Confronting Sarif

Riots have broken out at Detroit, the UN is forced to take astand, and you learned from Eliza Cassan that David Sarif is keeping information behind.  Time to get answers.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

MEET SARIF IN MY APARTMENT [750XP]

OPTIONAL EXPLORATION

There's a breakable wall in the area with cement bags.  Entering grants you [TRAVELER 100XP], and inside some lockers with a [CYBERBOOST PROENERGY BAR]. Move the metal crate underneath the vent and crawl through.  Go down the ladder [TRAVELER 100XP] to find [615 CREDITS].

MEETING SARIF

Once you ride the elevator down and meet Sarif in your apartment, a cutscene will play [750XP].  You'll also be given the V.I.P. Pass.

You're going to need to find Isaias Sandoval, an associate and aid of William Taggart.  This means you'll have to make your way to the convention center.


It just gets more confusing

            

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

GET SANDOVAL'S LOCATION FROM TAGGART [750XP] [SILVER TONGUE 1000XP]                                            

When you enter the lobby, and if you talked Wayne Haas into letting you into the police station, he'll now blame you for losing his job.  The absolve option leads to a nice conversation, the crush option leads to fighting.

The streets have changes, new NPC's are walking around, and the shops have new inventories.  You should definitely buy the two Praxis Kits at the LIMB Clinic (plus Typhoon Ammo and Hypostims if you can).  At Grayson's, buy the EMP Grenade along with any weapon upgrade you deem useful.  It never hurts to stock up on Stop! Worms and Nuke Viruses either.  Seurat also has new supplies, and you might want to buy the Gas Grenade, along with any weapons or upgrades you find interesting.  After buying the essentials, continue with the game.

(*) If you've bought the Silencer before, it won't be available. If you visited Greg Thorpe (and saved his wife), you'll get a ~25% discount on all of Seurat's prices.

Make your way to the convention center, which is down the road past the LIMB clinic, and go inside. 

Note: On your way to the convention center, Pritchard will contact you regarding the security leak you confronted Sarif with earlier in the game, that is, if you spoke to Pritchard back then and read all your emails.  You can now start the sidequest "Acquantances Forgotten".

You'll find Taggart in the Meeting Room, which can be found upstairs.  As soon as you enter, a social battle starts.  It works especially well to keep confronting Taggart with the facts, partially agreeing with him and then push onward with your argumentation about what really matters for the subject [SILVER TONGUE 1000XP].


Bearding the Lion

Meet Taggart backstage and look for a [HUGH DARROW EBOOK] (Vagus Nerve  Stimulators - Repurposing the Technology) next to the coffee machine behind the sofa.  There's also a [BEER] in the room with Taggart.  After telling you where Isaias is, exit the convention center [750XP].

Should you fail the social battle, you'll need to find some other way to get information on Sandoval's location.  You can get this information from Taggart's PC in the backstage room to the south, but you'll need to sneak past the bodyguards.  A more detailed description on this will follow in a later update, but for now it suffices to say that you've been through worse situations and cloak significantly helps you.  The bodyguards don't grant experience, so don't feel obliged to take every single one out.

As soon as you exit the convention center you'll be approached by Nicky, and you have the option of starting the "Smash the State" sidequest.
