What’s Playing in Late September
Gelbin Mekkatorque, Warcraft’s king of the Gnomes and High Tinker of Gnomeregan, is arguably one of the most inventive minds active in Azeroth today. No design is too challenging, no schematic too complex for the gnomes’ beloved leader. Of course, Gelbin is a master planner and extraordinarily organized, so keeping track of everything going is as easy as breathing for him. But the rest of us can use a little help every once in a while to remind us of the big happenings on our gaming calendars.
Every two weeks, we’re sampling some of the limited-time highlights, upcoming events, and other “don’t miss” calendar events to help you hit every important date and make every minute count.
