Dialogue[edit]

Incomplete heart (map icon).png
Let me guess. You're here to help with this restoration, are you?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
Excuse me, but we're in the middle of an extensive recovery operation. If you're not going to help us find any treasure, stay out of the way.[verification requested]
Talk more option tango.png
Yes I am. How can I help?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
Good. My worthless explorers are starting to become wary of touching the treasure, but we need to gather it up! Find it and put it back into the treasure chests.
Talk more option tango.png
Why are the explorers afraid to touch the artifacts?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
It's just shally wonk murmurings. They go on and on about the curse. It's got them spooked over ghosts. It's completely irrational!
Talk more option tango.png
But I've seen ghosts. They're definitely real.
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
Of course they are! Who hasn't seen a ghost! Just deal with them, and I'll consider it a favor owed.
Talk end option tango.png
All right.
Talk end option tango.png
Shallywonk, indeed.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm on it.
Talk more option tango.png
Can you tell me what's going on here?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
We're trying to restore this treasure to its proper place, or at least find a way to cleanse it of the curse it carries.
Talk more option tango.png
The treasure is cursed?
Talk more option tango.png
Can you tell me about the curse?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
The souls of the pirates who stole this treasure seem to be haunting it and anyone who carries it. We must either seal it away or remove the curse.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask about something else?
Talk end option tango.png
Spooky.
Talk more option tango.png
How did the Durmand Priory get involved with this?
Talk more option tango.png
Why is Durmand Priory's involved in this matter?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
It's treasure. Which means every merchant and pirate in Lion's Arch is after it. It burdens the Lionguard, and we need their focus on other things.
Talk more option tango.png
What do you need the Lionguard to do?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
Fight the corporeal pirates, for starters. It's no good to have them roaming free about this region, interfering with our research.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask about something else?
Talk end option tango.png
I guess you'd better get back to it then.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask about something else?
Talk end option tango.png
That makes sense.
Talk more option tango.png
How would you remove the curse?
Talk more option tango.png
Is there any way to remove the curse from the treasure?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
My assistant Gillia has drafted some sort of ritual that must take place at dawn. Pester her about it, would you? I'm not your professor.
Talk back option tango.png
Can I ask about something else?
Talk end option tango.png
I wouldn't want to be your student.
Talk more option tango.png
How can I help you? (Goes to "Good. My worthless explorers are starting...")
Talk end option tango.png
How interesting.
Talk end option tango.png
That's all. Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png
No, not at all.
Complete heart (map icon).png
You sure helped out a lot around here. I guess that warrants a thank you. So there it is.
Karma.png
I think you owe me a favor.
Talk end option tango.png
You're welcome. I guess.

Notes[edit]

  • When he is speaking to Explorer Gillia, players will not be able to talk to him.
Sometimes players will not be able to talk to him, and he will only greet them with generic quotes. This can be fixed by completing Escort the Lionguard caravan to Broken Beacon, as he can be talked to after this event, and during the subsequent events.

Trivia[edit]

  • He has a crush on Explorer Gillia, but does not seem to have the courage to actually ask her out.
