Shiris Research The scholars apprentice Shiri has studied a book from among Alasans possessions. Shiri suggests I begin my search for the third Ansei Ward in HoonDings Watch. I should seek out Priestess Sermenh once I reach HoonDings Watch.
Shiri: It seems the necromancer Alasan underestimated you ... I was hiding outside the lighthouse. After you disrupted the ritual, I went in and found Alasan's notes. I think I know where the Withered Hand has taken the third Ansei Ward.
Hero: Where have they taken it?
Shiri: HoonDing's Watch. The Withered Hand is seeking out the birthplaces of the Ansei who forged the Wards. Just as Alasan did here, they can use these locations to corrupt the Wards. The third Ansei—Halelah—was born near HoonDing's Watch.
Hero: Are you sure about this?
Shiri: I am sure of nothing, but this is my suggestion for where you should begin your search. There is a wise woman in HoonDing's Watch—Priestess Sermenh. Perhaps she can give you more insight.
Hero: I'll speak with Priestess Sermenh then.
Shiri: Since both Alasan and Uwafa have been dealt with, the Withered Hand may be considerably weakened. Perhaps the third Ansei Ward is closer at hand than you realize. If the gods are with you, I believe you will recover it quickly.
Hero: Have you spoken with Captain Rawan?
Shiri: Yes, and he passed along your message. Though I'd much prefer to stay here, I will return to Master Zohreh in Bergama shortly ... I only wanted to share what I discovered with you and Prince Azah first.
Hero: What else do you know about the third Ward?
Shiri: I could spend hours telling you about the role the third Ward has played in history, but I would only put you to sleep. All you need to know is that the Withered Hand has it, and HoonDing's Watch is the best place to start your search.
Hero: You really think the Withered Hand is weakened?
Shiri: Don't you? You've foiled their plans here and at Tu'whacca's Throne. You've defeated both Uwafa and Alasan ... I would imagine the Withered Hand is in considerable disarray.
Priestess Sermenh: Satakal eats himself, and the spirits move to the Far Shores.
Hero: Shiri said you might know about the third Ansei Ward. Goodbye.
Priestess Sermenh: Shiri? I do not know this name. Nor do I know anything about any Ansei Ward. I know only that Satakal will soon devour himself—devour us all! We must warn them ... or must we? No. It matters not.
Hero: Complete Quest.
