Like clockwork, Tinkerfest has returned!
Take up your favorite wrench and celebrate all things gnomish, be they metal, combustive, mathematical, experimental, or a combination thereof! Adventures, rewards, buyables and crafted items await you, both new and familiar. You won’t want to miss all of the fun at Gnomeland Security, your headquarters for all things Tinkerfest, in Steamfont Mountains.
This year’s event runs through Tuesday, August 8, 2017 at 11:59PM PDT.
