|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group task begins with Gurtrude the Spymaster who can be found at the Ak'Anon Strike Force camp near the zone-in of Fortress Mechanotus. It is available after completing "S.H.I.P. #1: Deception and Interception". |
You say, 'Hail, Gurtrude the Spymaster'
Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Shhh. . . A good spy knows to keep her voice low and quiet. Now, have you come here to assist me with my [work], or to [try to join] my gaggle of spies?'
You say, 'Work would be good.'
Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Well, it is my task to lead a fine group of spies. I can't tell you anything about them, but it is our duty to infiltrate the enemy's structures, disrupt their war effort and steal what secrets we can. Now, I readily admit that none of us on this detail were much for spying before the crash, but when it became obvious that we would not win this battle by strength of arms, I convinced many of the crew to work together as spies. They are even now infiltrating Meldrath's infrastructure. Though, we are spread a bit thin, and there is no support from the ground for our efforts. Perhaps you might be willing to do a few simple [tasks] for me?'
You say, 'What tasks?'
Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Good! Obviously I'm risking the lives of my people by trusting you, but I have no choice. I won't be sending you to speak with our most important spies, however, since I really don't know you very well. Will you be handling this [alone] or with trusted [friends]?'
You say, 'I have friends.'
Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'I hope these are good friends, because you'll be asking them to do some dangerous work. Good luck!'
You have been assigned the task 'S.H.I.P. Sabotage!'.
You have been asked to help one of Gurturde's spies build and detonate explosive devices inside the S.H.I.P. Workshop. He is probably very well hidden somewhere on the second level. Let Gertrude know when you are ready to 'sneak in'.
You receive a Spark Wheel.
Deliver 1 Steamwork Power Crystal to Ak'Anon Spy 0/1 (S.H.I.P. Workshop)
Deliver 1 Clockwork Metrognome to Ak'Anon Spy 0/1 (S.H.I.P. Workshop)
Deliver 3 Microcog to Ak'Anon Spy 0/1 (S.H.I.P. Workshop)
Tell Gurtrude you are ready to 'sneak in' to the workshop 0/1 (Fortress Mechanotus)
Once you have the task, go around Fortress Mechanotus and loot several items from crates (you can only do so while in the task):
Steamwork Power Crystal is found in a steel-bound chest. The chest is near the middle of the northeast top floor room, to your right as you head toward the elevators.
Clockwork Metrognome found in a Damaged Crate in the southwest corner of the pit below the MMM entrance ramp.
3x "Microcog" are found in a Singed Crate in the northwest corner room of the top floor, to your left as you approach the elevators.
steel-bound crate: 1651.81, -1382.18, 622.33
Singed crate: 1801.30, 1479.45, 622.25
Damaged crate: 1176.43, 130.42, 544.81
P 1382.1843, -1651.8134, 619.2004, 0, 240, 0, 2, steel-bound_crate_-_Steamwork_Power_Crystal
P -1479.4513, -1801.2980, 619.1290, 0, 240, 0, 2, Singed_Crate_-_3x_Microcogs
P -130.4245, -1176.4349, 541.6852, 0, 240, 0, 2, Damaged_Crate_-_Clockwork_Metrognome
Once you have these items, go to Gurtrude and say to her "sneak in" to zone into the instance.
Once in the instance, take the lift up to the first level. Then use the spiral ramp in the first room to take you to the second level. The spy you are looking for is called Cledmire Drysproket and he can be found in a crawl space in the western wall of the southeast room.
His location is 401.86, 410.33, 235.09.
P -410.3305, -401.8591, 233.0289, 0, 240, 0, 2, Cledmire_Drysproket
To avoid problems, hand in (in order) the 3 unstacked Microcogs, then the Clockwork Metrognome, and then the Steamwork Power Crystal.
You receive 3x "Explosive Device" upon handing in the items.
This completes the first four steps.
Ignite an explosive near the fuel tank in S.H.I.P. 0/3 (S.H.I.P. Workshop)
To find the fuel tanks, head up one more level. There are three pods sticking out from this level. The fuel tanks are big yellow boiler like things. There is one in each of the pods and as the pods have three levels they are easy to miss. The one in the south pod is on the east side of the upper level. The fuel tank in the west pod is on the middle level. The tank in the north pod is on the lower level.
To ignite the explosive device: First clear the area around the fuel tank, then click it. One of the Explosive Devices will disappear from your inventory and a mob called "an explosive device" will appear on the ground nearby. Target this and click the Spark Wheel. It will begin to cast Ignition Spark - this takes 80 seconds. A short time after you placed the explosive device, mobs will start charging the bomb planter.
One add is a named, "Boilermaker", which hits for ~5,000.
Note: With the Mazicul's Magical Makeup effect, you can be non-KOS to these adds (although they'll probably kill the bomb planter anyway).
North fuel tank (down elevator): location 875, 582, 325. (one add reported)
West fuel tank: location 191, 754, 349. (one add + Boilermaker reported)
South fuel tank: location ??? (adds?)
Give the Spark Wheel back to Gurtrude the Spymaster 0/1 (Fortress Mechanotus)
Once done, return to Gurtrude with the Spark Wheel to complete the task.
Your task 'S.H.I.P. Sabotage!' has been updated.
You successfully detonated the devices. Though Gurtrude was a bit unhappy with the lack of structural damage, at least it made a very impressive booming noise!
Your faction standing with Ak'Anon Strike Force V got better.
You have successfully been granted your reward for: S.H.I.P. Sabotage!
