So I’m A Goblin Convert

Meet Miyu.

Last night, I finally got around to levelling my Goblin a bit. I know I said I wasn’t so bothered about the new races, and I’ve always hated Goblins because they’re annoying and small and green, and they were stupid, but after playing with the character creation screen alone, I became a bit of a convert. The females actually don’t look half bad. I think they’ve made their way up to my second favourite Horde race – they haven’t quite taken over Blood Elves, but they are damn cool.

It wasn’t until I started levelling Miyu the Enhancement Shaman (which by the way is a name that I believe is now on its’ 3rd character, she has been a Rogue and a Warrior until now) that I decided exactly how awesome they are. You get a fecking vehicle mount! I wasn’t too big a fan of the Goblin mount, I’m still not, but man I want that vehicle mount it’s brilliant and it even has a radio setting. I had fun running over Goblins with it as well, hush.

I like that Blizzard gave you a group of friends, and I absolutely love Globber (the big guy in the middle) he’s brilliant. Though I’m really not that fond of the boyfriend. It’s nothing to do with “Well what if I’d prefer a girlfriend instead?” or anything like that, no, he’s just a bit of a tosser.

After all the being scared shitless thinking you’re about to get “Stood in the Fire” on your Goblin alt, parties, running over pirates, and finding lesbians sat in Gallywix’s bed (I didn’t ask, each to their own), you get to be a true Goblin and set fire to things. With explosives.

Yes, I think I’m going to like this race. I’m officially a Goblin convert.

  1. Oh hells yes! I loves me some goblin, no doubts. It was the first time in… well, ever, that I felt compelled to read the quest text. The sheer number of explosions in their starting chain is enough to win them top standings above any race in my book.

    And yeah, your significant other is quite the tosser, but… well… No, I shan’t say more…

    I’ve already informed my alli associates that I might just have to be their mortal enemies. Now if they could only be druids. That would be one goofy looking cat form.

    1. A. Omg it’s yoou! I wondered where you got to, welcome back! <3
      B. Totally thought you were insulting my actual boyfriend and I was thinking well hey, wtf did I say to warrant that? :P

      I know what happens with him though and yay \o/ just didn’t want to say more than I did so I don’t ruin too much for people who haven’t had chance to see it yet :D


  2. You’re absolutely right about the female models. I thought they wouldn’t turn out too well but to my surprise they look pretty good.

    I haven’t tried their starting area yet but I will… eventually. So much on my Cataclysm plate and so little time to eat it all up =(.

    1. Plenty of time to do it though, doesn’t mean you have to try it out now at all! All I’ve really done so far is stuff on my main, levelled JC on my Warlock and started on those dailies, and started the Goblin starting zone. Haven’t touched Worgen or really any other alts… okay I tamed stuff on my Hunter and moved her to Vashj’ir, shh, I’m not an altoholic *shifty eyes*

  3. I am utterly in love with the goblins, IMO blizzard have done a fantastic job on character design and variety there!
    I keep hearing how awesome the starting area is too – I can’t wait to get some holiday and finally go there myself. ^^

    1. They really have. I hated Goblins before.. they were so squeaky, just generally bugged me.. They really have done a good job to change my opinion so much!
