This quest starts the Operation: Gnomeregan quest chain.


Recruit Gnome Citizens from Tinker Town using the Motivate-a-Tron and lead them to Captain Tread Sparknozzle at Steelgrill's Depot.


Our engineers have been working on getting our battle machines ready for our assault on Gnomeregan, but we're out of pilots!

We've developed a device called the Motivate-a-Tron, which prevents distraction from other sources and gives the gnome the courage to enlist.

After motivating a few Gnome Citizens, lead them out to Captain Tread Sparknozzle out at Steelgrill's Depot, just south of Ironforge.

Oh, and be careful. The device is still a little experimental.




Did you find some fresh recruits?


This is the best group of potential pilots you could find?

Okay, well, I'll see what I can do. I've been known to turn even the biggest pile of gnarled gears into a smooth-runnin' fightin' machine and I expect no less with this lot.

Well, I guess it's time to work!


There are Gnome Citizens all over Tinker Town. Motivate 5, mount up, and ride out to Steelgrill's Depot. (When you mount up, they also mount up, so they don't fall behind.) The citizens are only motivated for 15 minutes, so don't take too long.

When first motivated:

  • Sign me up!
  • I'd love to help!
  • Can I bring my wrench?
  • Anything for King Mekkatorque!
  • Is this going to hurt?

When the motivated citizens reach Captain Sparknozzle:

  • Wow! We're taking back Gnomeregan? I'm in!
  • This is going to be fascinating!
  • Do you think they will let me keep my uniform when I'm done?
  • How soon until the victory party starts? I'm ready to dance!
  • My wrench of vengeance awaits!
  • I want to drive a Spider Tank!

The "experimental" side effects include turning the citizen into a rabbit, and increasing their size to that of a dwarf.

The name of this quest is based on the movie, "A Few Good Men"
