||This solo task is the first of three tasks that begin with Thorbin the Elder in the Cooling Chamber. He is located near -170, -320, -25. |
You say, 'Hail, Thorbin the Elder'
Thorbin the Elder says 'Hello there. You strangers are becoming rather common these days. I guess eventually we'll be the strangers here!' Thorbin smiles broadly. 'You're welcome here as far as I'm concerned. I rather enjoy a change of pace now and then. Not that I have time for much chit-chat these days with all the [troubles] going on down in the chambers.'
You say, 'Troubles?'
Thorbin the Elder says 'I hate to give my problems to others, but I just can't figure out what's going on. I really need someone with fresh eyes to poke around in the chambers and see if you can spot anything amiss. I do feel the need to warn you that not everyone here will be happy to see you. A lot of folks blame you strangers for what's happening here and they won't take kindly to seeing you. If you're willing to take a risk I could really use your help. If we don't figure out what's wrong our glacier will melt. We really don't want that to happen, trust me on that. Can you [look into it] for us?'
You say, 'I will look into it'
Thorbin the Elder says 'Thank you! Good luck to you, and to us.'
You have been assigned the task 'It's Getting Hot in Here'.
You have been tasked by Thorbin to look into why the water has not been cooling as it should.
See if you can find out what is causing the problems. Is there something wrong with the mechanism of the chamber itself, or is someone committing sabotage?
- Find why the water is not as cool as it should be 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)
This is trickier than it sounds. Head southwest toward the first lake and spend your time hanging round the traitorous laborers you find in the rooms around the lake. Several /locs have been given as working for this stage:
-1050, 404, -212
-1000, 376, -221
-760, 74, -193

You do seem to need a roaming traitorous laborer nearby to get the update:
You notice the traitorous laborer acting suspiciously.
- Watch carefully to see what they are doing 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)
Just stand still until you get the emote:
The traitorous laborer notices you as it pours the firewater into the reagent.
He will then attack you.
- Kill 1 traitorous laborer 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)
Task Window Says: Defend yourself and kill the laborer.
Any traitorous laborer will do. If you die trying to get the one that aggro'd, you can run back and kill any of them in the zone.
- Tell Thorbin what you witnessed 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)
Task Window Says: Let Thornbin know what you observed.
You say, 'Hail, Thorbin the Elder'
Thorbin the Elder says 'That is not good. That could ruin the whole system. It is necessary for the cooling of the worlds that this water be cold. Since you are already helping me, I will need you to gather supplies to make a counteragent. You will need some caveflower pollen, pure cooling reagent powder, and stonegrind solvent. You will also need to get plans from one of the traitorous workers to be sure you get the mix correct. This device will help you find the pure reagent powder.'
You receive a clicky item called "Cooling Chamber Navigational Assistant".
Task Window Says: Collect the parts to make a counter agent against the corrupted reagent. Thorbin has left you instructions.
- Collect some Caveflower Pollen 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)
These are found as groundspawns underneath the flowers you see around the zone.
- Collect some Pure Cooling Reagent Powder 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)
The device Thorbin gave you will lead you to the correct barrel that holds the pure cooling reagent powder. Head to the barrel room (it's the southernmost of the deadend rooms off the Pellucid Grotto lake). Move round each of the barrels in turn and click the device, it won't break invis, until you see:
The barrel you need should be right in front of you.
/open that barrel and loot your powder.
- Collect some Stonegrind Solvent 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)
This is a very common drop of the various oozes in the zone.
- Find some Reagent Corruption Plans 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)
Task Window Says: You need the plans to know exactly what mixture you need to undo the work.
These appear on your cursor when you kill a traitorous worker.
- Create 1 Purifying Cooling Reagent using tradeskills 0/1 (The Cooling Chamber)
Create the purifying cooling reagent in a reagent mixing chamber that you can find in the cooling chamber. It should be located near one of the large pools in the chamber.
Combine the four items you just gathered in one of the retort shaped containers scattered around the zone. There are a couple on the shore of the Pellucid Grotto lake and the rooms off it.
You have fashioned the items together to create something new: Purifying Cooling Reagent.
- Deliver 1 purifying cooling agent to Thorbin the Elder 0/1 (The Cooling Chambers)
You have found one possible cause of the troubles, and have helped with a possible solution.
