First a little back story. For years High Tinker Mekkatorque has hidden the fact that he has been slowly going mad. Ever since he was betrayed at Gnomeregan he has been ill. The effects of Thermapluggs weapon slowly chipping away at his health, at his sanity.
Sargeras decided to use this growing weakness to his own advantage sending one of his agents disguised as a gnomish inventor with an ingenious break through. The engineer claimed to have discovered how to reverse the curse of flesh by transferring consciousness into a robotic construct very much like Mimirons own body. Mekkatorque saw this as his way to heal his battered body and all too quickly in a bid to save himself he commanded that he be the first to undergo the procedure.
What Mekkatorque didn't realize was that he just handed himself over to Sargeras' control. In his new lab an enslaved Mekkatorque now works to convert more gnomes over to the burning legions cause. Not all gnomes can see through the deception and too many are all to ready to give up their fleshy bodies in the hopes of immortality. Too late do they realize their folly.
