Note: Characters with stealth can do this quest by simply talking to NPCs. Without stealth the quest is extremely difficult.
The first and third option give nothing.
The second option continues the dialog.
Go to Wendy, who is standing outside the complex.
Go back to Atlanta, who gives you the Flower of Pavel to help restore Wendy's memory.
Wendy makes an effort to recall what happened.
While Wendy tries to remember, report to Yumi near the port spot. She gives you a lot of background information.
Return to Wendy who tells you about the last study conducted here, the Arrival of Eternal Spring.
Wendy tells you to ask Atlanta about it.
Activated projects are shown in a different color:
The research complex is defended by golems - lots of them!
Now it's fun time. Atlanta thought the southern entrance has fewer defenses but that does not really matter. The Weathermaster terminal device is located inside an area filled with agro golems with multiple hit points. If you don't have stealth it will be impossible to do this on your own.
In addition to all the defenses, the Weathermaster itself can hit you with a magical bolt. If the area debuffs you with bleed, don't let your hit points go too low!
What you have to do first is enter the password "ATL" by clicking on the letters.
Halt the Eternal Spring project.
Then go through all the available options at the terminal.
When done, go outside and talk to Atlanta again.
About the East and West Wings.
And finally a map of the area.
Atlanta then sends you to Wendy.
Wendy asks you to check the nearby bookshelf.
She warned you about traps and the shelf can indeed hit you with a magical bolt, so make sure your hit points aren't low.
Wendy does not know how to open the book and sends you to Yumi.
Yumi gives you the Key of Enigma to unlock the report.
Double click on the report to read it.
Confirm with Yumi that the password for the East Wing is "WDL" and give her back her key.
So you now have to repeat what you did at the North Wing.
It's the same procedure as before: The Weathermaster terminal is located inside an area filled with very tough agro golems.
When you somehow manage to reach it, enter the password "WDL" and then go through all the options.
When you click on the option "manage password" in the last dialog box, you can discover the password "N45" for the terminal at the West Hall.
You should then exhaust the rest of the dialog options.
Having finished with the East Wing, return to Atlanta which, not surprisingly, tells you to go to the West Wing.
Repeat the drill with the final Weathermaster by entering the password "N45" and then going through all the dialog options.
After you have terminated all activities in the three wings, Atlanta appears to be inert...
...but something lies within the rubble!
Wendy may know something about it.
This is the last message from Atlanta. I admit it somehow depressed me, as it seems we won't be seeing the Giants anytime soon!
Wendy becomes herself again and tells you about Dr Chaos. He is actually located a bit further from her, but he refuses to talk to you - so much for a flesh-rending Gigantic Chaos Golem Raid Boss!
Return to Yumi to report and get your reward.
The final quest reward after GoD update is 1 030 825 adena, Sealed Phoenix Earring, 4 898 650 exp and 5 099 850 sp.
The reward has been confirmed even for a level 78 character.
