Social Clothing Quests
Faction: All Factions
Level: All Levels
Quicklink (copy this):
This is long and fairly boring and requires lots of travel and in general, time. You will need to do each quest 2 times. However the Anti-Perspiring padding you need to do 4 times and the Biomesh you need to do 14 times (light Biomesh 6 times, regulated light Biomesh 2 time, heavy Biomesh 4 times and Regulated Heavy Biomesh 2 times). The reason being is that you will need to complete sets of the basic social clothes. There are no AI back armors, so you can skip one of the light Biomesh quests if you are making AI armor.
(To see which set of social clothes you would like to make, click Here for a complete listing of clothes, complete with screenshots. To see details on how to make AI armor, click here.)
Here's a list of everything you need:
*Note: Body Heat Pattern Analyzer is a tool and doesn't get used up in process
So now you may be wondering where in the world am I supposed to get all of this stuff. Well just so happens that Divenchy gives you some clues. First talk to him about making the Bio Mesh. He will ask if you want to make light or heavy. If you choose light he will give you a Meta Roentgen Scanner and tell you to scan 2 Igruanas and 1 Mornitor. If you choose the heavy, he will tell you to scan 3 Igruanas and 3 Mornitor.
When tagging the lizards, you must tag Igruana first then Mornitor, then Igruana, then Mornitor, etc. These can be found just south of Divenchy. You can tag the same Igruana/Mornitor as long as you do it in the right order. Rooting/Calms can speed this process. That's the easy part, now its time to track down some NPCs.
Following is a list of NPCs locations and what they give you.
Extract of Bodum-Minor
Multi-Grip Cybernetic Soles
Gives you mission for
Sensitive Cybernetic Fingertips
Hair Care Contraption
Transparent Thermostatic Vest
Grid exit at
Body Heat Pattern Analyzer
Secondary NPC's :
Good Time Party Mixer
Outside Neuters 'R Us
Ok now you know who gives what, so onto the questing.
Herbalist Gerard - Talk to Divenchy about the Anti-Perspiring Padding. He will talk about Herbalist Gerard. Fly to
Take the bottle to the bartender at Neuters 'R Us, (make sure you go to the Bartender and NOT Dante Karall who is also behind the other bar in the same room). If you are nice he'll give you a Flimsy Barstool. Go back to Gilbert and tell him that you have given the bottle to the bartender.
Deliver the bottle to him.
While Gilbert is happy that you delivered the bottle, he will tell you that you have to get the Sensitive Cybernetic Fingertips from a machine in a mission generated just for you, which he provides the waypoint for. However, you must have some special passcodes first. He will give you the first one, which is 42, but tells you that you must talk to Penelope and Inspector Marciello for the color codes. He warns that you must not let them know what your asking for. So you have to talk to them and through conversation determine the color codes (it not always the same combination for every player and you are not allowed to guess. You must talk to both Penelope and Marciello to obtain the right answers. If you do not talk to both NPC's none of the answer combinations will ever be correct.).
Now off to the mission (the location depends on your level). Once in the mission look for a trashcan looking thingy. Once you find it talk to it. It will ask for the codes, enter 4, then 2, then the color codes. It will give you a list of items to choose from. Select the Sensitive Cybernetic Fingertips.
Now you must activate the Fingertips before you leave! If you leave w/o activating them you will not be able to re-enter mission, and you will have to start over . Pick up the Fingertips and use them on the machine. Now you have your Sensitive Cybernetic Fingertips.
Fritz - (inside Neuters'R Us Newland City) Well Fritz is a your typical male chauvinist pig. No wonder he can't get a date with Imelda Dane. Anyway talk to him and he gives you some sob story about his feet hurting from dancing to much. He wants you to go find him a pair of shoes. The shoes he wants are Blue Boots which can be easily found on the general clothes terminal ; they aren't always there so just check until you find 'em, or focus on fashion shops (like Miiir's). Give Fritz the Blue Boots and then ask you to help him to get a date with Ms. Dane.
Now, read the following process carefully : once you accepted to help him he trades you an ID card ; speak to the bartender and tell him you were told to give him "this" (the ID) for a drink, so trade it to him actually and you can select any drink (beer, sake or redwine) through the chat (NOT within his shopping basket interface !) ; next you chat with Imelda by telling her you want to offer her a drink, trade her the "Giovanni" drink you just obtained (nothing else !), therefore you immediatelly reveal her it's from Fritz (or you'll have to redo everything again). She'll coldly send you back to Fritz, so speak to him again and he should drop the Hair Care Contraption and let you keep it for your lovely efforts. If you do anything wrong and get stucked at a point, delete the related missions/items, reread these few lines & redo it all well (takes only a few minutes).
Simon Stark -
Last but not least Investigator Marciello who is at Meetmedere (MMD). Investigator Marciello wants you to help him with a murder mystery (and it's random). First he wants you to sign a contract with him. He gives you a Marciello's ID Scanner, but you need to get the contract. To do this you must combine an ID-extractor and Expendable Hologram Camera your ID data.
(The Expendable Hologram Camera will get used up by this process but you'll keep the ID-extractor)
Use the ID-data on the Marciello's ID Scanner, to get a Signed Contract. Hand the Scanner and the contract to him. He will give you a copy and the quest. Time to play detective and solve that crime. Once you solve the crime he gives you the Body Heat Pattern Analyzer. With this and the other parts you can now make your social clothes!!!!
Finding the Murderer
Note: gender, drink and color of clothes used in here are just an example. Everytime you do this quest, you can get different combination.
First, the Inspector then gives you the clues that the person is wearing red and was drinking whiskey.
Then speak to the Good Time's Party Mixer at Neuters 'r Us, to find the gender of the suspect.
Then speak to the bartender at Neuter's 'r Us gives you a list of four people that were drinking whiskey.
Then speak to Misa Ramirez is in the side room by the door and she tells you who was wearing red.
You now have one female wearing red and drinking whiskey. You also have one male wearing red and drinking whiskey. So you got one male and one female suspect. Now go tag that suspect and return to the Inspector.
To tag the suspect:
Talk to them and click the give item icon, then give them the ID disk. Return to the Inspector, if you chose the right person he will reward you. If you tagged the wrong person he will say something like "No news on the suspects? I though as much". If you tagged the wrong person then you have to wait for the timer on the mission to expire before you can retry (45 minutes).
Making the pieces
I've had a few questions about this so I thought it might be helpful to add it here. I'll give regulated bio and non regulated bio mesh examples. Non-regulated Bio Mesh is the Bio Mesh Divenchy gives you. Regulated Bio Mesh can be made by using the Body Heat Pattern Analyzer on the Bio Mesh Divenchy gives you. To make the vest: First add a Regulated Heavy Bio Mesh to the Thermo Vest. This will result in a Basic Vest.
You then take the Basic Vest and combine it with the Fashion Kit (the fashion kit must be for the corresponding part, i.e. vest kit added to the vest). You now have your fashionable vest. For the gloves you would add the regular Light Bio Mesh with the Fingertips. This will result in the Basic Gloves. Add these to the kit and you got a new pair of gloves. The pieces (such as Thermo Vest etc) should be the source, with the mesh as the addition. In one of the processes (I think boots) it's backwards. The Basic piece should also be the source with the fashion kit ass the addition. Hope this clears some things up. Happy Clothes Hunting!
Note: If your making combined armors don't add a fashion kit. You only need "Basic" armor. All fashion's kits are sold at Maria's Fashion terminal inside Bazzit's Shop In Meetmedere (MMD).
