Enter the Magnetics Lab from the west side, via a staircase behind the heart vendor, and pick up a Magneton Hammer. The hammer has three abilities: (1) sends out a projectile toward your target that will pull you toward it, (2) is a combat skill, and (3) cancels the magnetic pull effect of skill (1).

There are eight Magneton Particles suspended in the air among Magneton Capacitors. You want to use ability (1) with a Magneton Capacitor targeted to pull yourself toward a Magneton Particle, using (3) to fall. Keep in mind that (1) is a projectile and adjust your timing accordingly.

Alternatively, you can use a mount such as the Skyscale to reach them, but Gliding is disabled in the area.

Magneton Hammer skills[edit]

# Skill Activation time Recharge time Description
1 Attractor Pulse.png Attractor Pulse 0.5½ Fire an attractor pulse at your target. If your target is mechanical, the skill creates a strong force of attraction that pulls you in.
1 Redirect Arrow.pngElemental Requiem.png Magneton Siphon 0.75¾ 10.5½ Siphon energy from a nearby glowing magneton capacitor to charge the magnetic blast skill.
2 Magneton Blast.png Magneton Blast 0.5½ Launch a powerful magneton blast at your targeted area. Damage is greatly increased against mechanical targets. Obtain ammo by siphoning power from glowing magneton capacitors.

  • Although gliding is disabled in the Magnetics Lab, mounts are not. The entire area is subject to a powerful updraft-like effect, and the eight magneton particles can be easily collected via griffon using the dive ability.
  • Alternatively, a skyscale can easily reach the magneton particles.
