Initial dialogue[edit]

Instructor Ng
"Within the monastery we are safe, but in order to survive outside these walls, you must learn to defend yourself. In this training exercise, you will be attacked by two of our instructors: Weng Gha and Jinzo. I will provide you with defensive skills; use them to survive their attacks for two full minutes.
By accepting this quest you will abandon other advanced training quests and put yourself into a separate training arena from the rest of your party, if applicable."
Yes Accept: "Sounds straightforward enough."
No Decline: "I'm not sure I can survive for two minutes."
Ask Ask: "There are many different defenses available to you. Go and show off your skills to Weng Gha and Jinzo in the Dojo."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Weng Gha
«name», I hope you are ready with your defensive skills. Jinzo and I are going to force you to use them."
Weng Gha
When Gha: "This apprentice does not look very tough to me, Jinzo. Perhaps we should take it easy."
Jinzo: "We shall see, Weng Gha. This one may have more skill than you think."
Weng Gha: "Your challenge begins now. Survive for two minutes."
Jinzo: "Good! Keep going; you are doing well."
Weng Gha: "Excellent work! You are almost there...just a little while longer..."
Jinzo: "You have done well, [Character Name]. Return to Instructor Ng to receive credit for this course."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Instructor Ng
"Well done. You have mastered the art of defense. This skill is especially useful when battling opponents, such as Warriors, who use melee attacks."
