Follow the Emperor's advice and meet with Danika, who will show you where to gain the Urn of Saint Viktor from the Kurzicks.

Quest information[edit]




Enter Sunjiang District (explorable area) from Zin Ku Corridor, where Mhenlo will join your party. Follow the quest marker to Danika, fighting Am Fah along the way. Once you have talked to Danika you can map travel to Maatu Keep if you have it unlocked. If not, follow the quest marker to Pongmei Valley, fighting Am Fah and Afflicted along the way; once in Pongmei Valley follow the quest marker, watching out for the popup Ranger boss Meynsang the Sadistic (if you follow the quest marker directly), until you get to Danika and talk to her. After talking to Danika and Redemptor Karl, follow the quest marker to Tanglewood Copse. Once in Arborstone (explorable area) follow the quest marker to Lift Operator Shulz, being careful not to get stuck between the two groups of Wardens. Lift Operator Shulz will take you to Arborstone where you can collect the quest reward.

Initial dialogue[edit]

Emperor's Voice
We have learned of a growing movement among the Kurzick youth that might prove helpful to our cause. It seems they have been stirred by recent events, having grown tired of watching the world pass them by from the comfort and protection of their grand towers. The emperor wishes you to speak with Danika zu Heltzer, Count zu Heltzer's daughter. She may be more prone to helping us gain the Urn of Saint Viktor than her elders. Seek her out near the Sunjiang District. Mhenlo will accompany you into Kurzick territory. It is Master Togo's hope that he will be able to call in some favors, since he gave the zu Heltzers some assistance many years ago while he was a student at the monastery.
Yes Accept: "I'll speak with Danika."
No Decline: "I have no time to speak with disgruntled, spoiled youths."
Ask Ask: "Danika is near the entrance to the Sunjiang District. Commander Jafai's men are trailing her so as to keep her from harm until you can get to her."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Meeting up with Danika in Sunjiang District:

Danika: "There, there. I'm so sorry you had to see that. will be okay now, I promise... Hush now...."
Kimi: "They...they were sick...then...they...they tried to eat me..."
Danika: "Yes, yes, I know. They were very, very sick, and they weren't themselves. They would never harm you otherwise.... But it's all over now. They are at peace...."
Kimi: "M...M...Mommy..."
Danika: "Shhh...don't worry. I'll send someone to look after you. My father will send food and medicine. Everything will be all right, you'll see. There, there..."
We are here on a diplomatic mission. When we arrived, we heard rumors of a plague, but I had no idea....
This poor child! I had to kill her parents right in front of her to keep them from eating her alive! It breaks my heart to see all these people suffering, and I wonder, can we Kurzicks afford to simply stand by and watch? Is this what the gods would want us to do? Even if the plague never reaches Kurzick lands, do we not have a duty to help? For generations we have lived protected lives in our stuffy old towers. We don't make a move without months of careful prayer and deliberation. Well, personally, I'm sick of it! The time for careful deliberation is past!
Of course I'll help you. Meet me outside the city gates."

Outside the City Gates:

I'm glad you came. I wasn't sure if you'd actually show up.
Danika:: "It's horrible...just horrible. The plague is out of control, and the people of Cantha are dying. We have to do something! We have to help."
Redemptor Karl: "I'm sure there isn't anything we can do that the emperor isn't already doing, Danika. Certainly we can send food and supplies if they're needed, but...."
Danika: "There is something we can do, Redemptor, and I intend to do it. My new friends have discovered the cause of this plague, and they need the Urn of Saint Viktor to help contain its spread. I'm going to help them retrieve it!"
Redemptor Karl: "You'll do no such thing, Danika!"
Danika: "This plague could easily spread to Kurzick lands. Perhaps we can use this to our advantage, considering the current state of our cathedral...."
Danika: "Master Togo of Shing Jea Monastery believes that Shiro the Betrayer has returned and that this plague is a result of his presence."
Redemptor Karl: "Shiro!? No! That''s impossible!"
Danika: "What if it isn't, Redemptor? These people intend to fight him using the sacred Urn of Saint Viktor, and I'm going to take them to it...."
Redemptor Karl: "We will return to House zu Heltzer immediately and call a holy council."
Danika: "Twenty-four days while the Redemptors consider the omens and determine what the gods are trying to tell us? Our ancestors knew what it meant to act. With their help, I intend to act now."
Redemptor Karl: "Danika..."
Danika: "Saint Viktor slew Shiro two hundred years ago. If he has truly returned, the urn may hold the power to defeat him!"
Danika: "Also consider: the protections in Cathedral zu Heltzer have been...unpredictable...since the Jade Wind. These look like sturdy heroes. If they brave the Cathedral and retrieve the urn, they will also be providing a helpful service to our House."
Danika: "This is the right thing to do. It's what the gods want, I just know it! Please, don't stand in my way."
Redemptor Karl: "Hmm... It seems there are multiple benefits to your assisting these heroes, Danika. Very well... Besides, I am certain your father would like to see Mhenlo again, we thought he was dead after what happened...."
Redemptor Karl
The gods are very wise; I should have seen the signs, but I was admittedly short-sighted. We shall allow you to retrieve the Urn of Saint Viktor, and in return you shall help us with a little "problem" we've had with the zu Heltzer cathedral. Of course, we must still discuss all of the details...with someone of repute. I have heard that Mhenlo is with you. The zu Heltzer family owes him a great debt of gratitude for something he did for us ages ago. Bring him to House zu Heltzer, and we shall finalize our deal. When you are ready to travel there, speak with the Lift Operator. He will be expecting you.

At the zu Helter lift:

Lift Operator Shulz
Mhenlo!? We all thought you were dead, know... Well, nevermind that. I am sure that Count zu Heltzer will be glad to see you! You all must be the other ones Redemptor Karl told me would be arriving. Let me know when your party is ready to travel. These lifts can be a little jumpy. Watch your step.
Yes We wish to go.
When you are ready to travel, I will take you to Arborstone. I must tell you, we zu Heltzers rarely let outsiders into our cathedral. This is quite a privilege.
Yes I am ready.
Your entire party is about to be moved to the next area. Make sure all party members are ready first. Do you wish to continue?
Yes Yes (sent to The Count's Daughter (cinematic))
No No.
No Not right now.

Reward dialogue[edit]

Acolyte Hanz
I'm glad you made it here safely. The zu Heltzers are awaiting you once you're ready.
