Dialogue[edit]

Vigil Crusader at Guardian Stone
Quite a view up here, ain't it? Just about the most godsforsaken patch of land that exists. The intersection of the two cursed events, and the plagues they left behind.
Talk more option tango.png What are you talking about?
That rubble you see to the north is what used to be the Northern Wall. Supposedly to keep the charr out of Ascalon, until they fried it and the city. Only things live there now are the ghosts of Ascalon.
Talk more option tango.png You said two curses?
That dark, lifeless rut of land is the Dragonbrand. Kralkatorrik marking his territory as he flew over the area. Left a little calling card, too, with the gnarled mess that make up the Branded.
Talk more option tango.png Why are you even here? Why not just abandon the place?
The Vigil's here because if we don't fight the infections those cataclysms left in their wake, it'll just keep spreading. And with rumors the Shatterer's on its way, things are only gonna get worse.
Talk more option tango.png The Shatterer?
Kralkatorric's[sic] lieutenant. We suspect it's determined to finish the job its boss only started. Or worse. But unlike that Elder Dragon, we're ready for The Shatterer.
Talk end option tango.png Hope you're right.
Talk end option tango.png Makes sense.
Talk end option tango.png I should let you get back to your watch.
Talk end option tango.png I see. Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png I think I'll turn around and head back down now.
When talking to a sylvari Vigil Crusader at Guardian Stone
Huh, you're new here. Well, if you haven't heard it yet, you will.
Talk more option tango.png Heard what?
Every night starting at sunset, you can hear the Ascalonian ghosts. You'd expect moaning or wailing, but they're singing. And laughing. Singing the same songs and laughing at the same jokes for 250 years.
Talk more option tango.png Singing?
Guess they're soldiers, just like us. Only they've been at it a lot longer. Far as they know, it's just another night of downtime before the next day's battle. Moaning and wailing would be less scary.
Talk more option tango.png And you hear that every night?
Unless the wind's blowing pretty strong out of the west. Then, you hear the Branded creatures. But that's mostly the sound of festering.
Talk end option tango.png I think I'll go talk to someone a little more cheerful.
Talk end option tango.png I'll be sure to keep an ear out for that.
Talk end option tango.png It won't bother me. As long as they're singing something catchy.
Talk end option tango.png Not sure I'll be around long enough to hear much of anything. Good-bye.
Talking to one during Solve the mystery of the haunted marsh with Queen Jennah present
The queen? Here? But surely what she says is true. The charr are evil—we must slay them all.
Talk end option tango.png Does that really make sense to you?
Talking to one during Solve the mystery of the haunted marsh with Zojja present
How can you learn through death? This feels... wrong. Right?
Talk end option tango.png I think you know.
Charr Vigil Crusader at Fort Cadence
The situation's dire. These Orrian undead are relentless. They're gonna be the death of me.
Talk more option tango.png What's the plan?
If the Orrians don't give up, we channel them through this choke point and cut them down like meat spilling from a grinder.
Talk end option tango.png Gruesome, but efficient. Good luck.
Talk end option tango.png You're fighting the good fight. Good luck.
Hylek Vigil Crusader at Fort Cadence
Orr's foul reach is tearing the world apart. We can't allow it victory.
Talk end option tango.png I couldn't agree more. Stay strong.
Human Vigil Crusader at Orvar's Glen
Here to help us re-dead the undead? Make sure you have your stompin' boots on: there are some nasty Risen beasts shambling around out there.
(If in Order of Whispers)
Talk more option tango.png We must end the unending.
We must also initiate the uninitiated. Act natural, but speak softly. Don't want the Vigil to know the Order of Whispers is spying on them. Though I'm sure they guess.
Talk more option tango.png Any information for me?
If I were you, I'd steer clear of Quinatl Deadgrounds. It was a hylek village but has become completely overrun with undead.
Talk end option tango.png Sounds like a challenge.
(If in Vigil)
Talk more option tango.png Any tips for an up-and-coming Vigil hero?
Maybe. Yeah, sure. When fighting undead, watch out for undead brutes. Specifically, watch out for their hammers. They'll send you flying.
Talk end option tango.png Good advice.
Talk end option tango.png I'm ready, believe me.
Charr Vigil Crusader at Orvar's Glen
Killing undead is the only worthy use of a sword. After three long years fighting humans at Ebonhawke, joining the Vigil and taking this post has been like a cleansing of the soul.
Talk more option tango.png How so?
Every day I fought hard to beat back the resistance, I believed in it a little less. By the end, all I wanted was peace. At least with the undead, I can smash them into nothingness and not feel regret.
Ferocity The best battle is one you can throw everything you've got into.
That's true. There's no honor in fighting when your heart's not in it. But a battle for something you believe in, that is what your sword was forged for.
Talk end option tango.png I agree.
Dignity It takes strength to stand back and reevaluate your beliefs.
Sometimes it's necessary. I'm no coward. I've been a soldier all my life. Stepping away from battle is not always a retreat.
Talk end option tango.png That's true.
Talk end option tango.png Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png I can imagine.
(If human)
It's good to see you approach me without fear or anger. I fought the humans of Ebonhawke for years, and I regret it. Here, with the Vigil, I'm able to put my sword to work on behalf of both of our peoples.
Talk more option tango.png You don't fight humans anymore?
No, and with the truce in place, I don't feel as obligated to. I'd considered moving somewhere else where the animosity isn't as strong, but I decided to stay and help hold back the front line against the undead.
Ferocity The best battle is one you can throw everything you've got into. (same as above)
Dignity It takes strength to stand back and reevaluate your beliefs. (same as above)
Talk end option tango.png Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png That's good.
Human Vigil Crusader with Bladed armor in Jaka Itzel
I worked hard for this armor. Couldn't resist showing it off.
Talk more option tango.png Where did you get it?
With the proper currency, you can buy the pieces from this friendly Itzel vendor.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks for the tip.
Talk end option tango.png Not bad.
Human/Norn Vigil Crusader with a chak weapon in Jaka Itzel/Tangled Descent
Can you believe these weapons actually incorporate chak parts?
Talk more option tango.png Where did you get them?
With the proper mastery and currency, you can buy them from this friendly Nuhoch vendor.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks for the tip.
Talk end option tango.png That's impressive.
Norn Vigil Crusader in Dragon's Stand
I worked hard for this armor. Couldn't resist showing it off.
Talk more option tango.png Where did you get it?
With the proper currency, you can buy the pieces off that Order of Whispers keeper there.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks for the tip.
Talk end option tango.png Not bad.
Charr Vigil Crusader at the Southern Forward Camp in Dragon's Stand
We have a shipment of weapons inboud. Go guard them from the Mordrem so we can use them in battle.
Talk end option tango.png You got it!
Talk end option tango.png Not right now.
