15 Divine Favor, 15 Protection Prayers


To Monks or those without a secondary profession before selecting "Can you teach me some Monk skills?":

"Our whole village... ruined! And worse, these people are so Hexed that half of them think they're moa birds and the other half are coming down with the gorrilla-nose flu! It's just beastly! This is going to take me days to reverse... if I can get the time. More keep coming from the front lines every hour. Can you help me with this mess, or am I on my own?"
Can you teach me some Monk skills?
Safiya teaches you the skills Remove Hex and Mend Ailment.

To Monks or those without a secondary profession after selecting "Can you teach me some Monk skills?":

"Shoddy work! This is terrible! Look at those Hexes and Conditions on these villagers! It's such a mess. I'm glad to have help."
Tell me about conditions.
"Conditions are often side effects of other skills, although some professions specialize in causing Conditions. Conditions may slow you down, deal damage to you, or affect your ability to cast spells or receive healing. All Conditions wear off eventually, but they can also be removed or transferred with special skills.
"A small, brown, downward arrow on a character's Health Bar indicates that the character is suffereing from a Condition. If you are suffering from a Condition, a gold-colored icon with a golden border will appear on the upper left-hand corner of your screen."
Tell me about hexes.
"Hex spells cause negative effects for a period of time. They may damage your foes directly, prevent them from using certain skills, or decrease their abilities. A small, purple downward arrow on a character's Health Bar indicates that a hex spell has been cast upon that character. If a hex spell is cast upon you, you can read its description and learn its effects by hovering your mouse over the spell's icon on the top left corner of your default screen. Hex spells that cause Health degeneration will turn your Health Bar purple."

To those of other professions with the secondary profession already chosen:

"This one thinks she's a hyena. She won't stop laughing long enough for me to get the hex off! Hold her, will you?"
