You may have already read the 129 dataLore about the Guardians? It is now time to get these data by yourself on-site!

I will detail here the steps to follow in order to collect all the data from the Active Obelisks Alpha, Beta, & Gamma – ancient sites. Since the 2.3.0, you can now process this entirely in Solo mode.

Copy this sheet on an Excel in order to track your progression.

The ship

Any ship can be used, however I’d advise you with a medium-sized solid vessel to counter the potential aggressive pilots in the vicinity; yes, you will have to brave a little the dangerous Open World. An Asp Explorer obviously does the trick, a Python, a Diamondback, a Cobra – your call. 30 LY jump add a nice comfortable touch and Sulphur/Phosphore is nice to have in order to refuel your SRV.

12 units free in cargo is recommended in case you decide to store some ancient items in your ship, it is much more convenient and quick in the long run than to mop on the ground in search of an item.

Of course, a SRV Scarab is mandatory in order to investigate.

Get the mission - Decrypting

To kick it off, it’s not necessary for you to unlock Ram Tah.

  1. Go to the MEENE system, Felice Dock or Ram Tah’s planetary base;
  2. Ram Tah will contact you and provide you with the algorithm for the Ancient Site;
  3. Go to the sites with your SRV;
  4. There are different items: Orb, Tablet, Urn, Cakset, Relic, Totem. Combine one or two of them in your SRV’s cargo hold then scan the active obelisks;
  5. Complete the scans in order to complete the mission (around ~101 successful scans)
  6. Return to MEENE, Felice Dock and earn your 10.000.000 credits! Good luck. (1M per data + 10M final reward = 111M credits)

The clusters of obelisks

Thanks to Dognosh‘s amazing work, the guide is now simplified and allows you to follow the maps one after another!

The latter are numbered with coordinates and system information, so you just have to go there and analyse things. Don’t forget our toolbox and the fantastic EDBearing tool to easily find the ruins.

/!\ Important note: Once you scan an obelisk, you will hear the “incoming mission critical message” but wont always receive the message immediately. At this point, check your rewards and see if it has gone up by 1 million, If so, the combination was correct. The missing message will arrive on your next scan, making it seem like you got the data from the second obelisk you scanned.

The combos

For your information, here are the combos you have done with the above maps. Combine the ancient items in your inventory and then scan the active obelisks of the different clusters. You will get some data about the Guardians and their Lore.

We successfully developed a functional algorithm and it should help us once the other sites are discovered.
