Journal detail hr1 07.png NPCs Involved

  • Ser Alberic wears a solemn expression on his face.
  • Ser Alberic has received a message from Estinien, who intends to strike against Nidhogg straightaway. Travel with Ser Alberic to the Steel Vigil, that you might share the truth of Ferndale with the young dragoon before the battle is joined.
  • You and Ser Alberic locate Estinien, but the fugitive dragoon has already learned the truth of the past on his own. Enraged at what he perceives to be Ser Alberic's failure to defend his home, Estinien turns upon you. Your virtuous spirit and mastery of the lance, however, prove more than a match for your adversary, and the being of darkness vanishes from sight, taking the fallen dragoon with it. Return to the Observatorium to hear Ser Alberic's thoughts on the matter.
  • Shaken but no worse for the wear, Ser Alberic welcomes you back. Nidhogg's aura now subsided, his scalekin will return to slumber for the time being. Though concerned for Estinien's fate, Ser Alberic is heartened by your accomplishments, which give him newfound hope for the future. Until such time as the great wyrm wakes again, go forth as the Azure Dragoon and use your newfound strength in the name of justice.
※The next dragoon quest will be available from Alberic once you have completed the main scenario quest “Before the Dawn.”

Ah, Forename! An urgent message arrived from Estinien in your absence. He bids you come at once to the Steel Vigil. It would seem Nidhogg is on the move─and rather sooner than we had anticipated.

It appears you have not yet fully become master of the dragon within you, and yet we are racing against time. I fear we have no choice but to do battle to the best of your current abilities, and without the drachen mail I promised.

Now let us away. Estinien must know the truth of Ferndale, lest he fall for the great wyrm's seduction.
Quest Accepted

When the being of darkness closed upon us, you appeared to me the spitting image of Haldrath the Dragonseye, just as he is depicted in the holy scriptures.

I thought that mayhap the years had taken their toll on my mind, but behold─the Soul of the Dragoon shines as it never did in all the years I bore it.

It would seem you have achieved that which was thought impossible: you have awakened to the ability that none but the first Azure Dragoon possessed.

Truly, a momentous achievement. I can still scarce believe that you were able to summon the selfsame drachen mail worn by Haldrath! To think that it had been sealed within the soul crystal all this time...

I have borne witness to many and more wonders over the years, yet none compares to you, my young dragoon. Could it be that you are...?

Ahem. Mark not my mutterings. I am certain that it was your indomitable sense of justice that resonated with the spirit of the first Azure Dragoon, prompting him to bestow the armor upon you. Yes, that is doubtless what happened.

As the being of darkness faded, so too did Nidhogg's aura subside. And now his kind have ceased their stirring. Whether this was compelled by your awakening, I cannot say. I suspect we will learn the truth of it eventually.

Estinien, my dear boy... Whatever becomes of him, he will ever be as a son to me.

I pray that he is somewhere out there still...and that he has not wholly forgotten the great man he once was.

When that darkness brushed against me, the selfsame torrent of emotions swept over me as those I experienced twenty summers past.

But there was something else besides. There was a voice, and it lamented the rift that divides dragons and men.

You will come to comprehend what I speak in due time. Till then, Forename, I pray that you will ever use your newfound strength in the name of justice.
