This quest involves one of Oglethorpe's Homing Robots quest chain.


Bring the distress beacon to Oglethorpe's homing robot.

Quest text

You have uncovered some sort of strange, egg-shaped device made from metal. Fiddling with one of its knobs springs the egg to life, as it opens up into some sort of gnomish robotic contraption! A voice from inside the robotic egg crackles to life.

"The name's Oglethorpe, and my homing robot has gone missing! I will reward you for its recovery! Please take this beacon to the robot. Excellent, I now have computed the coordinates for you! It crashed near the Gaping Chasm in Tanaris!"


You appear to have uncovered the wreckage of... a robotic chicken?  The voice from within the egg crackles to life again:

"Yes, excellent work!  This is indeed my homing robot, though my sensors indicate that it needs a jump start before it can fly back to Booty Bay for repairs.  Go ahead and place the beacon inside the rover.  The beacon will take care of the rest!"


You place the egg... distress beacon... inside the chicken... homing robot.

Hums and whirs are heard from inside the robot as it struggles to stand up.  After the robot comes to life, Oglethorpe's voice is heard once more, but now from inside the robot:

"OOX-17/TN is working at least, but it needs major repairs!  It is much too heavy for you to carry it... but I think I have an idea.  Are you up for watching over it some more?"


Upon completion of this quest you will gain:


The Homing Robot can be found just east (and north) of the Gaping Chasm, among the hills at, (60,65).

Level range48-50
ZonesStranglethorn Vale
The Hinterlands

Oglethorpe's Homing Robots is not so much a chain of quests, as a series of prerequisites enabling a concluding quest.

In each of 3 zones, an OOX homing robot (which looks like a robotic chicken) has been lost, and needs rescuing.

By hunting in each of these zones (for Tanaris, also in Zul'Farrak), you will eventually run across the corresponding homing beacon. Each homing beacon offers a quest to find the corresponding homing robot. Once you have found the robot, you are offered a quest to rescue it.

These rescues involve following the robot to a point where it can take off on its own:

Each time, the robot will be attacked twice or three times by groups of 3 or 4 (depending on the particular ambush) mobs. Also, the robot will attract the attention of any wandering mobs along the way.

Complete all 3 escort and beacon missions, and Oglethorpe Obnoticus will reward you with a scale model of the OOX robot... With the combat and homing mechanisms disabled, of course. Wouldn't want it pecking someone's eye out...
