Artix: I am so glad you are here. How can I be of service?
Artix: The undead are causing havoc all over Doomwood!
Artix: Doomwood has a lot going on inside. Do you want to know anything specific?
- Who are you?
Artix: Please accept my apology. I was so excited to actually meet you in person that I forgot to introduce myself.
Artix: My name is Artix von Krieger and I am a Paladin who has dedicated his entire life to battling the undead.
Artix: You can usually find me battling the supernatural creatures in DoomWood. The highest concentration of undead can be found here!
Artix: Moonridge is a nice town on the far eastern side of DoomWood. The entire town is a Giant Shopping MALL!
Artix: Doomwood used to be a beautiful forest... and it had a different name. I know this, because I was born and raised here before IT happened.
Artix: The Necropolis is a giant underground city of the dead. Necromancers and DeathKnights go here to train. We must destroy it!
Artix: A Paladin is a warrior of good who has dedicated their life to thwarting evil and protecting those in need.
Artix: Through love and faith a Paladin is granted the power to overcome great evil.
Artix: There are many different types of Paladins... perhaps you would like to train as a Paladin one day.
Artix: I would be honored to share with you what I have learned once we have a handle on this undead situation.
Artix: Necromancers... *furrows his brow* They are evil spell casters who abuse their magic to create and control the undead.
Artix: Necromancers enslave the life force of their victims, trapping them in their skeletal cages and controlling them like puppets.
Artix: Each undead you cross is the result of this terrible magic. But by destroying the skeleton you set the life force free!
Artix: I can hear their voices in my mind... and they want to be free. That is why I battle... I will not stop until I free them all!
Artix: Within the Necropolis lays the secrets of this Dark magic. I intend to destroy it and never let this happen to anyone again!
Artix: Will you help me defeat these Necromancers, friend?
Artix: Thank you! I know that together we can put a stop to the evil that the Necromancers are spreading!
Artix: I am sure you have your reasons. I believe in you and know that you will do the right thing.
Artix: It would be an honor to fight by your side!

Become A Paladin!
Artix: Joining the order of the Paladins is no small task, <Character>. I have to be sure that your heart is pure. It will take time.
Artix: I will not interfere with your choices but if you want to learn skills of the Necromancer or Deathknight, then I must send you elsewhere.
Purify Doom Weapon!
Artix: Well, we have defeated every necromancer in the Necropolis...
Artix: ... So I guess the only necromancer left to teach you necromancy...
Artix: ...Would be Zorbak! Remember before you decide to learn from that ebil little moglin that he was expelled from Necro U.
- Death Knight
Artix: A Death Knight is a fallen paladin who has turned down the path of corruption.
Artix: You must be fully trained as both a Paladin AND a Necromancer to become one of these dread warriors of darkness.
Artix: I only know of one place where you might learn more about Death Knights... the Tomb of Sir Malifact.
Artix: Those Doom Weapons are dangerous. VERY dangerous. I can sense the evil inside them.
Artix: The elemental darkness spirits that are bound to those weapons appear to grow stronger with each passing day.
Artix: I have certain abilities that I have never seen in another paladin, and I believe that I can cleanse these weapons.
Artix: If you come across one of these Doom Weapons... bring it to me and I can transform it into a Weapon of Destiny!
Artix: The Weapons of Destiny will be just as powerful as their counterparts, but will be infused with the power of Light!
Artix: Just make sure to get the Doom Weapons to me... before it is too late.
UPGRADE Destiny Weapon!
Artix: If you want, I can upgrade the Weapons of Destiny for you, but I will need you to gather some materials for me.
Artix: If you are upgrading your Weapon of Destiny from its most basic form, you will need some Purification Research Materials.
Artix: You can find the Purification Research Materials in Chaney's shop in Crystal Clear Lake, near Amityvale.
Artix: After that upgrade, all you will need are Undead Slayer Badges that you can gather from any of my quests for further upgrades.
Set Home Town
Artix: Awesome! You really want to make Doomwood your home and slay undead?
Zorbak: Meh, YOU again? what do you want?
Zorbak: I guess I should thank you.
Zorbak: Since you defeated all of those losers in the Necropolis, that makes me the most powerful necromancer in Doomwood.
Zorbak: (I hope Vayle didn't hear that)
Zorbak: You may be wondering what I want with Undead Slayer Badges. The answer is...
Zorbak: ... I really don't want them for anything. All I know is that Artix wants them for some reason.
Zorbak: If I get more of them, then that goody goody gets less of them. Meh heh heh!
Zorbak: Now, GET BACK TO YOUR STUDIES.... APPRENTICE!

Malifact's Ghost: My name is Sir Bram Malifact the holy Paladin of truth, justice, and peace! How can I assist you, hero?
Malifact's Ghost: Ah, I sense that you know truth about me.
Malifact's Ghost: Yes, I was the last Death Knight. I was trained as a Paladin and fought for good until I found the ring.
Malifact's Ghost: All the dark knowledge of necromancy flowed into my mind, twisting it but giving me SO MUCH RAW POWER...
Malifact's Ghost: After betraying my friends, I found that I had been doomed to haunt this crypt until my items were returned to me.
Malifact's Ghost: You now have all the knowledge and power of both a Paladin and a Necromancer but, like me, you hunger for more.
Malifact's Ghost: I will teach you what you need to know, in return for Undead Slayer Badges. If I gather enough of them, others may come looking for my horde...
Malifact's Ghost: ... and I can trick that poor fool in returning my power to me!
Become A Death Knight!
Malifact's Ghost: It is time to unlock the power of the DeathKnight.
- About DeathKnight
Malifact's Ghost: You wish to learn of the powers DeathKnights can wield? Very well.
Malifact's Ghost: DeathKnights gain power from using relics and equipment. However, such strength never comes cheap.
Malifact's Ghost: Equipping items related to DeathKnights will empower you in many ways, offensively, defensively, and beyond.
Malifact's Ghost: Moreover, as a master of life and death, you can sacrifice your health for even greater power, or recover over time.
Malifact's Ghost: When in Consuming Presence, the blade icon in combat will glow. You'll lose health on each attack, but you'll gain more power.
Malifact's Ghost: If you click on the blade icon, you can swap your presence between Consuming and Healing presence.
Malifact's Ghost: Mastery of knowing when to swap your presence is key to survival and combat as a DeathKnight.
Malifact's Ghost: The runes on the blade icon will also glow depending on the number of DeathKnight relics you have equipped.
Malifact's Ghost: DeathKnight relics include any items that were connected to the DeathKnights of the past.
Malifact's Ghost: I have a selection I am willing to part with, for a price, of course. DeathKnight relics are key to bringing out the full potential of your abilities.
Malifact's Ghost: Of course, one of the best ways to learn is to try things out for yourself. You seem sturdy enough to withstand some experimentation.

- Train DeathKnight Armor
- Equip DeathKnight Armor - equips DeathKnight class.
- Unequip DeathKnight Armor
Malifact's Ghost: I sense your eagerness. Tell me which you wish to obtain.
- What are these?
Malifact's Ghost: While you are not cursed as I and many other DeathKnights were, you can still use some of our equipment.
Malifact's Ghost: I have a small collection of DeathKnight items that I have found. I will give you them in exchange for some Undead Slayer Badges.
Malifact's Ghost: I can also teach you how to empower them using certain resources. It will not be easy to collect the necessary items though.
Malifact's Ghost: I also have a special set of items I can give you. They were used by one of the most powerful DeathKnights, Lord Zeclem.
Malifact's Ghost: I found some of his items and saved them for one who may be able to use them. No one is quite sure where he went though...
Malifact's Ghost: I require a special form of currency that many use in exchange for those. I wish to study it to learn why it is regarded above gold.
Malifact's Ghost: All of these items would increase your power. Choose any you wish.
