Schnottz's new gossip text:

  • Say, would you mind just blocking the sun with your shadow for a little while?
That'd be great...
  • Schnottz is making a fortune because of us... where's ours?!
  • It's far too hot to work out here - especially in these uniforms.
  • I was promised substantial wealth to come out here.

What a joke!

Head northwest. The units are specifically called Slacking Laborers. Don't bother with the Schnottz's Landing Laborers.

The laborers can react hostilely:

  • I'm not working for that maniac anymore!
  • I have a message for you to deliver to that tyrant!
  • I can't believe I fell for Schnottz's lies! I'm out of here!
  • I haven't been paid since I got here! I'm through with this place!
  • I'm done working in this heat!

Or not:

  • Yeah, yeah. When aren't we behind schedule?
  • I should never have left Tanaris.
  • I didn't sign up for this...
  • I was happier as a Wastewander.

Schnottz offers new gossip text again when completing the quest:

  • After zhat ritual debacle, you owe me, <race>.
And I plan on collectink!
  • How do you zhink Gobbles vould feel about you if he vere here?
