Do Ephram Sha and Maharaj offer the same missions?
« on: March 15, 2012, 11:54:20 AM »
Can anyone hazard a guess if Ephram Sha and Maharaj  offer the same missions (word for word)? I suspect they may, would like to know before entering some in mission name spaces.

For the time being maybe record on the respective pages, and move them to the mission space once we know?

(SOURCE in "Mission:SOURCE - NAME" would be Common if shared, or their names if not, according to Mission articles].

I can confirm that their missions are in fact quite different. None of them even share the same objectives with the same enemy groups.

They each have 8 missions. The missions are always paired with the same partner-mission, so, they each have 4 pairs of missions that they offer. This is good to know if you want to speed run them for the end-reward table since you can choose the easier of the two each time, or, even accept one of a pair that you don't want and then immediately abandon it in order to hope to get a different pair. All the mission are all stealthable and I've been able to get my time for running them down to under 90 seconds.

So, with travel time, that's a mission every 2 minutes. That's why the 5 Reward Merit is getting a cool-down.  ;D

The following are the paired missions and their objectives and my best time in seconds:

Ephram Sha:

   1. Good Intentions: kill the spawn near 3 civilians, 75 seconds.
   2. Ritual Knives: click 3 glowies and kill ambush, 75 sconds.

   1. A Shelter in the Storm: kill the spawn near 5 wards, 125 seconds.
   2. Thinning the Herd: kill 3 'boss' spawns, 80 seconds

   1. Prying Eyes: lead escort to objective, kill 3 ambushes, 220 seconds
   2. Enemy of My Enemy: kill spawn near 3 NPCs, 65 seconds

   1. Blade of Another Name: kill end-room 'boss' spawn, 30 seconds
   2. Ancient Souls: destroy object, kill ambush, 60 seconds.


Maharaj:

   1. A Little Less Fame: kill end-room 'boss' spawn, 45 seconds
   2. Death's Toys: click 3 glowies, kill ambush, 80 seconds

   1. Armor of the Soul: escort to door, 85 seconds
   2. Death Magic: lead escort (who can be recaptured by foes) to target, kill ambush, 165 seconds

   1. Allies and Anchors: kill the spawn near 3 anchors, 90 seconds
   2. Culling the Competition: kill three spawns, 120 seconds

   1. To Catch a {character name here}: destroy object and spawn, kill ambush, 90 seconds
   2. Two Birds: kill spawn near 4 Tsoo, then go back and kill the 4 Tsoo, 195 seconds


Sorry, I don't have any mission text captures.

Do any of the repeatable missions have CoT as the enemy?

They're also downsizing it to 2 Reward Merits (or 1 if the 20 hour cooldown hasn't expired).
Where are we going, and why am I in this hand basket?
