Explorer Plinx is located in northern Winterknell Shore in Cursed Shore. Plinx plans to use his hazmat suit - after repairing it - to get to a pact chopper's nearby landing site, light a beacon as a signal for the chopper to drop him supplies, which he then plans to deliver to Caer Shadowfain camp. He therefore needs your assistance in carrying out these tasks in a series of four events which take place in Fields of Gold between his location and the allied camp.

After he arrives at Caer Shadowfain, Plinx becomes a merchant selling the commonly found salvage kits and gathering tools for a short while, after which he runs back to his starting location to get more supplies.

Talking to Plinx while he waits for players to aid him initially
My hazmat suit experienced a short circuit and landed me on this rock. I've repaired the damages, and the suit has power to launch me to the beach, but I fear it may fail again. That's why I need your assistance.
Talk more option tango.png You need my help for what exactly?
Should I crash on the beach, I'll be swarmed by Risen. I'll need you to protect me while I repair my suit. It's imperative I get off this rock if I'm to continue my mission.
Talk more option tango.png Tell me more about your mission.
My original plan was to land at our chopper's targeted landing zone. Once there, I'd set up a beacon for the chopper to drop supplies, and then I'd carry those supplies to Caer Shadowfain.
Talk more option tango.png You were going to do this all by yourself?
(snort) Should you choose to work with me, you'll quickly find that I'm a force to be reckoned with. Now, I'm growing impatient. Are you going to assist me or not?
Talk ready option.png Yeah, Let's do it!
You've made the right decision. Now stand back. I'm going to launch my suit over to the beach. Be prepared in case the worst should happen.
Talk end option tango.png Okay.
Talk end option tango.png I can't help you right now.
Talk end option tango.png Well, at least the Risen haven't found you yet.
Talking to Plinx in Caer Shadowfain
It's good to see a fresh face around here. You'll find Caer Shadowfain a safe place to catch your breath after battling the Risen. We all do our part to ensure it remains that way.
Talk merchant tango.png What are you offering?
Talk end option tango.png Great. See you around.
