Contact Introduced By
There's a great young historian you should talk to named Wyatt Anderson. He's an expert on the history of all things super-powered, and he can be a big help to new heroes like you. He's especially interested in taking down the Clockwork and the Trolls. Wyatt's research has him in Steel Canyon these days.
There's a Hmong businessman named Kong Bao who's a real leader in his community. You should talk to him. I'm sure you'd find him quite helpful, especially when it comes to the Tsoo and the Circle of Thorns. Mr. Kong has strong ties to Skyway City.
You'll be helping a great man.
Maggie has better instincts than almost anyone I know. Listen to her and you will have plenty of action.
Mark Freeman is a mutant with the ability to communicate with machines. He has been focusing his attention on the Clockwork activity lately, altough he's also interested in the mysterious Lost. Mark makes his home in Skyway City.
Mark can be a little brusque, but he has a connection that no one else can possibly match.
Juliana Nehring is one of the city's most prolific and popular Internet reporters. She runs an independent news site that features articles about the subjects that most interest her. Her daring approach to journalism has won her national acclaim, although some criticize her for putting too much of herself in the story. She has gone undercover on numerous occasions and risked death more than once. Lately she's been focusing most of her attention on the villains that threaten the city. She's particularly interested in Vahzilok because he, like her, uses the Internet to spread his message.

Find and destroy the containers the Vahzilok are using to store the disease
The Vahzilok have developed a new strain of their wasting disease. You need to find and destroy the containers the Vahzilok are using to store the disease. A lot of lives are in your hands today. You only have 75 minutes to destroy the plague containers.
Make sure you destroy all the containers.
You hear the faint moaning of "Vah...zi...lok"
- Destroy plague containers - 75 minutes timed
- 3 plague containers
Completion of this mission earns a hero the Plague Stopper Badge.
You were key in stopping a plague from overtaking Paragon City.
I can breathe much easier knowing that the threat of the Vahzilok wasting disease has been eliminated.
A used needle may seem like a strange souvenir to some, but to you it's a reminder of one of your closest brushes with death, in an adventure you've come to think of as:
The Vahzilok Plague
It all started when your contact informed you of a deadly new Vahzilok disease. Eager to help, you went into the streets and the sewers to collect data on the diseased Vahzilok. But your heroism was not without its price. You learned that you had been infected with the deadly Vahzilok plague.
Your contact sent you to Professor St. John-Smythe for a cure. But when you arrived at the professor's labs, you found them under attack. You defeated the Vahzilok inside and saved the professor's colleagues, along with some of the precious serum they had concocted. Grateful for your help, one of the scientists used this needle to administer the cure.
Restored to full health, you ventured into the sewers once more, this time on a mission to incinerate the contaminated bodies. You came face to face with Dr. Vahzilok himself, but the mad doctor was not able to prevent you from ridding the world of his plague.
Take the scanning device and use it on any Vahzilok you see
Look, the city council wants to keep this quiet. There's been a rash of mysterious illnesses in the past few days, and a few cases have already proved fatal. We're not sure what this disease is, but it's quite virulent. If something isn't done soon, we'll be living in a ghost town.
We do have good evidence that the illness is connected to the Vahzilok zombies. I need you to take this scanning device and use it on any Vahzilok you see. We need all the data we can get.
Once you've defeated at least 15 of them, we should have enough data.
|This small medical device was designed by the ingenious Jonathan St. John Smythe. When placed on a subject's skin, it scans the body for any infections.|
- Scan Vahzilok for disease info
- Defeat 15 Vahzilok
You have scanned enough Vahzilok.
|This data contains information on the Vahzilok you defeated. It will be cross-referenced with previous scans to determine if these Vahzilok were carriers of the deadly new plague.|
Thanks for scanning those Vahzilok. If they were carriers of this strange new disease, this data will be invaluable.
The best minds in Paragon City are working on this data you collected from the diseased Vahzilok.
Eliminate the diseased Vahzilok and collect samples
We had people all over the city scanning Vahzilok, but you got the best results. Based on your data, we think we've discovered where the diseased zombies are coming from! No surprises here; those walking disease factories have been hanging out in the most unhygienic place they could find: the sewers. I need you to eliminate the diseased Vahzilok and collect some samples of their tissue and blood.
Get back to me as soon as you can, and watch out for a Vahzilok they call the Cutter. He's as nasty as they come.
On the way here, you passed some kids playing kick-the-can. They have no idea that the Vahzilok infection could soon be ripping through their neighborhoods like a forest fire.
- Eliminate all diseased Vahzilok
- Find disease sample
You have located pure samples of the Vahzilok disease.
|Vahzilok blood sample|
|These vials of foul-smelling, black blood should help determine the nature of the virulent Vahzilok contagion.|
- The boss name can vary. Possiblities are Cutter, Surgeon and Vivisector.
- Cutter/Surgeon/Vivisector (Vahzilok Mire Eidolon)
Great work! These samples are the disease in it's pure form. With these, we're sure to find an antidote. I'll get tests run on them immediately.
Take the diseased blood samples to Professor St. John-Smythe for final processing
I'm sorry to say this, but you've been infected with the Vahzilok virus. Now, I don't want you to panic; it's at a very early stage, and we're already hard at work on a serum. If you could take these diseased blood samples to Professor St. John-Smythe for final processing, I'm sure he could give you a shot right away.
If you start to feel woozy, whatever you do, don't go to sleep!
|Vahzilok Wasting Disease Auto: Self -Regeneration, -Recovery, -Hit Points, -Endurance|
You have been infected with the Vahzilok Wasting Disease. This disease, introduced by the Vahzilok, is slowly wasting you away. Find a cure, quick! Your maximum hit points, endurance, regeneration, and recovery have all been reduced.
- Deliver samples to the professor
Thank goodness you're here! Our labs are under attack by Vahzilok zombies, and we need your help! If that lab falls to the Vahzilok, our hopes for a cure will be ruined!
Saving the scientists is the only hope you have of curing the Vahzilok wasting disease.
- Defeat Patient Zero and minions
- 3 scientists to rescue
You have rescued the scientists and saved the labs. One of the scientists gave you a shot to cure you of the Vahzilok disease.
|One of the scientists you rescued said:
'I'm glad you got here when you did. You just missed Dr. Vahzilok himself! He found half of our supply of the serum, and left to examine it. His minions would have found the rest in a few more minutes. Here, let me give you a shot. You'll be all right soon. But I'm afraid that Dr. Vahzilok will just alter his disease to make it resistant to our cure. I guess this proves that his so-called humanitarian motives are nothing but a crock. He can't be trying to cheat death if he's spreading killer viruses around.
- Patient Zero (Vahzilok Murk Eidolon)
- 3 Scientists (Hostages)
So, Dr. Vahzilok's minions made off with some of the serum! If Dr. Vahzilok modifies his virus to resist that drug, we may not be able to step the epidemic!
Go to the sewers and incinerate every body you find
Now that Dr. Vahzilok has a sample of the antidote, it's only a matter of time before he can modify his virus and undo our work. However, I've analyzed all the data, and I think I have a very viable candidate for the ground zero of this entire outbreak. I'd like you to go down to the sewers and incinerate every body you find. If you can manage this, you'll put an end to Vahzilok's evil plague forever!
You must be careful. Dr. Vahzilok himself knows about your involvement, and may try to stop you. You'll have to judge for yourself if you'll be strong enough to fight him, or if destroying the bodies is the better answer. Maybe we can put an end to this whole thing here and now, before the rest of the city gets infected.
The hackles on the back of your neck stand on end.
- Put an end to Vahzilok plague
- 4 bodies remaining. Defeat Dr. Vahzilok (Issue 12 Patch notes)
You have put an end to the Vahzilok plague.
So, you actually came face to face with Dr. Vahzilok himself? Few people have done that and lived to tell the tale. It's interesting that he seemed to have the same goal as you: eradicating the deadly plague he had caused. I guess it's possible that Vahzilok really does care about the harm he causes.
Interrogate some Outcasts on the street / Get information from Outcasts
The Outcasts often move minor artifacts to anyone in the city interested in getting an edge. There's a rumor that they're planning a big auction of magical artifacts, but none of my sources have found anything concrete. Normally the Outcasts are big boasters; when they get quiet, I start to worry. I need someone to interrogate some of the Outcasts on the street. See if you can find out what's going on.
The last thing this city needs is more dangerous mystic items in the hands of the wrong people.
- Get information from Outcasts
- Defeat 15 Outcasts
|This is an invitation to an auction of mystic artifacts. It designates the time and place for the auction to commence.|
- Defeat auctioneer and his crew - 1:30 timed
- 4 artifacts to recover
There are villains from multiple mystic groups here, all ready to bid on relics of mystic power
- Snow-Pac (Outcasts Lead Freezer)
During the mission some of the objects you retrieve can be useful against the villains:
During the mission, the villains' delegations say the following:
Hellion 1: This is gonna be our ticket to the big time!
Hellion 2: Assuming we can win anything
Hellion 1: Hero trouble!
Tsoo 1: All of these factions, gathered in one place.
Tsoo 2: I would prefer an honorable fight to this mercantile mess.
Tsoo 1: Excellent. Battle.
Circle of Thorns 1: I am surprised that some hero has not come to defeat this gathering of evil.
Circle of Thorns 2: I'm astonished one has not shown up already
Circle of Thorns 1: How predictable! Some fervent fool of contemporary justice has arrived to stop us!
I'm glad you were able to stop this auction. The Outcasts have been putting a lot of these magic items out on the streets lately. They always seem to have a downside or a curse on them, but the Outcasts still seem to find ready buyers. I guess there are a lot of people in this city who are desperate for a little power.
Recover the tome from the Vahzilok
I've learned that an Eidolon called Hunter has stolen the Tome of Telos. She's holed up in the Yellow Rose Cosmetics office, along with a bunch of Vahzilok. There's no telling what will happen if they manage to translate that book. I need you to recover the tome from the Vahzilok. You only have 90 minutes to deal with the Vahzilok.
The Tome of Telos describes a number of powerful ceremonies. I don't want the Vahzilok performing any of them!
Sewer slime is smeared across the foyer's cheery wallpaper
- Defeat Hunter and her minions - 1:30 timed)
- 7 office workers to rescue, recover the tome
- Office worker x7 (Hostage NPC)
Thanks for saving me! Carver is insane!
- Carver/Hunter/Slicer/Filleter (Boss) (Luminous Eidolon)
Soon I will be beautiful again!
I will perform my ritual! Hero must not interfere!
|Tome of Telos|
|This tome is dedicated to the ancient god Telos. It is written in an alphabet that you have never seen before.|
- The name of the tome and the eidolon can vary. Possible tome names are Hermes, Ignis, Bion, Telos and Phobos. Possible eidolon names are Carver, Hunter, Filleter and Slicer
I've heard that the eidolons retain working brains and all the memories of their human lives. I guess the memory of being beautiful must have tortured Hunter. So she decided to regain her lost looks by performing one of the rituals described in the Tome of Telos.
It's sad, really. How could anyone trade her life, however short, for a hollow existence as one of Vahzilok's zombies?
Defeat Outcasts in Steel Canyon
The Outcasts have claimed Steel Canyon as their territory, and are terrorizing the streets. It's going to take constant heroic action to keep them from cementing their hold on the entire zone. I need a hero who can get to Steel Canyon and show them that the streets don't belong to them.
The Outcasts don't just think they're above the law, they think that they can make the laws now. If you can defeat about 20 of them, it should help to knock their egos down some. Good luck, Hero.
- Defeat Outcasts in Steel Canyon
- Defeat 20 Outcasts
Great job dealing with those Outcasts, Hero. They're going to be a problem in Steel Canyon for a long time, but you've taught them a lesson today.
Go to Faultline and stop the Vahzilok raids
I've learned that the Vahzilok have been raiding the labs and medical centers in Faultline. In the last raid, they took a number of organs that were intended for transplants. You've got to get over to Faultline and stop the Vahzilok raids.
A lot of the raids have taken place in New Overbrook. Start looking for Vahzilok around there.
- Combat Vahzilok in Faultline
- Defeat 15 Vahzilok
You have discouraged the Vahzilok from raiding Faultline's medical centers for human organs.
Thanks for putting down those Vahzilok raids. I'm sure Paragon City's medical community is as grateful as I.
Recover the Talisman of Jiang Li
We've got a problem, Hero. According to the mystics of MAGI, the Outcasts recently gor their hands on the Talisman of Jiang Li. It's a powerful artifact that gives the bearer the power to incinerate those with righteous souls. I can't think of anyone more righteous than the heroes of Paragon City! If the Outcasts figure out how to use that talisman, every hero could be in danger! You've got to recover the Talisman of Jiang Li!
- Recover Talisman of Jiang Li
- Defeat 15 Outcasts
|Talisman of Jiang Li|
|This evil talisman could easily be mistaken for a simple black pebble, were it not for the fact that it burns your hand.|
Thanks for recovering this talisman, Hero. If you hadn't acted quickly, the Outcasts might have figured out how to use it.
Hit the streets and cull the numbers of the Vahzilok
Every time the Vahzilok population increases, so does the disease rate. The hospital wards are filling up, Hero, and something has to be done. I want you to hit the streets and cull the numbers of the Vahzilok. Maybe that will get the city back on the mend.
- Stop wave of illnesses
- Defeat 15 Vahzilok
You did a good job dealing with those Vahzilok, Hero. Thanks to you, the hospitals are clearing up.
Go to Boomtown and stop the Outcasts from harassing the populace
I guess you've heard that many of the Outcasts long for the life of a superhero. Well, in Boomtown, they've started acting out their fantasies. I've heard reports of Outcasts harassing civilians for small crimes such as littering, jaywalking, and riding bikes on the sidewalk. Nobody likes a jaywalker, but this is just too much! I want you to get over to Boomtown and stop the Outcasts from harassing the populace.
I'm hearing the most reports from Grenadier and the Cannonade. You should probably start in those neighborhoods.
- Combat Outcasts in Boomtown
- Defeat 15 Outcasts
With their powers, many of the Outcasts could have found work as heroes. It's a pity that they chose a life of crime instead.
