K3 is a neutral goblin base camp located on the southern base of Storm Peaks on the continent of Northrend. [40.6, 85.6] The goblins are out to loot the titan machines in the peaks but are having problems with the local wildlife.

K3 is also the location for "Honest" Max - an NPC who will give away a free flying mount, to players that are level 77 and have not purchased [Cold Weather Flying]:

Inspiration

K3 may be inspired by the mountains in the Karakoram mountain range which includes mountains originally named K1 to K5. K2 is the second-highest mountain on Earth after Mount Everest.

Also a possible reference to "K-3" a mining planet in the movie "Serenity" created by Joss Whedon.

Many of the goblin defenses are reminiscent of the game Team Fortress 2 by Valve. These include sentry guns, demolition bombs, sappers (although in this case they are people and not devices), and teleporters.
