Tinkerfest 2024

The scorch marks around the Gnomeland Security area from last year's celebration have finally healed with a lovely ground cover growing back over it. Singed hair has grown back. Limbs have been regrown. What does that mean? It means it is time to increase the number of gnomish explosions, of course! With a BANG! and a BOOM! (and many cries of "Medic!") Tinkerfest 2024 is on the horizon! This year, instead of throwing in the kitchen sink, we're throwing in a ... bathtub that you can sit in!

This annual gnomish (including honorary gnomes) celebration will run on all servers from June 6, 2024 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific through June 19, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific. The special rules servers will have the following parts of the event:

  • Kael Drakkel will have the entirety of the event other than the Hack 'n Slash PQ.
  • Varsoon and Zarrakon will have the entirety of the event other than the Hack 'n Slash PQ and the Tinkerfest Aether Races

Are You New?

Is this your first time celebrating this event? Or is your memory fuzzy enough that you need a refresher?

  • Gnomeland Security in the Steamfont Mountains is the main hub for this event, with portals from all "celebration" areas sending you back to the main hub in Gnomeland. (Celebrating gnomes, surrounded by harvestable cogs and purple shinies, can be found in all home cities as well as the docks of Thurgadin, the gnome area in Solusek's Eye, and Dropship Landing in the Moors)
  • The shiny tinkerfest cogs, used for shopping and for crafting, are harvestable "!" items in all celebration areas. They can also be brought back by an upgraded pack pony (100 per 2-hour run).
  • The second purple shiny collection (added in 2016) requires that you have completed (and handed in) the first purple shiny collection. Once you have done so, half of the collection can then be found in the Gnomeland Security area; the other half of the collection will be found in Qeynos and Freeport in the celebration areas.
  • You will need to know the gnomish language (from a language trainer if you're not a gnome) in order to obtain some of the quests.
  • Vendor Tarly in Gnomeland Security will sell all of the past Tinkerfest recipes and items for you while vendor Myron will sell the current year's recipes and items. You will need some shiny tinkerfest cogs before you can buy the books, so scrounge up a few before you go shopping.
  • The quest tracker included in a section below will be a godsend if you are trying to run more than one alt through the event. Quest details for all the quests can be found on the wiki's Tinkerfest article.
  • Protip: if you see an item sold on either Myron or Tarly costs 2 shiny Tinkerfest cog, it usually means that it can also be crafted. (Or is a special achievement unlock.)

**Unmount, and then right-click the bathtub to hop in it. Right-click again, and you are leaning back in the bathtub with a few bubbles coming up. Does not work on aerakyn, who apparently only want to stand in the tub and get a foot bath while their wings stay dry. ;)
