Recognition at last!

I received this letter over the weekend.  It is about time.

“To the King of Gnomes, Mekgineer Thermaplugg,

It has come to our attention that you are smarter and cooler than the current High Tinker of the Gnomes.  We would like to offer you a place in the Alliance.  Mekkatorque is boring, we like you a lot.  If you accept, please repair the tram that runs from the entrance of Gnomeregan to the Tinkers court.  We have a large number of Ambassadors that we wish to send for you to meet, and they would like to by-pass the trogg filled tunnels and security systems you have put in place.

Looking forward to meeting you,


King Varian Wrynn, Council of Three Hammers, Tyrande Whisperwind, Malfurion Stormrage, Prophet Velen, Genn Greymane, Aysa Cloudsinger, Jaina Proudmoore, Anduin Wrynn, Master Mathias Shaw, Danath Trollbane, Grand Admiral Jes-Tereth, Halford Wyrmbane, Vanndar Stormpike, Lord Darius Crowley, Vereesa Windrunner, Shandris Feathermoon, Mordent Evenshade, Broll Bearmantle, Muninn Magellas, Brann Bronzebeard, Kurdran Wildhammer, Velog Icebellow, Nobundo, Jarod Shadowsong, Arechron, Ivar Bloodfang, and Elder Lusshan”

I accept.  I need to get the trains running on time down here anyway!

2016: #YearOfTheGnome

Ressa brought the PR firm back.  They ‘work shopped’ the campaign slogan I had.  (They called it a ‘workshop’ but they didn’t have a workbench or anything.)  I’m annoyed they insisted it not have my name in it.  How are people supposed to know it’s me?  Whatever, I’ll try anything once.

So #Sicco2016 is out, The new slogan is “2016: #YearOfTheGnome”


I won.

My goal was always to get Gnomes out of Gnomeregan and exploring Azeroth and making new gnome settlements.

Toshley’s Station, Fizzcrank Airstrip, heck even New Tinker Town are all MY Vision, MY Legacy!

The cost to Gnomeregan was high, but the gnome race has been reforged in the way I always saw them.  Fighting for a larger place in the world!


Gnome/Trogg Deck FTW!

The new Tavern Brawl is AMAZING!

Here are my personally recommendations for deck building.

1. Pick any class, but Druid and Mage work the best, Shaman the worst.

2. Put in ALL THE SPELLS!  Seriously, ALL OF THEM!

3. Put in ALL THE TROGGS!  Troggs get a bonus every time your enemy casts a spell.

4. Put in ALL THE GNOMES!  You want to draw cards.  Only use the Dalaran Mage is you have a lot of Direct Damage spells. (Mage/Hunter/Rogue)


Another Trogg Solution

I’ve already outlined my ideas for using Gearmaster Mechazod to purify Leper Gnomes by ‘removing’ the ‘Curse of the Flesh’.  I am beginning to wonder is the same process would work on troggs.

There are rumors that say troggs used to be dwarves or some such non-sense.  But if the Gearmaster can turn a gnome in to a Mechagnome, why couldn’t he turn a trogg in to a dwarf?  or really anything more useful than a trogg!
