The Gnome

race logoThe Gnome starts off in the far city of Ak'Anon on the continent of Faydwer and generally hunts in the Steamfont Mountains during his or her formative years. Gnomes get their own unique trade skill: tinkering. What is the best strategy for playing a Gnome? What zones and cities should you take him to and which ones should you avoid? Which factions should you work on improving, and which factions should you be wary of decreasing? What are the best quests in Ak'Anon for the beginning Gnome? Where are the best shops in Ak'Anon? How should you role play your gnome?

Post your strategies on how to best play a Gnome, and read, rate and comment on those posted by others.

Gnome bonus?

Since they took away the xp penalty, do gnomes have any special ability that would make them equal compared to say an ogre or troll (other than pure sexiness)? I heard they used to have a higher innate ivasion due to smaller statue, is that still implemented?
advice plz

If a non twink stay in the tutorial doing the various quests there for good experiance and some decent weapons and armor...after 10 get temp and go to either crushbone or blackburrow till around 14 to 15 then head for paludal caverns ..after that the world is pretty much your oyster...remember to practice hide sneak and do pickpocket on the mobs you are fighting...good luck

Yah im not sure how to reply to the gnoem special power one, but i did notice i could tank better in BoT than in Plane of Valor at one time. BoT is higher lvl zone but full of giants. Actually had harder time tanking Plane of Valor than Bastion of Thunder and kinda wondered why. It makes sense

It was confirmed when this game weas released that gnomes have a special trait to make giant races/monsters miss when they swing. Back in 99 I was playing a gnome mage outside of the caves in steamfont, I was level 15 and sitting down when the minotour hero spawned and swung at me ..... HE MISSED ! WHILE I WAS SITTING AT THAT ! This only worked VS "giant" type monsters, and i'm not sure it's still in the game.

I have a Lvl 70 Gnome Warrior and i love him to death. Some things i have noticed being 70 lvl's as a gnome and then some, that us gnomes stick together. I dont know if its gnome pride or if we just enjoy the company of each other alot kinda like packs of whild chihuahuah's, but gnomes help other gnomes out. Also as a Gnome Warrior im pretty rare and find that EVERYONE remembers my char. Well dont forget, gnomes rule, and if u choose a gnome abide the gnomish codes and represent where your from : )

Love being a gnome! Lvl 70 Gnome Warrior

gnome monk
# Aug 31 2004 at 8:24 AM Rating: Decent
Well first off, a monk is a class in everquest, not a warrior without weapons. And secondly, if you look in your instruction booklet or simply log on and try to create a gnome monk, you'll find it to be impossible. The only two races that can be monks are Humans and Iksar. Just using a little common sense tends to help a whole lot...

How do you start your own guild
# May 24 2004 at 7:56 AM Rating: Decent
bah! the game is about having fun. i've seen a few halfling and gnome warriors, sk's, pallies, and rogues at 65th level in uber guilds, bonking away beside their more massive counterparts. i enjoy playing my little 65th level gnome mage, and that's the only stat that counts.
Picture it!

I really want to make a gnomish monk. Picture it! Gnomish leap kick LOL!

I made a gnome Paladin the other day... Man is it awesome. I was in the bazaar one day, and i just started buying stuff for a Gnome Paladin untill I was OOM (out of money). The plate-helm for a gnome is so cool, it looks like goggles, and there are ear and a nose guard. He's so fun, I got him to lv 20 in three days.

On the whole Gnomes make damn fines Wizards. However IMHO i'd opt for the Dark Elf. But as you have a 51 you'll probably understand that at later levels and if twinked race does not make a difference.
Gnomes are not KOS everywhere and get tinkering but DE's are fun to play if up for the challenge.

Do gnomes get an exp bonus?
Gnomes are teh pwnzorz!!!
# Jan 04 2004 at 9:36 PM Rating: Excellent
You know that deep down you love them all. Especially with the new luclin graphics system. They make such a cool necro!! Maybe all you anti-gnome people should try being a gnome before you go and talk all this smack about them :).

yes i agree i like gnomes there a good race to start off...i have a necro,chanter and a mage that are all gnomes. even though they may be short they have advantages. (face it i played delf and helfs and they suck)
