  • The missive Baderon deciphered contains orders for the destruction of the Victory. While the message meant for Ahtzapfyn also mentioned that Swiftperch would be the site of a simple feint operation, the Wench's proprietor seems convinced that the Serpent Reavers intend to commit their full forces to the attack on the struggling settlement. Take Baderon's hastily translated note and deliver it to Commodore Reyner at the Coral Tower.
  • As if to underscore Baderon's warning of impending attack, Reyner receives word that the South Tidegate is under assault by Sahagin forces. Make haste to the settlement of Swiftperch and speak with the Yellowjacket, Ryssfloh.
  • With the help of the valiant Yellowjacket soldiers, you have defeated the marauding Serpent Reavers and protected the residents of Swiftperch. According to the Sharlayan native, Y'shtola, it seems that the Sahagin and their pirate allies were being manipulated by a masked mage she called an “Ascian.” Though much remains shrouded in mystery, not the least of which is a strange black crystal you discovered near the mage's remains, the truth behind the kidnappings has finally come to light. Return to the Coral Tower and report to Commodore Reyner.
  • Admiral Merlwyb expresses her heartfelt gratitude for the numerous deeds you have performed in the service of Limsa Lominsa. As part of your reward, the Admiral insists that you attend an upcoming banquet and be honored before the gathered dignitaries. Expectations are high as you prepare to face the unknown challenges that lie ahead.

Edit Feint and Strike's Dialogue



There are two battles during this quest. They both take place in Swiftperch, and are separated only by a menacing cutscene.

Both Ryssfloh and Glazrael must survive the fight. Glazrael is rather weak, so use heals and try to pull aggro as needed. Ryssfloh is tanky and shouldn't need any help.

During the first battle, it is best to ignore Baenryss. Ryssfloh will hold his aggro without fail. Instead, follow Glazrael, attacking what she attacks. As groups of lesser mobs thin out, she directs her attention to Baenryss. Take the opportunity to help heap on the damage. If she switches her focus back to a group of mobs, follow suit and help her as before.

Once Baenryss falls, a cutscene will play. Afterwards, there is a fight with the Masked Mage. He will summon a big, gnarly looking mob. Luckily, it doesn't hit very hard. Take it out first. Y'shtola will then join the fight, and the Masked Mage will fall quickly. Edit Feint and Strike's Notes
