Speak to Forgal upon entering, then proceed to the nearby camp. You will fight Charr Renegades in groups of 2-3, most spawning after Forgal burns their tents down.

The final tent will contain Pyzor Ironmane, who will plant mines near you that detonate sometime later. Defeat him to complete the mission.





Ambient creatures


Talking to Forgal (cinematic):

Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Hey there, kid. Remember to bring your weapon?
<Character name>: I'm ready to fight...and don't call me "kid."
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Haha! Got some spark in you, eh, Recruit? Good to see. We'll need it if we're gonna stamp out these Renegades.
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Get ready to move, and keep your voice low. If we're lucky, we can catch these bootjacks sleeping.
<Character name>: You really think we'll be lucky?
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Kid, we both know that kind of luck doesn't exist.
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Still, try to take prisoners if you can. We'll need them to give us information if Anvilburn isn't there.
<Character name>: So we just run in there and yell, "Hello, bad guys, surrender or die"?
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Look here, whelp. There's a time for strategy, and there's a time for kicking the door down. We don't need tactics against this rabble. We just need force.
<Character name>: Yes sir, Warmaster.
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Right, then. Don't worry about "hello," just skip straight to "surrender or die." Now move out.

Talking to Forgal after the cinematic:

Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Keep your mind on task, Recruit. Duty first, questions after.
Talk end option tango.png Yes, Warmaster.

While Forgal is burning the renegade tents:

Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: By the Spirits, is this some kinda kiddie playground? Wake up out there!
Charr Renegade: It's the Vigil! Get 'em!
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Whoever trained you must be crying right now. You best run.
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: That's all you've got? Come on, you mangy runts!
Charr Renegade: I hate all you stand for.
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: You're the worst-trained, most cowardly loustabouts I've ever seen!

Fighting Pyzor Ironmane:

Pyzor Ironmane: Prepare to suffer!
Pyzor Ironmane: I yield! You fight well.

After defeating Pyzor Ironmane (cinematic):

Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: You shuck-brained cur! Where's Ajax Anvilburn? We know he's behind the attack on Ebonhawke. Spill!
Pyzor Ironmane: Y-you just missed him. He left this morning. He's on his way to kill some worthless human named Duran.
Pyzor Ironmane: They're settin' an ambush at Summit Peak. They'll kill Duran, then leave the bloody knife with ol' Steelcrusher. We're killing two peace-lovers with one trap!
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Ashes and snow, he means Minster Kent Duran, the Krytan ambassador. I bet Steelcrusher's the ambassador for the High Legions.
Pyzor Ironmane: You're Vigil, aren't you? Ha! Ajax'll be sorry he missed killing you. Tell his human-loving mother, Almorra, that one day we'll spit on her grave!
<Character name>: Almorra is Ajax's mother?
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: That's above your pay grade, Recruit. Forget you heard about it.
<Character name>: Forget? I can't just forget! Don't you think that's important?
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Whatever happened to discipline? Kids these days... All right, fine! But not here, and not now.
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: We'll talk about it later. Right now we have to evac before more Renegades show up.
Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: Leave this coward to rot and die alone. Let's get back to Ebonhawke and warn Samuelsson about Ajax's plan.

Talking to Pyzor after defeating him:

Pyzor Ironmane: Don't kill me! I'll change my ways. I'll go back to the Legions. You won't see me again!
Talk more option tango.png What do you renegades want, anyway? Why are you doing this?
We want the treaty to fail! Peace between charr and humans? It's ridic—er, an interesting idea. Can you get that weapon out of my face?
Talk back option tango.png Don't make me use this.
Talk combat option tango.png And let you rejoin Ajax's crew? I don't trust you. Sorry. This is your last breath.
Talk end option tango.png Get out of here, cur. I won't kill you.

If you choose to kill Pyzor:

Pyzor Ironmane: Attaaaaaack!

Speaking with Forgal:

Warmaster Forgal Kernsson: This isn't the time or place to discuss it, but yes, Ajax is Almorra's son. She's aware of the complication, and the mission is still "go."
Talk quest option tango.png So what's next?
We need to warn the delegation at Summit Peak that Ajax and his renegades are planning an attack.
Talk quest option tango.png Let's do it.
I'll send a message to Samuelsson. In the meantime, let's head to Summit Peak.
Talk end option tango.png Okay.
Talk more option tango.png Almorra's continuing the mission? She realizes that we might have to kill him?
Yes. If Ajax's actions threaten Tyria, then Ajax must fall. We all have to make sacrifices.
Talk more option tango.png If Ajax is her son, why doesn't Almorra just tell him to back off?
Ajax was raised in a fahrar, not by his mother. They barely know each other.
Talk more option tango.png Almorra's continuing the mission? She realizes that we might have to kill him?
Same as above
Talk quest option tango.png I understand. I don't envy Almorra, but I respect her decision. So what's next?
Same as "So what's next?"
Talk quest option tango.png So what's next?
Talk end option tango.png Hold on, I need to do something.

My story[edit]

Killer Instinct.jpg

I found out that the renegades plan to assassinate Minister Kent Duran, of Kryta. I also found out that the renegade leader, Ajax, is Almorra's son. It must have been difficult for her to put Tyria's well being before that of her flesh-and-blood.

My story


  • If you feel in an evil mood you can continue the fight with Pyzor and kill him. Nothing else happens after killing him.
