You want my help? See a broker first. I don't have time to deal with amateurs.

Information Edit

Demon Hunter

Hardcase is a professional demon hunter. Demon hunters as a general rule don't live very long, so the fact that he is a veteran is a testament to his skills or luck. Hardcase has come to St. Martial to deal with the demons who plaque the area, and is looking for freelancers who aren't afraid to tuss with the monsters.

Initial Contact Edit

Demons. St. Martial is full of 'em. That's why I'm here. They call me Hardcase, and I'm a demon hunter. I don't care where you're from or what your story is. All I want to know if you're tough enough to deal. If you are, then maybe we can do some business. If you're not, then I suggest you slink back to whatever hole you crawled out of.

No More Missions Edit

The demons are dealt with. For now.

StoreEdit

Hardcase sells the following to villains:

  • Inspirations
  • All level 35 dual-origin natural/magic enhancements
  • All level 35 single-origin magic enhancements
  • All level 40 single-origin magic enhancements

Hardcase does not buy enhancements or inspirations.

Story Arcs Edit

Silver-Tongued Devil Edit

Souvenir: Silver Tongue

This is a silver forked demon tongue. It's all that's left from a Wailer King demon known as Silvertongue after you defeated him in a tale you like to call:

Silver-Tongued Devil

It all stated when Hardcase spoke with you about getting rid of a demon problem for a lady in return for a big payoff. She wanted to get rid of a Wailer King known as Silvertongue who she inadvertently made a deal with. Hardcase had you start interrogating the Wailers to see if you could find Silvertongue's true name - it turned out to be Cacophonix!

The next step was getting a banishing ritual. No one knows more about demons than the Circle of Thorns, so you raided one of their temples to get the materials for the ritual.

Hardcase passed word the lady who made the deal with Silvertongue was trapped in a warehouse with the demons closing in on her. Since she was the payoff, it was important to get to her in time. Confronting Silvertongue there, you found that the whole mess was set up by the demon! The banishing ritual was useless against him since he passed on a flase true name. You managed to defeat Silvertongue anyway, but he promised to return again.


Interrogate Wailers Edit

Briefing

Normally, I don't do mercy missions. I mean - if you're stupid enough to get yourself in trouble with a demon, it's your own damn problem, right? Well, there's a lady who came to me asking to help her with a little demon problem she had. Apparently, she didn't know what she was getting herself into and made a pact with a Wailer King who goes by the name of Silvertongue. In any case, she promised to compensate for helping her with her troubles. Payout and demon killing? Works for me!

Some demons have something called a true name. Knowing a demon's true name gives you power over them and can be used to banish them or bind them to your will when used with the proper ritual. The Wailer King responsible for messin' with the lady will never reveal his true name, but his minions might reveal it - given the proper persuasion. Interrogate the Wailers for Silvertongue's true name.

I know there's a bunch of them in some caves nearby here. Check them out.

Mission acceptance

Once we have Silvertongue's true name, we can get to the business of banishing him.

Unnecessary solicitation

What you waitin' for? Find out Silvertongue's true name!

Mission Objective(s)

The caves resonate with distant shrill screams.

  • Interrogate Wailers

You have learnt Silvertongue's true name!

Combat start: "Hail to the king, baby!"

Debriefing

So Silvertongue's true name is Cacophonix, eh? Somehow, that doesn't surprise me.


Steal banishing ritual and components Edit

Briefing

We're well on our way to getting our payoff for banishing the Wailer King known as Silvertongue. Learning his true name means all we need to get rid of the demon is to get an appropiate banishing ritual. Who knows more about binding and banishing demons than anyone? The Circle of Thorns. Raid a Circle temple on Primeva and steal the Banishing Ritual of Gymon're and the necessary components for it.

Mission acceptance

The Circle does not readily share its knowledge, so be prepared to bust some heads.

Unnecessary solicitation

Have you stolen the banishing ritual and components from the Circle yet? No? Then why are you wastin' your time talking with me?

Mission Objective(s)

The air is charged with arcane energies.

  • Steal banishing ritual and components
    • Find ritual
    • Find components

You got the ritual and components!

Defeat Silvertongue Edit

Briefing

We got Silvertongue's number now! All we have to do is find and banish the demon!

I just got a call from the lady who made the deal with Silvertongue. She thinks the demons have tracked her down and Silvertongue is on his way! Take down Silvertongue once and for all!

Mission acceptance

Make sure you get the lady out of there too - she's our big payoff!

Unnecessary solicitation

You waitin' for Silvertongue to eat our payoff? Get movin'!

Mission Objective(s)

The warehouse smells of musk and brimstone. Not a pleasant combination.

Combat start:
"Hahaha! Character fell for our little trap! Guess what? I'm the 'lady' who was speaking with Hardcase! Your banishing ritual will do nothing, as you don't know my REAL true name! I set you up! I SET YOU UP!"
"Hahaha!" (emote laugh)
"Get 'em, boys!" (emote point)
Defeated: "I'll be back, Character! I'll be back!"

Debriefing

You mean the lady was Silvertongue? Damn! I've been played for a fool. I should have known better than to fall for some lame damsel-in-distress routine. Trust no one, Character, especially when you're dealing with demons!

Without the proper banishing ritual, you can bet Silvertongue will be back.


Sold for a Song Edit

Souvenir: Johnny Sonata Tickets

These are a couple of Johnny Sonata tickets. You got these as a reminder of a tale you like to call:

Sold for a Song

It all started when Hardcase the demon hunter got you to beat down some Wailers on St. Martial and collect their essence in a crystal pendant. You got the job done, and Hardcase related the Wailers had a 'resonance' having to do with sound and music, possibly something on St. Martial itself.

Hardcase wanted to know more, and sent you to interrogate some Circle of Thorns mystics, known demon summoners. You found that one of the Circle mystics known as Karvost had made some deals with the Wailers. Heading to Karvost's lair, you interrogated the mystic to discover that he had learned to control them through a book known as the Tolshak Mysteries, hidden in a Circle temple beneath Sharkhead Isle.

Raiding the Circle of Thorns temple on Sharkhead Isle, you ransacked their libraries to find the Tolshak Mysteries. You took the book back to Hardcase who began to unlock its secrets.

Hardcase was recently visited by Daniel Hawthorn, a man who had made a pact with the Wailers. He reneged on the deal however, and was being hunted by the demons. Hardcase wanted to know the details of the pact, so sent you to get to the man before the demons did. After you rescued Daniel Hawthorn, he told you the deal: they'd provide him luck in the casino, and he'd destroy one of the seals on the Golden Giza. Hardcase theorized that the demons were bownd to the seals in some way.

Hardcase decided to ask an expert in magical matters, and requested a divination on the seals from the Archmage Tarixus on Sharkhead Isle. Tarixus required a boon first, asking you to eliminate some of his Circle enemies on Primeva. Once you succeeded, he sent the results of the divination to Hardcase. Hardcase revealed the seals were not there to bind the Wailers to the Golden Giza, but to keep them out of Babylon!

Hardcase still had the question of who was behind the building of the seals. He sent you to the local property office to find out more info on Babylon and the Golden Giza. there you found that major architectural reconstruction was done by none other than the star singer of the Golden Giza, Johnny Sonata! Hardcase speculated Johnny had sold his soul to the demons for a song, but then found the means to prevent them from getting at him. Hardcase was frustrated: killing Johnny to solve the Wailer problem would be difficult, and was not the guaranteed solution. Hardcase was consigned to hunt demons until a clear path was apparent.


Collect demonic essence Edit

Briefing

I'm here to deal with the demons around St. Martial, but I can't solve the problem until I have a better understanding of what makes these demons tick. Take this pendant - it was created to capture the essence of Wailer Demons you defeat. There's an old warehouse nearby which has been overrun with Wailers. Steal the essence of all the Wailers there and return the crystal pendant to me. Once the crystal pendant is full, I'll be able to get a better idea of what we're dealing with.

Mission acceptance

A warning: the demons can sense the nature of the pendant, so they may come after you!

Unnecessary solicitation

The crystal pendant isn't full yet. Take down some more Wailers!

Mission Objective(s)

You see small shapes scuttling in the shadows.

  • Collect demonic essence

You filled the crystal pendant!

Notes

  • Even though it isn't a stated mission objective, this mission cannot be completed until all enemies have been defeated.

Combat start: "Don't be cruel..."

Debriefing

Huh, interesting. From the look of the crystal, these Wailers have a certain demonic resonance linked with sound and music. It's probably something on St. Martial itself that is drawing them here. But what?


Interrogate Circle of Thorns Edit

Briefing

I may be an expert demon hunter, but there are others who know more about demons. That'd be the Circle of Thorns - their whole shtick is about souls and demons. I want to know what they know about the demons running about St. Martial. Interrogate the Circle of Thorns about the Wailers.

There are some powerful Circle mystics here on St. Martial and on the Nerva Archipelago.

You're a tough one, Character. Maybe you'll put me out of a job... I wish. Any way you slice it, you'll need better Enhancements to survive.


Rescue Daniel Hawthorn Edit

Briefing

You've been getting some good info on these Wailers. You got more information on the nature of the demons through the resonance crystal, and tracking down and stealing the Tolshak Mysteries from the Circle of Thorns was very valuable. But we need to know more.

I got some idiot who came to me screaming about a deal with the devil, and how he wants out. He was all paranoid, and took off on me when he thought he saw something on a rooftop looking down at him. If we rescue his sorry self, we might be able to get some details on the contract he made with the demons. Rescue Daniel Hawthorn from the Wailers.

Mission acceptance

Last time I saw him he was heading off towards the slums of St. Martial. You can take this truck there.

Daniel Hawthorn: "I'm outta here!"

Debriefing

So they want to break one of the seals on the Golden Giza, eh? Demons are sometimes bound by seals - perhaps someone wants to keep them bound to the Giza? I need more info.


Get info from Tarixus Edit

Briefing

We got some good info on these Wailers: they have a resonance having to do with sound and music, and they're trying to break the seals on the Golden Giza. We got what the Circle of Thorns know about them from the Tolshak Mysteries, though it's going to take a while to unlock those secrets.

There's another source we ain't tapped yet. You heard of the Archmage Tarixus? He's a ghostly dude with some major mojo back on Sharkhead. He might be able to provide us with some insight - for a price. There's always a price. Get whatever information Tarixus can provide.

Mission acceptance

Do whatever that old ghost might tell ya. It might be dangerous, but it shouldn't be anything you can't handle, right?

Unnecessary solicitation

You talked to Tarixus yet? He's a powerful dude, so don't keep him waiting!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Visit Archmage Tarixus

V archetypeicon stalker Ambush! After zoning to Sharkhead Isle to visit Tarixus, there will be an ambush by Wailers.
Wailer: "Character must diiiieeee!"
Briefing

I am aware of Hardcase's wishes. Yes, I can provide you with assistance by performing a divination on the seals of the Golden Giza. However, I wish you to do something for me first. The Circle of Thorns have been trying to gain control over my spirit form. Even now they perform rituals on Primeva in the hopes of destroying my magical wards. I wish to punish them for their insolence! Go to Primeva and cull the Circle of Thorns! Once you have done this, I will perform the divination and tell Hardcase the results.

V archetypeicon stalker Ambush! After talking to Tarixus, there will be an ambush by Wailers.
Wailer: "Character must diiiieeee!"


Unnecessary solicitation

What are you waiting for? Do what Tarixus has commanded of you!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat Circle on Primeva
    • Defeat 30 Circle of Thorns

You have punished the Circle of Thorns!
Note: Primeva, in case you don't remember, is the north part of Nerva Archipelago. Circle of Thorns levels range from 31-37, so be careful.

Debriefing

I have received the results of the divination from Tarixus! The seals aren't meant to bind the Wailers to the Golden Giza - they're there to keep the demons out of Babylon! Something the demons want is inside the Golden Giza, and it's only the seals that are keeping them out. If the seals break, it means that St. Martial is going to be overrun with demons, and we're ALL dead.


Steal Babylon property records Edit

Briefing

So someone wants to keep the Wailer demons out of Babylon, eh? I'd like to find out who. I found out where the property records for Babylon are being kept - this may provide us a link to whoever finnanced the building of the Golden Giza. Raid the office where the property records are being kept.

Mission acceptance

You might have to deal with some private security there. A lot of money flows around St. Martial, so you can be sure these guys are top-notch.

Unnecessary solicitation

You steal those records yet? Get on that!

Mission Objective(s)

The office smells of polish and carpet cleaner.

  • Steal Babylon property records

You found the Babylon property files!

Private Security Captain:

Combat start: "Over there! Attack!!"

Debriefing

So, Johnny Sonata is the guy who financed the buildings of the wards? Huh. It sounds like the demons are after him, likely because of some deal he made which came due.

Normally I'd just deal with this problem by killing Johnny. Johnny is a demon-caller, and I got no respect for them. Johnny is dead, his soul is released, and the demons have nothing to go after. But you can bet Johnny has got some sort of supernatural backup. Also, if the Wailers have been after Johnny this long, they may just tear St. Martial apart in frenzy after losing Johnny's soul!

I guess until we find some way to kill this pact between Johnny and the Wailers, we'll stick to hunting demons.


Pied Piper Edit

Souvenir: Johnny Sonata Techno-Remix

This techno-remix recording of the star of the Golden Giza on St. Martial, the crooner known as Johnny Sonata. You have it as a reminder from a tale you like to call:

Pied Piper

It all started when Hardcase contacted you about a horde of Wailers attacking a warehouse in The Hard Way. Investigating, you found a gang of Freakshow with sound modifications being swarmed by Wailers. After you dealt with the situation, you found a bunch of music discs on the Freakshow, including a techno-remix of Johnny Sonata's greatest hits. Hardcase speculated the Wailers were attracted to the music!

Hardcase saw this as an opportunity to draw the Wailers away from St. Martial. He sent you to go after Trey Belcleff, one of the Freakshow's sonic techies. Getting to Trey, you got him to build a sonic transmitter capable of attracting the Wailers from a distance.

Hardcase picked a target for the sonic device: Paragon City. You snuck over to the mainland and planted the sonic transmitter in the sewers beneath Paragon, avoiding patrols of Longbow who caught word of your presence. You managed to plant the device, giving a momentary reprise from the Wailers for St. Martial.


Find cause of Wailer attack Edit

Briefing

Hey Character. I got word that all hell is breaking loose in a warehouse down in Hard Way. Nothing new considering what the Hard Way is normally like, but in this case there's a LOT of Wailers there. I don't know if it's some sort of ward they're after there, or Johnny Sonata tried to make a break for it or what, but it's worth checking out. Head over to the warehouse and find out what's causing these Wailers to attack in such huge numbers.

Mission acceptance

You might want some backup - there's a LOT of Wailers in there!

Unnecessary solicitation

You check out the warehouse yet? Get on it!

Mission Objective(s)

In the distance you hear discordant music accompanied by the screams of Wailer demons.

Steal sonic device Edit

Briefing

Those sonic Freakshow who were playing the Johnny Sonata techno-remix which attracted the Wailers gave me an idea. If we could get hold of some of the sonic tech, we can plant a device on another island and draw the Wailers away from St. Martial! I know the name of a techie who's working for the Freakshow leaders on St. Martial developing their sonic tech. Get Trey Belcleff from the Freakshow to build you a sonic device.

Mission acceptance

Once we capture Belcleff, we can get him to construct the sonic device to attract the Wailers!

Draw Wailers to Paragon City Edit

Briefing

So we found the Wailers were attracted by the techno-remix of Johnny Sonata's music, and managed to get a Freakshow sonic techie to make a heavy duty sonic transmitter. Now all we need to do is plant it somewhere off of St. Martial...

I know - let's put it in Paragon City. Let those hero jerks deal with the Wailers when they come after it. They'll probably find the device after a while, but it'll give St. Martial a break from the Wailers for a while at least. Plant the sonic transmitter in the Paragon City sewers and make sure there are no nearby witnesses!

Mission Acceptance

I have a boat waiting in Nerva to take you to Paragon City. Longbow usually watches for villains going in and out of the Rogue Isles, so keep an eye out for them.

You received the Ultra Mega Boombox

Icon clue generic

Mission Objective(s)

    • Plant sonic device
    • Defeat reinforcements

That should draw some of the Wailers off St. Martial - at least for a while. Let the 'heroes' of Paragon City deal with that mess!


Chaos Affair Edit

Souvenir: Carnival Party Hat

It all started when Hardcase asked you to help deal with Wailers stealing souls from people in St. Martial who didn't deserve it. Hardcase isn't the bleeding heart type, but he does believe in protecting his own. You agreed to help out and managed to save a few of the working stiffs of St. Martial from having their souls ripped away.

It seemed as though the soul raid by the Wailers on the streets of St. Martial was just the beginning. Hardcase got the call about demons running amok in the offices in the Golden Giza. This worried Hardcase, as the Giza never had demon problems before. He sent you there and you dealt with a Wailer King known as Silvertongue.

Hardcase wanted to know more about the Wailers plans. He knew the Circle of Thorns were trying to broker many pacts with the Wailers, and so sent you to raid a Circle temple and interrogate its leader to find out more. The Circle leader told you the demons were trying desperately to break the wards around St. Martial which were preventing them to get into Babylon and the Golden Giza, to get at someone inside there. Hardcase speculated the Wailers' goal was to get to Johnny Sonata.

Hardcase got a tip there was a Carnival of Shadows leader named Paradox seen in the casino offices before the Wailer attack occurred there. Tracking her to an abandoned warehouse, you found she was making deals with the Wailer King Silvertongue! She spoke of an upcoming 'Chaos Affair' the Carnival was hosting.

Hardcase didn't like the sound of what was to come, so sent you to get more information from the Circle on the street. You found the 'Chaos Affair' was being led by a Carnival leader know as Lady Deveraux, as well as the time and location of the event. They're planning on destroying one of the warding statues keeping the Wailers out!

You went to try and prevent the warding statue from being broken and the Wailers from overrunning St. Martial.

Badge bughunter 01 Bug! The Carnival Party Hat souvenir appears bugged at the moment. It doesn't have the usual intro for souvenirs and the ending is incomplete.


Rescue victims from Wailers Edit

Briefing

There's something going down, but if you're one of those, 'I want to eat human brains' types, then I got nothing for you. Look, we may be villains, but we still live here. I do what I do to make my life easier, but I don't go out of my way to hurt people who don't deserve it. I make my own destiny and I don't care about the laws unless someone's strong enough to stop me. But I ain't a monster.

Y'know those Wailer demons? Well, they been goin' around St. Martial collectin' souls from people who don't deserve it. When demons take out people they make pacts with that's one thing, but when they start pickin on folks just mindin' their own business, that's when I gotta step in and kick some demon butt! If you're still here, then I guess you see things my way. Head over to the slums in St. Martial and protect the people from the Wailers.

Mission acceptance

There may not be too many innocents in the Rogue Isles, but there's such a thing as protecting your own. That's where I'm coming from.

Unnecessary solicitation

What you waitin' for? You want the Wailers to gain more souls?

Debriefing

Apparently, there was some sort of astrological conjunction which allowed the Wailers to seize souls without making a pact with them first. You did a good job in protecting our own, Character. You got my respect.


Defeat all Wailers in office Edit

Briefing

We got us a problem. I got a call about some Wailer demons breaking into an office in the Golden Giza. There ain't been problems in the Giza with demons before, so we best take care of this pronto before it develops into something worse. Clear the Wailers out of the casino office.

Mission acceptance

Make sure you clear all of 'em out. Even one escaping could mean a whole lotta problems.

Unnecessary solicitation

What you waitin' for? Clear out those demons!

Mission Objective(s)

You hear a crash and the scream of office workers. The demons are here.

  • Defeat all Wailers in office
    • Stop Silvertongue from escaping!

Debriefing Mission Failure and Mission Successful

Silvertongue the Wailer King was there? This demon problem is getting worse by the minute. We gotta deal with this.


Disrupt Circle plans Edit

Briefing

I don't like these increased demon attacks around St. Martial. First, regular joes on the street, then an attack on the Golden Giza itself. We gotta get to the root of these attacks.

The Circle of Thorns have been trying to control the Wailers for a while, so they might have insight into what the Wailers are up to. Hit a Circle of Thorns hideout and interrogate their leader, Karthist, on what they know about the Wailers' plans. While you're there, free a couple of the sacrifice victims they recently nabbed from St. Martial. Again, these are just folks that done nothin' but get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Mission acceptance

Karthist is a bit of a coward and will likely try to run when things get rough for him. Don't let him escape!

Unnecessary solicitation

Have you found what the Circle know about the Wailer attacks? Get goin'!

Mission Objective(s)

The air is charged with arcane energies.

  • Disrupt Circle plans
    • 2 victims to free
    • Interrogate Circle leader

Failure - no message given
Success - You interrogated the leader and freed the sacrifice victims!

Huh. Well, it's nothin' really new. We already knew the demons were wanting to get into the Giza, and by all accounts it's likely 'cuz they want to get to the Giza's star, Johnny Sonata. Looks like Johnny's luck is starting to run out.


Interrogate Paradox Edit

Briefing

Listen up. We know the Wailers are trying to break into the Golden Giza, and we've got a pretty good idea why. I just got more info on that raid the demons made on the offices by the casino. Apparently, there was one of the Carnival of Shadows nearby there acting suspiciously, a woman named Paradox. She was recently seen heading into the Hard Way to an abandoned warehouse.

Mission acceptance

Paradox has a rep for dealing with all sorts of supernatural entities. Don't be surprised to run into a few there.

Paradox from the Carnival of Shadows relates that one of the local Carnival leaders named Lady Devereaux made a deal with the Wailer demon known as Silvertongue. She would sneak into the offices at the Golden Giza to break a few wards keeping out the Wailers. In return, they would help the Shadow set up a 'Chaos Affair' on the streets of St. Martial.

NPC Text

Paradox and Silvertongue:

Before combat:
Paradox: "I did as you asked. Now it's time for me and my friends to have some fun."
Silvertongue: "Sure thing, baby! We're gonna rock this town!"
Combat start:
Silvertongue: "Ah, nuts..."

Debriefing

The Wailers have struck a deal with the Carnival of Shadows? That's got bad news written all over it. This 'Carnival of Chaos' sounds like it's gonna be a heap of trouble for St. Martial.


Interrogate Carnival Edit

Briefing

So the Wailers have been going nuts trying to steal souls around the Rogue Isles. What's more, they convinced the Carnival of Shadows to help them break into Babylon and the Golden Giza! I really don't like the sound of this 'Chaos Affair' the Carnival is talking about either. We should find out more about this even and what they're planning to do there.

Mission acceptance

We better find out where this Chaos Affair is happening, and fast.

Unnecessary solicitation

You found out where and when this Chaos Affair is? Get goin'!

Mission Objective(s)

  • Interrogate Carnival
    • Defeat 30 Carnies

The Carnival minions relate that their mistresses plan to destroy one of the warding statues keeping the demons out of Babylon. You also find an invite to the Chaos Affair.'

Debriefing

We're going to have to do something about this Chaos Affair. If the seal is broken all hell will break loose!


Keep Wailers out of Babylon Edit

Briefing

Alright - we know the Carnival is having this 'Chaos Affair' street event as a cover to destroy one of the main wards on St. Martial keeping the Wailers out of the Golden Giza and St. Martial. If that happens, we got the place overrun by demons, and the whole of St. Martial is going down the drain. This is a matter of survival. Stop the Carnival from destroying the warding statue.

If you fail at that, you're going to have to deal with a whole lot of Wailers screaming in and trying to overwhelm the place. If you can hold 'em off long enough, I can put a temporary ward in place which will keep 'em out until the statue can be repaired. In any case you need to take down Lady Devereaux, the Carnival leader responsible for this mess.

You have 75 minutes to complete this mission.

Mission acceptance

This is gonna be tough, Character. If you got any favors to call in with other villains, I suggest you do it.

Unnecessary solicitation

Get movin' - we don't have much time.

Excellent work, Character. You helped prevent the Carnival and the Wailers from laying waste to St. Martial. We may be villains, but it doesn't mean we can't protect our own.

Missions Edit

Level 30-34 Missions Edit

Retrieve banishing ritual Edit

Briefing

There's all kinds of banishing rituals you can perform when dealing with demons. Some rituals require true names of demons, some rituals require a part of the contract they made with a mortal, some require rare magical ingredients. Needless to say, it's a good idea for a demon hunter to have as many as possible at your disposal - a banishing ritual for all occasions.

I got an associate on Sharkhead who is willing to pass one on to me in return for a future favor. Retrieve the banishing ritual from the Archmage Tarixus.

Mission acceptance

Watch out - I think the demons suspect what we're up to and might try to take you out!

Unnecessary solicitation

You got the banishing ritual from Tarixus yet? Get on that!


Mission Objective(s)

  • Retrieve banishing ritual

V archetypeicon stalker Ambush! After zoning into Sharkhead Isle on your way to Tarixus, there will be an ambush by Wailers.
Wailer: "Character must diiiiieeee!"
Briefing

I sensed your arrival, Character. Yes, I can provide a banishing ritual for Hardcase. The demon hunter and I have an understanding; this is a repayment for services he has rendered to me in the past.

Here is the ritual. Leave now before you draw the Wailers here!


Icon clue generic
Banishing ritual of Tarixus
This ritual calls upon the power of Mu to permanently banish otherworldy entities.


Debriefing

You got the ritual? Nice work. Hope the demons didn't cause you too much trouble.

This ritual is excellent! I better put this sucker away for safekeeping.


Defeat Circle and Wailer negotiators Edit

Briefing

I hate the Circle of Thorns. Their mystics are responsible for bringing in more demons into this world than anyone, and that ain't healthy for anyone, hero or villain. Y'see, if demons get their toehold into our world, they won't stop until they rule it all - including you and me.

One of the local Circle mystics has been askin' about, trying to find more stuff on the Wailers. He wants to get control over a new type of demon in order to expand his power base. I want you to take him down - permanent-like. Head over to the secret caves where the Circle mystic is making a pact with a Wailer demon, and take 'em down!

Mission acceptance

Juat wipe 'em out. We're all better off without 'em.

Unnecessary solicitation

What you waitin' for? You want the Circle callin' Wailers on your head? Get movin'!


Mission Objective(s)

A grim foreboding washes over you. Dark forces are at work here.

  • Defeat Circle and Wailer negotiators

Debriefing

You took them down? Excellent. Less Circle mystics means less demons running around.


Defeat Pandora and minions Edit

Briefing

You know about the Carnival of Shadows? They're some crazy super-powered chicks who think they're high-class party girls. They'll do anything if it'll amuse them, no matter who dies because of it. The word on the street is a Carnie named Pandora who made a deal with some Wailers. She sneaks in a box full of them into the Golden Giza and lets them out, then all hell breaks loose in there! The Carnival gets to cause all manner of chaos while the demons run wild!

This is just bad business for St. Martial. There's some fat bucks flowing through these parts, and we can't afford the downtime. Take down Pandora and retrieve the Demon Box.

Mission Acceptance

Pandora and her groupies have taken over one of the St. Martial offices. Head over there and take her down!

Unnecessary solicitation

This is a small carved box made of wood stained black carved with intricate sigils, while silver hinges and clasp keep the box closed. It trembles slightly in your hand and you hear dark whispers in your mind. The Demon Box can call upon the powers of darkness to snare your foes with living darkness from the netherworld. If you are of Magic origin, you can unleash the demonic minions within the box instead!
You may call upon the power of the Demon Box three times before the wailing demons within it are drained of all their dark energies.


Debriefing

You got the Demon Box? Perfect.

Look, I know you must be sick of me tellin' you what to do, so this is where you get the payoff. The Demon Box has got some major mojo in it, and the more you use it, the more the demons inside suffer as you steal their energy to power the box. Demons suffer, and you get more powerful. Sounds like a sweet deal for both of us! Don't say Hardcase doesen't look after his own.

Stop Wailers in spirit world Edit

Briefing

We got some trouble. All the local mystics have been freakin' out about demons in the spirit world, sayin' they're ripping apart some kinda magical essence there. This don't sound good, and I'm thinkin' this might have somethin' to do with the Giza.

There's a guy over in Cap Au Diable named Virgil Tarikoss. I helped Tarikoss with a demon problem at one point, and he owes me one. He'll be expecting you, and will open a portal to the spirit world, allowing you to enter. Head into the spirit world and stop whatever the demons are up to.

Briefing

There's some weird stuff going on with the Wailers. I hear they've been seen diggin' tunnels in the sewers beneath Babylon and the Golden Giza. Considering there's no demons found inside the Golden Giza, they must be trying to avoid something which is keepin' them out. If they succeed, they will wreck Babylon, which'll kill the money flowin' through St. Martial. Stop the Wailers from entering Babylon.

Briefing

Well, it looks like even the Wailers are even trying to make pacts with the Tsoo! I doubt the Tsoo are going to buy into it, but the sum total is the same: if the Wailers get an edge, it could mean St. Martial being overrun by demons. Break up the meeting between the Wailers and the Tsoo!

I consider St. Martial my home, and the people who work in St. Martial my people. Well, I just got word some of my people have gone missing. Some Council goons came chargin' in and loaded up a bunch of the locals into trucks. I heard they do experimentation on people they kidnap, and that just ain't cool. Not on my people.

Stop the Carnival pact Edit

Briefing

The Carnival of Shadows have been causing problems again. They've been making some deals with the Wailers, gaining power over them by luring people away to use as bargaining chips in pacts with the demons. The Carnival has just taken a bunch of people from a local tenement for the Wailers, and that just ain't cool. Stop the Carnival from carrying out their deal with the Wailers.

Mission acceptance

If we don't prevent these people from being kidnapped, the Wailers are gonna gain more power in St. Martial. Besides, no one deserves their souls ripped away by demons. No one.

Provide relief against Wailers Edit

Briefing

Got another problem with our old friends the Wailers. They've been getting aggressive again, attacking people in the local neighborhoods. The local Arachnos authority have been called in, but the local force is havin' trouble dealin' until backup arrives. If you're up for it, help the local Arachnos force against the Wailer incursion.

Unnecessary solicitation

You gonna relieve those Arachnos soldiers? Get movin'!

Mission Objective(s)

You hear a few bursts from an Arachnos rifle fire off as you step onto the streets of St. Martial.

  • Provide relief against Wailers
    • Rescue assault leader
    • 3 squad leaders to rescue

You provided relief for the Arachnos force!

Note: This is a somewhat tricky mission; the Squad Leaders are minions who can spawn as Fortunatas, Mu Strikers, Tarantulas or, apparently, any Arachnos model appropiate for their level. Once they spawn, they will be attacked by a nearby group of Wailers each. They may (and most probably will) be killed if you don't find them quickly and aid them. On the other hand, nothing happens if they die, there is no penalty for it. The Crab Spider Assault Leader is the only NPC who will lend you a hand here.

The mission will end once you have defeated the groups of Wailers who attack the Squad Leaders (and the Assault Leader). You do not need to attack anything else or clear the map.
