Objective Notes




A Simple Task


Your aid in the fight against Eparch and his meat army has been an unexpected boon (if Dagda and I had made a bet, I'd be eating well tonight). In these moments of reprieve, I could use some help with an...odd task. A strange sensation pulls at my gut. Like a memory, waiting to surface.

Come find me at the tower and warm your hands by the forge for a bit. I'll be much less cryptic once I've collected my thoughts.


After talking to Lyhr

Lyhr: A ward scout spotted a relic of mine in Kryptis hands. I...I need it back.

After returning to Lyhr

Talk more option tango.pngI found your... Lantern?

First time seeing it since before the Kryptis invasion.
Never figured out how it works, but I can feel this...echo. An old memory trying to surface.
My responsibilities in the tower have me tied up. You take it. Do some digging.
What do you say? ready to do another favor for your favorite wizard?
Talk more option tango.png Got any leads?
Forgemaster Elrik, who’s overseeing operations in Droknar’s Light, may have some insights as an expert smith. However, I’d suggest you help out around the forge there first to gain his favor.
Tick green.png I'll see what I can find.
A hero after my own heart.
Talk end option tango.png When I have more time.

After defeating the dwarf before they are possessed

Talk collection option.pngCan you help me with something, Elrik?

Well, you helped me, so I suppose I’m obliged. What do you need?
Talk more option tango.pngHe asked me to look into this lantern of his. Any ideas?
It’s dwarven. No visible fuel source. Could be arcane, or maybe just decorative. If there’s history there, I don’t see it.
Talk end option tango.png Dwarven history? Time to pay Ogden a visit.

At Ogden

Ogden Stonehealer: Commander! What brings you my way? Not more dragon trouble, I hope? Heh.

Talk more option tango.png You’re in good spirits.

Been busy helping Gixx here after the end of the dragon cycle. Tyria’s got plenty of other mysteries to solve.
Talk more option tango.pngSpeaking of mysteries, do you recognize this lantern?
Would you look at that…I’ve not seen a Waylit lantern in quite some time.
The Waylits are a family of scouts, trackers, and delvers. Each receives a lantern as a rite of passage into adulthood.
A few Waylits remain, out scavenging what’s left of their homes with the other Deldrimor.
In fact, I sent a Priory escort with my own kin to investigate ruins to the south.
Here, take this.
It’s a parcel for one of the Priory members. Deliver it and speak to the dwarves. They may be of some help.

At Novice Taeya

Novice Taeya: Please tell me you’ve come to relieve me of my post? I know these ruins are important to the Deldrimor, but it’s an awful assignment.

Talk more option tango.png I’m here for the dwarves, but Ogden asked me to deliver this.

Thanks, I guess. Speak to them if you like. They’re hankering for a dive into the river for bits and baubles.
Talk end option tango.png I will, thanks.

At Timin Blastburl the first time.

Timin Blastburl: Hey! You look capable. Klement said he’d be organizing a dive soon and, well…we don’t have those fancy rebreathers.

Talk more option tango.png What are you searching for?

Family heirlooms, trinkets kept in hidden compartments that a grog-sloshed pirate would miss. Whatever’s worth some coin.
Talk more option tango.png Like this lantern?
Exactly like that. How’d you get your mitts on such a piece?
Talk more option tango.png I’m looking for the Waylits.
The Waylits, huh? Tell you what, help me find something from the river ruins, and I’ll point you in the right direction.
Talk end option tango.png Fair enough!
Talk more option tango.png I’m looking for the Waylit family. Got any leads?

At Timin Blastburl after completing the finding dwarven artifacts event

Talk more option tango.png I found these trinkets.

They’re fine pieces! You earned your information. As for the Waylits, find Von. He was cache-hunting just north of Hoelbrak, in some cave. Take this bauble to him and he’ll steer you right.
Talk end option tango.png I’m off to Snowden Drifts, then.

At Von Delverunner

Von Delverunner: ‘Fraid you’re out of luck, stranger. Cache is picked clean.

Talk more option tango.png You Von? Timin said to trade this for some information.
Don’t need a bribe to do right by a fellow traveler. What do you need?
Talk more option tango.png I heard you’re a friend of the Waylit family.
Aye. Last I spoke with Riley Waylit, her party was looking to explore some abandoned hall near dredge territory to the south. The Priory have researchers looking into those ruins too, I’ve heard.
Talk end option tango.png Then that’s my next destination. Thanks!

Dwarven Journal

It took two days, but we figured out how to bypass the magical seal on the door without needing the key. Our people built this, after all.

Tiley and Hewn haven’t returned from the granite Citadel yet, but I don’t see the harm in the rest of us poking around the entry hall while we wait.

Jovers said he heard scratching further in, chittering. Hall has a pest problem, sounds like. Nothing the three of us can’t handle.

At Riley Waylit

Riley Waylit: Say, aren’t you that “Pact Commander”? What brings you all the way out here?

Talk more option tango.png You Riley? I found this journal. Your friends found a skelk nest.

Blast it! Those impatient… (sighs) Thanks for letting me know. We weren’t kin or anything, but… Well, no sense in going back to get myself killed.
Talk more option tango.png The journal isn’t the only reason I’m here. Is this lantern yours?
Where did… I said he’d regret lending that half-smelted heretic his lantern.
Rand, my allegedly wiser cousin, went off in search of someone we knew from long ago: “Liar,” “Layer,” “Lyhr.” Who cares?
Don’t know where either of them are, but you look like you have questions, and I owe you for the trouble.
Ask away, traveler.
Talk more option tango.png Who was “Lyhr” to you?
No one special. An orphan from Grooble’s Gulch, I think? Taken in by his aunt after his parents died.
Talk more option tango.png Anything else?
Eh…Rumor was he could create facets of himself, like Glint. Pure gossip if you ask me.
Talk back option tango.png I have other questions.
Talk more option tango.png Lyhr was a heretic? How?
He wasn’t Stone Summit, if that’s your worry. Lyhr would butt heads with our priests over prophecies like the legends of the Rubicon.
Talk more option tango.png So...?
So, the blowhard left in search of a “solution.” And for what? We found the tome years later and took the rite; the rest was history.
Talk back option tango.png I have other questions[sic].
Talk more option tango.png How does the lantern work?
Heh. It’s simple. Say the full name of a Waylit, and the light ignites. A blue light means they’re alive.
Talk back option tango.png I have other questions.
Talk more option tango.png What now? Do I leave the lantern with you, or...?
Keep it. I’ll tell Rand I left it with the famed Pact Commander. If he wants it enough, he’ll find you.
Talk end option tango.png Maybe later.

After returning to Lyhr

Talk more option tango.png Your lantern belongs to a dwarf of the Waylit family. Rand.

How… Are...are you sure?
Talk more option tango.png I met his cousin; sounds like he’s looking for you, and now probably me.
It’s... You know when the first sunbeam breaks at dawn, and its warmth feels unreal at first? That’s what this name is to me.
Somehow, I knew I’d hear it again. Rand Waylit...
So that’s how it turns on. What a calming blue.
Probably better if you take the lantern, for now, Wayfinder. If Rand is looking for us, you’re easier to find.
