Dialogue

"Sir Tydus wants you to take on a second profession before you face the Charr, right? I think he is right to say so. A second profession gives you access to all of the skills and most of the attributes of that profession. This is a big decision, not to be taken lightly. You might wish to see trainers for several professions and learn a little something about them before settling on one.
Not just any trainer can teach you a second profession, but I can direct you if need be."
Accept: "I'll take a second profession."
Reject: "Sounds like too much trouble."

Intermediate Dialogue 1 (Armin Saberlin)

"There are trainers for every profession throughout Ascalon. I can give you directions if need be. Which profession are you interested in?"
Option 1: "Warrior"
Option 2: "Ranger"
Option 3: "Monk"
Option 4: "Elementalist"
Option 5: "Necromancer"
Option 6: "Mesmer"

Reward Dialogue

"Choosing a second profession can be one of the most difficult decisions facing a young soldier, but don't be afraid you've made the wrong choice. There is no right or wrong choice. Every combination of professions has unique benefits and possibilities. Now it's up to you to take advantage of them."

Followup

Walkthrough

This quest guides you to choosing your character's secondary profession. While not required to take a second profession, you will need to complete this before being able to enter the Ascalon Academy and leave Pre-Searing Ascalon.

After accepting the quest, you will be offered a list of professions to ask about, the first objective in the Quest Log will change depending on the last profession you asked about. The only objective that will never appear is the one that matches your primary profession (even if you click on the option to ask about it, the objective will remain as the previous asked about profession).

You need only do one of the quests listed below, but you can do all available quests (will not be able to get the quest that matches your primary profession), to increase the amount of experience points and in turn, levels you can earn prior to entering the much harsher post-sear world:

At the end of each of these quests you will be asked if you wish to take that quest's profession as your second profession. Contrary to the wording of the acceptance dialogue when asked if you want to accept your current selected secondary profession, you will eventually be able to change your secondary profession, but not before attaining Ascension, which occurs quite some time after leaving the training region, so is still an important decision, but not absolutely permanent.

Once you accept a second profession, any of the listed quests that you did not do will become unavailable to you. It is possible to choose the secondary profession before taking this quest (in which case, you will immediately receive the reward).

Notes

  • The ordering of the professions in Armin's Intermediate Dialogue 1 are not in the usual order as shown in most other places within the game, but have been listed here as shown in-game.
  • The Accept icon during Intermediate Dialogue 3 is different for each secondary profession, for example, looks like a shield for Warriors, is a paw print for Rangers, a flame for Elementalist etc.
