At beginning of event
Hylek Research Specialist Grinti: No way.
Hylek Research Specialist Grinti: My genius mind always yields results.
Hylek Research Specialist Grinti: Most intriguing.
Grinti's Golem Assistant: Make—a—hole. Coming—through.
Hylek Research Specialist Grinti: I require assistance.
Hylek Research Specialist Grinti: Best get started.
Grinti's Golem Assistant: Squee!
Hylek Research Specialist Grinti: You know, something about the new line of golems just doesn't seem right.
Hylek Tlamatini: What? It's an attack!
Talking to Grinti
The hylek are a fascinating people. Under my close supervision, my golems were able to analzye
and categorize everything about their living structures.

I don't have time for this.

You mean they're more than just frogs?
To dismiss them as "frogs" does them a great disservice. They're complicated organisms with a highly developed social structure and hierarchy.

I apologize for any insult.

I had no idea.
And they have somehow been able to pinpoint the precise moments of the seasonal solstices with an accuracy that rivals even that of the asuran scholars.

And this is where my interest dramatically tapers off. Good-bye.
Talking to Grinti during the event
There seems to be something happening on the north side of the Duratl compound. If I sneak into their southern compound now, it might be my only shot at studying them in peace.

Good luck.

Why are you interested in the hylek?
The hylek tend to be aggressive toward outsiders. The Durotl have occassionally
welcomed us as neighbors. But I don't want to pass up a chance to study them. Think of the magical science to be gained.

Then you should go to them.
