In order to successfully make it to the objective, players must keep H.O.X.'s shield active to keep it and Agent Zildi(as well as preventing the players themselves from taking damage) protected from the cannons on the ground and the lasers above. To do so, break the Ancient Ley Line Energy Collectors in the area to get Ley Energy and throw it at H.O.X. to keep the shield powered. If the shield is not kept powered, the NPCs will retreat to a safe area until a shield is built up again.






Before event
Agent Zildi: If I manually access a terminal, I can set our biometric signatures to read as friendly in the defense matrix.
Agent Zildi: I've equipped that clanking fossil over there with a Class IV Defensive Shield.
Agent Zildi: This should be more than adequate to reflect those absurd ballistic defenses, if we can maintain power!
Agent Zildi: I've converted the shields to accept ley-line energy. Now we can utilize the conductors scattered throughout the city.
Agent Zildi: Let's get moving.
H.O.X.: Rata Novus was created to be the city of the future—today! Only the best and brightest krewes were invited to be residents. The city's existence is a closely guarded secret.
After stopping past the first set of turrets
Agent Zildi: Hm. Maybe I was a little dismissive with that "absurd" comment.
Agent Zildi: If we want to collect that ley line energy, someone's going to have to step out of the shield.
Agent Zildi: I'd volunteer, but I'm what they call "mission critical". I guess that means it's going to be you!
Destroying the ley collectors at the start of the tunnel
Agent Zildi: How fortuitous; the destruction of this node has shorted out some of the turret defenses!
Escorting Zildi through the tunnel
H.O.X.: Rata Novus krewes have also been making improvements to both asura gate and golem technology. This unit is an example of the genius at work within these halls!
H.O.X.: Our latest advance harnesses ley energy. We've accelerated research due to a small chak issue. It's schedule to come online any day now! Such exciting times in Rata Novus.
Upon Agent Zildi and H.O.X. retreating
Agent Zildi: Whoa, it's way too rough in here! I can't continue until you get the shields back online!
Approaching Rata Novus Command Center
H.O.X.: That concludes our tour. Please speak Krewe Resources to continue your orientation, and welcome to Rata Novus.
