Nixxle Logbook 006 – The Slums

5001
Baloon and filth, welcome to the slums!

I have to do it, i have to walk into the goblin slums in Orgrimmar, of all names to call this place why did they call it slums? well it looks like Bilgewater harbor slums, a shameful spot in the city, sometimes i hate goblins!

Nixxle Logbook 005 – Selling junk

WoWScrnShot_061917_232945
To the city, on a DINO!

From the jungle isle (it’s a volcanic isle now thanks to me!) we went the Horde capital Orgrimmar, i’ve heard alot about it from my fellow goblins, this is the first time i see the city, high walls, tall towers, spikes everywhere, it looks scary for me, i already miss Kezan.

A troll lady gave me this raptor to go quiclky into the city, that was akwarde, but i guess she is not the same as the trolls in Kezan, our slavers and now our slaves … or ex-slaves, i wonder what happend to them? what happened to my fellow goblins there? one day i’m going back to Kezan, it’s my home.

Collected balloons for the kid, he was happy he gave me horde balloon.

I must say Orgrimmar is confusing, need some time to learn how to navigate the city, it is so much larger than Bilgewater Harbor in Kezan, so many shops and all kind of people here, i saw the tauren for the firs time, cow-looking people but i never dare to call them cow, one kick from their strong hooves is enough to kill a goblin!

There is an auction house in the city, when i was running away from Kezan then that jungle island i didn’t forget to carry with me any kind of valuable junk, it’s junk for me but it have some gold value for people who never saw this junk, so i sold in the auction house all kind of items:

You see! people like buying trash, i’m now more than 400 gold rich, i may say i did fine, from losing everything to gaining a small fortune, not bad … not bad at all.

 

 

Nixxle Logbook 004 – it was a turtle

nixxle400
Pygmy Vs. Goblins

Going back from dealing with the naga, hiding under a pygmy silly hat, i found the Town in a Box attacked by horde of pygmy people, my fellow goblins used cannons to defend the towm, i could not wait for my turn to shoot these pygmy … why can’t they leave us alone? it’s not like we want to live here!

Their threat didn’t stop here, they killed goblins and turned them into zombies … goblies?! zogoblies? zomblies? aah .. whatever you want to name them, they are dead goblin walking slowly toward the town, i have to do something.

nixxle310
Killing their shaman was a step

So i went to their camp, killed some of them and the shaman responsible for the zombiefication (is this a word?!) of my fellow goblins, freed the prisoners, now i have to deal with the zombies and there is an invention for that, fight fire with fire .. errr i mean fight zombies with fire.

nixxle402
Fire shoes, the only way to be happy when killing zombies, only 99.99.99 gold

Then we went the large cave under the mountain, to kill the turtle god the pygmy worship, it wasn’t the best idea we goblin have that day, to be honest i think we should have left the turtle alone, first it is a turtle on fire, and huge, why should i deal with it?!

Volcanoth_Cataclysm

But dealing with it i did and the island started shaking, the mountain is about to erupt, what did i do in my life to experience the second volcanic eruption in two days?

nixxle404
Back on the beach, Horde Vs Alliance still going

Horde commander asked me to kill Alliance soldiers and fly a plane to destroy their planes, then sent me back to goblins who gathered around an entrance to a kaja’mite mine, Gallywix enslaved many goblins while he was away from us, time to end his rule!

nixxle406
Before the mine operation, happy to see the warrior trainer with us

Once again Gallywix proved to be pain in the backside, he used a warlock in the mine to overlook the whole operation of the mine, we dealt with warlock, threw his soulstone to the ground, collected the prisoners again (how many times i have to do that?!) then went to a new camp on the safe side of the island … mind you there is now safe place in here, we have to go.

nixxle403
One last visit to Town-in-a-Box, lava eating it slowly, a chance for a photo!

Gallywix made a camp for him in the other side of the beach, hired some pirates and still hold some slaves, he even managed to enslave the warrior trainer! how dare he?! i dealt with all this mess, and went to face Gallywix with the horde warchief, he was riding his robot because he is useless fat goblin without it.

Took us some time to take him down, i was ready to kill him on the spot, but Thrall decided to spare his life, and more than that he made Bilgewater Cartel part of the horde and the leader non other than Gallywix himself … what is wrong with Thrall?! i always hear is a wise shaman, but i don’t see this here, what a stupid thing to do.

nixxle407
On the ship at last, going to Orgrimmar.

From here on, i won’t write detailed events, since i’m doing the same quests everyone’s do while leveling, i’ll choose some events to write about, mostly show photos.

Nixxle Logbook 003 – Chickens!

Town in a Box is down there

Flying to the larger island in a rocket toward town in a box, the way this town work is simple, just add explosives!

nixxle31
Happy face for happy town!

It is a dangerous job to open a town, i think we need a new version, at least remote controlled explosives!

Town-In-A-Box_ground
Here it is, amazing .. right?! (source)

First thing i did is going the profession trainer, if we need to survive then i need to do more than just opening a town and killing monkeys with explosive banana.

nixxle32
Profession trainer … and the shoes of “ex-goblin” RIP Jas

From the machine i learned the basics of alchemy and herbalism, keeping the tradition of my family, i was told that one of my ancestors made the Hobgoblin, i’m not sure about that.

Anyway, after surviving the profession trainer, the town goblins needed some food, so i ran around the town attaching rockets to chickens and sending them flying to the town, what a glorious way to collect food! but that was not enough, i went to the west to search for a large mechanical chicken, to get it’s egg … yeah you read that right!

nixxle33
The mystical mechanical egg!

Now we have to face many threats in the island, Dinos, pygmy people and the Naga, what bring these naga here i wonder? goblins rarely hesitate to play dirty, so i lured naga kids with sea horse toys, we’ll use them to force the naga leader to surrender.

nixxle35
Playing dirty … no naga kid (fish?!) harmed before or after this photo

The leader was something else, something i never seen before, old goblins talked about octopus-looking creatures, whispering mad thoughts to all living things, i thought it’s just old folk tales.

nixxle36
Oh oh!

he (it?) said he remembered when my race was created, now that is a tale a want to hear! but alas i have to kill this octopus dude before he do any damage, also how old this thing is?! we don’t know goblin history other than some old folk tales, my fellow goblins have no interest in knowing our origins.

nixxle37
Old ruins in the northern part of the island, never seen anything like that before

In my way back to the town i was given a large helmet to go unnoticed by the pygmy tribe, it worked, the tribe was attacking our town.

The pygmy dude is happy to see me .. i guess!

 

 

Nixxle Logbook – 002: Unintentional chaos

nixxle021
The “Before” photo, beautiful yet savage

It was a tropical island, somehow we turned it into lava falls, we experienced another volcano eruption for the second time in two days, i’m not sure if i should be impressed or appalled by Goblins ability to leave nothing but destruction behind them, i guess unintentional chaos is in our blood.

Gallywix didn’t waste much time and climbed to the top of the shipwreck throwing comments every now and then blaming me for the whole disaster, while i’m doing everything to make sure we have a safe place in this hostile environment.

Monkeys stealing our supplies, dangerous dinos running and flying around, local tribe of pygmy, short ugly people with tiny brains, sharks around the island, the alliance and the horde at war, what could possibly go wrong?!

So i took back our supplies while feeding monkeys explosive bananas, Goblins like to solve everything with bombs, killed some dinos, went to help Foreman Dampwick to collect some Kaja’mite ore from a nearby cave, also taking photos for weird cave paintings, the pygmy are not so stupid after all! they trained monkeys to mine the ore.

nixxle020
I can’t stop staring at his chin!

After all that, fat Gallywix still doing nothing but talking, i went to look for the horde camp, if we want to survive we should seek help, i found nice orc lady, she asked me to help them against the alliance, then save the precious “cargo” who was non other than Thrall! the horde leader captured by the alliance!

We should build our town but not in this isle, my fellow goblins prepared a rocket to jump from the small island to the larger one, and there prepared Town in a Box, it is one of few goblin inventions which i’m really proud of, it is a town … in a BOX! all you need to add is explosions!

nixxle022
Happy to see the warrior trainer
nixxle023
helping the horde
nixxle024
The horde have cool panther!
nixxle025
on my way to alliance ships, gnome flying machine is impressive, i hate to admit

Nixxle Logbook – 001: it was a boring day

WoWScrnShot_061817_083917
BilgeWater Port

Bilgewater Port never change, it was filthy, chaotic, noisy, and yet we get things done, today was just another step to climb the ladder and find some place with fresh air:

  • My assistants Sassy Hardwrench wants me to check on Foreman Dampwick, she sent him an explosive gift, the lazy old goblin deserve it!
  • Dampwick told me the some mining trolls are getting lazy, our old slavers (now our slaves) stopped working, even asking for launch breaks!
  • I loath slavers, yet we are doing just that, i always tell myself that all of this will be temporary, i’ll reach the top and then get myself a place away from all this flith, it took me years of hard work to reach the job in the cartel, i can’t have the trolls slowing me down now, and the Kaja’mite is necessary for Goblins, it is what make us smart.
  • My assistants wanted me to collect debt, play a match of Footbomb, it’s all for a good image.
  • I went to Drudgetown slums to collect the debt, it makes me hate the trade princes, Goblins used to be slaves for the trolls, now they slave each other, but look who’s talking here?! i went to beat some poor Goblins for not being able to pay their debts, just for the good image.
  • In the Footbomb field i played against Steamwheedle sharks, we won of course, the last shot was into Mount Kajaro itself, it just happen that Deathwing himself shows up at the same moment, and here my dear Logbook where everything went wrong!
  • Deathwing attacked Mount Kajaro!
  • Earthquakes, that didn’t matter for Candy Cane, she wanted an easy life where i’m rich and she does not need to work, so it was a party and everyone is invited .. except Gallywix.
  • I prepared for the party, nice dress and cool shades, entertained the partygoers, then a pirates attacked the party and the whole port, at this time?!
  • Sassy told me Gallywix waiting for me, angry for not inviting him, he threatened me for being so ambitious, he knows i’m trying to overthrow him as the leader of the cartel, i’m sure he called the pirates to the port.
  • Mount Kajaro erupted, everyone wanted to run away but there is only one ship in the island, Gallywix’s! i have to give him all i own and more to have a place in his ship, so i did! i even stole from the bank to do that, i lived all my life in Bilgewater Port dreaming to run away, this is it!
  • Gallywix enslaved most people who could reach his ship.
  • Running away from Kezan, into a battle between the Horde and the Alliance, The Alliance attacked us with no warning, destroyed the ship, Gallywix ran away in his rocket, he left every one else for the bottom of the sea.
  • I was rescued, then i rescued other Goblins, we washed up in a tropical island.
  • I’m too tired, time to rest, tomorrow we have so much to do.

Nixxle Logbook – 000: Preface

WoWScrnShot_061717_221226

Sometimes you have to make your own fun, i love WoW but i don’t like the race to the end-game, i have character at level 110 and item level 891, chasing the higher iLVL is not fun, farming old raids for transmog sets gets repetitive quickly, and all of that is not the kind of thing i enjoy.

What i enjoy is the world itself, the settings, the NPCs and their stories, exploring the world, so i’m going back to do that, but i’m playing Horde this time, i always choose Alliance for my character, so it’ll be quite interesting, the rules are simple:

  • No heirlooms, leveling fast is not the goal here.
  • Finishing all quests in a zone before moving to other.
  • Must visit all goblin quest hubs.

I have to mention that GROMOGG was the inspiration to start this character, i chose a goblin because i think goblins are fun, their tropical starting zone is beautiful.

Nixxle will write the next log.
