Put an end to this relentless fiend and receive the royal bounty and gratitude of Krytans everywhere."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Inquisitor Bauer: "DAMMIT! We're running out of mergoyles!"
Peacekeeper Marksman: "Ummm, Boss? I'm pretty sure these things ain't ever gonna talk..."
Inquisitor Bauer: "Shut up! You just make sure our men have secured the perimeter!"
Peacekeeper Enforcer: "Emmpphhh eeeeinpheng aaaaaahheed!"
Inquisitor Bauer:"HA! So, you thought you could mount a rescue operation, did you? Bring them to me alive!"

Reward dialogue[edit]

Princess Salma
"Thank you <player name>, your efforts bring us one step closer to a unified nation."


  • Some players find it easy to vanquish the area with this quest active: by the time you have killed Bauer, a large portion of the total number of foes have already been defeated.
  • Bauer will not spawn if Heirlooms of the Mad King (the Halloween quest) is active.


  • "..." has been used as a placeholder NPC name and as placeholder dialogue in the past when unfinished content has accidentally been pushed through to Live.
Bug Bug.Players who started the three required Wanted quests before the 19 November 2010 update might be forced to take the official umbrella quest, which is optional otherwise. If you are unable to move on to Riverside Assassination, speak to Murro in Lion's Arch and add The War in Kryta to your quest log.
