The Sorceress of Kessex
|The Sorceress of Kessex
"There's a war on, didn't you notice? Not here in town, but in the Mad Realm. It's understandable if it escaped your attention; not everyone is so well attuned to the energies bubbling up from the spiritual plane. However, the commotion was enough to pull me from my work. A pity as I was just perfecting a potion to turn toads into ordinary humans. Cruel, I know, but it's all in the interest of science.
Anyway, Palawa Joko has reached his boiling point and taken an army to meet the Mad King's demented delegation. Supposedly, there is a score to settle over some insulting messenger who slaughtered a large number of Joko's minions. You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?"
- Messenger? Minions? Doesn't sound familiar...
- "Regardless, the battle will happen, and it's imperative for our plans...rather, it's in everyone's best interest that Mad King Thorn win. Halloween must go forward. The Mad King's annual arrival must not be forestalled. It shouldn't be too hard; just you and a handful of candymen against an angry Palawa Joko, five of his greatest generals, several priests, and their bodyguards. I can make it worth your effort if you'll travel to the Mists and lead the defenders against this impulsive offensive. Are you available to lay some Awakened back to rest?"
- She is named after Kessex Peak, an explorable area in Kryta.
- "Supposedly, there is a score to settle over some insulting messenger who slaughtered a large number of Joko's minions" refers to the Open the Flood Gates of Death quest.
- Her decline dialogue is a reference to the song Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen.
- In 2011, the dialogue for this NPC was the same as The Harbinger of King Thorn.
