Winkin chathead.png

Winkin is the gnome owner of the Vinesweeper farm along with his wife, Mrs. Winkin and a friend of Rupert the Beard. He plays a small role in the Grim Tales quest and can be found in the sewers outside Nora T. Hagg's house, surrounded by Experiment No.2.

Winkin learned a spell to change the size of objects from Larry, which allowed him to shrink Ogleroots in order to fit them into his bags for easy transport to Draynor Market, where he would enlarge and sell them for profit.[1][2]

His venture would prove to be his undoing after he attracted the attention of Nora, whom was looking for ogleroots to both feed her experiments and concoct Shrink-me-quick potions. After he refused to share the secret spell, she kidnapped and imprisoned him in the sewers in order to maintain a steady supply of shrunk ogleroot.[3][4][5]

When offered liberation from his predicament, he refuses, wishing to keep an eye on Nora and her creations.[6]
