Complete walkthrough of the investigation quest Angels and Demons in Egypt in The Secret World.
Tier 1: Locate and enter the Plethron Office
Your first step in this investigation mission is to read the Plethron sign(giant thing on the side of a building, you can’t miss it) in order to find out more about the firm. From the sign, you gather the location of their office. Great. Now you need to head over there and get in.
Tier 2: Inspect the office to find out more about Plethron
When you enter the building you’ll see an unfortunate soul dead in the corner. Inspect his body to look at his ID Card.
The hint reads
My surname is common in classic literature. And my clearance level is the key.
A quick google search of classical literature and Gold-Bug led me to a work by Edgar Allan Poe titled “The Gold Bug”. The Gold Bug is about a treasure hunt that revolves around a cipher (code encryption/decryption device). I looked up the cypher and found the following website: http://rumkin.com/tools/cipher/substitution.php
At the website, I chose the method of encoding to be Text: Gold Bug. Glass is the message to decode. It outputs 305)), which is going to be the password for the computer.
-On a personal note, I love these investigation quests… So much!-
Tier 3: Locate Warehouse, Access Surveillance footage and Access the Crate
Now it’s time to head to a warehouse. Luckily, it’s marked on your map. So head there for the next part.
Access the security footage and watch a short clip of someone accessing a crate. Here is where I found out exactly how tone deaf I am. Took me forever to figure it out. It’s exactly like pushing keys on a telephone. Each number has it’s own tone. You need to match the code from the clip in order to access the crate. You have unlimited tries, but it does kick you off after you get so many wrong in a row. If that happens don’t panic, just touch the crate again and it will let you try again.
Congratulations, you’re now finished with the Angels and Demons Investigation quest in Egypt.
