Approaching Wekesa
Wekesa: Are you the one they refer to as commander?
If asura, human, norn or sylvari:
<Character name>: I am.
If charr:
<Character name>: What's it to you?
Wekesa: Tarir thanks you for returning part of Glint's legacy to its rightful place.
Wekesa: Your party was here while you were in the trials, but they felt an urgency to move on.
Wekesa: They asked me to aid you in locating them.
Wekesa: The little one said she left you something "that will blow your mind" due east of here.
<Character name>: Then I'll head east. Much appreciated.
First disk
Taimi Hologram: I hope you find this, Commander! We went ahead, following Zojja, Logan, and Trahearne's path.
Taimi Hologram: I can't wait to hear what happened with the egg! We saw a light, and then the city went nuts!
Taimi Hologram: Please remember every minute facet of what happened! I'm going to need to hear it in excruciating detail. For instance, was the—
Taimi Hologram: Uh, okay, Rytlock is signaling me to wrap it up, so...
Taimi Hologram: I have a few of these holo-disks left.
Taimi Hologram: Just follow them south through that cavern and you'll catch up with us in not time! Happy trails!
Second disk
Taimi Hologram: Hi! We're headed that way... Scruffy, are you recording?
Taimi Hologram: Are you sure? Why isn't the light on?
Taimi Hologram: Better erase this one and start over. Just start over.
<Character name>: Hmmm... Not as informative as I would have hoped.
Third disk
<Character name>: Another one of Taimi's messages...
Taimi Hologram: Okay, so we seem to have wandered into a den of vinetooths... Teeth? Tooths or teeth? Anyway, super dangerous!
Taimi Hologram: So, you know, watch your back. We saw some campfires south of here, so we're headed—
Taimi Hologram: Uh-oh! Is that—? Okay, gotta go!
Fourth disk
Norn Savage: Pssst! Pssst!
<Character name>: Who is that? Show yourself!
Norn Savage: Take is easy, take it easy! And be quiet!
<Character name>: What are you doing out here?
Norn Savage: What are YOU doing out here?!
<Character name>: Searching for a holo-disk; looks like a giant asura.
Norn Savage: Oh. One of these majestic creatures took it up into that tree.
<Character name>: A vinetooth? Majestic? Those things are horrific killers.
Norn Savage: No! They're beautiful! My partner and I came out here to commune with them.
Norn Savage: They've accepted me; I've even petted one!
<Character name>: Sounds like a great way to get yourself killed.
Norn Savage: Nonsense. Roy said they'd never hurt me...outside of the times they've already hurt me.
Norn Savage: Took a pretty big chunk out of my leg...
<Character name>: Where's your partner?
Norn Savage: Oh, they killed him quick.
<Character name>: Okay. Good luck with that. Thanks for the info.
Fifth disk
Taimi Hologram: Still on the trail, but Scruffy's picking up some odd readings over that way.
Taimi Hologram: I'm trying to convince everyone to investigate.
Taimi Hologram: So far my efforts have been unsuccessful. Tribune Killjoy over there, am I right?
Taimi Hologram: Hopefully you killed a vinetooth or two on your way. If so, good job! If not, it's right behind you!
Taimi Hologram: Kidding. Maybe? See you soon.

My story[edit]

Auric Basin loading screen.jpg

After securing the egg, I received a message that my friends were looking for me. Taimi left some holograms in the jungle pointing me in the right direction. Unfortunately, a vinetooth was dogging their progress. I found and killed the predator before it could do them any harm. Taimi's final holo-disk allowed me to catch up with them.
