Harrison Jones is an archaeologist and explorer, much like his namesake.
Jones first appears as a level 70 NPC located inside Zul'Aman. Upon entering Zul'Aman, the inner gate into the city is shut; speaking to Jones will cause him to don his hat (another Indy trademark), shout out and run over to the gong near the door.
He and five players need to hit the gong (a channeled effect, like summoning) until it stops moving; shortly thereafter the gates will open, beginning the 20-minute timed event.

- Lana Dubing flutters her eyelashes at Harrison Jones.
- Ahem! Well... ah, next week: "Tanaris." Starting with the excavation of Broken Pillar by Marvon Rivetseeker in Year 22.
- I will be here doing research if anybody's got any problems for the next hour and a half.
- Puzzling. They're clearly harnessing great power from their sacrifices. But for what?
- Suit yourself. At least five of you must assist me if we're to get inside. Follow me....
- According to my calculations, if enough of us bang the gong at once the seal on these doors will break and we can enter.
- I've researched this site extensively and I won't allow any dim-witted treasure hunters to swoop in and steal what belongs in a museum. I'll lead this charge.
- In fact, it would be best if you just stay here. You'd only get in my way....
