"One of my precious streets has a giant hole in the middle of it... another hole in the middle of it. This is a tragedy, a travesty, a disaster of epic proportions. What will the populace think? What will the emperor think? I've appropriated imperial funds to fix it, but I need someone to investigate the crack and ensure the street is safe before I hire workers. You never know what might be down there, in the dirt, what with the plague and all. Will you help me? I can use my limitless monetary resources to make it worth your while."
Accept: "Limitless monetary resources? Say no more."
Reject: "I hurt my back."
When asked about quest: "Investigate the chasm in Bukdek Byway. It must be deemed safe before I'll allow workers down there."

Cinematic Dialogue 1

Ogden Stonehealer: "All right, you lot! Pick up the pace!"
Ogden Stonehealer: "Take all the kegs you can. We're going to need them."
Ogden Stonehealer: "And find Vekk! We need him to open the gate out of here."
<party leader>: "What's going on?"
Ogden Stonehealer: "Where did you come from?"
<party leader>: "Are those explosives? There's a city above us."
Ogden Stonehealer: "I know there's . . . Hang on. Vekk! There you are!"
Vekk: "We've got trouble, Ogden."
Ogden Stonehealer: "You get the gate working. We'll handle the trouble."
Vekk: "It's not that easy. The Destroyers have completely overrun the Central Transfer Chamber."
Ogden Stonehealer: "Blast! If the chamber is captured, there's no way back."
<party leader>: "Wait. The quakes have opened up other passages. There should be another way out."
Vekk: "The bookah's right. There is another gate not far from here. But the Destroyers are right behind me."
Ogden Stonehealer: "You'd best be coming with us. If we're split up, the Destroyers will eat us alive"
<party leader>: "What are these "Destroyers?" For that matter, what are you?"
Vekk: "Me? Right now, I'm you best hope of getting out of here alive, bookah."
Ogden Stonehealer: "We can chat later. We're going to need your help if we're going to reach that gate."
Ogden Stonehealer: "Everyone, ready to move out! There are Destroyers coming!"
Ogden Stonehealer: "Never mind. They're here!"

Intermediate Dialogue 2

Vekk: "The Destroyers are near. We have no choice but to quickly flee to the Asura Gate."
Ogden Stonehealer: "Flee! Flee! We cannot win!"
Dwarven Demolitionist: "Flee! Flee! We cannot win!"

Burol Ironfist: "Flee! Flee! We cannot win!"

Intermediate Dialogue 4

Intermediate Dialogue 5

Vekk: "The gate! Go through the gate! It's that big purple glowing thing!"

Cinematic Dialogue 2

Ogden Stonehealer: "Vekk, disable that gate. Everyone else, set up a perimeter."
<party leader>: "Where are we?"
Vekk: "The Far Shiverpeaks. More importantly, we're away from the Destroyers."
Ogden Stonehealer: "There are few Dwarves up here, mostly scouts and Stone Summit exiles. Hold on!"
Ogden Stonehealer: "No one move."
<party leader>: "What's wrong?"
Ogden Stonehealer: "They're called the Norn. They're big, tough, and very, VERY bad-tempered. We may have to fight our way out."
Jora: "Your friend is half right. Not many Dwarves come up here. Or humans, for that matter."
<party leader>: "There are humans up here, then?"
Jora: "Yes. If you survive long enough, you may meet them."
Jora: "But do not worry. You don't have to fight me. I am hunting bigger prey than you."
<party leader>: "Where do we go from here, Ogden?"
Ogden Stonehealer: "We go the only way we can go: forward."


Against the Destroyers


Talk to Raiugyon and learn of the chasm in the street that has opened in the Bukdek Byway. It is located a very short way from the Kaineng Center portal, so just follow the quest marker. Entering the chasm will take you to the Tunnels Below Cantha.

Upon arrival, make your way through the tunnels. You will encounter some various Am Fah, that should be no problem for level 20 characters. Meet up with Ogden Stonehealer and Vekk.

After a short cutscene, you will have 3 minutes to escape through to the gate. Just follow Ogden and Vekk, they will lead you to the Asura gate. You are given the quest reward automatically when you reach the gate.
