    I have spent the last few nights watching my Rock Drake grow up and decided to put it to good use.
    Your days of getting Water Cans, Glow Sticks and Metal Hatchfame Blueprints are over.

    Aberration isn't The Island and dismounting for a Beacon should be rewarding, especially given the risk.
