Drinking Sapphire Wine Walkthrough
This quest is unlocked when you dock at the Groundbreaker during Passage to Anywhere. It is only available if you recruited Parvati into your party. She will be standing by the ship's exit, and ask to talk to you. Agree to take her to meen Junlei Tennyson and bring her in your party to the ship.
You can then talk to Parvati again once you return to the Unreliable. She will mention that her back and forth with Junlei has resulted in receiving a poem, that is pretty romantic. She does not know if she's reading too much into it. Encourage her and she will read another message and she will find out about Junlei's previous flame, Isabelle. She will ask to go have a drink at The Lost Hope bar in the Groundbreaker. Agree and you'll get 14,400 xp.
- Important: Some users report that advancing quests without joining Parvati at the bar may result in her going by herself and dying. Take her as soon as you get this quest!
Go to the Lost Hope and talk to Parvati. She will ask you what to drink. Wine/Whiskey is a good option for her, after which she'll reveal she's pining for Junlei "something fierce'. Bring up your friendship and she will ask for advise. You can question why she's so unsettled, and it turns out it's the mention of Isabelle. You can reply that nobody sends bad sensual poems to people they are not interested in. She will trip over her words a bit and you can persuade (25) to get her to drink some water instead. Tell her there's an easy way to answer her questions, and she will say she does not feel comfortable spilling her guts. You can encourage her to ask people to accept her as she is. In the end, you'll be able to persuade (15) her to ask the captain out, or use Inspiration / Determination (15) to have her make her own choice.
