Blizzard released some enticing information about the retaking of Gnomeregan this morning! (Confession: I had to stop myself from squealing at my cubicle.)
RETAKING THE HOMELAND. OMG OMG OMG.
There’s also been a movement over on Twitter/the general WoW forums, spearheaded by the fabulous Clay. You can check out the website for The Gnomeregan Offensive here.
Of course, I’m embracing these movements with open arms. I’ve made no secret of my want for Gnome Priests (or a healing-capable class, period), and now that I’m getting my wish, I will definitely be rolling one! I’ve already started working on her, and there’s a bit of fiction about her already up.
[EDIT: HOLY CARP HOW DID I FORGET ABOUT BARON'S FABULOUS MACHINIMA?!! World of Gnomecraft 2.0 GO WATCH IT IMMEDIATELY, THE MAN IS A FRIGGIN GENIUS.]
It had been so long! The walls of Ironforge were nice, sure. Strong, sturdy, easily able to withstand her tinkering. But it wasn’t home. The workshop she’d fled, half-finished tinkers scattered across the table as she’d hastily packed.
She peered up at Ashtoret, tugging the Draenei’s tail gently. “Tore? The High Tinker says we’ll be going home. Will… will you be there?”
Tore looked down at her with a smile. “I’ll always be there Spyri. Who else would shield you when you go rushing headfirst into danger? I’ll do anything I can to help you reclaim your home, Spyri. Anything.”
She grabbed Tore’s hand as the paladin knelt beside her, and they watched the High Tinker in silence as he assembled the first wave for the assault on Gnomeregan.
It was time to reclaim home.
