Gnomeland Reclamation, Liberation of Echo Isles

Gnomeregan reclaimation pre-Cataclysm expansion

Via MMO-Champion. A couple of very very very interesting achievements were added to the game files with this patch. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t intentional but …

  • Gnomecoming King – You assisted High Tinker Mekkatorque and the Gnomeregan Exiles in the recapture of Gnomeregan’s surface.
  • Gnomecoming Queen – You assisted High Tinker Mekkatorque and the Gnomeregan Exiles in the recapture of Gnomeregan’s surface.

Apparently, parts of the pre-Cataclysm event have been deployed in this patch and retaking Gnomeregan will be part of it!

Blizzard didn’t forget about horde players, it looks like Trolls will play a big part in the pre-Cataclysm event for the Horde :

New taxi nodes

  • Durotar – ET – CC Prologue Troll Taxi Bat Start (#438)
  • Durotar – ET – CC Prologue Troll Recruit End (#439)
  • Durotar – ET – CC Prologue – Troll Battle End (#440)

After going through the patch files I found a couple of extra spells that might be related to the event, see the spell comparison part of the new. Also, both Vol’jin and Mekkatorque had their appearance updated.
