Find James the Watchmaker in the Plane of Knowledge next to the Halas stone.

He offers a task for each one of the hotzones introduced in the April 18, 2007 patch (listed here for reference).

You say, 'Hail, James the Watchmaker'

James the Watchmaker says, 'Hello there _____! Do you happen to have the [time]?'

You say, 'The time?'

James the Watchmaker says, 'Yes, the time of day. You see I usually keep a number of watches with me at all times so I always know what time it is but I recently [lost], well, all of them.'

You say, 'How were they lost?'

James the Watchmaker says, 'I lost them when I was travelling last week. I wanted to visit some of the places in Norrath that were special to me but I seemed to run into trouble everywhere I visited! And wouldn't you know it but everytime I stopped for a bit I managed to lose one of my [watches]!'

You say, 'Watches?'

James the Watchmaker says, 'That's what I said, watches! Are you hard of hearing? I don't suppose you would like to [look] for my watches? I hate not knowing what time it is! I'm sure I could find something in my backpack to interest you if you found one of my watches!'

You say, 'I will look for them'

This brings up a quest selector with several quests: One for each hotzone ranging from 20 to 65. Each has a very original name of: "Help me repair my watch! (Level X)", where X is between 20 and 65, in multiples of 5.

The task for 60th level:

Deliver 1 Gold Etched Gear #1 to James the Watchmaker. 0/1 Plane of Knowledge

Deliver 1 Gold Etched Reinforced Rod to James the Watchmaker. 0/1 Plane of Knowledge

Deliver 1 Gold Etched Gear #2 to James the Watchmaker. 0/1 Plane of Knowledge

Deliver 1 Gold Etched Gear #3 to James the Watchmaker. 0/1 Plane of Knowledge

These gears are dropped randomly in Dragon Necropolis. They may be looted prior to retrieving the task.

Turn them in and choose from different head-slot items:

"Helmet w/Extended Range IV (except for Melee) +2 regen for all, +2 mana regen for Caster/Priests, +5 Attack for Hybrid/Melee"

(What are the names of the gears dropped, and what are the different rewards?)

Why...so....difficult...

Boggles the mind how you can make 4 archetypical items, put HP/Mana on the caster/hybrid stuff, and fail to put End on the melee only stuff.
Gear #3 and Rod seem to be rare...

...I picked up six #1 gears and four #2 gears but only one Rod and (finally) one #3 gear. I got these off the Phase Spiders and the Mercanary's near the entrance, hunting solo about 2 - 3 hours a night for about 4 nights.
Phase Spiders will drop the full set.

All of these can and will drop from Phase Spiders around the entrance, however they are less frequent than those in other hotzone zones. Expect to have a fairly lengthy camp to get the full set.

So far I've gotten all but gear #3 from a phase spider, in the large area between the gate-in and the gate in the back. I'm still waiting for Gear 3 to drop.


spiders are rootable and snareable and don't see invis but they can pop on top of you as some are phased "out" and you can't see them till they phase "in".


In the front area, watch out for some of the human mercenaries, two or 3 hang out by some ruins or bones or something and they blend in nicely and are hard to see the first time you come close to them. Some of the spiders hang out close to them. Agro one and the rest usually some running. I'd suggest rooting the adds early and they seem to break root faster than normal.

My alt is a 60 monk and the stats on this helm are decent.... however why does the weight have to be 2.0 for a monk? The one class that has a weight issue also gets the heaviest helm grrrrrrrrrrrrrSmiley: banghead. Come on Sony give us monks a break here.

As a 62 BST, took me about an hour and half to complete. Drops are random from any mob in zone. Very worthwhile. Did it twice, as first time I didn't receive award (I suspect I didnt select my reward before completing turns or something similar).
