In Hall of Monuments
Viewed through the Scrying Pool, many possibilities exist. Will you face the Twisted Marionette again with your allies?
Talk more option tango.png I'm ready to relive the battle. (Marionette—Private Squad)
Talk end option tango.png Not right now.
Inside the marionette instance
When your group is ready, have your leader speak with me. Until then, I will suspend the flow of this memory.
Talk more option tango.png My team is ready to defeat the Marionette. (starts the instance timer, the Mist Stranger soon disappears)
Talk end option tango.png I'll be back

During Halloween Bonus Bash[edit]

While the Halloween Bonus Bash special event is active
Welcome, <Character's specialization>. This world is in need of heroes your caliber. Prove yourself; reach level 10 and I will lend you a weapon to help forge your way.
Talk more option tango.png I've gained the strength required. (If level 10 or above)
Well done. I will grant you a selection of main-hand weapons appropriate for a <Character's specialization>, but only once. Be confident in your choice.
Talk more option tango.png Give me a <Character's profession> weapon.
Then take this, and may it guide your path. Pick your favorite of the weapons within.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png I've been thinking of trying other professions. Let me get back to you.
Talk more option tango.png How much time do I have?
I cannot linger here forever; once the event that spurred me to these lands ends, I must depart. Perhaps we will meet again one day. I recommend you take action.
Talk end option tango.png I'll get to it.
Talk end option tango.png I'll be back.
Allready received a weapon chest
Welcome again, <Character name>. I hope your journey will continue to bring hope to Tyria, as did the heroes of the past.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks for the encouragement.

Note: This is a one-time per account proposition

Historical dialogue[edit]

While the Wrath of the Twisted Marionette event is active
The waters of the scrying pool stir—the memory of the Twisted Marionette intrudes on Tyria's reality.
Talk more option tango.png Show me the achievements.
Talk more option tango.png "Intrudes on reality?"
The Mists are a sea of never-ending possibility. In another time line, the marionette may have prevailed. You cannot allow such an event to ever happen, therefore you must relive and relearn.
Talk more option tango.png Other than the joy of winning, what's in it for me?
If victorious in reliving that moment, you may recover stable salvage and trophies that you can extract. Should this crisis be resolved with your aid, I will also reward your efforts.
Talk end option tango.png I'll consider it.
Talk more option tango.png You seem to know a bit about the Mists.
Consider me a...warden of Tyria, not unlike you. I felt my guidance would be of aid. Who I am is no concern. At least for now.
Talk end option tango.png Huh.
Talk end option tango.png Always another crisis...
Talk end option tango.png Good-bye.
The ripples have subsided—the Twisted Marionette returns to a memory.
Talk end option tango.png May it remain there.
