What does this information mean?

This is a limited repeatable quest which can be repeated 50 times
You need to be able to speak gnomish for Mad Mattie to talk to you. You need to do this quest at least 5 (five) times to get the next quest.


Mattie, the gnome responsible for setting up the fireworks displays for Tinkerfest, has a small problem with malfunctioning clockworks loaded with fireworks which are self-replicating themselves and threatening to overrun Steamfont. I have offered to help destroy some of them.

  1. Disable 10 Erratic Tinkerfest Clockworks before they cause harm!
  2. Return and let Mattie know you safely detonated some clockworks.


Note: after the 25th completion your character declares that they have done their share but the quest can be repeated a further 25 times (not all in one year).

Thoughtful Tips for Top-Notch Tinkerfest Times!

Sample "Great Balls of Fire" Macro
  • Make a macro for targeting and detonating the erratic tinkerfest clockworks. You merely have to be near one, press the button, and BOOM!
    1. Press O to open the Macros window.
    2. Find a blank macro slot and click on <click to edit>
    3. Add a Command Step: /target_nearest_npc
    4. Add a Use Item step, then drag the Remote Detonator to it.
    5. Give your macro a title.
    6. Click OK
    7. Drag the new macro to a hotbar for easy access.
