    I agree with this. Wait, no. Put them into their own faction, just the gnomes. Then when they play as these gnomes, they're only allowed to wear one item, a shirt, a shirt with a target on it. They'll also have -50% movement speed, and they gain reverse experience, and killing one will result in fireworks.


    Anyways, my horrible racism aside, this is the worst idea since I heard someone suggest gnome paladins. It's bad enough we have dwarf paladins

    I personally don't think gnomes will ever be able to became either shamans or druids, they are very separated from the nature, and prefer using machines to ease their jobs. Gnome hunter, on the other side, would actually be a quite nice idea, I hope I'll see it someday.

    Here's another argument: gnomes are so tiny, nobody would be afraid of a 1/3 meters tall 'bear'.

    Steam punk druids!
    Then pandarian druids would make more sense, after all.

    You mean it's bad enough we have Tauren paladins. :P

    Gnome paladins would make perfect sense though, every paladin ability can be explained through the use of gadgets and engineering.

    I'm not much into lore and stuff, but isn't paladins suposed to be super duper good guys? Not to have their magic explained by gadgets? <.<

    I want a panda DK! None of my chars can be pandas

    Eh, Goblin shaman totems are basically steampunk gadgets no? Afaik paladins don't really have to be totally good as such though, if their conviction is strong enough Light will still serve them (like the Scarlet Crusade or even Blood Elf/Tauren paladins).

    I'd support gnome druids if - and only if - their shapeshifts involved jumping into and piloting bear, cat, moonkin and tree mechs. With bubble cockpits.

    Gnomes love mechanical things, not nature, in fact they are pretty much the complete opposite. Unless your gonna have a gnome wondering around in an "iron man like kitty suit" there is no link, and even the whole iron man kitty thing would be a stretch :P

    Edit, I did happen to find this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...v=40CwkRrFqfU#!

    Gave me a giggle.

    This is one of the combinations that would make least sense actually.

    Gnome hunters? sure. Gnome paladins? I can accept that. Gnome druids or shamans? No.

  14. #34
    only if they give them unique forms like instead of bear they get sewer rat and instead of a big cat the get a tabby...or instead of a tree the get a bush

  15. #35
    Natural Druid, No. Tech-Druid, yes. They should get a mechanical suit at specific levels that turns into a machine version of the druid. It would still be an instant shift, and work a bit like the ironman suit. Essentially a mechanical bear, cat, moonkin, tree, hawk. I think the mechanical suit would be an awesome invention

    The majority of druid spells have a leaf or vine effect that gnomes just can't pull off.

    I would however like to see mechanical hunter pets, which could be created by engineers and sold on the auction house for hunters. Make some kind of revenue maker for engineers. I really don't care if Gnomes become hunters or not but I am not against them.

    I'd play a Troll that turned his back on the Loa and worships the god of gizmos, gadgets and what nots, packs a robo pet, Rifle with scope and mechanical mount.

    Paladins, wearing heavy armours. I never understood why they are able to become warriors or Death Knights. A tiny .. thing sure won't be able to hold such a heavy armour.

    Gnome armor is a lot lighter than human armor simply because it is smaller. A gnome in plate probably has more endurance than a human.

    Well, the new "mechanical" 5.1 pets include a robo-bear cub and a robo-kitten amongst others. Those would make perfect gnome "druid" forms..

    ....but they wouldn't (and couldn't) be druids... Maybe a "mechanical shapeshifter"/technomancer class, or something like this could do the trick..?

    And instead of healing themselves, they would die.
