[FULL GUIDE] Maquinas Outpost Dungeon by ninjii @Mercury
NOTE THE NEWEST AND UPDATED GUIDE FOR THE DUNGEON CAN BE FOUND HERE!!!!!!!!
Since now EU has managed to finish the dungeon I see no reason why not to help the rest of the community in achieving this goal.
Disclaimer: This guide has Pictures and parts of text from the NA forums (just the transaltion from KR of quests), thanks to Chippo for translating it and putting it up. I added parts that explain game play and what should be done when. It's a fast referance guide and easy to understand. Also some parts I will edit if something changes in tactics or options. As for the pics and why they are in KR i used them because during dungeon you barely have time to sit and make perfect settings for good pics. Hope you enjoy any tips to add that aren't flames are welcome.
General tips: Coordination is the key, organize and don't kamikaze on bosses, so DON'T GO SOLO, especially on bosses move as a group. Always leave buff slot for SP. Bring fury pots, 14 is needed to do a smooth full run. At the beginning you don't use many but by the end you'll need them. Odds not tht necessary if you have good game play and gear but a minimum of 4 i think is required just to be sure, wis might need more.
But the most important thing and you'll see me repeat it over and over is TIME. You always keep an eye on time from the start and not waste any, if you die and have to dash all the way back it's better to odd. Every second here counts, trust me.
Party requirements: From the runs I've made and seen what really matters in this dungeon is the damage. The harder and faster you kill the better or mobs will eventually kill most of your party and you'll end up wasting time. 2 was and 1 bl are needed. Best set up for damagers is 2 BLs 2 WAs and 1 FB. Other classes are your pic. Again you must have REALLY GOOD GEAR, and a high level *170+* to be able to finish this dungeon. So if you have all really good geared players you won't need to use FA or FS, but if you have a slightly weaker party FA or FS or both might be needed.
Quests and Moving around:You need to try and memorise the places and names as soon as possible. Getting lost in here will make you lose time. From beginning room you will be teleported to every other room in the dungeon. Here the only difference between the panels to choose is looking at the name of the place where you'll be taken to.
So without further ad due here is the guide :3
◈ Factory Area 1
On the left side of the dungeon’s start, there is Unit Production Factory Move Console.
Click the console to move and *Signle BM* MA-06B Reformo Quadra. Mobs will appear while attacking MA-06B Reformo Quadra. Lure him in mobs they give +10 seconds each. Cancel BM after it's killed. Killing Quadra will give you 2:30 mins
From this moment, the timer decreases periodically so remove all monsters quickly.Then break the box, go forward, and remove more monsters. Then a sealed place will open. Enter that place and as you venture forward, you will face MA-07 Directo Quadrupes, which has to be removed also. ATTACKS: Does Spike + lure him in mobs. *DOUBLE BM* Killing it will give you 3 mins.
Transmission Area Disk will drop from the boss. Pick it up and move to the next area. The time limit also increases when monsters are removed here.
◈ Information Center - Area 2
Move to the Center Hall.
Find Information Center Move Console and click it to go there. Then click Information Center Control Console to open a door and enter. Monsters will be there. Removing the front ones will give you more time. Another door will open. Go in and there will be three DB consoles. Click the middle one. After it’s clicked, TA-01b Infinitas Rota will appear. *1 BM*Killing this boss will give you 2:40 mins
Either Capella Secret Disk or Procyon Secret Disk will be dropped when this Rota is removed.
At this area, the console on the left is Procyon DB Console, and on the right is Capella DB Console.
Click the console that matches the picked-up disk. This will send you back to the entrance of Information Center. From here, click Command Module Transmission Console. A door will open and monsters will come out. This time, ignore these. Your timer will decrease when you remove these ones. Find a breakable wall, break it, and go inside.If you have Procyon disk click after wall on the RIGHT or Cap on the LEFT to get side-quest chest. Click Center Hall Move Console there.
REMOVE BM BEFORE STARTING, AND CAST DOUBLE BEFORE STARTING.
ATTACKS:Flames AoE attack, and Huge spike towards the end that will kill at least one of your memebers, kill FAST. Killing this boss will give you 2:20 mins
ARM-05 Arma Oudidibit will appear. Remove it and open the box.*DOUBLE*
After removing this boss, proceed with the Secret Disk quest. It doesn’t matter whether you do the quest before or after the boss removal.
The left console is Capella and the right one is Procyon. You must click the check line twice to complete the quest. After completing the Nation Information Transmission quest, click Center Hall Move Console to go back there. Or dash back to were this area started and take a right once quest is done in beginning area.
Clicking the correct panel in the first area (something about alarm zone) will spawn some small replicauns, kill them and click again to activate quest and teleport to next area: Laboratory Move Console. Usually it's good to spawn them and while party kills them, one member goes into next room and opens the door.
◈ Laboratory - Area 3
Find Laboratory Move Console in Center Hall and move to Laboratory. Then click Unit Modification Laboratory Access Console to unseal a closed area. Removethe first 3 monsters that appear there and open another sealed area while waiting for the furthest door to open. Then kill the small Replicaums in this circular area untill the door to entrance Laboratory opens. Then move ahead not touching any mob into the next big room.
Ignore the cornuses from the next area (the center of Laboratory), because they will decrease the timer. Remove UMD-01R Replicaum and UMD-02R Replicaum. These 2 mobs hit hard and have high regen. You need to lure them fast and try not to lure any more than 1 or 2 big Cornuses or it will become hard.
tip: RUN TO BACK OF ROOM TOP RIGHT CORNER AND LURE THE REPLICAUM THERE, *DOUBLE as soon as you get to top right corner*. When killed go back to the entrance of Laboratory. (Or die, this is faster). Killing these bosses will give you 1:00 min each
After run back the way you came, till you find your way to the beginning of this are we are in. You will have to click the panel that is on your right coming out of the hall. This will open Organism Laboratory Access Console. A door will open when you remove monsters that appear from clicking the console. There are seven consoles inside. Choosing the correct option will grant you more time (+10 seconds per correct option). A BM here makes things easier, while rest of party clears the room, one member does the quest chain.*Or a BL in intuition*
NOTE: the names in the phrases are not correctly translated but if you look for key words like destroy, off, and on you will get it right, also it's the bottom choice of every panel starting from first on left.
For Console 1, select “Let’s Pass”.
For Console 2, select “Turn off Console’s Power Device”.
For Console 3, select “Destroy the Console”.
For Console 4, select “Turn off Console’s Power Device”.
For Console 5, select “Destroy the Console”.
For Console 6, select “Let’s Pass”.
For Console 7, select “Activate the Console normally”.
tip: PLUMA COMES SOON. SO EITHER DON'T BM, AND GO KILL MOBS AND BM FOR PLUMA OR BM AND EXT FOR PLUMA.
Remove the monsters that appear after pressing a Console here. A door will open. Remove ARM-04 Hyper Trikrus. A warning message will appear and so will another boss, UMD-03B Perfectio Pluma. *1 BM*.Killing this boss DOES NOT GIVE YOU EXTRA TIME.Usually it's best to go BM when pluma spawns, then open chest go to next boss fast, before all cornuses spawn in room, and lure it away while extending.
Opening the chest in pluma's room too early can mean overluring cornuses, which is annoying seeing as this boss is though by himself.
When the Pluma is removed, CANCEL BM. Go in and then remove another boss, FPTA-01 Kustodi Flight.*DOUBLE* This guy hits hard. I advise you to move in fast once you've casted BM. Killing this boss will give you 1:40 mins.
tips: Mobs will spawn also in this room around the boss, stay close he spikes hard, so lure him to one of the corners and execrate him there. He also does an attack that singly downs one character and can repeat it more than once in a row..
AFTER killing flight you need to go back at beginning of the laboratory, where you teleport to from main hall, and click the last panel left...this will give u and ur party 10kk axp..
Pick up Mainframe Access Disk from this boss and run back to Laboratory entrance or die (faster like before). Click Center Hall Move Console to return there. Then move to Mainframe after clicking Mainframe Move Console there.
Here is where you really start spamming SP pots. By now you either have 2 bars or 1, not enough for what lies ahead.
After arriving at Mainframe, break electric wall together or it can 1hit you (you can waste 1 BM here if you wish and extend for next boss). Then UMD-04 Fuse Digitorum will appear. EXTEND or DOUBLE. Killing this boss will give you 1:20 mins.
ATTACKS: Huge AoEs and Spikes, he hits very very hard. He also teleports one of your members every once in a while just for fun xD
tips: Once you've destroyed electric wall lure Digitorum back behind close to the teleport location because the wall regenerates and if you die and come back you will have to kill the wall again.
After removing this Digitorum, click Mainframe Console far inside the area. There will be three bosses that will appear successively. These are the 3 forms of the final boss. Killing one of the forms will give you time and a chest. Last chest is the one that contains Drei Frame items.
These 3 forms aren't hard to kill, especially last form HP goes down fast, but they hit you very hard. Last one does so especially. If you die here odd and spam sp pots going DOUBLE for EVERY FORM. I heard that also if you don't kill the forms fast enough next form spawns anyways and you will have to deal with them at same time. If anyone can double check this.
The first one is MF-01 Eins Frame. Killing this boss give you 1:00 min. Kill it fast and as soon as it's dead cancel bm. This way you have time to cool BM while you wait 2nd for to spawn.
The second one is MF-02 Zwei Frame. Beware of its stun attacks.Killing this boss will give you 00:40 secs.
The final boss is MF-03 Drei Frame. Picks one character in party to kill, really hurts WIs. This form spawns almost immediately after you kill the 2nd, or if you're too slow even WHILE you're killing second one so i advise u to either and ur DOUBLE on him and execrate him and run, or cancel it fb execrates and run to door. Once ready go in again and give it all!
Have you removed the third one? Break the box. Then end the dungeon by clicking Mainframe Console.
Good luck to every one in achieving this dungeon's end.
PS: thanks go out to Chippo from NA for his first rough translation and to Dualric EU for the clarification on last part of the guide. Also to all the people that run it with me xD
UPDATE 1:Pictures are now working properly
UPDATE 2: Side quest before Oudibit added

I would also add that it is not wise to break the Pluma boss chest before you are ready to go for Kustodi, as the boss will be spawned when you break it and mobs spawn as well.
Also the brachiums that spawn at safe zone, I might be wrong here but they do not increase the timer, therefore there isn't much point to kill them (they actually help you find the right controller faster)

A Little heads up, since the update I've noticed that the control pannel options that give + or - 10 secs before the pluma have been changed...so now it's not only the 2nd choice in every1...Make sure to read em carefully and read the guide...the text has been swapped from top to bottom in 2 of em
So how easy is Maquinas now that you have BM3 ? lets say a full party of 180+ with bm3 + extend with each boss?
with bm3? xD

As for 7man party: Its like a garden walk, almost all runs are "No death runs". With 1 bm, we kill 2 boss, and time left on bm xD. All boss are dead before they can spike. Almost everyone with medium set and lv170 can do MO decently now.
Normally the above kill speed was achieved by IMBA parties only.
However to record time cant be much improved, since using only BM2 and a imba party most of the speed kills was achieved. Record can be improved by some few sec or fractions of a minutes only.
I think you should update your guide for bm3 xD.
