Track The Poachers Edit
There are two initial navpoints, one is northwest of Techiix and the other east-southeast of the Ja Niihk Dig Site . Both will be small portable shelters, already abandoned by the poachers. After the first camp is found in the northwest, Jaal will comment that the poachers must be following the yevara.
Note: It's not required to visit both camps but there is more dialogue if visiting the northwest and then the southeast camp. If Ryder visits the southeast camp first, there is no need to go to the northwest camp.
Read Poacher Datapad Edit
The second camp in the southeast contains a datapad, with the following message:
Find Poacher Camp Edit
Once both camps have been explored, a new navpoint appears east of Eroesk, where a cave is located. Take out the camp of Outlaws outside the cave entrance, then head into the cave. Be mindful of life support as solar heaters are few and far between in this area. Follow the navpoints through the cave.
Investigate Poacher Cave Edit
There is another squad of Outlaws dug in inside the cave. Defeat them. Ryder and the team follow a path mined through the ice to a final cavern, where an angaran doctor, Dr. Lekaaret is waiting for them.
Lekaaret explains that the yevara appear to contain enzymes which could counteract the effect of kett weapons, and is capturing them to find out. Jaal is horrified, which leads Lekaaret to note that the angaran preference for tradition blinds them to the possibility, although the doctor thinks that - if she is allowed to continue with her research - they will eventually accept her work.
It is for Ryder to decide whether to allow the research to continue, Jaal stating that he cannot make the choice.
If Ryder decides not to allow the research to continue, Ryder will instruct SAM to transmit information on Lekaaret's actions to the Angaran Resistance, and advise the angaran to get off the planet while she can.
If Ryder decides to let her continue her research, Ryder will say that Lekaaret has to be upfront with the angara about it. Lekaaret thanks Ryder, saying that her research will work.
After the conversation, next to Dr. Lekaaret's equipment is an Angaran Integrated Tech Node that can be scanned for +100 .
The cave system also contains a number of iridium mineral nodes spread throughout.
