An asari on Kadara hasn't spoken to her mother since she was exiled from the Nexus. There's a possibility the signal from her communications equipment could reach the Nexus, but it's broken. Ryder needs to look into repairing the equipment for her.

Acquisition Edit

Speak to the asari refugee located at the refugee site in the Haarfel region of Kadara. This task unlocks after interrogating Vehn Terev during Hunting the Archon. The location is marked on the map with an (!) when Ryder gets close.

Walkthrough Edit

Scan Broken Communications Equipment Edit

Scan the communications terminal on the desk in front of the grated window inside the hut. Go up to the roof and scan the communications array.

Repair The Equipment Edit

After scanning the array, find the interaction prompt and fix the array.

Verify Equipment Is Working Edit

Return to the inside of the hut and hear the refugee's mother through the radio to verify it's working. This completes the task.

The pumping equipment outside the front of the house can be scanned for +10 Rd icon milkyway orange.
The water tanks behind the house can be scanned for +10 Rd icon milkyway orange.

Player Notes Edit

  • Speak to the salarian, and he will give Ryder UV Lights needed for the mission Emergency S.O.S..
  • Speak to the turian, and he lets Ryder know he needs some antibiotics for the patient. One of the datapads has a message promising some helpful herbs but no location is given. "Those who seek, shall find," it says. It happens to be the same people needing the UV lights. Unfortunately, it is not possible to collect any of those herbs.
