This guide lists all the quests you can do in the Gnomeregan dungeon: Alliance quests, Horde quests, class quests, profession quests, quests you need to get before entering the dungeons, and quests you get inside the dungeons.

There is only 1 Horde-only quest in this dungeon, Rig Wars. Nogg in Orgrimmar wants you to retrieve the Rig Blueprints and Thermaplugg's Safe Combination from Gnomeregan. After killing Mekgineer Thermaplugg, take his safe combination and then open the safe nearby for the blueprints.

Players can also complete the quest Gnomer-gooooone!, which unlocks the teleport from Booty Bay to Gnomeregan for easier access. To do so, you will need to complete a chain from Sovik in Orgrimmar. Note that, you cannot pick this quest up without already having Rig Wars in your quest log.

1.3.

Neutral

There are 2 neutral quests in this dungeon, both of which are started inside the instance.

  • A Fine Mess (requires Level 20) — escort Kernobee to the exit. This quest is picked up inside the instance, with Kernobee located to the east of the punch card machine in the dormitory. You will hand this in to Scooty in Booty Bay after completing your run.
  • Grime-Encrusted Ring (requires Level 28) — this quest is started by the Grime-Encrusted Ring Icon Grime-Encrusted Ring item. Take it to be cleaned in the cleaning rooms and, although all the machines do not work, one of them will eventually work if you try multiple ones. The item is dropped by Dark Iron Agent mobs in the dungeon.
1.3.1.

Grime-Encrusted Ring

Grime-Encrusted Ring will, once completed, offer players a new quest chain to follow. The follow-on quest, Return of the Ring, for Alliance, or Return of the Ring for the Horde, tasks you with finding the owner of the ring.

Alliance players will need to head to Ironforge and find Talvash del Kissel in the Mystic Ward, while Horde players will need to find Nogg in the Valley of Honor in Orgrimmar.

Both factions will then receive a follow-up quest that requires the same materials to upgrade their ring.

  • Gnome Improvement — giving Talvash your ring, a Silver Bar Icon Silver Bar, and a Moss Agate Icon Moss Agate, as well as 30 silver, will reward you with Talvash's Gold Ring Icon Talvash's Gold Ring.
