    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 complete the task.

    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, '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 acquire some modulators'

    Overvolt Rigster the IV says 'The modulators you are looking for are called Silver-Plated Gizmatic Modulators. I've personally acquired a few of these off the lower level steamworks in the Guardian. But! I need more! Bring me some more so I can sell on the free market! Let me know if you'd like to gather some folks and [head into] the Mechamatic Guardian.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Modulation!'.

    Overvolt has asked you enter the Mechamatic Guardian and to acquire Silver-Plated Gizmatic Modulators. These are found on the lower level steamworks in the 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 roaming Mechamatic Guardian via a doorway in its foot.

    Acquire Silver-Plated Gizmatic Modulators from steamworks in the Mechamatic Guardian 0/15 (The Mechamatic Guardian)

    Turn in the Silver-Plated Gizmatic Modulators to Overvolt Rigster 15/15 (Dragonscale Hills)

    (Closing dialogues needed.)

    On a level 85 character (an alt of mine), with approx 500 AA's already, this quest gave a reward of just under 2AA's with 100% to AA.

    In MG these can start dropping at the entrance and off of almost any mob, except slimes didnt seem to ever drop one.

    The Platinum-plated items for the other similar quest only seem to start dropping from about the Mark II teleporter spot and up.

    These dropped from the minotaurs in Dragonscale Hills last night.

    (Nevermind, I was on a different character there last night... these had to come from the Goblin Fort in Loping Plains.)(I don't know how to delete this message,sorry)

    Is the task updated from the act of looting only, or can you walk in with a stack of these already and use them somehow?

    Tell Overvolt Rigster the IV that you want to "head into" the guardian. This allows you to approach and zone into Dragonscale's roaming Mechamatic Guardian without getting kicked away.
