Located in the northern center of Concordia Divide, Foreas base is the most pivotal location on the planet providing the main headquarters of AFS Command for Forean operations. This area will serve as a hub not only for a number of missions, but for transport between areas and even to the less than hospitable planet of Areaki. Most missions will be well suited to players above level 11 and will them to a variety of locations including Timora Mines, Torcastra Prison, the Hydroelectric Plant, and more.

Getting to Foreas Base really isn't too painful of a journey from Concordia Wilderness. You'll take the cave just east of Twin Pillars and follow the road past the Northwestern Heights and through the Forean village of Nidu Dav. Following the sounds of combat as Foreas is usually repelling attackers on a regular basis. Within the walls you'll probably want to begin your missions in the central command building, the medical facility, or the tavern.

  • Top Secret Salvage - This mission begins with Field Doctor Dawson in the medical facility around 18.1, 116.9, 532.7. Dawson wants you to head out to the wreckage of a downed scout ship outside Foreas base and retrieve some vital research data (which turns out to be a Bane translator prototype). If you proceed out the east gate and start walking south it'd be hard to miss the flaming wreckage around 113.7, 105.5, 241.8. Harvest the crate there and return to Dawson for 1100 credits and your choice of Class II Basic Medpack or Class II EMP bomb.
  • Behind Closed Doors - This mission requires the completion of Top Secret Salvage. Dawson has a further assignment for you, to take this Bane translator down to Agent Franz in the holding area. The Jailhouse is on the eastern side just south of the tavern. When you go inside you'll go straight back to a teleporter which will take you underground. Franz is straight ahead on a platform around 107.8, 59.0, 445.4. Your reward will be a choice of a Class II Standard Medpack or Class II Concussion Grenade.

  • Care and Feeding of Prisoners - This mission requires the completion of Behind Closed Doors. Franz sends you to speak with Medic Campbell who is right behind him. Campbell wants you to retrieve 5 Bane nutrients for the prisoner out on the battlefield. These nutrients spawn as crates at 2 different crash site locations: (-5.6, 83.5, 130.2), and (-88.0, 98.4, 89.5). Expect one to have Bane near it and the other lots of Xanx. Return to the prison and face an ethical parable. Franz would like to starve the prisoner a little to make him more cooperative. So you can either hand over the goods to Franz or head upstairs and speak with the Bane yourself. You will end up with the same missions either way. Your reward will be 1800 credits and a choice of Teleract Motor Assist Armor Gloves or a Vextronics Pistol.
  • The Secrets you Keep - This mission requires the completion of Care and Feeding of Prisoners. It will begin with Agent Franz assuming you helped him. Apparently there is unauthorized prisoner exchange. You'll need to locate Agent Cicely to the west and find out exactly what is going on. You'll find her around -683.3, 159.5, 589.7 just to the south of the Northwestern Highlands teleporter. Of course, it's a trap and you'll be ambushed by groups of Bane. Help Cicely fend them off, get your update and return to Franz for your choice of Wellcare Motor Assist Armor Gloves or a Wellcare Motor Assist Armor Helmet.
  • Shoot the Messenger - Nothing like a good assassination to make you feel morally upstanding. This mission requires the completion of The Secrets you Keep.Another Thrax Conscript has something of value, so you'll need to find them and take it. Unfortunately all you have is a partial name of "Naaa" so good luck. His location is hard to pin down as he does patrol the Bane base to the south. He's very noticeable when you do see him and he currently spawns frequently enough a few circles around the base should locate him. When he is dead return to Franz for your choice of Prodigy Hazmat Armor Helmet or Prodigy Reflective Armor Helmet .
  • Encroaching on Thoria Das - If you decided to speak with the Bane this is the mission you'll get upstairs in the prison. He wants you to destroy some terraform kits the Bane are airlifting in. You'll find them to the northeast around 377.8, 851.8 near the Xanx area. When you have destroyed enough return to Conscript Thull for your reward of 1950 credits and a choice of a Vextronics Virulent Leech Gun or a Teleract Motor Assist Armor Vest.
  • Message in a Bottle - This mission begins with Conscript Thall in the AFS Foreas prison around 115.9, 62.9, 441.9 and requires the completion of Encroaching on Thoria Das. This mission is very straightforward, all you have to do is deliver a message... to a Bane inside the enemy base. Find Conscript Favale in the Bane base on the western side around 222.6, 116.9, -633.0. Return to Thall for 3000 credits and your choice of Wellcare Stealth Armor Boots, Pathogex Hazmat Armor Gloves or a Vextronics Rocket Launcher.

 

  • Ammo Express - Lt. Sebasitan (-47.5, 119.4, 438.7)would like you to report to Field Sergeant Hayes at the Crossroads to deliver ammunition.

McMurray at 107.2, 108.6, 196.9 and finally to Line Captain Dubbs in Thoria Das around 306.6, 168.0, 1061.2 but he does wander a little. Return to Lt. Sebastian for your choice of a Vitaliua Shotgun or Vitalius Pistol.
  • Makin' Bacon - Base Guard Wilding in the Tavern around 55.6, 124.5, 542.0 has a craving for some bacon. He wants Boargar hides to try and make some and guess who is going to get it? That's right. Head out the east gate and south past the flaming wreckage to find tons of them running around. Once you've gathered enough for him head back for your choice of Luminar Hazmat Gloves and a Vextronics Laser Pistol.
  • Bane Battle Plans - This quest begins with Lt. Sebastian at -47.5, 119.4, 438.7 in the command center. He wants you to retrieve some battle plans from a few bane.
