Blakelow is a level 75 goblin engineer from Nogg's Workshop in Orgrimmar.

He arrives to coach the goblin engineers in Warsong Hold to Always Be Crafting, an adaptation of a scene from early in the movie version of the David Mamet play Glengarry Glen Ross wherein the Alec Baldwin character Blake exhorts the real estate agents he has come to coach to Always Be Closing.


Blakelow: Are they all here?
Williamson says: All but one.
That's good enough for me.
Can I have your attention for a moment!
Because you're talkin' about what? Talkin' about the archlight spanner, whining about the smelting requirements of hardened adamantite, cryin' about some gnome that ripped you off...
Let's talk about somethin' important.
Put that Morning Glory dew DOWN! Morning Glory dew is for crafters only.
Do you think I'm messin' with you? I am not messin' with you. I'm here from Orgrimmar. I'm here from Nogg's Machine Shop and I'm here on a mission of mercy.
Your name's Leveny?
Chief Engineer Leveny says: Yea.
And you call yourself a crafter, you son-of-a-gnome?
Goblin Siege Engineer says: I don't have to listen to your guff, mister!
You certainly don't pal, 'cause the good news is YOU'RE FIRED! The bad news is you've got - you've all got - just one week to regain your jobs, starting with tonight's build.
Oh... Have I got your attention now? Good, 'cause we're adding a little something to this month's crafting contest.
As you all know, frist prize is a Turbo-Charged Flying Machine. Anyone want to see second prize?
Second prize is some fused wiring.
Third prize is YOU'RE FIRED! You get the picture?
You're laughin' now? You got tools! Thrall paid good money for those tools. Get out your blueprints and read them! If you can't build siege engines with the tools you're given, you can't build nothin', you are nothin', hit the bricks pal and take the first zeppelin out of here 'cause you are going out!
Chief Engineer Leveny says: The tools are weak!
The tools are weak? You're weak! I've been in this business fifty years.
Goblin Siege Engineer says: Say, what's your name?
Gnome lover, that's my name! You know why, buddy? 'Cause you rode into this shop on a broken down unicycle and I flew in here on a 5,000 gold piece, top of the line, armored wyern. THAT*S my name!
A-B-C. A-always, B-be, C-crafting. Always be crafting. Always be crafting!
Goblin Siege Engineer says: You're such a hero, you've got so much gold - why you coming down here and wasting your time on a bunch of losers?
These are the new tools. These are the Gadgetzan Power tools. And to you, they're gold. And you don't get 'em. Because to give them to you is just like throwin' them into a scrap heap. They're for crafters. Crafters only!
It takes brass ball-bearings to craft siege engines for the Horde. Now get with the progem or hit the bricks.
