Daily visitors give interesting assignments

Mechagon is all about discovery. You will be sent into an area that is full of enemies, treasures and new things. That's why there are so few quests to do in Rustbolt once you've completed all of the introductory tasks. This is different in Nazjatar, where you get daily quests, for example to get mana pearls and reputation. You won't find world quests in Mechagon either, because there is only one: kill three rare enemies or open a certain number of treasure chests.

On Mechagon, once you have completed the main tasks, you mainly get quests from the daily visitors. There are a total of 32 visitors who appear at different locations in Rostbolzen and the surrounding area. They then ask you to do certain things, such as connecting power cables in the junkyard.

Unlock daily visitors

In order to lure the daily visitors to Mechagon at all, you have to build the Rustbolt Inn. For this you have to bring the blueprint: Rustbolt dispenser to Pascal-K1N6. You can find this blueprint at the rare enemy Sea Spit in the west of Mechagon.

Build constructions and get support

If you are on the Mechagon, you will find certain constructions from time to time. You can build this up with the help of spare parts and energy cells. These are opportunities to build something together in Mechagon. If you find one of the broken devices, you can assemble it together with other players. Like the buildings on the war fronts. You can also build some constructions on your own. But for larger projects you need several players.

There are only two specific projects available per day. To find out which ones are available on a day, talk to the Gnomin Waren piston heart, who is very familiar with all the constructions. It also explains to you that the locations of the devices change during the day. With the help of the right tools, you can even extend the runtime that a construction has when it has been completed. In general, you can see on the robot's buff bar how long it will last.

There are five different constructions on Mechagon:

  • drilling machine: Opens locked caves in which rare enemies, treasure chests and other things can be found.
  • Recovery tower: Attracts enemies and starts a public event. You shouldn't tackle this alone, because the opponents are getting stronger and stronger and will kill you with a high probability!
  • Rustbolt's Arsenal: Get a random weapon that gives you a special ability. The anti-gravity backpack lets you fly if you have not yet activated your flight license.
  • Flame cannon: Deal damage to nearby enemies.
  • Charging station: Charges empty energy cells and converts them into energy cells.

Self-made Mechaspider - Quest series by Römms

In Rostbolzen there is Recycler Römms, whom you should help with some tasks. Once you have completed all quests, you will receive the scrap-forged mech spider mount as a reward. You repair this through the individual tasks that the gnome gives you.

The repair of the mech spider takes 12 days. It is possible to complete one of the quests per day. The first task will be available immediately after completing the Mechagon introductory quests. If you want to get the spider as quickly as possible, you should also start directly with the Romans quest series. At the end you will also get the achievement "A self-made mount".

And much, much more!

That's not all that awaits you on Mechagon. For example, there are a number of other achievements that deal with collecting and finding things. Among other things, you can collect and set up 14 Azerothminis, which grants the achievement "In the collecting fever". There is a secret fishing success "The secret fish of Mechagon", for which you can first go fishing.

Only the strongest wins and takes the loot home! There are also tons of new pets to catch, new pet challenges and of course new companions for the hunters among you.
