Scorched Earth

Information based on version

Mithridates, leader of the Mithridati pirates, has invited you into his home in Golden Lake to discuss your differences in a more civil way.

Mission Notes

This is another multi part mission.

Part 1: The Dinner Party

The first part requires you to talk to Mithridates in his mansion. Janice, next to him, will say, in Greek, "Don't trust them," (referring to you) "they're here to kill you". Mithridates will reply in Greek, "Yes, poison the wine and food." He will then ask you to do something in Greek, which roughly translates to "bend over".

You have to go downstairs and talk to the lady with glasses, who will teach you a dance. Go back upstairs and dance for Mithridates, and he will lead you to the dining room to drink.

No matter what, you will be forced to drink, and the instance will end.

Part 2: Fighting For Your Life

You will wake up on a beach with a body next to you and 5 minutes and 30 seconds to live. If you die in this instance, you can retry from the beach. Go as quickly as you can to the coliseum-looking arena and fight Janice, who has 800 health. This is a long and boring multi stage fight, where you will whittle down her health, and she will hide behind a fire barrier and throw fire bombs at you for a couple of seconds while regaining guard, then fight you again. She will enter this phase every quarter health.

Once you defeat her, you can take the bottle at her feet, and the timer will end. Go to the rowboat to enter the next phase.

Part 3: The Heist

You will need to sail your rowboat to Janice's ship, which is a 'Deliverance' Frigate. Notice the two 'Lexington' Stripped Brig and the massive 'Treason' Pirate Flagship behind it, which can't shoot you because Janice's ship is in the way. You will need to fight them in the next part.

This is a simple avcom mission on a ship, where you need to fight a few lieutenant level enemies and their henchmen. Bringing the last enemy to 0hp will turn them friendly, and you can click on the ship's wheel to take command of the frigate.

Part 4: Overwhelming Odds

You will now be in a sea battle against two 'Lexington' Stripped Brigs and the aforementioned massive 'Treason' Pirate Flagship. This fight would be impossible if the 'Lexingtons' were not the same kind as the ones that destroyed their own fleets in the first mission in the chain, One Wave in the Water. Destroying one armor facing of a 'Lexington' will trigger a chain reaction that blows up both, and reduces the 'Treason' to having only 1000 structure and 500 armor on each facing.

The 'Lexingtons' will not sink - don't waste your broadsides on them after you trigger the explosion.

You are given bronze ammunition, so it would be wise to switch to that type before engaging.

After the brigs blow up, your superior maneuverability should allow you to constantly change your broadsides and heal up with your class and career skills, easily finishing off the 'Treason'. Defeating it will finish the mission.
