Notes[edit | edit source]

This is an unlimited repeatable quest. It is a subquest for the main quest, Clockwork Rescue, given by Madria Varas in the Isle of Mara. Madria Varas offers 4 different quests and you can complete any or all of them only once a day. Even if she offers you this quest (or any of the other 3) a second time in the same day, the instance you travel to for the subquest will not be reset and, therefore, you will not be able to complete it until the timer for the quest is reset. The minimum level to get this quest is 50.

  • The heroic tag means this can be completed in a group, but because there is no combat you can solo it if you prefer.

Mass Production can be used to complete this quest quickly

Steps[edit | edit source]

  • In order to complete this quest you have to travel to The Clockwork Workshop in Steamfont Mountains. Click a gear on the ground (labeled Clockwork Workshop Access Hatch) at ( -549, 171, 1047 ) /waypoint -549, 171, 1047 in Gnomeland Security Headquarters. For speedy travel to Gnomeland Security Headquarters and back, buy charms from the NPC, Koros Splinterlimb, in the Isle of Mara. He sells single-use, swift travel charms called Mission Stone of Steamfont and Return to Mara for 6g each. One will take you to the entrance of the tradeskill instance and the other will take you back to the docks of Isle of Mara.
  • Once inside, you will hail Cuthbert Cogsworthy and take the subquest, Clockwork Components. You have the option to complete this subquest a total of 4 times if you choose. Turning it in 4 times is only advantageous if you still need/want the tradeskill XP you get from turning in quests. To determine if you are better served by completing the subquest each time, read the time saving tips below. Your tradeskill level and whether you are working on this mission as a group or solo will effect your decision to hail Cuthbert Cogsworthy only once for the subquest, make all of the items before you turn in the subquest one time (to complete the main quest automatically) or if you should take the subquest 4 times and turn in the items he asks for in rounds. To be clear you need to make 12 each of the 9 items asked for.
  • The recipe book is on the table beside him; click it and scribe it before you begin crafting.
  • Click on the paper next to him and keep Cuthbert Cogsworthy's list of items that appears on your screen open, until everything is complete; doing so makes it easier to search for the recipes at each table. The list will show that you need to make 3 of each item, but more can be made to speed up the entire process. (See time saving tips below.)
  • All materials needed to complete this quest/subquest are located within the zone. Gather them by clicking objects (barrels, boxes, etc.) near crafting stations. Gather more than you need to complete one round of the subquest.
  • To complete the subquest you will be asked to make 3 items on Cuthbert Cogsworthy's list. If you hail Cuthbert Cogsworthy and take the subquest 4 times, you will end up making 12 of each item on his list. His list asks for 9 different items. While this task can be carried out in this manner, there are ways to speed up the process considerably.
  • To complete the main quest from the Isle of Mara, you actually only need to hail Cuthbert Cogsworthy one time. Ignore the red book that appears over his head (to turn in the quest when you've made 3 items) and complete multiples (at least 12) of each item on the list. This will give you less tradeskill XP if you are not at max level, but it makes completing the quest much faster. If you choose to only hail Cuthbert Cogsworthy once and make all of the items in multiples, the feather above his head for the subquest will still reappear again. Wait for a little while, because the main quest will take time to update and auto-complete.
  • Time saving tips for solo and group missions:
  • Complete all the items at once, unless you are under max tradeskill level (95) and want the XP for completing the quest in stages, by turning in the needed items in rounds of 3 as shown in the subquest and Cuthbert Cogsworthy's list. Getting the subquest 4 times and making the items in rounds is only advantageous for tradeskill XP gain, but doing so makes the process extremely time consuming unless you are working on this with a group of crafters.
  • Because the difficulty of making the items is much greater at lower levels, the ideal group for this special zone is best suited to have at least one artisan from the following tradeskill subclasses: Outfitter, Craftsman, and Scholar.
  • Within these crafting instances Mass Production, a Tradeskill Prestige ability, or the item The Hand of the Maker can be used to make multiple items at one time. With mass production, these can be made in multiples of 5 or 15 at once. To complete the main quest and the subquest, 12 of each item on Cuthbert Cogsworthy's list is required, but making more than needed is considerably fast compared to making each item one at a time and picking up and turning in the subquest in several rounds that asks for multiples of 3.
  • When you have all of the items made, then hail him and turn in the subquest. You'll notice that if you click the list of needed items next to him again, you will see negative numbers for each item, meaning that you have completed all of the items. Sit back and watch the Epic 100x4 robot have a death match. Once your creation is victorious, a treasure chest will drop near the defeated clockwork on the ground floor. The entire quest (including the main quest from the Isle of Mara) will auto-complete.
