! Come if you're coming. Time's wasting.
Arcanist Mariette: Fine. But you better make it back or you're fired.
Scholar Keenwit: I don't care what they say; this is worth it. No one's reported seeing the Font of Maguuma for, what, decades?
Scholar Keenwit: Mordrem wolves. A pack of trouble, if you ask me.
In-between translations
Scholar Keenwit: Hey! I can't translate with all this racket!
Scholar Keenwit: A little backup please! These druid markings won't translate themselves!
After finishing the first translations
Scholar Keenwit: This is old. Hundred of years old.
Sage Zende: The druids were gone long before the Exalted arrived. Only their legend remains.
Scholar Keenwit: It's Old Krytan, barely visible. It says, "Long ago, we shed our human forms and became spirit guardians of the jungle."
Scholar Keenwit: "Signal...us in times of crisis, and we will be there."
Sage Zende: No. I believe you mean "summon". Summon us. Summon us? They can be summoned?
Scholar Keenwit: The vine gates are gone. Betcha the watchpoint lighting up did that.
One of the following:
Scholar Keenwit: Spiders make my scruff itch.
Scholar Keenwit: If only they didn't drop down from above.
After finishing the second translations
Scholar Keenwit: I don't have the exact words but it says, "All that exists is all that has to be. By stations, scrub the water."
Scholar Keenwit: "If equilibrium is lost, our elder restores the font only when it is restored."
Sage Zende: It seems safe to say that equilibrium has been lost.
Scholar Keenwit: What if the journal's wrong? No, this has to be the way.
One of the following:
Scholar Keenwit: Really? More tendrils? All right, then. C'mon!
Scholar Keenwit: Obnoxious weeds
After finishing the third translations
Scholar Keenwit: I believe it says, "The Maguuma is the heart of Tyria. It must be maintained."
Scholar Keenwit: "I beseech you, future guardians of Maguuma. Heed these words."
Sage Zende: The markings are referring to...us.
Scholar Keenwit: Only in the vaguest possible way. But, by irons, I'll take their advice.
One of the following:
Scholar Keenwit: Hmm... Bet the mama thrasher is near.
Scholar Keenwit: Thrashers look edible when small, but they're deadly when fully grown.
After finishing the final translations
Scholar Keenwit: It says, "Face the source with...authentic heart and mind. Speak the words given and...merge with the waters."
Scholar Keenwit: Hey, I'm game! What about you?
Sage Zende: Your destination is just ahead. I will accompany you.
Scholar Keenwit: Careful there. Get too excited, and you might flake. Let's go.
Scholar Keenwit: Look. Pylons scattered everywhere.
Sage Zende: According to legend, these waters could heal.
Scholar Keenwit: Let's hope it's true. If so, this could turn the tide of this war.
Scholar Keenwit: Finally, the Font of Maguuma. (laughs) Wasn't sure I'd find it.
Scholar Keenwit: And look at that! There's the mama thrasher!
