The Jade Brotherhood and Am Fah are in open war in Wajjun Bazaar, and the Ministry of Purity are on their way. Try to find a way to stop the bloodbath.

Quest information[edit]




Speak to Guardsman Qao Lin again, who will transport your party to a Wajjun Bazaar infested with Ministry, Jade Brotherhood and Am Fah.

Head straight west towards the docks. You will encounter two groups of hostile Ministry of Purity NPCs that are battling other hostile foes. To make the fight easier, wait until the Ministry of Purity has defeated the other hostiles before engaging them.

At the docks you will encounter a large neutral mob made up of Am Fah and Jade Brotherhood. After a short discussion, Reisen the Phoenix and Apep, Unending Night will turn hostile. Defeat both, then watch the conversation to finish the quest.


A: It is possible to run to the location of Reisen the Phoenix and Apep, Unending Night, avoiding any fighting yourself. After the dialogue reaches the appropriate stage, the two will fight, and then you can lure the nearby Ministry of Purity group to the bosses to finish off the last one. Spell target protection may be useful.

B: The only required kill is Reisen the Phoenix. Stay on the south side of the bridge directly away from the mob only Reisen the Phoenix will turn hostile. Use a hero to lure him onto the bridge without the rest of the mob becoming hostile. Once he goes down, just wait for the dialogue to finish and the quest to update.

Initial dialogue[edit]

Guardsman Qao Lin
"Thank goodness you've returned! Just when I thought things couldn't get any seems like the Jade Brotherhood and the Am Fah are each trying to capitalize on the fact that the other has been weakened by the Ministry of Purity. They're using this opportunity to try and put an end to their rivalry. The streets of Wajjun Bazaar are being overrun!.[sic]"
At this rate, it's only a matter of time before the Ministry of Purity comes down on them, and tries to wipe them both out in one fell swoop. I'd say "Good riddance to them," but...fighting on this scale? A lot of innocent people are going to get hurt, and the Imperial Guard doesn't have the numbers left to intervene. We can only rely on you, friend. This fight needs to be stopped, in any way possible. Will you help?"
Yes Accept: "I will bring an end to their brawling with my superior fighting."
No Decline: "Oh, just let them kill each other off. It's for the best."
Ask Ask: "We need to put an end to the fighting before innocent lives are lost in the crossfire. Are you ready to go?"
Yes Accept: "I'm ready to go break up their fight."
No Decline: "On second thought, I think I may just let them fight it out."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

<Party leader>: "It seems the Ministry of Purity beat us here. We should make our way into the Jade Brotherhood Stronghold. That's likely where the Am Fah and Jade Brotherhood are doing battle."
<Random Ministry member>: "Kill them all, take no one alive. They aren't worth our judges' time!"
<Random Am Fah member>: "All right, all right, we surrender!"
<Random Ministry member>: "Save your words, vermin! Grenth is the warden of the only prison you'll be seeing today!"
<Random Ministry member>: "Keep pushing into their lair. I want their leaders' heads hanging from the city walls by dusk!"
<Party leader>: "By the six, the ministry is slaughtering them like animals! Even criminals deserve better than this!"

Upon approaching the gangs' leaders:

Reisen the Phoenix: "The moment you stepped out of the shadows, your fate was sealed. What the Ministry of Purity began, I'm going to finish!"
Apep, Unending Night: "So you think, but your numbers speak differently. You are weak, and your time is at an end!"
<Party leader>: "Stop this, both of you! Don't you see that your very actions are allowing the Ministry of Purity to vilify you?"
Reisen the Phoenix: "Well, well. It's nice to finally see you thinking for yourself. Unfortunately, things are not quite so simple as you would like to believe."
Apep, Unending Night: "This is our way of life. If we are to be villains, then let us be villains! People cannot think in shades of grey. [sic] They need something to be good or bad. They need the decision to be made for them."
Apep, Unending Night: "The people that find themselves oppressed will long for freedom, and then they will be ours. This way of life is all that we know, and we will live it to the fullest!"
Reisen the Phoenix: "So it is that we must end our rivalry. The time has come!"

Upon defeating Reisen the Phoenix and Apep, Unending Night:

<Party leader>: "Enough! If the bloodshed doesn't stop here, it never will!"
Initiate Zei Ri: "Fine words from a traitor. Was your conscience so clear when you turned on your allies? When you betrayed me?"
Reisen the Phoenix: "The Ministry of Purity! We must flee! We can't stand against them like this!"
Apep, Unending Night: "Am Fah, full withdrawal! This battle is lost...but we will finish this, Reisen!"
Initiate Zei Ri: "Pursue them! The Am Fah and the Jade Brotherhood must not be allowed to escape!"
Initiate Zei Ri: "As for will be dealt with. Consider this a reprieve while we deal with a larger threat. But know that the Ministry of Purity has no love for those that meddle in the affairs of Cantha."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Guardsman Qao Lin
"The Am Fah and the Jade Brotherhood both turned and fled? Something about that doesn't feel right to me. But no doubt, the Ministry of Purity is going to be crowing about this as their great victory, routing the gangs from Cantha. I can only hope that this is the end of it. Eradicating the Afflicted, I completely understood. The gangs, I could understand the reasoning behind going after them. But who else could be left for them to persecute? Maybe...just maybe, they'll have finally got what they wanted, and things can begin to settle down. Am I sounding a little too optimistic here? I hope not.
I let myself get sidetracked. You should go speak with your friend, the assassin. She said she would be waiting in the Shenzun Tunnels for you. She looked like she was up to something. Now I'm back to worrying again."


Bug Bug.The quest log fails to mention the experience and gold rewards. However, they are noted in the various dialogues.
