Mysterious Mining robots are suddenly everywhere underground, and it's up to you to uncover their plans and liberate a plucky little companion: the Minerbot Qubesley!

Depth Charge is an event which features 9 Golden Thread quests, having the players search for and rescue a Minerbot Qubesly.

It started in April 18, 2017 and lasted through May 2.

During the event, Steambot Drones will spawn in the Cursed Vale, Haunted Isles and Dragonfire Peaks biomes, Steambot Overseers spawn in the High Lands and Fae Forest biomes, and Gigas Minerbots spawn in the Dragonfire Peaks biome; killing these is required to progress through the quests, but they do not grant any unique items.

Completing the quests will award the player the event-specific Minerbot Qubesly ally.

Name Description How to get Reward
Acquire Shapestone  You were minding your business one day, just mining Shapestone.  Mine 300 Shapestone Ore. Miner's Trove small Miner's Trove x10
Defeat Steambot Drones in Cursed Vale Caves  ...when a radio-like sound came out of nowhere: 'Help! Er, you can help, right? I'm stuck inside some sort of mining bot. This is my most desperate hour. Help me Trovian. You're my only hope. Smash some Steambot Drones to free me! We're stuck in a cave, building character through delayed grottofication. Get it? Ha!'  Kill 50 Steambot Drones underground in the Cursed Vale (Other locations such as underground Haunted Isles and Dragonfire Peaks still counts towards this objective) Lesser Dragon Cache small Lesser Dragon Cache x10
Acquire Formicite  The plucky voice comes through the radio static. 'I guess I'm inside some other mining bot. It's really hard to tell which one from the inside! If you mine some formicite, I might be able to form a sight of where I am! Get it? Did you see what I did there? Say, I like you.'  Mine 100 Formicite Ore. Double Experience Potion small Double Experience Potion
Defeat Miners in Haunted Isles Caves  The voice continues, happily oblivious to your needs, 'Oh! I hear spooky noises. And the lapping waves of the Drowned Worlds. And the echo of caves. Smash some Steambots here and soon I'll be free! And punch their miner buddies for me, would ya? Quick! Let's be pun-ctual about it! They're looking for something!'  Kill 50 Steambot Drones in the Underground Haunted Isles in the Drowned World (Other locations such as underground Cursed Vale and Dragonfire Peaks still count towards this objective) Dragon Coin small Dragon Coin x10
Acquire Crystallized Clouds  'It sure is hot and cramped in here. I'm sure I will survive, but a few ground Crystallized Clouds sure would let me live a bit longer, if I'm lucky enough to be found by you. Seriously, I've got no children either, and how am I supposed to breathe with no heir?'  Mine 100 Crystallized Clouds. Empowered Gem Box small Empowered Gem Box x3
Defeat Steambot Overseers in the High Lands  'I'm in a Steambot Overseer! Right below the brain-bucket. I'm sure of it! You're in the Cursed Skylands anyways, right? Defeat some by chopping them off at the ankles! Haha! No seriously, I'll crawl out the leg-hole and tell you about their plot to find sun shards and enslave the universe.'  Kill 100 Steambot Overseers in the High Lands biome in the Cursed Skylands (Underground Fae Forest still counts towards this objective) Chaos Chest small Chaos Chest x5
Defeat Steambot Overseers in Fae Forest Caves  'These guys are really on the move. We're in the forest now. Hurry! Smash more Steambot Overseers and I'll be free. I read the manual for how to build these things once. It was riveting! But really, these robots are digging up everything looking for some kind of sun shard. I don't think they'll find it though, because they are pretty shady.'  Kill 25 Steambot Overseers underground in the Fae Forest (High Lands biome in the Cursed Skylands still counts towards this objective) Chaos Chest small Chaos Chest x5
Gigas Minerbots in Dragonfire Peaks Caves  'Now I remember, I'm in a Gigas Minerbot! They drilled that into me actually, but I found it boring. Sorry, could've saved you some time. Time waits for no man, but I'm a little robot, and I don't want to rust in peace, so maybe we could hang out together after this?'  Kill 25 Gigas Minerbots underground in the Dragonfire Peaks biome Minerbot Qubesly small Minerbot Qubesly
Acquire Infinium  'Those miners were up all night looking for some kind of sun shard. It never dawned on them where to find them though. We'll find out what they were up to in no time. But I always say that time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. Anyways, let's mine our own business for a while'  Mine 100 Infinium Ore. Diamond Dragonite small Diamond Dragonite x25
