A Whirl with a Wind-Up Warrior is a boss quest in Habitica. In addition to receiving rewards, completing this quest will unlock the ability to purchase Wind-Up Hatching Potions at the Market for 2 Gems. The quest scroll can be purchased from the Mysterious Time Travelers for one Mystic Hourglass (meaning that this quest is only available to parties that have a member who at some time has subscribed for three months consecutively).

Clankton's HP (1000) makes this a long quest and its strength multiplier (1) makes this a trivial quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in between three and four weeks. This quest is recommended for lower level (less than level 25) characters and smaller parties.

Description[edit | edit source]

Habit City is seldom quiet, but you weren’t prepared for the cacophony of creaks, squeaks and screams escaping Good Timekeeping, Habitica’s finest clockwork emporium. You sigh--you just wanted your watch fixed. The proprietor, known only as “Great and Powerful”, tumbles out the door, pursued by a clanking copper colossus!

“Ki-! Ki-! Ki!” it clangs, arms smashing up and down. Its gears grind and screech in protest.

“My robot Clankton has gone mad! It’s trying to kill me!” the supposedly Powerful one shrieks.

Even with a broken watch, you can tell when it’s time to fight. You leap forward to defend the panicking watchmaker. @Vikte and @a_diamond also step up to help!

“Ki-! Ki-! Ki-!” Clankton chants with each blow. “Mew!”

Wait, was that mechanical mewling amidst the murderous monotone?

Objective(s)[edit | edit source]

Defeat the Clankton.

On Completion[edit | edit source]

As you dodge the attacks, you notice something odd: a stripy brass tail sticking out of the robot’s chassis. You plunge a hand amid the grinding gears and pull out… a trembling wind-up tiger cub. It snuggles against your shirt.

The clockwork robot immediately stops flailing and smiles, its cogs clicking back into place. “Ki-Ki-Kitty! Kitty got in me!”

“Great!” the Powerful says, blushing. “I’ve been working hard on these wind-up pet potions. I guess I lost track of my new creations. I’ve been missing my ‘Tidy the workshop’ daily a lot lately…”

You follow the tinkerer and Clankton inside. Parts, tools and potions cover every surface. “Powerful” takes your watch, but hands you a few potions.

“Take these. Clearly they’ll be safer with you!”
