- Search the Inquest lab for information regarding Joko's invasion force.
- Defeat the Inquest security golems.
- Check the console for clues.
- Take the elevator to the observation platform.

When you enter the instance, there is an Inquest console to the left; interact with it to reset the password. There are 3 inquest up on the platform and another console to interact with, then you can start opening the gates.
Each "gate controller" will open one of the gates- do not stand in the circle of drones, or they will attack.
After first few gates, there are groups to the left and right to kill; the left has golem disabler (if you reset the password) and a message, right is dialogue.
Take the elevator up. Before the first door is 2 consoles; left is a dead charr, right is a control for achievement – make sure to hit all the consoles in this room for achievements.After the Mysterious Charr breaks through the glass, defeat all the golems to spawn the elevator controller.
Kill all the inquest running around for the achievement, then listen to the message on the console. There are also several documents around and you must read all of them for another achievement [verification requested] – when finished,you can take the elevator up. Jump off the platform circled in green to finish the instance.
When you complete the instance, you are immediately moved into the next story instance, A Kindness Repaid.

- Start of the instance
- Rox: Some kind of lab. Is this Rata Primus?
- Taimi: Supposed to be a pretty big base. Could be more than one building.
- <Character name>: Keep your eyes open for any sign of Joko or the gate hub he's using.
- Rox: No good trying to sneak past these guys if we need to search the place.
- Braham Eirsson: Fine by me.
- Interacting with Inquest Console on ground floor
- PA Announcer: All labs—this is the director.
- PA Announcer: Some of your maybe aware of a minor security issue in Rata Primus involving a small number of...cadaverous intruders.
- PA Announcer: Security has the matter in hand. Rumors to the contrary will result in compliance correction or expungement.
- PA Announcer: All labs are to continue with business as usual. Director out.
- Taimi: "Cadaverous" sounds a lot like Joko's goons. I think we're on the right track.
- Reaching the second floor
- Braham Eirsson: Spirits... Look at the poor creatures in these cells.
- Rox: The live test subjects we've been hearing about.
- Taimi: Just when you think the Inquest couldn't get any more despicable...
(There is some un-recorded dialogue between specimen researchers before you open the gate; it doesn't appear on the chat log.) [verification requested]
- Opening the first set of gates
- Mysterious Charr: You're a stain on this land. A blight. You'll pay for what you've done.
- Inquest Specimen Researcher (1): We've seen rapid disease progression in these charr, correct?
- Inquest Specimen Researcher (2): Yes, but we're only tested a few. Their village is close by, and Security didn't want the locals out for blood.
- Inquest Specimen Researcher (1): Ridiculous. If they act up, we trigger the quarantine protocol. Let's get this one infected. I'll fetch a sample.
- Mysterious Charr: I'm not your lab animal. Release me!
- Upon opening the last gate
- (Inquest Specimen Researcher points at <Character name>.)
- Inquest Specimen Researcher: Wha— How did you— Intruders!
- Rox: Whoa! You see that?
- If asura:
- Mysterious Charr: I didn't expect help from an asura.
- <Character name>: We don't all share the Inquest's ideas. Besides, you obviously didn't need much.
- Mysterious Charr: Your arrival was well timed.
- <Character name>: You obviously didn't need much help.
- PA Announcer: Alert. Security breach in progress. Initiating radical decontamination protocol level one.
- Braham Eirsson: THAT sounds like a problem...
- After defeating all golems
- PA Announcer: Alert. Radical decontamination protocol level one unsuccessful. Proceeding to level two.
- <Character name>: We need to get out of here. Any other prisoners?
- Mysterious Charr: The others from my tribe... they didn't make it.
- Rox: Your tribe?
- Mysterious Charr: Our village is nearby.
- Braham Eirsson: Can we talk about how to get out of here?
- Mysterious Charr: Upstairs. There is a platform that can take us to the roof. I'll come with you.
- Reaching the third floor
- PA Announcer: Alert. Preparing for radical decontamination protocol level two. Evacuation is strongly advised.
- Inquest Specimen Researcher (1): Level two! Leave everything—we have to get out!
- Inquest Specimen Researcher (2): Are you insane? Grab your data! Without it, you're worthless!
- Once spotted
- Inquest Specimen Researcher (1): Test subjects—they're loose!
- (Inquest Specimen Researcher points at <Character name>.)
- Inquest Specimen Researcher (2): Don't engage! That's what the quarantine protocols are for.
- PA Announcer: Alert. Distress message received. Source: Rata Primus, Main Complex.
- Taimi: Sounds important. See if you can listen to it.
- Interacting with the second Inquest Console (Research Wing Terminal K-0062)
- Inquest Console: Access Research Wing Terminal K-0062 Incoming message available.
- Play message.
- <Character name>: It says, "Distress message. Subject: Awakened attack. Audio failed. Sender: Gorrik."
- Taimi: Aw, Gorrik! Not you too! I know him; he's Blish's little brother.
- <Character name>: Blish- the college friend Blish?
- Taimi: Yeah. Gorrik's an entomologist. And, if I'm honest, kinda weird. But still, the Inquest?
- Braham Eirrson: Well, I guess we know where to find Joko's Awakened: the "Main Complex."
- Mysterious Charr: The big central structure of the invaders' base. We'll be able to see it from the roof.
- Braham Eirsson: How do you know?
- Mysterious Charr: Because I know.
- PA Announcer: Alert. Radical decontamination protocol level two is imminent.
- <Character name>: Okay, everyone on the elevator.
- Lab will self-destruct in 2 minutes.
- Mysterious Charr: There's the exit.
- Reaching the roof of the lab
- Rox: (gasp)
- Braham Eirsson: Whoa... that is huge.
- <Character name>: Rata Primus, I presume.
- Mysterious Charr: Hurry! We'll have to jump.
- Lab will self-destruct in 1 minute.
- The ending of this chapter may be a reference to Pokémon: The First Movie, where in this scene, Mewtwo escapes and promptly destroys the lab.
