|Talk to Vaifan Cogswin
Vaifan Cogswin may be found near Fezbin Fizzles at -35, +60, with whom you must have already completed the preflagging to accomplish this step of the quest.
You say, 'Hail, Vaifan Cogswin'
Vaifan Cogswin says 'Well, hello traveller. You here to help with the problems we've been having with the mechanical scout?'
You say, 'Yes.'
Vaifan Cogswin says 'Good to hear. I have been going out of my skull trying to tinker another one to find the first. Now that you are here, I can stop that and focus on compiling the information I already have. Let me tell you, being in charge of something like this is very taxing on the nerves. I remember being a young gnome and whenever I tinkered something it worked the first time. Ah, how good it felt to put the Cogswin family emblem on my wonderful creations. Nowadays it seems like everything I make has some intermittent flaw or defect. I might have to accept that I am getting old and a little slow, but I still have the wits to invent. I should stop rambling and get to the point. I am in charge of scouting the mountain areas known as [Tipt], [Vxed], and the [sewers] under the city. Which would you like to know about?'
You say, 'What is Vxed?'
Vaifan Cogswin says 'We have discovered that this continent holds many dangerous creatures, including the strange beings of the invading army. Many of these beasts can be found in the mountain area called Vxed. After being severely damaged in Tipt, the clockwork scout made its way back to Vxed to perform self maintenance, but I believe this is where it met its final demise. While the chance is slim, I believe you may be able to salvage enough of the parts from the creatures within Vxed to reassemble the frame. What you will need to find is a flickering finkenheimer, a tarnished sprocket, some uncoiled springs, a greased bolt, and some connection rods. When you have them all place, the sprocket, springs, bolt, and rods in the finkenheimer and bring me the result. I must warn you to be careful though. If these things could stop my clockwork, they must be pretty powerful creatures.'
Collect the Parts
The parts are random drops in Vxed. You need a Flickering Finkenheimer (the container), a Tarnished Sprocket, some Uncoiled Springs, a Greased Belt (Vaifan got confused), and some Connection Rods. Once you have the parts, put them all in the Finkenheimer and hit combine. Note that you must have had the quest assigned to you by Vaifan or the combination will result in nothing:
You have trouble fitting the pieces into the frame correctly. Each attempt ruins the frame a bit more until it crumbles into multiple unsalvageable pieces.
If you had the quest assigned to you, you see this instead:
Linking the pieces together the you create an empty clockwork shell. [sic]
You craft a Clockwork Scout Shell.
Give the shell to Vaifan.
Vaifan Cogswin says 'I can't believe you did it. Not a bad job if I do say so myself. You may have a future in tinkering my young friend. Now, if you will give me one second to change a few things and rip this part out, adjust this here, add a couple of these, and there you go, a nice new clockwork frame. Now we just need to collect the rest of the pieces to rebuild him. Oh, and before I forget, here is a reward for helping me out. Let me know if you wish to explore any of the other areas by asking me about them.'
Flag: You were successful in helping Vaifan complete her report of the Vxed mountain area.
You receive A Dusty Gem Shard, which you may combine with A Muddy Green Gemstone and Vaifan's Clockwork Gemcutter Tools in Vaifan's Experimental Sealer to craft A Dusty Green Gemstone. You also receive an Inactive Clockwork Scout Module, "for the rest of the pieces to rebuild him."
