  • You need to be a lvl 100 crafter to start the quest.
  • You must have finished The Captain's Lament to receive the mail that starts the Quest
  • You need to be able to fly


Crafting during these quests can kill you, so pay attention to your reaction arts during the crafting process.

Signs a recipe is dangerous include:
  • The NPC tells you that a crafting combine is dangerous or that you should be very careful
  • Reaction names that start with words like "Lethal" and "Catastrophic" and "Critical Channelling Instability"

Merchants here will not sell you fuel until you reach at least -25,000 faction, nor can you use the banks or brokers until you reach adequate faction, so be sure to bring all supplies with you to save time. See the Needed Materials section for a list.
