This time we're ready. <The gnomes have been engineering a beauty for us back at Stormwind/The goblins have been proving their worth by making a vicious machine for us back at Bilgewater Harbor>, and it's packing firepower that'll make the fiend wet itself.

When the Pincer X2/Verne pulls up to dock beside the ship, make your way on board and help out however you can. We'll be right behind you.
