Shortcuts to Bane Base in Marshes
« on: December 16, 2007, 05:57:45 AM »
There is the shortcut that most people know of in the Research Station CP that teleports you and your squad to just outside the Logos Research Center.  However, there is a hidden teleporter that goes to the Strider Bay and Bane Supply Depot.  The shortcut is mentioned in the Production Destruction mission.  This hidden teleporter is located in the building west of the Retread City Arena or northwest of the Retread City waypoint.

I thought my directions were rather clear to find the two teleporters.  The one in the Research Station is an AFS teleporter and is displayed on the map and the one in the Retread City is a bane teleporter.   These two teleporters allow you to avoid the large amounts of bane between Paludos and the bane force field and doesn't require you to destroy the bane force field.  These teleporters are useless until level 35 when there a couple of missions there.  Also, the evil logos is in the region of the teleport destination of the retread city teleporter.

The bane teleporter is inside the building near the retread arena and is only useable if you take the choice to help the retreads.

I repeat: DO NOT RAT THEM OUT!

You will learn the hard way that getting into the depot by force is not that easy (depending on level and class ofc).

If you team with someone that didn't rat out the retreads, then they can use a portable waypoint so you can bypass all the bane.

I thought the waypoint had to be activated from spawn to destination before using it from the other end?

I agree. The group versions really loose a lot of value right now. Or maybe that make it so the most expensive types can get you through without activation from the other end.

just for clarification:

group waypoints may now accessed from any other (regular) waypoint on the same map (Patch 1.5 iirc)

the info in these posts regarding group WP refers to pre-1.5
