    Eclesius is a very problematic NPC when it comes to creating his transcript. Some interesting dialogue mechanics have been implemented for this NPC. Because Eclesius differs greatly from other NPCs, the following transcription may not be complete and may be a bit unclear.This transcription was made after completing The Scatterbrained Sorcerer Quest. During the quest, Eclesius reacts differently to certain words.

    Player: hi / hello
    Eclesius: Dear Player, how good to see you again! If you’re here for your tasks, go right ahead.
    Player: Assistant
    Eclesius: As my assistant you can carry out daily tasks and solve missions for me.
    Player: Eclesius
    Eclesius: Yes?
    Player: First Dragon
    Eclesius: He was bested in combat, but the hero who killed him, was that humble that he never claimed the fame.
    Player: Job
    Eclesius: I have a lot of work to do. I’m a very wise sorcerer, you see. So I’m busy creating magic fields, inventing new spells, reading books, summoning creatures… all very complex. That’s why I need assistants for the easy work.
    Player: Key
    Eclesius: Where did I put that key, erm… I think it’s somewhere in my lab. But then again my memory is not the best.
    Player: Mission / Quest
    Eclesius: I think all important missions are solved. At least I can’t remember anything else right now. But you can still do some tasks for me.
    Player: Name
    Eclesius: My name is Eclesius. And I’m quite happy that my memory works almost all of the time.
    Player: Sorry
    Eclesius: Yes, you SHOULD be sorry!
    Player: Thais
    Eclesius: I moved away from there for a reason. I just can’t remember what the reason was.
    Player: Turian / Frog
    Eclesius: Oh dear. It’s all my fault that he is the way he is now. That much I can remember. <sniff>
    Player: Venore
    Eclesius: It’s to the far east of here. You can either reach it by ship or walk there, but it’s QUITE a walk. I think.
    Player: bye
    Eclesius: Oh, have you already finished your tasks? Then, uh, have a pleasant day! Don’t forget to drop by tomorrow!

    After saying the word tasks Eclesius asks us our name. We can give him our name or the name of a player from our server.

    Player: Task
    Eclesius: I have five tasks which, ideally, need to be done once a day. Sweep the house, polish my crystal ball, feed my fish, exterminate bats and prevent the apocalypse. …
    Eclesius: … wow, I remembered them all. Now if you remember to do them and I remember to pay you for it, I think we’ll all be very happy! …
    Eclesius: Just remind me of the task you wanted to do and go right ahead, uh… what’s your name again?
    Player: Haishen
    Eclesius: Was that your name…? Haishen? Really? <scratches head> Fine then… hello Haishen!

    If we ask Eclesius about the word “hint” he will ask us what hint we are asking about. No matter what we say Eclesius will respond with one of the random statements.

    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Aha… I see.
    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Can’t you see that I’m thinking of a complex magical formula and do not wish to be bothered?!
    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Eh? No way.
    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: How strange. I can’t seem to remember that.
    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Hum. You seem a little confused, none of this makes sense to me.
    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: I almost forgot about that. Good you reminded me.
    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: I don’t really understand. But then again, you probably wouldn’t understand my magic formulae either.
    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: I guess my memory doesn’t work like it used to.
    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: I have no idea what you are talking about, but there are important matters at hand. I think.
    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Oh well… anyway.

    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Really? That’s interesting.
    Player: hint

    Player: Random Word

    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Most curious.
    Player: hint

    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Strange. <scratches head>
    Player: hint
    Eclesius: Hint? What kind of hint?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: What? No… I can’t believe that.

    Eclesius reacts to the word ‘thank’ in a similar way. If we thank him, he asks what we are thanking him for. Whatever we reply to Eclesius, he will respond with one of his random statements.

    Player: thank
    Eclesius: What are you thanking me for? <scratches head>
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Aha… I see.
    Player: thank
    Eclesius: What are you thanking me for? <scratches head>
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Can’t you see that I’m thinking of a complex magical formula and do not wish to be bothered?!

    Eclesius: What? No… I can’t believe that.

    In the same way, Eclesius reacts to the phrase ‘lost sandals’. It is a quest-related phrase. If we say it, Eclesius will ask us if we remember that we have already done this mission. Whatever we answer him he will say one of the same random statements.

    Player: lost sandals
    Eclesius: You can’t have lost them. We’re already done with that mission, don’t you remember??
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Aha… I see.

    Eclesius: You can’t have lost them. We’re already done with that mission, don’t you remember??

    If we ask Eclesius about ‘magical oil’ he will ask us what we found the right ingredients for. If we then answer ‘Yes’, Eclesius will respond normally. However, if we use another keyword, Eclesius will forget what he said. If we say the random word again it will respond with one of the random words just like it did when responding to ‘hint’ words.

    Player: magical oil
    Eclesius: Ah! Have you found the recipe and brought me the necessary ingredients?
    Player: yes
    Eclesius: No, no. Even I can see that you must have forgotten one or more of the ingredients. Just read the recipe properly, we can’t afford to make any mistakes here.
    Player: magical oil
    Eclesius: Ah! Have you found the recipe and brought me the necessary ingredients?
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Uhm. Huh? I just forgot what I was about to say.
    Player: Random Word
    Eclesius: Really? That’s interesting.

    After the word ‘tasks’, we can say one of the keywords about tasks. However, because we can do something wrong or in different ways while doing a task, Eclesius says a different statement. The time we spend doing the task also matters. If we take a task and do it the next day, Eclesius will know about it and will also say something different. Below are just a few statements related to tasks. This part of transcription is definitely incomplete.

    Player: Task
    Eclesius: I have five tasks which, ideally, need to be done once a day. Sweep the house, polish my crystal ball, feed my fish, `nate bats and prevent the apocalypse. …
    Eclesius: … wow, I remembered them all. Now if you remember to do them and I remember to pay you for it, I think we’ll all be very happy! …
    Eclesius: Just remind me of the task you wanted to do and go right ahead, uh… what’s your name again?
    Player: Feed
    Eclesius: Feed? Feed who? My fish? Oh yes. But when I looked at it earlier, it seemed as hungry as ever! What is taking you so long?! Go and feed it!
    Player: Feed
    Eclesius: Feed my fish? Oh, right. <scratches head> So… have you fed it?
    Player: yes
    Eclesius: But the fish doesn’t speak at all! I’m sure you must’ve done something wrong when feeding it. Please try again.
    Player: Sweep
    Eclesius: I told you to sweep the house? Really? Well, you seem to have taken such a long time that everything is dirty again. I guess you should start over.
    Player: Sweep
    Eclesius: Well, what are you waiting for? Sweep all the furniture in the house! Or are you done already?
    Player: yes
    Eclesius: No, no, no – achoo! I can still smell the dust in the ai.. – achoo! – air. Take that broom and clean every piece of furniture in my living room and bedroom!
    Player: sweep
    Eclesius: Well, what are you waiting for? Sweep all the furniture in the house! Or are you done already?
    Player: no
    Eclesius: Well, then off to work! Go on, get on with you!
    Player: Prevent
    Eclesius: What’s wrong? Are you afraid to go down there? There’s absolutely no reason for that. Me? Erm… my knees, you know. Stairs are such a trial for me. Go on! Secure the cage and calm the demon!
    Player: Exterminate
    Eclesius: You’re still not done with the bats, I can hear them flapping and flapping and flapping! Argh! Do something!
    Player: Polish
    Eclesius: Yes! I remember! You were supposed to polish my crystal ball, weren’t you? But when I took a look at it earlier, it was still clouded. You’d better start right away!
    Player: Polish
    Eclesius: Yes! I remember! You were supposed to polish my crystal ball, weren’t you? Have you done it yet?
    Player: yes
    Eclesius: No no no! Whatever you did to it, it had nothing to do with polishing! I can’t even see my face in it, let alone the future. I hope you can do better than that.
    Player: Polish
    Eclesius: Yes! I remember! You were supposed to polish my crystal ball, weren’t you? Have you done it yet?
    Player: no
    Eclesius: Well then, what are you waiting for? Go away and get on with whatever it was you were doing!
    Player: Exterminate (after killing the cat)
    Eclesius: Don’t even THINK that I’ll let you into my attic again, you cat killer! And don’t count on me forgetting about that incident!
    Player: Exterminate
    Eclesius: The bats? They have been quiet for a while now. Were you able to kill a few of the pests?
    Player: yes
    Eclesius: No! I can still hear them! Kill more of them, I can’t concentrate!
    Player: exterminate
    Eclesius: The bats? They have been quiet for a while now. Were you able to kill a few of the pests?
    Player: no
    Eclesius: Well then get on with it! I’m suffering here!
    Eclesius: Prevent
    Eclesius: What’s wrong? Are you afraid to go down there? There’s absolutely no reason for that. Me? Erm… my knees, you know. Stairs are such a trial for me. Go on! Secure the cage and calm the demon!
    Player: Prevent
    Eclesius: Did you prevent the apocalypse, my brave assistant?
    Player: Yes
    Eclesius: You haven’t! You must’ve forgotten something important. Go back down there and finish the task, or we might not see another tomorrow! If you need magical oil, don’t hesitate to come to me with the ingredients.
    Player: Prevent
    Eclesius: Did you prevent the apocalypse, my brave assistant?
    Player: No
    Eclesius: What are you waiting for?! It might only be a matter of minutes before the demon breaks free! Hurry up! If you need magical oil, don’t hesitate to come to me with the ingredients.

    If Eclesius asks us during the task statement if we have completed the task, we can deceive him by answering a random word

    Player: Prevent
    Eclesius: Did you prevent the apocalypse, my brave assistant?
    Player: random word
    Eclesius: Erm… wait… what were we just talking about?
    Player: random word
    Eclesius: Can’t you see that I’m thinking of a complex magical formula and do not wish to be bothered?!

    Player: sweep
    Eclesius: Well, what are you waiting for? Sweep all the furniture in the house! Or are you done already?
    Player: random word
    Eclesius: What? Who? I think I just forgot what we were talking about. What was it?
    Player: random word
    Eclesius: Most curious.

    During the Scatterbrained Sorcerer’s Quest, it’s worth asking Eclesius about various things and misleading him in your statements. Eclesius then responds with very strange and sometimes funny statements.

    Player: hi
    Eclesius: Oh. OH. Is that… the result…?
    Player: bye
    Eclesius: What do you mean, ‘bye’?? You stay here and finish that mission! Your only excuse to leave would be if you have to go pee!
    Player: pee
    Eclesius: Argh! Not now! But… okay, I don’t want my floor dirtied. But once I beam you up, you’ll have to start over with the levers! Still want to go?

    Player: mission
    Eclesius: Wait, wait, I know you. I also know what you wanted from me. Errrm… ah yes! The milk delivery! Right?
    Player: yes
    Eclesius: Well, where is it?? And what did Arthur say?
