Head to the nearest Oil Reclamation Pump to acquire the Oil Reclamation Pump special action skill. Oil elementals will continuously spawn and their attacks will create patches of slippery oil on the ground, which can be vacuumed with the special action skill. The vaccuum skill can be used while mounted, and being on a mount will ignore the slipperyness of the oil patches. A bar above your character will indicate how much oil you are holding. Return to the Oil Reclamation Pump to empty your oil.






Event start[edit]

At the northwest drill
Braham: Ah, there's the oil we need! Just ...maybe not so much of it? And maybe not so fast?
Braham: There's got to be some way to contain this, right?
At the southwest drill
At the southeast drill
Miner Mikhail: Volatile magic got into the oil! The drills weren't made for this!
Rox: This...looks bad.
Miner Mikhail: Where are the emergency cleanup crates? Quick, break out the equipment, and mop up the spill!
When current drill cleanup is done
This drill's spilled oil is sufficiently reclaimed. Assist at another drill.

Event success[edit]

At the northwest drill
Braham: That looks better. Good work, us.
Braham: Oh, this is bad. And Rox is over there!
At the southwest drill
Boticca: An end to the blight. And plenty of oil to use.
Boticca: That, over there. That doesn't look good. Olmakhan, with me!
At the southeast drill
Miner Mikhail: There. Redirected the flow into that basin. Solid rock underneath—no way the oil will leak into the sea now.
Rox: Thanks. Thought we were in trouble there.
Rox: What was that?
Miner Mikhail: Whatever it is, I'll bet you it's counterrevolutionary.
