Pre Req: Must have done Disappearing Dragons task before you can request this task.

Find Indagatrix Salus Acilia in the northeast corner of Lceanium.

Say tasks to her.

You say, 'Hail, Indagatrix Salus Acilia'

Indagatrix Salus Acilia says, 'Your help with [Gorenaire:Tell me more about Gorenaire.] is appreciated. I have another [task:What task?] to investigate the [sarnak:What are the sarnak doing?]. I have more [information:What information?] for you if you wish, or you can just go for it.'

You say, 'What task?'

Indagatrix Salus Acilia says, 'Please finish finding what happened with [Gorenaire:Tell me more about Gorenaire.]. Did you need me to summarize the [risk:Yes, what are the risks?]?'

You have been assigned the task 'Sneaky Sarnak'.

If you mess up on the collection part of this task and need to do it again, say again to Ambassador Paulus.



  1. Go to the combine outpost near the giant fort 0/1 Scorched Woods

    You'll get this update in the combine outpost northeast of the giant fort in Scorched Woods.


  2. Greet Ambassador Paulus 0/1 Scorched Woods

    Hail him.

    You say, 'Hail, Ambassador Paulus'

    Your task 'Sneaky Sarnak' has been updated.

    Ambassador Paulus says, 'Greetings. Wait what did you do. Did you bring them to kill me?'


  3. Defend the ambassador and yourself 0/3 Scorched Woods

    Kill the Sarnak Assassins that attack and keep the Ambassador alive.


  4. Speak with the ambassador about the [ambush] 0/1 Scorched Woods

    Say ambush to him and go through his dialog.

    You say, 'Hail, Ambassador Paulus'

    You say, 'Ambush'

    Ambassador Paulus says, 'I apologize for accusing you. Instead of bringing the sarnak to me, you saved me. How can I [assist:I need your assistance in investigating the sarnak.] you?'

    You say, 'I need your assistance in investigating the sarnak.'

    Ambassador Paulus says 'Ah. The sarnak.' He glances at the sarnak corpses. 'Our scouts have noticed an [increase:So Acilia is correct. There is reason to worry. An increase in their numbers is bad.] in their numbers here and in the mountains nearby.'

    You say, 'So Acilia is correct. There is reason to worry. An increase in their numbers is bad.'

    Ambassador Paulus says, 'It's true. Their numbers are increasing and they seem to be [organized:And they are becoming more organized? That's not good.].'

    You say, 'And they are becoming more organized? That's not good.'

    Ambassador Paulus says, 'I'm not sure if they have a leader here or not. But there is one sarnak I have seen multiple times, but I don't know his name. I have an [idea:What is your idea?].'

    You say, 'What is your idea?'

    Ambassador Paulus says, 'Well. You see, I have a hobby that I think will be of use. [Pheromones:How will pheromones help?]'

    You say, 'How will pheromones help?'

    Ambassador Paulus says, 'Though they are intelligent, I believe that the sarnak are primitive. And because of this, pheromones can have a profound affect on them. With that in mind, I have a [formula:What is the formula?] that I think will work. Use it on yourself and it will make the sarnak friendly. And also, let me know if you need to create the pheromones [again:I need to create that stinky goop again.]'

    You say, 'What is the formula?'

    A mystical path appears before you.

    Your task 'Sneaky Sarnak' has been updated.

    Ambassador Paulus says, 'Yes. You will need honey from wasps, wood that never crumbles, the heart of fire elementals, and some musk from a sarnak. Stir it all in a mixing bowl. There are some bodies in the larger ruined building nearby. Perhaps they can give you a clue.'

    You say, 'I need to create that stinky goop again.'

    Ambassador Paulus says, 'Okay. Go ahead and collect components and make a new batch.'


  5. Search the bodies in the ruined building nearby 0/1 Scorched Woods

    There is a building with Sarnak corpses not far from here. Stand on the corpses until you see the task update.


  6. Collect 4 Wasp Honey(s) 0/4 Scorched Woods

    Travel to the southwest part of the zone. Kill the dauber's there and loot the Wasp Honey.


  7. Collect 3 Ever Burning Wood(s)

    Ever Burning Woods are ground spawns in the mid north part of the zone. Loot them.


  8. Collect 2 Fire Elemental Essence(s) 0/2 Scorched Woods

  10. Create 1 Stupefying Sarnak Pheromones using tradeskills 0/1 ALL

    Stupefying Sarnak Pheromones recipe.


  11. Go to the sarnak fort to the northeast 0/1 Scorched Woods

    The front gate where the guards are standing as you approach the fort is where this step updates.


  12. Speak with the sarnak 0/1 Scorched Woods

    Either charm a sarnak and hail it or break out that Stupefying Sarnak Pheromones and right click it. Get ready to get attacked. Once you're ready, starting hailing the sarnak's until one of them gives you dialog.

    You say, 'You can help me by telling me what the sarnak are doing here.'

    Your task 'Sneaky Sarnak' has been updated.

    A sarnak knight says, 'Even if you're interesting, I can't talk about our plans or motivations. Maybe [Dry'dn:Who is Dry'dn?] has something to say.'

    You say, 'Who is Dry'dn?'

    A sarnak knight says, 'I think you can find him to the south east.'


  13. Ask Haggle Baron Dry`dn what the Sarnak's [intentions] are 0/1 Scorched Woods

    Haggle Baron Dry'dn is located to the southwest of the fort on the zone wall. Say intentions to him.

    You say, 'Hail, Haggle Baron Dry`dn'

    Haggle Baron Dry`dn says, 'Why shouldn't I kill you?'

    You say, 'intentions'

    Haggle Baron Dry`dn says, 'What do you mean? Aren't you with the Combine? Is this a [test:No, this is not a test.]?'

    You say, 'No, this is not a test.'

    Haggle Baron Dry`dn says, 'Look. I did what [she:What she? Who do you mean 'she?'] asked. I have nothing more to say. If she wants more she can [pay:Why is this woman paying you?].'

    You say, 'What she? Who do you mean 'she?''

    Your task 'Sneaky Sarnak' has been updated.

    Haggle Baron Dry`dn gives you a suspicious look. If you don't know who she is, then you aren't whom I think you are. Go away.

    You say, 'Why is this woman paying you?'

    Haggle Baron Dry`dn says, 'You know the drill. Money moves Norrath.'


  14. Find the "she" that Haggle Baron Dry`dn spoke of 0/1 Lceanium

    Go to Lceanium, find Lcea Katta in the main temple in the center of town. The task will update there and you will receive Lcea's Note.

    Go back to Scorched Woods and give Lcea's Note to Haggle Baron Dry`dn.


  16. Go to the meeting 0/1 Lceanium

  17. Kill the sarnak attacking Lcea 0/4 Lceanium

    Kill all 4 of the Sarnak that attack.


  18. Ask Lcea Katta [why] she killed Dry`dn 0/1 Lceanium

    You say, 'Hail, Lcea Katta'

    You say, 'Why'

    Lcea Katta says, 'Because he is [lying:But, Wait. You say he is lying? I saw you kill him.]. Even to his last breath.'

    You say, 'But, Wait. You say he is lying? I saw you kill him.'

    Your task 'Sneaky Sarnak' has been updated.

    Lcea Katta says, 'Do not question me. You have no right, even if you helped save my father. I am grateful for that, but that does not entitle you to internal information vital for the Combine Empire. Go tell Salus Acilia that you are done.'


  19. Report to Indagatrix Salus Acilia that [Lcea Katta] says you are done 0/1 Lceanium

    Talk to Indagatrix Salus Acilia in Lceanium near the Scorched Woods tunnel. Say to her Lcea Katta.

    You say, 'Hail, Indagatrix Salus Acilia'

    Indagatrix Salus Acilia says, 'Your help with [Gorenaire:Tell me more about Gorenaire.] is appreciated. I have another [task:What task?] to investigate the [sarnak:What are the sarnak doing?]. I have more [information:What information?] for you if you wish, or you can just go for it.'

    You say, 'Lcea Katta'

    Your task 'Sneaky Sarnak' has been updated.

    This is all disturbing. Praetor Denik has urgent need of your assistance. Find them.

    You receive 5 gold .
    You receive 425 platinum .

    Indagatrix Salus Acilia suddenly looks nervous and she stands up straight. 'Um. Okay.' Having trouble meeting your gaze, she stares at your forehead instead. 'If she says you are done, you are done. Thank you for your service to the Combine. I think Praetor Denik has some urgent business for you.'

The Visage of Chardok Royalty

I was able to use the reward for the last anniversary and completed the stage to hail the Sarnak at the fort. I had to evac and lost the pheromone, had the chanter mez and completed the task. Not sure if just happened at that time by coincidence or not.

lost potion of diguise - easy update for the sarnak hail
# Jul 13 2017 at 8:23 AM Rating: Good
2 posts
I messed up and wasted my potion of disguise.
It isn't even needed after you get the update for making it
if you pull a blue and charm it
hail it eventually you will get a positive result.
then /say help and follow the prompts until it updates.
doing it this way avoided the 4 attackers also.

I did 3 people on the same sarnak without using the disguise potion on any of the 3 toons
sarnak hails
# Mar 20 2017 at 11:11 PM Rating: Decent
if the mob is engaged with someone OTHER than you, or is mez'd, you can chain hail it, until it replies with:

What can I [help] you with?
eventually, saying help with yield a line of chat...
Even if you're interesting, I can't talk about our plans or motivations. Maybe [Dry'dn] has something to say.

training Haggle Baron Dry'dn w/ the sarnak of your choice engages it, n makes it susceptible to the chain hail sequence. just running around hailing random mobs is going to be very very very painful. Even with the Visiage of Chardok Royalty. You get, one, maybe two hails, n then you are attacked.

If you mess up or have to do the collect part again. Just '/say Again' to the Ambassador.

For once maybe someone would call me "sir", without adding, "you're making a scene"

You lose the effects of the potion if you gate. Can't seem to get the items needed to make another potion either. Any ideas?

Might have to drop the task and redo it so you can make a new potion.

Take an enchanter along. I went out to help a druid that has gotten overrun and had to Exodus. I mez'd one of the Sarnaks near the halfling and he hailed it and got the reply.

Step 16 - Don't have to be at the center. I was just on the outskirts on the south side of ring and they spawned coming from the east.

Step 20 - There are 2 Lcea Katta in zone. The one needed for this step is on the west side of the druid rings.
