How to Break into the Arcatraz is the quest which finally grants you a key to the Arcatraz.


A'dal has tasked you with the recovery of the Top and Bottom Shards of the Arcatraz Key. Return them to him, and he will fashion them into the Key to the Arcatraz for you.


A message was embedded in the ata'mal crystal that you recovered. Nexus-Prince Haramad has given us information vital to our campaign against Tempest Keep.

He tells us that there are two pieces, shards to a key, which, when combined, will unlock the keep's Arcatraz satellite.

One half is possessed by an ancient in the Botanica known as Warp Splinter. The other is held by Pathaleon the Calculator inside the Mechanar.

Bring both shards to me and I will combine them into the Arcatraz key.


In addition to the [Key to the Arcatraz], you will receive 13Gold 20Silver and be allowed to choose one of the following:

Inv belt 10
Inv belt 16
Inv misc cape 11
Inv belt 23
Inv belt 11


<A'dal's voice vibrates melodically through your mind.> You have returned. Do you bring with you the two shards of the Arcatraz key?


I am impressed, <name>, though I should expect nothing less of the hero who returned the ata'mal crystal to us. Give over the two shards and I will see to it that they are combined into their final form. Then you will have access to the Arcatraz.


Upon completion of this quest you will gain:


The top shard drops from Warp Splinter in the Botanica and the bottom drops from Pathaleon the Calculator in the Mechanar. Both are party drops (everyone on the quest can get them on the same kill).
