Escorts

From Tales of Maj'Eyal
Jump to: navigation, search

In each game you will find exactly 9 escort quests, spread across the zones of Maj'Eyal.

Locations

The location of escort quests are determined at your character's birth, but can only appear on levels within the following zones:

Starter dungeons
Trollmire
Scintillating Caves
Ruins of Kor'Pul
Norgos Lair
Heart of the Gloom
Higher level dungeons
Old Forest
Daikara
Dreadfell
Reknor

Each quest will be generated when you enter the level where it is located. If an escort is assigned by the game to spawn in a level of a place, and that place is a small room with a door that leads to the rest of the level, you might not receive the escort or the associated quest until you open the door(and possibly other doors as well, potentially including vaults)and reenter the level because the escort's portal tile is supposed to be on the other side of the door(s).

Additionally, if an escort is assigned by the game to spawn in a level of a place, and upon entering it there are no immediately visible unoccupied floor tiles on the same turn that you enter the level, then the escort will not spawn until you can enter the level and immediately see at least one unoccupied floor tile on the turn that you enter.

Furthermore, escorts will never spawn in Trollmire level 1 or 4, nor in Norgos' Lair level 1, and escorts will never spawn in the place where your character spawns upon character creation.

Betraying to Zigur

You may betray escortees with arcane abilities to Zigur for an alternate set of rewards, as long as you meet both conditions below:

  • Your current or any previous characters has read the sign at Zigur and learned its lore.
  • Your current character does not know any spell talents or have any runes equipped

Shaloren and Ogre racial talents are spells, and will prevent them from getting Zigur rewards. Zigur followers do not have the choice to take the standard rewards from Arcane escortees; they may only choose to betray, or to skip the quest altogether.

Rewards

The rewards that can be obtained from escort quests are detailed below. Upon completion of each escort quest, you may select one reward from the appropriate list.

After selecting a reward, you will have the option of giving it to a party member that satisfies the following conditions:

  • It is alive
  • It may be fully controlled by you
  • It does not have a summon timer
  • It is not a Lifeless Husk generated by Animus Purge

More specifically, Alchemist golems are allowed to receive escort quest rewards.

All stat improvements are added to your base value.

Learning a talent in a category that was originally hidden to you will set its mastery level to 0.8, even if you cannot see it.

Category rewards will reveal the category as locked and set its mastery level to 0.8. A category point will still be required to unlock the category. If a category has already been revealed by a previous escort its option will not be present.
