Running of the Gnomes gets official recognition in World of Warcraft as a micro-holiday called The Great Gnomeregan Race! In Patch 7.2.5, you can race from Dun Morogh to Booty Bay! The event is likely to debut sometime in October alongside the official event.

Overview

Join the Gnomes as they celebrate their unrelenting moxie! Race across the Eastern Kingdoms, from Gnomeregan down to Booty Bay!

What's Running of the Gnomes?

Players create Level 1 pink-haired Gnomes and race from Dun Morogh to Booty Bay with the goal to race money to fight breast cancer. You can find more information in a post we did about last year's run. Don't forget to follow WarcraftCares on Twitter for announcements related to this year's run!

Pretty awesome to see it introduced officially - it was always a really fun event, so I'm sure it will be in the future too!

      The secret finding Discord and Warcraft-secrets.com have been hard at work gathering pebbles in search of the elusive The Hivemind mount, but they've found something else instead. Baa'l, the battle pet was at the end of a 13 pebble long hunt with the small items hidden throughout BfA zones, and the seekers needed help from Uuna to defeat Baa'l in battle. This is the first secret uncovered in Battle for Azeroth since it went live, with a few others dug up during the beta, so big congrats to all you secret finders out there that contributed.
      Now, it seems likely that Baa'l is just the next step in the Hivemind puzzle, as he has some interesting things to say when summoned: “Souls fEast on enDless shrieKing, in darKNess they writhe and scream, yOu WiLl join thEm, toGether forEver morE!”
        

      You can check out the full details on this hunt and how to get your own Baa'l and perhaps even join the secret finding community over at Warcraft Secrets. Until more is known, good luck to all the secret seekers out there!

      Battle for Azeroth launched a week ago and we compiled a list of tips to get you started with week 2!
      Tips
      Focus on gearing up for Uldir and complete world quests to earn reputation with the new factions. All factions provide items at Honored/Revered/Exalted. Don't forget about Inscription contracts and check out our reputation guides for more information. Prioritize emissaries over random world quests. They reward 1,500 reputation each with the new factions. Check out the world map for quests that provide item upgrades and try to finish those first. Complete Mythic dungeons for ilvl 340+ loot. If your gear is not suitable for Mythic dungeons yet and you want to gear up fast, queue as a Tank/Healer for Normal/Heroic dungeons and you will only wait a few seconds and receive additional rewards: Additional Azerite and a War-Torn Satchel of Cooperation that contains ~900 Gold and Battle-Scarred Augment Runes. Heroic dungeons reward at least 1 piece of ilvl 325 loot per run.  If you wish to receive loot for a different spec, Loot Specialization can be adjusted by right-clicking on your portait. Champions of Azeroth Emissary

      The emissary is now available on NA servers and if you haven't completed any world quests for Champions yet, reaching Friendly reputation standing should be fairly easy. The reason why this is important is that Magni will upgrade your Heart of Azeroth by 15 item levels (Heart of Azeroth Item Level Increase) at various reputation stages with the faction. The Heart's Power becomes available at Friendly.
      Portals to Silithus are located in portal rooms of Boralus/Dazar'Alor. Check out our Champions of Azeroth guide for more details.

      Weekly Quests
      Azerite for the Alliance & Azerite for the Horde: Collect 10,000 Azerite from Island Expeditions to receive 2,500 Azerite and 1,500 reputation with Honorbound/7th Legion. Both factions are important if you want to finish the War Campaign and unlock Dark Iron Dwarves and Mag'har Orcs. Call to Arms: Stormsong Valley (A) & Call to Arms: Stormsong Valley (H): Slay 10 players and loot a War Supply Cache within Stormsong Valley to earn a Steel Strongbox, 250 Honor, and 75 reputation with Honorbound/7th Legion. The quest can be accepted in the new PvP zones with Dueler's Guild. Island Expeditions

      If you completed all three Islands last week, you can now start researching your third "Order Hall" tier after completing Island Expeditions on five different Islands:
      Island Plunderer Island Archaeologist The following Islands are on rotation this week:
      Rotting Mire Verdant Wilds Whispering Reef Mythic Dungeons
      Mythic dungeons are now reset. You can start clearing them again for a chance to loot items of ilvl 340 and various mounts.
      Gravity Lapse PvP Brawl

      Gravity getting you down? Step into the Eye of the Storm and be prepared for a whole new en-lighten-ing experience. Every minute, players on the battlefield will find themselves launched into the air, only to gently fall toward the ground again in a perpetual aerial ballet as they try to accrue enough resources to take the win home for their team.
      Not Available Yet
      World bosses, Mythic+ dungeons, Uldir, and Warfronts will be available on September 4. A bug discovered earlier this morning caused the epic world boss quest to appear on the world map. Blizzard confirmed that was not intended and fixed the issue.

      The Hivemind is a new secret mount added in Battle for Azeroth and the WoW Secret Finding Discord community is currently busy trying to solve the final steps of the puzzle. Join the hunt for the flying brain mount!
      Update: The hunt is on and the community discovered the first BfA secret pet Baa'ls Darksign! When summoned, Baa'l says: "Souls fEast on enDless shrieKing, in darKNess they writhe and scream, yOu WiLl join thEm, toGether forEver morE!” Another hint maybe?
      The Hivemind
      The mount shares the same model with Yogg-Saron's brain in Ulduar.

      We found two spells related to the mount and it appears that this is a multi-passenger mount and each player increases the mounted speed by 10%.
      The Hivemind - Transforms you into the Hivemind. Other members of your Hivemind may join with you. This is a flying mount. Joined Hivemind - Joins with the target, a member of your Hivemind, limited to the outdoors, following normal vehicle rules. Mod Mounted Speed Amount: +10% Increase Mounted Speed Stacks: +10% Check out the guide over at Warcraft Secrets for progress and more details!

      Good news, everyone! Senior Game Producer Michael Bybee confirmed at Gamescom that Sylvanas won't be following in the footsteps of Garrosh in Battle for Azeroth.
      Click here to read the full PCGamesN article!
      Blizzard finally addressed concerns voiced by Horde players that came into existence after the reveal of the Sylvanas animated short. If you're late to the game and haven't played War of Thorns, Sylvanas burned down Teldrassil and players were not particularly happy about that. Some even started harassing Christie Golden who didn't even write Warbringers.
      According to PCGamesN, Bybee said that it's all part of the story thread that they've had planned out for a long time. Possibly the most soothing fact is that the Horde Warchief won't receive the Garrosh treatment and there are definitely other plans in store for both factions.

      A bug after this week's reset caused world boss quests to appear on the map. Many players were confused and Blizzard clarified in a blue post that this was not intended as world bosses will begin to spawn starting the week of September 4.
      Players that logged in after maintenance saw the epic world quest A Chilling Encounter pop up on live realms.

      Unfortunately, no world bosses are supposed to spawn until Uldir opens, which left many players perplexed.

      Here's a post by Community Manager Ythisens about the bug.

      Are they supposed to be up or not? After reset is shows a world boss but it's not spawning.
      Hey guys! Just confirming that yes this is a bug and we're working on fixing it so it should no longer incorrectly be displaying just yet. Sorry for all of the confusion this morning!
