Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Eurus
"You look somewhat heroic...perhaps you can help me? I met this nice fellow in Cantha named Bahsang. He sold me a blessed cowbell that actually wards off the plague when you use it! Handy, no? I thought so, too. Well, as I was coming back from Cantha by way of the coast, a group of kappa jumped me from out of nowhere. I'm no warrior...I admit that fear overtook me, and as I fled, I dropped my precious cowbell into a bed of blue oysters under the shadow of Mount Qinkai. What will I do if the plague returns? Without that blessed cowbell I have no way to protect myself!"
Yes Accept: "You will have your cowbell, Eurus. I swear it."
No Decline: "No, seriously...who put you up to this?"
Ask Ask: "Please, Cantha is rife with plague and the only inoculation is my blessed cowbell! I lost it somewhere by the blue oysters that litter the beach near Mount Qinkai."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Eurus
"Thank goodness you recovered that cowbell! Your absence gave me time to think...perhaps I'm being selfish, keeping this power for myself. I have never seen anything like this cowbell, and I do myself and every member of my clan a disservice if I don't use it to protect as many of us from the plague as possible. It is often said among my people that a great reaver guides us all to the next life, digging through the sky of jade and leading the dead to the great, wide sea in the stars. With this cowbell, I will show them that we have no need to fear the reaver."

Notes[edit]

Anomaly Anomaly. The quest star and the actual location of the Blue Oysters do not always line up.

Trivia[edit]

  • "More Cowbell" is a reference to a Saturday Night Live skit with Christopher Walken. One of the lines from the skit was "I got a fever, and the only prescription...is more cowbell!"; similarly, Eurus believes the cowbell is his only protection from the plague. The "blue oysters" one must search through are a reference to the band name Blue Öyster Cult and the final line of the reward dialogue refers to the title of the Blue Öyster Cult song involved in the skit, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper". The lines "perhaps I'm being selfish" and "I do myself and every member of my clan a disservice" parody Will Ferrell's impassioned speech near the end of the skit.
