Dialogue[edit]

Commander! My research with essence manipulation has proved to be advantageous. By harnessing their power, we can exploit their weaknesses and their strengths!

You said you've been working on something called essence manipulation?
Yes! I've used the Spirits of the Wild as inspiration for the manipulation of spirit essence in Jormag's minions. In short, I've weaponized spirit essence against the very beings that produce it!

How do these pylons come into play?
Each pylon represents an essence category: resilience, vigilance, and valor. You can use the system I've developed to exploit each essence's strength and weakness.
Talk more option tango.png
What is each essence's weakness?
Well, essentially...each other! Resilience is weak to vigilance, valor is weak to resilience, and vigilance is weak to valor. It forms a perfect circle.
Talk more option tango.png
And how do I use the essence categories against each other?
It'll take some time to master the system, but I've provided a training exercise for you to start. Attack the pylon of resilience and collect the essence orbs it drops.
Talk ready option.png
Got it. (Warning: This will remove all current essence effects and special action skills.)
Researcher Yarixx: Right. Here's how it works. Attack that Pylon of Resilience and collect the orbs of essence it drops.
Researcher Yarixx: Well done. Now imbue yourself to the maximum threshold. Collect more essence orbs.
Researcher Yarixx: Feel that? You're experiencing the power of the resilience essence. Attack the target dummy to channel your new power.
Researcher Yarixx: Now, open that chest. It's vulnerable to the element you're harnessing and can only be opened if you've mastered it.
(If don't have Essence of Resilience Tier 1 trained)
Researcher Yarixx: Hmm. Looks like you need to develop your essence manipulation. Come back when you've progressed in your training.
(If successfully opened the chest)
Researcher Yarixx: Perfect. The more you train, the more the pylons will evolve. Now go give those beasts a taste of their own medicine.
Researcher Yarixx: Come back to me if you want a further explanation, or if you're interested in a strike mission.

Talk more option tango.png
Explain essence weakness to me again.
There are three essence categories: resilience, vigilance, and valor. Resilience is weak to vigilance, valor is weak to resilience, and vigilance is weak to valor. It forms a perfect circle.

Is there a place where spirit essence is most dangerous?
The Raven Sanctum is occupied by powerful beings that embody one of the three essences. Depending on who—or what—occupies it, a different essence will surge.
Talk more option tango.png
Show me where I need to go.
Researcher Yarixx: Fight powerful minions of Jormag who seek to dominate the Raven Sanctum, and test your essence manipulation prowess.
Talk back option tango.png
I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png
Got it. I'll get going.
Talk more option tango.png
Which essence is surging right now?
(if Weekly Strike Mission: Voice of the Fallen and Claw of the Fallen is on)
That would be the Essence of Resilience.
(if Weekly Strike Mission: Fraenir of Jormag is on)
That would be the Essence of Vigilance.
(if Weekly Strike Mission: Boneskinner is on)
That would be the Essence of Valor.

I had another question.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll be going.

Essence manipulation... Isn't this exploiting the Spirits of the Wild?
Yes! Isn't it fantastic? For so long, the norn haven't been able to TRULY harness the essence of their own spirits. Overall, I think they'll be quite pleased.
Talk back option tango.png
I don't think that's—never mind. I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png
I should go...
