    This group task begins with Gurtrude the Spymaster who can be found at the Ak'Anon Strike Force camp near the zone-in of Fortress Mechanotus. It is available after completing "S.H.I.P. #4: Tactical Teleportation".

    You say, 'Hail, Gurtrude the Spymaster'

    Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Shhh. . . A good spy knows to keep her voice low and quiet. Now, have you come here to assist me with my [work], or to [try to join] my gaggle of spies?'

    You say, 'Work.'

    Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Well, it is my task to lead a fine group of spies. I can't tell you anything about them, but it is our duty to infiltrate the enemy's structures, disrupt their war effort and steal what secrets we can. Now, I readily admit that none of us on this detail were much for spying before the crash, but when it became obvious that we would not win this battle by strength of arms, I convinced many of the crew to work together as spies. They are even now infiltrating Meldrath's infrastructure. Though, we are spread a bit thin, and there is no support from the ground for our efforts. Perhaps you might be willing to do a few simple [tasks] for me?'

    You say, 'What tasks?'

    Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Good! Obviously I'm risking the lives of my people by trusting you, but I have no choice. I won't be sending you to speak with our most important spies, however, since I really don't know you very well. Will you be handling this [alone] or with trusted [friends]?'

    You say, 'With friends.'

    Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'I hope these are good friends, because you'll be asking them to do some dangerous work. Good luck!'

    You have been assigned the task 'Administrative Assassination'.

    Tell Gurtrude you are ready to 'sneak in' to the workshop. 0/1 (Fortress Mechanotus)

    Kill 1 Chief Administrator Grigano 0/1 (S.H.I.P. Workshop)

    Approximate Location: +450, +65, +410.

    Speak with Gurtrude 0/1 (Fortress Mechanotus)

    You say, 'Hail, Gurtrude the Spymaster'

    Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Oh my! Well done indeed! I'm sure this will give us an advantage in the our battles against Meldrath. Thank you so much!'

    Your task 'Administrative Assassination' has been updated.

    You have managed to deal a stinging blow to Meldrath's war machine, enjoy this small victory for now.

    Grigano summons adds (various administrative assistants). Guessing adds are summoned at some health percentage.

    By the time we got Grigano down to about 28% health we had 4 summoned adds and 3 members of party down.

    Chanter AE mez Grigano and the 4 adds while cleric got peeps back up and buffed.

    We picked off adds one at a time, leaving Grigano till last.

    He didn't summon any more adds. We only got a total of 4 adds. Adds warped to Grigano, they didn't come running from any of the rooms. This was helpful, because adds were all bunched up and easy to AE mez.

    Might want to beat Grigano down till add summoned, mez Grigano, kill add, then continue on Grigano till next add. If adds are summoned by %, then if you keep beating on Grigano, you'll have more adds to worry about.

    The unexpected adds not mentioned in previous posts took us offguard.

    We setup in the hallway on the roof. Named was outside the hall on the roof.

    1. Tell Gertrude you are ready to sneak in.
    2. Kill Chief Administrator Grigano.
    3. Speak to Gertrude.

    Pretty easy compared to the rest of the missions. It may be a 'reward' for finishing the other tasks for the barrier. Use illusion. Run up to the 3rd floor (the one with the gnome in the center surrounded by desks). Camp in the hallway that leads outside. First pull and kill the Chief Adminstrative Assistant (yes, they spelled it wrong). Then kill Grigano who is outside. He hit me for 6890 max (monk). We kept waiting for something special to happen. Then he was dead.
