Secret Gnomeregan Boss Found!

Recommended Posts

kKnUm3s.jpg

Endgineer Omegaplug comes out and kills the final boss, drops a toy that makes you a Leper Gnome.

 

With Senior Game designer Jeremy Feasel teasing that there are more secrets left to be found and everyone frantically looking around the Broken Isles for any possible clue it seems almost miraculous that anyone actually went back to Gnomeregan of all places and found a brand new secret boss!

After some electricity-related hints on twitter, redditor Nexeoes discovered a Mimiron-like button, but much much smaller that can be pressed after reaching the final boss and NOT killing him. Endgineer Omegaplugg then comes out, kills Engineer Thermaplugg and can then be fought. Now, this is a level 110 boss and apparently hits VERY hard so you'll need a well geared team if you want to get his only piece of loot, Vial of Green Goo, which everyone in the party gets. As mentioned above, the boss is pretty tricky, so check out the full rundown of abilities and mini-guide Nexeos shared in the reddit thread for more info.

The button is located on the first pillar to the left as you enter the room.

Now, as secrets go, this is a pretty solid one and was probably added to the game when the Hunter pet was placed in Gnomeregan, but it doesn't sound like the one previously alluded to by Jeremy Feasel since it doesn't have much of anything to do with "the opposite of the ocean". So I think it's safe to say we still have a major secret floating around and I for one can't wait to find out what it is!

I found something what can lead to secret, but I'm not sure... During WQ in Black Rook Hold arena, there is torch holder on the central pillar with raven statue. Torch holder (with torch attached) can be clicked and it moves, like you see in movies, when you open secret passage with it. Unfortunately, torch is there only during WQ, a there isn't much to time to explore what happens after you click it.

Man, I Hope Blizzard does that to other old dungeons as well. This increases the replay value. Imagine finding a secret boss or event in ICC (like something related to Bolvar) or Ulduar (which plays a role in the Legion storyline with Magni and the Pillars of Light).

Is this the thing that leads to the stairs to exit the arena?

Would be a nice addition for dungeons that include timewalking, since people will stumble across it.

I love that they have done this for Gnomergan.  I also agree with the other posters here and would like to see more of this in the older dungoens or if they wanted to make it timewalking only content.  I think it would be awesome to do this so we can get more people to see some of the older content that really was and still is great.

No idea. I wanna try that again with full party, so I don't get attacked all the time. But arena WQ isn't there for almost a week now.

Let us know what you find when it does come up again!

I'd like to see a hidden boss in the Stockades. In a room behind Hogger, there will be a hidden chest with a key. Use this key to open a secret passage which lead you to the secret boss.

Would be awesome to see a figure from a quest that was a "bad guy" appear, as Hogger did, and they ended up being behind the revolt.

      Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorms on Mythic difficulty after they buffed the drop rate to two mounts per run. As a result, she has been reverted to only drop 1 mount until the underlying issue gets fixed.
      Blizzard is currently investigating a bug that affects Mythic Jaina in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid and she now only drops one Glacial Tidestorm until further notice.
      Customer Support won't be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted, according to the official support page.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We should have received two mounts after today's hotfix, however after we kill Jaina we receive no mount at all.
      We identified an issue were Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorm mounts on Mythic difficulty. She has been reverted to now drop only 1 mount again while the underlying issue is investigated.

      Customer Support will not be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted.
      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard buffed the drop rate of Glacial Tidestorm and Ny'alotha Allseer to two per run, because it took up to 20 weeks for a full Mythic group to get the mounts for each member. You can find more details here.

      Redditor Arang_Choi is back with two more recreations of Warcraft lore icons in Minecraft, after his Lich King one we've already covered. We get to see how Illidan, Ragnaros and Deathwing were made in their truly massive scope (or megabuilds, as they're called), and they're really impressive.
      While I'd say Ragnaros came out the best of the three, Illidan is really great as well, even coming off a little Protoss/Zeratul-y with the low details in his face - or maybe he's just wearing a Defias mask:
      Ragnaros is his old fiery self, but it seems this version is post-Molten Core, as some raiders have taken Sulfuras from him and/or doused it in a whole lot of Eternal Quintessence!
      Deatwing is appropriately gigantic, and maybe we can get him and the Stormwind recreation together to re-enact the ending of the Cataclysm intro cutscene.

      Which one is your favorite?

      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard increased the number of Mythic mounts that drop from BfA end bosses to two, meaning Jaina will drop two Glacial Tidestorms and N'Zoth two Ny'alotha Allseers, instead of just one. 
      It took a whole raid group up to 20 weeks to obtain Mythic mounts from BfA end bosses, so Blizzard decided to increase the number of mounts that drop on Mythic difficulty to two given that both mounts will have their drop chance reduced to 1% once Shadowlands goes live.
      Glacial Tidestorm drops from Lady Jaina Proudmoore on Mythic Difficulty in Battle of Dazar'alor.
      "Though she commands a variety of magical powers, Jaina has always been most proficient at summoning powerful elementals of water and ice."

      Ny'alotha Allseer drops from N'Zoth on Mythic difficulty in Ny'alotha the Waking City.
      "To find him, drown yourself in the Circle of Stars."

      You can find more about Visions of N'Zoth mounts here.

      We have a whole lot more Mythic mounts coming in as both Jaina and N'Zoth are dropping double the amount, more nerfs for healers in Horrific Visions (in groups of 2), as well as specific Stormwind vision nerfs, a brawl switch for PvP and more.

      For Classic we have a fix for a disconnect issue when queueing for a Battleground.
      February 14 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar’alor Lady Jaina Proudmoore now drops 2 Glacial Tidestorm mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. Ny’alotha, the Waking City N’Zoth the Corruptor now drops 2 Ny'alotha Allseer mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. With these mounts becoming quite rare once Shadowlands comes out, taking 20 weeks or more for a full Mythic raid group to get the mounts felt excessive. Horrific Visions
      Reduced the health of enemies for groups of 2 or more that include at least 1 healer. Developers’ note: We expected that groups with a healer would gain efficiency by taking more risks, but we've found that this gain is offset by healers shifting focus from damage to healing as group size increases, so we're adjusting creature health accordingly. Stormwind Alleria Windrunner Darkened Sky now drains 40 Sanity (was 60 Sanity). When the Trade District bonus objective is complete, Chains of Servitude is now cast once during the fight (was twice). Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Fixed an issue which prevented items from being forged with the +12 Corruption version of Ineffable Truth (Corruption Effect). Player versus Player
      The upcoming Teeming Islands Brawl has been replaced with Temple of Hotmogu. Temple of Hotmogu Brawl’s bonus movement speed and haste have been increased to 50%. WoW Classic
      Fixed an issue that could cause the player to disconnect from the game while waiting in a long queue for a Battleground.
