I like to inspect other players, i always do that, to check gear, to see their guild, but mostly to see their transmog and what items they use, sometimes i find new players, usually they have no guild, they don’t use heirlooms, so i offer help sometimes, usually free bags, or if they ask for help i try to help.
Today, i saw someone in Pandaria, a dwarf level 88, no guild and no heirlooms, i thought this is a new player, i have Son of Animus pet, i tried to sell in the Auction House 3 times and no one buy it, so i thought of giving it to the dwarf Paladin, whispered him, told him i have this free pet, do you want it?
After a long wait, he asked why i’m offering it for free? i said i already have one, asked again if he wants it, he said no thanks, i typed “weird” but removed that before sending “alright … have a nice day”
I don’t have energy to argue, the dwarf feels suspicious of free gifts, which i think is a good thing but not in this context, i’m offering a virtual pet in a virtual world, what harm there is to fear? sigh … sometimes helping other players is harder than killing raid bosses.
This is my story today, and here is some random screenshots.
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!
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.
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:
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.
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.
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?!
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?
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
