Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Armin Saberlin
"Sir Tydus wants you to take on a second profession before you face the Charr, right? I think he is right to say so. A second profession gives you access to all of the skills and most of the attributes of that profession. This is a big decision, not to be taken lightly. You might wish to see trainers for several professions and learn a little something about them before settling on one.
Not just any trainer can teach you a second profession, but I can direct you if need be."
Yes Accept: "I'd like a second profession."
No Decline: "Sounds like too much trouble."
Ask Ask: "There are trainers for every profession throughout Ascalon. I can give you directions if need be. Which profession are you interested in?"

Note: The "ask" dialogue above and the following responses are the same, no matter if you talk to Armin or any of the profession trainers throughout pre-Searing Ascalon and it's environs.
