First, a bit of lore text for the Goblin Weather Machine toy in WoW Dragonflight to get you excited:

Sunny weather not guaranteed. Goblin-made machines undergo somewhat rigorous testing and are mostly safe to use. Our goblin engineers are not responsible for any permanent climate changes brought to Azeroth, Outland, the Dragon Isles, or any other realms due to misuse of this toy. Void where prohibited.

You can get the Goblin Weather Machine via a new Twitch drop by watching any WoW Dragonflight stream on for a total of four (4) hours.
