Agree to form a strike force

Strike Force Operative Renault

If you're interested in gaining power and prestige by service to Arachnos, you've come to the right place. I am Strike Force Operative Renault, the right hand of Barracuda just as Barracuda is the right hand of the infamous Captain Mako. Captain Mako seeks the Eye of the Leviathan from the legendary Temple of the Waters. Steal it for Captain Mako and share in the power it brings!

Arachnos intelligence suspects there may be some hero faction who have been shadowing Barracuda. They are to be dealt with appropriately.

The official Arachnos designation of your team will be Strike Force Raider.

Defeat X @ Agincourt, Nerva Archipelago

Find info on coral key

Strike Force Operative Renault

Barracuda managed to escape the Longbow agents sent to stop her from finding the Temple of the Waters. however, she needs to lie low for a while since the heroes seem intent on capturing her. The task lies with Strike Force Raider to follow up on the remaining clues which may lead us to the Temple of the Waters.

The Legacy Chain is a group of mystics who have been collecting magical artifacts in order to safeguard them from dangerous and ambitious villains. One of their recent acquisitions was a coral key, an item which may lead us to the Temple of the Waters. The Legacy Chain has set up a warehouse on Sharkhead to store these artifacts until they can smuggle them off the Rogue Isles. Head into the Legacy Chain hideout and search for into on the coral key.

The Legacy Chain has taken extreme measures to prevent villains from stealing these treasures. Watch out for traps they may have set to discourage intruders.

Mission Complete: Missing

Strike Force Operative Renault

You have secured the coral key? Excellent! If what the Legacy Chain lorekeepers say is true, it should lead us right to the Temple of the Waters!

Your efficiency impresses me. Excellent work!


Disrupt Longbow Operations

Strike Force Operative Renault

You've done an excellent job securing te coral key which should lead us to the Temple of the Waters. However, this constant interference by Longbow is becoming troublesome and annoying. We need to find who is spearheading these operations against us and put them out of commission! Disrupt Longbow investigations into Barracuda!

Once we put the Longbow agents responsible out of commission we can carry out our task without further interference!

Defeat X @ Nerva Archipelago

Appease Ghost Widow

Strike Force Operative Renault

We have a bit of a problem. Apparently, the coral key was on its way to Ghost Widow, and she was not please to find it missing. Your team was identified as the perpetrators of the assault, and she will stop at nothing to punish those responsible.

Fortunately, one of her Fortunatas may be willing to speak to her on your behalf, but there will be a price. It it'll keep Ghost Widow from enacting vengeance it'll be worth whatever price she asks.

Report back once you have appeased Ghost Widow. You'll get final orders from Barracuda when you return.

Part 8: Speak with Kalinda
Delivery @ Mercy Island
Kalinda

Dread Tomax - I've seen you claw your way up from the mess of Darwin's Landing in an effort to prove yourself as one of Lord Recluse's destined ones. Certain things are forgiven for you, but stealing from one of Lord Recluse's own faction leaders if not one of them, even at the behest of another one. Because you are one of Lord Recluse's chosen I ave spoken to Ghost Widow on your behalf, Ghost Widow seeks reparations for your blatant theft. This is non-negotiable: if you seek to gain access to the mystic portal you will need to before perform a task for Ghost Widow.

There is a group known as the Banished Pantheon, a mystical group whose shamons feed upon death and suffering. There is a leader of the Banished Pantheon known as Gharbu who lairs in Paragon City. He possesses a magical artifact called the death rattle which Ghost Widow believes would be a worthy replacement for the coral key. Retrieve it for her and she will allow you to use Technician Naylor's portal.

An Arachnos flyer will deliver you to the graveyard in Paragon City. Go now!

Part 10: Deliver death rattle to Kalinda
Delivery @ Mercy Island
Kalinda

Ah, the death rattle. Ghost Widow's anger will subside now that she has this.

Go now, and do not cross Ghost Widow again!

Strike Force Operative Renault

So Ghost Widow is appeased? Good. Interference from Longbow is one thing, but direct opposition from another of the faction leaders is quite another. Even Captain Mako is careful not to cross Ghost Widow if he can help it.


Retrieve weapons

Strike Force Operative Renault

Looks like everything is set for the raid on the Temple of the Waters. You have secured the coral key, put Longbow in its place, and have gained access to the portal. The power held im the Eye of the Leviathan will soon be ours!

The temple itself is rumoured to have powerful guardians. Barracuda has been gathering weapons to use against the guardians, and wants you to arm up before entering the portal. Head over to the warehouse and retrieve the weapons.

Mission Complete: Missing

Strike Force Operative Renault

Barracuda attacked you? Hrm, most treacherous of her, and foolish - it's unlikely she could have secured the power of the Eye by herself.

I will have to consult with Captain Mako on how to proceed from here.


Raid the Temple of the Waters

Strike Force Operative Renault

The incident with Barracuda was unfortunate. Assuming Barracuda survives the altercation, Captain Mako will have words with her. In the meantime, Strike Force Raider must complete the mission. Enter the Temple of the Waters and retrieve part of the Eye of the Leviathan!

This is the moment we've been waiting for. Find the Eye of the Leviathan!
