Alright, I had no real problems understanding the quest from the start up until the point where you get into the mining guild. Now that I am there, F'lhaminn had me do the emotes "Beckon" "Upset" "Laugh" and "Furious". I have no idea which miner to use what emote on, and the thing is I followed the instructions on Zams guide and it didn't help. =/ Any help to complete this would be wonderful, but for now off to get some Chinese!

~Thanks in advance (and hopefully for useful information. xD)

Do beckon, deny, furious on closest miner, then laugh on farthest.

Alright, just now getting online to try this out. I'll edit the post whether it works or not.

~Nadda, did nothing, should I zone out of the instance and start it back up? I don't think it would make a huge difference, but who knows.

Are you targeting the miners as you do the emotes?

Of course, and it hasn't worked I've entered the instance and tried different orders as well.

SE caters to the Chinese! This proves it!

Mikhalia: and FWIW, my posts are 95% helpful, informative, or funny.
Mikhalia: only 5% or less of my posts are utter crap.
Tyapex: 393 posts of utter crap...
Mikhalia: Sounds about right.

Lolwut, but yeah I'm stumped with this, and I have no idea what to do. I'm hoping for my sake, that it isn't bugged and that I can get past it without creating a new character. D=

All the commands are Furious, Deny, Beckon, Laugh, soothe, upset. Have you done all of these to each miner?

I can, but according to the wiki there is an order, or is that unproven at the moment?

~Just did it, nothing happened when done to both miners on stage. =/

D: Anyone? Even if I have forgotten the four emotes she had me do, isn't there a way to find out again, or still complete this quest?

There's six emotes. Are you sure you're doing all six?

Yes I'm sure, thus why I'm asking for help. Reading the guide from ZAM made it seem like there was an order to it, and I tried all six on both the Manic Miner and the Maddened Miner on stage. Are there any other suggestions, because I've been stuck there since yesterday, I went out mining to pass time hoping one of these idea would work but nothing has come through.

It could be a bug though, who knows.

Have you tried changing the order around? I don't think the order matters though. It might very well be a bug.

Yeah, tried it a few times. I'm thinking I'll just make a new character yet again, but in a different starting area and hopefully avoid this. =/

In your Journal it should say what you need to use, and I think the order. Also, did you use these on -her- first when she was showing you how to do them? Just asking.

I'm stuck on this quest as well. I done the other 2 cities emote quest during beta, and I understand the frustration. But in the retail game, I can't get past this at all. The journal, should read:
F'lhaminn was kind enough to teach you the expressive motions "angry," "beckon," "laugh," "no," "upset," and "soothe." Use them wisely, and put and (sic) end to Corguevais's persection at the hands of the enraged miners.I went AFK in the middle of the quest where F'lhaminn was to teach me the emotes. When I returned, she just says "What? You've forgoten already? Gods..." and waves me away. My journal still reads You witnessed an altercation of sorts break own at Amajina & Sons Mineral Concern. It seems the thaumatiurge Corguevais has stolen away into the shafts illegally with the intention of mining up whatever valuable ores and gems he could. Speak to the Songstress of Ul'dah, F'lhaminn, to discovery some method of quelling the donnybrook so I'm now stuck with a NPC who won't teach me what I need to advance, and NPC's that won't respond the the correct (or any/all) emote patterns that would advance this quest.

Granted, only week 1. I can remake a character, and not really suffer much loss in the grand scheme of playing this game for a long time to come. But I really would like to address this issue, if it is in fact a glitch in my case.

I was having trouble with this quest as well. I think the key is to do all the emotes to F'lhaminn first. The quest will then update. I only had to do two of the emotes on the thugs. I used furious on the one to the left and beckon to the one on the right.

The movie then played and the quest updated.

Hope this helps.

to my knowledge every starting area has this 'emote quest'

basically if you're that confused, just write down the emotes in your journal, and do all of them to each miner (while targetting them). This should work. Just make sure you're doing the ones that were taught to you.
Good luck!

Been awhile since I did that Quest but make sure to contact your NPC Linkpearl too. That could prevent you from proceeding.

i was having the same problem as you were when i first did this. it turns out what i was not doing, was targeting the other miners. i ONLY did it on the one closest to me. when i finally did an emote on the other one, it gave me the complete.
