    Question 8.2 Spoilers Why did they change Tinkmaster Overspark's characterization?

    Tinkmaster Overspark's been ingame since Vanilla, where he handed out some quests for Engineers and the Gnomeragan dungeon. He was also present in Pandaria AND Legion.

    In those quests, he seemed pretty nice overall

    I am Tinkmaster Overspark, and I am the chief architect for modern gnomish engineering principles in the world today. It is my job to ensure that the power of invention continues to shine brightest from our arclight spanners than anywhere else!

    Also, if you happen to know a good schematic for radiation elimination, we just so happen to be in the market for one right about now...

    Oh, this is wonderful! Thank you, <name>! I'll get to work immediately!!

    Poor, poor Techbot... Don't feel bad. We'll get you fixed.

    Now, where did I put that plug for my hydro-jack swivel spanner...
    He also liked his mind-controlled forsaken bat in legion.

    Sky Admiral Rogers says: Put that vile thing out of its misery already.
    Tinkmaster Overspawk says: He's not vile! Just... misunderstood.
    He did call the Forsaken freaks, but hey, it's not inaccurate and having SOME bite to him gave him personality.

    I'm puzzled why Blizz made him a complete jerk in 8.2 questing.

    EDIT:
    8.2 Dialogue

    You give many examples of him being nice, but none of him being a jerk? Most of us havent seen the 8.2 questing yet so we have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.

    Well, Tinkmaster Overspark has always been a jerk, but to several other races.
    You should have point out as well how he talked about Forsaken in Stormheim, pretty much putting them on peon levels.
    Not a big deal, but still there. Perhaps they got him to see the non-Gnomes, or just the hero, as a simpleton, wich, keeping in mind we just came from getting tricked by the most obvious Xal'atath shenanigan in existence, is pretty accurate.

    Yep the same, it's very hilarious, even a side gnome is more a character and more interesting than Anduin

    And even the gnome is out of character in this expansion. It's kind of impressive actually.
    Dickmann's Law: As a discussion on the Lore forums becomes longer, the probability of the topic derailing to become about Sylvanas approaches 1.

    Anduin's main advantage is that he is waifu to Alliance players.

    So are there any actual examples of him being a douchebag for those of us who have no idea what OP is talking about?

    I take it you don't know many Alliance. Most of us can't stand the little piss ant and try to ignore the mercifully few times he shows up.

    Good. The Alliance needs more jerks.
    The shadowy Daughter of Urthona stood before red Orc,
    When fourteen suns had faintly journey'd o'er his dark abode:
    His food she brought in iron baskets, his drink in cups of iron:
    Crown'd with a helmet and dark hair the nameless female stood;

    Probably because they didn't expect anyone to actually remember a Gnome character.
