The Smoking Mirror

Recommended Posts

Before I went on a break there was a lower-level mission-chain that ended with a mini-raid in the Mazzaroth Maelstrom.

 

From what i recall there were 3 missions involved (Patrol the border of Mazzaroth, Offense is the best defense, The Smoking Mirror) and involved Gray Feather and Silva.

I just can't seem to get Silva or Gray Feather to talk to my low-level characters (OL54 and OL98) about these missions. I'm using low-level characters, because i remember The Smoking Mirror becoming unavailable at OL100.

 

Are these missions still available? And if so, how do i trigger them?

After combining the logs of 3 avatars which completed The Smoking Mirror along with one char which got the Offense is the best Defense, the missions they all shared are in the quote block below.

 

It seems to hinge on Ishuan and the Beam Lens Research. But that's where things just... stop.

 

Quote

- Nishido factory, Ishuan -
Beam Lens Research (issued by Silva, SE Planet)
Help the Informant (issued by researcher, Nishido Factory, Ishuan)

 

-Ketsugo Observatory, Yokan-
Kill Gorge Larvae (via Message alert)
Kill Red Spindles (via Message alert)

 

- Daniel Malhouse, Dahin-
Scout for Malhause
Spy for the Mordana

 

- Jacob Hester, Ishuan -
Renew Trade Contracts
Scouting for Resources

 

- Ishuan *Message* alert -
Protect the Sundari Manufacturing Facility!

 


Probably unrelated:

  Training NPC in Jupiter. Visit 2 jupiter navs for xp.

I may have been mistaken  I sent two Alts to try and get these missions one below o/l 50 and on above o/l 60 and neither one could get the missions, 

the missions are listed on the missions list, but, do not appear to be active at this juncture

Thanks for the quick reply woodstock 

 

as always your work is appreciated.

 

as a sidenote can you maybe look into re-activating them or is it past it's time in the timeline

and would just be a nuisance/buggy mission more then anything. ?

Activating the missions are content devs area of responsibility if they are required by the story line
