Mechagon Island[1][2] (displayed as just Mechagon in the overworld) is an island located northwest of Kul Tiras. Added in patch 8.2.0, it features one zone (slightly bigger than the Timeless Isle)[3] and a Mythic-only, Operation: Mechagon 8-boss megadungeon, in addition to the Robodrome arena.

Description

A mystery awaits that is of particular interest to the gnomes and goblins. A previously closed vault in Kul Tiras has opened and within it a radio transmitter sends a signal for help and points to a new land to explore, Mechagon. This is an ancient lost city of the gnomes. The beginning of the adventure is within the Junker Wastes where heroes will be beset by death robots, but there are potential allies nearby. Hunted by robots themselves, the mechagnomes introduce you to a whole new society and take you to where higher cast gnomes live who have dedicated themselves to their king and have embraced robotics.

King Mechangon[sic] has a vision to return anyone of flesh into more pure robotic parts and it's up to you to put a stop to him.[4]

History

Mimiron built a vault here in which he keeps technological and titan marvels.[5]

Before King Mechagon claimed the island, other civilizations lived upon it. The history of these forgotten people was buried beneath the land.[6] Evidence of two different civilizations appear, with one having been vrykul in origin[7] and the other appears to have been tortollans.[8] A very old night elven ring was also found, creating more questions about who lived here.[9] It seems pirates were also active around the area.[10]

King Mechagon was once the king of the Gnomeregan gnomes, who 400 years ago[11] led his followers in search of a mystical land of technology. He left no clues where he was headed and over time his tale became a legend to the gnomes.[12] In truth, King Mechagon managed to find this land and claimed it as his own. Since then, Mechagon Island has become the lost home of the mechagnomes.[13] Under the guidance of Walton Cogfrenzy, the gnomes erected the mighty underground marvel of Mechagon City.[14] Under King Mechagon, the gnomes began to convert themselves into partially mechanical versions of themselves; thus removing the problems of age upon their society.

Centuries later, the elderly gnome adventurer Kervo Cogpipe single-handedly found his way to the legendary lost island.

When King Mechagon started planning "curing" the entire world population of their natural curse of flesh, his son Prince Erazmin revolted against him.[15] Not long after, a few groups of the Alliance and Horde arrived on the island and despite being at war, they settled down their differences to help the Erazmin dethrone his father.

Geography

Mechagon is a small island located northwest of Kul Tiras and has a similar landscape and fauna as Stormsong Valley. Rustbolt, home to the Rustbolt Resistance, is located on the northeast of the island while the entrance to Mechagon City, the Junkwatt Depot, is found in the southwestern hills. North lies a small mountainous area where the Scrapbone troggs make their home within Scrapbone Den. Southwest lies a small cluster of islands known as the Toothy Shallows.
