Lakeside County[edit]

to Warriors
"You should be glad you are a Warrior. The times we live in are not for the weak."
"What brings you here?"
to Rangers
"Ranger, you haven't the discipline to learn what I have to teach. Talk to Artemis."
to Elementalists, Mesmers, Monks and Necromancers
"You are not a Warrior, are you? Well, I have nothing to teach you, then. Good luck."
if spawned together with Howland the Elementalist
Van the Warrior: "Greetings and good day, Howland. Howland? Hello?"
Howland the Elementalist: "Hmmm? Oh, Van. Yes, good day to you too."
Van the Warrior: "Hmph."
if spawned together with Sebedoh the Mesmer
Van the Warrior: "Greetings, Mesmer. Are you training a new apprentice today?"
Sebedoh the Mesmer: "Aye, if one arrives before I tire of waiting."
Van the Warrior: "You should really get more exercise, Sebedoh. It would do wonders for your energy."
if spawned together with Ciglo the Monk
Ciglo the Monk: "Greetings, Van. Taking a break from your training? I hear you're putting in long hours these days."
Van the Warrior: "Eight hours a day, every day. A Warrior must always be prepared, eh Ciglo?"
Ciglo the Monk: "You speak true, though few have your dedication and discipline, Van."
if spawned together with Verata the Necromancer
Verata the Necromancer beckons Van the Warrior.
Van the Warrior: "Very funny, Verata. You'll not have a chance at my corpse anytime soon."
if spawned together with Artemis the Ranger
Artemis the Ranger: "Van, my old friend. Care to spar with me later? I miss our talks."
Van the Warrior: "Hail, Artemis. Would that your fists were as quick as your tongue. I'm busy today, but perhaps another time."
Artemis the Ranger: "As you say. I'll look forward to it!"

Yak's Bend[edit]

"Though we have left the Charr behind us we must be ever vigilant, new challenges await us among the Shiverpeaks. Balthazar willing, we will win our way through to Kryta."
"What can I do for you?"


  • Van has a completely different model after the Searing.
