When event starts
Agent Zildi: Couplings are active! It's function...wait, this isn't right.
Agent Zildi: Ah, it's tethered into the network. I need time to override the link. Whatever you do, don't destroy it.
Agent Zildi: Give me more time to reprogram the automaton. Keep it occupied.
H.O.X.: Activating—integrated—defenses.
When event ends
Agent Zildi: Access granted! (sigh) I dread what sort of illogical technology awaits us in that decrepit facility.
H.O.X.: Welcome—to—Rata—Novus. How—may—I—be—of—assistance?
Agent Zildi: It's operational. Good. Even these ancient models could interface with their city's central processor.
H.O.X.: Correction! This—unit—objects— to—term—"ancient." I—utilize—the—latest—advances—in—golem—design.
H.O.X.: I—am—equipped—with—a—Mark—II—power—relay.
Agent Zildi: Mark II? Ha! My childhood toys were equipped with Mark VI power relays, and those were hand-me-downs!
H.O.X.: Insult—detected. Activating—sulk—mode.
Agent Zildi: Oh, don't be like that. It's not your fault you've been buried down here for centuries!
Agent Zildi: I need you to activate the central processor and set my friends and I to friendlies in the defense matrix.
H.O.X.: Accessing—central—processor.
H.O.X.: Warning! It—has—been—55,847—days—since—I—last—installed—updates. There—are—103,931—updates—ready—to—install.
Agent Zildi: You have got to be kidding me!
H.O.X.: Rebooting—and—installing—update—1—of—103,931.
Agent Zildi: Wait! No! Don't reboot! Cancel! Abort! Argh!
Agent Zildi: Our "helper" here has initiated a full reboot process. In the meantime, the perimeter defenses are down.


  • Most of the golem's damage comes from projectiles, so skills that absorb or reflect projectiles are useful. A Revenant can negate a large amount of the golem's damage by placing their tablet on top of the golem and using  Protective Solace.png Protective Solace.
  • The timer stops if Zildi is downed, and will resume upon her revival.


  • The 'updating' dialogue is most likely a reference to Microsoft Windows Update (automatic updates) of which users complained that it updates and reboots their computer without asking.
