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.

There are also a plethora of new items and blueprints being added which you can purchase from Myron in Gnomeland Security.



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.
