Contact Introduced By Edit
New Contact(s) Edit
I think you should meet Andrew Fiore. Not only can he sell you quality electronics, but he's got information about lots of less savory business deals. He's helped more than a few heroes, especially with information about the Freakshow and the Family. Andrew has a lot of sources that give him access to Training Enhancements.
Did you ever see that weekly paper, the Asian Paragon? Well, its publisher, Olivia Chung, is a great woman. She knows all about what's going on in the immigrant community and has helped more than one hero sort out a jam involving the Vahzilok or the Outcasts. Olivia has her offices in Steel Canyon.
You won't meet many people as good-hearted as Olivia.
Have you ever met Vitaly Cherenko, the mystic healer? He's a walking hospital, only he uses magic instead of bandages. You should talk to him and see if you can help each other defeat the Tsoo and the Circle of Thorns. Vitaly can usually be found in Skyway City.
Many people don't understand the work Vitaly is doing, but that doesn't mean it's not important.
Treat Wilma with respect and you will have a solid contact.
Have you ever heard of Wilma Peterson from the Department of Waste Management? She's one of the folks in charge of disposing of hazardous waste, like Rikti technology. You should stop by and see her sometime; she's got her eye on the Freakshow and the Family right now. Wilma has access to Training Enhancements.
Fareed Abdullah is an independent technology analyst. Companies call him in to evaluate new technologies and help them make the right decisions. In order to do the best job possible, Fareed keeps himself constantly apprised of the latest developments in technology. In Paragon City, that means trying to keep up with what the bad guys are doing and what the heroes are doing in response. Fareed has analyzed hundreds of pieces of criminal equipment and advised nearly as many heroes on the technology that can serve them best. He's very well connected and popular in the science community, and he's always looking for new heroes to work with.
Initial Contact Edit
I believe that we can assist each other a great deal.
Fareed Abdullah sells the following items:
- Level 15 dual-origin technology/science enhancements
- Level 20 dual-origin technology/science enhancements
Rescue Missing Officer Edit
I just got a call from the police department; they've got a cop missing from his beat! I need you to find Officer Gary Steil. We cannot allow a decorated officer to be abducted.
Bring that officer back safe and sound.
The Lost must not be allowed to take the law into their own hands.
- Defeat kidnapper and his guards
- The name of the officer to be rescued can vary. Possible names include Gary Steil, Lance Hinton, Michael Hicks and Sam Perry.
|Gary Steil's Story|
|When you rescued Officer Steil, he told you:
'All right, I'll admit it. The Lost bribed me to look the other way about a raid they were planning on a local munitions factory. I took their money, but I tipped off a hero anyway. When they found out I'd double-crossed them, they came after me.'
- Chief Genghis (Boss) (The Lost Aberrant Eremite)
You will be taught to leave us alone!
- Officer Gary Steil/Lance Hinton/Michael Hicks/Sam Perry (Hostage)
All right, I'll tell you the whole sordid story.
So, Officer Steil took a bribe from the Lost, then double-crossed them. No wonder they went after him! Only one thing troubles me: Steil said that the Lost wanted him to overlook their raid on a munitions factory. All we've ever seen from the Lost is random violence and chaos. Could it be that there is actually a method to their madness?
Speak with Longbow Liaison for Bloody Bay Edit
I'm sure you've heard about what's going on in Bloody Bay. Longbow is recruiting heroes there to fight against the villains coming in from the Rogue Isles. Go talk with the Longbow Warzone Liaison for Bloody Bay over in Skyway City.
The Longbow Liaison will give you an appraisal of the situation in Bloody Bay. You can then make the choice whether you want to get involved or not.
- Speak to Longbow Liaison
Greetings. I'm the Longbow Liaison for the hero versus villain PvP zone of Bloody Bay. Bloody Bay is a Player Vs. Player zone. Bloody Bay is VERY dangerous, and if you go there, you almost certainly will be attacked by other players. Do not enter Bloody Bay unless you are willing to engage in Player Vs. Player combat.
If you are interested in entering Bloody Bay, you can get there by climbing up to the rooftop of this building via the fire escape and talking with the helicopter pilot. Once you get to Bloody Bay, you can speak with Warzone Agent Eckman in the Longbow-controlled safe zone. She can provide you with your missions taking place throughout the zone. These missions will allow you to change the course of the battle by providing boosts to heroes or penalties to villains. Good luck!
I hope the Longbow Liaison provided you what you need to know about Bloody Bay.
See Faultline Security Chief Edit
This mission is no longer offered as of Issue 8. Characters who already had accepted the mission will still be able to complete the mission.
Faultline is a nasty place. Take backup.
- Talk to the Security Chief
Look over this brief and then head to the streets and curb the Vahzilok activity. If I were you, I'd start in Dark Canyons and the Aftershock neighborhood.
|Overbrook was built on top of one of the many tributaries leading into the small lake outside of town. Eventually, the city dammed the lake, turning it into the reservoir. Overbrook became a beautiful place, with waterfront property and gleaming skyscrapers. But this was not to last. Right after the war, the archvillain Faultline tried to blackmail the city with his earthquake devices. A few novice heroes tried to stop him, but failed. The villain set off his machinery and leveled Overbrook. No one has heard from Faultline since, and the area adopted his name. A lot of villains have crawled out of the woodwork to claim the ruins of this zone.|
- Keep peace in Faultline
- Defeat 15 Vahzilok
You have defeated 15 Vahzilok.
Trial zones are no cake walk. I'm impressed.
Hit the streets and look for clues to the Lost's plans Edit
I'm beginning to think that the Lost may be targeting their violent attacks on specific businesses and facilities. I'm hoping you can help me learn more. I need you to hit the streets and look for clues to the Lost's plans. If I'm right, there's much more to the Lost than meets the eye.
Since the Lost are Paragon City citizens, I'd like you to use this Plasmatic Taser. That way you won't do any permanent harm.
| Plasmatic Taser Cone Energy/Smashing Damage, Knockback|
This non-lethal plasma device is more effective than a normal stun blaster. It unleashes a cone of energy that knocks foes back. The Plasmatic Taser has 45 charges.
There is a Lost ambush upon accepting this mission.
- Seek clues to Lost's plans
- Defeat 15 Lost
|List of locations|
|You found this list on one of the Lost you defeated. It lists several locations, including a bank, a water purification facility, and a military depot.|
I have never been sorrier to be proven right. It looks like the Lost really are targeting specific locations for their attacks. They also attack a lot of unimportant sites in order to make their raids seem random. But there's no doubt about it: there's a calculating mind guiding the Lost. We need to find out what its ultimate goals are.
Free the students from the Clockwork Edit
The Clockwork have overrun a recycling drive, trapping several student volunteers from Paragon City University in the building. They're probably just attracted to the scrap metal, but things could get nasty if they stay trapped in there much longer. Get over to the location I have marked for you and free those students from the Clockwork.
Your only objective is to make sure that the students get out of there unharmed. The Clockwork are probably just looking for scrap metal, but that might not protect those students if the Clockwork start to think of them as threats to their scavenging.
I never thought I'd see the day when recycling could put your life in danger. You've got to get those people out of there.
- Free students from Clockwork
- 4 students remaining
- Student Volunteer x4 (Hostage NPCs)
I am so writing my next Heroic Studies paper about this.
I was terrified until you showed up! Thank you!
I told the others not to worry. I grew up in Paragon. I knew a hero would come.
Thanks for the save, Hero! I can make it out from here.
Apparently, those PCU students felt pretty inspired by the rescue. I checked in with them and their families, and it looks like they've decided to continue helping the recycling drive, even after all that happened.
People sometimes ask how folks live in Paragon City. Events like this one today are the reason why people can live here. Events like this, and people like you.
Retrieve Manny's Trophy Edit
This might seem a little odd, but I have a personal favor to ask you. I have a buddy, Manny, whose house was recently raided by Clockwork scavengers. They stole all the metal in the place, including his track trophy from college. It's a 15-year-old hunk of scrap, but it's the only reminder he has of his life before the war, when he could walk. If you can recover Manny's trophy, I'd sure appreciate it.
Manny tried to get it back himself, but the Clockwork disassembled his wheelchair. He was able to follow them to an abandoned warehouse first. You can take out the Clockwork there if you want, but Manny really just wants his trophy back.
- Recover trophy from Clockwork
- Steampunk (Clockwork Cannon Prince)
Thank you. Manny's going to be so happy! I know it may not seem like a big victory, but this trophy you recovered is probably the only thing that kept Manny going after he lost his legs in the war.
Go to Skyway City and take some of the Lost into Custody Edit
I'm sending you out on a mission of mercy today. I want you to get over to Skyway City and take some of the Lost into custody. If our doctors can examine them in person, they may be able to figure out how to reverse the process that has altered the Lost so drastically.
In addition to helping these people, you should be able to alleviate the chaos in Skyway City. Typical Lost hangouts are Hide Park and the Land of the Lost.
- Arrest Lost in Skyway City
- Defeat 15 Lost

Thanks. With any luck, we'll be able to help reverse the process that has turned these people into the Lost.
Go to Faultline and defeat Clockwork Edit
The Clockwork have been stepping up their activity in the Faultline region, stripping the abandoned buildings of every scrap of metal they can get to build more of themselves. The real worry is if they start to get into the dam. Clearing them out is a long term task, but every hero is needed to help keep their numbers down. The city needs heroes to go into Faultline and clear out Clockwork before they can do more harm.
The Faultline zone is a dangerous place. You may want to bring some allies with you. If you can destroy about 20 Clockwork, that should help out.
- Defeat Clockwork in Faultline
- Defeat 20 Clockwork
Missing Mission Completion Text
Good job fighting those Clockwork. The last thing that stricken zone needs is those metal hungry machines eating away at everything.
Go to Skyway City and take down a few Lost Edit
I guess you've seen those Lost rectors preaching about their new order? It seems like the entire group is some sort of religious cult. In Skyway City, they've started swaying a lot of the homeless to their cause. I need you to get over to Skyway City and take down a few of the Lost. Maybe we can convince the rest of the homeless not to join up.
You can find Lost pretty easily in the Gruff or the Land of the Lost.
- Combat Lost in Skyway City
- Defeat 15 Lost
You have discouraged the homeless in Skyway City from joining the Lost
Many of the homeless are desperate for a little comfort; it's easy to see how they can be swayed by the rhetoric of the Lost. But I think you showed them that the Lost are on the wrong side of the law in Paragon City. Combined with the City Council's new outreach program, your efforts may keep a lot of the homeless from wandering down a dangerous path.
