Quest Reward(s): My Name is Morning
Access to Rudus Dungeon:

Entering this map immediately grants the player access to all 3 floors of Rudus Dungeon, and My Name is Morning since Teleport is allowed inside.

  1. Talk to Elena Volkova near the mining facility entrance on the inside. She says the investigation will take longer than expected after the discovery of a suspiciously-erected wall.
  2. Talk to Rookie sp_rudus193284 located directly south of Elena. He tells the player their progress is blocked by a large 3-layer door and needs help investigating it. He tasks the player to investigate around the wall for other means of entry. They're all given yellow + marks on the mini-map.
    • Wall on the Railroad - Rebellion Member sp_rudus304266 to the East. He deduces that the wall was built after the refinery was no longer under operation after noticing how it cuts across the railroad instead of around it.
    • Watchtower - Rebellion Member sp_rudus121286 to the West. He says that the pillar beside the wall was actually a watchtower after climbing it and mentions that he noticed lots of movement on the other side of the wall.
    • Small Hole - Notice a Small Hole sp_rudus27300 along the western edge of the map that looks like it was made my a small animal.
  3. Report the findings back to Rookie. Meanwhile, Rookie was able to unlock the door but discovered it was designed with a weird mechanism: someone has to keep holding the button to keep it open. He points out that the odd design was probably meant to contain what was on the other side, as he has only ever seen similar mechanics used in prisons and penitentiaries.
  4. Ominous Noise is heard from the other side of the door. Since Rookie has to stay behind, the player is asked to investigate instead. Hunt:
  5. Report the presence of monsters back to Rookie who confirms that the wall was designed for containment of those monsters as he expected.
  6. Walk north to relay all the uncovered info back to Captain Elena Volkova and the player is rewarded with 800,000 Base EXP (in two bundles of 400,000), ?? Job EXP, and 15 Cor Core.
  7. Report back to Tes at the Cat on a Bullet Cat Cafe in Einbroch. After explaining everything to him, he thinks it may be a secret dump site for failed test subjects.
