Watch the holo-table in front of High Tinker Mekkatorque to learn about Operation: Gnomeregan.

  • Learn about Operation Gnomeregan


The dwarves of Ironforge kindly took us in when the trogg invasion and radiation forced us to leave Gnomeregan for the first time. But even the kindness of friends can't quell the longing for home.

I sent out a call for brave gnomes and other members of the Alliance to help us regain control of Gnomeregan and defeat the usurper Thermaplugg once and for all.

We weren't able to achieve everything Operation: Gnomeregan set out to do, but Thermaplugg is on the run and we're closer to home than ever.


Thermaplugg's defeat is a certainty, but that Irradiator has bought him time to regroup.


Even now, only the S.A.F.E. teams dare to venture far into the city to search for survivors. Meanwhile, Thermaplugg has sent one of his followers, Crushcog, to distract us and buy some time for him to dig in.

Accept the quest and the holo-table activates, recalling the events inside the Train Depot:

High Tinker Mekkaorque says: We assembled a mighty force and defeated Thermaplugg's servants, fighting our way into the city. But, the usurper Thermaplugg has one last trick up his sleeve...
Image of High Tinker Mekkatorque says: It's too quiet, where are Thermaplugg's defense forces?
Mekgineer Thermaplugg's Brag-Bot says: No! No, no, NO!!! I won't allow you to into my kingdom, usurper! I WON'T ALLOW IT!
Mekgineer Thermaplugg's Brag-Bot says: Activate the Ultimate Atomic Protection System.
Mekgineer Thermaplugg's Brag-Bot says: ...DISINTEGRATE THEM ALL!
Image of High Tinker Mekkatorque says: IT'S A TRAP! That's a fully functional irradiator!
Irradiator 3000 says: Irradiator 3000 activated. Attention. Emergency. You now have ten minutes to reach minimum safe distance.
Image of High Tinker Mekkatorque says: Ten minutes? Plenty of time to disarm the device.
Image of High Tinker Mekkatorque says: Hinkles, hand me that [Whirring Bronze Gizmo] and some [Fresh Spring Water]. Cogspin, toss me that [Dirty Trogg Cloth] and a [Handful of Copper Bolts]...
Mekgineer Thermaplugg's Brag-Bot says: TEN MINUTES?! You left the factory setting on? Give me that controller, you idiot!
Irradiator 3000 says: *BEEP* Attention. Emergency. You now have ten seconds to reach minimum safe distance.
Image of High Tinker Mekkatorque says: Whuh-oh! Lapforge, beam us back, quickly!
High Tinker Mekkatorque says: We were forced to retreat. Thermaplugg continues to hide behind the radiation, sending his crony, Crushcog, to harass us here on the surface.
