Jump to: navigation, search

Magister Ela Makkay is a high ranking member of the Durmand Priory. She has a wide focus of study, particularly with covering recent events, and quickly rose in ranks throughout 1326 and 1327 AE. Her study focused on krait culture, though also includes Duke Barradin, Scarlet's Alliance's attacks, and currently teaches classes in the Durmand Priory.

Ela Makkay was first met as a Field Reporter. When the Molten Alliance attacked, she was stationed in Hoelbrak in order to document the stories of the refugees. Later, when the Zephyrites arrived in Tyria, she went to Labyrinthine Cliffs while the Zephyr Sanctum was docked to observe and research the Zephyrites. She was then sent, as a Scholar, to aid in the investigation of the Toxic Alliance and its activity at Viathan Lake in Kessex Hills. When Scarlet Briar's Alliance attacked Lion's Arch, she was sent as the reporter of the 14th Lionguard Security Force's advancements during the Battle for Lion's Arch.[1] She was then sent back to Labyinthine Cliffs after the Zephyrites returned to aid Lion's Arch. After this, she was promoted to the rank of Magister.

With an Unidentified Lodestone in your inventory
You found one! I'd heard rumors of lodestones like that popping up. May I study it?
Talk give option tango.png
Here you go.
Thank you. Now, where did this come from?
(If obtained from a branded, destroyer, icebrood, mordrem or risen)
Talk more option tango.png
I found it after defeating a dragon minion.
This came from a dragon minion? Very interesting...
Talk more option tango.png
How so?
There have been reports of unusual ley-line surges. We don't know what they mean, but dragon minions are drawn to them. It may be connected to the stone you brought me.

Can you show me where? (World map opens)

After handing her the Unidentified Lodestone
Hello, <Character name>. I've been busy documenting Scarlet's War for the Durmand priory. Care to hear some history?

5/31/16 Update
Great! You've made it. (Said once. Skipped on all subsequent conversations.)
Talk more option tango.png
What news do you have?
That stone you found, I've never seen a melding of magic energies like that before. Ley-line magic appears to have changed the very nature of what it once was.
Talk more option tango.png
What should we do now?
We need more energy samples from the source, but we need to be cautious. The Priory isn't alone in wanting this energy.
Talk more option tango.png
What do you mean?
Somehow the Consortium created a device to capture larger amounts of ley energy. For a hefty sum, we were able to procure one for our research, but rumor has it the Inquest have also stolen one.
Talk more option tango.png
How can I help?
A field team has been sent to Blazeridge Steppes to try to collect as much ley energy as possible. You should go help. I'm sure they could use the support.
Talk quest choice tango.png
Show me. (World map opens)
The Inquest is trying to capture ley-line energy and that can't be allowed to happen. Priory teams will attempt to capture it as soon as there is a major leak of ley energy.
Energy leaks have been reported near here... (Circles waypoint at Deserter Flats)
...here... (Circles waypoint at The Last Whiskey Bar)
...and here. (Circles waypoint at Soot Road)
Talk more option tango.png
What about the other surges of energy?
There's been more ley-line activity in Mount Maelstrom and Snowden Drifts. We don't have the resources to send teams there yet, but it is still worth your time.
Talk quest choice tango.png
Show me what's happening in Blazeridge Steppes. (World map opens)
There's been a surge of energy throughout the ley-lines. Various dragon minions have been reacting to it...hungrily.

6/28/16 Update, first interaction
I'm glad you're here! We've made an astonishing breakthrough.
Talk more option tango.png
What is it?
We were able to attune the lodestone you gave me, and it is now capable of locating large concentrations of ley energy.
Talk more option tango.png
That sounds interesting.
We've event been able to recreate it! Here, you can have your stone back. Come talk to me if you ever need another one.
Talk more option tango.png
That's great, but what does it do?
The stone will vibrate in the direction of accumulations of energy when they occur. You can also use it to take a reading any time.

I'd like an extra.

In Labyrinthine Cliffs
Commander! It's great to see you again, and that you're taking some time for yourself. It's important to relax once in a while, especially for someone in your position.
Talk more option tango.png
Magister! What brings you back to the Labyrinthine Cliffs?
Please, call me Ela. I'm off duty. As for why I'm here, this place holds a special place in my heart, as do the Zephyrites who first brought me here. It felt important to share in the festivities.
Talk end option tango.png
I can appreciate that. Enjoy the festival, Ela.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll take a moment where I can. Enjoy yourself, Magister.
