    Tabazin Gearflinger is located at +90, -1475, +375.

    You say, 'Hail, Tabazin Gearflinger'

    Tabazin Gearflinger says 'Well hello there! You've come to look at this marvelous machine, have you not? Isn't she amazing! I know, she looks battered now, but she'll be flying again in no time. I just need some [key parts] and a bit of elbow grease and I'll have her back in shape. Soon she will be terrorizing Meldrath's minions [again]!'

    You say, 'Again?'

    Tabazin Gearflinger says 'Of course again! Don't let those [naysayers] get to you. I was aboard when she flew up here and engaged the enemy. She soared like a hawk and struck like a snake! Why, there's no doubt in my mind that we would have won this battle right then if one of those crazy flying steambots hadn't got in through a window and crashed into one of the engines. The explosion was pretty bad, but she was still flyin' true! It was the smoke that got into the bridge that was the problem. The captain just couldn't see where he was going, that's why we crashed.'

    You say, 'What naysayers?'

    Tabazin Gearflinger says 'Those poopy pants! They say that the engine exploded under the strain of flight! What do they know about it anyway! Don't believe their stories about a slight down draft causing our crash, it's all poppycock! And we most certainly had engaged the enemy before the crash! No matter how many times they tell you that the Albatross hit the ground before the enemy had even know we were here, you just laugh at their ignorance!'

    You say, 'What key parts?'

    Tabazin Gearflinger says 'Oh, you know, simple things like springs, gears, [screws], wire, metal sheets. . . Nothing complicated and all of it could be scavenged from those rotten steamworks by someone [brave enough] to go out there.'

    You say, 'What screws?'

    You have been assigned the task 'Screw Loose'.

    Tabazin Gearflinger says 'Oh perhaps you're right, those broken down rust boxes may not have the screws I'm looking for. You will have to find those in some of the larger pieces of machinery. Take this "Sonic Screwdriver" and use it near the oil rig and recycler, it should extract the screws I need.'

    Find the places that Tabazin has indicated to you and pull a large number of screws from the machinery or structures nearby. He doesn't want you to take too many, as that might cause the structure to collapse on you and crush you. he warns you that the sonic screwdriver he has given you is magically powered and can only be used a few times, so make sure that you can use it undisturbed.

    You receive a Sonic Screwdriver (identifies as "Used to unscrew things"). "Take some Screws from" in each of the task stages means "stand at this location and click the screwdriver." Beware of roaming mobs.

    For those of you like me who are not good with coordinates, you have to go to the top level and then east and down for the oil rigs, west and down for the recycler towers.
    THESE SHOULD HELP :)

    Wadin's loc are dead on, verified today 1/21/09

    Please note that /loc in game does not give the cordinates in the same sequence needed when updating map files.

    Huge thank you to Wadin for the post, made this a lot easier.

    I found this ridiculously easy for a Bard to do... click/fade, repeat 10x. I was able to do each mission in about 10 minutes without having to kill anything, did it 9 times back-to-back (no lockout timer) to go from dubious to indifferent (I had done some tasks previously, for Crystallos access and Timmy's Oil can).

    I think there /loc locations for the first two steps are switched. I think it should be as follows:

    Take some Screws from the northeast oil rig tower. - Fortress Mechanotus
    Location is +2582, -1444, +406.

    Take some Screws from the northwest oil rig tower. - Fortress Mechanotus
    Location is +2556, -976, +406.

    Secondly. With some watching of the roamers, this is possible to be done without fighting anything and the use of invisibility. Just remember that the ***** drivers takes 10 seconds to cast. The list has to be done in order. The ***** driver will not work unless you have already completed the other locations prior to it. The oil rigs seem to be harder because of the roamers then the supports.

    Adding these points to your mechanotus_2.txt maps file should help:
    P 1444, -2582, 406, 240, 0, 0, 3, Screw_loose_1
    P 976, -2556, 406, 240, 0, 0, 3, Screw_loose_2
