This quest is part of the Witches of Dathomir
: << Walkabout, Part II
At this point, you can decide to support either that Singing Mountain Clan
. Through completing quests for Rubina, you will slowly start to show your support for either Clan.
Once you have completed eight quests for Rubina, you are able to continue onto the next stage of the Theme Park.
You can, of course, continue to complete the missions to complete the collections. You can even do so to gain favor with the other
side if you wish to complete the other version of the Theme Park.
If you wish to return to her later, she will be located by the lake, where you first met her.
/way dathomir -3176 21 3183 Rubina;
: I wish for you to assist me with a few small tasks. I require an agent to infiltrate either the Singing Mountain Clan or the Nightsisters. That agent is to be you. First, however you must perform tasks to gain favor with the Clan Mother of your choice.
You have three conversation options to choose.
- You: Ok, give me a task!
- Will allow you to choose one of three tasks to complete.
- You: I'd like to get more information.
- Will give you more flavor text and background information on the clans.
- You: How am I doing in my attempt to gain favor with a Clan Mother?
- Will show you how far along you are.
- After completing eight quests, this option is how you proceed to the next stage of the Theme Park.
Ok, give me a task!
This conversation option is used to get a quest from Rubina. You can choose from three different types of quests.
The first type is a gather-type quest, where you will need to look for certain kinds of herbs and collect them. This one doesn't require combat, but takes the longest amount of time in my opinion.
The second type is a slayer quest, where you will need to travel to a waypoint and kill either five mutant Rancors or five Spider Clan members. This one does require combat, and could be pretty difficult for under-geared players. The NPCs you must kill are level ~75 elites.
The final type of quest is just traveling to a given waypoint and speaking with an outcast witch. This quest is the easiest to complete and the quickest in my opinion.
Each type of quest has a decoration item and a collection tied to it.
: There are a number of ways you can assist the clans and gain favor. Three come most readily to mind: gather herbs, eliminate enemies, and offer wisdom.
You: Tell me more about the three options.
: Of course, which would you like to learn more about?
Again, you are given three conversation options to choose.
- You: Herbs.
- You: Enemies.
- You: Wisdom.
All of the quests are repeatable and lead to collections that reward decoration items.
Toil and Trouble
: The Singing Mountain Clan use the various herbal plants found around Dathomir for their healing properties; the Nightsisters... well, what can heal can often harm.
You: Where can I find these herbal plants?
: Oh, all over Dathomir; there are likely several near you even now! Just look carefully as you travel and I am sure you will find plenty.
You: I would like to gather the herbs they need.
: Bring them back and place them in a basket to show which Clan you support.
Following Quest: Toil and Trouble
Eliminate the Mutant Rancors or Eliminate members of the Spider Clan
: The Rancor of Dathomir are actually quite intelligent and serve the Clans in a number of ways. However the bestial Mutant Rancor are an abomination to both clans. Similarly, the Spider Clan work against Singing Mountain Clan and Nightsister alike.
You: I can handle both of those, so what do I do after I have eliminated them?
: Collect proof of your deeds. Many of the Witches of the Spider Clan have a patch of giant spider silk sewn into their clothing. And, of course, the Mutant Rancor is well known for their... teeth. I will send you to an area where you can typically find the type of pray that you're seeking.
You: I would like to assist in eliminating the enemies of the Clan.
: Bring back proof of your deeds and place them in the basket of your choice to indicate which clan you support.
You are assigned one of the quests below randomly. If you receive one and wish to do the other, delete the quest from your journal and speak with Rubina again.
Hearts and Minds
: Among the Witches of the Singing Mountain, crimes are punishable by exile. In order to return to her Clan, she must spend time in purification; at least a year and a day. Sometimes, however, these exiles choose to continue the path they began and join the Nightsisters.
You: That still doesn't explain the wisdom part...
: Some of these exiled Outcasts are at a crossroads. The right word could influence them greatly in deciding to return to the Singing Mountain or become a Nightsister.
You: I would like to offer my wisdom.
: Show which Clan you support by convincing an Outcast to join it.
Following Quest: Hearts and Minds
I'd like to get more information
This conversation option is used to get some flavor text, lore, and more information about the two clans.
: Of course, dearie, what do you want to ask about?
You: Why do I need to gain favor?
: You don't expect the Clans to let just anyone in, do you? Using the tasks you perform I can get you a foot in the door, so to speak. of course, if you help one clan, you anger the other but this is the way these things go sometimes.
You: If I help one clan the other won't like me?
: Correct. These Clans are completely opposed to each other so as you aid one you anger the other. But fear not, though there are two paths you can go by, in the long run, there is time to change the trail you follow.
You: Once I start to help one Clan how do I change?
: Simple, my pet, you do more to help the other clan. The tasks I present you can be repeated many times and in the end it is up to you to choose who will benefit.
You: Why do you need an angent to infiltrate a Clan?
: I am too well known by both clans to do it myself, of course. When you have shown enough support for one clan or the other, I will present your case to that Clan Mother and speak on your behalf so that they may allow you inside.
You: Who are the Witches of Dathomir, anyway?
: There was once an Outworlder, Allya, who was banished from her people. She arrived on Dathomir and, through her great magics, tamed the mighty Rancor and gathered the peoples into a single great clan. The women became daughters of Allya and the men their slaves.
You: Who are the Singing Mountain Clan?
: Over time, the daughters of Allya have become known to outworlders as the Witches of Dathomir and have splintered into a number of smaller clans. The largest of these is the clan of the Singing Mountain.
You: Who or what are the Nightsisters?
: Witches of Dathomir who break with Allya's Book of Law are exiled so live in solitude and contemplation until they are purified and can return to the Singing Mountain. Some never return. Many of these have gathered together in their own clan. In Outworlder terms they would be the Sith to the Sing Mountain Clan Jedi.
You: Who or what is this Spider Clan?
: Not all exiled Outcasts that do fail to return to the Singing Mountain join with the Nightsisters. Some of these have banded together and learned to use the Great Spiders as other Witches do Rancor. They are the mutual enemy of Singing Mountain and Nightsister alike.
You: Do these witches really use magic?
: That would depend on your definition of magic. What the Daighters of Allya call spells, Outworlder Jai... Jedi... call the Force. Who is to say which is the more correct?
You: What was it you wanted me to do, again?
: Just a few simple tasks, my pet, to influence one of the Clan Mothers; the choice is yours.
How am I doing in my attempt to gain favor with a Clan Mother?
This conversation option is used to check on your progress to continue in the theme park.
- With no quests completed:
- Rubina: You currently stand balanced in the twilight and show no real preference toward the Nightsisters or the Singing Mountain Clan.
- After one quest completed:
- Rubina: You have not yet shown support for either Clan.
- After two quests completed:
- Rubina: You have shown a slight leaning toward the Nightsisters/Singing Mountain Clan.
- After five quests completed:
- Rubina: You have given most of your support to the Nightsisters/Singing Mountain Clan.
- After eight quests completed:
- Rubina: You have shown complete support for the Nightsisters/Singing Mountain Clan! As long as your support remains unwavering I'm confident that I can intercede on your behalf with the Nightsisters/Singing Mountain Clan Mother.
Next stage of the Theme Park
After completing a total of eight quests from Rubina for a given clan, she will send you to them.
: You have done very well. I have spread the word among the Nightsisters/Singing Mountain Clan and they now know your name. I believe they will now trust you enough to talk to you. Use this to gain their full trust.
You: Very well, where do I go?
Singing Mountain Clan
: You will need to travel to the Singing Mountain.
: You will need to travel to the Nightsister Stronghold.
