Maronne wishes you to reaffirm your desire to join the Weavers' Guild.

— In-game description





  • Maronne wishes you to reaffirm your desire to join the Weavers' Guild.
  • Maronne bids you present yourself to the man in charge of guild operations, a towering Roegadyn named Redolent Rose.
  • Redolent Rose grants you leave to study weaving. After providing you with a sewing needle, he instructs you to hold it as you would if you were about to attempt a stitch, and present yourself for inspection.


Accepting the quest

Maronne: Are you ready to meet the guildmaster? First impressions are everything, and you do not want to present yourself poorly.
Maronne: Excellent! Though I do wonder if your attire is appropriate for the occasion...
Maronne: You will find the esteemed Redolent Rose supervising guild operations over yonder.
Maronne: He is... How shall I put this? He is...relentless in his pursuit of excellence.
Maronne: So long as you demonstrate that you are similarly committed, he will treat you fairly and with respect.

Speaking to Redolent Rose

Redolent Rose: What do we have here? Another adventurer in search of thrills and excitement?
Redolent Rose: Shall I dance you a merry jig? No? Well, if this fails to please you, I suggest you run along——perhaps the women of the Ruby Road Exchange will be more to your liking.
Redolent Rose: ...Oh, so you mean to become a weaver? Then we have something to discuss after all.
Redolent Rose: I shall be blunt——weaving is an art, and, like all true artists, we must make sacrifices and suffer for our craft. So tell me, adventurer: are you prepared to suffer?

Are you prepared to suffer?

  • No
Redolent Rose: Then why are you here? Don't you know what you want? Or is it that you don't like what getting what you want entails? Either way, I don't want you.
  • Yes
Redolent Rose: So you say, but only time will tell.
Redolent Rose: In any case, you'll need equipment to get started. This needle should suffice for now.
Redolent Rose: I need not explain what a needle is, I trust?
Redolent Rose: Good. Then hold it as you would when sewing, and show me you're ready to begin.
