Patch 8.3 PTR - Mechagnome Unlock Quest Chain Preview
The most recent update to the PTR has added the unlock quest chain for Mechagnomes! If you are an Alliance character and have a toon exalted with the Rustbolt Resistance, you can start the chain. SPOILERS AHEAD!

  • The chain starts from Aysa Cloudsinger in the Stormwind embassy. The first quest is "Urgent Care." Aysa wants you to find Kelsey Steelspark in Boralus Harbor as Mekkatorque's condition is dire and they need help!
  • Upon arriving Kelsey says Mekkatorque's pod is powering down and they can no longer hear him speak. His pulse has also slowed, but she has a plan. She gives you the quest "Waning Energy" and asks you to meet her at Proudmoore Keep.
  • When you get there you find the Tidesages working on the Pod, and Kelsey says what we are about to do might not be the most accepted plan, but it better to do it and ask for forgiveness later.
  • You are given the quest "Someone Who Can Help" and Kelsey thinks the Mechagnomes can help and wants to bring the pod to Mechagon Isle. She wants to get the pod on a homing copter that is delivering supplies to the island from Hook Point.
  • You head over to the homing copters and are able to bring one back and route it to send the pod to Mechagon. Kelsey says she probably should have warned Erazmin before she sent it, and suggests they get to the island before it does.
  • When you arrive, Erazmin says it would be his pleasure to help the High Tinker. He suggests you speak to Waren to find out what materials are needed and gives the quest "Junkyard Treasures."
  • Waren gives the quest "The Current Schematic" and says she can modify one of their existing devices to give access to Mekkatorque without disturbing his life preserving functions. She asks you to collect 4 Heat Tolerant Ooze from the scrapbots and scraphounds in the Heaps, and 6 Acquisitioned Machine Parts from the Outflow slimes. She says the chances of crushing the occupant are sub-50 percent.
  • When you turn in the parts, you receive "Voyage to Safety" and find out the homing copter carrying Mekkatorque's pod was taken out by troggs! He says Piston has a vehicle able to handle this task and tells you to meet his crew in Bondo's yard. You then have to take out Rust-Eye the Cleaver on the east coast of Mechagon with Piston and his Mechanospider.
  • You kill the trogg and retrieve the pod, and Piston places it on the platform when you get back. Waren tells you construction proceeds as scheduled and Christy will address the occupant's bio-mechanical integrity. You receive the quest "Better, Stronger..Less Dead" Christy says that King Mechagon might have been crazy, but his minions did have exemplary robotic creation capabilities. She wants you to collect a Neural Accelerator, Omni Electromagnetic Amplifier, and a Flux Energized Servos from erratic units around Mechagon.
  • Upon collecting the parts, Christy says they need modifications and sends you back to Erazmin. He gives you the quest "Him?" He wants you to go around Rustbolt and ask his people what they want in a leader. From what he hears, the High Tinker has always led his people by necessity, never seeking or desiring a crown. Erazmin thinks the gnomes should be united once again!
  • After speaking to the various gnomes, Erazmin says to share the info with Christy, who gives you the quest "Mental Attunement" and asks you to activate the Synchroscope when she tells says so. Christy wants to give Mekkatorque some improvements, but Kelsey says they like him the way he is. You then open the pod and retrieve Mekkatorque!
  • You are then given the quest "A Strong Heart" and told that Mechagon's Annihilotron's heart with serve a new purpose, but you must help the retrieval team get it back here.
  • You meet Kelsey at the entrance to Junkwatt Depot and take out a robot to get the Spark Reactor and deliver it back to Christy. You then activate a defibrillator to revive Mekkatorque with the Spark Reactor attached to his chest. He is confused at first, but then thanks everyone. Kelsey says she knows a way to repay the favor to the Mechagnomes and you get the quest "Ascension" from Mekkatorque. He says the way to repay the Mechagnomes is by helping them take back the remaining parts of their city!
  • You, Mekkatorque, Erazmin, and Kelsey enter the city via a portal nearby and takeout Blastatron X-81. As you walk through the city, Erazmin says that he would love nothing more than to have the Mechagnomes reunite with Gnomeragan and be lead by the High Tinker. Mekkatorque agrees provided Erazmin remains at his side as his counselor and friend. Erazmin accepts and the two prepare to address their people together. You witness the announcement and the gnomes are united, officially bringing the Mechagnomes into the Alliance! (Ending is currently a bit bugged on the PTR)

    Blizzard has learned the lesson. I guess that's why they adding new customizations to the existing races in Shadowlands, and not adding "Allied race: black human" and "Allied race: asian human".

    The only actual allied races we got so far were Void Elves, Nightborne and Vulpera. Every other allied race could very well had been customizations to their respective races.

    Well now that we disqualified Garrosh
    you disqualified him, you are wrong
    remind me again how many racial leaders that got turned villain have the horde lost... ohh that's right Zero!
    right now in wow we have 3, the alliance have zero

    like i said, come back when the high king become evil and we raid stormwind then the alliance whiny will make sense.

    My whole point was that if you're going to disqualify Staghelm because he died after getting hit with the villein bat, and failing his first plan, then Garrosh falls in the same folder.

    But the point you where trying to make before was that Alliance never got hit with the Villein bat not that we didn't go without racial leaders.

    Up until just before Cata, Malfurion was preoccupied with the Dream, and most certainly not around. Until that point Fandral was the co leader of the Nightelves, during the Cata Lead up we found out that he had fallen to the nightmare, and the whole point you where trying to make beforehand was that none of the Alliance leaders where hit with the villein bat.

    No mater how much you dislike it He was in lore AND in game considered A co Leader of the Nightleves

    Garosh, and Sylvanas (Who isn't dead yet)so 2 not 3. I would also point out that Sylvanas was never a good person post raising, so acting like this is some kind of new development is silly.

    You got to Attack AND blow up Theramore, You Burned Teldrassil, AND you blew up UC to keep it out of enemy hands. Alliance so far has gotten to blow up 2 walls (UC west wall, Daz treasure wall), and 1 gate (Org front gate). come back to me when you have Suramar blow up because of something Tyranda did and afterwords The Alliance is let of with a "well, try not to do it again".

    no im gonna disqualify him because he is a normal character, not the racial leader you would mke sense if it was Tyrande or Malfurion who leve the alliance and become villain, this didn't happen, alliance leader in wow never became evil and we had to raid alliance cities and deal with then, its alliance favoritism, deal with that.
    But the point you where trying to make before was that Alliance never got hit with the Villein bat not that we didn't go without racial leaders.
    And the point is entirely true, no alliance leader leave the alliance and became evil and we had to kill then, Benedictus and fandral were not racial leaders, theyw ere just characters and the horde lost in the same way.
    Up until just before Cata, Malfurion was preoccupied with the Dream, and most certainly not around.
    still is an allince leader tht you didn't lost or got killed, grats we don't have this luck
    Until that point Fandral was the co leader of the Nightelves
    nope, he wasn't, he is almost a nobody, just because he is influent and have importance don't mean he is the racial elader, is like saying Nazgring was a orc leader.
    And you Disqualified Fandral and you're wrong.
    an nobody who was not the racial leader, the racial elader of the night elves are tyrande and Malfurion, simple as that.



    Garosh, and Sylvanas (Who isn't dead yet)so 2 not 3.
    Gallywix becme evil and we lost him too, that alone is more than alliance ever have lost even if you consider nobodies
    I would also point out that Sylvanas was never a good person post raising, so acting like this is some kind of new development is silly.
    it don't matter she was the leader and we lost, something the allince don't have to face

    Tauren leader is gone? bring is lame son
    the dwarf leader is gone? bring 3 leaders in replacement, and actually bring back that leader and make him even more importante

    Troll leader is gone? let those fucker stay without racial leader for 2 expnsions
    gnome leader is frozen? he will come back even more powerful in the same expansion!

    so fair amright?
    You got to Attack AND blow up Theramore,
    an non capital city and Jaina didn't die, you got to Raid, sack and beat the warchief.
    You Burned Teldrassil
    and Malfurion get away.

    .
    AND you blew up UC to keep it out of enemy hands
    one cit for other city

    come back to me when you have Suramar blow up because of something Tyranda did and afterwords The Alliance is let of with a "well, try not to do it again".
    what? lmao, this don't have make sense

    Come back to me when the high king become evil and we have to raid and sack stormwind
    come back to me when an alliance race stay more than one expansion without a racial leader.

    Would you rather Alliance got no new races at all? Because they aren't getting Blood Elf.

    They found a way to make them exciting though- by giving them ungodly powerful racials. Once they get nerfed everoyne will be stuck with an ugly little mech midget that they dont want to play.

    Staghelm maynot have been a Racial Leader, but he was Leader of the Cenarion Circle and Darnassian druids, Teacher Lieutenant of Malfurion Stormrage. He was not a nobody.. He was a Nathanos .

    ALso the part you did not understand. THat was them saying that Alliance has not Destroyed a whole City beyond repair. THey are saying you can make a compairson when and If Tyrande when and nuked Suramar with all her power to a point the city was unliveabele and beyone repair. . The Alliance has broken into the cities, but have not raised the like the horde. Theramore and Teldrassil can never be repaired. They are gone. Undercity , the Troll Capital the Gate of Orgrimmar. They are fixable. So do not act like it is the same ting at all.

    And nathanos is also a nobody

    again, he lost a racial leader, and the elader of the faction, THREE IN A ROW, the alliance didn't

    he was not a racial leader, just another night elf, he don't count as a racial leader, he is just another character who died, and if we are counting this the horde also lost far more.

    thats completely irrelevant how you did in this context, its done, both races lost their cities, end.

    The Alliance has broken into the cities, but have not raised the like the horde
    the alliance raided and sacked a horde capital main city, the horde enver did that with the alliance

    Theramore
    not a main racial city
    and Teldrassil can never be repaired.
    druids can repair

    Undercity ,
    Gone and in alliance control, if it can be repaied they can take it

    the Troll Capital the Gate of Orgrimmar. They are fixable. So do not act like it is the same ting at all.
    it can be fixed but was raided, sacked and their inhabitants killed regardless, and the horde never did that.

    Again, come back when we raid stormwind to kill/capture evil Anduin, then we will be even.

    Wow you is real nitpicky. Saying Lore Characters the right hand men of the Leaders are nobodies... YOu wanna be that way, fine. Call me when Horde gets content cut to ship the game. Cause that happend to the Alliance. A whole chunk of the lead into twilight Highlands was cut just to ship the game while the horde got a hole much better introduction to the zone. In pandaria, a key component who show that Jaina was not wrong for the Purge of Dalaran was cut as well. THis was horde side but, it was evident that Aethas Sunreaver was complete in the theft of the Divine Bell. Knowing how you have acted this is the best and final point. From the Moment the Orcs of Draenor made the decision to corrupt themselves for power. They have been a plague that has infected the rest of the races that choose to join the filth that is the Horde.

    vanilla content the horde had content cut, zones cities and everything else, that they had to make things even in cataclysm

    I wouldn't bother too much with him.

    After all, he still believes, to this day, that the Kul'Tiras allied race was made in one single patch cycle, and only due to player demand, despite interviews from the developers saying it was planned since before the expansion went live, confirmation tweets prior to BfA going live, and datamines of the Kul'Tiran druid forms.

    On the other hand Mechagnomes look as if they were made just for 8.2 to prep an allied race to be Vulpera counterpart, Horde players were hyped for Vulpera since they were announced, Alliance gets another race that is rushed to create a counterpart for the sake of it, I mean who ever heard of "Void Elves" until they were pushed into the game? There wasn't a single one of these, and no Alleria has unique model, yet no tentacly hair, blue skin or anything.

    It was pretty obvious that neither Sethrak nor Ankoan qualify, because they aren't humanoid enough (plus Sethrak for Alliance would upset Horde who feel it's "their" race too), so they HAD to prep something else.

    Also their idea of racials is very questionable. After uber weak Kul Tiran racial setup, they seem to overcompensate in the Mechagnomes, in b4 nerf like Dark Irons got.

    Vulpera I don't even know what their racial does, it just says use a trick from a bag, with no specific description, so can't say whether it's good or bad, at least Zanadalari had good set of racials, but that could again be compensating for fairly weak Mag'har.
