In home instance
<Character profession> <Character name>, it's an honor to meet you. Let me be brief: I have a design to detect and forecast the portal attacks, but I need more raw material to construct it. (first conversation)
To complete a working prototype, I'll need 50 mithril ingots, 3 charged quartz crystals, a resonance tuner, an etheric tank, and a gate alchemeter.
Talk more option tango.png
I have everything you need. (with all the materials)
Talk Merchant.png
I've got everything—here you go. (with all the materials, alternative)
Excellent, I knew you'd be able to handle it quickly. Now it's my turn—I'll have this assembled and calibrated within a day.
Dignity
I know my way around machinery. Let me help. (If player is an Engineer, asura, or charr with an Iron Legion background)[verification requested]
Oh? Oh! Of course, let me show you the design. The premise is to use the resonance tuner to...
Talk more option tango.png
(Listen carefully to Ninn's plan.)
I'll start the alchemeter sequencing go ahead and start slotting the other components into the chassis...
Talk more option tango.png
(Continue working on Ninn's design.)
Connect the dampening wires, check for ether routing... Are you seeing a reaction on the tuner?
Talk end option tango.png
Just a finishing touch here, and...
Work's complete! I've sent the plans to the Peacemakers for mass production. The original is all yours.
Talk end option tango.png
Good job. This is going to save lives.
Talk more option tango.png
I have some questions I'd like to ask you. (same as below)
Talk end option tango.png
I'll get out of your way and check back later.
Talk more option tango.png
Start work immediately, then. I'll get you what you need.
To complete a working prototype, I'll need 50 mithril ingots, 3 charged quartz crystals, a resonance tuner, an etheric tank, and a gate alchemeter.
Talk more option tango.png
Where can I find those?
What are you looking for information on?
Talk more option tango.png
Mithril ingots.
Mithril is an abundant metal, though most common outside of civilized areas. Many crafters can refine it into bars.
Talk more option tango.png
Noted. I had another item I was wondering about... (returns to "What are you looking for information on?")
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks. I'll see what I can do.
Talk more option tango.png
Charged quartz crystals.
Quartz crystal itself is an uncommon material once only available from the Zephyrites. Now it's traded in many markets. Once you have a lot of it, it can be charged at any magically dense location.
Talk more option tango.png
Noted. I had another item I was wondering about... (returns to "What are you looking for information on?")
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks. I'll see what I can do.
Talk more option tango.png
A resonance tuner.
Ulta Metamagicals in Brisban Wildlands was running a series of portal experiments. They should have several backups. Talk to Coordinator Glaxx.

Noted. I had another item I was wondering about... (returns to "What are you looking for information on?")
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks. I'll see what I can do.
Talk more option tango.png
An etheric tank.
Portalist Danka at Valance Tutory in Timberline Falls runs a shop selling excess experimental devices. It'll probably come at a cost, but she should have one.
Talk more option tango.png
Noted. I had another item I was wondering about... (returns to "What are you looking for information on?")
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks. I'll see what I can do.
Talk more option tango.png
A gate alchemeter.
It's an older part. Visit Gate Operator Stebben in Ebonhawke. They use similar devices there. Just don't tell him I sent you.
Talk more option tango.png
Noted. I had another item I was wondering about... (returns to "What are you looking for information on?")
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks. I'll see what I can do.
Talk end option tango.png
I should be ready now.
Talk more option tango.png
I have some questions I'd like to ask you. (same as below)
Talk end option tango.png
I'm on it.
Talk more option tango.png
I have some questions I'd like to ask you.
Umm, sure. What did you need to know?
Talk more option tango.png
I destroyed the Inquest's portal hub. How are the Awakened still attacking? (if completed Daybreak story)
The Inquest's devices are like a series-3 thermal sink: you need a backup for when the first one detonates. The attacks did cease for a while though. You must have hampered them significantly.
Talk more option tango.png
Interesting. I had another question. (returns to "Umm, sure. What did you need to know?")
Talk end option tango.png
I'm going to break as many of their toys as it takes.
Talk more option tango.png
These portals seem new. How do they work?
Well, long-range variable-exit portals aren't entirely new. The tech has existed for a few hundred years, but there were documented issues keeping it out of common use.
Talk more option tango.png
What sorts of issues?
Transporting anything organic has a high rate of grisly accidents without at least an endpoint beacon. The higher the distance, the worse those issues become.
Talk more option tango.png
I haven't seen beacons or "accidents" with these portals.
Yes, they seem to have made a breakthrough. Maybe Awakened physiology plays a role, but that's challenged by reports of living beings traversing the portals.
Talk more option tango.png
Interesting. I had another question. (returns to "Umm, sure. What did you need to know?")
Talk end option tango.png
Let's worry about that later and deal with the attacks for now.
Talk end option tango.png
That sounds unpleasant. Let's not talk about that now.
Talk end option tango.png
This is sounding academic. Let's move on.
Talk more option tango.png
How do you know so much about the portals?
My domain of expertise is post-surface_era
[sic]
technology. Did you know that variable-exit portals were developed to deploy golems in the fight against the destroyers?
Talk more option tango.png
Why isn't it more widespread if it's that old? (same as "Transporting anything organic...")
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the history lesson.
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me about yourself.
Well, I'm with the Peacemakers who guard Rata Sum and the surrounding regions. I work on golem deployment, mostly.
Talk more option tango.png
Right, I saw you in the field with older type golems.
Don't underestimate the early-series golems. When our forebears moved to the surface, it was those golems that held off the destroyers and built our cities.
Talk more option tango.png
Interesting. I had another question.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm surprised golems that old are still in service.
Talk more option tango.png
What college did you attend? (asura only)
College of Statics, of course. I'd rather work with the golems than try to find loopholes in the laws of physics.
Talk end option tango.png
Always good to meet a fellow Statics member. Your work's appreciated. (If a member of the College of Statics)
Talk end option tango.png
Hmm, I suspected that. (if a member of the College of Dynamics or the College of Synergetics)
Talk more option tango.png
Interesting. I had another question.
Talk end option tango.png
Good to know, thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
Never mind.
Talk end option tango.png
I don't have time to run your errands.
After obtaining the Phasic Distortion Reader
Thank you for your aid again, <character profession> <Character name>. The Peacemakers will keep holding the line until this crisis is over.
Talk more option tango.png
I have some questions I'd like to ask you. (same as above)
Talk end option tango.png
I'll help where I can. And soon, I'm going to cut this off at the source.

Awakened Invasions


I'm sure you're aware of the recent Awakened attacks near large cities in Tyria. I have a plan to track their portal aperture positions to allow Peacemakers to intercept them more easily, but I need assistance. Please meet me at your home at your earliest convenience.
