These here Argent Dawn people commissioned ol' Smokey to do a little demolition work for 'em. Smokey's mammy ain't raised no dummy. When gold coin is slapped on the table, Smokey's services are available. That's my motto!
Now I'd be willing to split the commission with you if you're willing to do a little legwork. Here's the deal: I'm going to head over to Plaguewood and mark the buildings we need destroyed. You gather the components for the bombs. Meet back here when you've got everything. Deal?
Trust ol' Smokey, <race>. The reward will be worth it. These Argent Dawn folk don't mess around when it comes to payment.
I can pay you half up front and half when the job is done.
This is a very expensive quest to complete for little reward. The real rewards come with the follow-up quest.
Neither this quest nor the followup quest give Argent Dawn reputation, but they do count toward the achievement.
Shopping list Edit
This list can be copied into a chat line or mail to your blacksmith and engineer, or used when buying raw materials:
2 Thorium bar 1 gold bar 4 Coarse Stone 22 Mithril Bar 10 Mageweave cloth 28 solid stone
The 2 Thorium Bar is a direct turn-in. The blacksmith (skill 150) needs the 1 Gold Bar and 4 Coarse Stone for the Golden Rod. The engineer (skill 235) needs the 22 Mithril Bar, 10 Mageweave Cloth and 28 Solid Stone for everything else.
Note that the Hi-Explosive Bomb recipe yields 4 bombs, so you only need to make 2 not 8.
All these metals take 1 ore to make 1 bar, in case you're buying ore.
