|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group task is the first group mission in a series for Solteris access. It follows this 'A City in Peril' mini-task (required for progression and Combine Signet Ring upgrade). |
This group task is offered by Tactician Sodut in Katta Castum (-550, +108, -19).
You say, 'Hail, Tactician Sodut'
Tactician Sodut says 'Hmm, well, hello there _____. I'm sorry if I seem distracted but right now I fear the entire city may be in danger if I do not unravel this [mystery].'
You say, 'What mystery?'
Tactician Sodut says 'What mystery? Why the Shissar of course! I just know those snakes are up to something, I just can't [find out] what it is!'
You say, 'I will help you find out'
Tactician Sodut says 'Your help would be much appreciated in this matter! Please let me know when you are [ready] and I will arrange transportation for you to the Shissar Habitat. I believe I can slip you into the Habitat with less notice than if you take the main teleporter.'
You have been assigned the task 'The Snakes are Hiding Something!'.
Let Tactician Sodut know when you are "ready" to enter Zhisza and he will teleport you to a secret location that should be safe, the he offers no guarantee.
You have been asked to enter the Shissar Habitat and investigate the Shissar activites. Something is definitely going on in there!
Enter the Shissar caves and spy on their activities 0/1 (Zhisza)
You can send someone IVU, SoS or FD'd into the caves for the task update.
As you enter the cave you hear a hissing chant that seems to be coming from a section of the cave ahead and to your right. Every nerve in your body tingles with the haunting chant and you know in your bones that caution is definitely advised in this situation!
Observe the ritual in progress! 0/1 (Zhisza)
Said explorer stays at update point a minute or so.
As the dead appear before you to serve the Shissar priests you realize that what is happening before you is nothing less than an army being born! As the ritual comes to a close you hear one of the priests order one of the newly risen dead to report to the quarry. You realize now would be a good time to leave and perhaps investigate the quarry yourself!
Search the golems in the quarry area for evidence that the Shissar are planning something! 0/1 (Zhisza)
The quarry is the second "opening" on the west side path. There are 1 or 2 Shissar that path through there as well as a couple of basher golems. The golems drop the Schematic required.
Search the Shissar in the temple for more evidence that the Shissar are planning something! 0/1 (Zhisza)
Kill shissar in the temple until you loot their Schematic. NOTE: This is reportedly only dropped by Level 79+ patrollers found in the upper floors of the pyramid.
Follow the couriers back into the caves and find out who is in charge 0/1 (Zhisza)
Send in a IVU or SOS or FD'r into the caves directly across from zone in to get this update. Several shissar scouts will be in the caves, along with a named Shissar, Lesstos Fintal (they do not need to be killed).
a Shissar scout delivers a report.
Deliver the Golem Schematic to Tactician Sodut! 0/1 (Katta Castrum)
Deliver the Temple Schematic to Tactician Sodut! 0/1 (Katta Castrum)
Talk to Tactician Sodut about your experience in Zhisza 0/1 (Katta Castrum)
You say, 'Hail, Tactician Sodut'
Tactician Sodut says 'Grave news indeed, friend! These golems would be frightening indeed and the plans for this pyramid hint at even darker and deeper plans. You have earned a rest friend, but return when you feel prepared for a [challenge] and I think together we can blunt this threat once and for all.'
Upon completion, you receive positive faction with Combine Empire Merchants, a number of Onux.
The next task in the series is 'Counter-Attack!'
