Emote Response

Commander Bolan
We can exchange stories after your quest is done.


Commander Bolan
Dalaran has a lot of problems, big and small. I'll take all the help I can get.
I'd do this all myself but I'm more of the delegating type.
I'm so lucky I found an adventurer like you wandering about!

The city is never short on problems. Thanks for helping out!
There's a bunch of thieves running around. We need to prepare.

Thanks for helping out! Why don't choose a reward?
The city really splurged on these rewards! Pick your favorite.
