In each game of the Maj'Eyal: The Age of Ascendancy campaign you will find exactly 9 escort quests, spread across the zones of Maj'Eyal. These escorts are randomly chosen from all the available types, so there is no guarantee that you will meet any particular escort in one game. Escort quests can also appear in the Infinite Dungeon campaign.
The location of escort quests are determined at your character's birth, but can only appear on levels within the following zones:. Escorts cannot plot their paths through closed doors.
If all routes to their destination portal are blocked by closed doors, then neither the escort nor portal will spawn on that level. The player will have to open the doors and revisit the level for the escort to spawn.
Additionally, if an escort is ased by the game to spawn in a level, and upon entering it there are no immediately visible unoccupied floor tiles on the same turn that you enter the level, then the escort will not spawn until you can enter the level and immediately see at least one unoccupied floor tile on the turn that you enter.
Escorts will attempt to walk directly towards their destination portal.
The path chosen depends primarily on the terrain, and generally ignores any creatures along the way. Players can thus stand in the path of the escort to stop them from moving.
Escorts will only try to step around the player if doing so would be bring them just as close to their destination as the tile being occupied by the player is. On levels in which there are friendly or neutral NPCs, the player can enlist their help to block escorts e.
Summoned creatures can also fulfill this function.
Blocking an escort will allow the player to gain valuable rest time and refresh cooldowns. The player can ask the escorts to "wait a few turns" through the right-click context menu or the appropriate hotkey.
This order will cause the escort to stand still for 10 turns, and the command itself has a 30 turn cooldown. One relatively safe way to protect an escort is to order them to wait, rush ahead to clear a few enemies, and then quickly run back to block the escort's path again before they move too far, rest to refresh cooldowns, then repeat.
It is much easier to carry out this procedure if the player has access to movement speed buffs e. With appropriate terrain and sufficient movement speed, it is also possible to make an escort back up.
The player just has to quickly move behind the escort, then walk into the tile the escort is standing on, forcing them to exchange positions with the player. Repeating this procedure will allow the escort to be placed in almost any arbitrary position.
Another way to reposition escorts is to use a knockback talent, then heal them up afterwards. This can be done, for example, with a torque of gale force lower level for less damage and a totem of healing.
Escorts can be broadly classified into melee and ranged types. Melee escorts have a higher health pool, but they will also happily run straight into enemies along their path and start fighting them.
Ranged escorts are more frail, but they will attempt to move away from enemies they see while calling out for help. Beware that the escort's line of sight for checking threats can be blocked by the player.
This is particularly noticeable if the escort is following behind the player in a one tile wide corridor, as they will happily tailgate the player, leaving no room for the player to back up. In these situations, it may be necessary for the player to first step aside, so the escort can see the threat ahead and back up.
Some digging may be required for this maneuver to work.
You may betray escorts with arcane abilities to Zigur for an alternate set of rewards, as long as you meet both conditions below:. The rewards that can be obtained from escort quests are detailed below. Upon completion of each escort quest, you may select one reward from the appropriate list.
You will have the option of giving the selected reward to a party member that satisfies the following conditions:. More specifically, Alchemist golemsWorm That Walksand Mecharachnid pets are allowed to receive escort quest rewards.
Learning a talent in a category that was originally hidden to you will set its mastery level to 1. Category rewards will reveal the category as locked and set its mastery level to 1. A category point will still be required to unlock the category.
If a category has already been revealed by a escort its option will not be present. Note: Learning Precognition will also grant you the Spacetime Tuning talent if you did not already have it. This will allow you to set your desired paradox level when you rest. Note: Only one tinker escort can spawn per game.
Note: The Tinker escort must be unlocked. From Tales of Maj'Eyal.
