I talked to the professor, Kojo, and Murphy, and none of them offered any of these pieces of equipment. Do you have to be doing a treasure hunt that requires them to get them? — Ali Irontoad (Talk) (Contributions) 16:37, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

yes you have to have a clue scroll co-ordiantes[edit source]

lol sexxxtant sounds funny

More facts needed for article[edit source]

1. What is the crafting level needed to make a sextant? Is it the same as a watch?

2. What crafting experience is gained when making a sextant?

3. Will Murphy give free replacement sextants, like Brother Kojo gives free replacement watches?

Size of Gielinor[edit source]

I may have a missunderstanding of how Sextants work, but I'm pretty sure we can use it to calculate the size of Gielinor, the planet. We know that the main continent, from port tyras to port phasmatys is about 50 degrees across, thus we should be able to conclude that there is much more out there than we've ever been able to see. Maybe it's all water, or maybe there are many other continents out there that we've just never been able to visit. Has anyone ever sailed all the way around?

Apparently, the one small area of Zanaris, Gielinor's moon, that we've been able to visit is constantly facing away from the planet, because we've never been able to see the planet from Zanaris. For that matter, I don't think we know if Gielinor has any other moons. I expect if it did, we'd have heard mention of them by now, but perhaps they're constantly orbiting on the side of the planet we've never been able to see, making one rotation per day.

Alright, serious work needed on this article[edit source]

I don't know if the article is just wrong, or if it is in severe need of clarification, but every time I have needed to use this article it has not been able to help me. So a couple things...

1) I cannot reclaim a sextant. I have one in my toolbelt. I am talking with the Observatory professor and having him explain sextants to me. I am then speaking with Murphy and he does not give me an option to reclaim a sextant. I am holding a co-ordinate clue scroll and have explored all dialogue options.

2) I cannot make a sextant at the clockwork bench of my POH. I have the highest level of clockwork bench, level four.

If anybody could provide further clarification as to why either of these things are not working for me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks! Mining.pngMoontemptMithril bar.png 02:20, December 26, 2016 (UTC)

I just tried and I was able to make one via a clockmaker's bench, so it must be something else. I couldn't reclaim it from Murphy (but I also didn't have a clue with me), so I guess the only way to get another if you already have it on your toolbelt is to make it. On the table, it was on the second list of options in case you overlooked it. ɳex undique 20:30, December 26, 2016 (UTC)
My options on the workbench are:
1) Clockwork mechanism
2) Toy horsey
3) Clockwork toy
I have not, however, completed the Observatory Quest. Have you completed it?

I have completed it, maybe you need to to get the ability to make it? I have 7 options on my bench: Clockwork mechanism, toy horsey, wooden cat, clockwork toy, sextant, watch, and penguin rock costumes (from a quest). Maybe you need to have a certain crafting level for it to appear? ɳex undique 21:41, December 26, 2016 (UTC)
Required Crafting level is 28, as per Crafting table 4, so yes I have the required level xD. For now, I will assume the quest must be required in order to complete it. After I complete it if that is true I will add it to the wiki. Also, do you think it's safe to say Murphy does not hand out additional sextants if sextants are owned, even if ownership means they are on the toolbelt? If so I can include that in the wiki as well once I do the quest. Mining.pngMoontemptMithril bar.png 15:17, December 27, 2016 (UTC)
