So, I've done the Warehouse a few times, and thought, hey, I wonder if I can get a different result by getting the jump on Madran?
I stationed my crew near the Romulan shuttle he uses to escape, and got the jump on him from the other side. He died, just before my BOFFs and I got wiped out.
Well, here's the relevant excerpts of the combat log:
[6:55] [Combat (Self)] Your High Density Proton Beam deals 88 Proton to Madran.
[6:55] [Combat (Self)] Your Bolt Setting deals 107 (81) Antiproton Damage to Madran.
[6:55] [Combat (Self)] Your Sniper Shot deals 280 (212) Antiproton Damage to Madran.
[6:55] [Combat (Self)] Your Bolt Setting deals 72 Antiproton Damage to Madran.
Yep, he went down in four shots. Sadly, this did not change the outcome of the mission - the shuttle got away, and nothing different happened as a result of Madran dying. I was almost hoping for an accolade. :p
yeah, that encounter has an invariable script. :p It always plays out the same no matter what happens. does the shuttle still respawn if you kill it and stand around staring at its wreckage? when I tried it on tribble, after a minute or so the shuttle respawned and started shooting at me again.
He can be intercepted? There's an armed shuttle? I just ran into his bodyguard captain, got curbstomped, managed to wear him down after 2 respawns (I suck at ground), then got "Mission Complete." I was supposed to do something else?
If you're VERY fast, yes, he most certainly can be intercepted. I pretty much nudged my way through the top doors and then immediately ran round the front of his office and targeted/focused fire as he ran down the slope.
I've not dared to try the shuttle yet. Too busy getting stomped by the bodyguards by that point.
