I need a runaway clockwork motor for my mage newbie armor, any idea what kind of robot drops this thing?
A Bottle of Clockwork Oil

I'm doing pally defender quest and have had no luck finding a bottle of clockwork oil (note that this is a different drop from clockwork oil extract). Will this drop from runaway clockworks and rogue clockworks or only one of the two? Thank you.

If they're the rebel pieces, they are for gnome rogue newbie armour (which is quite good for it's level) - Bertox worshipers only.

Maybe I just have bad luck but whenever I go to steamfont I NEVER see runaway clockworks, where do these guys spawn a lot?

I see runaway clockworks quite regularly out by the windmills. In fact, I have four or five blackbox fragments stashed away and can't find a use for them. I'm aware of the Clockwork Cleaner VII quest in Kaladim but haven't found a receiver for them in Steamfont or Ak'Anon. If someone would tell me how to redeem them in Ak, I would really appreciate it.

For those of you who haven't really noticed faction has a lot to do with your level. While in Upper Guk one day with my monk and friend (monk was only 22 at the time) some spiders were indifferent and some were apprehensive. The apprehensive ones gave me exp while the indiff ones didn't. Was rather interesting.

Note on Micro Servos
# Aug 17 2001 at 9:29 PM Rating: Default
Both the runaway and rogue clockworks drop the micro servos, but the rogues drop them much more commonly. Nearly 1 per kill compared to 10 kills for 1 with the runaways. Best place to hunt for the servos is a bit south of the mino caves, between the windmills and caves entry.

actually the drop rate is about the same, 1 in 10 for both, I've camped these guys (rouges and runaways) from probably a total of 20+ hours over the last 2 months, trying to get my skill to 205

Thats what happens to your clock works if you don't patch the code red virus. :)
Does this drop ak faction?
# Aug 13 2001 at 6:34 PM Rating: Default
just wondering... does this thingy drop akkanon facton? please tell me!
RE: Does this drop ak faction?
# Aug 15 2001 at 6:53 PM Rating: Decent
No it does not drop the Ak'Anon faction
it seems to drop DefectiveClockwork Faction though. Check you con each time you take one on, it gets worse.
Micro Servo's

The Micro Servo's drop pretty common between the druid ring and kobald camp. Hope this helps.

These little guys also drop microservos for the ranger Trueshot Longbow quest. You need two (2!) servos for every attempt. One to get the treant bowstaff from the fellow in the ranger's guild (Kelethin version), and one to actually try and make the bow. These are a rare drop for any kind of freewilled clockwork, ie. rouges and runaways. a great place to kill all kinds of clockworks is right outside the mino caves near the windmills. I can normally get about ten servos in an hour and a half.

i hope i've helped.

Update: This has apparently been a change, and my earlier proclomation that only Rogue clockworks drop them is no longer accurate. When I had made the post, it was based on my experience from earlier, when I killed dozens upon dozens of runaway clockworks and never got a micro server. Ah well, can't be right all the time ;)

Actually runaways do drop microservers. I got two of them today.

Blackboc fragments

These drop NO DROP blackbox fragments but I can't figure out which quest they are for...anyone any ideas?

There are 2 quests. 1 in No Kaladim for the Miner's Cap 628. and 1 in So Kaladim. You need to give to Beno Tagnarle (or something like that) and he will give you a card which tou take to one of the islands in OOT and give to another NPC for various armor/weapon items.

For my gnome mage, they first conned indifferent. After killing a few this dropped to dubious down to apprehensive. But you never see a 'Your faction with <?> has gotten worse' message.

This bug looks like it needs a tune-up. When I mean tune-up, I mean its like a SUPER VIRUS that ran away. Its looks like its crossed with a fire beetle and a clckwork.

You'll lose DefectiveClockwork faction on these guys. The story behind them is Red V, a rogue clockwork, rebuilt himself as a free agent and started mass producing other free clockworks. These drop blackbox fragments, 4 of which are needed to reconstruct the quest about Red V.
