|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This mini-task follows a mini-task of the same name ("#2a: A City in Peril"). It is required in order to upgrade your Combine Signet Ring, and is a required step for the Solteris flag.
It begins with the Prime Researcher.
You say, 'Hail, Prime Researcher Elnot Waymun'
Prime Researcher Elnot Waymun says 'Time has not cooled Prexus' anger at us, it seems, and our danger could not be greater. The very existence of our city hangs in the balance. If we do not find a solution we are all doomed. Meanwhile the artifact continues to [darken].'
You say, 'Darken?'
Prime Researcher Elnot Waymun says 'I think I see now the link that eluded me between the failing Pellarus Satum and the darkening skies above the waves. Prexus hinted that the Pellarus Satum is in fact a god-artifact and if that is true then it can belong to no other god than Solusek Ro. If my theory is correct then the Pellarus Satum is powered by a link directly to [Solteris] itself.'
You say, 'Solteris?'
Prime Researcher Elnot Waymun says 'Solteris is the Throne of Ro, the seat of his power. Nowhere else is Solusek Ro more powerful than atop his throne in Solteris. If the Pellarus Satum is linked to Solteris then the [cause] of our present misery must lie there. Something is gravely wrong with Solteris itself and it seems to worsen every day.'
The Avatar of Prexus scowls at those around it. 'This [doomed] city is not worthy to hear my words. Have you still not learned to leave alone those things that do not concern you?' the Avatar of Prexus says angrily.
You say, 'The cause?'
Prime Researcher Elnot Waymun says 'The only way to know for certain how to repair the Pellarus Satum is to attempt something that no other mortal has ever dared. We must [send a force] to Solteris itself to discover the root of the darkness that is spreading across Norrath and resolve it, if it is even possible for us to do so.'
You say, 'Send a force?'
Prime Researcher Elnot Waymun says 'I fear that this task is beyond the knowledge of the Combine. To travel to Solteris we will need to seek the knowledge of outsiders. It will be dangerous but I believe the [Shissar] hold the key we now seek.'
You say, 'Shissar?'
Prime Researcher Elnot says 'Seek out Tactician Sodut in the city. You must work with Tactician Sodut to uncover a way to use Shissar technology to travel to Solteris. I eagerly await your return Soandso.'
You have been assigned the task 'A City in Peril - Speak with Tactician Sodut'
Speak with Tactician Sodut
Tactician Sodut is located in Katta Castrum at about -560 +100 (south courtyard area from the temple zone in).
You say, 'Hail, Tactician Sodut'
Tactician Sodut says 'Prime Researcher Elnot sent you? I'm sure that we can discover what you need to learn, in time, but first we need to clear the way. You and I already know the perils that await in Zhisza but I think you are up to the [challenge] that awits you.'
This completes the task.
Completion of this mini-task opens up Tactician Sodut's three missions, 'The Snakes are Hiding Something!', 'Counter-Attack', and 'Confront Emperor Zaarisz'.
