postheadericon Goblins and Gold.

Apparently, the future is so bright, we may have to wear shades. Ok, that’s old news, but for those of us planning to start new characters in Cataclysm (as opposed to rushing our existing ones to 85 – we can only do one thing at a time you know). then for me the thought of the Goblin class, with it’s emphasis firmly on trade is utterly intriguing.

It’s a shame that currently the Beta does not have them implemented so well. It’s hard to tell what is going to happen.

Here’s a recap of the talents we can expect though – then my thoughts on what I might do with some of them.

  • Goblin Racial – Best Deals Anywhere – You always receive the best discount regardless of faction.
  • Goblin Racial – Pack Hobgoblin – This racial in Cataclysm will call your personal servant allowing you bank access for a duration of 1 minute. 30 mins cooldown.
  • Goblin Racial – Better Living Through Chemistry – Goblin Alchemists will have their skills increased by 15. . 
  • Goblin Racial – Rocket Barrage – This Goblin racial ability launches your belt rockets an an enemy, dealing fire damage. 2 min cooldown.
  • Goblin Racial – Rocket Jump – This goblin racial trait will activate your rocket belt to jump forward.
  • Goblin Racial – Time is Money – 1% increased attack and casting speed.

Best Deals Anywhere. Ok, on the one hand this should mean that grinding faction rep for anything other than end game items is a waste of time. End game items you often need the rep just to be allowed to buy. Oh and cross faction mounts of course.

Pack Hobgoblin For me this is a game changer. So for resource harvesters, this is an absolute must. Imagine. Grinding for resources. Skinning for example. No down time required, and everything waiting for you when you return to a city.

Better Living Through Chemistry Blizzard have changed the spec for this. 15 point boost to alchemy, or a boost to the effect of potions and elixirs with no boost to the profession skill itself. I’ll wait and see which one it is. It’s almost definitely the former to balance the Worgen’s 15 point boost to skinning – but we will wait and see.

Rocket Barrage Burst damage, and very decent scaling burst damage at that. I would like to see the animation for this. Sounds fun.

Rocket Jump Get out of – or into trouble quickly. Heroic leap? Or “Run away”. What made heroic leap was that you targetted a mob and leapt towards it. A random thrust anywhere is a different matter altogether. Possibly more useful if used expertly, but could also land you in a lot of trouble (like over the edge of a cliff for instance).

Time is money. The mathematicians amongst you will remind me that a 1% increase in casting speed does not actually equate to a 1% increase in damage and/or healing(I know). But a decent buff all the same.


What do you all think? Is having a Goblin with two gathering professions a no-brainer with this skill set?

postheadericon Why Bother Levelling Now?

With Cataclysm on the horizon you might be tempted to pack in the levelling. I know that many players in my guild are certainly having some summer “downtime” and looking forward to the update and patch 4.0 before they kick off again, but there are reasons to get levelling – and get some gold tucked away

You want to go straight to the new high end content? Better be level 80 then…

There are two schools of thought here, and maybe like me you are torn between what to do when the game comes out. New content, or levelling up a Worgen or a Goblin.

You can’t do both.

Many will want to get to max out a character or two early. To do this you will need to be level 80 when Cataclysm hits, and I seriously recommend having a draw full of gold to get you there.


Expect gold sinks to be coming at you left right and centre.

New Cataclysm Illustrious professions – Crafting up to 525 is going to cost you BIG. Note to enchanters. Remember how much your titanium rod cost you (it cost me almost 2000g) expect your rod ALONE to set you back between 4000 and 6000 gold pieces

So flying around Azeroth… cheap? – Ha ha, yeah REALLY cheap. Expect some new talent, profession level or device to allow you to fly over Azeroth. And expect that to cost three times more than your epic flying training.

Equipment – Do you buy gear? I know I shouldn’t, and when I’m going through a zone I’ve hacked through a hundred times before I trust whatever reasonable gear I happen to be wearing, but for hacking through from level 80 to 85, I’m thinking I need some serious duds. I’m going to be doing many quests for the first time. Blizzard reckon each level will be as long as 78-80 was as a minimum.

I don’t know about you, but I’m expecting certain quests to require the “new” flying ability. I’m anticipating that the best time to sell the massive 525 enchants will be in the first 3 months after the expansion hits. I want to be level 85, and have the gold to do that without grinding away and wasting time. I want to be equipped to go into the brand new instances!

Having level 80’s with pockets full of gold ready for when the chequered flag is dropped on Cataclysm’s release day is pretty much a must for me. I’m taking no chances.
