The mechanics in this quest are different from any other, so be aware
of that. You'll be asked to acompany Montague and Elenor, but soon after
stepping out of the Hunter's Guild, you'll be approached by a Humar, setting
off a long cutscene that ends with Elenore giving you a mag cell to hold.
Once you gain control again, head towards Montague and Elenore for some
more info, and then go down to Mines 2.
Upon entering the first room, a Garanz will attack you, then two Sinow
several Gillchics. You do have to keep Elenore and Montague alive, but

chances to redo
it so don't worry. The easiest route I found for the first route is to
watch the guy
on your left most closely, and when he turn north and/or east, rush behind
the wall, and head to the next door. You'll also hear a radar sound if
enough to be spotted, so be careful. The next room is trickier since they

the door, and then run at an angle behind the guy walk in a line guarding
the next door.
This really is the only way to get past them, and here's it's a simple
matter of getting
the timing right. The following room has a large gate down the center,
it also has
a gap towards the front, so simply wait till both RAcasts are from from
facing you, and use the gap to go to the door on your right. The final

Talking with Ult will result in Montague and Elenore showing up, and
