You have aided Arachnos by piloting its fliers, helping Lord Recluse better mobilize his troops, earning you the Pilot Day Job. Logging out near a Black Helicopter will earn you a Speed Bonus, when you log back in, for a short time.


Transfer Points

After placing the bomb in the bunker for the Arachnos Pilot, return to him and you will be given a choice of contacts (Kalinda or Matthew Burke) and will be taken to Mercy Island.
