Content page Note
Adrenal Adjustment Adrenal Adjustment recipes are dropping only at levels 10 through 16. Level 17, 18, 19, and 20 recipes are not available.
Akarist During the mission Recover Zoria and Akarist he's presented as a Boss-level ally, but he's actually a Pet.
Alan Desslock First mission described in mission text as Part Two - should be Part One. The second mission in the mini-arc is referred to as Part One.
Ambassador Alwani Despite being presented as a Lieutenant level ally, he has Pet life points and his attacks aren't those of a Lieutenant-level mob either. Don't let him get into too much trouble, especially since he's a mission objective and must survive the mission
American Diplomat Despite being presented as a Lieutenant level ally, he has Pet life points and his attacks aren't those of a Lieutenant-level mob either. Don't let him get into too much trouble if you want him to survive

Arachnos Disguise Currently bugged. A large number of players will lose this temp power when they log out regardless of how much time they might have used it. At this time, the devs are aware of this bug, but will not help or return this power to you.
Barracuda Strike Force If you leave the mission with these powers (e.g. by going to the hospital), you will lose all of them. The machine will not give them to you a second time.
Basse Croupier Ms. Vashers does not currently spawn within the mission. However, by defeating T33 V33 along with his escort next to him, as well as the Tank Smasher and his escort, the mission will still be completed.
Captain Dietrich This is the same case as Lt. Sefu Tendaji. When she appears as an ally, Dietrich is presented as a Hero; She is not. During the mission (Heroic, Solo) she spawned as 51, and had 965 hit points (oddly enough same as Sefu, who spawned as 50), above a Lieutenant of the same level, but very far from the 28870 a Hero/AV of level 51 has. Her attacks were absolutely far from being Hero-level, though the Stuns and Immobilizations she deals are useful. My advice is to treat her like a Pet class ally.)
Crey The Shining Light spawns in the Shadow Shard quite frequently. It is unclear whether this is really a bug, however.
Darrin Wade Altough Kadabra Kill and Sigil are Heroes according to their target window, they have Boss-class HP, and do not possess Purple Triangles.
Discouraging Words Discouraging Words recipes are dropping only at levels 10 through 16. Level 17, 18, 19, and 20 recipes are not available.
Dr. Quaterfield Task Force This mission is a mislabelled defeat all. Rescuing the five hostages and defeating the leader and his room will NOT complete the mission.
Eden Trial There is currently a bug in starting this Trial. The leader of the group must be within the level range, otherwise the trial will not start and the group will be disbanded.
Eden Trial Gale, Quill, Slate, and Tundra, after being rescued, will not follow the other Heroes due to some unknown bug. However, if enemies are led to them, they will still engage in combat.
Encouraged Accuracy Encouraged Accuracy recipes are dropping only at levels 10 through 16. Level 17, 18, 19, and 20 recipes are not available.
Exploited Vulnerability Exploited Vulnerability recipes are dropping only at levels 10 through 16. Level 17, 18, 19, and 20 recipes are not available.
General Z Despite being presented as a Boss level ally, he always has Pet life points and his attacks aren't those of a Boss-level mob either. Don't let him get into too much trouble, especially if he's a mission objective and must survive the mission
Halloween Event 2007 Bloody Bay is currently bugged. It appears to be set to allow trick or treating for levels 10-20, but since all characters entering the zone are Sidekicked/Exemplared to level 25, they are no longer in the level range for trick or treating.
Halloween Event 2008 Bloody Bay is currently bugged. It appears to be set to allow trick or treating for levels 10-20, but since all characters entering the zone are Sidekicked/Exemplared to level 25, they are no longer in the level range for trick or treating.
Hardcase A clue is meant to drop after defeating the Freakshow and Wailer, but does not drop. In addition, the next mission states the Freakshow in this mission should be Sonic Freakshow. Even on other difficulty settings, any Boss characters would simply be turned into Lieutenant-class while retaining their identity, so it's not like a Noise Tank would be turned into a Noise Chief or whatever...
Hardcase All Freakshow within the mission will take out boomboxes, and dance when spawned for a few seconds... before they revert to standard taunt emoting. Other enemies with different scripted emotes in other missions generally stick to their special emote, so this may be a bug.
Hardcase Trey Belcleff does not currently spawn within the mission. However, by defeating Blahpunk along with his escort next to him, the mission will still be completed.
Hardcase The Carnival Party Hat souvenir appears bugged at the moment. It doesn't have the usual intro for souvenirs and the ending is incomplete.
Hardcase If you fail this mission, the half-completed souvenir will remain in your clues tab and will not be moved over to the souvenir tab. Ensure that you defeat Devereaux even if the Warding Statue is destroyed or not to prevent this.
Imperious Task Force Though Daedalus is presented as a Hero, his Hit Points and attacks are more like those of a Boss class ally. This was recently patched, as before, his Hit Points and attacks were more like those of a Pet class ally.
Imperious Task Force Though Imperious is presented as a Hero, his Hit Points and attacks are more like those of a Boss class ally. This was recently patched, as before, his Hit Points and attacks were more like those of a Pet class ally.
Issue 18 Base Flight was increased to 50% instead of 33% and the attempt to fix that only increased fly speeds even more so. Castle (Developer) has said they are aware of this. A future patch should reduce fly speeds to the intended 33% buff.
Issue 18 This opacity setting never worked throughout all of Beta. The contact dialog window is transparent and remains transparent regardless of any settings.
Kristof Jaeger Dr. Vimes does not currently spawn within the mission. However, by defeating the Longbow Officer along with his escort next to him, the mission will still be completed. To find the correct one if playing in a large team, they will have dialogue to give themselves away.

Longbow Minigun: "Relax, Dr. Vimes. We'll handle it."
Longbow Officer: "We've got trouble! Secure the area!"

Loading Screen Tips
Currently does not function. You cannot turn off tips.
Lt. Demitrovich Captain Yushenko is not in the mission though afterwards it will say you rescued her. There is a boss Pariah prelate in the last room standing in the same pose as they usually do when guarding a hostage though, and when you kill that and its group it will complete the mission.
Lt. Sefu Tendaji This is the same case as Captain Dietrich. During missions where he appears as an ally, Sefu is presented as an Elite Boss; He is not. During my mission, (Heroic, Solo) he had 965 hit points, above a Lieutenant of the same level, but very far from the 5350 an Elite Boss of level 50 has. His attacks, though strong, were also far of turning him into the destruction machine he should be. His bubble shields make him hard to kill, but don't think he's immortal.
Lt. Sefu Tendaji At the mission Fight back Rikti raids, where he joins you, he's described as an Elite Boss, but his Hit Points and attack levels are those of a Pet of the same level.
Lt. Sefu Tendaji During the mission Investigate Renegade Safe House he's presented as an Elite Boss, but once again, he has Pet Hit Points and attacks, so the class is wrong once again.
Lt. Sefu Tendaji In the Capture Captain Racer mission from Gaussian, if your character is set to the highest difficulty level, Sefu Tendaji will be at "ArchVillain/Hero" level rather than an Elite Boss (i.e. 25,000+ hit points, 800 endurance, boosted regeneration, and very powerful attacks), even though his rank is still listed as 'Elite Boss' in the mission.
Marshal Brass Although thematically and plot-wise part of the The Aeon Conspiracy story-arc, this mission is not considered such by the game, meaning it can actually be given out after the storyarc itself, and isn't included in the Flashback.
Marshal Brass As of 6 April 2007 Dr. Flammond, like many other NPCs in other missions, is missing and can't be found anywhere in this mission. Just defeat the group of the Boomer talking to the air and the mission will end successfully.
Mender Lazarus Task Force Though his description says he's an Archvillain/Elite Boss, Nosferatu actually has Hit Points and attack level of a Boss/Lieutenant ally. It really doesen't matter, as he's still as deadly as usual.
Mender Lazarus Task Force Though their description says they are Archvillain/Elite Bosses, Nosferatu and Burkholder actually have Hit Points and attack levels of Boss/Lieutenant rank allies.
Mender Silos Strike Force The name of Malaise is incorrect: Maliase
Mender Silos Task Force This mission is currently missing the second Arachnos Raid Leader.
Mender Silos Task Force Though Manticore is presented as a Hero, his Hit Points and attacks are more like those of a Boss class ally.
Mender Silos Task Force Though Manticore is presented as a Hero, his Hit Points and attacks are more like those of a Boss class ally
Mender Silos Task Force Though each Vindicator and Freedom Phalanx character is presented as a Hero, his Hit Points and attacks are those of a Pet class ally, regardless of difficulty. Citadel is the only exception to this rule, and he spawned as an Elite Boss. He could be a Hero in fact. Please update this info if this is the case.
Mercedes Sheldon Currently bugged. You can end up not being able to Complete Mission, despite everyone in the map being defeated.
Miscellaneous Merit Rewards Castle has confirmed that the Arachnos Flier should not be giving merits in the Ms. Liberty Task Force, and is exploring how to fix this for a future release.
Montague Castanella Although Lady Jane is a Hero according to her target window, she has Pet-class HP, and does not possess Purple Triangles.
Operative Kirkland Missing Clues: The Souvenir text suggests that you learn something during this mission, but it seems the Clues are bugged at the present, and no info is offered at all. Perhaps one Clue for finding the Nezrix parchment and another one for defeating the leading Tellus would be the ones missing. Please add these clues if you know them.
Operative Renault Strike Force Please note that currently, the Strike Force will not reward completion with special Temporary Powers as listed at the bottom of this article. More information is required on this.
Peter Themari despite what the entrance message tells you, the mission takes place inside a building with carpets...
Police Radio The above mission text specifically cites the Leshy corpse. However, the mission objective can be any object, not necessarily the Leshy corpse.
Scirocco Ambush dialogue is missing.
Shrouded Badge Currently this badge is bugged, and is being awarded simply for entering and spending a short amount of time on the correct map.
Sister Airlia Though Ghost Widow is presented as an Archvillain, her Hit Points and attacks are more like those of a Boss-class ally.
Stardusk Unfortunately this part seems to be bugged. Stardusk and the guards, unlike other villains, won't say a single word.
Talshak the Mystic Talshak has no "You're too busy" dialogue.
The Players' Guide to the Cities/Character Slot Management "Check Name" button is not available on a server until you have created at least one character on that server.
The Players' Guide to the Cities/Character Slot Management The product description text is garbled and unreadable.
Tina Macintyre One or both the above NPCs may fail to spawn for a solo player (neither of them appeared on Heroic, only Aue'io on Unyielding). It is possible that they only spawn for larger teams. However, mission completion is not affected.
Tina Macintyre In this mission, the hostage Scientists will take on the appearance of the Fifth Column's Mek Man. It is unknown if this is intentional due to Tina's dimension-hopping missions, or some sort of skinning bug.
Torin23/sandbox/Vivacious Verandi After each planted weapons, some waves of attackers will spawn. Attackers should be (and talk like) Family thugs, but are Freakshow. The other Freakshow will attack them despite this.)
Vivacious Verandi After each planted weapons, some waves of attackers will spawn. Attackers should be (and talk like) Family thugs, but are Freakshow. The other Freakshow will attack them despite this.)
Volley of Velocity Volley of Velocity recipes are dropping only at levels 10 through 16. Level 17, 18, 19, and 20 recipes are not available.
Waylon McCrane Just like many other NPC Aliies, though he's presented as a Boss, he's actually a Pet
