Initiative scientists have asked you to analyze mutated wildlife in order to determine what's causing the accelerated growth rate of life on Havarl.

Acquisition Edit

Speak to the Nexus Scientists Dr. Tassana Rilar and Dr. Erich Baumgarten on Havarl in Pelaav Research Station. Only available after completion of A Dying Planet and Cross-Cultural Alliances.

Walkthrough Edit

Cross-Reference Genetic Markers With Known Creature Dens Edit

Activate the Genetic Archive Database in the nearby building and accept the three messages within.

Mutated challyrion
A challyrion of abnormal size and aggressiveness is decimating local wildlife. The navpoint for the beast's hunting ground has been uploaded to you. Recommend approaching with extreme caution. The challyrion is likely to consider you a threat. It may be curious how you taste.

Mutated rylkor
The malfunctioning Remnant vault appears to have modified a rylkor to be more territorial and adaptable. It has been observed defending its feeding grounds at the navpoint uploaded to you. Scans of the rylkor may reveal the nature of its mutations.

Mutated eiroch
An eiroch bearing physical and behavioral signs of genetic modification by Havarl's Remnant vault has made its home near the navpoint just uploaded to you. Scans of the creature should reveal the nature of its mutations and how they've altered the beast from its baseline.

Collect Data From A Mutated Challyrion Edit

The Mutated Challyrion are located to the north of the Pelaav Research Station. There are five Mutated Challyrion. Scan one after they are dead.

Ryder receives +50 Rd icon heleus orange for scanning the mutated creature.

Collect Data From A Mutated Rylkor Edit

The Mutated Rylkor are located just to the east of the Forward Station in the Central Wilds. There are two Mutated Rylkor, and they can be scanned after Ryder kills them.

Ryder receives +50 Rd icon heleus orange for scanning the mutated creature.

Collect Data From A Mutated Eiroch Edit

Find the Mutated Eiroch located south of the Forward Station in the Ancient Courtyard.

Defeat The Roekaar And The Mutated Eiroch Edit

Ryder will stumble upon a group of Roekaar attacking the Mutated Eiroch. There are two Roekaar Raiders and two Roekaar Sharpshooters. The Mutated Eiroch's body will remain after death for a scan.

Ryder receives +50 Rd icon heleus orange for scanning the mutated creature.

Search The Roekaar Hunting Party's SuppliesEdit

There is a Roekaar Datapad in the middle of the camp.

Research Progress
Translated from Shelesh:

Close to confirming Vaaren's theory. We found correlating mutations in both animal and plant life, indicating a singular mechanism tailored to variant cellular and genetic structures. Estimate an 82% chance the mutant strains ravaging Havarl can be replicated elsewhere, allowing us to introduce this toxic process to other planetary biomes.

If Vaaren is correct, we may even improve on the process, generating more destructive efforts on reduced timelines. We could render any world poisonous to outsiders and drive them away for good. No more kett, no more "Initiative." Only our worlds and our people, as it should be.

Investigate The Roekaar Camp Edit

Reading the datapad reveals the location of a Roekaar base in the north of the Ancient Courtyard. Clear out the base and head to the back to find the Roekaar Genetic Research Log, and access it to learn about the Roekaar's plans. SAM asks Ryder whether the files should be immediately deleted, or if Ryder would like to copy them before wiping the computer.

Note: There are no consequences to the choice to delete or copy the Roekaar data.

Return To The Scientists Edit

Head back to Pelaav Research Station. The scientists are delighted over the data Ryder has returned to them.
