Ramon being true to Vanguard cause, don't want to reveal info for free. But talk about luck, he has some mission for you. All you have to do is to retrieve Stolen Goods. He'll then share information (free of any additional charge), revealing that he bought that device from Eco Red in Aegean at 626,1150.
Red isn't it former self...he transformed into hippie-like blubermouth. Just enquier about ecosystems and local wildlife...option to ask about this device will present itself. Unforunatly he too is extremly busy and would really apreciate if you'd do him small favor, while he tries to remember about this device. So you set out, equiped with Scanning Device after some local wildlife (must be scaned in proper order). You can find Hammer Beast roaming around south part of Aegean, Rollerat in Clan BY, Monolith Bluebag in Warmint Woods (lvl 60 dyna west of whompa), VultureFeuder SW of Hope,BS and Grass Snake in Omni BY. Now Red tells you what he knows about Alien crash and admits it was really his friend Zibell the wanderer from Central artery valley at 3435,2650, who found this device. So now's time for trek to CAV.
*Here's little advice/spoiler. Zibell and Dr.Krank are, well, they'd be called excentric if they would be rich. You can bypass most of conversation just by trading needing item to them. You'd miss some interesting conversation tho. *
Strike conversation with Zibell and try making him talk about Dr.Krank. When he starts to relax as he splits about his counterpart, you feel it's good time to ask about Kyr'Ozch Structural Analyzer. Sure he could tell you about how he got it, but you shouldn't wind him up about Dr.Krank, this is only thing he can think about atm. Only option is to get rid of "good" doc. At this point you could go talk to Dr.Krank, but he won't share any information and deffinitly won't buldge. (Here's friendly tip from Minimalist....I sure couldn't find any info what to do next ingame).
Travel back to Aegean and visit old friend Dodga Demerzel at 610,1120. Ask him about his work for CoT and about personel shortage. He does have Omni-Tek Personnel Transfer Application and upon learning that it would help Uncle Bazzit, he'll gladely share it with you.Now get back to CAV and visit Dr.Krank at 2965,1315. He won't be trilled about receiving transfer, but que serra, besides he probably won't remember it anyway the next day.
Now Zibell is prepared to talk about device and you learn that it wasn't him who found it (I'll leave you task to dig this out ). And it's wrong man, you're talking too, other fruitcake might be more autority on Kyr'Ozch.
Just revist Dr.Krank and force device upon him...he'll share information and even ql100 Solid Clump of Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material to test it on. With cycle closed you can return to Uncle Bazzit, who'll reveal some dark secret from the past and donate you Overclocked Belt Component Platform for your troubles (yes, you can keep device you greedy mamal).
Finnaly couple of warnings....quest is buggy and at times you must use proper wording to continue it (It's not obvius choise). There is also problem with Omni taging Ramon and pulling him away, tho breaking conversation/quest. If anything like that happens or a timer runs out, you can pick up quest from Deidre....just say you want to inform Uncle Bazzit about findings and you'll pick it up from there. Also missions from Ramon to Red, Red's tagging one, from Red to Zibell don't delete/finish. Due to those factors it's possible that fix/change in quest will be introduced somewhere in future.
In this post, when I refer to "outside guilds", I mean non-allied guilds. For instance, Forsaken shares our city spot with AIL, LC, etc. We are allied with them, and they are "invited" guests to our raids, as far as I understand. Anyway, you get the point - invited vs. uninvited.
So far today, there has been a lot of uninvited guesting. Some uninvited guests like to call what they do "helping" the "defenders." Under NW tower attack logic, OK.
In most cases, the "defenders" are actually doing everything possible to get an alien attack, so they can get alien XP and alien phats. It is not, in some cases, well recieved to have 50 people show up when you finally get aliens to spawn in the city you invested 500 million credits in, attack and kill the aliens, then loot their corpses.
Further, it is more than a little bothersome when the uninvited guests happen to be of opposite alignment, not only for political and philisophical reasons, but because they filthy up your tab list (say, when you're a doctor trying to heal people outside of your team using /assist) - and even more bothersome when they show up PvP flagged, and all of your AoE attacks and procs and accidental attacks make you flagged.
We have an organization making a major investment in time, credits, and energy to build a city.
We have the rewards of these endeavours being reaped by freeloading "helpers" who charge in and killsteal and ninja loot without asking.
We have PvP griefing in the middle of all of it.
Now, I'm sure that a lot of this will die down as the "novelty" of alien attacks lessens, but how acceptable is it, really, to take part in another organization's "defense"?
I say, if you don't have a deal with them, steer freaking clear, same way you don't run up to a merc raid and stand around the corpses.
All I know is that it was damn near impossible to do anything with so many people around, the lag was horrible, and I know we didn't get all of the loot that fell. Omnis showed up and started procing AoE blinds and crap, and generally making a nuissance of themselves while insisting that they were helping us defend our city. The boss alien was almost KSed from us.
Unacceptable. Un-freaking-acceptable. Ask before you gank.
