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'.

Whenever I say "Shissar", he replies:

I'm sorry, what was that?

Im starting to be afraid that means I missed something along the way. I really dont want to redo solt-2 and get another etching...

any suggestions?

I had the same problem. I scrolled back and reread my chat window. When I finished the last part of the quest in 2a, it said i had too many tasks in my task queue. In order to proceed I simply removed an old (non-A City in Peril) task that I was working on (alt Q) and tried this again by going back to step 2a in the quest process. I re-hailed waymum and he gave me a new "city in peril task (2a). At that point I could restart 2b without having to start the whole City in Peril quest chain over.....I just had too many tasks running at the same time.

Turn in worked fine with me. Also remember mission do not need to be done in order (I just need COunter- Attack #4) to get flagged.
Im sorry, what was that?

I re-did the mission, got another etching and he still wont give me the task so that I can turn in my etching. Waiting on the result of a petition at this point.

I'm having the same problem with getting this task. Seems to be bugged

Myself and a friend are also bugged like this. The 4 others in our group are fine though. We all did the missions together (and only as a group) and did them all in sequence. I've tried destroying and getting a new ring, I've done the hide and seek mission again, and I've done the sketch mission again as well with all the same results. We've also completed all 8 missions but we're stuck on the little sub tasks that upgrade the ring...

Anyone have any luck fixing it yet?

Still broken, I've redone the hiding and statue missions several times, have done all the mini-tasks inbetween, and Elnot doesn't recognize my etching after I turned it in to complete the statue mission.

This still in game?

Is this task still in game? I have completed the first and the second task. But I dont get this one from Elnot to deliver the rubbing.

I can get the next task "The snakes are hiding something" from Sodut, did not complete it yet just tried to see if I get it.

Something bugged with my progress?
