    Grab your tools and get ready to celebrate all things gnomish!


    Like clockwork, Tinkerfest is returning! Starting July 23, 2021, at midnight PDT and going until August 5, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. PDT, all players regardless of level can partake in the celebration of all things gnomish.

    There are four main centers for Tinkerfest: Gnomeland Security in Steamfont Mountains, Inventor's Outlook in Freeport, Inventor's Threshold in Qeynos, and Dropship Landing Zone in Moors of Ykesha. Gnomeland Security and Dropship Landing Zone have many Tinkerfest quest givers. The two city locations have extensive decorations in the zone, and a portal that will take players to Gnomeland Security or Dropship Landing Zone. In other starting cities (Neriak near the main entrance, Gorowyn near the base of the main lift, Kelethin near the bank, and New Halas near the dock) and in other gnomish areas (Bonemire at the Drednever camp, and Solusek's Eye near the entrance), small gnome celebration areas also have a Tinkerfest coordinator who explains the festival and a portal to Gnomeland Security. All areas with Tinkerfest NPCs have collectibles and harvestable cogs available as ground spawns for players to pick up. Event-specific public quests have been added to The Commonlands and Antonica.

    Loads of things are returning this year, as well. Achievements, tinkering recipe books sold by Tarly, Tinkerfest Merchant, in Gnomeland Security in Steamfont Mountains, collections, quests, and participating Aether races to name a few.

    Finally, and with much excitement, there are a ton of new Overseer quests as well as tradeskill and merchant items being added for 2021. You'll need a keen eye and a good pair of gloves to protect your hands from all the tinkering you'll be doing, but the list stretches from here to the moon!

    • Necromech Drone Box
      • When added to your inventory this Necromech Drone Box will give you one heirloom clockwork drone and one heirloom tinkered weapon!
        • Four of the drones are flavor pet spells; one drone is a familiar (rarer item). Any of the drones can be turned into house item plushies (but cannot be turned back).
        • The weapons are appearance only.

    Not seeing the mount on the merchant.. oversight, or doesn't exist?

    there are now 2 rhinos on Tarly.

    Even so , I must have missed that one last year , because there is no new mount on display in the house for new items on the Test server .
    Unless a new mount was added late , that is possible because simply changing the color on the rhino mount should not be to hard , but I am only guessing .

    I just went on to the Public Test server forum , and there seams to be no new mount , I was wrong about the rhino , there were already 2 of those last year .
    Kaitheel always tells us when one of the new items is a mount , and there was also no talk about one on the forum and none was on display in our new festival items house .

    According to Kaitheel there are NO new mounts this year .

    Doesn't exist, and thank you for catching this and letting me know. I've updated the post and article to reflect this year's information.

    Not that I need another mount. But I have sooo many shiny cogs. My ponies just couldn't help themselves, LOL.

    lol there are some really cool ones from last year , well all 6 flying mounts are wings , but there are 2 leapers and 2 ground mounts

    one of the leapers is painful the other is a nice modern jet back ( I wished it would fly )
    and the 2 Rhinos with the really unique tail ( just love that electrical plug .

    Yeah, the jetpacks should be flying mounts.
  14. Bludd Well-Known Member

    same with the asskicker leaper mount

  15. Cusashorn Well-Known Member


    Nah, that one actually makes sense to just be a leaper mount, despite the cartoon logic it works on.

  16. Bludd Well-Known Member

    yeah sure but i want it as an appearance mount for a flier
    continuous asskickings to stay aloft

    but they're not jetpacks.... they are jump-packs
  18. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    It's what it looks like that counts and the only reason I did not buy one is the name , because it made it clear , that this will not fly .

    Ha! One of my gnomes uses that painful one. But then he is a bruiser after all, LOL.

    On the rhino, I noticed you can use it as an appearance even when using a leaping mount, which I luv.

    yes I been doing that since I got it on Kaladim , Hartsmith .
    But now I can't use it anymore on my tinker toon if I want to fly .
    I also used the rino as an appearance on my ground mount with feather fall , so for a short distance it does look like it flies .

    Lol , Bludd . just thinking of that makes my posterity hurt .
