Purple effect on the animals.

Hylek transformed into animals (they can be recognized by a purple glow and the Confusion.png Disoriented effect) can be either returned to their normal forms by defeating them and reviving the hylek, or by talking to Patli, receiveing Patli's Saliva from her and using the first skill, Throw Saliva, on the animals. Throwing the skill on unaffected animals will make them attack you. The second skill, Consume Saliva, grants random amount of buffs: Might.png Might, Vigor.png Vigor, Fury.png Fury, Protection.png Protection or Regeneration.png Regeneration. There is also a chance to turn into a random animal transformation, indicated by Transformation.png Transformed.

Near the hut
Ciucoatl: You'll make a good little pet.
Ciucoatl transforms Ollin and Tllali into boars and then she disappears.
After freeing Patli from the Mysterious Chest
Patli: Thank you. A krait witch took me captive and forced me to use my magic.
Patli: I'm ashamed to admit it, but I transformed a number of hylek into animals.
Patli: I'm certain they're nearby. Please help them.
During event
Patli: Hylek saliva can be used to transform the captives back to their true forms.
Patli: Speak to me if you need hylek saliva.
Rescuing a hylek
Rescued Zopatl Villager: My people thank you.
Event success
Patli: Success is ours!
