  • At your indication that you are braced for the trials ahead, Nimie divulges a few additional details as to what will be expected of you─most harrowingly, that a significant quantity of coating is required for your tool, and that you must provide no small number of materials accordingly. You had best take up your dragonsung tool right away if you are to present Denys with enough supplies for his goblin team.
※Please note that you may not proceed with a class or job that is different from when you accepted this quest.
  • Your toil is rewarded with pot upon pot of mysterious gobbiegoo, and at last you are able to present Nimie with a sufficiency of the substance. Thankfully, she makes short work of applying it, and you are soon the proud─albeit slightly disgusted─owner of an augmented dragonsung tool. Loftier heights await, however, as she and the other Skysteel engineers have more plans in store!

What will you do?
Undertake this quest as another job. Undertake this quest as an Armorer.
Let's get to work, shall we? To review, the dragonsung tool you currently hold in your hand represents the third phase of the upgrade process. It started life as a prototype, which was upgraded to a proper Skysteel tool, then altered once more to take its current form.

At the moment, we possess the know-how and resources to upgrade it as far as the fifth phase─two phases beyond where it stands now.

If you're here for more work, you won't hear any complaints from me. To review, the dragonsung tool you currently have in hand represents the third phase of the upgrade process.

For phase four, so to speak, we'll need an absolutely massive amount of the aforementioned goblin-made gunk. Which means you'll have to provide easily pulped, mashed, and otherwise pulverized materials for their use in equal measure.
For phase four, so to speak, we'll need an absolutely massive amount of the aforementioned goblin-made gunk. Which means you'll have to provide easily pulped, mashed, and otherwise pulverized materials for their use in equal measure.
And remember─you'll want to make use of your dragonsung tool. The so-called bond between tool and wielder aside, we'll need to measure your wear patterns for future designs.
As he mentioned, Denys will be chained to his post in the manufactory for the foreseeable future, so it should be easy enough to find him once you have the materials─or before, should you need further clarification as to their nature.
Once you have a sufficiency of the substance in question, bring it to me together with the tool itself. I'll see that it's safely and properly applied, and you'll walk away with a cutting-edge creation like none have ever seen. Or smelled. But never mind that.
Feeling a bit at a loss, friend? I can hardly blame you─the process is not a simple one. Let us review: the first thing we ask of you is to procure the necessary raw materials by putting that tool of yours to good use.
Once you have a sufficient quantity, deliver them to Denys inside the manufactory─his team of goblins will liquefy them in due time. Present the pots of goo you receive in exchange to Nimie along with the tool in question, and she'll see the process completed.
All ready, you say? Excellent. I hope it wasn't too much trouble for you to track down all those obscure materials. In any event, if you wouldn't mind parting with your tool and the copious amounts of goo you presumably have on your person, I'll get right to work.

Curious indeed. I can't wait to get back to my workshop and take a closer look. The job shouldn't take long, so why don't you just wait here?

Apologies for the delay, but I suspect you'll find it was worth the wait. Behold: your dragonsung tool now looks and works─and smells─like never before! I must say, this process was as educational as it was inspiring. You have my thanks for moving things along.
You have my gratitude as well. With your cooperation, my colleagues and I have achieved a true technological breakthrough that would never have been possible otherwise.
Thanks to your efforts, we've reached another milestone toward realizing the full potential of our tools.
But I'm certain you'd rather see for yourself. Take your augmented dragonsung tool with our blessing─and may it serve you well.
