    Mechagnome Customization Options Video



    Is there any reason to still think Mechagnomes are not going to become allied races with this ?

    Course they will.

    After you spend time farming pointless 75 rep a quest World Quests and doing a more than likely heavily timegated story.

    Gotta take core features and gate them. That's the Blizzard way these days. And no just because they have the word "Allied" next to them doesn't make them any different from races.

    Any chance for screen shots instead? Not a fan of videos.

    Well , that 's how it 's been for allied races since pre-BfA patch , so , yeah

    also Eleccy , your recent transition to self - style yourself as a WoW hater is very unbecoming

    One reason would be that gnomes are not popular as a race?

    Then again it could be an option to make them more popular

    Personally I pass on that Allied race and will /popcorn on the shitstorm why we don't get Tinkers

    /Shrug. Not happy with the game. Simple as that. Hence I'm critical. I think Allied Races are a cash grab scam of a system and just another example of taking something we normally got on day 1 away from us to then bring it back as a "feature".

    They took a core feature and rep/timegated it and made levelling flat out worse in the hopes people would just race change or boost. Simple as that.

    Is stating facts considered hating now? Seems like you hate it too

    If people are still saying Vulpera aren't gonna happen, I'd imagine people will refute Mechagnomes as well, until they're formally announced. If they're playable, I hope they add a "color" option to the prosthetics, since transmog the transmog potential will already be hindered by the lack of gloves/boots/pants/arms.

    That said, if they're not an allied race, I really hope they make those hairstyles unlockable for regular gnomes. That Dr. Robotnik mustache on the male is magnificent.

    My opinion is just that. I don't think I've ever thought of it as fact.

    8 different races (so far) in the timespan that we would get 1 or 2 new races at a time. While people argue about the same-ness of some races over others, we also got some completely unique models (Kul'Tiran, Zandalari male, Nightborne) out of it as well. And we know more are going to be released before 9.0.

    This feature isn't anything we've had in the past. Not sure how it can be seen as a "scam" when it probably took just as much work or more.

    I'd also go out on a limb and say people care more about having more race options than new starting zones, but that's just an opinion without evidence. Not that the reverse can be proved either.

    Leveling is not worse. You are not encourage to race change or level boost allied races as you loose out on heritage armor. The game actually encourages you to level the allied races because of rewards. Its great and all that you are jaded and the latest super hater on these forums. But don't try to claim things that are not true.

    Wow. I didn't realize they had that many customization options. Yeah, if I were a betting person, I'd be betting on mechagnomes as an allied race. The question at this point is if blizzard is going to introduce more than two allied races at a time.

    Yes it is. They were called races. These are just races that had less time put into them since most use existing skins/models (except maybe KT and Zandalari).

    There is absolutely no reason to rep/timegate these and "earning their trust" is just a bs lore reason.

    They're called Allied Races. The adjective matters otherwise no one's gonna know who you're talking about if you just start saying "these elves suck" with however many are in the game for instance.

    They each have different looks, different racials, get a unique mount, character customizations, and tabard
    , as well as unique heritage armor should someone level one up. The last bit being something even original starting races are getting because of how extra that is for Allied Races.

    But yeah, go ahead and downplay a feature that's been the biggest hit since probably transmog got added.

    People love to customize their characters and this feature is one of the best things for it.

    No, I've always believed they'd be introduced as allied races. I do not believe they'll be introduced as Tinker class though.

    No it doesn't.

    They are races. It's not a new feature. It's taking an existing one and gating it under the guise of a new feature. Sorry you can't see that I guess.

    The feature deserves downplaying when it's a scummy one.

    The feature is literally Races with a word plopped next to "Races".

    No sweat off my back if you can't enjoy more of a good thing.
