Speaking at the keynote of the Gnomish Engineering Show, head Gnome Tinkmaster Overspark gleefully announced iRule, the device his team has been working on for the past six months. “Is your realm populated by jerks drunk on power, demanding unreasonable gear checks? With this device, everyone has a GearScore of 5500! Let them try and update their addons, we’ll crush their system!” Overspark admitted afterward that the inspiration came for the device after he was refused admittance to an Ulduar raid because he didn’t have T9 gear. “Why the #!@$ do you think I want to run Ulduar, for kicks?!” he exclaimed. Overspark’s main competitor, Goblin Engineer Nixx Sprocketspring, attempted to demonstrate his own device later that evening, but it (and he) exploded two minutes in. This was met with wild applause and a standing ovation.
