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 Smelting Engineer Whistle in the Steamfont Mountains. She's found in the far southeastern part of the Steamfont Mountains (location -1415, -1475, 5 -- in the back area of the work site).

You say, 'Hail, Chief Smelting Engineer Whistle'

Chief Smelting Engineer Whistle says 'Hello there. I am Chief Smelter Whistle. Basically that means that, for this project at least, I am responsible for all metal work. That turns out to be a rather complicated task, for which I need a lot of [help].'

You say, 'Help?'

Chief Smelting Engineer Whistle says 'We have a lot of workers and engineers on the project, but there is a lot to do. There is a lot more metal in a dirigible than most folks know. And it has to be special metal in most cases. We need agents to find what we need. If you aren't here just to site see, then you might be interested in doing a few [tasks] for me.'

You say, 'What tasks?'

Chief Smelting Engineer Whistle says 'We have a lot that needs doing.'

A task window pops up with one task to choose from.

You have been assigned the task 'Ballast and Ornamentation - Mystical Ballast'.

The engineers say that one of the trickiest parts of the project will be finding the the proper ballast. They need something that will sublimate without any dramatic effects. There are a couple of things they would like to try, and they are hoping you can find the materials and run some tests for them. The engineers have heard of a kind of floating rock that can be found in a place called Lichen Creep. Get some of that to experiment with. Find a Gnomish Heat Source to use in the EBQD to try and turn the ore into gas.

You receive an Experimental Ballast Qualification Device.



Collect 1 Chunk of Floating Ore 0/1 (ALL)

This is looted from rock piles in Lichen Creep.

Collect 1 Gnomish Heat Source 0/1 (ALL)

This is bought from various spell research vendors (one such is Eric Rasumus in the Plane of Knowledge).

Combine the Floating Ore with the Heat Source in the EBQD 0/1 (ALL)

Deliver 1 Chunk of Floating Ore to any smelting engineer 0/1 (Steamfont Mountains)

Collect 1 Vial of Velium Vapors 0/1 (ALL)

See Frundle Frenklar in Thurgadin (in one of the buildings around -350, 500 -- west of the bank).

You say, 'What velium vial?'

Frundle Frenklar says 'I'm no potter mind you, but if I remember correctly it's a small brick of velium, three crystalline silks, and two glass shards. Then you'll have to finish up by firing it in a kiln with a high quality firing sheet.'

You receive a container called "Velium Purifier".

You'll then need to gather:
- 1x "Small Brick of Velium"
- 2x "Small Piece of Velium"
- 3x "Crystalline Silk"
- 2x "Glass Shard"

The silks and velium can be found from spiders in Velketor's Labyrinth. Glass Shards are sold by pottery vendors everywhere.

In a pottery wheel (Trivial 122), combine: 1x "Small Brick of Velium" + 3x "Crystalline Silk" + 2x "Glass Shard" to produce 1x "Unfired Velium Vial".

In a pottery kiln, combine 1x "Unfired Velium Vial" + 1x "High Quality Firing Sheet" to produce 1x "Velium Vial".

In the Velium Purifier, combine 1x "Velium Vial" + 2x "Small Piece of Velium" to produce the Vial of Velium Vapors.

Collect 1 Ice of Velious 0/1 (ALL)

This is an uncommon global research drop from mobs around Level 23-28. It's known to drop from familiars in Castle Mistmoore, Netherbians in Netherbian Lair, fire goblins in Solusek's Eye, among many other NPCs.

Combine the Velium Vapors with the Ice of Velious in the EBQD 0/1 (ALL)

Deliver 1 Experimental Ballast Qualification Device to any smelting engineer 0/1 (Steamfont Mountains)

(Missing and closing dialogues needed.)
