Weapons & Armor / Making AI Armor / Combined Armor
September 13, 2004, 07:43:07 pm
Version 1.2
- Guide Created - Sidy
- Added Images and more details - Herodotus2
- Added Skill Requirements - Herodotus2
- Added Item Drop / Purchase Locations - Herodotus2


NOTE: You will need to complete the Social Clothing Quest a Maximum of 14 times for a full set of combined armor !!!  :shock:  :( ,  so you may find this utility handy. Its a map for AO of all the Social Clothing quest NPC's.  

http://ai.shadow-realm.org/viewtopic.php?t=176

Items you will need to farm from alien drops



...  of course you could always wait until it starts appearing on the forums since the armor isn't NODROP :D

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step1
Requirements : 4.5 x QL of the viral bots in CL and NP.
NOTES: Kyr'Ozch Atomic Re-Structuralizing Tool - Alien Drop, Kyr'Ozch Viralbots - Alien Drop


+ =

Kyr'Ozch Viralbots + Kyr'Ozch Atomic Re-Structulazing Tool = Memory Wiped Kyr'Ozch Atomic Viralbots
[/list]
Step2
Requirements : 6 x QL in Nano Programming.
NOTES: Nano Programming Interface - Bazzits shop or regular shop


+ =

Nano Programming Interface + Memory Wiped Kyr'Ozch Atomic Viralbots = Formatted Kyr'Ozch Viralbots
[/list]

Step3

Requirements : For Both Step 3 & 4
Mutated Biomaterial Requires 7 x Chem
Pristine Biomaterial 4,5 x Chem
NOTES: Kyr'Ozch Structural Analyzer. This tool is made by combining Field Quantum Physics All-Purpose Tool + Kyr'Ozch Atomic Re-Structuralizing Tool --This takes 600QFT to accomplish. Or you can get the tool by doing Uncle Bazzits quest.

Kyr'Ozch Structural Analyzer + Solid Clump of Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material = one of several random results :

  • Kyr'Ozch Viral Serum (used with bio-comm'd manteze nasal membrane to make same ql immunity system for buildings)
  • Any one of the Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material - Type X's for weapons upgrades.
  • Mutated Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material
  • Pristine Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material

Solid Clump of Kyr'Ozch Biomaterial - Alien Drop[/size]



+ =

Kyr'Ozch Structual Analyzer + Solid Clump of Kyr'Ozch Biomaterial= Mutated Kyr'Ozch Biomaterial
[/list]
Step4
Requirements : 7 x QL in Chemistry.
NOTES : Uncle Bazzit's Generic Nano-Solvent - Bazzits shop


+ =

Mutated Kyr'Ozch Biomaterial + Uncle Bazzit's Generic Nano Solvent = Generic Kyr'Ozch DNA Soup
[/list]

Step5
Requirements : 6 x QL in Pharma-Tech.
NOTES: Essential Human DNA - Bazzits shop


+ =

Generic Kyr'Ozch DNA Soup + Essentinal Human DNA = DNA Cocktail
[/list]

Step6

Requirements : 6 x QL in Pharma-Tech

+ =

Formatted Viralbots + DNA Cocktail = Kyr'Ozch Formatted Viralbot Solution
[/list]
Step7
Requirements :

+ =

Kyr'Ozch Formatted Viralbot Solution + Basic <insert armor piece> (from basic clothing quest) = Formatted Viralbot <insert armor piece>
[/list]

Step8
Requirements : 6 x QL in Psychology
NOTES: Arithmetic/Strong/Enduring/Spiritual/Observant/Supple Viralbots are alien drops.  


+ =

Arithmetic/Supple/Enduring/Observant/Strong/Spiritual Viralbot's (only must use 1 of them) + Formatted Viralbot <insert armor piece> = Alien Armor ( Arithmetic/Supple/Enduring/Observant/Strong/Spiritual Armor )
[/list]

To make the combined armor you will need 2 complete sets of different armor ( See Chart Below ) and then combine them to complete the combined armor process.

Strong Body Armor + Supple Body Armor = Combined Commando's Jacket
Strong Body Armor + Enduring Body Armor = Combined Mercenary's Jacket
Spiritual Body Armor + Arithmetic Body Armor  = Combined Officer's Jacket
Spiritual Body Armor + Enduring Body Armor = Combined Paramedic's Jacket
Observant Body Armor +  Arithmetic Body Armor = Combined Scout's Jacket
Observant Body Armor + Supple Body Armor =  Combined Sharpshooter's Jacket

Bit of fun for you all. Website stats. can be viewed here.

Quote Khalem


    Some fun stats so far

    Until Aug 31st we averaged 1000-3000 hits per day.

    On august 31st we skyrocketed up to 43k hits.

    On launch day, Sept 1st, 479198 hits

    Unsuprisingly 99.2% of our visitors are running some form of Windows, while only 85% are using Internet Explorer, followed by Mozilla, Opera, Netscape and Firefox gobbeling up most of the remaining 15%

    And finally, the oddest search phrase to have ended up leading someone to the site was: "big bang"

    Target process is
Kyr'Ozch Atomic Re-Structuralizing Tool + Field Quantum Physics All-Purpose Tool = Kyr'Ozch Structural Analyzer, thus avoiding having to do the bazzit quest for it.

Aforementioned Kyr'Ozch Structural Analyzer + Solid Clump of Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material = one of several random results it seems:

  • Kyr'Ozch Viral Serum (used with bio-comm'd manteze nasal membrane to make same ql immunity system for buildings)

  • Pristine Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material

    Mutated / Pristine Bio-Material + Uncle Bazzit's Generic Nano-Solvent = Generic Kyr'Ozch DNA-Soup, perhaps for armor of some sort as per thread mentioned above.

    Does anyone know the full process of making the new armor types introduced with the AI expansion?

    I believe parts of the process might be to first loot a "Solid Clump of Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material". I am not sure how the conversion if done but I think it might be with the tool you get from the "Uncle Bazzit" quest. If you are lucky you will end up with "Mutated Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material". Combine "Uncle Bazzit's Generic Nano Solvent" with "Mutated Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material" to produce "Generic Kyr'Ozch DNA-Soup". This is where the information from the public forums end. I believe that "Essential Human DNA" might be what we should combine with the "Generic Kyr'Ozch DNA-Soup" somehow. But where does the "Essential Human DNA" drop? If anyone has crafted any alien armor please post how you did it and what was produced.

September 06, 2004, 11:55:37 am
Reward : Body Heat Pattern Analyzer

This tool is used to process the Bio Mesh material so that it utilizes its full potential when it comes to regulating body heat.




NOTE: Before you start the quest you will need one of these "Personal ID Data"



To make it combine an ID-Extracter and an Expendable Hologram Camera.  ( Both Store Purchaseable )



  • Talk to Investigator Marciello
    Pos: 1590.3, 2817.6, 31.4, Area: Meetmedere Forest. UTC: Mon Sep 06 09:51:06 2004 ( Next to save term. )

    He's investigating a crime. A bartender at Neuts r' Us is constantly being stalked and killed ( she never dies so don't fear ) :D

    Before he will reveal any more information to you he wants you to scan your ID-Data with Marciello's ID Scanner.



    He also mentions that to get your own personal ID-Data use an ID-Extracter on an Expendable Hologram Camera.  

    + =  

    By combining your ID-Date on the Marciello's ID Scanner you should get a signed contract.



    Hand him the Contract and the Scanner and he will tell you more about the crime and that the following people are on his list of suspects :
    Gilbert Glove, Fritz, Simon Stark, Imelda Dane, Mary-Ann, Herbalist Gerard, Ethel Anthony, Penelope Magistrale



  • Find The Person Who Stalked and Killed the Lady at the Bar
    After enquiring about all the suspects ! ( long time chatting :D )

    He will give you an ID Disc



    You will then need to tag the person you suspect :D ( Real Sherlock Holmes stuff :D )

    He makes mention of a bar tender getting a piece of red cloth from the suspect.

    Head to Neuters R' Us Bar in Newland
    Pos: 446.1, 340.0, 25.0, Area: Newland City. UTC: Mon Sep 06 15:35:02 2004 ( South of the Whompas )

    Simon Stark
    Herbalist Gerard
    Ethel Anthong
    Penelope Magistrale

    People drinking whisky
    Fritz

Quests / Uncle Bazzit Quest ( COMPLETE )
September 03, 2004, 03:30:56 pm
NOTE: This is a Lengthy Quest ( about 6hrs ) allow yourself plenty of  time for this :D ( you can do it in smaller chunks, and I've included suitable break points for you )

Also before you start this quest make sure you have a Hacker Tool



You will need it !!! ( These can be bought in any store and QL doesn't seem to matter, for the purpose of this guide I used a QL160 one ( Thank you Sprotcha :D ))


Reward One :

Bazzit's Alien Library ( See Stage 4 )




-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stage One ( 1.5hrs )



  • Visit Uncle Bazzit in his workshop in Meetmedere
    (Pos: 1546.6, 2723.2, 31.2, Area: Meetmedere. UTC: Fri Sep 03 13:29:42 2004)
    After some talking he gives you "unknown device"



  • Talk to Deidre Lux
    Pos: 1260.0, 2845.1, 0.0, Area: East Last Ditch. UTC: Fri Sep 03 13:41:53 2004 ( SWB )
    After some talking and looking at the "unknown device" She gives you a weapon to return to the Vanguards.
    Make a note of what frequency she wants it tuned to. You'll need this for later



  • Talk to Ramon Bauer
    Pos: 502.9, 565.4, 11.9, Area: Old Athen East. UTC: Fri Sep 03 14:23:50 2004 ( OA Grid Terminal )
    NOTE: This will be one of the most frustrating parts of the quest, since this NPC is very easily aggro'd and is liable to be running anywhere over OA depending on where his target died :D

    When you finally get to show him the gun, he will ask for a favour and give you a Modified Tracking Device



  • Target Commander Kend Ash
    Pos: 413.4, 405.9, 40.4, Area: Trade District. UTC: Fri Sep 03 14:32:10 2004 ( Omni Trade Whompas )
    NOTE: Another difficult point in the quest, since this is in Omni terriortory and omni's find it ammusing to get PvP flagged ( because naturally you'll get flagged in Trade with a guard hitting you ) and ambush you as you try and tag the Commander.  n/m you can return the favour when they visit OA 8)

  • Talk to Ramon Bauer
    Hand him the Modified Tracking Device
    He will then tune the weapon for you, he needs to know the frequency though. Hopefully you made a note :D

  • Talk to Deidre Lux
    Hand her the weapon. You will then need to do a quest to become a member of the "smokers lounge". You will need a hacking tool


    At this point you can take a break, and come back to the quest at a later date.



Stage Two ( 2 Hrs )

You will now need to complete a mini-fixer type quest to gain honourary membership to the "smokers lounge" an exclusive club that you need to be a member of in order for the Bizzit quest to proceed. This is a serious of quick tests, so make sure you have allowed yourself time to do this.  ( You have about 1hr to do each mission of several missions )

Right click your Hacker Tool on the next 3 mobs, to progress the mission.



  • Cyborg Lieutenant Colonel
    Pos: 1400.9, 532.3, 44.7, Area: Mort Crater. UTC: Sat Sep 04 01:41:00 2004 ( Can be found wandering at the Ruins on Mort Crater nr. Sentinals grid exit )

  • Cyborg Brigadier General
    Same location as above

  • Prototype Inferno
    Inside Cyborg Barracks, Great Tir County.
    NOTE: This is the same mob that alot of soldiers kill for the soldier weapon. 20 mins spawn timer. Make sure your there early :D

  • Talk to Deidre Lux
    Hand her the hacker tool and in return, after some adjustments she'll give you a Linked Hacker Tool



    At this point you can take a break, and come back to the quest at a later date.




Stage Three ( 4 Hrs )


  • Talk to Deidre Lux
    Show her the Linked Hacker Tool, and she will give you a mission to bring back a Vanguard Node Access Card. The mission is like a regular pick up mission, simply upload the coords and complete the mission.

    NOTE: Get your blitzing shoes back on. Mine was a lvl 250 mission ( I assume / hope this is relative to your personal level ) , so unless you want to spend hours killing lvl 250 mobs learn to blitz :D

    You should eventually find Vanguard Node 19 Access Card in the mission



  • Talk to Deidre Lux
    She will give you another mission, this time to hack into the Vanguard Node Controller.

    This is a find mission. You will eventually find a post in the mission which you can interface with. Its quiet tricky to navigate through chat, but basically you need to print the logs out after you've deleted the records for Uncle Bizzit.

    Be sure you have these



    "These are logs  pulled from the Vanguard 19 Node hack. These logs contain no references of any kind to Uncle Bazzit."

    and NOT


    "These are logs  pulled from the Vanguard 19 Node hack. The logs contain references to transactions made on Uncle Bazzit's account."

  • Talk to Deidre Lux
    Show her the logs, and she will reward you with a Hackre Club Affiliate Card



    Continue chatting with her and ask her for further info. on the  "uknown device" Bazzit gave you. She will contact Ofoz and confirm the device as a Kyr'Ozch Structural Analyzer



    Continue chatting until you get to a point where you say "I must tell Bazzit about this"...

    You'll get a new mission to "update Bazzit on your progress"

  • Visit Uncle Bazzit in his workshop in Meetmedere
    Talk to Uncle Bazzit and show him the Kyr'Ozch Structural Analyzer.
    Keep talking to him and he will eventually give you a mission to show Ofoz your affliation with the Smokers Lounge.

  • Talk to Ofoz
    Pos: 686.8, 580.0, 66.8, Area: Borealis. UTC: Sun Sep 05 13:39:52 2004
    Talk to Ofoz and show him the Hackers Club Affliate Card. He will then ask for the Analyzer, and then ask you to hack into an Omni Node for more information.  He will give you a remote Access Hacker Tool for the next mission.



    Right-Click this tool on the Omni-Tek Node you will find in the mission, and you should be rewarded with some Omni-Tek Node Logs



    Return to Ofoz

  • Talk to Ofoz
    Show Ofoz the logs and keep talking with him, ask him all about the "Unicorns" and eventually he will give you a mission to speak with Sirocco.

  • Talk to Sirocco
    Pos: 210.8, 216.6, 8.0, Area: Old Athen West. UTC: Sun Sep 05 15:14:00 2004 ( SW Corner of OA )

    Show him the card, and select "The Truth must be found..." in chat, then "The Smokers Lounge Care and are organised" Then show him the device. Keep talking and he will go on about Dr. Zibell and Dr. Krank. Then select "I have to tell Uncle Bazzit about this"

    New mission.

  • Talk to Uncle Bazzit in his workshop in Meetmedere

    Show him the Analyzer and finally you will be rewarded with the Bazzit's Alien Library.




    At this point you can take a break, and come back to the quest at a later date. ( You deserve a break by now )



    NOTE: You can continue the quest if you wish to find out a bit more about the analyzer and also receive a five slot belt as a reward item. I will complete the rest of this quest later due to RL stuff, for now here is the rest as written by Trgeorge.



http://forums.anarchy-online.com/showthread.php?t=330629

Quote from: "Trgeorge"
Ramon being true to Vanguard cause, don't want to reveal info for free. But talk about luck, he has some mission for you. All you have to do is to retrieve Stolen Goods. He'll then share information (free of any additional charge), revealing that he bought that device from Eco Red in Aegean at 626,1150.
Red isn't it former self...he transformed into hippie-like blubermouth. Just enquier about ecosystems and local wildlife...option to ask about this device will present itself. Unforunatly he too is extremly busy and would really apreciate if you'd do him small favor, while he tries to remember about this device. So you set out, equiped with Scanning Device after some local wildlife (must be scaned in proper order). You can find Hammer Beast roaming around south part of Aegean, Rollerat in Clan BY, Monolith Bluebag in Warmint Woods (lvl 60 dyna west of whompa), VultureFeuder SW of Hope,BS and Grass Snake in Omni BY. Now Red tells you what he knows about Alien crash and admits it was really his friend Zibell the wanderer from Central artery valley at 3435,2650, who found this device. So now's time for trek to CAV.
*Here's little advice/spoiler. Zibell and Dr.Krank are, well, they'd be called excentric if they would be rich. You can bypass most of conversation just by trading needing item to them. You'd miss some interesting conversation tho. *
Strike conversation with Zibell and try making him talk about Dr.Krank. When he starts to relax as he splits about his counterpart, you feel it's good time to ask about Kyr'Ozch Structural Analyzer. Sure he could tell you about how he got it, but you shouldn't wind him up about Dr.Krank, this is only thing he can think about atm. Only option is to get rid of "good" doc. At this point you could go talk to Dr.Krank, but he won't share any information and deffinitly won't buldge. (Here's friendly tip from Minimalist....I sure couldn't find any info what to do next ingame).
Travel back to Aegean and visit old friend Dodga Demerzel at 610,1120. Ask him about his work for CoT and about personel shortage. He does have Omni-Tek Personnel Transfer Application and upon learning that it would help Uncle Bazzit, he'll gladely share it with you.Now get back to CAV and visit Dr.Krank at 2965,1315. He won't be trilled about receiving transfer, but que serra, besides he probably won't remember it anyway the next day.
Now Zibell is prepared to talk about device and you learn that it wasn't him who found it (I'll leave you task to dig this out ). And it's wrong man, you're talking too, other fruitcake might be more autority on Kyr'Ozch.
Just revist Dr.Krank and force device upon him...he'll share information and even ql100 Solid Clump of Kyr'Ozch Bio-Material to test it on. With cycle closed you can return to Uncle Bazzit, who'll reveal some dark secret from the past and donate you Overclocked Belt Component Platform for your troubles (yes, you can keep device you greedy mamal).

Finnaly couple of warnings....quest is buggy and at times you must use proper wording to continue it (It's not obvius choise). There is also problem with Omni taging Ramon and pulling him away, tho breaking conversation/quest. If anything like that happens or a timer runs out, you can pick up quest from Deidre....just say you want to inform Uncle Bazzit about findings and you'll pick it up from there. Also missions from Ramon to Red, Red's tagging one, from Red to Zibell don't delete/finish. Due to those factors it's possible that fix/change in quest will be introduced somewhere in future.

Chat and OCC / Uninvited Guests: Helping or Griefing?

In this post, when I refer to "outside guilds", I mean non-allied guilds. For instance, Forsaken shares our city spot with AIL, LC, etc. We are allied with them, and they are "invited" guests to our raids, as far as I understand. Anyway, you get the point - invited vs. uninvited.

So far today, there has been a lot of uninvited guesting. Some uninvited guests like to call what they do "helping" the "defenders." Under NW tower attack logic, OK.

However.

In most cases, the "defenders" are actually doing everything possible to get an alien attack, so they can get alien XP and alien phats. It is not, in some cases, well recieved to have 50 people show up when you finally get aliens to spawn in the city you invested 500 million credits in, attack and kill the aliens, then loot their corpses.

Further, it is more than a little bothersome when the uninvited guests happen to be of opposite alignment, not only for political and philisophical reasons, but because they filthy up your tab list (say, when you're a doctor trying to heal people outside of your team using /assist) - and even more bothersome when they show up PvP flagged, and all of your AoE attacks and procs and accidental attacks make you flagged.

So.

We have an organization making a major investment in time, credits, and energy to build a city.

We have the rewards of these endeavours being reaped by freeloading "helpers" who charge in and killsteal and ninja loot without asking.

We have PvP griefing in the middle of all of it.

Now, I'm sure that a lot of this will die down as the "novelty" of alien attacks lessens, but how acceptable is it, really, to take part in another organization's "defense"?

I say, if you don't have a deal with them, steer freaking clear, same way you don't run up to a merc raid and stand around the corpses.

All I know is that it was damn near impossible to do anything with so many people around, the lag was horrible, and I know we didn't get all of the loot that fell. Omnis showed up and started procing AoE blinds and crap, and generally making a nuissance of themselves while insisting that they were helping us defend our city. The boss alien was almost KSed from us.

Unacceptable. Un-freaking-acceptable. Ask before you gank.
