Prerequisite Quests: What's Cooking, Furnace Fire, At Its Core, and The Darkness Howls

This shared task can be obtained from Belira Blastil in Gnome Memorial Mountain.

You say, 'Hail Belira Blastil.'

Belira Blastil says, 'It is good to see you return safely, despite your [bravery]. We have been able to discover that something has gone wrong during routine maintenance done one Legion members. What we don't know is if it is intentional, as the Iron Legion maintains their own members. I wonder if the error didn't start with one of their mechanics, something that cuased the mechanic to introduce the problem to others. Regardless of why, we do have a real problem. The Iron Legion ramble on about peace and love and how they want everyone to be happy. When they try to introduce peace to a gnomelike it often destroys them. It also destroys creatures of flesh. Knowing that, I must ask you to [stop] their current plot, which seems to be rather widespread.'

You say, 'Stop'.

Belira Blastil says, 'I hope you can manage it. Whatever they are up to, you'll have to check a lot of places to ensure they are secure. Let me know when you are [ready].'

You have been assigned the task 'Ironing out the Legion'.

You say, 'Ready'.

Belira Blastil says, 'Your assistance is appreciated. The museum is closed briefly to give it a good cleaning, or so I am told. However, I spoke with some of the cleaning crew a moment ago and they know nothing of it. I have suspicions about what might be happening there. Can you investigate for me?'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...

You have entered Gnome Memorial Mountain: Under Assault.




1. Make sure that the museum is safe. 0/1

Head into the museum and to the northern, large room and kill A ticking device. It is immune to damage and does not agro until all 4 "a suspicious lookout" mobs that are surrounding its plinth are killed. They assist each other but are not agro-linked and can be singled. The two flying types are not snareable/rootable, the bipedal ones are. Upon first agro with any of these a 500 second timer starts - "A ticking device shouts, 'My work will be complete in 475 seconds.'". Similar announcements every 25 seconds. Nothing remarkable about the fight with the a ticking device.


2. Make sure that the other wing of the museum is safe. 0/1


Head into the the south portion of the museum and kill three A secretive mechanic. Legendary Clockwork will eventually also agro and must be killed.


3. Stop whatever those Iron Legion mechanics are up to. 0/1

Note: The task can fail here--not sure on the trigger:

As the Iron Legion sparks the mysterious device to life, beams of searing light flash around the museum, destroying it. You barely escape with your lives. Your mission has failed.

Your shared task, 'Ironing out the Legion', has ended.

If no fail, Your task 'Ironing out the Legion' has been updated.

You have been given: Tin Note

As the last of the Iron Legion falls to the floor, a thin roll of metal falls out of a compartment in its mid-section.


4. Check to ensure the gnomelike's supplies remain secure. 0/4

Take the NE passage from the main museum area up into the mountain. You'll come out in the landing room with conveyor belts and a ton of boxes. Open four a suspicious crate, some mobs will agro.


5. Go to security and see if you can learn anything new about the Iron Legion's activities. 0/5

Climb up a level to the area with the circle lighting and the fake clockwork robots in the little nooks. Five or more an ancient security guard spawn, kill 5 for update.

Note: The An ancient security guard fell through the geometry for me and I could never reach. Had to drop mission and start again.


6. Get to the furnace quickly and stop the Legion from breaking anything. 0/10


Climb up another level (loc: 763, 71, 338) and kill 10 mobs in the furnace room. There is a limited amount of time on this part of the task. If the legions damage too much of the furnace, the task will fail.


7. Put an end to the Iron Legion's wayward plans by defeating their leader, Glimmerlove. 0/1


Use the nearby elevator and head to the very top where you'll find Glimmerlove. Some of the nearby clockwork gnomes will agro.


8. Deliver 1 Tin Note to Belira Blastil

Your task 'Ironing out the Legion' has been updated.

A dented chest disappears in a puff of paradoxical smoke.

Upon opening the chest:

Belira will be exceptionally pleased with your efforts to save her people and their sacred task.

Failure

If you kill too many of the non-KoS mobs, you'll get this emote and fail the mission:

You have allowed too many of the defenders to be destroyed. They will surely be overrun now. You have failed.

I received this failure after I was clearing a few mobs at the bottom of the circular ramp leading up to Glimmerlove.

Lesson learned. Don't kill anything you don't need to just because they're in the way. Only kill those foolish enough to aggro on you while you go through the mission.
Step 1 - Not quite right

Step 1 is indeed updated by killing the "A ticking device" however it is immune to damage and does not agro until all 4 "a suspicious lookout" mobs that are surrounding its plinth are killed. They assist each other but are not agro-linked and can be singled. The two flying types are not snareable/rootable, the bipedal ones are. Upon first agro with any of these a 500 second timer starts - "A ticking device shouts, 'My work will be complete in 475 seconds.'". Similar announcements every 25 seconds. Nothing remarkable about the fight with the a ticking device.

5. Get to the furnace quickly and stop the Legion from break

There is a time limit on killing the 10, and they will constantly agro and deagro on you. Very annoying. Boxing I just couldn't get the DPS needed to kill 10 before it timed out on me.

The only real snag in this mission, and some people have called it bugged, is the security area. Set up your group before the electricity room... have one person only enter the lightning, this wakes up one of the Ancient security guards in the cubbyholes. You don't have to go looking for them, they will find you. Kill that one, rinse/repeat til you kill 5.
Now, go around the center lightning area to proceed with the next step. Don't run through the middle of it when you're coming back down, either, as that will wake up more guards who will seek and find you, even after the task is complete.

I failed here 3 times, but have won twice since then. Not sure if this is it, but those times, I killed the Legendary while keeping at least one secretive mech alive, then killed mech after Legendary was dead.

she offered this mission after I completed At Its Core.

She offered At Its Core after Furnace Fire.

She offered Furnace Fire after What's Cooking?

She offered What's Cooking after finishing The Darkness Howls (though, I think they were both offered the first time I talked to her).

Completed step 2:

* Make sure that the other wing of the museum is safe. 0/1

Immediately, a step 3 appeared (missing in write up, above):

Stop whatever those Iron Legion mechanics are up to. 0/1

Upon entry into south room, was aggro'd by 3 "A secretive mechanic" - killed these off, and during this fight "Legendary Clockwork" (yellow con) aggro'd - killed him, too.

During this fight, got the following text:

[Sat Mar 30 13:51:29 2019] A secretive mechanic shouts, 'They have discovered our plans to increase the love. I will begin plan B!'
[Sat Mar 30 13:51:29 2019] A secretive mechanic shouts, 'They have discovered our plans to increase the love. I will begin plan B!'
[Sat Mar 30 13:51:29 2019] A secretive mechanic shouts, 'They have discovered our plans to increase the love. I will begin plan B!'

And then:

[Sat Mar 30 13:52:18 2019] A secretive mechanic shouts, 'I am approaching completion of plan B!'
[Sat Mar 30 13:52:18 2019] A secretive mechanic shouts, 'I am approaching completion of plan B!'

And finally:

[Sat Mar 30 13:52:58 2019] A secretive mechanic shouts, 'Plan B has been enacted!'
[Sat Mar 30 13:52:58 2019] A secretive mechanic shouts, 'Plan B has been enacted!'

Mobs all dead - no update, and so this step seems to have failed as there are no more mechanics to stop, at least that I can find. Possible that mechanics must be killed prior to enacting plan B? I'll update if I glean further info...
