Priory Historian Elisa, the traveling historian, is a vendor found in different locations across the Crystal Desert, accompanied by her pet springer, Two-Step.

She changes her location each week, and the Bounty Hunter's armor recipe book she offers changes every day.

Locations[edit]

Historian Elisa is on the move every week, changing location every Friday 08:00. The player can double-click Ley-Infused Sand to check whether they are in the same map.

Dialogue[edit]

For her other dialogue, see: Priory Historian Elisa/Dialogue
Rats. I thought there was a way out here, so I fought through the destroyers—risking my life, of course—but this insufferable waterfall is right in the way! Oh, well. At least it's pretty.
Talk more option tango.png What are you doing down here?
Well, I'm a historian for the Priory, and we haven't had access to this region in quite a long time. There's a lot to see and document, and it's up to me to do it!
Talk more option tango.png So, you're just looking around and taking notes?
Thanks for making it sound so dull. But no, its not ALL I'm doing. I've also been collecting ley-infused sand. If you've gotten any from hunting bounties, I'll trade you for it.
Talk more option tango.png Ley-infused sand?
I want to study it. There's strange ley-ley activity around here, and prolonged exposure to it seems to change the stucture of the sand. There are also bits of other things I can't identify yet.
Talk merchant tango.png Let's Trade.
Talk end option tango.png I don't have any right now.
Talk more option tango.png Can anyone come up and use your fire?
Sure. Hang around all you like. Every hour or so, I light a special fire to give a boon to everyone around, if someone helps me gather the wood for it.
Talk back option tango.png What are you doing around here again?
Talk merchant tango.png Do you have anything to trade?
Talk end option tango.png Good to know.
Talk merchant tango.png Sure, I'll trade you.
Talk end option tango.png Not at the moment.
Talk more option tango.png Where do you think you'll be going next?
The Domain of Vabbi. Whenever I go there, I find something new and intriguing, but I have to steel myself every time.
Talk back option tango.png What are you doing around here again?
Talk merchant tango.png Do you have anything to trade?
Talk end option tango.png Maybe I'll see you there.
Talk merchant tango.png Do you have anything to trade?
Talk end option tango.png Well, good luck then.
Talk merchant tango.png Do you have anything to trade?
Talk end option tango.png Definitely. Good-bye.

Notes[edit]

  • Elisa's zone rotates in a repeating pattern every week of the year: Desert Highlands → Domain of Vabbi → Crystal Oasis → Elon Riverlands → The Desolation, with exception of the last two visits in the cycle, which are repeats to make a complete 52 week cycle with 50 locations (10 per map).
  • The book of bounty hunter recipes she offers is randomly determined each day and does not follow any particular order.
  • There is no limit to the number of books that can be purchased in a single day.
