Path: Playable Races :: Gnomes
The eccentric, often-brilliant Gnomes are one of the most peculiar races of the world. With their obsession for developing radical new technologies and constructing marvels of mind-bending engineering, it's a wonder that any Gnomes have survived to proliferate.

Thriving within the wondrous techno-city of Gnomeregan, the Gnomes shared the resources of the forested Dun Morogh Peaks with their Dwarven cousins. Though the dwarves of Ironforge also have a propensity for technology and engineering - it is the gnomes who provide the critical, visionary designs for most of the Dwarves' weapons and steam vehicles.

The Gnomes served the Alliance well during the Second War, but strangely, they refused to send any personnel to aid their allies during the Burning Legion's recent invasion. Though their designs helped turn the tide against the Legion, the Dwarves and Humans were shocked by the Gnomes' decision to withhold their courageous troops and pilots.

When the war ended, the Alliance discovered the reason for the Gnomes' sudden withdrawal. Apparently, an ancient, barbaric menace had risen from the bowels of the earth and invaded Gnomeregan. Knowing that their allies' priority was defeating the Burning Legion, the Gnomes decided to make their stand alone. Though they fought valiantly to save their beloved city, Gnomeregan was irrevocably lost.

Nearly half of the Gnomish race was wiped out during the fall of Gnomeregan. The ragged Gnomes that survived fled to the safety of the Dwarves' stronghold of Ironforge. Committed once again to the Alliance's cause, the Gnomes spend their time devising strategies and weapons that will help them retake their ravaged city and build a brighter future for their people.

One of my favorite races. Small in stature, but very courageous and passionate about their endeavors, and almost impossible to click in battlegrounds.

If I had one wish that Blizzard would make true, I'd wish they removed Gnome Race from the game, permanently.

They have a low tolerance for alcohol and are more fun to toss than dwarfs because they go further. 100 points for running over one with your Kodo.

Really a boring race, all of their quests are run on throwaway jokes.

Small is beautiful they say... Obviously they never played WoW.

Nothing satisfies me more when a gnome completely owns some Hordies in PvP.

Look like chibis and have slightly disturbing animations. Male speaking voice is very obnoxious. While the female speaking voice is decent, the laugh is irritating.
