To which my guild master and her hubby (who couldn't do Mythic if their lives depended on it) are eternally grateful.
As well, you can get all of Vision of Perfection from heroic.Rank 1 seems to be still 100% drop.Rank 2, now without a week to wait, recipe seems like a 100% drop (and the mats aren't bad, but I dunno if they were nerfed).Rank 3 seems so far to be about 50% from my limited testing. Or I'm lucky. I dunno.
I dread doing this because it'll have to be a pug and then only the once. however, the mechagnomes are way less wobbly than regular gnomes standing idle. i'll have to think hard about it.
Confirming the thread - with 1 minor addition - I only had to do Operation Mechagon: Workshop to get the achievement "Operation Mechagon - The Mechoriginator".
I never understood why Mechagnomes required a mythic run but Vulpera didn't. Especially considering how lopsided PVE is toward Horde. Was this supposed to encourage Alliance to do mythic PVE? All it did was reduce an already unpopular new race's population lol. Whoever does predictive strategic planning at Blizz needs to go back to school.
GOOD NEWS! (maybe this is too late at this point, sorry). I just finished unlocking mechagnomes BUT! I didn't have to do the dungeon, I only got to exalted but the moment I logged in with my Alliance toon I could do the quest to unlock them. I did everything on mechagnome but with my horde toon so I hoped not to the dungeon again, I'm glad this was as I expected :D
