Speak with Yayake and answer "Yes" to her question.


There are no journal entries for this quest.


Yayake: Welcome to the Thaumaturges' Guild. It is fate that has guided your steps here, friend.
Yayake: Within these hallowed halls, the arts of devastation are taught—primeval magicks with which to bring about an enemy's ruin.
Yayake: If you would join our ranks and wield the power of thaumaturgy, I urge you to seize this moment and confide in me your arcane ambitions.

Do you wish to join the Thaumaturges' Guild?

  • No
Yayake: Your denial is most unsettling!
Yayake: Ah, but I see the stars were not yet aligned. Your time will come, and I shall be waiting.
  • Yes
Yayake: Yes. There truly was no other answer, was there? Lean closer now, and I shall whisper to you of thaumaturgy's beginnings.
Yayake: The nation of Ul'dah inherited its traditions from ancient Belah'dia, a city founded by the descendants of the first mages.
Yayake: The secrets of these illustrious sorcerers were ultimately entrusted to the priests of the Order of Nald'thal, who have passed them down from generation to generation ever since.
Yayake: Focused and refined over centuries of use in the Order's funereal rites, the arcane magicks of our ancestors eventually emerged as the art we now know as thaumaturgy.
Yayake: A freezing blizzard to halt corruption; a raging fire to cleanse the corpse; a bolt of lightning to expel the sins of mortal life... The dweomers employed in the preparation of the dead are equally efficacious when applied to the living.
Yayake: Thus does our guild thrive in the depths of Arrzaneth Ossuary—a sanctuary devoted to Thal, the divine arbiter of the afterlife.
Yayake: What say you, then, adventurer? If you would plumb the abyssal depths of thaumaturgy, let our learned sages guide your descent!
Yayake: Ah, but before you leap into the darkness, you must prove to our guildmasters that you are possessed of the spiritual fortitude necessary to look upon that which waits therein.
Yayake: When you are ready to submit to the judgment of our most eminent mages, say the word.
