Enter from Dagonscale Hills.

Run into the canyon on your immediate left after zoning into Dragonscale Hills and after a short ways you come to a small encampment and a gigantic mechnanical cannon. This Cannon is your friend.

Run up the ramp on the left side of the cannon and when at the top, you will be at the bottom of the cannon shaft. Step into the shaft, as if you were going to be shot out of it.... more later.. and then click the bottom of the cannon shaft (which is more like a wall since the cannon points up at 45 degrees.

Someone in the back of the wall must hear you because ... BOOM! You're up in the air sailing away and the next zone is loading........

Safe Journeys!

Poking around in that area spawned him at that loc, but he had two guards next to him who prevented me from being about to get the final update. I did get the following update, however.

Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-IV ... Done ... Gyrospire Beza
Deliver Grease to Steamwork Spy MK-IV ... Done ... Gyrospire Beza
Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-V ... Done ... Gyrospire Zeka
Deliver Metal Twine to Steamwork Spy MK-V ... Done ... Gyrospire Zeka
Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-1 ... Done ... S.H.I.P. Workshop
Deliver Battery Casing 3 to Steamwork Spy MK-1 ... Done ... S.H.I.P. Workshop
Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-VI ... Done ... Fortress Mechanotus
Deliver Contraption Parts to Steamwork Spy MK-VI ... Done ... Fortress Mechanotus
Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-VII ... Done ... The Steam Factory
The Spy is missing! Find it at all costs! ... 0/1 The Steam Factory

I was in rogue SoS sneak/hide mode, walking all around him, but did not get the update. Decided to try dropping out of hide really quick, hailing him, and then using Escape to rehide and drop agro, but when I tried that I was dead so fast I wasn't able to have my hail register to get me that last update.


Evidently this last part of this "solo task" will require a group to clear around him after he spawns to make it possible to hail him or something.

On the other hand I did find a new named up in the room just south of where he was. Station Attendant Sparkbolt. He conned red to me and was able to see through my rogue sneak hide ability. I was alone so I don't know anything else about him.

Supplies for Spies Solo Task

I've been working on the Supplies for Spies solo task given by Gurtrude the Spymaster in Fortress Mechanotus. Here are the steps I have so far.

Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-IV ... Done ... Gyrospire Beza
Deliver Grease to Steamwork Spy MK-IV ... Done ... Gyrospire Beza
Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-V ... Done ... Gyrospire Zeka
Deliver Metal Twine to Steamwork Spy MK-V ... Done ... Gyrospire Zeka
Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-1 ... Done ... S.H.I.P. Workshop
Deliver Battery Casing 3 to Steamwork Spy MK-1 ... Done ... S.H.I.P. Workshop
Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-VI ... Done ... Fortress Mechanotus
Deliver Contraption Parts to Steamwork Spy MK-VI ... Done ... Fortress Mechanotus
Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-VII ... 0/1 ... The Steam Factory
??? ... ???

I'm stuck on the "Speak to Steamwork Spy MK-VII" step. Having performed an exhaustive search of the Steam Factory zone I can say I didn't find any Steamwork Spies anywhere in the zone, but the clue that is given in the task window is "MK-VII was last stationed in the primary turbine control room of the steam factory." In what I think is that room I found a steamwork model mob named "a deactivated steamwork" which cons scowling, but which does not attack. This mob is tucked under a platform at loc 514, -76, 100.

Most of the other steamwork spies were on the verge of breaking down when I brought them their supplies, so I'm guessing this mob is the spy I am seeking.

Unfortunately the mob does not respond to hails or any dialog I have tried. I also tried giving him a fairly broad collection of tinkering supplies, but none of them seems to interest him and he just hands them back. I haven't tried them all yet, but I am giving up for now to see if anybody else has had any luck with this step of the quest.

As for the previous spies, all were easily and safely accessible in their zones, and all the items they sought were ordinary tinkering supplies sold in Ak'Anon.

The two spies in the Gyrospires were along the edge of the floating islands.

The spy in S.H.I.P. Workshop was right near the zone in point. As soon as you zone in, look around. He's very close.

The spy in the Fortress zone was in a depression in the grassy area in the western portion of the zone.

I was able to get to a deactivated steamwork fairly easily as a rogue, and didn't actually notice any see invis mobs along the way from any of the zone in points. (I was checking pretty carefully.)

I'd sure appreciate any help anybody could lend on this last step.

The final step in the mission is "The spy is missing! Find it at all costs! 0/1 Steam Factory.

I am in the process of searching right now and will update this post if and when I find him.
After 16 years, I'm not listing every friggin character.

Reavers spawn along the Big wall as you kill the standing mobs a reaver will pop in's it's place. This is a long process for 40 Reavers.That's the wall by the Elevator across the Oil Fields.
quests to beta and zeka

Clockwork Gearmarshal gives out two quest arcs, one of probably four quests to beza tower and one of I believe three to zeka. The beza quests are fairly straightforward with trash and named hitting around 2K, except the last quest which requires you to take oil from the refueling room (click on the barrels in the room with the Fuelmaster and the big pipe in the center to get it), spread it on boxes in the repair room (one floor up, second door on the right, just use the oil next to various things on the room), and find something to light the fuel on fire with. I could not find the lighter, clicked everything and everywhere in the zone, and failed the quest after killing the boss due to this. Beza quests rewards are faction and each of four different amber faycite quadsections. Unable to complete the fourth quest, I do not know what you get when you combine all four quadsections.

Beza quest 1 boss, Chamberlain something or other, spawns an add at 75%, 50%, and 25%. If you wipe and kill / train them away, he will not spawn them again.

Beza quest 2 boss, gardener (don't remember name) casts a medium range AEDD, resisted a couple times with max resist but not often, about 4k + small knockback, interrupts healing, fairly often.

Other beza quest bosses don't have any special effects.

Zeka quest 1, something about cheese, don't remember the name, trash and named are alot tougher and hit for 2700s, backstab for 9k+. First quest, you have to kill a bunch of trash, a couple named with no abilities, and get more oil and coal out of the refueling room, then bring it to the meeting room (one of the side rooms on the first floor, with a big table and plates with cheese on them), then use the oil or coal, doesn't matter which, to poison each cheese. When all 12 cheeses are poisoned, another boss, chamberlain IX spawns in another room on the 1st floor. He has alot of hps but also doesn't do anything special.

Zeka quest 2 just requires more trash killing, a boss with no abilities in the repair room (third floor, second door on the right), and to explore several rooms in the tower. This is best done by a rog or bard. However, the final step of this mission says to turn in the plans to clockwork warmarshal, and I did not get any plans anywhere in this mission, so I could not complete it. Rather annoying after spending several hours clearing these difficult trash mobs.

Zeka missions give faction and sapphire faycite trisections as rewards. Again, do not know what you get for getting all three trisections, as I can't complete mission 2 yet. If anyone figures out how to get the plans on mission 2 or the lighter on beza-4, please let us know.
