Quest Information Edit
Basic Reward Edit
After getting the quest from Arkedil you will have an Ornate Necklace in your inventory. Talk with Chauminerk, a broker in Altgard Fortress. Then go to Pandaemonium to talk to Lanse, the Handicrafting Master. Next, speak with Annemari, who is in Vanahal District in Pandaemonium.
Initial Dialogue Edit
- "When you see an Archon like myself, would you ever guess I was an abandoned child? The first sound I can remember is the cry of Daru in the Moslan Forest.
- The hunters found me wrapped in a blanket and brought me to the village. Some whispered I was a child of a forest spirit, but the priest put a stop to that. He raised me as his own, and I never really worried about my real parents.
- I'm sorry...am I boring you?"
- "No. Please go on."
- "Thank you. When I ascended, the priest gave me two gifts--a blanket and a necklace.
- The blanket was the one I was found in, the necklace was bundled inside. It's so amazing, so valuable...why would people who could afford such jewelry abandon a child?
- I just can't get it out of my mind. I need to know how I got here."
- "Don't we all, Arekedil."
- "I've thought about looking for my parents many times, but could never summon the courage to do it. As a Daeva, I may live forever. They were probably just Humans...
- The only clue I have is the necklace. It's a beautiful thing, a rare piece of work. If I can trace who made it, I may find the original owner.
- I cannot leave my post, but you...you can travel freely. [Player Name], it's a lot to ask, but could you please take this necklace and discover the identity of my parents?"
- "Oh, Thank you! I've thought this through a thousand times. Take the necklace to Chauminerk, the trade broker.
- He might know who made it. He deals with expensive items all the time, and knows all the crafters well.
- I don't think I'll be able to sleep until you return, [Player Name]."
- "On my way."
- "You're right. Until I sort out my feelings about all this, maybe it's best to leave the unknown unknown.
- Another time, then."
Intermediate Dialogue Edit
- "Welcome, welcome! Chauminerk has many things to sell, just as Daeva has many needs, yes?
- What is this magnificent thing you bring? Such quality, even in Pandaemonium such pieces are rare. Needs a good cleaning though, will affect the price."
- "Do you know who made it?"
- "Chauminerk is sad now. So much money could be made from such a piece.
- Only a master could make. The Master of Handcrafting, Lanse. Yes, yes!
- She will know for sure! And when Daeva has finished, come back so we can sell it for you! Akakakak!"
- "Thanks for your help."
- "Oh, this takes me back! I remember it very well! This is the work of Wilvar, the master who trained me.
- He worked this while I was an apprentice, treating it like a holy object.
- I'd never seen anyone put their whole heart and soul into their work before..."
- "Do you know who it belongs to?"
- "Of course. The high priest commissioned it as a gift for his only daughter, Annemari, to mark her ascension.
- Balder was very specific on what he wanted. I remember how Master Wilvar suffered over the details...he took such pains.
- There's no question that this is the same piece--no one else could even come close. The central jewel is of unmatched size and luster. Yes, quite unique..."
- "Thank you, Lanse."
Reward Dialogue Edit
- "My...my necklace! I never expected to see it again.
- It was lost years ago...decades, even! And now that it's in my hands again...how strange. It reminds me of my ascension day. How young I was...how naive...
- Forgive me, but I must know...how did you get this?"
- "It belonged to my friend's mother."
- "The poor boy must be mistaken. My husband and I have no children. None.
- I always thought the necklace had been stolen. Clearly one of the boy's parents was the thief.
- It clearly means a lot to him, however, so perhaps he should keep it. What's more, the necklace and box were originally a pair--they belong together. He should treasure them, even if they cannot help him find his parents."
Arekedil, abandoned as a baby, wanted to find his parents. The only clue to their identity was a necklace, which you found once belonged to Annemari, the daughter of the high priest Balder.
Annemari acknowledged that the necklace was hers, but told you she had never given birth to a child. She gave you a jewel box that once went with the necklace, asking you to give them both back to Arekedil.
