Gnomish Miner’s Cap

Go towards the Broodlands entrance where you will find a Gnome named Xoramin Sprysproket.

You say, ‘Hail, Xoramin Sprysprocket.’

Xoramin Sprysprocket says ‘Prismatus! It’s about time they sent me some help. Lend a hand, will you? We’re at an impasse here and without additional supplies, my mecha-miners will never be completed. Fetch me the [materials], and I can get them up and running.’

You say, ‘What materials?’

Xoramin Sprysprocket strokes his beard thoughtfully, ‘Well, the first
thing that these mecha-miners need are replacement joints. Without oil and proper lubrication, their knees seize up or worse… snap. I’ll need a whole bunch more to replace the ruined legs on my first batch of creations. Go to Ak’anon and seek out Basbustiel. Tell her I sent you and she’ll give you the parts.’

Head to Ak’anon and find Basbustiel at +720, +92 on the pier at the
large green lake.

You say, ‘Hail, Basbustiel’

Basbustiel says, ‘You’re a chatty one, aren’t you? Did [Xoramin send you]?’

You say, ‘Xoramin sent me.’

Basbustiel says ‘He did, did he? Well if you’re the courier, then here’s the replacement parts he requested. Tell him that I’m not going to send him anything else unless I get a look at his machine blueprints. I want to see exactly what he’s up to.’

You receive Sack of Oiled Joints. It fits in a container, so no worries about having an open slot. Return to Lavastorm Mountains and hand this back into Xoramin.

Xoramin Sprysprocket says ‘I hope Basbustiel didn’t give you any trouble, Prismatus. Wait a moment. She said what?! That uncreative know-it-all hack thinks she’s got me cornered, but little does she know the the fine details are mostly up here…’ He taps at his forehead, winking. ‘Here – take her these half-finished schematics. She probably won’t even know the difference. Now leave me be. I need some peace and quiet to fix my Mecha-Miners.’

Head to Ak’anon again to give Basbustiel the Half-Finished Clockwork
Blueprints you receive.

Basbustiel scans the blueprints, ‘Very good, _____. This is impressive design work. I can see where he’s going with it, but his creations won’t operate properly without a few modifications. He needs a fuel source with more kick called an Unstable Concoction, a Class-XIII Motivator, a Portable Fuel Burner, and a Polished Glass Lens [These four items are linked for you]. I’ll donate the burner. Regarding the fuel source, I think you should ask Gamenn Everhot in Everhot Forge of Kaladim for help. As for the rest, you might check near the mechanical windmills in the Plane of Tranquility or Steamfont for spare parts. Ask the locals, or crack open a few clockworks. You know, I’m afraid of what would happen to Xoramin if I wasn’t here to look out for him. That coghead really is helpless sometimes.’

She hands you a Portable Fuel Burner. Time to head to Kaladim.

Gamenn Everhot can be found in North Kaladim by the pier over the water at Everhot Forge, location +366, -112.

You say, ‘Hail, Gamenn Everhot’

Gamenn Everhot says ‘Aye, somethin’ I can do for ye?’

You say, ‘I need some fuel’

Gamenn Everhot belts out a rumbling chortle, ‘Oh, ye be wantin’ some fuel with kick to ‘er? Poke around in our mines until ye find some coal. Then I’ll be needin’ a pile of sulfur from the mines of Solusek’s Eye. Lastly, short fuse. Bring me those three ingredients, and I’ll show ye somethin’ that’ll be all the kick ye’ll ever need.’

Kaladim Coal can be found as a ground spawn in the mines in the same
zone at 783, 213, -64.

Solusek Sulfur can be found as a ground spawn in Solusek’s Eye at -545, -650.

Short Fuse drops from various low-level mobs around Lavastorm Mountains (confirmed off a magma basilisk warrior).

Bring the three pieces back to Gamenn in North Kaladim and hand them all in.

Gamenn Everhot grinds the components together and carefully attaches the fuse to the resulting putty. It looks dangerous.

You receive an Unstable Concoction, the second of the four pieces.

Run over to Plane of Tranquility, and go down to the windmill where
you’d zone into Plane of Innovation. Upon entering the windmill, look
around the crates to your left for ‘a weary scavenger’.

You say, ‘Hail, a weary scavenger’

a weary scavenger is disheveled and badly bruised. She winces as you
approach, ‘So, did you come to ask about this Class-XIII Motivator (The item is linked for you)? I uncovered it, buried in some garbage deep in the halls of Innovation. I knew it must be valuable, but my excitement I made too much noise. Me elation at finding it only served to attract the unwelcome attention of several bucketheads, after which I ran and barely escaped with my life. So, what say you? [Yes]? It’s all anyone else is interested about, and I’d wager you’re no different.’

You say, ‘Yes’

a weary scavenger says ‘Well, after risking my life to acquire it I can’t just give such a thing away now, can I? How about you bring me a Raw Diamond, Star Ruby, Fire Opal, and oh… something to quench my parching thirst. How about a Fuzzlecutter Formula 5000? (Again, these items are linked).

Head wherever you need to go and grab these items. After collecting
the items, head back, and hand in the items to the scavenger.

a weary scavenger uncorks and quaffs Fuzzlecutter’s Formula, swallowing the liquid noisily. In a few brief gulps, the vial is empty. She smashes the bottle on the tiles and unceremoniously wipes her chin with one sleeve. ‘Now that was refreshing! While I adore the gems, the most beautiful trinkets in the world hold no value if you’re too thirsty to enjoy them. Here’s your Motivator, _____. You earned it.’

You receive a Class-XIII Motivator. Three down, one to go.

The last part requires you go to Steamfont Mountains and search around the windmills for a spawn named ‘a defective automaton’. It is light blue to a 66, doubles for 200, is immune to changes in run speed, has a TON of hit points, and flurries about once a minute. Once it’s dead, it drops two of the Polished Glass Lens that you need, so bring a friend that needs it too.

Take the four parts back to Xoramin in Lavastorm and hand them in for
your reward.

Xoramin Sprysprocket says ‘Your assistance is much appreciated, _____. You’ll have to excuse me for being so curt, but I must get back to work. These Mecha-Miners are nearly perfected, if I can just stop them from exploding. Oh, here is a little something for your time. If you aren’t completely satisfied, I may have something else that would interest you. Simply return that reward and I’ll swap it.

You receive a Gnomish Miner’s Cap.
