Starting the quest

As written above you need to gather a shiny to start the quest. However, the shiny will not be visible unless you wear Toggery's Tinkered Excavation Cap, the reward from the quest Tinkering with Toggery. You can see the shiny with the D.I.R.T.Y. Excavation Helmet too.

The shiny is directly to the right of the zone line; you can zone in, get the shiny and zone out without engaging any mobs at all.
