We have some big news concerning some of the smallest residents in Azeroth. Gnome players will at long last be able to play the Hunter class! That’s right—in World of Warcraft: Legion, you too will be able to rise up to become a big game hunter.
Long at the forefront of cutting-edge technology in Azeroth, the inventive gnomes are finally ready to break out the big guns. Their propensity for things that go “bang” and knack for high-tech weapons like rocket launchers, high-powered rifles, and death rays make them perfect candidates for hunting down prey.
And with the events about to unfold on the Broken Shore, High Tinker Mekkatorque has commanded his people to get outfitted and ready for battle—any way they know how.
Of course, gnomes wouldn’t be gnomes if they didn’t apply their own particular brand of engineering to their job—this time in the form of a new Hunter pet family: Mechanical.
Gnome and Goblin players will be able to tame this new kind of hard-to-find pet right from the start. Other races will also be able to learn how to control these artificial animals via a device Engineers will be able to make.
Most Mechanical pets will be challenging to tame, requiring you to first locate them and then use your Hunter abilities in unusual ways. (You didn’t think we’d make it easy, did you?)
For example, one rare mechanostrider requires you to create a special punch card that grants access to a closed section of Gnomeregan (we hope you remember the way). Once you locate the clockwork creature, you’ll then need to figure out how to overload its circuits. Solve the puzzle, and you’ll have this magnificent mechanized minion striding by your side.
What do you feed a high-tech pet that’s not technically alive? Mechanical Bits, of course! Hunters will be able to keep their shiny metal friends “happy” and “healthy” through the creative use of Engineering supplies such as a Handful of Copper Bolts.
And just in case you think we’re lowering ourselves by making “small” jokes, we present to you the Gnome Hunter’s starting pet—the Giant Mechanical Rabbit—as proof!
Will you rise up to the challenge and collect them all?
wow... druid at last!looks great!
I don't see owlcat here. Does that mean they are saving that model for a later date? Like... maybe, Arakkoa Druids? Sorry, my hope never dies.
This is just for artifact customization, we're adding some more stuff soon (not TM).
What can I say? MIAUUUUUWWWWWWW BABEH
No Valor from A Time to Strike?
It gives 500 valor, like the other weekly event quests.
The Time to Strike also rewards 500 Valor in addition to Apexis, Oil, and Garrison Resources, now.
Loving the cat forms.
Super excited for mecha pets, also I like the idea of taming them through mini-games.
Do Tauren druids no longer have horns when shape shifted? I kinda liked that uniqueness :(
Oh my god! These new models are just perfect. Can't wait for the expansion.
They aren't merging the different druid models, are they? I really, really, really like the unique models depending on race. I will be so sad :( Are these just the first models found?
one of the new feral cats looks like Garurumon
Umm, is this 2016?The (World Event #560) runs between October 7th and October 12th. Sorry, I'm sure its just a bad copy/paste job, just doing my best as editor :)
The Apexis Bonus Event runs between October 7th and October 12th. This is from last month, please update it lol.
I've always liked how Feral felt but I didn't like the cat visuals. I think that this art if beautiful and unique! Just want the kitty's needed. :)
