audio was realesed and it has ben discovered that there will be a taking back of gnomeregan event with phases, but when they go to reclaim the inside of the city after taking the airstrip and upper gnomeregan a new lepper gnome bomb is set off, so the gnomes must retreat back to the area they have taken, meaning there will now be a city and an instance
if they turn gnomer into a capital city then how do i get to murder gigantic piles of them at one time with 1 spellcast T.T my favorite pass-time will be no more!
If there is a quest line to purge Gnomeregan of irradiation and make it a home city, I think the Horde should attack it first :-P
as a horde i dont know much alli lore, but ive read some and Gnomeregan as a city :))) cant wait to down the Gnomeregan boss (The Race leader) i wonder will there be a new horde capital., seeing as the Trolls and orcs both live in Orgrimmar. maybee Zul'Aman may become thier capital? i dunno, but this really does seem cool, also the other thing. For the Horde! Achievement. i wonder will there be a 5th boss on it? who knows. but its really a cool idea to HOPE for / be implemented
From the looks of it Gnomeregan will become the new Gnome 1-5 zone. It doesn't make much sense to be a functional city because it's right next to Ironforge, and only the surface is actually held at the end of the event.
MMO has just posted blue posts regarding Gnomer and Echo Isles...looks like they are part of patch 3.9 There are a couple pictures.... little blue gnome army hehehehttp://www.mmo-champion.com/news-2/an-assault-on-two-fronts-patch-3-9/
So still a long while off heh.
Only the surface area is becoming a starting zone; the Instance will still be there.
hmm...... I smell a incoming new CoT dungeon to replace Gnomeregan :)
I really do not like current Gnomeregan as an instance. I won't cry if the instance is taken out of business once and for all. No more LFG tool dropping me in there.
