GW2 IG-6417 Inquest Backpacks Collections Guide. This series of timegated collections will reward you with an Ascended backpack as the end reward. Updated: March 9, 2018.
This series of collections give you a series of Inquest backpacks from exotic quality all the way to ascended.
The first exotic backpack you will get is the Inquest Device for completing the story in A Bug in the System. Then you can start with the Repairing IG-6417 collection which give you the Inquest Apparatus. Once you finish that collection you will unlock Rebooting IG-6417 which give you the Inquest Mechanism. This is a timegated collection that takes 7 days to complete. Finally, you will finish off with the Redeeming IG-6417 Collection that give you the Ascended version called Mark Y Golem.
The best place to get most of the parts needed to repair IG-6417 is to do the pre-event for Specimen Chamber. The pre-event spawns waves of Inquest and Golems and right afterwards you can do the Specimen Chamber meta. The pre-event starts once the Seepage has drained the laser array’s power so once you see that countdown it will tell you exactly when the pre-events will start.
Golem Right Arm/Golem Left Arm
- These drops off Inquest mobs all over the map. Best place is the Specimen Chamber pre-event but you can also try the area around Rata Primus as there are plenty of Inquest around.
- Drops off the champion mobs in Specimen Chamber meta event
- Kill the Moas and Moa Hatchlings in the marked area north of Atholma Waypoint until you get some to drop for you.
Gravitic Repulsion Unit/Holographic Display Unit
- These drop off Inquest Golems. You can get them from the Specimen Chamber pre-event as well since the Inquest waves have a bunch of golems in them.
Golem Power Core
- For this you will need to kill a Mark III Suppressor Golem. The golem is a group event that spawns in various locations around Rata Primus. It will spawn on top of the structures rather than below in the tunnels.
After you have all the parts, you can find IG-6417 near Calon Islet. Hand all the items to the golem to finish the achievement/collection.
Rebooting IG-6417 (Timegated)
Inquest passcode is a random drop off the Inquest mobs in the area and you need it first before you can interact with any of the Inquest Terminals so just kill Inquest mobs until you get a drop.
This module is on top of the Western Complex and inside a sealed structure that you normally need to use Jackal Sand Portal to enter. Luckily you can just get it by hugging the wall and pressing the interact button.
This is pretty straightforward. It is one of the consoles on top of the Western Complex.
Easy module to get, inside some building on top of Western Complex.
This module is near HR-874 but much higher and inside of the cube structures high up in the air.
You can glide down to this module straight from ZN-290
From Anniogel Waypoint, go south and west around Rata Primus until you see the huge cube above the water in the middle. There you will find a tunnel (take the right tunnel) that will lead you to the Inquest Terminal.
This module is a bit tricky to get because it is covered by the black goop and if you are right on top of it, it becomes invisible so you have to rely on the interact key. It is on the platform at the top next to one of the Asura Gates.
Feeding IG-6417 Modules
Once you have all the modules, you can give it to IG-6417. However, he will only take 1-2 module per day it seems so this step is timegated and can be completed after 4-7 days.Sometimes you can get IG-6417 to take 2x modules per day but not closing the conversation window after you hand in the first module and the window may refresh and allow you to hand in a second module.
For the last module, IG-6417 won’t accept it so you have to go to Hero-Tron in Lion’s Arch and exchange XD-356 with a Revised Module XD-356.
Special thanks to Holyete and MetsysEU for sending in the screens of the collection.
This collection is not timegated but it is a bit weird on what you can turn in. You can only turn in items of the same category of events (i.e. rescuing refugees) so until you get that category of collection items all turned in you can’t turn in collection items of other category type of events.
Make sure you have 105 Difluorite Crystals. Each heart vendor sell x5 in a bundle so you can get at least 20 per day by just doing the hearts if your RNG with gathering isn’t so great.
To start off this collection, you will need to go to Researcher Thale in Sandswept Isles and purchase 21 of the Recording Devices. Each costs 5 Difluorite Crystals for a total of 105 Difluorite Crystals. Then you need to do 21 events with these Recording Devices, each event consuming one.
