What? Stop looking at me like I'm some sort of insane person. You don't know what it's like being a princess."

Princess Poobah is a level 42 quest giver located on Jaguero Isle in the contested territory of the The Cape of Stranglethorn. She is being held prisoner by Skymane King Mukla. Poobah has a very good throwing arm as she is able to toss many written notes in bottles out to sea.

 [Crumpled Note] informs that she was once held captive by Zanzil the Outcast.

  • The name Poobah is a reference to the character of the Grand Poobah, the Lord High Everything, from the operetta "The Mikado", and has come to be used as a mocking title for someone self-important or high-ranking and who exhibits an inflated self-regard.
  • Since her captor King Mukla is an analogy to Donkey Kong, it is likely that she is titled "princess" because one saves a princess from Donkey Kong in the original arcade game.
    • However if so, this is a mistake. While Mario (then known as Jumpman) is most famous for rescuing Princess Peach when she is captured, in Donkey Kong he was merely rescuing his non-royal girlfriend Pauline.
