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 Engineer Dougal in the Steamfont Mountains. He's found in the far southeastern part of the Steamfont Mountains (location -1275, -1060, 0 -- overlooking the pit).

You say, 'Hail, Chief Engineer Dougal'

Chief Engineer Dougal says 'Hello. Pretty busy here, you know. Big [project] and all that. What can I do for you?'

You say, 'What's this project?'

Chief Engineer Dougal says 'I'm sure you've heard. We're building an immense rigid airship. It will be a masterpiece when we're done. It will be a dream come true for most of us. Despite the [danger] that prompted this project, we're all very excited about it. This is the sort of amazing project that comes along once in a lifetime, if that. All of Ak'Anon is working to make this project happen. Are you [interested] in helping?'

You say, 'I'm interested'

Chief Engineer Dougal says 'That's nice to hear. I might have a [task] for you, but you should check with my chief engineers, they certainly could use some help.'

You say, 'What task?'

Chief Engineer Dougal says 'Hrmm...'

A task window pops up with a single task to choose.

You have been assigned the task 'Gondola Envelope - Base and Exhaust'.

Dougal told you that it was his task to build the housing for the furnace and the exhaust grating. To do that he will need some rare ingredients. He needs something called Heavy Copper, which can only be found in the Plane of Innovation. He also needs Condensed Sphalerite Ore, which he has heard only comes out of a place called Stoneroot. He has no idea where that might be. Kill the corroded prototypes, they are probably corrupted because of the Heavy Copper they hold. Kill some of the things called witheran. It seems they eat small bits of Sphalerite and something in their digestive tract changes it into what we need.



Find some Heavy Copper 0/2 (Plane of Innovation)

Find some Condensed Sphalerite 0/2 (Stoneroot Falls)

Kill "a corroded prototype" in the Plane of Innovation and any witheran mobs in Stoneroot Falls. These aren't actual item drops. You'll see these types of emotes as you kill the mobs:

a corroded model has no copper
a corroded model drops a heavy piece of copper

a witheran has no ore.
a witheran feeder has no ore.
a witheran drops a bit of condensed sphalerite ore.
a witheran feeder drops a bit of condensed sphalerite ore.

Deliver the copper and sphalerite to Dougal 0/1 (Steamfont Mountains)

You say, 'Hail, Chief Engineer Dougal'

The smelting engineer nodded when you gave him the items.

Chief Engineer Dougal says 'Thank you, friend. These will be very useful for my work.'

If you do not have a key for Innovation, you can go right from the zone-in and find at least two of them, one right behind gnome's shack.

Find some Heavy Copper 0/2 (Plane of Innovation)

Find some Condensed Sphalerite 0/2 (Stoneroot Falls)

Kill "a corroded prototype" in the Plane of Innovation and any witheran mobs in Stoneroot Falls. (Are these straight kill updates, or an actual item drop?)

Both are kill updates, no item drop necessary.

"a corroded model has no copper"
"a corroded model drops a heavy piece of copper"

"a witheran has no ore."
"a witheran feeder has no ore."
"a witheran drops a bit of condensed sphalerite ore."
"a witheran feeder drops a bit of condensed sphalerite ore."

? ? ?

(Last step?)

"Deliver the copper and sphalerite to Dougal" 0/1 (Steamfont Mountains)

(Missing and closing dialogues needed.)

[Sun Oct 23 12:31:49 2011] You say, 'Hail, Chief Engineer Dougal'
[Sun Oct 23 12:31:49 2011] Your task 'Blimp Envelope - Base and Exhaust' has been updated.
[Sun Oct 23 12:31:49 2011] The smelting engineer nodded when you gave him the items.
[Sun Oct 23 12:31:49 2011] Chief Engineer Dougal says 'Thank you, friend. These will be very useful for my work.'
