|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group mission begins with Tuzart Relenfold (click for map image) in the port-in area of Katta Castrum.
Pre-requisites for Requesting:
You say, 'Hail, Tuzart Relenfold'
Tuzart Relenfold says 'You are just in time, _____. If you are here to aid us you must act quickly.'
You have been assigned the task 'Fate of the Combine'.
If Prexus is not behind the weakening power source, then we must find out which god has decided to curse us and appease him. Speak to Akarahotuten within the Jewel of Atiiki, for though the answer may come in riddle perhaps it will shed some light on the situation.

Enter the Great Pyramid in Jewel of Atiiki 0/1 (Katta Castrum)
The Jewel of Atiiki zone-in is at about -4220, 2550 in Katta Castrum (in the southwestern quadrant of the zone, it is the southeastern-most portal). Once in the Jewel of Atiiki, head to the southwestern pyramid and use the portal at the top to zone into the instance (/loc approximately -700, 750, 210).
Speak with Akarahotuten 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)
Akarahotuten is behind you when you zone in. Hail it, and it will vanish, saying,
You say, 'Hail, Akarahotuten'
Akarahotuten says, 'The question you have asked involves Solteris, and the power that lies within. However the question you have not asked may prove even more useful. Delve further into the temple and confront all who oppose you to solve the mystery.'
Slaughter your way through the temple and confront the true source of strife 0/1 (Jewel of Atiiki)
Kill your way down to the basement, and find Emperor Zhizuzun in the basement's northwestern room (a minimum number of kills is required before he'll spawn: around 15 kills).
No mobs in this mission summon (even the named), and everything is rootable (unconfirmed if the named is rootable).
The Emperor hits for a max ~2,100; has ~600,000 hitpoints; and is stunnable and mezzable. When he reaches 80% health, he despawns and reappears in a different location (northeastern corner of the basement). This happens again at 60% (southeastern area) and 40% health (southwestern area). At 20%, he morphs into Akarahotuten and the task ends.
Akarahotuten says 'Now you see! You have become better at understanding the path that we follow.'
The enigmatic sphinx have answered the question they were asked, and the question they were not asked... Unfortunately knowledge alone is not enough to fix the failing power source.
Faction with Combine Empire Merchants (+25)
