After starting the quest, go to Kamnegrad in Yarilo VI and talk to Julian, who is located near Natasha's clinic.
Find Hook in the Big Mine
After the end of the conversation, head to the Big Mine to find Hook.
Tip: You can teleport to the Rogue Hideout Space Anchor to avoid wasting time walking through the huge mine.
Find Hook in the Rogue Hideout in the Big Mine. Once you get to it, you will see how Hook and Fersman are having a heated argument about something with two vagrants.
Approach Hook and get ready for a fight during which you will need to defeat the rogues.
Find out about Fersman's well-being from Natasha at the clinic
Talk to Fersman after the battle is over. Follow him back to Natasha's clinic in Kamnegrad, after which you will have a conversation with Hook, Fersman and Natasha.
Hook has business with you, find her and ask
Once the conversation is over, exit the clinic and talk to Hook about the stolen Geo Essence Deposit Detector.
Meet Hook at the Big Mine
Return to the Rogue Hideout in the Big Mine. Talk to Hook and Sveta at the tents.
Talk to the suspects
After learning all the details of the crime, proceed to the interrogation of four suspects in the Vault of the Rogues, including:
- Cook (stole the detector);
- Dressmaker (innocent);
- Assistant (innocent);
- Trader (innocent).
After you have spoken to all four characters, you will automatically return to the Light. She will summarize your findings and ask you to name the main suspect. The chef committed the crime, so you need to choose him.
Note: Even if you make the wrong choice, it will not affect the outcome of the quest in any way. In this case, a few additional steps will simply appear in the task.
Investigate the place where the ore detector went missing
If you accuse the wrong person, then you will have to continue the investigation. Investigate Fresman's tent in the Rogue's Hideout, and then follow the quest marker nearby.
Find the boxes according to the information on the tags
Compare the label found in the tent with the label on the crate to progress the quest further.
Follow Hook and interrogate the suspect
If you decide to blame the cook, you will find that he has left his tent. Find Sampo at the entrance to the Big Mine and see the chef trying to sell him the stolen Geo Essence Deposit Detector.
Defeat the chef in combat and take the detector from him.
Ask Balaway in Kamnegrad
Heed Sampo's advice and take the broken detector back to Kamnegrad. Find Balaway and ask him to evaluate the detector.
Go back to the clinic and tell Fersman what happened.
Return to Fresman at Natasha's clinic. Tell him what you and Hook have been up to all this time. This completes the companion's mission.
Who stole Mr. Fersman's detector
There are four suspects in this case: a cook, a merchant, a dressmaker and an assistant. You need to talk to each of them in order to collect evidence that will help you in the investigation of the case:
- Cook said the assistant did it. According to the cook, he saw how the assistant entered Mr. Fersman's tent, and then left with a box in his hands.
- Portnia behaves calmly enough and claims that she did not steal anything and never saw Mr. Fersman's detector.
- Assistant insists that he did not commit the theft.
- In exchange for a small fee dealer will share with you the information that the cook actually stole the detector.
Thus, by interviewing all the suspects, you will establish the identity of the thief who stole Mr. Fersman's detector. They will be the chef. Having figured this out, return to him and talk to the cook again to get him to confess to the theft.
What happens if you blame the wrong person?
If you choose the wrong suspect, the quest will not end there. Instead, you will have to go through an additional stage of investigation in order to identify the thief. However, this will not affect the final results of the quest in any way.
