Eron Nurwistle may be found on top of a windmill, at +800, -550. You must have a minimum skill of 250 in Smithing (confirm?) to receive this task.

At the end of the previous task:


Eron Nurwistle says 'Yes, that is the reconfiguration. I hope it was not too difficult. For your next task, I would like to send you to fortress [mechanotus].'

You say, 'Mechanotus?'

Eron Nurwistle says 'It is difficult to say what Meldrath's greatest achievement is, but the Fortress Mechanotus is probably amongst the greatest. A complete island that might as well be one gargantuan clockwork that dwarfs the guardian. But that is enough about how brilliant he is, what we are more concerned with is how we can hurt him while achieving my goal of completing the necklace we are working on. If you are an expert [smith], I will send you on your next task. Additionally you will need to be more experienced than on the previous tasks I have sent you on as the areas I am sending you in are much more dangerous.'

You say, 'I am a smith'

You have been assigned the task 'Scrap Oil'.

Receive Eron's Reconfiguring Steel, a scribable scroll.

Eron Nurwistle says 'For the next step we will be making a tertiary set of settings for the jewelry. You will need to find some magnetized metal that amazingly enough can only be found in scrap yard of the fortress. Additionally you will need some oil to lubricate the setting. This oil will actually be sealed within the joints, so it I (sic) a rather difficult process. You have to heat just enough to make the metal malleable, but not so much that the oil catches flame. As usually (sic) I have given you a book with the recipes you need. Once you have shown me the parts, I will give you the mold that you need.'

For Eron's next step you will need to go to Fortress Mechanotus and gather some metal and oil he is looking for. While you are at it you will need to Loot some of the gem grade faycite crystals.

You will need to find the refinery and the scrap heaps around the fortress in order to find the metal and oil that you need. You will also likely find the faycite crystals you need just killing to get to that area. Once you have found it all, purify the ore, and then as usual, give half of what you have found to Eron for his research.

Loot 10 Magnetized Scrap Metal 0/10 (Fortress Mechanotus)

The scrap heaps are in the far North West of the zone.

Loot 2 Refined Steamwork Oil 0/2 (Fortress Mechanotus)

The refinery is in the far North East of the zone.

Loot 2 Green Gem Grade Faycite 0/2 (Fortress Mechanotus)

Loot 2 Red Gem Grade Faycite 0/2 (Fortress Mechanotus)

Create 2 Refined Magnetized Scrap Metal using tradeskills 0/2 (ALL) (Recipe)
Combine in a Forge (Trivial 100)
High Quality Carbon Powder (purchased from Blacksmith Gerta in PoK near small bank)
5 Magnetized Scrap Metal

Give Eron one of the Refined Scrap Metal to inspect 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Deliver 1 Refined Steamwork Oil to Eron Nurwistle 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Deliver 1 Green Gem Grade Faycite to Eron Nurwistle 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Deliver 1 Red Gem Grade Faycite to Eron Nurwistle 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Speak with Eron after he has had a minute to inspect the Metal 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Receive Eron's Configurable Tertiary Setting Mold.

Create 1 Eron's Tertiary Setting using tradeskills 0/1 (ALL) (Recipe)
Combine in a forge (Trivial 400)
Eron's Configurable Tertiary Setting Mold - Returned on Failure, Returned on Success
Refined Magnetized Scrap Metal - Crafted
Refined Steamwork Oil - Dropped

Create 1 Eron's Tertiary Setting Jewelry using tradeskills 0/1 (ALL) (Recipe)

Show Eron your progress on the Jewelry 0/1 (Dragonscale Hills)

Eron is satisfied with the work you have done so far on his jewelry.
You have gained 3 ability points! You now have 3 ability points.
You gain experience!!

Eron Nurwistle says 'Yes, that setting works great. For your next task, you will need to test your [fletching] skills.'

I suggest adding:

In jewelry kit, combine:
Eron's Tertiary Setting
Green Gem Grade Faycite
Red Gem Grade Faycite
Eron's Reconfigured Simple Jewelry


after:

Create 1 Eron's Tertiary Setting Jewelry using tradeskills 0/1 (ALL)

I assume, or hope, this is a no-fail combine. The info isn't mine, I copied it from very helpful posts which follow, credit being due to them.

BTW, the previous combine, with a trivial of 400, has a real chance at failing. I failed twice, and had to go back and pharm more components, before succeeding.

got the task and saw the drop rates for this item, not good, but continued. 6hrs later no oil and only 5 at a time spawn, down the elevator, in the refinery. So wondering, do the mobs of the correct name outside the refinery area have this, as well? not a post or anything to look at, regarding drop.

Part 1: Magnetized scrap metal
I ran to the NW area with my druid just fine with invis. I pulled a recycler and he was rootable and snareable.
In fact all the mobs were rootable/snareable.
All your red and green shards will drop here too.

You will ned to loot 10 Magentized scrap metal at a minimum.
IT takes 5 to make the refined scrap metal. you give one away and you need two for the jewelry.


Part 2: Refined oil
Pretty easy, kill and get the drops. Mobs are rootable and snareable.

Eron's Tertiary Setting Combine
MY first combine failed, Blech, but with my AAs I recoveed the Refined Scap metal, the best one to recover, and I made it on attempt 2. I had extra oil.

Final Combine
From suzzi's post down below:
In jewelry kit:
  • Eron's Tertiary Setting
  • Green Gem Grade Faycite
  • Red Gem Grade Faycite
  • Eron's Reconfigured Simple Jewelry

    Can anyone tell me what I am missing? I try to do the combine for the Refined Magnetized Scrap Metal, and get the following message: 'This seems correct but something is wrong. Perhaps you need to know something more in order to combine this'

    I am level 82 (requirements say level 80 needed) with a black-smithing skill of 300 (336 with my trophy - requirements say 250 needed). I have bought and scribed every trade skill book/scroll I can find. What else do I need?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    I just completed this step today and it only gave me 2 AA.

    You combine the Refined Magnetized Scrap Metal, Refined Steamwork Oil and the setting mold in a forge to make the tertiary setting, then you combine the tertiary setting, one green gem faycite and one red gem faycite and the result from the last step in a jewel kit to make the final piece for this step.

    Task Requirements
    # Dec 21 2007 at 4:52 PM Rating: Decent
    For any of these seven tasks, you must have 250 raw skill in the appropriate tradeskill. You must also be Level 75 to obtain the first five tasks no matter your skill, and Level 80 for the final two. While it *IS* possible to obtain all seven tasks at once if you're L80 and have the skills, each step requires the reward from the previous step to do the final combines, so if you're stuck on Clay Within the Beast, having everything done for all the others will just eat up bank space... and a lot of it at that. It does at least allow you to get your tags for collecting various drops and doing your smaller combines, however :)

    (Dragonscale) Not So Simple Jewelry: 250 Jewelry
    (Mechamatic Guardian) Clay Within the Beast: 250 Pottery
    (Various zones)Food For the Injured: 250 Baking
    (Fortress Mechanotus) Scrap Oil: 250 smithing
    (Hills of Shade) Shadow Counting: 250 fletching
    (Bloodmoon Keep) Blood For the Cure: 250 Brewing
    (Steam Factory) Steamy Revenge: 250 tailoring
