For an overview of Veil of Alaris pre-launch events, see this quest entry.

This is a pre-launch task leading up to the Veil of Alaris expansion, expected to be available only for a certain period of time ahead of VOA's launch.

It begins with a gnome named Chief Wood Engineer Gilanspring in the Steamfont Mountains. He's found in the far southeastern part of the Steamfont Mountains.

You say, 'Hail, Chief Wood Engineer Gilanspring'

Chief Wood Engineer Gilanspring says 'Hrmf. I'm a busy gnome. We've got a massive [project] under way here, and I really don't have time to spare.'

You say, 'What project?'

Chief Wood Engineer Gilanspring says 'You don't know about it? Well I don't have time to go into details. You should talk to Olim, he likes to chat. Then again, if you have that much spare time, maybe you could use it productively by [helping] out around here.'

You say, 'Helping, how?'

Chief Wood Engineer Gilanspring says 'We can always use hands doing the non-skilled stuff. I think you'll be useful doing some of those [tasks].'

You say, 'What tasks?'

Chief Wood Engineer Gilanspring says 'Nothing too difficult for you, I hope.'

A task window pops up with two tasks to choose from.

You have been assigned the task 'Dockbuilding - the Posts'.

In order to start the big project, the engineers need to build a dock for the thing to pull up next to. To build that, they will need some posts. The wood from the trees in Steamfont is, well, moist and soft. But it will do for the docks. The wood engineers have marked the selected pines by hammering gears into their trunks. You will need to get yourself a log. Go hack at one of the designated Fontpines. Make sure to use the axe device you were given.

Cut down some of the Fontpines with the Fontpine Cutting Device 0/3 (Steamfont Mountains)

Equip the cutting device and click it on trees (found throughout Steamfont) that have a gear stuck in the trunk. Upon doing so, you get a Fontpine Log.

Use a Fletching Kit to cut the pines into planks 0/3 (ALL)

Inside a Fletching Kit, combine a single log to create two Thick Fontpine Planks.

Create 3 Fontpine Posts using tradeskills 0/3 (ALL)

Inside a Fletching Kit, combine 2x "Thick Fontpine Plank" + 1x "Kunzar Glue" to create a post. (You need three of them.)

NOTE: See this recipe link for details about making the Kunzar Glue.

Deliver 3 Fontpine Posts to any wood engineer 0/3 (Steamfont Mountains)

Deliver 1 Fontpine Cutting Device to any wood engineer 0/1 (Steamfont Mountains)

- 1 Work Voucher

compared to the other task, which are all completed in Steamfont. The post task is a lot of effort to achieve and travel...non-caster you have to run to Old Sebilis for the Kunzar koi. and then forge roots which seem to be rare in bazaar (Zek)
Come visit my housing creations 20+ in Cedar Country Meadows, ZEK.

You can actually get "Dockbuilding -- The Posts" * "Dockbuilding -- Teh Planks" at the same time... but "Dockbuilding - The Posts" will take priority over "Dockbuilding -- the Planks"

To be clear, Posts will have to be completed before the Planks will get updates.
