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 two tasks to choose from.

You have been assigned the task 'Ballast and Ornamentation - Really Big Gear'.

The engineers have discovered that the ship might be a little back heavy. So to help vent ballast heat and rebalance the entire ship, they have decided to add some decorative gears to the front. Several teams are seeking the proper gear with the needed properties, such as weight and heat transference. They would like you to seek a possible solution as well. Speak with Nitram Anizok. He has created a useful but potentially risky device that might allow you to collect a large gear without having to carry it as a large gear.



Speak with Nitram Anizok 0/1 (Plane of Innovation)

Nitram is usually found in the small building in the northwestern part of the Plane of Innovation.

Find Unstable power Cells to run the EDRD 0/2 (Plane of Innovation)

This step updates as you kill mobs in the zone. There is nothing to loot.

Find a suitable enormous gear for the EDRD to shrink 0/1 (Plane of Innovation)

Go into the middle of the factory (past the locked door -- a Xanamech Nezmirthafen kill may be required to open the door) and stand in the middle of the room where Giwin Mirakon is (LOC = -17, 1). Put the EDRD into a top inventory/bag slot and right click it. You will get the update.

Tell Chief Engineer Dougal about the gear you found 0/1 (Steamfont Mountains)

(Missing and closing dialogues needed.)

Going to the middle of the factory is misleading.

All you have to do is go into the first room, stand under the big gear on the ceiling and click.

when I got here someone had just killed the big mechanical dragon Xanamech. I guess this gets rid of Nitram Anizok for a while, no sign of him in about an hour or so.

The next steps in the task are:

Find Unstable power Cells to run the EDRD

Just kill mobs and you get automatic updates. You need 2 updates. There is nothing to loot.

Find a suitable enormous gear for the EDRD to shrink

Go into the middle of the factory (past the locked door) and stand in the middle of the room where Giwin Mirakon is (LOC = -17, +1). Put the EDRD into a top inventory/bag slot and right click it. You will get the update.

Tell Chief Engineer Dougal about the gear you found

Do as it says and you are done with this task.
