This is a "mini-task" that follows the mission 'Confront Emperor Zaarisz'. It is required in order to upgrade your Combine Signet Ring, and is a required step for the Solteris flag.

You say, 'Hail, Prime Researcher Elnot Waymun'

Prime Researcher Elnot Waymun says 'Tactician Sodut has told me what you discovered with him. Please go see Vizier Zio and see if together you can find a solution to our common problem.'

You say, 'Shissar?'

You have been assigned the task 'A City in Peril - Speak with Tactician Sodut'.

Prime Researcher Elnot Waymun 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 _____.'

Speak with Tactician Sodut

Tactician Sodut is located just south of the main temple in Katta Castrum.

You say, 'Hail, Tactician Sodut'

Tactician Sodut says 'This . . . this is staggering! According to these documents the Emperor Vaakiszh was little more than a puppet figurehead! And this document hints at even darker possibilities, possibilities I will have to consider. Please return later and we will discuss how we can [proceed] given this new information.'

Your task 'A City in Peril - Speak with Tactician Sodut' has been updated.

This ends the task. Solteris Access #5: Confront Emperor Vaakiszh follows this one.

Progression task out of order

This Solteris progression task (#5a) is listed out of order here. That's why the text prompts aren't lining up.

This task:
"Solteris Access #5a: A City in Peril - Speak with Tactician Sodut"
should go between 4 and 5. So you would probably number it #4a instead of #5a.
It starts out just like #2b. But when you do the task hail, this is the result:

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 must finish what we started together. I am confident that Emperor Vaakiszh holds the key you need to save our city, if you are brave enough to [undertake] this final mission.'
Your task 'A City in Peril - Speak with Tactician Sodut' has been updated.

That's the lead-in prompt for the mission Solteris Access #5: Confront Emperor Vaakiszh

Then at the end of mission #5, when you do the final hail, instead of the [mystery] line, you get this:

Tactician Sodut says, 'This... this is staggering! According to these documents the Emperor Vaakiszh was little more than a puppet figurehead! And this document hints at even darker possibilities, possibilities I will have to consider. Please return later and we will discuss how we can [proceed] given this new information.'

Which is the lead-in prompt for Solteris Access #5b: A City in Peril - Make Contact with the Shissar Loyalists
which would be numbered #5a instead of #5b.

Thanks! Renamed this one 4a and 5b to 5a.

How is Zio associated with this task as currently noted? He is mentioned in the text, but he is not involved in the actual task itself.

this has nothing to do with solteris access this is for an optional task , all you need to do is get the update after getting the nake contact task from sodut.

where al lof this progression is bugged lies in the locating the statue task all of the other hails can be done out of order doing that one out of orderseems to royalyy ***** ppl and thiuer ring ends up at 150 hps and we at least cannot find a way to reget the hand in the etching task , unless getting the redo from maladoks somehow allows you to hav enot tried that yet

You say, 'proceed'

You have been assigned the task 'A City in Peril - Make Contact with the Shissar Loyalists'.

Tactician Sodut says 'It was a deep and disturbing shock to all of us to learn that Emperor Vaakiszh was a figurehead but it was far more shocking to learn that a second, hidden, habitat is being used by the Shissar militants. I have made contact with one of the Shissar that stands opposed to the militant faction and is willing to work with us. Go see Vizier Zio and he will help you enter this hidden habitat and seek the key to Solteris.

Vizier Zio is in round tower that's southeast of Tactician Sodut.

You say, 'Hail, Vizier Zio'

Your task 'A City in Peril - Make Contact with the Shissar Loyalists' has been updated.

Vizier Zio says 'My contacts with the Combine officials warned me you would be visiting me. What [news] do you bring?'

You say, 'news'

Vizier Zio says 'I have no idea what you mean. If you are going to waste my time with nonsense I suggest you leave before my patience is exhausted.'

You say, 'Hail, Vizier Zio'

Vizier Zio glances over at you as you approach and his eyes narrow. 'Yes, what is it? Speak quickly for I am very busy. I must bring those [traitors] to [justice].'

You say, 'traitors'

Vizier Zio says 'Unfortunately I have been complete unable to locate the traitors who conspired and killed Emperor Zhisza! It is as if they vanished from Zhisza completely!'

You say, 'justice'

Vizier Zio says 'Some day those loay to the true emperor, Zhisza, will [rise up] and spill the blood of traitors until it flows through the temples like the river. Then at last Zhisza will be avenged!'

You say, 'rise up'

Vizier Zio says 'But how can they? Those loyal to Zhisza are afraid to show themselves, afraid to trust anyone. They maybe be next to feel the point of a blad. Perhaps you can [help] me to mobilize them...'

You say, 'i will help you'

Vizier Zio says 'Yes, yes! Here, take this. What you hold in your hand is teh mark of Zhisza himself. Show that to the Shissar in Zhisza. Those loyal to Zhisza will speak my name. Those who are not, well... deal with them. That will be one less foe the day we strike! When you are [ready] I will help you slip inside the habitat.'

You receive MARK OF EMPEROR ZHISZA on cursor. It is lore item no trade. Has effect Test of Loyalty with casting time of 3.0. Required level 70. Spell effect: tests the loyalty of the target of this spell to the Emperor Zhisza.

You are assigned group task: Leave No Stone Unturned.

Description:
Vizier Zio is the leader of the faction that wants to work with the Combine, believing that the two sides must work together to rectify the problem with repairing the failing sun artifact. Let Vizier Zio know when you are "READY" and he will secretly teleport you into Zhisza away from prying eyes. You should be safe... enough.

Vizier Zio knows that if the Pellarus Satum fails completely, both sides will be in serious trouble. Most of the Shissar are on the side for war, but Zio thinks that there are some Shissar that are still loyal to Zhisza and will join his side. He has givine you a mark of the true emperor, a reminder for Zhisza - and asked you to find Shissar that will work with him, and kill those that wont.

Objective:
Attempt to convert 3 Shissar Supervisors.
Convert 10 Shissar.

Single Task
# Feb 23 2007 at 9:56 AM Rating: Decent
The Step after Confronting The Emperor is a solo task in Silyssar where you kill 3 named snakes.

I just can't find out how to access the portals to get up to them.

Must kill Defiler Morduz, Reaver Ail`zhin, Disciple Tizlrim.

actually the next task is Solteris Access #6: Where There's a Will where u observe how they use the teleportal, n i am not sure if u need to do that single task or not, think u can get it without doing any of the progression task, so i think its one of those normal missions for faction n that. i could be wrong
