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.

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.

      From the "this took a whole lot of time and effort to make" files, here comes Light's Champions 2, a movie length WoW machinima featuring the fight against the Burning Legion. While it does have a 2 in the title, you don't need to have watched the first one, as it's a standalone story with characters from the original. Cstyle12 took two years on this project and it shows, with custom animations for all the characters using Cinema4D, After Effects and Premiere Pro.
      Here's the trailer in case you're not prepared (© Illidan, 2007) to go straight into the almost 1 and a half hour long movie:
      And here's the actual machinima itself:
      While reddit is busy with the tragedy that is the video's duration (only 3 seconds away from being 1H23min45Secs, aka 12345), you can also check out the first Light's Champions machinima:
      In any case, huge congratulations to Cstyle on seeing this thing through and all the dedication and effort put into it, it really shows what someone can do with enough passion for a project. We really need more like you in the WoW community!

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.
