Initial dialogue[edit]

Scholar Chago
"I have a theory about the plague, but I cannot be certain until I have performed some experiments. If you are still willing to help me, I would appreciate if you could travel back to Fahranur and gather spores from the insects that live there. I think they may have had more to do with the plague than I previously suspected. If you can get me at least 10 spores, I should have enough to perform my experiments."
Yes Accept: "Bug squashing time!"
No Decline: "Are you kidding me? I'm not going back there!"
Ask Ask: "Please, go to Fahranur and gather 10 scarab spores from the insects that have infested the place. I need them for my experiments."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Scholar Chago
"Chuusi! Excellent! These seem to be in good condition."


  • It's a good idea to do the quest Defender's Choice at the same time, since the insects reached from the Jokanur Diggings entrance is near the targets for Defender's Choice.
