Lion's Arch[edit]

In Grand Piazza
I was told that some throw coins into public receptacles for good luck.
Talk more option tango.png I guess I've heard that too. So?
My research further indicates that the desired receptacle for this ritual is concave in nature.
Talk more option tango.png It sounds like you're talking about "wishing wells."
Yes, exactly! I've been throwing coins into this "wishing well" here, to research the resultant alteration of fortune.
Talk more option tango.png That's a planter, not a wishing well.
Nonsense! This receptacle fits the description perfectly. I'm close—I can feel it. All I need is some empirical evidence.
Talk end option tango.png Yeah, well, good luck with that.
Talk end option tango.png Yeah, well, good luck with that.
Talk end option tango.png I regret starting this conversation.
Talk end option tango.png Sorry, I don't have time for this.
In Special Forces Training Area
Are you lost?
Talk ready option.png I just wanted some information about this place.
Technician: Welcome to the test lab!
Technician: Here you can practice combat techniques and fine-tune strategies before deploying to Tyria's toughest battles.
Technician: When you're ready to begin, approach the console and select the desired scenario.
Technician: I will then summon a variety of test golems that you can pummel with reckless abandon.
Technician: A report of your damage output and other details will be logged for your review.
Technician: Bear in mind that I can't advise you on combat strategy, so don't ask for tips.
Technician: Thanks, Black Lion legal team.
Talk more option tango.png Where am I?
This is an experimental combat arena that I've leased out to the BLTC.
Talk ready option.png Who are you?
Technician: I'm not allowed to fraternize with the clients.
Technician: Thanks again, Black Lion legal team.
Technician: But in answer to your question, I'm the asura with all the toys.
Technician: Be nice to me, and you can play with them.
Talk more option tango.png Experimental?
I'm building test golems that experience a range of sentient emotions and feelings, both mental and physical.
Talk more option tango.png And you're letting us...kill them?
I need a steady stream of data, and you're here to help me get it.
Talk end option tango.png I feel dirty. Bye.
Talk end option tango.png That sounds interesting. See ya!
Talk more option tango.png Combat?
For the time being. Your sharp objects and magical manipulations will help me calibrate the sensors that I've built to dermine whether or not these golems are actually feeling anything.
Talk ready option.png Help me become combat ready.
Technician: I'm forbidden from advising you on specific strategies, but I can give you some general pointers on how not to die.
Technician: For starters, you'll want to make sure you're equipped with the proper armor.
Technician: I personally wouldn't go in wearing anything less than exotic armor.
Technician: But I've heard tales of insance raiders going into combat with nothing but their underwear!
Technician: So yeah, wear the right clothes.
Technician: You'll want to join a squad of like-minded individuals—effective communicators and sturdy fighters.
Technician: Oftentimes, squad members will define their roles depending on the characteristics of the fight.
Technician: Lastly, you'll want to consider bringing food or other consumables that could give you an advantage.
Technician: Not all items will work, mind you. Check the description in your inventory if you're unsure.
Talk more option tango.png This seems...wrong.
I need a steady stream of data, and you're here to help me get it.
Talk end option tango.png I feel dirty. Bye.
Talk end option tango.png Okay. See ya.
Talk more option tango.png Arena?
It's a big circle in which you can fight things. You say the word, and I summon the golem for you to attack. Great for assessing your combat effectiveness—and working off stress.
Talk ready option.png Tell me more about the golems.
Technician: The test golems can be configured in a variety of ways. Like they can be made to feel pain. Oh, I forgot to do that...
Technician: The challenges in the field will demand you to change tactics, swap weapons, be aware of your positioning, etc.
Technician: What you learn here may save your hide out there.
Talk more option tango.png How long have you been here?
Since they rebuilt the city, though I only recently started allowing visitors. The first person who came through said it needed a paint job and offered to paint everything red. Can you believe it? RED?
Talk end option tango.png I've always liked red, personally. See ya.
Talk end option tango.png Fair enough. Bye!
Talk end option tango.png I changed my mind.
Talk end option tango.png I'll leave you to it.

Siren's Landing[edit]

Aboard The Buoyant Bough
Please don't touch the plants. They haven't been prepped for relocation yet.
Talk more option tango.png Are these the plants that you've been placing around the shore?
Some of them, yes. We need to make sure they're strong enough to adapt to the soil here. It isn't as toxic as it was, but it's no Grove. We're planting these to help speed up its recovery.
Talk end option tango.png I hope it works.
Talk end option tango.png I'll keep my distance.


Male asura at Lava Flats
Can't talk. Preoccupied. Come back later.
Look, I hate to be rude, but I'm pretty busy. Come back later? Thanks!
Busy! Come back later, please!
Female asura at Lava Flats
Not now! I'm sciencing pretty hard at the moment.
I'm a bit busy. Please let me work in peace.
Would you mind being a "hero" somewhere else? I'm in the middle of something.
