9.24.17 - Gnomes are officially ready for Paladins! Lets go devs!

9.19.17 - It was a much smaller crew this year than in years past but Forb's mog was still on point! The rest of ye scurvy bilge rats can walk the plank!

7.03.17 - And now that Tomb of Sargeras is open, Gnomes have declared open season on the new bosses. In our first assault we killed five of the nine bosses! So if youve got the gear and a taste for adventure, contact Zoreli and tell him: "Put me in coach!" =)

7.03.17 - Under the capable command of our PvE officer Zoreli, our runty raiders have left their tiny bootprints on the behinds of every raid boss Blizzard has put before us! We cleared Emerald Nightmare on Normal, and even killed a couple Heroic bosses. We've also punted every boss in the Nighthold numerous times!

7.03.17 - To those who might be checking this page and thinking <Gnomeregan Forever> has died, sorry to disappoint. Alas my personal near death experience has left me with less time for a lot of things including updating this news page. But G4 keeps on rockin!

12.24.16 - This year has been challenging for all of us, but G4 keeps thriving thanks to Gnomes like you digging deep and doing amazing things! So I hope you all get a few moments respite from the hustle and bustle to enjoy the warmth of the season, and to reflect upon all your accomplishments before 2017 arrives and we start to do it all again! Happy Holidays everygnome!

08.09.16 - Battle Stations! At long last the Burning Legion has made its move and now its our turn. Team up with your fellow Gnomes, its dangerous out there! But dont let that stop you. The Demon Invasions drop sweet ilvl 700 raid quality gear! So get out there and gear up, and join us as we assault the Hellfire Citadel on Sunday! For Gnomeregan!!

07.29.16 - As many of you know, there are two impressive Hunter P.E.T.S. in Siege of Orgrimmar. And since Hunters are the hot new class for Gnomes, we will be setting up shop there. Specifically a PET SHOP. We will be running Siege of Orgrimmar during Retro Raid Night for a while to help our Hunters get these impressive Tames. I'd also be open to running more than one night per week to speed up the process if we have enough volunteers with alts. If youre a Hunter who needs these pets make sure youre there on Friday! And if youve already got yours, help your guildies get theirs. Plus dont forget there is still LOADS of cool Transmog gear to be collected in there, and a Mount even if you arent a Hunter!

07.23.16 - It was a balmy day on Winky's Isle, and perfect just laying around. But when G4 plans a party, there is no holding back! It was Gnomeregan Forever's End of Summer/End of Warlords bash. There was music and dancing, and lots of food and drink, and of course a few fireworks. There were also of course LOTS of Gnomes, including some who later became members! If you missed it, you missed a good one!

02.07.16 - Roving Gnome Pepe here with late breaking news from Hellfire Citadel. Another orc bit the dust tonight as the forces of Gnomeregan Forever gave Gorefiend and his soul sucking Belly of Death a fatal case of indigestion! Gul'Dan's minions never knew what hit them, except that it was short! Join me and the rest of the team next week as we head upstairs and attempt to serve those orcs another heaping helping of humble pie. For GNOMEREGAN!!

01.30.16 - G4 has a new Roving Reporter! When Pepe is around, make sure to say CHEESE! =)

"Hiya Gnomies, Pépé here to serve you all things G4. It is my mission to provide you all with visual updates of upcoming events, along with the ones you may have missed. For now, head over to the "G4 Rocks" gallery, drop a like or comment on some of the recent photos and let me know what you think. That's all from me for now, so let's keep this party goin' and show the world what G4 has to offer!"

01.24.16 - Fourteen Gnomes on a dead Orc's chest! Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of fizzy energy drink! Killrogg Deadeye lived up to his name last night, except now ALL of him is dead at the hands of G4's runty raiders! A complicated fight to be sure but one I knew we were capable of. Well done everygnomie! Work on your gear and study the fight because next week the pitter patter of tiny feet comes for Gorefiend! FOR GNOMEREGAN!!

12.18.15 - Star Warriors come in all sizes. May The Short be With You!

11-1-15 - I'm a little late posting this one, but I HOPE you all paid your respects to the cheerful gnome spirits in the Ironforge cemetary, and picked up your Macabre Marionette pets before they disappeared for another year!

Not only are these delightful dancing skeletons wonderful vanity pets but they are also very useful additions to your Battle Pet teams! For those who dont collect, they also go for quite a lot of gold compared to how easy they are to get. And its likely that price will only rise as supplies dwindle now that the holiday is over.

10.30.15 - When Deep Forest hosted a Hallows End party this Friday, REAL Gnomes answered the call, though many were in costume. There were loads of Gnomes there, and not all from G4. So many great costumes, and games. A lot of fun was had by all. Grats to Tyrman of G4 for winning the prize for the Cutest Costume! If youd like to see more screenshots from the party check THIS thread on the forums!

10.25.15 - In this case no news isnt good news. A number of our runty raiders have been absent the last few weeks and we're struggling a bit to muster the firepower we need to down these brutal Hellfire Citadel bosses, or even Heroic Throne of Thunder bosses.

Dont let those End-of-Expac Blues get YOU down! Get back in the fight soldier! Work on your gear, and join your Gnomerades in arms as we make our historic assault upon Hellfire Citadel! Archimond will taste defeat at the hands of an all-Gnome raid team and you'll want to be there!

10.24.15 - A number of G4's members took part in the annual "Running of the Gnomes" event on Scarlet Crusade realm. The event seeks to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer. Thousands of pink haired tabarded Gnomes invaded the realm. The good news: We only crashed the world server ONCE =) This was Forbs' second year running.

The event was a joyus, chaotic success with over three thousand dollars raised for a good cause and much fun had by all. If you'd like to see more screenshots and videos of the event, check out the Gnome Run Thread in the forums!

10.23.15 - REMINDER: Friday Nights are Retro Raid Night! Lately we have been focusing on picking up missing Mists of Pandaria Raid Achievements for the guild. A couple of weeks ago we downed the Sha of Fear on Heroic Difficulty and unlocked the Thundering Jade Cloud Serpent flying mount for our members! So dont forget to add this handsome mount to your collection.

In preparation for taking down the Thunder King on Heroic difficulty we have been getting that difficulty unlocked for a bunch of our members. Along the way we saw LOADS of cool mog gear dropping that I had personally never laid eyes on before. Come get your share! Heroic Throne of Thunder is no cakewalk either let me assure you. So I'd like to see a BIG turnout of our lvl 90+ Gnomes this coming Friday (especially Healers, we had NONE the last two weeks) to help G4 get this important Achieve!

10.20.15 - Hallows End is nearly done, so dont miss out on all the fun! Ok enough rhyming. Dont miss your chance to snag these limited Hallow End Toys and Pets before they turn into pumpkins! There are two Ghost Kitties from last year you can buy for Tricky Treats if you didnt get them. New for this year is the Coin of Many Faces toy! It will turn you into one of HUNDREDS of possible Follower models! Never the same one twice! And they last for an hour and persist thru death and combat. Get YOURS by slaying the lvl 100 Holiday mobs in south Shadowmoon. I got mine in about 20 mins.

Also use Spooky Supplies to purchase the Creepy Crawlers Garrison decoration package! As part of the package, Arachnis a giant spectral spider will haunt your base. You can loot him once per day on all your toons for a chance to get a Sack of Spectral Spiders toy for your collection! Also your base will be overrun with Ghostly Maggots, Spiders, and Rats! These are all CAPTURABLE as new Battle Pets! Be sure to add them to your menagerie before Hallows ENDS!

10.18.15 - After a several week hiatus, Gnomeregan Forever returned to Hellfire Citadel, intent on taking the fight to Gul'dan's goons. Though missing several regulars, the tiny titans of G4 leveraged new gear, and a few legendary rings to make short work indeed of everything that stood in their path. It was a textbook demonstration of demolition as Kazzak, Assault, Iron Reaver and Kormrok were all one-shot by our purple people punchers!

I'd like to see G4 down Archimonde before the next expansion launches. Killing the expansion ending boss while he's still current content would be a first for us. To accomplish this we need more Gnomes to join the fight! Grab your gear and lets kick some rears! Sunday nights 5PM sharp!

10.17.15 - Murloc pets used to be rare, reserved for the few who managed to get tickets (real or virtual) to Blizzcon, or foreign sales promotions. But now Blizzard has hidden an adorable Murloc pet in the game that everygnomie can get!

The pet is well hidden in a sea cave in Borean Tundra. But fear not intrepid Gnomes for your GL has a guide to help you get it. Check out this forum post for all the details!

09.27.15 - Five years is a long time for one guild to hold together. When I founded G4 back in Wrath, I couldnt have known, and wouldnt have dared to dream this guild would accomplish half of what it has. Your accomplishments are known far beyond the borders of your home realm G4. You can and should take pride in that.

Bilbo's grand party featured fireworks and dragons and lots of friends and well-wishers. Ours was no different. It marked the end of the older hobbit's story, and the beginning of Frodo's. There are few of us Gnomes left now who remember the early days of G4. But over time our ranks have been bolstered by other great Gnomes. Will this new generation of heroes continue to rise to the challenge, eclipsing even the epic deeds of their predecessors? Will they write large their names upon the history of their illustrious guild?

Time will tell.

09.27.15 - Wyrmrest Accord is well known for the creativity of its community, and that creativity was on display in our Forums contest! That's right, G4's anniversary celebrations aren't all duels and explosions and things that go SPLAT in the night. We have our creative side too. When I think back on G4's five year history, what stands out to me are the friendships we all made. So this year's forum contest theme was "Friends."

The winners were all Alliance side this year. 3rd place was awarded to Dunnedin, whose story of friendship under fire (literally!) reflected the theme admirably. 2nd Place went to Cedarmoone for her whimsically edited screenshot showing that time spent with imaginary friends can be just as rewarding as real ones. Our 1st place winner was Ritze whose poem captured the essence of the Death Knight experience, and how they stand by their friends, in life AND in death.

09.27.15 - It was a Pet Battle Royale last night in Dalaran folks as Wyrmrest Accord's seven best Trainers stepped into the ring and slugged it out for money, prizes and fame!Both Lardun (the only Horde Champion to show up) and Zunde advanced through their early matches easily, while Tyramand had the misfortune to draw Zunde as his first opponent. This forced the plucky Gnome into a series of exciting do-or-die elimination matches.

Meanwhile Lardun and Zunde squared off in match #7 in a battle of the undefeated. Zunde came out on top. Then the highlight fight of the night came as Tyramand who had fought his way through the loser's bracket met Lardun of the Horde. In the end it was Tyramand who managed to roar back and snatch 2nd Place from the jaws of defeat. Easily our best Pet Tournament ever!

09.25.15 - The air may have been thin but the prize pool certainly wasn't, and neither was the pool of contestants. Once again Gnome Darts proved to be one of our most popular events. We also nearly had a repeat of last year where if you recall Gnomes took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Actually technically we DID, but Vasokos from Moonguard while having a 3rd place caliber score was nevertheless ineligible to receive prizes due to his off-realm status, and so Ritze officially took 3rd. Milladee a fixture at G4 events showed everyone how the game was played with three consecutive sub-7 yard jumps for an easy 1st place score. Mazzakazam took 2nd place, while Kawaiicaelix had the closest jump at 3 yards but failed to finish in the money. Thanks to Mitten for coordinating the event, as well as Muletia and his magic addon. Also big thanks to everygnome who came out to help!

09.24.15 - Great turnout, great Mogs, great event! G4's Fifth Anniversary celebration kicked off in grand style at the Argent Tournament grounds with a "Legion" themed transmog contest and fashion show. As spectators lined the runway, Fashionistas from both the Alliance and the Horde strutted their best stuff. Congrats to our winners: Zogdor (Horde), Aluciena (Alliance), and Junhong (Alliance) for taking home the prizes. Special Thanks to our Guest Judge: Gravelshot for his X-mog expertise! Event coordinators Rusteah and Pippannelle did a fantastic job, and big thanks to everygnome (short and tall) who helped make this event one to remember!
Forbs / Nov 10, 2012

09.05.14 - It always seems that the more Gnomes there are around the luckier we get. We call it: The Gnome Rule. That certainly seemed to be the case when someone said "Lets do Malygos!" this Friday during Retro Raid Night. After handing the big lizard his short setback, Muletia got the lucky roll on the very rare, and very enviable Azure Drake mount! So when you see Gnomes heading off somewhere, tag along! You never know. You just might get lucky too!

08.31.14 - Ready to unwind and flex your creative muscles a bit? Well Tima has been hosting a series of RP adventures on Sunday evenings that's right up your character sheet! Each week a new location is chosen and we get together to explore not just the landscape but our character's personalities in an environment that is a little more interesting than the Blue Recluse. If youre ready for some adventure on the IC's, log in Sunday nights!

08.31.14 - We've been struggling for a few weeks, but we finally got the right people online at the same time, and G4 cleared the first wing of Siege of Orgrimmar Flex difficulty in convincing style! We one-shot all the bosses...ok we might have wiped once or twice on Nourshen, but thats a HARD fight! Our Tanks were on the ball, and our Healers were erasing booboo's faster than the bosses could dish em out, and our DPS just crushed it, allowing us to get past Nourshen's enrage timer for the first time in ages!

Wing Two next week! Upgrade your gear, study the fights on youtube, and practice in LFR! Lets kick down Garry's front door for the glory of Gnomeregan!

G4 would like to dedicate this week's raid victories to Chris Robinson, Tyson Murphy, and the rest of the Blizzard character art team for their hard work making Gnomes look their best!

08.08.14 - Just an ordinary Retro-Raid Night...but watch out! That was no ordinary Retro-Raid Night! The G-Team decided to go for something a little more ambitious this week, and set their sights on the Ulduar 25-Gnome Hard Mode achieves. Everyone was on their game and executed strategy perfectly, and when the ancient dust had cleared, the group had one-shot every one of the Hard Modes perfectly! You get a Proto-Drake! And you get a Proto-Drake! Everyone got a huge and handsome Ironbound Proto-Drake mount for their efforts! Interested in adding a new ride to your stable? Then you should put Retro-Ride Night on YOUR calendar!

08.07.14 - One by one, then two by three the dinky dino hunters gathered, and before long we needed to convert to raid. Over the course of the next couple of hours everyone bagged their limit of big game, and that wasnt all. At least two mounts and a number of rare pets were claimed too! Just another Thursday evening in G4. Skip logging in, and you could miss something BIG!

06.23.14 - Is a lack of Lore holding you back from joining in the Roleplay around you? Embarassed by your character's well...lack of character?? Wish you had mad RP skillz to match your deeps? Well worry no more! Because Tima has started a series of weekly Roleplaying workshops designed to help get you RP'ing with the best of them!

Discussions range from the best Roleplaying addons, to how to create a backstory for your character, to Gnome culture and history, and much more! So watch your in-game calendar and join us for the next class. We guarantee your RP experience will improve 150% or your money back!

06.16.14 - It wasnt quite business as normal when G4's plucky progression Gnomes stepped into the Vale of Eternal Sorrow for the weekly Flex run. The team decided to step it up and take a shot at Normal. After a bit of a false start, the team got down to business and quickly undercut Immersius with minimal losses for G4's first SoO 10-Gnome Normal victory!

The Fallen Guardians were next on G4's road to success, although not without a fight. But finally after several attempts, they hung up the 'Out of Business' sign, and we got our second Normal victory in SoO! Sadly Nourshen proved to be stiff competition and refused to go down. Next time time.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in this memorable mission! And if you'd like to see just how much fun Gnome raiding can be, get your gear up to scratch, sign up on the calendar, and maybe we'll see you in Forb's 500!

06.14.14 - Its Summertime, and the Gnoming is easy! Aww yeah...a tropical island, a convention of Gnomes, and a beach party. It doesnt get much better than that. This Saturday Cilantro and Parsnipp hosted quite the get together, and never ones to pass up a chance for fun, G4 members hit the beach in style.

There was plenty to drink of course, and a fishing derby, and barbeque, and a fireworks show! Everygnome went home exhausted but content. Thanks Cil! We cant wait for the next one!

Gnomes are often overlooked by the Tall Folk, but even they sat up and took notice as Gnomeregan Forever racked up yet another in a long series of achievements on Saturday! We set out to conquer Deathwing the Destroyer on Heroic difficulty. And while spine did present a bit of a challenge, we eventually carried the day. In the process we not only received the title "Savior of Azeroth" for ourselves, but we racked up our 128th guild Dungeon/Raid achievement - Heroic: Dragon Soul Guild Run. Much to our surprise, this turned out to be our 2000th guild achievement point!! Thats quite an achievement in anyone's book, and not surprisingly Blizzard tacked another one on: Now That's An Achievement!

So the next time someone accuses you of being short, you can tell 'em "Yeah, almost as short as YOUR guild's achievement bar!" Keep it up Gnomes! Show 'em all what Gnomes can accomplish!

02.21.14 - Actually the stunted storm chasers of Gnomeregan Forever didnt so much walk on air this Saturday...we stomped on it! It looked like Guster's Last Stand, as we took on Al’Akir at his worst and simply blew him away. In the process, G4 garnered the Heroic Al’Akir Guild Run achievement and several of our members were awarded the Defender of a Shattered World title.

Afterwards, we enjoyed ourselves by exploring around his palace. Who knew an elemental lord would be such a great interior decorator? A hearty well done to all who participated!

Now on to Ogrimmar! We have defeated dragons, titans, and elemental lords. How tough can a few orcs be?

For Gnomeregan!

01.07.14 - Gnomes may be short, but we're also persistent, and Jinkelie demonstrated by finally completing the Shadowmourne quest chain. It took a LOT of trips to Icecrown Citadel to get all the pieces and complete all the quests. But as a result, not only has Jinkie added a shiny new Legendary Axe to her collection, but picked up the Shadowmourne achievement for herself, but racked up our 126th guild raid achievement: Shadowmourne - Guild Edition! This brings the guild one step closer another big achievement. We are lacking only: Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings, and Fangs of the Father to complete G4's Ultimate Collection achieve! So join us on our trips to Ulduar, and Dragon Soul, and be a part of this legendary undertaking! For Gnomeregan!

01.04.14 - We've been talking about it, and threatening to return to Siege of Orgrimmar Flex for a long time. This week we finally did it. On our first foray into SoO the first week it opened, we got out tiny heinies handed to us. After that we pulled in our horns and focused on finishing Mogu'Shan Vaults. After cutting that pesky Elegon and Will of the Emperor down to size, we entered Siege Flex with a renewed sense of confidence and purpose. As a result the outcome this time was much different! We one-shot the first two bosses, and made some valiant attempts on the third. So if youve got the gear and a thirst to prove yourself, join us Saturday nights as G4 takes the fight to Orgrimmar! We're coming for you Garrosh!!

12.21.14 - Twas the Wednesday before xmas and all through the dungeon bad things were stirring, and they werent the mouses! In a fit of holiday high spirits, Gnomeregan Forever paid a heroic visit to our old friend Nefarion in his new digs: Blackwing Descent. And while we didnt hang any decorations. we certainly left many dragon carcasses strewn festively about the place. And holy achievement spam batgnome! Nefarion was heard to exclaim as we hearthed out of sight: "Merry Xmas to all...except for GNOMES, now GOOD NIGHT!"

12.14.13 - They say you cant make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. So our shrimpy sous chef's decided to test that theory in Heroic Bastion of Twilight by taking on Sinestra. G4 hadnt been able to take the heat in her kitchen the last time we were there, but this time we kicked it up a notch and BAM she got served! Grats to everyone on the achieve: Heroic Sinestra Guild Run

12.07.13 - It was a long time coming, but finally after months of attempts it all came together in a perfect performance against our nemesis: Elegon, and G4's dinky dragon slayers walked away with a sweet victory they will remember for a long time. With the hardest boss in Mogu'SHan Vaults dead at their feet, the team was eager to try their tiny hands at the final encounter: "Will of the Emperor". As Forbs aptly put it "I smell blood in the water." With only time for two attempts, it wasnt looking good after the first wipe. But the team made the necessary adjustments and simply dismantled the Mogu constructs to earn Gnomeregan Forever the Mogu'shan Vaults Guild Run Achievement, and our first EVER full clear of a raid in the same expansion it was released! Well done Gnomes!

11.23.13 - After the weekly guild meeting, ten Gnomes brave and true ventured into the mysterious Mogu'Shan Vaults. We decided to do a fresh run for the challenge, and in no way because we forgot to extend the lockout. *Whistles Innocently*. It turned out to be a blast! It took us a couple tries to find our rhythm on the Stone Guardians, but when time was up we had blasted our way through four bosses and were staring down our arch-nemesis Elegon. We'll be back for him next week. Remember if you would like to test your mettle against the biggest bad guys on the block, then gear up, and sign up for Saturday Raid Night!

11.22.13 - Another Friday night and another Retro Raid! Since all lvl 90's showed up, we decided to try something a little more challenging: Dragon Soul 10-Gnome Normal! However with nearly everyone in the raid rocking Timeless Isle and LFR gear, it was more like Dragon Stroll. We waltzed through the raid, ignoring mechanics and dropping bosses like...well like a boss! Next time we'll definitely bump up the difficult level. So if youd like to join the fun, make sure you log on Friday evenings for Retro Raid Night!

10.09.13 - Whats it take to draw crowds of players away from the fabled treasures of the Timeless Isle? Perhaps a little moondust and loot! The Darkmoon Faire is in town and something wild is happening on the Isle! Moonfang the Den Mother and her pack have taken up residence just northwest of the faire proper. Once per hour they will spawn. If youre strong enough to brave her fangs and claws, youre in for some treats including: Moon-Moon a delightful little wolf pup who will dance with you! Other loot includes the Shimmering Moonstone allowing you to summon a temporary wolf mount, a wolf hat and other goodies! There is no minimum level required. If you can do some damage to a 92 Elite with 174 million health, then you'll be able to loot the corpse. Beware though, when she calls her packmates, even lvl 90's have good reason to fear! Moonfang is Free Tag like the bosses on the Timeless Isle, and can be looted multiple times per day. Remember the faire is only in town for a few more days, so go take a walk on the wild side, and good hunting!

09.16.13 - Through the careless graces of the gods of RNG I have come into possession of a supernumerary Hearthstone Closed Beta Key! Since I cannot decide which of you nifty Gnomes deserves it more, I'm going to let YOU show me who wants it more! Head over to the Beta Key Giveaway Thread on the forums for details, and good luck!

09.08.13 - The fur really flew during the fourth and final day of Gnomeregan Forever's Four Days of G4! The first ever cross-faction Pet Battle Tournament on Wyrmrest Accord featured six of the toughest trainers the realm had to offer competing for over ten thousand in gold, rare pets, and bragging rights. The battles were intense as both Horde and Alliance trainers pulled out their strongest pets and changed up their strategies as they strove to keep their opponents off guard and advance to the next round. In the end though Horde champions Gohar and Drakile took third and second place respectively. The winning trophy however went to alliance Trainer: Tezzim who took first place and walked away with 5000 gold and a code for the Soul of the Aspects pet! Well done Tezzim!

09.07.13 - Whoosh!! Almost a year and a half in the making, Gnomeregan Forever's long awaited Fireworks spectacular didnt disappoint. Though we didnt have quite the crowd we were hoping for, the ones who did come were in for a real treat. Sixteen launchers, and over ten thoursand Large Cluster Rockets lit up the Vale sky for over foirty five minutes! A pity no one was able to capture it on video, because it was truly one for the record books! Not only did we celebrate G4's birthday in style, but we sent Patch 5.3 out with a bang, and toasted the Vale before its untimely destruction.

09.06.13 - After a thrilling Gnome Darts competition there's only one place to go to blow off some steam and that's Club Gnome in Gadgetzan! Er...I mean Club Trix. But one might easily have made such a mistake if they were there and saw how many Gnomes were in attendance this week! G4 members were very visible, and contributed to the festive atmosphere with spectacular laser light shows, fireworks, and loads of spell effects and toys! As Gnomes danced the night away, there were shoutouts from the DJ's and many club goers both Alliance and Horde alike wishing Gnomeregan Forever a happy birthday! Grats to Tridyna who organized this event as part of Gnomeregan Forever's Four Days of G4, and special thanks to everyone who came down and showed the Tall Folk how to party like a Gnome star!

09.06.13 - It was raining Tallies! At least it seemed that way from ground zero. As part of Gnomeregan Forever's Third Annual Four Days of G4, a fierce Gnome Darts Competition was held atop the Temple of Storms. About a dozen contestants took turns flinging themselves off the pinnacle, attempting to crash land on a distant target! The competition was fierce. Kaehlen racked up a new world record jump, landing a mere TWO Gnome paces from the bullseye! It still wasnt quite enough to win however, as Parinke edged her out in the cumulative scoring to take first place! Gnomeregan Forever handed out ten thousand gold and other prizes to the top three finishers! Congratulations and thanks to Tridyna who coordinated the event, and to all the Gnomes who helped make it a splattering success!!

09.05.13 - The pen may be mightier than the sword, but dont put away your iron just yet. Nevertheless as part of Gnomeregan's Third Annual Four Days of G4, we hosted a writing contest on the Wyrmrest Accord forums! This year's theme was: "Short Sighted". As always, determining winners was difficult. But in the end it was decided that Fundead edged out the competition with his amusing story about the futility of trying to beat a Dwarf at the one thing Dwarves do best. Second place went to Bugsië for his imaginative tale of an anachronistic businessgnome attempting to make a profit in the Azeroth of the future! In all Gnomeregan Forever handed out ten thousand gold and pets in prizes! Congratulations to all of our winners! If you havent read the winning stories yet, you can do so HERE!

08.23.13 - Its summertime, and while it may be hot outside, the Gnomes of G4 are turning up the heat in WoW as well! Friday night was no exception. A gang of us assembled for Retro Raid Night, and lit a fire under the minions of Ragnaros in the Firelands! And when the smoke cleared, Stormspout (aka Xiaolong) walked away with the Smoldering Egg of Millagazor! An impressive Fire Hawk mount of pure flame! So if you havent joined us for our weekly Retro Raid Night lately, you never know what you might be missing!

08.07.13 - I am very pleased, and hope that you all will join me in congratulating Doodle Gnome (whom you may know as Sarabibilum). She has been immortalized in World of Warcraft with an in-game item named after her character Paululum. This new item will be implemented in the upcoming Patch 5.4! Paululum gained the attention of Blizzard back in June when she illustrated a now legendary thread about the implausible offspring of CM Zarhym, and Lead Systems Designer Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street. You can learn about the thread here in case you havent seen it. You can also find more of Doodle Gnome's wonderful doodles here. And last but not least dont forget to check out her new website: Kibble & Bit! Three cheers for an awesome Gnome getting the recognition she deserves! Keep up the good work DG!

06.23.13 - Gnomeregan Forever continued its assault upon the ancient foundations of Mogu power and current raid content as once again Gnomes invaded Mogushan Vaults 10-Gnome Normal to face Gar'jal the Spiritbinder! A mighty tall troll he was too! He threw every voodoo doll and hex he had at us! But in the end it was the Gnomes who were standing tall. "What a shame for a Zandalari priest ta endure!" RIP Gara'jal! Next week we have the Spirit Kings squarely in our tiny sights. Work on your gear! Study the videos, and sign up for raids! Help make Gnomish history!

06.01.13 - The Mogu may have hid their treasures away in Mogushan Vaults, but that didnt stop our tiny team of safe crackers. The Gnomes of G4 were determined to tackle current content for the first time. Some didnt think we could do it, and thought we'd end up as collateral damage. But we showed them those bosses werent too big to fail. We dropped them like interest rates on a sub-prime loan! Congratulations Gnomes! We're still not done with MSV 10-Gnome Normal though. Still four bosses left that would like nothing more than to compound our interest. Think we can do it?? Bank on it!

05.07.13 - The Amani tribe suffered a grizzly defeat, and more than a few booboos when Gnomes came to Zul-Aman to rob their pic-a-nic™ baskets this Tuesday! The fur really flew as they ran the dungeon for time, and in addition to getting the Bear-ly Made It Achievement among others, one lucky Gnome rode away on a mount that definitely looked smarter than the average bear! So if this sounds like fun to you, make a point of logging in! Because if you miss a night, you could miss a LOT!

05.04.13 - Look! Up in the sky! Its a bird! Its a dragon! Its a...Gnome?? Kalecgos and the rest of the Blue Dragonflight invaded Stormwind airspace to make an important announcement! With a little help from his friends in Gnomeregan Forever, our own Gloomspanner acquired the last smouldering essences, and heart of Ragnaros he needed to complete his legendary staff quest! As a reward for this momentous achievement, he not only received the legendary staff Tarecgosa's Rest with the ability to transform himself into a dragon, but a giant translucent likeness of him hovered over Stormwind for a couple of hours so that all could witness the superiority of Gnomes! So I hope you will all join with me in congratulating Gloomspanner on this impressive feat! Also as a result of his dedication, you can add the Lil' Tarecgosa pet to your collections! So be sure to visit your guild vendor and pick one up if you havent already! So many Legendary Gnomes in G4 already. Will you be next??

05.03.13 - Its been a long time since we last visited Icecrown Citadel and cut short the reign of the lich king, But on Friday during our weekly Retro Raid Night we did just that. This time in 25-Gnome Normal mode. We not only had fun and many many achievements were won, but we started amassing pieces for the Legendary weapon to add to our already impressive collection! So whether you want to pick up some old achieves you never got, or add a Legendary to your collection, or just visit some old friends and cut them down to size, you should join us every week on Retro Raid Night! You never know what we'll be doing, but its sure to be fun!

04.28.13 - It was a lazy Sunday afternoon, just right for a siesta in the ole hammock. But some Gnomes just dont know when to quit, and Kipfirelord seems to be one of them! While everyone else was taking it slow, he swooped down to Booty Bay and stole the First Prize from some of the best fishermen on Azeroth in the weekly derby! In addition to the Master Angler of Azeroth achievement, he also picked up a nice Heirloom Ring! So next time youre lazing around on a Sunday afternoon, grab your pole and hustle down to Booty Bay, you just might get lucky!

03.10.13 - March wasnt the only thing that came in like a lion last week! Patch 5.2: The Thunder King hit the realm like a prehistoric garbage truck! Not only bringing with it new content, but balance changes to every class, and changes to the game, some popular, and some not. It even rendered the realm unplayable for hours! If you havent read the patch notes yet, I recommend you do so. What you dont know could hurt...a LOT!

Last night the Gnomes of G4 launched a scientific expedition to the Isle of Giants! There we explored the island and battled mighty dinosaurs, Zandalari Dinomancers and Horde NPC's. We even picked up quite a few new battle pets! We'll definitely have to schedule a return visit!

02.16.13 - Holy 'Chieve spam Batgnome! Gnomeregan Forever has been continuing to rack up an impressive number of guild achievements. So many in fact that Guildox currently ranks us as the 26th highest ranking guild on Wyrmrest Accord based on Achievement Points. So I'd like to congratulate and thank all of you for your tireless efforts on behalf of the guild! How high might we climb? Well that kinda depends on you. How hard are you willing to work to get there?

02.08.13 - Oh BOI! Friday night we invited a few of our friends in <The Brotherhood of Iron> (TBoI) to join us on Retro Raid Night as we took on Naxxramas 25-Gnome. A great many achievements were had, as well as a lot of fun! G4 has been friends with the stalwart Dwarves of TBoI for our entire history. These kin of the earth can hold their own in RP, PvE and PvP, so keep them in mind when youre looking to fill groups. And when you see one of their members, be sure to fire off a snappy salute to our (slightly) taller comrades in arms!

02.03.13 - It was just a typical guild meeting, or so it seemed. But Forbs had a couple of tricks up her purple sleeve. In honor of Lunar Festival, she led us to the watery lair of the giant two headed dog of legend: Omen! Buffed to level 90, he had a bone to pick with us! The fight was a little RUFF! But armed with rolled up copies of the Sunday Times G4 showed him how to Roll Over and Play Dead! Just goes to show that Gnomes can teach an old dog new tricks! And if you havent been to a guild meeting lately, you never know what you might be missing.

02.02.13 - Leaping leprechauns! G4 member Cadabra is one lucky Gnome! She ran Molten Core the other day, and picked up not just one but BOTH bindings for Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker on the SAME run!! Now MC has always been good to us Gnomes, but thats almost unheard of even for us! But Cad wasnt done there! She then went into Tempest Keep and walked away with the highly coveted Ashes of Al'ar phoenix mount! So the next time you see Cadabra, rub her head for luck, and then go punch your favorite boss! Because you never know when its going to be YOUR lucky day!

01.31.13 - Congratulations going out to Aizi who has become our latest Legendary Gnome! He picked up his second binding the other day and is now the proud wielder of Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Trade Spammer! But his luck didnt stop there! On last night's Retro Raid Night, his Priest: Dustie picked up G4's first shard of Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings, making Dustie our designated Val'anyr Shard Pickerupper in all Ulduar runs in which he is present! Well done Aizi!

01.21.13 - The Panda's are here! The inscruitable east met the technology driven west in a fun culture clash RP event Monday night! G4 hosted a guided tour of Tinkertown and Gnomeregan for members of the Jadepaw Dynasty guild, and some of their friends. I think both sides were left scratching their heads at times, but hopefully everyone came away with a little better understanding their new allies, and a new committment to more fun RP in the future!

01.16.13 - Thursday Rumby hosted "Gnew Gnome Gnight!" and it was a rousing success once everyone decided on a spec that is. Ten ingenious little heroes banded together intent upon leveling together. How far they will make it is anyone's guess, but one thing is for sure...when that many Gnomes team up, the Troggs dont stand a chance! There is still time for you to join in the fun though! Check out the event post on the forums for details.

01.12.13 - Chalk up another one for the dinky dynamos of Gnomeregan Forever! On Saturday we entered Dragon Soul for a rematch with Deathwing. But this time we played Picasso and put him on the canvas! Congratulations to everyone who took part in this offensive: Gizmoto, Footstorm, Brixee, Coggling, Tridyna, Shyndelle, Bellamy, Gizzywig, Nybble, Lyeli, and Weks!

01.01.13 - Happy Gnome Year! Wow and what a year its been! So much fun RP. So many Raid victories. So many achievements! And then there was the Ding Heard Round The World! And we've added so many hard working and creative Gnomes to the guild that I'm confident in predicting that this year will be even more exciting! Lets make 2013 the Year of the Gnome! And from all of us here at G4 to you and wishes for a happy and prosperous new year!

12.22.12 - I hope youve all been good little Gnomes, because its that most wonderful time of the year: Winter Veil! Time for snowball fights and reindeer rides, caroling and presents, and of course weapons grade fruit cakes from Smokeywood Pastures! Remember that G4 will be having a holiday party on the 30th. We'll be exchanging secret santa gifts and other fun things. Hope to see you there! And on behalf of Gnomeregan Forever I'd like to wish everyone a very merry holiday season. And in the words of a very famous Gnome...Light bless us every one!

12.10.12 - Woot! We're famous again, if only for a little while. I was so proud of you gnomes after our 10-Gnome Normal Firelands guild run that I included a link to the screenie I took in a post I made on the General community forums. For the second time a community manager, Crithto this time, popped in to say how awesome the shot was! This led to the post being mirrored on Blue Trackers including MMO Champion, and as a result we got a whole bunch of new applicants to the guild. So enjoy your 15 minutes people! Then get back to work ;)

12.08.12 - They knew it wouldnt be easy, but on Saturday G4's sawed-off smoke jumpers ventured into the Firelands intending to stamp out the Firelord Ragnaros. Sparks weren't the only things that flew during that fight! But when it was all over it was the Gnomes who were looking down at their adversaries.

Want to test your mettle against the fiercest foes for the glory of Gnomeregan? Get geared, get online Saturday nights, and get ready to rumble!

11.24.12 - As you may have noticed, the Gnomes of G4 are not resting on their laurels. They are continuing to push their limits in PvE content! As a result we earned the Glory of the Cataclysm Raider achievement this week! That means that these beautiful Dark Phoenix flying mounts are now available to our members from any Guild Vendor! If you havent already done so, go pick one up. You deserve it! And as a reminder, we need brave Gnomes like YOU to join us as we cut raid bosses down to size for the glory of Gnomeregan! Talk to Lt. Brixee to sign up!

11.24.12 - The Gnomes of G4 continued their tiny reign of terror among the Cataclysm raid bosses by taking the fight this week to none other than our old nemesis Nefarian from Blackwing Lair. Resurrected by Deathwing he was up to his old tricks in Blackwing Descent, aided and abetted by another familiar face: Onyxia! But the family that plots together, dies together (at least when Gnomes catch up to them). This was our first Blackwing Descent 10-Gnome Normal victory and secured for us the Blackwing Descent Guild Run achievement! Congratulations to our strike team of: Brixee, Gizmoto, Footstorm, Weks, Tima, Brezza, Frazzelz, Glitterspaz, Gizzywig, and Forbidra for a job well done!

11.21.12 - Its raining achievements! Well it almost seems that way, as the Gnomes of G4 keep racking up achieves great and small. You told us you'd like to see greater emphasis on both personal and guild achievements this year and we intend to deliver! One great way you can help is to be online on Fridays at 6PM for Retro Raid Night! We have fun chatting in vent and clearing older raids and dungeons! Its a great way to fill in your missing achievements and maybe pick up a spiffy new mount, transmog piece, or maybe even a Legendary weapon! See you there!

11.19.12 - Our intrepid researchers braved Horde attacks and food fights at the Bountiful Tables last week to interview Tall Folk, in an effort to document the origins of the Pilgrims Bounty holiday traditions! And we had a lot of fun doing it! One of our primary goals this year is to increase both the quantity and the quality of our RP as a guild. But we cant do it without YOU! Lt Siosil has been hosting weekly RP events. Watch for them on your calendar, and get involved!

11.18.12 - You told us you wanted more RP interaction with other guilds, and youre going to get it it! Gnomeregan Forever has made a tentative pact with other racial guilds including: Thunderwing Clan, Sentinel, Silverwing Sentinels and others. The goal is to organize RP, and occasionally RP-PvP events that will allow you to fight alongside our allies against Horde aggression! Watch your calendar for events, and get ready to rruummbbllee!!

11.17.12 - Another week, and another raid achievement! This time our tiny terrors turned out the lights in the Bastion of Twilight 10-Gnome Normal, another guild first voctory! This means we add The Bastion of Twilight Guild Run Achievement to our credit.

So if youre serious about cutting the biggest bad guys anywhere down to size for the glory of Gnomeregan...Sign Up, Gear Up, Study Up, and get ready to Tear It Up on Raid Night! Gnome Powah!!

11.10.12 - Another boss bites the dust! Saturday after the weekly guild meeting, G4's miniature meteorologists predicted clear skies, and breezed into Throne of the Four Winds! When the dust had settled Al'Akir the Windlord had been banished utterly at the hands of Gnomes! This was Gnomeregan Forever's first Throne of the Four Winds 10-Gnome Normal victory securing for us the Throne of the Four Winds Guild Run achievement.
Grats to all our shrimpy storm chasers: Jinkilie, Gizmoto, Gizzywig, Weks, Zephilia, Frazzlez, Glitterspazz, Coggens, Rhialah, and Forbidra for a job well done!

11.09.12 - Well I mentioned last week that we didnt get lucky, but the luck of the Gnomes cant be suppressed for long! Last night we ran the Mount Hyjal raid and cut Archi down to size. Looking for an encore we ran Black Temple and when Illidan hit the deck, what to our wondering eys should appear but the matching Warglaive Tridyna needed to complete her set! Securing for her the Warglaives of Azinoth Achievement, and the Warglaives of Azzinoth - Guild Edition Achievement for Gnomeregan Forever! Congratulations Tridyna on becoming our latest Legendary Gnome! And if youve been skipping Friday Nights, you just might be missing out on a Legendary...or TWO!
Forbs / Nov 10, 2012

11.02.12 - Another Friday night, and another Retro Raid Night is in the books. In case you have been skipping Friday nights, you should know that we are lucky Gnomes and we get lots of nifty drops! We ran Black Temple, and while we didnt manage to secure the off-hand Glaive for Tridyna this week, Brightmend walked away with the beautiful Staff of Immaculate Recovery! Afterwards we ran Sarth 3D and Gizzywig was this week's winner of a beautiful Twilight Drake flying mount! So whether youre looking for a new ride, an old achievement, that perfect piece to complete your Transmog set, or just have fun, Retro Raid Night is the place to be!
Forbs / May 25, 2012

07.27.12 - It was looking for a moment like we would need a bigger boat, but the forces of G4 were up to the task! And what a task it was! Mobus that bane of NPC trackers everywhere spawned in Vash'jir. Several Tall Folk and one Goblin tried to solo the beast with predictable results. But peace was soon restored once G4 arrived on the scene. We also picked up the From Hell's Heart Achievement! So dont forget to log in! You never know what sort of fun you might be missing out on!

07.27.12 - Another Retro-Raid Night is in the books, and loads of fun were had by all! We ran AQ40 first, and say not one but two rare drops! First Siosil won the roll on the rare Orb of Deception! So yes that IS a Tauren you see in that sidecar...sort of. Then Iketro won the roll on the elusive Red Qiraji Battle Tank mount, and secured the Why? Because It's Red Achievement! So if youre looking for something to do next Friday, come join us for Achievements, Mounts, Mog Gear, and Fun on Retro-Raid Night!

07.18.12 - We are indeed Legendary Gnomes. And today Glitterspaz became the latest of our member to wield the legendary sword: Thunderfury Blessed Blade of the Windseeker! Patience, persistence, and many runs of Molten Core finally paid off. Congratulations Glitter!

07.15.12 - Gnome RP is the best RP! And whenever we get together in-character its always a lot of fun. Because with that many Gnomes you never know what is going to happen. Lieutenant Siosil has been hosting weekly events, and one of the most fun is Tizzle's Tours. We all take an IC trip together to a different zone and Professor Tizzlesparks shows us the sights and explains the signifigance of the local lore. This is a great opportunity for you to RP your character in a relaxed atmosphere as well as learn more about the history of Azeroth! So keep an eye on the calendar for the next Tizzle's Tour! See you there!

07.14.12 - We downed the Lich King in 10-Gnome quite a while ago. So we figured it was about time Ice Crown Citadel got another lesson why they should pick on someone their own size...because little people HURT!! Our tiny teachers ratcheted the difficulty up to 25-Gnome. School was definitetly in session that night, but unfortunately we didnt make it to the Lich King before the bell rang, so we'll have to schedule a final exam for him another time.

07.13.12 - Retro-Raid Night is always fun, but since we had only high-levels online we decided to try something a little different, and so for the first time we tackled the Eye Of Eternity 25-Gnome! We had a few casualties, particularly during the flight phase, but Gnome Powah will out! G4 got its first Maly-25 kill, and we all had fun! Remember Retro-Raid Night happens on Fridays at 1800 hours Gnomish Standard!

07.12.12 - Well are you?? Gnomeregan Forever is on the march! In cooperation with our Dwarven allies in The Brotherhood of Iron, G4 is planning to launch a surprise LFR raid upon Dragon Soul! Want to to put your Gnome-sized bootprint on Deathwing's backside?? Start working on your gear NOW! You'll need ilvl 372 to get in (more obviously is better). We're going to need every Gnome we can muster! D-Day is July 21st. Be there!!

07.10.12 - Moar Arpeez! Thats one of our big goals here at G4, and whether youve never really roleplayed your Gnome or youre an old hand, there are great things to look forward to coming up! In recognition of her tireless efforts Siosil was officially promoted to Lieutenant in charge of RP! She will specifically be tasked with increasing the quantity and quality of G4's roleplaying operations. Please join with me in congratulating Siosil on her new position! She has great plans in the works so keep an eye on your calendar!

07.09.12 - We have lots of Gnomes approaching or actually at max level who need gear and practice working as part of an effective 5-Gnome team. That means we need to run more dungeons! If you need gear, come join us! And if you dont need gear, lend your assistance to help fill out groups. If we want to take down Deathwing, we'll need the best trained and equipped fighting force under four feet tall!

06.23.12 - Oohs and ahhs were in abundance at last Saturday as Order of the Golden Gear and Gnomeregan Forever teamed up to display some Gnomeregan Pride in Tinkertown! Then G4 put on a Fireworks Spectacular to close the show! Lots of fun and RP was had by all!

06.17.12 - I had said it many times before that the Lich King's days were numbered. On Sunday his number was up. "Now serving #1..." SOCK! POW! BIFF!! It was a tough fight. The Valkyr and Defile took their toll, but our half-sized heroes prevailed. This was G4's first Lich King 10-Gnome Normal victory, but hopefully not the last. The king is dead. Long live G4!

06.15.12 - As usual we had fun and bugged some of the older bosses during our weekly Retro-Raid Night. This week we visited C'Thun in Temple of Ahn'Qiraj a 40-Gnome Classic raid. We didnt quite have forty Gnomes, but not even an Old God can withstand a Gnomish cavalry charge on bug mounts! Join us for some Friday night fun!

The dauntless dinkies of G4 once again destroyed the Black Temple during our Weekly Retro-Raid Night! Despite our state of preparedness nearing record levels, Illidan had the last laugh Glaives dropped. Maybe next time!

05.19.12 - Our weekly raid night found G4 on trial! Trial of the Crusader to be precise. Despite an arresting performance by Wilfred Fizzlebang, it was the bad guys who couldnt escape the short arm of the law, as Gnomeregan Forever locked up its first Trial of the Crusader 10-Gnome Normal victory! Well done Gnomes!

05.18.12 - Another fun Retro-Raid Night is in the books. We ran Blackwing Lair and had a great time visiting our old buddy Nefarian! He still didnt drop his hat though. >.<

05.11.12 - G4 got its fifteen minutes of fame and then some! Following up on tips they received following our lvl 25 ding and the resulting blue post, WoW Insider contacted Forbs for an interview! The resulting story ran on May 11th, and you can read it here! Since then Gnomes from all over the World of Warcraft have journeyed to Wyrmrest Accord to join forces with Gnomeregan Forever!

04.23.12 - G4 got the blues...but in a good way! Overcome by Gnome Pride Forbs posted on the General Forums about our Big Ding to lvl 25. This caught the attention of Zarhym one of the Blizzard Community Managers who replied: "This makes me super happy. I want to join this guild." And then things started getting crazy. The thread got picked up by Blue Trackers on WoW related websites like MMO Champion. As a result we've had many new applicants, and many congratulations from players and guilds here on Wyrmrest Accord.

04.22.12 - Even I who regularly heralds your triumphs large and small find myself nearly speechless in the face of this reality. Once again tiny Gnomes have surmounted a big challenge, and this one is huge! The first Level 25 All-Gnome Guild on the realm, maybe...anywhere! Take a moment and reflect on everything youve accomplished G4. All the fun, all the Guild Achievements, and now Guild Level 25! And we're not done yet...not by a longshot! You can hold your heads high Gnomes, because G4 can stand alongside the other great racial guilds of Wyrmrest Accord! So go off your new Golden King Mounts! You EARNED it!

04.14.12 - After many attempts another bastion of evil has fallen to forces of Gnomeregan! Saturday night Jinkilie, Lissalou, Cogglling, Pinion, and Brightmend assaulted the last bastion of the Twilights Hammer's power in Deepholm. When the battle was finally over victory as well as both the Heroic: The Stonecore Guild Run and the Guild Cataclysm Dungeon Hero Achievements were ours! Hooray!
Forbs / Mar 05, 2012

03.23.12 - Once again our weekly Friday Night Retro-Raid was a big success. This week we cleared the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj to keep the site safe for the archaeological teams. We had a lot of fun and everyone picked up some RP gear and colorful bug mounts! Log on Friday nights and join the fun!

03.10.12 - Three times we tried, and three times we failed to down Algalon the Observer. But this week ten of our most veteran Gnomes journeyed to Ulduar determined to even the score. And when the dust settled, the forces of Gnomeregan emerged triumphant, and G4's first full clear of Ulduar was in the books.

Not only did we bring home the He Feeds On Your Tears - Guild Edition Achievement for Gnomeregan Forever, but we all picked up the personal Observed 10 Gnome Achievement and the Starcaller title for ourselves!

Want to join the fun and test your mettle against the greatest threats to Gnomekind? Then be online Saturdays at 6PM server for Progression Nite!

03.08.12 - Once again Gnomes have plundered the Molten Core and come back with Legendary Loot! Last Thursday Coggling became our fifth member to take up a Legendary weapon in the name of Gnomeregan Forever, and the third to wield Thunderfury Blessed Blade of the Windseeker! Congrats Coggs!

03.03.12 - At long last Yogg Saron the nemesis of Ulduar has been defeated by the forces of Gnomeregan! Nine of our strongest and shortest Gnomes entered Yogg's prison stronghold, and though they were rebuffed time and again, refused to acknowlege defeat. Combining true Gnomish resilience and ingenuity, they refined their tactics with each assault until at last victory was assured!

Want to join the fun and tackle the gravest threats ever to face Gnomekind and cut them down to size? Level your Gnome and grab your gear and get online! For the glory of Gnomeregan!!

03.02.12 - Reminder! Fridays are Retro-Raid Night! Popular destinations include: Kharazan, Black Temple, Sunwell, Mt. Hyjal, Tempest Keep and Gruuls. Come have some fun, pick up some Achievements, and maybe complete that Transmog set you've been working on!

02.28.12 - We know that everyone loves Gnomes, but it's official now. On Brixee and Forb's weekly Molten Core run Brixee dinged to Exalted with the Hydraxian Waterlords, making that the 55th Guild Exalted Reputation, and earning us the United Nations Achievement!

This means the Dark Phoenix Hatchling companion pet is now available for our members to purchase from the guild vendor. That means you'll need to grind one more Exalted rep...with Gnomeregan Forever to buy it. Blizzard loves irony. =)

02.14.12 - Just in time for Valentine's Day Blizzard has released the Heart of the Aspects flying mount through the Blizzzard Pet Store. A mere $25 and this stylish mount could be yours! This delightful dragon also features a unique serpentine swimming animation, but sadly has no walking/running animation, and cannot land on the ground.

It is also clearly the first Asian themed mount we've seen and hints strongly at things we can look forward to in Mists of Pandaria.

02.05.12 - Love may not be the only thing in the air as the Steamwheedle Cartel and the Crown Chemical Company wage all out war over concession rights to the most romantic holiday of the year! Luckily for us there are new mounts, Pets, achievements, and profit opportunities this year for us!

The Truesilver Shafted Arrow which was BoP last year is now Bind on Use, allowing you to mail, trade, or even sell this companion pet in the Auction House! There is a new ground mount this year: the Swift Lovebird! This mount can also be traded or sold!

02.08.12 - The might of the Alliance assembled, and among their number were some of G4's most battle hardened veterans. They came not for revenge, but for Retribution for crimes committed by the Horde. Among the guilds who lent their aid to this ambitious RP-PvP event were Against All Odds, Gnomeregan Forever, Boulder Shoulder Brigade, Sentinel, and Shanre.

The IC war party assembled in Darkshore and then rampaged through Ashenvale destroying all Horde targets in their path including Maestra's Post, Astranaar, Splintertree Post, Warsong Lumber Camp, and culminated with a daring attack upon the Orc capitol of Orgrimmar itself!

Our Gnomes acquitted themselves with honor in battle, and much fun, RP, and Honor Kills were had! Looking forward to the next one!

01.25.12 - Molten Core has been good to G4, and our string of good luck was extended even further as the late and unlamented Ragnaros bequeathed the Eye of Sulfuras to Jinkilie during our weekly run. After assembling the appropriate rare materials and a quick trip to Black Rock Depths later, Jinkie became our fourth Gnome to wield a Legendary weapon and the second to lay claim to Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros! Congratulations Jinkie!
Forbs / Nov 30, 2011

I've been kinda slacking on the news posts. Lazy GM is lazy. In my defense though its been kinda busy. OMG Hallows End! Pilgrims Bounty! Patch 4.3! So another bumper crop of press clippings!

11.29.11 - Tuesday the 29th was the long awaited Patch Day! Patch 4.3 deployed on the live servers, and there was a mad rush to the Transmogrify vendor! Some new 5-Gnome and Raids were opened up, and there were numerous class balance changes. It will may be worth your time to look them over here: LINK. The new and improved Darkmoon Faire will be opening up in a few days. Watch for the NPC's in major cities!

11.26.11 - Saturday the 26th was slow. Once again we had too few veteran Gnomes to fill out a raid group for Ulduar. And so we decided to work on other things. After watching Jinkelie solo Magtheridon...sort of =), we had a go at Tempest Keep: The Eye. Alas our Gnome Powah was lacking that night, and while we downed three of the bosses, we were unable to deal Kael'thas another setback, and were forced to leave empty handed. Our thirst for adventure still unquenched Forbs, Eza, Tizzlesparks, Bellamy and Glitterspaz went back in time to the Culling of Stratholme and picked up the Zombiefest! Achievement to get us one step closer to our Red Proto-Drakes!

11.25.11 - Black Friday, what better time to schedule a Black temple Guild Run? And so Gnomedoom, Bellamy, Brightmend, Lexifrazz, Tikky, Tizzlesparks, Wedgewood, and some elf impersonating Larvick showed Illidan and his cronies just who was prepared and who wasnt!

11.20.11 - Saturday the 20th the Pilgrims Bounty event arrived and ruffled a few feathers amoung the Rogue community. But our Gnomes got into it in a big way. Everyone got their characters cooking up to high Wrath levels quickly, and racking up many holiday Achievements, Titles, and Pets! Alas we had too few high level Gnomes to continue our Ulduar assault and it was postponed a week.

11.18.11 - Friday the 18th proved to be lucky for G4. On our guild run of Molten Core at long last Garr finally dropped the second Bindings of the Windseeker that Brixee has been looking for. And so after a short trip to Silithus, Brixee became G4's second wielder of Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker and our third Gnome to wield a Legendary weapon! Congratulations Brixee!!

11.17.11 - The evening of Thursday the 17th, the smell of blood and dark magics hung in the air over Kalimdor. The Horde RP-PvP event: Warpath got underway with a raid full of Horde players under the influence of a mysterious elixir that increased their size and ferocity attacking Night Elf defenses and population centers in western Kalimdor. G4 Special Operatives: Forbidra, Lexifrazz, Bellamy, and Wedgewood were put on alert and deployed in support of our allies including <Against All Odds>, and <Bouldershoulder Brigade>. The Horde raiders plowed through our defenses at Astranaar without slowing down, flanked our defensive stand at Lor'danel, and struck the very heart of Darnassus! Both Red & Blue sides honored the rules of engagement, with pauses between fighting to facilitate RP, a great time was had by all!

11.12.11 - Saturday the 12th arrived not a moment too soon, and with a full raid group of Gnomes, it was time to test our mettle in Ulduar again! Led by Algalon who wiped us four times, the Keepers showed no signs of backing down. But we persevered, and by the end of the night we had penetrated deep into Ulduar and downed three more bosses: the Assembly of Iron, Auriava, and Mimiron! This brings our progress in Ulduar 10-Gnome Normal to: eight of fourteen!

11.10.11 - They say desperate times call for desperate measures, and so it was on Thursday the 10th. Forbidra, Flashlight, and Cohlien were forced to recruit a most impractical paladin, and a warrior who smelled strongly of dog biscuits to assist them on a dangerous mission. It was a grim business indeed, but in the end Gnomeregan Forever acquired the Heroic: Grim Batol Guild Run Achievement!

11.09.11 - DING!! Wednesday the 9th a lot of hard work by a lot of Gnomes paid off as Gnomeregan Forever became a level 20 Alliance Guild! This means we add Happy Hour to our already impressive list of Guild Perks! It also means that we have unlocked Heirloom Helms! You must be Honored with the guild to purchase them from the vendor, and they are pricey. Unlike other Heirlooms however that stop scaling at lvl 80, these helms scale to lvl 85! They add a 10% Experience boost, and as always you can mail them to any of your Wyrmrest Accord alts of either faction!

Then Forbs, Glitterspaz, Flashlight, and Jinkelie, along with the help of an off-server Boomchicken managed to down that old blow-hard Siamat and his worshippers on Heroic Difficulty to earn G4 the Heroic: Lost City of the Tol'vir Guild Run Achievement!

11.05.11 - Saturday the 5th was the fateful day that G4 first set foot inside the Titan's legendary seat of power: Ulduar! But all was not as the Titans left it. Systemic corruption of the guardians and systems they left behind ensured that our intrepid Gnomes had to fight for every step. But at the end of the evening, no less than five of the fourteen bosses there had been vanquished by Gnomes, including: Flame Leviathan, Ionis the Furnace Master, Razorscale, XT-002 Deconstructor, and Kologarn!

10.31.11 - Monday came an with it the end of Hallows End, along with the painful realization that Forbs would be without a Headless Horsie for at least another year! But even as the moon rose on the final evening of Hallows End an amazing sight appeared in the sky above Stormwind! An enormous ghostly dragon, and perched upon its back...a Gnome! The Realm First Legendary staff went to Nacilep a Gnome in the Valhalla guild.

10.29.11 - Saturday the 29h, with the end of the Hallows End holiday event in sight, many of us attended the Hallows End Costume Ball hosted by The Embersea Accord. There were lots of amazing costumes! But the one who took home the grand prize was none other than our own Lexifrazz, who won over the judges with her brilliant "Mini-Deathwing" costume!

Then finally it was H-Hour, and nine of G4's most veteran Gnomes penetrated the defenses of the Lich King's aerial fortress of Naxxramas, and began a relentless assault upon Kel'Thuzad and his most powerful lieutenants. I cant begin to describe all of the glorious battles. But when it was all over, eighteen bosses including Kel'Thuzad himself had been vanquished by Gnomes! We picked up the Just Cant Get Enough Guild Edition Achievement, along with at least a dozen personal achievements!

10.26.11 - Wednesday the 26th was the first official GEARS society meeting. This is Bucklem's IC exploration group. We met a mysterious alchemist, and ended up undertaking a dangerous mission into Blackrock Spire to procure venom from a spider that was a wee bit bigger than we bargained for! Good IC fun. Looking forward to more events like this!

First off I'd like to begin by welcoming the nifty new Gnomes we got this week: Amalora, Eudora, Nemena, and Quixx! Make us proud guys!

Tuesday couldnt arrive soon enough for most of us Gnomes! And with came one of the favorite and most eagerly anticipated holiday events on Azeroth: Hallows End! This of course kicked off a flurry of activity as Gnomes fanned out across the game world to get their fill of candy, Achievements, and fun!

There have also been a bunch of imaginitive Hallows End events hosted by various guilds. From ghost stories told around the campfire, to D&D style RP scenarios, to full on RP-PvP battles against the Horde in Skeleton costumes! There are events scheduled every day of Hallows End. So I do hope youre not too distracted by dailies to join in the fun!

Sunday we gathered up the team and helped a lot of our lowbies get the Bring Me The Head of... Oh Wait Achievement that they wouldnt have been able to get for another year any other way! We're all about teamwork here at G4, so if you need help with the Holiday achieves, let us know!

On Saturday we gathered our higher level Gnomes and went Trick or Treating in the Obsidium Sanctum. After we Teepeed his guards, Sartharion tried to show us a trick involving three Twilight Drakes. But the Gnomes were having none of that, and in the end he reluctantly gave us a Treat: the Reigns of the Black Drake! Jendal won the roll so gratz to her! In addition to personal Achievements for nearly all of us, we also picked up the Twilight Zone - Guild Edition Achievement! This fight was rather easy for us, so we can definitely do this again to try for more Drakes!

Then we moved on to a real tricky fight, our first ever Eye of Eternity 10-Gnome difficulty attempt! Once again, preparation paid off! Everyone did pretty much exactly what they needed to do in Phase One and Two, and then we all dropped onto Red Drakes for the third and final Phase. We lost a few people, but we managed to take down the Blue Aspect for our very first Malygos 10 kill! Amongst the Achievement spam on our screens was the You Dont Have an Eternity - Guild Edition Achievement!

This puts our progress towards The Glory of the Lich King Raider Achievement at 2/8!
Impressive! But the Lich King's most feared lieutenants await us in the frozen north. Are you up to the challenge? We shall see! The Gnomes assault upon the flying fortress of Naxxramas begins Saturday!

It was kind of a slow week, which was welcome after all excitement of the previous weeks. But we still had some fun together, and we have some firsts to report, so...on with the news!!

Thursday Glitterspaz and I journeyed to Felwood to secure Rainbow Generators for ourselves. After a short quest chain we got them. The cooldown is annoyingly long, but the effect is undeniably impressive. Behold! Witness the power of the Carebear Stare!!

Friday we were joined by three Tall Folk on a retro raid of the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj. We managed to get all the bosses down except the optional boss owing to a lack of sufficient Frost damage in the raid. No one got the rare Red Qiraj Battle Tank mount, but several people got their raid achievements!

Saturday was our much anticipated Dragon Hunt! Owing to the enormous size of our quarry, only our highest level Gnomes could participate in this offensive. First on the list was the Black Dragonflight's would-be brood queen: Onyxia! We did this in 10-Gnome difficulty with a mere six of us. Though this is a tricky fight, our preparation paid off with a nearly flawless kill! We all recieved not only the Onxia's Lair (10 Gnome) Achievement, but also the More Dots! (10 Gnome) Achievement as well! THough there is no guild Achievement for it, this was G4's first Onyxia kill!

Then we moved on to bigger game...the Obsidium Sanctum! We also tackled this fight in 10-Gnome difficulty, though there were only seven of us. After handily clearing all the trash, and the three Twilight Drakes: Shadron, Tenebron, and Vesperon, we finally had the Onyx Guardian Sartharion in our sights. Once again, taking time to discuss the upcoming fight contributed to a relatively easy victory. We all picked up the Besting The Black Dragonflight (10 Gnome) Achievement as well as the Less Is More (10 Gnome) Acievement! Though there is no guild Achievement for Sarth 10 0D, this was G4's first Sartharion kill!

And while I love to talk about our accomplishments as a guild, its time to give shout outs to both Pinion and Miltimus who dinged to level 85 this week! They have become the latest additions to our growing cadre of max level Gnomes! Well done guys!

And last but not least, please join me in welcoming our newest nifty Gnomes: Dremel, Gnolan, Leonic, Scoggin, and Scogger! Make us proud guys!

We have some exciting and ambitious goals ahead of us Gnomes! The very fun and challenging Wrath of the Lich King raid content is waiting to be conquered by us Gnomes. Are you up to the challenge?? Level up, gear up, and join us on our historic Northrend Offensive!
