Will there be Gnomes in WORLD OF WARCRAFT: CHRONICLE VOLUME 1?
We don’t know much about Mechagnomes. They definitely predate the opening of the Dark Portal. With all the coverage of the Titans and (presumably) the Watchers, we should learn more about the Mechagnomes. My fear is it contain only one sentence like, “And Mimiron created Mechagnomes” and that will be it.
Gnome history is ‘messy’ and has the biggest gaps of any race. Some questions I hope (but do not expect) to be answered.
- Why were Mechagnomes created?
- How did gnomes end up in Dun Morogh?
- Why don’t gnomes have a Monarchy anymore?
- How are High Tinkers elected? for how long?
- Sand/Voodoo Gnomes, WTF?
- Are gnomes related to pygmies, and by extension goblins?
- Is there a depreciated gnome descendant, like dwarves devolved to troggs?
These are all things that happened well before the Opening of the Dark Portal.
What I expect from Chronicles is:
- Old Gods vs Titans
- Old Gods vs Trolls
- Trolls vs Night Elves
- Night Elves vs Alarm Clocks
I hope Tauren, Dwarves, Goblins etc get coverage, and I really hope the Night elf stuff is not just War of the Ancients rehash, because I’ve read the War of the Ancients trilogy, all that stuff is well established and easily accessible. There is no reason to revisit it in detail.
I’m excited for Chronicle. I’m a complete lore nerd and the book looks beautiful. I just have to remind myself that it’s still a book and will have limited space, so their will be no way they could ever possibly answer every question I personally have.
What questions are you hoping get answered?
