Bah! You go take the tram then... it's over in Tinker Town with the rest of the gnomish contraptions.

Big beast of a fellow, covered in white leathers and furs. You can't miss him.
Gossip Hunter
Do ye have the potential to be a skilled hunter? Well <laddie/lassie>, only time will tell. Just don't ye go shooting at apples atop peoples' heads till ye've spoken with Regnus o'er in the Hall of Arms.
I overheard Regnus Thundergranite in the Hall of Arms bragging about a new trophy for his den the other day. If yer looking for training from a skilled hunter, Regnus is the one to see.

Ye'll want to travel north from the gates of Ironforge to the Hall of Mysteries. That's where ye'll find her.
Ah, nothing better than a priest to cure what ails ye. Of course a nice tall pint cures a lot of what ails ye too, but I don't think Braenna Flintcrag teaches brewing. I guess ye'll have to settle for some priest training over in the Hall of Mysteries instead.
Gossip Rogue
All the roguish types hang out in The Forlorn Cavern, north of the gates of Ironforge. I'd wager ye'll find Fenthwick there, no doubt counting the coin of another cut purse. I'll catch him one of these days.

A warlock, eh... Well, if you've got a mind to be doing that sort of thing around here then ye best keep yer demons on a leash <boyo/girlie>. I don't like demons, but I love putting mah axe to them. Ye get me?
Now you just leave me be and go get lost in The Forlorn Cavern. That's where you'll find that warlock, Thistleheart.
Where better to look for a dark and brooding lot, than the dark section of Ironforge, aptly named The Forlorn Cavern. Thistleheart is sure to be found there, likely summoning some manner of vile creature to do his bidding.

Kelstrum is a loudmouth and a braggart... and if that weren't enough he's also one of the most skilled warriors ye'll ever meet!
I tell ye, if ye're looking to be trained the ways of a warrior, that's who ye should be talking to. I'm sure he can be found in the Hall of Arms east of the Gates of Ironforge.

Och! That Daryl Riknussun is a brilliant cook! He makes a chilli so hot ye could temper steel with it! I don't think he'll teach ye the recipe, but he'll certainly help ye to become a good cook. Ye'll find him at the Bronze Kettle o'er on the northeastern side of The Great Forge.
Gossip Enchanting
Ah, I believe Gimble Thistlefuzz is who ye'll be needing if yer looking to learn the Enchanter's profession. Ye'll find Gimble in his shop, Thistlefuzz Arcanery, right by the Gryphon Master at The Great Forge.

I once heard ol' Grimnur say he fished up a sword. Or was it a swordfish? Damn that Grimnur, he's told so many fish tales I can't remember which is which. Well, why don't you go see him over in The Forlorn Cavern and have him tell you what it was.
Gossip Herbalism
Flowers and seeds and such? That would be Reyna Stonebranch's area of expertise. Ye can find her tending to her plants over at the Ironforge Physician on the southern side of The Great Forge.
