Recover parts from Potter's Field

Doc Buzzsaw

I do a great deal of work, and not just for my friends within the Freakshow. Miners, workers, evenmembers of groups such as the Sky Raiders and Arachnos; I give aid of my skills to all. Unfortunately, often the desperate men who hite my services cannot afford to pay when the bill comes do. So sometimes I must recover my work from its current owners. Many of them are, understandably I think, reluctant to return the very valuable merchandise they now have, and so I like to employ the occasional freelancer to do this sort of work for me. All you will need to do is recover everything on my list from the current owners.

There are five items I need returned. Defeat the current owners to recover them, or, in two seperate and sad cases, recover the items from their perished bodies. The firs item is a pair of cybernetic eyes I implanted in a Lt. Rafferty of the Council.

I've tried to have my friends among the Freakshow do this sort of thing for me in the past, but in all their exuberance a simple collection all too often ends up as a firefight and then things get damaged. They are quite entertaining, but a bit too rambunctious.

ClueA Grisly List

This is a list of all the items Doc Buzzsaw wants you to recover from his previous clients. The list describes what each item is, and where it can be found.

Part 1: Recover 1st item for Buzzsaw (Get eyes from Rafferty)
Warehouse @ Sharkhead Isle (Freakshow,Council,Scrapyarders,Legacy Chain)

Lt. Rafferty should be in here.

Mission Complete: You got the first item on Doc Buzzsaw's list.

ClueA light collection sack

This sack contains the first item on Doc Buzzsaw's list:

Two cybernetic eyes with infra-red and low-light filters.

Part 2: Recover 2nd item for Buzzsaw (Search body for part)
Office @ Sharkhead Isle

Apparently, this guy died before he could pay. Time to recycle!

Objective: You found the part Buzzsaw needed!

ClueA hefty collection sack

This sack contains the first two items on Doc Buzzsaw's list:

Two cybernetic eyes with infra-red and low-light filters,

And a robotic spinal column, braced for heavy lifting.

Mission Complete: You got the second item on Doc Buzzsaw's list.

Part 3: Recover 3rd item for Buzzsaw (Get arm from Mr. W@nG0-T@nG0)
Sewers @ Sharkhead Isle

You're kind of surprised Buzzsaw is sending you to collect from the Freakshow, but, that's just business.

Mission Complete: You got the third item on Doc Buzzsaw's list.

ClueA heavy collection sack

This sack contains many of the items on Doc Buzzsaw's list, including:

Two cybernetic eyes with infra-red and low-light filters;

A robotic spinal column, braced for heavy lifting;

And a cybernetic arm with heavy hydraulics.

Part 4: Recover 4th item for Buzzsaw (Get legs from Shaderix)
Arachnos Base @ Sharkhead Isle

And a shapely pair of cybernetic legs, modified for stealth and combat.

Part 5: Recover last item for Buzzsaw (Get heart from reliquary)
Abandoned Warehouse @ Sharkhead Isle

Doc's list says this last one is more a recovery than a collection. Seems the last part, a cybernetic heart, was stolen by the Legacy Chain after the previous owner died.

Two cybernetic eyes with infra-red and low-light filters,

Mission Complete: You got the last item on Doc Buzzsaw'a list

Doc Buzzsaw

You return at last, my collector. Excellent! Let me see what you've recovered.

I was wondering where these had gotten to.

Ah, this one should be quite useful.

A bit of cleaning, and this will be ready for re-sale and re-use. Now I see where the design flaw was on this. I'll have to repair and improve that. So much to do.

Now what's this? A shard of red crystal, impaled through this artificial heart. Yet t still works, even after it's power supply has long gone dead. If you'll excuse me, I'll have to take some time to examine this. Speak to me again shortly, I may have same more work based on this.

Absolutely fascinating...


Get cybernetic parts and a large coral crystal for Doc Buzzsaw's project.

Doc Buzzsaw

Dread Tomax, I tell you, I have discovered something astonishing! It seems that many of the items you recovered had microscopic fragments of red coral crystals embedded within them. No doubt, from exposure to red coral crystal found within the mines, or from battling with the unnatural 'Slag Golems' that infest certain parts of the island. Well, what I discovered was that the crystals were amplifying the power of those parts. Isn't it fantastic? It puts me in mind of a new project, but in order to complete it, I will need both more cybernetic parts and a very large fragment of red coral crystal. Fortunately, I know where both can be obtained.

Very good! With your assistance, my SuperFreak will be ready in no time at all! Now, to business:

The Slag Golems are massing to attack the HellForge, lef by one of their number whom my energetic Freakshow friends have termed 'Big Rocky'. I strongly suspect that this 'Big Rocky' may cntain a massive fragment of red coral crystal in order to hold such great sway over others of it's kind. I want you to retrieve this crystal for me. Also, it is likely that several Freakshow have fallen in the fighting. If you run across any, please use this list to gather the components I'm going to need. They won't miss them any longer, and each piece you find will get a second chance at life in my next project: The crystal powered SuperFreak!

Oh, excuse me. I got a bit excited there. Most uncharacteristic. My apologies. I will warn the Freaks there that you will be on scene, and request that they consider you a friend during the battle. That should help to lower the degree of interruption.

ClueA list of Freak components

This is list from Doc Buzzsaw of specific components he needs to complete her 'SuperFreak'. Most of these parts can be found on fallen members of the Freakshow.

Part 6: Recover Parts for Doc Buzzsaw (5 Freak parts to collect, Defeat 'Big Rocky')
Instanced Outdoor [Hellforge, Sharkhead Isle] @ Sharkhead Isle

You can feel the oppressive heat of the Hellforge even from here.

Objective: You found some of the parts on Doc Buzzsaw's list

ClueCollection Sack

This sack contains components Doc Buzzsaw will need to complete his 'SuperFreak'.

Objective: You defeated 'Big Rocky' and took the massive red coral crystal shard that was in his heart.

Clue'Big Rocky's crystal heart'

This large red crystal used to be the central core of the Slag Golem called 'Big Rocky'. Doc Buzzsaw wants to use it to his power his 'SuperFreak'.

Mission Complete: You got all the parts Doc Buzzsaw needs.

Doc Buzzsaw

Excellent! I've been quite busy working on my latest creation while you were out. Wth all that you've gathered, I should be able to complete my 'SuperFreak' post-haste. If you'll excuse me, I must finish my creation while the genius of inspiration is still upon me.


Destroy the SuperFreak

Doc Buzzsaw

Ah. Well. you see, Dread Tomax, there's been a minor set-back. My test-subject, my first SuperFreak, has cruelly batrayed my work and my trust. he has gone renegade, and even now, he gathers together the Slag Golems to destoy me! I fear that he's no longer himself. Perhaps the coral shard itself has taken control? Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaught of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong? Regardless, the necessary solution is clear: Dread Tomax, my SuperFreak must be destroyed!

It will be difficult to destroy my creation. I don't mean that emotionally, I mean it will be physically quite challenging. I'd suggest gathering some cronies to assist you.

I thank you for your assistance, and assure you that you will be compensated. Fortunately, I emplaced a tracking device within my creation's chassis, and so I know his approximate location. You must destroy my SuperFreak, and put an end to this madness.

By the way, if you are planning on charging into this without a small to medium sized group of rogues, I was wondering if you'd thought of what you'd like to have happen to your internal organs once the SuperFreak has ripped them out? I dont' want to be rude, but I could make sure that whatever remains of your body finds one or more new uses through my experiments. Well, think about it, won't you?

Part 7: Destroy the SuperFreak (Defeat the SuperFreak)
Cavern @ Sharkhead Isle

The sound of crashing rocks and mad laughter echo over this desolate place.

Objective: You have defeated the SuperFreak!

Mission Complete: You defeated the SuperFreak

Doc Buzzsaw

She who lives by the cybernetic monstrosity powered by living coral, all too often dies by the cybernetic monstrosity powered by living coral. Fortunately, you have helped me to avoid this fate. I think I shall shelve my plans for the SuperFreak for a time, and instead concentrate on another project. Perhaps mass-producing an army of Tank Freaks? Yes, that would be much safer, and far more useful.


Souvenir: SuperFreak Tracking Device

This small device is useless now, but once you used it to track down Doc Buzzsaw's insane coral crystal powered creation, the SuperFreak. It was all a part of the little exploit you remember as:

Die by the Freak!

The first thing Doc Buzzsaw asked of you was innocuous, if a bit grizzly. Doc needed some cybernetic parts from old patients who were no longer using them, and sent you to get them for her. After you delivered the pieces, she seemed very interested in one piece in particular. An artificial heart tha was now drawing power from a shard of red crystal embedded in it.

Doc needed a large shard of Coral Crystal in order to continue her work, and was willing to pay to get it. She asked you to find a leader among the Slag Golems the Freakshow has dubbed 'big Rocky', and take the red coral crystal shard at it's heart. She also needed you to get some spare parts off of fallen Freaks. The Freaks on scene didnt' seem to mind, and even helped you on Buzzsaw's word.

Doc Buzzsaw created her SuperFreak, powered by the mysterious energy of the Red COral Crystal, and seemed to somehow be surprised when it went insane, vowed to destroy her, and began building up an army of Slag Golems to do so. Lucky for her, she had you on retainer. Using a tracking device Buzzsaw had put in the SuperFreak's chassis, you tracked him down and defeated him.

Doc Buzzsaw seemed briefly chastened by the near disaster and decided to put off work on the SuperFreak to persue a less dangerous goal: Mass producing Tank Freaks.
