Niles is a Zephyrite requiring help with his flute near Dredgeways in the Thunderhead Peaks.


Shiverpeak Mountains


After talking to him, Niles will give you his Zephyrite Flute, replacing your skills with the following:

# Skill Activation time Recharge time Description
1 Note E.png Note E Play an E note on your Zephyrite flute.
2 Note G.png Note G Play a G note on your Zephyrite flute.
3 Note A.png Note A Play an A note on your Zephyrite flute.
4 Note B.png Note B Play a B note on your Zephyrite flute.
5 Note C.png Note C Play a C note on your Zephyrite flute.

To complete the challenge, you need to play a specific song for him, one of the ones listed below. Playing the notes, a red aura will appear around Niles or yourself if you play the wrong note. Niles will let you know you're on the right track if you play three correct notes in a row. You have to play one of the six Zephyrite Harmonizer songs, or another, seemingly random, song below. To determine which one, find the first note that does not produce a red aura, then consult the chart. This narrows the possible song down to typically two. To finally determine which exact song, if the next note produces a red aura then you have played the wrong song and must instead follow the second sequence that starts with the first note that did not produce a red aura. If no red aura shows then you have the right sequence and can simply complete the song, and thus the challenge.

Before completing the challenge
Talk more option tango.png You're a long way away from home. What are you doing here?
Meditating upon intangibles. Contemplating the infinite—oh, who am I kidding? I'm running away from my responsibilities.
Talk more option tango.png What responsibility would that be?
I'm supposed to assist with the resonance crystal ritual, but...
Talk more option tango.png But what?
I have doubts. I look around, and I see so much confidence, so much strength in the face of this calamity—and here I am, afraid of failing. Afraid I'm not good enough. There's so much riding on this.
Talk more option tango.png Nonsense. You're a Zephyrite. You can do this—and we need you.
But can I? The honest truth is, I'm terrible at this flute—and I can't fathom how anybody would entrust me with this responsibility. How can I possibly prepare for something like this?
Talk more option tango.png Practice, and trust in your comrades. Here—let me borrow the flute. (grants the Zephyrite Flute)
Talk end option tango.png We should talk later.
Talk end option tango.png Let's finish this later.
Talk end option tango.png Don't let me interrupt you, then.
Talk more option tango.png I know you're scared of the ritual. Allow me to help. (grants the Zephyrite Flute)
Talk end option tango.png I'll come back later.
Talking to him with the flute
Um—were you going to give me a demonstration, or...?
Talk end option tango.png Right. Here we go.
Leaving his vicinity with the flute
Hey, hold up—I need to keep that flute here with me. Thank you, and take care, Commander.
Talk end option tango.png Apologies. Of course.
After completing the first verse
You're amazing. Truly inspiring. Please, continue!
Talk end option tango.png Gladly.
After completing the challenge
Thanks for the encouragement, Commander. This is important...and I can't give up. Not now. I'll head back to the docks in a bit. Now if I can just remember where I put that practice crystal...
Talk end option tango.png Good luck.
