This quest starts the portion of the fork of quest chain, to open the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj. Players must have completed before will offer this quest.
Find Narain Soothfancy's book, buried on an island in the South Seas.
I knew that book would come in handy some day! Thankfully, I had the wit and foresight to stow it somewhere safe.
Don't worry, it's in a place that nobody could ever hope to find it! I needed a gyrocopter just to get there the first time. Unfortunately I crashed it on the beach on my way back. It was through that accident that I gained these super-gnomish psychic powers!
Look for my crashed gyrocopter somewhere on Land's End Beach and swim south from there! You'll know the spot when you see it!
The book is gone! On top of the dirt mound is a note.
In order to complete this quest, a short side quest or certain buffs are necessary. As the island that the Freshly Dug Dirt is on is in the Fatigue waters southeast of Land's End Beach, so there must be some way to increase swim speed so players aren't forced to suffer several unnecessary deaths.
Fortunately, is in the waters just off the beach. Talk to her and she offers a one-off quest, that has you deliver her love letter to Narain. After Narain predictably stammers out a "no", talk to her again and she will buff you with a swim speed increase buff. Use this buff to swim to the island before the Fatigue timer runs out.
You can also reach the island by means of other buffs. You can use a shaman's Water Walking spell, or Elixir of Water Walking, then travel to the island riding a mount. A priest's Levitate spell to run across the surface of the water will not work without additional boosts in speed. You can also reach the island if you are a druid who owns the Glyph of Aquatic Form.
Upon completion of this quest you will gain:
