Mission Action.png The Girl Who Kicked the Vampire's Nest       Main Mission
REPEATABLE (Recommended Level No Data)
Keeping the vampire camp under surveillance, Zaha has made a detailed map of the vampires' installations. All useful information for someone who wanted to halt their plans and advance.
Tier 1
Zaha has identified where the vampires are strong and where they are weak; what they guard well and what they don't. She has identified several targets inside the vampire installations and made detailed planso n how to sabotage their operations and mess with their food supply.
  • Examine Zaha's scouting report
  • Pick up the blood contaminants
  • Enter the vampire bastion
Tier 2
Zaha has marked several things inside the camp that she feels should be destroyed. The fist is the small siege engines.
  • Destroy the northern siege engine
  • Destroy the southern siege engine
Tier 3
According to Zaha's report, the hanger area is where the vampires gather siege building materials. Destroying materials, disrupting the supply line, and taking out the engineer and the mechanic would halt the construction of new engines.
  • Go to the hanger section
  • Disable trucks (0/3)
  • Destroy siege building materials (0/10)
Tier 4
The vampires need a steady supply of fresh blood for their troops. Prisoners are kept and bled in the detention centre.
  • Enter the detention tent
  • Kill cel Rau, the Questioner
  • Free prisoners (0/5)
  • Destroy Blood stocks (0/4)
Tier 5
The blood already drained from the unfortunate prisoners is kept in large, heavily guarded tanks. Emptying or destroying the tanks seems close to impossible, but using Zaha's blood contaminates to poison the blood could work.
  • Enter the blood depot
  • Kill the Death Squad (0/6)
  • Contaminate blood tanks (0/3)
Tier 6
Zaha has observed the camp long enough to identify its leader. General Bogdan Calugarul is directing the troops, and his demise would slow the vampires' advance.
  • Locate General Bogdan Calugarul


There are 6 tiers to this mission.

NOTE: This is almost more like a Sabotage mission than an action mission. While in the vampire camp, you'll need to make sure to avoid almost all fights as the vampires in here are rated Nightmare and can be difficult to kill.

Tier 1/6

  • Examine Zaha's scouting report
    • On the crate, in front of her
  • Pick up the blood contaminants
    • The crate, under the scouting report
  • Enter the vampire bastion
    • Marked on your map, at (362,778)
    • If you go straight to the marked area, there will be a Wallachian Guard at the entrance and a pair of Wallachian Reserves hiding in the shipping container to the left. Unless you are in a strong group, you'll want to avoid fighting them.
    • You can jump over the fence without fighting at (390,755)

Tier 2/6

  • Destroy the northern siege engine
    • Marked on your map at (376,766)
    • If you jumped the fence in tier 1, it will be just to your right, up the ramp
    • There will be 2 Wallachian Divisions inside the siege engine. These will be much easier to kill than the Wallachian Guard at the camp entrance. Be careful of AoE attacks destroying the siege engine.
    • There will be a red-outlined tank inside the siege engine, destroy the Machine engine to destroy the siege engine
  • Destroy the southern siege engine

Tier 3/6

Tier 4/6

Tier 5/6

  • Enter the blood depot
    • A tent to the south of the detention tent. Marked on your map at (267,675)
    • There will be a pair of Death Squad guarding the entrance
  • 0/6 Kill the Death Squad
  • 0/3 Contaminate blood tanks
    • Scattered inside the tent, each tank will have 2 Death Squad guarding it.

Tier 6/6

  • Locate General Bogdan Calugarul
    • Inside a siege engine to the east of the blood depot, marked on your map at (352,642)
    • There are four Death Squad guarding the entrance, but you only need to clear 2 of them to get in
    • There will be 2 more Death Squad just inside the entrance
    • And then there will be 2 more Death Squad just on the other side of the tanks and machinery before you get to the General
  • Kill General Bogdan Calugarul
    • He will turn into a bat and fly away just as you're about to kill him

Armed with the wisdom of those who come before, Zaha was prepared for what to do today. An example to follow.

She was the eyes and ears and you were the arms and legs, working together to slow the wheels of time and give us an opportunity to investigate what the vampires are doing and why.

The idea that this is just about an army of vampires branching out, does not seem likely. There are probably multiple layers beneath the surface. As is always the case.

The ancient Greeks have about as much to teach us about fighting darkness as the Templars have to teach us about good taste. But her Aesop quotation apart, the little Gypsy girl had a point.

Her Due Diligence of the vampire installations were right on the money, but your swift and efficient dismantlement of said installations were priceless. High five! That little stunt bought us some time to figure out what this whole thing is actually about.

I'll be sure to make an accurate flow chart detailing it all to the higher-ups. Gold star.

A girl after my own taste, this Zaha. I commend her for educating herself beyond her limited station. Anyone who can quote Aesop gets an A for effort in my book.

And I commend you for taking advantage of her groundwork. Your infiltration and sabotage of the vampire camp gives us a bit more time to figure out the magnitude and reason for this untimely and bothersome crusade. I refuse to believe it's just about their expansion.

"It is easier to get into the enemy's toils than out again." Aesop really did have a knack for turning a phrase. I, of course, have no need for a library card.

You seem to have knack for getting out of trouble, which is a fine trait, especially in present circumstances. We can't allow ourselves to be too literal about these things.

Zaha: (Looking through binoculars) Twenty...twenty-three... Thirty strigoi. Huh.
Zaha: For this next, I think we are going to need bigger flamethrowers.
Zaha: It is not nice to spy on someone who is spying.
Zaha: (Bringing down the binoculars) At least you are not one of them.
Zaha: That means I don't have to kill you.
Zaha: That is what I am, a killer of strigoi.
Zaha: You know strigoi? Vampyre? Vampires.
Zaha: They have many names.
Zaha: There is more written about them than they deserve. But I have read it all.
Zaha: Most important thing in war is to know your enemy.
Zaha: I am Draconist and we have been at war with Strigoi since before I was born.
Zaha: We hunt them, they hunt us. It is a dance we do.
Zaha: No resting. Too little time for planning.
Zaha: But plans are important. I work hard to convince the of my tribe.
Zaha: "Don't fight blind, take time for preparation." They say, "Zaha, with her nose always in books! Always making plans, silly girl."
Zaha: This is why I go alone. For time to think, and to plan. Here, look.
Zaha: (Handing you the binoculars) See the strigoi in their nest. See what they guard well?
Zaha: (As you see two different views of the vampires in a camp below her) We can use it. See where they guard not so well? We can use that too.
Zaha: "It is thrifty to prepare today for the wants of tomorrow."
Zaha: Aesop. I have a library card.

Other Information

  • This mission can be somewhat long, and is much more difficult than other missions in the area. Players will need to either be over-geared for the area, or else teamed with other players in order to expect to complete this mission without an extremely high number of deaths along the way.
  • The side mission Blood Sample is located in the same tent as General Bogdan Calugarul
