I'm still new and haven't passed all of my Aspirant tests. But, I have an idea.
There is an artifact called Korinna's Allaying Crook. Korinna was a powerful Ascended who tamed the creatures of Bastion eons ago. Her staff has the power to prevent more creatures from succumbing to a savage, anima-starved state.
However, the artifact is protected and only one with great courage can retrieve it. I bet you could, <name>.
Go on ahead. The staff is in the reliquary to the north. I'll join you there shortly.
