Initial dialogue[edit]

Instructor Ng

One of the most important things you can learn in this dojo is how to defend yourself against the power of Hexes. Many foes use Hexes to limit your abilities, drain your Health and Energy, and so on. The strongest of us learn to successfully combat these techniques. Are you ready to enter my dojo and learn the art of Hex defense?

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: "I am prepared to meet this challenge."
No Decline: "I'll return when I'm ready."
Ask Ask: "Hexes are quite dangerous. You'd best complete this portion of your training if you want to prepare for the challenges ahead."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Lo Sha

So you are ready to learn about Hex defense, are you? Well then, you will engage Instructor Su in combat. She is a master Necromancer with powerful Hexes in her arsenal. Defeat her and survive her Hexes, and you will have passed this test. Here are some skills that will aid you in this task. Good luck.

Lo Sha

Ready... begin!

Lo Sha

Congratulations, my friend. Su is a powerful Necromancer, but you held your own against her nicely. Return to Instructor Ng and he will reward you for your progress.

Reward dialogue[edit]

Instructor Ng

Well done. You have completed your training in Defense Against Hexes. It is an important area of study, especially when facing Necromancers and Mesmers.
