I perform a number of odd jobs and studies on behalf of the researchers in the Laboratories. Always work to be done!


Eric Porthe is a Gnome living in Adessa as well as a Basic Level dispelling trainer.


Eric can be found in The Walls usually walking around in front of Adessa Prison, not far from the player's home, Sandstone Villa(Quest:Hand-Delivered must be completed), or in the Arcadium. He can also be found in The Isles, in the Forum.



More than one user has reported that, in their game, Eric Porthe was labeled as a persuasion trainer on the map even though he still acted as a dispelling trainer. However, this is because he is usually out and about and not always in the Forum.  The Forum is also the usual location of the persuasion trainer Templar Montainel.  It is likely the labels for what's in the location are hard coded and therefore don't update if he has entered the Forum.


I do love a little conversation to break up the monotony. Have you been enjoying your time at Sandstone Villa?
There's many items that I see to on a given day. Rather boring for a visitor, I'm afraid. Unless... have you any interest in Dispelling?
This city will stand for centuries. You can tell that already, just by standing here. History is being made as we speak.

I took up learning it as a hobby. Next thing you know, I'm good enough to share the knowledge! All for the right price, of course.

when asked about Dispelling Training

The Walls are home to the assistants, the mundane researchers like myself. We strive to ensure that the institutions of the isles are optimally supported.
