Warning: Do not give him the 10k, you will fail the mission and he will disappear. Choose to free them. Ask him were they are and he will tell you 6522, -1350 then he will disappear. head to the cave only after you talked to the farmer.

8. The cave is a difficult one, the NPC's have 9000HAM and respawn fast so you might want to take some friends. Below is a picture of the cave and were the poi are. First head to the Crate with Explosives and pick them up. Second head to the back of the cave and blow up the rock blocking the way to the wife and kid and third you have to escort the wife and kid out.

Warning: you cant burst run out. so be prepared to fight your way out of the cave.

9. After escorting the wife and kid to safety the wife will thank you and give you the Mark of Altruism. and you will also receive a badge for it.

If you fail this mission or something isn't working all you and your group have to do is leave the cave, and wait for about 5mins and re-enter. everything will reset. make sure no one is in the cave even if their not in your group.

Mark Of Intellect

10. You have to find a Bounty Hunter named Celmeo Erar that is surrounded by 5 smugglers.

11. She will spawn in the major cities in the following locations

Mos Espa: inside the courtyard that has the destroyed engine in it.

Mos Eisley: next to the garage

Mos Taike: outside of the Tavern

Once you find the bounty hunter, you find out that she needs help finding out which one of the smugglers is her mark. Tell here you want to try and help and then question the 5 smugglers. Try and figure out which one is the mark, then tell here which one you think it is.

High light below to reveal the answer:
When looking for the Bounty Hunter's mark, ask each smuggler "What do you know about the other smugglers?". The Bounty Hunter's mark will say one of the these three things "Don't trust XXX and XXX, both of them are lying." or "I overheard XXX and XXX talking earlier. They are both liars, don't trust either of them." or "I know that XXX and XXX are both liars. Don't listen to a word they say."
