Ambient dialogue[edit]

Whispers Agent: So I've seen the walking mushrooms. What do you think they are?
Whispers Agent: One attacked me as I walked by. I didn't even know it was there!
Whispers Keeper: I wonder what would happen if you accidentally got a piece of them in your mouth as you fought.
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...
