Steps[edit | edit source]

broken robot part

  1. Collect 8 broken robot parts from inside the Sanctum of the Scaleborn. These are small smoking grey piles that seem to spawn throughout the zone.
  2. Return to Bilgeron

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Note[edit | edit source]

Parts are located along stairwells and hallways throughout the zone. The zone is easier early, most of mobs in the first areas are 62, pairs of 62v, seldom 62^.

Note[edit | edit source]

Despite the description, this is NOT really a Level-62 'solo', at least as-of 2019. To get through the right-hand door on the far side of the chamber you have to defeat two ^^^62 Heroic mobs at once, and just inside is another ^^^Lvl-62, then the hall is lined by pairs of ^^^Lvl62 mobs up-to the Aegis chamber. It's the same when you open the door on the left-side - that corridor is lined with pairs of ^^^62 Heroic mobs, all in agro range of the few moubds of steaming-dirt that you are looking for. At Lvl-67 with a full set of gear and abilities, firing all the Heroic Opportunities the game offered and using the AOE's as they came live, I was still only just able to defeat a pair of ^^^Lvl-62's at a time - what makes it not a solo for a 62 is that the respawn rate means you end-up trapped and under-powered by the time you regen.

To deal with this I used a method method suggested by a writer below, and picked-up the 3 easy ones, zoned out and zoned back a few times picking-up the slow-rate re-spawn of the piles while killing the regular Lvl-62 mobs until I got all 8 pots in the Mouth chamber. It's not pretty and it's time-consuming, but that was the only way I could solo it.

My guess is, either someone messed-up at Daybreak, or the level-ranging for this quest has been under-estimated by people who came with friends.

Note[edit | edit source]

In fact the parts spawn quite frequently and many times the first part encountered is just inside the Sanctum entrance doors on the right, before the stairs and any MOBs. The aggro can be handled by a middle equipped level 65 solo, more so with good ranged and little difficulty if stealthed. If the aggro gets too heavy then "escape" back to the entrance and with luck another part will have spawned, rest until health and power recharged then go again.
