Variks disapproves of your new Stasis abilities. He thinks you're being reckless. He warns you to remember what the Darkness has done and what it is doing to Eramis. He refuses to believe that this is the only way to stop her.
But he acknowledges that you are free to walk your own path, even if it's a dangerous one. He urges you not to lose sight of your goal. To get to Eramis, you must begin by defeating the leader of her army: Phylaks. Thanks to his secret communication network, Variks learned that Phylaks was ordered to take control of an area currently occupied by the Vex.
Gather information about the whereabouts of Phylaks, the Warrior by challenging her soldiers in Eventide Ruins.
