Quest-Related Events[edit]

After you enter the Stone Garden, you'll witness the first encounter between Arkasis and Gwendis.

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Hmph, these coven designs prove as inferior as I predicted."
Gwendis: "You must be Arkasis."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Aha. It's good to see my name is getting the recognition it deserves!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "I'll give you the honor of basking in my brilliance, if you survive the demonstration. Hahaha!"
Gwendis: "I'm going after him. You keep moving!"

Along the way you'll find him once again on several chambers, experimenting with Stone Husks which he then commands to attack you.

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "You get to test my latest formula! Lucky you! Hahaha!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Unexpected results."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "How about some comparison testing?"

Before getting to the Testing Chamber, Arkasis will send his assistans after Gwendis, who's hiding on an upper platform and she will quickly dispose of them.

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Assistants! Swat this fly! She's interfering with my work!"
Gwendis: "A bug, sire? Ah! D-don't come near Master Arkasis!"
Gwendis: "Poor chumps. Keep going! We've almost got him cornered!"

Once in the Testing Chamber, you'll fight his latest creation: the Stone Behemoth.

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Yes, yes, you'll do nicely! My assistants aren't fit to put this beauty through its paces, but you … you should yield results!"

Idling before combat:

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Hah! You are rightly awed! Marvel at my creation!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Enough gawking. Wipe the drool from your chins and get on with the test!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Do you expect me to watch you stand there agape like Rieklings watching ice thaw? Commence!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Perhaps I made it too imposing. No, no. They would approve of peaceful subjugation. I shall make the next one even larger!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Test subjects display minimal capacity for thought in the face of my brilliance. Unresponsive to even the simplest instructions."

Frost phase:

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "This will freeze it harder than an Atmoran mountain, but it will flow like an avalanche!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Even Ysgramor would quake in his boots before this mighty glacier!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Now let's try temperature tolerance at the other extreme."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "This frigid mixture can't be handled without very wooly gloves."

Attacking:

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "I'm barely shivering! It should be colder! But not cold enough to freeze the formula. Hmm."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "The frost salts to mirriam ratio is too low. A pinch more? Or substitute ice wraith essence?"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Maintains a healthy frost rime. I should try for more ice accumulation."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Note to self: artificial snow would make this feel more like home."

Changing elements:

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Begin the thaw! I have more than I need."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Finish the heat exchange! It's time for something different!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Commence defrosting!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Reset to room temperature! I have another test!"

Fire phase:

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "This mixture creates blistering heat with no weakening of the stone. Don't let this splash on you! It will contaminate my findings."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Now witness the power of the sun cast in a stone mold!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Blaze like a forge!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Now! Ignition!"

Attacking:

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "No, no. Too much heat dissipation. I must try a higher concentration."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Only a seven on my Inflagram index. Better dispersal of the formula should correct."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Still in the red spectrum? I want a brilliant white heat!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Experiment's integrity unaffected. Same cannot be said for test subjects."

Changing elements:

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Expunge that flame formula! I've seen enough!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Purge the fire! Let's proceed with the next test phase."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Expel flame formula!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "It's about to explode! Haha!"

Entering Shock damage phase:

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "No, no, no, no. No! You're damaging it! That's not how this should work!"

Shock attack:

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Too static! Too static! Needs more randomization!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Now which is more conductive …? You! Hahaha!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Lightning test!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "What a shocking development! Only joking. I work from a precise model."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "This dial makes everything more dangerous! I don't even remember why!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Stand closer together. It needs to arc. Arc. Like an arrow. Oh, never mind!"

Group wipe:

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Another brilliant success for Arkasis!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Works as designed."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Superior to the Coven's witchcraft in every way."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Genius conquers all!"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "I was really hoping for more data."
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Good test subjects are so hard to find."

After the defeat of the Stone Behemoth in the Testing Chamber, he'll rage quit.

Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "Failure? A failure? The design was flawless! Your little fly sabotaged my work, didn't she? Didn't she?"
Arkasis the Mad Alchemist: "I have to rethink. A new approach. Unassailable! No more tests! Get out! I need focus!"
