      1. Tyler's Questline Completed: 2. Protect the People 2 (Lv. 240)

      Hey, how goes it? Name's Ethan, but I gathered you know that already given how you spoke with Tyler already. He wasn't too much of an arse with you was he? He tends to act touchy with new guys but he warms up to them eventually.

      Anyway, as for why you're here, specialization, right? Well, before anyone gets started, we need to do a small introduction, nothing major, just so we know you're ready for it. After all, we only want the best of the best here, no point wasting our time training someone who's gonna become zombie food 5 minutes later.

      Though from what I've heard of you, its possible you'll be the one who's doing the eating. I kid, I kid, I'm not as paranoid as Tyler is, don't worry, you seem an alright person with me. Get these tasks done, then I'll send the word to Tyler to grant permission to the special training options we have.

      Quest Tasks:
      1. Finish 20 maps from start to end on Advanced/Expert difficulty
      2. Help 300 others finish a map from start to end on Advanced/Expert difficulty
      3. Deal at least 10K damage to T1+ tanks 30 times

        5. <Daily> Summit (Lv. 245)

      Solid work. I'll be speaking with Tyler in a bit. We have several different specializations available for you to choose from. You can use that Training Kit Tyler gave you to make your choice post-training as well as to gain information on what each specialization gives.

      Once you pick one, that specialization will start out fairly basic, but as you gain more experience with it active, you gain access to more and stronger effects. Once you reach max experience for that spec, you need to spend some cash, FR-Pills, and some excess items to level it up further. It's the cost we need for improved training. Sorry, but we gotta maintain our squad somehow.

      Whenever you're ready, come to either one of us to being training. Take care.

    5. 5. <Daily> Summit (Lv. 245)

      Quest Prerequisites:
      1. 1. Specialization - Primer (Lv. 240)
      2. If this quest was completed yesterday, it can be retaken again only on specific days.

      Hey, how you holding up? Hope the specialization training is working out for you, assuming you've made your mind up about it yet, but this isn't related to that.

      I'm sure you remember Sara mentioning something about a 'Voice' to you, right? The same voice that got Tyler all in a tizzy about you. Well, I've been doing some investigation into the source of this voice. Sadly, I haven't found anything concrete yet, but I do have a lead into something.

      There are some strange transmissions being sent from a mountain summit not far from here. I tried sending a squad there earlier to intercept but just when they had finished collecting the data, some 'stone looking monster' supposedly ambushed them. In their panic to escape they dropped the data drive and it fell down the side of the mountain. Safe to say we aren't getting that back any time soon.

      And this is where you come in, judging by what I've heard about you before, and what you've done for us recently, I think it's safe to say you and your squad are more than capable of handling this. Gather the data from the transmissions, and while you're there, take care of that monster that spooked my squad.

      Oh, and one more thing. I sadly don't have any spare Data Drives left, the one that fell by the mountain side was my last one. These things aren't too common nowadays so if you happen to find one, let me know and we can get started.

      Before the Scenario is started:
      Ethan: So, down at the base of the mountain should be a terminal.
      Ethan: Go there, plug in that data drive and startup the connection to the trackers.
      Ethan: It'll take some time for the connection to initialize, so be patient.

      When the Scenario starts:
      Ethan: That's it, now just give it a sec.
      Ethan: Bah, figures, the infected!
      Ethan: Never mind them, there should be 4 signal trackers in the area.
      Ethan: Find them, start them up, and keep an eye on them.
      Ethan: My squad informed me that they break down often so check on them periodically.

      When any of the 4 trackers break down:
      Ethan: The X tracker has jammed!

      When all the trackers are done: OLD
      Ethan: That's all of them! Get back to the terminal when you can to retrieve the data.
      Ethan: But be careful, this was the point my squad got ambushed by that... thing.
      Ethan: Watch each other's backs.

      When Craggy Tank Spawns:
      [PR] The Craggy Tank has appeared!
      Ethan: There it is! Take it out!

      When Craggy Tank is defeated:
      [PR] [Scenario cleared - Returning to hideout in 120s!]
      Ethan: Outstanding work. To say I'm impressed would be putting it lightly.

      Quest Tasks:
      1. (Must be done on the Scenario server on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays or Sundays)
        (Requires a Data Drive)
        Complete the "Summit" Scenario

      Quest Rewards:
      • Exp: 5,000,000 Exp
      • Becomes a Repeatable Quest on specific days

      Splendid work, I'll see if I can decypher anything meaningful from this, and thanks for taking care of that fiend as well. If anything comes from this, or I have more to do, I'll be sure to let you know. Until next time.
