Ambient dialogue[edit]

Citizen: (sneeze) (sneeze) (sneeze) Ooh. There must be a cat nearby.
Citizen: (whistle)
Citizen: And to think, other races have been warring a hundred times longer than I've been alive.
Citizen: Don't let it discourage you.
Citizen: Every day, I wonder if the Wyld Hunt will call me.
Citizen: He was called on a Wyld Hunt last season. He completed his calling, and now he waits.
Mist Warrior: I've seen much, but never such amazing things as what I saw in the Mist War.
Citizen: I know you. Where have you been? I haven't seen you around in a long time.
Adventurer: I've been away, traveling across the land.
Citizen: Did you see anything interesting on your travels?
Adventurer: It was all interesting, from the centaurs of the west to the Dragonbrand in the east.
Citizen: What was your favorite of all the places you saw on your voyage?
Adventurer: Lion's Arch. It's an enormous, glorious city with a fascinating array of citizens.
Citizen: What was your least favorite place?
Adventurer: Hoelbrak, a city of norn, is covered in ice. It sapped my strength to be so cold all the time.
Citizen: Did you bring back any mementos?
Adventurer: I have gold coins from Lion's Arch. The market there is incredible.
Citizen (1): I feel the call, but the thought of leaving the Grove both thrills and terrifies me.
Citizen (2): We can learn a great deal from the Pale Tree's long roots and arching boughs.
Citizen (2): Though it stretches its limbs far overhead, it remains rooted, and it bends so as not to break.
Citizen (1): I want to go spy on them. What harm can it do?
Citizen (2): I'm willing to go, just not during the day. The hylek are most active then.
Citizen (2): We're strong in the dark, and you know it. We're both of the Cycle of Night.
Citizen (1): I know, but I'm afraid all we'll get to see are sleeping hylek. How boring!
Citizen: It's so exciting to be here at the hub of it all! To see it all in one place, like Tyria's a spring blossom, opening its petals before me.
Citizen (1): Let's grab a nectar together later, okay?
Citizen (2): I'll look forward to it.
Citizen: My quest tugs at my heart.
Citizen: Only the most twisted plants grow in darkness, but grow, they do.
Citizen: No matter what, don't lose this land.
Citizen: Smell that? There's a hint of mint in the air.
Citizen: Something tells me we should work as a team.
Citizen (1): Somewhere out there, someone has more information on Ventari. I will find it if it's the last thing I do.
Citizen (2): Your quest is bold and important. I salute you.
Citizen: They say that failure makes you stronger.
Mist Warrior (human) approaches from north.
Mist Warrior (sylvari): The greatest adventure ever is under their noses. How can people just keep walking, talking, eating and sleeping?
Mist Warrior (human): Not everyone appreciates the opportunity to travel to the Mists. Others have no interest in making war.
Mist Warrior (sylvari): They haven't learned enough about the world yet to understand that it need to be defended. They'll be back.
Mist Warrior (human) heads back north.
Mist Warrior: We must all do our part to protect our world. Come. Fight beside us in the Mist War.
Warden (1): It looks like rain!
Warden (2): You always say that.
Warden (1): They've got a fresh batch of cinnamon bread back at the meeting house.
Warden (2): I thought I sensed contentment.
Warden (1): Shhhh. Listen. Feel.
Warden (2): What?
Warden (1): Ah, there it is. The moment when night gives up its dominion, and day opens its eyes upon the world.
Warden (1): Day turns into night, Mister Morning Glory. Time to close your petals and sleep.
Warden (2): And you, Sir Jasmine, bloom at night, don't you? So, you must be here to relieve me.
Warden (1): (laughter) That I am. The light of the moon is my illumination on the Dream.
Warden (2): Dream well, then.
