Blizzard Entertainment updated the Leader Short Stories section with a new story about the Gnome’s High Tinker Gelbin Mekkatorque. The story titled “Cut Short” is written by Cameron Dayton.

This is a very cool read that gives us a new view into the mind and heart of Mekkatorque, and some of the motivations behind Sicco Thermaplugg’s betrayal. The outcome of the trap threatening Mekkatorque in Gnomeregan is unexpected. Only complain is that we needed five players to defeat Thermaplugg, and Mekkatorque soloed him and a handful of Troggs with a single … wrench.
