We’re here to collect all of the artifacts, relics, antiquities and oddities that Nagrand has to offer! Currently, we’re hiring surveyors, excavators, adventurers… you name it! If you’re interested in getting your hands dirty, talk to Gazmolf Futzwangler over at Stonecrag Gorge. He’s the goblin in charge of this expedition!
After completing a couple of simple quests in Stonecrag Gorge, head to Broken Precipice in the north of the zone. Besides finding Grebin Fastfizzle in a bit of a predicament and one of the most amusing things I’ve seen on the beta so far (thanks Cool), be sure to loot any chests in the area. Each will contain a Highmaul Relic and a variable number of Gorian Artifact Fragments. A number of mobs may also be farmed for Highmaul Relics on the northern side of the river.
Each item rewards a variable amount of reputation:
Seek out the following elites for an additional 500 rep after handing in their prized drops to Gazmolf Futzwangler at the Ruins of Na’gwa (located by the fork in the road, west of Lok’rath).
- Aogexon’s Fang – warp stalker
- Bergruu’s Horn – clefhoof
- Dekorhan’s Tusk – Elekk
- Direhoof’s Hide – talbuk
- Gagrog’s Skull – gronn named Gagrog the Brutal
- Mu’gra’s Head – riverbeast
- Thek’talon’s Talon – bird of prey
- Xelganak’s Stinger – wasp
- Vileclaw’s Claw – raptor
There are two quartermasters located in Ashran and Nagrand.
- Steamwheedle “Preservation” Society Tabard
- Domesticated Razorback – mount
- a pile of gold with protruding shovels
For those wondering if their Bloodsail Admiral status will affect this rep grind, Jonathan LeCraft confirmed it won’t be an issue.
You’ll find a lot of Steamwheedle members scattered around Nagrand including this slightly crazed castaway hidden behind a waterfall. I suspect he’s been there a while because he kept calling for his companion Wibson.
I just love how much of a role archaeology is playing this expansion, from jumping puzzles to a certain pet trainer I’ll be able to battle.
