Contact Introduced By Edit
Wellman is an efficient Arachnos Operative. Rumor has it he was once a beat cop in Paragon City, but got tired of the heroes taking the spotlight. Others say that he was a cop on the take, but Wellman is quick to quash those whispers.
Initial Contact Edit
Hello. I've read your file, and it seems you have potential. Do your job and you might earn a position of power within the Rogue Isles.
Story Arc(s) Edit
Breakout at the Zig Edit
Souvenir: Zig Guard Hat
This is a security guard hat taken from one of the Ziggursky prison guards. You picked it up in a tale you like to call:
Breakout at the Zig
It all started when Arachnos Operative Wellman asked you to acquire the latest list of prisoner transfers to the Zig. To do this you needed to break into a nearby Longbow base to download the list off one of their computers.
Arachnos reviewed the list of new prisoners in the Zig. In addition to the regular criminal minions, there were three villains in particular that Lord Recluse thought would prove useful: Void Ripper, Nexus 99, and Blunt Trauma. An advance agent started a riot in the Zig while you attempted to bust out the villains.
The prisoners were smuggled into a cargo ship to take them to Mercy Island. However, Longbow managed to track down the vessel at sea and secure it for transport back to the Zig. You had to board the cargo ship and defeat all the Longbow agents there. In the end, the cargo ship reached Mercy Island where the prisoners met their new life in the Rogue Isles.
Steal the prisoner transfer list Edit
You know the Zig back in Paragon City? Of course you do - you seem the type. We'd like to get the latest on who's been shipped there recently. If there are some inmates that seem promising, we'd like to free them from incarceration, if you know what I'm saying.
First off, we need to break into a nearby Longbow base and get the latest list of prisoners recently transferred to the Zig. From there, we'll decide who's worth liberating.
Here's the latest passcodes we've acquired from captured Longbow Agents. they should get you into the Longbow base, but from there you're on your own.
I've commandeered a sub here at the docks. Use it to get to the underwater Longbow base.
You enter the underwater base from the airlock and breathe in the recycled air
- Steal the prisoner transfer list
|Prisoner Transfer List|
|This is a list of all the latest prisoners transferred to the Zig in Paragon City.|
You got the list? We'll look it over and see if there's anyone worth springing from the Zig.
Sufficient progress. You're improving. A few enhancements wouldn't do you any harm, though. I want you to take this communication device. I'd like to keep tabs on you.
Break prisoners out of the Zig Edit
We checked out the prisoner transfer list that you stole from that Longbow base and we came up with some likely candidates. there's a bunch of criminals there that'd make good henchman material - one can never be too short on those. there's three prisoners Lord Recluse feels might prove particularly useful: Void Ripper, Nexus 99, and Blunt Trauma. We'll send in an advance agent to start a riot in the facility, then you can go in and break the prisoners out of the Zig.
Note that if you fail to return at least one of these villains, this mission will be deemed a failure in the eyes of Arachnos.
We'll have an Arachnos Flyer ready to take you into the Zig proper. When you get there, make your way to the sewer entrance near the back. We'll have an Arachnos Operative waiting inside the sewer system ready to assist you.
As soon as you bust the prisoners out of the Zig, we'll have a cargo ship waiting to take them to Mercy Isle.
The shouts of rioting prisoners fill the air. Chaos reigns within the Zig
- Break prisoners out of the Zig
- Lonbow Officer (Boss) (Guarding Jenkins)
- Private Security Captain x3 (Boss) (One guarding each prisoner)
- Reinforced Door x3 (one for each prisoner)
- Blunt Trauma (NPC Ally)
- Nexus 99 (NPC Ally)
- Void Ripper (NPC Ally)
- Jenkins (NPC Ally)
We showed those Paragon City fools a thing or two, eh?
We dropped the prisoners off on Mercy Island. From there, it's up to them to prove their worth to Lord Recluse.
Well done! You might have a future in Arachnos yet. If you want to make it far, though, you'll need the very best Enhancements.
Defeat all Longbow Agents on Ship Edit
While you were trying to break those villains out of the Zig, our Arachnos Operatives were loading up a cargo ship full of the mundane prisoners. We thought we were in the clear, but Longbow managed to track the cargo ship we were using to smuggle them to the Rogue Isles. The cargo ship has been taken over by Longbow agents trying to recover the prisoners. Head over to that ship and defeat all the Longbow agents.
Crush those Longbow meddlers. All of them.
The vessel rocks in the high ocean waves
- Defeat all Longbow Agents
- Longbow Officer x2 (Boss)
The ship got to Mercy Island alright, and you sent those Longbow forces packing. Fine work!
Master of Destruction Edit
This is a heavy, well-used sledgehammer. You picked it up during a tale you call:
Master of Destruction
It all started with a request by Arachnos Operative Wellman to prevent a Wyvern interception of an arms shipment to Paragon City. Travelling to the cargo ship, you repelled the Wyvern attack, allowing the shipment to get to the mainland.
The next step was to put a serious damper on the Boomtown reconstruction efforts. Travelling to Paragon City, you destroyed all the supplies in a reconstruction project causing a serious resource drain.
Finally, it was time to put a hurt on the Paragon's pride - it's heroes. you travelled to Paragon City and destroyed a number of statues belonging to prominent heroes.
Defeat all Wyvern Mercenaries Edit
Arachnos supports the efforts of certain rebellious factions in Paragon City by providing them with arms shipments. Usually there's enough bureaucracy involved that Longbow can't really get involved. However, that mercenary group known as Wyvern has no such restrictions.
We recently received word that one of our shipments came under siege by a Wyvern team. Head over to the cargo ship and defeat the attacking Wyvern forces.
Wyvern is a bug that must be crushed by Arachnos.
You pull up alongside the cargo ship. On board you see Wyvern forces securing the deck
- Defeat all Wyvern Mercenaries
- Sting Agent (Boss)
Once you repelled that Wyvern attack, the arms shipment made it through to Paragon City. Nice work.
Destroy Building Supplies Edit
There's efforts being made in Paragon City to rebuild in the wake of the Rikti destruction. Baumton, or Boomtown as it's been called, has become one of the areas of focus. The problem is that Paragon City is a haven for heroes, and rebuilding places like Boomtown serves to strengthen their base of power. This cannot be allowed to happen. The Rogue Isles must retain its dominance, and in order to do so we must undermine Paragon's rebuilding efforts. Head to the construction site and destroy all the building supplies.
Longbow is looking over the reconstruction project, so expect some resistance.
Arachnos operatives take you from Independence Port to a truck which takes you to Boomtown. The area still smolders in the aftermath of the Rikti destruction
- Destroy Boomtown supplies
- Destroy 2 Forklifts, Destroy 5 supply piles
Excellent work! This should do some serious damage to the Boomtown reconstruction efforts.
Destroy statues in Steel Canyon Edit
With your help, we've caused some serious problems for Paragon City. The arms shipment you helped get through flooded Paragon City with more weapons than the criminals know what to do with. When you destroyed the Boomtown reconstruction supplies it put a serious drain on Paragon City's resources. Now we want to hurt the pride which Paragon City has in it's heroes. Go to Steel Canyon and destroy some of their precious hero statues.
Wyvern has been snooping around our operations lately, so you might see a few of those mercenaries about. Don't let them distract you from the task at hand.
- Destroy Hero Statues
- 2 statues to destroy
- Hero Statue x2 (Object)
- Sting Agent (Boss) x6 (Three guarding each statue)
- Dragon Fly (Boss)
- Lead Scorcher (Boss)
Perfect. those monuments to those so-called heroes are where they should be: in dust and rubble.
