Intermediate Dialogue 1 (Ogden Stonehealer)
- "The Destroyers have ventured dangerously near the surface, and Dwarves are few and far between up here. We must gain allies we can rally into an army. Only then can we repel this threat and keep those blasted Destroyers contained beneath the surface. That Norn who didn't attack us on sight... she might be an excellent starting point for creating the army we need."
Intermediate Dialogue 2 (Egil Fireteller)
- "Take a knee and listen up. It's story time."
- Player response: "Egil, I would like to hear a story!"
- "The Norn do not know gods, at least not in the way humans do. But we do revere the spirits of the animals upon whom we depend for food and shelter. There are many such spirits. Bear is the mightiest, of course, but Raven, Owl, Wolf, Wurm, and Ox all have their place in the world and in our hearts. While we hunt and slay these creatures, we also praise their spirit, and thank them for their sacrifice. These animals are our brethren; their spirits guide us as we live and hunt.
- There are more hostile, even malicious, spirits in the world... spirits of the mountains, seasons, fire, and darkness. The animal spirits are our allies against these foes, and we thank them for their aid, singing the praises of all beasts as we hunt. This is the Norn way."
- Player response: "Thank you!"
- "You have done well. Thanks to your efforts, we have potential allies and a base from which to launch a counterattack against the Destroyers."
This quest is basically an "umbrella" for the three primary quests of Curse of the Nornbear, Blood Washes Blood and A Gate Too Far, leading towards gaining the Norn as your allies. The quest will end with you entering the dwarven region, and speaking to Jalis Ironhammer for your reward.
- The quest is automatically received after watching The First Vision cinematic.
- The best way to get to Jalis Ironhammer is to start from Eye of the North and head southwest. You shouldn't have to fight anything before reaching the Battledepths, and once inside follow the north wall through a few pairs of Whirling Wisps and one group of Chilling Wisps. The one group of Chromatic Drakes are usually avoidable.
