Three problems/questions I had.1: How does Gelbin recognize Erazmin? He's been in a coma. 2: Where do junkergnome warlocks come from? We've never seen them have magic users, just tech that mimics magic. Technomages I could get. Technoshaman would make even more sense, with electrical and fire attacks, and aerosol healing. Demons and curses, though? they don't even try to explain them so far. 3: Gelbin's title "king" has been honorary, Gnomeregan is at most an elective monarchy. Having Prince Erazmin, from a hereditary monarchy, recognize him as king moves Gnomeregan away from a republic. and finally, this isn't a story problem, just an annoyance during a quest, but the crawler you get to carry the pod when you retrieve it from troggs, it pulls adds as you fly. Also, I didn't see it carry the pod for me, but I see the screenshots here have it carrying the pod, so maybe it was fixed in the meantime.
BFA is not an alt-friendly expansion at all.What the addition of Mechagnomes and Vulpera does is encourage players prone to switch races because they like how the race looks to buy more race changes.It is how , financially , they will earn some money in a fragile business-wise month of January.Why do I say that? Well , as someone who leveled 2 characters simultaneously and geared them simultanously and also did everything 2 times for the essences I can assure you , you will be in a world of mental pain if you want to do it again on another character.It is why I sticked just to 2 characters this expansion.I dont know how people play a game but when I play a game eventually I want to push it to see as far and as high as I can go so , for me , if a class needs Blood of the Enemy to do optimal DPS in m+ or Raid , that class , no matter how much I would love to play it , its out to me because I have to do the 30 000 (yes , I used zeroes instead of "k" to empathize how much it is) honor achievement for the rank 3.What is even more worrying and frustrating is that if you want to raid after Ny'alotha gets released and most people move on from the Eternal Palace raid you will have to pug your buttcheeks for Condensed Life-Force so you can do some damage in Ny'alotha raid.Those who do mythic plus mostly , can always have their Essence of the Focusing Iris.Anyway , I went way off rail there I just wanted to empathize that Blizzard is doing this to encourage you to buy race changes unless you want to go through the ordeal that I partly described.
For me, the rep question is a moot point - I did all the Mechagon crap on a gnome character (because it made the most sense, lol), and he'll be looking forward to getting his boss back - and bringing in some new friends, too. But, as I said before, I am fairly sure that Mechagon is going to end up working like the other neutral-until-it's-time-to-pick-sides races (essentially the first four we got toward the end of Legion), in that you can get the rep and dungeon achievements with whoever you want - you just need a 120 Alliance character to do the unlock quest chain.
Mechagnomes help Gelbin come back. Called it!
Gnomeregan was a democracy after Mechagon left. The monarchy can name Mekkatorque successor to the throne all they want, that doesn't dissolve the government of Gnomeregan on it's own. And the arrogance of claiming the title before was a part of Mekkatorque's blindness to the betrayal of Thermaplugg, a plotline he was supposed to have learned from and grown past. How is this a positive moment?
This is great! I only hope they fix the glitch at the end of Mechagon. I ran the dungeon last week got loot but didn't receive credit for the quest/achievement, and no, I wasn't in a raid group.
So the Horde get a toy for the Vulpera and Alliance get nothing? >_>
Then you get to the quest Voyage to Safety, where you need help from Bondo Bigblock if you are using the HH mount he will make fun of you.https://imgur.com/a/IL2R28Q
I've done all the requirements but can't start the unlock quest?
