This is a anniversary event that runs for 6 weeks where you create a level 1 gnome in Ak'anon. You find Tipsy Teena in Ak'Anon and hail her to begin the race.

You will race through several zones to Tipsy Teena in each zone. I believe you hail her and she punts you to the next area to race from. Tipsy Teena is on find so use ctrl F.

The zones where Tipsy Teena is in will be random each time you do the race. You will always start in Ak'Anon and finish in Unrest however. The races run about every 6 hours and will be broadcast to the server when they will start and end.

If you die, you spawn back at the last Tipsy Teena you hailed. The final hail to finish the race is done at Dibster `Dibs` Biroboddle. The first 10 to hail Dibster get a pick of 1 ornamentation of their choosing along with the gnome shirt. If you don't place in the top ten, you get a gnome shirt anyways.

Here is a list of some of the zones where the race is held.

Steamfont Mountains
Lesser Faydark
Greater Faydark
Butcherblock Mountains
Dagnor's Cauldron
Estate of Unrest

You can watch a stream of the launch of this event below.

Rules for creating your gnome for the race?

1. Are there any time restrictions on when your gnome is created? ie: can any level 1 gnome be used or does it have to be created the day of the race?
2. I made a gnome and put Ak'Anon as my start point but still got pushed into the tutorial. Is this avoidable or do I have to start the tutorial and get out and over to Ak'Anon before I level?
3. Are the competitors restricted to only having the items they start with as new made gnomes: @ the start of the race?; during the race?; @ the end of the race?
4. If the gnome is allowed to be made ahead of time, is skill training permitted as long as level 1 is not exceeded?

I'm sure there are more questions to ask, but I'm decaffeinated at the moment.

Thanks, Ewor.

1. No time restrictions that I found. I created one the day of the race when the announcement was made (very stressful trying to get out of tutorial in time ) and then made a second one ahead of time but then found they are reusable. Noticed a lot of the same gnomes camping in and out over the days it is running. So once your out of tutorial you may want to consider that option.

2. To get out of tutorial fast just go to Arias and say "ready to leave" or "I am ready to leave" - I forget which - and that will port you to pok.

3. No restrictions on buff or armor or weapons.

4. have not used my gnome for anything but the race but I don't see why not.

Consider this: your little gnome will be drunk, stinking drunk and it slowly wears off as the further you get in the race. There is no way to get your alcohol tolerance high enough as the drunken buff is cast on you at each check in point and is not affected by skill ups in drinking. You cannot remove this buff either. Just makes you walk funny really.

The gnome races ran from March 16th to May 10th this year so the race won't be available until next anniversary.

Found how to bypass tutorial and start character in Ak'Anon.
Emotes (in case you want to make GINA triggers)
