This is a straightforward kill-all-enemies mission. As you start the instance, Logan joins you. Several Seraph will also join you as you progress along. The NPCs, including Logan himself are not very durable, but they at least help absorb some damage. Follow the marker and to the ramp, killing all bandits along the way. Keep following the path until you reach the high road, where you will have to deal with Doc Howler and several waves of bandits. Kill them all and the mission is complete.

Almost all of the enemies in this mission punish melee attackers severely - you will face multiple foes with Bonfire and Whirling Defense simultaneously, and there are a few bandits that run up and drop explosives at your location. Taking a ranged weapon of some sort is highly advisable.







Entering instance:

Logan Thackeray: The well is just ahead. Stay close.
Logan Thackeray beckons to <Character name>

Talking to Logan Thackeray:

Logan Thackeray: You made a tough decision. I respect that. If Two-Blade Pete poisons the well, a lot of people will die. We can stop that.
Talk end option tango.png Can, and will. I feel bad for Quinn, but I can't sacrifice innocents in the city for his mistakes.

At Grenth Low Road:

Child: Help!
Villager: Help! I need help!

Approaching Doc Howler:

Doc Howler: Bug nuts, it's the Seraph! Keep 'em off me till I get the compound into the well!
Doc Howler threatens <Character name>.

Cinematic after defeating Doc Howler and her bandits:

Doc Howler: No more! You win. Congratulations. You spoiled my greatest experiment. Too bad your friend Quinn won't be around to help you celebrate.
<Character name>: What do you mean? Where is Quinn?
Doc Howler: He's dead, Hero. We heard about the apothecary. You don't ruin the apex of my scientific career without consequences. Two-Blade Pete carved him up like a Wintersday Roast.
<Character name>: You think this is funny? I'll kill you and your whole gang!
Logan Thackeray: Calm down. I'll make sure this piece of trash gets what's coming to her. Seraph! Take the prisoner out before I chop her up and feed her to the harpies.
<Character name>: Pete killed Quinn... Pete's got to pay. I helped you, Captain, and now I'm calling in that favor. I want Two-Blade Pete in the ground.
Logan Thackeray: Agreed. Listen, Pete will be after you next-he can't afford to let you live. Meet me at the tavern, and when Pete comes for you, we'll be waiting for him.
<Character name>: All right. But if Pete doesn't come to us, I'm tearing this whole city apart until I find him.

After cinematic:

Logan Thackeray: I've been where you are right now. Don't lose control: save what you're feeling for the person responsible.

Talking to Logan:

Logan Thackeray: Thanks for all your help. And don't worry—we'll avenge Quinn. Meet me back at the tavern, and we'll settle things with Two-Blade Pete once and for all.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks, Captain. I'll see you there.

My story[edit]

I decided to go with Logan to protect the well, and we thwarted the poisoners' plans. The bandits told me Two-Blade Pete had killed Quinn. I wish I could've saved him, but I had to do what I thought was right.
