For the first one the answer is the sum of the digits squares.
52 = 25

22+52 = 4+25 = 29
22+92 = 4+81 = 85
82+52 = 64+25 = 89
82+92 = 64+81 = 145For second one the logic is like so
1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 28, 36, 45, ___
1+2 = 3
3+3 = 6
6+4 =10
10+5 = 15
15 + 6 = 21
21 + 7 = 28
28 + 8 = 36
36 + 9 = 45
45+10 = 55

• Surprisingly, for the first one, I just looked at the numbers and did the most logical thing that came to mind and it worked!

Your explanation of the 2nd is much clearer to people for sure!

Thanks for the correction!

• infinityc0r3

Actully the logic is even more simple than that. if you look at the numbers they are all multiples of prime numbers
1 is a multiple of 1
3,6 are multiples of 3
10,15 are multiples of 5
21,28 are multiples of 7
36.45 are multiples of 9
following this logic the next set of numbers has to be multiples of the next prime number which is 11 which makes the next two numbers in the set 55,66 respectively

Thank you so much for this walkthrough. I don’t normally use such things but because I’m a complete maths dummy you saved me a lot of time.

• Ben

@Aedile and OP:
Another take on second puzzle!

Thanks for full details on first. Interestingly, I followed a completely different approach on forth puzzle than presented here: Solution presented itself under assumption there was a single digit typo in series. (Not unheard of, e.g. after Tier 1 Hell and Bach’s Latin… 😉

Great quests, people should come here only AFTER solving them. :o)

• Ben

… there should’ve been a picture attached to that… next try.

Oh, and if you have some contact w/ command line gnu/linux, all the stuff they show you when you repeatedly hit 1) makes sense, and describes what is happening! Very cool, Funcom. 🙂

• Anyone have an update to the numbers you need for Tier 2? Seeing as how you actually need the codes now, would be nice to see this guide updated.

• Best we can do is try to get new characters to re-run the mission, unless somebody else reports or reposts updates. Is the problem with MMOs.. The companies keep changing the content on us 🙂 Since this guide is months old, and is not our new better guide format, maybe we should get a redo of some of the early investigation missions on the to-do list.

• Kirt_L

The numbers needed are the same as in the screenshots above, but you need to type them in now. Just did this mission.

For anyone who’s interested in the non-1-spam route for tiers 2 and 3, here’s the idea behind those puzzles.

TIER 2

Puzzle 1:

42 66 70 78 102 105

Each of these numbers is a multiple of three primes, in increasing order (of the product, not the primes):

42 = 2*3*7
66 = 2*3*11
70 = 2*5*7
78 = 2*3*13
102 = 2*3*17
105 = 3*5*7

The next smallest number which is the multiple of three primes is 2*5*11 = 110

Puzzle 2:

2 3 3 5 10 13 39 43 172 177

This one is neat it alternates between adding a number, then multiplying it, and then increasing the number and starting over. So:

3 = 2 + 1
3 = 3 * 1
5 = 3 + 2
10 = 5 * 2
13 = 10 + 3
39 = 13 * 3
43 = 39 + 4
172 = 43 * 4
177 = 172 + 5

Thus the next number is 885 = 177 * 5

Puzzle 3:

13 17 31 37 71 73 79 97 107

Each of the numbers in this list is prime. In addition, the reverse of those numbers is both prime and a different number (thus 11 isn’t on the list, for instance). In fact, this is a complete list of such numbers (up to 107, obviously).

The next such number is 113.

Puzzle 4:

377 610 987 1597

This is a well-known sequence, it’s just further along than normal. It’s the Fibonacci Sequence where:

f_(n+2) = f_(n+1) + f_n, with f_0 = 0 and f_1 = 1.

Thus:

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597,
2584, 4181, 6765, 10946, 17711, 28657, 46368, 75025, 121393, 196418,
317811

So, for our purposes, the answer is 2584.

TIER 3

If you select 2 (Key extraction system) instead of 1 you’re given a page that reads:

Abstract logic engaged. Pass phrase encryption identified.

If you then type hint, you get a page reading:

rescrambling…

New phrase generate – “light rings them unborn”

100% probability that first word of phrase exists in decryption phrase.

Enter passphrase:

You can then enter “The Morning Light Burns” as the password. I’m not sure WHY that’s the password (I got it from the flavour text in the command line version), but there you go.

• Thojira

This is a phrase who comes from your first faction mission. Its written on the wall near dead bodies.

• Keosu

Up in Flames (side mission 995,732) is also missing from the Blue Mountain zone.

• Brian

To solve these, I recommend the Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences at oeis.org

• Arcslayer

Another missing mission not listed below.
A Delivery for the Departed

• toafarmer

Just for a fast reference:

1st terminal: 145 – 55 – 11011000 – 21322314
2nd terminal: 110 – 885 – 113 – 2584
3rd terminal: all answers are “1”

Note: after the 2nd terminal, the fastest way to reach the X is gettin caught by an orochi or security cam. You will spawn right next to it.
