 Initial dialogue
- Your aura is radiant. Aided by the spirits of the desert, you can learn any profession, master any skill, but there yet remain untapped reserves of power within you.
- Take my advice, <Character name>, go to the Frozen Forest from the Iron Mines of Moladune, and seek out my sister Sanyi. She will help you unleash this hidden power.
- Accept: "I will find your sister."
- Decline: "I am powerful enough."
- Ask: "I hope you appreciate the insights I have shared with you. If you would further improve your attributes, seek out my sister Sanyi. You will find her in the Frozen Forest, very near the Iron Mines of Moladune. She will show you what power you hold inside."
 Intermediate dialogue
Upon reaching Sanyi:
- Sanyi: "Vanyi always chooses such curious disciples. Let's see if you are as powerful as she thinks. Follow me!"
While walking to destination:
- Sanyi: "Come on now, I'll walk slowly for you."
- Sanyi: "The creatures here know better than to harm me, but you may have to fight."
- Sanyi: "Come now. Try and keep up."
- Sanyi: "If you would kill the enemy more quickly, I would not be forced to wait for you."
- Sanyi: "Hurry. Come this way."
- Sanyi: "Don't give up now. We're getting close."
- Sanyi: "I hope that was not too difficult."
- Sanyi: "I know it must seem odd that I would lead you through so much danger, but I had to see your power for myself."
- Sanyi: "I have lived in these mountains many, many years. Survived dangers you can scarcely imagine."
- Sanyi: "To do this, I have relied on surrounding myself with powerful people."
- Sanyi: "Gather round [sic] and we shall share in each other's strength..."
- "...after I swallow your soul!"
 Reward dialogue
- Stay your hand, <Character name>! Allow me to explain: My father was the famed Agostin of Ascalon's Chosen. Many years ago, he brought us to the mountains to leave behind the strife of guild warfare. But one day we were set upon by that demon, Mragga. It consumed my father and cast a spell on me, binding me to its will. For most of my life, I have been its prisoner, forced to lead the unsuspecting to their doom.
- It always wanted me to seek out the most powerful, for it drew its strength from those it absorbed. But you are a true hero... You were too powerful for the demon, and now I am free. I shall forever be in your debt.
- You do not need to change your secondary profession as long as you have completed any of the "<Profession>'s Path" quests that allow you to do so. Alternatively, if you changed your secondary via a Profession changer, you must then change it again via the Skills and Attributes Panel at least once to any secondary other than your original one (i.e the one that was chosen during A Second Profession).
