Portal Peacemaker[edit]

After completing one of the invasions, you will receive a mail from Mechanist Ninn asking to meet you in your Home instance (any of them will do, even if it's not your race's). He'll ask you to retrieve 50 Mithril Ingots, 3 Charged Quartz Crystals, a Resonance Tuner, an Etheric Tank, and a Gate Alchemeter. You can also speak to him about some background on the portals.

Gather the materials and collect the three items.

  • Resonance Tuner - Speak to Glaxx at
    Waypoint (tango icon).png
     Ulta Metamagicals Waypoint . He should send you north to Enrav Exploration Post and you can retrieve it from the Asura Device Container there.
  • Etheric Tank - Speak to Danka in the asura lab at
    Waypoint (tango icon).png
     Valance Tutory Waypoint. She will sell you the Etheric Tank for Gold coin.
  • Gate Alchemeter - Speak to Gate Operator Stebben at the Asura Gate in Stronghold of Ebonhawke (closest waypoint:
    Waypoint (tango icon).png
     Hawkgates Waypoint). You should be sent into Last Stand Shelter to retrieve it from the Asura Device Container in the back of the cave.

Return to Ninn with all the items and talk to him to hand them over. He will ask for a day to build the device for you (daily reset). (Note: If your character is an Engineer, an Asura, or a Charr with the Iron Legion biography selected, you will have the opportunity to help him build the device, in which case you receive it immediately instead of waiting for daily reset).

Once finished, Ninn will give you the Phasic Distortion Reader.
