Plant a Goblin Pocket-Nuke at Sofera's Naze, Corrahn's Dagger, the Headland and Gavin's Naze.

  •  [Goblin Pocket-Nuke] (provided)


We must break the fingers of the Stormpike if we are to stop their incursion.

<Cromush hands you a small package.>

Within this package are four high-yield goblin explosives. You are to infiltrate each of the four fingers - Sofera's Naze, Corrahn's Dagger, the Headland and Gavin's Naze - and plant a goblin pocket-nuke at each.

Once you have done that - as well as all that Melisara asks of you - return to me.


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
Inv misc cape 26.png [Corrahn's Cloak] Inv shoulder 14.png [Gavin's Pauldrons]
Inv belt 37a.png [Sofera's Belt] Inv belt 37a.png [Headland Belt]


Have you planted the pocket-nukes?


Once Melisara is through with you we will detonate the explosives!
