Objectives Edit

Bring a Prismatic Punch Card to Master Mechanic Castpipe in Ironforge.

Description Edit

When we fled Gnomeregan, we left so much data behind! Vitally important data!

I need the data on a prismatic punch card, from a Matrix Punchograph 3005-D high security terminal, deep in Gnomeregan. You must access the terminal, but to do that you first need clearance... and to get that you must access lower security terminals-- models -A, -B and -C. And to do THAT you need security punch cards, starting with white... and we left all the punch cards in the city.

It's a catastrophe! Can you help?

Rewards Edit

You will receive: 25Silver

Progress Edit

Do you have the prismatic punch card??

Completion Edit

You did it! You found the prismatic punch card and recovered the lost data! Vitally, critically, immeasurably important data that we could not live another moment without!

Your service to the gnomes will be long remembered, <name>.

Notes Edit

Outside the Instance Edit

The first part of this quest takes place in Gnomeregan, but outside the instance. You must first get [White Punch Card], which is a random drop from the mobs near the instance. Then you must use the card in a Matrix Punchograph 3005-A, which are located in the Train Depot area (on the raised platform in the center, and by the Workshop (back door) entrance). This will give you a [Yellow Punch Card].

Inside the Instance Edit

Binary punch card translations Edit

The blocks of 1s and 0s in the description page when you interact with different machines actually have meaning. They are binary representations of ASCII text. A few examples listed here (some from Thottbot):

    • Recipe: Mechanical ChickSoup
    • Gnomercy!
    • Tell your friends to play WoW .
    • Play the Warcraft roleplaying game.
    • Kiss me, I'm gnomish!

    • Gnomeregan forever!
    • How am I driving?
    • <insert funny message here>

    • If you can read this, you're standing too close.
    • The gnome king wears night elf underwear.
    • Help! I'm trapped in a binary punch card factory!
    • Message to Castpipe: your laundry's ready for pickup.
