Daimyo: *Yap Yap Yap* *Yap Yap Yap* *Yap Yap Yap*
<Character>: What is it boy?
Daimyo: *Yap Yap Yap*
<Character>: Artix? What about Artix?
Daimyo: *Yap Yap Yap*
<Character>: Oh no... Artix fell down a WELL?
Daimyo: *Yap Yap!*
<Character>: He's DEAD?
Daimyo: Arf! *Yap Yap Yap Yap*
<Character>: Oh...he's FIGHTING UNDEAD! I see. We'd better go help, lead the way boy!
<Character>: Hello down there! Are you alright?
<Character>: What's wrong!?
???: There is some Paladin down here and he is wiping us all out!
Artix: Be still fiend! Prepare thyself for the divine, holy, retribution exorcism aura of justice!
<Character>: This isn't going how I imagined. HANG ON ARTIX, I'M COMING!
Once inside the well, you can choose to look up, or climb up. Looking up makes the character speak:
<Character>: Weird...From here the top of the well looks like some sort of Ring.
Artix: Well met friend! Your timing is amazing... this next fiend looks like the BOSS!
<Character>: You know Artix, normally in a rescue quest the hostage is not fighting his way to the boss with monsters fleeing in terror...
<Character>: I mean, seriously... what are you doing in here?
Artix: Well, this spooky little girl told me to jump down here to get her ring. She said I only had 7 days, so it must be important!
<Character>: *sigh* Now we are going to have to make a list of people (and things) not to take quests from... alright, let's battle!
*Invites Artix automatically as Guest B.*
For those of us who are farming this quest and find Artix a waste of time in battle, there is a way to prevent him from joining your team. When he talks to you right before the boss, click your EXP bar instead of the rest of the screen. Instead of advancing the text, your character will walk. Simply walk toward the boss. Artix won't be in your team.
Pop-up headlines during the quest:
Hmmm...no WELLcome mat.
These potions are supposed to taste like cherry, but they never do!
A sign reads "All's well that ends in a well."
