Quest Objectives

#1/11: Defeat an Ancient Dracolich in a 3-Star Dungeon in the Permafrost 

Meteor Chase 1/11: A fiery meteor streaks across the sky! Fragments are falling into the Permafrost. They might be valuable! 

Dragons would be the fastest to intercept anything valuable, and those undead ones are really alert despite being, you know, dead. Look in 3-star dungeons for an Ancient Dracolich and see if it is hoarding anything interesting.

Reward 1x Empowered Gem Box

The Ancient Dracolich was also hoarding this.

#2/11: Defeat Robowraith 2.0s in 3-Star Dungeons in Neon City (5)

Meteor Chase 2/11: It's some sort of black box data recorder! There are places to insert what looks like a battery, places to mount some sort of input/output device, and some odd spherical cavity. What was this doing in a meteor?

Fragments are also raining down on Neon City. Anything high tech would be grabbed by Robowriath 2.0s immediately, and held in their 3-star Dungeons. Conduct a fact-finding mission on their circuits.

Reward 1x Otherworldly Battery

The last Robowraith had this. Wait, why do meteors have batteries?

#3/11: Collect Special Robotic Salvage in Candoria (100)

Meteor Chase 3/11: We could cobble together a sort of projector unit to get data out of the Data Recorder if we had some special robotic salvage.

Poundcakes often contain just the very thing, but don't bother with the ones in dungeons; we need the sun-baked kind out on the flats. 100 pieces should be enough to construct a passable front end. Get to Candoria and have a cake-smash party.

Reward 1x Double Experience Potion

This was baked into a Poundcake. Crunchy surprise, indeed.

Community Tips

  • One poundcake kill drops multiple special salvage, this could be tied to the difficulty.

#4/11: Acquire Unusual Meteor Fragments (50)

Meteor Chase 4/11: There is room for a ball of metal in the center of the device. Looks like we need some alien metal to activate the device.

There are still meteor fragments falling in Medieval Highlands. Some creature there must have picked them up by now. Go beat on different things until you find one that is hoarding orange meteor fragments. Then beat on those things a lot more. We should be able to refine alien metal from them.

Reward 5x Bound Brilliance

Those meteor chunks glow with inner radiance. Or radiation. And so do these.

Community Tips

  • Killing small bees seems to be the only way to gain meteor fragments.
  • Get yourself 50 more Meteor Fragments, you need them for the next stage.

#5/11: Craft a Data Projector

Meteor Chase 5/11: We have everything we need! Just craft it all together in the Wheel of Seasons (under Eternal) in the Hub.

What stupendous secrets will it reveal?


Reward 3x Chaos Chest

It's alive! Oh, wait no. It is displaying a hologram though.

#6/11: Collect Plasteel Plates from the Fae Wilds (100)

Meteor Chase 6/11: The combined device is a Data Projector, and it spurts into life with beams of light. A hologram whirls around you. It seems to be… no it couldn't be. Yes it is! These are the plans to construct a flying saucer!

The first step is acquire some special metal called plasteel. The device indicates that a number fell off the "meteor" over the Fae Wilds, right into a hedgemaze. Find this specific 3-star dungeon, and acquire plasteel from whoever has set up shop there.

Labyrinth dungeon (any kill counts, boss kill will be worth loads)

Reward 2x Lapis Luckbug

The Data Projector abruptly drops these out like gumballs.

#7/11: Collect Power Plant Segments from the Magical Atoll (50)

Meteor Chase 7/11: Your Data Projector displays a latticework of blue lines in the space around you. The next step is to reconstruct a power plant.

Go to the Drowned World. Seek out hard-shelled enemies in the Magical Atoll (the biome with the butterfly icon). Most should be on the beach. They are the only ones who could contain such power. But they may also be enhanced by it.

Reward 1x Ninth Life

Your Data Projector goes quiet, grunts, and somewhat painfully extrudes this.

#8/11: Complete 1-Star Dungeons (30)

Meteor Chase 8/11: Your Data Projector chugs with pleasure at your progress. It now requests a coil of Engine Components, which are strewn all over Trove.

Running 1-Star Dungeons will probably get you what you need.

Reward 30x Engine Component

The amassed loot from those dungeons should be enough.

#9/11: Collect Fuel Drops from Candorian Cupcake Plants (30)

Meteor Chase 9/11: Now fuel is all that's needed! The "meteor", if that's the right word for it, was seen dripping some sort of fuel over Candoria. Some of the moist and delicious Cupcake plants there must have mopped up any spilled fuel. Keep harvesting them until you find enough.

Reward 5x Gem Booster Box

How this small device holds so much gem stuff is baffling.

Community Tips

  • Not every cupcake will give you fuel drops.

#10/11: Craft a Scout Saucer 

Meteor Chase 10/11: The components seem to be in good order. Now, you just need to find a suitable place to craft it. The blueprint says to seek out a S.O.A.R. T-2 terminal, located in the Sky Realms, in the Radiant Ruins. Hmm. This may be tricky to find.\

Find the S.O.A.R. T-2 terminal in the lair with the green sides (shown below)


Reward 25x Diamond Dragonite

As it is being mounted in, the Data Projector hits the jackpot and spills all this out.

#11/11: Collect the Scout Saucer

Meteor Chase 11/11: You did it! You reconstructed a flying saucer from... an alien visitor who crashed to our world. But… who flew it here, and where did they come from? And if they are scouting us, maybe we should scout them back? If only they had sent an Emissary. Oh well, let's take this thing out for a spin.

And if they are scouting us, maybe we should scout them back? If only they had sent an Emissary. Oh well, let's take this thing out for a spin.

Oh well, let's take this thing out for a spin.

Reward 1x Radiant Sovereign

Found in the glove compartment, used by the radiant merchant in the Hub. How odd...
