Find the escaped experiments and bring them back to Zaxis is a level 10 dynamic event that occurs in Mabon Market. Researcher Widd is testing his own personal experiment and unintentionally unleashes an army of miniature creatures that are running all over the village. Help him recover the escaped experiments so he can continue his research on skritt.

Once you have caught one or two escaped experiments and returned them to ZXS-705 "Zaxis", you can stand and wait next to the golem. After a few seconds any experiments you have returned to him will escape again (from a hatch in his abdomen). You can pick these up and return them to him, and this counts as a newly returned experiment. This makes completing this event comparatively simple, as you don't need to move at all.





Event start
Researcher Widd: Apprentice! Prepare to test my latest, personal experiment. With this, we'll finally leave that dead-weight krewe behind.
Apprentice Genna: The form-shifting organic ooze lifeform?
Researcher Widd: Of course the F.O.O.L.! What other latest, personal experiments would I be talking about?
Apprentice Genna: What form did you pick this time?
Researcher Widd: One of those strange norn pack animals.
ZXS-705 "Zaxis": Probability—that—this—experiment—will—be—successfull: 9.9—percent.
Researcher Widd: Quiet. I made you; I can unmake you.
Researcher Widd: Open the gate and send it through!
Apprentice Genna: Yes sir!
Apprentice Genna: It's back. And intact!
Researcher Widd: Success!
ZXS-705 "Zaxis": Probability—of—lasting—success: less—than—9.9—percent. And—falling.
Researcher Widd: Uh-oh.
Researcher Widd: That can't be right. Genna, what have you done?
Researcher Widd: Bring those...things...back to the golem.
Randomly while collecting escaped experiments
Researcher Widd: Bring those...things...back to the golem.
Researcher Widd: Don't just stand there. Do something!
Researcher Widd: Don't get too close. But don't let them get away!
ZXS-705 "Zaxis": Where—would—we—be—without—your—help? Answer: dire—straits.
Event completion
Researcher Widd: That's the last of them.
Apprentice Genna: Are you sure?
Researcher Widd: Of course I'm sure. get back to work!
ZXS-705 "Zaxis": Probability—that—all—F.O.O.Ls—were—recovered: 81.2—percent.
ZXS-705 "Zaxis": Probability—that—local—residents—will—resent—our—presence: 14.4—percent.
Researcher Widd: Back to work, I said! And don't mention this to anyone.
