Mia Kindleshot

You hungry, Commander? Because we're hungry. Iron Legion's got the itch. Let's wrestle that crystal bastard to the ground and tear victory from it's throat!

I like the sound of that. Good hunting, Tribune.

Mellitus

Been a wild day, Commander. Hope you're ready.

What's on the menu for today?
End of the world special: chicken and rice with fresh carrots and broccoli. Plus a bit of dwarven spice and something the Sunspears call "fire sauce." Interested?

I don't think this food is settling well with me.
Is that so? A touch too spicy, then? I've got some herbs that'll clear it right up and settle that stomach of yours.

Talk more option tango.png
Excuse me...
If you don't mind, Commander, I'd like to keep meditating. We don't have much time before the battle.
Talk end option tango.png
Of course.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll leave you be.

Radiance

Until now, our choir and our resonance crystals have been used to create objects of wonder. But today we lend them to doing battle against Kralkatorrik himself. Our voices are with you, Commander.
Talk end option tango.png
Thank you—we couldn't do this without you.

General Almorra Soulkeeper

It's time, Commander. After all this time...after all these years...my warband will finally be avenged. Let's just hope what we learned from our fights against the Shatterers will pay off.
Talk end option tango.png
Our odds are better with you here, Almorra.

Shadows Agent Kito

You never fail to impress, Commander. To see so many come together for this fight... Not even the Order of Shadows could have pulled this off. Even with all of our...infuence.
Talk end option tango.png
You helped resolve differences in Jahai. That helped immensely.

Awakened Sylvari

Commander.
Talk more option tango.png
(if sylvari) Sister, how are... I don't understand.
Talk more option tango.png
(otherwise) How did this happen?
We had a small presence in Gandara, where...we learned our protection against dragon corruption doesn't extend to lich kings. But what's done is done. Now, perhaps, we can help.
Talk more option tango.png
(if sylvari) What was it like, under the lich king's control?
It was...strange. As if my obedience to Joko had wholly subsumed my Wild Hunt. He was killed before we were deployed, but... we were changed, and belonged nowhere. So we hid. Are you...do you find us—
Talk end option tango.png
It's good to have you back among us, sister.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm glad you're here. We all are.
Talk end option tango.png
Please excuse me.

Spearmarshal Zaeim

Commander. My Sunspears aren't used to cold, but the fires in our bellies are burning bright indeed. We'll fight to the last to bring that dragon down. Let's make Tahlkora proud.
Talk end option tango.png
You already have, Spearmarshal.

Pact Soldier Varren [verification requested]

Commander! I, uh... I—
Talk more option tango.png
Something the mater, soldier?
Me? Certainly. I mean, there's—oh, I don't know, Commander. To see everyone come together like they have... It's inspiring. Truly inspiring. But despite it all...I must admit I'm kind of scared.
Talk more option tango.png
I hear you. But don't forget all the challenges we've overcome to get here.
Yeah, I suppose you're right. No easy task getting this far. Heh... You really are confident, aren't you, Commander?
Talk more option tango.png
With allies like we've got—like you—how can we fail?
Yeah. You're right. We're going to do this. We're really going to do this! We're going to slay the hell out of that monster!

Can I help you?

Pretty sure that golem is Inquest tech. Are you...
Inquest? I was, but no longer. Rata Primus was a wake-up call. I'm here to do my part.
Talk more option tango.png
You were at Rata Primus?
Yes. No hard feelings. Just a shame my work couldn't be salvaged. Other than MN-4C3, of course. Speaking of which, I'd like to calibrate hydraulics one last time before the battle.

Glad to have you here.

Commander! How can I help you?.
(if character does not have Partially Protected.png Runestone of Power)
Talk more option tango.png
Do you have anything special to aid in the fight against Kralkatorrik?
In fact, I do. Been working on a runestone that will infuse your weapons with some powerful magic, but only for a short time.

(if character has Partially Protected.png Runestone of Power)

This runestone's magic has a distracting vibration to it. Can we remove it?
Of course! A warrior of your stature should be just fine without it, anyway. Now hold still just a moment...

Jaynes

Hello, friend. Something I can do for you?
(if character does not have Defense Up.png Reinforced Armor)
Talk more option tango.png
Can you reinforce my armor?
I can at that. Forging the Dragonsblood weaponry inspired me to do a little research. Found a technique that reinforces your armor against Kralk's magic, but only temporarily. Want to give it a shot?
Talk more option tango.png
Let's do it. (Warning: This removes eligibility for certain achievements.) (gain Defense Up.png Reinforced Armor)
Talk end option tango.png
Not right now. Take care, Amira.

(if character has Defense Up.png Reinforced Armor)
Talk more option tango.png
This reinforced armor is too uncomfortable. I'd rather fight without it.
Ah, I see. The technique could use further refinement. I'm sure that with accolades like yours, you'll be just fine without it, though. Let's remove it.
Talk more option tango.png
Sounds good. May again become eligible for certain achievements.) (lose Defense Up.png Reinforced Armor)

On second thought, let's leave it. I can work with this.

Olmakhan Nightwalker

Look here—some good news at last! My dearest friend, returned to me! I was heartbroken to hear he had been turned in Gandara...but he's the same as he ever was!
Talk end option tango.png
Praise Joko, I suppose.

In front of him, his awakened friend: Awakened Sandshifter

It's good to be among my people again. It's been... a very long time.
Talk more option tango.png
You just returned?
Yes, at Gandara. Figured we Awakened were condemned to wander, but hearing of this force amassing to defear kralkatorrik gave me hope that there a place for us here, too.
Talk end option tango.png
Glad you're with us.

I'd Imagine.

Wurmmarshal Osa Ekolo and Troopmarshal Pelu Egan

Wurmmarshal Osa Ekolo: Commander. Grace and I are ready. Let's put Kralkatorrik to rest, and free Elona—and all of Tyria—from that wretched blight.
Talk more option tango.png
And you, Troopmarshal?
My troops are as capable as always. You command a great deal of respect among them___and the wurmmarshal and Sianna, too. We're all behind you, Commander.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks. We'll need everyone if we're going to get through this.
Talk end option tango.png
Yes. Let's.
Staging area
Character name:> Canach, your team have those explosives set and ready to go?
Canach: (whistling) Just the finishing touches now.
Character name:> Love the positivity. But wrap it up, please.
Vigil Warmaster: Ah, Commander. Welcome. Captain Thackeray and the others are waiting for you just beyond the mess hall.
Vigil Warmaster: All right, medics—we need you on the northeastern ramparts. Remember to grab a meal in the mess hall before you move out.
Vigil Warmaster: Frontline fighters: When the gates fall—and they will—your job is to secure the Forge. Keep the Brand out.
Vigil Warmaster: Now then, Awakened... I've got a job for you too, supporting the Olmakhan detachment to the southwest. Don't cause any trouble.
Sunspear: Hear me, Kormir. I call upon you with sincere heart and clear intention.
Sunspear: Guide my aim to strike deep and true. Guide my shield to protect every ally at my side.
Sunspear: Oh, Kormir! Fortify my spirit. Let me meet my end shining with your glorious light.
Mellitus: Commander! I whipped up something special to feed the troops. Want a taste?
Arriving at the battle council table.
Logan Thackery: Just like old times, eh, Rytlock?
Rytlock Brimstone: Let's hope not.
Discussing the battle plan
<Character name>: Okay...between the fleet's cannons and Canach dropping a mountain on him, Kralk should already be hurting when he shows.
<Character name>: Aurene will keep him busy while I trigger the resonance crystals, starting here.
<Character name>: That should stun him and buy me time to get to the second crystal, where we hit him again.
<Character name>: Braham's team holds the third until I can get there, and we trigger the final blast. Okay, I think we're actually ready.
The Commander's speech
<Character name>: Everyone, listen up! We'd all love to have more time to prepare for this. We don't have that luxury.
<Character name>: But the truth is, we don't need it. Kralkatorrik seems invincible, but he himself had a vision-a prophecy-of a world without him.
<Character name>: We have everything we need. He's hurting-half out of his mind. We're going to lure him right where we want him-
<Character name>: -and then we're going to make this vision a reality.
<Character name>: Glint believed in us. I believe in you. Together, we're going to save the world-and kill the Crystal Dragon. To your posts.
Forge Master Hilina: Commander. I have modified the resonance crystals with dredge technology. They are ready.
<Character name>: None of this would be possible without your work. We won't forget.
Forge Master Hilina: It has been my honor. Caithe and Aurene await you in the auditorium.
After the Commander's speech
Sunspear: I've got icicles in places that shouldn't have icicles. Doesn't the cold bother you?
Elder Yowen: Thinking about home keeps me warm. Honey on toast. Hot soup. Mmm. What's your home like?
Sunspear: Golden sand dunes. So warm, you could fall asleep standing up.
Elder Yowen: Can you remember what it smells like?
Sunspear: Hay. Dolyaks. Dry palm fronds.
Elder Yowen: Doing better?
Sunspear: Yeah. Yeah, I am.
In stairwell, when heading to Caithe and Aurene
Vigil Crusader: All I can think about is dying before dawn. I can't do this.
Awakened Soldier: A dolyak could fall on you tomorrow, but that wouldn't help your family. Dying in battle might.
Awakened Soldier: You could live to be an old man, but if the cost was your little sisters' lives—would you pay it?
Vigil Crusader: No... You're right. I can do this.
Meeting up with Caithe and Aurene
<Character name>: How's she doing?
Caithe: She's afraid, but... She's ready to enter the Mists and draw Kralkatorrik here.
Aurene: (chirp)
Caithe: I know. But you trust us, don't you?
Aurene: (chirp)
<Character name>: A lot's hanging on this. It's a heavy weight to carry. But you and I are carrying it together. Scion and champion, right?
Aurene: (burble)
Initiating the battle
<Character name>: Okay, Aurene. It's time.
Rytlock Brimstone: This feels familiar...
Sayida the Sly: Uh, we've just got a massive storm out here. Just blew in out of nowhere!
<Character name>: Sayida? Do you re-?
Taimi: Commander! Oh my gosh, he's here. He's here NOW!
Sayida the Sly: All ships, fire! Fire!
Sayida the Sly: Commander, brace yourself! He's-
Taimi: Has he always been this...this...
Gorrik: ALCHEMY, he's HUGE!
<Character name>: Canach! Blow the charges, NOW!
Canach: With pleasure!
<Character name>: Okay. Just like before. I channel her power...
Taimi: He's focused on Aurene, Commander. Time for you to do your thing.
<Character name>: There, on this neck! Focus your assault on that wound!
Rytlock: Huh. That actually worked.
Taimi: It sure did. According to this data, he's weakening. Disoriented. Wow, he's REALLY hurting...
Gorrik: Good. Keep it coming.
Caithe: Aurene says it's working! We're breaking him! She says hit him again—HARDER!
<Character name>: Okay, I'm heading for the second crystal.
Caithe: Commander, come here! Aurene says she can use the ley lines to help you get across.
Taimi: Commander! Are you...flying OVER the dragon?
Gorrik: Look out! He's trying to push in further!
Taimi: Whoa—Aurene just Branded Kralk to the wall! Better get to that second crystal quick.
Captain Glennon: It's a wyvern! Take it down!
Logan Thackeray: They're draining the crystals!
<Character name>: We've got to kill them closer to the crystals! That'll recharge them!
Vigil Marksman: Look, up there! Something's coming!
Zafirah: We're not late, are we?
<Character name>: Zafirah! Right on time.
Zafirah: Zaishen, to arms! Prophecies don't fulfill themselves!
Rox: Commander! Incoming, north side!
Logan Thackeray: Looks like we have a bigger problem.
<Character name>: There-crystal's charged again.
<Character name>: On my way to the last crystal. Keep the Branded off this one.
Zafirah: Take all the time you need.
Rox: Seriously?
<Character name>: Blocked! Gotta find another way around.
<Character name>: Damn. This way's blocked too.
Caithe: We're running out of alternative routes.
Logan Thackeray: When Zafirah said "take your time," she didn't mean TAKE YOUR TIME.
Gorrik: Look at the data-it's really working! Kralkatorrik is finally going to die!
Taimi: Keep going, Commander! That last crystal should really clobber him!
Caithe: No good. We're trapped!
Varya: Stop our Branded comrades from hurting anyone else!
<Character name>: Varya-thought you were fresh out of tanks.
Varya: What can I say? You inspired us to liberate one.
Varya: If you fail, we all die-and the spirit of revolution dies with us. Go!
Braham Eirsson: 'Bout time, Commander. Let's ring this dragon's bell one last time.
<Character name>: You're on.
Taimi: Uh, we just saw a surge of ZHAITAN'S energy from Kralkatorrik...
<Character name>: Here we go again.
Braham Eirsson: Remember when enemies stayed dead after you killed them? Good times.
Braham Eirsson: Hit the crystal, NOW!
Caithe: We, um, have his attention.
Braham Eirsson: Behind me-I can shield us!
Braham Eirrson: ...Told you I could...
Caithe: I'll help Braham. It's up to you, Commander-go finish this.
<Character name>: I'll break him apart piece by piece if I have to!
<Character name>: You are NOT getting away from me!
<Character name>: (battle cry)
Taimi: You're doing it! He's gonna drop!
After Kralkatorrik withdraws
Rytlock: No. NO.
Sayida the Sly: Kralkatorrik is...he's just...leaving...
Rytlock: What. Happened.
Cananch: Is...everyone in one piece over there?
Cananch: Hello?
Zafirah: I don't understand.
Zafirah: There was a vision.
Zafirah: A promise.
Zafirah: That we'd win.
Braham: Commander... Oh, Spirits, we thought...
<Character name>: Where is she?
Taimi: No, no.
Taimi: No, Aurene!
Taimi: Noooo!
Taimi: (quiet crying)
<Character name>: Caithe... your flowers...
Caithe: She's gone.
Braham: What do we do now?
<Character name>: I don't know.

My story[edit]

The Crystal Dragon loading screen.jpg

I went over the plan of attack and did what I could to reassure our gathered forces that we had Kralkatorrik's own prophecy — his vision of a world without him — on our side. The forge master, meanwhile, informed me that the modifications to the resonance crystals were complete. With everything ready and everyone in place, I joined Aurene and Caithe near the first resonance crystal.

I told Aurene it was time to put our plan in motion. She took off and entered the Mists. Moments later, she came charging back with the Kralkatorrik right behind her. As he pushed his massive head and neck into the forge, Sayida's fleet blasted him with cannon fire, and Canach hammered him with a crushing landslide. These attacks had already stunned Kralkatorrik when Aurene and I struck the next massive blow by activating the first resonance crystal. The blow revealed a weak point where we focused our attack. Taimi's tracker readings confirmed that our plan was working — we were really hurting him.

We fought our way through Kralkatorrik's minion toward the second resonance crystal. Zafirah made a timely entrance with a fierce group of Zaishen she had evidently rounded up to support our efforts. With their help we fought our way to the second resonance crystal and struck another massive blow against Kralkatorrik.

We ran into trouble on our way to the third resonance crystal, only to have unexpected allies appear and lend a hand: Varya and her dredge burst in on a tank they had liberated from the Branded. With their help, we made our way to the third resonance crystal and activated it.

The blow from the final resonance crystal sent Kralkatorrik crashing to the ground. But he wasn't finished yet. As Aurene and I approached, he reared up and fired a deadly blast directly at me. Aurene darted in front of it and fired a blast of her own, causing a massive explosion that knocked me unconscious. Flashes of a wounded Kralkatorrik slinking away filled me with dread. But it wasn't until I regained consciousness and found my way back to the others that I saw the tragic result in full. Aurene was dead, impaled on Kralkatorrik's Brand crystals. As we struggled with shock and grief, Braham wondered out loud what we could possibly do now. I had to tell him the truth — I didn't know.

My story

Notes[edit]

  • When Kralkatorrik charges up for his breath attack after the third crystal, the images and colors of Zhaitan, Mordermoth, and Balthazar surround him and mix in with his own purple colored energy, indicating the incorporation of those respective magical energies in the attack.
