Hobart Grapplehammer is a goblin quest giver first seen in the KTC Headquarters on Kezan experimenting with new products. When the place is destroyed by the volcano he escapes with the rest of the survivors to the Lost Isles and then is later found at the Southern Rocketway Terminus in Azshara.[50.5, 74.7]

He will not offer his quests until the player has completed H [13] Befriending Giants and is eligible for H [14] Azsharite Experiment Number One. He will then solicit the player's help.

Hobart is also one of the dozens of past NPC's encountered by adventurers to assist in killing the elementals at Sethria's Roost.

Inventions

Hobart Grapplehammer is the genius behind many products brought to the Kajaro Trading Company. Such as Kaja'Cola, the Poultryizer, Town-In-A-Box, Lab-In-A-Box, the Ingenious Cap of Mook Foolery, KTC Train-a-Tron Deluxe, the Amazing G-Ray, Never-Deflating Pool Ponies, The Big Ones, Warrior-Matic NX-01, and gilgoblins. However, he's been advised to not claim the gilgoblins by his counsel, due to a negligence case brought up over them.

Before the eruption of Mount Kajaro, Hobart was working on two new projects, the Micro Mechachicken and Subject Nine.

While on the Lost Isles he designed and built the greatest fighting submersible of all time, the Mechashark X-Steam.

Quotes

Kezan, while experimenting on the Micro Mechachicken
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: Prepare the Micro Mechachicken!
Assistant Greely says: You don't have to yell, Hobart, I'm standing right here. Sheesh!
Assistant Greely says: There. One Micro Mechachicken. I'll never understand how you come up with these names.
Hobart Grapplehammer says: There's a great deal that you do not understand, my dear Greely. That is why you are the assistant and I... I am Hobart Grapplehammer!
Greely sighs and rolls her eyes.
Assistant Greely says: Yes, Doctor Grapplehammer.
Hobart Grapplehammer says: Excellent. Now back away from the Ultra Concave Fissionable Testing Platform. Slowly, if you please.
The assistant shakes her head.
Hobart Grapplehammer says: Thank you. Now behold as I stabilize the highly unstable miniaturization process.
Hobart Grapplehammer says: I am going to end the horrible problem of food storage cutting into the profits of the Bilgewater Cartel!
Hobart Grapplehammer says: I'll soon be revered as the greatest goblin tinker of all times! Besides, that negligence case involving the creation of the gilgoblins will never stick.
Hobart Grapplehammer says: Flip the switch!
Greely coughs.
Assistant Greely says: Um, Hobart, you're at the controls.
Hobart Grapplehammer says: Quite right, Greely. You passed today's pop quiz.
Hobart Grapplehammer says: I am now flipping the switch!
Hobart Grapplehammer says: Greely, can you feel it? My moment of success is at hand!
Hobart Grapplehammer says: Grocery store owners everywhere will owe me a percentage of their profits!
Hobart Grapplehammer says: I'm flipping the second switch!
The micro mechachicken begins to grow and Greely starts sneaking away from the machine.
Hobart Grapplehammer says: Wait... something's wrong!
Assistant Greely says: Ya think? Hobart, the Micro Mechachicken is destabilizing. It's expanding!
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: I know... I know! Where's the override? The override?!
Assistant Greely yells: It's the one on the far right! Hurry, Hobart! It's going to eggsplode!
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: Here goes nothing, I always loved you, Greely!
Assistant Greely yells: WHAT?!!!
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: Flipping the override switch now!
The micro mechachicken quickly shrinks back to normal.
Hobart Grapplehammer says: Are we still alive?
Assistant Greely says: We're still alive, Doctor Grapplehammer, despite your best efforts.
Hobart Grapplehammer says: Well of course we are, my dear Greely. And look there. The Micro Mechachicken's stabilization appears to be a complete success!
The micro mechachicken explodes.
Assistant Greely says: Is that egg on your face?
Hobart's jaw hits the ground.
Assistant Greely says: Now what's this about you 'always loved me', Grapplehammer?
Hobart Grapplehammer says: I haven't the foggiest notion what you're talking about, Miss Greely.
Assistant Greely says: We can both agree on that, doctor.
Kezan, while the volcano is erupting
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: The sky is falling!
Assistant Greely says: Technically speaking, that's not true, doctor. The rocks that fly out of a volcano like Mount Kajaro are called ejecta. It's not the sky. It's molten rock, or tephra. It cools as it decends, becoming lava bombs. Very appropriate, wouldn't you say?
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: Deathwing?! The Cataclysm?! We're doomed!! We have to get off of Kezan before Mount Kajaro blows for good!!!
Assistant Greely says: You're going to blow if you don't calm down! Don't you think it was a little bit convenient? The dragon flying over right as the winning field goal for the footbomb finals was kicked into Mount Kajaro?
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: A party? Can you believe it? A party and the whole island is about to explode?! What are they thinking!!!!
Assistant Greely says: Yeah, a real party that I was actually invited to. Why does something always happen and I never get to go? I could use a drink.
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: We have to get off the island! Quick, Greely, grab the schematics! And my toothbrush!
Assistant Greely says: I'm on it, doctor. Schematics, check. Toothbrush, check.
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: Whatever you do, don't let me forget my Ingenious Cap of Mook Foolery!
Assistant Greely says: Hmm, I know I saw it around here somewhere, but are you sure? That thing turns the user into a brute instead of projecting an image of one about fifty percent of the time. And then they explode!
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: There's just not enough time to pack all of this stuff up! Grab only the important stuff! Where'd I put my Blastproof Underwater G-Ray Goggles?!
Assistant Greely says: Um, Hobart, you've wearing them.
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: Get everything packed! We have to find a way off of Kezan! We'll jump into the closest Town-In-A-Box! They'll load it on the Trade Prince's yacht.
Assistant Greely says: I will, I will. But, Hobart, you have to calm down. Your blood pressure! You're turning deep green!
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: How are we going to get Subject Nine through customs? I know! Pack her into the Lab-In-A-Box!
Assistant Greely says: Right away. I'll flag the Lab-In-A-Box for deployment in Azhara. I'll pack her little cushion in with her, too. She's so cute.
After completing H [8] The Biggest Egg Ever
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: Greely, load The Biggest Egg Ever into the Poultryizer. Mechnuggets for everyone!
Assistant Greely yells: Genius idea, sir. Your brain power never ceases to amaze me!
Assistant Greely yells: This thing is huge! Reverse the polarity on the Poultryizer. We'll have to shove it in throught the outtake.
Assistant Greely yells: There it goes. It should only be a moment now....
The Poultryizer explodes.
Hobart Grapplehammer yells: Shut it down, shut it down! The eggs are bad!!!
