Check Your Email Edit
Read the email from Avitus Rix talking about a trail leading to the planet Elaaden.
Acknowledge the email to get a navpoint on Elaaden and the next objective.
Investigate The Anomaly On Elaaden Edit
When Ryder approaches the navpoint, a short distance away a new objective and navpoint is added.
Scan Stasis Pods For Turian Pathfinder Edit
Head to the small hill with debris and vehicles and the navpoint. Ryder will come under attack from Outlaws. Defeat the outlaws. Scan the 8 Cryogenic Stasis Pods for +10 each (+80 ). There are no life signs. However, one of the pods is still powered.
Investigate The Powered Stasis Pod Edit
Ryder says that the squad should finish scanning the pods for Macen and then report back to Avitus.
Ryder receives +29 and +2% Elaaden viability.
Contact Avitus Via Tempest Comm Edit
Head back to the Tempest to speak to Avitus. Avitus says he has been receiving coordinates and numbers he believes from Macen via his implant and wants to investigate the location.
Speak To Avitus On Ark Natanus Edit
There is no gravity on the ark and SAM says the hull is barely holding together. Avitus says it looks like whoever piloted that ark wanted to get to H-047c no matter what. Rather than speculating, the team should investigate the ark.
Explore the Natanus Edit
When Ryder is able to move around on the ark, there is a lootable container and a terminal in the first room. Note: There is no combat on the ark.
Heading into the second room (Foyer), there is another lootable container and another terminal.
Investigate The Console Edit
On a console in the second room, Ryder will find an audio log from the ark's captain. The ark is taking serious damage from something (Ryder knows this must have been the Scourge) and she ordered evacuation of the ark.
Interacting with the right door in the third room reveals that this door also requires power to be diverted to open the door. Return back to the second room and interact with the Ark Natanus Console to power the door.
Return back to the third door and open it to enter the fourth room (Atrium).
Investigate The Console Edit
Interact with the Ark Nataus Console. A cutscene starts and Macen is heard struggling to get to Avitus's pod.
Find The SAM Node Edit
A new navpoint is added in the fifth room. Open the door and head into the room.
Ryder will have to interact with another Ark Natanus Console to divert power to the door. Opening the door starts a cutscene.
The ark's SAM node is damaged. However, Ryder's SAM is able patch it up enough to learn that it was ordered by Macen to send the ark's coordinates to Avitus to make him come to the ark so the Natanus SAM could complete the transfer to make Avitus the new turian Pathfinder as Macen was dying.
Ryder concludes that it's safest to move the ark's SAM to the Nexus before the transfer is made.
Ryder now has to decide to either convince Avitus to become the new pathfinder or not. If Ryder doesn't choose to convince Avitus, Captain Nozomi Dunn will die during the crash landing in Meridian: The Way Home. Four pathfinders are required to keep Nozomi alive and Avitus as a pathfinder makes the total four.
One of two emails will arrive from Director Jarun Tann:
If Avitus is the new pathfinder:
If Avitus refuses to be the new pathfinder:
- +1330 XP
