WoW Cataclysm: Goblin Zone Walkthrough
Before you begin questing it’s good to note that Goblins come standard with a few racial abilities including;
- Best Deals Anywhere (best possible gold discounts regardless of reputation)
- Better Living Through Chemistry (Alchemy skill increased by 15)
- Rocket Barrage (Launches belt rockets at an enemy causing fire damage)
- Rocket Jump (Activates rocket belt to jump forward)
- Time is Money (1% increase to attack and casting speed)
“Trouble in the Mines” will have you slaughtering 8 Tunnel Worms who are currently eating the valuable Kaja’Cola. While “Good Help is Hard to Find” will require you to keep the work going by disciplining 8 Defiant Troll slaves utilizing your super duper All-In-1-Der Belt. Head down to the mines as marked on your map and get to work! To discipline one of those pesky trolls, right click on one that is currently not doing any work and your belt will take care of the rest.
The Hot Rod comes standard with three basic abilities, all of which are fun, one of which is actually useful. The first ability - Punch It - increases your speed by 50% and as such you will probably find yourself hitting this as often as possible. The second ability on the bar is Honk Horn, which is pretty self explanatory, as is the third ability; Radio. To top off the fact you have a fancy new ride, all three of your current quests can be completed while your cruising around Kezan.
[protip]When it comes to cool things, the Hot Rod ranks quite high. You've got an awesome radio that pumps out Goblin tunes but it's not all about the car even if it's the best free vehicle in the game. Kezan is a massive locale and it's a long walk from A to B so try not to lose your car or dive bomb into the ocean if you can help it.[/protip]
Continue on to the bank picking up any replacement parts that you see. Once you arrive waltz right in and demand your money. No really hop to the head of the rather long line and talk to one of the clerks to get your Macaroons. Don’t worry about leaving your vehicle, any friends you have picked up along the way will hop right back into your Hot Rod once it’s re-summoned. Once turned in you will receive a whopping 250 experience and regain the quest “The New You” except this time with instructions to buy some Shiny Bling.
Once you have collected all four debts, check the map and pick up any of your friends you have not picked up so far, while stopping to collect all three of the pieces for your new outfit along the way. Once all of the quests are completed turn them in for some uber experience that will easily boost you right into level 3. Don’t forget to talk to your class trainer at this point to gain access to some new skills and abilities.
When finished turn in the quest to gain 320 experience (which should take you to level 4) and pick up the last quest in the chain, “Fourth and Goal”. Once accepted you will be thrust once again into the steelbot, and this time you are asked to throw a ball between two steel pipes. After you succeed the ground starts shaking, which we can assume is probably not a good thing.
Announcing your victory to Sassy gives you an extra 25 experience and opens up another quest from Chip Endale “Life of the Party”. “Life of the Party” requires you to well...be the life of your own promotion party. So throw on your fancy new clothes and bling bling and get ready to party at the KTC Headquarters pool.
Turn in “Life of the Party” to Sassy for 320 experience and pick up the quest “Pirate Party Crashers”. Apparently your party has gained the attention of some unwanted guests, and in order to save your career you need to do something about them. Take out 12 of your uninvited guests and return to Sassy for 550 experience and a startling revelation. Sassy believes the current Trade Prince is behind the disturbances at your party. Head upstairs to speak with him.
Head out of the mines and bust out your Hot Rod for “Robbing Hoods”. Enter the city proper and you will find Hired Looters everywhere. You need to collect their stolen loot in a rather unorthodox way; by running them over, you never even have to get out of the car. This quest is definitely on my list of top 10 quests of all time. While running over the 20 required Hired Looters, make your way towards the bank.
Assuming you have already taken out all your Hired Looters that leaves us with “Waltz Right In”. For this quest you’ll need to search your bags for your Mook Disguise that you received when accepting the quest. Head to Gallywix’s Villa on the far northwest of the zone, pop your disguise and walk on in, but avoid the pigs as they can smell through the disguise. The loot can be found in the two smaller buildings and in the main villa and are marked on your map. Once you have grabbed the loot head back to headquarters to turn in all four quests. Each quest rewards 550 experience each and should easily level you to level 6.
Go inside and overload the generator, turn on the leaky gas stove, and drop a cigar on the bed to ensure that you do it right the first time, then head back outside to activate the Gasbot Control Panel for what promises to be an explosion of epic proportions. Speak to the Claims Adjuster to gain 550 experience and collect your insurance money.
The Lost Isles
Even though you have barely escaped with your life you don’t get a break, speak to Geargrinder Gizmo to find out your ship sailed into a battle between Alliance and Horde, and also to pick up the quest “Goblin Escape Pods”. For this quest you need to search out and rescue 6 Goblins that have managed to make it through the journey. Sadly enough one of the few survivors is the Trade Prince. It really is too bad he didn’t get eaten by the sharks that inhabit these waters.
After saving your friends head back to shore to reunite with Sassy and turn in your quest. Your work is apparently never done though, as once you collect your belongings from Sassy three more tasks await your attention; “Get Our Stuff Back!”, “It’s Our Problem Now”, and “Monkey Business”.
After you have completed all three quests head back to the Shipwreck Shore and collect your rewards and possibly ding level 7. Once all three quests are turned in Sassy provides you with a new quest called “Help Wanted”. As it turns out there is a cave full of Kaja’mite on the island, however all the miners sent into the cave have been vanishing. The Foreman has come back with some crazy story about monkeys with mining picks in the cave, but Sassy wants you to investigate yourself.
At the end of the cave you will find a very dead Orc Scout who is carrying a field journal. Turn in “Miner Troubles” to Foreman Dampwick for 480 experience and return the journal and the pictures you took to Sassy for further inspection. After some examination Sassy deduces that you are probably once again on an island with an exploding volcano (you just can’t catch a break) and decides you should return the journal to the overseer of the Orc camp on a hill in the south east in a quest called “The Enemy of My Enemy”.
Kilag can be found literally almost a stone’s throw from the Horde Base Camp amongst some very nasty plants. Turn in “The Vicious Vale” to him to gain an easy 70 experience and pick up your next quest called “Weed Whacker”. As it turns out Kilag has gotten himself into a little bit of a pickle and wants you help to take care of the many plants that are attacking him and his crew. To do this make use of your belts handy dandy Weed Whacker tool and wipe out those nasty plants without a second thought. Right click to activate the tool and go for a plant killing joy ride.
Venture back through the Vicious Vale (thankfully all the plants are dead this time around) and make your way to Kilag. Once you have turned in “Forward Movement” to Kilag he will present you with “Infrared = Infradead”. In this quest you will need to team up with one of Kilag’s scouts and use special goggles, Goblin made of course, to kill 10 SI:7 assassins.
“To The Cliffs is the next quest in this chain and as the name implies Kilag wants you to head to the cliffs. In order to make travel faster Kilag places you on the back of his trusted companion of the feline sort and off you go. Once you arrive at Scout Brax turn in your quest and pick up “Get to the Gyrochoppa!”. Of course nothing in WoW happens without a little work, Brax wants you to fly this contraption, but first you have to retrieve the keys.
The Gyrochoppa sadly pilots itself and soon you will find yourself crash landing on the pirate ship. Fight your way into the bows of the ship, where you will find a cage holding a very surprising someone. The precious cargo turns out to be Thrall himself, who was apparently captured while unconscious.
After killing 50 Sailors, the Cyclone returns you to the Wild Overlook where you find Thrall waiting for you. Turn in “Warchief’s Revenge and collect your reward as well as 700 experience. Thrall takes his leave, but not without telling you that your futures are intertwined which is a sure foretelling of things to come. Report to Sassy who has also surprisingly found her way to the Wild Overlook.
The rocket does explode, but thankfully not before you’ve made it to the larger island. Foreman Dampwick has already made the trip and charges you with setting up the Town-In-A-Box. Simply climb on the pile of explosives and push the plunger and pow, a town will appear, either that or you’ll be blown to smithereens.
Hobart has been charged with gathering escaped cluckers, and as the self proclaimed greatest goblin mind of all time such menial labor is beneath him. Therefore he hands the quest “Cluster Cluck” over to you and charges you with rounding up 10 Wild Cluckers.
Of course you can’t always please everyone and that becomes apparent as Bamm Megabomb offers you the quest “Trading Up”. Unhappy with the thought of having to live off of Clucker eggs Bamm insists you help him obtain some “real” eggs. Bamm has set up traps on Raptor Rise just up the path to the east. To complete the quest place Clucker eggs in the traps and capture yourself some Raptors so you can take their eggs. Keep in mind there actually has to be a Raptor in the general vicinity of the trap for it to work. Return to Bamm after you have collected 6 Raptor Eggs.
Unfortunatly the biggest egg ever is a huge flop, but Hobart has another idea. Speak to Hobart to pick up “Who’s Top of the Food Chain Now?”. Hobart has it in his head that shark meat is the way to go, except there is one very big problem; The Hammer, the biggest shark of them all. Of course you are expected to swim out into the Dire Strait where The Hammer makes his home and collect 6 Shark Parts.
Greely plans on taking the Shark Parts and the remains of the Mechachicken to create a submersible that will allow you to rid the waters of The Hammer once and for all. Return to the shore and take over the controls to engage your “shark”. Once inside you will have access to three abilities; Freakin’ Laser Beam, Egg-splosive Barrage, and Repair.
There is no rest for the weary though, as you find out as Hobart offers you your next quest “Invasion Imminent!”. Your work is currently complete in the town, but you are needed elsewhere. Megs Dreadshredder has taken an expedition over the hills to the southeast where she is having some troubles with the snake-men. Seek her out at the western entrance to the Ruins of Vashj’eian to get your next mission.
Pick up “Bilgewater Cartel Represent” from Megs, and afterwards “Naga Hide” from Brett “Coins” McQuid who stands beside her. Megs and Brett both want you to head into the Naga ruins to complete their tasks. Megs wants you to replace 12 Naga Banners with Bilgewater Cartel Banners, while Brett requests you bring him 12 Intact Naga Hides. Venture into the ruins and complete both quests.
Once turned in the next quest in the chain “Irresistible Pool Pony” becomes available from Megs. Apparently nothing attracts baby Naga like a pool pony. Anyways, take the pool pony to the Vashj’elan Spawning Pool (where the giant tentacles are sticking out) and swim close to any hatchlings you can find. The hatchlings are guarded though so you may have to defeat the big Naga before collecting the hatchlings nearby. Do this until you have 12 hatchlings following you then lure them back to Megs and turn in the quest.
The Naga leader turns out to be one of the Faceless and since the Faceless don’t particularly like Naga babies, Megs plan backfires. Instead it looks like open combat will be your method of convincing instead. Don’t expect Ace to be of much help, as soon as things start to get hairy he turns tail and runs. Kill the Naga leader then return to Megs for more instructions.
Once you arrive it’s clear that Town-In-A-Box is already under seige, seek out Sassy and pick up “Town-In-A-Box: Under Attack” and begin to rally the defenses. To do this Sassy wants you to get into one of the B.C. Eliminators and take out the threat to the town. Head back to the main line of defense on the east side of the town and right click to gain control of one of the Eliminators.
Of course saving the town from certain doom wasn’t enough, you now have to set off to Oostan to take care of the small zombie problem, wipe out some pygmy Witch Doctors, and collect Rockin’ Powder which may or may not be the source of the pygmies powers. Ah well, all in day’s work I suppose.
OostanZombies vs. Super Booster Rocket Boots
Rockin’ Powder can be found in any of the pygmy villages and looks like a small pile of glowing purple dirt. Pick up 5 of these piles to complete this quest.
Three Little Pygmies
After you have completed all three questions head back down the mountainside to find Coach Crosscheck and his crew to turn in your quests and get your next assignment.
Lost CalderaRocket Boot Boost
Your Super Rocket Booster Boots have been infused with the Rockin’ Powder you collected from the pygmy villages. This quests tasks you with delivering said boots to Hobart Grapplehammer located inside the Lost Caldera. Don’t worry about getting lost though, simply click on the boots and hold on tight as they will take you exactly where you need to go.
Children of a Turtle God
After defeating Volcanoth, you’ll find yourself trapped inside the cave. Thankfully Sassy is on the job and has come to rescue you in a flying machine of sorts. Speak with Sassy to be rescued from the collapsing cave only to discover that the volcano has erupted and Town-In-A-Box is no more. But where has everyone gone? Sassy lands you at Warchief’s Lookout where you once again encounter Thrall, who informs you of some grim news. Trade Prince Gallywix has taken all of your Goblin friends prisoner.
Warchief’s Lookout/Tranquil CoastRepel the Paratroopers
Before you can rescue your friends you must help take care of those pesky Alliance forces. While the Alliance ships are gone, they are now using planes to drop paratroopers onto the coast. Follow the path to the coast and slay 15 paratroopers to complete this quest.
The Heads of the SI:7
Mine Dispoal, the Goblin Way
While you’re on the coast wiping out paratroopers you may notice the shoreline is littered with land mines. To add insult to injury the land minds are of Gnomish origin. Sassy charges you with detonating the land mines, Goblin style, which roughly translates into taking a satchel of grenades and blowing them up one by one. Right click on the satchel to aim and left click to let the grenade fly. Be sure to be a safe distance away before detonating the mines. Successfully detonate 12 to complete this quest. Keep in mind that stepping on the mines will cause them to explode, doing significant damage and knocking you down in the process. I learned this the hard way.
Return to Warchief’s Lookout to turn in this set of quests and to receive your next task from Sassy Hardwrench.
The Pride of Kezan
Return to Sassy to collect your reward and get your next quest.
The Warchief Wants You
Thrall is true to his word and he is ready to point you in the right direction to start rescuing your Goblin friends. Speak to Thrall to complete this quest and gain a new one.
Thrall wants you to head back to the coast and seek out Kilag and request that he let you make use of Bastia. The panther apparently knows the way to the captured Goblins. So once again head north from Thrall and venture back to the coast. Kilag can be found just at the enwd of the trail.
Ride Bastia and seek out and speak to Slinky Sharpshive. Simply accept this quest and you will instantly find yourself aboard Bastia’s back. She will take you exactly where you need to go. Once you arrive turn in the quest to Slinky.
Sky FallsThe Gallywix Labor Mine
Kaja’cola Gives You Ideas! ™
To say the least Assistant Greely is surprised to see you, and sadly enough does not have a brilliant plan to rescue everyone. However, perhaps if you acquire a Kaja’cola Zero-One drink she just might be able to come up with something. Head straight back the way you came and you will come across a can of Kaja’cola near the edge of the bubbling surrounded by dead fish. Pick it up and return to Greely so she can begin brainstorming.
Throw It On the Ground!
The second part of Greely’s brilliant plan of attack is to take out the cruel Blastshadow the Brutemaster. There is a problem though (of course) Blastshadow is a warlock and as such he keeps a succubus named Delicia Whipsnaps constantly at his side. However if you kill Blastshadow quickly enough the succubus will be returned to whence it was summoned. Greely also mentions that Blastshadow in typical Warlock fashion has a soulstone. In order to destroy him forever you must not only kill Blastshadow but destroy his soulstone as well. Easy right?
Blastshadow and his succubus can be found at the very north edge of the underground lake. Kill him quickly to rid yourself of the demon and the hurry to his body and right click his soulstone to collect it then throw it at his corpse to prevent him from resurrecting.
The third course of action is far more to the point, you simply must kill 6 Brute Overseers which can be found wandering everywhere in the mine. This quest will easily be completed as you complete the two before it.
Speak with Greely to turn in these quests and pick up the next.
Light at the End of the Tunnel
It’s finally time to get yourself and the rest of freed prisoners out of this mine before the volcano blows. To do this as quickly as possible Greely suggests you head out the tunnel on the north side of the cavern and use a mine cart to make your escape. Head west down the tunnel from where you
Wild Mine Cart Ride
For this quest you simply have to ride the Mine Cart to the end of line then speak with Assistant Greely once you arrive. Arriving in one piece is not required.
Bligewater Lumber YardShredder Shutdown
The Ultimate Football Uniform
To aid you in the upcoming fight against Trade Prince Gallywix, your rescued Goblin friends have proposed that you collect 10 Spare Shredder Parts that will be used to create the ultimate foot bomb uniform. Thankfully the lumber yard just south of Crosscheck’s location is littered with such parts, the shredder parts can also be obtained from the Steamwheedle Sharks.
Once both quests are complete return to Greely and Crosscheck for your next assignment.
Release the Valves
Once all the Valves are released return to the Oil Platform and use the Platform Control Panel to complete the quest.
The Shredder Parts you collected are perfect, however, the lubricant in them is useless. Collect Kajaro 0W Grade Oil from KTC Oil Bots while you are at the KTC Oil Platform to the northwest. The KTC Bots can be found wandering the Rig itself and the coastline just outside it’s entrance. Kill them until you have collected 4 Kajaro 0W Grade Oil.
The Fastest Way To His Heart
Some devastating news Chip Endale, your once loyal companion has decided to turn traitor and is currently out on the KTC Oil Platform doing the Trade Prince’s bidding. Not only that but he appears to be dating that trollop Candy Cane. The only logical answer to this betrayal is obviously to rip the Still-Beating Heart from his chest. To find Chip take the ramp onto the Oil Platform and take the first left. There you will find Chip standing outside a doorway. Kill him and collect his heart to complete this quest.
Goodbye Sweet Oil
It’s Time to blow up the Oil Rig and as usual there is a big red button to push that does just that. Press the Big Red Button by right clicking to complete this quest.
Return the remaining quests to Greely and crew to collect your rewards and gain your next task.
The Slave Pits
The time is finally come for some real action against the Trade Prince. Sassy has made camp at the slave pits, where she and a group of orcs are preparing to launch and attack. You of course should be leading said attack so make your way through the lumber yard to the path that will lead your directly to the slave pits. Speak with Sassy upon arrival.
The Slave PitsWhat Kind of Name is Candy Anyway?
It seems Candy Cane really does get around, since you disposed of Chip she has taken on a new boyfriend; the Trade Prince himself. It’s about time you teach her a lesson. Follow the path into the slave pits all the way to it’s end, there you will find Candy. Dispose of her to complete this quest.
With the volcano erupting and the attack on the Trade Prince pending you don’t really have the time to save those who continuously get captured. Never fear though, as Hobart has a plan. Simply take rockets left over from your ultimate foot bomb uniform, head down to the Slave Pits, and affix them to the cages of the captured. That will get them out of there in a hurry.
Once all three quests are complete return them to the top of the path just outside the Slave Pits.
Use Blitz to get you into the fray then follow up with Field Goal then use Illegal Contact until Field Goal is up again. It will be a close fight, but don’t panic you will prevail and you will be punted back to camp. The Trade Prince will finally see the error of his ways promising to reform the way the cartel is being run. He devotes himself to Thrall, and as a sign of good faith Thrall allows Gallywix to remain Trade Prince of the Bilgewater Cartel, and offers him and the cartel a new home in Azshara. The only stipulation is that the Bilgewater Cartel will become a part of the Horde. Gallywix of course accepts the offer and a new alliance is forged. For the Horde!
Gallywix DocksWarcheif’s Emissary
Thrall fully intends to induct the Bilgewater Cartel into the ranks of the Horde. Before this can be done, however, he needs to inform the new Orc in charge, Garrosh. To do this you are charged with delivering a package to Thrall’s Kor’kron friend on the docks at Bladefist Bay at your journey’s end. He will help you obtain safe passage into Orgrimmar. Speak with Sassy when you are ready to begin your voyage.
