Why does Gnomish mech lump together the humanoid gnomish robots/suits and the type of steam armor that Thermaplugg has? Is it because both can act as both suits and robots? I have seen creature pages like this be split into subcategories on less evidence, but this page does not elaborate on the connection. Maybe it is because the pages is a stub that does not elaborate on anything at all...--SWM2448 23:31, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

There are no steam armor listed in the "notable gnomish mechs" list. The only indication I see is the image. Maybe it will need to be changed so that it isn't misleading. GVJB (talk) 23:38, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
The image can be changed. The steam armor units are listed in the category. I was just wondering about the reasoning, if any.--SWM2448 23:42, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
I think it just comes with lack of named devices... technically all gnome devices are Gnomish mech... but none of them seem to have proper names. User:Coobra/Sig4 23:44, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
The article describe the mechs as one-eyed and having claw appendages. The steam suits don't look like that.GVJB (talk) 23:46, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
We could fall back to the model names, as usual. The Monster Guide names a few of them (in varying contexts, sometimes with multiple names each). Maybe there are actual names somewhere. However, going off model alone may be misleading. This page is describing a specific model of mob, but are these two thing the same (one just bigger)? --SWM2448 23:52, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
The bigger ones are more of a suit, like the shredders, only 1 is self controlled I think.. the one in Borean Tundra during those mechagnome quests. User:Coobra/Sig4 00:05, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
The smaller ones can also be suits, with the Peacekeeper Security Suit and the new Gnomeregan Battle Suit.--SWM2448 00:10, September 20, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm.. that's right... heh, we'll just leave it as is for now, I'm sure we can think of something.User:Coobra/Sig4 00:13, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Anyway... if we go by model names, gnomish mech doesn't even exist... not sure if it might have back in the day, but they're located under Gnomespidertank. The little guys are Gnomebot, and the larger ones are Gnomepounder. User:Coobra/Sig4 00:20, September 20, 2010 (UTC)


So going through the books, I see nothing too much except that the Arcane Nullifier was based off the Crowd Pummeler and that Thermaplugg vehicle is a steam-powered battle suit, aka steam armor... supposedly one of a kind, but of course that will change every xpak... cause why let a good model go to waste right?

Anyway, Gnomish mech is now a disambiguation page and everything on it was split among Arcane nullifier, Crowd pummeler, and Steam armor. If anyone has objections or comments... perhaps sources for better names, please bring them up. User:Coobra/Sig4 04:26, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

I can not find anything major. Some tidbits: Gnomebot Operating Boots exist (referencing the model name of the pummelers), as does the XM-024 Pummeller (possibly supporting or referencing the "crowd pummeler" name). Alliance 15 [30] Gyrodrillmatic Excavationators mentions "bots and mechs" in Gnomeregan (likely a general description, take it as you will). Also, Monster Guide names Thermaplugg's steam armor "Thermaplugg battle armor". I think it is best to keep the current names.--SWM2448 01:19, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
