Mercenaries (or mercs and sellswords) are soldiers for hire who fight for money or other recompenses instead of doing it for ideological interests.
After the defeat of the Horde during the Second War, the goblins realized their mistake and left the faction. They are now a neutral force, making money off every side. Goblin mercenaries could be hired at special laboratories found all over Azeroth.
World of Warcraft
Some players also sell their services as mercenaries, asking other people for money before doing something for them like escorting them.
