Scouting report[edit]

Welcome to Metrica Province. You'll find private laboratories all over where our krewes work on dangerous research, and we pay the price for excellence. Labs need to be carefully maintained, but I'm sure that's not news to you. We see a fair bit of interference from the Inquest. They're envious of our advances and covet our research materials. Our researchers could use someone with your talents. On your journey you may also encounter nefarious events in the world. Don't let these opportunities pass by you. Jump in and help!

As you gad about, you'll encounter our magical matter-transportive devices, more commonly known as waypoints. They're mini-gates that — for a minimal fee — transport you across great distances. They're the second most convenient way to travel, next to our gates.

In the vast wide world, a plethora of challenges await you, some more demanding than others. Watch for the special ones, because they'll give you an opportunity to increase your skill and exceed your own limits.

  • If the player is an asura, before talking to Technician Penn for the first time, his on-screen name and lack of icon do not identify him as a scout. There is, however, a green star over his head.
  • He wrote a book that can be found in the Durmand Priory's library.
