This quest is for good aligned gnome warriors.

You say, 'Hail, Narron Jenork'

Narron Jenork says 'Pleased to meet you Gearsword! I am Narron Jenork High Watchman of Ak'anon. I am one of the most skilled Watchmans in all of Ak'anon and I pride myself on training the most promising young warriors that Ak'anon has to offer. Are you a young gnome warrior?'

You say, 'I am a young gnome warrior'

Narron Jenork says 'Well we can never get enough warriors around these parts as far as I am concerned! Now if you are a new warrior then you must go through the training to become a true watchman. I have a series of tests that will require you to test both your hunting and navigational skills. These tests will not leave you with nothing to show for your work because upon completing them you will be outfitted with a full suit of Initiate Watchmans armor. Are you [ready to be tested]?'

You say, 'I am ready to be tested'

Narron Jenork says 'Well then lets get you started! First I will present you with this Watchmans Mail Assembly kit to gather assorted items from both your training grounds of the Steamfont Mountains and in our great town of Akanon. You will then combine the different recipes of components in your kit to create a material that will be used with a mold in a forge to create your Watchman armor. When you are ready to craft a specific piece all you must do is tell me what armor piece you [want to craft] and I will present you with the recipe for the material along with the mold. I have the material recipes necessary to make Initiate Watchman [Helms], [Bracers], [Armguards], [Boots], [Greaves], [Gauntlets] and [Breastplates].'

You say, 'I want to craft gauntlets'

Narron Jenork says 'Having the necessary protection on your hands and wrists will prevent any serious injuries that would make you unable to defend yourself. To create your gauntlet material you will need to combine 3 Bricks of Crude Bronze, 1 Runaway Clockwork Gearbox, 1 Young Ebon Drakewing, and 1 Minotaur Scalp in your assembly kit. Once you have created the proper material take it to a forge along with this mold to fashion your very own Initiate Watchmans Gauntlets.'

Gear box

I found the gearbox and motor off one of the little clockworks. A runaway I believe. One of the little level 5 or six ones between the Ak'Annon gate and the windmills.
who drops the runaway clockwork gearbox

Since the infamous 9/5 patch (the solo nerf that wasn't), merchants can hold up to 80 items.... I found most of the items I needed to finish (or even start) the quests on merchants in the steamfont area...a notable exception being a coyote pelt, but that's a post for another newbie quest. =)

A runaway clockwork gearbox will work for this quest. Finished it last night. I got really lucky to! =) Everything that i killed seem to have what i wanted on the first kill! anyway. good luck to all of you that try and do this quest. Safe Hunting!

Apparently, yes, they do drop. I bought one from a Chanter who didn't really need it! I think I had to buy the gearbox, too, but since Plague Rat Tails sell for 1.5pp to a vendor, building up the cash to buy one isn't that tough. And, for the record, the pic for the Drakewing isn't a bat wing (like I expected), but of a bat fur. Huh? Good luck to the rest of you Gearswords questing for this!

I just killed two young ebon drakes but they droped ebon drake wings not YOUNG ebon drake wings, and they didn't work for this quest. Please let us know what the young ebon drakewing drops from.

You killed a Lesser Ebon Drakeling, same as one that one of my guildmates left for me. It didn't work for me, either. I'm still farming the regular Ebon Drakelings in the valley below the Druid circle; no luck so far. I think I'm just going to level up to 13th, and look elsewhere for some gauntlets. Maybe someone can cook me up a set of Banded ones, to match the rest of my armor...

NO, I made sure that I was hunting Young ebon drakes, and after I killed it I clicked on it to loot it and was overjoyed to see a wing, but that joy turned to sorrow when I saw that the name of the wing was 'Ebon drake wing'. but I figured I would try it anyway since it did drop from a Young ebon drake. But when I hit combine, I was told that I could not combine those items in that type of container. I went looking again and the very next young ebon drake I killed also had a wing but, it too was a 'ebon drake wing' and not the much needed 'young ebon drakewing'. BTW: both of the drakes were between lesser faydark and the new minotaur camp.

Phooey! Well, back to farming Ebon Drakelings at the druid ring valley. I just found the Young Ebon Drakelings the other day while camping Gorehorn with a small group. I thought I was onto something there...

You know, I have a Young Ebon Drakeling Ribcage, which I think dropped off of the Ebon Drakelings, rather than the bigger ones. I think VI has some serious crap programming on this one.

Where do the wings drop?

For those who have gotten these gauntlets, could you state which drake you killed?I killed plenty of youngs and still no drop...

Judging from the posts, the wing drops from an ebon drakeling, they also apeer to be a rare drop. I have been hunting these with my druid since she has tracking, there are two consentrations of these in steamfront. One around the newbie area by the druid ring, and the other is the area around the dragon skeleton. the area that the draklings are in around the dragon bones is a fairly large one though, but there seem to be a slighty higher number of them if you can locate them.
Drop rate on Young Drakeling Wing?

I've tried for 8 hours over two days to try to get a Young Drakeling Wing to drop. How often is anyone else seeing them? I've gotten two ribcages, three ruined scales, one pristine scales, and two biles off the lowbie drakes. What gives?

Can't Combine in Forge
# May 11 2002 at 9:04 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, I managed to combine all but the mold in the toolkit he gives you and produced the sheet metal looking "enchanted guantlet material", but when I attempt to take the gauntlet material the kit produces and combine it in the forge with the mold it refuses.

I have also tried adding water flask, short ale, short beer, bottle of milk, bottle, gnomish spirits each time similar to some of the other recipes in this quest line and to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Agreed I have had the same thing happen. Use the forge not facing the wood elf vendor. I think she messed with the forge.
