Quest text Edit
Expert engineering yields two distinct disciplines: gnome and goblin. Clearly, goblin engineering is the choice of all brilliant engineers. Learn to master the world through the judicious use of high explosives and fantastic gear!
I can smell fresh recruits much like I can an excellent blasting powder - from a mile away. Have you come seeking to learn about the mastery of the explosion?
Well <name>, you were wise to seek my tutelage! Any schlep can become an expert at the basics of engineering - the gnomes and their irradiated home of Gnomeregan are proof of that. It takes a strong mind and a steady hand (emphasis on STEADY) though to master the discipline of Goblin Engineering.
Keep your ears perked <name>, and you might learn something.
You will receive:
- 420 XP (or 2 40 at level 70)
