The Familiar-Looking Hero has unique dialogue for each profession.

Warrior Warrior: "So I've got this great idea for a skill combination, first I hamstring them with a sword, then I cast Firestorm while they can't leave. What do you think? I just need to find someone who can teach me Hamstring and I'm set!"

Ranger Ranger: "You know, I got this great Charm Animal skill from my trainer earlier, but I haven't been able to charm a pet yet. Those stupid bears keep interrupting me."

Monk Monk: "I hope you guys don't mind, but I'm a smiting Monk"

Necromancer Necromancer: "I really don't get people who train to be anything other than a Necromancer. I figure once I get three other Necromancers, we can just do everything ourselves."

Mesmer Mesmer: "When am I gonna learn a Balthazar-blasted interrupt?"

Elementalist Elementalist: "Flare is the best skill ever, isn't it? I don't think I'll ever find something to replace it."

Assassin Assassin: "How did I get here from Cantha? Shadow Step accident."

Ritualist Ritualist: "This is the last time I listen to a spirit for directions back to the monastery, I can't believe I ended up on another continent!"

Paragon Paragon: "Getting here from Elona was easy. Did you think the Paragon wings were just for show?"

Dervish Dervish: "You came through the Asuran time portal, too? Can you take me back when you leave? First Spear Dehvad is probably wondering where I am."


Idle quotes[edit]

"You know there are only five gods right now? I bet I'd make a good sixth god."
"Sigh. I wonder if I'll ever get to level 20."
"One of these days, I'm gonna do something important, you'll see."

Battle quotes[edit]

"Just be thankful I haven't learned all my profession's skills yet."
"I hope this doesn't ruin my Survivor title."
"Ugh! I knew I shouldn't have taken these skills. I don't suppose we can go back to an outpost?." [verification requested]

  • The six core professions will all be wearing Ascalon armor regardless of their campaign of origin. Factions professions appear with Shing Jea armor and Nightfall professions with Istani armor.
