All professions


After the initial cinematic with Zojja, you will be in a golem suit with a special set of skills. You will not be able to use your normal weapon or utility skills for the duration of the quest. Walk down the hill and ambush the Inquest, who are fighting Mr. Sparkles. After all the Inquest have been defeated, Teyo will appear in a golem suit of her own. When she is defeated, grab the artifact.





Asura (Inquest)



Upon entry to the instance:

Zojja: All right, Savant. You've impressed me so far, but it's time to raise the stakes. It's the two of us against a whole Inquest caravan.
Zojja: We need an edge, and I've got one right here. Think you can handle one of my special golem rigs?
<Character name>: Are you kidding? I took my first steps as a golem pilot the same day I learned to walk with my feet.
Zojja: Good. Suit up and get yourself situated. They'll be here soon.
<Character name>: I'll be ready. But how do we keep them contained? If they run—
Zojja: They won't get far. I've had Mr. Sparkles set up a blockade on the bridge. Once they're in position, they'll have nowhere to go.

Speaking with Zojja:

Zojja: The best thing about ambushing the Inquest is that they always look so surprised. They can't imagine someone treating them like they treat everyone else.
Talk end option tango.png I have to disagree. The best thing in this case will be retrieving our stolen artifact.

If the Inquest defeats Mr. Sparkles:

Inquest Operative: All right, you feebs. You're going to hold this position and you're going to stay alert.
Inquest Operative: Dig in, start clearing away this rubble, and shut up. I'm sending for reinforcements now.

During the fight with Teyo:

Teyo: You didn't really think to catch me off-guard, did you? I invented back-stabbing ambushes!
Teyo: Zojja my dear, I'm going to enjoy squashing your pretty, little head far too much.
Teyo: You win...but I'm still smarter than you!

Speaking to Mr. Sparkles:

Mr. Sparkles: Standing—by—to—remind—the—Inquest—of—the—pecking—order, as—Zojja—would—say.
Talk end option tango.png Sounds good to me.

After defeating Teyo and retrieving the artifact:

<Character name>: That's the third piece. I don't know exactly what this thing is, but at least now it's complete. What do you think, Zojja?
Zojja: I think I recognize that symbol and the design aesthetic. Both belong to one of the greatest geniuses who ever lived.
Zojja: Unless I miss my guess...and really, what are the odds of that...this artifact we've been piecing together is the key to Gadd's lab.
<Character name>: Gadd? He's a legend. At college, we Statics students spent a whole year studying his work. Nobody's been inside his lab for centuries.
Zojja: That's about to change. Not a bad day's work, eh? Inquest: defeated. Artifact: recovered. Access to a historical treasure trove: acquired.
Zojja: I need to return the golem rigs to my workshop. Meet me at Gadd's lab, and we'll be the first to see what he's been hiding all these years.

Speaking to Zojja:

Zojja: The key to Gadd's lab—this is major.
Talk more option tango.png What do you know about Gadd?
He was a legend. One of the most brilliant, most accomplished, and crankiest geniuses ever. When he died while defending the old G.O.L.E.M. foundry, everyone assumed his secrets died with him.
Talk end option tango.png And we'll be the first to see what Gadd left behind. I'll meet you there.
Talk end option tango.png I can't wait to see what's inside. I'll meet you there.

Speaking to Mr. Sparkles again:

Mr. Sparkles: Analysis—says—the—artifact—is—now—complete. Practical—application—of—artifact—still—pending.
Talk end option tango.png Don't worry. Zojja and I know what to do with it.

My story[edit]

Applied Development Lab loading screen.jpg

Zojja, Mr. Sparkles, and I ambushed the Inquest caravan that was transporting the last piece of the artifact. Teyo tried to stop us with her own squad of golems, but they were no match for us. The complete artifact turned out to be a key to Gadd's lab—Gadd, one of the most impressive and famous geniuses in history. We decided to use the key and find out what secrets Gadd's lab still holds.
