Rata Arcanum is a decrepit colony of Rata Novus that has recently been overtaken by the Inquest. When Rata Novus fell to the chak, the survivors, including Zinn and M.O.X., relocated here. However, two years later they angered the local druids who wiped out the entire colony, leaving only a handful of golems behind.

Beneath the vista are a series of bouncing mushrooms. The lowest bouncing mushroom is to the west of a rock promentory. Use of Oakheart's Reach will help. Alternatively, take the Thermal Tube from Gate of Fire and start gliding at the top of the flight path towards the vista.

Ambient dialogue[edit]

Inquest Magiscientist: Woo-hoo? I guess.
Inquest Magiscientist: You think Balthazar will notice we're more interested in Zinn than serving him?
Inquest Miner: One of the scouts reported a graveyard of Zinn's golems nearby. We need to organize a team to collect their databanks!
Inquest Miner: We'll just do a little excavating while working for Balthazar. What harm could it do?
Inquest Extinguisher: We get closer to finding Zinn's tomb with every day that passes
Inquest Researcher: The data we found indicates he had a device he called a terraformer. Hmmm...Now we can deduce what it was for.
Inquest Grenadier: That confirms it! Zinn was terraforming this cavern. There's an odd combination of nature and un-nature here.
Veteran Inquest Extinguisher: Rata Arcanum... A rata in its earliest stages of development. What a discovery!
Veteran Inquest Extinguisher: There’s a story here. If only Zinn had managed to finish Rata Arcanum. It could have been an incredible research center.
