World of Warcraft expands 7.2.5 testing to include Gnomeregan race, new pet battle dungeon

Testing continues apace on World of Warcraft’s Patch 7.2.5, according to a forum update informing players about some changes and additions. One of the most interesting of these is the announcement of yet another micro-holiday: The Great Gnomeregan Race.

Blizzard introduced the Auction Hall Dance Party for testers to experience with the latest build, and said that there are plenty of class changes in store for this round. A new pet battle dungeon that takes place in the Deadmines was also introduced, and the team said that it has a lot of difficulty tuning yet to do on Black Temple timewalking.

Meanwhile, Blizzard’s Steve Danuser published a short story on the site called “Dark Mirror.” The 14-page story should be of particular interest to Sylvanas fans, as the Banshee Queen features most prominently. MMORPG fans will remember Steve Danuser as the Lead Content Designer for the ill-fated EverQuest Next; he left Daybreak in 2015.

I don’t know how much it was addressed in game, but I like the detail given to Nathanos’ backstory. Having played through both when he was in located in the Plaguelands, and now part of the Forsaken forces, it was a good read.

Totally read this as the “gnomeregan playable race” and for an instant through they were adding another tiny race to the game. Should have known better :-)
