Walkthrough[edit]

Behron and Sahreh are standing above the south-west tip of the quarry. At first this is a straight objective to either run to or map travel to Beknur Harbor. Dalz isn't 50 feet from the exit. The argument can seem drawn-out, but it is recommended to stand well-away from the 3 until all have turned hostile. Behron and Sahreh will turn hostile first, so if there are spirits or minions in the area, they will take after those two first. Also of note: Sahreh is a Monk, and if you send minions out of her range, she will chase them to heal them. If you have them, or have a hero who does, send them away before approaching Sahreh.

Use precision to pick off your villain of choice and avoid AoE's to spare nearby Sahreh.

If you accidentally kill someone you didn't want to, traveling to any town and re-entering the area will reset the quest to the point of meeting Dalz on the Cliffs.

If Sahreh dies, and neither Behron or Dalz have turned friendly yet, both Behron and Dalz remain hostile, forcing you to restart the quest to finish it.

If both Behron and Dalz have been killed near simultaneously, the quest will count as failed and you must restart from the meeting.

Note: both turn hostile on a quest trigger.

Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Behron
"Sahreh and I have loved each other since we were children. But when I chose to become a stonecutter instead of farming my family's land, Sahreh's father, Dalz, forebade Sahreh from speaking with me. A year went by, but we couldn't stand being separated and started meeting in secret… until two weeks ago. Sahreh's father saw her sneak out and followed her. When he saw us together, he screamed that Sahreh was dead to him. She hasn't eaten or spoken since. She just stands here staring out to sea. It's killing her. Please, speak with her father for us. He'll listen to a Sunspear."
Yes Accept: "We must not let Sahreh wither and die. I will hasten to her father with this news."
No Decline: "I'm sorry. The Sunspears have firm rules against getting involved in domestic disputes."
Ask Ask: "Dalz lives on Issnur Isles. Surely he will see us when he hears of his daughter's condition. For Sahreh's sake, please beg him to come quickly."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Dalz Jelon: "Behron wasn't good enough for her! He never will be. The only way he'll ever get my daughter's hand is to fight me for it! I will meet with them and tell them myself, if I must. Find me on the Cliffs of Dohjok and then you may take me to where they hide!"

Dalz Jelon: "Behron! You have soiled my daughter's reputation and threatened her honor and that of her family as well. For this, I challenge you!"

Sahreh Jelon: "Father! That is ridiculous!"

Dalz Jelon: "You would be wise to stay out of this, daughter. Honor must be served."

Behron: "I will do what I must to win the hand of my dear Sahreh. What are your terms?"

Sahreh Jelon: "You don't mean to take part in this farce, do you, Behron? Behron?"

Dalz Jelon: "We will engage in armed combat to the death. If you win, you earn the right to Sahreh's hand and my seat at the head of the family table. If I win, Sahreh comes with me and agrees to marry whomever I choose. Although I doubt any would take her after this."

Sahreh Jelon: "Don't do this, Behron. Don't fight him! I love you, but he's my father; my blood. I will defend him."

Behron: "Do what you must, Sahreh. But this is what needs to happen if our story is ever to get an ending. Please forgive me for what I'm about to do."

Dalz Jelon: "Enough. Prepare yourself."

⇒ If Sahreh dies:

Behron: "Nooooooooooooooooo!"

Dalz Jelon: "You killed her! You murderer!"

Reward dialogue[edit]

⇒ If Behron lives:

Behron
"I pray one day Sahreh will forgive me for killing her father. It truly was the only way to resolve the conflict. Dalz's honor never would have allowed for anything less."

⇒ If Dalz lives:

Dalz Jelon
"Sahreh will forget about Behron in time. It should now be painfully obvious how unworthy he truly was. She will see this eventually."
