Dialogue[edit]

Cragstead[edit]

In Cragstead
You've weathered dangerous roads to reach Cragstead, traveler. Are you here as sentry or visitor?
Talk more option tango.png Sentry? What do you mean?
Our village was nearly destroyed until the strength of heroes saved it. Those bereft of hope come here to stand sentry for one day and night, to revel in the Shiverpeaks, and to renew their spirits.
Talk more option tango.png I know what Cragstead endured. I fought alongside Braham.
Then...you're one of the heroes who saved these steaders. May the Spirits bless you! Your actions here have reached ears near and far and inspired many. Thank you for your bravery.
Talk end option tango.png No problem. It's what I do.
Talk more option tango.png Is that why you're here?
In a way. I'm a shaman of Owl, a Spirit many consider dead. It's my hope that by being in Cragstead, I might somehow revive her following. Maybe even Owl herself.
Talk end option tango.png Good luck.
Talk end option tango.png I'm just passing through.
Talk end option tango.png Just passing through.

During the Spiritual Renewal achievement[edit]

In the Eye of the North
Commander. I am Garon, shaman of Owl. Braham asked me here due to the unfortunate circumstances with Owl's reawakening. He seeks guidance, but I'm ashamed to say his faith has diminished.
(if norn)
Talk more option tango.pngThat is a daunting challenge.
Our people endured, and though we continue to struggle, to build our legends...what if the corruptions of the Spirits is inevitable? What would that mean for us? For me?
Talk more option tango.png We do what we've always done. We fight. For our home, our kin, ourselves.
Braham wasn't lying about your wisdom, and I'm not ready to give up. I've decided to set out on a spiritual pilgrimage to rekindle my faith. If you want to come, then meet me at her shrines.
Talk collection option.pngI'd be honored.
Talk end option tango.pngActually, let me get back to you.
(otherwise)
Talk more option tango.pngHow so?
I've lived through hard times, but never ones this cold. If Owl herself has been corrupted, what hope have we?
Talk more option tango.png We must remind ourselves what we're fighting for.

Talk end option tango.png Excuse me, I have something else to take care of.
In Snowden Drifts
Before honoring Owl
Shameful. Owl's Lodge is in shambles. Only one remaining Owl Spirit sits high upon her perch, looking down at these ruins. Please, help me bring this modest offering to her.
Talk collection option.png I'll take it for you.
After honoring Owl
Thank you. We can all learn something from Owl's resolve. Also, from yours. Perhaps you and Owl are alike in more ways than I realized.
Talk end option tango.png Giving does feel good. See you again, Shaman.[sic]
In Lornar's Pass
Before honoring Owl
I knew Owl's shrine wouldn't be as vibrant as in my memories of it, but I didn't expect it to have fallen to ruin. Please, restore harmony by banishing the hostile creatures that roam here.
Talk collection option.png I'll clear those creatures away from the shrine.
After honoring Owl
Because of you, Owl's legacy is no longer eclipsed by darkness. At least not here. My own spirit feels a bit more at peace as well.
Talk end option tango.png Small change has great value when compounded over time.
In Hoelbrak
Before honoring Owl
I'm relieved to see this shrine preserved in a robust state. I wonder, does it reflect the strength of belief of the people here? Speak with them and see what kind of faith they possess.
Talk collection option.png I'll speak with some of the adherents about this.
While honoring Owl
I'm relieved to see this shrine preserved in a robust state. I wonder, does it reflect the strength of the belief of the people here? Speak with them and see what kind of faith they possess.
Talk more option tango.png[sic] I'm still gathering information.
After honoring Owl
I'm relieved to see this shrine preserved in a robust state. I wonder, does it reflect the strength of the belief of the people here? Speak with them and see what kind of faith they possess.
Talk collection option.png I've spoken to all the adherents.
A flicker of faith still burns inside them. After all that's happened, they hold on to hope as if shielding a small flame from a terrible wind. I am inspired by their strength.
Talk end option tango.png Only time will tell, but it feels like the promise of a better future.
In Cragstead
Before honoring Owl
I hope that by starting with those closest to me, I can begin to rekindle some faith in Owl.
Talk collection option.png What can I do to help?
Gather my neighbors and bring them to Wolf's lodge. I will speak to them there, and they in turn will speak to their loved ones.
Talk collection option.png I'll be back shortly.
In Frostgorge Sound
Before honoring Owl
Though I'm no longer the warrior I once was, I aim to channel my doubts into something more productive. Bring me the heart of an elite icebrood.
Talk collection option.png I don't suppose those are just sitting around...
Go northwest of Elder's Vale. Start your search there.
Talk collection option.png I will.
After honoring Owl by obtaining an Icebrood Heart
I admire your courage. Before I can guide Braham in this spiritual matter, I must touch the Spirit myself. We must go to Drizzlewood Coast...to the place where Owl touches this world.
Talk end option tango.png I'll see you there.
In Drizzlewood Coast
Before honoring Owl
Owl is near; I sense corruption. No wonder Braham hesitated. I must subject myself to Owl's pain. Ready, Commander?
Talk collection option.png I'm ready.
(A cutscene plays which depicts Garon kneeling in the ritual circle before standing up with a glow surrounding him.)
After honoring Owl
For the first time in many years, I feel my beliefs awakened. I have enough to offer Braham the guidance he needs. Thank you. You've restored a piece of myself I'd thought lost forever.
Talk collection option.png Honored I could help.
