Quest information[edit]



Early benefits[edit]

Skills provided:



You will have been provided with skill that allows you to slow down an enemy (Warriors will receive a skill to run faster). Use these to hunt down and defeat Zho.

  • For a character that wishes to do this quest because of their secondary professions, a Ritualist can body block the gate with 4 spirits to prevent Zho from leaving. This allows one to defeat Zho with ease.



Initial dialogue[edit]

Instructor Ng

<Character name> it is time that you learned the arts of snaring and kiting. Snaring lets you slow your foe's movement. Kiting is the act of using movement to make yourself a difficult target while attacking your foe mercilessly. Zho, one of our Ranger instructors, will assist us with this exercise. Slow her down and inflict enough damage upon her that she submits to your skill. Are you ready?

By accepting this quest you will abandon other advance training quests and put yourself into a separate training arena from the rest of your party, if applicable.

Yes Accept: "Show me the way to the dojo!"
No Decline: "Perhaps another time."
Ask Ask: "Impeding your opponents' movements is a pivotal tactic. You would be wise to learn this."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Kai Ying

Welcome to the Snaring course. Instructor Zho will be using a method called kiting to try to prevent you from inflicting damage upon her. Use your Snare skill to slow her down and attack her until she submits.

Very good. With an understanding of how to Snare foes, you will be better able to keep them from eluding your attacks."
