Walkthrough[edit]

Miyuki is just south of The Marketplace, battling a single Jade Brotherhood member. Help her defeat and interrogate him. Search for more Jade Brotherhood Members and Peasants in Wajjun Bazaar. Depending on the NPC you speak to, some of the options will increase the progress bar more than the other options, while other options won't increase the progress bar at all. Jade Brotherhood Members have a higher effect on the bar than the peasants with one exception. If you ask Peasant 1, "Who's your daddy?" he tells you his father is Yon Ruino. Speaking to Yon Ruino will greatly increase the bar's progress. After you have found enough evidence, head towards the Jade Brotherhood headquarters on the dock north of Wajjun Bazaar. Defeat Meijun's party to finish the quest. Make sure that Miyuki follows you while you gather information, or you will not be able to finish the quest, as Miyuki tends to get stuck between the NPCs and gets left behind.

The most efficient way of gathering evidence:

  • Head to Miyuki at the start
  • Continue past her to defeat and speak to Jade Brotherhood Member 1, picking the first option.
  • Head directly west to speak to Peasant 1, picking the third option.
  • Retrace your steps northeast until Yon Ruino is visible and speak to him.
  • Head west along the waterfront and speak to Peasant 5, picking the first option. This will be enough to fill the bar in Normal Mode.
  • For Hard Mode, continue west along the dock and speak to Jade Brotherhood Member 5, choosing option two, which will be enough to fill the bar.
  • From here, continue on as normal to defeat Meijun and his group.

Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Lei Jeng
"I heard about what happened on Mount Qinkai... It's despicable that the Jade Brotherhood would use your friends to get at you like that, but it's not particularly unusual for them. Unfortunately for me, not everyone is as levelheaded as you are. One of my subordinates, Imperial Guard Natsumi, is a relative of one of the students you rescued and has decided to take it upon herself to go and seek revenge on the ones responsible. She doesn't seem to understand attacking the Brotherhood again like this will just cause more acts of retaliation.
"Natsumi's partner has volunteered to track her down. If you're up to it, I'd like to ask you to head to Wajjun Bazaar, and check on Miyuki's investigation."
Yes Accept: "We've got to stop this before it spirals out of control."
No Decline: "But I love revenge!"
Ask Ask: "Miyuki is in Wajjun Bazaar looking for her partner, Natsumi. If you want to help, you should head over there."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Upon appraching Miyuki:

Miyuki: "Tell me what you know, scoundrel!"
Jade Brotherhood Member: "Ha! Like anyone would listen to someone like you!"
Jade Brotherhood Member: "Uh-oh! Reinforcements? I'm outta here!"
Miyuki: "Wait! Get back here!"
Miyuki
"Argh! Another one that ran off before I could get any useful information out of him. If only Natsumi were here, she's much more intimidating."
⇒ "Lei Jeng sent me to help."
Miyuki: "Captain Lei sent you to help? I appreciate it. I can't say I've made much progress so far."
Miyuki: "Natsumi is looking for a Jade Brotherhood member known as Maijun, Vengful Eye. He got that name due to his penchant for revenge attacks whenever the Am Fah attacked him or one of his friends. And, as you already know, he is not afraid to apply his techniques to others outside the Am Fah."
Miyuki: "We need to track her down before she rattles the hornet's nest for a second time. Let's ask around the bazaar and see if anyone has seen either Natsumi or Meijun. The folks around here are usually pretty cooperative, but we may have to rough up some Jade Brotherhood if we want to get answers from them."
<Party leader>: "Fortunately for you, fighting Jade Brotherhood is one of my many talents."

Dialogue 1:

<Party leader>: "Can you tell me anything else about Meijun? I've only met him once before."
Miyuki: "Then you probably know enough. He has an unhealthy obsession with the idea of revenge. To him, there's no slight small enough to avoid his wrath."
Miyuki: "Since the Ministry assault against their leaders, his acts of revenge have gotten even more violent. I shouldn't have to say this, but not everyone has been as lucky as Kisai and her friends."
<Party leader>: "In that case, I'll make sure this is the last time."

Dialogue 2:

<Party leader>: "How did you end up being partnered with someone like Natsumi?"
Miyuki: "That was Captain Lei's decision actually; I'm not sure what he was thinking when he assigned us. Perhaps he wanted me to look after Natsumi's short temper, or perhaps he wanted me to learn from her exemplary fighting skills."
Miyuki: "It's funny actually. I actually almost arrested Natsumi on her first day of work. She had knocked over a fruit stand in her rush to pick up her armor from the smith, and I was on duty nearby. I made her help clean it up before I let her go, and she was late to report in as a result."
Miyuki: "Captain Lei was pretty angry. But Natsumi and I have become good friends and partners since then."
Miyuki: "It's not that things have gotten better. It's that things are getting worse somewhere else. Somewhere we can't protect as easily."

Dialogue 3:

<Party leader>: "It feels like the streets are calmer than usual."
Miyuki: "Well we have the Ministry of Purity to thank for that I suppose. The Imperial Guard has never had the manpower to stop all the gangs that roam around in a city this big, so having the extra support certainly helps."
<Party leader>: "You don't sound very convinced of that."
Miyuki: "I... I guess I'm not. It looks better on the outside, and we've had to deal with less outright incidences of violence lately, but that's not the whole story."
Miyuki: "Something is brewing behind the scenes here. The citizens I've seen lately all seem apprehensive of something but won't talk to us about it. Besides that I've noticed increased reports of robbery and kidnappings lately."

Dialogue 4:

Miyuki: "Natsumi can be a handful at times, but this is the first time that she's directly gone against the captain like this. She's always been very protective of Kisai and Jun, though."
<Party leader>: "I can understand her anger; after all, it seems like this is partly my fault. But Lei is right that we need to stop her before this gets worse."
Miyuki: "I agree, let's find her as quickly as possible."

After completing the investigation:

Miyuki: "Alright, I think we've got enough information. Let me see your map. Based on their testimony, I think we should head here next."

Upon approaching Meijun, Vengeful Eye:

Natsumi: "Meijun! I'm here to bring you to justice!"
Miyuki: "Natsumi, wait!"
Natsumi: "Miyuki, what are you doing here?"
Meijun, Vengeful Eye: "Who do you people think you are? Ah wait, I know you, you're the sister of that student I captured. She was crying about something like that when I left her in that cave to die. I see you've gotten this so-called hero to track me down."
Natsumi: "Why you..."
Meijun, Vengeful Eye: "Vengeance is an irresistible fruit, is it not? You may kill me here, but just remember that your actions make you no better than us!"
<Party leader>: "No, it is different. We are here on behalf of those who cannot fight for themselves; the Jade Brotherhood only acts in its own self-interest and greed."
Meijun, Vengeful Eye: "Dress it up words however you want, but I can see the anger in your eyes as well. You still seek vengeance, so come! See if you can take it!"

When Meijun, Vengeful Eye has been defeated:

Meijun, Vengeful Eye: "Arrgh! Do it! Kill me! But remember, my death will only continue the cycle of vengeance!"
Natsumi: "I've been waiting a long time for this."
Miyuki: "Natsumi!"
Natsumi: "..."
Natsumi: "No, you're right, Miyuki. This stops here."
Natsumi: "Meijun, Vengeful Eye, by the authority of the Dragon Empire, I hereby place you under arrest for kidnapping, attempted murder, and twenty-three counts of other criminal activity."
Meijun, Vengeful Eye: "This isn't over, hero. You can't stop what you started when you attacked us."
<Party leader>: "No, but I can stop you."
Miyuki: "Thanks for helping me, <Party leader>. Natsumi and I will take this guy to the prisons before apologizing to Captain Lei."
Natsumi: "Oh, that reminds me! I got this note from one of the Jade Brotherhood I was "questioning" on the way here. Could you take it to him? It seemed pretty important."

Investigation dialogue[edit]

Jade Brotherhood Member 1
"That smarts; what did you come here for?"
⇒ "Tell me what you've done with the imperial guard who was down here or I'll..." (Progress: 35% NM, 25% HM)
"We haven't done anything to her, I swear! She keeps coming down here looking for someone, but I don't know who Meijun even is! I saw her going to the west side just a while ago!"
⇒ "Where's Meijun, Vengeful Eye! Tell me quick or else!" (Progress: 15% NM, 12% HM)
"Do I look like a scribe? I don't keep detailed records of where all our members are. You could check around the docks maybe?"
⇒ "Have you ever danced with Dhuum in the pale moonlight?" (No progress)
"Is that some kind of code or something?"
Jade Brotherhood Member 2
"Fine, what do you want?"
⇒ "Have you seen an imperial guard pass by here lately?" (Progress: 20% NM, 15% HM)
"I see a lot of imperial guards, mostly getting in my way. I think the one you're looking for is heading north."
⇒ "What's the scoop on Meijun, Vengeful Eye?" (Progress: 10% NM, 8% HM)
"I hear he's been looking for some Am Fah recently, probably for revenge. I don't know where he is thought."
⇒ "What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen moa?" (No progress)
"Ascalonian or Krytan? No, wait a minute, moas are flightless birds!"
Jade Brotherhood Member 3
"Put your weapons away! I'll cooperate!"
⇒ "I'm looking for an imperial guard, have you sen her?" (Progress: 35% NM, 25% HM)
"That bullheaded woman attacked me for no reason! I fed her a line about the docks, so the gullible wench probably is over there now."
⇒ "Do you know a Brotherhood member named Meijun?" (Progress: 15% NM, 12% HM)
"Again? What's with you people and Meijun? I just joined up a week ago, I barely know the guy."
⇒ "Why do you fight?" (No progress)
"Uh, because you fought me? Is this a trick question?"
Jade Brotherhood Member 4
"Stop hitting me and I'll tell you whatever you want!"
⇒ "I'm looking for an imperial guard, about this tall, probably angry." (Progress: 15% NM, 12% HM)
"I see a lot of angry people, yourself included, but I haven't seen any wearing imperial-guard uniforms."
⇒ "You know where to find Meijun, don't you?" (Progress: 35% NM, 25% HM)
"Yeah I do, I saw him headed to the markets earlier. I think he said he was going to head back to headquarters after."
⇒ "Do you know where I can find some sailors?" (No progress)
"Uh, by the huge boats maybe? What exactly did you come here for?"
Jade Brotherhood Member 5
"I'll talk, I'll talk. What do you want to know?"
⇒ "Has an imperial guard passed by here lately?" (Progress: 15% NM, 12% HM)
"Yeah, we've had a little gnat buzzing around our business lately. Haven't seen her myself, though."
⇒ "Where can I find Meijun?" (Progress: 35% NM, 25% HM)
"You wanna find the Vengeful Eye? I see him around the markets this time of day usually. You've got a death wish, though, if you're going after him"
⇒ "Do you know where I can find some fresh fruit around here?" (No progress)
"Sioh's stall by the docks has some great oranges. Wait, you beat me up for that?"
Peasant 1
"It's been so boring today. I just wish something exciting would happen!"
⇒ "I'm looking for an imperial guard, perhaps you've seen her?" (No progress)
"Haven't seen any but the one following your around."
⇒ "Meijun, the Vengeful Eye. Does the name mean anything to you?" (No progress)
"Can't say it does. Is that a band?"
⇒ "Who's your daddy?" (No progress, but unlocks dialogue with Yon Ruino)
"Yon Ruino, he's a carpenter that works out of the Marketplace. Are you a friend of my father?"
Peasant 2
"Been seeing a lot of Ministry folks running around lately. I wonder if something is going on."
⇒ "Seen any imperial guards around lately? Red and gold armor? Gets really angry when people threaten her family?" (Progress: 20% NM, 15% HM)
"Oh you mean Natsumi? I usually see her on her patrols, though it's odd that she hasn't been here in a while. Maybe try over by the shops to the east?"
⇒ "Do you know where Jade Brotherhood hang out?" (Progress: 10% NM, 8% HM)
"I can tell you they don't hang out around here."
⇒ "Does this outfit make my butt look big?" (No progress)

Peasant 3
"Things have been pretty busy around here lately."
⇒ "I'm looking for an imperial guard, have you seen her?" (Progress: 10% NM, 8% HM)
"Can't say I have. I've been pretty busy today."
⇒ "Have you heard of Meijun, Vengeful Eye?" (Progress: 20% NM, 15% HM)
"Oh THAT guy? He roughed me up a bit one time for bumping into him on the street. I think he hangs out west of here. If you see him, give him a punch for me, too."
⇒ "Do you know what they call a moa burger with cheese in Elona?" (No progress)
"Yeah, they call it a warmarshal with cheese. It sounds stupid if you ask me."
Peasant 4
"Yes, do you need something?"
⇒ "I'm looking for an imperial guard. Have you seen any?" (No progress)
"I see one following you around, is that the one?"
⇒ "Tell me what you know about Meijun, Vengeful Eye." (No progress)
"Sure thing. I don't know him."
⇒ "Do you like tigers or cranes better?" (Progress: 20% NM, 15% HM)
"If I had to pick one, I'd say tigers. Speaking of which, there was this imperial guard that passed by here talking about some guy she wanted to beat up. She looked real angry, like a tiger. Sorry, I guess that's a little off topic, but I saw her heading to the Jade Brotherhood headquarters up north."
Peasant 5
"Um, yes? Can I help you with something?"
⇒ "Have you seen an imperial guard around here?" (Progress: 20% NM, 15% HM)
"Now that you mention it, I did see one chasing some Jade Brotherhood just a while ago. I think they were headed that way."
⇒ "Do you know a Jade Brotherhood member named Meijun?" (Progress: 10% NM, 8% HM)
"I try not to associate with those guys. Maybe you should try down by the market."
⇒ "Do you feel lucky, punk?" (No progress)
"Well I did win a free bag of rice at a raffle recently, though I don't care much for your tone."
Yon Ruino

After choosing the 3rd dialogue option with Peasant 1:

"Business hasn't been as good since the Ministry of Purity has started their sweeps."
⇒ "Your son tells me you're quite the carpenter." (Progress: 45% NM, 35% HM)
"Oh, you've met my son. That boy is so worthless sometimes. I'd like him to help out more with the business, but all he does is loaf around the bazaar all day. I could have used his help earlier, too. Some Jade Brotherhood were looking for some "protection money." Fortunately, an imperial guard came by and scared them off. She probably chased them all the way back to their headquarters up on the northern end."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Lei Jeng
"Thank you for your help. Natsumi has a tendency to overreact to things, but in this case I can't really blame her. To have her sister attacked and left for dead as a means of example to another... Well, I'm just glad we were able to stop her in time. Having Meijun off the streets should hopefully slow down the Brotherhood as well. Now let's see this document she managed to recover.
"Hmm, this is disturbing. It seems to be some kind of draft of a treaty agreement. The other party is blank, however, so I'm not sure who it is. It seems the actions of the Ministry of Purity have driven even the Brotherhood to seek allies elsewhere. I'll start an investigation into this, so don't worry. In the meantime, please take this as compensation for your assistance."

Notes[edit]

  • Peasants don't have much information to share. You gain the most progress by speaking to the Jade Brotherhood Members.
  • Make sure Miyuki is following you to "the location Miyuki has suggested", as she can get stuck on the way there, and the quest won't update without her presence.
Bug Bug.Miyuki will become stuck on NPCs along the way, a simple fix is get her unstuck on any she does so that the quest will update when you head to the location of Natsumi.
