Scarred Lance

  • Guildmaster Ywain would set you a final trial.
  • Your visit to the Lancers' Guild has taken an unexpected turn─it would seem that Foulques has attacked a party of novice lancers in the Central Shroud, meaning the trial must wait. Ywain bids you hasten to your comrades' aid, granting you full discretion to use all necessary force if it will serve to prevent further bloodshed.
  • According to the lancer you rescued, Foulques was headed in the direction of the North Shroud. Intercept him before he has the chance to do any more harm.
  • You have prevailed over the deranged Foulques. Take word of his demise to Ywain, who awaits at the Lancers' Guild.
  • For the courage you displayed in defeating Foulques, Ywain declares you ready to master a devastating new technique: Lance Charge. Having learned all you can from your guildmaster, you set your sights upon challenges yet unknown. Keeping your lessons close to heart, go forth and blaze a new trail with lance in hand.

Ah, Forename. Ever a sight for sore eyes.

By your return, I take it you are ready for the final trial. Very well, let us─
G-Guildmaster Ywain!
You are wounded! What has happened!?

We were attacked, a Duskwight we trained in the forest.

He was... He was impossibly strong...a demon... He kept screaming something about...teaching us true courage.
No. Not him. Not Foulques...

We the northwest corner of the Central Shroud...when it happened. I was able to get away...but the others... You must help the others!


Be strong, man!

I am sorry, Forename─the trial must wait.

Pray make haste to the Central Shroud and help your comrades.

And Forename─should Foulques force your what must be done. Twelve speed you on your way.
Quest Accepted

So Foulques is no more...

His was a tragic tale...and one that might have been so different. Had fate not dealt him such a cruel hand, he could well have commanded a place of honor within these halls.

But it avails us naught to dwell upon what might have been. It is enough that you are still with us, Forename.

Lest you wonder about your final trial...there will be none─I have seen all I need to see. You have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that yours is a genuine courage.

In recognition of this, I shall pass to you the secrets of Lance Charge, one of the most potent abilities in our arsenal.

You are a lancer in your own right now─there is naught more I can teach you. From here onwards, it is up to you to seek out such challenges as will make you grow.

Like attracts like, and the strong are drawn to strength. Just as I once knew for a certainty that I was destined to face the Lord of the Bramble Patch, so too will you find─or be found by─an adversary of equal worth.

None can say what fate will bring, but armed with your courage, there is naught you need fear. Keep close to your heart the lessons you have learned here, and go forth to blaze a new trail with spear in hand.

Edit Proof of Might's Dialogue

This fight includes two instanced fights. The first is against a pack of Lindwurms attacking Thibain. Begin by dealing with the ones on you, but keep an eye on Thibain's HP. When it gets low, take action against the raptors (Or heal/buff Thibain) to get them off him. Like most fights, you can take advantage of enemy weaponskills to flank them for Heavy Thrust. Other than that, keep up your combos, heal with Life Surge (Preferably on a fully comboed full thrust), and you shall see victory before long. The second fight is against Foulques himself. Much like the previous fight, you should take advantage of when he stands still during a weaponskill to get off heavy thrust and boost your damage. Eventually he'll start using Ring of Ice, an AoE spell which will leave a damage field o n the floor. It's recommended to fight him near the edge of one so when he uses it again, it overlaps the previous circle and thus removes less of the battlefield. He will also eventually summon three Spurned Souls. These have low HP, and should be taken care of before returning to Foulques. With any luck he'll be defeated before long.
