The Best Around

Admiral Taylor: We’re going to need help if we hope to figure out Garrosh’s plans for Pandaria.

I have someone specific in mind, but he will not be easy to convince.

Agent Connelly considers himself retired, but one does not simply leave the SI:7. We’ve had an undercover agent following his every move for months.

Currently, he is disguising himself as a high roller at Bizmo’s Brawlpub. Something about settling an old debt.

Meet with our undercover agent in the Brawler’s Guild.


Report to undercover agent Townsley in Bizmo’s Brawlpub in the Stormwind side of Deeprun Tram.


Admiral Taylor: Time is of the essence, (name). Proveditor Grantley may be able to help you get back to Stormwind. Of course, everything has a price.

Proveditor Grantley: Hey (class), you looking to go to Stormwind? Travel fast with one of my portals! If you ain’t got the commissions, you’ll have to get there on your own.

Note: You require five Dominance Offensive commissions to buy Portal Reagents: Stormwind from Proveditor Grantley. Kill a few Horde near the beach. Each randomly drops 1-4 commissions. The portal takes you to the Valley of Heroes. Fly toward the Deep Tram. Drop down at the tram tracks. Head to the left. There’s an entrance to the underground Bizmo’s Brawlpub (Brawler’s Guild).

(Bizmo’s Brawlpub located: 1/1)

Barkeep Townsley: Can I get you something to drink?

(Are you the agent that is following Connelly?)

Barkeep Townsley: Shhhhh! You’ll blow my cover!

(Agent Townsley located: 1/1)


Barkeep Townsley: Following Connelly has been interesting to say the least. The man is a master of disguise!

Talking him into joining you won’t be the hard part, (class). Figuring out which of these lively individuals is him will be next to impossible.


To Catch A Spy

Barkeep Townsley: Now, I could tell you who Connelly is, but that would be too easy! To catch a spy you have to think like a spy.

You have to pass the test first!

The small things can say a lot about a person. It’s all in the details.

I’m going to give you a drink to deliver. I will give you a small detail about something the recipient is wearing. From there it will be up to you.

Be careful who you pick to give drinks to. People here tend to get pretty hostile if you give them the wrong order!


Deliver the Pink Marmot, the Mogu Melon Twist, and the Rusty Dagger to the correct patron.


Note: After accepting the quest, talk again to Barkeep Townsley. She will give you a hint, and three dialogue markers appear on the mini-map. Choose which of the three NPCs is the correct patron. Takes a bit of trial and error. Each clue might be random.

(I’m ready for the first clue.)

Barkeep Townsley: They say eyes are the window to the soul. If that’s the case, I’m guessing this guest and his soul have something to hide.

Note: The human guy with the pink sunglasses is the correct patron.

(Is this your drink order?)

Keith “The Party” Westin: It’s about time! I’m parched over here!

(Pink Marmot delivered: 1/1)

Note: Talk to Barkeep Townsley again for the next clue.

(Ok, hit me with another clue.)

Barkeep Townsley: This guest wears a memento of a love lost. I guess it’s true what they say; every love story has its thorns, just like every night has its dawn.

Note: ROFL, easter egg detected! This is part of the lyrics from POISON (1988) – Every Rose Has It’s Thorn: “every love story has its thorns, just like every night has its dawn”. It’s also sung by Miley Cyrus.

(You didn’t happen to order a Rusty Dagger did you?)

Twix Gearspark: It’s about time you showed up with this!

(Rusty Dagger delivered: 1/1)

Note: Talk to Barkeep Townsley for the next clue.

(I got this! Give me the last clue.)

Barkeep Townsley: It’s best not to get on the bad side of those that prepare food. However, I’m not sure this patron has anything but a bad side…

(Does this drink belong to you?)

Tasha Windpaw: Of course it’s my drink! I invented this ya know!

(Mogu Melon Twist delivered: 1/1)


Barkeep Townsley: You have a keen eye, (class)! I think you are ready to meet Connelly.


Stirred. Not Shaken

Barkeep Townsley: Alright, I’ll tell you how to find Connelly.

Agent Connelly is currently posing as the high roller, Professor Kilt. He spends most of his time in the Boom Room. Rumor has it he’s after one of the fighters for some long forgotten betrayal.

Unfortunately, the lounge is by invitation only. Lucky for you I just happen to have an invitation.

Try not to look too obvious when you walk past the bouncers. If you get caught you didn’t get this pass from me.

In fact you and I have never met!


Find Professor Kilt in the Boom Room in Bizmo’s Brawlpub.


Go back to the area where you recently talked to the female gnome Trix Gearspark. At the end of the hallway, on the corner there is a hidden door to the stairway. Go upstairs, and you will find Professor Kilt at the end by a table.


(Professor Kilt located: 1/1)

Professor Kilt: So the SI:7 needs a reminder in what the word retirement means?

I suppose they wouldn’t be comin’ to me if the situation weren’t dire.

I’ll help, but I’ll need a few days to gather some intel.

(Operation: Shieldwall Achievement Progress: The Man With A Thousand Faces)

Professor Kilt: So ye want me to go join the Alliance front in this … Pandaria … eh?

Alright, I’ll go. But this is the last time I’m going to infiltrate the Horde! And I mean it.

I’m off to gather supplies and reconnect with old contacts. If I need backup in Pandaria, I’ll send for ya!
