|This group task is the fourth in a series of five and begins with Clockwork Warmarshal, who is located near the Ak'Anon Strike Force camp at the zone-in of Fortress Mechanotus.
You say, 'Hail, Clockwork Warmarshal'
Clockwork Warmarshal says 'Hello there soldier. It's good to see so many Norrathians rally to help stop this menace! Since our crash and my [promotion] to leader of the Albatross' ground forces, I've been overwhelmed with necessary military action and underprovided with forces to complete those actions. I know it's unusual, especially since you are not officially enlisted for this action, but perhaps you could [accept orders] from an old clockwork and help out all of Norrath in the process? Or if you and your allies are truly brave, someone needs to make forays into those dratted [gyrospires] if we're to have much of a chance getting reinforcements up here.'
You say, 'Gyrospires?'
Clockwork Warmarshal says 'In addition to the Fortress Mechanotus, Meldrath made three other spires that he uses as roving tower defenses. Though he called them guard towers, and they could help intercept attacks, intelligence we have gathered indicate he also planned to use them in his attack on Ak'Anon. When Ak'Anon made it's counter attack we managed to destroy one of them before we were unable to continue to fly. Our intelligence indicates that they are called gyrospire [beza] and gyrospire [zeka].'
You say, 'Beza?'
Clockwork Warmarshal says 'Though you have completed all of the tasks I have given you, we find that we need for them to be repeated multiple times as Meldrath keeps supplying the towers with new clockworks to replace the ones destroyed. Because of this we have not quite disrupted the tower enough to take possession of it. Would you like to [confront] the challenges in Gyrospire Beza again?'
You say, 'I would like to confront those challenges.'
You have been assigned the task 'End the Return'.
The direction to the entry to your instanced zone(s) have been marked on your compass.
The Clockwork Warmarshal needs you to inhibit the ability for the steamworks to recover after your attacks.
Destroy a significant amount of their store of supplies. You will need to gather supplies with which to do this while you are inside. Be sure to kill the steamwork responsible for refueling other steamworks and the brownie responsible for their repairs. Also destroy more steamworks and kill other brownies that you see.
Go to the Gyrospire Beza Launch Catapault - 0/1 - Fortress Mechanotus
Kill 25 Steamworks - 0/25 - Gyrospire Beza
Kill 10 Brownies as they do much of the repair work on the gyrospire. - 0/10 - Gyrospire Beza
Find something that can be used to light the fuel - 0/1 - Gyrospire Beza
The "light" is a ground spawn on the top floor, in a small room near the ramp that leads to the roof. There's a single gnome in there, and a hearth/forge. The ground spawn looks like a large burning coal on the floor in front of it. The light is a Burning Ember found near grill in kitchen on third floor.
Find something that can be used to destroy the repair parts. - 0/9 - Gyrospire Beza
The "substance" is a Glob of Oil. You can find about 12 of them in the round room that contains the "center pillar" by clicking on the oil drums around the outter walls of the room.
Destroy the fuel that is fed from the central pillar. - 0/5 - Gyrospire Beza
The center pillar is in a round room about halfway up the tower, that has a large pillar in the middle and has 5 spouts labled oil around it. Stand on top of each one and use the "Ember burst" click to destroy them.
Kill the steamwork that fuels the other steamworks. - 0/1 - Gyrospire Beza
Fuelmaster XI can be found in the same center pillar room.
Kill the brownie that repairs the steamworks. - 0/1 - Gyrospire Beza
Tomoko is on the next floor up from Fuelmaster XI. From the ramp, first room on the right side.
Spread the substance you found over the parts. - 0/7 - Gyrospire Beza
You may very well need all 12 clicks. All the parts can be found in Tomoko's room. The "parts" are boxes, mostly wooden looking ones but two look like metal boxes. Stand in front of them and click the Glob of Oil to update this step.
Destroy seven containers of the repair parts. - 0/7 - Gyrospire Beza
This one seems buggy. We got 5/7 without realizing it. We're not sure if destroying the fuel or spreading the oil somehow updated this one as well. We got the last 2 out of 7 by using the Ember Burst click while standing on the boxes that look like they contain steamwork heads, in the same room as the parts from the previous update.
Return to Clockwork Warmarshall and report your progress. - 0/1 - Fortress Mechanotus
You say, 'Hail, Clockwork Warmarshal'
Clockwork Warmarshal says, 'By destroying the fuel stockpiles and repair parts, you have impaired their ability to mount a successful counterattack. If you are interested, there is more you can do in gyrospire [beza].'
Your task 'End the Return' has been updated.
You have reduced the ability of the gyrospire's forces to recover from attacks.
Your faction standing with Ak'Anon Strike Force V could not possibly get any better.
You have successfully been granted your reward for: End the Return
