MEA Journal - Kadara
A rival smuggler named Zia Cordier has stolen cargo from Reyes Vidal. Hoping to retrieve the cargo before his client discovers it's missing, Reyes asks you to help him locate Zia.

Acquisition Edit

Prerequisite: Murder in Kadara Port

Visit Reyes in his room at the Tartarus in Kadara Slums (marked with aMEA New Mission Map Icon) after the previous mission.

Walkthrough Edit

Meet Reyes at Kralla's Song Edit

Meet with Reyes at Kralla's Song in Kadara Port. It turns out that Zia is Reyes' ex. Umi Henon, the bartender, says she overheard a conversation where Zia will meet someone at Spirits' Ledge. Reyes will follow up a Collective lead, while your next move is to investigate Spirits' Ledge.

Go to the meeting spot at Spirits' Ledge Edit

Head to the navpoint MEA Tracked Objective Map Icon which is southeast of Kadara Port in the Spirits' Ledge region. No one is here. Maybe the meeting is over.

Search for all signs of Zia's meeting Edit

Located on a rock there is what appears to be something looking like a door. Something might be hidden inside. SAM says there might me a control for the door nearby. Use the scanner to follow the cable to a console. Use it and go back to the door.

Examine dead drop Edit

A datapad is located behind the now opened door and nothing else. It's a navpoint. Reyes speculates that it's probably the location of the cargo that Zia left here for the buyer. This complicated arrangement is to avoid Sloane Kelly getting a cut from the deal.

Meet Reyes at the navpoint Edit

Head to the Haarfel region (east of the Forward Station). The building is empty. It was a setup by Zia to trick Reyes into coming. She accuses him for having taken all the good deals in Kadara, so now the smugglers have ganged together to stop him.

Note: If there are any enemies outside the building, Reyes will not start the conversation. This usually happens with random wildlife spawning outside the building. Kill any nearby enemies and the mission will continue.

Defeat smugglers Edit

Defeat the smugglers and the mission completes.

Speak with Reyes before leaving the building.

Before leaving, there is an Angaran Integrated Tech Node inside the building (at the top of the stairs) that can be scanned for +100 Rd icon heleus orange. Outside, on top of the building, is Adapted Initiative Tech Core that can also be scanned for +100 Rd icon milkyway orange.
