Welcome to Elona! A simple quest to get started with for experienced players.

Quest information[edit]





Escort Kormir, Koss and 3 Sunspear Recruits to First Spear Jahdugar just outside Chahbek Village. Along the way, 2 Corsairs will popup, however they are easily defeated.


Initial dialogue[edit]

If we take this route to Chahbek Village, we can hope for no support from our watch post nearby. It is faster, but you must be sure of yourself and your abilities if we hope to have any chance of success.
Yes Accept: "I am confident in my abilities."
No Decline: "I must reconsider this."
Ask Ask: "We must hurry! Chahbek Village is in great danger!"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Koss: That's the spirit, [Character Name]! Recruits, ready your weapons and prepare for battle by pressing "I" to open your inventory. Then, double-click on the weapon the Spearmarshall has given you.
Koss: Here we go! It's a short jaunt through these shallows to Chahbek Village.
Kormir: [Character Name]! Take point! Koss and I will back you up.
Kormir: These corsairs must be a scouting party for the main force. Let's hope they haven't already overwhelmed the village defenses.... (bubble)
Koss: Corsair scum! (bubble)
First Spear Jahdugar

Thank the gods you've arrived! The corsair vanguard is overwhelming our defenses.

Yes Let me know when you are ready.
Let me know when you are ready!

Reward dialogue[edit]

First Spear Jahdugar

Now that you're here we can drive those blasted corsairs out of the village!
