How to Start Speak to Didyma at the Gnomeland Security Headquarters in Steamfont Mountains, and ask if you can help with "... celebrating with old friends".

What does this information mean?


You've been asked to find an old friend of Didyma's out in the Moors of Ykesha and ensure she's okay, since she hasn't turned up for the Tinkerfest parties yet.

  1. Head to the Dropship Landing Zone in the Moors of Ykesha and seek out Nell at ( 1744, 453, 794 ) /waypoint 1743.69, 452.56, 794.20.
  2. Return to the Gnomeland Security Headquarters in the Steamfont using the Unstable Tinkered Portal at ( 1780, 453, 837 ) /waypoint 1780.14, 452.72, 837.15. Then head over to Clockwork CXXV where you will see "a stealthy clockwork". It will despawn quickly and drop a wrench on the ground ( -537, 174, 953 ) /waypoint -536.91, 174.08, 953.32. Pick up the wrench.
  3. Return to wrench to Nell in Moors. She will give you a Clockwork Admin Key.
  4. Head back to Gnomeland Security Headquarters in Steamfont Mountains. Target a hidden clockwork at ( -595, 175, 930 ) /waypoint -595.34, 175.30, 930.37 and examine the admin key to use it. You will be teleported into an instanced zone, Admin Level Access.
    • This zone has even-scaled ^^ mobs, called "Geargobbler System," so be careful!
    • While in this zone, you will have a buff on you called "Superuser Access" that increases most of your stats. Caution is still advised, but you will be more survivable against these tough mobs than usual.
  5. Make your way east across the room (you may have to wait for mobs to path away) to the ramps to the upper level.
    • Invisibility and sneak will work here. Going up the southern ramp is the safest.
  6. On the central plank (northern side) of the upper level is the Geargobbler System (an NPC) ( 6, 15, -5 ) /waypoint 5.87, 14.98, -5.39. Go through all of its dialogue options for your update.
    • The safest way to this platform if you don't have invis is a well-aimed jump from the large eastern platform.
  7. Exit the instance through the door you entered from. ( 49, 1, -23 ) /waypoint 48.70, 0.62, -23.35
  8. Return to Nell with the information you've collected.
