So, Mekkatorque is being declared King of all the gnomes? That's kind of an interesting development.
Well, while I am disappointed that mechagnomes are an allied race and not customization, this is absolutely the best possible story. Mekkatorque is still a normal gnome, and he leads all gnomes now. Good stuff, wish the forsaken story was as good lol.
I adore this. I called it as soon as they announced Mechagnomes in 8.2 that they'd unite and revive Gelbin. Tbh most people did.
Mechagnomes can't xmog gloves wrists feet pantsREASON blizzard never made naga race is the exscuse of them not wearing pants or shoesMechagnomes being an allied race is the breakthrough to let in Tortollan and naga be races that are playable.
Please tell me this is still just a late April fool's joke. I can see Blizzard exclusively just posting Mechagnomes with their armor to deliberately hide the litany of design abortions attributed to this April fool's joke so I know there must be something intended with this very poor joke.The Alliance is going to get their ACTUAL allied race announcement soon, right? This IS just a joke, right?
I didnt see this coming! With the high tinker restored, the Alliance really didnt nearly as much in the raid.
So, do I need an alliance character with exalted reputation like for the 8.1.5 races? Or just exalted like the 7.3/8.0 races?
Not a surprising development. I think it's fair to suggest most of us knew Gelbin was put on ice for the purposes of unifying both gnome races.
YES! Gelbin is ok! I'm still holding out hope that when the Mechagnomes do join us and when we complete the Heritage Armor requirements that those of us who are gnomes already could chose to mechanize parts of ourselves.
Aww, no snakes for Alliance. But that's alright, the creepy Mechagnomes were great, too. I think it would've made more sense to have them as a customization option instead, though. The allied races thing is a little weird in general.
