An easy escort quest. Acts as a tutorial for this sort of quests.

Quest Information[edit]





Meet Yijo Tahn in Sunqua Vale just outside Shing Jea Monastery. It is an easy but time-consuming task, because Yijo attacks non-aggressive mantids and kappa along the way, however, if you run all the way to Tsumei Village without stopping to wait for Yijo, he won't attack anything on the way because he'll be preoccupied with catching up to you. When you get to Tsumei Village, talk to Sister Choi Ju. She tells you to return to Yazoying for your reward.




Initial dialogue[edit]


They say some are born with knowledge, while others must bury their heads in books and scrolls to gain it. Yijo Tahn is the former...learning has always come easy to him. Perhaps that is why it is so disconcerting to him that he has fallen behind in his Practical Application course. Of course, you know Yijo...he went right to the library and checked out more books than I could read in a year! I told him that burying his nose in books will not help him in this class; what he really needs is a real-life study buddy, someone like Sister Choi Ju in Tsumei Village. I told him I would show him how to get to Tsumei Village, but I just found out about a quiz in my next class, and I really need to study. Will you do me a huge favor and take him there?

Yes Accept: "A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Of course I'll escort Yijo to meet his tutor.""
No Decline: "Sounds like Yijo's mind is a terrible thing. Let it go to waste.""
Ask Ask: "If Yijo is to pass this class, he will need some help. Please, escort him to see Sister Choi Ju in Tsumei Village."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Yijo Tahn

So Yazoying told you that I am falling behind in Practical Application, did she? Well, I am ashamed to admit it, but what she said is correct. I have never failed a class before, and I have no intention of doing so now, so if what it takes is some extra tutoring, then so be it. If you could show me how to get to Tsumei Village and Sister Choi Ju, I will be in your debt. Please, lead the way.

Yijo Tahn: Ah, I can feel my brain getting heavier with the weight of knowledge already. We are almost there!
Yijo Tahn: A thousand thanks for bringing me to Tsumei Village, [Character Name]. I would stay and chat some, but I think I best track down Sister Choi Ju and get to studying.
Sister Choi Ju

You have escorted Yijo Tahn here? Very good...his instructor told me to expect him. Not many students are willing to give up their precious free time to a tutor, but Yijo obviously takes his studies very seriously. I have heard that he is one of Master Togo's favorites this year, and now I understand why. Thank you again for showing him how to get here.

Reward dialogue (prior to finishing Zen Daijun)[edit]


Hello ! Good to see you again. Oh, hey, Yijo told me that you escorted him to Tsumei Village. He was really grateful, and so am I. If I can return the favor in the future, let me know.

Alternate reward dialogue (after finishing Zen Daijun)[edit]


What happened to Yijo? The plague? No, not Yijo! It cannot be! He was such a kind's just not fair.

Be thankful that you had the opportunity to enjoy his company, for however brief a time. I am sure that he was glad to spend his last moments with a friend.


  • Similar to Cash Crops, if you completed the Zen Daijun mission with this quest in your Quest Log, you can go accept the reward even though the quest objectives do not display as being completed.
Bug Bug.If Yijo accidentally damages an Ox during this quest, he will be able to attack and kill it
