- Clear enemies from the workshop.
- Activate the workshop to claim it and fight contesting player characters.
Across the map are a number of public workshops and any player character may attempt to claim them. Once claimed, the player character will also periodically called upon to defend the workshop from one or more waves of enemies. When the player character gets close enough to an unclaimed workshop, the Claim Workshop quest will automatically activate. The player character is prompted to clear the workshop area of any enemies in the area, or in case that all enemies are already dead, to claim the workshop. Activating the workbench will start a capture timer, during which other player characters in the area can contest the attempt to claim the workshop. Once claimed, the player character has a short period of time (about 90 seconds) to build defenses before the first Defend Workshop quest begins, though this preparation is completely optional.
Enemy spawns are randomized for each workshop location and include the following:
