Progress

We need to get to the bottom of all this before Lord Stormsong goes on the offensive!

Completion

A cipher? Of course! But by the great sea, what's it covered in?!

Notes

While on the way to the Brineworks for A [110 - 120] Rearmament and A [110 - 120] Fabricated Fabrications, locate the corpse of Chief Architect Wilson just outside of town. He's holding a Charred Note which starts this quest.

Inside town, loot a dozen Stormfused Weapons, kill Shipwright Turncoats, Brinebrawn Cannoneers, and Stormfused Strikesmiths for a  [Warship Blueprint] or eight, and find and defeat Tideguard Pontus for the  [Architect's Cipher].

Watch out for the rare elite Reinforced Hullbreaker patrolling town. It is fixed at level 122 with 1.6 million health. However, there is a standard rare elemental on top of the hill just outside of town, Galestorm. There's also a corrupted pod of dolphins in the river just north of town, comprised of a Corrupted Tideskipper and three Juvenile Tideskippers.

Aggro:

Tideguard Pontus says: All who fail to obey must be culled!

At 75%, he sheds his disguise:

Tideguard Pontus says: I am blind no longer.
Tideguard Pontus says: Gaze upon the shadow of your demise.

Death:

Tideguard Pontus says: They await... in the depths...
