How Corsair Down Works?

Once you receive corsair down from your enemy you can open it and look at its description. You will discover that it is actually nothing but a field communication device. And it sends out an SOS with a message attached to it which is repeating itself. The message contains a hint and tells you where to locate the person who is sending this message. When you locate the person you will find that it is too late and the person has died. A Boss will appear when you analyze the body and to obtain Corsair Badge you must defeat the Boss.

Locations Hints for Fallen Soldiers in Dreaming City

There are various locations where the SOS messages can lead to. Some of them are Gardens, Spine and Mist, Bay, Harbinger, Chamber, Aphelion, etc.

Location 1: If the SOS message in Corsair Down says something about any Garden then you must head for Gardens of Esila, in the South of the Strand.

Location 2: If the message says something about Spine and Mist, then it is hinting for Spine of Keres. It is in the area where the observatory is attached to the Oracle. The Northwest area to the observatory is made up of a bunch of spires and some islands are rising from the mist. You can find the dead bodies there.

Location 3: If the SOS transmission is repeating itself about a Bay, then you must head towards the Bay of Drowned Wishes. The entrance is just behind the landing zone and it’s a lost sector in the Divalian Mists.

Location 4: If the SOS is constantly transmitting about someplace, Harbinger, then you should go to an area north of Rheasilvia called Harbinger’s Seclude – that’s where you can look for the body. This one is close to the Dreaming City and if you’ve explored the Dreaming City, it should be easy for you to locate the place.

Location 5: The message that is repeating about a Chamber should be simple to locate. There’s a lost sector, called Chamber of Starlight, in the southern part of Rheasilvia. The body of the fallen soldier should be inside.

Location 6: In case the message is about someplace called Aphelion, then you should look for a lost sector called Aphelion’s Rest in the Dreaming City.
