It is said that the long-lost history of the origins of the Gnomes is attributed to the lost story of the Mechagnomes. Mechagnomes are the creation of Mimiron, often called “The Grand Architect”, in the titan-forged complex of Ulduar. Like the earthen, they are initially intended to work as caretakers and servants to the titan creators. During the betrayal of Keeper Loken, Mimiron was killed by Loken himself. The Mechagnomes rushed to save their master’s life by collecting Mimiron’s shattered soul and implanting it on a giant Mechagnome body. Despite this, they could not save their master. The remaining earthen and Mechagnomes left Ulduar and lived on the titan-forged facility of Uldaman.

Thousands of years before the Dark Portal, the Old God Yogg-Saron spread the Curse of Flesh to curse the creations of the titans. The Mechagnomes from Uldaman ultimately suffered the curse and became flesh beings that are now known today as Gnomes. They lost all their sense of purpose and have forgotten their history in the process. Those who were left and still resided on the Storm Peaks of Northrend were unaffected by the Curse of Flesh and retained their characteristics.

In this guide, we’ll get to know a summary about the Mechagnomes’ short history during the wars and how they can be unlocked as a playable character in-game. The guide will also tackle their appearance, racial traits, and available classes for the Mechagnome race. We’ll also create a list of our Top WOW Male and Female Mechagnome Names, a list of some Funny Mechagnome Names, and a ranking of the Top 10 Best Mechagnome Name Suggestions.

The Mechagon Mechagnomes

It was introduced in the introductory part that Mechagnomes are direct descendants of the Gnomes. As to what happened to the Mechagnomes of Storm Peaks is another story to tell. Moving forward to the days of the Fourth War between the Alliance and the Horde, both factions discovered the remote island of Mechagon. Here, a group of gnomes who has partial mechanical implants on their bodies inhabits the island and was ruled by King Mechagon. These hybrid Gnomes are also called Mechagon Mechagnomes or simply a Mechagnome; much like how their ancestors were called. The Mechagnomes from this island are either partially mechanical to fully mechanical. It is said that on the island, the more sophisticated and advanced the implants of a Mechagnome, the higher their social status becomes.

400 years ago, King Mechagon and his followers searched for a mystical land said to be composed of endless technology. He did not leave any clue as to where he was going and as years pass by, his legend was eventually forgotten. His motives for this search originated from his vision to revert the Curse of Flesh that plagued the Gnomes since time immemorial. King Mechagon founded a new island in an isolated location which he now calls Mechagon Island, named after himself. In his newly found kingdom, Gnomes are expected to revert their physical attributes and transform them into mechanical parts. He outlaws any non-mechanical creature and beasts. He ordered his soldiers to arrest anything that does not comply with this requirement, including innocent creatures such as rabbits, squirrels, and fishes. He puts these creatures on trial and forcefully order most of them to be mechanized, exiled, or executed.

Prince Erazmin, the son of King Mechagon, opposed his father’s ambition for a purely mechanized world. He formed the Rustbolt Resistance which was later aided by the adventurers [Alliance/Horde player] when they discovered access to the Mechagon Islands.

Unlocking the Mechagnomes in World of Warcraft

Unlocking the Mechagnomes as a playable character race requires two conditions: A player must earn the Exalted status with the Rustbolt Resistance; And complete the Mechagon storyline.

Allied Races: Mechagnomes

Upon founding the Rustbolt Resistance, Prince Erazmin was offered aid from the Alliance and Horde. Tinkmaster Overspark is the leader of the Alliance while the Horde is led by Gazlowe. The prince hopefully requested both factions to set aside their differences and fight together. King Mechagon died during these events and his plans to “cure” the Curse of Flesh were thwarted. The Alliance adventurer is then tasked with helping to revive the injured High Tinker of the Gnomes, Gelbin Mekkatorque, who was kept frozen since the Battle of Dazar’alor. After they revived the High Tinker, the Alliance adventurer and Prince Erazmin restored the High Tinker’s mental function. Upon retrieving his consciousness, The High Tinker rejoined the Alliance and returned to Mechagon city to eliminate the remaining loyalist of King Mechagon. Prince Erazmin expressed his undying gratitude with the Alliance adventurer and with the High Tinker. Erazmin proposed that Mechagon, as a whole, should be reunited with Gnomeregan, with High Tinker Gelbin Mekkatorque as their sole leader. Mekkatorque agreed and this officially marked the joining of the Mechagnomes to the Alliance faction.

Players will receive the Allied Races: Mechagnome achievement when they completed this series of quest lines and unlocks the Mechagnome as a playable character in-game. A player can acquire an unlockable Mechagnome Heritage Armor by reaching level 50 without character boosting. This also includes the Heritage of the Mechagnome Feat of Strength. Also, note that these items can only be transmogged by Mechagnome characters.

Mechagnomes Appearance

The ancient Mechagnomes created by Mimiron are purely mechanical beings composed of metallic plates, screws, and runic lights. All facial features such as eyes, brows, and mustaches are mechanical. Gender is rumored to be non-existent because one cannot easily identify males from females because both are most likely very similar to one another. Their voices when responding sounded like a common Gnome but with a robotic tone to it.

Mechagon Mechagnomes are Gnomeregan Gnomes who received mechanical implants and modifications in Mechagon Island. Some of them are still Gnomes while others became purely mechanized from head to toe. Nevertheless, they still have Gnomish features such as height, torso, feet, and face.

Skeleton Pinkie


Mechagnomes has a small functioning pinkie that they can use to open locked chests and doors on a similar level to them.

Game Suggestions: Mechagnomes are highly recommended for a tank role due to their Emergency Failsafe trait. However, the Combat Analysis also provides good sustaining damage and tank when doing combat; therefore, a Mechagnome that can sustain damage for longer periods is ideal while, at the same time, not sacrificing DPS. A Mechagnome DK, Mechagnome Warrior. And Mechagnome Monk is ideal for this scenario. The Hyper Organic Light Originator trait is good for distracting enemies and diverting focus away from the main Mechagnome. This skill is proven useful for squishy classes such as a Mechagnome Mage and Mechagnome Warlock. The rest of the classes are beneficial too and it is up to the players to experiment on it.

Mechagnome Names

Mechagnome names are also similar to Gnomeregan Gnome names. However, some Mechagon Mechagnomes modified their old Gnome names and created their nickname to indicate how mechanically oriented they are. This means that Mechagnomes can either have a generic Gnome name or a technology-related nickname.

Before you proceed, the following funny names may not be funny for others. Puns and jokes are strictly implemented.




A smart and all-knowing Mechagnome. She knows where your car keys at, what time of the day it is, and how much traffic jam is in your area. Very useful companion indeed.


It is said that she is the mother of Alexa, and probably where Alexa was derived from. Anyways, whatever Alexa can do, Siri can… in a lesser manner because she is old. 


Whatever your Mechagnome characteristics are, we are sure this name will give you an edge in-game while not removing the funny side from it.

Top WOW Mechagnome Names Suggestions

As a finale for this guide, we are giving the readers a ranking of our Top 10 highly suggested Mechagnome names. The names listed here will be collected from the earlier male and female Mechagnome name suggestions. We ranked the names based on how relevant are the names when it comes to Mechagnome characteristics and personality, and of course how nice are the names themselves. Check out our rankings below.









We derived this name from the word Dynamo, a miniature DC motor. We associated this name as a fully mechanized Mechagnome who achieved immortality. That’s already an interesting background story. Moreover, the name sounds technology-related and striking.





This name came from the word Blitzkrieg, depicting something fast and striking. We place this name on someone who received mechanical legs and became full-throttled when running. Overall, the name sounds nice and simple yet cool for a Mechagnome character.





We love her background story, to start with. She was an Alliance aviator until she joined King Mechagon’s voyage. As to what happened why she became fully mechanical, we left out those details for more storytelling. Additionally, the name also sounds nice and awesome for a female Mechagnome.





We came up with this name from the word Gizmo, something associated with gadgets and technology. We like the idea of him being called Gnomolaround because he has everything to sell for any Mechagnome needing parts.





We associated this name with a Mechagnome mage—and that’s where it gets interesting! We imagined him having a mechanical staff connected to his battery core which amplifies his damage. Intriguing, right? We derived the name from the word Bolt, a common lightning spell in-game.





We initially want to create a name surrounding the word Beta. But we decided to change it and transform the name to someone related to cloning. So there’s a BethA, BethB, and BethC. We are placing this name for a nice lore idea. Additionally, Mechagnomes having “version” numbers in their name is something new, right?.





From the word Wattson, a pun name for Watson and Watts, a unit of power. Since we associated the name with power, we created lore about a Mechagnome who seeks… power. We also like the cute name transformation (Wattzie) which is why we are placing this name on the list.





A Mechagnome with wheels? Why not! The name sounds Gnomish, while at the same time not removing the Mechagnomish concept from it. We also associate its character as a loyalist of King Mechagon who volunteered himself in undergoing mechanical transition.





We based this name on the word Clockwork, and instead of clocks, its traps. We imagine him as a character who carries lots of tools to create traps for their opponents. The resulting name is also nice and we want to use it on our next Mechagnome character.





Lastly, Taze was based on the word Taser. We described him as a Mechagnome Monk who does melee combat. Careful, his gauntlets are high-volt tasers! Is that even fair for a fistfight? Anyway, we like the name concept and the background lore and we’re putting him last on this list.

There are other race-specific names from our WOW Name Generator. We have a huge library of ready-made names suitable to any WOW characters of your choice. The names we provide are cool, unique, and free!
