This solo task begins with Overvolt Rigster the IV, a gnome in a camp beside a large telescope east of the zone to the Steamfont Mountains. You will need a group of at least three in order to zone in to complete the task, however.

You say, 'Hail, Overvolt Rigster the IV'

Overvolt Rigster the IV says 'Hi there _____! I'm Overvolt Rigster, though you probably already know that. My name is echoed in the halls and streets of Ak'Anon and beyond! I've been out here in Dragonscale Hills for what seems like an eternity, trying to find adventurers such as yourself to do [business] with. I need to continue to provide the finest goods to my associates!'

You say, 'Business?'

Overvolt Rigster the IV says 'Why yes, business! Surely you know what goods I sell and what goods I'm looking for! My merchant-ware is echoed in the halls and streets of Ak'anon of course! I'm looking for other [opportunists] like myself that might be out to make a quick buck or two. Are you one of those?'

You say, 'Opportunists?'

Overvolt Rigster the IV says 'Aye! I've got several jobs that I need able bodied adventurers to acquire mechanical parts and supplies so that I can further my trade. Would you be [interested] in acquiring a few items for me? If you've got any friends who may want to help out, I've also got some other specific [jobs] that I need groups of people to do for me.'

You say, 'Jobs?'

Overvolt Rigster the IV says 'I'm sorry _____, but you don't appear to be ready to take on any other jobs at this time. Perhaps you're [interested] in acquiring a few items for me? I will need you to do at least one of the other tasks before I send you on to my more important jobs.'

You say, 'I am interested'

Overvolt Rigster the IV says 'Good! For starters, I need someone to [explore] the Mechamatic Guardian and bring me a map of that giant behemoth. There's so much potential for scrap parts and supplies there, but I don't know where to look! Next, I need someone to acquire [modulators] and [stabilizers] for me. To be used in the production of various clockwork and steamwork contraptions! Finally, I need you to find one of my [scout clockworks] that I sent into the Guardian to explore the zone. It's very valuable to me and I'd like to get it back here safe and sound. While these are individual tasks, you will need to gather some friends to go with you into the guardian. Let me know if you'd like to gather some folks and [head into] the Mechamatic Guardian.'

You say, 'I will explore the guardian'

Overvolt Rigster the IV says 'Yes, yes! I want you to explore the dungeon and find all of the major rooms. Here, I'll give you this Hypo-Mechanical Cartagrophical Scanner to record the areas you visit. My blueprint of the Guardian shows there are four floors, with a possible fifth that are accessible. As you are exploring, I would like some of the inhabitants inside the robot destroyed for further research. Return to me with the Cartagraphical Scanner once you have explored the Guardian! Let me know if you'd like to gather some folks and [head into] the Mechamatic Guardian.'

You have been assigned the task 'Mechamatic Spelunking'.

You receive a Hypo-Mechanical Cartagrophical Scanner.

Overvolt has asked you enter the Mechamatic Guardian and use the Hypo-Mechanical Cartagrophical Scanner to scan the insides of the clockwork in hopes of mapping the zone. Return the scanner to him after all the data has been gathered about this zone.

You say, 'I'd like to head into the guardian.'

With one or two people, you get this response:

Overvolt Rigster the IV says 'Unfortunately I will not give you access unless you have at least two other people with you.'

If you have a group of three or more people, you should be able to zone into the solo instance of the roaming Mechamatic Guardian via a doorway in its foot. The instance always repops at 19 minutes 30 seconds.

I'm stuck on this part of the quest and it's one of my only quests remaining for Face Aug. I can't seem to figure out where you go for this update. I've been in 2 or 3 large rooms past the see invis "**** tunnel" at the ent on B-B Teleporter floor and neither gave me an update. Any ideas on how to get there without many enemies(even full groups were struggling with the "**** tunnel" unless I managed to single pull) to get the update?

Ok, I've figured this quest out. The update is not on the 2nd floor of Teleporter B-B as it may appear to seem, since the final update is teleporter C-C. There is actually a 3rd floor where u go up an elevator and get Expeditor Mark III. The final update is the portal for Expeditor Mark IV, right as you go through it you should get an update. The best method for steam warders is go to the entrance of 2nd floor where Teleporter B-B is. Then move up and ride the right wall when you get to the giant room with about 10 mobs in half of which see invis. Then you get to path outside **** tunnel and instead of going clear out the one or two mobs in the room directly behind you. Then pull singles and up to no more than 3 at a time until you get to the giant part of the tunnel with the numerous see invis. A Steam Warder paths there(and clean down to the ent to the tunnel out by where your little camped room is), just kill him and then return later and kill the same one for the updates.

Do you have to do this is the generic instance used for solo tasks, or can you go in the instance for the group tasks to get waypoint updates?

You can get the updates in any group mission, so if you know someone that can get the later on group missions you can just wander around freely to get your updates with no mobs around.

What Svenalo said is pretty well on the mark. Was his post that got us gong in the right direction -- Thx Sv. My info also be a bit sketchy as ima doing this all from memory and the fighting is intense. If you follow the path Svenalo describes - you will eventually come to a room with several see invis immediately on the right -- a ramp that leads to a locked door. There is a tunnel on the left side of the room - packed with mobs. Take that tunnel. You will come to another big room with a tunnel in the upper right corner - take it -- basically just keep following the tunnels. You will get the last update at a teleporter that goes up even higher. We checked it just a tad - got to what we lovingly call the brain room after all we went thru to get there
http://venividimori.net/mechsbrain.jpg.

We killed few mobs there than ran outta time so not sure whats after. Im don't have an FD pulling char so I won't say can't be done that way, but repops are 19m30s and there a ton of mobs to clear so I would suggest a very good cleric / well healed tank and good CC char. Normal pull at these upper levels was 2 to 4 mobs -- sometimes as many as 6. Our group make up was as follows:

Warrior - level 80 - not as many aa's as he would like but has all the importent ones -- COA and GOD geared for the most part - couple of tier 2 SOF. He is ex raider and knows his job well.

Cleric - level 80 - also not as many aa's as he would like - epic 1.5 -- mix of gear from tbs ally to sof - and is one HECK of a cleric

Druid (me) - level 80 - i have some aa's - combination ally tbs and some tier 2 sof gear - mostly dps and BU heal type thing.

Chanter (my bot) - level 80 - mix of tbs ally and sof tier 2 gear - what can ya say - he wears a dress.

Ranger - level 80 - has some aa's also - she always by my side -- mix of tbs ally and some sof level 2 - no group complete withoput the sacrificial ranger)

Beserker - level 79 - mostly tbs ally gear - would like some more aa's also - don't leave home without one - great dps.


if i rem more about how we got there - will edit post.
GL - this is an insane mission (fun wise)

The last teleporter for the quest is not hard to find if you know what to look for. From where the B-B teleporter drops you, you need to clear all the way to the far end of that floor. In that room is a little ramp going up. Take that ramp and keep following it, and you will come to a control room of sorts with a catwalk around the top. Take that catwalk to the right and there will be a passage...follow the passage and you will get to the teleporter.

Personally, I still have to get the CDS and PEC steps done (group broke up before we took the teleporter over) but I was able to explore the whole floor there with aspect of zomm...
