    The Mechanimists are a religious faction centered within Qud mainly comprised of mutant humanoids. The faction is first encountered through the zealot of the Six Day Stilt preaching around Joppa in all Joppa starts. They prominently gather at the Six Day Stilt at the edge of Moghra'yi, the Great Salt Desert, and at other late-game dungeons, and can be found scattered across the map of Qud.

    Legendary Mechanimists do not typically spawn in lairs, preferring to show up in dynamic encounters, wandering towards the direction of the Six Day Stilt. The journal will not update with their location if one is spotted. Dynamically generated Legendary Mechanimists spawn with one Eaters' nectar injector in their inventory.


    Despite them belonging to the same faction, there are separate branches of Mechanimism. The main branch gathers primarily in the Six Day Stilt. The most powerful preacher there is the High Priest, Eschelstadt II. They worship the six Argent Fathers, especially Shekhinah. The majority of their beliefs can be found within the homilies shouted by various Mechanimist preachers, as well as the The Canticles Chromaic, Verses XVII-XXIV that is found in the inventory of zealots and preachers. According to them, the Kasaphenscence created technology. Because of their godly origins, mortals are undeserving of possessing or using these artifacts. This does not affect their combat AI; all Mechanimists will use artifacts if they are equipped.

    There is a separate branch that resides within the depths of Bethesda Susa instead. This branch is led by Phineae Hoshaiah, the High Priest of the Rock. According to his look description, they believe that one of the Argent Fathers is currently inhabiting the baetyl there. Which one is not specified.

    The third branch of belief views the Argent Fathers as only earthy beings, and worship only the Kasaphescence as a deity.[1] Jacobo is the only known member of this branch.
