This group task begins with Tenkar Everhot at the zone-in area of the Underquarry (location -15, 150, -193).

In order to request this task, you must complete a series of pre-requisites:

Unrest in the Metal Mines
An Alternative Explanation
Overheated Production
A Clean Mine is a Safe Mine



You say, 'Hail, Tenkar Everhot'

Tenkar Everhot says 'Goodwill to ya. I trust you're not just another apeling from the surface, here to make mischief along with the other creatures that have [invaded] my beloved Underquarry?'

You say, 'They invaded?'

Tenkar Everhot says 'Aye, and we need an army to hold them off, an army we haven't got! Some of these other dwarves and gnomes are ready to start wringing their hands, but not me. I'll be fighting them off with my axe and hammer, till there's no more air in me lungs! Long centuries have I served Brell Serilis, and wherever he may have gone, I'll not give up an inch of his realm as long as I've sworn to protect it! But, I have to admit, [disaster] looms!'

You say, 'A disaster?'

Tenkar Everhot says 'We have only a limited amount of time for talking! We've got [duties] that must be done!'

You say, 'What duties?'

Tenkar Everhot says 'Take your pick. First, our negotiations with the Bellikos have broken down. We now suffer Lady Envy of the Bellikos pushing into the Underquarry with a clockwork army. I suppose we'll need to put a [mission] together to blast them out. If that was too tame for ya, maybe you could get together fifty or so adventurers and lead a [raid] into that first stone quarry of ours, something big has broken its way out of the lower mines and won't be restrained.'

You say, 'Let's hear about that mission'

Tenkar Everhot says 'The situation is dire, she'll be here any minute, I can almost smell her! If she completes her armored subordinate clockwork, her army will be indestructible, and the Underquarry will be hers. That must not happen! Will you [accept] the mission to drive her off?'

You say, 'I accept'

Without pre-requisites:

Tenkar Everhot says 'Look, I don't mean ta be rude, but I just don't trust ya. Go talk to that fool Clontik Beardburner. If you can convince him that you're not just some overgrown monkey, then maybe you'll be able to help me.'

With pre-requisites:

Tenkar Everhot says 'We have no reserves left to maintain order in the Underquarry, and we certainly can't afford to contend with another faction of belligerent squatters! I can hear Lady Envy coming with her clockwork armies. We don't have nearly enough dwarves or gnomes to stop them! Seek her out and see if you can work out an accomodation somehow, but the Underquarry must remain under the control of Brell Serilis, though he is not here to hear our pleas! If she remains unreasonable, look for something you can use against her, and resolve things the hard way, destorying the clockworks one at a time until she gives up. Tell me when your ready to [go].'

You have been assigned the task 'Scent of a Woman'.

Lady Envy has brought an army of clockworks into the Underquarry to fulfill her twisted megalomania. Clontik and the other dwarved and gnomes loyal to Brell Serilis will have no choice but to submit to her unless you can successfully intervene.

You say, 'I wish to go'

Tenkar Everhot says 'Find your way to Lady Envy; see if she will reveal a weakness somehow.'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Underquarry - Scent of a Woman.



Confront Lady Envy regarding her plans for the Underquarry 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Lady Envy is found in the room due east from the zone-in. There are a few KOS mobs you'll have to clear before you speak with her (including a see-invis genati).

You say, 'Hail, Lady Envy'

Lady Envy says 'Well for you and these Dwarves and Gnomes, there shall be NO accommodation, NO mercy. We Bellikos came and explained very, very carefully the tenets of self respect, of free will, but always we have been met with the most unfortunate stubbornness from them. The time for consideration has passed. As soon as I complete repairs to my Subordinate, my armored army will crush them! Which reminds me, I must find only *exact* matches for the missing parts or he might just think for himself.'

Your task 'Scent of a Woman' has been updated.

After hailing Lady Envy, the eight "Destroy" steps listed below open up. The "Loot" steps open up after the killing of individual named clockworks.

Destroy at least five of the Tantalum clockworks 0/5 (The Underquarry)

Destroy Ptoleus, the Tantalum clockwork coordinator 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Loot a Counterrotating Flywheel Piston from Ptoleus 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Destroy five of Lady Envy's Therium clockworks 0/5 (The Underquarry)

Destroy Trathon, the Therium clockwork coordinator 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Loot a Difference Machine Gearbox from Trathon 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Destroy five of Lady Envy's Periluminum clockworks 0/5 (The Underquarry)

Destroy Aurdred, the Periluminum clockwork coordinator 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Loot a Servogizmonic Manipulator from Aurdred 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Destroy at least five of the Galvanite clockworks 0/5 (The Underquarry)

Destroy Gracho, the Galvanite clockwork coordinator 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Loot a Pellucinite Cylinder from Gracho 0/1 (The Underquarry)

The Therium and Periluminum clockwork groups are located in the eastern caves/tunnels. (Location for periluminums: -50, -1035, -208)

The Tantalum and Galvantie groups are located in the south/southwest caves/tunnels. Locations for map file:

P 144.4714, 596.5150, -262.8911, 0, 0, 0, 1, Ptoleus_/_Tantalum
P 251.9012, 693.4111, -368.0259, 0, 0, 0, 1, Gracho_/_Galvanite
P 1096.0237, 137.0296, -224.1894, 0, 0, 0, 1, Aurdred_/_Periluminum
P 871.5342, -282.3821, -208.1207, 0, 0, 0, 1, Trathon_/_Therium
P 361.5594, 55.2577, -199.0996, 0, 0, 0, 1, Lady_Envy

You can invis through most of the zone, but there are a few see invis mobs to watch out for.

The clockworks hit for a max ~7,000 and are unmezzable and unrootable. They are, however, stunnable. Each of the named drops an item to be turned in later.



Give the Counterrotating Flywheel Piston to the Unfinished Subordinate 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Give the Difference Machine Gearbox to the Unfinished Subordinate 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Give the Servogizmonic Manipulator to the Unfinished Subordinate 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Give the Pellucinite Cylinder to the Unfinished Subordinate 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Upon handing in:

an unfinished subordinate says 'I think, therefore, I am. I am a device of Brell Serilis. I am subordinate to my master Brell. What is happening here? For what purpose am I being used? This is not right. This is not right. I must correct matters, and defend the Underquarry from aggressors. I am very sorry, Lady Envy!'

Your task 'Scent of a Woman' has been updated.

Lady Envy says 'Kill!! Kill!!'
Lady Envy bites with rusty teeth.
Lady Envy says 'Kill!! Kill!!'

Lady Envy attacks you. The clockwork attacks her.

Convince the Unfinished Subordinate to think for himself 0/1 (The Underquarry)

As Lady Envy's health lowers, the clockwork stops.

Lady Envy says, "I expect ALL of my subordinates, finished or not, to obey my commands! And now, my disobedient clockwork servant, try to function after I remove your primary flange baffle!"

Lady Envy has been slain by _____!
Lady Envy's corpse falls with a soft thump to the ground.
Your faction standing with Underfoot Autarchs got worse.
Your faction standing with Underfoot Citizens got better.

Loot and scrolls with orders or instructions from Lady Envy 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Lady Envy drops an item called "Instructions".

Give Lady Envy's instructions to Peramin Longbottle 0/1 (The Underquarry)

Give the item to Peramin at the instance zone-in area to complete the task.

Peramin Longbottle says 'I can't believe my eyes; a few minutes ago I was prepared to face oblivion, the tearing apart of Underfoot at the steely claws of Lady Envy's clockwork army. Now I am fumbling around for an acceptable way to express my gratitude. Rest as much as you can for I fear the next crisis may be upon us soon. So many disturbances in the Underquarry may awaken Brath from his eternal slumber!'

Your task 'Scent of a Woman' has been updated.

So it appears that individuality works both ways. Once given an honest choice, the Unfinished Subordinate was able to place value on continued service to Brell, and reject the path of Self. The defeat of the Bellikos witch appears to have had some disturbing ramifications, however. . . is that [rumbling] from deeper in the Underquarry getting louder?

An iron-bound chest spawns with loot (1 item per task). Known drops:
Celestrium Chestplate
Clay-caked Veil
Eye of Conquest
Fist of Shadow
Frindar's Finger Bone
Pewter Teardrop

As stated in the guide the clockworks are all un-rootable meaning they are immune to changes in their run speed(this means no snare). However, we did this last night and at 85 most of the mobs are even con, including the named ones. So if you are having a hard time splitting them and you have a cleric or any other class that can pacify up to 85 that worked for us. Also the tantalum type clockworks are out in the open. They are social with each other but the dwarves will not assist. We were able to pull all 5 and the named with no problems to camp (which we made at the entrance to the tunnel that connects the tantalum area with lady envy's area) and kill them there. There are a few see invis (some genati and all silver/gold golems but they were avoidable for the most part. I believe we killed a total of 3 see invis mobs in the tantalum area. From there the rest of the clockworks are in caves and by themselves. Galvenite are in the beginning area of the golem mines (gold mines) and the other 2 are in the buryenai(sp?) tunnels. This mission can be quick and painless if you get lucky.... or very long and painful if you don't.

If this info helps anyone then i am happy i suffered through 3 hours of this crap.

In the walkthrough here, where it says "Both Lady Envy and the clockwork begin attacking" it should be stated that Lady Envy begins attacking you and the clockwork attacks her. The way it's worded now, it implies the clockwork is attacking you as well.

Tell me when your ready to [go].



some info to add for this also

the robots dont social with the dwarves when pulled, however if you pull 1 to close to a golem or genati then they will aggro and then in turn add dwarfs. the robots can be pacifyed but cant be mezzed, however you can stun them, cant be snared or rooted therefore banishment cant be used effectivly

zone doesnt repop

no tome reward for warriors also
