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 Textile Engineer Treddle in the Steamfont Mountains. He's found in the far southeastern part of the Steamfont Mountains at location -1210, -1390, 4 (next to Hobbs).
You say, 'Hail, Chief Textile Engineer Treddle'
Chief Textile Engineer Treddle says 'Hi! I'm Treddle. I've been given the exciting task of designing the textile portions of the project. Mostly that is the envelope. And one massive envelope it is! It's going to be a lot of work to stitch it together, and we'll need a lot of [materials].'
You say, 'What materials?'
Chief Textile Engineer Treddle says 'Mostly we just need a lot of canvas. Sailcloth will work. We have to treat it, but that's part of my special recipe and I'm not about to tell you what that is! We'll also need a lot of rope... a lot of it. I don't suppose you know anything about airships? I find the whole thing intriguing. It's not something I'd ever expected to be [involved] in.'
You say, 'Why did you get involved?'
Chief Textile Engineer Treddle says 'I'm a tailor by trade, but they figured that since I'd done some large orders of some very large suits that I'd had more experience than anyone else. Some ridiculous idea a Halfling came in with one day. Something about inviting a dozen giants to his wedding, just for a bit of contrast. I made the suits, amazing work if you ask me, but I don't think the wedding ever happened. Too bad, I would have loved to see my work on real giants. This [work] will be different than that, though. I try to make my clothing breath, but here they want the opposite in the cloth for the project.'
You say, 'How's the work?'
Chief Textile Engineer Treddle says 'It is fun work, even if there will be a lot of it. Speaking of work, I don't suppose you can find the time to gather up some supplies for me? It's a difficult [task], and I don't really have any people to spare.'
You say, 'I'm up for the task'
Chief Textile Engineer Treddle says 'Wonderful! That's fantastic. Thank you so much!'
You have been assigned the task 'Gondola Hull - Waterproofing'.
Even though the project isn't intended to be used in water, it would certainly be a failure to not waterproof the gondola to allow for that possibility. To do that, the engineers will need some simple waterproofing. The engineers have developed a recipe that they think will work well for the material of the gondola hull. Get some Palm Leaf Oil. Make it or buy it, the engineers don't care how you get it. The second component is Gnomish Spirits. The engineers assured you that Gnomish Spirits are extremely useful and cure almost every ailment. Find something called Water Elemental Residue. The engineers say that can be found inside the corpses of just about any water elemental. They suspect you may have to kill them to get it.
Collect 2 Palm Leaf Oils 0/2 (ALL)
See this recipe for information about producing Palm Leaf Oil.
Palm Leaves are foraged in the Plane of Earth.
Collect 1 Gnomish Spirits 0/1 (ALL)
This is bought from Brewing vendors. Caden Zharik in the Plane of Knowledge and Rylin Coil in Ak'Anon are among those who sell it (both CTRL+F / Findable in their zones).
Collect 2 Water Elemental Residues 0/2 (ALL)
This is known to drop from Level 60+ water elemental models in Katta Castrum, Sunderock Springs, Infected Paw, and Crystallos.
Create 1 Simple Waterproofing Oil using tradeskills (ALL)
Combine the five items in a brew barrel.
Deliver 1 Sample Waterproofing Oil to Chief Textile Engineer Treddle 0/1 (Steamfont Mountains)
Treddle took a sip of the waterproofing and smiled his thanks to you.
