Gazmolf Futzwangler is a goblin quest giver and the leader of the Steamwheedle Preservation Society[3] in Nagrand. He is located at both Stonecrag Gorge, where he leads a team of excavators to obtain the artifacts dug up by the Highmaul ogres, and at the Ruins of Na'gwa, where he and Twixnee Boltgear present holograms of various rare elite enemies across Nagrand and where players can speak to him to turn in reputation items dropped by said enemies.

Stonecrag Gorge

Tell me, what do you see when you stare into an ancient artifact?
History? Culture? Mystery?
That's because you have an untrained eye! Do you know what I see?
Money! Lots of it!
Stick around with me long enough and if you're smart you'll learn a thing or two about real archaeology!
Gossip What can you tell me about the Steamwheedle Preservation Society?
The Steamwheedle Preservation Society was created to help ensure the safety of valuable artifacts and antiquities across Azeroth and Draenor.
We travel far and wide to obtain the most precious relics and artifacts ever seen!
Our mission is to put all of these priceless artifacts where they belong... in the hands of the higher bidder!

Ruins of Na'gwa


Hack imposters like Harrison Jones may frown on my methods, but fossilization takes thousands of years!
The best way to preserve a rare and fascinating creature is to do it yourself!
Why wait thousands of years for nature to do something that you can do a better job of yourself?


Gazmolf and Twixnee Boltgear continuously hold a presentation about holograms of various Nagrand rare elites. After discussing each hologram, they will wait for about 40 seconds before moving on to the next one. They go through the holo-projections in alphabetic order, starting over from the beginning once they've gone through them all.

Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Alright, Twix... let's take a look at the fabled predator Aogexon!
Twixnee Boltgear says: You got it boss! Initiating holo-projection D-092!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: It's been said that Aogexon's fangs can cut through solid steel! Magnificent!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: We simply must have Aogexon's fangs, Twixnee. They will make fine fossils one day!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Let's move on to the next specimen!
Twixnee Boltgear says: Next up in the database is Bergruu. Initiating holo-projection D-093...
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Ahh yes! Bergruu, the mighty Ironhide of the northern plains! Bergruu's horn is said to be the largest clefthoof horn ever seen...
Twixnee Boltgear says: Has anyone actually gotten close enough to measure the thing?
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Not yet! However, there are several collectors that would pay a fortune to acquire it.
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Let's move on to Dekorhan, the mysterious and ancient Elekk[sic] of Nagrand!
Twixnee Boltgear says: Initiating holo-projection D-095...
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Elekk are one of the oldest living species on Draenor, and Dekorhan sightings have been recorded by the orcs for generations...
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Pop quiz, Twix! How do you tell the age of an Elekk[sic]?
Twixnee Boltgear says: Umm... by the size of its tusks?
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Precisely! Did you learn that from me?
Twixnee Boltgear says: That size matters? Uhh... yeah, sure! You bet!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Now then, let's review the deadly and elusive talbuk known as Direhoof...
Twixnee Boltgear says: Holo-projection D-096 initiated, boss!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Direhoof is the most dangerous talbuk this side of Nagrand, and a specimen of rare quality...
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: It's our duty as archaeologists to preserve this mighty beast while still in the prime of its life!
Twixnee Boltgear says: Just hearing you speak makes me proud to be an archaeologist, sir!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: As it should, Twixnee... as it should.
Gagrog the Brutal
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Now, on to the next specimen!
Twixnee Boltgear says: Initiating holo-projection D-097... Gagrog the Brutal!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Such a magnificently brutal creature! Few Gronn[sic] are as feared as Gagrog the Brutal!
Twixnee Boltgear says: Hide the women and children! Hide everybody!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Somewhere out there, in a private collection, is an empty place just waiting for Gagrog's skull to fill the void.
Twixnee Boltgear says: Boss, you're bringing tears to my eyes!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Now, let's take a look at Mu'gra! Holo-projection D-098, Twix...
Twixnee Boltgear says: D-098 coming right up!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Mu'gra... my old nemesis!
Twixnee Boltgear says: Nemesis? Do you and this hippo have some kind of history?
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Let's just say that extracting a hippo tooth for preservation is far more dangerous while the hippo is alive...
Twixnee Boltgear says: The things we archaeologists have to deal with these days! Sheesh!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Let us continue on to the next specimen!
Twixnee Boltgear says: You got it, Mr. G! Initiating holo-projection D-099...
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Ahh, yes! Here we have Thek'talon, a windroc of superb size and ferocity.
Twixnee Boltgear says: Does it have large talons?
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Indeed, Twix... and razor sharp! It's a shame we don't have time to allow Thek'talon to die naturally and slowly fossilize through the ages...
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: ...instead, it is our duty to lend nature a helping hand and speed up the process!
Twixnee Boltgear says: Natural fossilization? Ain't nobody got time for that!
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Twixnee, please initiate the holo-projection for Xelganak!
Twixnee Boltgear says: Sure thing, boss! Initiating holo-projection D-100...
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: Xelganak is a most peculiar creature indeed! The bioluminescent fluid in Xelganak's sac is highly corrosive and can be propelled at high velocity.
Twixnee Boltgear says: So Xelganak could melt someone's face off?
Gazmolf Futzwangler says: What do you think happened to Bozzil? He wasn't born looking like that!


  • Vileclaw is curiously missing from Gazmolf and Twixnee's presentation, and the holo-projections also seem to skip a number between D-093 (Bergruu) and D-095 (Dekorhan). Furthermore, the holo-projection for Xelganak uses the wrong model, depicting it as a firefly instead of a ravager wasp.
  • In-game strings refer to Gazmolf and his group of Goblin Excavator‎s as the "Away Team".[4]
