Initial dialogue[edit]

Headmaster Kaa
"Listen closely: I understand that Lo Sha has recovered the legendary Box of Illusions. If this is true, then I must study it. I know not why he has not brought it to me already, prideful boy."
"I believe Lo Sha is in Panjiang Peninsula. Will you find him and acquire the box for me?
Yes Accept: "I will find Lo Sha and retrieve the box."
No Decline: "I am not going to take on Lo Sha."
Ask Ask: "Lo Sha knows not what he has. I need you to retrieve that Box of Illusions from him so that I may study it carefully."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Lo Sha
"<Party leader>, I am so glad to see you. I have shamed myself and my order. I wanted to present the ornate box to Mei Ling, so I asked her to meet me. Meanwhile, I allowed some members of the Crimson Skull to learn of our rendezvous; I hoped to foil their ambush, protect Mei Ling, and earn her favor in the process. But the bandits came in such large numbers that I was unable to stop them. They have taken Mei Ling with them. I beg of you: help me to free Mei Ling. Lead the way and I shall help as best I can!"
Lo Sha
"Thank you so much for your help. If Headmaster Kaa wants the box, then he shall have it. It seems unimportant to me, now. I am just so grateful that Mei Ling is safe..."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Headmaster Kaa
"The Box of Illusions! So, it does exist after all. How beautiful it is! Thank you, <Character name>. Now that you have completed your advanced training, you should go see Master Togo again. You will find him in Linnok Courtyard."


Anomaly Anomaly.Although rescuing Mei Ling after Lo Sha dies will produce the message "Quest failed", after returning to the area the quest will update to the next "Talk to Lo Sha" step. After talking to him again you may return to Headmaster Kaa for the reward.
