Nonowato wears an expression that suggests work on the Gobroller is at last coming to a close.
Journal detail hr1 01.png Objectives

  • Nonowato wears an expression that suggests work on the Gobroller is at last coming to a close.
  • Nonowato lets you know that work on the Gobroller is progressing nicely and that your help is needed for one final push. He beckons you to the Bangpots where he will discuss the finer details of the job with you.
  • Nonowato outlines the current situation: testing has begun on the Gobroller and it has become clear that its current pistons are not up to the job. The team at the Bangpots initially thought the ceruleum engine's power output was their sole problem, but upon increasing this, they realized the vehicle would not move without stronger pistons. Nonowato knows what material is needed for the new parts, but not where they are found. You agree to ask Adalberta on his behalf and set off for the Miners' Guild in Ul'dah.
  • After overcoming her initial shock that you are on the hunt for pummelite, Adalberta informs you that the mineral can be found in the peaks of Gyr Abania. However, this may be easier said than done as pummelite has become increasingly scarce over the years due both to war and the Garlean occupation. Undeterred, you prepare for the journey ahead.
  • Nonowato gladly accepts the five chunks of pummelite you procured for him and wastes no time getting to work creating the new pistons. He assures you it will not take long and that, once they are finished, they will be putting the Gobroller through another test by the Answering Quarter. You bide your time as you await the vehicle's final trial.
  • The moment everything has been building towards is finally at hand: the Gobroller's test run. Thankfully, everyone's hard work pays off and the vehicle operates as intended. However, just as everyone starts to rejoice, Stickqix appears out of the blue wondering what has his team so elated. He is slightly deflated to learn that these key developments all unfolded in his absence, but sadness soon gives way to joy as it dawns upon him that his dream has been realized at last.
  • Stickqix imparts an interesting morsel of knowledge upon you: he used to be a member of the Illuminati. Originally, he had been tasked with creating a vehicle that would allow Illuminati members to safely go on pilgrimages. However, things turned sour when Quickthinx stole the plans and warped the design into what ultimately became known as the Gobmachine. Your work finished, you prepare to go and talk to Nonowato one last time.
  • Nonowato tells you that work on the Gobroller is far from over. They have plenty of further tests planned and hope to refine the current model, eventually creating new versions of the vehicle. Lastly, he informs you that payment for your work shall be sent to the Miners' Guild shortly.
  • You return to the guild to collect Nonowato's payment from Adalberta. She goes on to inquire as to just what kind of place Idyllshire is; the job seems to have her keen to know more about the village where goblin and man coexist in harmony. You are bid farewell and told she will be in touch again whenever there is more work for you.

Forename, a delight to see you as always. Please, follow me to the Bangpots.
Quest Accepted

Forename, allow me to begin by explaining how things currently stand.


As you are doubtless aware, the Gobroller is close to completion thanks to our much-changed approach to the project. In fact, we have recently been able to run the vehicle through some basic tests.


However, said tests did not provide the result we had hoped for. The ceruleum engine's power output was somewhat lower than expected and well...quite shamefully, the Gobroller was unable to clear the debris we prepared for testing purposes.


We did all we could to fix this, even boosting the engine's power output. But alas, the pistons were unable to cope with the extra strain.


In light of this, we have decided to create new pistons using a different, sturdier material. I imagine you have already guessed as much, but it is this material which we need you to procure for us.


Pummelite. A metal known for its high levels of durability, heat capacity, and thermal conductivity. The only issue is that I have no idea where it can be found...


What's more, it seems this mineral is rather difficult to get one's hands on. Perhaps you could try asking your friends at the Miners' Guild; they may have an idea as to where it can be mined. I would be grateful if you were able to bring back five chunks!
Pshhh... Shkohhh... Uplander will help one final time, yes?
One last job, <If(PlayerParameter(4))>Ms.<Else/>Mr.</If> Miner. Let the Gobroller serve as proof of our great efforts!
Here we are, the final stretch. Now that I think of it, the Gobroller will be the first project this team has seen to completion. We just need to make use of your mining skills one last time.
We are so very close, my heart is all aflutter. Putting our heads together has gotten us this far and I hope you see fit to grant us your succor one final time!

You're searching for what? Can't say I ever expected to hear you of all people bring that mineral up.


You'll find what you need in the peaks of Gyr Abania. Word has it, it was traded fairly often back in the day.


However, that all changed over the past century. First, it became increasingly scarce thanks to the Autumn War between Ala Mhigo and Gridania. Then, once the Garlean Empire took Ala Mhigo for their own, trade of the mineral ceased completely.


But I imagine the Miners' Guild's very own Forename Surname would be more than up to the task of locating a deposit of pummelite. Best of luck to you, friend!
Try asking your friends at the Miners' Guild if they know where pummelite is found. I promise you this will be the last time we require your help.

Nice to see you returned, Forename. Did you manage to find the pummelite?
Precisely what I needed! I know I say this every time, but I am well and truly in your debt, dear friend. I shall set about making an ingot out of this at once!
Finished at last... I could not have hoped for higher quality, even in my wildest of dreams. This will more than suffice for the pistons we require!
Pshhh... Shkohhh... Where are the rocks?
I just finished smelting them to create a rather lovely ingot. But don't just take my word for it, have a look for yourselves!
By the Twelve, this is incredible! To think it was still possible to obtain pummelite... Exquisite work, Forename!
Listen, everyone. We must not let the fruits of Forename's labors go to waste. We will create pistons capable of supporting our beloved Gobroller, do you hear me!?
I think everyone within a malm heard that! But I would be lying if I said it had not gotten me nice and fired up; it is time we got to work!

It shouldn't take us too long to get the new parts made and inserted into the vehicle.


The plan is to test the Gobroller and its new pistons by the Answering Quarter. I do hope to see you there, Forename─you have contributed so much to the project after all!
You'll find what you're after somewhere in the Peaks. Good luck, Forename!

Good to see you, Forename! Everything is in place; all that's left is to put the Gobroller and its pistons through their paces!


We're just waiting for Stackblox to get the engine going and then we can start the test.

Heh heh, this is it. Everything we've been working towards. I haven't been this nervous since the first time I used an alembic to make a bottle of distilled water.

Everything is going to be fine. Or maybe it is not. Wait, might it not be? No, I am sure there is nothing to worry about.

...Or is there?
We have done all we can. All that remains now is to see whether or not we were ever up to the task in the first place.

Pshhh... Shkohhh... Forename, no doubt you have already been thanked enough for a lifetime, but allow me to express the sentiment once more. As young Nonowato stated, your help was instrumental to our success.


You may not be aware of this, but I used to be one of the Illuminati. They tasked me with developing a vehicle that would allow them to safely conduct pilgrimages across the land.


However, things turned sour when that dastardly Quickthinx stole my plans and twisted them into something different. Something evil. The resulting monstrosity was the Gobmachine: a savage weapon.


My frustration and sadness, coupled with the disdain I had long harbored for the Grand Master, pushed me to finally leave those mad goblins behind. I imagine you are more or less aware of the major events that followed.


Pshhh... Shkohhh... At any rate, your work for us is done. I do hope to see you again in Idyllshire one day, old boy!
Ah, Forename! Just the man the chief wanted to see. I don't suppose you have already talked to him, have you?

I am going to keep saying this until you are positively sick of it, but thank you again for all you have done.


Now that the Gobroller prototype is in working order, we shall continue our tests, eventually moving onto developing improved versions in the future!


And someday, our work will give birth to a utopian Idyllshire─one where any disharmony between goblin and man is but a distant memory of the past.


Oh, and before I forget, again, I will arrange for your payment to be sent to the Miners' Guild! Please give Adalberta my regards when you next see her.
Pshhh... Shkohhh... There were a few obstacles along the way, but I am delighted that the first version of the Gobroller has been completed. You and the team did a fantastic job of proving that my faith in goblin and man was not misplaced.

Welcome back, Forename! Nonowato had some very complimentary things to say about your work. Seems you've done the guild's reputation quite a service! Something tells me you'll find the payment they sent to your liking as well.


I know I don't usually ask about much outside of work, but would you mind telling me what kind of place Idyllshire is? It's been playing on my mind ever since the job came in.

What will you say?

It's a place where man and goblin work together in harmony.


It's a town that's only going to grow in importance as time goes on.

Men and goblins, working side by side, eh? Ul'dah could learn a thing or two from that, I'd say. It'd be nice to go and take in something so lovely with my own eyes someday.


Well then, perhaps it wouldn't hurt to do a bit more business with Idyllshire in the future. Maybe I could even look into creating a branch of the guild there. No need to rush into anything regardless; I'll give myself time for a good think.


But I digress. Good work as always, Forename. You can be sure I'll be in touch again whenever the guild gets a job worthy of your skills.

Allow me to express my gratitude one final time, Forename! I shall see to it that your payment is sent to the guild posthaste. Ask Adalberta about it the next time you see her!
