Before you dive in!
Before you dive into the grind, there are a couple of things to do first that will make life much easier for you.
1. Create THE Macro
Your rat hunting macro.. to hunt rats.. and kill them.. and LOOT them! For the rats in Toks, drop shiny shiny artifacts. And you will need them… lots and lots of them!
This macro, should be placed in a spammable location on your bar (I like to key bind mine to my mouse4 button)
Rats start appearing in Toks after around 5 mins of being in the dungeon.
You should also have picked up the weekly to kill 50 rats (after your first convo with Dead Simon), make sure to complete it every week!
HINT: If you are in Toks with a friend, change your loot setting to ‘free for all’ so you can split up to kill rats and still be able to loot them!
2. Download THE add on
You will notice that once inside Toks, pressing M gives you very little assistance at all.. There is no map!. But thanks to the wonderful Alleja from Zaviel.. we have an add on for that 🙂
The forum thread about this creation is HERE at the bottom of the first post is the download link. See the page how to install an add on for assistance.
Your shiny new map should look like this >>>
The map has an awesome added bonus.. it will show you EXACTLY where the rats are hiding!
On the map, your character is shown by a small blue dot. On pressing your rat macro, the nearest rat will be targeted and that will show on the map as a yellow dot.
This makes rat hunting your new favourite pass time… enjoy!
3. Clear a bag out!
You will be killing rats.. a lot of rats.. at least 50 a week.. preferably more! All of those rats will give you shiny artifacts to pick up, as well as notoriety with Dead Simon and some Tok tokens. Once you have completed the rat parts artifact set, you will need to store your duplicates.. all of them!
If you have space in your main characters bags, clear out some room and start stacking them up.. If your main char is limited on space, delegate an alt to post these artifacts to for long term storage.
You can see more info about Rat Parts in the ‘How To Farm It’ section below.
4. Sort out a Running Spec
When you first start in Toks dungeon you wont ‘need’ a running spec, most of the content can be done at normal speed. However, it will certainly make your life easier when you reach the more difficult timed puzzles.
Every class has souls that can increase your running speed a lot. Character running speed isnt usually something that is needed in rift, its usually much more about how well you heal or how high your DPS is!
So i have created a page dedicated to Running Specs
How to get Inside Toks for the First Time
There are two ways to get inside Toks dungeon for the first time.
The first way is to find a ‘portal’ in Alittu.
The portals look like a small 20 sided dice which you can click to activate the teleport.
There is an album of entrance locations here http://imgur.com/a/JNhZz credit to Boase.
These portals are hidden all around Alittu, under tables, high up on beams, on top of the buildings etc. There can be up to 5 active at any time per shard. Once someone has clicked the portal to enter Toks, that portal will disappear and reappear at a different location. (Use Opie or your Jetpack mount to help!)
This is the only way to get inside Toks as a solo player for the very first time.
Buying Your Own Tok Box
Once inside the dungeon.. the farm begins. Your first goal should be to buy your very own Tok-Box.
A Tok-Box is a device that sits in your bags and allows you to portal into Toks dungeon whenever you want.
The Tok-Box will only work if you are stood in Alittu, or you can use it when you are already in Toks Dungeon to port back to the reception room.
On entering Toks for the first time, you will be in the reception room. This is a large rectangular room with a large door directly behind you that will port you back to Alittu, a door to your left with a single dot above it for the single player entrance to the puzzles and a door to your right with two dots above it for the duo-player entrance to the puzzles. In front of you, on a platform sits the master of puzzles.. Dead Simon.
You will need to speak to Dead Simon first. He will welcome you to Toks dungeon and give you your first weekly quest.. to kill 50 rats. You will need to be sure your quest log is not full during this conversation, if you already have a full quest log it may bug out the conversation.
What is Your Goal?
