This companion is a rare tier Dwarfish archaeology item. It is created by discovering and "solving" 100 Dwarf Archaeology Fragments. Players may utilize up to three Dwarf Rune Stone to aid in the solving of this item. Each Dwarf Rune Stone is the equivalent of 12 Dwarf Archaeology Fragments.

Once completed, an entry on the Clockwork Gnome can be found in players' archaeology tab: "Mechagnomes were created by the titans, apparently as servants and caretakers, much like the earthen. This mechagnome was likely damaged because it is no longer focused on its original tasks and seems content to follow you."

100 Dwarf Archaeology Fragments may seem like a lot but if you put on 3 maximum of 3 Dwarf Rune Keys, then you only need to farm 64 Fragments to complete this little guy, definitely a worthwhile farm though.
Dwarf dig sites can be found primarily in Burning Steppes, Searing Gorge, Badlands, Loch Modan, and Arathi Highlands.

This little guy is an amazing pet. I use him in the celestial tournament for Zao and Xu-Fu. The following team can take BOTH of the legendaries out without healing, if used correctly:

 

Sunreaver micro sentry - Fel immolate, Lightning Storm

Cogblade Raptor - Exposed wounds

Clockwork gnome - Metal fist, Build turret.

 

Plain and simple really, Fel immolate then lightning storm. Swap to raptor and apply exposed wounds then go crazy with gnome turrets. Will tear any beast to shreds.

This guy is a beast (umm, a mech!) in Pet Battles.  Not only does he have a good DoT (the turret is really like a dot that can stack) but he heals and rezzes, as a mechanical.  Kicked my patootie, so now I want him!!

I've wanted one of these guys as a pet since Wrath of the Lich King. You could have Jeeves and Train Wreckers, but those don't follow you mindlessly to perils and dangers in Azeroth, do they?

The only thing that would make this pet better is if he had a Gilnean accent to match his fancy-pants moustache.

This is the leader of my battle pet team.  As others have stated, he has a heal, a terrific dot (the turret cannon) and he's got moves that work on beasts or other mechanicals, and a really great move against dragonkin.  I can't reccomend him enough.

@Khatee: You can get a second or even a third gnome; you just have to do the archaeology with a different character. While the pets are account-wide, your archaeology solves are completely individual. This will work with all the archaeology pets (voodoo figurine, pterrordax hatchling, etc)

This guy is GREAT against Bloodknight Antari's third pet, the dragon Netherbite. His second dodge, Soul Ward, is a pain, but the Gnome's turrets easily remove it and continue to do damage.  I use Onyxian Whelpling's Tail Sweep through the first pet, until she dies sometime on the 2nd, then a leveling pet, then Clockwork Gnome to finish the battle.

Gotta be my most used mechanical pet. He's my goto guy for tamers and the celestial tournament. Although Lil Bling has also made quite the impression on me as well.

    This is one of the pets I use the most. It is great for PVP with Railgun, Blitz, and Build Turret it will do verry well aginst Dragons, mechanicals, and beasts. When I ust this pet in PVE I usualy switch out the Build Turret ability for the Launch Rocket It usualy one shots most beasts and helps a lot when fighting battlemasters.

I'm so happy, some guy/girl just sold this on the AH for the affordable price of 400gold! First thing I did was click buyout as soon as I could, knowing this is a rare find! Now I can hopefully find that darn crawling claw by returning Restored artifacts and turning these in to Tol'Vir fragments! :-p

Had a mini pet battle tournament with some friends yesterday. Everyone had pets at level 10, and the bulk of the teams' members were rares (with mostly uncommons to round them out). 

 

The winning team– not mine, sadly– went undefeated with the super-effective combination of:

 

Clockwork Gnome (Metal Fist / Repair / Build Turret)

Celestial Dragon (Breath / Ancient Blessing / Moonfire)

Curious Wolvar Pup (Punch / Snap Trap / Whirlwind)

 

The Wolvar Pup's Whirlwind was an effective opening move, and the Dragon's Breath can pummel you turn after turn. But it was the Gnome's turret-building that was just brutal.

His Build Turret ability is probably my favorite pet attack. Awesome :)

You definitely need to do Archy in Eastern Kingdoms for this one since there are so many more Dwarf sites. Kalimdor favors Night Elf sites The main issue is that You will make a ton of common items more than once before any rare items are offered. It is random which rare ones come up. Therefore you will do a lot of artifacts before you get any pets. I recommend you watch TV while you go for these Archy pets or it will drive you nuts. The Tol'vir ones are the hardest.

This pet is great against Major Payne. Two hits with the rocket almost always kill Grizzle outright (if he survives with a few HP, any single hit will finish him), and this pet has enough HP to survive that long, since it has a speed advantage and goes first. I go with Railgun in the first slot, so he can take a shot or two at Payne's mech after Grizzle is down. I have never lost a battle to Payne leading off with this guy, and routinely use the fight to powerlevel Elementals and Aquatics.

This guy was the first mech pet I got to 25 way back when.  Lead off with Build Turret, and mix in Metal Fist while the turret is on cd.  Does pretty good chip damage with a couple turrets up.   Use Repair at around 50% health, and as long as your opponent doesn't have any big-hitting abilities, it will proc at least by the time your failsafe mechanism kicks in.

@ Covetius: And if the gnome uses Launch Rocket instead? What then?

 

Just because its most unique move has a family of abilities that hard counter it does not make the pet as a whole useless. You're an idiot if you honestly think that it does.

Thought to be an original construct of the titans, the clockwork gnome has some gears smaller than the eye can see.
