Fun Facts[edit | edit source]

When booting up, before turning into an attackable mob, the Opticron says 2 things in Tik-Tok. When this quest was first put in the game, the language was not available to players, but nearly all clockwork mobs and NPCs spoke in it. The language was later made available to players via a quest in Moors of Ykesha when The Shadow Odyssey launched.

For those of you who don't want to wait to get the language, then come back for this quest, here is what the NPC says:

\aNPC 12655222 Opticron:Opticron\/a says in Tik-Tok, "Opticron Status: 99%."
\aNPC 12655222 Opticron:Opticron\/a says in Tik-Tok, "Aberrant Battle Module Configuration: Online. Initiate Annihilation Mode."

The NPC then spins around, "killing" the clockworks that came to its aid, then turns into the Named Monster Opticron
