This is a seasonal shared task, appearing only through the Christmas season. For the 2008 Frostfell task additions, "a gigglegibber goblin" (in front of the small bank in the Plane of Knowledge) directs you:

You say, 'Hail, a gigglegibber goblin'

a gigglegibber goblin says 'Happy Frostfell to you, _____! Happy, happy, happy! But friends not all so happy. Poor Elba. Sad Rellith. Unhappy Cordys. Maybe you spread happiness to them! You find them up here on this building!'



This task is for levels 75+. It is a shared task with a 6-hour timer. You can collect the required items beforehand.

You say, 'Hail, Rellith Akkanar'

Rellith Akkanar says 'Hello. I'm sorry, but I really am not in the mood for holiday cheer right now. I hope you can [forgive] me.'

You say, 'I'll forgive you'

Rellith Akkanar says 'I... perhaps it will make me feel better to speak of it. You see my wife died just after the Frostfell celebrations last year. I have come to terms with my loss, but my son, Trellik, has grown sorrowful as the winter approached. Now he is morose. I felt that I might be able to cheer him somewhat by giving him some things that my wife owned. Some I refashioned, but others I simply had inscribed. But now those gifts are gone. Taken from me by a mechanical [gnome]!'

You say, 'A gnome?'

Rellith Akkanar says 'It was rusty and smelled of beer. It assaulted me on my return trip from Kaladim, where I had the engravings done. I would be very grateful to you if you could find a way to [recover] those gifts. I think that the gigglegibber goblin may know where they may be.'

You say, 'I'll recover it'

Rellith Akkanar says 'Thank you, _____! Don't forget to speak to the gigglegibber goblin!'

You have been assigned the task 'Misplaced Wishes'.

Rellith told you stories of his wonderful son. It was obvious that he cares for Trellik greatly, and the loss of the gifts he saved to buy for him has hurt him.

If you talk to the gigglegibber goblin again, it gives you hints as to where to go:

You say, 'Hail, a gigglegibber goblin'

a gigglegibber goblin says 'You talked to dragon man, didn't you. He say something about [rusty gnomes].'

You say, 'Rusty gnomes?'

a gigglegibber goblin says 'Gigglegibber not friends with rusty gnomes. But gigglegibber can see Frostfell presents. Gigglegibber smell rust in place with lots more rust. You find presents on flying island called Mechanotus. Or Mechanuts. Or something like that.'







Find and return Gift-wrapped Toy 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)

Find and return Brightly Polished Garnet Bracelet 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)

Kill Rusty Gnomework 0/1 (Fortress Mechanotus)

Find and return Trellik's lute 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)

The gift-wrapped toy is a groundspawn in Fortress Mechanotus. It's found outside the entrance to Meldrath's Majestic Mansion. If facing the entrance from a distance, you'll see three steamsuits. The spawn is in front of the easternmost of these three steamsuit mobs.

The bracelet drops from trash mobs near the Rusty Gnomework in Fortress Mechanotus.

The Rusty Gnomework is located east of the ground spawn at about /loc 1100, -800, 626. It hits for a max ~1,600; flurries; summons; and is immune to all crowd control. It spawns waves of adds (two rats each) at various health points (12 total). These adds hit for a max ~1,000; summon; and are stunnable/mezzable.

About midway through the fight, the Rusty Gnomework transforms into a goblin, "Rustnose, Frostclaw Thief" and a snowstorm develops within the zone. At this time, it gains three abilities: "Aura of Frost" (pulse effect around the mob, hits once per tick); "Permafrost Aura" (another aura with melee slow + DOT) and "Permafrost Snowball" (cast on random targets):

Aura of Frost: Single Target, Cold (-350)
1: Decrease Attack Speed by 40%

Permafrost Aura: Single Target, Cold (-450)
1: Decrease Attack Speed by 40%
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 1500 per tick

Permafrost Snowball: Unknown(39) 0', Cold (-450)
1: Decrease Movement by 60%
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 4000 per tick

Rusty Gnomework says 'Halt intruder!'

a rusty rat skitters towards you.
a rusty rat skitters towards you.

Rustnose, Frostclaw Thief leaps out of what appears to be a rust-painted wooden gnome suit. 'Clever, you are. Very clever! But without my disguise I can use all of my power against you!'

a rusty rat has been slain by _____!
a rusty rat's corpse squeaks as its bones shatter.

Rustnose, Frostclaw Thief has been slain by _____!
Rustnose, Frostclaw Thief's corpse releases a final gasp of freezing cold breath.

Trellik's Lute drops from its corpse.



Hail a gigglegibber goblin 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)

You say, 'Hail, a gigglegibber goblin'

a gigglegibber goblin says 'Gigglegibber feel strange. A feeling in stomach. Not happy feeling of good food and hot chocolate. Feeling like... feeling not good. Maybe worried. That might be what feeling is. Hear that maybe Santug killed. Not believing it, not gigglegibber. But maybe you speak to Maynar and be sure. Gigglegibber not like this feeling.'

Rellith's elation at the return of the lost gifts was obvious. He suggested that you should talk to Maynar Furrwik, who is trying to discover more about these mysterious thefts.

Brightly Polished Garnet Bracelet

This must be rare or uncommon. I've killed every different NPC from the first level to the top level where you kill Rusty and grab the ground spawn.

a steamwork soldier
a steamwork striker
a steamwork trooper
a mechanic (brownie)
a mechanic (gnome)
a minotaur trooper
a shock striker
a slaver
a steamwork shock striker
a steamwork shock soldier
a shock trooper (minotaur)
etc...
etc...

Spent about 2 hours mostly up on the top floor killing. Nothing, so I'm guessing this can drop from any NPC and isn't specific to the minotaur modeled shock troopers.

Good luck on farming this. Hope you guys have better luck than I'm having.

I got this task and went about finding 6 gifts, and 6 bracers...completely unnecessary. One char needs to get bracer, gift, and lute off Rusty and all toons in mission get credit and a snowball.
