Relatively straightforward: kill the enemy. Discuss distraction options with Rytlock. You need only to discuss one option. However, implementing those distractions are optional actions. Whatever choice you make to proceed, you must terminate approximately seven or eight groups of five charr soldiers on your way to your ultimate target, Trybulus Griefblade. Kill Trybulus to end the mission.









Upon approaching Rytlock Brimstone (cinematic):

Rytlock Brimstone: Trybulus is definitely in there, with a full complement of Flame Legion troops.
Rytlock Brimstone: It'll be tricky to get close without alerting the guard. Looks like your kind of battlefield, Ash. What's the plan?
<Character name>: We can't risk face-to-face combat. We need a diversion that'll draw some troops away before we sneak in.
Rytlock Brimstone: Divide and conquer? I love the classics! Once we separate them, we can destroy them...quick and quiet-like.
<Character name>: Now you're thinking like an Ash Legion soldier, sir. Follow my lead, and Trybulus will never see us coming.

Talking to your allies:

Clawspur: Brief the tribune. Then we'll go.
Talk end option tango.png Good idea. I'll do it.
Dinky: Talk to the tribune. He's been staring at me. I think he's going to eat me.
Talk end option tango.png Right. I'll do that.
Euryale: Brief the tribune. We need to work as a team.
Talk end option tango.png Good idea. I'll do that.
Maverick: You should talk to Tribune Brimstone. Tell him it's my plan, okay?
Talk end option tango.png No promises on that one, Mav, but I'll get him up to speed.
Reeva: Did you know that Tribune Brimstone likes Asura cuisine? I had no idea! Oh, and you should probably tell him the plan. I didn't want to presume.
Talk end option tango.png Good call. I'll do that right now.
<Other warband member>: We should brief the tribune before we proceed.
Talk end option tango.png Good call. I'll do it.

Formulating a plan with Rytlock Brimstone:

Rytlock Brimstone: You said something about distractions. What'd you have in mind, <Character name>?
Talk more option tango.png Know much about the local wildlife?
Hm. There's some trolls near here, and they hate everything that's not them. We could get them out in the open and watch them cause trouble. What else?
Talk more option tango.png I've got some other ideas.
We need distractions, <Character name>, and I'm all ears. Tell me your ideas.
Talk quest option tango.png I can take it from here. Just follow my lead.
Talk quest option tango.png That's a good start. Move out, and follow me.
Talk more option tango.png These woods are dry. Maybe we could torch something.
Good idea. I've got some firestarters. There's a bush near the entrance of their hideout that looks downright flammable. Anything else?
Talk more option tango.png I've got some other ideas.
We need distractions, <Character name>, and I'm all ears. Tell me your ideas.
Talk quest option tango.png I can take it from here. Just follow my lead.
Talk quest option tango.png Solid. Let's move.
Talk more option tango.png I think I can short-circuit one of those turrets and make it explode.
Taking a page from the Iron Legion, eh? Tinkering to turn Flame's own weapons against them - which makes it doubly ironic. I like it!
Talk more option tango.png I've got some other ideas.
We need distractions, <Character name>, and I'm all ears. Tell me your ideas.
Talk quest option tango.png I can take it from here. Just follow my lead.
Talk quest option tango.png Solid. Move out.
Talk more option tango.png I've got some smoke powder. Maybe we could use that?
Whew! That stuff smells like the hind end of a marmox! Throw that in a bonfire, and you'll get their undivided attention! Any other ideas?
Talk quest option tango.png That's a good start. Move out, and follow my lead.
Talk end option tango.png Give me a minute to think something up.

Talking to your allies after formulating a plan:

Rytlock Brimstone: Right behind you, <character name>. With any luck, Trybulus won't know what hit him 'til it break him in half.
Talk end option tango.png Just half, sir? Wouldn't eighths be more satisfying?
Yahuk Fellstrike: I hate the Flame Legion. First a cage, then a lava cave. Now this.
Talk end option tango.png Keepan eye out. Make sure they don't get the jump on us.
Samona Ironclaw: Heh. These Flame guys are total chumps.
Talk end option tango.png Dangerous chumps. Make sure they don't get the drop on us.
Wroda the Quick: We can slip through, no problem. As long as we're quiet.
Talk end option tango.png Keep an eye out. Make sure they don't get the jump on us.
Clawspur: Keep your ears down and your tail low.
Talk end option tango.png Will do. These Flame Legion guys won't get the jump on us.
Dinky: I thought the Flame Legion were supposed to be dangerous. You make this look easy!
Talk end option tango.png Thanks, Dinky. Stay alert.
Euryale: We'll melt these Flame guys into slag.
Talk end option tango.png You better believe it.
Maverick: These Flame Legion soldiers can't hold a candle to ya. Ha! Get it?
Talk end option tango.png Haha. Stay sharp. These guys are everywhere.
Reeva: These Flame guys are about as smart as my meatloaf.
Talk end option tango.png Nah. I'd bet on your meatloaf, any day.

In the Quarry:

Rytlock Brimstone: Come on. Let's invite a few trolls to this party!

At the Quarry Entrance:

Quarry Entrance: These slavering trolls would attack immediately if provoked.
Talk combat option tango.png Rile up the trolls.
Talk end option tango.png Let the trolls be.
Rytlock Brimstone: That did it! Stand clear for the troll stampede!
Flame Legion Sentry: I hate waiting around. I want to head north to the Flame Legion lands.
Flame Legion Sentry: It'll be soon. Trybulus ran into trouble, and now the Ash Legion is sniffing around.
Flame Legion Sentry: So? With the intel Trybulus got from that cub, the citadel's done for. We win.

At the Dying Bush:

Dying Bush: These dry leaves would easily burn.
Talk combat option tango.png Detonate a charge to light the bush on fire.
Talk end option tango.png Do nothing to the bush.
Flame Legion Sentry: What in the_[verification requested] Did you hear that? Stay here, we'll take a look.
Flame Legion Sentry: Low profile, you idiots! How are we supposed to stay out of sight if we burn down the whole forest?

At the Malfunctioning Flame Turret:

Malfunctioning Flame Turret: The right tweaks would make this malfunctioning turret explode.
Talk combat option tango.png Sabotage the turret and make it explode.
Talk end option tango.png Leave the turret alone.
Flame Legion Sentry: Are we okay out here? Trybulus said the Ash Legion might be onto us.
Flame Legion Sentry: Ha! Those dimwits couldn't find their own tails with both hands. You'll be fine.

At the Small Bonfire:

Small Bonfire: Some Flash powder would pep up this fire.
Talk combat option tango.png Throw flash powder on the flames.
Talk end option tango.png Leave the fire alone.
Flame Legion Sentry: What in Gaheron's name was that? Check it out!
Flame Legion Sentry: Burn me alive...there's nothing here? Hmpf. Everyone, back to your positions, and quit playing around!
Flame Legion Sentry: I don't like this. It's too quiet.
Flame Legion Sentry: Shut up, and don't question orders. Trybulus might hear you.

Talking with your allies before approaching Trybulus Griefblade:

Rytlock Brimstone: Die, Flame!
Talk end option tango.png On it!
Yahuk Fellstrike: Get him! Get him!
Talk end option tango.png On it!
Samona Ironclaw: This traitor's goin' down!
Talk end option tango.png Totally!
Wroda the Quick: Break 'em down!
Talk end option tango.png Will do!
Clawspur: Die, Trybulus!
Talk end option tango.png Keep fighting!
Dinky: Booyah!
Talk end option tango.png Wipe 'em out!
Euryale: Kill them all! For Tribune Desertgrave!
Talk end option tango.png On it!
Maverick: Thump him! Harder!
Talk end option tango.png I will!
Reeva: That's for what you did to our tribune!
Talk end option tango.png You tell 'em, Reeva!

Approaching Trybulus Griefblade (cinematic):

Trybulus Griefblade: The irritating legionnaire lives to vex me. Again. I must be cursed.
Rytlock Brimstone: It's over, Trybulus. Blood and Ash are united against you. You won't get away this time.
Trybulus Griefblade: Rytlock Brimstone? I take it back, Legionnaire. You bless me with this splendid gift.
Trybulus Griefblade: Torturing Desertgrave was fun, but the information I'll glean from Brimstone will raise me to the Flame Imperator's right claw!
<Character name>: I have some "information" for you, Trybulus. I know how you die. And it's time you found out.

Comments made by Trybulus Griefblade during his fight:

Trybulus Griefblade: Shall we play with you some before killing you? I do hate to be bored.
Trybulus Griefblade: Not bad, little mice! You just earned my full attention, and it's going to hurt!
Trybulus Griefblade: I cease to be amused. Bow down, or be destroyed!
Trybulus Griefblade: No! By Gaheron, I will not die this way!

After killing Trybulus Griefblade (cinematic):

Rytlock Brimstone: Ha! Nice work, soldier. That was so much fun, I don't want to stop. Here, I'll hold up Trybulus' body, and you kill him again.
<Character name>: Thanks, but no thanks, Tribune. We've wasted enough time on this Flame Legion scum.
Rytlock Brimstone: Too true. You've done good work here. You did the Ash Legion proud.
<Character name>: Thank you, Tribune. It was an honor to have you fight by my side. Not many from Blood Legion would try it our way.
Rytlock Brimstone: I like knowing how my allies fight. It's the best way to keep them from becoming my enemies. Now, get some downtime. You've earned it.
<Character name>: Looking forward to it, sir.

Talking with your allies after killing Trybulus Griefblade:

Rytlock Brimstone: Excellent work, Legionnaire. Even the Flame Legion's spymasters are no match for you.
Dignity We were lucky to catch him before he'd gone too far, sir.
Modest, as well. That's rare in a charr. Although, perhaps not in the Ash Legion; where you keep your talents hidden from all. Well...all but me.
Talk end option tango.png I serve my legion, sir, as well as the citadel. That's an oath I honor proudly.
Ferocity There's a time for stealth, and there's a time for outright murder. The trick is being able to distinguish between the two.
Ha! I like you, Legionnaire. I'll be keeping an eye on your advancement.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you, sir. You haven't seen anything yet.
Charisma I prefer kudos accompanied by a proper military salute-21 shots of citadel whiskey!
Ha! I admire a soldier who knows proper protocol. Keep it up, Legionnaire, and maybe someday I'll be saluting you.
Talk end option tango.png I couldn't imagine it, sir. For now, let's return to the citadel.
Talk end option tango.png I do my best, sir.
Yahuk Fellstrike: Oh, wow. That was...that was amazing.
Talk end option tango.png Best warband in the legion.
Samona Ironclaw: That was awesome. Can't wait to share the good news.
Talk end option tango.png See you back at the citadel.
Wroda the Quick: We did it so well! This is the best warband in the Ash Legion.
Talk end option tango.png Yeah. We absolutely are.
Clawspur: Good. He's dead.
Talk end option tango.png We did well, and our warband's stronger.
Dinky: Tribune Torga's safe, Brimstone's happy, and we're the best warband in the world. We did good.
Talk end option tango.png Totally, Dinky. Totally.
Euryale: I'm glad Tribulus is dead, but I can't help thinking he deserved something more painful.
Talk end option tango.png Next time, I'll see what I can do
Maverick: So awesome! And I don't just mean me. You were pretty good, too.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks, Mav. I think we make a pretty good team.
Reeva: Oh, well done! Trybulus totally deserved everything he got.
Talk end option tango.png I absolutely agree. Well done. I'm glad you were here with me.

Upon completing this quest:

My story[edit]

Quick and Quiet.jpg

Rytlock Brimstone helped me take out Trybulus Griefblade before that rat could share the information he tortured out of poor Fengar Cruelmane. The Flame Legion remains a threat, but I've proven myself as a leader, gained Rytlock's approval, and strengthened my warband for the challenges to come.
