Jogu the Drunk
|Location||Halfhill Market, Valley of the Four Winds|
Jogu the Drunk is a jinyu and a member of The Tillers. Unlike the other members, Jogu's home is not a farm, but at the edge of the market's watering hole. Despite this and his near-constant inebriation, he is a valuable members of the Tillers due to his ability to predict what crops will grow best on any given day.
Jogu's easy to find - gazing into the bottom of a bottle of the cheapest Stormstout Brewery has to offer.
Mists of Pandaria
Jogu likes Lovely Apples and . For a small fee, Jogu can tell you what crop will be growing the most abundantly the next day, so that you can plant seed in anticipation of that. The better friends you are with Jogu, the cheaper his prediction price will be.
According to Watertaster Kurashel, Jogu originates from a far northern jinyu tribe. After his family died, he became an alcoholic, drowning his sorrows in apathy and wine. Other than those specific details, Jogu won't speak much about his past, even to other jinyu.
Gina Mudclaw explains that he eventually wandered into Halfhill one day, settling down by the watering hole at the market and hasn't left since. Rather than being considered a burden, the local farmers came to love him for his accurate crop predictions. Seeing as the player must initially pay for Jogu for this service, it is likely what the locals do, and how Jogu is able to afford his booze.
