Quest information[edit]









NPC levels[edit]

The levels of the NPCs for this quest are determined by the least leveled party member when the Northlands are entered:

Party level Charr Tate
10...13 8 5
14...16 11 10
17...20 15 15


Initial dialogue[edit]

Lieutenant Langmar
"I knew that greenhorn couldn't handle a foray into the Northlands! Footman Tate insisted he was ready to kill some Charr, so we allowed him to go along, but at the first sign of combat he vanished into the woods. We found a bit of blood where we last saw him, so chances are he is wounded as well as cowardly. That does not bode well for someone stuck behind enemy lines, especially when the Charr are involved!
If you feel you can fare better than he did, please head to the Northlands, find that poor fool, and bring him back to this side of the Great wall. You will need someone else to go with you, though. We don't let anyone travel alone north of the Wall."
Yes Accept: "Leave no man behind! I'll find him."
No Decline: "He deserves a coward's death!"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Footman Tate: "Over here! Please take me back to the other side of the Wall where I will be safe!"
Footman Tate: "By the gods, we made it! The beasts won't be able to get us on the other side of the Wall!"

Reward dialogue[edit]

Lieutenant Langmar
"I am glad you found him. Hopefully, your bravery will serve as an example for him, and we won't have to go sending people after him ever again."


  • If Footman Tate spawns inside or close to a group of Charr, be careful when approaching. When you get close he will automatically become an ally and the Charr will attack him. At lower levels, they can quickly kill him causing the quest to fail.
  • This quest spawns a total of 30 high level charr. This is ideal for farming for Legendary Defender of Ascalon. Try combining with Vanguard Annihilation: Charr for additional foes (requires a party member with that quest active).
