This quest allows gnomes to obtain the Tinkering Mastery AAs. At this point, at least, you do NOT need The Serpent's Spine expansion to get the AAs. However, it is possible that you may need the Omens of War expansion, because the AAs go on the Omens AA tab. We need someone without Omens to try it and let us know. The quest starts with Rylin Coil in Ak'Anon @ 1469, -190, -104, at bottom of waterfall. You must be level 59 or higher before he will talk to you.
You say, 'Hail, Rylin Coil'
Rylin Coil says, 'Yikes! Don't startle a fellow like that! Have you come to peruse my fine wares or are you looking to be taught the arts of [tinkering mastery]?'
You say, 'Tinkering mastery'
Rylin Coil says, 'Very good. We gnomes should all learn this fine art. Those that do not, I am not sure if I should even call them a gnome!'
You have been assigned the task 'Tinkering Mastery'.
Create 1 Stalking Probe using tradeskills (ALL)
Deliver 1 Stalking Probe to Rylin Coil (Ak'Anon)
The second stage is concealed until you reveal the first stage. Upon completing the task:
You have shown Rylin Coil your work.
Rylin Coil says 'That looks very good! Here are the books you will need to learn Tinkering Mastery.'
The new rewards window will then display your reward: three tinkering mastery books. Make sure there is room for three items in your inventory, then click on the reward to receive the books. You will get all three books at once: Mastering Tinkering Mastery I, II, and III.
NOTE: If you only receive two books, hail Rylin again and he will give you the third book.
Once you have the books, clicking on the Mastering Tinkering Mastery I book will immediately consume three available AA points and put the Tinkering Mastery I AA on your Omens of War AAs tab. (Dev-Ngreth clarified that this is to keep it with the other Masteries AAs.) Clicking on the second book will consume six points and give you level II; the third book charges nine points for level III. The AA display for these works a little differently than AAs purchased the usual way, by displaying the number of points you spent for your most recent level of Tinkering Mastery, rather than the next one. (Per Dev-Ngreth this is because they are obtained through the quest and not bought through the AA window.) If you do not have enough points available for the level of mastery that book grants, you will get a message telling you how many points it requires.
If you hail Rylin after completing the task:
You say, 'Tinkering mastery'
Rylin Coil says 'I am sure that the skills you have learned to master tinkering will do you well.'
