Narain's flying machine on Land's End Beach

Narain Soothfancy is a gnome quest giver and 'master soothsayer' residing at Bootlegger Outpost. He is an old acquaintance of the blue dragon Azuregos, who frankly states that he's a "terrible, terrible psychic but an amazing engineer".

Cataclysm This section concerns content related to Cataclysm.

Although his home near Steamwheedle Port survived the Cataclysm, he has left that spot and set up shop at Bootlegger Outpost. However, he did not bring O'Reily along.

Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

He was critically wounded during the Legion invasion of Tanaris, but an adventurer saved his life.


Before Cataclysm

Removed from game The subject of this section was removed from World of Warcraft in patch 4.0.3a.

Before the Shattering, he was just north of Steamwheedle Port in Tanaris[65.3, 18.6]. He was the main quest giver for the  [Blue Scepter Shard] fork of  [The Scepter of the Shifting Sands] quest chain.

He was rescued by Neutral  Meridith the Mermaiden some time ago, when his flying machine crashed near Land's End Beach. She has since fallen in unrequited love with him.

After all the above are complete:


  • "<Narain holds an unopened envelope to his forehead.> What is... Mmmm... Velvet! Am I right?"
  • "Narain Soothfancy, at your service! Retired engineer and master soothsayer! I can tell your future before it even happens!"
  • "Don't tell me! Shhh! You are here about the Ashbringer?!? Yes ... Yes ... No! My bad. What can I help you with, <race>?"
  • "If you're here to try and relearn a tradeskill, use the book over there... <Narain points to "Soothsaying for Dummies.">"
Legion Invasion
It got cold, then I blacked out! What's going on around here?


After he has spoken about tradeskills, it says that he points over to a book called "Soothsaying for Dummies" which is a reference to the "For Dummies" series, as is the "Draconic for Dummies" book involved in the quest chain.

The quote above concerning the envelope--as well as his headgear--is a reference to Johnny Carson's Carnac the Magnificent routine on The Tonight Show.
