I'm getting another form of Aid from Above here:

You take a great leap and tumble to avoid incoming attacks.
The eye gives you the Evil Eye and you burst into flames. The malefic green fire deals you 7 etheric damage.

You pump silver bullets into the eye. The bullets crackle, as though they had somehow been electrified, and deal 8 ranged damage.

You focus your gaze on the eye. It feels a strange tingling, then starts bleeding as a hole is bored into its flesh, dealing 21 etheric damage.

You call for aid from above. A winged shape pins down the eye with its gaze for 40 etheric damage.

EDIT: seems to just require the opponent having Entrapping Gaze. Doesn't need to be following or the same round.

Maybe worth testing this underwater?

Since Endless Tears seems to be learned from using Evil Eye in a fight and then losing the fight, I was also speculating if there are any rewards to be found from running away from a fight after having taken some action in that fight. Probably pretty niche but I bet there's one or two.

Sort of related - also speculating if there are any rewards from uninstalling a particular piece of cyberware.

I left a few gang warfare clones on the quad using only this (or possibly Do Nothing), if anyone wants to test what effect this gives opponents. Pretty sure Entrapping Gaze is applied. Each should use it on the first pass for a 8-base damage attack.

As OgremanSam points out above, the fight scene with pistol seems semi-random. I just got 2 Perc and 2 Will. I suspect 2 random XP + 2 Will XP. Is there any significance to random XP?

With 15 (0) / 14 (16) / 12 (8) / 26 (20)
2 XP Perc, 2 XP Will
2 XP Perc, 2 XP Will
2 XP Perc, 2 XP Will
With 15 (9) / 14 (0) / 12 (8) / 26 (20)
2 XP Perc, 2 XP Will
2 XP Perc, 2 XP Will

EDIT: tried this encounter a few dozen more times, always getting 2 XP Perc, 2 XP Will. Things tried:

  • orange juice
  • buffing/debuffing my stats
  • tome of binding, investigator's hat, holocaust coat, improbable pistol, Myers sampler, etheric, non-etheric, etc

Hm, this seems like it has to have more going on. I'm assuming you were at 3+ swimming ability while testing underwater?

Hmm… I didn't get the Cultured Pearl Necklace recipe using this, presumably because I didn't have any cultured or tiny black pearls, but did get the lake pearl necklace recipe (I had 3 lake pearls). So the limology video may potentially have more recipes that only unlock if you have the appropriate items.

So far this run:
Item Msg XP Cul XP Video
giant pike this is a rare specimen 7 XP 7 no
lake bluegill look at the toxin levels 3 XP 10 yes
lake bluegill look at the toxin levels 3 XP 13 no
lake bluegill look at the toxin levels 3 XP 16 yes
lake bluegill look at the toxin levels 3 XP 19 no
lake bluegill look at the toxin levels 3 XP 22 no
lake bluegill look at the toxin levels 3 XP 25 yes
lake bluegill look at the toxin levels 3 XP 28 no

Looks like every 8 XP gives a video?

Looks like Sofia is also capable of using Wings of Glass.

You snap at Sofia like a muzzled beast, ramming your headgear into her for 16 melee damage.
Sofia calls up a form of stained glass to strike at you for 17 etheric damage.

You hammer Sofia unrelentingly, dealing 20 melee damage.

You punch Sofia for 19 melee damage.

You continue to bleed from your jagged wounds, taking 6 damage.

You've won the battle!

As her life fades, she seems to accept it, less as recompense for her crimes than as an escape from them.

You've learned a new Skill: Run from Regret

You found: subdued dress
You learned a new Technique: Crushing Punch

You've earned 3 XP in Strength

This gets the same +4 Will and +4 Etheric Power bonus from Ocean Eyes + Cold Depths that the cultured pearl does, but if you've got both items equipped, the bonus only applies once.

This also allows you to learn Lethal Resolve if you've met the requirements and enhances Lethal Resolve while underwater.

Doesn't seem to be any difference with Focused Perception, either.

No difference in results with Ocean Sight / Ocean Song or Studious Nature.

Using an orange juice charge didn't do anything either.

Doesn't seem to have any added effects while underwater.

Edit: Following up on the stuff found by GoldS. The current list of specimens I have available to submit is:

  • bait bluegill: "Ah, good. Let's take a look at the toxin levels in this one. Hmmm… not great, but I suppose we were expecting that." 3 XP
  • clam meat: "You got this from the lake? Huh…", 6 XP, limnology video
  • dock pike: "Ah, good. Let's take a look at the toxin levels in this one. Hmmm… not great, but I suppose we were expecting that." 3 XP
  • eager fish: "You got this from the lake? Huh…", 3 XP
  • fresh mollusk: "You got this from the lake? Huh…", 4 XP, limnology video
  • freshwater eel: "Ah, good. Let's take a look at the toxin levels in this one. Hmmm… not great, but I suppose we were expecting that.", 5 XP, limnology video
  • giant pike: "Ooo! This is a rare specimen. We don't have as much comparison data, but it's interesting in its own right.", 7 XP, limnology video
  • lake bluegill: "Ah, good. Let's take a look at the toxin levels in this one. Hmmm… not great, but I suppose we were expecting that.", 3 XP
  • lake perch: "Ah, good. Let's take a look at the toxin levels in this one. Hmmm… not great, but I suppose we were expecting that.", 5 XP
  • lake squid: "That definitely shouldn't have that many eyes. Eugh. That's just too many.", 5 XP, limnology video
  • massive beak: "You got this from the lake? Huh…", 6 XP
  • massive tentacle: "You got this from the lake? Huh…", 7 XP, limnology video
  • mud eel: "Ooo! This is a rare specimen. We don't have as much comparison data, but it's interesting in its own right.", 5 XP
  • octopus eye: "You got this from the lake? Huh…", 2 XP, limnology video
  • serpent venom gland: "Ah, yeah. From the serpents my advisor is so interested in.", 6 XP, limnology video. Have tried this one multiple times, got the video all but one time.
  • shark fillet: "You got this from the lake? Huh…", 6 XP
  • shark tooth: "You got this from the lake? Huh…", 4 XP, limnology video
  • silver darter: "You got this from the lake? Huh…", 6 XP, limnology video
  • skullfish: "You got this from the lake? Huh…", 6 XP, limnology video

I'm guessing these fall into a few categories, and probably don't all have unique messages.

Don't appear to be any new conditions to worry about for triggering the Grand Finale.

This was a long shot anyway, but you can't use Monarch's Call on Metroplex Day to get the waterlogged plush after talking to the kid.
