Blastmaster Emi Shortfuse, an elite female gnome, is found within Gnomeregan, near two of the spots where the troggs started invading Gnomeregan. She wishes to find out where exactly the troggs are coming from and tries to stop them. When players talk to her, she will start an escort-like event, in which you'll have to protect her against waves of incoming troggs. At the end, Grubbis and his pet Chomper will appear. After defending her for the duration of event, you will be able to loot from the crates behind her.
Thank the light you are here! I'd accept help from a two-headed ogre at this point.
The city has been overrun by troggs! The attempts to wipe them out resulted in mass contamination. But there is still hope.
Our scientists who evacuated to Ironforge are working on a cure for the fallout sickness. Meanwhile, if you can help me stop the trogg invasion, perhaps the city can be retaken.
- I am ready to begin.
- With your help, I can evaluate these tunnels.
- Let's see if we can find out where these Troggs are coming from.... and put a stop to the invasion!
- Such devastation... what a horrible mess...
- It's quiet here....
- ...too quiet.
- Look! Over there at the tunnel wall!
- Trogg incursion! Defend me while I blast the hole closed!
- I don't think one charge is going to cut it. Keep fending them off!
- The charges are set. Get back before they blow!
- Incoming blast in 10 seconds!
- Incoming blast in 5 seconds. Clear the tunnel! Stay back!
- FIRE IN THE HOLE!
- Well done! Without your help I would have never been able to thwart that wave of troggs.
- Did you hear something?
- I heard something over there.
- More troggs! Ward them off as I prepare the explosives!
- The final charge is set. Stand back!
- 10 seconds to blast! Stand back!!!
- 5 seconds until detonation!!!!!
- Nice work! I'll set off the charges to prevent any more troggs from making it to the surface.
- Superb! Because of your help, my people stand a chance of re-taking our beloved city. Three cheers to you!
- Attacked by enemies
- Get this, Caverndeep Ambusher off of me!
- I need help!
- Caverndeep Ambusher attacking! Help!
She is located at the end of the first hall to the left after entering the instance, on the southwest side of the upper Hall of Gears. During the event, she opens a tunnel from which troggs issue in waves. She will issue a warning and collapse that tunnel; if you are in that tunnel, you may be killed out of the reach of your healers.
