Observe as Earthmender Duarn attemps to communicate with Nespirah.


I can't believe that Nespirah would willingly allow these naga to take residence in her shell. As I see it, one of two things have happened: they have convinced her to willingly join their cause, or they have weakened her to a point where she cannot fight back. Either one is bad.

Here in this chamber, I should be able to communicate directly with Nespirah. Let us find out for ourselves. Speak to me when you are prepared, <class>.


You will receive: 3g 90s


Nespirah needs our help. If nothing else, I can sense that.


That didn't go well. For some reason, the beast won't speak back to me.

<Duarn is clearly frustrated.>

If only Erunak had not left us! He would know what to do.


Talk to Duarn:

This creature... she is quite old, and very wise. We stand to learn a great deal about Vashj'ir and the naga, if we can only speak with Nespirah.

Gossip Whenever you're ready, Duarn.

Earthmender Duarn yells: Spirit of Life, lend me your aid!
Earthmender Duarn yells: Grant me the clarity to speak with this creature!
Earthmender Duarn shuffles uncomfortably.
Earthmender Duarn says: Nothing is happening... something must be preventing me from speaking with her.
