All professions


Speak with Cai to trigger a cinematic, she explains that you need to get Waine drunk, bribe a sergeant to disrupt the fight, and replace the commentator.

Start by spiking the ale, then speak with Waine and give him the spiked drink. Then find the sergeant and bribe him. Return to Cai to trigger the first fight. Afterwards, speak with the announcer to convince him to retire. Following that, speak with Elli to ensure that she becomes the new announcer. Finally, fetch Waine from the cave - fight off the Warg phantasms on the way back, and encourage Waine to return to the ring.

Everything goes a bit nuts in the fight at this stage, with archers firing into the ring, Dredge appearing out of the ground, spontaneous combustion of the area, things turning into moas... Try to stay alive while the hallucinogenics are still having an effect on you, after about a minute or so you will blackout and it will be the morning after. Retrieve Caladbolg from Waine's corpse to end this segment of the mission.

Back in the Omphalos Chamber, you have to choose how to deal with Mazdak. With this decision you will permanently join one of the orders.





Guardian's Pass[edit]

Cai beckons to <character name>.

Speaking with various NPCs before talking to Cai:

Elderly Commentator: Waine! Waine the undefeated! I've been looking forward to this bout for days!
Talk more option tango.png So, you'll be doing the announcing?
Darn tootin' I will be! I wouldn't let Waine down...and he won't let my moneybag down. Heh!
Talk end option tango.png We'll see about that.
Talk end option tango.png Hmm.
Mercenary: Have you seen Waine's sword? It's got some sort of crazy magic on it. The thing's powerful! Oh, why did I agree to this?
Talk end option tango.png Just do your best.
Thraex the Vicious: What're you looking at, shrub? Get out of my way. I'm going to bring the fury!
Talk end option tango.png Good luck!
Villager: OoOOoo, all this fighting makes quaggan want to play, too!
{dialogue icon|exit}} I'm sure you'd do great, little buddy.

Cinematic after speaking with Cai:

Cai: Hey there, Herald. Ready to have a little fun at this villain's expense?
<Character name>: I have no pity for Waine. He stole Riannoc's sword and fled, leaving the firstborn to die. He deserves the worst we can throw at him.
Cai: I like that attitude! We're putting a lot of pieces in motion, so let me explain the setup.
Cai: First, we replace the pitmaster with someone that doesn't like Waine, so all his fights will be hard ones.
Cai: Second, we bribe a Seraph sergeant to have a few archery "misfires" into the pit during Waine's tournament rounds.
Cai: Lastly, we spike Waine's drink so his reflexes are impaired during the fight. If all that doesn't take him down, I don't know what will!
<Character name>: You're tremendously thorough. Are all Order of Whispers agents like that?
Cai: Yes. We have to be. The Order of Whispers is the oldest organization in Tyria. We've known about the dragons the longest, but we've managed to survive.
Cai: That's because we're cunning. You'd fit in very well. If you ever decide you'd like to join, I could put in a good word.
<Character name>: I'll remember that—after we swipe the sword.
Cai: You've got it. Now, c'mon, let's sow some chaos and get home before anyone knows we were here.

Speaking with Cai afterwards:

Cai: Do you need a refresher on our exciting schemes?
Talk more option tango.png What am I spiking Waine's drink with?
A potion we use to help new mesmers reach a trance state to practice magic. It'll make him dizzy and disorientated.
Talk end option tango.png Good. He'll be barely functional.
Talk more option tango.png Tell me more about the Seraph sergeant?
Giles is scum. Put a few coins in his palm, and he'll tell those archers to have some inconvenient "target practice."
Talk end option tango.png Sounds good.
Talk more option tango.png What's wrong with the commentator?
That old cuss is terribly human-biased. If we leave him in there, Waine'll get easy fights.
Talk end option tango.png Okay. I'll see what I can do.
Talk end option tango.png I'm on it. Ready to go!

Passing a villager and his child:

Child: Daddy, look! Walking ferns!
Villager: Hey now, it's rude to stare. Now watch the fighters and let daddy drink his beer.

Interfering with the ale bull:

Ale-Carrying Bull: Several mugs and beer dispensers hang at the pack bull's sides.
(dialogue option only available while holding the Spore Sack)
Talk quest option tango.png Take and fill a mug, then spike it with the spores.
The pack bull eyes you suspiciously.
Charisma Pat the pack bull reassuringly.
Talk end option tango.png Leave the animal alone.
Talk end option tango.png Leave the animal alone.

Talking to Waine:

Waine: Gods, but I'm parched. What are you doing here, you dirty plant? Get out of my way.
(dialogue options only available while holding the Spiked Beer Stein)
Talk quest option tango.png Perhaps a drink would settle your nerves?
Ferocity What did you call me?
A plant. A walking, talking, plant. I don't like your kind, sylvari.
Talk more option tango.png And I don't like yours. Good luck in the tourney.
Thanks. Now, leave me to prepare in peace.
Talk quest option tango.png Peace? I'll bet a drink would settle those nerves.
Talk end option tango.png Don't move, I'll be back.
Talk end option tango.png Maybe I can change your mind with a bit of good will.

Cinematic after offering Waine a drink:

<Character name>: So, you're Waine? I've heard of you. You're a famous gladiator from Lion's Arch. Let me buy you a drink to celebrate your upcoming victory.
Waine: Nah. I don't drink before a fight without a good reason, and I don't drink alone.
<Character name>: Er... well, that's all right. I'll share one with you. Come one, just this once? What's the harm?
Waine: Well, I suppose. Not like you twigs are any threat, after all. Bottoms up!

Speaking to Sergeant Giles:

Sergeant Giles: What can I help you with?
Talk quest option tango.png Actually, maybe I can help you. With some gold...
Help me? Hmph. What are you thinking? (only the option(s) for your current psychology will be available)
Charisma I bet on that scary charr. Be a sweetling and help my wager come true? (Charming)
Just leave it to me and the archers. We'll come up with a nice tide-turner for you.
Talk end option tango.png Lovely.
Ferocity Waine's a liar and a cheat. I'd like some wrong done to him.
Ferocity Waine's a liar and a cheat. I'd like some wrong done to him. (Militant)
A cheat, is he? Well, we can't have that. I'll take your gold, and he'll take an arrow in the foot. Deal?
Talk end option tango.png Fantastic.
Dignity My friend's in love, but Waine won't leave her alone. He needs a lesson. (Honorable)
Dignity My friend's in love, but Waine won't leave her alone. He needs a lesson. (Militant)
Dignity My friend's in love, but Waine won't leave her alone. He needs a lesson. (Noble)
Now that's just not right! My own wife left me for a pit fighter. I'll give him some pain for you, I will.
Talk end option tango.png Excellent.
Talk end option tango.png Let me think a moment.
Talk end option tango.png Nothing, sir. Moving along now.

After the cinematic:

Cai: Psst, over here! The fight's about to start. I saved you a good standing place.
(Cai beckons to <Character name>.)

Speaking with Cai:

Cai: Now, this is exciting. Go join the commentator on the platform. You wouldn't want to miss anything.
Talk end option tango.png Whee...
Elderly Commentator: Go on, then.
Waine: Wargs? Is this some kind of cruel joke?
Elderly Commentator: Good old Waine. Waine the undefeated! That boy's all right by me.

Talking to Cai:

Cai: Well done so far! Waine looked tremendously disoriented. It's a shame the archers aren't as accurate as they are greedy.
Talk quest option tango.png The warg attack worked out, too. They must've been drawn to the blood.
Oh, dear. I didn't see any wargs. Did you drink some of Waine's drug? You must've been hallucinating.
Talk more option tango.png Waine saw the wargs, too. How's that possible?
The potion makes you highly open to suggestion. If someone yells about Canthan ritualist lizards, you'll both start seeing lizards.
Talk quest option tango.png Ugh. Is there an antidote?
There's an antidote, but I'll have to make it—I didn't know you'd actually drink some of the potion!
Talk quest option tango.png Okay. I'll wait right here.
Remember, the old announcer still needs to be replaced. Get that young asura, Elli, to take his place. I'll be back soon.
Talk quest option tango.png I'm on it. Or I will be. Right.
Talk more option tango.png Now that you mention that an iguana over there? (Same response as "Ugh. Is there an antidote?")


Villager (charr): Why'd I bet on that runt? I should have known Waine would win!
Villager (norn): Waine always wins. I told you that three bouts ago.
Villager (charr): Yeah, you're right. I'm just a sucker for the underdog.

Speaking with Cai again:

Cai: Better get yourself cleaned up, <Character name>, and don't forget to replace the commentator!
Talk more option tango.png Remind me about the commentator plan?
Play on his insecurity and he'll step down. Then, get the asura Elli to replace him, and Waine gets harder fights.
Talk end option tango.png I'll see what I can do.
Talk more option tango.png These hallucinations are crazy. Am I going to die?
No, silly. It'll eventually work its way out of your system. It just...takes a while.
Talk end option tango.png Glad I won't be fighting anything!
Talk end option tango.png On my way.

Talking to Elderly Commentator:

Elderly Commentator: Blast it all! I can barely hear my own voice. Victory to Waine! To Waine, I say!
Dignity Maybe a bit of ale will refresh your voice.
Truly, my throat has seen fresher days. Say, is that an ale-carrier bull by the tents? It might have just the thing.
Talk quest option tango.png Don't worry. I'll find a worthy replacement for you.
Ferocity Your eyes are worse than your voice. Give it up and step down.
Some kind of bully, you are! Gods preserve me in my old age. I need a drink...
Talk quest option tango.png I've got a stand-in. All you need do is step aside.
Charisma I have bag[sic] of gold for you, if you let me find a new announcer.
A bribe? Why, I'd never—My word, that is a lot of coin. Right! Victory to ale!
Talk quest option tango.png Good choice.
Talk end option tango.png Right. Victory to...meh.

After convincing the commentator to step down:

Elderly Commentator: I'm too old for this drivel.

Speaking with Elli:

Elli: Cogs and grumblecakes! That old coot has no fire. No gusto! Even my generous ears can't hear his mumblings.
Talk quest option tango.png We need a new announcer. Interested?
You bet I am! I've been dying for someone to ask. I'll set up my commentator hologram!
Talk quest option tango.png Up and at 'em.
Talk more option tango.png Your what?
Commentator hologram. It was my Snaff Prize project at school in Rata Sum. A perfect duplicate of myself, but ten times louder.
Talk quest option tango.png Aha!
Talk more option tango.png Who are you complaining about?
That bookah across the pit always babbles about Waine. "Ohhh Waine, I love you Waine, kill them all Waine." Pah!
Talk quest option tango.png We need a new announcer. Interested? only if you already spoke to Elderly Commentator
Talk end option tango.png I bet I can persuade him to step down. Hang on.
Talk end option tango.png He is something of a drag, isn't he?

Talking to Elli again:

Elli: When that bookah Waine gets his tiny head back here, we can start this thing—Elli style!
Talk more option tango.png "Elli style"?
Loud and raucous! Color commentary like a rainbow anvil falling right on your head. Wait'll you see my hologram in action.
Talk more option tango.png A hologram?
A magical construction of light emitted by this device on my belt. It projects my voice and mimics everything I do.
Talk end option tango.png Very clever. Good luck!
Talk end option tango.png I'm ready. I think.
Talk end option tango.png That's what I like to hear!

Talking to Waine:

Waine: Hey, plant! Hey, plant! Did you see them?
Talk quest option tango.png See them? See what?
Did you see the wargs? Where did they come from?
Talk quest option tango.png The wargs! The wargs? I don't see any... By the Tree—wargs!
I knew it! I knew I wasn't crazy!
Talk quest option tango.png Here, drink this. It'll help.

Approaching Thraex:

Waine: I don't know where the organizers found you, charr, but you're going down all the same!
Thraex the Vicious: The last guy who talked to me found himself talking out of his stomach. If you know what I mean.
Villager: Whoa, that big charr is a scary beast. I hope the new commentator takes bets!
Villager: Why do you do this to yourself? You'll lose that coin as soon as Waine gets in the ring.
Villager: Maybe you're right...but I'll bet anyway. What's the harm in hoping?

As the fight begins:

Elli's Hologram: Welcome, young and old, asura and charr, sylvari and...quaggan? Really? We have a quaggan? Huh.
Elli's Hologram: Welcome, one and all, to an afternoon of extravagant face-punching!
Elli's Hologram: On one side of the pit, we have our undefeated champ, Waine. On the other side, Thraex the Vicious!
Elli's Hologram: How vicious is she? Why, she's so vicious, she'd throw a drowning man both ends of the rope!
Elli's Hologram: She's so vicious, if you kicked her in the heart, you'd break your toe!
Elli's Hologram: She's so vicious... What? All right, all right, fine. Let's see some carnage!
Elli's Hologram: What a surprise! Like fire from the mists, a surprise volley has tippy-tapped their heads. Awww.
Waine: Wh-what's going on? Oozes! Get them off!
Elli's Hologram: The bookah's still fighting! Is this a hall-ooze-ination?
Waine: Back off dredge! You won't take me alive!

After the cinematic depicting the entire arena being engulfed in flame and chaos ends:

Cai: Ah, there you are, bright eyes. C'mon. The sword's waiting.
(Cai kneels.)
Cai: A shame you missed the fight. It was quite exciting, though I suppose you had other things on your mind...
Talk more option tango.png What happened? Where'd everyone go?
Waine was defeated by Thraex, and a riot broke out among the betting folk. Elli calmed them down with threats via her hologram.
Talk more option tango.png Elli? Huh. Do you think her hologram magic would be useful?
With a little help, she could utilize those holograms very effectively. For more than just tournament announcing.
Talk more option tango.png What happened to Waine? I'm surprised no one took the sword.
Talk end option tango.png I think I see how the Order of Whispers operates. Nice.
Talk more option tango.png What happened to Waine? I'm surprised no one took the sword.
Waine fell like a rock. I didn't let anyone take the sword, though. Told them it was cursed, and the superstitious lot fled.
Talk end option tango.png Sneaky. And after today, they have every reason to believe that's true.
Talk end option tango.png Nicely done. Let's get Caladbolg back to the Pale Tree.
Talk end option tango.png That's one way to put it.
Elderly Commentator: Oh, Waine, Waine, Waine! Why did you lose your mind...and my money? Why? Bah!
Talk end option tango.png Better luck next time.
Elli: What an amazing fight. I love this job!
Talk more option tango.png You're really something. it was good to meet you.
Thanks for getting me this opportunity to show my stuff. It was fun!
Talk end option tango.png You'll go far. Good luck!
Talk end option tango.png Glad to hear.
Sergeant Giles: Gods, I have no idea what happened last night. That fighter is dead. I didn't think anyone would die.
Ferocity These things happen during pit fights. Unfortunate, but true.
Yeah, you're right. I'll pull myself together. We need to be in top shape to defend against the centaurs.
Talk end option tango.png Chin up, Giles.
Charisma Waine was babbling about oozes and dredge. He went insane. It wasn't your fault.
You're right. He went round the bend there, at the last. It was a mercy killing.
Talk end option tango.png Exactly. Get yourself together, Giles.
Dignity No one will blame you for what happened. You have my word.
I hope not. It's not the legal issues, it's...maybe I need to stop watching the fights.
Talk end option tango.png You have a soft heart, Giles. Be kind to yourself.
Talk end option tango.png Try not to think about it. See ya.

Moving towards Caladbolg, with Whispers Agents appearing out of nowhere:

Cai: Here's an idea! I'll grab that big mudgy sword for you.

After retrieving Caladbolg (cinematic):

Cai: Fantastic! It worked! I thought we had no chance.
<Character name>: Hang on. Cai? What happened? Where'd the dredge go?
Cai: Dredge... right... wow, that stuff was strong. Don't worry. The good guys won, Waine fell over like a chump, and we've got Caladbolg.
<Character name>: But... the oozes! The oozes! And the dredge!
Cai: Hoo, boy. We'd better get out of here, before you start calling me Queen Jennah and thanking me for the tea.

The Omphalos Chamber[edit]

Upon entering the Omphalos Chamber:

Branthyn: Waine is not the only villain in this tale. We must bring down Mazdak.
Cai: Killing a lich is no easy matter. It will require significant planning.
Iowerth: Every creature has a weakness. Even Mazdak. If we have the knowledge, we will know where to strike.
Trahearne: Welcome, Herald. Join our circle—there is much to explain.

Cinematic with the Pale Tree:

Avatar of the Tree: Greetings, my courageous Herald. I have heard news of your victory. Caladbolg is returned, at last.
<Character name>: It was difficult, but worth it. Waine's been punished at last.
Iowerth: Herald, my research at the Priory proved fruitful. I know where Mazdak the Accursed was buried, and I believe I know his next target.
Iowerth: He's planning to attack a human town known as the "Ascalon Settlement." If we don't stop him, he'll wipe them out.
<Character name>: He's attacking Ascalon Settlement? They're a peaceful area—they have very few defenses. We've got to stop Mazdak!
Branthyn: We have the soldiers. If the Pale Tree would allow Caladbolg to be borne into battle, the Vigil can destroy Mazdak. All it takes is firepower, courage, and a direct assault.
Cai: You always think in a straight line! Look, Mazdak's forces will have to move through the centaur tribes to get to Ascalon Settlement.
Cai: Why not turn them against each other and take down two birds with one stone? The Order of Whispers could do that easily.
Iowerth: I know where Mazdak was buried. The Priory could explore his tomb, get past the traps, and find a way to destroy the lich while he slumbers. It's the logical approach.
Caithe: This lich must be destroyed. For Riannoc. For Tyria.
Caithe: Listen to me. The orders wish you to join them. If you do, they will lend you strength. With their backing, we can defeat Mazdak.
Caithe: It is your destiny to fight Zhaitan. Joining an order will help you achieve that goal. Choose wisely.
Avatar of the Tree: Herald, I place Caladbolg in your care. Choose how to defeat Mazdak, and know that the hopes of the Grove go with you.
Avatar of the Tree: My brave Herald, it is time for you to defeat Mazdak the Accursed, and begin the journey of your Wyld Hunt.
Talk more option tango.png Which order should I pick, Mother?
Fear not. I know you will choose wisely. All three are capable; all three have great respect for you.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you for your trust, Mother.
Talk end option tango.png I'll see the lich destroyed and Riannoc's spirit at rest. I swear it.
Branthyn: My friend, you must join the Vigil. With you among our ranks, we will finally be able to defeat the dragons. I can feel it!
Talk more option tango.png You're so enthusiastic! Tell me, what's the Vigil's plan for Mazdak?
A heavy force of soldiers meets the lich and his Risen head-on. It will take strategy, and courage, but it will be glorious.
Talk more option tango.png And where do I fit in?
You know the most about Mazdak, so you'll command the troops. What do you say?
Talk quest choice tango.png Earnest battle suits me best. I'm ready to join the Vigil.
Talk end option tango.png I need a moment to think.
Talk more option tango.png Can you tell me more about the Vigil?
The Vigil is a military organization. Honor, duty, loyalty—and protection of the people of Tyria. Come, stand with us.
Talk more option tango.png It sounds very noble. But how will the Vigil deal with Mazdak? (Same as "You're so enthusiastic! Tell me, what's the Vigil's plan for Mazdak?" above)
Talk end option tango.png Let me get back to you on that.
Cai: The Order of Whispers could use another cunning agent, ready to fight the darkness. Will you join us?
Talk more option tango.png I'm interested, but first—what about Mazdak?
With a little blackmail, we can have the settlement evacuated. It will only take a small push to get the local centaurs to take over.
Talk more option tango.png How does that help us?
Centaurs are tough, vicious fighters. When Mazdak's undead come, we let the two forces decimate each other—and take on the lich ourselves.
Talk quest choice tango.png Then give the humans back the settlement? Clever. Count me in.
Talk end option tango.png I need to think about this for awhile.
Talk more option tango.png Can you tell me more about being a member of the Order of Whispers?
We may be subtle, but the Order is dedicated. Join us, and discover mysteries, conspiracies, and hidden truths.
Talk more option tango.png Tempting. But tell me, how will you deal with Mazdak? (Same as "I'm interested, but first—what about Mazdak?" above)
Talk end option tango.png That's a lot to take in. Let me think about it.
Talk end option tango.png Give me a little time to think it over.
Iowerth: Herald <Character Name>. The Durmand Priory would welcome your membership. We can offer so much to someone like you!
Talk more option tango.png I'm interested, but let me hear more about your plan first.
The Priory discovered Mazdak's tomb. Although it will be rigged with traps, I'm sure we can find a way through to fight him.
Talk more option tango.png Traps? Define "traps"?
Oh, the usual: spouts of flame, secret passages, pressure-plates on the floor... Do I see a little excitement in your eyes?
Talk quest choice tango.png Absolutely. Sign me up for the Priory and your plan of attack.
Talk end option tango.png Sounds interesting, but let me think about it a bit more.
Talk more option tango.png Can you tell me more about being a member of the Durmand Priory?
Exploration, the recovery of lost knowledge, ancient tombs—really, the Priory's got everything. Join us, Herald?
Talk more option tango.png Interesting. Tell me more about the plan to fight Mazdak. (Same as "I'm interested, but let me hear more about your plan first." above)
Talk end option tango.png Let me consider my options.
Talk end option tango.png I'll get back to you on it.
Caithe: Mazdak has Riannoc's blood on his hands. It's beyond time we ended his foul existence.
Talk end option tango.png It will be done.
Trahearne: The Orders of Tyria compete for your membership? Impressive. I'm certain that, no matter your choice, you will do well.
Talk more option tango.png What about you, Trahearne? Are you going to join an order?
No, I think not. My road is a solitary one. After Mazdak is defeated, I must return to studying Orr. I still have much to learn.
Talk end option tango.png I understand.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you for the confidence, my friend.

If joining the Vigil:

Branthyn: Glorious! You'll be a rising start in the Vigil. We'll handle the formalities after the battle.
Branthyn: Trahearne, will you accompany us on this adventure? Your knowledge of Orrian undead is second to none.
Trahearne: I'm not gonna join your order, but yes, I will lend my aid.
Branthyn: It will be glorious, <Character name>! Your heroism, and the Vigil's strength. We'll make those dragons tremble!
Talk end option tango.png I look forward to it.

If joining the Priory:

Iowerth: The Priory is honored that you'd join us. We'll handle the formalities after the battle.
Iowerth: Trahearne, will you accompany us on this adventure? Your knowledge of Orrian undead is second to none.
Trahearne: I'm not going to join your order, but yes. I will lend my aid.
Iowerth: Excellent! Such fantastic news! Gixx will be so pleased that you're joining us.
Talk more option tango.png Gixx? Who's that?
Steward Gixx is the leader of the Durmand Priory. You'll find him charming—if you can get past the fact that he's an asura.
Talk end option tango.png Noted. thanks for the information.
Talk end option tango.png I look forward to meeting everyone.

If joining the Order of Whispers:

Cai: I'm glad you decided to join the Order of Whispers! We'll handle the formalities after the battle.
Cai: Trahearne, will you accompany us on this adventure? Your knowledge of Orrian undead is second to none.
Trahearne: I'm still not joining your order... but yes. I will lend my aid.
Cai: I knew you'd see it our way! The Preceptors will be happy that their gamble paid off.
Talk more option tango.png Who are the Preceptors?
The Preceptors lead the Order of Whispers. They knew you'd make a great agent—that's why they sent me here in the first place.
Talk end option tango.png I'm glad that they did.
Talk end option tango.png I look forward to meeting the other agents. Thanks.

When not joining the NPC's order:

Branthyn: You're a noble sylvari, Herald. No matter what, it was my honor to meet you.
Talk end option tango.png Mine as well.
Iowerth: Ah, a shame. I would have liked to work with you more. Take care, Herald, and fair fortune to you!
Talk end option tango.png Thank you.
Cai: I'm glad you've chosen wisely, Herald, though I might have wished for another outcome. Good luck to you.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you.

My story[edit]

The Omphalos Chamber loading screen.jpg

Where strength and logic can't prevail, good old-fashioned cunning can win the day. Waine never knew what hit him. The Order of Whispers is thorough, I'll give them that.

My story


Though the dialogue indicates Waine died, he has full health and is just performing the /sleep emote animation
  • The choice made at the end of this mission will lock you into the chosen order for the rest of the personal story.
  • After completing this story step, the Elderly Commentator will have a different dialogue.
  • Elli's dialouge mentions "grumblecakes", a reference to the popular webtoon site, specifically Strong Bad e-mail 98 "stupid stuff".
