Quest information[edit]




  • Ordash is easily found by mapping to the Kodash Bazaar and speaking to him near the fountain.
  • Archivist Mijir is in the library north of Mihanu Township.
  • General Poruk is by a shrine, just to the east side of the Kodash Bazaar, head out of the south-east corner of the town.
  • Hervahn the Vexing is just to the south-east of Honur Hill in Prince Bokka's palace.

It's worth noting that all these npcs can be reached and spoken to without the need to fight any creatures - getting to Mijir may need some fancy footwork to avoid aggroing the groups along the way, but it is possible.


Initial dialogue[edit]

Lieutenant Murunda

"Defeating the heket leader will help keep the Citadel secure, but we will need more troops if we are to counter Warmarshal Varesh. Ahmtur has some old friends...former soldiers who have retired or sought other work. If you visit them, perhaps they can secure us some reinforcements?"
Yes Accept: "Sounds fascinating."
No Decline: "Sounds mind-numbing."
Ask Ask: "Go meet with some of Ahmtur's old friends. Maybe they can provide us some additional aid."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]


"Ahai! I am a merchant by trade, but I'm afraid I am out of stock at the moment. What's that? You come from Ahmtur the Might? Heavens! Of course I will help! I know of some mercenaries who work on retainer. I have some armor and weapons salted away for a rainy day. Yes, yes. Tell him I will be glad to lend a hand."

Archivist Mijir

"Ahmtur? Oh, yes, I've known him for years. Of course I'll be willing to help. I've got a library of the finest military writings in Elona here. Ahmtur wrote a few of them himself. And I know of a few young hotspurs who would give their left hand to serve under Ahmtur the Mighty! Shoo, now! I have a lot do do!"

General Poruk

"Ahmtur is still alive? Well, deep-fry me and throw me to the heket! And a prince now, of all things? He served under me back in the day, a long time ago. Yes, of course I'll help! This old war horse still knows a thing or two. And I know of more than a few others who would come running if Ahmtur the Mighty calls. I will send my support to him at once."

Hervahn the Vexing

"Why yes, I did serve with Ahmtur the Mighty...back before I took to the riskier profession of playing to these unappreciative audiences. The skree harpies are civilized compared to the critics! Of course I'd be glad to help. I can't go myself, but I know a few talented and young Mesmers who would rather be fighting Varesh than listening to Prince Bokka's latest magnum opus. No, no, go tell him that he shall have his reinforcements. May Lyssa smile upon him!"

Reward dialogue[edit]

Lieutenant Murunda

"<Player name>, you've done well! Reinforcements and supplies are pouring into the Citadel. Soon we will be able to go toe-to-toe with Varesh and her hellish allies. On behalf of the prince, I thank you."
