Greetings, WoW Classic adventurers! Let's chat about why the Gnomeregan raid, coming in Season of Discovery Phase 2, is stirring up excitement among players. Once a dungeon that many had mixed feelings about, Gnomeregan is now poised to be an exhilarating level 40 raid. 
The Transformation from Dungeon to Raid
Gnomeregan's transition from a dungeon to a raid follows the successful model of Blackfathom Deeps (BFD), which was a hit at level 25. Given this precedent, there's every reason to believe Gnomeregan will follow suit, offering a dynamic raid experience. The original Gnomeregan dungeon, with its highest-level items at level 32, leaves ample room for creative adjustments and enhancements.
Learning from BFD
BFD's raid version maintained the core essence of the dungeon while elevating the experience. We can expect Gnomeregan to undergo a similar metamorphosis. In BFD, the level of gear was consistent with the raid level, suggesting that Gnomeregan's drops will likely be level 40 with an item level around 45 to 50.
Expanding the Boss Roster
Gnomeregan is significantly larger than BFD, offering diverse zones filled with troggs, gnomes, dark iron dwarfs, and more. This variety provides a fertile ground for introducing new bosses. While the dungeon version of Gnomeregan had seven bosses, it's reasonable to anticipate a similar or slightly larger number in the raid version given its size and complexity.
Potential Loot and Gear
Gnomeregan's original loot pool, while not as robust as BFD's still contains iconic items like Toxic Revenger and Electrocutioner Leg. Expect to see enhanced versions of these items along with some exciting epic pieces. Given the raid's level, it's likely that we'll see gear that caters to the needs of classes transitioning into new armor types, like Hunters moving into mail and Warriors into plate.
Mounts and Unique Drops
A unique aspect to look forward to is the potential introduction of exclusive mounts. Gnomeregan's mechanical theme offers a perfect opportunity for innovative mount designs, possibly including unused mechanostrider colors or even a mechano spider. This would not only add a unique flair to the raid but also serve as a coveted reward for players.
In summary, Gnomeregan's transformation into a level 40 raid in WoW Classic's Season of Discovery is shaping up to be an exceptional addition to the game. With its expanded boss roster, potential for unique loot, and the chance to introduce novel mounts, Gnomeregan is set to offer an experience that's both nostalgic and refreshingly new. Stay tuned for more updates, and let's prepare for an unforgettable raiding experience in Azeroth!
