Added page[edit]

To the best of my very limited abilities. Briareus 02:51, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

All the wild editing was to add my signature, as I 3 times. Briareus 02:52, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Res Shrine?[edit]

Should there not be a res shrine right outside Gates of Kryta? It shows one on mini map but it wasn't there. We went out three times and it wasn't there any of them. Em Jae 04:02, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Should be. You get 2 shots and that’s it. After a second wipe, your party returns to Gates of Kryta regardless of DP. Sardaukar User Sardaukar sig.png 04:25, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
True. He sends you to CTU or something. --talk Large 16:55, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Jade Bows[edit]

Don't appear to spawn in NM, rezoned several times and never saw any. Are they only HM, and is this the case with all of the areas? Briareus 04:08, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Scratch that. One spawned by Bauer after 4 times. Briareus 04:08, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
Not very nice to have Jade Bows when the henchmen you take with from Lion's Arch are not infused. -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 11:49, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
True-especially in Hard Mode.--Burning Freebies 14:08, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Way too OP[edit]

Seriously, an instant cast for all spells and he's with a jade cloak, who has Sandstorm and Churning Earth? Plus a bunch of resses? This entire group is way too OP and needs nerfed badly. Tender WolfUser Tender Wolf sig.png 17:50, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

It wasn't too bad with a full team of people, but henchmen should be infused if you're going to be facing foes with Spectral Agony. I'd like H&H to still be viable for these quests. Sardaukar User Sardaukar sig.png 19:39, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
I can recommend a minion master and spirit spammer, the meat shield/increased damage output makes H/H doable (Aura of the Lich works nicely in combination with the stack of dead mergoyle), though you still have to have some luck in spawns. Certain combinations of foes are just too much, for a 6 man team. Twam Valandil 19:57, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
When suggesting minions to deal with shouts instead of vocal minority, you remind me of someone who urged people to use "there's nothing to fear" against aaxtes. Are you the same person ? Yseron - 22:23, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
Most certainly not :p Nah, as far as I'm concerned Bauer isn't the problem so much as the Jade constructs and some of mantle builds surrounding him. The amount of raw damage they deal makes it tricky to deal with the entire group at a time; not Bauers shouts. As a matter of fact, "there's not enough time" was more of a buff to my party than to his allies, I suspect. I merely suggested the cannon fodder as a means to make sure you have ample time to take out the jade, rits and savants. Twam Valandil 22:32, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
K, note is taken that you werent commenting on "Seriously, an instant cast for all spells and he's with a jade cloak, who has Sandstorm and Churning Earth?". Yseron - 22:44, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
stop whining, jesus christ.
I had very little trouble, but I was able to separate a single jade bow before taking out his group. This was HM, myself as warrior imbagon, H&H with original sabway, fire henchy, and Olesia.-- 22:47, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
You made me curious so i tried the wanted:bauer quest in nm to see what it was all about. Sabway is all but mandatory. Gwen and 25 seconds did suffice for our 4 men (1+3heros) team. Yseron - 23:48, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
Its not so bad if the Jade Constructs don't immediately go for the henchmen. They probably will if you rune or otherwise equip your heroes though beyond their defaults. Though it doesn't really matter, you just have to fight through a WM group and kill Bauer to finish the quest. 00:05, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
1 MM, 1 Spirit Spammer, 1 Healer, One Meatbag warrior (me) Done it with little help from the hench first time.--Neil2250 , Portal Jumper User Neil2250 sig icon6.png 00:09, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
1 MM ? 1 spirit spammer ? Henchs ? I begin to think that people will soon use a super star destroyer. Yseron - 00:17, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
Cause in PvE everything must be way too easy right? InfestedHydralisk 14:51, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
I think I agree with Tender wolf. I've been beating my head against this mission for the last hour, trying different party types, but that shout he uses and his group makeup just make it almost impossible (unless you get lucky) to beat him. I don't have factions, so I can't utilize ritualists, but even then if you really need a Rt to beat this guy than this mission is broken. That is all I have to say. Talk about making PvE too easy all you want, but if you 'need' a certain class, then it is not the PvE that is too hard... Btw, I recommend zoning in and out until you get a makeup that doesn't have the cloaks in it; I have the most problems with them.EvianaMist, 19:35, 25 September 2011
Try this team build. Replace the rit with the RoJ in the eight-member crew. Or some sort of nuker, e.g. Searing Flames + Meteor + etc. I'm sure that some of the skills are Factions-only, but you should be able to find suitable replacements. Also try this guy's suggestions.
Incidentally, the Beyond content tends to assume that you have access to all three campaigns. I wouldn't argue that Rits are required (I've been on plenty of teams that don't use them at all), but I fear that choosing to do without them is an unnecessary handicap, especially for some of the other quests. – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 01:10, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
I managed to get it done after a dozen and then some tries, just by luck alone. If you can get both Jade down without too much death penalty from your team, than the other 3 aren't too bad. The most dangerous foe with this guy is the Jade Cloaks. With his shout, and their churning earth, you will be ripped to pieces in a matter of seconds. This guy really is nuts in HM. And I'm sure if you had a wall of spirits, this would be a cinch (Thanks for the suggestions as well) - EvianaMist 21:00, 25 September 2011
I completed it first try in HM with 5 heros and had no problems. I was using an ER build. Random Weird Guy 18:53, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Pain Inverter works very well as it does with all enemies who either attack really fast or who deal strong AoE damage. In HM I took a Discordway team with Xandra, Razah, and me (W/R). Drop PI on the Jade Cloak if it spawns. Use it on Bauer as well. Careful pulling to avoid overaggroing is a must. Good hunting. Cyryl Chevalier 23:44, 29 March 2012 (UTC)


The previous dialogues are not needed to complete this quest. I hadn't even heard of the guy before today, I certainly hadn't encountered him.Dakota 20:13, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

I think you may have inadvertently seen him interrogating Farmer Dirk and then Camryn Jamison as both dialogues are required before a character can find Inquisitor Bauer and his reinforcements in Scoundrel's Rise (War in Kryta) and kill him for this bounty. Bearz User Bearz pawprint.png 21:48, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
nope... I have not seen the previous dialogs and he spawns with quest... Got War in K content with Zinns Trial and 3 visits to the war camp... MrPaladin talk 11:11, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

How to defeat in HM[edit]

I've managed to kill this guy with standard Discord + Orion+ Alesia. I went after Lashona first so I was able to cap the res shrine, next to the portal which is on the left side of Scounder's Rise. Anyways, don't fight any groups, other than Bauer coz they WTFOWN! I slipped pass the other groups, hugging the left wall and was albe to get Bauer's group. He took me down once coz I got consued, after he used his shout :/ The 2nd time he was all MINE! Did it in HM and I wasn't even INFUSED 0_0 --Monolito 19:18, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, worked well. 22:04, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

One other way to kill him in HM with H/H. Bring your standard HM Hero complement (although Minion Masters and Spirit Wranglers are highly recommended to provide extra targets for the Jade constructs' Spectral Agony), and the two henchies of your choice (I brought Alesia and Reyna). Kill the groups of Mergoyles and White Mantle on your way to Bauer, then pull Bauer's group to your position (it's much too easy to draw aggro from the other WM groups near him if you fight him in his starting position). Now just concentrate fire on Bauer; ignore all of his minions and Jades (hopefully this is where your minions and spirits will provide a useful distraction). Bauer himself isn't that tough and doesn't have much in the way of defenses or self-heals. As long as there isn't a healer in his group (and there usually isn't. His group consists of 1 Jade construct, 1 Peacekeeper Enforcer, 1 Peacekeeper Marksman and 1 more random enemy), he'll go down fast. As long as he dies, the quest is complete, and wiping against his group afterwards isn't an issue. - Zaxares 12:02, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

bauer should be tougher to kill[edit]

i dont understand 19:33, 1 June 2010 (UTC)


Whenever I try to find Bauer in HM, his group doesn't spawn. I'm the party leader, I have the quest, and am taking some guild mates with me who haven't seen his other dialouge, but that shouldn't matter, right? Everytime I zone in from another portal other than Gates of Kryta, it still doesn't spawn him. Any idea what's going on? Carious the Bear 06:23, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Stupid questions: Did all of your guild mates complete the requirements to enter the War in Kryta zones? Even one without the requirements (Completed Eye or Prophecies) will ruin this. Beyond that I don't know if there is another requirement that all members of the same party must share. I do know that not having the quest does not cause him to fail spawning for this quest. I have also never seen what you are experiencing. Kyubiko 06:52, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
Well I know one of them has not completed Prophecies or EotN on that character (most of them are from Factions anyways), so that might be it. Other than that, that's the only thing preventing me from doing this I guess. Thanks. Carious the Bear 19:00, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Possible reference[edit]

Isn't his name just a reference to Jack Bauer from the TV series 24?--Burning Freebies 10:49, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

I recommend to look on the actual NPC page. InfestedHydralisk 13:55, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
Pretty sure it is, all his quotes make it seem like they're trying to make a reference to him. 17:08, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Bounty recurrence[edit]

i seriously want this to come up again for the bounty because i want to take my warr (i'm too lazy to do war in kryta stuff with my other chars) bring staff and mod one of my armor sets for energy and just spam flare while under there's not enough time. instant cast, no recharge. of course i'd be doing this in NM though because doing that would be a horrible idea in HM. Daeheru 21:25, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

The three Inquisitor bounties are tied to the main quests from Salma, so I doubt they will be repeated.--User Pyron Sy sig.png Pyron Sy 21:41, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
Ya i expected that they wouldn't be repeated because of that too. Would still be nice though. Daeheru 22:04, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

has anyone tried this?[edit]

Particularly in HM. Fighting this son of a bitch by going from Temple of the Ages and take a long trip all the way to his location. I think that would have helped GREATLY. --Dark Paladin X 04:53, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

I think wasting 10 minutes to build a better team to fight him in 5 minutes is easier than wasting 30 minutes to cross 4 zones just to face him with a bigger party.--SharkinuUser Sharkinu sig.png 06:56, 15 July 2010 (UTC)


I have access to LAK but I don't get the quests offered. Is it because I have the stupid new "The War in Kryta" Quest activated? I can't abandon it. Please tell me that I don't have to do the stupid "Ebon Vanguard Allies" Quest. 18:33, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure that is the case. It's not like it's hard to do that though, just takes a bit of time. --Gammastar 03:08, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
