Initial dialogue[edit]

Gull Hookbeak

"Human interloper, you know not what you have done. No doubt you foolishly believe you have aided me, but you have in fact deprived me of the chance to complete the Rite of Valor and prove myself. If you cannot find another worthy foe for my blade, you shall have to suffice."
Yes Accept: "I will find you a worthy foe."
No Decline: "You think you can take me? Try it."
Ask Ask: "The Rite of Valor must be completed, human. Find me a worthy foe."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Gull Hookbeak

"Yrrg Snagtooth! Yes, my tribemates know him well. This foe is more than worthy and will allow me to complete the Rite of Valor with pride. Those others, however, are beneath me. If you would atone me for depriving me of my earlier foe, you must kill them...but leave Yrrg Snagtooth for me. Do this, and I will be grateful. But if you kill him before I do, you will leave me no choice but to earn my honor with your blood."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Gull Hookbeak

"You have atoned for your mistake, but do not think this makes us allies. If I see you again, only one of us will walk away from the encounter, and it will not be you."

  • Be careful with henchmen and/or heroes during this quest, lest you accidentally kill Yrrg Snagtooth with AoE damage.
    • You will get credit for the quest if Snagtooth dies out of compass range of the other Yeti, regardless of how he dies.
    • Thus, some people choose to pull the boss away from the main battle.
