The Gunpowder Plot
90 (Requires 90)
Find a Blackrock Powder Keg and return it to Hansel Heavyhands.
Ey, <pal/lady>! We got an issue, here.
Me ol' pal Thaelin's rigged together this here plunger out of spare Blackrock parts - engineerin' whiz that he is - but we're gonna need some gunpowder if we really want ta' do any damage.
Don't go doin' anything inappropriate with that gunpowder, now.
Woo hoo hoo haaaaa!

Just southeast of Hansel and Thaelin's position is a small hut. Enter it to find the in the back corner. Interact with it to pick it up and start leaving a trail of highly explosive gunpowder all over the area. Work on the other quests before returning to the makeshift plunger. Interact with it to set off the gunpowder that traces the path the player took before making it back to the first building, which explodes, sending an Iron Horde Grunt flying at the speed of sound:
- Hansel Heavyhands says: There she goes...
- Hansel Heavyhands says: ...wait for it...
- Hansel Heavyhands says: KER-PLOW!
- Iron Horde Grunt yells: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
- Hansel Heavyhands says: Ohhh, weren't that the prettiest thing?
The name of this quest is a reference to the historical Gunpowder Plot of 1605, most famous for Guy Fawkes and his failed attempt to blow up the English House of Lords.
