Jarah Reskan may be found in Gemchoppers Hall at 840, -463.

You say, 'Hail, Jarah Reskan'

Jarah Reskan says 'Greetings, child. Welcome to Gemchopper Hall. I trust that you are a [warrior], or perhaps you are lost..?'

You say, 'I am a warrior.'

Jarah Reskan says 'That is good news! We gnomes are not known for our love of battle so it is always good to bring new blood into our ranks. We shall prove our worth as warriors to all other races. For now, there is much to do in Ak'Anon. There are [rogue clockworks] and the [cargo clockwork].'

You say, 'Cargo clockwork?'

Jarah Reskan says 'The cargo clockwork is located near the entrance to Ak'Anon in the Steamfont Mountains. It runs a delivery to the windmills every five days at eight in the morning. There have been attacks by a group of highwaymen. They are quite a formidable group. I have offered a reward for their heads. Be very careful if you plan on escorting the cargo clockwork. This trio of bandits is very strong.'

Zondo Hyzill stands close to the spawn point of the Cargo Clockwork in the Steamfont Mountains.

You say, 'Hail, Zondo Hyzill'

Zondo Hyzill says 'Glad to meet you. Our Cargo Clockwork is marvelous, no?'

You say, 'Yes, it is marvelous.'

You get no other response from him.

Every 5 ingame EQ days (or 6 real-time hours) the Cargo Clockwork will make a journey from his starting position near Ak'Anon to the windmills. He will leave at 7 AM gametime.

Cargo Clockwork takes off.

Cargo Clockwork says 'this unit requires oiling.'

The cargo clockwork will proceed at an agonizingly slow pace towards the windmills. It will take him approximately 9 minutes to get there, he will arrive around 10AM gametime.

Watchman Grep says 'What a glorious machine the cargo clockwork is!!'

Cargo Clockwork Chuga.. Chug..Chug..

Cargo clockwork will emote various phrases during his journey. Eventually, the Cargo Clockwork arrives at the windmills.

Frebin Tinderhue says, 'Hmm. Sounds like the weekly shipment has arrived. I'd better go grab it.'

Cargo clockwork will stand at the windmills for around 2-3 minutes before making it's journey back towards Ak'anon.

A short distance away from the windmills you will be attacked by the three bandits.

Cargo Clockwork says 'The chugging of the Cargo Clockwork comes to a halt. Cargo Clockwork say, This is highway robbery!'

Your Location is -717.50, 114.49, -109.82

Three highway bandits attack: Hector, Jerald and Renaldo. Once they're dead loot their heads.

--You have looted a Hector's Severed Head.--
--You have looted a Jerald's Severed Head.--
--You have looted a Renaldo's Severed Head.--

Head back to Ak'Anon and give the heads to Jarah.

Jarah Reskan says 'I heard our shipment made it back safely. These heads will send a message to any other thief that plans on robbing our cargo shipments. Thank you ______, take this mask and this coin as your reward.'

If it's true they removed the mask from the game then it is one of the most stupid mistakes they could have made. It took them years to fix this quest and then they take the reward away? I remember the days when the Cargo Clockwork would go the path leading to the windmills and get stuck, spinning in a circle and the bandits would never spawn and it would just disappear after a couple of minutes and reappear back by the entrance to the city a little while later. So they respond to a long standing complaint from players and then ***** it all up again. This is like the Bunker Battle Blade quest in Freeport that they screwed up by taking the reward away.


Well, it looks like they made it so the Cargo Clockwork doesn't even move from it's starting position anymore. I sat next to it from 9AM game time until 11AM game time the next day and it never budged.

I completed this quest today and can confirm that I did NOT receive the mask as a reward, although I'm playing on a progression server so if this was somehow flagged as gear from a later expansion (perhaps added during the newbie-quest expansions?!?) then that's not surprising.

What was interesting is that I also did not receive any faction hits. So the quest current reports this reward :

Again, I can confirm I didn't receive any faction hits. My coin reward was 2 gold, 6 silver, 1 copper.

The item was added in our item table on 11-15-2005 which was in the DoDH expansion. It's possible it might be from a earlier expansion but the stats are way too good for pre kunark. The quest entry was entered in on Sun Jun 25 12:03:47 2000 so it appears they updated the quest reward to match the current expansion at that time which was DoDH so that's what I'll change the era to for the quest and item.

I did this quest again today on Mangler server. We are currently up to SOV and Luclin will come out in 5 days. Unfortunately, I did not receive the mask so it is definitely an item that was added after SOV. Will try again next week and if no mask will try when POP comes out if I remember.

The last report we have was from 2014 stating that they did get the Mask. Far as I know nobody has said otherwise since then unless I'm missing something?

I am sitting beside the Cargo Clockwork right now and have been for the last 27 game hours and it hasn't moved in all that time. Apparently, they removed the quest altogether and the Cargo Clockwork no longer moves at all.

Edit: Still sitting here another 8 game hours later and it still hasn't moved. The quest has to have been removed at some point since the last confirmed report that the mask was still available.

This quest is working correctly as it should. See my post below. I have completed this quest 3 times in the last week and have received the mask all three times. That is how I was able to verify the faction hits. The cargo clockwork only goes out every five eq days and all three times it left at 7 am instead of 8 am like the quest text indicates. The three bandits will kill it by the wind mills if you don't save it. You turn in the three bandit heads to the female warrior guildmaster for the mask. Several years ago this quest was broken and they were not giving the mask upon completion but they have fixed it. I am glad it is fixed because this is an awesome old school quest.

Just did it for myself on the Luclin server. Took 3 hours from the time I got there before the clockwork started moving so i guess I got semi-lucky I didn't have to wait the full 6 hours. Confirmed that I got the mask on the head turnin as well.

What is kind of neat is that one of the bandits drops a Fine Steel Katana, which as far as I can tell is the only actual katana graphic in classic EQ, and he is the only source of the item prior to Luclin when Stonebrunt Mountains goes lives.

I noticed that as well. I also believe these are some of the lowest level mobs in that drop fine steel weapons at level 14. Granted it's only the katana, spear, rapier and dagger that they will drop but still very nice drops for the level. The mask reward is excellent because it is all/all useable with no level restriction and tradeable. The storyline, bandits loot, and reward makes this an awesome old school quest. But now I rambled on too much about this quest.

I can confirm as of today July 1st, 2011 there is still no mask reward. I got the usual speech and sorry we are out of mask and just 2 gold, 7 silver and 1 copper.

EDIT:
Did the quest again today (11/03/11) on the progressive server (Fippy) and again still got the message we are out of mask and was rewarded 4 gold, 1 silver and 16 copper.

Did this quest twice this week on a live server and got the mask both times. It appears they may have fixed it a long time ago.

Also, the three highway bandits dropped 2 Fine Steel Weapons each, a nice cash bonus there.

I just tried this quest on the Combine server, and the bandits are not level 4 as posted. They conned red to my level 10 toons, and were hitting in the mid-high 20's. I managed to bravely, bravely flee, barely.

They were DB to my 15 mage, so they're 13 or 14 (if indeed red to lvl 10)- my guess is 14 and they missed the 1 in the level...

Cargo clockwork quest broken
# Sep 18 2003 at 11:49 PM Rating: Decent
2 posts
This quest has been broken for a very long time. The cargo clockwork does start out at 8 am daily and go to the windmills taking its time to get there. I followed it and when it gets to the windmills it pauses and then says "This unit requires maintenance." On the way back it gets to about where Watchman Halv is and then suddenly vanishes from view and pops back instantly at its starting location. My guess is the bandits no longer spawn to kill it and since its not supposed to make it back safely the pathing simply warps home.
Bandit???

once a long time ago i was just running from windmills to akanon then i got backstabbed for like 70 damage and i turn around and theres a gnome killing me i conned him before i died he conned red to me at lvl 10 then right after i saw the cargo clockwork go right by my corpse. maby hes one of the bandits? i dunno. i dont remebr this guys name i think it was dogger or somthing but alls i know is he was a rogue...

man i cant believe no one knows what to do with this quest.
well anyways if you see the cargo at the mills try to give it some gears that drop off of the other cloakworks and some oil and maybe a blaxkbox i dont know but i know your have to give it oil.and that one guy right be for u leave AK i forget his name but sometimes he says something about a breeze from the south or east i know with a lev u can stop the mills from spinning maybe it has something to do with the cargo honestly like most of you i dont know what to do but if there are any like updates or something i hope im the first on my server to do this quest.

I saw it and killed it when it was close to the guard watchman halv, unfortuanally Halv attacked me and I had to run but i managed to kill the clockwork and in its place another (bandit?) spawned... before i had time to finish watchman halv off, he poofed so im thinking if you kill him something else might happen
huh

It seems fairly clear to me whats going on:
The clockwork was programmed to move towards the wind mills, but then get killed before reaching it (by the bandits). For some reason or another the bandits were removed, but the clockworks' journey and attack was not. This has left the clockwork heading on it's journey and dying weirdly.


Just an idea

Has anyone with tracking checked to see if the NPC's (noted as the "bandits") spawn when the Cargo clockwork starts it's journey? Perhaps you are supposed to kill them before the cargo clockwork depops?

try putting some oil and the lockbox in a toolkit and repairing it.. or however gnomes tinker. It needs oil, it needs to be repaired... when it despawns it drops something vital to every clockwork. dunno try different stuff you tinkering tinkerers!
err ya
