Walkthrough[edit]

As soon as you trigger the dialogue with Ifwyn, three Icebrood will rush upon you from behind. Drubin is a short distance inside the tunnel, resurrect him to trigger a cinematic.

Heading down the tunnel you come across a dredge survivor who is willing to help you - provided that you save him from the Icebrood. Several waves of Icebrood will approach, with a veteran Giant Icebrood Colossus in the last wave. Speaking with Vladok triggers the final cinematic for the area.

Travel to the Hunter's Hearth in Hoelbrak once more, and decide upon a plan and which order you're to join permanently.

Dialogue[edit]

Underburg[edit]

Upon arrival:

Agent Ifwyn: I don't like this. Where are the guards? Keep your eyes and ears open, Slayer.

Heading up the slope:

Agent Ifwyn: This is bad. My agent, Drubin, is in there somewhere. We have to find him.

If you talk to Ifwyn:

Agent Ifwyn: This is it. I expected dredge, but these ice dragon minions...icebrood, as they're often called...are a surprise.
Talk more option tango.png
I have some questions about the icebrood before we go on.
Fire away. It'll be nice to give some direct answers for a change.
Talk more option tango.png
Icebrood at this mine can't be a coincidence. What do you think?
We've never seen them do anything random. Even when no lieutenant is ordering them, they seem to be acting through some compulsion to carry out the dragon's will.
Talk more option tango.png
But why here?
Either the dragon wants something here, or something here drew these mindless minions like flies to rot.
Talk back option tango.png
I have more questions
Talk end option tango.png
Then the only way to find out is to see for ourselves.
Talk more option tango.png
How does something become a minion of the ice dragon?
The Elder Dragons can corrupt almost everything they touch...or look at, or breathe on. Some, like the Sons of Svanir, choose to become corrupted.
Talk more option tango.png
I can't imagine why anyone would choose corruption.
I never judge...but yes, the Sons of Svanir are deluded idiots. The dragons can make any minions they require. The sons are just volunteer cannon fodder.
Talk back option tango.png
I have more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Agreed. Now, we'd better get moving if we want to solve this puzzle.
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me more about this spy we're meeting.
Drubin's one of our best. He's been assigned to this area for years. Nobody knows the dredge like he does. If he's alive, he'll have the information we need.
Talk back option tango.png
I have more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
We'd better find him fast, then.
Talk end option tango.png
Troubling, but we have to press on.

Finding Drubin (cinematic):

Agent Ifwyn: Don't worry, Drubin. We'll get you out of here. What happened to you?
Drubin: Spirits bless you. Those crazy dredge test-fire their upgraded weapon, and suddenly I'm knee deep in Ice Dragon minions and fighting for my life.
<Character name>: Dragon minions? How did they get involved?
Drubin: I don't know. The weapon fired, and they swarmed in like dogs to a dinner bell. They attacked everything and everyone, even the dredge.
Drubin: The last I saw, dredge were fleeing into their tunnels, chased by the filthy beasts. They might know what happened, but I don't.
Agent Ifwyn: We'll go after them. You're in no shape to come along, though. Can you make it out of here on your own?
Drubin: With pleasure. The dredge leader is completely insane. The farther away from him I get, the better. If you're smart, you'll do the same.
Agent Ifwyn: Not yet. We need answers. Come on, Slayer. Let's go see if anything's left alive in there.

Approaching Vladok:

Vladok: Help! I'll do anything you ask, just don't let the beasts kill me!
Vladok: We never should have listened to Vyacheslav! Killing the last dwarf isn't worth our lives!
Agent Ifwyn: Keep that dredge alive! We'll make him tell us Vyacheslav's plan.

After defending Vladok (cinematic):

Vladok: Thank you for saving me. Those creatures... It was horrible. I am forever in your debt.
<Character name>: If you're truly grateful, tell me about Vyacheslav's weapon.
Vladok: I would not lightly betray the moletariat, but Vyacheslav is insane. I'll tell you all I know. Vyacheslav calls it the Mark III Sonic Vaporizer.
Vladok: It uses recorded cries of a captive ice dragon minion, subsonically amplified so that the vibration crushes stone.
Vladok: The last dwarf oppressor, Ogden Stonehealer, is hiding inside the Durmand Priory itself. Generations of enslaved dredge demand his death.
Agent Ifwyn: Ogden didn't oppress anyone. He's a hero and a valued member of the Durmand Priory.
Vladok: And Vyacheslav wants him dead. The problem is the Sonic Vaporizer attracts dragon minions whenever it's fired.
<Character name>: And Ogden's inside the Durmand Priory itself... Vyacheslav's going to fire his weapon at the Priory.
Agent Ifwyn: That will bury those scholars hip-deep dragon minions. We'd better return to Hoelbrak. Prott and the others need to hear this.

Talking to the NPCs after the cinematic:

Vladok: Please, stop Vyacheslav. His weapon is too dangerous, too unpredictable. Revenge on the dwarves is not worth the risk.
Talk end option tango.png
Leave Vyacheslav to us.
Agent Ifwyn: We've learned much, and not just about the weapon. Some dredge don't support Vyacheslav. We may be able to leverage that schism.
Talk end option tango.png
Good. But Vyacheslav is still the main problem.

Hunter's Hearth[edit]

At the Order Representatives (cinematic):

The voice acting for Crusader Thurkill's lines are not using the correct audio.
<Character name>: We've got to act quickly: Vyacheslav is targeting the Durmand Priory itself in an effort to kill Ogden Stonehealer.
<Character name>: What's worse, the weapon's sonic beam is based on the cries of dragon minions. The sound it makes will attract every dragon minion in the region.
Crusader Thhurkill: Sounds simple enough. We know where they're going. We can meet them head-on and destroy the weapon before they fire it.
Crusader Thhurkill: That's how the Vigil handles those who kill our soldiers and trifle with dragons. Vyacheslav and all who stand with him must die.
Agent Ifwyn: I agree. But the Order of Whispers has a subtler solution: the Slayer and I will use stealth magic to get close to Vyacheslav.
Agent Ifwyn: We can kill him without engaging all the dredge forces. Without their leader, they'll collapse into chaos.
Scholar Prott: Excuse me. The priory's main facility is entirely capable of defending itself. We have access to ancient and powerful magic.
Scholar Prott: Specifically, we have a silencing ritual that will completely baffle Vyacheslav's sonic weapon. No sound, no attack, and no lured dragon minions.
Eir Stegalkin: Tough choices, Slayer, but clear ones. But before you make your decision, you should understand how important this choice is.
Eir Stegalkin: Each of the orders would be honored to have you join. If you agree, the order you choose to help now will accept you into its ranks. Permanently.
Eir Stegalkin: That will put you in a position to join their fight against the Elder Dragons. I, for one, can think of no better path for a hero to take.
<Character name>: Agreed. I'm ready to confront the most dangerous threat Tyria has ever faced, and I'll need allies to do it. Give me a moment to consider, and then I'll choose.

Talking to the Order representatives:

Agent Ifwyn: A blade in the night, a secret in the dark—we are all this and more. Come with me, Slayer. Join the Order of Whispers.
Talk quest option tango.png
Very well. I'll make my home in the shadows and join the Order of Whispers. (Leads to Sever the Head.)
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me more about the Order of Whispers.
We pride ouselves on focus and efficency. We don't smash through a wall, we identify and remove the one brick that makes the wall collaps. If that sounds appealing, your choice is clear.
Talk quest option tango.png
Very well. I'll make my home in the shadows and join the Order of Whispers.
Talk end option tango.png
I need more time to consider my options.
Talk end option tango.png
I need more time to consider my options.
Crusader Thhurkill: Think of it, Slayer! The shouts of battle, the roar of victory! You'd be a natural fir in the Vigil. Come, join us!
Talk quest option tango.png
I do love a good brawl, and the Vigil seems most likely to save Tyria. I'm in. (Leads to Assault the Hill.)
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me more about the Vigil.
Our mission is to protect the innocent by crushing Threats with overwhelming force. We don't do subtle, we don't do nuance. We strike hard, we strike fast, we get results.

Scholar Prott: Once you see the Priory in all its glory, you'll be persuaded to join our cause. With your keen mind, you'd be a tremendous asset.
Talk quest option tango.png
I'm ready to join. The Durmand Priory is definitely the place for me. (Leads to Silent Warfare.)
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me more about the Durmand Priory.
We explore, we study, we learn. Each new discovery makes us hunt for more. From ancient tombs to mystic portals, nothing is beyond reach. If you are a trailblazer, join us.

If you choose the Order of Whispers (cinematic):

Agent Ifwyn: Excellent. You're very skilled. It'll be a pleasure to have you along. There's nothing llike hunting down foes and watching them die before they even know we're there.
<Character name>: That's right up my alley. I'll meet you at the gathering point, and we'll head in.
Agent Ifwyn: That's the spirit! This is how the Order of Whispers achieves results: by striking directly at the heart of the problem. Informed, precise, and effective.
Agent Ifwyn: And after we save the Priory, we'll turn that tactic on the Elder Dragons themselves.
Eir Stegalkin: You've chosen well, Slayer. I look forward to seeing the great things you will do with the Order of Whispers. I am proud to have found the hero Tyria needs.
Eir Stegalkin: I will join you for the defense of the Priory. Until then, and forever after, may the Spirits of the Wild walk with you.

If you choose the Durmand Priory (cinematic):

Scholar Prott: The Durmand Priory shall stand ready for the assault, and turn the dredge's own cleverness against them. With you at our side, we cannot fail.
<Character name>: I can't wait to see this fascinating "ancient ritual" you mentioned. I'll meet you at the gathering point.
Scholar Prott: The ritual is one part of our response. You are the other. This is how the Priory operates, how we succeed: by combining wisdom with action.
Scholar Prott: Once we've defeated the dredge and the dragon minions they summoned, we can begin the hard work of confronting the Elder Dragons themselves.
Eir Stegalkin: You've chosen well, Slayer. I look forward to seeing the great things you will do with the Priory. I am proud to have found the hero Tyria needs.
Eir Stegalkin: I will join you for the defense of the Priory. Until then, and forever after, may the Spirits of the Wild walk with you.

If you choose the Vigil (cinematic):

Crusader Thurkill: Excellent choice, Slayer. I'm glad to have you. You will provide the skill and strength we need to end the dredge threat once and for all.
<Character Name>: You honor me. Let me ready my weapon, and I will meet you at the Priory.
Crusader Thurkill: Where the dredge and their weapon will fall. This is how the Vigil gets results: by confronting evil head-on with overwhelming force.
Crusader Thurkill: And after we save those Priory eggheads, we take the fight to the Elder Dragons themselves.
Eir Stegalkin: You've chosen well, Slayer. I look forward to seeing the great things you will do with the Vigil. I am proud to have found the hero Tyria needs.
Eir Stegalkin: I will join you for the defense of the Priory. Until then, and forever after, may the Spirits of the Wild walk with you.

Talking to Crusader Thurkill

(after choosing the Vigil):
Crusader Thurkill: You made the right choice. Research and guile won't defeat the dragons. They need to be crushed, broken, utterly destroyed. With your help, the Vigil can begin its most important campaign.
Talk end option tango.png
Looking forward to it, Thurkill.
(otherwise):
Crusader Thurkill: That's too bad, Slayer. I thought you understand the stakes. You've made your decision, and I accept it. I just hope all of Tyria doesn't regret it.
Talk end option tango.png
The dragons will fall, Thurkill. I swear it.

Talking to Agent Ifwyn

(after choosing the Order of Whispers):
Agent Ifwyn: This is the start of something truly grand. With your skills, the Order of Whispers is finally ready to start dissecting the Elder Dragon problem.
Talk end option tango.png
I look forward to it.
(otherwise):
Agent Ifwyn: Well, I can't fault your dedication or your guts. Your decision-making skills, however...sorry. I'm just not used to rejection. There are no hard feelings, Slayer. Good luck.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks, Ifwyn.

Talking to Scholar Prott

(after choosing the Durmand Priory):
Scholar Prott: I'm glad you're joining us permanently. Defeating the dredge superweapon was only the beginning. With your help, the Priory is truly ready to start confronting the Elder Dragons.
Talk end option tango.png
I look forward to it.
(otherwise):
Scholar Prott: A shame you won't be joining us. You had the potential to reach our highest ranks. Still, I suppose you follow your own path.
Talk end option tango.png
I do. Thanks for understanding, Prott.

My story[edit]

Sabotage.jpg
Ifwyn and I rescued the missing Order of Whispers agent and determined that the Vyacheslav's Sonic Vaporizer not only does incredible damage to its target, it also attracts all ice dragon minions in the vicinity. We rushed back to Hoelbrak with this information for Eir and the other reps.

I met with Eir and the orders of Tyria to plan how we'd stop Vyacheslav's mad attack on the Durmand Priory. If he fires the Sonic Vaporizer, it won't just destroy the Priory walls and kill Ogden Stonehealer: it will also attract a horde of ice dragon minions. As Eir suggested, I permanently joined an order and committed to stopping this threat as a fist
[sic]
step toward confronting the Elder Dragons themselves.
