The subject of this article or section was part of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj, a world event that heralded the opening of Ahn'Qiraj. This quest was removed as of patch 4.0.3a.

This quest starts the  [500 Pound Chicken] portion of the  [Blue Scepter Shard] fork of  [The Scepter of the Shifting Sands] quest line to open the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj. Players must have completed N [60] Translating the Ledger before Narain Soothfancy will offer this quest.


Narain Soothfancy in Tanaris wants you to speak with Dirge Quikcleave in Gadgetzan.


If there is one thing that you should know about me, it is this: NEVER ask me about my business! I work with things you simply cannot understand. Like for example: Do you know what a psychotronic muzzledorf is? Of course you don't! And that's why we leave the planning to me and the fetching to you.

As I said earlier, if this is going to work, we're going to need a 500 pound chicken.

Head to Gadgetzan and speak with Dirge Quickcleave - he'll get you started on finding a suitable specimen.


You will receive:


<Dirge scratches his head.>

A 500 pound chicken? There's no such thing! Not anymore, at least. I knew of such a chicken... The Black Chicken of Death...

<Dirge's voice trails off.>

But yes, nobody ever saw that chicken and lived to tell the tale. I've got an idea that could benefit the both of us, kid.


  • Dirge Quickcleave is located in the Gadgetzan inn.
  • The title "Never Ask Me About My Business" is a line spoken by Micheal Corleone in the Godfather.
  • El Pollo Grande (the "Black Chicken of Death", as referred to by Dirge Quikcleave) can be seen upon turning in the quest N Warlock [55] Kroshius' Infernal Core to Niby the Almighty.
