Wizard's Ascent
There is much to be done, but I will assist as much as I am able. Now, how can I help?
Talk more option tango.png Who built the beacons?
Mabon: The Wizard's CourtIsgarren, mainly—predates nearly everything else in Tyria, and the beacons are older still.
Mabon: Perhaps only he knows their origin, and perhaps not even him. But they serve their purpose well, regardless.
Talk more option tango.png Do you ever regret joining the wizards?
Mabon: No, I don't. Our work is important, and I've been able to do a lot of good. It's where I belong. My purpose.
Mabon: No one lives to my age without accumulating a long list of mistakes. Before I came here, I was callous and...violent.
Mabon: The truth is, joining the ward might be the only good decision I ever made.
Talk more option tango.png How do you feel about the other mursaat?
Mabon: In truth, I have few memories of my time with my brethren before joining the Astral Ward—a kindness I likely don't deserve.
Mabon: But I have watched events unfold. I've seen our story played out across Tyria.
Mabon: My people chose the wrong path, and when given chances to undo their damage, continued farther down that same road...
Mabon: If there are enough of us left, I hope someday they'll find a better future. But it's our fault things are this way.
Talk more option tango.png Do you think these experiments were justified?
Mabon: I do. I didn't always, truth be told, but I've seen the good that's come of them.
Mabon: You have to understand, there are things we've prevented because of them that Tyria knows nothing about.
Mabon: Everything we do comes at a price, but if what we gain in return is the safety of our world, then we must pay that cost.
Mabon: Hopefully, someday, they will no longer be necessary. If we're lucky, maybe even someday soon.
Talk end option tango.png I'm fine for right now.
In Southern Wizard's Tower after completing Purge Lyhr's corruption
You've done well here, <Character name>—better than I could have hoped. Now, is there anything I can help you with?
Talk more option tango.png So if the key only partly worked, what do we do now?
Mabon: We will need to find additional solutions, it seems. But things are in motion, and there is value in that.
Mabon: For now, we should enjoy this victory; we're only given so many of these, after all.
Talk more option tango.png Do you feel guilty about having to remove memories?
Mabon: Of course. We pay a heavy cost to join the order, and that mantle weighs heavy on my shoulders, even after all this time.
Mabon: But if we are going to make decisions for all of Tyria, we must be free of entanglements with it.
Mabon: No one joins the court without understanding that, though. I'm proud of each of them. Their sacrifice is not lost on me.
Talk more option tango.png After all this, I bet you could use a vacation.
Mabon: Maybe so. I'll admit, there's been little time for rest around here as of late.
Mabon: But when I see the strength of my fellows on the court, the courage of the ward...I know this is where I belong.
Mabon: The truth is, even in these dark times...there's nowhere I'd rather be.
Talk end option tango.png I'll ask later.
Skyward Marches
I found Lyhr, and he's in stasis now, but the situation is dire.
Forging the key made him vulnerable to a deep corruption, and it's wound its tendrils around him.
I'll try to untangle it from him, but I can't do it alone. Please, help me save my friend.

  • The name Mabon originates in Welsh mythology likely before the 13th century. Mabon was the son of the Earth Mother Goddess Modron. In the 1960s, Mabon was adopted by pagan groups (specifically Alexandrian Wicca) as the name of the celebration of the autumnal equinox, one of the minor annual Sabbats.
