    Slightly off topic, but this is something that bugs me.
    To be fair, every single one of those people died and came back exactly once, and most didn't even come back fully, as most were zombies of some nature.
    * Onyxia: The version we fought at 60 and the one at 8 are the same encounter lorewise, and the next time we encounter her, she's a barely thinking zombie.
    *Nefarian: We fought him in Blackwing Lair, and the next time we see him he is a zombie dragon, though a better quality one than his sister.
    *Kael'thas was killed in The Eye, and the next time we see him, he's a demon-zombie thing.
    *Anub'arak was killed in Azjol-Nerub, and is brought back as an ice-zombie spider.
    *Gara'jal: We encounter him once in Mogu'Shan, with the warning we will see him again when his body dies. The next time we see him, he is a spirit (AKA still dead).

    Hogger stands as the odd man (Gnoll) Out, because he's the only one on that list that's still alive the second time we run into him.

    Uh oh. You might have just jinxed it and doomed us all.

    All fear the coming of Zombie Hogger! Run now while you still can, you fools.

    I don't think we actually kill him in Stockades either, for what it's worth.

    Edit: I take that back, though the fact that they call attention to the ease with which we killed him could easily be swung to mean that he didn't actually die there.

    Ah, I namely consider these guys "Merely a setback" because normally when I slay someone in any game, I expect them to basically stay down.

    I also didn't mean they came back like 20 times, just two. The fact remains they came back. What's Milhouse at though? 3?

    Wilfred Fizzlebang is what comes to my mind. He had the potential to become something but Blizzard decided a different fate.

    Gnomes are like ants, so there gotta be one big queen some where under azeroth.

    That would be Darkrider Arly. And yes, she's about as badass as a gnome can possibly get. Also, Mekkatorque is pretty powerful himself.

    Well, my point was more that everyone on that list, save Hogger, remained dead and were brought back in some non-living form.

    Wasn't there a gnome that tossed a ring into a volcano? Wrong lore?

    Probably the most powerful would be Indus, who unfortunately has no reference actually in game: http://www.wowwiki.com/Indus

    My in game personal favorite is Niby the Almighty; an old warlock quest giver from vanilla who makes an appearance in the siege of ICC: http://www.wowwiki.com/Niby_the_Almighty

    Other then the High Tinker, I'd say no.

    The problem is that there has yet to be a lore acceptable reason to have a gnome character as an important hero or powerful character. There hasn't really been much reason to showcase gnomes in the game as anything other than a comic relief element. Hopefully that will change in the next expnnation.

    But the real question is: WHEN WILL THEY EVER TAKE BACK GNOMERGAN?

    Well, he first appeared in the Arcatraz, then he was in Stonecore, and now he's a Brawler's Guild boss. So yep, 3. I've never seen him be defeated in the Brawler's Guild, so he might not even be dead yet. Who knows?

    They aren't supposed to be taken seriously in the story to make a massive villain or epic hero. Never-the-less as a fighting force gnomish operatives kicked the snot out of a bunch of Korkron in the depths of Garrosh's bunker so they can fight as well as any one else.

    Wilfred Fizzlebang ought to have been very powerful.. taken into consideration he managed to summon Jaraxxus, sure he got horribly murdered but summoning one of the top dogs of The legion ( well not a top dog as in the likes of Kil'jeaden etc. But still) is enough to make the assumption that he was a pretty darn powerful warlock.
