|Location:||Monarch - Stellar Bay|
|How to Start:||Talk to Sebastian Adams|
East of the MSI building where Sanjar resides (and Zeng Shuren’s shop, for that matter) you’ll find Sebastian Adams, who will sell you various beastie bits from mantisaurs and raptidons. He’s also keen on talking about the wildlife he hunts, and after bringing up Mantiqueens he’ll muse about one Mr. Pickett, who went out looking for these apex predators some while ago and hasn’t been seen since. He’ll tell you where to find these royal bugs if you agree to keep an eye out for Mr. Pickett, starting this quest.
From a player’s perspective, this may be one of the busier quests out of Stellar Bay, as it requires you to travel far to the south of Stellar Bay and search for Mr. Pickett in a spot where mantids are especially active - a valley to the east of Fallbrook. If you simply run or sneak past every foe along the way, it’ll significantly shorten this quest, as the majority of it really is just traveling and fighting. Easy to say, more tedious to do.
When you arrive at the marked location, instead of Mr. Pickett you’ll find a sleeping Mantiqueen. Kill the bug and search the remains to find Mr. Pickett’s Journal. Looks like he found what he was looking for - or rather, it found him. Return back to Sebastian to claim your reward, which includes XP, 375 Bits and some positive MSI reputation.
