This quest is only available to Engineers who have not already specialized, and who have a minimum 200 skill in Engineering.
Quest text Edit
Expert engineering yields two distinct disciplines: gnome and goblin. I only bother to mention goblin engineering because I'm a fair trainer. They like to make things that blow up, and they rarely care what is in the way - even themselves.
<name>, read this manual. If you want to learn how to blow yourself up, then take it to Nixx Sprocketspring in Gadgetzan. Remember - membership is permanent and prevents joining the other discipline, so make sure this is what you want before finishing his task.
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)
This is part of the series of quests needed to complete Goblin Engineering specialization. Please see that page for more details.
