Mad Magus Tirth
40 - 42
Magus Tirth's inability to stop the Cataclysm from flooding the Thousand Needles has cause him to go insane and became Mad Magus Tirth. He has recaptured "Plucky" Johnson, and places the blame of the Cataclysm on his former apprentice. They are both located in Tirth's Haunt, where Magus is the subject of the quest .
Magus spends his time trying to torture "Plucky".
Prior to Cataclysm, this NPC was known as Magus Tirth, a level 51 chicken vendor located at the Mirage Raceway in the contested territory of Thousand Needles. He wrote the book , but sold it due to gambling debts to a member of the Scarlet Crusade.
- Mad Magus Tirth yells: Stand still you worthless chicken!
- Mad Magus Tirth yells: Don't resist... I'm only trying to change you back into a man.
- Mad Magus Tirth yells: Dance, Johnson, dance!
- Mad Magus Tirth yells: Does anyone hear that voice? Make it stop!
- Mad Magus Tirth yells: I could have stopped the sea if not for your incessant clucking!
- Mad Magus Tirth yells: I know what I'm having for dinner tonight and it rhymes with "Sucky"!
- Mad Magus Tirth yells: What shall it be this time: fire or frost? Hmm?
- Mad Magus Tirth yells: Would you hurry it up over there? I don't have all day!
When "Plucky" Johnson transforms back into a human to sell to players Tirth will also yell out a bit of dialouge:
- Mad Magus Tirth yells: Hey! Why aren't you polymorphed? Enjoy it while it lasts, "Plucky"!
- His name sounds reminiscent of Minas Tirith.
- His quote "Dance, Johnson, Dance" may be a reference to the song "Dance, Soterios Johnson, dance" by Jonathan Coulton.
