Scholar Glenna is a Durmand Priory scholar, who serves as a vendor for Magnetite Shards in the Forsaken Thicket raid. The Rift Forger mastery must be learned before you can buy anything from her. She also offers to buy any raid-themed miniature for 40 magnetite shards.

Due to the substantial number of items sold by Scholar Glenna, her inventory and dialogue has been split across multiple pages.

Dialogue[edit]

At the start of Stronghold of the Faithful
I have a few minutes if you want to talk. I also have some supplies if you want to check out my inventory.
Talk ready option.png
Let's start the mission.
Talk more option tango.png
I see you brought explosives.
Scholar Glenna: They're my own blend of black powder, magnetite shards, and a few other compounds.
Scholar Glenna: The resulting shrapnel blast shatters everything in range, including magical barriers.
Scholar Glenna: The downside? They're highly unstable. If they take a good shock or are dropped, they would kill everything nearby.
Scholar Glenna: So don't even ask; you can't have one.
Talk more option tango.png
Are you some kind of ley-rift expert?
Scholar Glenna: Expert is an overstatement, but yes, I'm familiar with the subject.
Scholar Glenna: They seem to manifest in areas of high magic concentration.
Scholar Glenna: The Maguuma has been bathing in energy since Mordremoth's death.
Scholar Glenna: I suppose we should have expected that to happen. (sigh)
Scholar Glenna: If we can draw on it, we may be able to use it to our advantage.
Scholar Glenna: Or cause some unpredictable results. Magic—especially in high concentrations—can be difficult to control.
Talk more option tango.png
What led to your decision to help us here?
Scholar Glenna: Bennett shared his story after being freed at Salvation Pass.
Scholar Glenna: I knew you'd want to strike while we were deep in enemy territory.
Scholar Glenna: So I'm at your disposal. I have plenty of supplies, including explosives that should get us inside their fortifications.
Scholar Glenna: After that, we'll have to improvise. It seems as if our enemy has been constructing this complex for quite some time.
Scholar Glenna: I don't know what's inside.
Talk Merchant.png
I'd like to browse your inventory.
In the Courtyard
I'll stay back while you deal with that... thing. I bet this place is a treasure trove of White Mantle history.
Talk more option tango.png
What do you make of Xera?
<Character name>: What are your thoughts on Xera?
Scholar Glenna: I know as much about her as you. She's powerful, no doubt. And she commands a rather large force.
Scholar Glenna: If I had to guess, I'd say she's a mesmer.
<Character name>: How can you tell?
Scholar Glenna: I just have a feeling. I mean, look at this place—the statues, the paintings... I swear they're watching us.
Scholar Glenna: Don't trust everything you see. Deceptions abound.
Talk more option tango.png
They have the last mursaat.
<Character name>: I guess Bennett was right about Lazarus.
Scholar Glenna: Technically, we don't know if Lazarus is actually here. I mean, maybe he is?
Scholar Glenna: Or maybe they're summoning him from another dimension?
Scholar Glenna: I have to admit my knowledge of the mursaat is limited. They've been out of sight—and mind—for more than 200 years.
Scholar Glenna: But I will concede that Bennett was likely onto something.
Scholar Glenna: These militants wouldn't be muttering that "your death will bring Him life!" without it meaning something.
Talk more option tango.png
What do you think about their bloodstone weapons?
<Charater name>: What's your theory on bloodstone weapons?
Scholar Glenna: Long ago, the White Mantle sacrificed humans on the Maguuma Bloodstone.
Scholar Glenna: They trapped the spirits of the sacrificed inside magical containers...
Scholar Glenna: ...which were then transported to where they needed large amounts of energy.
Scholar Glenna: Specifically to the Door of Komalie, where the magic kept their enemies—the Titans—at bay.
Scholar Glenna: And we all know how that worked out.
Scholar Glenna: But we never really knew what these devices were actually made from.
Scholar Glenna: If the sacrifices at Salvation Pass are any indication, the "soul batteries" of old were chunks of charged bloodstone.
Scholar Glenna: Now with all this loose magic, they're using the charged fragments as weapons—and as power sources to heal their "god".
Scholar Glenna: We recovered barrels of charged bloodstone fragments from Salvation Pass. I bet they were being transported here.
Scholar Glenna: And they've managed to use those shards in their weapons. That's my guess at least.
Talk more option tango.png
What are your thoughts on Bennett?
<Character name>: How's Bennett doing since the rescue mission?
Scholar Glenna: I'm not sure. I assume he regrouped with his squad and returned to Divinity's Reach to report on the situation.
Scholar Glenna: I'm glad he's safe now. He seems like a good man, despite his quirks.
<Character name>: What do you mean, "quirks?"
Scholar Glenna: He's always betting his missing eye! Either he's a lousy gambler, or he took one on the head while held captive.
Scholar Glenna: Or he's making a fashion statement. Hmm.
Talk more option tango.png
How do you create ley lines.
<Character name>: How did you learn to create ley lines?
Scholar Glenna: Ley lines are just channels of flowing magic. I simply draw the energy together in an effort to redirect it.
Scholar Glenna: So I don't actually create ley lines—they're already there in a manner of speaking.
Scholar Glenna: And since magic is in great supply these days...
<Character name>: You're able to manipulate it more easily in the Maguuma Jungle. Nice trick.
Scholar Glenna: Thanks. I'm sure the Priory will be excited to read my field notes.
Talk Merchant.png
What do you have for sale?
(If you haven't obtained Rift Forger)
Nothing for you. Learn about ley rifts!
Talk end option tango.png
Those words cut deep.
After defeating Xera
I have a few minutes if you want to talk. I also have some supplies if you want to check out my inventory.
Talk more option tango.png
Where have you been?
<Character name>: Where have you been?
Scholar Glenna: While you were dealing with Xera and her ill-tempered illusions, I investigated the courtyard.
Scholar Glenna: There's all manner of White Mantle propaganda stashed in strange places.
Scholar Glenna: You may want to poke around there if you haven't already?
Scholar Glenna: Then I heard the ruckus you made by interfering with the ley rifts and bloodstone shard, so I hurried here.
Talk more option tango.png
What's in the stasis chamber over there?
<Character name>: What's in the stasis chamber?
Scholar Glenna: All I can say is that I think we have a problem on our hands.
<Character name>: Great.
Talk more option tango.png
I wasn't expecting Xera to put up such a fight.
<Character name>: I wasn't expecting Xera to put up such a fight.
Scholar Glenna: She was no ordinary mesmer, that's for certain.
Scholar Glenna: She harnessed more magic than Matthias back at Salvation Pass.
Scholar Glenna: All this tinkering with bloodstone fragments and loose energy is dangerous business.
Scholar Glenna: Magic is becoming more difficult to control. It's behaving in unpredictable ways.
Scholar Glenna: Remember Slothasor? I wouldn't have imagined such a weird creation under normal circumstances.
Scholar Glenna: And don't even get me started on what Xera managed to accomplish here.
Scholar Glenna: How many mesmers can rip apart the very foundation of a castle like this? It's frightening.
Scholar Glenna: All this mayhem is real, not some magician's trick.
Scholar Glenna: This castle is in shambles, and I doubt it's going to return to normal anytime soon.
Talk more option tango.png
What are your thoughts on Slothasor?
<Character name>: Do you think we'll see any other creatures changed by magic like Slothasor?
Scholar Glenna: That weird creature back in Salvation Pass? Ugh. Where do I begin...
Scholar Glenna: In all my travels I've never seen something quite so freakish.
Scholar Glenna: It's as if a sloth and a slug had too much wine and awoke the next day with regrets.
(if human)
<Character name>: Uh... inappropriate!
(if charr)
<Character name>: This is Asura humor, right?
(if asura)
<Character name>: I don't think that's scientifically possible.
(if sylvari)
<Character name>:
(if norn)
<Character name>:
Scholar Glenna: After he died, he released magic.
Scholar Glenna: Hard to say if the White Mantle experimented on him or the residual magic released by Mordremoth caused him to mutate.
Scholar Glenna: Either way, I hope not to encounter another.
Scholar Glenna: A shame he was killed, though. I bet whoever beat him to death probably feels absolutely terrible. He just wanted a hug!
<Character name>: You're not serious, are you?
