Ambient dialogue[edit]

Female human Whispers Agent: "So I've seen the walking mushrooms. What do you think they are?"
Female human Whispers Agent: "One attacked me as I walked by. I didn't even know it was there!"
Male asura Whispers Keeper: "I wonder what would happen if you accidentally got a piece of them in your mouth as you fought."
Male asura Whispers Keeper: "Would it taste terrible? Poison you? Make the walls breathe? I wonder..."
If Help Sage Zende defeat the colossal Mordrem thrasher and power up the pylon event has just finished
Scholar Keenwit: "You won't believe it! We summoned a druid. And it restored the healing powers of the Maguuma waters!"
Arcanist Mariette: "Don't pull my leg. I don't have time for nonsense."
Scholar Keenwit: "By iron, I'm not. It happened. I'm going back to purify the springs. The waters strengthen any who bathe in it."
Scholar Keenwit: "I can rig up some purifiers. Once the springs are cleansed, the water will flow to Tarir and help their defenders."
Scholar Keenwit: "All right, but only because you're working with the commander."
Scholar Keenwit: "Just move this and hook that up. And what do you know? Another purifier."
Scholar Keenwit: "Adelia, I hope you're safe, wherever you are."
Scholar Keenwit: "The druid said there was an imbalance. I wonder..."
