    A quick question about the second task:

    The Overvolt fellow says I need a few friends to enter the Mechamatic Guardian. How tough are the mobs? Does one need a full group?

    Yes, I would say so. You will need "the usual collection" of a group (of a decent tank / slower / healer / DPS). CC is only needed if you don't have a splitter, most pulls are 1s or 2s.

    Note that the mobs needed for "soot" are in *after* the first "air column" elevator / teleporter. This means you won't see them for the first hour or so. If you avoid any side-nooks you will get there faster, but the group will want to clear the side nooks for sure, because there can be a mini-named at the end of them.

    The crawl is good exp at least.

    some text

    after hand in

    [Wed Nov 21 10:25:32 2007] Eron has taken what is in his judgment the best of the jewelry you have made, and given the other.
    [Wed Nov 21 10:25:32 2007] You gain experience!!
    [Wed Nov 21 10:25:32 2007] You have been given: Eron's Simple Jewelry
    [Wed Nov 21 10:25:32 2007] Eron Nurwistle says 'This is a fine piece of work. You truly are skilled. For the next task you must be a highly skilled [potter].'

    [Wed Nov 21 10:27:09 2007] You say, 'pottery'
    [Wed Nov 21 10:27:09 2007] Eron Nurwistle says 'Yes. Though Meldrath is brilliant, sometimes odd things happen and unintended, um, events happen. In the guardian some of the soot from the machinery has taken on a life of its own. I believe it is an interaction with the faycite crystals and the magics that he often uses to help his creations have that extra spark. But that is beside the point. The next step in making the jewelry and in my revenge lies within the [guardian].'
    [Wed Nov 21 10:27:23 2007] You say, 'guardian'
    [Wed Nov 21 10:27:24 2007] Eron Nurwistle says 'I am sure you have seen it. It is the great lumbering beast that you see wandering about dragonscale hills. My next task for you is in there. You will need to talk to someone that calls himself Overvolt Rigster. He will know how you can get into the guardian, probably through the maintenance shaft in the foot. Do you want to [enter] the guardian? Since you will need to do some pottery in order to make the extra settings for the jewelry, you must be an expert potter for me to assign this task to you. Overvolt may also require you to bring some friends with you to allow entry into the guardian.'

    [Wed Nov 21 10:27:30 2007] You say, 'enter'
    [Wed Nov 21 10:27:30 2007] You have been assigned the task 'Clay Within the Beast'.

    [Wed Nov 21 10:27:30 2007] Eron Nurwistle says 'Good good. Oh, you have a perplexed look on your face. Did I skip something again? Oh, what do you need pottery for? Simple, or really not so simple, but that is beside the point. When you destroy some of the soot being in the guardian, though they will always leave their soot behind, sometimes it will have just the correct consistency. This soot can then be made into spectacular clay that caries some of the animating forces of the well... soot. When you get the soot, you will make some clay, and then use this clay to make a special set of settings for the jewelry. Incidentally, when you are in the tower, you will need to gather two [crystals].'
    [Wed Nov 21 10:27:54 2007] You say, 'crystals'
    [Wed Nov 21 10:27:54 2007] Eron Nurwistle says 'Yes. It will actually be some of the faycite. This time I will make an exchange. While you are there find two blue gem grade faycite and give one to me. In return I will give you some clear faycite for use in the jewelry.'

    Soot drop rate

    Is the second task supposed to be a bottle neck? It is hard enough getting people to actually want to do the instance, but there are very few soots and they drop 0 to 1 each time. So if you have more than 1 person doing quest, you end up needing 28, 42 or more. Nobody wants to do the basic non-reward instance, and only one of the progression tasks has soots...the 3rd mission is bugged preventing you from completing the line and going back to get that task after you've done it. And then failing the combine makes it that much funner. Is it possible to increase the drop rate on soots?

    You need to kill 5 sentinels and the named. There were only 4 sentinels in the entire zone and 1 warden (same model). They did not respawn after waiting for 2 hours. We were too tired to reget task and check if it was possible for more than 4 to spawn.

    It appears that the last two stages of the quest (Brewing and Tailoring) require level 80 to get the task.

    Stikman - Most of the baking recipes have no precombines, or precombines that are listed in eqtraders.com. Pineapple soy sauce was the only exception. Don't forget to make some skewers for the kabobs.

    If you're doing the fishing/baking stage, be sure to get a couple extra of each fish (at least four extra prawns), he wants twelve of each when you're ready for the turn-in.

    I'm stuck on the smithing Scrap Oil quest, anyone know what drops Magnetized Scrap Metal or Refined Steamwork Oil? I think the adds from the Cog Marauder drop the unrefined oil, not sure if the refined oil is a rare drop from them or not.

    Ah wait, just got some information. The refinery mentioned in the quest is inside the fort in Fortress Mechanotus, go up all the elevators then east side and down to the bottom. The oil is a rare drop off the steamworks there. The west side of the fort is the scrapyard where the Magnetized Scrap Metal drops. Eron's Tertiary Setting is made in the forge, 1 refined magnetized scrap metal + 1 refined steamwork oil + the mold Eron gives you after the turn-ins.

    They all drop in the Crypt
    I will say I completed this part and then time to get your thinking caps on the completed Shadow Counting Book if you read it and you post to follow the instructions. It lost me in the instructions, you have to be working on some locked boxes during a certain time of day only 2 hour time span I think, then have to work on them in certain order
    If I remember I will try and copy down instructions the completed Book says but its long instructions

    Baking section

    I just finished all the turn ins to Eron and all that...Now I have the "Eron's Configuration Pattern" and I have 1 uncut combine star and the jewelry piece of course...Why can I not combine this? What is it combined in or is there something I have to do to the combine star first? I have been trying to combine all 3 in a jewelry kit. I tried crushing it in mortar and pestle and mixing bowl, tried several things.

    Counting Shadows
    -Loot 1 Shadow Counting Page 2 (Crypt of Hills of Shade)
    -Loot 1 Shadow Counting Page 3 (Crypt of Hills of Shade)
    -Loot 1 Shadow Counting Page 5 (Crypt of Hills of Shade)
    -Repair the book with a book binding (Any where)
    -Follow the directions in the book (Hills of Shade)
    ???
    ???
    ???
    ???
    ???

    Shadow Book Says,
    To find the secret of the shadow spike you will need to open the sealed box. To open this box you will need to follow the directions within this book closely. It is advised that you read all of the directions before you proceed, ere you imperil your life.

    To fine the correct box you will need to collect the three shadow boxes. These boxes will be hidden in a shell of wealth. These shells will need to be removed before they can be used. You may only remove these shells when you are near the altar by the pit surrounded by water in the shade. The boxes must be opened in three different manners. The magic of the boxes is such that a particular box does not need a particular opening but instead the order in which you open the boxes decides which method is used to open each box.

    The first box may only be opened when the stars fill the skies. You must use the tools of a Fletcher to work the essence of the stars into the patterns of the box. The second box may be opened any time after the first box has been opened, and for it you must work the spirit of roots into the patterns of the box. For the final box you must have the rays of the sun strike the box you work nectar of peace into the patterns of the box.

    Once all of the shadow boxes have lost their shroud and the light of day has arrived, you must place them on the altar. Though the steps you must take may seem simple, you have but one third of an hour to complete your task, if you do not then all will be lost and even your life may be forfeit. You must do this in the light of day 5am ti 7pm, or your life will be forfeit. It is not necessary that light of the sun actually touches the boxes, as long as it is when the sun is in the sky, fog and cloud only affect positioning, not the requirement that the sun be above the horizon.

    Similar to the way that the specific boxes did not matter in the removing of the shrouds, you do not need to choose a specific box to go first, by placing the box, you will be designating it as the first. Place the first box in the center of the altar. Once it casts a shadow you will be ready to place the second box. The sun will be shining on one side of the box, the west side, east side or the top of the box. To be precise you can divide the day in thirds to decide when this time may be. Step to the side of the altar on the side of the box that is lit by the sun. If the sun is shining on top of the box stand to the east of the altar. Once you are in the proper position you may place the box. Once you have placed the second box, and it has cast its shadows, you may place the third box. Move to the other side of the altar and place the third box. If clouds, fog or other atmospheric effects keep the sun from shining on the box, you must reverse all directions and start on the side of the box that would be shadow if the sun was actually shining on it.

    Now you must choose the correct box. Consider the boxes to be in a circle and when you count from one to two to three back to one then two. So if you start at one, and add five you are in fact at three. Starting at one add the hourly angle that the sun is from the start of a new day. If your reason for opening the box is for another, you must choose the box that casts one less shadow. If you are doing this for yourself you must choose the box with one more shadow. If you are doing this to benefit yourself and another, then you must choose the box as you have counted the hours. Choose wisely. If you make a poor choice death will come for you and all will be lost.

    13 pages of text in that book
    ----------------------------------------
    I have one box I got from a name bird in the zone if I remember right, looking for other 2. once I have all 3 boxes, the instructions in the book kind of confuses me. if you can make a simpliar summary it would be greatly appreciated.
