Ohmonir, to the east, is in charge of the first test. He will use two riddles to test your intelligence. You need to select the correct item from the tables, and talk to Ohmonir after you have made your guess. Possible riddles are:

Two bodies have I, two joined into one,
The more I stand still the faster I run.
I flip on my head, Some watch me with dread.
What am I?
Answer: Hourglass

I'm always smiling, but I never laugh.
I once loved life, from cat to calf.
I'm always staring, but I cannot see.
I once held secrets, those given to me.
What am I?
Answer: Skull

My life is measured in hours,
I serve by being devoured.
Thin, I am quick,
Fat, I am slow,
What am I?
Answer: Candle

Friend to soldiers, guardsmen, and mercs.
Scarred from battle, unbowed by hurt.
I always face forward when battle is joined.
When on the march, I watch from behind.
What am I?
Answer: Shield

I attend every battle.
I attend every duel.
My tooth is sharp.
My swing is cruel.
What am I?
Answer: Sword

Keep me with you to survive
In the fields of death few keep alive
I am like a taller knife
deadly enough to end a life.
Answer: Sword

Always smiling but cannot laugh
Always staring but cannot see
Once held secrets and dreams
Answer: Skull

When young, I'm sweet in the sun.
When middle-aged,I'm the life of the party.
When old, I'm worth my weight in gold.
When I'm gone, everyone laments my absence.
Answer: Wine

I have lots to say but never speak,
I open but you cannot walk through me,
I have a spine but no bones.
Answer: Book

Trial of Endurance[edit]

Varustante, to the north of Ohmonir, will test your heart's endurance.

You need to run around the island. Blue flames mark the course. You need to run close to each of them.

The course ends near the center of the island. Talk to Varustante again to complete the trial.

Trial of Strength[edit]

Alandare and the last trial are east of Varustante.

You need to defeat the other recruits to become an officer.

Complete the trial, and Alandare welcomes you as an officer of the Veiled Heritance.


  • The hourglass riddle also appeared in Arena and Oblivion.
  • If you leave the island, you can return by activating the boat located at the eastern end of Skywatch docks. (map)
